Previously unknown rice blast resistance isolated

By Sharon Durham, Agricultural Research Service A never-before-described gene that gives rice resistance to a disease that has been costing about $66 billion a year in global damage has been isolated by a team of scientists led by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) plant pathologist Yulin Jia. Rice blast, caused by the fungus Magnaporthe oryzae, results in annual yield losses large enough to have fed 60 billion people each year, according to the team’s paper just published in the journal Nature Communications (https:// www.nature.com/ncomms). In the United States’ mid-south rice-growing region, the cost of mitigating rice blast infection with fungicide applications can reach almost $20 per acre; plus, the fungus may still cause significant yield loss depending on the susceptibility of each rice variety and the degree of infection at the time of fungicide application, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Economic Research Service. Amazingly, Ptr, the disease resistance gene Jia and his team found, has a structure that has not been seen in plants before. It has been previously deployed unknowingly in blast-resistant rice cultivars because it has been tightly linked to another disease resistance gene, Pi-ta, which has a genetic structure that is well-described in scientific literature. Ptr has essentially been living in the shadow of Pi-ta. “Our research was able to separate the two genes and demonstrate that Ptr is independently responsible for its own broadspectrum blast resistance without Pi-ta,” says Jia. “This will provide a new strategy for developing blast-resistant rice cultivars.” The full genomic sequence of the Ptr gene was put into GenBank for use by public researchers worldwide. Jia, along with his colleagues Haijun Zhao, Melissa H. Jia and Jeremy D. Edwards, is with the ARS Dale Bumpers National Rice Research Center in Stuttgart, Arkansas. Other contributors include Xueyan Wang and Yeshi Wamishe at the University of Arkansas Rice Research and Extension Center (Stuttgart, Arkansas); Bastian Minkenberg, Matthew Wheatly and Yinong Yang at the Pennsylvania State University (University Park, Pennsylvania); Jiangbo Fan and Guo-Liang Wang at the Ohio State University (Columbus, Ohio); Adam Famoso at Louisiana State University (Rayne, Louisiana); and Barbara Valent at Kansas State University (Manhattan, Kansas).

Montana sweeps wool show for third time

The National Columbia Show and Sale was held in June in Gillette, Wyoming. Nearly 50 fleeces were ranked by retired University of Wyoming’s sheep specialist Dr. Leroy Johnson. This year’s overall champion fleece was a ewe fleece shown by Blackman Columbias of Wolf Creek, Montana. The 1st place ram fleece was shown by their daughter Loni Blackman. In 2017 the National Show and Sale was held in Spencer, Iowa. The Overall Champion Fleece ewe came from the Gene & Mary Langhus flock of Big Timber, Montana. Their son Kevin Langhus exhibited the first place ram fleece. Timber Coulee Columbias of Sunburst, Montana was awarded the Reserve Champion Overall Fleece (ewe). At the 2016 National Show and Sale in Minot, North Dakota, the overall champion fleece (ewe) was shown by Timber Coulee Columbias The Overall Reserve Champion (ewe) came from the Gene & Mary Langhus flock. Fleece weight, individual fiber diameter, the length of fibers, color, softness and purity (freedom from colored fibers, kemp, and hair-like fibers) are factors used to determine the value of wool.

A new, smelly bug comes to Wyoming By Scott Schell, University of Wyoming Extension entomology specialist

Three views of an adult elm seed bug, a new invasive pest just reported from Worland. This species is a little shorter from head to tail than a typical boxelder bug at only 1/3 of an inch. The side view shows the beak they use to suck liquid food from plants. Their warning coloration is not as bright as a boxelder bug, although they also defend themselves with a bad odor.

Wyoming is usually one of the last states to get invaded by non-native insect pests. This time we are one of the first six states to get a new insect pest, originally from the areas of Europe and Asia that can grow elm trees. The elm seed bug (Arocatus melanocephalus) was first detected and reported in the United States in 2012 in southwest Idaho and has since spread into Oregon, Washington, Utah, and made a long-distance jump to Michigan. Worland appears to be ground zero for the elm seed bug’s Wyoming invasion with several reports of masses of the bugs appearing on houses and elm tree trunks on warm March days. The only good news is that elm seed bugs are not serious agricultural pests. The elm seed bug lives up to its common name; elm tree seeds are its preferred food. This is similar to the food preference of their distant American relative, the boxelder bug. Their favorite food is the seeds of boxelder trees. The bad news is that many Wyoming folks have Siberian elm trees as shade trees and in windbreaks around their homes and farm yards. This also means people who have never had the unpleasant experience of an invasion of boxelder bugs into their homes might now get invaded by elm seed bugs. Additionally, if there are boxelder and elm trees nearby, you might have home invasions of both. Elm seed bugs will try to take shelter in buildings when it gets hot and dry in the summer and when cold weather starts in the fall. Gaps around house siding are an attractive place for them to spend the winter. The gaps under the siding are like the crevices in the bark of trees, their natural winter habitat. When cold returns, the bugs will try to return to shelter and try to enter houses then, too. “Bug-proofing” a house to keep them out of living spaces is the goal when dealing with any nuisance pest that originates outside. A side benefit of bug-proofing a house is having lower winter heating costs. CONTINUED ON PAGE A7

Make sure weather stripping around doors and windows is in good condition and sweeps on the bottom of the doors are tight-fitting. Check for and repair holes or gaps around window screens and any utility entrances. Good screens will also protect from mosquitoes when windows are open to catch summer breezes. Any opening to the outside wider than a quarter is thick enough to allow elm seed bugs to squeeze in. It is probably impossible to seal every crack and hole, but you can certainly reduce the possible entry points. Don’t crush elm seed bugs if they find their way inside, as they stink, and their body fluids can stain paint. A vacuum can be used to sweep them up. If a household insect spray is used on the invaders first, you would still need to vacuum up the bodies. So, I recommended saving a step and just vacuuming them and disposing of the captured bugs. A barrier treatment with a properly labeled insecticide around the exterior foundation of a house can reduce the numbers of bugs trying to gain entry. Make sure the product is non-staining and labeled for such usage. Removal of elm trees to stop the elm seed bugs is not recommended: the benefits of the trees outweigh the nuisance of the insects. However, many old Siberian elm trees in Wyoming are in sad shape from severe storms and banded elm bark beetle damage, so replacing them with other tree species for a long-term solution to the elm seed bug problem is an option. I hope our native insect predators and parasites of the elm seed bug’s native relatives will adapt and attack them and bring down the elm seed bug populations to tolerable levels. An example is the non-native white satin moth, whose populations only explode for a few years after they reach a new region of America before subsiding.

Quantify the sustainability of the supply chain

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR News A multi-disciplinary team of researchers at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln (UNL) will conduct a project targeting the sustainability of Nebraska’s supply chain. The project is funded by a $15,510 grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust. National Ag Statistics Service lists Nebraska farms accounting for 91 percent of Nebraska’s land with farms covering 43.2 million acres. With such a large amount of land controlled by farmers the sustainability on these acres is critical to overall sustainability. “The first step toward a more sustainable agriculture sector is to quantify the sustainability of the supply chain,” said project leader John Hay, extension educator with Nebraska Extension A diverse group of 80 private and public stakeholders worked together to develop the Field to Market sustainability initiative for commodity crop production, including a tool to aid in quantifying sustainability from crop fields. From this effort came the Fieldprint calculator tool. Nebraska Extension will work with farmers to use the tool with a goal of continuous improvement leading to increased sustainability. The Fieldprint Calculator assesses sustainability in the areas of land use, conservation, soil carbon, irrigation water use, water quality, energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions. The tool will enable farmers to quantify and visualize the sustainability of their fields, and compare their sustainability metrics with peers using local, state and national averages. “We will use this information to help farmers make management decision to reduce inputs and increase sustainability,” Hay said. According to Hay, previous work with the Fieldprint Calculator has provided strong results with 45-85 percent of participating farmers planning to change some practices in the areas assessed to improve sustainability. The project is one of the 105 projects receiving $18,301,819 in grant awards from the Nebraska Environmental Trust this year. The Nebraska Legislature created the Nebraska Environmental Trust in 1992. Using revenue from the Nebraska Lottery, the Trust has provided over $289 million in grants to over 2,000 projects across the state.

Can horses really dance?

Many horsemen wholeheartedly believe that their mounts, with the training of certain steps and maneuvers, can intentionally dance in synchronization with music. The horse’s ability to demonstrate rhythm and style can be felt by the rider, and the keen observer. There are traveling dance horse exhibitions, dinner theaters for dancing horses, competitions for dancing horses, and exhibitions where people dance on the ground with horses. Musical freestyle dressage competitions are the epitome of dance perfection, with correct, classical horsemanship choreographed to movements such as the half-pass, flying changes of lead, pirouette, piaffe, passage, collected and extended gaits, and so on.

Living with Montana’s snakes

From Montana Department of Agriculture Info on Montana’s snakes, how to identify them, and snake control go to http://agr.mt.gov/Portals/168/Documents/VertebratePests/Bulletins/LivingwithMontanaSnakes6-19-18. pdf to view the new Vertebrate Pest Bulletin from Montana Department of Agriculture Vertebrate Pest Specialist Stephen Vantassel and go to http://agr.mt.gov/Topics/Vertebrate-Pests for more bulletins and info about the Department’s Vertebrate Pest Program. Most bulletins are also available from MSU County Extension Offices (http://extn.msu.montana.edu/ localoffices.cfm). For many, snakes evoke feelings ranging from unease to outright panic. Sometimes these feelings cause people to run away from snakes. Many, however, respond by killing snakes, even when those snakes pose no threat to the wellbeing of themselves or loved ones. This bulletin has two important goals. First, it will explain basic snake biology and the role snakes have in Montana’s ecosystem. The goal is to use the following information to overcome fear, increase appreciation of the role snakes play in our environment and to be safe around snakes.

Installing a carpet

A carpet layer had just finished installing carpet for a lady. He stepped out for a smoke, only to realize he’d lost his cigarettes. In the middle of the room, under the carpet, was a bump. “No sense pulling up the entire floor for one pack of smokes,” he said to himself. He proceeded to get out his hammer and flattened the hump. As he was cleaning up, the lady came in. “Here,” she said, handling him his pack of cigarettes. “I found them in the hallway.” “Now,” she said, “if only I could find my parakeet.”

