New rules allow passing in no passing zones

The fall season means picking pumpkins and apples or checking out the fall colors. It also is a time for slow moving farm equipment on the roads as fall harvest season is underway throughout the state. That means it’s time for all drivers to be especially aware and slow down when encountering slow moving farm equipment.

Successful Winter Wheat Production

Including winter wheat in a farm cropping rotation is an option more grain producers are looking at. University research has shown that corn and soybean yields will increase when wheat is included in the crop rotation. Seed selection should be certified seed that has been germination tested.

Brush Management

I have received calls requesting information on how to manage or control unwanted growth of brush and small trees.

Due to a barrage of advertising, the control most people think of is the use of glyphosate.

Long-term drought effects on trees

Even though we have had a wet spring and early summer, we are continually seeing more trees and shrubs that are dying. I have received a number of calls on maple trees that are dying or that have cracks in the bark with dead areas of bark on the tree. There are a number of elm trees that I have seen that were all leafed out but in the last couple of weeks the leaves have now died back, turned brown and are now falling off.

Utilizing lower value forage

The shortage of forage as a result of the heat and drought of 2012 has resulted in more producers looking at harvesting CRP ground for forage. CRP hay can be used as one source of roughage for helping overwinter the cattle, but it is not without some challenges that need to be addressed to use it with minimal negative impacts to the condition and health of the cattle.
