Codling moth larvae that have over-wintered in packing boxes, baskets, bags and other materials around packing houses can cause considerable damage this spring. The extensive use of DDT in recent years has eliminated the codling moth from the list of serious apple insects, H. E. Nichols, Iowa State College horticulturist, says, but it is still a good idea to destroy as many as possible before the growing .season begins. Many growers screen their entire packing house so the codling moths in it can't get out into the orchard to lay their eggs. Other growers screen a single room, in which they store all picking equipment which might hide the overwintering codling moth larvae. Flushing the cream separator with hot water before the milk is poured in warms up the motor and steps up the speed of separation Furthermore the water will wash out any particles of dust that might have blown in after the machine was assembled.

Any impurities in the water are much more likely to show up in the spring or rainy season than at other periods of the year. Conserving and restoring soil fertility almost always benefits farm wildlife, says Robert Moorman, Iowa State College wildlife conservationist. Contouring, strip-cropping, grassed field borders' and gully control all make for more wildlife food and cover.

Iowa State College forester, says that black locust is one of the trees which has often failed because it Was not planted where conditions were right for growth. It is a popular Iowa tree, and a good one for erosion control and fence post production. Often the tree produces fence posts within 10 years. They are good posts, too, capable of 25 to 35 years of service when properly seasoned. But Grau says black locusts should be set out on northern and eastern slopes where possible. The northwestern and extreme northern portions of the state have not been favorable to black locust under any conditions. Grau points out two reasons why many black locust plantings have been failures. First, the tree is not a native of Iowa. It is generally found further south. It often begins growth very early in the spring and continues until late in the fall. Possibly because of this, black locusts are frequently killed in the sections where winters are most severe. In addition, a black locust borer has infested many plantings all over the state. Greatest damage has occurred where trees are growing on poorer soils and where exposures are to the south or west. Black walnut generally will grow well under the same conditions that are favorable to black locust. "With the exception of cottonwood, it is usually best if trees are planted more or less in a mixture says Grau. Cottonwood will do best in pure stands on overflow bottomland Practically no species will do best on dry south and west exposures, but such trees as eastern red cedar, burr oak, white oak and jack pine will thrive fairly well For the first time since 1937, red clover is costing fanners more than Grimm alfalfa, according to Francis Kutish, Iowa State College agricultural economist. Red clover, supplies are considerably smaller, and prices are about 17 percent above Inst year, he reports. On the other hand, large supplies of alfalfa seed hswu pushed its pi-ice down about 20 percent below last spring. Of the 21 seeds quoted by the U. S. Department of Agriculture, 10 are higher and eight are lower than a year ago. Sharpest drop is in Kentucky bluegrass. With an abundant 1947 crop, prices are nearly B0 percent under the record high of last year Farm labor mains scarce. in the Midwest re- EXCAVATING! — and —. BULLDOZER « WORK BASEMENTS Dl '(j] C. J.
