Corn Blight Continued from Page 1 large on the plant. Yet, It Is indistinguishable from Race o without the aid of a microscope. - AIR SURVEILLANCE Detection of the blight has not been left to individual farmers, however. After blight withered 15 percent of the nation's corn crop last year, including a small percentage in Kossuth County, an effort has been undertaken nationally to monitor the fungus. Teams from the Department of Agriculture, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Air Force are trying to spot it by aerial infra-red photography. RB51-F planes began flying June 15 and will fly until sept. 21 at 60,000 feet taking photographs of 15- mile wide areas. They hope to detect other diseases In addition to the blight. In theory, the diseased plants generate more heat and should be detectable - but whether this works out In practice won't be known until the season is over. By that time, the damage could be extensive. So testing is also being conducted by men on the ground in the form of 210 test plots in the cornbelt states, three of which are In Kossuth Co. - ASCS TESTING The ASCS office in Algona is taking part in these tests. They set up three test areas to check against the results of the aerial tests. The areas, all one mile wide (north-south) and eight miles long (east-west), are located 14 miles apart just east of Highway 169. *Segment No. 133 is 1-mile north and 1/2 mile east of Ban- Early Advance, To Print On Friday I Newt correspondents art reminded of the Monday holiday schedule of the Algeria newi* papers nexf week.

ASCS Director Curtis Haahr said copies of the aerial photographs will be furnished to his office and the Extension office. They mav then be compared to ground result from laboratory tests to determine the accuracy of the infra-red technique. In a June 24 release, Dean Barnes, Area Extension Director from Spencer, said: "There is no southern corn leaf blight to this date in Northwest Iowa." However, the spore reproduction of the most harmful kind of blight takes place quickly in wet or humid summer weather. On the other hand dry, hot weather could stifle its growth, however, and save the corn crop. When farmers aren't watching weather reports, they'll be checking for undesirable developments such as army wormi and corn borers.
