In the main.
In 1931 tooacco acreage in the

clude all farms in the county. \
On these 600 farms it was planned
to decrease acreage by 42 1 percent,
under the 1931 total, but the actual de
crease amounted to 78 percent. Far
mers planned 24.4 percent reduction
in cotton on those 600 farms, but the

from 1931 is given as 74.8 percent,
leaving the 1932 prospective yield at
23.2 percent of last year's.
• Actual plantings in cotton showed a
decrease of 1971 percent under the

weevil infestation, the decline is fore
cast at 20 4 percent from 1931. Cotfon
