Moreover, continued Roll Call, “Combined with the hours devoted to media relations, the numbers grew to 26 percent of time spent on self-promotion when in Washington and 32 percent allocated that way in their districts.” So, if “self-promotion” consumed one in four of those in-D.C. “work” days, House members actually worked just 26 days so far this year on the people’s business; the Senate, 38. The rest of the time our elected officials were either dealing with personal campaign issues or personally trolling for campaign contributions. The newspaper hung some hard numbers on this perpetual political

pursuit, too. “… (T)he average House member raised $1.6 million for the most recent campaign — or $2,200 every 24 hours from Election Day 2010 until Election Day 2012. For the 25 senators who sought re-election, the figures are even more staggering ... an ‘in-cycle’ pace approaching $16,000 a day.” All this campaign money — collectively, 2012 Congressional races cost $3.7 billion; in 2000, those same races cost $1.7 billion — hasn’t bought happiness. It has, however, bought a lot of public debt. Buckets and buckets of public debt. From the 2000 election through the 2012 election, the U.S. federal deficit, in round numbers, climbed from $5.8 trillion to $14.3 trillion. See GUEBERT, pg. 4A

You and I own some piece of this federal mess GUEBERT, from pg. 3A No White House or Congressional caucus can deny patrimony to the increase. About $6.1 trillion of it was added by Congress during the Bush administration’s eight years; nearly $3 trillion was added in the Obama administration’s first three budget years. (Another trillion arrives this year.) That means, of course, that everyone on opposite ends of Pennsylvania Avenue for the past 12 years — presidents and senators, Republicans and Democrats, men and women, plow horses and show horses — own some piece of today’s federal budget mess. More directly, so do you and I. We are the ones who elected these political stars and stiffs; they are our “representatives.” That makes us the true owners, the actual people where the buck stops, behind yesterday’s debt and today’s budget debacle. It’s us out here, not them out there. After all, no one in any Congress or any White House ever asked for federally subsidized crop insurance or designed a decoupled direct farm program payment scheme or chose to protect one Dakota wetland. You and I did that; Congress — which can only find its shiny backside because we gave it the mirror — didn’t. What now? Should we cut a 75-year-old’s Social Security

Letter: Stability relies on marriage definition To the Editor: My concern for writing this letter, is the future meaning of marriage, and how this definition will effect the stability of the family as the building block of our state’s society. It is not the gays, as humans with dignity as God has created, that I am opposed to, rather it their homosexual sex act that I disagree with. It’s the old saying “love the person, hate the act.” I equate sex between two homosexuals, of the same sexes, to be similar to sex between a heterosexual male and female, with the heterosexuals using contraception. Nether relationship is open to children. Both are morally wrong. Where as, there is a difference when the heterosexual couple is married and does not use contraception, their sex act is now open to the creation of children. No matter what a homosexual relationship is called, their sex act will never create children. We hear, what about these two old people, who

wish to get married? When they are too old to propagate new life, do we say their marriage is valid? Yes it is, as long as any sex they may have is open to children, their marriage is valid. We hear of two homosexuals who love each other and because of this love they should be allowed to be married. Sense sex in their marriage will never propagate children, the love that they have for each other is an emotional love, based on self gratification. History tells us over and over again, emotional love soon looses its meaning and disappears. Emotional love should not be used as a basis for any marriage. It is this openness to children of a sex act between one male and one female who are married that forms a family. It is this family unit which is the building block of any society. No matter what their relationship is called, the sex act of homosexuals will never create children, consequently there will never be this building block that is needed to maintain the future of a stable and self-sustaining society. The future stability of Minnesota’s social structure depends on family units, made up of moms and dads with children. Tell our state legislators, it is their need of understanding, of the makeup, of a solid family structure, that is so critical, in making a wise vote on this marriage definition issue.

Worry about the sun, not the blessings of warming WARMING, from pg. 5A global heating and cooling cycle. While the modern warming indicates a gradual warming will take place over the next couple of hundred years the temperature within that reality will spurt up and down 30 years at a stretch. Let me get this straight. We don’t know why the Little Ice Age ended unless it was the Dansgaard-Oeschger cycle.We all agree the temperatures warmed from 1860-80 and 1910-40 because of the PDO cycle. It did not warm in a pattern statistically different in 1975-98. Still, we know for virtually certain that 1975-98 was due to CO2. Thus our concern for the public and our grandchildren forces us to tax people trillions of dollars, and consign them to the mercies of hugely expensive and highly erratic energy sources that won’t keep the

lights on in the hospitals or the food in our freezers cold. The Third World will be forbidden to burn coal, their only potential source of modern economic growth. We will never ever use the nuclear power that the Greens hate even though it emits no CO2. Now I understand. But I wonder why no one is worried that each “warm” period is progressively cooler. How long before our sun wears out? Worry about that before you worry about the blessings of the Modern Warming.

Iowa sheep assessment stays the same

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship recently certified the results from the Iowa sheep assessment referendum that was held Feb. 25 to March 15 of all eligible Iowa sheep producers. The assessment will stay at $0.10 per head after a simple majority of producers that voted did not support raising the assessment to $0.25 per head. The second question on the referendum which would have allowed the Iowa Sheep and Wool Promotion Board, beginning in 2016, to change the assessment rate by $0.05 every

three years, was also defeated. In addition to the current assessment of $0.10 per head on each sheep sold by a producer, there is also an assessment of $0.02 per pound of wool sold by a producer which was not impacted by the referendum. The Iowa Sheep and Wool promotion board is governed by Iowa Code Chapter 182, which was initially passed in 1985 and was updated last year to allow for the referendum to increase the assessment rate.

the expectation to keep safety first. “Careful planning to keep people safe can avoid a second disaster.” Cain said farmers and other operators should have two strategies: a plan for how to safeguard lives and equipment from a disaster and another for how best to respond to one. Purdue Extension has publications to help in disaster planning and response, such as “Plan Today for Tomorrow’s Flood”; a “Flood Response Plan for Agricultural Retailers”, which includes advice that also applies to farm operations. Among the components of a good disaster plan and response strategy: • Designate a leader. • Make sure employees know their roles during an emergency. • Update employee contact information. • Have an exit strategy and account

