BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Burdick Polls Businessmen, Farmers On a trip back to North Dakota, Congresman Quentin Burdick visit- ed briefly with Oliver Borlaug, edi- tor of the Washburn Leader, on problems facing small businessmen. Burdick has opposed the high in- terset rates that are affecting many small businesses and farmers in the state. Burdick is a candidate for U. S. Senate in the special election June 28th. He is opopsed by Gover- nor John Davis.

FOR NICE LOOKING LAWN~FE]gTILIZE To ~tive your lawn ~that dark green cblQr and maintain a vig- orous turf that competes with weeds, give your lawn a fertilizer treatment this spring. Two fertilizer materials eom- monly used are commercial fer- tilizer and barnyard manure, Ac- cording to Virgil L. Weiser, NDAC exten~on soil specialist, nitrogen is the primary element needed for lawns on our North Dakota soils. Potassium and phosphorus may be of some benefit on some lawns and can be included in lawn treat- mentts, but the proportion of nit- rogen in the treatments should be higher than the other elements." If you arc going to treat your lawn once a year, apply, about two pounds of actual nitrogen per 1,000 square feet of lawn, We(see says. In using a straight nitrogen fertilizer like ammonium nitrate, containing 33 per cent nitrogen, about seven pounds of fertilizer must be ap- I plied to supply two pounds of act- ual nitrogen. ,If a fertilizer containing 20 per cent nitrogen and some phosphorus and potassium is used, again cal- vulatte of fertilizer to use based on the per cent of nifrogen it contains. With this formula, ten pounds of fertilizer would have to be applied per 1,000 square feet to give two pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 feet. Some people like to fertilize their lawn more than once a year. If you are one of these, apply about one pound of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet and make two applica- tions. "Distribute the fertilizer evenly over the lawn to avoid streaks dif- fering in color and growth. A lawn ~e~t.ilizer s~reader wil| help get even disTxibution," he explains. To avoid the danger of burning the leaves of t~he grass, caused by some fertilizers when the grass is activeIy growing, water the fertiliz- er immediately after spreding dur- ing the growirtg season, or spread the fertilizer in early spring or late fall when the grass is dormant. If you are interested in using manure, spread on the lawn at ~- bouf a bushel per 30 square feet, is recomended. This is an old stand- ard treatment used to supply fert- ilizer and organic matter to lawn soils. "'North Dakota soils are well sup-, plied with lime. and lime treatment on lawns is not recommended." In addition to proper fertilizer treatmen% clipping and watering are important in maintaining a good turf. For Kentucky blue grass lav~s, the cu~ter roar should be set 1 to two in<~hes high. Closer clipping weakens ~he turf. Not more than a third of the top grow- th should be removed at each clip- ping. This means that a lawn cut down to a two inch height .o, hould be clip. ped each time l,here is an inch of regrow2h. Proper watering is helpful, too Water the lawn when the grass first ~ho~ gigs of wiD2ing. .Apl~ly enough water to wet the soil five to six inches deep. Frequent light sprinkling encourages shallow root- ing and increases turf diseases. F] Detergents made from crude oil have displaced ,more than half the farm fats and oils that used to go into soap.

Even when soil tests have been made to determine the rates of Ier- tilizer to aply to a particular fi)'d. you may wish to try several dif- ferent kinds or types of fertilizer to determine extra profit~ made by any of the fertilizer rates of ratios. Harvest the chee~ s~rips ~eparately, so you will kno'~, exactly what the yields are. Average increased yietd of 4.8 bushels of wheat For acre on sum- merfallow at a co~t of about $2.50 per acre is a nice profit margin, but the average take~ :n both much higher and much lower figures. What profits fertilizer w~ll make for you on your own farm is sometinng you will have to work out by means of check strips, experimenting un- til you find the combination that provides the greatest profit fr, r you. and then keeping ihe fee(ill:or up to that level in your Iields. County extension agents report th~ farmers are noticing the re- duction of the number of weeds in fertilized grain, says Virgil L. WeN ser, NDAC extension softs agent. They say fertilizer gives the grain an ex~a start and crowds out more weeds, 0oth increasing the yield and lowering the dockage. Art G~I1, Oliver county agent, quotes Max Erhardt, a farmer in his county, as saying that dockage has gone down every year he has u s e d fertilizer. Auother Oliver county farmer, John Yantzer, has seen fertilized wheat compete much beter with Canadian thistle and per. ennial sow thistle. Yantzer uses check strips, and there just were not as many plants of these troublesome Weeds on the fertilized strips as on ~he unfertilized. When ~dh'ogen fertilizer is used, I Information on checking crop yields an d~nalyzing the results for highest profits is available from county extension agents.
