'Customer First' In Program On Farm Chemicals WASHINGTON (UPI)-An Agriculture Department official said today tlic consumer must be considered first in the government's development and regulation of farm chemicals. Dr. M.R. Clarkson, associated administrator of the Agricultural Research Service, said a major role of the department is to assure consumers that their food .supply will not only be adequate --through the effective use of chemicals as production tools -but that it will be wholesome and safe from classical contamination. A further obligation is to agricultural producers, Clarkson said, helping them to produce their foods and fibers efficiently, reduce production costs, and crease their income. Clarkson said the department is meeting ils chemical responsibili- lies to both groups through re- .-·earch and protective services. ARS chemigal research includes investigations of the use of chemicals in soil treatments to conserve soil and water, and in controlling insect pests, diseases, and weeds. In these ways, research helps improve farmer ef- liciency and gives consumers hotter quality farm products. In ' u r n , every one benefits from farm products that cost less but are more varied, nutritious, and convenient.

American consumers enter supermarkets with confidence today, knowing that Hie shelves will be stocked with ample quantities of nutritious foods. But, this is no happenstance.

The future holds many oppor- Dcdieated agricultural scientists and technicians have joined hands through these years in providing equally-dedicated farmers with quality seed of adapted varieties.
