Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THl LFTIIBKIDCE HERALD Snlurdny, Auouil 17, 1973------------ Druggists EDMONTON' (CT) ll'C Canadian Plmrmamitical As- sociation announced its support here for legislation allowing driiryb'ts In sLibslLUite one hnHui of a Government scientists arc not doing as good a job of hail control as private contractors, a legislative committee hearing on crop and weather modification was told here, Jim Bishop, an area farmer and advocate of weather con- trol, said a hail-suppression program by Dr. Patrick Krick of the Alberta weather modifi- cation co-op cut hail losses in one area during the last 15 years. But the Krick organization has not given the job of hail control in Alberta because of the government's "bureau- cratic bins" which, he said, is a "direct Import from the United States." Francis Olson, a Drumhcltcr, Alta., farmer told the commit- tee private hail suppression techniques used in Oklahoma proved more effective than those of the government bu- reau of reclamation. He urged the committee to consider an approach to hail in- surance that would "give the farmer a great deal more for his insurance dollar.1' Adoption of the Krick tech- niques would allow the estab- lishment of hail insurance pre- miums at one-sixth their pres- ent cost, he said.

"The Infestation Is consider- ably more widespread than lat he said, explaining that the worms are in two re- gions they didn't hit last year Ihe northwest and the south-1 east. "Everybody's watching the situation closely. Some of the infestations fizzled out and oth- ers wbich didn't look like they'd survive, have developed very quickly. "We're dealing now with 30 counties, about half the munici- clitics in Hie province." Some infestations especial- ly in Wainwright, Vermilion iis'er, Flagstaff, Minluirn and Heaver counties of central Al- berta arc up lo 300-330 worms a square ynrd. Tlio cost of spraying an acre, Mr. Gurba said, is for the -annale ami for the air- craft. year, the provincial gov- ernment graritcd farmers an acre to help cover the cost of spraying but this year there will he no direct payment be- cause the infestation was ex- pected. Compensation will lie avail- however, in cases where re-spraying is necessary be- cause of rnin after the first treatment or because of lack of effect. Dupont lirts agreed to pick up thiid of Ifie bill for rcspray- g while the province will pick up fiO per cent of Ihe remainder and the county will pay rest.
