Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, March 5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Rural subdivision causing property price to spiral EDMONTON (CP) The increasing number of new rural residential subdivisions is causing a rapid upward spiral in the price of farmland and putting stress on agriculture service boards, Parkland County service board chairman Peter Bakker said this week. Mr Bakker, addressing a conference of agriculture service boards, said land prices in Parkland County, 15 miles west of Edmonton, range as high as for a quarter section (160 Farther west, a quarter section sells for between and he said, adding that no one can deny a fanner the right to sell his land for subdivision bat "we can't keep good farm land in production if it is being sold for subdivision development" BUCKWHEAT Canadian buckwheat is giuwu mainly for human consumption and for the export market, especially Japan.

WELLS Barley Specialist Hector, a new, two- rowed, rough-awned barley variety, was licensed in 1973 for sale in Canada. It was developed at the Lethbridge Research Station from a cross between the varieties Betzes and Palliser. Hector is drought- tolerant, resistant to shattering, and moderately resistant to lodging. Results from early trials suggest that it is suitable for malting and brewing. Hector has yielded about 10 per cent higher than Betzes in trials on the brown and dark brown soils of Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan. In contrast, it has yielded no more than Betzes in trials on the black and grey soils of northern Alberta and Saskatchewan, or in Manitoba. Hector usually yields as well as Gait under average conditions but not as well where soil moisture and fertility are high. Hector is somewhat more resistant to lodging than Betzes. It produces a plumper and, therefore, heavier kernel. On the basis of preliminary and pilot plant tests, Hector is considered equal to Betzes in malting quality. ChooM motors with a future...
