Seasonal weath er records have been equaled or broken but, of course, we could hit some new lows as spring approaches. The unusual conditions have also brought extreme windy periods. The density of the dust laden atmosphere on numerous occasions serves a firm warning that wind erosion still remains a hazard in Montana. Whenever we relax our efforts to prevent it, nature has a peculiar habit of striking when our guard is down. Emergency Measures The soil blowing situation has been severe enough ih areas to necessi tate emergency preventative measures. Plowing or throwing up a furrow every 10 to 20 feet at right angles to the di rection of the prevailing wind is gen erally adequate. The type of soil or its susceptibility to wind movement will determine the closeness of the furrows. The easier the soil moves the closer the furrows need to be. The furrows tend to reduce the velocity at which the wind moves over the soil surface. The smoother the surface the greater the velocity. The loss of surface soil should not be measured ih terms of the amount of soil particles removed. It is to be re membered that, with the soil particles, plant nutrients are also being removed. The organic material and humus go with it Plant Food Lost Such material is also a source of readily available plant nutrients. The top few inches of soil contain the larg est amount of readily available plant food materials. Small grain crops are shallow rooted and consequently are dependent upon the surface soil zone for its major supply. No one practice alone assures ade quate protection in erosion control. Strip cropping is ineffective if strips are not at nearly right angles to the direction of the most serious prevailing wind. The width of strips is dependent somewhat upon soil type. Strips 20 rods in width may be adequate on medium type soils having a good struc ture. Most effective strips will range between 10 to 15 rods for maximum effectiveness. In the sandy areas strip widths as narrow as 3 rods have not given complete protection. Stubble mulch fallow alone will not do the job in many areas. This fits in well with a strip cropping program. Effect on Winter Wheat So far the wind and subsequent ero sion have not damaged winter wheat crops too severely on the surface. The degree does vary with areas, however. Perhaps more damage has resulted from the removal of moisture from the soil surface. Whether this drying out will have significance will naturally be depend ent on whether surface moisture is re ceived before active growth begins this spring. If adequate moisture is not re ceived we could well expect abandon ment of a sizable winter wheat acreage. There have been reports of yellowing of winter wheat fields. Up to now the situation seems to be that the tips of the leaves 'were frozen down. As the weather warmed up the moisture moved out causing the damaged portion of the leaf to dry out and die. One caution is to give the crop a fair chance to get off to a start this spring i m c. 'lâ vTVTi « A COMPLETE LINE OF TILLAGE TOOLS DESIGNED FOR MON.