Tiny weevils cause big losses for hay producers

By Jeremiah Vardiman, UW Extension agriculture and horticulture educator in Powell and Scott Schell, entomology specialist in the UW College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Department of Ecosystem Science and Management As few as two alfalfa weevil larvae per plant stem can cause yield losses of more than 400 pounds per acre in the combined first and second cuttings, and feed quality of the harvested hay is reduced. Many alfalfa hay producers report spraying for the pest at least once a year to save alfalfa yields. Alfalfa Weevil Life Cycle In Wyoming, most adult alfalfa weevils overwinter in the leaf debris and crowns of alfalfa plants and become active in the spring when average temperatures warm to above 48 degrees. Female weevils chew holes in new and dead alfalfa stems and deposit yellow eggs in clusters of five to 40. Each female lays 400 to 1,000 eggs a season. In the Midwest and Southern Plains, adult weevils become active and start depositing eggs in the fall. This may be happening in Wyoming during years with long, mild falls. After hatching, new larvae – called first instars – are very small, approximately 1/20-inch long. They emerge from the stem, crawl up to the stem tip and burrow into the leaf whorl head first. There they feed and stay hidden until late in their second larval instar stage. As the plant grows, the leaves unfold, exposing the larger weevil larvae and skeletonized leaves. After weevils reach the fourth instar stage of larval development, they move to the base of the plant where they spin a cocoon, pupate into adults and start the life cycle over again. The third and fourth weevil larval instars do the greatest damage during a time that coincides with the first cutting of the hay. New Tool Predicts Peak Populations Because alfalfa weevils grow and develop incrementally with increasing spring temperatures, a growing degree-day (GDD) calculator can be used to determine the approximate dates to monitor fields for damage and time insecticide spray applications. A GDD chart published by UW Extension in 1993 was intended to give farmers approximate calendar dates for monitoring critical weevil activity. It was not very precise, however, because varying spring weather can change weevil development by several weeks from year to year. Extension is now tailoring a generalized online GDD calculator to utilize local weather station temperature data for more accurate predictions. The program will allow producers to more precisely time weevil monitoring and sampling to coincide with critical periods in the pest’s life cycle. For example, with spring-deposited weevil eggs, the larvae should reach peak second instar at 425 degree-days. The GDD prediction tool will make scouting for the pest more efficient and accurate and facilitate decisions to treat or harvest early before significant yield losses occur. We are now working with growers in the Big Horn Basin in the ground truthing phase of the GDD calculator development. We will know better how accurately the online GDD calculations predict important sampling dates after the 2018 field sampling season. Observations and Progress The first year’s data collections reveal one-year-old adult weevils with new adult weevils and larvae in multiple stages on the same sampling dates. This suggests multiple hatches and overlapping life cycles and could help explain why weevil populations in Wyoming are more difficult to manage than in the past. Research findings from South Dakota and Utah indicate adult weevils do not always overwinter or spend the summer inactive period in the alfalfa fields. Alfalfa weevils can fly, and in South Dakota, they have been found to move into tall, thick vegetation on the field border. In Utah, they have been found a couple miles up canyons adjacent to the fields. It is not known where most weevils in Wyoming spend their summer dormancies. Modifying the weevil’s preferred dormancy habitat inside or outside the fields may offer another opportunity for control. University of Wyoming Extension recommends using integrated pest management, which combines multiple control tactics to reduce alfalfa weevil crop damage. Within the university and in the region, we are working to develop recommendations for better cultural practices, insecticide choices and application timing for better economic control of this pest. Along with improving the GDD calculator, this combination of practices should help Wyoming hay producers better manage this costly pest.

Dr. Luther Talbert, Professor of Spring Wheat Breeding Program at MSU-Bozeman, talked about recent advancement in spring wheat breeding and also some broad and specific issues that breeders are currently dealing with. As a global issue, breeders are dealing with the elevated CO2 level, which although may enhances yield, but may change planting time because of a shift in environmental conditions. Breeders target to improve protein and gluten strength. While dealing with specific issue for Montana, breeders are looking at ways to minimize losses caused by wheat stem sawfly. To do this, breeders are trying to integrate genes for early stem solidness. The topic also included the development of spring wheat varieties for Montana farmers and research programs focuses on experi-

Jim Berg, (Research Associate, Winter Wheat Breeding Program, MSU-Bozeman), thanked Montana Wheat and Barley Committee for all their support and talked about winter wheat cultivars for North Central Montana. Jim mentioned that attendees about four major wheat varieties being developed in Montana, namely, Colter, Keldin, SY Wolf, SY Clearstone. He discussed yield variation and importance of herbicide and sawfly resistance in wheat varieties. The topic covered developing improved winter wheat cultivars adapted to Montana while developing production strategies to maximize wheat quality consistency. It will eventually enhance wheat marketability, environmental, genetic and management factors that influence wheat productivity and end-use quality.

ments related to the overall improvement of wheat. Dr. Alan Dyer, (Professor, Seed and Root Pathology, MSU- Bozeman) talked about improvement in Crop Science program in Montana State University. While talking about root lesion nematodes, he mentioned about a recent survey which was done at MSU to investigate the impact of root lesion nematodes on small grains. He stated that root lesion nematode can reduce small grain yield up to 14%. Crop rotation with barley and pulses help fighting nematodes problems. Since high numbers of nematodes were found following winter wheat, studies are focused on the development of resistant winter wheat varieties. CONTINUED ON PAGE A18

Further Dr. Hikmet Budak, (Professor, Winifred Asbjornson Plant Sciences Chair, MSU-Bozeman) spoke about new technologies to improve wheat and barley varieties in Montana. He emphatically talked about

necessity of higher yielding varieties. Dr. Hikmet updated attendees on the work being done at MSU including genome editing and green house and field experiments to improve yields and provide insect resistance. His talk gave attendee’s a better understanding of gene transmission and silencing. He also highlighted a new program, ‘Voice of Montana Farmers’ where farmers can talk about their concerns and experiences. It will start again this September at MSU, Bozeman. Dr. Prashant Jha, (Associate Professor, Weed Science, MSU- SARC, Huntley), spoke extensively about the need of development of multi-tactic methods for herbicide resistance in Montana. Herbicide resistance is becoming prominent in Montana, especially glyphosate resistance. He spoke about necessity of managing weed seed banks, managing fallow land using fallapplied soil residual herbicides, effective crop rotation, and strategic tillage to combat problem of glyphosate-resistant kochia and Russian thistle. He specifically talked about wheat, pulses, sugar beet cropping system, and weed management strategies in these cropping system. Growers do not usually notice resistant plants during the first few years of their appearance, or attribute them to application problems. However, by repeatedly using the same herbicide mode of action over time, you remove all susceptible individuals and select for the resistant plants. Dr. Jha’s talk was informative and can give some management tips to deal with this problem. CONTINUED ON PAGE A22

Central Grasslands Center gaining 2 specialists

Trader’s Dispatch, August 2018 — Page A23

Our website is new and improved!

By NDSU Extension Service Lisa Pederson has joined North Dakota State University’s Central Grasslands Research Extension Center (CGREC) near Streeter, North Dakota, and Erin Gaugler started there August 1. Pederson is the center’s NDSU Extension livestock specialist. Gaugler will be the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station’s range research specialist at the center. Both have NDSU experience. Before joining the CGREC, Pederson spent 19 years as Extension’s beef quality assurance specialist at NDSU’s Dickinson Research Extension Center. “Lisa will continue working in the area of beef quality assurance while strengthening the Central Grasslands and NDSU Extension outreach and programming as a livestock specialist,” says Kevin Sedivec, the CGREC’s interim director. “We feel fortunate to have her on our team.” Pederson, who grew up on a cow-calf operation in southwestern Colorado, earned bachelor’s degrees in agricultural business and animal science and a master’s degree in farm and ranch management and livestock production from Colorado State University. In addition to her Extension work, she and her husband are involved in his family’s fifth-generation cattle operation. Gaugler has been the NDSU Extension agent in Bowman County since May 2016, providing Extension programming in agriculture and natural resources, as well as working with 4-H. She earned associate of science degrees in wildlife management and human communication from Casper (Wyoming) College, a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture and natural resources from Berea (Kentucky) College and a Master of Science degree in range science from NDSU. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience looking at real-world application of grazing management on range and pasture, late-season grazing alternatives and using cover crops to enhance soil health,” Sedivec says. “Erin will not only strengthen the center’s research portfolio but add depth to our opportunities to conduct demonstration projects with local ranchers and Extension agents within the Missouri Coteau.”

From sorghumcheckoff.com United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Sonny Perdue announced recently the appointment of four individuals to the United Sorghum Checkoff Program (USCP) board of directors. Members will serve three-year terms. According to the USDA press release, the sorghum farmers appointed to the board are: • Adam Schindler from Reliance, South Dakota (At-Large) • Boyd Funk from Garden City, Kansas • Craig Poore from Alton, Kansas • Jim Massey from Robstown, Texas Schindler will fill the at-large seat currently held by David Fremark of St. Lawrence, South Dakota, who will complete his service as board director in December. Funk, Poore and Massey were all reappointed to their respective seats. “We are excited to welcome both the new and returning directors to the Sorghum Checkoff,” said Sorghum Checkoff Executive Director Florentino Lopez. “The board of directors plays an essential role in our efforts to increase producer profitability and enhance the sorghum industry, and we look forward to working with the appointed board of directors in carrying out the goals of the Checkoff for our farmers.” The 13-member board is authorized by the Commodity Promotion, Research, and Information Act of 1996. The Secretary selected the appointees from sorghum producers nominated by certified sorghum producer organizations. Research and promotion programs are industry-funded, authorized by Congress and date back to 1966. Since then, Congress has authorized the establishment of 21 research and promotion boards. They empower farmers and ranchers to leverage their own resources to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets and conduct important research and promotion activities. The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) provides oversight, paid for by industry assessments, which ensures fiscal responsibility, program efficiency and fair treatment of participating stakeholders.

MDS SUPPLY is central Montana’s source for Fillrite fuel pumps.

Dr. Chengci Chen, (Superintendent/Professor of Agronomy, MSU-EARC, Sydney) spoke about pulse crop variety performance in different environments in Montana. He spoke about different varieties and their performance in 2017. He mentioned, that although Desi peas are not in high demand, Desi are more heat and dryness tolerant. In order to enhance yield and quality, information on varietal testing and improved agronomic management practices are needed. The Eastern Agricultural Research Center (EARC) of Montana State University (MSU) is currently coordinating a series of statewide dry pea, lentil and chickpea variety evaluation projects across Montana.

troduced other team members Debra Miller, Rama Gadi and Ramandeep Kaur Sandhi, who are working on pheromone trapping of pea leaf weevil, survey of pea weevil and predatory nematodes for biological control of wireworms respectively. Dr. Reddy also thanked USDA-Montana Specialty Block Grant and US Dry and Lentils Council for funding the research work.

Dr. Gadi V.P. Reddy, (Professor and Head of Entomology/Insect Ecology Program Unit, MSU-WTARC, Conrad) talked about the different entomology programs for pulse crop insect pests, particularly a new pest pea weevil. He also mentioned about importance of faba beans as trap crop for pea leaf weevil management. Dr. Reddy’s talk covered biology, threshold level and management of these two insects’ pests. Growers are looking forward to having information on how to solve these insect pests’ problems in their fields. In the meantime, Dr. Reddy in-

Dr. Frankie Crutcher talks about disease management in cereals and legumes.

