The coi-nty agent o; Franklin
co-jnt- states that he got .5 of one
per cent smut where they used cop-p?r-carbonale
on Early Bart as
against 12 per cent where it was dip
ped. In every case they had from 20
to 100 per eent better stand. The
sprouting occured about four days in
advance of the dipped seed and they
used 60 pounds where it is treated
.drvas against 75 pounds where
treated with the copper-carbonate 1
and yet they had a hundred per cent
better stand. Tne dry treated grain
yielded 16 bushels while the formal-
dahyde treated wheat yielded 11
bushels. There was' a gain cf 3000
bushels in yield on this one 600 acre
field. Note that 15 pounds less were j
seeded per acre too.
We have promised a summary of j
these results over the Northwest to
Morrow county farmers and they are
free to draw their own .conclusions.
The copper-carbonate tests have
ahowin up much better than anticipa
ted. There are several decided advan
tages in favor of the dry treatment a
lew of which might be mentioned:
1. No seed is killed in treating,
therefore, , - -
2. You not. only get a better stand
which is mighty important, but
3. You know what to depend on
from your seed when you plant, it.
With the old method- it is always a
question as to wli'at per cent has
been killed or injured.
4. Dry treated seed is better when
seeding in dry ground.
5 It therefore works in well with
early seeding which is mighty im
portant in obtaining good yields.
6. It is easier to treat with the
powder, a machine being mr.de,
which will make it possible to fam
and treat in one operation.
. Wheat can be treated ahead of
8. It has proven to be fairly effec
tive for smut control and when the
wheat, is machine treated no douht it
will give much better results .
The old methods of treatment are
too familiar to all to need any com
Several farmers have indicated they
wanted to treat their wheat with the
rowdcr this- fall and indications are
that the acreage so seeded will be
viiher lnrrp.Wp would suggest that
extreme Pare be takwi to see that the
wheat is well treated. According to
recommendations from the Pal hoi
ogy department from Corvallis it i
necessary to so treat the wheat that
it will get into the crease and brush
end of the wheat thoroughly. This,
he states, ean bept be accomplished by
the use o." & machine. In order to
make the treating with the dry pow
der possible and practical the County-
Agent has been working on a machine
which will receive the wheat from the
fanning mill, treat and deliver Into
raeker rendv for seeding. This
machine is being tested and when per
fected will be made locally in sufS
cient numbers to accomodate those
needing them this fall.
