These figures relay the following message loud and clear: farm residents must incorporate safe practices in their daily lives in an effort to control these accident losses. Area farmers and garden growers are currently being plagued by fungi which threatens to wipe out crops of bush and pole-type green beans. According to a pamphlet prepared by John Baniecki, WVU extension specialist in plant pathology and entomology, there is no known means of chemical control for the fungi, Fusarium sp. and Rhizoctonia sp. usually referred to as "dry root rot". The first symptoms noticed by the grower are usually a slight dwarfing of the plant and a yellowing of the foliage. Upon close examination, writes Baniecki. the roots of the plant are often found to be brown, or reddish-brown and the discolored area The Department of Labor has a wealth of material available to educate the small farmer in the essentials of safe working practices in the farm industry. Bulletins relating to various farm hazards are available upon request, including: "Guarding and Shielding Farm Equipment", "Tractor Safety Equipment", and "Safe Use of Pesticides". Departmental personnel will be providing free farm safety consultation inspections as well. Safety and Health consultation officers conduct these inspections to analyze work procedures, identify hazardous conditions, and either recommend corrective measures or conduct training designed to remove prevailing threats to safety and health.

Treat Seed - The germinating seed can be protected from root-rot fungi by coating them with a chemical. Some seed can be purchased which has been pre-treated, and this is advisable, but, the grower can do his own treating. Mix one tablespoon of 75% THIRAM or 75% CAFTAN and ROCKY FORK NEWS one ounce of LINDANE and 25% wettable powder per bushel of bean seed. Rough handling of seed reduces germination. Treated seed must not be used for feed or food. A commercial seed protectant can also be used which contains both a fungicide (THIRAM or CAPTAN) and an insecticide [LINDANE).
