The Algona Upper Des Moinea, Algona, Iowa, June 7, 1934 Removal of Crop Restrictions Will Allow Farmers to Plant for Pasture FARMERS ALLOWED TO GROW CROPS ON CONTRACTED ACRES Corn and Grain Sorghums Excepted. Contracted Acres for Pasture KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS Lonls Smith and Edward Allen, Fie?-? Representatives Removal of planting restrictions contained in corn-hog adjustment contracts will enable Kossuth county farmers to utilize their crop land In practically any way thev see fit to produce emergency forage crops this year, ac- <cordlng to word received bv G. A. Bonnstetter, county agent, from the AAA through R. K. Bliss, director of the extension service at Iowa Slate College. The liberalization of rules has been made because of the drouth situation and the need of producing emergency feed crops for livestock, said Mr. Bonnstetter. The new rulings permit the following: Farmers may grow any forage crop they desire on land not designated as contracted acres with one restriction. If corn or grain sorghums are planted they must be planted for forage after a date to be designated soon by the AAA. Otherwise, all restriction on land not designated as contracted acres are removed. Secondly, farmers may grow any crop they desire on contracted acres except corn and grain sorghums. Mr. Bonnstetter explained, contracted acres may be pastured or a forage crop removed. What crops are planted will depend largely on the development in weather conditions, said Mr. Bonnstetter. Soybeans may be planted on contracted acres for hay or pasture providing seed can be bought reasonably. Many farmers will plant sudan grass for pasture or hay because it withstands dry •weather and will produce n fair crop under all but the most extremely adverse conditions . Others will plant corn and grain sorghums late to secure forage. No "Special" Markers Required of Corn-Hog Contract Signers Men are reported canvassing the farms of corn-hog contract signers selling steel posts on which are painted "Contracted Acres" In some counties, County Agent G .A. Bonnstetter said yesterday. "The men who are selling the posts are giving the impression that it is compulsory for all contract signers to mark their contracted fields with such posts, but that Is not true. TKe n.en are attempting to tell an ordinary ar- tida at ar-hw pgioa," . -»_,...„-. ., "The AAAi." «atd Mr. Boiwitrtteif, "requests that contracted fields be marked with stakes, which may be seen plainly, at each corner. The official ruling regarding the Identification of contracted acres reads: 'Unless otherwise required by the secretary, the boundaries of the contracted acres shall be definitely marked by substantial, visible posts or stakes, or In such other manner as the county allotmen committee shall require.' "The Kcssuth county allotment committee has not made a change which alters the administrative ruling," A. E. Clayton, president, said . Midsummer Hog Prices Will Likely be Higher Despite the fact that hog prices have been moving downward since the flrst of March, economy's at Iowa State College nnd a ray of hope In the picture. Although hog prices have dropped, they say In the June issue of Agricultural Economic Pacts that the cost of hogs to packers has Increased considerably, because of the processing tax. Blnce a large part of this tax will come back to producers who have signed the corn-hog contracts, the income from hogs is not as small as It appears on the surface. The higher cost of hogs to packers also indicates that the consuming public la able and willing to pay Increasing amounts for hog products, the economists believe. "The early movement of fall, 1933, pigs to market this spring and the alight reduction in the pig crop last fall should result in decreased market- ings of well finished hogs tills summer. Littla immediate improvement in prices seems likely, but a fairly healthy advance seems to be in the offing for midsummer," they declared In the publication. This advance will be further helped if cnosumer demand for meats continues to improve.

Not Too Late to Seed Clover, Alfalfa It is not customary to seed clovers during the summer, but fully as good results may be obtained as from plant ing at small grain seeding time in the spring, says Prof. H. D. Hughes, of thi Iowa State College Farm Crops am Soils Department. The pracSibality of seeding swtee clover and other clovers in summer has been demonstrated Wy many plantings made at the Iowa garicultural experiment station through a p:-riod of years, as well as by seedings made by farmers. . Most of the sweet clover seedings made in central Iowa as late as the first of September have been successful, though it is believed better to seed by the middle of August. Red clover needs to be seeded, somewhat earlier to be safe. The acreage of swe-rt clover and of other clovers seeded early this spring on contracted acres for soil improve- iijtnt, as well as the acreage weded on other land, was far below that anticipated. This is believed to have btrn due to a general shortage of available cash in the hands of farmers at the normal seed buying time. Seedings of clover or alfalfa made in the summer are put in without a nurse crop and should be sown on clean ground. Summer seeding has an advantage in weed control, since the weed seeds may be allowed to sprout and be killed before the crop is planted. June is usually one of the best months for sowing alfalfa and August is almost as good. i The success of summer seedings of clover and alfalfa is dependent upon • moisture in the soil for germination as through la a car.
