GRANDE CACHE. ALBERTA TOE OYO Potato growers double yield' CALGARY (Staff) Closer co-ordination of cultural prac- tices and more attention to research data could double the yield for Alberta potato growers, about 60 producers to the annual meeting of the Alberta Potato Growers Association were told here Thursday. Steve Molnar, potato production expert at the Alberta Horticultural Research Center in Brooks, said yields of potatoes on irrigation land in Southern Alberta could reach 18 to 20 tons per acre, up from the 11 to 12 tons per acre average now being produced. Growers in the Edmonton and Lacombe regions could boost production to 12 to 15 tons per acre on dryland, up from an average of seven or eight tons per acre. These production figures attained under field conditions confirm research on increasing potato yields, he said. But to reach these goals, producers must review the diiferent of production from soil preparation to storage. The different steps must be established for in- dividual conditions on each farm. Following his presentation, Mr. Molnar told The Herald farmers should make use of soil testing laboratories, both the provincial government facility in Edmonton or private laboratories throughout the province. Especially with potatoes, knowledge of the nutrients in the soil is essential so the right fertilizers in the right amount can be added to max- imize production. Preparation of the land to make a good seed bed is the most important part of early field work, he said. Because farmers must cut their own seed potatoes into the right size for planting, more care must be exercized in this operation to attain un- iformity Bridge results Ladies Wed. Afternoon D.B.C.

Farmers must also make sure they use the proper chemicals, since particular weeds in different fields can be the yield limiting factor Improved irrigation prac- tices combined with careful harvest, handling and storage of potatoes will help to im- prove returns. Mr. Molnar said more work must also be done on killing vines chemically prior to harvest This practice helps to "set the potato skin" or to make it more firm, making it more resistant to damage en route to storage facilities from the field. He said producers must develop a new system of production for the potato in- dustry It is past the time producers can apply something new they have learned while forgetting about other cultural practices which are needed to maximize returns, he said Bishops call two day fast for Catholics WASHINGTON (AP) Ro- man Catholic bishops in the United States have called for major increases in U S aid to poor nations and for two days of fasting a week by this coun- try's 48.5 million Catholics. "We also urge resistence to advertising and other forms of social pressure which promote affluent and wasteful eating the bishops declared Thursday in a pastoral plan to help meet the world food crisis. Fasting generally means eating only one full meal a day. The plan asked the United States to act immediately to boost allocations of food to hungry areas without regard to political or strategic motives. In other action, the bishops for the first time took a na- tional stand against the death penalty Their action came in the midst of efforts in a number of states to restore the death penalty- After wrestling with the question for three days, the bishops adopted a one- sentence statement putting them on record in opposition to capital punishment. Catholicism traditionally has held that the state has a right to execute criminals to protect society. Numerous bishops said they were not challenging that principle but only its application in modern circumstances.
