REQUIRES LARGE INVESTMENT Plant Is Biennial and Roots Do Not, Under Normal Conditions, Send Up Seed Stalks and Develop Seed Until Second Year. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) • • One of the first requisites of a per manent and satisfactory beet-sugar in dustry is an adequate supply of seed of good quality. It has been scarce and as a result the production of sugar-beet seed in the United States has made rapid progress during the past few years. The present annual requirement in this country is approxi mately 10,000.000 pounds, of which about 50 per cent is now produced within the nation's borders. With the continued development of the sugar beet industry more and more seed is required eacli year, but it is confident ly expected by specialists of the United States Department of Agricul ture that eventually the total Ameri can requirement will be grown in this country. In order to encourage the growing of sugar-beet seed and assist in its development along proper lines, the department recently published Farmers' Bulletin 115-, "Growing Sugar-Beet Seed in the Kocky Moun tain States." Investment Required Large. The development of Li.'is industry has been greatest in the irrigated sec tions of Colorado, Montana, Utah and Idaho, and special reference is given in the bulletin to the growing of sugar beet seed In this region. The Industry is best adapted to large operators, the Investment required for special ma chinery being so great that tbe busi ness is not really profitable on less than 100 acres. It is to the growing of sugar beets on a large scale that the instructions in the bulletin refer. The sugar-beet plant is- a biennial and the roots do not, under normal conditions, send up seed stalks and develop seed until tbe second year. Beets of small size are grown the first season, are stored In pits known as silos during the winter, transplanted In the spring, and the seed is har vested at the end of the second sea son. Only small-sized roots not over 1(5 ounces In weight are used for com mercial seed production. The eight ounce beets are usually considered One of the Many Widely Varying Types of Sugar Beet Found in Com mercial Fields. the most profitable. These are known among seed producers as Stecklings. Roots for commercial seed produc tion are usually started about the same time as beets intended for fac tory purposes, though some growers have had better success by startiifg their strecklings a little later, us in June. July sowings may be satisfac tory if conditions happen to be just right, but usually contain a large per centage of roots loo small for profit able handling. To keep the roots from growing too large, seed is gen erally sown at the rate of 10 to 16 pounds per acre and the plants are left unthlnned. It Is important that the seed be of highest quality and, be cause an even stand is highly desir able. the bulletin* recommends that germination tests be made. Harvest of Steckling. The Steckling harvest should he started before freezing weather. In northern Colorado It generally begins by September 20 and is usually com pleted with all the beets in the slips liy October 10. Harvesting begins by mowing tbe tops of the Stecklings- as «•lose to the ground as practicable. If tbe mowers are run first one way and I hen hack again on the same row. many leaves will be cut off which would not be removed If tbe machines were rnn in one direction only. The beets are then plowed out. and in or der to do this work so that they may be gathered more readily, it is fre quently desirable to irrigate before harvesting, especially if the soli Is dry. If the foliage of the Stecklings is thick anil heavy. If pays to gather the leaves and silo them for feed, but usually they are left on the ground to dry. In order to prevent drying out, Stecklings must be hauled immediately after being pulled. THEY'RE OFF The Race Has Started! T HE race for Fall busi ness has started and we're in it to win.

WHITEWASHING WILL KILL MANY INSECTS Spraying Is Effective in Destroy ing Vermin. Cleanliness Is of Utmost Importancs in Keeping Many Pests Under Con trol—Provide Abundance of Light and Fresh Air. (Prepared by the United Slates Depart ment of Agriculture.) Whitewash is effective in killing mites and oilier sorts of vermin aud may be used freely in spraying ihe poultry houses, brood coops and roosts, '.dentists of tlie United States Depart ment of Agriculture say. In Imdly in fested places it is advisable to dean and spray with a stronger disinfectant, and in -18 hours follow with a good spray or coating of whitewash. An effective whitewash for this purpose is made as follows: Slake half a peck of lime and di lute it with 20 gallons of water; add one pound of salt previously dissolved in water; to this mixture add two are are » ' ' ' , « .4 .-J Whitewash, if Properly Applied, De stroys Parasites and Makes House Freeh and Clean. quarts of crude carbolic acid. Apply with a spray pump or brush. This, if properly put on, not only kills the mites, but destroys all their eggs and makes the bouse or any building where It Is used fresh and clean. Cleanliness Is of the greatest im portance In keeping lice, mites, fleas, and other Insects under control. The poultry houses, roosts, dropping boards, brood coops, and all other places that the fowls occupy should he kept clean. An abundance of light and fresh air should be provided. While these things cannot be depended on to keep away lice and mites, they make It easier to determine when the pests rAT-j- « are present and help to keep the fowls healthy, vigorous, and better able to withstand an attack of lice and mites. Sick or diseased fowls are always the first victims of these parasites, which makes it important that the fowls be kept healthy. TOWAGE HARD FIGHT AGAINST CORN BORER Steps Taken to Prevent Spread of Insect Pest. Specialists in Charge of Work Have Completed Plans for Carrying on Work—Infested Area Borders on Lake Erie. (Prepared by tbe United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Suppressive measures against the European corn borer are to he applied vigorously this spring in tlie western part of New York state to test tlie pos sibility of preventing the natural spread of this pest. Specialists of the United States Department of Agricul ture in charge of the vfork have com pleted their plans, which will be car ried out in co-oi>eration with state agencies. Tlié infested area where Hie experi ment is to be tried out borders on Lake Erie and partly on that section of Can ada where the corn borer made its ap pearance last year. The fight is to be carried against the insect while in its winter quarters. The corn stubble and refuse that have been lying in the fields since last year's harvest will be cleaned up and burned. Meanwhile, as another method of at tack, thousands of cocoons of a small, wasp-like insect whose grub has been found to be a parasitic enemy of tlie corn borer are being sent to the Uni ted States by a representative of the department who is in southern France studying the enemies of the pest. Thus far about 5,000 cocoons have been re ceived at tbe Boston office of the de partment, where they are hatched out and the winged insects liberated in hundreds in infested fields. Tlie Eu ropean corn borer, which lias been known in this country but a few years, is lookell upon us one of the most dangerous insect pests that have made their appearance in tlie United States. Some fears are entertained that It will eventually make its way to the corn belt. Infestations of the pest occur in sections of New York and Massachusetts, where federal quarantine to check tlie spread of tfee insect are in force. tbe Insects That Defy Winter. In the dead wood of old snags are many Insects that live through the winter regardless of how cold It gets; creatures whose weak bodies seem to defy the frigid temperature.
