Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 - TH^ lETHBRIDQE HERALD - Saturday, February 24, 1973 Crop insurance boc orecast A substantial increase in far-1 mer participation in Alberta's ; crop insurance program is foreseen by directors of the Alberta Hail and Crop Insurance Corporation as a result of changes being made lor 197:'.. These include higher bushel-per-acre guarantees, reduced premiums per acre and an optional "hail endorsement.'' Made possible by a new cost-sharing arrangements between the federal and provincial governments, these are changes which have been requested by many farmers. Farmers will now pay only one-half of the total cost of premiums, and the remaining one-half of the premium and all administrative costs will be paid by the governments. This reduc-, tion .means that the farmers' j share of the premium will be I down an average of one-third this year. Beef futures WINNIPEG 'CPi - Live beef futures: CLOSE TUUR... Mar 4;!.0OB 42.00 May 42.60N 42.60B -fly 42.35B 42.35B Sep 41.15 40.90B Thursday's' volume: Three contracts. Farmers will again be able to choose between two levels j of coverage - 60 per cent and 70 per cent of long-term average yields for their area. However, this year coverages are based on average yields over the past 10 years rather than a 25 year period as was used previously. The shorter 10-year period reflects the improved farming technology of recent years and results in higher levels of coverage in all parts of the province. The third major Change in the "ail-risk" crop insurance program is the inclusion of a "hail endorsement". For an ad-c'Uional premium of only 40 per cent of normal hail rates, an insured farmer can obtain spot-loss protection from hail. Farmers have pointed out that under the crop insurance program in the past there was frequently no compensation for partial hail losses. Now farmers who take the "hail endorse-' ment" will have the same complete protection against hail as those with a standard bail, insurance policy, plus the advantages of protection against the other natural hazards. Policyholders must make their election of crops, levels of coverage and insured values by April 30.

Wells of the Lethbridge Re. search Station, has been licensed for sale in Canada. Hector is a new malting variety named in honor of Dr. James Hector, a doctor, geologist and naturalist with the Palliser Expedition which explored Western Canada during the 1850s. Phil Blakeley. information officer at the research station, says Hector will likely be grown primarily on the brown, dark brown and thin black soils in Alberta and Saskatchewan. In field tests where a high proportion of Canada's two-rowed barley is grown, Hector has averaged about .10 per cent higher than Betzes, the most widely-used variety. Hector is more resistant to lodrn g (stems breaking due to mo: Vire and wind) and shattering, is about equal in ma- turity and has slightly larger and plumper kernels than Betzes. Seed for Hector is now being distributed to commercial seed growers. General distribution will not be available until 1974.
