Diversion Terrace Construction Needed "The recent 11 inch snowfall in this area could again point out the need for diversion terraces to protect building areas from runoff water," according to Jim Barnes, U S. Soil Conservation Service in Waukon. "Many of the farmsteads in the county are located at or near the base of slopes that send a lot of water through the farmstead areas. Much of this could be prevented by constructing a diversion terrace immediately above the buildings to lead the water away from the buildings and discharge it safely in a grassed waterway." One farmer who has recently overcome this problem is Frank Thies who lives north of Rossville. The barnyard on the Thies farm is located in a natural draw below a steep area. Several times a year, runoff water would go through the lots, frequently taking out fences. In 1959. Thies called on U. S. Soil Conservation Service technicians to design and lay out a diversion to reduce the problem. The planned design called for a diversion 1000 feet long which would outlet in a livestock water pond to be constructed. The combination of the two practices provided the Thies farm with several benefits. Water was prevented from running through the barnyard, water piped through the earth fill in the pond to a tank below could be used by livestock, and the stored water provides the Thies family with a recreation area as well as a source of water for fire protection. Diversions can also be used to protect cropland below steep bluffs from excessive runoff and erosion. Another use is to divert water from raw. active gullies into safe outlets to prevent further eating back of the gully. Cost snaring is available through ACP for diversion construction and the diversions can be constructed with earthmoving equipment or with tractor and plow. In most cases, if the diversion is to be located in cropland, it can be farmed so that no land need to be taken out of production. CUT DOWN CROP DISEASE LOSSES IN 61 You can plan now to take some steps before and during the growing season to reduce disease losses in crops. Malcolm ShurtlefT, plant pathologist at Iowa State University, says the first thing to do is plant top- quality seed of disease-resistant varieties. Use varieties adapted to your area. Use certified seed or transplants when available. Plant more than one variety per crop where it's practical. Seed-rotting and damping-off fungi can get a foothold through cracks in damaged seed—so don't use it, Shurtleff says. Its good insurance to clean and treat all oats, wheat, barley, flax, vegetable and flower seed before planting, Shurtleff points out. You won't need to treat soybean seed or forage legumes, seed is of poor quality Try to avoid OK and deep cultivation corn, sorghum anj crops, Shurtleff advise wounds allow easy cij gnnlsms that produte and stalk rots.

By staying out you won't spread bacterial and fungus diseases. The best single rule to follow to cut down plant diseases this year, Shurtleff adds, is to follow all good farming practices.
