Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 17, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 hip key conflicts in rural area Concluded from Page 26 view, Mr. Murray said the cost factor of allowing small parcels of irrigation land to be taken out of production will be much higher than for dryland operation. While in the past it has cost about per acre to develop irrigation land in Cheese vodka COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Dairy science and nutrition experts at the University of Maryland have developed wine and a substitute for vodka from whey. The beverages, they say, are tasty and full of vitamins "You can make a good martini out of said Dr. Joseph Mattick. He said his slightly yellow whey wine is "rather dry, like a chian- ti" Cheese producers make about 25 billion pounds of whey a year, Mattick said He said acid whey, a byproduct of cottage cheese, is high in protein, lactose or milk sugar, minerals and riboflavin. The alcoholic whey drinks may go on the market soon after alcoholic content is increased to 12 or 13 per cent from the current nine per cent, Mattick said past years, if more land must be developed to replace areas lost to production by' hobby farmers, the cost for development of new land will be more like per acre, he said. Mike Putici of Taber said there is a conflict of philosophy in the land use question. The problem is do people want to use land strictly for food production or use it as individual wants dictate, now the case. which is Powdery mildew on irrigated wheat By DR. T. G. ATKINSON Plant Pathologist Powdery mildew can reduce the yield of some varieities of soft white spr- ing wheat grown under irrigation. Trials at the Lethbridge Research Station have shown that the recently introduced variety Springfield is particularly damaged by this disease. Despite its greater suscep- tibility to mildew, however, Springfield out- yielded Lemhi 62, the other variety of soft white wheat widely grown in Southern Alberta. Tests carried out this year showed that a severe attack of mildew reduced the yield of Springfield by more than 10 bushels per acre. Although Lemhi 62 was less heavily mildewed, it yielded three bushels less than the 57-bushel crop produced by Springifle.d When mildew was kept under control with ex- perimental fungicides, the yield of Springfield was increased to 69 bushels per acre. Controlling the mildew on Hemhi 62 had little effect on its yield. Research at other centres has shown that the food synthesized in the up- permost leaves of cereals is important in filling the grains. Powdery mildew interferes with this process by masking the surface of the leaves with white colonies of powdery spores. It also causes the tissues surrounding the colonies to turn yellow, further reducing the ability of the leaf to manufacture food. In severe attacks, the conspicuous white mildew can even be seen on the green tissues surrounding the developing grains. As the leaves turn yellow, and the plants ripen, the mildew becomes less con- spicuous with small black dots appearing in the now- gray colonies. These black structures carry the over wintering spores. nm ALTA.

In the moist areas of Europe, powdery mildew is recognized as one of the most important diseases of cereals and fungicides are commonly used to protect crops. In the dry prairie region of Canada, mildew becomes a problem only when cereals are produced under irrigation. Decision He said the decision must be made before land use planning can be under- taken. The people on the land must make that decision, not top govern- ment and farm organiza- tion leaders. Mr. Donkersgoed asked if the public is really concerned about investors taking land out of agriculture production or are they worried about the resulting increased cost of that land in relation to their ability to buy? Several of the men criticized the apathy of farmers in general to the problem of land use. Mr. Blanchard said many people talk land use but few are willing to get involved. Once a decision is made on land use controls, those same unin- volved people will be the first to get mad if they are adversely affected. Mr. Donkersgoed said too many people are afraid participation in the land use problem might "cramp their style."
