    causilig ai1 estimated loss of from .-) to >. per cent of the total crop.
    It is probable that t]i yields also suffered froin the less favorable
    autuinili temliper'atires of '.i's. the month of ()ctober especially hay-
    iIgf been ilotablv ('cooler than in 1907. In 1908 the earliest kiiiiiLi
    frost occurred in the Yumia Valley Novenmber' 25, while in 1907 a
    killilig frost was iiot experienlced until )ecembiiier 19." Inalbility to
    obtaiii water for irrigation at critical periods ill the growth of the
    plant", likewise alfected the yields advers'el 'v.
    The total yield froit the 19I(' acres growit at Sacaton was 5,001)
    poliids, or 10 Americt'an bales; hlience. an average of slightly Illore
    tiha onlee-half bale per acre. This yield was unexpectedly low. but
    a variety of callses c niljined to produce tlie result. Thie chief of
    tlese, were: (1) A hIea 'vy raim just after onle of the fields was planted
    and tlie presence of tlie root-rot fuingus and of root lice, which in-
    jured the stand( to some extent. (2) Insufficieiit moisture in the soil.
    solle l)parts of the fields having been kept too dry throughout the
    summer. (3) A windl1 a(nd rail storm onl Selptemiiber 8, which caused
    i1much of tlie ri'pe (otton to be lost. (4) Anl unusuallvy early killing
    frost, imost of thle leaves on thle cotton plants having been killed on
    October 21. when tlie telmpileratllure fell to 28 F.'' At least one-half
    of the(' crop was lost as a result of these various circumstances.
    (Of lie total allmioulllt of filler produced at Sacaton, 45.6 per cent
    was obtained il lile tirst pikii 35.7 per cent in the second, and
    18.7 peor cent in tle third. Since nearly v half of the total crop was
    harvested at thle first picking, while onl the different plots at Yluma
    in 1907 only froni 17.5) to 32 per cenit of the total yield was obtained

    Experiments were made at Yuma to determinee thie effect upon the
    Xield ;li(1 qual(1 ity of thile fiber of different planting d(listances. The
    dlista!i.es tested were: (1) Ther usual Egyptian distance, 2', feet be-
    I\ween thlie 'rows alid(l 1( inches between the hills; (2) 4l feet between
    Ilie rows and 2 feet between the hills: (3:) 5 feet between thie rows
    aim 2, feet between tlie hill: (4) ; feet b)etweenli thle rows anid :
    ieet between the hils, (lithe last distancee being that followed in all the
    other p)lanit ings ait Yuma. ()wing to variation in thle soil moisture
    inl tlie different plots, Idue to imperfect leveling, differences of tex-
    Irec. anld tlie a('ccidelntal escape of irriigatingi wxaterl iln SOine cas-es, no
    satisfactory conc('hlusions could be drawn from these exp)eri'ielts.
    olme lplotis or portions of plots were too wet and others too dry
    d(urilng muc'h of tlie summer to permit of a fair comparison. Ap-
    parently tlie yields were as heavy where thlie wider plantini_ distances
    werV. '-C'I a: where tlie rows and hills were closest together.


    Frt thllr expl)erimentiieii isi necessary before any definite reconmien-
    da(11tion can lbe male as to how to manage thlie irrigation of Egyp-
    tian cotton o(in thlie different soils of the region. Experiments with
    flirrow irigiation were made at Sa'Icaton. and( Mr. E. W. Iiu((idson
    reports that the results were satisfactory. His method consisted of
    " lolwing a furriow onil each side of each row and allowing,. tile water
    to rInti through until tlie groinid between tlie f1'urrows Vwas -atrated(."
    Mr. uidson further states : This appears to 1e a n r.,t improvement
    over flooding, because the entire surface does not cemenilit t'iL',llli''."

    'Tih- way in which Egyptian cotton plants develop) is llar'ely infiu-
    eniced by the time of planting andi by tihe amount (of irrig'iat ion they
    receive. Mr. 0. F. Cook points out Ithat tli effect of exteriial condi-
    tions upon tlie yield is increased by tlie fact that thlie cotton l)lant has
    two distinct kinds of branches. Tile fertility of i(the plant depends
    ill great measilre ipol the early development of thle spel'ial fruiting
    Expleriiienits were l(iade at Yuinla to determine the eli.'t of plant-
    ilig at dift'ereint dates ( during the i spring. The result showed clearly
    that phlanlin ig as ealyV as lie weatheil permits gives thie hst results.

    too siiia ll to be of pract ical important Ice. It has been fould, however,
    that the conditions at YInmi are excei)tionially favorable to the carry-
    ing of pollen from onle plant to another, the cotton flowers beil,'Ir
    visited by several species of bumblebees and other IHymenop)tera in
    large numbers. As a result, in 1907 and again in l'o, i numerous
    lihvl)rids a;l))eared allilong the Egypvtian plants.
    TI ic elimination of this hybrid element from thle acclimatized
    Egyptlian stock is one of thle most serious problems in colilnnection
    with thie experimental work. Fortunately some of thlie best selectionslIS
    appear to have largely escaped contamination and are behaving in
    a very uniform manner. These will be relied upon as the basis of
    pure strains. Otherwise. acclimatization of freshly imported seed
    muiist be resorted to. and with this possible continienIcy in view car'e-
    fully isolated plant ings of new seed of the leading Egyptian varieties
    will b)e ma(le at Yunma this year.
    The practical lesson to be drawn from thle occurrence of these
    lhbrids is that growing any other type. and especially Upland. in
    the proximity of commercial cultures of Egylptian cotton is bound to
    result in disaster to tle latter. Thie presence of Upland varieties
    in thle neiIhlborloo(I will nauke it impossible to secure pure seed of
    Eyl ptian cotton. While tlie fiber of the first generation hybrids
    is often excellent, it differs from Egyptian cotton in length, color,
    and texture, and hence when mixed with the latter lowers the uni-
    formity of thie proiiuct. The commercial value of Egyptian cotton
    largely depends iupolln its uniform ity, aInd this is ,e of the chief
    reasons why it is so highly prized Iby spinners. Fulrtihermiore, thlie
    fiber of hYbi'ids of later generations is usually very inferior to that
    producel by first-generatioll plants.


    The only disease ias thappeared in tile Egypt ian cotton in 190S
    were a few small spots Iat Sacatol. d(ie to the root-rot fithingu (() o-
    ;.in uiu n 'u0,orl1) and a miild attack of damiinpig-oil. caused by fungi
    of tlie gienis Ihlizoctoll0iiim. which apl)lp 'ead early in April on thlie
    seedlings at Yiuma and Sacaton.
    loot-rot is well known in irrigated districts ill lie Southwest as
    the disease which causes bare spots in alfalfa fields. As it also
    attacks cotton,. badly infected alfalfa fields should not be planted to
    the latter crop. \lost of the plans in thle spots at Sacatol died late
    ill thlie l cr-ol. after they lad ivi: ad ire lealli their full grox'ilh aid( pro-
    (due(I 11,ian\v bolls. Mr. Ilitdson stIl-tat thal the spot' di(dl not appear
    to iicre'ase in size luring thlie pIeriod of growth of the cotton crop.
