By TRUMAN W. MAY Madison County Farm Adviser Pro-emergence herbicides have become increasingly popular for con I roll ing early weeds in corn and soybeans. Many farmers are using them, but when to cultivate after using pre-emergence herbicides is a common question. Odds are about 3 to 1 that pre- emergence herbicides will do a satisfactory job. But they can fail, especially when not enough rain falls to move them into the soil. If the chemical i s controlling weeds, don't rush cultivation of the treated area. If you banded the herbicide over the row, cultivating it too soon or too close to the row may throw new T. W. May weed seeds into the treated area and reduce the benefits from the chemicals. On the other hand, if for som reason the herbicide is not killin weeds, better not wait too long t start cultivating or hoeing. If you applied one of the moi soluble pre-emergence herbicide such at Randox or 2,4-D, at plan ing time and it hasn't taken hoi within two weeks — and weec are showing up — chances ar that the chemical isn't going t work. In such cases, you'd bette move in with a rotary hoe or cu tivator to get the early weeds. Don't Wait it Out If you used one of the longe lasting chemicals, such as atra zine or amiben, weeds will some times begin to grow and then di as the chemical is eventually tal en up by the small weeds. Her again it's risky to wait too long hoping that such chemicals wi do the job. They might not. Bu these longer lasting chemica: give you some flexibility. You ca clean up the first crop of weed with the rotary hoe or row cu tivator if weather permits. The you may still get some benef from the chemical on later weeds In recent research at the Un versity of Illinois, agronomist found that rotary hoeing with th •row about two weeks after plan ing had little effect — good o bad — on performance of most o the pre-ernergence chemicals tha were used. Will your investment be a tola loss if you use the shovel cult vator to get the first crop o weeds? Not necessarily. A longe lasting chemical, such as atr zine, may remain to help contro later weeds even if it did not wor on the first crop of weeds. You' throw new weed seeds on top o the chemical band, but as these seeds germinate and the roots o: the weeds reach the chemical, yoi may still get some benefit. If you can't cultivate because it's too wet and the chemical i controlling the weeds well, be thankful that you used it. If the chemical isn't working weeds are growing and it's dry enough, cul tivate — don't wait. Cucumber Pests If you're planning on a bountiful crop of cucumbers and muskmelons from your garden, controlling the striped and the spotted cucumber beetles will pay off. These two insects spread bacterial wilt when they feed on cucumber or muskmelon. plants. In the complete absence of the beetles, the disease does not occur. On the other hand, heavy insect infestations can wipe out a crop. The only control is spraying with an insecticide when the seedlings first come up and continuing the applications at f r e- quent intervals throughout the season. Extension entomologists recommend using 0.75 per cent rotenone dust or light applications of 3 per cent DDT dust. Or you may want to try Sevin, which has no restrictions on application. This newer insecticide can be applied up to and including the day of harvest. You can combine the insecticides with most fungicides —zineb, captan, maneb or fixed coppers — if foliage and fruit diseases are also a problem. When bacterial wilt strikes, the individual leaves wilt and become dull green. The infection soon AUTO LOANS TO SUIT! "Easy does it" when you refinance your car here.

Agronomy Day Agronomy Day at the University of Illinois South Farm on June 20 features such diverse research as new oat varieties, all- out corn and wheat yields, alfalfa varieites. new disease-resistant soybeans and corn hybrids, yellow dwarf and other oat diseases, corn viruses, corn relatives, development of the corn plant, lawn care, wheat varieties and diseas-- es, insect outlook, plant-pick tillage, wend competition studies and post-emergence herbicides. Wheat harvest will he earlier than usual this year. Combining of a few early fields will start this week, mostly in the eastern part of the county. The crop will be good, although not a record-breaker. A few fields when the wheat was blooming and pollinating during the brief spell of cold weather in April show scattered damage —incomplete filling of the heads and early ripening. This accounts for some more exposed parts of a field turning yellow while the rest of the field was still green. This will reduce yields slightly in some cases. The wheat variety plot grown by James Winet on the Highland- Grantfork road is now showing some interesting differences. Stop and see it. Varieties in the tost are Knox, Knox 62, Monon, Omaha, Ottawa, Pawnee, Ponca, Red Coad, Tas- cusa, Trumph and Vermillion.
