BEETS BRING GOOD RETURN (Kpn-tal In Thf Callfurnlnnt CHAPTER, Aug. 29.-John Frlc- |J nen, Shaffer rancher, has Just marketed the first crop of sunr beets from his ranch three miles northwest of here, obtaining a profitable crop. From hid trial plot of 2'/t acred he shipped G3'/j tons at 14.60 a ton to the Oxnard sugar factory. Thin Is an average of 2.1.7 tona per acre, but in one half-aero plot he obtained a yield of 19 Ions. In the middle west ten or a dozen tons would be a good yield. Mr. Krlcscn'H bccU also had a fine 15% per cent sugar content. At $4.60 » ton, his experimental plot brought $246.10, netting a good profit. The local rancher is well pleased with the crop and predicted todny that Kern county will some day have a Hugar factory, as all who Ifrow beets thin year were well paid. He said beets have an advantage over cotton in becoming mature early in the summer, thus cutting Irrigation coat*.

It la expected to take until ho middle of December to harvest This IB tho second year in which Mr. Mottler has operated In the ICoro river valley area. Lout year ho harvested approximately 150 acres. EIo haa found tho climate and soil of tho area to bo wall adapted to the raining (if potatoes. In connection with his operations ho haa been responsible for tho sinking of several flno wells which have proved a com' mcrclnl success. These wells have provided an adequate flow of water at comparatively shallow depths. Mr. Mottlor'0 activities havo re suited In tho establishment of potato growing a* a now Industry In tho Kcrnville area. In addition to tho land he haa under cultivation, many local farmers arc devoting consider able acreage to potatoes.

Probable Price Increase for Livestock Favors Finishing, However lly J, A. MrNAi;OIITON Minieir L<l An|«lM Union R r OS A NOBLES, Aug. 28.—With •*•* tho United States corn crop more than n billion bushels short of last year and far below normal nmcstic requirements, it seems eery certain that there will bo con- idorablo reduction (n all livestock ceding throughout the middle west during tho next season. Undoubt- dly this will mean fewer cattle to go Into corn belt fecdlols during the all season, somo reduction In lamb ceding and a serious deterrent to ho Increase In pork production that iad generally beon anticipated. Relatively high priced of all feed- stiiffw throughout tlio country prob- ibly will result In a slowing down of livestock feeding unless growers and fatteners are convinced that winter and spring fat stock prices vlll bo such I»H to assure somo opportunity of profit. On the other hand, most livestock 'eeders will say that they have never undo money in feeding low-priced 'occls for the simple reason that low >HCOH aro generally attended by xmntlful supplies and correspond- ngly low price* for finished stock. Higher Trices Indicated Tho best minds In the livestock Industry hero on tho Pacific coast seem to agree that the outlook is 'or higher prices on tho best grades of fed cattle In the winter and spring. Just at present, tho market or good to prime grades of fed steers soiling at $8.00 to 10.00 and an extreme top this month of J8.60. AM a mutter of Interest, tho Los Angeles market Is at this time drawing Hupplles of choice, fed steers rrom distant points, many coming liero from west Texas, Colorado and Vcbraska. An tho shortage of feeds becomes more acuto In tho middle west, It HOMTIH llknly that tho com- lotltlon between thn west coast and the middle west for highly finished steers may result In somo upplng of prices on such stock. After passing tho $12.00 mark at Los Angeles, the hog market the last, woek has worked somewhat .owor. It Is probable that tho next )0 days will witness heavier market- Ing of hogs In lino with last spring's Increased pig farrowing. However, tho shortage of corn may mean that hogp will bo marketed at lighter weights, which would to some extent offset In total tonnage tho Increased number of hogs marketed. Lamb Feeders Hesitant Reports from Colorado and Nebraska Indicate that lamb feeders aro hesitant about going Into lamb feed- Ing on the usual large scalo because of relatively high feed prices. On the other hand, lamb feeders made very satlsfactor profits last season and lamb fooders probably will wind up with pretty near normal numbers so far as tho western states aro concerned. While feed prices on the' Pacific coast aro admittedly high in comparison with recont years, there Is no shortage of optimism with west Coast feeders and It Is probable that dry lot feeding will bo practiced on a larger scale than over before. Probably imports of Argentine corn at Pacific coast ports will be larger than last year, duo to tho record e.orn yield in South America. Even after paying relatively high tariffs, this flood of corn may serve somewhat to stem rising feed prices and make livestock feeding more Inviting to stockmen.

