Broiled steer steaks proved to be more tender, more juicy, to the taste panel. Tenderness of steaks was also measured utlizing a carefully calibrated mechanical shear test. Steer meat offered less resistance to shearing force and was thus recorded as more tender. There was essentially no df-ference in tenderness of roasts from steer and bull carcasses but steer roasts were preferred for juiciness. Dr. Cliplef said these Hay, secretary of the Alberta Hereford Association moved from Nanton to establish an office in Innisfail Sept. 1.

The mailing address is Box to higher. Alberta cattle on feed estimates as of July 15, show very little change from last year. The over 800-pound weight category shows a decline in cattle on feed, despite the fact that Alberta marketings since July 15 have shown a sizable increase. The logical explanation is that finished cattle have been marketed at lighter weights. According to Mr. Hurnanen, average carcass weights this year have consistently been under 1970 levels. 4-H news from southern Mueller, Bonny Stanko, treasurer; Nim Sugimoto of the Leth-bridge Coaldale 4-H Club Black, secretary; Treasa Garber, treasurer; Coutts International 4-H Light Horse Club held its Hruska, club reporter; Diane Templeton, Calvin Mill- assisted in the re Kana, club Achievement Night phoning committee; Robert of the Wrentham 4-H Thompson and at 7 p.m. in the junior 4-H cuncil rep- Elections for the coming year were held recently with positions filled.

Rapeseed sprayed with Lannate not affected for human consumption Housewives who use rape- seed oil for cooking and baking have shown some concern about the residual toxicity of Lannate, the chemical used in Western Canada this summer to control the outbreak of Ber- tha Army Worms in rapeseed crops. Many inquiries have reached the Alberta department of agri- culture and to allay fears that rapeseed or its end products might have been affected, the director of the provincial plant industry division, has issued a release which deals with this subject. The release points out that Lannate was licensed in Can- IETHBRIDGE RESEARCH STATION Genetics in pest control DR, RUBY I. LARSON, Cytogeneticist Built-in resistance or immu- nity provides an ideal way of controlling pests and diseases of field crops. It has several advantages. It is simple. The farmer need only sow seed of a resistant variety to achieve control. It is reliable as long as the pest does not mutate or adapt to the resistant variety. It eliminates the cost of appli- cation of pesticides and no toxic substances are added to the environment. When the re- sistance is not sufficient in it- self, special cultural methods may also be desirable. Through cytogenetie studies at the Lethbridge Research Sta- tion we are lerning more about how to produce built-in resist- ance. Some wheat varieties are resistant to the wheat stem sawfly but suspectible to com mon root rot. There are others susceptible to sawfly but resist- ant to common root rot. We substituted pairs of chromo- somes, one pair at a time, be- tween these sorts of varieties. Then we tested the substitution lines for resistance to sawfly and to root rot. We found that the main gene for root rot re- sistance is on a chromosome that does not affect sawfly re- sistance. The breeders will be able to breed a sawfly-resist- ant variety less susceptible to root rot than those presently grown. Comparisons were made of the numbers and proportions of different micnmrganisms in the soil around1 the roots of dif- ferent lines. We discovered that the chromosome that controls root rot also affects other soil organisms. We believe that the differences caused by the sub- stitution of this chromosome may be related in some way to the extent of root-rot infec- tion. Chromosomes from other species arc also bcinj substi- tuted into wheat to control dis- eases. Among the chromosomes of tall wheatgrass are two that, when substituted into wheat by a breeding method, give resistance to wheat streak mosaic and to the mite that carries the virus that causes the disease. Since these chromosomes change other characteristics, the plant can- not be used directly as a wheat variety. The parti of wheat- grass chromosomes with genes for resistance will have to be transferred to wheat chromo- somes by irradiation to produce a satisfactory resistant wheat variety. Cytogenetic research has long range goals. Practical re- sults cannot be expected imme- diately. But each new hit of knowledge represents progress on the way to controlling some pests and diseases without the expense, trouble, and danger of applying pesticides. ada for vegetable crops about two years ago but for rapeseed only this year. Because this chemical breaks down very rapidly, tomatoes that have been sprayed with Lannate can be eaten the next day and only a day or two is required before cabbage is safe to eat. Lannate breaks down into carbon dioxide, ammonia and water which are all compo- nents of the environment and, therefore, not harmful. Be- cause tills breakdown is caused when the chemical comes in contact with water, it has a very short residual life in the soil and it presents no threat to the ground water supply. This short residual life of the chemical means that it will have disintegrated between the time that rapeseed crops were sprayed and the time they are harvested. Lannate would not be present in the rapeseed oil because it does not dissolve in fat or oil as is the case with the chlorinated hydrocarbons such as DDT. Surveys carried out by the Canadian Wildlife service in both Alberta and Saskatchewan have not shown any detrimen- tal effects to wildlife in either province that can be attributed to the use of Lannate.