With the arrival of spring comes greater chances of floods and tornadoes that farmers and other agricultural business owners should plan for while avoiding any temptation to “risk it all to save the barn” during a disaster, a Purdue Extension disaster education specialist said. Their primary concern should be for the safety of family and employees, said Steve Cain, homeland security project director for the Purdue Extension Disaster Education Network. “In a disaster, planning for people’s safety is first,” Cain said. “Unless you have planned for disaster, you may take steps during one that actually put people at risk.” He said family members and employees, for instance, should have clear instructions not to drive recklessly on roads during or after a storm, such as amid rising floodwaters, or operate equipment haphazardly in a hurry. “That’s not only important from a human well-being standpoint, but it’s also important from a liability standpoint,” Cain said. “Operating with a mindset of ‘risk it all to save the barn’ could put your operation at a higher liability if someone were seriously injured or died while reacting to a natural disaster because they didn’t have

“Where Farm and Family Meet”


U of M vineyard manager provides grape pointers By DICK HAGEN The Land Staff Writer John Thull, vineyard manager at the University of Minnesota Horticultural Research Center at Chaska, said the interest in growing grapes and making wine continues across Minnesota. Here are excerpts from a ques- John Thull tion-and-answer session with Thull at the winter conference of the Minnesota Grape Growers Association at the end of February. Q: As you talk with new growers and wannabe growers, what are the most common mistakes? Thull: I think soil type is first consideration. We’re often planting new vineyards on “over-fertile” soils. This results in over-vigorous vines producing too much foliage. You end up with vines that are not in balance. You may still be getting nice fruit set but the canopy is out of control. Q: What is next on the “what-to-do” list for rookies? Thull: Site selection. Heavier and poorly drained soils aren’t so good. The vines don’t harden up as

well so their winter hardiness is compromised. Think about the vine as having antifreeze in its system but if it doesn’t dry out and harden up during the fall season, that antifreeze is diluted. And that potentially could be some frost damage. Q: The 2012 season was extremely hot and dry. Is this a perfect scenario for vines hardening up prior to winter? Thull: Yes, the weather last season did set the stage for minimum amount of winter injury provided the drought did not stress the vines too far. Also the 2012 winter was unusually mild so vines stayed healthy and got off to an early start last spring. We’ve had some below-zero weather this season but because vines had a long, dry fall I believe most Minnesota vineyards hardened up and will be in good shape this spring if they weren’t over cropped or too stressed last year.

Q: Because of the cold hardy genetics of varieties developed at the research center are new vineyards being established further north in Minnesota? Thull: Yes, that’s happening. It’s a basic question of how many heat units can you accumulate in a given area and how cold-tolerant the genetics allows the vine to be. Our Minnesota varieties have good winter hardiness. But as we move north across the state we have a shorter growing season and spring frost dates are perhaps more unpredictable. At some point too cold is just too cold. Q: How many vines should a newcomer consider for his/her vineyard? Thull: Getting a vineyard established can be challenging. Maybe an acre or less so you have some time to learn might be good strategy. Even just a couple hundred vines might be “busy enough” for that first couple of seasons. But wineries like to buy from larger vineyards like five to 10 acres. The key is talking with your potential winery before you plant so they and you both understand what’s ahead. Wineries want to cooperate. They can coordinate your grapes with grapes from other area vineyards. When they know the chemistry of the grapes from your vineyard they often can blend with similar grapes. Q: So what varieties should you start with? Thull: That of course is a personal choice. We now have four released varieties: Frontenac, Frontenac gris, La Crescent and Marquette. Our program involves approximately 12,000 experimental vines. See THULL, pg. 15A

Wine consumption, Midwest grapes on the rise tinual opportunity for more vineyards and, logically, more wineries as well,” said Ronald Barnes, Minnesota Grape Growers Association president. Interviewed at the Jan. 26 University of Minnesota Research Update event at the U of M Landscape Arboretum in Chaska, Barnes said the quality of wine being produced by several Minnesota wineries competes vigorously with branded wines from other parts of America. “We’re still young as an industry but we do have some exceptional wineries. And we’re seeing significant increases in quality of grapes especially by the larger vineyard operators who realize quality is just as important, perhaps even more important, than quantity of production.” He said there was strong attendance by both wine makers and vineyard enthusiasts at the Jan. 26 event. Even more significant is the growing attendance at the MGGA’s annual Cold Climate Conference, which this year was Feb. 21-23 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in downtown St.

2012 produced 444,841 gallons of wine. In 2010, Iowa had 95 wineries. The Iowa Department of Economic Development has vigorously assisted in the growth of the Iowa wine industry. Wines are sold in food stores in Iowa plus liquor establishments; over half of Iowa wine is sold wholesale to retail outlets. Relating to the 2012 season, U of M Horticulturist Peter Hemstad said temperatures dipped below zero only three times so there was no winter damage to vines. March was the warmest on record at the university’s horticultural research center near Chaska. Two March days of 80 F See GRAPES, pg. 18A

Paul. “This event now draws grape growers from across Minnesota plus several neighboring states. The trade show has vendors from across America. So the enthusiasm for grape farming and marketing Minnesota-produced wines keeps ramping up.” Minnesota now has 41 licensed wineries; six years ago there were only eight. Acres of Minnesota land devoted to growing grapes is estimated to now be about 900. Vineyards will never be a serious competitor for Minnesota crop land, but you don’t need a piece of prime “corn-soybean” soil to grow great grapes. In fact lighter, silty clay soils that are well-drained and moderately sloped to the south are preferred. Iowa now has 101 wineries, which in

Ronald Barnes In fact, data from Iowa State University Extension viticulturist Michael White indicates wine consumption in America last year went up 0.4 gallon per person while beer drinkers reduced their appetite by 1.18 gallons per person. Over the past 10 years America’s drinking habits have changed considerably. Coffee, milk, beer, soft drinks, juice and power drinks are all down. Bottled water has enjoyed the largest gain in consumption, but wine, spirits and tea consumption also have increased. What does this mean to the Minnesota grape growers industry? “We have con-

Starter grape is personal choice, but keep it simple

FRUSTRATION GOT THE BEST OF YOU?