The amendment was approved after a public hearing had beon held In Los Angeles on August 18 at the request of tho Los Angeles county milk control board sot up under tho Young milk control act. Evidence was presented at the hearing showing increased feed and labor costs with correspondingly higher prices being paid for butter and milk for manufacturing purposes, bringing a closer relationship to fluid milk prices. No opposition was presented at the hearing against tho proposed amendment. Tho plan affects producers located in the counties of Kern, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and Ban Bernardino. CACRAMENTO, Aug. 2f».—Color kJ and horses will be .highlights of what is expected to bo California's greatest state fair In Sacramento, September 5 to 14. Agricultural and county exhibitors will be greeted with tho greatest color array in tho history of the exposition. A canopy in California blue and gold 376 feet long and 70 feet wide has been hung in the huge agricultural pavilion. More than 20,000 yards of rose colored drapes, expensive silks and flame balcony facings have been used in aulllary decorations. Tho fabric Is part of the $10,000 decoration program for the build- Ing nnd is designed to harmonize with farm and other exhibits. Where to put more horses than ever havo been on tho grounds before is puzzling Secretary-Manager Charles W. Paint. There will be at least 1000 horses. In tho group will bo 224 trotters and more than 110 running horses to compete for high stakes in the big racing card. Thero will be more than 300 show horses, 100 polo ponies and 200 draft horses. A lively entry Is reported for the draft team pulling contest, a feature introduced at tho fair for the first time last year. Tho racing program has attracted an cnfry of more than 200.

Increased Citrus Receipts Offset Loss Suffered in Truck ( Crops (Associated Press Leased Wire.) WASHINGTON, Aug. 29.—Larger receipts from citrus fruits more than offset truck crop losses to send In como of California farmers from principal farm products to a four year high of $223,403,000 during tho six-months period from January through Juno. A department of agriculture re port, released today, gave compara live figures for tho corresponding periods in 1»3D, 1934 and 1933 as »213,153,000, $178,099,000 and $139, 452,000 respectively. In Juno, 1936, alone, California farmers grossed $51,314,000 for thel main crops. For the same month in 1935 they received $39,392,000, whil in 1934 their receipts totaled $41, 001,000 and in 1933, $31,950,000. Each ot eleven states In tho west ern region, California among them reported larger receipts from th marketing of principal farm prod ucU during the first half of 1936 Tho percentage Increase for tho re glon as a whole was 12 per cent; fo California—4 per cent.

KERN LEADS COTTON GINS 'hrec Districts in Kern Are Affected, Says Local Chemist By FRANK HORNKOHL 3ORON Is the element contained -* In common borax or washing iowder. It IB very Injurious to lant lite, In fact almost 200 times ,8. harmful as chloride, which It- elf IB two to three times as toxic s sulphate. Over one half, a part ier million is apt to cause trouble with many plants,, and a quantity n excess ot one part per million Is irotty sure to cause Injury to the more sensitive crops. On the other hand, minute amounts of boron seem o be essential to plants. Boron In irrigation water, unlike ho common alkali salts, is not con sldered to be a result of past de- >oslts, or tho presence of the element in land. Tho generally accepted theory Is that boron is carried in Irrigation waters and that the principal sources aro volcanic, such i hot springs and faults. Analysis of many samples of water rom Kern county wells and springs has disclosed three areas In which ho clement boron Is found In such water In amounts sufficient to be in urious to plants Irrigated by It. A map showing the various concentra- lons of boron In wells has been prepared by tho federal government. Symptoms Distinctive Tho characteristic symptoms of oron Injury, as displayed by lemon eaves, aro first a yellowing of tho margins and the tissue between •eins, followed- by dying of these parts and an early fall of leaves. Jrapes evidence Injury by constrlc Ion of leaf margins, cupping of eaves and breaking down of margins. Leaves are undersized. Thompson grapes are a little less suscep iblo to injury than oranges. Stone 'rults will stand more than grapes. In general, dying leaf margins, yellowish spots in leaves with thin red margins and early leaf fall aro suspicious symptoms. Garden crops are quite sensitive to this typo of njury, while grains, alfalfa and sugar beets are tolerant. Boron coming into the plant In the sap stream Is fixed In the leaves by chemical combination with some of he products of photosynthesis starches and sugars), thus clogging tho channels by which these products