Stock-Water Developments: Wells, Springs, and Ponds

Description: "The need for effective utilization of grazing areas and the scarcity of stock water have led to unprecedented activity in the development of water supplies during the last few years as a part of conservation practices in range and pasture areas. Economical construction, planned distribution, and adequacy of stock-watering centers are essential to profitable grazing enterprises. Inadequate coordination of stock-water developments with necessary conservation practices and the improper location or construction of these facilities have made many water supplies unsatisfactory. This bulletin deals with the requirements and development of stock-water supplies suitable for grazing areas." -- p. ii

The Wheat Jointworm and Its Control

Description: Revised edition. "The wheat jointworm is a very small grub which lives in stems of wheat, feeding on the juices of the plant and causing a slight swelling or distortion of the stem above the joint. The egg from which it hatches is laid in the stem by an insect resembling a small black ant with wings. This insect attacks wheat only. The injury which it causes to wheat is very distinct from that caused by the Hessian fly, yet the effects caused by these two insects are often confused by farmers." -- p. 1-2. This bulletin gives a brief outline of the life cycle and the nature of the injury to the plant by the jointworm so that any farmer may readily recognize its work and be able to apply the measures of control herein recommended.
