I Neither resistant nor non-resistant rootworms are gen- | erally present in first-year corn in sufficient numbers to cause | appreciable losses. So there's no need for high-priced "spe- | cialty" insecticides. But this doesn't mean your crop can't | be invaded by hordes of other hungry soil insects. Cutworms, | wireworms, white grubs and sod webworms usually cause | considerable damage to corn that follows sod, grass or various | small grains. That's why aldrin is especially important for | first-year corn. A single broadcast application of aldrin pro| vides outstanding control of 17 destructive pests plus season| long "crop insurance" that leads to those bonus bushels you're | always after. | Broadcast applications of aldrin give the best protection | to your entire acreage by reducing soil insect populations to | levels too low to cause costly losses. This is especially impor- | tant where the voracious black cutworm is concerned. Band| ing or row applications won't even give this persistent pest a | headache while he travels from untreated to treated areas. | Broadcast aldrin every year. You'll soon see why it's the | world's most successful corn soil insecticide. aldrin WE HAVE IT YOUR COMPLETE FARM STORE with a full line of CHEMICALS, HERBICIDES, INSECTICIDES, FERTILIZERS and SEEDS . . .
