CORN FROM SOUTH: Seed from the South may prevent a repeat of the disastrous corn blight which ruined much of the U.S. crop last year. Blight-resistant corn was sent from the United States last year for growing far from the blight's reach — to Argentina, where it is summer. Multiplied 250 times, the new seed it produced will be returned to the United States for spring planting. An Argentine farmer at Pergamino, near Buenos Aires, inspects ripening ears. The seed was air-shipped last fall by Cargill, Inc. of Minneapolis.
