Usually the fields are in good shape to get on at this time of year and soil samples can be taken easier than during the win- r. Also this allows the retorts to be processed at the tab earlier with less time detay than during the spring during the rush. With the reports back, the farmer then has a chance to plan his program for next year's crops in muet bet- ter shape. By planning the fer- tilizer program ahead of time the farmer is then in shape to take advantage of a good buy on .fer- tilizer any time during the winter. Most tertilizer dealers have the soil boxes on hand along wih the information sheet. If not, contact our office as we have a supply.

This caused the lawn to look brown and dry even with proper ferti- lizer and moisture. They can be controlled by applying, either diel- drin or afdrin as a spray or pow- der to the affected tarea. These two compounds come in many dif- ferent strengths so directions should .be ollowed. For easier figuring either should be applied at the rate of 1]/4 ounces actu per 1000 square feet of lawn area. If it is a 25% formuhtion this would mean using $ ounces of the material.

In the for- est areas ey have tried to elim- inate the Lust by g-:tiag the host plants Of currant and gooseberries. In Our area this isn't possible so a spray of the affecte'J trees ig called for. If you have some af- fected areas on pines you cm spray ,dth tictidione. This is a very good material and works as a systemic.
