40 yeors of proof
Since 1940, Gehl has been building field
choppers and forage harvesters with one
thought in mind ...performance. And, year
after year, thousands of satisfied owners
prove that we know how to use that special'
Ized experience to build better machines
Today, Gehl concentrates those 40 years of
chopping know-how into three fuel-efficient,
high-capacity forage harvesters:
Capacity King 1250. The largest capacity
pull-type harvester on the market Gehl’s
exclusive 24” spinner delivery system keeps
forage moving with no cross augers to plug
The giant, 9-knife, 25 1 /2" cylinder gives a
quality cut And the new cutterbar adjustment
is the easiest anywhere. In-head hydraulic
knife sharpener and electric controls are
standard too
New mid-range 1000 gives you the high
capacity you’d expect from the big 21"
cylinder and fast spinner delivery system
Like the 1250, standard features include the
m-head hydraulic knife sharpener, adjustable

Uncaster Farming, Saturday, January 21,1984—D5
meeting in Baltimore,
"Common sense tells them we
cannot return to a subsistence type
of farming, and that’s about what
would happen if we abandon the
use of chemicals,” Cawley con
tinued.
The Secretary further indicated
that the American public isn’t
demanding that agriculture
eliminate the use of chemicals but
that it use them in such a way that
they pose no threat to the en
vironment. He cited as proof of this
a recent Maryland survey in which
80 percent of the respondents said
they would be willing to have their
tax dollars spent in order to
provide incentives to encourage
farmers to undertake conservation
projects aimed at reducing soil
runoff into the Chesapeake Bay.
The major question on the mind
of most Marylanders today is not
who polluted the Bay but who anjl
how are they going to clean it up.
"As for agriculture”, Cawley said,
"we will do it ourselves. We un
derstand our situation better than
anyone else and we already have
experience in dealing with certain
types of pollution problems. The
last think we need is for someone
who doesn’t understand the
problems of agriculture to begin
Marketing on agenda
DOVER, Del. When Delaware
vegetable and potato growers
gather for their sixth annual
meeting Tuesday and Wednesday
at the Sheraton Inn in Dover,
marketing and business
management will be consistent
themes throughout the program.
“The board of directors of the
Delaware Vegetable Growers’
Association felt special emphasis
should be placed on these subjects,
in addition to the standard
production topics,” says
University of Delaware extension
vegetable specialist Ed Kee, who
sat in on the planning sessions for
this year’s Delaware Vegetable
Growers’ meeting.
Aspects of marketing and
finance to be covered during the
two-day event include:

dictating to us with respect to what
we must do in solving them”.
“But, none of us can go it alone”,
said Cawley, “and we must slow
those outside of agriculture that we
are working in good faith.
Whatever system we develop for
dealing with the problem
(pollution) must be one which will
stand the scrutiny of a skeptical
public. We must have confidence in
the system and be proud to put it on
open display for critical
examination.”
TJie Secretary indicated that
Maryland agriculture is well on the
road to the development of such a
system and that control actions
taken to date have received good
public acceptance.
“We fully expect that before
very long Maryland’s agricultural
pollution control program is going
to be pointed out as a model which
other segments of the industry will
be urged to copy”, he concluded.

Society is composed of
