Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IETHBRIDGS HERALD Saturday, March 3, 1973 All-time grain export record established WINNIPEG (CP) The Ca- "nsdiau Wheat Board reported Ihis week an all-time record {or West Coast gram exports was set in February, (he short- est month of the year. board said in a jiews ro- preliminary figures show -that more than 35 million bush- of grain were loaded on -ocean ships during February. This compares writh the pre- 'vious high for the same mouth of 23.0 million bushels, set in and the previous record jor any month oi 32.2 million -bushels set in September, 1972. G. N. chief commis- swier said the record clear- ..ances "is a gcod indication ol -the large quantities of grain '.'tli at can be moved through Cau- -ada's handling ar.d rtion system when conditions favorable." The record movement for is a continuation "the record movement that has 'been maintained since last Sep- rtembcr. "In sharp contrast to last win- ter when rail shipments to the Vest Coast were interrupted ipeatedly by snow slides and derailments, the snow and wea- her conditions have been ex- cellent so far this year." Mr. said. "Togellier with the fairly reg- ular arrival of ocean vessels, this has made it possible to maintain a high and even flow of grain through the weal coast he said. Grain price review WINNIPEG (CP) Oilseeds came under heavy selling pres- sure during the final hour of trading Friday, with prices dropping as much as 17 cents after mid session on the Winni- peg commodity exchange. Flax was hardest hit by the sudden commission house and elevator selling and the with- drawal of exporter buying. Prices dropped from about sev- en cents above previous close levels to the maximum limit of 10 cents below. The lack of buyiig interest spread to rye also with prices there dropping about two cents in the final hour. Oats ar.d bar- ley were generally steady all day with good domestic shipper buying.

FRANK HARPER Plant Pathologist I.cthbrldge Research Station White rust Is one of the most common diseases of rapeseed, mustard, and other cruciferous slants in the Prairie region. The disease first appears as small, wliite, raised pustules on :he undersides of the leaves of young plants. Rich of these pustules contains a mass of microscopic bodies called spor- angia. These sporangia are car- ried on air currents to other plants, where, on coming into contact with' water, they ger- minate. Each one produces several liny spores. that swim in the water Film unlil they find a suit- able place to enter the plant and begin a naw infection.

If a sporangium germinates on, the susceptible tissue of a de- veloping bud the infection may- become systemic and produce a swollen, distorted growth, which replaces the inflorescence. Such a characteristic i growth is kno vn as a "staghead." White rust on the leaves ap- pears to have little effect on the growth or yield of the infected plant. However, a staghead pre- vents normal seed formation and, therefore, affects the yield of the crop. Recent studies at Uie Leth- bridge Research Station have shown that the loss in yield is equal to tho percentage of flow- ering branches that have been replaced by stagheads. In 1972 the loss in yield of rapeseed in Southern Alberta was esti- mated at 2.6 per cent or bushels. A Stagheads on mature plants are filled with the overwinter- ing bodies of the white nist fun- gus. When the crop is harvest- ed the stagheads break into small pieces. Some of these are collected with the seed; the re- mainder fall to the soil sur- face. Therefore, seed from af- fected crops should not be sown the next year unless It Is thoroughly cleaned, and no rape should be sown on land that The manufaclurcrs liat if they did not raise the eposits to four cents for a 10- unce bottle and 10 cents for a M-ounce bottie, the bottles might flow to British Columbia and Saskatchewan, where the leposits are five cents and 10 cents, respectively. Mr. Yurko said jpfillables ac- count for 82 per cent of the soft- drink in the prov- nce and he is watching wheth- er tho higher deposits on refill- ables will result In Increased use of non-refillable containers, whom deposits remain at two cents each. produced an affected crop the previous year. The commonly grown varie- ties of turnip rapeseed (Polish variety) such as Echo and Span are susceptible to white rust. Commercially grown rapeseed varieties of the Argentine type are highly resistant to the strain of the white rust fungus now common on the prairies, A breeding program is under- way at the research station at Saskatoon to develop turnip rapeseed varieties with resis- tance to white rust.
