I. Management School time in its western section; growers in 80 per cent of the pnmnce's. a g r icultural region can now insure against losses to Iheir oats and barley crops. And with the proposed intro- duction of the Prairie Grain Stabilisation Plan and the pro- posed winelup ot the Prairie Farm Assistance Act, crop in- surance would become even more important to prairie farmers as a means of protect- ing themselves against losses. Amendments e a r 1 i e r this year to Ihe federal Crop Insur- ance Act have broadened Ibe scope of the program. The amendments extended cover- age to all land which cannot be seeded because of wet weath- er. Previously, this "bare ground" insurance applied only lo summerfallowcd land. Ontario has adopted the re-! vised unseeded acreage plan, bringing lo 15 the number of in- surance plans available to farmers hi the province. The others cover winter wheat, oats, barley, mixed grains, for- age, soybeans, white beans, grain corn, potatoes, silage corn, apples, nnd tomatoes, peas and sweet corn grown for processing. Three other provinces have added new crops this year. Prince Edward Island has added flue-cured tobacco and already half of the island's acreage of this crop has been I insured. Other insurable crops in P.E.I, are potatoes, oats, barley, wheat and mixed grains. Nova Scotia this year added flue-cured tobacco, gram corn and silage corn to its list [hat already includes oals, barley, mixed grains, spring and win- ler wheat, fall rye, apples and pears. By Ric Swiharf AlbcrUi Sugar Beet Growers Association is the largest sugar producing group in Canada using beets as the source. The Allierla growers have been accorded the distinction ol being the "big brothers" lo Manitoba beet growers. William Ronald, a first vice-president to the Cana- dian Sugar Beet Producers Association and the Manitoba Farm Bureau and president of the Manitoba Sugar Beet Growers Association, told 103 delegates to the Alberta con- vention that the western prov- ince has been in Ihe business twice as long as Manitoba. lie said it was a record year for Canadian sugar beet production with a high sugar content and higher than av- erage prices. He pointed to the higher tonnage of beets per acre that are grown in Alberta with some degree of envy. He said the 1971 crop in Manitoba was tons of beets on acres farmed by 531 growers. The average contract was for 60 acres. There were 280 pounds of sugar produced from one ton of beets and the average tonnage per acre stood al 12. The sugar beet king for 1971 was Angclo Boras of Coaldale with a record production of 28.19 tons per acre on a 40-acrc field. The 10-year average for the classification is 19.11 tons per acre. Mr. Ronald said Manitoba would never likely, reach Alberta tonnage per acre slalislics but indi- caled wilh progress could improve. Some odds and ends. The Western Slock Growers' Association welcomed the announcement by Premier Peler Lougheed lhat the honied cattle tax has been lifted. This is for a probationary period ol two years. Under this tax, producers who sold catlle with horns paid a tax. What a great way to create a monopoly for unadorned heads. II sure is lucky Ihe government knows Ihe difference between reindeer and cattle. Whether it was farmer pressure or just good com- mon sense, agricultural Alberta will welcome the suggestion that fanners he paid for supplying re- creation land to any and all sportsmen and fun lovers, Many say this was aimed at the snowmobiler but after this past hunting season, reaction from the farm community in southern Alberla would point the finger at inconsiderate hunters. Stifler sentences for persons convicted ol rustling was also emphasized by the 500 delegates lo Ihe WSGA convention. This is good in lhat it may help to make a per- son think before walking off with some cheap T-bones hut the problem still remains trying to catch the wild west fantasy seekers. I hope the next Ihieves get a cow which is completely warble infested and that he gels caught with the goods.
