L. K. Peterson, supervisor of agricultufe chemicals said Three Hills is the furthest south the worms have heen reported so far, and the chance they will show up in the south "is getting more and more remote every day." The army worm. Mr. Peter- son explained, thrives on im- mature crops and continues feeding as long as the stalks are moist and green, occasion- ally right up to combining time. Southern rapeseed crops are well advanced of those in cen- tral and northern regions and approaching full maturity, hav- ing been almost totally swath- ed. Seeds are turning hard and brown, unappetizing to the hordes of worms. The worms were first sight- ed in Alberta Friday in the Ver- milion district and have since spread rapidly over acres in central and eastern areas of the province. The worms, greenish-black in color and aoout I'.z inches long, have also infested one million acres in Saskatchewan and some areas in Manitoba. Lannate, a new chemical li- cenced only one week ago, is being used to combat the worms according to Mr. Peter- son. He described it as ex- tremely toxic.

Lannate is applied to infected fields by a spray plane and Mr. Peterson said the results have been good so far with alj fanners reporting good success. A pound order o! the chemical arrived in Edmonton early Tuesday. It has been trucked to the affected areas and will be sold at cost about a pound to farmers. Appli- cation cost is expected to be just under ?4 an acre. An appeal has gone out from the provincial department of agriculture to many points in Canada and the northern United States for aircraft with spray applicators. Heavy use of the planes in Saskatchewan in the fight against the worms, and the large number of fires in Brit- i ish Columbia, Alberta and i Northwest Territories has re- sulted in a critical aircraft shortage for use in Alberta crops. Two planes owned by the Kinniburgh Spray Service of Purple Springs which usually work in southern Alberta have been called north to fight the worms. Meanwhile, minor to severe damage has been reported in scattered sections of the south- ern rapeseed crop as a result of beet web worms. They have now been brought under con- trol. Late-planted crops also con- tinue to suffer as a result of a continuing lack of precipitation.
