FRIDAY, JANUARY T, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWg PAGE NINE REVIEW -FORECAST Ivan Wood, Clarksdale Speaker, Is Made Available for Arkansas : Ivan Wood, chief irrigation specialist for the U. S. Department of Agriculture': Extension Service and located in Denver, will be available for a Mississippi County irrigation meeting this winter. , Announcement of his availability for a series of meetings in Arkansas was made today by J. M. Thompson, district agent of the Extension 'service's Little Rock office County Agent .Keith Bilbrey made .the request of Mr. Thomason after several Mississippi Countians heard Mr. Wood speak on Irrigation at a fleeting in Clarksdale. Miss. 1,000 at Meeting The Clarksdale session, which covered most phases of irrigation, was attended by aproximately 1,000 farmers from over Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas. , Mr. Thomason further advised that he has given Blytheviile and Mississippi County top priority on the services of Mr. Wood when the latter becomes available for Arkansas. Just when he'll be here. Mr. Thomason nointed out, will not be known until later. It will mark Mr. Wood's first appearance in this area. NEW FORD — Ford's new 1955 tractors go on display at Snow Tractor Co., here today. Above is the new 800 series designed for heavy work in all types of soil. This 880 model Is equipped with live power takeoff. Power has been increased by 30 per cent and it has a five-speed transmission. Another series, the 600, also is offered by Ford. It's the first time in half a century the company has offered more than one size tractor. Correct Gasoline Storage Can Cut Farm Costs As Missouri farms become more and more mechanized, the amount of money spent by farmers for engine fuel increases and it is important that it be handled cojrect- ly. D. B. Brooker, agricultural engineer at the University of Missouri, says iti s ^estimated. that costs amount to as much as 5 to 7 percent of the total operating expenses of Missouri farmers. This represents a cash outlay by farmers^of the state of something like $40^million and Is about the same amount of money as farmers in the state are spending for fertilizer, i pil companies are supplying the farmer with gasoline of good quality. It has an octane rating that is suitable for present day tractors, it has a vapor pressure high enough to assure quick starting and warm-up and it has additives to lessen the formation of gum. The question is, Brooker says, just what Is the effect of various types of farm storage on these desirable properties of gasoline. Also, how much gasoline — and dollars — are farmers losing by evap- oration of the gasoline while it is in storage. To determine the answer to these questions, the University of Missouri in cooperation with the Missouri Farmers Association Oil Company and the Ethyl Corporation have begun a series of tests. The first test, which was made this past summer, is just being completed. In this test, three types of storage were used. These were 55-gallon drums described as follows. One — one drum was un- shaded and used a filler cap that vented the tank to the atmosphere. Two — the second drum was equipped with a vented filler cap and was shaded with a metal shade. Three — the third drum was shaded, with a metal shade and was equipped with a pressure regulating cap to allow the tank to become pressurized to some extent before gasoline vapors could escape. This preliminary test shows that gasoline in shaded Unxs did not heat as fast during the day or reach as high a temperature as the unshaded fuel tank. On a typ- j MORE THAN HE BARGAINED FOR-Tom Elliott, 10, Batavia, III has a rough time trying to calm his hog for judges at the Market Hog Show in Chicago, 111. Children from Indiana and Illinois showed some 8-10 hogs they fed and fitted as 4-H and t AA vocational projects. Tom was the youngest exhibitor. ical summer day, the unshaded* tank reached a temperature 'of 98' degrees and was above 95 degrees for 5"/ 2 hours. On this same day, shaded tanks were about 7 to 9 degrees cooler during the hot part of ;he day. This preliminary test shows the effect of this difference in temperature is about as follows, Brooker notes. One — a farmer storing gasoline in 55-gallon unshaded drums can expect to lose about 18 ] / 2 gallons of gasoline a summer out of each drum. In addition, he might have some trouble starting his tractor due to a loss of vapor pressure. �� a farmer who uses this same type of storage but provides a good shade for the tank can expect to lose about 8*A gallons out of each drum. Three — if shade and a pressure ap are both used, losses may be reduced to as little as 4 gallons from each drum during the summer. The octane rating of the gasoline ! did not change in any of the drums during the tests nor was gum content changed enough to be meas- 1 ured. I It is true that farmers who are> storing in larger containers — 300 j gallon or larger — will not lose as high a percentage of their gasoline but their losses are probably enough to make it worth while to provide shade. Pressure caps will also probably pay for themselves. .Similar tests run in Indiana show that a farmer who used 200 galons of gasoline a month from a 300- gallon tank can save about 46 gallons of gasoline in a summer by use of a pressure cap, Brooker says. A pressure cap that maintains a pressure of about three pounds a square inch should be used. Higher j pressures might cause failure, i particularly if the tank is weakened by rust.

Box 988) Blytheviile, Arkansas 12/31-1/7 Drouth Hurt Corn Yields Lack of Silk Production, Poor Timing Hit Crop According to Marcus Zuber, agronomist for the United States Department of Agriculture cooperating with the College of Agriculture at the University of Missouri, two of the most important reasons for low corn yields in a drouth year such as 1954 are the lack of silk production and poor timing between tasseling and silking. The lack of viable pollen caused by "burning" and "blasting" of tassels is probably not as important as has been thought In the past. In work done at the Missouri Ex- perlment Station this year, it was found that corn plants produced viable pollen and had receptive silks following days with maximum temperatures of 113 degrees when sufficient soil moisture was available. The importance of adequate soil moisture is pointed out from results of experimental irrigation work done this year, Zuber says Irrigated plots compared with non- irrigated plots tasseled earlier silked earlier, had fewer sterile tassels, had a better timing be tween tasseling and silking and had fewer plants without silks In the experimental irrigation work, two planting rates were usec — 7100 and 14,200 stalks to the acre. During the course of the experimental work, it was found thai when the water application was reduced, the smaller planting rate versus the larger gave better .tim ing between tasseling and silking had fewer sterile tassels and had fewer plants without silks. Also, two levels of nitrogen ap plication were used in the irriga tion tests. The highest nitrogen level — 240 pounds an acre — did not materially influence tasseling and silking dates, tassel sterility or silkless shoots when compared to the lowest nitrogen application of 120 pounds an acre, Zuber says. Silking and tasseling data were obtained from an irrigation experiment conducted at the McCredie Field in Callaway County in 1954 and were previously reported by Darnell Whltt, a researchist for the JSDA and the Colleeg of Agrlcul- ure. Temperatures as high as those experienced during the summer of 954 indirectly affect corn plants by Increasing the rate of evaporation and transpiration, Zuber notes. When transpiration rates exceeded moisture uptake by roots, top- firing resulted. In most Instances, corn first began top-firing in a section of a field where available soil moisture was lowest. Many fields whfcb were badly fired had spoti with higher soil moisture where con did not fire and some grain wu produced pointing out that burnlnf and blasting was not as important as other factors during the 1064 growing season.
