New Twine Will Meet War Needs Des Moines--Wartime binder twine of a type believed suitable for handling Iowa crops is being · turned out by manufacturers to meet 1944 needs, A. J. Loveland' chairman of the Iowa US^A war board, announced here. Need for the new twine development arose last yew-when the war production board prohibited use of both sisal and cotton in manufacture o£ binder twine. The new twine is being made under a WPB standard of 12* per cent jute fiber and 87% per cent hene- quen.-' . , . Rigid field tests have been · made of the henequen-jute twine by WPB in co-operation with the department of agriculture. Last fall it was used on fields of Iowa corn where bundles were unusually heavy. It tied successfully .and did not break, when the bundles were bandied. Rice growers of Louisiana -tested it and accepted it as satisfactory. Development came too late to permit-"testing on midwestern small grain last year, but its makers believe that if it handles · heavy corn and rice satisfactorily, it should do the job on wheat barley, oats and other crops harvested with a binder. Knotter mechanism on binders should be in the best possible condition and should be properly adjusted for use of the twine, Loveland said. ; "Tests so far were made under normal fartri conditions, using the standard binder without adjustments, indicating that with x ordinary care all binders can vise this new wartime twine," concluded Loveland. legumes tends to offset this condition. When seeded with alfalfa in wilt infested areas, brome- grass tends to replace the legume as it dies out. When seeded with a legume and pastured, bromegrass will Better Bromegrass Varieties Promised Three new bromegrass varieties that when seeded with a legume yield up to 4 tons of good quality hay and can carry up to one and a half animal units per acre, have been- made available to a limited number of seed producers this year, ' According to Dr. C. P. Wilsie of the agricultural experiment station at Iowa State college, these new varieties, Lincoln, Fisher and Achenbach, have proved superior to standard strains in co-operative projects conducted at the Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas experiment stations; Particularly adapted to the area of origination, these brome- grass varieties are recommended to be sown with alfalfa for best results. Bromegrass tends to become sodbound, due to exhaustion of soil nitrogen, and the nitrogen made available by the LPHERD'S "^ WALLPAPER 15 WE BUY/..
