FRIDAY, DECEMBER, 17, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN REVIEW -° FORECAST On Missco Farms By a. H. CARTER, Assistant Count? Agent Deadline for making application to the Arkansas Seed Council for either registered Lee or Dorman soybeans is January 1, 1955. There will be approximately 500 bushels of Dormans and 1,000 bushels of Lee soybeans for state Wide distribution. Application forms are available in this office. Dormans Prove Satisfactory ,The Dorman soybean seems to have lived up to expectations in the county this year. The Dorman is a new variety which is normally about 18 days earlier than Ogdens. H C. Knappenberger at Blytheville said his 40 acres of Dormans averaged about 24 bushels per acre this-year in comparison to an average of 26 bushels for his Ogdens. The maturity of his Dormans was about three weeks earlier than that of'Ogdens. Mr. Knappenberger is well satis- Jied with" his Dormans and believes they have a place in the county to help lengthen the harvest period, and for use where small grains or alfalfa are to be planted in the Richard Rose of Roseland said their Dormans averaged about 35 bushels per acre, about the same as Ogdens planted at the same time on land equal in fertility. Richard started combining his Dormans September 15, approximately five weeks earlier than Og- dens. He says that Dormans do shatter but believes they shatter less than Ogdens. Ed Hardin of Dell said his Dormans averaged 23 bushels per acre this year. Ogdens planted on the same day just across the ditch averaged 11 bushels per acre. However, some Ogdens plantec later and on better land averaged 43 bushels per acre. Mr. Hardir said his Dormans were at leasl two weeks earlier than the Ogdens Lee Soybeans The new Lee soybean seems to have come up to its yield expectations this year (which is as gooc or slightly better than Ogden), but It seems to have been later in maturity than normally expected. A number of reports over the state! ndicate that Lees were approximately three weeks later than Ogdens this year. Experimental results have indi cated they are normally about one week later. ' Spring Oats Several farmers have recentl; asked about spring sown oats. A comparison of yields of winter anc spring oats shows spring oats can be expected to yield much less in Arkansas in most years that winter, oats. An Agricultural Experiment Station report on small grain yields in Arkansas, 1946-50, shows the aver- 40 bushels for spring oats. These results are from the main station at Payetteville, the only location where spring oats were tested. Farmers who do plant in the spring should plant & regular spring variety and not t winter variety. Strawberry Plants Available A summary of strawberry plants inspected by the State Plant Board revealed three local sources of certified Blakemore plants at present. They are O. J. Hueter, Everett Kennett and Jimmy Kennett, all of Leachville. At present the Blakemore varie- y is being grown almost exclusively in commercial plantings in Arkansas. An extension leaflet, 'Growing Strawberries in Arkansas," is available in this office. Nitrogen Supply for 1955 U.S.D.A. estimates indicate the itrogen supply for 1955 will be increased about nine per cent over he 1954 supply. Woody N. Miley, extension soils specialist, says indications are hat the total supply will be adequate for the 1955 crop; however, transportation and storage limita- ions are expected to cause distri- jution problems during the spring rush if too many farmers wait un- il spring to purchase nitrogen ma- ;erials. Farmers should stock both liquid and solid forms before March 1 in order to avoid a shortage during .he time when fertilizer should be applied. I urge you to make use of your Arkansas soil testing service. These soil tests are invaluable in determining your fertilizer needs. Results are available at present within a. week from the time the soil samples are mailed. Missco Men Named by NCC Several from County Are Delegates To Convention GBADY, Ark. (Special) — Fifteen cotton industry leaders from Arkansas will represent their area at the 17th annual meeting of the National Cotton Council at Houston. Texas, January 31-Pebruary 1, Joe C. Hardin, vice-chairman of the Council's Arkansas unit, announced today. Council delegates representing the six basic segments of the industry (producers, ginners, warehousemen, merchants, cottonseed crushers, and spinners) will convene at Houston to formulate the policies and programs to be executed during 1955 for increasing the consumption of cotton. In announcing the delegates comprising the Arkansas unit, Mr. Hardin declared, "Since the beginning of the National Cotton Council sixteen years ago when all branches of the raw cotton industry banded together to increase consumption, cotton has scored big competitive gains in the fight for textile markets. "Today we have better cotton, better processing, better design- value of those products. "Yet the challenge to cotton's markets is constantly bciiv? intensified. That is -why the Council's programs are so vital to the welfare of our industry. We must continue to sell more cotton through advertising, make further quality Improvements through research, increase efficiency through modern farming, and gain greater support an dunderstanding through public relations." Delegates elected to represent the Arkansas cotton industry branches include: Producers: Joe C. Hardin, Grady, Ark.; Harold P. Ohlendorf, Osceola, Ark.; and Lawrence C.

This is ndditlon- il evidence of the ability of sweet- clover to withstand severe dry venther. agronomists at the University's Agricultural Experiment station announced. This finding originally came to Jght unexpectedly during the 1352 drought when several varieties of red and sweetclover were planted or other test purposes at the Agri- lultural Experiment Station farm. Although the planned test failed because of the extreme dry weather, out of the failure was born the cnowledge that certain sweetclover •arieties could hold their own .vhen other forage was fatally suffering from lack of water. Carrying on with the findings accidentally brought to their atten- !

Shumnn, of Sullivan, 111., yesterday was unanimously elected president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. Shuman, president of the Illinois Agricultural Assn., and a small stock and grata farmer, succeeded Allan B. Kline, who announced his resignation on the grounds of ill health Monday. The federation, holding its 36th annual meeting, interrupted discussion on 100 pages of resolu- .tions to elect Shuman. Sloan, Strawberry, Ark. Ginners: R. S. Barnett, Jr., Altheimer.

And again during the even more severe drought years of 1953 and 1954 the swoetclover prospered, especially the Spanish. Wise. A-46, and Evergreen varieties. Williamette, C o m in o n White, Common Yellow, and Madrid were other varieties planted in tile 1953 test. Willie they produced lower yields if forage than the first three mentioned varieties, Common Yellow and Madrid matured two weeks earlier than any of the others, and a month earlier than Evergreen. An advantage of early maturity is being able to harvest in time for seeding of a summer crop, it is pointed out. On the other hand, late maturing: extends grazing appreciably. The tests established that sweet- clover's unusual drought resistance Is largely due to tne rapid development of a deep, sturdy root system soon after establishment. And while Spanish. Wise. A-48. and Evergreen varieties recorded the highest yields, it Is to be noted llml spring seeding of nil varieties resulted In satisfactory growth vith no appreciable reduction in SPRINKLING 1$ SOOD CROP INSURANCE btcauM H malei it pot- iiW« for you TO Irrigate when tnd when you ne«J to.
