Page 1 0 Cheney Free Press Thursday, June 3, 1982 Farm News Spangle family earns conservation honors Mr. and Mrs. Rich Baden, who farm east of Spangle, Washington have been selected as the 1982 Conservation Farm Family by the Spokane County Conser vation District. There will be a twilight tour of the Baden farm on June 8, beginning at 7 p.m., sponsored by the Conservation District. Friends, neighbors and people interested in soil and water conserva- tion are invited to attend the tour. The farm is located approximately 3% miles east of Spangle on Watt Road to Beyers Road. Baden has been farming the home place with his father, Chet, since 1977. In addition to the farming operation, he owns and operates Agricot Company, a Spokane-based business where he is designing special machinery for 'con- servation tillage and other farm uses. His father has been farming the place since 1946, and they moved to the present location in 1964. The family farms about 1,000 acres of cropland, which are devoted primarily to winter wheat and lentils--in about a 20-inch rainfall area. They raise some Bromegrass and Kentucky Bluegrass for seed and are working more grass into the rotation. He has tried raising sunflowers as a seed/oil crop. He also is incorporating divided slope farming into the operation. Baden said that "1977 was the last year for summer fallow on the farm." Since then, he has used annual crop- ping, (raising a crop each year in order to have a place for winter moisture to be stored) as the rotation. Rich used a tillager to keep crop residues on the soil surface. On the lentil ground, he broadcasts dry fertil- izer, then works the soil with the tillager about eight inches deep so that the fertilizer is incorporated in the top four inches of the soil. Then he packs it with a transpacker with all the previous crop residue left on top. This allows the winter wheat seed to germinate quicker and emerge faster to get a good growth going into the winter. He works his stubble ground in the fall with the tillager for about three to four years in a row, then he uses a moldboard plow the fifth year to control cheatgrass and windgrass. He tries to "pick a year when I can plow the cheatgrass seed deep." He feels that to control erosion you need to keep the rain where it falls on the field. He does have some grassed waterway to control excess water leaving the fields. Rich and his wife, Patricia, son, Mike, and daughter, Jennifer, live in the Spokane Valley. Rich is very active in the Toastmasters, belonging to both the Valley Club and the Country Club. He has been president and the area governor. He also is a member of the Washington Wheat Growers Associa- tion, Crop Improvement Association and Grass Growers Association Saving soil The Rich Baden family of Spangle recently was named as the 1982 Conservation Farm Family by the Conservation District. From left are Chet, Fran, Patricia and Rich, with Jennifer and Mike pictured in the foreground. Farmers cut back wheat production bushels, down two percent from 1981. The largest Hard Red Winter harvest ever is forecast because record and near-record crops in Kansas and Okla- homa will more than compensate for smaller harvests in other States On the other hand, prospective Soft Red Wint- er production is likely to be down about 10 percent from last year's record 673 million bushels because above-normal winterkill in major northern areas increased acreage abandonment. Re- U.S. wheat growers will likely har- vest fewer acres in 1982, reflecting voluntary response to the government's 15-percent acreage reduction program; however, generally favorable winter and spring weather could contribute to near-record yields and result in total 1982 wheat production of around 2.65 billion bushels, only five percent below last year's record. Winter wheat harvest is beginning, and the crop is estimated at 2.06 billion Foley to seek input J u n e 14 o n farm t n g Master Gardening tips Congressman Tom Foley heads a House Agriculture Subcommittee that will hold a public hearing in Spokane June 14 to get comments from farmers about how current farm programs are working: continuing low prices, increased pro- duction costs, high interest rates and declining exports. The subcommittee wants to get grassroots opinions directly from the farmers to find out whether they believe the current price support pro- grams are working effectively. Also, the panel will want to find out what far- mers think should be done to improve the export market for Americancrops. Persons who want to testify at the Spokane .Hearing should contact Gene Moos, staff director, House Agriculture Subcommittee on Wheat, Soybeans, and Feed Grains, 1301 Longworth House Office Building, Washimzton, D.C., 20515 (Telephone number:, (202) 225-6396). The Subcommittee on Wheat, Soy- beans, and Feed Grains will start the hearing at 8 a.m. in the Student Union Building at Spokane Falls Community College. Witnesses from the four North- west states are expected to testify at the Spokane hearing, which is the last of four hearings that had been schedul- ed at various parts of the nation. Foley said the panel will be looking at ways to improve farm income, which has