Iowa State college agricultural engineering specialists supervised the demonstration. Designed to destroy the weeds without stirring the soil, the flame cultivator burned the weeds with vaporized propane gas forced from several jets attached to the rear of the outfit. Used properly, officials said, the machine kills all weeds around'the corn and makes further cultivation unnecessary. In the soil fertility discussions, H. R. Meldrum, extension agronomist at Iowa State college, pointed out that good soil management, including crop rotation, liming, manuring, and the use of commercial fertilizer is paying dividends on the farm. Phosphorus was the outstanding treatment on all crops, said Meldrum, with the smaller amount being about as effective as the larger amount, eycept on the legume hay. Potash alone had little effect on any of the crops, but when used with phosphorus, the corn crop showed a good response. Nitrogen gave the greatest response on oats, farmers were told. ******** ****** ****** FERTILIZING PAYS—Unfertilized check iV.ots of oats failed to produce the heavy growth shown in fertilized plot at left of picture, visitors attending the Howard County Farm Field day near Cresco, learned Friday.
