Infested hens produced 26 per eem fewer e~gs lhan the noninfesled hens during the last 10 weeks of the test and 84 per cent fewer eggs during the final weeks of the test period. At the end of the period, there was an estimated average of 25.01)0 lice per infe.~tcd hen Irving J. Mork, NDAC extension poultry marketing agent, says that the ~-edtt~tion i~ egg productio~ from parasites would be even more pronounced in North Dakota. since the dominant parasite of this type in the state is the northern fowl mite. rather than the body louse, Fowl mites cause more irritation and do considerably more damage li~ter at the rae of one pound per ,50 to 60 square feet of floor space.

USDA scientists are zrying to develop strains of Indian r~,4egra,ss and green n~bedlegrass whose seed will sprout instead of remaining dormant. Indications are tha~ the new strains can be developed without ~d~e charactm'istic of seed dorman- cy, says G A. kegler, agronomist crossed in efforts to select for in- creased germin ~ ion. However, dormancy decreased as seed aged. For example, sevn year ola green needlegrass seed averaged 71 per cent germination, but seed a year old averaged only ~ per cent ger- mination. Moist-chilling or scarification of lthe seed with acid increase germ- ina~ion, but these methods are cumbersome, costly, sometime dan- gerous, and not always successful. Indian rieegrass grew ex~ensive- ly on arid ann semi-arid ranges in the West and Canada. A pala- table, nuCrRious forage, it was ~razed in suram~r and winter Green needlegrass grew widely on ~[he central and northern Great Plains. It is palatable, nutritious. has good seedlingvigor, and yields well. ---O-- Aboul half the pepole of South Am.~rioa live m Brazi' World Book Encyclopedia says Brazil is the largest country in South Ame- rica and t:he fourth largest country in the woa'!d. 242" GUN WA~ .~'/~HTED YOU COULD TO/qN IwlE OVE.~ 7"0 T/4F.
