Co. Lenox, Iowa Molds and Frost Injuries Have Weakened Germination Quality More than 60 percent of the 1935 corn crop in the state probably contains mold, recent field observations and laboratory tests indicate. Prevalence of the dry rots together with frost injuries, both of which have damaged the viability of the crop, make it unwise to save such corn for seed, says R. H. Porter, chief of the seed laboratory at Iowa State College. Hundreds of ears of corn harvested the last week in October appeared normal on the outside, but when they were broken, mold was discovered. In some cases the germs of the kernels were completely rotted—in other cases only partially rotted, Porter states. In advanced stages of mold the kernels are practically always dead. Samples selected early and dried by artificial heat show a germination of 85 to 95 percent. Samples with visible signs of disease run as low as 50 percent viability. Hybrids Affected Too Joe L. Robinson, crops specialist working with corn hybrids in the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Association, states that hybrids are affected with Abbitt is captain of the "Four Ten Shotguns". Sixth Grade Sides were chosen in spelling with Lyle Hayes acting as captain of the "Lenox Flying Eagles" and Bobby Wynn, captain of the "Lenox Spelling Aces". The former are in the lead at present. Last Friday there were 15 A's in spelling. "Multiplication of fractions" is being studied in arithmetic. As this is National Book Week the bulletin board is devoted to material on "Why We Should Read Good Books". Luella Deaver was absent one day last week. Mrs. Wynn visited last week. Seventh Grade "American Revolution" is being studied in history. In reading they are studying Shakespeare and his stories. Eighth Grade Eighth graders are studying "how to make our community more beautiful", in civics. The boys are progressing rapidly in basketball . dry rots equally as much as open pollinated varieties. Hybrid corn that does not meet the 90 percent germination requirement cannot be accepted as certified seed. Robinson warns farmers against buying hybrid seed that is not certified, stressing the fact that uncertified hybrids may be unprofiable not only because of their uncertain yield, but also because they are not guaranteed to germinate at least 90 percent. The 1935 growing season was shortened by a cold, backward spring and an early killing frost. At the time of the first killing frost the moisture content of the corn in the field was high. Following the September frost, the state received considerable rainfall, accompanied by a warm period in October. It is probable, Porter believes,. that the dry rots made their greatest progress during this warm period when the humidity of the air and the moisture content of the corn were high. Samples Should Be Taken All farmers, whether they have selected seed corn or not, should investigate their crop immediately for germination quality, Porter advises. A sample of 8 or 10 kernels from each seed ear should be either left with the local county agent or sent direct to the seed laboratory at Iowa State College for testing. Porter recommends that all seed corn be treated with mercury dust before planting next spring. Experiments conducted during the last 8 years show that an increase averaging 4 bushels per acre may be expected from treated seed over untreated seed, and the diseased condition of the 1935 crop makes it unusually desirable to treat corn next spring.
