USE OF FORMALIN
TO PREVENT SMUl
Botanist of' Clemson Colleg4
Gives Simple Preventive
of Grain Disease.
FOROATSAND WHEAT SEH
Formalin Solution Applied to Sma;
Grain Before Planting Kills Sporel
. of Smut Without Injury to Germii
Smut -is the most widespread, and
destructive disease of small grain an
it occurs wherever oats and wheat are
grown. When proper control meth
ods are not practiced, it frequentli
causes serious loss. Fortunately, it ii
not hard to prevent this disease. It
formalin we have an easily obtainable
preparation that does the work effi
ciently. Before sowing oats or wheat,
- farmers should treat the seed with a
formalin solution to prevent smut.
Smut is caused by a parasitic
growth that lives in the tissues of the
plant. The disease spreads by sporee
(very small, seed ike bodies) which
cling to the hulls or lodge in the
creases of individual oat or wheal
grains and are thus carried into a
field with the seed. The spores germi
nate at about the same time that the
plants come up and the-disease growe
directly into the. tissue of the young
Smut lives in plants apparently
without doing serious damage until
the plants begin to head out. Then
the disease'concentrates its efforts in
the heads and black, sooty masses of
spores fill -the places where grain
should form. As these masses break
up, the spores are scattered over the
field by wind. Many lodge in grains
on healthy heads of oats .or wheat and
remain alive there until the seed ar
planted again. Some remain in the
diseased heads and are carried to the
thresher. In threshing, the smut
spores are scattered everywhere and
many' find resting places in healthy
Oat or wheat smut can be controlled
by soaki-ng the planting seed in a
ehemical sor'ution that will kill the
smut spores in the seed without injur
ing the germinating powers of the
seed. The best chemical to use for
this Is formalin, which is a 4e per cent
solution of. formaldehyde. It may be
proceded from any reliable druggist.
*Treatmnent with it is made as follows;
Make up the formalin solution by
mixing one pint formalin (40 percent
solution of formaldehyde) with 40 gal.
Ions water. Sack the grain to be
treated, about a bushel to a sack. Dip
each sack of grain into the barrel of
solution and let it remain there for
from five to ten minutes, moving the
sack up and down several times to
make sure that all the grains are thoa
oughly wet. Finally, lift the sack and
let the solution drain out, after which
either pile the bags of treated grain
together and cover with bagging or
canvas, or pour the treated grain inte
a pile on a clean floor and cover with
bagging or canvas. Leave the grain
covered thus for from 12 to 24 hours.
As a last step, spread the grain thinly
over a clean floor to dry.
The grain seed should be dried as
, rapidly as possible to prevent sprout
i ng. Nlaturally; grain p.hus tieated
should be put in clean bins or sacks
so as not to be again exposed to the
disease. Sacks a-nd bins that have
contained diseased grain may be dis
infected by washing with a formalin
solution made of one pint formalin to
10 gallons water.

ARE YOUR COWS EFFI
Putting th~e efficiency test to cows
with the milk scales and the Babcock
Itester is one of the essentials of con
ducting a successful dairy. .When feed
is high in price a farmer cannot af
ford to have boarders in his dairy
barn who eat up more in feed than
their milk yield is worth. The Bab
Icock test will show these delinquent
cows in their true light and the milk
scales will put the clincher on the
argument. Testing cows will give
eisome farmers a big surprise. Some

The cost of raising mule colts on the
farm to an age at which they can be
put to work Is about $90 each, when
even every item in the process is
charged against him. This amount
sounds large, but the fact is that most
of it Is charged against things that

this varies somewhat In both direc

The -pregnant mare's grain ration
~should be proportioned to the amount
of 1iork she does. About three weeks
before foaling, wheat bran should be
r added to her feed, the proportion ol
this being graiduaily Increased and
other grain proportions decreased as
