E OUR SOIL * OUR STRENGTH 3
It has been five years since
three acres of Coastal Bermuda-
gra.^s was planted on the Clyde
Haggard farm northwest of Piano.
This planting was among the first
in Collin Soil Conservation Dis-
trict. Popularity of this grass has
increased each year among black-
land farmer^ with last year's
planting amounting to approxi-
mately four thousand acres. Ac-
cording to Ike McKinney tech-
nician, for the Soil Conservation
Se: vice in Piano, the 1961 plant-
ings will increase substantially
over this amount.
Coastal's ability to grow and
produce two to three times the
volume of growth as common on
Class III and IV land has caused
Dalton Morgan of Frisco to shift
operations from a row crop farm-
ing to grassland and small grain.
Only the twenty-five acre wheat
allotment will not be in grass on
his one hundred and thirty acre
Rovlett Creek farm four miles
east of ^risco adjacent to Farm
Ro^d 720. During February he
plans to sod forty-five acres of
Class III land to Coastal where
seedbed preparation was complet-
ed in the fall as crops were har-
vested. The remaining cropland
coi sistinrj of primarily Class IV
laiiJ will he sodded the Spring of
Palton's final decision to change
his farming operation came last
One year in Collin County $2.00
One year outside County $2.50
All Seasons Ended—
All major game hunting sea-
sons on wild game in Texas are
now closed, according to the Game
and Fish Commission. There can
be no more hunting on deer, tur-
key, dove, quail, ducks or geese
until new seasons are set. Squirrel
and javelina hunting is still legal
in a few counties, but you'd bet-
ter check with your game warden.

Lavon Elementary School students have won their third award
for outstanding service to the handicapped as a result of a drive
completed recently. They collected materials for use by Good-
will Industries in its training program for handicapped men and
summer when he was custom hay
bailing a nine-acre Coastal field
established in 1959 on soil similar
to his proposed planting. From
this field he averaged one hund-
red bales per acre on eacli of the
three cuttings. Morgan is quick
to give credit where it is due on
this field by recalling other fields
where grass production was not
this good, but it was not the fault
of the soil he said. On this par-
ticular field the farmer began
seedbed preparation in the fall by
intensely cultivating with a chisel
plow and applying an application
of two hundred pounds of 16-20-0
fertilizer per acre. In February he
sodded with a machine sprigger
that planted apprximately twenty-
five cubic feet of Coastal sprigs
per acre and top dressed it the
following spring with a minimum
of thirty pounds nitrogen per
Information as to source of
Coastal Bermuda grass is available
at the Soil Conservation offices in
Piano and McKinney. Agricultural
cost-sharing assistance for pasture
planting is available and can be
obtaining by applying at Room 210
