North Kossuth Beet Growers F//e For Share of $200,000 Sugar beet growers in the Lcd- yard and Lakota areas liave begun filing for their share of north Iowa's sugar beet acreage, expected to be worth more than $200.000 in Kossuth, Winnebago, .Hancock and Cerro Gordo counties this fall. Among those already signed up are Elmer Engelbarts, 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 just across the Minnesota line, but 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 rotation 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 fare better during hot and dry summer months. Anyone wishing to plant beets this spring may contact V. P. Christensen, Blue Earth, Minn., sugar company fieldman. Also, farmers mentioned above will be glad to advise how to secure request torms. License To Wed A wedding license was issued here Feb. 16 to Franklin J.
