time. When storing spray
materials, always keep them
in their original containers
and away from all children,
pets, and livestock. It is best
to have a separate room or
building for pesticide
storage. Wetable powders
are easy to store; however,
emulsions and liquids may
be harmed by freezing
weather. Producers are
urged to follow the label and
instructions in this respect.
It might be necessary to
keep some of them in a
heated building. Be sure
they are not near feed
suplies because accidents
can happen. Pesticides kept
in a room or building under
lock and key is a good way to
prevent costly mistakes and
If you did not get good
weed control this year in
your fields, now would be a
good time to investigate. As
we travel throughout Lan
caster county, we note quite
a variation in the weed
control success. Some fields
are nearly weed-free, while
others are quite weedy. This
can be observed after the
crops have been harvested.
If the weed control program
is being done by a custom
operator, then that person
should be with you to ob
serve the conditions and
to make plans for next year.
In addition to materials,
timing, and weather, please
keep in mind that soil acidity
has a definite part to play in
good herbicide performance.
In sour soils 'most of our
weed killers will not do a
-good job. Take time now to
observe your weed control
