Farmers Alerted To Another Foe AMF.S (t'Pl) _ Iowa State university entomologists this week warned that corn fanners already hurt by hot weather and drought conditions now Face potential hazards from the rootworm beetle. Fnlomologist Harold S'.oek- dale said he has received several reports of damaged fields in central and southern sections nf the state. Stockdale said Ihe beetles are attracted lo the pollinating "i- silking con, fields. They feed on silk, thus preventing pollination and kernel develop- ment, lie said. The number of beetles required lo prevent pollination varies. Stockdale said, bill because of stress conditions such as the lack of moisture the number is greatly reduced. He said normally al leasl III in beetles are required before pollinating is inhibited, but due to the moisture stress five beetles per plant may be damaging. Slockdale said if farmers detect a niotunrni beelie problem, insecticide should he applied without hesitation. Want Ad office open 8-5 daily.
