As the time is growing near when
the farmers are thinking seriously or |
preparing their seed for planting, R
might be well at this time to call at-;
tention to the different methods of •
treating grain for smut. . {
As ** me goes on and scientific
studies of agricultural problems are
being made, we find that newer and j
more successful methods are gradu -1
ally taking the place of practices loi - 1
lowed in the past. I
The old method of treating wheat |
with the formaldehyde solution to pre-|
vent Bunt Smut saved the farmers
a great many dollars, but as science
has revealed a more successful meth
Jod of treatment, the Copper Carbon
ate Dust method has replaced the for-1
maldehyde method in many instances.,
Recently there has appeared on the
market a new type of smut treating
machine that operates on the formal
dehyde gas principle. It was thought
j by the inventor that by treating seed
wheat with formaldehyde gas, it world

The principle by which the for ™ al
dehyde gas treating machine operates
is the placing of long P er * * .
tubes in the bin or wagon box full ot
wheat. Attached to these tubes is a
retort containing a powder wlucn,
w R en heated, generates formaldeh> -
gas As this gas escaped from tne
perforated tubes and passed througn
the gra i n> it was thought the smut
spores would be killed.
This method of treatment involves j
ver y little work, which would be an
i mpor t a nt factor in treating seed
grain, but after tests were made, it
was f ound that the germination of
t h e grain was considerably injured oy
the gas. The grain that surrounded
t h e tubes germinated less than l c /o,ig=J
grain s i v i nc hes from the tubes show
ed a 40 % germination, grain eight
inches away i ncrea sed the germina-1
tion to C5%, and so on up. ,
A number of experiment have been j
conducted i n the last two years which i
h ave proV en Conclusively that treat-;
ing w heat by the formaldehyde gas
method has not been successful from j
t R e standpoint of germination. |

people in the county may be protected
we do not recommend the use of the
formaldehyde gas treatment of wheat
to preveP t cmut The method of
1 treatment that has proven to be the

j time is 50 % Copper Carbonate
Dust Treatment. Figures show that
