2. Wire stapling pliers are being used by many corn breeders to fasten paper bags on tassels and ear shoots in place of wire clips. The stapled bags are more secure and take less time to put on. The cost of the staples is about the same as for paper clips but more have to be used. (Stapler and staples made by Neva-Clog Products, Inc., Bridgeport, Conn.)
