Cotton is and will continue to be
the most important crop grown in
South Carolina. It brings more
money into the State than all other
crops combined. While the Southern,
farmer has practically a monopoly
on this, the most important crop of
commerce on earth, the average far
mer is producing it, however, at
such a great cost his net profit is
The world's demand for cotton is
constantly increasing and to such an
extent it becomes necessary for the
Southern farmer to make improve
ments in his methods in order to
meet this increased demand without
increasing the area devoted to cot
ton. It should be the endeavor of
every intelligent farmer to encour
age farmers of every class to diver
sify their crops and raise more live
stock, thus curtailing the acreage
devoted to cotton. The increased de
mand for cotton should be met by
producing more pounas on a smal
ler area than is now devoted to that
crop, thus reducing the cost of pro
duction by intensive cultivatio.
Every acre of well drained land in
this State that is now planted in
cotton can be made to yield twice its
present average production. How to
do this is the object of this short
paper, which merely summarizes the
results .of experiments published in
Bulletins Nos. 145 and 148 of the S.
C. Experiment station. This increas
ed yield can be obtained as follows:
(1) By early and deep plowing.
(2) By conserving the soil mois
ture, by increasing the humus con
tent of the soil and by frequent and
(3) By turning under winter cov
er crops, such as bur clover, crim
son clover, vetch and rye which are
planted in the cotton field at the last
(4) By planting cotton only on
soils well drained and adapted to

the row and between the rows..
(6) By using the weeder frequent

7) By using large amounts of
