Estimate of Cotton Reduction.
That the most conservative
figures for 11 principal cotton
growing States show a total re
duction of 071,750 acres was
the statement contained in a re
port issued by E. J. Watson,
commissioner of agriculture of
South Carolina and president of
the Southern Cotton congress
on t)-e results obtained under
the "Rock Hill plan" for reduc
tion of cotton acreage. which
was inaugurated by John G.
Anderson of Rock Hill. The re
port which was addressed to the
members of the -otton congress,
places the acreage reduction at
about 16 per cent. According
to the report received Commis
sioner Watson estimated that
the crop this year will be about
2,500,000 bales less than 1911.
"If as much cotton per acre
is produced as was done in 1911.
a contingency that is not only
most unlikely but practically
an impossibility, then by the re
duction of the acreage alone
there will in 1912 be 2,522,225
less 500 lb. bales of cotton in the
1912 crop than in the 1911 crop.
There having been poor prepa
rations of seed beds in many of
the States and very late plant

a growing crop are yet to be en

1911 crop into the next season
at only 2,000,000 bales.
