One of the most recent cases where a North Mississippi County farmer reported good results from the treating of small grain seeds was from Herman Matthews of Yarbro who told the county agent that "It's certainly paying me good money for having treated mv barley seed." Mr. Matthews, according to Mr Bilbrey. was a little short of treated seed when lie planted his bailey crop so he finished his field with untreated seed. The part of the lieid planted in untreated seed is badly infested with rust and infection can's be found In the area ani[ a 25-y found a new way to do it. ' Harry J.
