Pond Sealing Again Is Conservation Practice Pond sealing will again be an Agricubtural conservation practice for which farmers may receive as sistance in !959. This practice under the super- vision of Soil Conservation Ser- vice technicians was tried in Jeff erson County for the first time last year. Results so far indicate the practice to be 100 percent suc cessful. A pond is treated in the follow- ing manner: First the site must be dry enough for the operation o[ a tractor and disc. The bottom and sides are disced or plowed to a dep th of approx, six inches, one pound of Tetra-'polyphosphate to twenty square feet of surface is then spread evenly ovr the sur- face. The area is then disced 'to mix the material and soil thor- oughly. The job is completed by rolling or packing the disturbed area as much ,as possible with a truck or trac~tor. For more information on this practice or if you have a pond that needs rtreating contact Soil Conservation Service technicians George L. Cole or George E. Tabb.
