We thought you might like to know how some of your own neighbors feel about BUX. S _ ** ORTHO Chevron Chemical Company /InlrlJ Mr. Marlin Eilts of Sioux County is another satisfied BUX user. Here's what he has to say: "We started using BUX four or five years ago after \\>e began having roQtworm trouble and have had good success with it. It's easy to calibrate and there's no bad smell either. It seems to carry right through the season even with heavy ra/uj. We'll be using it again next year because it's always the same material. Don't have to change calibration or the insecticide boxes at all." Mr. Les Klemme of Plymouth County is another satisfied BUX user. Here's what he has to say: "When you get root loss in the field, you don't pick it up with a corn picker. That's why I like BUX. It's been doing a great job for me. It's easy to handle."
