O Not too many years from now our young people will be taking over jobs that will shape and run our country. Whatever jobs they choose.., doctors, lawyers, merchants.., electricity will be needed. As they grow and mature to accept their responsibilities, OG&E will have electricity, because it is our responsibility to keep pace with the growing demands of customers. Their future will include enough electrical energy so that they will have the opportunity to work for a better life. eastern Oklahoma. However, recent surveys conducted by Oklahoma State University indicate the same practice is needed on as much as 30 per cent of the red soil wheatland in central and western Oklahoma. "Wheat is tolerant to acid conditions, so the need has not been so easily noticed," says extension agronomist Billy Tucker at OSU. "However, our surveys show that a number of fields are affected to the extent that an application of lime would provide enough yield increase to be quite profitable." Acid build up occurs in a number of ways -- decaying vegetation, rainfall, and crop- ping which take qualities such as calcium from the soil. "We ha~e known all along that the highest level of agricultural production comes from non-acid soils," Tucker says. "Wheat we suggest is a maintenance program rather than waiting until the Situation deve!npe~ into a real prcblem." On most wheatland, a ton or two per acre will correct the situation for a number of years, he says. "This compares to some farms in the eastern part of the state where five tons or more would be needed to do the job," he adds. "This would almost be like buying a new farm." Tucker says acidity in soils can be detected through normal soil testing. "All county extension direct- ors in the state are informed on how this can be done." he says.