Dr. Frankie Crutcher, (Assistant Professor, Plant Pathology, MSU-EARC, Sydney), talked about disease management in cereals and legumes. She mentioned about Fusarium and importance of working with breeders to improve the variety to make them disease resistance. She briefly explained about the procedure followed to test disease resistance. She mentioned about root rot in peas and lentils and progress in trials to test for fusarium resistance. Growers are looking for information on disease management practices and Dr. Crutcher talk provided information to cereal growers and participants in general. CONTINUED ON PAGE A28

Noxious weed identification available for mobile devices

Montana State University Extension has updated its publication on noxious weed identification, “Montana’s Noxious Weeds,” making the information available for the first time as an electronic flipbook accessible on mobile devices. Mobile device users can download the flipbook for free from the MSU Extension store at store.msuextension.org/ by searching the publication number (#EB0159). The new flipbook includes key characteristics of 35 noxious weeds and five regulated plants, colorful photographs of each species and links to MSU Extension and USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service publications that describe plants in more detail, including integrated management recommendations. “Noxious weed management begins with correct identification of the target weed,” said Jane Mangold, invasive plant specialist with MSU Extension and associate professor in the MSU Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences. “Over 100,000 copies of the original pocket guide have been distributed across the state since 2001, helping many people to identify and manage noxious weeds during that time. To stay current, we try to update the publication frequently, adding information as new weeds are added to the state noxious weed list.” The publication can be downloaded onto computers and mobile devices, making it accessible even when Wi-Fi is unavailable. Links within the download describing management procedures, however, are only available with a Wi-Fi signal. “This flipbook will serve as a tool for noxious weed managers, land owners, recreationalists and others who may wonder if an unknown plant is a noxious weed,” Mangold said. “They can simply look up the plant in question, then be able to search immediately for information on how to best manage it.” “Montana’s Noxious Weeds” and other updated noxious weed publications can be ordered from MSU Extension Publications at 406-994-3273 or at store.msuextension.org/ by searching “noxious weeds.” In addition to the free mobile flipbook, printed copies of “Montana’s Noxious Weeds” can be purchased for $4.95 each. There is also a high-resolution PDF available for download.

Reduce heat stress in cattle

By NDSU Extension Service This summer’s high temperatures are taking their toll on humans and cattle. Extreme heat actually is a mix of temperature and humidity, and when both are high, the effort to stay cool can be stressful, according to Karl Hoppe, North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension livestock systems specialist at the Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC). Cows will look for shade to provide some relief from heat radiating from the sun. They’ll also seek a wind or breezy location to provide some evaporative relief, and water, mostly for drinking and some for cooling. “Adequate drinking water is the first step in relieving heat stress,” Hoppe says. “During hot weather, cattle will substantially increase water intake. It’s important to have enough drinking space and adequate water reserves to allow cattle to drink and not fight with other cattle for water.” Depending on their size and stage of production, cows can require 15 to 30 gallons of water per day. “The minimum livestock storage tank capacity should be enough to meet the minimum water requirements for the number of animals being grazed per day,” says Miranda Meehan, NDSU Extension livestock environmental stewardship specialist. “The water tank should supply adequate water for two to three days using an electric (hard-wired) pump or three to seven days using a wind- or solar-type pump.” Because of cattle’s need for water, producers should be extremely diligent about monitoring water sources on hot days, the specialists say. “Hot, dry conditions support the growth of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria), which is toxic to livestock,” Meehan adds. “Ponds that had adequate-quality water for drinking early in the grazing season may become toxic because salts and sulfates become more concentrated as water evaporates.” If water quality is a concern, immediately collect a water sample and have it tested for total dissolved solids (TDS) and sulfates. Greater than 3,000 to 5,000 parts per million of TDS would indicate the water is poor quality and producers should find alternative water sources. Biting flies also create stress on cattle. To lessen fly stress, cattle will bunch together. This reduces the wind that can get into the middle of the herd and exaggerates heat stress. Bunched cattle also can create a dust cloud on dry days. Too much dust can lead to breathing stress. When the weather is hot, cattle with reduced lung function can be identified easily; they may have labored breathing with increased panting, their tongue may be hanging out and they may be frothing at the mouth. Hoppe says feedlots use water sprinklers to cool the pen surface or wet the cattle. However, spraying water can lead to increased localized humidity, which on hot day may create more heat stress than relief. Cattle with white hides will reflect sunlight and tend to handle heat better than black-hided cattle. However, in winter, black-hided cattle may enjoy the solar heat-collecting properties of their hide. In North Dakota, the nighttime temperatures usually fall below 72 F, giving cattle an opportunity to cool. When the temperature doesn’t drop below 72 F, cattle remain stressed, and after two or three days, they can develop heat stress. “When several days of hot and humid weather are forecast, be proactive and create cooling opportunities in the morning before cattle start panting,” Hoppe advises. “Cooling options are more water tanks with easy access, moving cattle to shade and away from windbreaks, and controlling flies.” The specialists also suggest producers sign up for the Cattle Heat Stress Forecast Maps (https://toolkit.climate. gov/tool/cattle-heat-stress-forecast-maps) to receive alerts about cattle heat stress conditions in their location. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service offers daily maps with seven-day forecasts of temperature, humidity, wind speed and cloud cover based on information from the National Weather Service. For more information about heat stress, water requirements and water quality, check out these NDSU Extension publications: • “Livestock Water Requirements” (http://tinyurl.com/ LivestockWaterRequirements) • “Livestock Water Quality” (http://tinyurl.com/LivestockWater) • “Dealing with Heat Stress in Beef Cattle Operations” (http://tinyurl.com/beefheatstress) ##### Chocolate contains phenylethylamine (PEA), a natural substance that is believed to stimulate the same reaction in the body as falling in love.

National Marshmallow Toasting Day

Date When Celebrated: Always on August 30th During eleven out of the twelve months of the year, we enjoy a wide range of holidays. When we get to August, there is a major shortage of big holidays to celebrate. Perhaps that is why many Europeans take the month of August off for vacation. Perhaps it as just as well that there are no big holidays to compete with National Marshmallow Toasting Day. After all, how could any holiday compare with this day!?! Enjoy today or tonight by a campfire or bonfire, toasting a big, soft, sticky and sweet marshmallow, or two, or three, or….. Summer would not be the same without a campfire and this great campfire treat. Summer is short. Summer is good. Let’s enjoy it while it is still

here. Toast a marshmallow and forget about everything else. And, don’t forget to make a few S’mores. The recipe is below. S’mores Recipe: Ingredients: Chocolate candy bar Honey Graham Crackers Marshmallows Instructions: Break off a square of Graham cracker Add a piece of Chocolate. Toast a big marshmallow over the campfire. Add the hot marshmallow. Top it with another graham Cracker. Eat, savor and enjoy! Note: You can make S’mores in the microwave. Just put them together and pop them into the microwave on high for 15 to 20 seconds.

CoCoRaHS turns 20

By University of Wyoming Extension A deadly rainstorm on the west side of Fort Collins, Colorado, led to an international network of citizen weather observers you can join. Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network (CoCoRaHS) officially began on June 17, 1998, with a few observers along Colorado’s Front Range. Today, more than 20,000 observers are active in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada and the Bahamas. Volunteers include gardeners, rural landowners, teachers, students, youth in 4-H and after-school programs, and other volunteers. It takes about five minutes a day to measure and report precipitation using low-cost measurement tools and the interactive CoCoRaHS website or phone application. The CoCoRaHS network provides valuable data for natural resource management, education and research. Meteorologists, flood plain managers, insurance adjusters, farmers, ranchers and recreationists use CoCoRaHS data to make decisions such as when to plan a trip or when to issue severe storm warnings. To learn more, including how to volunteer, see the new fact sheet from University of Wyoming Extension at bit.ly/weathervolunteer and visit the CoCoRaHS website at www.cocorahs. org.

Parman joins NDSU Extension

By NDSU Extension Service Bryon Parman has joined North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension as an assistant professor and agricultural finance specialist. Parman will identify financial issues faced by North Dakota farmers and livestock producers and develop Extension programs to help keep North Dakota agriculture financially healthy. His programs will focus on whole farm and agribusiness financial structure, farm financial risk management, investment analysis, machinery cost assessment, land values and rents, farm financial record analysis, farm financial trends and income tax management. In addition, he will work closely with agricultural lenders and agribusinesses to promote good working relationships between lenders and producers. He also plans to work with the North Dakota Farm Business Management Program. Parman, who grew up on a large corn and cattle farm in southwest Nebraska, earned a Master of Science degree in economics with a specialization in agricultural real estate and finance from the University of Nebraska-Omaha and a doctorate in agricultural economics from Kansas State University. Most recently, he was an assistant professor and agricultural finance and farm management specialist at Mississippi State University. “We are excited to have Bryon join NDSU Extension,” says Charlie Stoltenow, NDSU Extension assistant director and program leader for agriculture and natural resources. “His background and expertise in agricultural production, econometrics and finance make him uniquely qualified for the position.” Parman can be reached at 701-231-8248 or bryon.parman@ndsu.edu.

Senior Division The top teams were: • First - Kidder County, with team members Shaye Koester, Bradyn Lachenmeier, Austin Schmidt, Madelyn Schmidt and Austin Weippert (coach Gary Martens) • Second - Stark-Billings County, with team members Kia Ward, Victoria Trochez, Taylor Downing and Jersey Filkowski (coach Kurt Froelich) • Third - Ward County, with team members Matthew Schauer, Ethan Myers, Tate Novodvorsky, David Schersky and Kaden Korgel (coaches Jacob Scheresky, Jayd Novak and Thomas Schauer) Individual winners: • First - Rhea Laib, Sheridan County • Second - Ryeleigh Laib, Sheridan County • Third – Koester • Fourth – Lachenmeier • Fifth - Ward Intermediate Division The top teams were: • First - Ward County, with team members Mark Schauer, Mason Kraft and Wyatt Kersten (coaches Jacob Scheresky, Jayd Novak and Thomas Schauer) • Second - Stark-Billings County, with team members William Schmidt, Justin Kathrein, Wyatt Dorner, Jess Schultz and Katie Schmidt (coach Kurt Froelich) • Third - Towner County, with team member Cordell Walters (coach Rick Vannet) Individual winners: • First - William Schmidt • Second – Schauer • Third – Walters • Fourth – Kraft • Fifth - Kathrein Junior Division The top teams were: • First - Stark-Billings County, with team members Joel Schultz, Mark Schmidt and Ryan Schumacher (coach Kurt Froelich) • Second - Ward County, with team members Layne Korgel, Elizabeth Kraft and Danny Kersten (coaches Jacob Scheresky, Jayd Novak and Thomas Schauer) Individual winners: • First – Korgel • Second – Schultz • Fourth – Schmidt • Fifth - Schumacher In meat judging, 4-H’ers rank retail cuts, primal cuts and/ or whole carcasses. The contestants then identify retail cuts, including specifying the species, primal cut, name of the retail cut and recommended cooking method. At the state 4-H contest, all participates were asked 10 questions on meat classes chosen by the official judges. “Meat judging is one of the most effective tools for the recruitment and development of future meat science technologists in existence today,” says Leigh Ann Skurupey, animal science specialist in NDSU Extension’s Center for 4-H Youth Development and this event’s organizer. 4-H is a program of NDSU Extension. “Meat judging is much more than the determination of quality and lean meat yield of a carcass or wholesale cut,” Skurupey adds. “As a 4-H participant gearing up for a meat judging contest, this opportunity serves as a training tool to develop young leaders in the meat and livestock industries. Meat judging is the prime training ground for U.S. meat companies.” She notes that meat judging helps the youth develop analytical, decision-making and communication skills, and confidence, as well as practical skills they can use every time they visit the grocery store or butcher shop. “From listening to these 4-H’ers practicing in the cooler to watching them skillfully navigate each class with focus and determination, I couldn’t be more impressed by these future leaders and their talent,” Skurupey says. “I commend the coaches for the hard work they pour into these incredible young people.” Results for the State 4-H Meat Judging Contest are posted on JudgingCard.com under North Dakota 4-H Meat Judging Contest (https://www.judgingcard.com/Results/Events. aspx?ID=9719).