Q: What’s the role of nitrogen and potash? Thull: Potassium is important for many functions in a vine. Potassium is an ion that gets into the vascular tissue through water uptake by the roots. This is a macro nutrient that is generally adequate in the soil. However in higher-pH soils the potassium ion is locked up in the soil. You can correct by spreading a potassium granular fertilizer every couple of years between the rows. Or you can apply some foliar products to give that vine a boost in hardiness. Q: Is foliar feeding with selected

products recommended or a waste of time and money? Thull: Again that depends upon the health of your vines, and your site. Some people get benefits; some don’t. Tissue testing might be helpful but these tissue samples are standardized against other varietals so they don’t always translate well to these newer varieties that we’re dealing with in this cold weather climate. Q: Black rot fried a few vine yards last season. Any precautions?

years or more. Some people with older vineyards do replace some of their vines with newer releases. You need some horsepower and a skid loader to rip out those old vines. They root deep. Q: What is the desired row spacing and spacing within the row? Thull: That’s very much site dependent. Ten feet aisle spacing between rows and eight-foot spacing within the row is fairly standard. This somewhat depends upon what type of equipment you’ll be working with. Also, if you’re in fertile soils and handling vigorously growing vines space is necessary because there’s a lot of shading. Much of the vine is in shaded, more humid conditions which tends to make your vineyard more disease-prone. You’ve got to know the growth habit of your varieties to better determine spacing. Q: Is soil testing of your vineyard recommended? Thull: It’s good to get some baseline information about your soil. And that includes organic matter and pH (acidity) levels. That relates to how much nitrogen is getting released as mineralization occurs within the soil. Soil pH is important to understand which varieties will work best. Certain varieties don’t do well on high-pH soils.

THE LAND, MARCH 29, 2013

THULL, from pg. 12A Over 3,000 vines are planted each year for rigorous evaluation. I suggest keeping it simple to a couple of hardy varieties. Besides our four University of Minnesota releases there are also Elmer Swenson genetics. And you can access nursery vines from other sources. But the key is checking with your local winery as to their preferred varieties. Q: Should Marquette, a red wine introduced in 2006, be a consideration? Thull: Yes, I would say definitely. There’s a lot of interest in the Marquette and wine makers are really starting to understand the chemistry of this grape. Marquette has good resistance to downy mildew, powdery mildew and black rot. Plus its open, orderly growth habit eases vine canopy management. Q: It’s no problem spending a few hundred dollars to start up a vine yard. What’s the longevity? Thull: A vineyard can last a long time. We have vines over 30 years old. You may have to do a trunk replacement occasionally, much like we do with our hips or knees as we get older. In essence when you plant a vineyard anticipate it lasting through your generation meaning 30

labels. Mancozeb has a strict 66-day preharvest interval. Check out the Small Fruit and Grape Spray Guide 2013 for more options. I’d suggest a second spraying before the bloom if you have a dirty vineyard (quite a few disease issues); a third spraying after the bloom (about two weeks later) and then a cover spray the middle of summer to keep your vineyard clean. Q: Is weed control important? Thull: We use systemic herbicides such as Roundup. It’s quite effective. You’re only spraying a narrow swath beneath the vine. But I think it’s good to alternate your herbicides meaning don’t use Roundup every time. A good contact herbicide is OK but be cautionary, especially if using a backpack sprayer. Face mask and cover up clothing is wise. Q: Are birds an issue? Thull: Generally yes, because we have such few vineyards scattered across the state. In heavy grape regions like Napa Valley in California vineyards are so frequent there is less chance of bird damage.But here where we have single one-acre or two-acre vineyards, birds find these spots and return year after year.Netting is ultimately going to

provide the best protection and properly handled netting can last a few seasons. Bird cannons, distressed bird sounds are some help but usually of a temporary nature. Q: How late can you do your winter pruning without jeopardizing the vines? Thull: You want to have your pruning done before bud swell; the same for having your vines tied. Bud swell is usually an April event; last year with early spring heat it happened in March. So no later than mid-March is a good rule of thumb for both pruning and tie down. Q: Why the tie down of the vines? Thull: We have to very actively train the vines because if you don’t have the trunk tied to the bamboo stake, or metal rebar stake, your vines get a “gangly” shape. You should also tie your vines to the fruiting horizontal wires to develop that T-formation. This facilitates spraying, gets more sunlight into your fruiting section and also facilities harvesting. Vines should be shaped so you are getting about an equal number of buds on each side of the trunk. It’s a balancing act which takes three to four years. ❖

Grapes are big business in U.S.

Those French like their wine France leads the world in annual per capita wine consumption. The French drink an average of 8.14 liters per person, or approximately 30.8 gallons. Some suggest this wine consumption is a contributing reason for the low heart-attack frequency among the French. France is also the No. 1 wine-producing country, with production of 4.8 million tons in 2010. The United States ranks fourth with 2.3 million tons. The Minnesota Grape Growers Association was established in 1976 to further the art and science of growing grapes in cold climates. The association sponsors workshops, tours, tasting of locally produced wines, plus an annual conference on cold climate viticulture.

From the Fields: Agronomist helps ‘get a handle’ looks to this year’s planting season and has concerns about the “lack of moisture,” coupled with the “possibility of a late spring.” While moisture levels leading into winter were down in the Northfield area, they have received quite a bit of snow this season. Though Messner is “not sure how much has gotten in the ground.”

Messner and his wife, Betsy, are the proud parents of daughter Jessica, 11, and son Jake, 9, who enjoy harvest time on farm most of all. For Messner harvest feels less rushed than the planting season and gives him the opportunity to share that part of farming with his children. See MESSNER. pg. 24A

THE LAND, MARCH 29, 2013

By KRISTIN KVENO The Land Correspondent Sometimes the hardest part of farming is waiting. Waiting for your crops to emerge, waiting for them to grow and mature, waiting for conditions to be adequate to harvest that long-awaited crop. For Chris Messner, he’s just waiting for all this snow to melt away so he can get back in the field again. Messner, who farms with his father, Ken Messner, on the family farm four miles east of Northfield, Minn., also works as an agronomist for Central Valley Co-op in Northfield. It’s this perspective of working with farmers and farming his own ground that has allowed Messner to “get a good handle on what works.” It also gives Messner the opportunity to see what crops are doing across the area. He has worked for Central Valley Co-

op for 13 years and has enjoyed working a job in the agronomy field that has allowed him leeway to both farm and help fellow farmers. On the Messner farm they hope to be out in the field by April 20, with a goal to have “corn planted by the last 10 days of April,” Messner said. Once corn is in the ground beans are planted next, though sometimes, like last year they get planted at around the same time.