flow back to nourish the plant. Evidence supporting this conten tlon Is that chemical analysis of all larts of many affected plants shows 3oron to be present In quantity only n the leaves. Only Three Remedies For practical purposes, It is im possible to remove boron from Irrigation water. To precipitate the r ew parts per million of boron in irrigation water, excessive concentra tlons of reactive salts would bo necessary and might In themselves jrovo toxic. Tho only remedies available are substitution of another water, dilution by blending with better water or the cultivation of less sensitive crops. Tolerance of various cultivated plants to boron: Among the sensitive groups arc all the citrus fruits and other fruits as apricot, peach, cherry, persimmon. KaSota fig, apple, grape, pear, plum, elm, walnut, pecan,, navy bean and artichoke. Among the semi-tolerant groups are plants such as lima bean sweet potato, bell pepper, tomato, oats, mllo corn, wheat, barley, olive, radish, Plma and Acala cotton and pumpkin. In the tolerant group tho following plants are listed: Carrot, lettuce, cabbage, turnip, onion, broad bean, gladiolus, alfalfa, garden beet, sugar beet, palm, date palm, asparagus. Editor's Note: Next week Mr. Ilornkohl will write an article with reference to alkali salts In Kern county irrigation waters. Treatment by Gas Improves Walnuts The new cthyleno gas mcthdd for walnut processing offers an opportunity to local growers to improve tho quality of their crop, according to N. D. Hudson, assistant farm ad vlser. Growers In thn Arvln section are already using this method. By tho uso of the gun tho walnuts can bo harvested as quickly as«thoy mature, avoiding discoloration of -the kernels, which taken place when the nuts hang on the tree for any length of tlmo after reaching maturity. The gas does not ripen the fruit and will not prevent tho kernel from shrinking if the walnuts are. picked befom they aro mature. A circular describing the method of determining maturity of walnuts IH on file at tho farm adviser's office In liakcrsfleld and may be obtained free by Interested growers. (Atioelateit Pratt Leased Wire) W ASHINGTON, Aug. 29.—The census bureau reported today the cotton fields of California kept 69 of the state's 75 cotton gin- neries in operation during 1935, while the federal government was operating two others for experimental purposes. Kern county, with 21 of the 75 ginneries, led the other counties in number of plants, followed by Tulare with 15; Fresno, 14; Kings and Riverside, 5 each; Madera 7; Imperial and Merced 4 each. Nine ginneries were owned by individuals, three by partnerships, 61 by corporations and two by co-; operative associations. OFFER PAYMENTS IN WEED CONTROL Farmers Filing Work Sheets Eligible for Program of Conservation Farmers in Kern county who have filed work sheets under tho agricultural conservation program may file application for undertaking perennial weed control projects eligible for payments from the United States Department of Agriculture, according to Assistant Farm Adviser N. D. Hudson. 'Payment will be made for the adoption of perennial weed control practices by chemical treatment or periodic cultivation at the rates prescribed for such practices, respectively," said tho farm adviser. "Interested farmers should apply to this office or to M. B. Brame, secretary of the county agricultural conservation committee, for full Information as to tho requirements. "Payment for tho adoption of perennial weed control practices will bo limited to the control of alkali mallow, Austrian field cress, Canada thistle, hoary cress, Klamath weed, morning glory, nut grass and Russian knapweed. "The ground dealt with must be seriously Infested, according to tho requirement laid down by George E. Farrell, director of tho western division of tho agricultural adjustment administration. Tho maximum payment for perennial weed control by chemical treatment Is $10 per aero, and for periodic cultivation control, $5 per acre. "The total amount of such payments is limited by the soil building allowance which is not to exceed $1 per acre for each acre devoted to soil conserving and soil building processes on tho farm. In order to receive the high rate provided for weed control It will bo seen that this practice would only take place on a portion of tho soil conservation and soil building acreages," 3000 Birds Enter Fair Poultry Show (Associated 1'ress Leased Wire) SACRAMENTO. Aug. 29.