Bright Agindotan, manager of the Regional Pulse Crop Diagnostic Laboratory, holds a sample of chickpeas infected with a fungus called botrytis on Friday, June 15, 2018, at Montana State University in Bozeman. MSU Photo by Adrian Sanchez-Gonzalez.

Like a farmer scanning the horizon for coming changes in weather, in 2014 Mary Burrows looked to the future of Montana agriculture, and what she saw prompted her to start the Regional Pulse Crop Diagnostic Laboratory at Montana State University. It was a prescient decision. That year, farmers planted about 702,000 acres of pulses — dried leguminous crops that include peas, chickpeas and lentils. Just three years later, they planted more than double that acreage. Burrows, a professor in MSU’s Department of Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology, anticipated the change, “but the exponential growth has been pretty surprising,” she said. More and more farmers, Burrows said, are seeing the benefits of planting pulses, which require little soil moisture, provide a cover crop that prevents weeds and fix essential nitrogen into the soil. In lieu of a traditional crop rotation that requires fallowing fields of wheat, a longtime staple of Montana agriculture, many farmers are instead getting extra income by pairing wheat with pulse crops. But the benefits have come with new costs. “Pulse crops are really susceptible to a lot of diseases,” Burrows said. Luckily, “many diseases can be prevented using integrated pest management, including using clean seed.” In 2014, no lab in the U.S. specialized

in diagnosing pulse crop diseases. MSU’s Schutter Diagnostic Lab, which identifies a variety of plant problems, was struggling to apply its expertise to the uptick in pulses. “We established the pulse lab because we had a number of diseases and nobody in the region with the capability to quickly identify them,” Burrows said. In starting the lab, MSU had wide support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture, industry groups including the U.S. Dry Pea and Lentil Council and the Northern Pulse Growers Association, the Montana Department of Agriculture and others, Burrows said. Pulse pathogens include a variety of bacteria, fungi, viruses and nematodes, which are tiny, worm-like parasites. Often, pathogens don’t immediately reveal themselves but become a problem in future generations of plants. “Some seeds look healthy, but have disease,” said Bright Agindotan, assistant research professor in the plant sciences and plant pathology department and manager of the pulse crop lab. Over the past four years, with a few relatively small grants and funding from the Farm Bill, the facility has expanded its capabilities with advanced equipment that can, for example, quickly determine a pulse CONTINUED ON PAGE B7

sample’s genetic makeup. “We look at what you can’t see with your own eyes,” said Muhammad Mahathar, a senior majoring in microbiology who works part-time in the lab. If diseases go unchecked, they can reduce yields, undercut a grower’s ability to sell seed and cut off avenues for export. According to the Montana Department of Agriculture, the state’s export of pulse crops grew from $8 million in 2010 to more than $160 million in 2016. Many countries require certification that pulse products are free of nematodes and other pathogens, Agindotan said. If significant levels of specific nematodes or other quarantined pathogens are widely discovered in Montana, Burrows said, a country like India could decide to decline the state’s imports entirely. “(The lab) is a really valuable resource for protecting the industry from trade barriers,” she said. This year, Agindotan received a sampling of chickpeas that had a high concentration, about 17 percent, of Ascochyta blight, a fungus that can decimate the crop. Much of it showed resistance to a commonly used fungicide, and he quickly contacted the grower to advise an effective alternative. The incident demonstrated the importance of catching a disease early and working with the farmer to develop a strategy, he said. “Just like when you go to the doctor, the first step is to diagnose the disease,” he said. “Then you can treat it.” Last year, the lab received more than 1,900 samples, mostly from around Montana. Agindotan and others also travel the state to proactively find diseases that are just beginning to get a foothold. In 2016, for the first time in the state, they found Aphanomyces, a root rot whose spores can persist in soil for as long as 20 years. Lab personnel are now educating farmers about prevention of the disease, and are researching the best way to manage it in Montana. According to Burrows, it’s unclear whether the tide of pulse crops will continue to rise in Montana. Currently, the low price of wheat is helping to bolster pulses. Because farmers have seen the benefits of the crops and gained experience growing them, the levels may never never drop back to 2014 levels, she said. Today, MSU’s diagnostic lab, which serves Montana as well as six surrounding states, remains the only one in the U.S. that specializes in pulse crops. “It has proven its value,” Burrows said.

Smart Hydraulic System For ease of operation and improved longevity

By Julie Garden-Robinson, Food and Nutrition Specialist, NDSU Extension I thought back in time as I drove by the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center recently. I had reached the rolling hills near Washburn, North Dakota, on my way to the North Dakota 4-H Camp. Captain Meriwether Lewis and Lieutenant William Clark and their crew built Fort Mandan in the Washburn area in November 1804. The two-year Corps of Discovery Expedition had been commissioned by Thomas Jefferson to find a direct waterway to the Pacific Coast between 1804 and 1806. Although the explorers brought 7 tons of nonperishable foods with them, including sugar, beans, lard, flour, salt and coffee, these explorers had to live off the land, according to food history writer Tori Avery. In North Dakota, buffalo and deer were abundant, and each man ate an estimated 9 pounds of meat per day at times. The men took turns cooking and became fairly adept at creating meals from whatever they hunted or gathered. Sometimes their inventiveness prevented them from starvation. For example, a cooked flour and berry concoction is credited with saving them in 1805. When I reached the 4-H Camp, we had our own “Corps of Discovery” in the culinary sense. Our group included 20 kids, one-third of them boys, who were about to learn skills for life. When I distributed their cooking kits and aprons, they looked at me and said, “Do we get to keep all this?” Thanks to grants and sponsorships, my answer was “yes.” Their kits included measuring cups and spoons, a can opener, spatula, mixing spoon and other items all packed in a reusable lunch bag. These were definitely items that Lewis and Clark’s expedition did not have. Earlier generations relied on guesswork for measurements, and sometimes you just ate to stay alive regardless of the quality of the food. At 4-H Camp, we spent time teaching our budding chefs how to use their equipment to measure and create recipes that they could prepare by themselves or with a little help when they returned home. Early measurements were not precise. In one of my antique cookbooks, a recipe calls for “butter the size of an egg.” Other cookbooks used “teacupfuls” as a measure for flour. In early times, when you were ready to place your creation in the oven, of course, no digital temperature gauge was on the stove. You placed your hand in the oven and counted how long you could hold it in the oven to get an approximation of temperature. Measuring spoons weren’t patented until about 1900 by cookbook author Fannie Farmer, nearly 100 years after Lewis and Clark’s expedition. She developed metal measuring spoons with a swivel design that could be folded together. According to Fannie, “Correct measurements are absolutely necessary to insure the best results. Good judgment, with experience, has taught some to measure by sight; but the majority need definite guides.” Accurate measurements help you recreate your recipe, provide consistent reactions of the ingredients with each other and ensure consistent nutritional content of the recipe.

Rodeos originated in the United States as an extension of the day-to-day lives of the pioneer cowboys. Catching cattle for branding, and riding young bucking horses, naturally progressed into competitions between the cowboys. Today, most rodeos hold seven events, including bareback bronco riding, saddle bronco riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, calf roping, team roping, and cowgirls’ barrel racing. A typical unbroken horse costs about $1,000. A top-ranked bucking horse or bull

can be worth over $100,000. The word rodeo comes from the Spanish rodear, which means to encircle or surround, as cowboys do with cattle. The actual term rodeo was first given to cowboy exhibitions in 1916. Animal rights activists are vocal critics of rodeos, claiming that rodeos cause physical and mental distress to the animals involved. Rodeos originally held wagon races and marksmanship contests, in addition to the traditional events.


Farmers, ranchers benefit from promoting pollinators

By Scott Schell, entomology specialist in the UW College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Department of Ecosystem Science and Management I want to make the case that all Wyoming farmers and ranchers can benefit by promoting pollinators. Creating, enhancing and protecting habitat that provides flowers during the growing season can promote pollinators, increase crop yields, reduce pest insect populations and add value to your land. Pollinators Increase Yields To ensure profitable yields, human-managed pollinators – usually honey bees and alfalfa leafcutter bees – are brought in to provide pollination services. Dry beans, though they have self-fertile flowers, show increased yield when wild pollinators, such as bumble bees, visit the flowers and “trip” them. Livestock producers rely on the production of grass, a windpollinated “crop,” and may not think there would be any advantage to maintaining a diversity of flowering plants as part of their range management. Even grassland, however, can benefit from flowering plants in the plant community. Pollinators Reduce Pests Evidence for this can be seen in pure stands of crested or intermediate wheatgrass. These pastures can become heavily infested with black grass bugs, a native insect that sucks the cell contents out of grass leaves, stunting the plants and reducing the nutritional value of the forage. Black grass bug populations are rarely noticeable on native prairie where flowering plants help support populations of their many predators and parasitoids. Many of the same plants that benefit pollinators also promote increased populations of beneficial insect species. These beneficial insects, the many predators or parasitoids of crop pest insects, can help control pests in crops that don’t need insect pollination. While the juvenile forms of many of these beneficial insects prey upon pests, their adult forms use nectar and pollen from flowers to survive and reproduce. Examples of these insects are green and brown lacewings, many tachinid fly species and a multitude of parasitoid wasp species. Parasitoid wasps seek out pest insect adults, immatures and even their eggs, as places to lay their eggs. These eggs hatch and eventually kill the pest insect. The parasitoid wasps in the genus Bathyplectes attack alfalfa weevils and are an example of an important beneficial species that feeds on flower nectar as adults. Pollinators Need a Hand One way to promote pollinator populations, and wildlife in general, is to ensure they have healthy habitats that provide everything they need throughout their life cycles. Pollinator conservation seed mixes are available to add flowering plants and boost pollination. I would recommend you check any wild mix you are considering with your county’s weed and pest district to make sure it doesn’t contain plant species that can become invasive in your region. For enhancing pollinator and beneficial insect habitats on eligible land, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provides technical assistance through its Conservation Stewardship Program program. This and the Environmental Quality Incentives Program also provide financial incentives to maintain pollinator enhancements. The quickest way to find out if funding is available for enhancing your land is to contact your local field office. Use this link to find an NRCS office: bit.ly/nrcsfinder Pollinators Add Value to Your Land The decline of many kinds of pollinators in the United States and around the world has been well documented, and the problem has the potential to impact food production. Most people in the agricultural industry care about the long-term sustainability of agricultural production, especially those who want to pass on productive land to the next generation. To learn more about how to enhance pollinator habitats, check out the following resources. Resources • Issue of “Rangelands Journal” devoted to pollinators in rangelands: bit.ly/rangepollinators • USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) website with pollinator information: bit.ly/nrcspollinators • Western SARE “Habitat Plantings and Restoration for Pollinators and Beneficial Insects” factsheet offers guidance and other resources for planning pollinator plantings: bit.ly/ restore4pollinators • UW Extension “Promoting Pollinators on Your Place, A Wyoming Guide” provides information on ornamental plant species, habitats favored by pollinators and an excellent section on getting started with beekeeping: bit.ly/yourplacepollinators • Pollinator Guide resources from Barnyards & Backyards magazine: bit.ly/BBpollinatorguide

