There were Beet Growers' Association an- nual meeting in Lethbridge oday. The association's agricultural committee suggested that grow- ing practices have changed over he years and individual farm- ers vary in their application of hese practices.

The committee said it did noi know of any other agricultural product sold by weight alow without any consideration of quality. Some of the changes devel oped over the years includ skilled use of fertilizer, herbi cides, land cultivation and irri gation.