From the Fields: Johnson farm stays on top of technology By KRISTIN KVENO The Land Correspondent On the family farm southwest of Starbuck, Minn., spring can’t arrive fast enough for Scott Johnson who is looking forward to being back in the field. “That’s why we farm.” For Johnson, a third-generation farmer, farming is a family affair — he farms with his father, Ron

Johnson and uncle Mike Johnson. He “officially” joined the farming operation in 2010 but says that unofficially he’s been farming his whole life. The Johnson farm will be planting wheat, corn, beans, peas and sweet corn this year. They “used to have a few cows and calves but got out of it last year,” Johnson said. Having cows on the farm started when Johnson showed them in 4-H which led him to showmanship opportunities at the county fair

With no livestock on the farm, they are keeping with what they know and that is utilizing precision agriculture and variable rate technology while seeing value in emerging seed technology. “We always are trying out new varieties and hybrids.” As Johnson looks ahead to the growing season he feels marketing and weather are the biggest challenges. “With high prices comes volatility.” He also knows that weather plays a big part of market volatility. But he hopes that the weather will cooperate so they can be in the field by their target planting dates of April 15-20, starting with the wheat. Once wheat is seeded, corn and peas are next to be planted. Then on to soybeans and sweet corn is the last to planted. See JOHNSON, pg. 23A

From the Fields: Farming comes first for busy Laubenthal

<< www.TheLandOnline.com >>

ager for Brand FX Bodies in The Laubenthal family: front, Swea City, where he’s been from left: Grant, Charlie, Julie, employed since 1990. “I started Max; back, Zachary and working when I had a family,” Alexis Laubenthal said. The job and farming have had a symbiotic relationship that has worked for Laubenthal for 23 years. When he’s not working as plant manager, farming or selling seed, Laubenthal enjoys restoring old tractors. A sentimental favorite of his is the John Deere 70 “that was my grandpa’s.” Now fully restored the JD 70 and a few other antique tractors make appearances in local parades. While it may seem like Laubenthal has a lot on his plate, he is quick to point out that the “main focus is always farming, always been.” He has Laubenthal hopes to be out in the field planting children that are following in his footsteps but won- corn starting April 15, his annual corn planting ders how young people today can afford to get into date. Even when the weather is perfect, he “never farming if they don’t have any help. According to starts until the 15th to plant.” When corn is Laubenthal, average land prices in his area are pushing $12,000 per acre; five years ago is was $3,500 and when he started in 1988 it was $1,000 See LAUBENTHAL, pg. 23A per acre. He is grateful for the help he received when he started out his farming career “my mother definitely helped me get started.”

THE LAND, MARCH 29, 2013

By KRISTIN KVENO The Land Correspondent Most people would say that farming is a way of life. That is certainly the case for Charlie Laubenthal. That life is also full of many jobs, hobbies and activities, and for Laubenthal, he wouldn’t have it any other way. Laubenthal is first and foremost a farmer. “Farming is a family deal,” he said. That deal includes his wife, Julie, who wears many hats around the farm from hauling seed in the spring to making meals for those in the field. “She does a lot of running,” Laubenthal said. They bought their first farm in 1988 and have since added land and family to the farm, starting with their oldest son Max, 24, who works at Bancroft Implement; son Grant, 21, works at StateLine Co-op and has been farming his own acres since he was 16; son Zachary, 16, a sophomore in high school, will be farming his own acres for the first time this spring and daughter Alexis, 15, is a freshman in high school. This year Laubenthal is sticking to what works, a 50-percent corn and 50-percent bean rotation on his farm, located two and half miles south of Swea City, in Kossuth County, Iowa. Laubenthal has added to his acres this year “I think we’ll be busy.” That may be an understatement as Laubenthal also does custom farming, “I think it’s as good as renting ground.” With the additional acres to prioritize, this will be the first year that there won’t be cattle at the Laubenthal farm. Along with farming his own ground and custom farming for others, Laubenthal has sold and serviced Mycogen Seeds for 10 years. Laubenthal also works full time as the plant man-

The Land Correspondent With a blanket of fresh snow on the ground, it is hard to imagine the fresh greens of spring turning to summer and then fall field activities. This fall’s harvest will mark the 27th consecutive year that Danny Brandt has been behind the wheel of a combine. This is quite a feat considering that he was just 10 years old when he started driving a harvester. He farms side by side with his dad, Glen Brandt, on their farm located four miles east of Ada, Minn. While Brandt may have driven the combine beginning at 10 years old, he’s “been actively farming since age 16,” he said. The Brandt farm produces wheat, corn, soybeans and sugar beets, as well as a hog herd of 15 sows. Keeping detailed growing records Brandt looks back at last year’s planting schedule with great amazement. Last March 29 was the first day of planting wheat on the Brandt farm and the “first time I planted wheat in March.” The weather this spring isn’t looking as promising for an early planting sea-

He has read articles from various climatologists that believe “it could be a cooler spring until the middle of June.” While the area around Ada has received some substantial snow fall this year, Brandt feels that the ground is “lacking sub-soil moisture.” The snow will help some but not a lot.

Cover story: Love of gardening, railroads combine

THE LAND, MARCH 29, 2013

By RICHARD SIEMERS The Land Correspondent Mark Schreier has a large backyard at his Minnetonka, Minn., home. He likes lawn. It wasn’t that much work. So he wasn’t keen when his wife, Jan, said she wanted a garden. He came around when she struck a deal with him. “If you let me put in a garden, you can put in a Photos by Richard Siemers train,” Jan told him. Above: Jan and Mark Schreier Mark likes model trains, Right: Some of the gardens, as well as the and he was hooked. Thus railroad structures, can be quite extensive, as was born the garden railroad shown in Jim and Cheryl Shaver’s backyard. in the Schreiers’ backyard. While Mark tends the trains, Jan tends the garden, planting miniature trees, alpine ground cover, miniature hostas, and other small plants, including maidenhair fern which looks like a tree canopy. “Our layout has distinct areas,” Jan said. “There are two villages, an Americana village called Chipton, because we have lots of chipmunks, and a European village called Dalebürg, so it’s the Chipton & Dalebürg Railroad, Chip & Dale for short.” There is also a southwest desert area, a little log cabin forest scene, lots of animals, a quarry in which

Railway gardens vary in terrain and landscapes

THE LAND, MARCH 29, 2013

Gary Larson plans to keep adding to his railway garden now that he is retired.