National Potato Day

Date When Celebrated: Always August 19th National Potato Day is a day to celebrate and enjoy a few potatoes. The versatile spud can be enjoyed in some way for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and as a snack. While it can be eaten raw, it is usually cooked, boiled, baked or fried. It is used in countless recipes. Americans can’t seem to get enough of them. Potatoes are one of the largest vegetable crops in the world. They were first cultivated in Peru, around 5,000- 7,000 BC. Pardon the broad estimate, but records were sparse back then, often written on the inside wall of a cave. While most potatoes grow to about the size of your fist or less, the largest potato ever grown, weighed in at 18 pounds, 4 ounces. Now, that’s a whole lot of french fries! In celebration of National Potato Day, make certain to include potatoes at every meal today, and for snacks, too! Happy National Potato Day!

2018 Nebraska Farm Real Estate Survey

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR News Final results from the 2018 Nebraska Farm Real Estate Survey show a fourth consecutive year of declining Nebraska agricultural land values. The statewide average value dropped 4 percent to $2,270 per acre. This is an 18 percent reduction since land values peaked in 2014. Average land value changes by district varied from a 7 percent reduction in the North to a drop of 1 percent in the Southeast. Tillable grazing land saw the greatest decline of seven percent. The changes were particularly notable in the East and Central districts where values dropped 11 and 10 percent, respectively. However, tillable grazing land in the Southeast district was an exception and increased 2 percent. Two other categories, dryland cropland with no irrigation potential in the Northeast and nontillable grazing land in the Southeast, were the only others to see an increase. Survey participants identified crop prices and property tax levels as significantly contributing to the drop in land values. Land values and rental rates presented in the report are averages of survey participants’ responses by district. Actual land values and rental rates may vary depending upon the quality of the parcel and local market for an area. The complete results with Nebraska land values and cash rents are available online at https://agecon.unl.edu/ realestate/2018-farm-real-estate-report

TRADES CONSIDERED

The economic impact of using antimicrobials

By K-State Research and Extension News Kansas State University agricultural economists and veterinary medicine faculty members have completed an analysis of the economic impact of treating groups of high health-risk animals with antimicrobials, and they think their findings will help to inform public debate on the topic. Their work focused on the practice of metaphylaxis, or the mass treatment of a pen of high health-risk cattle to eliminate or minimize the onset of disease. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, metaphylaxis is used selectively by 59 percent of U.S. feedlots on 20.5 percent of all cattle placed on feed. The use of antimicrobials in livestock production is under intense public scrutiny, with many major restaurants, food service companies, supermarkets and others pressuring producers to use fewer antibiotics. “There’s a general sentiment and public policy concern about the use of antibiotics in animal production,” said Ted Schroeder, a livestock economist with K-State Research and Extension and University Distinguished Professor of agricultural economics. “Our study assessed the economic impacts on the beef cattle industry and on consumers of using metaphylaxis in the beef cattle industry.” Their major finding: if metaphylaxis were eliminated in the U.S. cattle industry without suitable health management alternatives, it could cost that industry as much as $1.8 billion annually. “We know that if metaphylaxis were not available, a reduction in revenue would result from reduced average daily gains, increased feed conversions, higher health costs from treating more sick animals, more deaths primarily for those high healthrisk animals,” among other factors, said Elliott Dennis, a KState doctoral student who worked on the study. “That reduction in profitability would then be passed up and down the beef supply chain, ultimately resulting in higher prices for consumers to pay for beef at the supermarket. Consumers, when facing higher beef prices at the supermarket would then (choose) other meat products besides beef.” The economists’ findings are based on data from 10 large Midwest feedlots in which they analyzed production and health management data from cattle that were classified as high health-risk and administered an antimicrobial upon entering the feedlot. They classified animals into three weight categories to determine differences between treating high health-risk animals compared with those not treated. They found that for 550-pound animals, producers would lose on average $104 per head by not treating those high healthrisk cattle. For 700-pound animals, they would be expected to lose about $99, and for 850-pound animals, the losses would be $64 per head. “We found that if metaphylaxis was not available for high health-risk cattle, it would reduce industry gross revenue by about 1 percent,” Dennis said. “That’s a sizable amount if metaphylaxis was not allowed to be used in feedlots on high health-risk cattle.” Schroeder noted that removing metaphylaxis or any animal health management technology from feedlots has a snowball effect. “A lot of that direct cost would be absorbed by the feedlot, but a very significant amount of it would go back to cow-calf producers who are supplying calves,” he said. “Even if they are supplying healthy calves, they are still going to be influenced because overall the feedlot sector’s costs get passed down because they are a margin-taker.” “So, it’s a very important issue not only for the feedlot sector, but for the cow-calf sector and consumers, as well.” Dennis said the agricultural economists plan to continue their analysis, looking more closely at options that producers may have for using different types of metaphylaxis drugs, “and what happens if they took away certain drugs, but allowed other drugs to be present. Kind of get down to the producer decision level so that we could create a tool for producers to look at the options they have when it comes to metaphylaxis use.” Schroeder said the current study and future work will nonetheless help to better inform those who make decisions regarding animal health management. “These studies take a long time to do; there is considerable research analyst time to complete projects like this,” he said. “Our goal was to make sure that as such policy options are being debated that at least folks are informed about what kinds of economic impacts alternative strategies like this could entail.” K-State’s study can be read online at http://www.agmanager. info/livestock-meat/cross-subject-areas/value-arrival-metaphylaxis-us-fed-cattle-industry.

Stay hydrated during warm summer months

By Julie Garden-Robinson, Food and Nutrition Specialist, NDSU Extension Like many people, I have been busy with yardwork lately. We have had a proliferation of miniature maple trees popping up all over our yard, thanks to hundreds (maybe thousands) of propellerlike seeds dropping from our tree. I wander around the yard every day, inspecting my pots and gardens for the telltale reddish stems and pointed leaves. Other than preventing a maple tree forest from sprouting in my yard, I really don’t need to check my plants several times per day. However, I love to watch plants grow and flourish with sunny days and regular rain. Sometimes, I almost catch my tomatoes growing before my eyes. OK, maybe my imagination is a bit overactive. We need to stay nourished and hydrated just like plants, especially when we work or play outside in the heat. Along with staying hydrated, be sure to wear a hat that protects your ears and neck, and SPF 30 sunscreen when you’re in the sun. Dehydration can be serious. We need to maintain our hydration level to help regulate processes such as body temperature and waste removal and carry nutrients and oxygen. We mainly lose water through perspiration, exhaling and urination. Symptoms of dehydration include nausea, sunken eyes, muscle cramps, clammy skin and rapid heartbeat. If you suspect you and/or someone under your care are dehydrated, contact a health-care provider immediately. Children, older adults and outdoor workers are especially vulnerable to dehydration. Illness, medications and age can affect water needs. When playing or working outside in warm weather, taking fluid breaks regularly is a good idea. How do you quench your thirst? Do you reach for a soda, lemonade, iced coffee or something else? We have a lot of choices available in the beverage category. Soft drink consumption has increased five times since the late 1960s. Kids are having sweetened soft drinks at younger ages, and the portion sizes of fountain drinks have increased drastically. Watch out for these “liquid calories” that provide few, if any, nutrients. Fruit-flavored beverages (punch, lemonade, fruit-flavored drinks), sweet tea, sports drinks and “regular” (not diet) soda contain added sweeteners and calories without nutrients. Scientists have named sweetened beverages one of the issues linked with higher obesity rates, which can increase our risk for chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Sweetened beverages can promote dental decay. In fact, while diet soft drinks do not have calories, the acid they contain is tough on teeth. One 12-ounce can of cola has about 10 teaspoons of sugar (as high-fructose corn syrup) and 150 calories. Cutting out one can of sweetened soda daily (and not consuming the calories in another way) could result in a 15-pound weight loss in a year. Along with choosing healthful beverage options, how much fluids do you need per day? The answer is, “It depends.” According to research, healthy people usually can use thirst to gauge their needs. The fluid intake of athletes, older adults, young children and people with medical conditions may need to be monitored more closely. On average, we need 8 or more total cups of fluids per day from foods and beverages. For nutrition and hydration, enjoy more fruits and vegetables. Aim for at least 4 1/2 cups of fruits and vegetables daily. On average, fruits and vegetables are at least 85 percent water by weight. Consider these tips as you enjoy the summer season. • Quench your thirst with water. Most kids do not need sports drinks to quench their thirst. • Make water, low-fat or fat-free milk or 100 percent juice options in your home. However, encourage family members to eat whole fruit more often than they drink fruit juice for the fiber advantage. • Take water on the go in a reusable water bottle. If you are purchasing a water bottle, look for one without a lot of crevices that are hard to clean. Reusable water bottles are easy on the environment, convenient and cost-effective. Wash water bottles thoroughly between uses. If your water bottle is dishwasher-safe, run it through the cleaning and sanitizing cycle. • Save money at restaurants by ordering water when dining CONTINUED ON PAGE B23

out and drinking water from the tap at home. • Enjoy an occasional sweetened beverage but have a smaller portion. Split a can of soda pop or try the smaller cans. • Read and compare Nutrition Facts labels to learn more about sugar, calories and nutrients in your favorite beverages. If plain water is kind of boring, try infusing water with fruit and/or herbs. This week, I’m featuring flavor-infused water ideas as the “recipe of the week.” Maybe you are growing some fresh herbs, such as mint or rosemary; they can be used to flavor water as well as foods. Be creative and invent some new flavor sensations. How to Make Flavor-infused Water Start with clean hands, containers, cutting boards and knives. Rinse fruit and herbs thoroughly. Try one of these flavor add-ins. If you would like a stronger flavor, add more of the ingredient. Refrigerate overnight. Don’t mix batches; use up the batch, clean the container and make a new batch. • Blackberry mint: 20 blackberries plus 20 mint leaves plus 2 quarts water • Citrus water: 1/2 cup sliced oranges, lemons, limes or grapefruit plus 2 quarts water • Strawberry kiwi water: 3 sliced strawberries plus 1 peeled, sliced kiwi plus 2 quarts water • Watermelon rosemary water: 2 cups seedless water melon (cut in chunks or balls) plus 1 sprig rosemary plus 2 quarts water • Raspberry lime water: 20 crushed raspberries plus 2 sliced limes (without rind) plus 2 quarts water

Horses in mourning

In the era of Genghis Khan of the Mongolian Empire, horses were sacrificed to be used by fallen warriors in the hereafter. Primitive northern European beliefs incorporated riderless horses into funerals to signify the need for the fallen warrior to ride in heaven. In the U.S. military, it is tradition to have a riderless horse wearing ornamental tack (called a caparisoned horse) follow the casket of the nation’s president (the military’s commander-in-chief), or any army or marine corps officer of high status. Riding boots are placed in the stirrups backward to symbolize that the deceased person will never ride again.

