‘Best of Back Roads’ book In 2003, The Land unveiled — “Back Roads” — on the back page of our issue. Since that first essay, we have published more than 350 slices of life in rural Minnesota and Iowa. “Back Roads” has become a reader favorite. Our writers have taken you to festivals, country schools, churches, po w-wo ws, farms, barns, parks and cafes. They have driven the gravel roads where old farmers bale hay and young farmers combine corn. “Best of Back Roads: Stories of hidden gems in Minnesota and Iowa” is a collector’s book filled with our favorites.

Local Eye Doctor Helps Macular Degeneration Patients To See Again

“Where Farm and Family Meet”

And Allows Low Vision Patients To Drive Again For many patients with Macular Degeneration, the world has literally disappeared before their eyes. They have lost the ability to see and do many of the things they love, like being able to recognize the faces and facial expressions of friends and relatives, watch TV, cook, sightsee and read. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Macular Degeneration. However, if you suffer with the disease, there is hope. Thanks to low vision technology, Dr. Chris Palmer is helping patients reconnect to the things in life they love to see and do.

Patient Bill E. with Bioptic Telescopes

Dr. Palmer with a low vision patient

“The first step toward determining if a person would benefit from low vision rehabilitation is to speak to them personally. This is done with a 10 minute free phone consultation. If we determine the person may benefit from care, a low vision evaluation will be scheduled”.

Call today for a free phone consultation and see if you could benefit from low vision technology.

In Minnesota, low vision drivers can use Bioptic Telescopes to better see street signs and traffic lights. This allows many people with macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy to continue safely driving and keeping their independence.

reverse osmosis system. When tiles are flowing, collect samples of 2 to 4 ounces of water in clean plastic bags or bottles. Keep in mind that tiles are seldom running in August, so you might consider collecting samples starting right now. Simply label the sample with the date and source of the water and put it in your freezer. Typically, MAWRC receives more tile samples at this event. “A lot have a good handle on their drinking water,” said Formo. Many farmers treat the testing as a science project, taking samples from different fields at different times of the year to make comparisons. “It helps farmers get a sense of trends,” said Formo. In turn, MAWRC can research what practices might make a difference in water quality. This article was submitted by Minnesota Agriculture Water Research Center with reporting from The Land Associate Editor Marie Wood. v

THE LAND — 2017 FARMFEST ANNUAL

Due to emergence of nitrogen fertilizer regulations, township well testing and other nitrate questions, the Minnesota Agriculture Water Resource Center will once again provide free nitrate screening at Minnesota Farmfest. Warren Formo, executive director of MAWRC, said this is the third year his organization has done nitrate testing at Farmfest. He noted that the nitrogen rule rolled out by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture this summer has generated a huge amount of concern among growers. “We expect to see lots more samples this year, which is great,” said Formo. Samples can be brought to the MAWRC booth in the AURI tent, right across from the Wick Buildings Farmfest Center. Samples will be analyzed immediately at the booth and results will be ready in about 20 minutes. All MAWRC asks is whether the sample is from a well, tile or stream, as this affects the testing process. For wells, remember to take your sample before water has gone through a water treatment system, especially a

DieselSellerz talk biodiesel DieselSellerz appearance, 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 2: Minnesota Soybean Booth 618 Come talk with the DieselSellerz about why biodiesel is their fuel of choice. The guys will be hanging out at Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council’s Booth 618, 1-3 p.m. Aug. 2. The Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council teamed up with the DieselSellerz, stars of Discovery Channel’s hit show “Diesel Brothers,” to promote biodiesel. The partnership aims to bring awareness to biodiesel on a state and national level. Stop by to talk with them about why biodiesel is good for farmers, good for Minnesota and even better for the environment. While you’re there, take a look at the DiselSellerz MEGA RAMRUNNER, an 8-anda-half foot tall by 8-foot-wide monster! This truck features a third-door extended cab, three sunroofs and seating for six! It’s definitely a must-see. Minnesota currently requires a blend of 10 percent biodiesel (B10) for all diesel vehicles in the summer months, increasing to B20 in 2018. The use of biodiesel on Minnesota roads is equivalent to removing roughly 202,000 vehicles each year. Biodiesel also contributed about $1.7 billion to Minnesota’s economy last year, and helps enhance the price of soybeans with an added value of 63 cents per bushel. Visit Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council to learn more about B20 and biodiesel at Minnesota Farmfest.
