Weeders Guide By EARL ARONSON AP Newsfeatures Every drop of water saved is an achievement in arid Israel. There dry farming is a way of life and so is controlled environment and experimenting to change the ways of plants to the Israeli way of life. These things I learned on a tour of the Volcani Institute for Agricultureal Research at Rehovoth, with Dr. Frank Nit- zany, plant virus expert, as my guide. We sat at a table with Haim 7,;ihan, deputy director of the research organization, who described efforts to change the habits of fruits, vegetables and flowers to permit early export. The goal is to send supplies early to take advantage of high prices and demand in foreign markets. '"Hie five producing factors," Nitzany explained, "are land, water, skilled labor, capital and sun, in that order. Our job is to get the best and as much as we can from a combination of thse factors. The people we need are not just plain farmers. We can get the same result with 10 lit- res of oil (for a machine) that we can get from untrained labor." Saving land in the little country and saving water are vital, he added. "In greenhouses we use skilled labor and sun; on pastures we used skilled labor and less water." Dry farming is an important operation. We saw numerous fields lined with plastic tents that permit condensation to capture moisture and to reduce evaporation. The institute services include field crops, horticultures, soil and water, livestock, plant pro- lection, agriculture engineering, food storage and technology — which includes how to ship oranges and other crops abroad in good quality. It means getting good tomato juice. There are experiment stations from the Negev Desert to the cooler Golan Heights, where apples and citrus fruits grow almost side by side. Rainfall ranges from 40 millimeters at Elat in the southern tip to 200 in the comparatively lush Beersheva and 1,000 in the Golan Heights, a drab, mountainous, hostile area. Zaban's statement that "we need green spots" was spotlighted as I drove later along the winding roads. Suddenly there would be a green place, an oasis such as we envisoned from a desert motion picture, with palm and other trees and vegetation. A new community — Nature is helped along. Zaban related that 150 scientists were collaborating to get four lambs a year, instead of one or two, through artificial insemination; to increase flower plants by tissue culture for reproduction in four months instead of four years. "We are working here toward the will of the farmers, to give them what they want as soon as possible. Communication with the farmers is very fast." Often farmers come to the Institute near Tel Aviv to discuss their problems and take home information even before it is disseminated generally by the researchers. Rain falls generally only four months a year and the aim is to determine how to get the same crop with less irrigation. "For instance," Zaban said, "cotton is being raised in Israel with only 50 per cent of the water used in California." Tomatoes are grown aided by small plastic pipes, with only one hole giving each plant its daily need on the surrounding ground. Baked Beans Times Four By AILEEN CLAIRE NBA Food Editor A baked bean dish goes a long way during an outdoor cookout. With four types of beans combined, no one can miss getting some essential protein and in a very flavorful way. Leftovers make excellent cold sandwiches using rye or pumpernickel bread and are packable for hikers or bikers to snack on. BAKED BEANS AMERICANA 2 cans (1 Ib. each) pinto beam, drained 1 can (l Ib.) kidney beam, drained 1 can (1 Ib. 4 ounces) chick peas, drained 1 can (1 Ib. 12 ounces) New England-style baked beans, undralned 8 slices bacon 4 large onions, peeled and separated Into rings 1 cup dark corn syrup >/& cup cider vinegar 1 teaspoon dry mustard '/2 teaspoon garlic powder Mix pinto beans, kidney beans, chick peas and baked beans in 3-quart casserole. Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat. Drain bacon on absorbent paper. Add onions, corn syrup, vinegar, dry mustard and garlic powder to bacon fat in skillet. Bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Crumble bacon. Add onion mixture and bacon to beans. Bake covered in 350-degree oven 30 minutes. Bake uncovered 1V6 hours until browned and liquid is thickened. Makes 12 servings. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) BETROTHED-Mr. and Mrs. Enrique C.
