malities of Delta cotton, ad
vises George Mullendore, as
sistant agronomist of the Co
operative Extension Service.
This year’s crop should
have the good properties of
uniform lehgc.i, '-strength and
fineness, he said.
“Grouping of trailers at
gins could he the most impor

agronomist said. Cooperate
with the ginner in doing this.
Inform him if a cotton trailer
contains wet or mixed quali
ty cotton.
Do not pick wet cotton.
Know the moisture content
before picking.
Avoid starting pickers too
early in the morning or pick
ing too late in the evening.
Never dump wet cotton in
with dry cotton. Put cotton
of varying moisture content
in separate trailers.
Dry leaves and trash dump

more ginning and less quali
