4B--June 27, 1976 Sunday Gazette-Mail -Charleston, Welt Virginia Protein Eyed In Soybean Production AMES, Iowa (AP) - While delegates from 50 nations prepare to discuss global nutrition problems at the World Food Conference here, Iowa State University researchers and commercial seed geneticists continue efforts to increase protein production through higher soybean yields. Many of the. approximately 1,000 representatives to the five-day conference that begins Monday fear that expanding world population will deplete existing food stockpiles and outstrip food production. But recently developed techniques of soybean hybridization and fertilization may ultimately double the world's soybean output, experts believe. « * * SOYBEANS HAVE BEEN a source of protein for many years, but recently their importance has been growing. In the United States soybeans have been used mostly for animal feeds, but elsewhere they are ground and used in bread and other foods. providing a powerful boost in nutrition to marginal diets. ISU and Allied Chemical Corp. have each applied for patents on a revolutionary method of plant fertilization. "Very significant yield increases have resulted" from the foliar method - applying fertilizer directly to the leaves late in the growing cycle rather than near the seed or roots early in the season -- according to ISU's Dr. John Han way. Allied Chemical spokesmen note that company received a patent for a type of foliar application in 1971, and the company assisted ISU in its early stages of research. Hanway says fojiar fertilization can boost production 30 to 60 per cent. Allied spokesman believe actual increases may be more modest Agriculture Secretary Karl L. lint; has been enthusiastic: "If there were only a one-or two-bushel increase, that would be a significant advancement," Butz said. "FOR TOO LONG soybean yields hau Firecracker "200" Sale been at a plateau, and for too long w haven't had the yield boosts (for soy beans) like we have seen with hybri corn." Pfizer Inc. believes its new technique hybridization could boost soybean prodm lion 20 to .')0 per cent. "The major economic and social contr hiilioti of hybrid seed corn will hopefull he duplicated with the soybean -- wher I'liijcr genetics last year reported a signi, icant advance." said company Presiden Gerald Laubach. ///·'i Busting At The Seams With Merchandise!
