4-Alflona (la.) Upp«r Oe» Moine« Thurtday, 5«p». 7, FARM PAGE t DEVELOPMENTS j • FROMDEVALOIS • BY GALEN DeVALOlS Kossuth Extension Director Question from Whittemore - I sprayed my corn with 2,4D. Is this safe to make into silage and feed to dairy cows ? Answer - Yes this is O.K. 2,4D is a very safe chemical in reference to livestock. - o - Question from Swea City My corn was recently badly damaged by hail. I've heard emMNMKftttMftiffi**^"*"* about nitrate poisoning. Is this corn safe to make into silage and be fed to livestock ? Answer - To make along story short there could be a small possibility of high nitrate levels in your damaged corn, but the nitrate poisoning stories have been greatly over-inflated by farm magazines. A few years ago in the drought in northeast Iowa, Iowa State University took over 1,000 samples and less than 3% showed any possibilities of nitrate problems and all this feed could be fed if a couple of precautions are followed. These precautions are: 1. If there are high nitrate levels they are found low in the stalk - so chop your silage at about 12-16 inches from the ground. 2. Don't feed a full feed of the questionable feed, feed some grain or hay along with it. 3. The ensiling process will cut down on the nitrate about one- half, so delay feeding the silage for at least three weeks and a month would be better. 4. Corn-fed green chop could be more dangerous than silage so be more careful. 5. Add 20 Ibs. of ground limestone per ton to the silage. 6. Feed a supplement level of 20,000 units of Vitamin A per animal per day. If you wish a sample checked, contact me and I'll tell you how to prepare a sample for mailing to Ames.

IMPLEMENT JOTS NORTH MAIN ALOONA CORN YIELDS AND PROFITS HINGE ON TIMELY SPRING OPERATIONS Successful corn growers have found that high corn yields and profits are dependent on how weU they planned all their spring operations during the fall and winter. Why is this planning so important ? If one checks the rainfall records during April, he will find an average of only eight days sufficiently dry to allow spring plowing. Yet, researched far me rex- perience have shown that corn yields are, generally highest when planted in late April or early May. Corn yields generally decrease 1.5 to 2.0 bushels per acre each day planting is delayed after May 10. This delay means a loss ° f A° r Hsf r of lt each operation needed before planting corn and the days required to complete the Job will show that farmers are usually rushed for enough good days in the spring. How do you save these important spring days for final seedbed preparation and early planting for highest now by planning your complete corn production program for next year. Set your yield goal. Have your soil analyzed to determine the amount and kinds of fertilizer needed to produce that yield. The fertilizer recommendation will include broadcast application and starter fertilizer to be applied. Save the available spring days for planting. Apply the broadcast fertilizer as soon as your present crop is; removed and plow the land this fall. In this way, fall-applied fertilizers are safely stored in the soil and at a depth where corn roots will have adequate nutrition for sturdy rui applied fertilizers and fall plowing are the first important steps to save valuable spring days for planting corn which will produce maximum yields and profits. Drop by your local CFS plant today. Ask the plant manager about the complete CFS Plan-and> Profit Corn Program. It is an easy step-by-step way to grow more corn. It's based on a simple premise: Keep your soil fertility high, control all the controllable factors that effect the quality and quantity of your corn crops, and you'll raise better corn and more of it. The major step is: Fertilize This Fall. CUSTOM FARM SERVICES, INC.