##### Minnesota In Minnesota, any game in which participants attempt to capture a greased or oiled pig is illegal. The same laws also prohibits turkey scrambles. Let’s assume legislators were more concerned with animal cruelty than human stupidity.

Vermeer bale processors help you make the best use of your bales with the least amount of labor, and give you the versatility you need to process round bales or large square bales with an optional kit. Changing the feeding location promotes a healthier open-range feeding environment and reduces manure-handling issues. Each processor quickly unrolls bales into windrows that give all the cattle equal feeding room. As the bales are processed, dust and mold are blown away and the hay is aerated, becoming more palatable for your herd. Reclaim and protect seeding areas by mulching straw and spreading it up to 40' (12.19 m) away.

By NDSU Extension Service Gary Secor, a professor in North Dakota State University’s (NDSU) Plant Pathology Department, is one of three scientists worldwide to receive the 2018 Industry Award from the World Potato Congress. He received the award during the 10th World Potato Congress, which was held in Cusco, Peru. Secor has been involved in potato industry research and education for more than 40 years. In 1978, he joined the NDSU Plant Pathology Department, where his research has focused on potato disease diagnosis, disease management, biotechnology and variety development. He served as interim director of NDSU’s potato breeding program for three years. Recently, he has concentrated on late blight management, fungicide resistance management in potatoes and sugar beets, postharvest diseases in potatoes, the expanding host range of the disease Fusarium graminearum, Fusarium yellows disease in sugar beets and unraveling the zebra chip disease complex in potatoes. “It is special to get an award from the industry I have enjoyed working with for 47 years,” he says. “Getting an award like this is not just for one person but is the result of many people working together and supporting each other - students, technical support, colleagues, staff, allied industry collaborators. It takes an industry to identify and solve problems. This is a great honor for me.” The Bozeman, Montana, native received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Montana State University. He earned his doctorate in plant pathology from the University of California, Davis, in 1977. He began his career in Montana as director of the first potato virus testing lab. During his career, Secor has published information on numerous potato diseases that have had a substantial impact on the industry. He has discovered several new diseases, including the zebra chip. In addition, he has authored more than 91 publications and 12 book chapters and delivered more than 300 national and 100 international presentations in 21 countries. He also established a long-term potato project with the potato industry in Chile. Secor is recognized for his ability to explain technical information in a clear and understandable way. He received the Meritorious Service Award from the Northern Plains Potato Growers Association in 1996, Recognition Award from the Latin American Potato Association in 2004 and Economic Development Award from the National Potato Association of Chile in 2017. “This award reflects both the excellent relations that Dr. Secor has established and maintained with the potato industry and the excellent international reputation he has developed while at NDSU,” says Jack Rasmussen, a professor and the chair of NDSU’s Plant Pathology Department. “He is a deserving recipient of the award.”

ASAS honors K-State professor

By K-State Research and Extension News Kansas State University animal science professor Joel DeRouchey has received the prestigious Extension Award from the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS), recognizing his work at the university for the past 17 years. “The ASAS Extension Award recognizes the impact that (DeRouchey) has had on livestock producers and places him among the elite extension specialists in the world,” said Mike Tokach, University Distinguished Professor in animal sciences and swine extension specialist. “We are proud to have him on our team at K-State.” DeRouchey grew up on a diversified purebred livestock operation in Pukwana, South Dakota. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree from South Dakota State University, and his master’s and PhD from Kansas State University. He is currently an extension specialist in livestock nutrition and environmental management at K-State. His extension expertise is providing livestock producers with nutrition, regulatory and manure management compliance information. DeRouchey also provides leadership in training the next generation of swine producers by coordinating numerous youth activities to increase swine industry knowledge and awareness of career opportunities in swine production. DeRouchey works with the productive applied swine team that maintains 13 master’s and PhD students. He has co-authored more than 151 journal papers, 380 abstracts and 594 extension publications. He has been a co-advisor or active committee member for more than 50 master’s and PhD graduates. Joel and his wife, Julene, have three children, James, Jenna and Jacob. ##### When do you replace automobile tires? Rotate tires every 5000-10,000 miles, and tires will last longer.

White mold of canola risk

From Northern Canola Growers Association Recent rains and canola entering bloom have prompted questions about white mold and fungicide applications on canola. Below we try to answer some questions about white mold on canola. Why is canola susceptible at bloom? Unlike many other pathogens, Sclerotinia (the white mold pathogen) needs flower petals to cause infection. The ascospores can easily digest flower petals, and once the process starts, the disease will quickly spread into branches and stems and can result in yield losses and lodging. Recommendations for fungicide applications begin at early bloom (usually 2050%) because the earliest infections have the longest time to develop. Consequently, they tend to be lower on the plant and cause greater yield loss. What conditions are favorable for infection? Essentially, the answer is cool and wet. Prior to bloom that pathogen needs water in the soil. Wet soil will allow the sclerotia (the hard black overwintering structure) to germinate, form small mushroom (apothecia) and release ascospores. A minimum of 1-2 inches of rain 1-2 weeks before bloom can initiate germination. During bloom, anything that keeps the canopy wet for prolonged periods of time will facilitate infection. Multiple days of rainfall, very heavy dews, fog, etc… will provide enough water for infection to start. The wild card here is temperature. We rarely see much white mold when daytime highs are 85 F or higher, but the disease can run rampant when high temperatures are in the 60’s and low 70’s F. What’s the risk now? Often, it is a mixed bag across the region. Fields that have had more rainfall, a history of disease, and cooler conditions are at greatest risk. The NDSU Sclerotinia stem rot (SSR) Risk Map and Risk Calculator for Canola, operated by NDSU Canola Pathologist Dr. Luis del Rio and funded by the Northern Canola Growers Association, are useful tools that can be used to help producers determine risk. However, please remember that this map is only relevant when canola is in bloom and that the map is only as good as the weather data used to generate it. NDAWN (North Dakota Agriculture Weather Network) is a fantastic resource, and the envy of most other states, but rainfall can be extremely variable even at a field level. The most recent risk map (6/26/18) indicates that risk is highly variable throughout the state, and that can change quickly. The risk map and risk calculator can be found online at http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/sclerotinia and through the Northern Canola Growers Association website, http:// www.northerncanola.com/. The map and calculator are also available through the Canola Doctor application for Android and iOS-based devices. The application is free and can be downloaded from Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store. The risk maps are updated daily between June 16 and July 31. Fungicides. If growers determine that a fungicide application is warranted, application timing is very important. Targeting the early bloom stages is ideal (commonly 20%). Pictures and descriptions of bloom stages can be found in the NDSU Extension Publication Sclerotinia of Canola PP-1410 http:// www.northerncanola.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/ Sclerotinia-Control-in-Canola.pdf. Our data demonstrates that multiple fungicides can be effective.

World Mosquito Day

Date When Celebrated: Always August 20th World Mosquito Day commemorates the day when the relationship between mosquitos and malaria was identified. Malaria is an infectious disease caused by parasitic protozoans. On this day in 1897, the link between mosquitos and the transmission of malaria was discovered by British doctor Sir Ronald Ross. Ross also identified that the female Anopheles mosquito transmits the disease. In 1902, Ross was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for his discovery About 1,500 cases of malaria are diagnosed in the United States each year. The vast majority of these cases are travelers and immigrants entering the U.S. from parts of the world where malaria is common. The goal of this special day, is to raise awareness of causes of Malaria, and to to learn methods of prevention. With the knowledge that mosquitoes carry other diseases, most notably the dangerous Zika virus, it is even more important today, to be aware, and to understand the necessity of avoid coming in contact with mosquitos. The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine celebrates World Mosquito Day annually, since the 1930s,. They hold exhibitions and parties designed to entertain and to inform people. Did You Know? At least two million people die each year from malaria and other mosquito born diseases. The Origin of World Mosquito Day: Sir Ronald Ross declared the annual observance of World Mosquito Day. He did so shortly after his discovery of the linkage between mosquitos and malaria. He felt that this day should be known as World Mosquito Day in future years, to act as a reminder of the educational importance of knowing that mosquitos transmit malaria. ##### In 2017, the U.S. government allocated $11,222 per student in public school expenditures.

MSU researchers pioneer using wool for erosion control CONTINUED FROM PAGE C2

Rob Ament unfurls a wool erosion control blanket on May 22, 2018 at WTI in Bozeman. MSU photo by Adrian Sanchez-Gonzalez.

But they were prohibitively expensive to ship and weren’t designed specifically for revegetation. “We had to be creative and work with wool producers here in Montana,” he said. Ament and Pokorny traveled to three Montana mills and worked with them to produce shredded wool, which was then sent to a Minnesota manufacturer with the specialized equipment for blending the wool with straw to produce the erosion blankets. The researchers then seeded the Highway 287 road cut with native grasses and laid down the wool erosion blankets side by side with various other erosion blankets. They observed the site periodically and measured the growth of the grasses over the course of three years. “We don’t know what mechanisms, exactly, give wool an advantage,” Ament said. He suspects that the wool holds more moisture for a longer period. And wool, which is about 17 percent nitrogen, likely has a fertilizing effect on the plants as it slowly biodegrades. Ament said that wool also appears to adhere

better to soil on steep embankments. Johnson, who graduated from MSU in 1978 with a bachelor’s in range science, said he thought the results indicated that the wool erosion control blankets were better than the industry standard in terms of establishing vegetation and preventing soil erosion. “I think this really has a future,” he said. “There’s a lot more opportunity for testing wool for erosion control,” Pokorny added. Montana ranked fifth in the nation for its wool crop in 2016, according to the Montana Wool Growers Association. The state’s ranchers produced 1.8 million pounds of wool valued at $3.42 million. Ament noted that if wool were widely adopted for erosion control, it could support local manufacturing of the blankets as well as create a significant new market for Montana’s wool growers. Low-grade wool that is otherwise discarded could potentially be used. “There’s a lot of wool that’s not valued in the market that could be used for this,” he said.

