Brown's Bylines Top-Dress Wheat Whenever You Can By DON BROWN : Agricultural Agent When should I top-dress wheat ; with nitrogen? How much should I apply? ; The best time is just prior to .the time wheat starts srping growth. This cannot always be done because of weather condi: tions, so t h e best answer is to top-dress now anytime the ; weather permits. How much to apply is b e s t determined by a soil test. If the soil test recommendation is 40 pounds of nitrogen per acre, and none has been applied, put on 40 pounds. If 20 pounds of nitrogen has been applied as plow - down, the top dressing now should be 20 pounds more or enough to bring the total to 40 pounds nitrogen per acre. Elm Disease Don Spreading Dutch elm disease, the des; tractive wilt disease of elms which appeared in Northeast Kansas six [years ago, was found in four new counties during 1962. f Positive identification of this ; disease was made in Brown, Jackson, Geary and Sedgwick, Counties. This makes a total of 33 counties in the east and southeast part of the state which have l infected trees. This disease is spread by the «elm bark beetle, so control measures are based on a 2-pronged attack: (1) diagnosis, removal and destuction of disease wood which harbors the beetles; (2) spraying healthy trees to protect them • from the beetles carrying the fungus. Important preventive measures to control Dutch elm disease by destroying elm bark beetles should be taken now during the winter months before the leaves start their growth in the spring. Dell Gates, K-State extension entomologist, says that high value elm trees should be protected annually with a thorough dormant spray application of DDT—covering the tree from twigs to trunk base. The spray may be applied any time during the winter months when the temperature is above 32 degrees. However, if application is made in late winter, the heaviest and most effective deposit will be present when bark beetles attack in the spring. Use methoxychlor for late spraying. For hydraulic sprayers, use eight gallons of 25 per cent emulsifiable concentrate added to 92 gallons of water. Accurate diagnosis depends on careful culture and examination in the KSU laboratory This is a free service. Several one-half inch diameter twigs six inches long should be cut fom the wilt- ing and dying limb that shows the brown streaking just under the bark. These should be wrapped to prevent drying and brought to the county agent for mailing. Time To Prime Grape Vines Grape vines should be pruned in late winter after the most severe weather of the season has passed. Keep the wood as close to the main trunk as possible, but remember that all of last year's growth should not be rmeoved since grapes are borne on one- year-old wood. Wood that is lead- pencil size with buds three to four inches apart on the cane is normally the most productive. A 4-cane kniffen system is recommended. This means that four fruiting canes of 10 to 12 buds each are left at a point where they are close to the main trunk and can be supported and protected by the trellis wires. Plans were made to make and send a farm scrapbook to India. Tri Hepta — Cake decorating was the feature of the evening at the home of Mrs. T. G. Milburn.