RAILROADS, from pg. 25A Mark keeps the stone he uses for ballast, even terra cotta soldiers picked up in China. The garden started in 2004 when they hired a crew to put in stone stairs that come down from the gate, grade the area, and put in a fire pit with a little patio where they can sit to enjoy watching the trains. “Everything else we put in — the tunnel, a little canyon area,” Jan said. “We started out getting two tons of rock and it quickly disappeared. It ended up being seven tons of rock.” Mark first laid track on mulch to see what he would like and they started landscaping around it, tweaking the railroad as they went. When the layout was determined, he added roadbed under the track. “I just kind of winged it, hit or miss,” he said. “You want elevation changes to make it look real, curves, over/under places.” Mark has three trains, but says running two at a time is enough to watch. He has G-scale diesel trains that are battery-powered. He said there are a number of choices to consider when

deciding on trains and layout. With trains, there are battery-powered and trackpowered. Schreier’s battery-powered train will run five hours and then the batteries must be recharged. Track-powered electric trains have no time limits and you can run much longer trains.The drawback with track-powered is that you have to keep the tracks very clean, and if there is an electrical malfunction, it can be difficult to find the cause. With the layout, you can have it on the ground, as Mark does, or on an elevated track. As he grows older, Mark thinks the elevated would make life easier. The drawback with elevated is that if the train jumps the track, it falls far enough to do real damage. On ground level you simply put the train back on the track and are ready to go. Mark is president of the Minnesota Garden Railway Society. Gary and Susan Larson also live in Minnetonka, and are also members of the Minnesota Garden Railway Society. Gary has an electric setup that runs on an elevated track built on an already raised bed within a See RAILROADS, pg. 27A

Garden Railway Society boasts 130 household members scale, they do pay attention to it. So this is basically a never-ending project, right? Mark Schreier agrees that it is. And he also thinks thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it is supposed to be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a friend of mine said, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hobby.

models are of trains from the 1800s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the narrow gauge stuff with the smaller cars used back then,â&#x20AC;? Jim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a logging operation. I built that log cabin last winter; it took me about 200 hours.â&#x20AC;? The Minnesota Garden Railway Society built a train layout, and the Lake Minnetonka Garden Club does the gardening at the Wayzata Depot museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only public layout between Chicago and Denver,â&#x20AC;? Mark said. The society has about 130 households as members, and has an open house just about every weekend at someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place, so they can see what other railroaders and gardeners are doing. This is a unique type of gardening.There were no flowers or vegetables in the abovementioned layouts, but the approach to each is individual. The trains of Schreier and Larson travel under a canopy of trees, the track at the Shaversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is out in the open. A garden railway can be small or extensive, natural or fanciful, to perfect scale or simply to scale within reason, rather plain or very imaginative. What it obviously requires is a love of model trains and a love of gardening â&#x20AC;&#x201D; often coming from two individuals. Both the train and the garden require maintenance. Before running the train, Mark always walks the track to see that something isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t obstructing it. When plants get too big and out-ofscale, Jan rips them out and puts in new. While they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t perfectionists when it comes to the layout being in

RAILROADS, from pg. 26A retaining wall. He built a barn that houses about 35 cars, out of which he assembled a two-engine, 22-car diesel train. It was quite the sight to see the lengthy train snake around the track. He was also running an Amtrak train on the same loop, while a steam engine train ran on a shorter separate loop. Right now the setup is mostly train and track. Gary retired last October and will be building mountains and trestles to hide the pipes that hold up the elevated sections. He also wants to put a depot in somewhere. Jim and Cheryl Shaver had a hobby farm with horses in Minnestrista. When they sold the horses, Jim needed another hobby. Visiting the Great Train Store in the Mall of America he realized they made trains that could be used outdoors. That was in 2000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started building structures like buildings and trestles indoors,â&#x20AC;? Jim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get outside until 2004.â&#x20AC;? By then he had done a lot of reading and looking and had an idea of what he wanted. His trains are track-powered on a ground-level layout. He has rigged a pole sander with a scouring pad on the end to clean the track. Cheryl is in charge of the gardening. The Shavers brought in rock and boulders, and built a scenario with mountains, rivers and waterfalls. Instead of the more modern trains that the Schreiers and Larsons have, the Shaversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

‘In The Garden’ debuts in all its growing glory “Keep it short, around two or three words,” was the editor’s suggestion for naming this new garden column. The search was on for a good title. I thought of numerous rhyming and sometimes gimmicky sounding names like, “Garden Guru” and “Garden Goddess.” Some semi-boring titles like

“Country Gardens” and “Garden View” were considered. I knew that “Ace of Spades,” which the unforgettable Hank Wessels used, couldn’t be topped — although “Queen of Spades” was a front runner — so I finally settled on “In The Garden.” When the phone rings during the

In many temperate regions this is a wild vine but here in our zones it is not winter hardy and should be treated as an annual or over-wintered in the house. It requires a sturdy trellis and quickly climbs upwards of 6 feet. Last summer we had over 20 blossoms at one time. The orange colored fruit is egg-sized and makes a popping sound

when crushed so it is sometimes called a Maypop.

By SARAH JOHNSON The Land Correspondent While cruising through a thrift store recently, I rifled through a shelf of books that contained battered copies of old locally published cookbooks, two for a buck, so I tossed a few of them in my cart. All have thick cardboard bindings and paper that smells of dust and old words. One had simply been copied on a mimeograph machine (remember those?), holepunched by hand and tied with white yarn. Another has a completely blank cover and appears to be the original typed document. Treasures ... or trash? To me, they’re tarnished rubies, dusty emeralds, full of the typos and smudges and fingerprints that means “real people were here.” ■ The old-school recipes are what I enjoy most.

