McKibben Agronomy Day Program In Nit Vernon On January 31 -o- -o- -o- Jefferson county farmers are in for a treat this Friday, January 31 at the annual Agronomy Day program at the First Presbyterian church. Besides hearing expert advice on zero - til and the latest research information on crops, Jefferson countians will get to visit with and hoar P.E. "Pat Johnson again. — It will be Pat's last program in Jefferson county, since he is retiring from the University of Illinois extension service at the end of the winter program. In urging a good turnout for the meeting, Extension Adviser Don Lee said, "Pat Johnson has been coming to Jefferson county with the latest research information on crop production for our county for the past 24 years. Pat has always done a fine job for us, so let's turn out and wish him farewell." Registration at the First Presbyterian church, a mile west of the Mt. Vernon square, will begin at 9:20 a.m. The meeting will start promptly at 10 a.m. and adjourn at 3:15 p.m. George McKibben, extension agronomist from the University of Illinois, will discuss Zero- Til and its ramifications. He will deal with the following questions: What are some of the factors farmers are considering in deciding whether zero- til is for them? What do we look for in planting equipment? What are some of the herbicides we would consider? Are fertility problems different? Does it have possibilities in sod (grass and legume), corn stalks, soybean 1 stubble and wheat stubble? How do we handle insecticide and j rodent control? When do we! plant, what row spacing, what i population, what hybrid? Is a j yield sacrifice necessary? ' Just as with any enterprise, or with any system of crop cul- i ture, no- til success depends u- j pon knowing what to do, how! to do it, when to do it. Some of the answers will be available here Friday. McKibben did the first re-' search on zero- til in 1962 at: Dixon Springs. It is being tried all over the state. Last year zero- til was used on about 1,250 acres in Jefferson county. McKibben will start the tM •till PAT JOHNSON morning program and Pat Johnson will take over as soon as he has finished. Colored slides will be used. Johnson, extension agronomist from the Brownstown Research Field, will discuss weeds and insect control, the latest crop varieties, and the latest research fertility indicating where George McKibben the stopping point is for nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The fertilizer dealers, of the county will serve coffee and doughnuts to the early arrivals. "Come early and visit your fellow farmer," Advisor Loo suggests.
