Norffi Kossuth Beet Growers File For Share of $200,000 Sugar beet growers in the Led yard. and Lakota areas have begun filing for their share o north Iowa's sugar beet acreage expected to be worth mor4 than $200,000 In Kossuth, Winnebago Hancock and Cerro Gordo coun ties this fall, Among those already signet Op are Elmer Kngelbarts, Alfred Lloyd and Melvin Busch of Ledyard,-Earl Haas of Lakota and Louie Miller, president of the Mason City district Beet Growers Association. Miller lives jusl across the Minnesota line, bul grows 250 acres of beets in Iowa Other Kossuth County farmers still have time to request allotments for the limited acreage still remaining. These growers find that sugar beets fit well in their crop rota tion plans and are the most profitable of all crops in replacing acreage in the government corn program. Beets are even more attractive now that the corn support price has been lowered 18 cents to $1.40 a bushel. "Beets give me a larger cash return than corn does, twice as much as soy beans," says Engelbarts. A good crop can return $100 or more an acre in clear profit, growers agree. Progress in mechanical thinning is continuing to reduce labor requirements in the beet fields. For those who wish to postpone investing $500 or more In a used harvester, a number of farmers are available for custom harvesting. Feeders of livestock find that beet tops left after harvest add as much weight as corn or grain. Farmers also report they get up to 35 extra bushels of corn per acre on ground that the year previous grew sugar beets. Like sugar beets,. this corn seems to 6—Algona (la.)
