Dandelion Seed Market Is Relatively Uncompetitive By PHILIP CLARKE The London Sund«y Timet MINNEAPOLIS -- Gardeners who spend long hours rooting out dandelions may have to brace themselves for this, but a firm here sells dandelion seeds for 25 cents a packet. These seeds, the packet informs us, yield the improved, thick-leaf sort of dandelion, are to be sown in early spring and are excellent for home and market gardens alike. Now the international dandelion seed market is not particularly tough, competitive, large, volatile or important. Come to that, it is pretty nearly nonexistent. But this does not stop Northrup King, the big U. S. seed company which has its headquarters here. Apparently communities of Italian and Sicilian extraction prize dandelion leaves for salads, the flowers for wine and the tap roots, ground like chicory, for coffee. It is part of the company's philosophy of creative seedman- ship. Established in the upper Mid-West farm belt, it spends a lot of money each year on research and development aimed at producing seeds which in turn will produce the type, shape and quality of plant demanded by a highly profit-conscious, laborsaving, technological society. Thus Northrup King's carrot seed will grow carrots with round rather than pointed ends so they don't poke through the polyethene packets in the supermarkets. Then there are seeds which have labor-saving productivity built into them. Single seed beetroot, for example, which enables precision planting and eliminates the need to thin out. A hybrid corn which has a cob which is hard enough to break when being harvested mechanically. For canners there is another variety which produces white silky threads on the ear rather than the usual brownish ones. These often get into the can, and housewives complain, bitterly because they think they have found a human hair. "We can just about do anything with seeds we want to," ; says Dr. Ernest Renke, the company's research coordinator. Much of the effort has been directed at producing high-yielding, consistently performing hy-- brid corns, especially those which help to fatten pigs twice or three times as the. 1 old varieties. The importance of this to Northrup King is clear, when you consider that the mid-, west is a great place for growing, as they put it, "hogs on the cob." After years of research the company is guarding its varieties carefully. In a deep vault under the building, 1,000 five- gallon cans are full of the male, and female lines of the company's new hybrid corns. "In the event of a national disaster," they say, "we would be able to start again." CAPE TOWN -- An old slave town is being reconstructed for tourists.
