    14—Umcarter Farming, Saturday, June 7, 1975
The National Hay
Association (NHA) has
finalized plans for its 80th
Annual Convention to be held
at the Holiday Inn, Lake
Geneva, Wisconsin, August
John Deere Balers
have more teeth
outside the tractor tires
Heavier hay and bigger cuts mean wider
windrows —so our quiet balers have extra
wide pickups. Pickup on the heavy-duty 346
is 71 inches across (including side flares)
with 144 teeth; 61 inches and 80 teeth on
the 336.
But that’s only half the story. Usable
pickup width—the area that can be used
without driving tractor tires over the
windrow —is the other half.
Pickups on John Deere Balers are offset 10
inches from the bale case. This puts the
pickup out where it’s usable—not behind
the tractor tires.
Stop in and see for yourself.

Our 2-in-1
soybean program can
make you a champion.
This is why we’re recommending a feed & weed program for soybeans
It can supply the exact ratios of N-P-K and micronutrients your soils need
to fully feed your beans And it provides a convenient carrier for preplant
herbicides, taking care of two jobs, accurately, uniformly, in just one
quick trip.
We’re convinced our feed & weed program can do for soybeans what
it does for corn We’d like you to try it We'd like you to grow your best
bean crop ever We’ve got the program to do it

We can do exactly what another
ARCADIAN® dealer did for one state
soybean champion. He combined
his herbicide in a 7-21-21 liquid
i made the SLF® way with POLY-N® and
did two jobs in a single feed & weed
application at2so lbs. per acre. His
I , winning yield was 67 9 bushels.
It’s true, soybeans are good
' scavengers of leftover fertilizer. But if
previous applications have been reduced
in recent years, there’s probably not much
residual fertilizer left to scavenge
