How A Cotton Farmer May Live
We are continuously advising
cotton producers to keep a close
check on insect infestations in
each cotton field during this final
stretch. But. now, I want to list
some cotton mistakes that some
cotton farmers make that lead to
a crop failure.
First, never check your cotton
field, depending completely upon
nature to provide and if you deci-
de to apply insecticide, it is be-
cause your neighbor poisons.
Secondly, don't follow the 1961
Texas Cotton Guide, for insecti-
cide recommendations and amount
of insecticide to be applied per
acre and the suggested interval
Thirdly, if you do poison, dis-
regard the proper methods of
Fourth, if you are fighting boll
weevils and bollworms, apply one
application of insecticide and then
trust that all is well.
We have some cotton farmers
that make the above listed mis-
takes and then criticize late sea-
son insect control. Late sermn
THE WYLIE NEWS
insect control should only be ap-
plied when insect infestations war-
rant. We have an excellent pros-
pect for a cotton crop, but we also
have good conditions for the boll
weevil and bollworm build up.
Pull at random 100 one-third
grown squares weekly for weevil
infestation counts. When 15 to
25 squares are punctures it is time
for control measures to be taken
against snipe nose, the weevil.
Check for boollworms two times
a week. Wheji bollworm eggs and
4 or 5 small worms are found af-
ter checking 100 stalks of cotton,
it is time for bollworm control
to be taken. To do a good job of
bollworm control, we have to
apply insecticide on the young,
small worm. C'atch them within
the four day old stage.
Remember, that land fertility
and moisture makes cotton. In-
secticide protects the cotton plant
and allows the land to produce
its maximum amount of cotton.
Late season insect control is not
recommended where land fertility
is so low that 1/3 bale per acre
would be a bumper crop.
Nothing is more sickening and
wasteful than to let cotton grown
on fertile land with abundant
moisture be destroyed by boll
weevils or bollworms with the
excelled insecticides that scicnce
and research has provided for
the control of these insects.

been a bit let down by the difference bet-