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

S

t. James, Minn., was once a railroad town, a division point — the halfway point between Minneapolis and Sioux City, Iowa. They celebrate that heritage every June with Railroad Days. Today, St. James is still a railroad division point — model railroad, that is. The Round House Inc. Model Railroad Club is the only public model railroad club between the Twin Cities and Sioux Falls, S.D. “The club has about 20 members,” said Bill Nelson, club vice president. He said the club draws members from a wide area, Minnesota communities such as Redwood Falls, Fairmont, Lake Crystal and Mankato. Club members have put in uncounted hours to construct varied layouts — an industrial area, a cityscape, a smaller town, a logging area, even a night scene with neon signs. And of course, there’s a St. James area. It isn’t a detailed replica of the railroad in St. James, he said, but centers around the 1950s with historic buildings and scenery. There are two main layouts and two smaller layouts and all can be controlled by computer, called Digital Command Control. It even tells trains when to blow the whistle. But “there is also DC,” Nelson said, “the good old-fashioned put the juice to the rails and go. We’re setting it up so we can

run both ways.” Fascinating as it is, what fascinates small children is the Kids Interactive Lionel Layout down on their level. It is three short loops, a hands-on play area for children where they run the trains. If one falls off of the track, they can pick it up and set it back on. Club members from middle school age on up work together to build the elaborate setups for their own enjoyment and the public’s delight. Almost all of the rolling stock is owned by members, the layouts are owned by the club, but the pleasure belongs to those who stop to watch the trains roll. Round House Inc. Model Railroad Club is at 307 Tiell Drive, St. James, Minn., next to the Railroad Depot Museum. Check their website at roundhouseinc.org. The club is generally open to the public Thursdays 79 p.m. and Saturday afternoons, but it is best to call ahead to make sure someone is there. For more information call (507) 3754797. ❖

Grain Outlook

The following market analysis is for the week ending March 22. CORN — Corn extended last week’s gain with another weekly close higher. Last week we noted that the upper end of the recent range was being challenged and this week it pushed through it toward the next resistance level at $7.50 per bushel. May corn was 9 1/4 cents higher for the week at $7.26 1/4, and the December contract gained 3 1/2 cents at $5.65 1/4 per bushel. Profit taking going into the NYSTROM weekend ended a streak of six PHYLLIS CHS Hedging Inc. consecutive higher closes. St. Paul Attention is beginning to be focused on planting dates. While we aren’t behind the average pace, you can rule out an early start this year. Traders talk has reversed from drought conditions to flooding possibilities in the northern Corn Belt. Drought conditions are persisting west of the Mississippi River, although it’s better than it was. Weekly corn export sales of 3.6 million bushels for old crop and 7.3 million for new crop were less than expected this week, but it was noted that China was the leading destination for old crop sales. Argentina is believed to have issued 2 million metric tons of new corn export quotas. This will have traders sharpening their pencils to determine if Argentine corn will work into the southeastern feeder market. More ethanol facilities are returning to production

Livestock markets are continuing to struggle as we end March. Demand for beef and pork product seem to be the main culprits of the slumping cattle and hog markets. The cattle market, to the surprise of most analysts, has been under duress through March. Ideas were that because of the fewer number of cattle that prices would act on the lower supplies and move considerably higher. However, the exact opposite happened and prices have been on the decline on a live basis. The No. 1 reason is demand for beef, which has been on a decline since last fall. It has been mainly domestic demand that has been on this decline as export JOE TEALE business has been increasing slightly Broker throughout the past several months. Great Plains Commodity This decline in demand has forced Afton, Minn. the packers to manage their margins with even more scrutiny which has been reflected in their bidding for live inventory. As mentioned before as the beef cutout moves above $190 per hundredweight, the movement of beef slows quickly reflecting the reluctance of the retailer to the price increases. There is little doubt that cattle numbers are going to remain tight as the U.S. Department of Agriculture projected in a Monthly Cattle on Feed Report released on March 22. The results were: on-feed March 1, 93 percent; placed on feed in February, 86 percent; and marketed in February, 93 percent. The report was seen as friendly as on-feed numbers and placements were below expectations. This could give the futures a lift, but until demand picks up it is likely prices will continue to struggle. With the current economic conditions that is not likely to help change the overall demand situation.

A late spring can cause many problems for corn and soybean producers. The wet weather prevents early planting which tends to produce higher yielding crops. This tempts us to get into the fields sooner than we should, causing compaction problems that may haunt us later in the growing season. In addition, the later planting puts more demand on the shorter-season hybrids or varieties, causing challenges in seed procurement. Wet, cold spring weather also can lead to more acres of soybeans to be planted if the delays persist. On the other side of the equation TOM NEHER are the end-users of corn and soy- AgStar VP & Team Leader beans.The later-planted crops tend to — Grain Industry be harvested later in the season, genRochester, Minn. erating a domino effect. A later harvest further intensifies the demand for an already tight old crop stocks situation, which can in turn cause additional abnormal movement of grain from the south to the north in the fall because earlier harvesting in that region. This adds additional freight to the cost of grain, giving the southern producers a stronger basis, which challenges the end-user’s profitability. This time of year is the “season of the unknown” in the northern hemisphere. How many acres will be planted? What will the weather and yields become? Will the current inventory fill the needs of end-users? Could all of this be the cause to firming of the corn market? What happens over the next 90 days will determine many of the answers to these questions. One of the things a tight supply and demand market can cause is an inverted market. The demand for

Soybeans break six-day losing streak, finding $14 support NYSTROM, from pg. 1B as margins show improvement. Weekly ethanol production was up 12,000 barrels per day this week, which keeps us on the path to meet the U.S. Department of Agriculture 4.5 billion bushels of corn for ethanol forecast. A spotlight is shining on the Renewable Fuels Standard as debate over the high cost of Renewable Identification Numbers and the ethanol mandate heats up. Essentially, when the RFS was put into place, demand for gasoline was rising. However, as the demand for gasoline has declined, the ethanol mandate is still increasing per the RFS. The “blending wall” is coming close to being hit, meaning if the amount of ethanol dictated by the government was blended into gasoline, gasoline blends would surpass 10 percent. Valero this week stated they expect to spend $500 million to $700 million more than last year to purchase RINs this year to meet their requirement. Two ways to address this situation are at the forefront of conversations, lower the mandate or push once again for a higher blend into gasoline. The latter has proven to be difficult because of automobile warranties and the reluctance of consumers to want a higher blend. Recent gasoline demand has been running at a 128 billion to 130 billion gallon pace. If every gallon of gasoline was blended with 10-percent ethanol, it would equate to 12.8 billion to 13.0

