j "Don't delay treating spring wheat
Heed for stinking smut!"
! TIiIh is the message of cereal spec
ialists In tho United States Depart
Intent of Agriculture to spring wheat
I growers In the Northwest, whom
slinking smut or bunt of wheat I
prevulent and annually causes great
Stinking smut of wheat may ba
prevented readily by treating tho
soed with formaldohydo or with blu-j-stono.
Formaldohydo is very gener
ally used in tho region cast of tho
Rouky Mountains. In tho Pacific
I Coast States bluostono Is moro com
j inonly employed,, because It usually
I gives very much better results; this
,ls doubtless because soil infestation
occurs in that region.
Tho hoHt method of applying tho
formaldohydo solution U by thu ho
called "dipping method," which Is na
follows;' Prepare a solution of for
umldohyde, using 1 pound to 40 gal
lons of water. Placo somo of tho
solution In n tub or barrel; pour tho
grain to be treated slowly into the
solution, stirring thoroughly, so that
tho smut bulls and trash may float M
the urfaco and be skim mod off.
Drain tho solution off from tho seed
and pour it out In a pllo nnd cover
with sacks or canvas for C to 13
hours. Do not allow tho seed to ro
main In the solution moro than 10
minutes. Forty gallons of the sol
ution' Is sufficient to treat 40 bushels
of grain, After removing tho coven
from the grain spread it out to dry.
It Is necessary to avoid contamin
ating tho seed nguin. It must hot
ho placed in smutty sacks, nor sown
with a smutty drill, Sacks, bins,
drill, etc., may bo disinfected by
washing thoroughly with a solution
of formaldohydo of 1 pound to 10
gallons of water,
