Combined efforts of bees and the bug-killer DDT are brightening the prospect of growing alfalfa and red clover seed in Iowa. Low yields of seed in the past made farmers hesitate to grow alfalfa and red clover for seed. Now yields of alfalfa can be stepped up as much as six bushels per acre by controlling insect damage with DDT and by utilizing bees for better polination. Harold Gunderson, extension entomologist at Iowa State College, says to use two separate applications of one pound of actual DDT per acre on second growth alfalfa. Put on the first treatment when the alfalfa is four to six inches high and the second one-pound application just before the first blossoms open enough to show color. If treated when the alfalfa is in bloom, DDT will harm bees which aid seed production. Red clover can also be given the same DDT treatment. However, it may not respond with as high seed increases as alfalfa. Gunderson points out that more experimental work needs to be done on treating red clover. Floyd Paddock, extension apiarist, says that seed production is increasing considerably by use of bees. Last year tests in the southwest part of the state showed an increase of three bushels per acre with red clover, even though too few bees were used in some cases. He recommends four colonies per acre for red clover and two colonies per acre in alfalfa. Red clover is not really a honey plant, but by increasing the number of bees within a one-quarter mile radius of the clover field, some of the plant competition for the bees is overcome. Alfalfa, on the other hand, is a fairly good honey plant. But Paddock says it is still best to put the bees within one-fourth mile of the field. Grasses and legumes help build soil fertility, and they help control erosion. For Sale—Get your cattle at Erkel Cattle Company where price is always right. Responsible parties can be financed.
