KANAWHA--First of its kind in the mid\vest, a new chemical seed dusting machine is being installed in the seed and-service building of' fhe Northern Iowa experiment association station at Kanawha, .This machine, which will be ready by March 10, will be used to .treat seed grains to farmers around Kanawha and at the same time to demonstrate the practicability of such machines to grain dealers and seed companies. Iowa State college specialists, who encouraged the purchase of the machine by the association, describe the seed treating machine as "foolproof." The seed dusting apparatus features an automatic weighing device designed lo mix dust and seed in proper, unvarying proportions. Baffle boards in the chute through which the grain and chemical dust fall complete the mixing process. Being Installed. A new commercial seed cleaning machine is being installed along with the seed treatment machine. The two can be operated together so that cleaned seed flows into the treating hopper. Between -75 and 100 bushels of seed grain can be CARL SHEIMO AUCTIONEER Farm Sales a Specialty I'll. 13 or G002, Fcrlile-, Iowa COLBY'S MOSS PEAT Is Unexcelled for Chick Litter Poultry Litter Stable Litter Peat Insulation Greenhouse Peat Lawn Dressing Garden Peat Fertilizers Colby's Moss Peat Litter is produced by American later for the American Poultry Raiser.

"It is hoped," said Dr. R: H. Porter, extension plant pathologist at Iowa State college, "thai grain dealers and seed companies throughout the stale wil 1 install similar equipment. "Most farmers can have their seed treated and cleaned more cheaply at a commercial plant than they can buy needed equipment and clean and treat i themselves." Controls Smut. Treating seed grain with chemical dust controls smut in pats, covered smut and stripe in New Hybrid Popcorn Is Developed lojap Will Be Distributed in Small Trial Packets This Spring. lojap, a new hybrid popcorn des'eloped from inbred strains of Japanese Hulless, will be distributed in small trial packets for the first time this spring, announces Prof. J. C. Eldredge of the Iowa agricultural experiment station at Ames. · The new- hybrid is outyielding Japanese Hulless by 15 to 20 pet- cent in the experimental plots and is out-popping it by 20 to 25 per cent. Starting in 1928 with 50 selected ears of Japanese Hulless, Prof. Eldredge, after intensive popping and eating and yielding tests, developed 40 promising inbred lines. lojap is the combination of the best 3 of these 40 lines--a three-way cross. About 40 pounds of the new seed are to be distributed in packets sufficient to plant 100 or more hills. A similar quantity of Japanese Hulless will be included in each packet for purposes of comparison. Those interested in trying out lojap, should address their requests to Joe L. Robinson, Iowa Experiment association, Iowa State college, Ames, inclosing 25 cents to cover costs of packing and mailing. barley, stinking smut in wheat, and seedling blight in most varieties of small grain. It also protects sugar beet seed. Last year 2G.OOO pounds of beet seed fiom the American Crystal Sugar company oE Mason City v ere treated at the Kanawha station. This year it is believed that all of the seed distributed by the Mason City firm will be treated with the new equipment. Dr. I. E. Melhus, head of the Iowa State college botany department; Dr. Charles S. Keddy, and Dr. W. F. Buckholtz, research botanists, and D. V. Layton, extension plant pathologist, are helping supervise installation of the seed treatment equipment at Kanawha.
