Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, February 11, 1975-THE LETHBRIDGE ZIP iP YIELD simply confirmed previous research. In field tests on cereals on dryland, yields of wheat and barley were both increased significantly, he said. The tests, established at several places in Southern Alberta, proved Gait barley grown from magnetically treated seed yielded 1.3 to 12.1 bushels per acre more than that grown from untreated seed in seven of 10 tests. In two of the 10 tests, seed treatment had no effect on yield and in the other test, conducted in extremely dry land conditions, the yield from treated seed was lower than for untreated seed. Magnetically treated Betzes barley yielded 1.1 to 4.1 bushels per acre more than the control in both of two tests con- ducted. In five of eight tests with Neepawa spr- ing wheat, yield increases of 0.9 to 5.1 bushels per acre were recorded with treated seed. Yield increases of 1.2 to 4.5 bushels per acre were recorded in three of four tests with Glenlea wheat. Magnetic seed treatment had no effect on the yield of Wascana durum in two tests but in two others, yields were increased 1.4 and 2.6 bushels per acre. Mr. Pitman said for the third successive year, there was no effect of magnetic treatment on the yield of Sious oats grown at Lethbridge. No from other oat varieties was available. The treaters are simple and can be made at home, he said. This is what Mr. Schultz has done. He hopes to fill the Western Canadian market with his 14 pound portable grain treater, offering a compact unit that will retail for RIGHT: George Schultz with magnetic seed treatment box ;
