Cotton Planting Under
Boll Weevil Conditions
Time and Methods of Planting
and Oulitvation To Beat
The Boll Weevil.
Clemson College, April 12.-A great
many farmers are asking about the
time of planting cotton under boll
weevil conditions. The answer to
this quastion, says Prof., C. P. Black.
well of the agronomy division, is that
the time of planting which gave best
results In the previous years will
give best results under boll weevil
conditions. The best time for plant.
ing varies according to the season.
Cotton Is a warm weather plant. It
will not make a healthy growth until
the soil is reasonably warm and dan.
ger of frost is past. So It is general.
ly best not to plant until the soil is
warm. Then it is well to plant in a
well propared seed bed seed which
has been delinted with sulphuric
neid. This should give prompt and
uniform germination and should al
low the cotton to get started before
the weeds come. Cotton which is
planted too early while the soil is yet
cold will not make a quick growth,
and the weeds will have an opportun
ity to begin growth at the same time
the cotton does, thus making the
crop more difficult to cultivato and
frequently resulting in a poorer
Methods of Planting
In order for cotton to make a good
start the seed should not be planted
in direct contact with heavy applica
tions of commercial fertilizer. Where
heavy applications of commercial fer
tilizer are made. soeni kind of shovel
plow should he run through the fur
row ahead of the cotton planter to
mix the fertilizor thoroughly with the
soil before planting. If the cotton IF
planted in. (irect contact with the
fertilizer, there may be no injury if
heavy rains follow the planting and
prevent the concentration of the soil
solition. But if dry weather follows
the planting, the soil solution he
comes very concentratedi and the
young roots of the plant are killed.
This may result in a poor sta nd of
cotton hy killing off many of the
young plants, or it may result in a
stunted crop by delaying the early
growth of the plants. This has not
been such an important matter in the
past, a! there has usually been a
long growing season and the cotton
has had plenty of time to mature.
Undor holl woevil conditions,. how
ever, it is a matter of priie import
ance, as earliness is very essential
to success in heating the holl woovil.
Cafeful atention to this point may
prevent serious loss.
Another factor in planting under
holl weevil conditions which de
serves careful consideration at thIs
tinie is the spacing of plants at time
of planting. By planting delinted
seed It is possible to drop the seed at
almost any interval desired, and by
planting several seed in each hill a
good stand may be secured.
This makes it profitable to culti
vate cotton with a spike-tooth har
row or a row harrow at an early
(late and to keep the weedls downW and

there are no long periods of dry hot
weather. There have beon many ex
perimnents to dletermnino the best spac
tng of ccotton plants. but there are so
many factorq entering Into the con
siderat ion that it is impossible to
set a dlefinite spacing whichI would
be bent for all farnia.
Each farmer needs to study his
own condit ions and use the spacing
which gives best results on his land.
The fer't ility' of the soil. the amount
of rain Call the kind of cotton phi nted,
and the amount of fertilizer usend are
all factors which should 'he consider
e! in spacing cotton. As a general
rule, experiments have shown larger
yields from the relntively close spac
ing. At the Pee Dcc Experlmant
Station best results have been gotten
by planting in 4-foot rows with plants
not more than ten to twelve inehes
apart in the row. This on a comtera
tively fertile soil, yielding about one
and one-half bales per acre as an
The primary objenct of cultivation
is to destroy woods and grass. The
cultivation of cotton under boll-we
evil conditions should begin early
and should be thorough. Weeds
and grass should never lhe allowed to
get a start in the crop, since byr so
doing they stunt the crop, and delay
its maturity. The delav may be fa
tal. The best implenment to use in
the cult ivuation of cotton is the one
which will diestroy weeds and graso
me-st effectively without iniuring the
roots of the cotton pleants. Juot
