A life member of the Alberta Institute of Agrologists and the Agricultural Institute of Canada, Dr. Palmer served in Pakistan directing agricultural research Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON Alberta Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer expects the federal government will give serious considera- tion to immediate freight rate help for Alberta meat producers. Dr. Horner met with Otto Lang, federal minister responsible for the wheat board here Friday. He said the immediate help in the range oi 50 million to 100 million in freight rate subsidies would be broached with the tcdera! cabinet by Mr. Lang. The federal government had plans to equalize freight rates for meat and grain late in 1974. But Dr. Horner said that un- less something is done in the interim period, it could be very damaging to Alberta producers of beef, pork and lamb. What a subsidy would do is offset federal aid to eastern producers in the field of feed grains and enable western meat producers to ship their products on a competitive basis.

CALGARY (STAFF) In- formation gathered by or- biting American spacecraft could help farmers of the world increase food produc- tion, says a U S agricultural expert. Using data collected from space, workers at the Remote Sensing Institute in Brookings, South Dakatoa, are able to determine soil moisture reserves in millions of acres of land using a single photograph Victor Myers, director of the institute told The Herald following his talk to the an- nual meeting of the Pacific Northwest Region of the American Society of Agricultural Engineers here the information compiled from the orbiting spacecrafts is particularly important to agriculture. He said the information has already been used to observe soil limitations, plant dis- eases, insect infestations, irrigation management, rangeland management and snow cover. And Dr. Myers feels the work being done at the in- stitute holds answers to many agricultural problems in Southern Alberta. Because the spacecraft or- bits the earth 14 times daily, pictures of the entire earth's surface can be repeated every 18 days Through the 18-day cycle of photographs, farmers can be warned of apendmg outbreak of insects ahead of time and be ready to use chemicals recommended by the large in- formation computer bank which holds all the data collected from the spacecraft. Still in the experimental stage, the plan is to have add- ed spacecraft circling earth to reduce the time element between pictures of a given area from 18 days to three. Then county agricultural agents will have information retrieval systems so they can E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Leth.) DENTAL LAB. LTD. 204 Medical Dental Bldg.

With this improved service, said Dr. Myers, the up-to-date information can provide answers to problems at a time when farmers can still handle them. Using the pictures from space, the amount of snow cover could be determined for any given area, he said With this type of service, farmers in the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District would have more accurate figures on the amount of runooff from the foothills and mountains that would be available for agricultural use.
