At Garrigan, Feb. 8 Outline Corn & Bean Clinic Program Here Farmers of this area who are planning to attend the special Corn and Soybean Clinic here in Algona on Thursday, Feb. 8, at the Gar* rigan auditorium can now have a preview of what to expect. A "dress rehearsal'' for the big farm show was held in Chicago last wee'; and it looks like every phase of corn and soybean production will be discussed before the day is over. You'll learn how to combat weeds, fight bugs, fertilize properly, select and plant good seed with modern equipment, harvest the crops and even the best ways to dry and store the grain. Leading off the program will be a spokesman for Amchem who will present the whole story on controlling annual broadleaf weeds and grasses with Amiben. A humorous slide presentation entitled "More Jack from Your Beanstalk" points out that the re is no shortcut to success in the soybean business. Next on the program will be the DeKalb Agricultural Association with the full story on developing and producing a constant flow of new and more productive seed corn varieties for all areas of the country. A 16-minute movie makes certain nothing is left out. Allis-Chalmers is next with another film in which a young farmer buys a new ONE-NINETY XT tractor at Mom's insistence, only to find "grandpa" has a hard time getting used to modern farm power. Rounding out the morning session will be an excellent movie entitled "A Very Good Year," produced by Shell Chemical Co. Some of the scenes actually show numerous kinds of insects attacking corn seed and seedlings. After this story is told, a free lunch will be provided for farmers attending the six-hour program. A field director for the American Soybean Association was present at the Chicago "dry run" and discussed, openly, the marketing outlook for U. S. produced beans in the light of a very competitive world picture. He was Mr. Merv Syverson who may be in Algona for the clinic. Smith-Douglass is next on the afternoon program. The most stressed fertilization practice was the proper placement of fertilizer in the row. The spokesman bluntly told those in the audience that farmers "should not expect soybeans to eat the leftovers from last year's corn crop. . . .if they expect the best in results." The story of minimum tillage and narrow-rows was thoroughly explored by an Allis-Chalmers representative. Then comes another movie, in which the narrator (who is in person), talks with Harry Young and Clyde Right (who are on film) about their trail-blazing experiences in growing corn and soybeans the new way. The formal commercial program is brought to a professional climax by Behlen who has a complete story to tell in the area of crop drying and storage. The speaker pointed out how important certain engineering features are in protecting corn and soybeans and other grains held in storage. Corn and Soybean Clinic day is rapidly approaching for farmers in this area. It looks as though the total program will be time well spent. Doors open at Garrigan at 8:30 a.m. There will be coffee and doughnuts waiting. An outdoor recreation movie (on hunting and shooting) will entertain until the actual Clinic program starts at 9:15 a.m. The show will be over about 3:30 in the v afternoon. Anyone who wishes to stay on to ask the company experts present special questions, may do so. This is the largest farm show of its kind in the country.
