At the opening of the season the
conditions were very favorable for

much cotton was planted earlier than

plant all the acreage possible.
Weather conditions during August
and the first half of May have been
abnormal over the entire cotton belt.
Temperature have been unseasonably
low, and rains have been constant'and
excessive. The unfavorable weather:
conditions have generally eliminated
the early start.
