New, untried ideas, perfected in practice, make the difference between happy, excited farmers and those who look at their work in terms of "back to the salt mine I" So says Dr. J. A. Stritzel, Iowa State University agronomist who will speak at the Corn-Soybean Clinic this Thursday, March 18th on the topic "Fertilizing for Top Profits," at the V. F. W. hall in Algona. "We've got so much to be excited about in Iowa," says Dr. Stritzel. "First, we've got a wonderful climate for our crops,, particularly corn and soybeans. Second, we have excellent soils. Third, we have Iowa State University research results at our fingertips or as close as the nearest phone. Fourth, we have an array of fertilizers never before available to farmers anywhere in the U. S. - and at reasonable prices. Fifth, the new herbicides may allow us to go fishing instead of cultivating I Sixth, insecticides help our varieties realize their maximum potential. The challenge confronting .farmers today is that of putting the above pieces of the crop production puzzle together in such a way to make the most profit. The excitement comes in meeting the challenge - in solving the puzzle. Profits come when the pieces are put together properly. The successful farmer not only makes a profit but also tends to be forever curious. He has the curiosity of a child. He is always asking himself, "1 wonder what would happen* if I did this - or did this job another way ? " In plain words, he likes to experiment - to try new things.

During World War II he served as a second lieutenant in the AAF. Old Proverbs For Farming Fading Fast Knee high by the Fourth of July. A dry June makes a good corn crop. Cross out these old-time growing proverbs. They are being displaced rapidly by modern agricultural practices and new improved hybrids. The likely new rules: Head high at maturity. A wet spring for best chemical weed control and fertilizer use. The surest prediction any one can make about growing corn is that it will continue to change. Since I960, we have seen stepped- up use of chemicals and fertilizers, new Insecticides come on the scene and plant populations increase. At the present time, farmers are challenging the 40" row width. Keeping ahead of the farmer with new and better hybrids Is a real challenge; but corn breeder's have kept pace. DeKalb, for example, has introduced a whole new family of single and three-way crosses to meet the modern farmers specific needs. These crosses, the XL's , are performing well in the field and constitute a real "Breakthru" to higher corn yyields. Another new development, which the farmer has been asking for, is short corn. With thicker planting rates, farmers become more aware of the effect of overall plant height and ear height on ease of harvesting. Short hybrids that equal and exceed normal hybrids in yield are in active demand. One such short hybrid was introduced in 1963. It will be widely grown this next year.
