S-Conservation Week Now On In Kossuth The week of June 18-25 is Soil Conservation Week, according to Julius Baas, chair man of the Kossuth district commissioners. Gov. Hughes has proclaimed it Soil Conservation Week throughout the state. "Too little or too much water has become very apparent in this area this spring," according to Lyle R. Riedinger of the U.S. Soil Conservation Service. Mr. Riedinger pointed out that prior to planting this spring many of the areas in the county were short of sub-soil moisture and planting rates were being carefully studied in case of a drought. "Then the rains came in the latter part of May and the fore part of June," he said, "causing top soil to be eroded from the unprotected cultivated fields and deposited in the low areas." Now the problem facing many farmers in the district is how to cope with surplus water. The SCS working through the local Soil Conservation District is able to assist farmers in preparing individual farm conservation plans and group plans that include water management.
