HUFF. 1U, Commissioner of Insurance Nitrogen Application Is Management Decision Fall application of nitrogen is a management decision. It should be considered if you intend to plant early or in narrow rows. Comparable yields have been obtained from both fall and spring applications in north central Iowa experiments. The concept of fall nitrogen application is to apply an immobile form (ammonium) of nitrogen and to minimize the conversion of a mobile form ('nitrate). This conversion is done by bacteria and is most rapid in soils at temperatures above 50 degrees. For the most of the nitrogen to remain as ammonium, the soil temperature must be 50 degrees or lower and getting colder. These temperatures ac- cur, on tihe average, after Oct. 15 in northern Iowa. Some conversion to nitrate will occur at all .temperatures above 32 degrees. October 7-11 morning readings at KLGA reported a soil temperature at 6" depth from a low of 47 degrees to a high of 58 degrees. A. W. Boyken Attends Bankers Convention Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon; Elliot Richardson, former cabinet officer; William Erwin, assistant secretary of agriculture; and Jesse Owens, former Olympic star, were among the speakers heard at the Iowa Bankers Association Convention in Des Moines, October 6 to 9. At the convention from Titonka was A. W. Boyken, vice president of the Titonka Savings Bank. Some 5,000 from Iowa's 668 banks attended the 88th annual convention, the largest state bankers meeting in the nation. Mayne Discusses Imports With Ford Washington, D.C.: Congressman Wiley Mayne (R-Iowa) was one of five midwestern Republican congressmen who called on President Ford Thursday to discuss recent action suspend- ng grain sales to Russia. Mayne Bill Scherle (Iowa), Charles Thone (Nebr.), Vernon Thomson (Wise.), and Mark Andrews (N.D.) met with the President n the Oval Office. "We wanted Clarification of the system of monitoring farm exports announced Monday and assurances it would not result in an over all reduction in exports", Mayne said. "The President aid he had no intension Of imiting exports or farm income but had to act quickly on Friday when it appeared the Russians might be cornering the market. le also had information that Iran and other oil producing countries were about to make purchases. They obviously should not be permitted to acquire a controlling position i n American grain i n addition to their oil monopoly." The President told Mayne large transactions will be monitored to assure ,the availability of grain to domestic users and our regular foreign customers. "He said he fully realizes farmers cannot be expected to produce at full capacity without assurances there will be a market for their crops, and. .that includes free access to foreign markets. He promised to use the full power of government to encourage farm prices high enough to yield farmers a good profit", Mayne concluded. Americans Are Eating More Meat This Year An Iowa State University economist says claims that consumers have been walking past .tihe meat counter hi recent months without buying are untrue. Gene Futrell says the fact is that red meat and poultry consumption is showing a strong rebound this year from .the sharply lower figures of 1973. Per capita consumption of all red meats combined is expected to average nearly 188 pounds for this year, up about 13 Ibs. from 1973. Contrary to the beliefs of some, Futrell says consumption of a perishable commodity such as meat is largly regulated by bhe supply — consumers buy and consume whatever is available, no less and no more. The beat indicator of demand, he said, is the price at which the available supply moves into consumption. Because beef and pork production are up significantly this year, so is consumption. The economist said last year's consumption was down, not because of consumer resistance or high prices. Likewise, this year's greater consumption is the result of larger production, not greater demand. In 1975, Futrell expects a smaller total supply of red meat and poultry. Production will probflbly be down in almost lal categories except beef. Beef production will be up significantly, perhaps as high as 120 pounds per capita or more. Because general economic conditions are expected to be quite sluggish in 1975, Futrell says demand prospects for red meat and poultry are only modestly good at .this time.
