Demonstrations Have Been Held lu Kossuth County on the Controlling of Oyster Shell Scale and Results, (By E. R. Morrison, County Agent.) Professor C. L. Fitch, of the Iowa Fruit & Vegetable Growers' association was in the county Saturday, October 11, to attend the Corn and Potato Day put on by the Smith-Hughes class of the Swea City high school. Mr. Fitch spoke briefly on potato growing at the afternoon meeting and judged the potatoes and beets. While here, Mr. Fitch thecked results obtained at the Ray McWhorter farm near Burt and the Tom Cogley farm near Bancroft on potato variety and fertilizer demonstrations. Northern grown Cobblers yielded 286 and 233 bushels per acre on these plots compared to other varieties which yielded averages of 215 down to 140 bushels respectively. Fertilizers used included 0-20-0; 0-9-27; 0-12-12 ana 2-12-12, which gave little gain over the unfertilized check rows, owing to the dry weather. Although in the case of :he 2-12-12 where two per cent nitrogen was added there was a decided cut n yield on both plots. This has been ;rue throughout the state according to Mr. Fitch. The addition of nitrogen to a crop seems to stimulate top growth, delay setting of tubers and in a dry season, greatly reduces the yield on tuber or grain crops. On leaf crops, however, such as cao- bage, onions, and celery the stimulation of top growth by the use of nitrogen adds to quality and yield, according to Mr. Fitch. Gain on other fertilizer plots while not large, varied from no gain up to thirty bushels per acre. The results with nitrogen check generally with trials on other grain crops In the county where early setting and early maturity are a desired result and anything that retards such results is usually harmful. Dormant Spraying. Five demonstrations were held on the controlling of oyster shell scale in Hancock, Kossuth and Mitchell counties during the week of April 7, Various combinations including dry lime sulphur and dendrol and Sunoco dormant spray oils were used. Results were checked by H. E. White, extension horticulturalist, September 4 and 5, at which time eggs for the 1931 brood had already been laid. Mr. Nichols has prepared the following report. „ ., Kossuth county—Cooperator, Neil Smith, Algona, Iowa.
