Iowa Weather Favors Crop Growth Iowa's agriculture is favored by rainfall, seventy per cent of which comes during the growing-reason, which puts Iowa in a favorable position climatically. One man who doesn't waggle about the weather to fill a conversational lull is H. C. S. Thorn, head climatologist of the Federal and State Weather Service in Des Moines. His talk is based on past records which give farmers and planters some inkling of what weather risks .may be for the coming season. Writing in Iowa Farm Science, monthly publication of the Iowa State College Agricultural Extension Service, he said that weather prospects are good for a better season in 1948 than in 1947. ,His article includes several maps made to offset weather risks in planting. Iowa's crops are good when its weather is "average," he stated. He cited the 1946 weather which produced the highest average corn yields in the history of Iowa. Iowa lies in a climatic area which receives an average rainfall of some 31 inches. June temperature and July rainfall are most important to successful crops. Cold June temperatures increase the growth .period of corn, for example, and the prospects for soft corn increase. Adequate moisture in July assures the rapid growth necessary to fill out corn ears. The chances for a serious crop failure are about once in every 25 years, Thorn estimates. He bases his calculation upon the fact that Iowa's July rainfall had been critically low only three times during the past 75 years. , Iowa, in fact, the research and market division of the Iowa' Development Commission revealed, has not had a complete crop failure in its history. Thorn also pointed out that "soft corn may be a problem about once in every 11 years" and "about once in every eight years we can expect yields to be quite a bit below average." Weed-Free Lawns Are Easy With 2,4-D A weed-free lawn can be a reality if you follow a few simple rules to get rid of dandelions, plantains and other weeds. 2,4-D is the answer of the problem of getting weeds out of the lawn without spending hours of backbreaking drudgery, says E. P. Sylwester, Iowa State College extension botanist. While 2,4-D does a better job of freeing the lawn of weeds if applied in the fall, good results can be obtained if it is applied properly during the spring or summer. Don't spray dandelions too soon, Sylwester says. Wait until they are fairly well leafed out. If the plants are sprayed when very small they will only be set back. The roots will send up new shoots. The best time to spray is when buds have appeared. Apply 2,4-D on a warm, still day. A sprinkling can may be used but is wasteful. A 3-gallon knapsack sprayer is best. Spray with low pressure and avoid spray drift to desirable flowers, shrubs and vegetables. They are tender at this time of year and will be killed or severely injured if 2,4-D comes into contact with them. Iowa's 1947 corn crop was the smallest in 10 years. Iowa State Fair Premiums Increased A $1,700 increase 'in- premiums, recognizing the greater importance of certain cattle breeds in the Iowa livestock picture, was • announced today for the National Cattle Show at the 1948 Iowa State Fair August 27-September 3. Altogether, a record total of more than $35,000 in cash prizes will be offered on winning beef and dairy cattle, according to the announcement by L. B. Cunningham, fair secretary, and H. L. Pike, fair board president and superintendent of the cattle department. The premium list showed a $1,100 increase in offerings on Ayrshires, putting that breed on a par with other major dairy breeds. Polled Shorthorn prizes were upped $300 by the addition of new Iowa special classes. The Milking Shorthorn total was boosted $345. Cattle raisers will have a chance to compete for $7,250 in cash awards on Herefords, $3,910 on Shorthorns, $1,740 on Polled Shorthorns, $4,000 on Aberdeen Angus, $3,130 on Milking Shorthorns, $1,210 on Red Polled, $2,800 on Holsteins, $2,800 on Jerseys, $2,800 on Guern­ seys, $2,800 on Brown Swiss and" $2,800 on Ayrshires. • Although the cattle show is open to the world, a substantial share of the premium money will be offered in events restricted to cattle owned and raised in Iowa. "Iowa specials" include: Herefords, $500; Shorthorns, $300; Polled Shorthorns, $300; Aberdeen Angus, $500; Milking Shorthorns, $600; Holsteins, $600; Jerseys, $600; Guernseys, $600; Brown Swiss, $600; and Ayrshires, $600. Premium lists and full details can be obtained from the State Fair Secretary, Des Moines. As a result of experiments made by the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station, scientists believe they will be able to show that corn reaches maturity about 50 days after silking, no matter whether it is an early, middle or late variety. A great amount of time is consumed in talking nothing, doing nothing, and indecision as to what one should do.—Mary Baker Eddy.
