FARMERS Al>VlSfl)
NOT TO INCREASE
COTTON ACREAGE
j
By Clarence Ousley
 Former Assistant Secretary of Agri- j
culture •
I The mo t important statement yet'
: lade concerning cotton production |
j for 1924 come* from the Department
jof Agriculture. The Department ha«-
. made a comprehensive surrey of world
j condition-- and aJvise* American farm- j
jcrs not to increase their output thi*
l year except as increases may result
{from favorabV weather and improved '
! farming methods which decrease the
ctoots of production. Concerning cotton '
the Department says:
"In the lirht of general busines"
conditions, the cotton market give* a
comparatively good price. It must be j
f remembered that a large crop if se-'
I cured by increased acreage and ex-J
pensive pr>»taction methods, would
' j tend to lesult in a decline in prkv.,
II which mirht more than offset aay re-.
sultiag reductions in cost due to hirh-.
er yields "
As to acreage, that is already de- '
■ | f-rmincl in the preparation* the
' farmer has made His intentions arvl i
•' n*ar rannot weU be rhaaeed except
. siiehtly by unforeseen conditions of
I weather, for he has planted in part.
I he has secured seed and he has male
provisions fur his entire farminr pro
• • gram Hence the acreage is already
r practically fixed, though there will be
- no'sto*istirul calculation af it for some
r weeks.
• ' In the common jmlgmi lit of the
' | trade, of agnraltursl observers and of
• three of the professional forecasting |
r ( bureaus of the l aited States there,
■ will be an increase of acreage this I
f ■ year of from 3 to C per cent- Quota- !
tions of prires aad actaal «o»itract - j
made for future delivery reflect the j
expectation of a larger acreage and a
larrer crop
If price.- are to be lower it be
( hooves the fanner to reduce his costs i
of production The only way he can 1
do that in any considerable degrve is j
by reducing the acre yield. Assum-.
ing that the farmer follows good farm 1
I, ing methods, there are but two ele-1
II ments affecting acre yield, vis, the!
11 weather and the boll weevil
,| With an indicated increase of acr
-11 eage and aa indicated decrease in
r '■ price, therefore, the cotton farmer's
. best hope of profit lies in preparation
. for weevil control Every state agri
f cultural college, every county arrent
i and the National 801 l Weevil Control
Association have the information by
i which every farmer who will to do so
. I may escape weevil loss and make a
. | profit aopn cotton under average
g j weather cwaditions. .
