COR WITH, IOWA High Grade Sweet Corn Now Ready Ames -- Developed in an attempt to grow a high quality early hybrid with a bigger ear, an improved form of logold Early golden sweet corn hybrid is being released for planting this year by the vegetable crops subsection' of the agricultural experiment station of Iowa State college. Included,-among otKer sweet corn hybrids suggested by E. S. Haber, Iowa State college horticulturist, for spring planting in Iowa is Golden Country Gentlemen, a. late yellow corn. Haber estimates its cutting percentage at 40 to 45 per cent of the total car, compared to 35 or 36 per cent for some other varieties. logreen 16, -'a narrow - grain type of Evergreen hybrid, has been tried commercially by Iowa PHIL R.

'New war food goals call for a 68,000,000 acre planting of wheat next year, compared with J943's toial of 54,159,000 acres," says the statement. "The bulk of this increase will be accounted for by middlewestern farms. "But increased acres alone, will not insure the'wheat-produc- fion gain so vitally needecT at present. The best farming methods must be employed to-obtam more .bushels per acre. That is why the matter of fertilizer is so important. Carefully recorded tests have shown that increases of 8 to 10 bushels per acre have resulted from the use of "fertilizer on midwestern farms."

Many Cull Hens Going Out and More Need to Midwestern poultry flock owners are now culling their flocks heavily, reports Ralph Baker, Iowa State college extension poultry marketing specialist. During October, November and December, poultry markets received about 25'per cent more old hells than during the same months a year earlier. Culling must continue^ Baker states. On Dec. 1, 1943, Iowa had 1,700,000 more hens than on Dec. 1, 1942. Overcrowding, resulting in high death losses and fewer eggs per hen, is more'of a problem now than at any 1 other time since the - outbreak of war and expansion of the" poultry raising industry. Death of hens arid lowered production due to overcrowding, is money · wasted. Each hen t h a t dies represents many pounds of- feed and 4 or 5 pounds of meat lost. Leghorn · hens need 3. square feet or more of floor space, arid general purpose breeds require 3M square feet. They can get this amount of space if the owner will ma ket all small, underdeveloped pullets, hens with Jight eyes and those that-are now molting. - The co-operation of every homemaker in saving fat either for further use in the kitchen or for the production of munitions--is needed to collect 3 hundred million pounds of fat. That is the goal which has been set for the coming year. Supplements Not Needed for Finish Ames--Livestock feeders can place good to choice beef cattle on the market at'the end of a regular feeding period even without .using those badly needed and hard to get protein supplements, asserts C. C. Culbertson ot the animal husbandry staff of Iowa State college. Cattle fed on good quality'born and legume hay can show plenty of finish at market time to qualify for good to tow choice cattle. Tests at Iowa State college show that a ration containing silage for the most of the roughage should include a protein supplement . · Cattle fed a ration not including protein supplements will probably not qualify for top grades, for they do not have the extra finish that goes with prime cattle." In normal times a differential of from ?0c to SI .is paid for top grade cattle, but today no such marked gradient exists, thus making low supplement feeding profitable. In starting a strawberry bed, use only strong, deep-rooted plants from last year's runners for spring planting. Such plants have straw-colored, rather fleshy roots, in contrast" to the black, wiry roots of older plants. Strawberry plants may be dug from the home garden patch if the plants are healthy.
