Elktnton on the international wheat agreement. Since wheat is one of the main crops of Ben ton county, I feel it is very im portant that every producer of wheat read and study this article. WHAT 811001.!) I GROW? This question is very popular these days. It pops up in every farming community of our state. Need for high production of many crops during the last war, and during post-war years (up to 1948) was so great that govern ment support prices were main tained at levels calculated to give farmers a good! return for in creased production. Now, we are face to face with )surpluses of certain grains. processed foods. fruits. vegetables~and some seed and specialty crops.‘Although con gress has not yet brought out any of the suggested “agricul tural program bills," you and I know that some shifting of farm operations is probably necessary. In the dry-land wheat sections; it's very difficult to raise any other crpp. The only question is one of getting the right variety that can compete most favorably in the markets. But in other areas, a farmer has more choice. He can generally switch to any cash crop that promises a better income. If the Hired Hands were farming next year, they would carefully scan the price support program (when it finally de velops) and plan crops accord ingly. A few months ago,‘ a news release by the Department’s Pro duction 8: Marketing Administra tion stated, “A price support pro gram to encourage increased pro duction of hay, pasture, and range grass seed in expectation of greater need for such seed during the next few years" ap pears logical. This seed is.to be used on some of the acreage now in wheat, cotton and other cash crops. Seed needed will be alfal fa, severabclovers, lespedeza and several git-asses. Range grass seed suc as buffalo grass. switch grass, bluestem, lovegrass and Indian grass will also be in cluded. The program is already in operation or 1949 crops, but will doubtless continue next year if reduction of cereal, fibre and oilseed crops is made in accord-1 ance with indicated programs. I Ship ram! rm or Expms Factory-Typo Ovotllcullng PAY LATER—69.O. WILLIAMS - 1109 tincoln Yakima ' By C. F. WEBSTER. Extension Agent New recommendations on con trolling peach tree borer, the most important pest of peach growers, now are available in circular form at the county ex tension office. The information is in the form of an rxperiment sta tions circular written by Edward W. Anthon, assistant entomolo gist at the Tree Fruit experiment station, Wenatchee; Borer injury is recognized by a jelly-like gum mixed with dirt and small pellets or refuse ex. creted by the borers at the ground level. The larvae feed on the soft inner bark at the base of the trunk or on the adjacent roots, seriously injuring and often kill. ing the trees. Now is the time to watch for evidence of infesta tion. Propylene dichloride is the preferred, material to use in klll - the borer. This material has been used experimentally only on peach trees three years and older and therefore ‘its use on younger trees would be entirely on the grower's own risk. Growers with only a few trees should purchase a commercial preparation of the propylene di chloride emulsion rather ‘than prepate his own unless he has quite a few trees, satisfactory mixing facilities and reliable technical help. Best time to ‘apply the emul sion is around ,Septemher .20 to October 2 because then it can kill the larvae when they are young. That prevents approxi mately four months of feeding. The material is applied by first making a circular _trench one to two inches from the trunk of the tree. The emulsion is then pour ed into the trench and covered with soil to prevent evaporation. This kills the larvae by produc ing a poisonous gas which is heavier than air. “53’! ’92: 25335“ . . Farm and forest fire danger is much greater now than for sev eral years. Unless everybody is really careful this year there’s not likely to be much of a vacav tion season ahead for either the farmers or tourists. It will take effort to “keep Washington green" this year. , Weeds, brush and forests have been as dry this month as they usually are a month later. If dry weather continues conditions will be worse just at the time more tourists are traveling. Already many forest areas are being clos ed and logging is being curtail ed. Smoke from fires, of course, ruins visibility for vacationers. who are expected to be traveling more thanever this year—not to mention possible loss of lives and property. ' A big reason why fire is such a peril this year is that two un usually wet years have produced a large amount of brush and weeds. This debris now chokes roadsides, woodlands and almOst any non-cultivated _land. It's _dry and getting drier while the human hazard is becoming ater. gash? PBICE STORAGE Prospects for wheat prices and for solution of the storage prob lem for .Northwest grain have taken a turn for the better the past few weeks. / Karl Robson, Washington State Colege’s extension price expert. said today that the critical price storage outlook has eased be cause at two factors: prospects for a smaller wheat Icrop in the Northwest, and Congressional legislation. insuring action on emergency storage. Robson pointed out that dry weather is likely to cut .the Washington wheat crop by 20 to 30 percent under last year's yield. That means less wheat to crowd available storage space. In addition. the liberalized storage ‘program announced by Secretary of Agriculture Charles Brannon will help to hold cash wheat prices near the loan level 'atﬁharvest time. _ The outlook e few weeks ago. Robson said, indicated Wheat prices would be at least 25 cents per bushel belovr the loan rate by harvest.
