Survey Shows South Changing
Cotton Production Practices
i If present trends continue,
; one-half the cotton acreage in
I the Southeastern United States
i will be mechanically harvested
within the next few years.
This prediction comes from R.
'P. Upchurch, an associate pro-,
i lessor of field crops at North
j Carolina State College.
Upchurch bases his prediction
on a recent survey made of
chemical weed control and me-'
j chanical harvesting trends in
some of the important cotton
i producing states. It is the first
attempt to show belt-wide
j trends on these practices. Re
| suits of his survey were rc-
I ported to the recent Cotton Pro
eduction and Mechanization Con
ference at Greenville, S. C.
Upchurch found that the
Southeastern cotton states of
! North Carolina, South Carolina,
Georgia and Alabama are fol
lowing a trend set earlier by the
Delta states. (
In 11)56, less than 10 per cent
of the cotlon acreage in the
! Delta states of Louisiana, Missis
i sippi. Arkansas and Tennessee
was treated with pre-emergence
herbicides. By 1960, however,
65 per cent of the acreage in
Louisiana was treated. And by
1963 or 1964, Upchurch predicts
that 75 per cent of the acreage!
in the entire area will be treat
"The full benefit of using
labor-saving pre-emergence treat-;
ments cannot be realized unless]
mechanical harvesting is also
adopted,” Upchurch pointed out.
“ ... It seems reasonable to
predict that by 1963 or 1964 thej
Delta states . . . will also be'

age,” he added.
Upchurch believes the south
eastern states are running about
four years behind the basic
trend being set by the Delta'
In 1958, for example, an es
timated s,urn) acres of cotton
were treated witi pre-emergence
herbicides in North Carolina.
This figure increased to 10.000
acres in 1959 and 35,000 in 1960.
Upchurch predicts that 52,000
acres will be treated in 1961.
Mechanical harvesting is fol
lowing closely the pattern set
by pre-emergence weed control.
In 1959, the first year that es
timates are available, 4 per cent
of North Carolina’s cotton acre
age was mechanically harvested.
In 1960, the figure jumped to
12 per cent. Upchurch expects
16 per cent of North Carolina’s
cotton acreage to be mechani
cally harvested in 1961.
About 20 pir cent of the Ala
bama and South Carolina cotton
crops were mechanically har
vested in 1960. Georgia led the
region, however, v. ith 30 per
cent mechanically harvested.
Georgia is expected to stay
ahead of her neighbors by
reaching the 10 per cent mark
In reporting his study, Up
church explained that his fig
ures "are no more than the ed

in states covered. But he ex
pressed confidence that the
"guesses’ ’are reliable enough to
