4-H’ers get a taste of college life while participating in a clothing competition COLUMBIA — Nikki Gooden, from Saline County, was one of 104 Missouri youth that participated in a clothing construction and consumerism contest during State 4-H Fashion Review on Oct. 8 on the University of Missouri campus. “This contest helps youth enhance their skills and knowledge about sewing, clothing selection, knitting and crotchet and the importance of setting and achieving

goals,” said Alison Copeland, MU 4H youth specialist. “State 4-H Fashion Revue is also about connecting young people to the research, education and other efforts MU is doing in these areas. We want them to see what they might be able to do with their interests in college.” The participants, ranging in ages 8-18, participated in a local fashion revue competition either in their county or regional area that qualified

them to participate in the state contest. Fashion Revue participants also gathered in the Memorial Union on the campus to learn about other topics such as garment manufacturing processes and interacting with individuals with special needs. Pictured left is Nikki Gooden, who placed first in the Clothes You Buy— Junior Division. She received a $25 JC Penney gift card.

Stink bugs try to find warm home for winter by Linda Geist MU Extension

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Brown marmorated stink bugs are hunting homes for the winter. The agriculture pests are a nasty nuisance indoors, but are otherwise harmless to pets and humans, say University of Missouri Extension entomologist Richard Houseman and Lincoln University Cooperative Extension integrated pest management specialist Jaime Pinero. They do not bite, sting, suck blood or spread disease.

But they stink and want to hibernate in your warm quarters this winter. When spring comes, they will go outside to feed off agricultural crops. An ounce of prevention is the best medicine for keeping stink bugs and other insect pests such as the multicolored Asian lady beetle at bay. Put screens over windows, doors and vents. Caulk cracks in windows and door frames. Take special care when removing window air conditioner units. Insecticide foggers will not kill stink bugs inside, says Houseman. Remove live and dead stink bugs from indoor areas with a vacuum cleaner. Your cleaner may take on an odor from bugs letting off their smell when disturbed. Virginia Tech researchers found that bugs could be trapped by filling a foil roasting pan with water and a few drops of dish soap. Point a light into the pan and place the pan in an area where the bug is present. The light attracts bugs, which will fall into the soapy water and drown. (To watch a video demonstration, go to Since 2013, the brown marmorated stink bug has spread throughout the state. Missouri is the 42nd state to report the bug. It appears most commonly in the eastern and southern parts of the state, especially urban St. Louis. It is about 5/8 inch long and marbled brown. Its antennae have two white bands and its legs are marbled brown with faint white bands. The membranous parts of its forewings have dark bands at the tip. There is a banded abdominal edge to the side of its wings. The bug damages fruit, vegetable and ornamental crops. It also harms soybean and corn.

Minor bulbs make major impact in spring gardens

by Linda Geist MU Extension

COLUMBIA — Minor bulbs make a major splash in early spring. Just when you think winter will never end, minor bulbs burst with color and hope, said University of Missouri Extension horticulturist David Trinklein. Minor bulbs, such as crocuses and snowdrops, are the first harbingers of spring. Their small flowers give us a sneak preview of what is to come and whet our appetites for showier tulips, narcissus and hyacinths, said Trinklein. “Minor bulbs signal we made it through another winter,” he said. Minor bulbs do not provide the big splash of color that the flowers that follow them have. However, they have their own charm. Many are blue, a rare color in flowers. They naturalize well in Missouri. This simply means that, given good growing conditions, they come back year after year. They are relatively inexpensive and are available at many retail outlets, including garden centers and big-box stores. For showy color, plant bulbs en masse, in groups of 10 or 12, says Trinklein. Plant in drifts, or groups of 50 or more, to pack a powerful punch of color. Space about 3 inches apart. Plant at a depth of about three times the bulb’s height. Plant in loose, well-drained soil to which organic matter has been incorporated. Good soil drainage is extremely important for success with any flowering bulb, Trinklein emphasized. For this reason, bulbs do well in rock gardens and on raised mounds that tend to drain well. Avoid planting on the north side of your house or other areas with poor light. Crocus is the best-known minor bulb. Its cup-shaped, solitary salver-form flowers taper off into a narrow tube. They are available in a variety of colors, including yellow, white, mauve and lilac. Hybrids with striped petals add variety. Crocuses grow 4-5 inches tall and flower in late winter. Siberian squill bears small spikes of drooping, bright blue flowers. Native to woodland areas, it prefers a sunny setting but tolerates partial shade. Its strap-like leaves are about one-half inch wide and grow to about 6 inches tall. Glory-of-the-snow is another spring favorite. Their small flowers are blue with centers that blend to pale blue or white. The central stamens are yellow. Their ribbon-like leaves grow to 6 inches in length. They naturalize well and make a spectacular display when planted en masse. Snowdrop is among the earliest flowers to announce spring’s arrival. Its white flowers droop from the flower stem held slightly above the foliage. They

bear a green crescent at the tip. Grape hyacinths bear blue flowers that resemble small urns. They are densely attached to flower stalks 6-9 inches tall. Grape hyacinths do well in full sun or partial shade. “Seas of grape hyacinths, combined with yellow cultivars of larger Dutch bulbs such as narcissus and tulip, are spectacular to view,” Trinklein said. Netted (Dutch) iris is a dwarf iris that forms true bulbs. Its flower is typical of any iris and consists of three inner and three outer segments. They rarely grow more than 10 inches tall. Flowers appear in late February or early March. They make an excellent choice for sunny borders or along bodies of water, said Trinklein. Winter aconite probably is the least known of the minor bulbs. It produces yellow, buttercup-like flowers on stalks 3-4 inches in height. A collar of leaflike bracts subtends each flower. Flowers appear in late winter and early spring, thus rivaling crocus as a harbinger of spring. Leaves emerge only after flowering has concluded. Winter aconite flourishes in full sun or partial shade and naturalizes well in the Midwest.