suffered in recent years from Aglforestry class slated The seminars will be conducted at various places throughout the state. Other travel in conjunction with the seminars takes participants out of the state. Candidates must have lived in Wash- ingston for at least a year and must demonstrate a commitment to the state's agriculture and forestry in- dustry. The program is financed with contributions from individuals and businesses in the state. Field costs are paid for by participants. Application forms or more informa- tion may be obtained by writing or calling Dr. Arthur Peterson at the Foundation office, 3300 Carpenter Road, S.E. #71-C, Olympia 98503 or call (206) 456-0334. The Washington Agriculture and Forestry Foundation is once again seeking students for a class in leader- ship development. Like the four previous classes, mem- bers of the new group will be learning about the major issues facing the state's two gigantic industries--forestry and agriculture. The classes are de- signed to strengthen leadership quali- ties among persons in these fields and those in related occupations. Applications will be accepted until July 31 for the two-year program. From the applicants, foundation officials will select 30 men and women to go through the intensive training. Two classes already have graduated. A third will finish in May. The fourth will continue its seminar program next year. By Spokane County Master Gardener A place to relax on a hot summer day when the world is against you is a sweet smelling shady retreat.! There are shady areas in everyone's yard s O it is up to the individual to plant shade loving, fragrant flowers to complete the idyllic spot. No plant will grow in total darkness; however, a number will grow in partial shade, and a few actually prefer total shade. As in all horticulture endeavors, soil preparation is of paramount import- ance and shaded places certainly are no be replanted each year. Other perennials that are hardy in this region and do well in either partial or full shade are the plaintain lily, also know as hosta and the daylilly. Not all varieties have fragrant flowers. They vary in size from dwarfs with two-inch leaves to jumbos that have leaves two feet across. Pick the size you like and the one that will fit your space. Every partia!lyhaded area should have some anemones for long lasting color. The flowers don't have an odor and the plants may need some cover to exception. Most plants like soil that is survive the winters in this region, but well drained, has a high Percentage of organic matter such as compost that provides nutrients and conserves mois- ture. A small soil testing kit that is available in garden stores can return dividends by telling ,the gardener whether the soil needs commercial fertilizer. Plants that grow well in total shade, and one that everyone likes are the ferns. They don't produce flowers but their foliage is super attractive and they do create an earthy odor that is very pleasing even to most people that complain about hayfever. Further- more, a feature that appeals to the "Lazy Gardener '' is they don't have to that little bit of work is worth the effort. The flowers and plants mentioned are by no means a complete list of peren- nials that do well in shade. Don't forget some of the better-known annuals for nice smell, like the sweat pea and sweet william. Impatiens do exceptionally well in full shade, and all varieties of pansy can be raised by anyone. Finally, some unknown philosopher is credited with the advice that youngs- ters should be encouraged to do garden- ing before they get old enough to consider it work. By the time they ,get older, they'll like it and any dirt they pick up.along the way is the kind that can be handled with soap and water duced harvested acreage and yield prospects will also cause White wheat production to be down--about 15 per- cent. Substantial program compliance is likely to reduce the 1982 spring wheat harvest from a year ago. Early season supply/demand pros- pects for U.S. wheat in 1982/83 are for another year ef record supplies, with exports below this year's record 1.8 billion bushels and domestic disappear- ance unchanged. The result would be another buildup in carry-over stocks, with grain under CCC ownership or in the farmer-owned reserve making up the major portion. Under these condi- tions, the average farm price may be only slightly better than 1981/82's $3.70 a bushel, likely ranging from $3.60 and $4. If prices fall below the $4.05-a-bushel target price, participants in the 1982 acreage reduction program will receive deficiency payments. Early prospects for world wheat output in 1982/83 suggest that pro- duction may be up somewhat from last year's record 453 million metric tons. Combined with an increase in world carrying stocks, the forecast output would make the global wheat supply for 1982/83 more than ample to accomodate continued expansioa in c0hsumptioa: Hourly Help Or Live-In Nurses Aide, Homemakers, and Chore Person 2- 7 Days a Week QUALITY CARE "The Complete Nursing Service" 1982 LMSB. $ DANNY GAITHER IN CONCERT FRIDAY JUNE 18, 7:30 P.M. l of America's best-loved Enjoy one GOSPEL SINGERS, along with Band Ensemble.
