That's why thousands of growers are putting in their orders for THIMET (phor- ate) soil insecticide . . . now! It's the low cost, proven, resistant- rootworm control.

It is free-flowing. You avoid down time due to caking. No matter how you measure THIMET, you Will find it provides top resistant-rootworm control. Don't risk resistant-rootworm damage. Use THIMET-the low cost, proven, resistant-rootworm control. Start on the way to bigger, better corn yields today—order THIMET from your insecticide dealer. Come harvest, you'll be glad you did.
