County Agent "Greenbugs are hurting) time of application on rice " wheat. IIEUI. . very ifiitjortSrit. Time of appli ; The above rriibr is not true cation gifatly influenced both ,1.. .1 .... ^ an —:„„ i y ie i d jjjg am'ou'nt of lodging (strength b'f stalk). So, they wonder if tlrfle of application is so fSr as we can determine. I do riot know how this story got started, but the number of calls would indicate "bad news travels fast." Gfeenbugs are one of the many species of aphids, or plant lice, Greenbugs attack wheat and other small grains, .they b'ffeh occur in numbers enough to damage wheat in Western states. Farmers often treat vVlieat fields with methyl para- thibn to prevent loss of plarit vigo'r and stand damage. The damage is done when wheat is small, less than six inches tall, and before tillering jind fast growth starts. We actually have greehbug in' wheat every year, but not in destructive numbers; Some -Wheat IB North Missis; sippi County is looking bad. Some is pale' yellow; with rnflst lower leaves br'bwd and de'Sfl. Sometimes the second and third leaves up -tlife hew. stalks are mottled, spotted and diseased. So far, it looks like some field have a bad infection of mildew on the leaves. Plant patholo- gis'ts are to visit the county and identify this infection before this week is over: In every case we have ex- attiined so far, the disease is rnuch worse where iiitf ogeri was applied in February or early March'. All fields fertilized A(- tef March 15 seem to be much more 'healthy and greener and almost free of this mildew dis- Tiiis is so true in our. two gerh" nitrogen timing tests oh wheat, bo'tli near Blytheville. so important on wheat. dy"j I don't think it will _j as imgdrtaiit on wheat, but f sure am sufpr'sed with this leaf disease on early fertilized fields. Also, I do not know if this kind of infection would happen again. Nor do I Know how niUch this feirly leaf destruction' will influence yields. Anyway* iii our test |il o t s, wli6re *e' applied nitrogen on February 9 arid March 1, the wheat is Heavily infected, looks pale green on top and lower leave's are dead. 6ri ail plots fertilized after March 15, the wheat looks good. Leaves are healthy green. Plants' are gfowiflg fapidly. I give you these details so you cart study the results of your nitfc-pi applications. We might learn something we had not known to look for before". Now, back to the Bugs. Pdul Boyer, survey entomologist with University of Arkansas, traveled all areas of Arkansas last week, ending April 8. He reported Monday morning that "all wfieat w'Ss past the stage for damage from greenbugs. That lady beetles were numer- oUs in all fields." Gordon Barnes, extension entomologist, said Monday ''YoU would not expect greenbug damage to wheat after it passes six inches tall,- especially if it had been fertilized with nitro- Tliis is good news. I'm glad our farmers are "uiiiversity " research men alert'arid want to protect this found last year that nitrogen big wheat crop ij they^can. _ Pesticide Safety Guidelines Listed By VASURE GIBSON Associate County Extension Agent North Mississippi County Many individuals are using pesticides at this time of year. What are pesticides? they are materials used to prevent, fle^ stfoy, repel or otherwise control the following: 1. insects (insecticides); 2. weeds (herbicides 3. rodents (rodeiiticides); 4. fungi (fungicides); 5. nematodes (neiriatocides). there are four keys to follow to pesticide safety: 1) Always read the label. The label tells many facts arid must be approved by the govefnmefit Before it can be used on the container. The label wiH cofr lain trade name, active iiigffr dienis, inert ingredients, dirtc- lions for use, warning arid fe- striotions. 2) Use pesticides correctly. First identify your problem; choose the recojiimetided iHa» terial; use the proper equipment; apply file correct amount apply only to target pest; follow all precautions and protect yoUf- self and others against exposure of the pesticide. 3) Store pesticide safely. Store in the original container; be sure labels are securely at taclied; ke - ep out of reach of children and pets; store pe~sti- cldes in locked area. 4) Dispose of Used peificide containers propcrry. Clean all equipment thoroughly; cfinsUlt (tie label fo'f special cKliiinl instructions; pour leftover pesticide in a hole dug in an isolated area; make sure leftover pesticide will not contaminate crop, water, pets, wildlife or domestic animals. Burn or bury empty bags or containers arid dvoid the smoke. Bury glass or metal containers after breaking or crushing to prevent febse. Pesticides enter the body By three methods: Oral (moUth), dermal (through skin), inhalation (breathing of v a p o r s or mist). Some safety rules to follow after using pesticides are Wash with soap and water soon after using pesticides; tvash clothes after Use of pesticides; never Bang them Up and use them the next day; remove clothing immediately tfiat has Been staked in pesticide's and wash thoroughly the exposed skin. Don't stroke or eat wsiile Us^ ing pesticides'. Don't allow food, such as caridy in the pocket to become contaminated. Wear protective equipment as directed on the label. Plan ahead so you will have plenty of time (A use cafe in handling pesticides.

Move §ny food stored in a feezing compartment of a freezer tti the storage c'om- lartment. flace dry ice' ori wards on top of the packages and do not open freezer more often than necessary. Don't handle dry ice with >are hands; it can cause burns. When using dry ice, the room should be Ventilate-d. If yoU can't get dry ice, try to locate i locker plant and move the :ood there in insulated boxes. For highest quality, keep 'odds' fr62en until they are de^ rested for uw.

The process of thawing afid refreezirig does not itself rriake fie fruits arid vegetable's Ufisafe iut thawed food sp'oil m'fife rapidly than fresh foods arid niay quickly become unsafe to eat if not refrigerated. Foods' are n6t likely to be fit for feffeezing if they Have reached temperatures of 40 dt peS F. after having passed through the slow temperature changes that occur in a freezer wfien opefaltidri Has stopped. Both fruits and vegetables niay be feffozeri if they have riot cpifipietely tKawed or if they have been ttiSwed for a short time and have been heild ift si HSiisehdld feffig'eratdr. The thawing arid refreezing will usually result in lowered quality arid loss df flavor. Refrozeti vegetables miy toughen aiid r'eff6zen fruits r>e- cfime soft arid m'Ushy.