e at really stress soil health. Without healthy soil, plants lack the right nutrients and environment to root, grow and yield well. Fall is an excellent time for growers to take a soil health appraisal on their farms and develop a strategy to start or continue improving their soil's health. Oftentimes, soil health discussions center on organic matter. Soluble carbon, however, is another factor to consider. It serves as a food source for soil microbial life. Earlier this year, we at introduced our Dinosaur Dirt product. As a humic and fulvic acid, Dinosaur Dirt supplies soluble carbon and energy that soil biology needs to do well. Plus, Dinosaur Dirt is an organic product. Humates originate from naturally occurring ore. Specifically, Dinosaur Dirt is a coal mining byproduct that undergoes further processing to produce the soil amendment. Applying Dinosaur Dirt can support soil microbial life in performing many critical functions. Among them are enhancing nutrient availability. For example, healthy soil fungi can improve a P1 soil test result as they convert rock phosphate into plant-available phosphorus. A new tool named the Haney test can improve growers' understanding about benefits realized from soil health enhancement efforts that they choose to implement. A Haney test output shares several metrics. Those include the Solvita 1 Day CO2-C value and water-extractable organic carbon level. CO2-C emitted by soil microbes has significance because a higher carbon dioxide level suggests that the soil has more beneficial microbial activity, according to Midwest Laboratories. The organic

carbon reading can indicate whether the soil has sufficient carbon for soil microbes. Unlike other soil tests, the Haney test reports soil nutrients in terms of those available, not just present, to plants. Plus, an overall soil health composite score accompanies a Haney test output. Recently, we at used the Haney test to compare a check to acreage that had our Dinosaur Dirt applied at 100 pounds per acre six months before the test. Results showed that Dinosaur Dirt improved availability of nutrients such as phosphorus and magnesium. Plus, applying Dinosaur Dirt improved the overall soil health composite score by roughly 14 percent relative to the check. After a harvest, Dinosaur Dirt may also have value by supporting field residue degradation. Residue has its benefits. For example, it can curtail erosion, hold nutrients in place and support soil moisture retention. Too much residue, however, may cause producers to encounter challenges like delayed planting in the next spring, soil-borne diseases and machinery use issues, based on a guide from the Illinois Soybean Association. Dinosaur Dirt's role in field residue control is supplying energy to soil microbial life, which could also use the field residues as a food source. Ultimately, soil biology feeding on field residues would contribute to residue breakdown. Essentially, Dinosaur Dirt can help to facilitate the process. Soil health development can be time-intensive, so we suggest beginning a soil health program this fall if you haven't already created or adopted one. While trialing various soil health strategies, growers may consider the Haney test as a tool to benchmark soil health enhancement and identify practices that make the biggest difference in improving certain soil health indicators.

Now’s the time to improve soil health

For growers who'd like to start a soil healthfocused program, we at recommend using Dinosaur Dirt at 200 pounds per acre this fall. If adding Dinosaur Dirt to an existing program, then the application rate may vary somewhat depending on soil conditions. After a fall application, liquid or dry applications in the following spring would offer additional supplementation. Then, in successive years, growers can shift to maintenance-driven applications that sustain humic acid and soluble carbon levels. Note that sandy soils or soils with poor organic matter may exhibit the most pronounced response after a Dinosaur Dirt application. However, even soils with suitable organic matter levels may benefit. For more information about soil health improvement recommendations or Dinosaur Dirt, call me anytime at 816-773-6018.

November Outlooks


Weather Forecast

Mild, often dry weather across the Plains and Midwest also promoted fieldwork, including summer crop harvesting. A few areas from the mid-South into the Great Lakes region received mid-week rainfall totals in excess of an inch. Elsewhere, the season’s first barrage of Pacific storms arrived in the Northwest, drenching coastal areas but providing beneficial moisture for rangeland, pastures, and winter grains. However, only minor flooding occurred due to antecedent warmth and dryness. Significant precipitation spread as far south as northern California and eastward into the northern Rockies. Generally cool conditions prevailed across the nation’s northern tier and the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic States.

Midwest Bulletin


Soil Temperature

Soil Moisture

Showers and thunderstorms should develop in the vicinity of a cold front from the Ohio Valley to the southeastern Plains. Locally heavy rain will shift into the lower Great Lakes region on Thursday and the Northeast on Friday. Storm-total rainfall could reach 1 to 2 inches in the Ohio Valley and 2 to 5 inches in the Northeast—especially near the Canadian border. Meanwhile, mild but showery weather will prevail in the Pacific Northwest, where 5-day totals could reach 2 to 5 inches. Most of the remainder of the country will remain dry, with cool air arriving in the East and warmth returning across much of the western and central U.S. by week’s end. The NWS 6- to 10-day outlook for October 24 - 28 calls for the likelihood of near- to above-normal temperatures nationwide, except for cooler-than-normal conditions in northern California and the Northeast. Meanwhile, below- normal precipitation from the southern Plains into the eastern U.S. will contrast with wetter-than-normal weather in the western and north-central U.S.