Funding will help schools with procurement, distribution of local foods

Producers and students throughout Montana have reason to celebrate, as the Montana Department of Agriculture (MDA) has been awarded a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to enhance farm to school efforts throughout the state. MDA was awarded $99,980 and will partner with the National Center for Appropriate Technology and Montana Farm to School to increase the procurement and distribution of local food in K-12 schools in Montana. “Farm to school initiatives continue to grow throughout Montana and this grant will build upon those efforts,” said Ben Thomas, Director of MDA. “When we can give our producers another market opportunity, while also providing our students with nutritious, local foods, everyone wins.” The project will focus on three school districts in Montana: Browning, Fort Benton, and Malta. Each of these districts are in the early stages of implementing farm to school activities but have limited access to local foods. Sourcing and access to Montana foods is one of the key challenges to farm to school initiatives in Montana. The Montana Farm to School Leadership Team will research distribution opportunities and challenges on a statewide level while learning first-hand from the participating school

districts. By coordinating with state-level farm to school partners, including supply-chain stakeholders, and bringing together local teams in each of the communities, the project will create a plan that will impact the entire state. “By working with local-level teams in these communities, we expect to expand connectivity and distribution of local foods throughout the state, especially in north and eastern Montana,” said Aubree Roth, Montana Farm to School Coordinator, Montana Team Nutrition. “Our larger goal here is to take the lessons learned from this project, and scale it up so that we can better implement these activities on a statewide level.” The Montana Farm to School Leadership Team, sponsored by Montana Office of Public Instruction, works through partnerships across the state to build farm to school initiatives that help kids eat healthy, connect kids with agriculture and nutrition through education, support Montana farmers and food producers, foster economic vitality, and strengthen communities. The Montana Department of Agriculture’s mission is to protect producers and consumers, and to enhance and develop agriculture and allied industries.

VJ Day

Date When Celebrated: August 14th - Japan surrenders August 15th - Surrender announced to the world September 2 - Ceremony and formal signing of surrender VJ Day marks the end of WWII, and the cessation of fighting against Japan. It is called “Victory In Japan Day or “Victory Over Japan Day”. The confusion over three dates: There is some confusion over what date is V-J Day. You can consider any (or all) three dates as V-J Day. President Harry S. Truman caused some of this confusion........ On August 14, 1945, the Japanese government cabled to the U.S. their surrender. This is the date of most modern observances. On August 15, 1945, news of the surrender was announced to the world. This sparked spontaneous celebrations over the final ending of World War II. On September 2, 1945, a formal surrender ceremony was held in Tokyo Bay aboard the USS Missouri. At the time, President Truman declared September 2 to be VJ Day. Regardless of which day you view as VJ Day, World War II was finally over. A Little VJ Day History The war in the Pacific was hard fought and bloody. The tide had definitely turned, and the U.S. military was fighting island by island towards Japan. Resistance was fierce. Casualties on both sides were high. The U.S. had developed the atomic bomb. The U.S. government was anxious to end the war, and stop the loss of American lives. On August 6th, 1945, the United States military dropped an atomic bomb over the city of Hiroshima, Japan in an effort to force Japan into an immediate, unconditional surrender. Instead of immediately surrendering, the Japanese government debated what to do. So, the U.S. dropped a second atomic bomb on August 9, 1945 over the city of Nagasaki, Japan. On August 14, 1945, Japanese Emperor Hirohito cabled the U.S. to surrender, and agreed to the terms of the Potsdam Declaration. On August 15, 1945, news of the surrender was announced to the world. World War II was finally over. Hostilities ended. On September 2, 1945, the Japanese formally surrendered aboard the U.S. battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. President Truman declared this to be V-J Day. Did You Know? The battleship USS Missouri was chosen for the formal surrender ceremony, as she was named after President Truman’s home state.

Why price slide important marketing factor

By University of Wyoming Extension Why price slides at livestock markets and in forward price contracts are important when making production and marketing decisions is explained in a new publication from the University of Wyoming (UW) Extension. Price slide is the naturally occurring phenomenon that cattle prices tend to decrease as an animal’s weight increases. What is the Price Slide?, B-1319, is available for viewing or free download by going to www.uwyo.edu/uwe and clicking on Find a Publication. Enter the title or number. If making operational changes to increase weaning weights – for example, buying more expensive bulls or shifting calving dates – understanding how that decision affects calf values, not just weights, can be important, stated the authors. Understanding how price slide affects forward contracts can help producers decide whether or not to deliver calves that are under or over the agreed-upon weight. Bulletin authors are UW Extension agricultural systems specialist John Ritten, extension livestock marketing specialist Bridger Feuz, beef cattle specialist Steve Paisley and extension educator Hudson Hill. For more information, contact Ritten at 307-766-3373 or john.ritten@uwyo.edu, or Feuz at 307-783-0570 or bmfeuz@uwyo.edu. “What is the Price Slide?” is among many free guides, courses and videos from UW Extension to help extend skills in ranching, irrigation, small acreage management, succession, legacy and estate planning and more. YouTube video series from UW Extension include “Barnyards and Backyards,” “From the Ground Up” and “Exploring the Nature of Wyoming.”

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR News Nebraska 4-H is using monarch butterflies to demonstrate to youth how agriculture can be fun while also having a real-world impact. The “Monarchs on the Move Challenge” was part of the 4-H Ag Innovators Experience, which is an annual interactive event featuring a new agricultural topic each year. The activity is designed to challenge youth to apply critical thinking and science, technology, engineering and mathematical skills to a real-world agriculture challenge. The program reaches 5,000 youth in five states, including Nebraska where 1,800 youth have participated. Nebraska 4-H is a long-standing recipient of the 4-H Ag Innovators Experience grant, which supports the delivery of the program. This year’s challenge focused on the challenges affecting the monarch butterfly’s survival rates. The monarch butterfly is a flagship species representing many pollinators that contribute to our food supply and the health of our planet. Over 30 teens leading activities in 27 Nebraska counties learned how everyone can contribute to increasing the monarch habitat to support sustainable monarch populations. In addition, several Rwandan students attending the University of Nebraska–Lincoln also participated in the challenge. The students are a part of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Undergraduate Scholarship Program. During the activity, participants built models and reviewed habitats in order to understand the collaborative efforts involved in increasing the monarch’s habitat. According to the participants, the challenge made them more aware of their surroundings and helped them foster an appreciation for the monarch life cycle. “Now, I’m looking for other ways I can make a difference for the monarch butterfly; if we all do our part, everyone can benefit and help our planet become more resourceful,” said Lauren Zack, who led the Monarchs on the Move program in Wilber. “I am thankful that 4-H is preparing me to be a confident, resourceful leader, so that both now and in the future, I can make a difference.” For Galayna Erickson of Culbertson, Monarchs on the Move helped her understand the relationship between the agricultural landscape and biodiversity. “So much of the land we have could be turned into crops or plots for pollinators that would be so helpful to the world around us. I hope that the children I worked with as a teen leader walked away from the program understanding how important agriculture is to our everyday lives,” said Erickson.

National Honey Bee Day

Date When Celebrated: Third Saturday in August What’s the Buzz?! Why today is National Honey Bee Day! Let’s celebrate and show our appreciation for the hard working Honey Bee, who works so hard to produce the liquid sugary treat, that is loved so much by bees and humans. Speaking of hard working, did you know that many bees have to travel 55,000 miles to produce just one pound of honey? To get that pound of honey, those bees need to gather nectar from two million flowers. A single bee will gather just a1/2 teaspoon of honey in its lifetime. After all of this hard work, honey bees deserve this special day of recognition. This day was first established in 2009 for beekeepers, as a way to promote honey and to encourage educational programs. But, this is too special a day to limit to the beekeepers. We appreciate hard working honey bees, too. After all, they produce honey that we enjoy, and they are vital to the pollination of a wide array of our fruits and vegetables. Now, that’s certainly something to appreciate! Origin of National Honey Bee Day: National Honey Bee Day was created in 2009. This sweet day was declared by Thomas J. Vilsek, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, on August 11, 2009. It is sponsored by Pennsylvania Agriculture, Inc. It was originally intended for beekeepers, as a day of education and promotion of honey bees and honey. The third Saturday in August was selected, so beekeepers would have a new supply of honey to promote. This holiday is a true “National” day, as it was declared by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture

Know what your plants need before fertilizing

By Kym Pokorny, Oregon State University Extension In a perfect world, garden plants would feed themselves. As it is, we’ve got to help them along sometimes. Plants take up nutrients from the soil but when those nutrients are missing, it’s time for fertilizer. “Plants pull out nutrients as they grow,” said Weston Miller, a horticulturist with Oregon State University (OSU) Extension Service. “Unless they’re put back in, the plant suffers.” But knowing which fertilizer to choose, how much to apply and which plants to feed is not always obvious. Knowing the plants’ needs makes all the difference. “You need to know what plants you have and what their requirements are,” Miller said. “Doing research up front really pays off.” Most landscape trees and shrubs and many perennials don’t need fertilizer at all unless they’re showing signs of stress like yellowing foliage. “Prepare the soil by adding compost or other organic material well ahead of planting, you can have a fabulous landscape that needs very little fertilizer,” he said. Annuals are heavy feeders and should be hit weekly with a fertilizer that dissolves in water, especially if growing in containers. Vegetables also need plenty of nutrients. At planting time, incorporate fertilizer as indicated on the label. Early in the season also use a water-soluble version to get plants off to a good start. For corn and garlic, feed two to three times with a fertilizer high in nitrogen (the N in the N-P-K on the label). Blood meal is a good choice for organic gardeners, Miller said. The rest of the time, watch for yellowing foliage. If the plant starts to look stressed, add some fertilizer. Fruit trees and berries, especially blueberries, are heavy feeders and will be more productive if fertilizer is added at the right time. Each type of plant has specific guidelines. You can search the Extension catalog for publications about specific plants like Growing Strawberries in Your Home Garden (https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/ec1307) and Growing Blueberries in Your Home Garden (https:// catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/ec1304). How you fertilize lawn depends on a couple of things. If you irrigate and want a green lawn in summer, feed at least twice a year. Use the “holiday” schedule of Memorial Day and Thanksgiving. Always use a spreader to get good coverage and avoid over fertilizing. If you mulch mow and allow the clippings, which are high in nitrogen, to stay on the lawn that is equivalent to one application. If you choose to let your lawn go dormant, one feeding a year can keep the lawn more competitive against weeds. Some plants like roses and hydrangeas can benefit from more feeding than many other shrubs in the garden. You can find fertilizers labeled specifically for them, as you can for plants that like an acid (low pH) soil. These include blueberries, gardenias, rhododendrons and citrus. Plants don’t care if they get nutrients from organic or synthetic fertilizers, Miller noted. It’s all the same to them. Organic fertilizer ingredients are made from plant, animal or mineral sources. Examples are alfalfa meal, kelp, blood and bone meal, soft rock phosphate and green sand. Inorganic are derived from a chemical manufacturing process. All fertilizers have a ratio, which is the percentage by weight of N-P-K (nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium). Generally, nitrogen is used by plants to produce green growth, phosphorous for roots and potassium for flower and fruit development. A balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 is a good choice for vegetables and other high-nutrient plants. If you’re looking for an organic fertilizer check to see if they have OMRI on the label. For vegans and vegetarians, avoid fish, blood and bone meal products. For inorganic products, choose a slow-release fertilizer. If all the nutrients aren’t needed by the plant, the fertilizer can percolate down into the ground water or run off into waterways causing pollution. Lime is a soil amendment to raise the pH, an important consideration for vegetables. For those gardeners living west of the Cascades, applying lime is recommended by a soil test or based on the label of lime products. Always water in fertilizer after applying and don’t forget to read the instructions. Using too much can burn plants. For additional information on fertilizing, refer to OSU Extension’s Fertilizing Your Garden (https://catalog.extension. oregonstate.edu/ec1503) and Growing Your Own (https:// catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/ pdf/em9027.pdf).


