EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 12 · 1937 I i 1 i ;. i !·] it * ' Sl;i i.' i i 1! } M FARM EXPERIMENT OFFICERS AT KANAWHA RE-ELECTED NEW BUILDING IS SEEN BY 300 Benefits to Land Throug] ' · .Sugar Beets Pointed Out by Moore. . V ; KANAWHA--Some 300 stock holders of the Northern lowa-ag ricultural experiment association gathered Thursday for the annua meeting, elected officers, inspected new equipment and made plan for the year. Of special interes was the inspection of the nev, building erected for seed cleaning and treatment and emiipmen which has been installed in it. Benefits to land through thi raising of sugar beets wa pointed out by Earl C. Moore manager of the American Crysta Sugar company:at Mason City. Officers were re-elected. They are Wallace Darrali, president; F M. Knudson,' secretary, Neil Hanson, .treasurer and directors, E . P Cook of Kanawha, E. O. Eliason of Kanawha, Chris Jacobson o Brilt, Jens Jensen of Britt, Clarence F. Johnson of Kanawha, M T. Love of Garner, Harry Poundstone of Clarion, W. P. Tyrrell o Belmond and Darrah. Sold .to Stockholders. It was reported that during tht ;year 934 bushels of hibrid seed corn had been'produced and sole to 149 stockholders and 365 bushels of- velvet barley · had been grown and supplied. Many Iowa , State college plant 'pathologists agronomists and agricultural en 'giheers from Ames attended. Sessions were held in the morning, a -noon-and in the afternoon, 'covering a variety of special subjects ; considered at the station. "I dp not know p£ another industry in Iowa where the peopli ·as a whole know so little abou it as the beet sugar industry," de, clared Mr. Moore. "They do not know of the agricultural advantage in having an industry of this kind or of its outstanding possibilities. They have been told that beet sugar is an inferior sugar and that beets .hurt the ground and many people believe it They have been told that the sugar beet is a depleting crop and many people believe this, but not the farmer who has grown sugar beets. Beneficial to Land. "When you can divide a field and plant one half to beets and ;one half to a soil building crop and'then the next year plant the whole field to corn or;grain and get a bigger yield from the beet land than you do .from the other land, it does not make sense when you class the beet as a depleting crop--no matter who says so. Every beet grower has had this experience. "We are told that perhaps the .residual effect of the 125 pounds of fertilizer spread over an acre of, land when the beets are grown will produce from 10 to 15 bushels more corn or 25 bushels more stnal! grain but when you fertilize tht corn as we have done the past year and you still get a 10 bushel increase from the beet land, why that argument is knocked cockeyed. Beets Grown Deep. "When you plant sugar beets you are planting a sub'soiler-- it grows deep--down 5 to 6 feet When you have a perfect stand you have 24,000 or 28,000 of these subsoilers working on every acre Then when you harvest the beets, it breaks off about a foot from the surface, from the size of a lead pencil to the size of a half dollar is left in the ground to become decayed vegetable matter. "What is manure but decayed vegetable matter? It is estimated that from 1% to 2% tons of beet" roots are left in. the ground, placed better than the hands of man could place any manure and right down where the next crop will find available plant food. Europe found out many years ago that the sugar beet built up the land and increased crop production, and we have found out the sugar beet was soil depleting and any former growing beets should be penalized for doing it. · "Our contract this year is about 60c higher than last year--15% beet and 4%c sugar will pay §6.00 for beets. A bill has been introduced in congress covering the wishes of the president, that an excise tax of 75 cents per 100 pounds be placed on sugar arid the Iowa farmer with 288 pounds of sugar extraction, at 75 cents an hundred pounds, will receive about 51.84 per ton from the government. With the sugar content and price as mentioned, the 1937 crop would bring around $7.84 for beets. You know this would be a profitable crop to raise and . you had belter get your contract in early.
