i Farming: Under Boll Weevil
Tito .Mexican ?oil Weevil lins
j invaded out* County and lins estab
lished a home for himself on nearly
every farm,where, if not destroyed,
bo ?Ul poss tho whiter safely, and
will ho ready early next spring to
multiply and destroy all the young
cotton squares as fast os they aro
I grown. If we maintain our credit
and present prosperity, conditions
! demand that wo chango our present
farming methods at once.
A careful study of tho habits of
the Holl Weevil will show that ho
moves once a year, and that ls in
August. Now, if we will clean up
our Heids carly this fall by ?'bop
ping nnd turning under all cotton
stalks and burning off all terraces,
ditch banks and other places where
tho Weevil has hibernntel for tho
winter, wo can kill tho Weevils out
and leave our Melds free from tho
pest, ami then, by tho uso of pro
per farming methods, a good crop
of grown bolls can bo produced
before tho Weevil commences his
annual movement in August.
As a safe program for farming
next year to combat tho Weevil we
would suggest 20 acres to tho
plow, planted as follows:
Six acres to cotton, folio trod by
small grain in tho fall.
Six acres to corn, with velvet
heans and peas planted in corn.
Six acres to small grain-two
acres each to wheat, oats and ryo.
Two acres to (ruck crops, con
sisting of Irish potatoes, syrup
cane, sweet potatoes, melons and
Proparo tho ground well, plant
early, using an early-maturing var
rloty of cotton; fertilize liberally
and cultivate intensively.
