Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Something Be Done About i reservoir surfaces, Improv- ig the effieioncy of water use v plants and removal of DOD- reductive plants from the land n rcas of the A multi-million dollar pro- J ect is underway In the Color-do Hiver Basin of the U.S. f covering parls of the Slates of Wyoming, aisd Colorado) J seed clouds and increase ie amount of moisture falling f n the land. The desire is lo imide more runcff water to ill part cf Ihe available storage n this stream. An increase of inch additional precipitation n this area, comparable to ne Slate or the southern half f Alberta, would add apprrai- l iialely of available water. Would Ihc rcmoral of an addi- ional inch of water from the :irculaling atmosphere influence another part of the Continental riurlh America? This qucs-ion is foremost in the minds of hose who doubt lire value of cloud seeding. As was poinled oul before, 160 inches of total depth moves across the Continent in one year with 30 inches cf Ihis falling on the land surface. If this amount falling was increased to 31 inchrs over the vliolc land surface, there would not be a great and noticeable modification to the climate in other parls o[ lire Continet. This, then appears lo be an excellent source for additional waler in a nation depending on approximately 9 inches across the n a I i or; lo pro-ride all facets of life with Chit COUTTS U.

However, Crom 19W to 1936 ar.d again from 1935 lo IKH population rose significantly, resulting in serious damage lo many bccl stands. In Ihe latter period up lo 12.WO acres were Ireated annually wilh insecticides to control iliis pest. Annual surveys made in cooperation with representatives of Canadian Sugar Faclorics Limited have revealed that once again the pest is on (lie increase in soul hern Alberta. !i this trend continues, many slar.ds of beets could be seriously damaged by Ihc maggots this year.

Growers are advised to aclliere lo the four year rotation progran that is recommended for con-Irol of Ihe sugar-bcel nema-lode. Last year we found lhat sc-vcral of the Infested stands were on the same lard where becls had been grown the previous year. This practice will assuredly contribute lo llie spread and increase of both root maggots ar.d nematodcs. Growers are advised not to treat their sugar beets vilh an insecticide merely as insurance against Ihs maggots. However, wiicre beet damage in previous stands has indicated that economic infestations of this pest arc present, growers can apply cither of the organophosphate carbcphcjioth i o n [Trithion) or elhion. One pound ot actual tosifanL per rjcre, applied in Ihe drill row at seeding time, should give satisfactory maggot control. This treatment will not leave toxic resi-riues In the hy-producls.

Where the insects are parasites that can only survive in a host animal, vaccination or immunization methods are being developed.

Representing the nation's two billion dollar beef business, MilcMI said "if feeders over-finish Ihcir cattle in an ellorl lo unload a surplus of feed grains, prices may easily bo driven doira lo where there is no prolil in the business.
