TUESDAY, JULV 8,1958 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAG1 WVki Farm Column Bacterial Blight Common This Year In Soybeans By ffttiMAN W. MAY Cwnnty Pwmi A disease in soybeans called bacterial blight is very common this ytaf, with some counties reporting as much as 80 per cen ot the fields affected. It's no that bad here, tort we recently saw a 40-aettt field of Harosoj beans in St. Jacob township where practically every plan showed effects of the disease. Bacterial blight is one of th most widespread soybean diseas es in Illinois. It is usually one o the first leaf spot diseases to appear on young plants. It is fav ored by cool, rainy weather, On infected plants, small, angula spots varying from yellow tic brown develop on the leaves. The brown, central area of these spots is usually surrounded by a water-soaked margin.These spot later dry and become brown ani sunken; they are frequently sur rounded by a narrow, yellow border. The yellow borders are more noticeable on the top sid of the leaf. Under some condi lions, the infection travels especially along the veins, followei ,by death and breaking of the tis sues. The leaves then have a torn, ragged appearance of th leaves, which shou 1 ^ not be con fused with disease symptoms. Although bacterial blight de velops more extensively in coo weather, it appears to a limite extent throughout the summer While the disease is most com monly found on the- leaves, can also infect the stems, lea stalks and pods. It i; seed-borne Mont Are Susceptible Susceptibility to bacteria blight varies considerably amon soybean varieties. Most varietie extensively grown in Illinois ar susceptible. Best prospect fo control lies in development o resistant varieties. Work is unde \vay.on this problem at the Re gional Soybean Laboratory. Answering a recent inquiry w made of the U.S. Regional soy bean Laboratory at Urbana, Don aid W. Chamberlain, pathologis says they have no evidence to in dicate that Harosoy is more su seceptible to bacterial bligh than any of our other varietie Harosoy is being grown on mor and more acreage and t h blight on it is becoming mor noticeable. Although Hawkeye ha been reported to be more resist ant. Dr. Chamberlain states tha in their experimental tests, Clark Hawkeye and Harosoy have th same degree of susceptibility t the disease. Bacterial blight, like other d seases of the leaf, can caus leaves to drop. What effect re duced foliage has on bean yield is not definitely known. In HI nois the disease in most year is probably checked appreciabl by the onset of hot weather an more serious damage to the cro thus prevented. Few Corn Borers Corn borer infestation in th county is very light. Except i some fields of sweet corn ther are not nearly enough of th borers to justify treatment. Stev Moore, entomologist with the I linois State Natural History Sur vey, stopped in the office las week and reported he had foun practically no borers or egg mas ses through central and southwes tern Illinois. E. H. Easter of th agricultural chemical division Swift and Co. was also in the o fice to discuss the insect situa tion. He said he had examine corn in about 70 fields in th area and had found borers in on ly two fields in very light num bers and earworms in only fiv fields. If you should find corn borer in large numbers, let us knov SPECIALISTS IN COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL • WIRING • AIR CONDITIONING • HEATING FHA TKRMfr- DAMP ELECTRIC AND NEATHNI lit* Mlllm M.

The time for control, in case you do find them, is just about past in most fields. Mow- ever, tt appears now that there s not any field com In the county with enough borers to justify treatment. Pfind Wagon A feeding wagon owned by Jonathan Rogier of Helvetia township is a real labor saver. Jonathan built it himself, from plans From the University of Wisconsin College of Agriculture, using about $200 worth of materials. It s 20 ft. long and 7 ft. wide, mounted on a 6-ton wagon running gear, and will leed 50 to 75 cattle. There are 32 cows in the herd at present. Jonathan chops the feed daily, now using Sudan grass. He will feed barley and alfalfa silage along with the green chop. He has fed green chop since 1956 with good results. "When good alfalfa was green chopped there was no summer drop in milk production," says Jonathan. It akes about 30 minutes daily to shop the feed and haul the wagon to the feeding area. Grape Disease There have been „ a number of inquiries about black rot in grapes. The fruit is turning dark arown or black, with the entire bunch usually affected. Unfavor able weather, so much high humidity, has made the disease worse. Nothing can be done now to control the disease, but it can be prevented, in the future spraying. The grape vines shoulc be sprayed 10 days after their bloom has fallen, using a tablespoon and a half of ferbam and one tablespoon of DDT (actual" to one gallon of water. This spray should be repeated ! weeks later. A ready-mixed com bination spray containing these materials will also give good results. If you want to prevent black rot in your grapes, next year you might clip these directions and save for future use. A permanent trench silo buil of tilt-up concrete slabs was re cently installed on the Adrian Mersinger farm in Jarvis town ship by Klueter Bros, of Ed wardsville. The floor, also con crete, was already there, having been used with a regular dirt sided trench. After each slab was unloaded from the truck onto the ground it was pulled up in place by chain hooked to a tractor. The silo is 60 ft. long, 12 ft wide at the bottom, flared to 1 ft. wide at the top. The slabs are 6 ft. wide and 8 ft. 4 in. high with the bottom 4 in. extending into the ground. There are 10 slabs on each side. Cost of the slabs Installed was $440. Wheat Harvest Half to two-thirds of the whea in the, county has been combined considerably more in some com munities. Rains have stopped work a few times. Yields are run ning high, many fields over 41 bu. per acre and a few 60 bu yields have been reported. Mas moisture test are low and tes weights are high, with very good quality grain. • A concrete horizontal silo wa built right down the center of a new pole-frame loafing shed by Arthur Schneider of St. Jacol township. It provides a conveni ent way to supply silage to thi cows and the roof protects i from the weather. Plan now to attend the annua Madison County Fair at Highland July 30-Aug. 3.