billion gallons when the RFS mandate is 13.8 billion gallons and increases to 14.4 billion gallons in 2014. You see the dilemma. Informa Economics updated their planted acreage estimates ahead of the USDA March 28 report. They are pegging corn acres at 97.753 million compared to last year’s 97.2 million and the USDA’s 96.5 million acres that was released at the February Outlook Conference. Their new number is 1.5 million acres lower than their last estimate. Informa’s balance sheet has this year’s carryout at 594 million bushels, 38 million bushels less than the current USDA balance sheet, but 50 million higher than their previous estimate. For next year they are carrying ending stocks at 2.04 billion bushels on lower corn for ethanol usage. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has approved new Chicago Mercantile Exchange trading hours (all times central) which will go into effect the evening of April 7. The electronic session will trade from 7 p.m. until 7:45 a.m. when a “pause” will occur from 7:45 a.m. until 8:30 a.m.; both electronic and pit trading reopen at 8:30 a.m. and both will close at 1:15 p.m. OUTLOOK: Corn has had a good rally, but basis levels have weakened on an increase in grower selling. The March corn contract hit $7.49

when it expired and the May contract may be targeting that level, so we will use that as resistance into the March 28 reports. The average guess for March 1 stocks is 4.995 billion bushels, the lowest in 15 years; for planted acreage, the average guess is 97.339 million acres, the highest since 1936. Have you considered catching up on new crop sales, or at least adding some downside protection? SOYBEANS — Soybeans broke a six-day losing streak mid-week, finding support near the $14 level before bouncing nearly 50 cents off this week’s low. Soybeans sales from the farmer essentially dried up on the decline. Beans rallied back to close up 14 1/2 cents for the week at $14.40 1/2 while the November contract only mustered a 2 3/4 cent gain to $1.63 3/4 per bushel. Early week losses were tied to the situation in Cyprus as the market tried to decipher what it meant to markets. Brazilian shipping delays are holding their own from 35 to 55 days, depending on the port. Harvest in Brazil is 60 percent complete with Argentina just getting under way, according to Michael Cordonnier. Argentine growers may be slow sellers of new crop since the exchange rate favors holding beans. A labor strike in Brazil for March 25 has been canceled, suggesting negotiations with the government are progressing. Rumors that China canceled up to 2 mmt of Brazilian bean purchases surfaced this week. This would be friendly to U.S. beans if China replaces those cancellations with U.S. beans, but we haven’t seen that happen yet. Tight available supplies continue to lend overall support to soybeans. The new acreage forecast from Informa Economics’ survey is 78.457 million acres compared to last year’s 77.2 million planted acres. Their new estimate is 320,000 acres less than their last projection. Weekly export sales were less than anticipated at 4 million bushels for old crop and 8.6 million for new crop. We are however still on pace to meet the USDA target. There have been whispers that the USDA may be on the high side concerning Chinese need for soybean imports. The lowest bean inspections of the marketing year this week seem to support a slow down for the time being. A Bloomberg survey indicated this

MARKETING

year’s Chinese imports at 59 mmt when the USDA is projecting 63 mmt. China has stated they will release 1 mmt to 1.5 mmt of reserve soybeans to domestic crushers. A new item to hit the markets this week was the financial situation in Cyprus. Cyprus’ economy is one of the smallest in the European Union, but it raises fears of what could happen in other countries. For Cyprus to receive 10 billion euro in bailout funds from the European Central Bank, the Cyprus government needs to raise 5 billion euro. To accomplish this, a proposal to wage a onetime levy on bank deposits of 9.5 percent on deposits over 100,000 euro and 6.75 percent on deposits under 100,000 euro was floated. Banks were closed to avoid a rush on funds. The parliament however defeated the bill. A new levy level of 15 percent on all deposits greater than 100,000 euro is reportedly being considered. As this is written, Cyprus has until March 25 to come up with a way to raise the money after Russia declined to become involved. Their banks are scheduled to reopen March 26, but we’ll see. OUTLOOK: Soybeans are making another run toward $14.50 per bushel, but funds were net sellers on the latest Commitments of Traders report as of March 19. This week it looks like funds were about net even. The average estimates for the March 28 reports, according to a Bloomberg survey: stocks 948 million bushels, the lowest since 2004; planted acreage of 78.351 million acres, a record high. There is some correlation for soybeans acres on the March report to be less than the pre-report estimate; it has occurred in all four of the last four years and in five of the last six years. Nystrom’s notes: Contract changes for the week ending March 22: Minneapolis wheat was up 6 3/4 cents, Minneapolis jumped 10 1/4 cents and Kansas City gained 9 3/4 cents. Crude oil fell 11 cents to $93.71 this week, heating oil decreased 5 3/4 cents, gasoline dropped nearly a dime and natural gas was 4 1/4 cents higher. The U.S. dollar index was up 0.135 points. The USDA Grain Stocks as of March 1 and Prospective Planting reports will be released on March 28 at 11 a.m. central time. Grain markets will be closed March 29 in observance of Good Friday.

Keep marketing sharp Dairy feeling sequestration impact NEHER, from pg. 1B

For these last two years, the end-users have wondered if the supply could meet the demand. Yet, the market did the job of rationing the demand to the supply. Some year we will get back to a more-normal market with enough supply over demand to pay for storing grain. This will help the new, shiny grain bin set-ups built over the past few years start to pay off. Markets come and markets go, no two are exactly alike. The same thing can be said in regards to yield and weather. We can look back and see trends. We can find years that were similar, yet they are a bit like the late snowflakes that fall from the sky this year — they are all different.

Since we can’t predict what the markets, weather and yields will bring, we must keep our management and marketing skills sharp, looking for the edge that can make a difference in our operations.

grain to be shipped sooner rather than later causes the nearby futures contracts to trade higher than the deferred contracts. These markets are rare, yet to have two consecutive years of inverses in the corn futures market is particularly rare. In this type of environment the market has the job of rationing the supply or cutting the demand.

