Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta -Thursday, March 30, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Rapeseed has favorable position as cash crop for south farmers (HNS) The fnvor- through" of recent ycnrs mak- nblc posilum of rapcsocd cash crop In the irrigated fann- ing program was spcllctl nut In some detail at a rapeseed production seminnr hero. Marvin Galls, regional econo- mist, said a cost study showed production costs on irrigated land for rapc-scod and barley are almost identical. The returns for raposecd could average por aero compared with for barley. Mr. Galus .satd, "Too ninny farmers tend to compare a new crop with (he best paying crops they produce, "Rapeseed will likely pay belter than barley, grain corn, soft wheat or alfalfa, but will not 1.W as good as sugar beets or potatoes. It will prolv ably be about equal to sweet corn in net returns." Steve Dubetz, agronomist at the LetlibMridge Research Sta- tion, explained the results of ir- rigated rapcsecd plot work at Raymond and. Vauxhall last year. He emphasized that this was a first year test and could not be considered completely reli- able expec la lion for average yields in the future. lie would rather have yield information on a three-year basis. Mr. Dubctz said that fertilis- er and water requirements are quite high. Weed control in rapeseed was discussed by ecology Walter Yarish of Edmonton, who noted that during the past two years suitable weed control- ling chemicals have been found acceptable. This is one of the "hreaks- ing (ho production of rapo- seed possible on irrigated land, he said. Jim Archibald, Lothbrldge horticulturist, told the nieeluij; that insect pests are .similar in rapesecd to other crops, par- ticularly the beet web worm. Control methods are also simi- lar. The toxic affect of residues in the soil on rotation crops was (ho subject discussed by Larry V.'elsh of the Alberto department of agriculture plant industry division. Some crops, such as sugar beets and alfalfa. are more tolerant to (ho foxlcily of (he soil, but one in three and one in four rotation programs for rnpeseed are imperative. Bob Simmons, vice-president for Western Canada Seed Pro- cessors LUI. i n spoke on varieties of the crop most suitable for UKJ produc- of edible vegetable oils, lie said that presetil research indi- cates (hot within the, next dec- ade, new varieties will produce lictter oils than .soybeans. Mr. Simmons noted that while there is .some carry-over of rape-seed this year, the outlook for this crop is "fairly bright" JOE PGRLICH Phone 328-9772 SERVING THE AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY WITH EFFECTIVE MERCHANDISING OF WESTERN CANADA'S COMMERCIAL AND PUREBRED LIVESTOCK CATTLE HOGS SHEEP HORSES AND fAACHlNERY PERLICH BROS.
