Conservation Comments THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, March 20, 19ft) Needed: $50 Billion For Conservation By IRVTN ROSS Work Unit Conservationist An estimate of the cost of soil and water conservation practices needed on non-federal rural land was made by applying current costs to data from the recent USDA Conservation Needs Inventory. Measures included are those which experience shows are likely to be used in meeting the types of con- ; servation problems inventor- > ied. This estimate takes into account only the direct costs of materials, labor, and rent of equipment. Some indirect costs such as loss or de- ferrment of income from the land due to the application of the conservation measures are not included. On the basis of the foregoing, a total private and public invest- Irvin ment of approximately $50 billion would be required if the conservation needs shown by the USDA Inventory are to be met. This is assuming a 20-year period of application of practices. About $33 billion would be required for conservation practices on cropland to solve problems caused by erosion, excess water, unfavorable soils or adverse climate. Approximately $10.5 billion would be needed for conservation measures for establishment and improvement of pastures and range. About $6 billion would be necessary for establishment or improvement of farm woodland and commercial forests. The rate at which the needed conservation practices will be applied depends largely upon three factors. First, the extent to which public assistance programs are available to reduce the share of the total cost that the landowner otherwise would be required to bear. Second, the extent to which landholders have a favorable balance of income over costs of operation to invest in conservation. Third, the extent to which technical assistance is available. The benefits to be derived from meeting the nation's conservation needs cannot be measured completely in monetary terms. Farmers benefit from the resulting continued productive capacity of their land. The entire nation benefits by maintaining basic soil and water resources. Conservation will mean that in th* long run as a nation we will pay less for our food and shelter. The $50 billion is a lot of money, and 20 years is a lot of time. However, these are the terms we are forced to think in when we consider the conservation needs of the nation. Here in Franklin County we are faced with our share of this expense. The sooner we proceed with the application of the needed practices the sooner we can begin to reap the rewards. f Mossey - Ferguson PLANTERS You can expect better growth and higher yields from all row cropa when you use one of these new Massey-Ferguson Planters. They are fast, versatile, and extremely accurate . . . they uniformly place every seed in the hopper—at the precise depth and spacing you want. The hitch frame is designed to allow the planter units to float and thus maintain a constant seeding depth on rough or uneven ground. Planting depth is controlled by the press- wheels. Both the economical MF39 and the big acreage MF78 are fully mounted through the 3-point hitch system for greater maneuverability and handling ease. When raised to full height, the planters become rigid for safe, high speed transport. All Massey-Ferguson Planters feature the proven high speed edge or flat-drop seed selection mechanism for accurate planting—on the flat or on beds — at speeds up to 4 and 5 m.p.h. A smooth-running gear bed assures gentle handling of the seed to prevent cracking and damage. Interchangeable hopper inserts, seed plates and herbicide, insecticide and fertilizer attachments are available to make each model a more economical, wide ranging, multi-crop investment. For speed AND accuracy AND money saving versatility . . . nothing compares with a MASSEY-FERGUSON PLANTER. OTTAWA FARM IMPLE.
