This is the time of year when the soil is most vulnerable to wind erosion. Wind erosion occurs when sGil is loose, dry and finely granulated. The wind will blow valuable topsoil from a field or area when the surface is smooth, vegetative cover is sparse or absent and when the area is sufficiently large. Blowing soil can cause significant damage to growing crops especially when plants are young. Productivity is also decreased as the wind carries off the topsoil that contains organic matter and plant nutrients. When you see this happening know that there is an economical way to control wind erosion. This can be achieved by using a combination of windbreaks and conservation tilMge. Windbreaks work by reducing wind speed thus sheltering the Wetlands Bill clears two News Column Rep.

The protected area generally extends 10 to 12 times to the height on the windward side. For example have you ever noticed how after a snowstorm the snow cover will be deeper on either side of a field windbreak. Just as snow is deposited in areas where wind speed is reduced, so the soil is kept from being eroded by harsh winds. If we only had nice warm gentle " breezes there would be no need for windbreaks, however, unfortunately we have many days of blasts and gales of hot dry winds, that cause the spring dust storms. The planting of field windbreaks and use of conservation tillage are two practices which can significantly reduce the amount of soil we lose to wind erosion. more committees changes in current law: *authorizes gaming organizations to spend up to $150 in gambling profits monthly to maintain and repair its building and to pay for utilities; *repeals the requirement for an annual audit; *reduces the rate of tax paid on pull-tabs and tipboards from two percent to 1.8 percent of ideal Cottonwood Historical Society Anna Bertilsen of Minneapolis the state facing a budget shortfall, gross profits; Museum in Windom Sunday was a Monday and Tuesday visitor the bonding could be in danger of *requires the director of the afternoon.
