How to Control Billbugs Destructive to Cereal and Forage Crops

Description: Revised edition. "Billbugs destroy or injure corn, wheat, rye, barley, oats, timothy, blue grass, Bermuda grass, Johnson grass, rice, sugar cane, peanuts and chufa. The most conspicuous damage by the adult billbugs is done to young corn plants. The most costly damage is undoubtedly that done by the larvae or grubs in cutting the underground portions of plants, especially those grown for hay and pasture. Billbugs have only one generation yearly and are generally dependent on grass sods or wild sedges and rushes. Corn, sugarcane, chufa, and timothy probably are the only crops in which they can perpetuate themselves within the plant tissues. The other host plants admit of inside feeding only during the early part of the grub stage, after which feeding is completed among the fibrous roots. Parasites are valuable natural checks, but their work follows, rather than prevents, crop loss. Clean cultivation, especially the complete elimination of wild sedges and rushes; suitable crop rotations; summer or early fall breaking of cultivated or infested wild sods; early planting of crops menaced by billbugs; and the protection of birds, especially ground feeders, including the bobwhite and the shore birds, are efficient means of preventing crop losses from billbugs. Hand picking has occasionally resulted in effectual control of billbug outbreaks in cornfields and on special turf. Cooperate with your neighbors in active measures for destroying the billbugs." -- p. ii

How to Control Billbugs Destructive to Cereal and Forage Crops

Description: "Billbugs destroy or injure corn, wheat, rye, barley, oats, timothy, blue grass, Bermuda grass, Johnson grass, rice, sugar cane, peanuts and chufa. The best-known form of injury is corn leaf perforation. The principal losses are caused by combined injury by the adult billbugs and their young or larvae. The heaviest losses are probably in hay and pasturage. Billbugs have only one generation yearly and are generally dependent on grass sods or wild sedges and rushes. Corn, sugar cane, chufa, and timothy probably are our only crops in which they can perpetuate themselves within the plant tissues. Clean cultivation, especially the complete elimination of wild sedges and rushes, suitable crop rotations, summer or early fall breaking of cultivated or infested wild sods, early planting of crops menaced by billbugs, and the protection of birds, especially ground feeders, including the bobwhite and the shore birds, are efficient methods for preventing crop losses by billbugs. Parasites are valuable natural checks, but their work follows, rather than prevents, crop loss. Therefore, do not rely upon them to the neglect of control measures, or the results may be disastrous. Cooperate with your neighbors in active measures for destroying the billbugs." -- p. 2

Forage Crops and Their Culture in Northern Nebraska and the Dakotas

Description: "This bulletin deals with those cultivated forage crops that seem of greatest promise for the dry-farming districts of northern Nebraska and the Dakotas west of the ninety-eighth meridian. Frequent crop failures in the more arid portions of these States result from a low annual precipitation, the irregularity of its amount and distribution during the growing season, and high evaporation. Under conditions of extreme drought, cultivated crops can seldom be economically substituted for native vegetation, and the utilization of such lands for grazing and the cutting of wild hay is most generally advisable. Greater forage production on the better lands may be effected by growing certain cultivated legumes, grasses, and roots." -- p. ii.
