FRIDAY, OCT. t, 1WT BLTIKCTILLB (AMU COOMB* PAGE MINI FARM WEWB "» REVIEW White Grubs May Pose Serious Threat to Soil FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — White*. I grubs—already causing scattered . I damage over Arkansas—may become |B serious pest as the humus content the state's soils Is gradually | uilt up. f That's the opinion of a ^University Arkansas scientist, following an .xhaustivc study of the white grub u-oblem during the past few years, [He Is Dr. Floyd D. Miner, associate I entomologist with the Agricultural | Experiment Station. Several years ago. £>r. Miner be- Igaii a thorough study of the We I history of the prairie white grub I one of the most common species in I Arkansas. Results of the study, just [completed, indicate vvtfere the grub | problem may become seVrre. a"r! hat- control measures should be I most effective. Increase of yierma- I ncnt pastures may contribute to I the problem, he said. Dr. Miner found that white grub I adults feed on a wide variety of 1 plants. especially low-growing I weeds. Infestations are thus closely I related to idle land or weedy pas- I tures. he points out. Furthermore, 1 the adults prefer lo lay their eggs I in a soil with a dense turf or other (soil cover, rather than bare soil. I The fact that white grubs to date [have not caused much damage to 1 Arkansas pastures is probably due H.D. CLUB MEMOS ** Mrs. Gertrude B.

Competition from Other Counties Did you know that there were 17 4-H entries In the fair and that 60 of these were from 4-Hers in Mississippi County and the others came from Crittenden County and Salem.

Cooperation Thfi home demonstration clubs in to the predominance of clay soils North Mississippi County recently I that are sticky when wet and bake I hard in hot. 'dry weather. Such I tolls 'limit .grub movement and ac- 1 tivity. Dr. Miner also found that ou::p Larvae apparently depend for | their food on fungi-growing on de- Vying organic matter in the soil. fmeEtations are, therefore, more I serious on soils with high organic | matter content. In the northern states, where I white grubs have long been a ma- I jor pest, control is accomplished by 1 means of crop rotations, carefully 1 worked out to take advantage of vulnerable stages in the insect's l-three-life cycle, according to Dr. Miner. Results of his study show I that control by crop rotation would 1 not be possible in Arkansas. Here, I the typical cycle lasts for only two ycnrsi with approximately enual 1 numbers of mature larvae each year, so that damage is liable to I occur annually. Also, It would not be feasible to control grubs by tak- 1 ing advantage of the adult's feeding habits, since they feed on an u:i- U'.ua'ly wide range of plants, most ..... donated 74 surprise gifts to be sold at the Livestock Show at Little Rock.
