Junior Girl Scouts On Monday, April 21, the Junior Girl Scouts had their meeting. We talked about what camps we are going to this summer. We went on a hike. We got into groups and picked a leader from each group. The leaders got a penny and at each corner they would flip it. If it was heads, we'd go right, and if it was tails, we would go left. Tammy Harms, Maria Baade and Angela Boeckholt served lunch. —Lori Huesman, reporter. Don U.M.W.

Phone 928-2515 Titonka Ley Urges, Beware Of Bargain Herbicides During the past month two Kossuth County farmers have called me about being offered by telephone "bargain buys" in herbicides. Reports that many farmers in Iowa are being offered what the telephone salesman claims to be bargain price on various chemicals which may or may not have herbicidal value. In most situations, the products offered are inferior in quality and quantity of active ingredient, and the telephone salesman misleads the purchaser regarding how the chemical may be used, and the cost is abnormally high for the amount of product obtained. The typical approach is for an out-of-state salesman to call late in the evening or early in the morning and offer to sell THE TITONKA TOPIC April 24, 1975 Page 7 his products. Most often the product offered under a hard-sell approach is a total vegetation control herbicide at $14. 95 per gallon in 20 or 50-gallon containers. Some have EPA registration; others do not. Although the active ingredients are usually for non-cropland area use, the salesman may claim the herbicide may be used not only around buildings, but in fence rows, on roadsides and in fallow ground. In one instance, a product was promoted to control weeds for two years in corn. The purchaser is seldom told the active ingredient or rate to use. One product's label states it contains about 1962,4-D,l% pentachlorophenol and other phenols -ind less than 1% brom- acil; the remainder is petroleum solvents and inert ingredients. It is to be used at one to two gallons undiluted per 1,000 square feet. It would take a minimum of ten gallons to treat one mile of fence row, and, at £15 per gallon, the total cost would be $150. On a pcr-scrc basis, 44 to SS gallons would be needed and would cost $660 to $1, 320 per acre! There are many excellent herbicides and soil sterilants available which are legal and much less costly to use. Most purchasers would be wise to select what they need from a reliable dealer who will stand behind his products and service problems that might arise rather than from a fly-by-night operator.
