Wetther conditions in most sections
of the state are favorable to weevil de

able to weevil control. Over practi

continuing to fruit. but in those sec

40 to 60 per cent, and with showerv
weather, fruiting may not be expected
Attention is particularly directed to
the fact that we have arrived at the
critical period in the production of
cotton in 1922 when the utmost at
tention is necessary to keep the plant
fruiting and to reduce the weevil In
festation as much as possible. Farm
ers who are poisoning are urged to
follow the directions laid down for
this work with great care, and to
make the different poison applications
at the intervals recommended just as
nearly as possible, weather permit
