MAKE 1921 A HAY YEAR The freight on hay from the West is double the cost of the hay at shipping points. With these conditions- the Arkansas cotton growers can not afford to buy hay ne t year and take the money to pay for it out of the probable low price they will get for their coton. A sufficient acre age should be put in hay crops this month to insure a full sup ply should the season be such that there will be only half a yield. Most cotton growers plan to get their hay from cow peas. In many seasons, half to three-fourths of the feed val ue of the cowpea is lost be cause there is rainy weather at curing time. It is never safe to depend on cowpeas for the hay supply unless two or three times the acreage is planted that under fair con ditions will produce all the hay needed on the farm or plantation. une-naii biisnel ot cow peas and three-fourths bushel early sorghum an acre make a good combination for a good yield of hay. Sudan grass is becoming more popular every year in Arkansas as a hay crop. Sow 20 pounds an acre broadcast. The seed is unusually cheap this year. Sow cream col ored seed. The dark seed in dicates a cross with sorghum and gives a much coarser hay with much waste in feeding. Many farmers like sorghum hay and others will not have it on the farm. The best hay that can be produced in Arkansas is that made from Spanish peanuts, the tops and nuts cured to gether. Plant in rows 30 to 36 inches apart, drop ping whole, unshelled nuts, one nut every six inches in the row. It requires two bushels seed an acre. Dampen the nuts thoroughly before plant ing, putting just enough kero sene in the water to give the nots a strong odor of coal oil. This will prevent pests from eating the seed. H, M.
