VOLUME X. DANCER OF WEEVIL IS STILL WITH US A Wat Yaar Would Result In Diaoppobsomtnt For Tha Cara lass Farmar Raleigh, Dec. 26.—"There is mi doubt but that our cotton grower? are optimistic and moat of them ate t.ot yet much dismayed by the boll weevil." say* Prof. Franklin Slier man, Entomologist for the State Col lege and Department of Agriculture, 'who ie now assembling opinions of I county agents on this subject for the close of the year 1928. Prof. Sherman says, “Hero ia the county agent of one of our southern re unties who says he fears the ma jority of hi* farmers now believe the weevil's bark is worse than hia bite, but that a wet year Wouhl ronect that impression That agent ha* had em parlance in a state farther mouth and ’ knows bow variable the weevil-dam age la from year to year and how -bitter the disappointment of thosr wh* become unduly caret cue about ’the weevil. “Here is another agent in one of the upper counties who knows some thing of tha duet-poison method who ear* that durng the 1028 season hr did not see occasion to urge the ot* of this method. Hit opinion ia in line with our usual experiences and ob aerrations In his eeetiot., but title same agent goes on to aoy that their lint bail weevil yc»r ever the whole county le atilt to be looked forward to. He hate* to lev it coma bot hr knows that it will come eventually "Another county agent of *xperi once in a section which was due for only light injury in 1923 wirtes tit commend the advocacy of the cultu ral methods of using good seed of good varieties, and proper fsrtiliaa ton and tillage. This has been stress , ed at all our boil weevil meetings in the past and will be stressed at out meetings through the northeastern _ counties in January and February. . j!"JN llUgl the Bloat completely '■T'tuk&Ktefy <Mtteeoy that I have yet well te the eastward where many ; fields were quite severely hurt by weevil in 1929. This agent reported V that some fields where no efforts • ware made to control the wevvil made -fair yields, but that other similar fields tears badly damaged by weevil, the infestation being spotted and ir regular. AU careful observers know bow true this is. an how easily on* may be misled by it. This same agent went an to say that in fields where well-eeUcted seed of chosen varieties arms used side by did* in the seme field with ordinary seed, and approv ed cultured methods followed that the , yield was so much greater as to be very convincing—and that when In addition te. this, ample proper dust poisoning was done the yield was still | farther increased |o a highly profit able degree. “One agent ri marks that a con ' slderefclc number nf farmers ure Io dised to the idea that a little pois oning la aH they naad to do to con tro( waerH-dajoage,—-and their Ideal as ta how and wban to poison may be haxy and incomplete at that. “All of tWe testimony from coun ty agents of tha Agricultural Exten sion Service la in line with our own experiences of 1028 and It should surely be sufTicieirt to convince farm ers that we mast yet expect years iff which weevil injury wll be much wo me than it was in nut localities during the part season Tha ads and reasonable thing to do therefore is to give etaxtioos Attention to the whale subject of crop improvement, tha culture, and protection of the cotton coop. We ehoulil not allow ounehree to be c raided away by an exaggerated idea that one little thing alone wlU solve the weevil problem. The boll-weevil meetings wheh we held each winter are designed to pre aeut Just such a balanced and com plete program far farmers to follow.
