South Alberta Could Become The Corn Belt Of The West By RON WATMOUGH Herald City Editor BOW ISLAND Southeast- ern Alberta is on the way to becoming the corn-belt of West- ern Canada. The acres of grain corn now being harvested in the area east and south of Taber might be considered a pilot plan for a potential acres. Yields of 100 bushels per acre are seen for this area. It is suit- able because of the total heat units received in the growing season. Heat units are calculated us- ing the number of days with daytime temperatures above 50 degrees and nights above 40 de- grees. This summer the area had about heat units 200 more than an average summer. It has been a good growing year. Early maturing hybrid corn varieties do well in this range of heat units. Tests conducted by the Leth- bridge Research Station have produced yields of 150 bushels of corn per acre. Grain corn this fall is selling at about per bushel. The potential market for the corn is livestock feed beef, swine and poultry. A distillery planned for Lethbridge would eventually use about bushels per year the production from about acres. It is be- lieved the distillery would re-, quire abont bushels in 1972 and expand from there1.

Corn is a hardy crop. Har- vesting can be done late in the year and in temperatures as low as 20 below. It .stands stur- dy and does not easily go.down with fall .rains, wind and snow. Drying grain corn is a stan- dard harvest procedure every- where. Corn is harvested at about 30 per cent moisture con- tent and dried to 13 per cent for good storage. Wheat is har- vested and stored at about, 13 per cent. Harvesting equipment for corn is expensive. The four-row header attachment for a com- bine costs about One in use this fall has been supplied on a rental basis by a major machinery manufacturer. A to. .economically own a header and a "dryer, would need to be in the 400 acre production class. Some of the first corn har- vest this fall began Saturday-on the farm of Howard Cieland southeast.of Burdett. His fields, in a joint project with farmer- neighbor Adrian. Stensrud, are part of -13 plots of the Leth- bridge Research Station. Total acreage of the plots is 500 acres. The other acres being grown this fall in the south are under contract with Federal Grain Co. Ltd. Drying the grain from the sta- tion's plots is being done in Bow Island with an outfit of Dennis Williams of Drumheller. He con- tracted the drying with a com- mercial dryer (300 bushels per The dryer uses propane. Pro- pane and natural gas are the only two fuels which can be used without tainting the corn.
