COTTON AND OKRA CLOSE SEASON.
Why is it necessary to have a Close
Season for Cotton and Okias ?
Every year our cotton is destroyed or
stained by attacks from Pink I1oll
Worm and Cotton Stainers. ''he.se
pests can only live a short time without
food. They require cotton leaves,
shoots and seeds to thrive on, but th y
can also live on okras and snme types ,of
trees which are closely related to the
cotton plant. Therefore, if we destroy
all the cotton and okra plants, and clean
up and destroy all seed cotton in our
fields, cotton houses, and our homes,
there is every chance that we will kill
off these pests and next year not suffer
serious losses.
These insects multiply very rapidly,
so that if only afew survive, along w\ith
the few plants you fail to destroy or dig
up thoroughly, orin the handful of seed
you leave lying about in or around y \our
house, this may be sufficient to cause
serious damage to your next crop.
Government has inspectors to assist
you in making certain that a thoroughly
clean up is effected, one or two who I;)
not comply will cause ruin to their own
and others cotton next year. Cleaning
up therefore is not a matter of the In-
spector wishing to prosecute, it is a
matter of helping yourselves to protect
this important crop,
If Cotton is chopped down, and not
dug out it will grow again, and provide
food for the pests. If you keel) a bam. of
unginned seed cotton in your house to
make a pillow, you are an enemy to all
your neighbours.
If you grow two or three okra plants
near your house, or far in the bush you
may cause thousands of dollars damage
to St. Vincent.
When you market okras in the Close
Season, you are opening yourself to
prosecution, as you are committing a
flagrant breach of the Close Season regu-
latios l Please, therefore, show that
you are a more intelligent and respon-
sible member of the community by not
doing so in future.
Please help yourselves, help your


nighii,ours, and help your Inspectors to
have a thorough clean up during the
Cotton Close Season for 1953.
