And as the price of beef has the practice of rustling has spread out of the west and into areas of eastern Canada where raising a few cows is a sideline prac- ticed by a minority of fanners. In for ex- about SO head of cattle were stolen in the first part of the summer. In where governments have been en- couraging fanners to turn to raising the number of head rustled has climbed from 146 in 1970 to 430 last year. It is expected to be more than this year with even larger numbers being rustled in Alberta and British Colum- bia. The price'paid for stolen beef is about 50 cents per making the average Research Station Residual effect of atrazine By J. J. SEXSMITH Agronomist Atrazine has been used successfully for several years for weed control in. corn and corn is the only crop presently grown in Southern Alberta in which this herbicide can be used. It is known that atrazine persists in the soil and that its residue is toxic to many subsequently seeded crops. It is not known exactly how long it persists under Southern Alberta con- ditions nor which crops are most likely to be tolerant. Test plots were set out in the spring of 1972 on a silt loam soil at the Lethbridge Research Station and on a fine sandy loam soil at Taber. Atrazine was applied pre-emergence to an irrigated sweet corn crop using rates of 0 and 2 pounds active herbicide per acre. The corn crop was harvested in the fall and the area ploughed to a six inch depth. Following a relatively dry winter and early a good seedb- ed was prepared and in mid May rows of 15 different crops were seeded across the previous year's atrazine treated plots. Soil samples were taken at Lethbridge in and analyzed in the laboratory for atrazine. It was found that the quantity present in the soil to an eight-inch depth from the two-pound treatment was less than one tenth part per million. All of the seeded crops appeared to germinate nor- mally but within a week signs of atrazine injury became evident. Visual ratings of crop tolerance were made six to seven weeks after planting. No crop was sufficiently tolerant to the atrazine even from the one- pound to be con- sidered as anything better than a very poor crop. Most crops were severe- ly affected or completely killed. Crop tolerance was slightly greater in the silt loam at Lethbridge than in the fine sandy loam at Taber. Of the 15 potatoes were somewhat more tolerant than follow- ed by barley and flax. Con- siderably tnlprant than flax were spring and oats. Killed or nearly so were sugar beets and wheat. These tests will be con- tinued on this land until most of the selected crops grow normally. under conditions existing in Southern no com- monly grown crop but corn grown successful- ly the year following an overall application of even at what would be considered a minimum or near minimum rate of one pound active herbicide per acre. head of cattle worth approximately to the rustler. The rise of meat prices has ensured a market for stolen beef both in Canada and the United States. It is easy to get the beef across the border in the west because there are often large distances between manned customs in some cases up to 200 miles. TRACED Within stolen beef has been traced to households and restaurants trying to beat the price rise by buying cheap quarters of beef with no questions asked. To combat the growing number of who often ride around in half- ton trucks and carry high- powered ranchers and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have form- ed joint patrols in some areas. In such patrols co-ordinated with a special five-man squad of moun- have curbed rustling to an extent. But ranchers fear the worst is still to come with the arrival of autumn and the hunting season. Would- be rustlers will have an ex- cuse for being on the range with a highpowered rifle. And if they get caught after killing a steer they can always claim they mistook it for a deer.
