     Work by the departments of Agronomy, Agricultural Chemistry,
Horticulture, Aupplied Botany, and Plant Pathology, as well as coopera-
tive work with several divisions of the U.S. Departm-ent of Agriculture
is already under way with this new equipment. At present the studies
are mostly on seedling blight of wheat and corn, cold resistant corn,
onion smut, clover mildew, mosaic diseases, and tobacco problems.
     OVER A I ILLION POUNDS OF PICRIC ACID and about a million blasting
caps are already going into Wisconsin for land clearing purposes.
Of this amount about 200,000 pounds goes into the older southern
counties of the state, where there is greater interest in this material
this year than ever before. The distribution of this material in
spite of the long freight haul from the magazine in New IMexico will
result in a net saving of over $100,000 to farmers of the state,
     It is noteworthy in passing that, of the 2,300,000 pounds of this
material distributed last season, Wisconsin useC'. more than all the
remaining states of the Union.
