S. C., WEDNESDAY, JULY 9, 1930 -y- 'j CALCn POISONING CONTOIS WEEVIL WHEN PROPERLY APPLIED "wa* «* $2.00 t Year-* $c a Copy I ■if State Councilor Present and Official ly Welcomed, Inf'-stat ion Only Thraa Par Cant. Odtsnriw Will Ararat* Twanty- Stttn Par Cast. A inmy of cotton field* throughout A ikon County the past wack in-' die ates that calcium poisoning la controlling the boll weevil when properly applied. On fields where three applications of sweetened poison has been applied, from five to seven days apart, the average infestation was 3 per cent. On fields where three applications of dust has been applied, from five to seven days apart, the average infestation was 2.7 per cent. On fields where no poison has been applied the average infestation was 27 per cent However, the time has arrived now when the cotton is putting on fruit and blooming and the boll weevils are doing most of their damage within the forms where they cannot be reached with sweetened poison and dust is the only method that has proven efficient fcr controlling the boll weevil after the cotton begins fruiting heavily and blooming. The survey shows that approximately 65 per cent, of the farmers in Aiken County have already used poison this spring and the other 36 per cent, is urged to get busy and start dusting in order that they may protect their own cotton crops and their neighbors. This survey was made by J. H. Dean, who was loaned to the County by The Planters Produce & Storage Company of Florence, S. C. Mr. Dealt was especially trained for this work at f’lemson College and made the survey in Aiken County in cooperation with C. Lee Cowan, County Farm Agent, and The Aiken Fertilizer Works. However, it was interesting to note that there were four fields visited which had not had any poison this spring, yet had very low infestations, though these fields were large open fields with no close point* for hibernating quarters. Also one field that had had three aplieations of sweetened poison and had an infestation of 17 per cent. However, this field wa* practically surrounded by river swamps, giving abundant hibernating quarters arjacent to the field. Any one who ii versed in the study of boll weevil habits would not have been disappointed with the findings ^on either of these fields after having observed the surroundings of the fields. However,, conditions of this kind have tended in the past to mislead farmers who were not sufficiently familiar with boll weevil habits to understand the reason for a lack of infestation on some fields, while others might be heavily infested, as the infestation on some of the (.elds where no poison had been used ran aa higt as 57 p^.cepHntestation. There can be no set program in bo|l weevil control. It requires careful study, close watching during the growing period, and quick notion when infestation 'tarts increasing in a field. We have seep a number of farmers who watched their fields so carefully that they would observe an infestation on one side of a large field, poisoning probably only a portion of the field regularly, thereby preventing an infestation of the entire field; but the majority wait until it is too late to control the situation before they start fighting. It is how time for Aiken County farmers to maintain a vigilant lookout and get busy on all fields now infested with weevils, for they must either make or lose a cotton crop within the next four to &i.x weeks. in tie comm SAYS HEALTH OFFICER Leroy Jack™ CONG.
