FRIDAY, SEPT. 11, 1953 BLYTHEVn.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINB REVIEW- FORECAST On Missco Farms By H, H. CARTER, Assistant County Agent A few farmers in the county have planted or are considering Austrian | Winter Peas for a green manure crop. The reason for this is, In part that Austrian Winter Pea seed are cheaper than Hairy Vetch. Too there is a belief on the part oi some that the peas will grow of! faster than vetch in the spring and provide more organic matter. Peas are cheaper than vetch on a pound for pound basis, but the difference in cost per acre is sma Peas can be purchased lor $7.15 per c\vt., whereas Hairy Vetch is $16.00 to $16.50 per cwt. P. M. A. payment rate Is 12c per pound on Hairy Vetch and 4c on Austrian Winter Peas, up to the farm's amount of assistance. Minimum seeding rate on vetch is 20 pounds per acre and 35 pounds for peas. This results in a cost of approximately 63-25 per acre for vetch and about 02.50 for peas, without P. M. A. assistance. With P. M. A. payments, cost of Hairy etch seed would he a minimum of S5c per acre and for Austrian Winter Peas $1.10 per acre. As for the belief that Austrian Winter Peas will grow off faster in the spring in Mississippi County evidence indicates that they won't. Years of mild winters, yes; but on an average over a period of years. No. Austrian Winter Peas are not as winter hardy as Hairy vetch. Long time experiments on various green manure crops has been conducted at the Cotton Branch Experiment Station »t Marlanna. In six years out of the nine, Austrian Winter Peas produced less organic mutter (growth) by a given date prior to April 15, than did Hairy vetch. The nine year average was 2270 pounds of organic matter (air dry material) for Austrian winter Peas and 2,886 pounds for Hairy vetch—21 per cent less for peas Austrian Winter Peas would show up to a greater disadvantage I'.mv than at. Mariannna, as "-'"trr temperatures average s!ig--« 'owr for Mississippi County than .or Lee County (Marlanna). Try Some Doark Vetch I'd like to see several farmers try a small acreage of Doark vetch for a green manure crop and allow it to go to seed — just on a trial or demonstration basis. Doark does not have the winter hardiness of Hairy vetch but it is much higher and more reliable seed producer. Too, It fe resistant to weevil infestation. With cotton allotments likely there should be greater opportunity and desire to plant more winter green manure crops in the county, and to produce the needed seed for such on Mississippi County farms. If so, Doark vetch might have a place m .the soil building program on our Distributors of AERO CYANAMID Lee Wilson & Co. Phone 3411 Wilson, Ark. Wheat, Corn Estimates On Decline WASHINGTON W) — The Agrl. culture Department, In a near harvest time report, aetimated this year's corn crop at 3,216,007.000 bushels and the wheat crop at 1,169,307,000 bushels. The corn figure is 114.411,000 bushels less a than last month's forecast of 3.330.418.000 bushels.' The wheat estimate is 33,522.000 bushels less than last month's forecast oi 1,202.829,00 bushels. Officials have said that a corn crop in excess of 3,400,000 bushels would create a surplus supply probably requiring Secretary Benson to invoke rigid production and market- Ing controls on the 1954 crop to prevent excessive supplies. Benson has until mid-November to make a decision. Similar controls already have been invoked for next year's wheat crop. farms. The Farmers Soybean Corporation will get Doark seed for you, if you wish to try some.

Home, chief economist, Na- Uonal Cotton Council, tola! the Council's Board of Directors at Its all meeting in Memphis yesterday. Cotton's record 1 of 9.4 million bales consumed domestically the )ast year would have been "appreciably lower if we had not made some clear-cut competitive gains in apparel and household uses at the expense of rayon," he said. "For this reason primarily, among others, the rayon industry has been in a serious recession during a period of high activity for textiles as a whole.

Lizzie Henry, Ptf. vs. Zoe D. Stacy, Dft. "Down to now, the rayon industry's efforts to fight back have been largely concentrated in promotion and research," he said. Two large rayon producers which publish information have each increased their research appropriations by 41 per cent since 1950. Another has announced that it is spending 15 million dollars a year on textile fiber research and development. Dr. Home estimated that "the research program on the synthetic fibers in this country today must involve an annual expenditure of at least 50 million dollars — it may be much more. By comparison, the total amount being spent cotton research today by all agencies combined — is around U 12 millions.

Living For the next month or so the weather will be grand for outdoor living. This Is the season of the year when it's fun to eat out of doors. I want to remind you that food for picnics and outdoor eating needs to be hearty and satisfying. Presh air life really perks up the appetite. If you Just plan to eat, select foods that can be prepared in advance, and eliminate the last min- j ute fuss. Simple fare is best. Just be sure it packs and carries well. An electric roaster will keep food warm for several hours and it is fairly easy to carry. For dessert loaf cake that can be carried right in the pans. | When picnic plans include a fire, there's no end to foods you can prepare. There are the simple hot sandwiches or -wieners or barbecues. Everybody loves a barbecue — it's fun for all ages. Kabobs are fun to cook, too. It's a meal on a stick — roasted over a fire like wieners. Arrange on a stick pieces of luncheon meat, bacon, parboiled potatoes, tomatoes, and anything else that looks like it might taste good. Roast by slowly turning the stick over a low fire. It's Time To — 1. Check for root knot diseasi fall crops in sandy type soils. 2. Dust late beans to control bean leaf beetles. 3. Inspect buildings for termite damage. Exterior wood surfaces are in good condition to be painted following a long dry period. 4. Plant the late fall garden tit once. Plant the entire fall garden on the contour if possible or practicable. 5. Plant narrow-leaf evergreens. Always retain a ball of earth. They are nearly dormant at the end of summer, and with normal care and watering, growth will begin immediately. 6. Plant Bluegrass and other winter grasses for the lawn. 7. Transplant iris, peonies, poppies, bleeding heart,' violets, shas- ta, daisies, and other spring-blooming hardy perennials.
