Copies of these two publications are now available at the farm adviser's office. Injury to Fields Injury to corn fields sprayed with 2-4-D has been widespread this year. Postemergence sprays, which are made after the corn and weeds start to come up, are effective only on susceptible broad- leaved weeds. They do not affect annual grasses. Post-emergence sprays are recommended only if the weed problem cannot be controlled by normal cultivation. Growing com may be damaged by 2-4-D, the ! •, most severe type of injury being — stalk brittleness. A storm or cul-: tivation before the brittleness disappears may result in serious 116 stalk breakage. Our experience; indicates that the com becomes ' very brittle by two days after <.« spraying. I — Jf you do spray the growing corn, keep danger at a minimum j by using proper rates and me- 18 thods of application. In general, it isn't safe to apply more than: U pound of acid of the ester .« type of l \t pound of acid of the — amine type per acre. Stalk brittleness is usually most serious when corn is grow- '^O ing rapidly. It seems most likely to occur when corn is sprayed after periods, ol high daytime i gj temperatures (85 to 90 F orj . above). Brittleness, as well other types of injflry, can be held to a minimum by using corn drops on the boom after the corn is 8 inches high. IM Porte Wheat Several farmers have expressed some interest in sowing some wheat of the La Porte variety this fall.
