Start dusting with cupper sulphur dust at the rate uf 15 puunds per acre. Be sure that you are doing a good job of covering both the top and bot tom side of the leaves in order to do a good job of controlling Itaf spot. For those of you who do not have dusting equipment and spraying equipment, you can use a spray containing Maneb »•nd du a good job. Hay from this treatment should not be ted to livestock. ' Poultrymen should keep one goal in mind—keeping their ι eggs clean and cool. To do this. I they should gather eggs four to six times a day and get eggs in the cooling room as soon as po&sible. Dirty eggs should be washed immediately and hung iti the cooling room to cool out. It is also a good idea to take a few minutes extra and clean up your egg room each day. This may include dusting and wiping off the equipment, cleaning up any broken eggs that may have gotten broken. A clean egg room not only re sults in better production, but results in a cleaner product. Last month, 5 poultrymen produced eggs that better than 90 per cent of their total sales graded Grade A eggs. With the recent rains, tobac co farmers are warned to watch that yellow tobacco for what may be water-ripe rather than lipening on the stalk. Before cropping, be sure that your tobacco is ripe anil not turned yellow because of excessive water. If it is yellow because of excessive water, normally it will remain on the stalk another week. You are also warned not to crowd the barns too tight. Hang the to bacco in the barns so that air can move through easily. With the excess moisture that we are having at the pres ent time, it is a good idea to open all ventilators so as much air as possible can move thro ugh during the yellowing and early heat stage. Some farmers are finding it advantageous to ust exhaust fans in the top of the barn to help move the air through, particularly during the early part of the curing tune. Cotton farmers should get ready to start treating their cotton for boll weevil on July 24 Normally that is the time that the second crop of boll weevils will hit your cotton, provided you did a good job when the bloom first showed up Prepare to treat your cot ton every five days for two to three weeks or until the last squares have formed. You can use Aldrin plus DDT, Dieldrin Plus DDT, Endrin. Guthion plus DDT, Hcptachlor plus DDT, Malathion plus DDT, Sevin, and Toxaphene plus DDT. Either of these materials will do a good job. Perhaps at this season, the most effective matt-rials that you can use on the migrating boll weevil are Guthion plus DDT. Sevin. or Toxaphene plus DDT. Watch for the spider and aphid in festation on your cotton. If found, use either Parathion or Dementon as needed for aphid control. During hot weather it is im portant that you keep your livestock cool and salted. Most livestock produce better in cool weather, and the more shade you can have for them, the better production you can ex pect from them, particularly during the hot days. Cattle on pasture could be kept in thv shade where there is free air movement during the day and allowed to graze at night. Be sure that there is plenty of salt available to your livestock at? ell times, and they will take care of their own nmls so fur as salt is concerned. Last year we found that 400 ' bushels of sweet potatoes j be made per acre. This year the sweet potato contest fur ι North Carolina has t>een step ped up from the 300 bushel club to the 400 Uushel Club. Several Columbus County farmers have reached beyond the 300 bushel mark. Any sweet potato producer who j leels that they have an acre j that will produce 400 or more bushels of No. l's at harvest ' time should contact the coun ty agent's office, because those who reach the official 400 bushel mark will be given a trip to Louisiana potato pro ducing area this winter. The trip is worthwhile. Art· you in the 200 bushel I Corn Club? Several Columbus County farmers are trying to reach the 175 to 200 bushel per acre goal this year. After look- ι ing at your corn fielt! if you ' think you have an acre that j will reach 175 bushels or more, I please notify the county agri- 1 cultural agent so that he can arrange for an official yield to be taken in your field. All of- ! ficial yields in the state are j mode by a state committee and they must be notified several days in advance. A new market is being set j up for stocker cattle. This ι should be welcome news to ; beef cattle producers since , most of the feeder calves are ■ sold in the fall leaving a num ' ber of smaller calves in the ! hands of growers. An area tccker cattle salt* is being svt jp ;it the Clinton Livestock Virrket ior Friday, April 12. Those «>f you who will nut at· able to get your feeder eal ces off to one of the iietlor i'iilf s;i It's this fall could look forward to tht· stocker cattle sale in the spring or yon may have some additional grazing und would want to buy some small feeder calves, graze them i.nd feed them a little this winter and put them back on th« stocket- cattle sale this spring. This, with many farm <is, shows a possibility. Crotulaiia is still a problem aiiti tint· tliat the farmers of North Carolina cannot afford to forget. win lis \V. E.
