FOR ONIY vtitabla at FTD MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP Phone 327-1515 boost for farm economy Province provides incentives for southern corn producers By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer BROOKS Producers of grain corn on southern Al- berta's irrigated land will re- ceive a direct incentive cash payment for each bushel grown during the 1973 crop year. Alberta Agriculture Minister Dr. Hugh Homer announced FHday a direct cash payment for farmers in an attempt to encourage more producers to include grain corn in their cropping pattern. The provincial government will pour into the farm economy in southern Alberta over a four year period in an attempt to raise production totals to an anticipated one million bushels by 1976 from the expected bushels this year. R-oducers will receive a cash payment of 40 cents per bushel harvested in 1973, 30 cents per bushel in 1974, 20 cents per bushel in 1975 and 10 cents per bushel grown in 1076. EMERGENCY Dr. Homer explained that this year's assistance payment is basically an emergency measure because there is only about 800 acres oi grain corn being grown in the province. Hand in hand with the an- nounced incentive for produc- ers was approval of a develop- ment grant of to Pioneer Grain Ltd. to help in the con- struction of a central drying facility at Taber. Tiie grain coci must be dried following harvest operations to bring the moisture content down to a level which will al- low it to be stored without spoiling. This costly facet of the harvest process was con- sidered one of the major fac- tors hindering the expansion of the acreages for grain com.

BADLEY NEEDED Town officials were ecstatli over the announcement. Harry Fowler, Brooks industrial c< ordinator, said it is one of th best things to happen to th town. It is something badl needed, In fact, desperatel needed, he said. Mayor Bev Nelson said th present hospital is inadequat for the area. He said represen fattens have been made to gov eminent for years and these e Mi'. Hargrave was named su- wrmtcndent o( the centre at Brooks in 1M3. His contribu- ions to the agricultural indus- ry include the introduction of numerous fruit, ornamental and vegetable varieties. He al- so gave strong assistance :o the then infant horticultural ndustry in the province. He left his mark on almost every field of horticulture, said Dr. Art Larson, superintendent of the centre. He worked as a plant breeder, a researcher, an author and an extension specialist. TOP IN FIELD Mr. Griffin, as manager of the department of natural re- sources for CP Rail, was re- sponsible for much of the early promotion of fruit growing on Ihe Prairies. He was also one of Western lanada's foremost authorities on irrigation. Mr. Griffin, who died In 1946, was a major driving force be- iiind the development of an ir- rigation testing station in the Brooks area. The test station grew into a demonstration farm from 1910 to 1935 as he in- cluded the production of shel- terbelt and tree material In the operations program. In 1935, the provincial gov- ernment took over control of the station and renamed It the Alberta Horticultural Research Centre in 1970.

Mr. Nelson said the new hos- tal will mean better facilities tnd will provide a more im- orlant medical centre for rooks. It was said the hospital could a rijality in Vh years. larticipation in the cost of es- ablishing the drying centres was prompted by the anticipat- ed increase in the acreage of jrain corn in southern Alberta. COTS COST By aiding the private grain landling companies with the drying facilities, the govern- ment feels it is assisting the producer. The provision of spe- cialized equipment required for he corn, crop will reduce the nitial investment needed by any new producers. Dr. Horner said as the total aushels produced increase, the need for financial assistance to encourage estabtishm e n t of specialized equipment will be eliminated. He feels companies and in- dividuals will have established these facilities by virtue ot as- sistance in 1973 and 1974. The volume of grain handled by then will have increased to the point where facilities will be self supporting in covering operating and amortizing costs. Dr. Homer said the incentive program would also help the of- ficials of International Distil- lers Ltd. which Mill open a new distillery in Lethbridge nexl year. The plant could use grain corn for the distilling process if enough of the raw product is made available at a compeli live price. Dr. Horner blasted the fed eral government's departmen of regional economic expansion for lack of support for tie pro- ject. Apparently officials of the listilling firm approached )REE and were refused assis- ance. They then approached h e provincial government, seeking assurance of raw prod- uct, not money. Dr. Horner feels this incen. ive to producers will malca adequate supplies of raw grain corn available to the company. WELCOME NEWS Ralph Trimmer, a member of the Alberta Cora Committee rom Lethbridge, said tlm jroup welcomed the announce- uent. The committee apparent- ly spearheaded the project with direct communications with the Alberta department of agricul- ture. Mr. Trimmer said it is hoped that the incentive will bring more producers into the grain corn business. "As the acreages expand, grain corn will be- come more profitable and this will enhance Ihe tolal economy of the farmers he said. Dr. Stan Freyman, research scientist at the LethbTulgo Re- search Station and president of Ihe Alberta Corn Committee, said the incentive will assure farmers that they won't lose their shirts during the first years of learning to grow crop. "It makes grain corn a very attractive crop to he said. Dr. Freyman said the com- mittee approached Dr. Horner with the proposal and "he cepted it in entirety.
