Some studies were carried on in Arkansas a few years ago by Professor Cooper. The results of the work, in different locations have been cnnllicting and inconclusive, showing apparently beneficial effects in some cases, no influence in others, ajid apparently harmful,effects in still others. In the cooperative project now getting underway, radioactive materials will be used in greenhouse and field experiments on a variety of crops grown on different soil types. Three-fold objective is to determine the effect of the radioactive materials on growth, maturity, composition, and yield of crops; on the germination of seeds and vigor of seedlings; and and on the number and activity of soil bacteria and other micro-organisms. omists point out, Tims the early Spring grazing afforded by the le- Bumes .will be eliminated, There are conflicting reports on the use nf 2.4-D on small grains nnrt' com, partially because varieties differ in their reaction to the herbicide. These crops are only relatively resistant, and applying the chemical when the plant is making lap- id growth will very likely rosull In damage. The aBronomists advise that 2,4-p should never be used on small grains if a legume has been overscertcd on the grain, and should not be applied between the shooting and heading stage of growth Applying Ihe 2,4-D to the soil immediately . following planting, or "pro-emergence treatment," appeals a promising way or controlling weeds in corn, although too large an application will be harmful.