—Tho 1930 poultry exhibition at the Call, fornia state fair which will continue from September B to 14, promises, said Harold J. .McCurry, director In charge of tho poultry division, to sur pass previous endeavors.' He said more than 3000 birds In addition to hundreds of rabbits have September Seeding Assure Good Growth Before Frost By N. D. HUDSON Assistant County Farm Adviser T HE month of September Is con» stdered the best time to plant such cover crops as Trieste mustard, purple and common Vetch and mell- lotus Indica. Cover crops planted during this period will make a considerable growth before cold weather • sots in and can therefore be plowed * under at an earlier date than If seed- . ing Is delayed Into October. This in particularly true with the legumes, which require a longer growing iea- son. Where water supply Is scant or expensive, later planting may be Justified so as to cut down on "the cost of Irrigation. Now that we are planting potatoes in Kern county as early as December and January, any cover crops grown on the soil before tho potatoes are planted would need to be 'out of the way early In December at the latest. Such crops should be planted at the earliest possible time. Deciduous orchards In Kern county begin to become active In February. Experiments indicate that the greatest demand for nitrogen during the early part of tho season with such orchards is at the time of bloom. Cover crops' should be turned under long enough in advance of bloom so that the material will be well broken. down, or else this operation should )o delayed until after the fruit has et. Early Planting Advantageous Legume cover crops planted in late all often do not make an appreciable rowth until spring. 'Iu theno cases, competition deve'.ops between the orchard trees and the cover crop for plant food. Thi's competition becomes more keen and may result tn a light setting of fruit if cover crops are turned under so us to bo actually rotting at the time the fruit s being formed. It Is usually con- sldered that a period of six weeks s required for tho rotting of, legume cover crops and liberation of the plant food which they contain for use by the commercial crop. Mustard will break down in approximately the same length of time or less. It Is not a legume but does contain a high percentage of nitrogen In its structure and rots quickly for that reason. Results from the use of cover crops followed by potatoes or cot- Lon, in Kern county, have been quite Favorable. It is clear from the experience of tho growers and the research work that has been done that In general our soils are deficient in humus as well as In nitrogen. Responses In the form of considerably larger yields have been secured by growers who have plowed under good cover crops and followed with cotton or potatoes. The value of cover crops in orchards is well established and has 1 been long understood. As n. result of a long-time scries of cover crop trials, tho authorities at tho University of Pennsylvania nmdo tho statement that if the person would tell them how much cover crop could be produced In an apple orchard, they could predict the condition of that orchard 10 years in advance; Danger Wltli Grapes In Kern county we have to be somewhat careful about overdoing legume -cover crops in the coses of early deciduous fruits and early grapes. These' crops are dellbeip been entered and tho requests for ex lilbltlon space have been unusually heavy. Tho Future Farmers will have a prominent place In tho fair. Seven schools have entered the FF egg laying contest and the prizes will go to tho 10 hens laying the most eggs during the 10-day fair. More than 600 Future Farmers have reserved accommodations at the camp the organization establishes al tho fair as the educational center foi Future Farmers. Malt Cereals Are $36,000,000 Crop ST. LOUIS. Aug. 29.—Missuor farmers brewers received $5,000,000 fron for products used -In the making of beer, according to Augus A. Busch, Jr., president of the Mis sourl Brewers' Association. The beer Industry as a whole gav farmers $36,000,000, Busch said. Mis sourl'H total was far higher than th average state, due to the fact tha St. Louis Is one of tho nation's out standing brewing and beer drinking centers. Thero aro 21 breweries in tho state, all working at capacity or near capacity.

A normally fertile soil contains too v" much nitrogen for this purpose. A • safe plan seems to bo to grow annual cover crops In every other row of tho orchard or vineyard. This plan has been followed for a number of years by a large orchard and vineyard corporation In the county, without any apparent delay in maturity, in this way thp vines and trees have been kept in a vigorous condition. The federal agricultural conservation program has focused the interest of many growers on the cover crop subject because of tho payments for growing soil conserving crops. Supplies of some of the less common varieties of cover crop need wore ejf- hausted this summer. Those who plan to grow particular varieties of such crops should secure their requirements in advance of planting time. »V circular or cover crop for Kern county, describing the desirable varieties, and giving cultural Information, Is available for free distribution at the farm advisor's office, 107 Court House, Bakersfleld.
