Abstract:

"Crop systems for Arkansas that make for increased food production and increased efficiency in man labor and horse labor are described in the following pages. By introduction of cowpeas, soy beans, and other legumes, and by second cropping, provision is made for a considerable increase in the number of crop acres that can be farmed by the average family. Thus, two men with a team, who under a cotton and corn system can farm but 33 acres of land, can handle 50 acres and raise 62 acres crops under a system providing for a 4-year rotation, including (10 cotton with a winter cover crop, (2) cowpeas, (30 oats or wheat followed by cowpeas, and (4) corn. In each of the copping systems suggested the crop acreages are calculated for tow men and a team, and for light medium and heavy soils. These systems in general apply to all of Arkansas except the northwestern part, and some of them may be used to advantage in northern Louisiana, northeastern Texas, southeastern Oklahoma, western Tennessee, and the northern half of Mississippi."--Page [2].
