PageS Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Wednesday, March 16, 1988 Agriculture Set-Aside Land Information ACR REQUIREMENT All land used as set-aside (ACR) must have been planted to a row crop, small grain, or used as set-aside in two of the previous three years. If it was set-aside last year, it will probably qualify for set-aside this year. ALL SET-ASIDE SEEDED BY JUNE! The Cass County ASC Committee has established June 1 as the final date to seed set-aside (ACR) ground for the 1988 feed grain and wheat programs. All program participants are encouraged to seed their set-aside ground early in hopes of getting a good cover established. Eligible set-aside covers are small grains and/or annual or biannual grasses or legumes, excluding grain sorghum and soybeans. SMALL GRAINS ON SET-ASIDE Small grains that are on set- aside acres must be clipped before the grain matures (hard dough stage) or you may choose to pay a $10 inspection fee to allow the small grain to mature ASCS News By Dan Duttllnger a ?<WM W i ¥ and reseed. When using the re- seeding option, you must lightly disc the ground by Aug. 31. These provisions cover both fall and spring seeded small grains. MEASUREMENT SERVICE All farmers who participate in the farm programs are encouraged to use measurement service. This ASCS service provides acreage compliance to farmers and eliminates farmer measuring mistakes. Appointments for measurement service are being taken. Producers wanting measurement service can request an ASCS reporter to flag the ground or obtain the needed footage to stake the ground themselves. We are planning to have at least three people available for field measurements. This should More Cattle Market-Ready WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. An estimated 6 percent more cattle were in feedlots in the 13 major cattle-feeding states at the beginning of 1988 compared to a year ago, according to the USDA Jan. 1 Cattle on Feed Report. However, economists have interpreted numbers from the report as "steady to weak" for the market, because considerably more cattle are market-ready than a year ago, said David C. Petritz, an agricultural economist at Purdue University. There were an estimated 9.8 million head of feedlot cattle, about equal to the same period in 1985. The 13 major cattle-feeding states are: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Washington. The USDA report also showed about 6.7 million cattle were placed into feedlots from October through December. That is 1 percent less than a year ago and the smallest amount since 1980, with the exception of abnormally small placements in the fourth quarter of 1981, Petritz said. Declining feedlot profits and concern about the strength of beef demand caused feedlot managers to slow placements, he said. JhfMK.

APPOINTMENTS We are encouraging farmers to schedule appointments for obtaining farm worksheets and actual program signup. By scheduling an appointment, someone will be ready to explain the program provisions and answer your questions when you arrive. We hope this method will make it better for all concerned. You can call for an appointment at 753-4705. Signup for the feed grain and wheat programs is Feb. 16 through April 15. Participants of 0/92 have until March 11 to enroll. PLOWING 1968 SET-ASIDE Fall tillage of set-aside will be allowed starting Sept. 1 under the following conditions: 1) a written request to till is made to the county committee, and 2) the request is approved by SCS and the county committee. Also, set-aside may be tilled starting no earlier than Sept. 1 if the land is to be seeded to a fall seeded crop. ACR GRAZING RESTRICTIONS The five month non-grazing period for all set-aside is April 1 through Aug. 31. This five month grazing restriction also applies to conserving use land under the 0/92 programs. HAYING ACR NOT ALLLOWED Land designated as set-aside (ACR) cannot be used for hay at any time during the 1988 calendar year. If it qualifies, land used for "hay last year may be used as set-aside this year. PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY Eligibility for participation in all programs administered by ASCS is established under law without respect to race, color, religion, sex, national origin or mental or physical handicap. Better Corn Quality Goal Of Purdue Expert WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Purdue University Agricultural Engineer Richard Stroshine wants corn to be everything it's cracked up to be. But he wants it to crack up at the right time. With world markets being more competitive, corn growers have identified corn quality as a key issue. Although much has been done to study various aspects of quality, Stroshine feels there are four key aspects of grain quality that should be considered when selecting a hybrid. Therefore, Purdue's research is aimed at hybrid differences for 1) breakage, 2) resistance to storage molds, 3) dry milling quality, and 4) drying rate. "We are, for example, trying to identify a harder kernel that can withstand the 10 or 12 handlings it gets when going to an overseas market," says Stroshine. "But just to create a hybrid with a harder kernel might not do the trick. We also need to consider what happens when it goes to the dry miller and the effects of high- temperature drying.'' Stroshine explains that a miller wants a large flake — for example, for cereal, — and some kernels have larger flakes than others. Stroshine notes that Purdue is unique in that it has looked at all four, key kernel, quality aspects on the same hybrids. "During 1984 and 1985, twenty newly developed hybrids were evaluated and differences were established," says Stroshine. "For example, the breakage susceptibility of samples dried at 200 degrees Fahrenheit varied from 7.2 to 17.3 percent. We also found differences in the resistance to storage molds, the number of stress cracks developed, and how long it takes to remove 10 points of moisture." Much of this information is practical and usable now.
