Linder, Extension Farm Agents (Q) What can 1 do to control insects in my garden? (A) Insects such as cutworms, wireworms, fLea bettle, larvae, white fringed bettle larvae, white grubs and mole crickets can be prevented by applying a insecticide to the soil before planting. Chlordane or diazi- non are the two chemicals nor- mally used. Either may be applied as a spray or as granules and both should be worked into immediately after applying. If Chlordane spray is used, mix 10 tablespoons of 40 per- cent wettable powder in one gal- lon of water -- then apply 2 1/2 gallons of this mixture per 1000 square feet of garden area. If Chlordane granules areused apply 2 pounds of 5 Percent granules per 1,000 square feet. If Diazinon is used, mix 3 table- spoons of 25 percent emulsifi- able concentrate in 1 gallon of water, then apply 2 1/2 gallons per 1,000 square feet of garden area. These materials do not control nematodes. (Q) What is the outlook for high quality soybean seed for planting in 19767 (A) Many of the soybean seed offered for sale in 1976 are likely to be of low germination. This is particularly true of the early maturing varieties. The States of Arkansas and Missis- sippi are claiming to have good supplies of high quality seed. The other Southeastern states including Alabama report that germination is low. According to this revort it would be advis- able to locate and buy good qua- lity soybean seed early. I and had plenty of them on Sun- day, February 8. Among those bringing their best wishes for a happy birth- day were Mr. and Mrs. Doyle Kinsaul, Benjie Scott and Brett of Andalusia; Tim and Ben Bout- well, Myrtice Gorum, Jeneell and Herb Boutwell of Century, Florida; Bessie Shows and John Hamilton Shows of Pensacola Florida; Barry L. Rohan, Lyd- ia and Dondi Rohan, and Edgar R. Shows, all of Montgomery, Al.; Mr. and Mrs. Duane Stag- gers and sons, Jason and Heath of Milton, Florida; Mr. and Mrs. C. B.
