Kebruary :i. 1975 - INC, BRUM BRAND' ttfUOMER State conducts weed control contest HOISK- Idaho farmers will have ;m opportunity lo earn statewide recognition while al Ihi 1 siinii 1 lime increasing crop yields and reducing costs. Add In ibis such extra in- dui-einenU as an a'l-expenses- paid; overnight stay in Boise, a special banquet hosted by linvernor Cecil D. Andrus and a choice seal al a Boise Stale I'liiversily football game and il miK'S apparent why the (inventor's second annual "Weed Control Program" is expected to attract considerable attention among agricultural people. Tlic program this year is tieing expanded lo make all formers eligible In participate and I he number of winners will be inn'rased from four In six. According lo Wilson Kellogg, Itoise. director of (he state agriculluri! department, any Mali" farm operator-except Hie lour winners of last year's program--is eligible. Candidates nuisl live and have their principal operation in Idahn and may be individual farmers, renters at share croppers, KHlngU announced. "Father and son operations are also eligible, since there is mi age limit this year." Kellogg added. The agriculluri! official explained that while a hired man is nnt eligible, the landowner may enter and use both his nwn name and Ibal of the hired man. A .minimum of 411 acres is required and farmers will hr I'niiipi-lni)! in their n i n districts Deadline tor MibinilliiiK in tries will lie April ! anil forms lor entering may lie nhlained from county agents. Once tilled mil. they nuisl he submitted lo Ihe Stale Weed Coordinator, c-o Idaho Department of Agriculture. . Unx 7!)tl, Boise, mill. The stale agency is a cosponsor of the program, as is the 1'iiiver.sity til Idahu s agriculture extension service anil the Idaho Weed Control Association. The latter will furnish judges for Ihe contest and the cnunly agents of the extension service will do much of the leg work in promoting and encuiiraging participation. KiKjene Uoss. Boise, weed coordinator for the slate agriculture department, described the procedure for selecting winners in Ihe contest. ".lodges will he selected from Ihe districts, who will make I wo visilations of the contestants' farms. Kmphasis will he on an iiral description of Ihe farm opcratitm and of weed control efforts. The three judges will make a visual cheek of Ihe operation, accompanied by the farm operator and Ihe county agfnl." Unss explained. "CtmiUies may have as many 1'iilnes as lliev choose.

A s s i s l a n l Administration budget reduces farm programs WASHINGTON il'I'h President Kurd's new budget today called for cutbacks in a lung list of farm and rural programs and predicted farm price uppun spending in the year starling July I would drop In tlie Invest level in 25 years. Kurd said lie will Iry lo trim [arm spending even further \vith" l e g i s l a t i o n e l i m i n a t i n g provisions that grain and cotton growers who suffer weather disasters will collect about S592 million lliis fiscal year and an estimated 5251 million in the year stalling .Inly I In place ot the disaster payments linked to the crop price supporl program, the .administration wants an ex[landed Federal Crop Insurance program with farmers paying most nf the cost through premiums, the budget said. The budget showed total planned Agriculture Department spending in l!ie 1970 fiscal year beginning July 1 al SD.7 iiillmn. up more than S'JUO million from the current fiscal year The increase, however, was a bookkeeping change produced because nf a scheduled 52 billion decline in sales of tiovernment loan paper to private investors. Il" Ibe 52 billion change is ignored, actual government program operations would be reduced SI 1 billion. Heal spending nil some programs was scheduled lo increase. A boost of S-12 million lo a new total of S51I2 million w as planned fur agricultural research, mainly to increase farm p r o d u c t i v i t y : and for allied items such as extension work and grants Ui slate ex- perimenl stations Expenses for meal and poultry inspection were also up $'. million. But far most federal farm programs, the trend was down. The budget predicted direct payments to farmers, which hit nearly Si billion in fiscal li)7:i. would drop from SI billion In S-trn million in the year starling Julj 1 All price supporl spending, including direct payments, was expected to drop in fiscal 197G lo S3:!4 million - lowest since 1951 - because high market prices have reduced Ihe need for crop supporl. Turd also proposed cuts in: -- Conservation subsidies, which would lie eliminated entirely al an estimated saving of SI'J'J million although Congress is virtually certain to keep them alive. - liural housing loans and grants thai would total S2.N2 billion in fiscal I'JTli. down SI20 million. - Rural development loans ,ii\(I grants thai would total SI Ofii'billuin. down 51211 million. - Soil conservation operations including waleishcd development would get Stll'J million, a drop ul St~ million.

Virtually , a"l) '.t!Jc v 'Jftn5[uiB pnigrams in Hie litiilgef tt'ere insured or guaranteed credit using p r i v a t e rather than li'ileral limits. IHidgel comparisons wilh the current year were clouded by the fact that Kurd's estimates of liseal l!75 mil lay* assume Cnngress will agree to pending proposals lo cancel nearly S22K million in existing ap- prnpriatinns fur programs including conservation payments ami rural development and forestry grants. So far. Congress has shown no interest in accepting those proposals and linal fiscal 197:, spending - as a result - could be abnvc Kurd's projected figures. Secretary Clayton Veulter say.s lie made Ihnse points in long talks wilh Japanese farm, trade and government officials in Tokvii during a Iwo-wcek Asian lour wiiii-li ended l;isl weekend. if Veuller got any firm word ol Japanese plans, he didn't reveal il al a briefing for newsmen recently. Hut Veulter made i! clear Ihe U.S. wanls to build up a close and continuing relation between its lood producers and Japanese con- sinners while the U..S. furnishes a market for Japan's industrial producls "Japan will be a fond ini- purler, perhaps forever. That means Iheir economy will lulled in a:i economy like ours." Yi'iiltiT said. "We think that is a healthy siliiiilinn. Mild Japan imuhl In think uf farms in Hie U.S. as part ol Iheir own production process." he addi-il.

"WluMi weeds are not con- Irolleil. they can result in as much as nearly a 1WI per cent loss ol a grazing area or row crop. It's been estimated that weeds could average out lo a IG per cent cost iactor on cultivated lands. In these times, ·.u- nist can't attord not to rnnlrol weeds." Kellogg stated. Ki-ciignizinf!
