Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wddnnday, Moy 3, 1972 THE LETHBRlnO! HrfiA'D J7 Major oil spills are forecast i I I I IIFESTITIWIS Wild oat infestations build up in a natural "chain reac- tion." Seed blow or wash into the soil, sprout, and grow to maturity. Then, as each plant matures, it scatters an average of 250 new seeds to infest the soiL.and the cycle builds up pest populations, year after year. Break that chain of events, and you begin to solve your wild oat problems! Wild oat seed germinate usually from the upper two inches of soil, and only when moisture and temperatures are ideal to trigger sprouting. Only and BW herbicides work in the viable wild oat soil zone throughout the germination period, normally up to six or eight weeks. That's why only A vadex and Avadex BW break the chain reaction of infestation build-ups. Here's why other methods usually fail: Delaved planting and mechanical only wild oats which have sprouted. As the soil is turned, how- ever, hundreds of new seed may be brought from' lower levels to the germination zone. Once in this zone, if mois- ture and temperatures are right, many of these seed germi- nate and infestations are as bad as ever. Furthermore, by delaying seeding, part of the crop growing season is reduced yields are sure to result. Post-Emergence herbicide wild oals in the two to three leaf stage.only. Older wild oats usually are not harmed, and seed in the ground continue to germinale vigorously so long as moisture and temperature condi- tions permit. Post-emergence sprays kill a lew wild oats, but they never break the infestation chain. Ineffective control methods and failure to understand the true nature of the wild oat cycle have permitted a danger- ous build-up of infestations. The results? Yield losses that crow each year...shocking dockage accessed against grain and oilseed harvests...and the loss of big portions of cost- ly investments in seed, fertilizers, and other crop inputs for hundreds of farmers. Avadex and Avadex BW herbicides arc applied prc- emergent, and incorporated in the upper two inches of the soil at crop planting time. The active chemical is ab- sorbed by wild oat seedlings, and seedlings die no harm to crop plants. Best of all. these herbicides remain active up to eight weeks, over the normal wild oat germina- tion span. This six to eight week chemical blanket breaks the wild oat infestation chain.

Each spill would he "upwards of or more than barrels, the report says, and could not be prevented be- cause evidence has shown that human error is a key factor in more than 90 per cent of all oil spiU incidents. But the unknown, long-tern effects of such spills on sea life "indicate that we cannot afford major oil spills at even 20-year intervals." The report, entitled West Coast Oil Threat in Perspective, was prepared by Howard Paisli and Associates, a Vancouver firm of environmental and re- source management consult- ants. The firm is under contract by j the environment department to study oil spill .potential and tlw effect such spills would have on the marine environment should giant tankers begin plying the route between the port of Val- dez, Alaska, and a refinery at Cherry Point, Wash. The route, pending approval of the trans-Alaska pipeline sys- tem, would take the tankers through Juan de Fuca Strait and the southern part of the Strait of Georgia at the south- ern end of Vancouver Island. The area is noted for its ca- pricious weather and sea condi- tions, and is considered by mar- iners to be one of the most har- zardous areas for shipping in the world. The report recommends that the Canadian government "pur sue with the utmost vigor every possible avenue" to insure inter- national protection of the envi- ronment from oil spills. WOHK OUT PLAN The report also recommends: Canada.and the U.S. establish a contingency plan for control of major spills, particu- larly on the route between Val- dez and Cherry point. a fund for use In con- trolling spills be created hy as- sessing a 17-cent tariff for each ton of oil and oil products trans- ported in the area: Canada and the U.S. establish a marine traffic man- a g e m e n t system to control movements of all major vessels travelling the inland sea region between northwestern Washing- ton, Vancouver Island and B.C.'s lower mainland. The study says one federal agency should undertake regu- lation, surveillance and enforce- ment of oil transfer operations. No evidence of arson i discovered CALGARY (CP) No evl- i dence of arson has been found during investigations of two fires in downtown Calgary last month, one which took the life of a 25-year-old firefighter. Four fires, which occurred i within a few weeks of each olh- er, were the subject of investi- i gations by the fire marshal's j department and the fire pre- vention bureau. More than million damage i was caused at Atco Industries i Ltd. in southwest Calgary, the Mac Arthur Furniture Ltd. i warehouse near the downtown section, the Beachcomber Res- I taurant and a three-storey j building in the mall. A spokesman for the investi- j gators said today "we are quite 1 sure that the downtown mall fire was no! arson." "The investigation into the Beachcomber fire is not con- eluded but there is no indica- lioi. of arson there either." So far. there has been no statement on results of the probe into the fire at Atco In- dustries. It was established shortly after the MacArlhur fire that arson was the cause, but no arrests have been made.
