COTTON PRODUCTION SIIIFTING
TO CENTER OF THE BELT
How Alabaima Planters .Have .Over.
come Weevil Conditlonis by Intensive
Cultivation and the liaisingr of .Plen.
tiful Food and Feed Crops.
By W. V. McClure, Dempolis, Ala.
Texas excgluded from the argument,
the production of cotton is shifting
back to the center of the belt, where
the damage from -boll weevil has been
most severe and where abandonment
has been greatest. Due to the labor
situation, the labor being mostly nc
gro tenants, the storm 'was not weath
cred as well as in communities of
small, industrious white farmers. In
deed .the extensive negro tenantry sys
tem of Arkansas, 'Louisiana, Missis
sippi and West Al-abama, was, in many
localities, all but completely disor
ganized when the weevil came and got
going good in his work of destruction.
'But conditions have changed in this
central territory outlined. That por
tion of the cotton growing area east
of a line running north and south
through Little Rock and west of Mont
gomery and 'Birmingham will 'be seen
'within approaching years to be gaining
in cotton production, and Georgia and
the Carolinas will fall off while the
people are becoming adjusted to the
new order of things, Increasing pro
duction of cotton is .traveling back
west while the weevil continues his
journey east and northeast.
Moreover, it is a question as to
whether Georgia and the Carolinas
can roduce cotton as cheaply as in
the central territory. Lands are high
er in price and taxation heavier, la
bor is higher and the necessity for
commercial fertilizer much greater.
In this central region the use of fer
tilizers was 'meagre before. the weevil
came and its consumption decreased
under 'weevil infestat.lon.
Due to disorganized labor condi
tions and abandonment more cotton
land has been lying fallow for several
years than in any other portion of
the cotton belt of the South. In the
meanwhile nature has restored to the
soil, in the natural process of rest td
the land, much of the valuable ele
ments of humus and organic matter.
The agriculturists of authority tell us
that where humus and organic matter
is contained in the soil the -better re
suits may be obtained by a judicious
use of artificial plant food and stimu
lants. The analogy may be mentioned
of a strong healthy man being able
to digest more food than a weak, fee
ble man can -assimilate.
But regardless of theory or science
we have many facts developing to sus
tain the view that the increase in cot
ton production will henceforth be
greater in those sections of the belt
where the weevil owrought .the greater
decrease in yields per acre or per mail.
P. F. Bell, of Boligee, Greene coun
ty, Ala., 'has Jhis year, proved what,
can be and is being done when Geor
gia and Carolina methods of ferti
lizing and cultivation are applied in
mak-ing cotton in localities w'here the
extensive large -plantation system has
been all the go for' the most part. On
a lit-tle less than 400 neres he has
made this year 226 bales of cotton.
His average amount of fertilizer used
l)er acre was 250 pounds of the 10-2-2
grade, supplemented with an average
or 75 pounds of nitrate of soda p'er
acre. On his path patch of '2 1-2 acres
lie enade 4 bales with 600 pounds of
fertilizer and 100 -pounds of nitrate
per acre. He plan tu the Wannamaker
Cleveland variety of cotton. 'Ils land
is of a sandy nature, with clap subsoil
under most of .it. (His method of culi
ture is fast and intensive 'with an in
telligent limit to the acreage per -plow.
.He is successful as evidenced by hav
ing bought a plantation and paid for
it growing cotton under 'boll weevil
conditions. He is a native of Tusca
'loosa county, where conditions are
somewhat similar to Gleorgia and
Carolina in 'hilly lands and Where
there are industrious white farmers
on small farms. lHe is the only white
man on 'his plantation, 'He uses no
'boll weevil poison, but a visit to 'his
place 'would convince one that he has
"poisoned" his negro renters and share
croppers with a knowledge of how .to
grow cotton and make money unma

He stood by 'his people and kept them
