As part of our 75th birthday, we look back at interesting editorial stories during each decade (see 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s).
For fun, we’re also taking a look at the some of the advertising during each decade, since these valuable companies provide the revenue that helps us send you a free magazine.
Check out these advertisements we found when examining back issues from January through December 1985. You’ll find a familiar theme of herbicides saving farmers money. Check out these familiar company and brand names like Lasso, Treflan, Bladex, Prowl, Amiben, Counter, Kinze, IH, Steiger, New Idea, Cargill, Pioneer, DeKalb, Jacques, Lynks, Farm Fans and more.
