Scab Fungus Found In Spring Wheat In Ogle County OREGON - Several fields of spring wheat in the Ogle County area are infected with one of the fungus scabs, according to Stan Eden,'Ogle County Extension adviser. - - :': t "If the scab is severe we, would expect very little value for grain and the crop would need to be salvaged for silage, 1 / Eden said. Winter wheat does not appear to be greatly affected, he added. • " According to Dr. Barry Jacobsen, University of Illinois Extension plant pathologist, the growth of the fungus in scabbed grain may produce toxic compounds that cause acute vomiting, nausea, dizziness and diarrhea if fed to animals. Three per cent or more df scabby kernels in feed are poisonous to hogs. ' If handled As forage and fed to cattle there should not be a reaction to tjie scabbed grain. Animals with single stomachs would be most affected. The severity of scab infection on cereals varies from year to year* Severe infection occurs during flowering and shortly after when the weather is warm and moist. The weather conditions at flowering time and following the emergence of the wheat heads have provided excellent conditions of scab infections, Eden said. Persons can get more information by asking for "Report on Plant Diseases Scab of Cereals" from their county Extension office'., f , Rockford ; Truck Driver Dies Of Burns CHICAGO (UPI) - Rockford truck driver Harold Conklin, 59, died in Cook County Hospital Monday night, the fifth victim of a fiery truck-car crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway, two miles from Chicago's Loop.
