^^HUNTLEY ^«''"'stde VOLUME 5 — NUMBER 14 THURSDAY, JULY 9, 1964 PHONE: 312-669-5621 (any time) (U no answer; 816-469-0098 r"-;.!.:-:7. if.'. 6 PAGES mailf:i) and distributed weekly 7c PER COP* Vo. Ag. Students With Oats Miss. McHenry County Candidates Larry Johsnon and Allen Melm- soth, Huntley High School Vocat¬ ional Agriculture students, are shown comparing the effects of at¬ razine on oats. Larry, on the left, shows the nomal growth of oats on lower ground while Allen shiows very little growth of oats on high ground with the same amount of atrazine applied perfj^j. ; on corn last year. ,' These plots are part of the Hunt¬ ley High School's demonstration plots for agriculture '"'* the com¬ munity. Since the » ulture de¬ partment stays in operation all summer, the students will be working with these plots until the crops are harvested in the fall, and they welcome any vitisort to the school farm during the summer. The students learned from last year's applicationof atrazine that wise use of atrazine as a weed control is a must to make it work economically and safely for the crop to follow. This year's minimum tillage of corn W3S handled the same as last year. The fields were plowed and then planted to corn in the plowed ground — with no cultivation. The big difference in the year's program was a controlled amount of atrazine applied (broadcast) per acre accor¬ ding tothe differences in soil types. It is hoped that this will enable the students to use less atrazine on some soils and more where needed and have a controlled carry over (or residue) for the following crops It is hoped that the students will continue to have the excellent weed kill they had last year. The biggest problem the boys face this year is the volunteer corn which is not affected by atrazine. one field may have to be cultivated once for this reason. Part of the 11 Mis«i.
