TUESDAY, JUNE 4, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE FIVE May's Column , FoJlow-Up on Those Transplanted Trees By TRUMAN W. MAY Madison County Farm Adviser If you've recently transplanted trees and shrubs, don't ignore them. You'll Improve your transplanting luck If you follow these suggestions: Remove one- fourth to one- third of the branches to make up for roots lost in transplanting. Wrap trunks of trees to prevent moisture loss and sunscald, starting at the ground T. W. May level and continuing up to the first branch. Use either burlap or commercial tree wrap paper. Stake newly planted trees to keep them from being whipped and loosened by high winds. Wind whipping can keep tree roots from becoming re-established. Fasten the tree to stakes on both sides of the tree with wires. Use 2 by 2 or 2 by 4 inch stakes. Loop the wire around the tree- in three places— where the first branches start, midway down the trunk and about fi inches from the ground. Use plastic tubing or rubber hose to keep wire loops from cutting into the bark. Keop tho wires tight. Watering will vary, depending on the plant's condition, rainfall and soil condition, including water- holding capacity. Overwatering to the extent, that it excludes air from the soil will damage the plants. On the other hand, frequent shallow watering only encourages shallow root development, which harm the plant , in hot, dry weather. So water slowly and thoroughly, soaking the soil to a depth of 8 to 10 inches. A basin around the new planting helps hold moisture close to it. After you water for 15 minutes, dig to see how deeply the water has penetrated. Then you'll know how much time 'is required for deep watering under your conditions. Don't apply fertilizer to newly cause denitrification loss on poorly drained soils. Side-dressing has some special advantages: (1) you can apply nitrogen in years when you most need it and omit it in other years. If, for example, you have a very poor stand of corn or large areas drowned out, you can save the nitrogen you planned to side- dress. But, if you have an unusually good stand and plenty of moisture in the subsoil to produce top yields, you can side-dress at an extra-heavy rate. (2) Side- dressing gets the nitrogen on after you've controlled the weeds, so you fertilize corn, not weeds. (3) There's less time for nitrogen to leach from sandy soils or to break down — by denitrification — in poorly drained soils. You can side-dress dry, liquid, or gaseous nitrogen carriers. Cost, available equipment, and convenience should dictate which form to use. Compare costs of nitrogen fertilizers on the basis of cost per pound of actual nitrogen applied to the soil. If applied correctly, the different forms of nitrogen are nearly equally effective. Grubs In IJUWIIN Several people have inquired recently about the control of white grubs in lawns. Homeowners can detect damage when grass wilts, I urns brown and dies. When you roll the sod back, you will find large numbers of' grubs eating away at the patch. This sod dies and must be rcseeded. Three types of grubs predomi- annual June nate: true white grubs, white grubs and green planted trees. Wait early this fall — mid-September to late November—after growth ends and before freeze-up. In late summer — mid-July to mid-September— fertilizer application only stimulates late growth that does not have a chance to harden off before killing frosts. Nitrogen for Com Each year more and more farmers side-dress their corn with nitrogen. Side-dressing is not necessarily better than plowing under or broadcasting before planting. Each way has its advantages. Personal preference, available equipment, convenience, and cost may be the determining factors. Consider side-dressing your corn if you did not apply enough nitrogen earlier or to replace the nitrogen lost because of the unusually heavy rains. Leaching of nitrogen often occurs on sandy soils. Kxtrn-wot conditions can 50TH ANNIVERSARY Mr. and Mrs. George Struharik, 130 E. Acton Ave., Wood River, plan an open house on June 9 for their 50th wedding anniversary.

The true grub hibernates over three winters below the frost line, while the other species spend only one winter hibernating. In the adult form, grub.' emerge as black, brown or tan beetles that can be seen feeding on trees or shrubs. Females lay eggs during July to start another cycle. Controls can be applied any time of the year. A practical method is spreading insecticides as granules along with fertilizer. Two effective insecticides are chlordane and dieldrin. Apply chlordane at 2% pounds per 10,000 square feet, and dieldrin pound per 10,000 square feet. These chemicals can also be sprayed on the lawn, which is the more common method. After spraying, water the lawn to filter the insecticides into the area where the grubs are located. .

Cicadas are present In the southern part of Illinois and soon will be noticeable here. The high- pitched shrill sound made by the mule cicadas is an indication of their presence. The females will soon begin to lay eggs in t h e small branches of trees, and dam- ago may be severe in newly planted fruit and shade trees. If only a few newly planted trees are involved, cover them with cheesecloth, fastened tightly so that cicadas cannot get into this tent. If chemical control is needed, use Sevin according to label directions. Do not apply it to producing apple trees within 30 days after full bloom or to Boston ivy. Signs identifying the farm op erator and advertising his farm business are appearing at the entrance of more farms in the county. They add to the appearance of the farm and provide effective advertising for some kinds of funning, especially for livestock and products sold at-the farm. A sign was recently erected by Leland Steiner, Saline township dairyman. A number of Holstein cattle breeders have similar signs, obtained from the Holstein-Frie- slnn Association of America. Other breed associations of dairy cattle and livestock also can sup ply signs. A sign advertising his vegetables has been erected by George Willaredl of Edwardsville town ship. Perhaps a sign at y o u i farm entrance would help pro rnoto your farm products and add to the appearance of your place.