Hog slump continues

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

TEALE, from pg. 1B The hog market has continued to see prices slump as an adequate number of hogs has been enough to meet slumping demand needs for pork. March has seen a continual decline in pork cutouts with pork product volume contracting at the same time. Export business has been a bright spot in the demand picture, but as with the beef it is a slowing of domestic demand that is weighing on the market. Seasonally the hog market usually finds a low about this time of the year. However, if demand does not pick up in the near future, that seasonal low may end up being a big disappointment. The fact that the hog prices have been under pressure for an extended period of time, the market is fairly well oversold and could generate some recovery in prices. The other potential positive for the hogs is the fact that from a value standpoint, hogs are the best meat value pound for pound. As for the outlook for both cattle and hogs, it has become apparent that demand and not necessarily supply well dictate price. At this time demand has been weak for both. ❖

New Zealand milk production lower due to drought MIELKE, from pg. 3B right now but, as one insider put it, “I think we have to wait to see what USDA does to know for sure.” The belief of many is that the suspension of the Milk Production report and now the possible MILC payment reduction is politically motivated by the Obama administration. I’ll have more on that ahead. ■ The April federal order Class I base milk price is $17.66 per hundredweight, down 14 cents from March but $2 above April 2012 and equates to about $1.52 per gallon. The 2012 four-month average now stands at $18.16, up from $16.95 a year ago and $17.19 in 2011. The University of Wisconsin’s Brian

Gould predicts the April MILC payment to producers will be 66.28 cents/cwt. The Agricultural Marketing Service butter price averaged $1.5909 per pound, up 5.2 cents from March. Nonfat dry milk, at $1.5219, was down 4.3 cents. Cheese averaged $1.6402, down almost a penny, and dry whey averaged 60.94 cents, down 3.1 cents. ■ Meanwhile, cheese production remains active with manufacturers surprised at the volumes of milk available to the vats, according to the USDA’s March 15 Dairy Market News.

Meanwhile, U.S. milk production in most areas is increasing along the seasonal trend. Florida has shown only incremental increases during this year’s flush, compared to previous years, with high grain prices and drought being blamed. New Zealand milk production is moving lower seasonally, enhanced by dry conditions. A drought designation was declared for many regions of the North Island. Pastures have deteriorated and the resulting lack of feed is causing a sharp decline in milk production. Farmers are drying off cows earlier than planned and cow slaughter rates are increasing.

production is also being affected by hot, dry conditions, according to the USDA. The drought in New Zealand will open the export doors, according to the March 15 Daily Dairy Report. DDR editor, Mary Ledman, discussed the topic in the March 15 Daily Dairy Discussion, a free download at the DDR website, www.dailydairyreport.com. ■ Whole milk powder, a product that is scarcely even produced in the United States, is likely to become the key driving force in milk and other dairy product prices in the near future, Ledman wrote. She predicted that the drought will strengthen prices on the Global Dairy Trade auction and, as European countries turn from producing nonfat powder to whole milk powder to meet demand that New Zealand can’t, the United States in turn will be a bigger supplier of nonfat dry milk to the world market and that will drive U.S. domestic dairy product prices higher. Buyers indeed responded to the declining milk production in New Zealand in Tuesday’s Global Dairy Trade auction. The index jumped 14.8 percent compared with the previous event, according to the DDR, which added that “the sharp rise in price suggests global buyers are beginning to take steps to ensure they have sufficient supplies until world milk supply comes back online. ... WMP, at $2.32/lb., was up 21.2 percent versus the previous event and the highest price recorded price since July 2008.” Ledman also warned in the “Daily Dairy Discussion” that the suspension of the USDA’s monthly Milk Production report was a “serious blow to the dairy industry” and charged that “politics were at play. ... The report was targeted, when you consider the reports that weren’t suspended.” However, “if a budget resolution is not found in the near term,” Ledman said, “the dairy industry has the opportunity to solve this problem itself.” The dairy checkoff, which is funded by dairy producers, could make the state-bystate calculations and publish the report again, she said. ■ In other trade news, Cooperatives Working Together accepted 24 requests for export assistance this week to sell 2.7 million pounds of butter and 2.7 million pounds of cheese to customers in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. The product will be delivered April See MIELKE, pg. 5B


2012 strong financial year for Dairy Farmers of America ■ Looking “back to the futures,” first half 2013 Class III contracts portended a $17.57 average on Feb. 22; $17.41 on March 1; $17.60 on March 8; $17.55 on March 15; and was trading around $17.80 late-morning March 22, including the announced January and February Class III prices. ■ Members of the nation’s largest dairy cooperative, Dairy Farmers of America, gathered in Kansas City this week for their 15th annual meeting. DairyBusiness Update’s Dave Natzke reported details in Friday’s DairyLine. Some 1,500 attended, he said, and the meeting was both a celebration of productivity, sprinkled with some “mea culpa” for some past activities. Last year was a strong financial year for the co-op, with record earnings and cash flow, built on net sales of more

than $12 billion. The coop marketed about 61 billion pounds of member and non-member milk, about 30 percent of the U.S. total. The average milk price paid by the co-op was $18.49/cwt., down about $2 from 2011’s record high. Offsetting the positive side of the financial ledger was a $216 million charge related to lawsuits involving the co-op, most related to activities nearly a decade

MARKETING

THE LAND, MARCH 29, 2013

MIELKE, from pg. 4B through September. The CWT’s year-todate cheese exports now total 34 million pounds, plus 41 million pounds of butter and 218,258 pounds of whole milk powder to 24 countries. The National Milk Producers Federation’s board will consider doubling the current CWT Export Assistance assessment when it meets in June, according to DairyBusiness Update. The NMPF’s Jerry Kozak said the plan, if approved, would boost the assessment to 4 cents/cwt. and would extend assessment collection through 2014-15. Co-ops and individuals have committed the current 2 cent assessment on about 70 percent of U.S. milk production in 2013. About $30 million is budgeted to cover 2013 export assistance, Kozak said, with another $5 million held in reserve. However, due to heavy use and strong dairy export totals, the program is in danger of running short of funds.

Advantages we offer: • We unload directly from the trucks to a floater (Terra Gator) without stockpiling material. This gives us a more uniform spread with no foliage to plug up the spreader. • With direct loading there is no stockpile, no wasted lime or mess in your field. • We use a floater (Terra Gator) to spread so we have less compaction. • We are equipped to spread variable rate using GPS mapping. • We service Minnesota and northern Iowa. Why apply Aglime: • A soil ph level of 5.5 nitrogen efficiency is only 77 percent. • A soil ph level of 6.0 nitrogen efficiency still is only 89 percent. • At a soil ph level of 7.0 fertilizer efficiency is 100 percent.
