6-Algona (la.) Upper Dei Molnej Tuesday, Jan. 16, 1968 FARM PAGE /** I"* I MEMOS PROM MARGARET for credit. One easy way is to subtract from totals of the down payment, plus all the other payments from the cash price - this can be as much as one-third more. Interest rates of 1 1/2% per month add up to 18% per year, which is really quite a high rate. Market Hog Show For Algona Area On Feb. 1 A market hog show will be held at the Algona Sales Pavilion, February 1 sponsored by the Kossuth County Pork Producers, announces show chairman, Dave Anderson of Algona. The show, new this year, is open to pork producers of all ages in Kossuth and other counties. It will feature two classes, a "on- the-hoof" and a carcass class. There is no entry fee and donated prizes total $225.00 in addition to a free lunch being donated. The event also features a judging contest with two separate classes. One class for adults and a junior class for those in high school or younger. Chairman of the contest is Bob Chambers from Corwith. Galen De- Valois, county extension director, encourages all 4-H and FFA members and others to be sure to take part in this educational event. "Cut-out information on the top 20 in both the carcass class and "on-the-hoof' class will be furnished by Hormel & Company," announces Dick Kuecker, president of the Kossuth County Pork Producers. The contestants and public will also be invited to see the carcasses at Fort Dodge on Saturday. » • • DEVELOPMENTS : FROMDEVALOIS •. .••••••••< By GALEN DeVALOIS County Extension Director Question- What are rootworm control recommendations for 1968? Answer - On corn following corn we recommend applying at planting time Bux 10, Thimet or Diazinon. Dyfonate has just recently been given an unrestricted label and is also recommended. Then we recommend in late June (about the 25th) to check for possible rootworm damage. Due to certain circumstances such as weather,, it may be necessary to apply more insecticide. If needed, then Diazinon, Thimet, parathion, or Sevin may be applied at lay-by cultivation. We do not recommend the lay- by application to be used as the only application. This is because it has not been nearly as consistently successful as the planter application. (We don't expect 10 inches of rain in a month, so the planter application will usually work better than it did in 1967) You will also note that we are not even mentioning the para- thions or combinations for planter application on corn following corn. Theyjustdon'thaveenough holding strength to be there when needed. On first year corn we still recommend applying aldrin or heptachlor either broadcast or in a band. (On dairy farms these fields should not be used for hay, silage or pasture for 3 years) Question - My soybeans in 1967 had a lot of volunteer corn in them. In reference to rootworm control, do I still treat the 1968 corn like corn following soybeans? Answer - Dutch Sylwester says rootworms can't read and certainly were in your volunteer corn and laid eggs, so this year you must treat it like corn on corn. UDM WANT ADS PAY OFF By MARGARET PRATT Extension Home Economist Most of us have problems with money. One problem is that we do not have enough money to do all the things we need to do and buy all the things we want to buy. Another problem is that we do not always spend the money we do have so we get the most out of it. In fact many of us waste a lot of our money. We don't mean to. Usually we don't even know we are wasting our money. Never sign anything until you're absolutely sure what you are signing. A plan for spending is necessary - call it a budget if you want to, but know what your fixed expenses - rent, food, installment payments, etc. - are. Always have an emergency fund, too. Make out a list of the food and groceries that you need before going to the store - "impulse" buying is hard of the pocketbook. Buying on the "easy pay" or installment plan looks and sounds easy, but shop around for credit- try to find out how much it costs ^Do*it With Your Personal Property • INSURE IT 3 WAYS WITH A NEW HOUSEHOLDERS' PROTECTIVE FLOATER i Covers against Loss by A pipe INCLUDING w rmu EXTENDED COVERAGE • THEFT • OTHER HAZARDS Blossom Insurance Agency 109 N.