Late planting of sorghum for hay or grazing

By Brent Bean, Ph.D., Sorghum Checkoff Director of Agronomy and Kim McCuistion, Ph.D., Sorghum Checkoff Animal Nutrition Director Drought conditions over the last several months have left many regions short on hay or forage for grazing. However, growers still have time to plant forage sorghums to partially fill this need since only 60 days of growing season are required to produce a hay crop. Several types of forage sorghums are available and versatile enough to fit many different cropping and livestock systems. These forage sorghums are considered drought tolerant yet respond well to favorable rainfall conditions. When managed properly, they can provide excellent hay or grazing and can be used in emergencies to replace failed crops due to drought, hail or other weather calamities at minimal costs. Forage sorghum also serves as an excellent cover crop, suppressing weeds and protecting the soil from wind and water erosion. Although sorghum of any type can be used for hay or grazing, a sorghum-sudangrass cross or a sudangrass is usually a best choice. These varieties have smaller diameter stalks, which improve dry down for hay and palatability for cattle versus forage sorghums normally used for silage. They are sold as conventional, brown midrib (BMR), photoperiod sensitive (PS), and sterile varieties that do not produce grain. The BMR varieties have less lignin, making them generally more digestible and higher quality than conventional varieties. As a trade-off for higher quality, these varieties can possess a greater tendency to lodge. If the sorghum is used for grazing, then lodging will not be an issue. In grazing trials, BMR varieties have shown to improve daily gain by as much as 0.75 pounds per day. The PS varieties have an advantage in total yield when planted early. However, this advantage decreases when planted later because day length becomes shorter. Seeding rate varies depending on end use, planting method, row spacing and potential rainfall or irrigation. Typically, when planted with a drill, seeding rates range from 15 to 25 pounds of seed per acre. Nitrogen needs also vary, but normally 60 to 90 pounds applied prior to planting is sufficient. Growers should apply less nitrogen as the planting date is delayed and yield potential is decreased. Growers can visit with a seed company agronomist or extension forage specialist for seeding rates and other considerations for their region. Sugarcane aphids also can become a greater problem in late-planted sorghum, making an insecticide seed treatment a good recommendation for 30 to 40 days of control. Cattle should be allowed to graze sorghum once it has reached a height of 18 to 24 inches to prevent issues with nitrates or prussic acid. Research using BMR and PS sorghum-sudangrasses has produced average daily gains between 2 and 3 pounds per head per day over an 80-day grazing period. To take full advantage of a later planting date, higher stocking rates can be used over a shorter timeframe. Typical stocking rates range between 1.5 and 2.5 stockers per acre. Gains per head and gains per acre vary greatly based on forage growth conditions, grazing management, cattle condition/weight and stocking rate. For hay production, sorghum can be cut any time after it has reached a height of 30 inches. Quality of the forage, particularly crude protein, will decrease as the sorghum matures. A good rule of thumb for producing both quality and tonnage of forage is to harvest sorghum at the boot stage, which is just prior to heading. Though usually not an issue, growers should be aware of potential nitrate toxicity and prussic acid poisoning under drought conditions or when an early frost occurs late in the season. These issues are a greater concern when sorghum is grazed than when it is hayed. Prussic acid largely dissipates when hay is properly cured.

Avoid overgrazing your pastures

By PennState Extension Most grazers rely on cool season pastures to sustain their animals. Growth of cool season grasses nearly come to a standstill when temperatures hit 80°F, which often causes a problem for grazers. This condition of slowed growth is referred to as the ‘summer slump’ in pasture production. Farmers should watch for overgrazing in these pastures because it can lead to many problems. 1. Overgrazing reduces the ‘solar panel’ for regrowth. Meaning that once temperatures decrease again, your regrowth will be slower. The solar panel of a plant refers to the leafy areas and the plants ability to capture energy from the sun to produce the needed carbohydrates for regrowth. 2. Overgrazing damages the root system. Because the small leaf area cannot capture the photosynthetic energy to sustain a healthy root mass, pastures are more susceptible to drought – further increasing your exposure to the summer slump. 3. The weak, overgrazed pasture will be highly susceptible to interrill, rill and gully erosion, which can lead to: loss of valuable topsoil; reduction in soil organic matter; and reduction in nitrogen pool to feed your forage. 4. Overgrazing increases soil compaction. With limited grazing sources, animals tend to congregate leading to higher risk of soil compaction due to hoof pressure. This, coupled with the already damaged root systems, will almost certainly lead to compaction issues. By having animal numbers that reflect plant production during this summer slump, you can avoid most of the negative effects resulting from over grazing. You can also supplement with hay or haylage but remember that the cost of harvested feed is at least twice that of grazed forage (even if you make it yourself), increasing your yearly feed bill dramatically. Intensifying your grazing management is another way to increase productivity of your pasture. By concentrating the animals in small paddocks and letting the paddocks rest, will reduce issues related to compaction and allow your forage to regrow to a desired height before re-grazing. Part of good grazing management is also to leave an appropriate amount of vegetation for regrowth - guidelines vary but in general you should leave 5 inches or more. Diversification of forage species is another strategy for beating the summer slump. This involves either using warm season annuals or perennials adapted to temperatures up to and exceeding 90°F, which are species like switchgrass or mixes of big bluestem and Indian grass. Warm season perennial species take some effort to establish when compared to cool season species and should be allowed to grow for around a year before grazing. However, once established, warm season species offer the added benefits of low-maintenance and drought tolerant, and stand longevity – under proper management, warm season perennials can be productively grazed for 20 years or more. Warm season annuals that can help alleviate the summer slump are sorghum-sudan, sudan grass, pearl millet, or Japanese millet, which is adapted to poorly drained soil. Warm season annuals can be planted now or even after small grain harvest. By using Management Intensive Grazing that includes warm season annuals and perennials, your farm can become more productive and profitable.

National Aviation Day

Date When Celebrated: Always August 19th National Aviation Day is in honor of the birthday of aviator Orville Wright. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were pioneer aviators in the United States. Orville was the first person to successfully fly an airplane. His first flight was December 17, 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. This inaugural flight was soon to change the skies forever. It’s heavier than air, and it flies! National Aviation Day honors the accomplishments of Orville and Wilbur Wright. It is sometimes called Wright Brother’s Day. To a lesser degree, National Aviation Day sometimes honors other early aviation and space pioneers. This day was selected, as it is Orville Wrights’s birthday. (August 19, 1871) Origin of National Aviation Day: This special day was created by a presidential proclamation by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939.

River Creek Farms, Mertz family – Part 2

By K-State Research and Extension News The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture and two U.S. senators enter the room. That sounds like a description of a Washington, D.C. hearing room, but in this case, it refers to what happened recently in the stone barn of a leading farm family in rural Kansas. Recently we learned about longtime agricultural leaders Jeanne and Harold Mertz of River Creek Farms near Manhattan. Today, River Creek Farms is owned by two of their sons, Joe and Bob, and their wives Kim and Mary, respectively. The Mertz farm recently hosted the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture for a meeting with Kansas farm leaders. As the name River Creek Farm suggests, their farm ground is situated near a river. That means it is good fertile bottomland with water nearby, but it also can be risky during flooding. During the 1951 flood, floodwaters devastated downtown Manhattan and struck the Mertz farm and others. Jeanne and her one-month-old baby son Joe were evacuated from the farm by boat. After the floodwaters receded, the Mertzes returned to the farm. They built a diversified crop and livestock operation, situated between the rural communities of Zeandale and Wabaunsee, population 517 people. Now, that’s rural. Harold and Jeanne raised five children: Joe, Tom, Bob, Jon, and sister Jane. Tom is CEO and owner of a company in Gardner. Jon works at the Flint Hills Discovery Center in Manhattan, and Jane Mertz Garcia is a faculty member at K-State. Joe came back to the farm after graduating from K-State in agriculture and serving on the livestock judging team. His judging experience and studies in the animal sciences department at K-State led him to suggest to his father that they try something new: He suggested that he would artificially inseminate their Polled Hereford cows with semen from Simmental bulls. His parents agreed and the resulting hybrid vigor was excellent. Meanwhile, Joe met and married Kim Newell. His parents moved to a neighboring house, so Joe and Kim began their married life in the same house that Joe’s father and grandfather had begun their married lives. Joe and Kim went on to raise four kids on the farm: Asher, Lincoln, Malia and Abram. In 1985, the Mertzs began offering purebred Simmental bulls for sale by private treaty. They later branched into Simmental-Angus cross bulls and offer a bull sale annually. Joe’s younger brother Bob also went to K-State and competed on the livestock judging team. After graduation, Bob went to work for the National Livestock and Meat Board in Chicago for six years. Here he met a young lady named Mary. They married and also returned to the farm. Bob and Mary had two children, Lisa and David. Harold and Jeanne were proud that all six of their grandchildren got undergrad and/or post-graduate degrees from K-State. Today, Joe manages the livestock while Bob has responsibility for the crops. River Creek Farms includes 3,600 acres of crop production which Bob has advanced technologically and sustainably. The Mertzs also have what has been described as one of the premier Simmental and SimAngus herds in the country. As the farm website says: “Our guiding principles throughout have remained the same: calving ease and disposition, a sincere focus on end-product value and harnessing the benefits of hybrid vigor. These cornerstones remain in place to this day and characterize every bull we sell, even if much has changed over the past 125 years.” In 2018, Senator Pat Roberts, the chairman of the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee, was looking for a farm to host the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture for a meeting with Kansas farm leaders. The location they chose was River Creek Farms, owned by the Mertz family. It’s time to leave this meeting of the USDA Secretary and the senators, held on a family farm in a rural valley near Manhattan, Kansas. We commend Joe and Kim and Bob and Mary Mertz and their families for making a difference in Kansas agriculture. And there’s more. Another generation of the Mertz family is making its mark in the livestock industry in another innovative way. We’ll learn about that next time. Audio and text files of Kansas Profiles are available at http://www.kansasprofile.com.

When hail strikes, Nebraska Extension has answers

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR News When hail strikes and growers have questions, Nebraska Extension has new resources to answer them through a program called “Hail Know.” Annually, hail causes over $1 billion in economic losses. In Nebraska, hail-producing storms are common during the planting and growing seasons. Half of all hailstorms occur during the early stages of corn growth. This often causes frustration and anxiety for growers concerned about the fate of their crops and whether additional management or replanting is warranted. “Hail Know was created to build upon and expand Extension’s hail-related programs,” said Ashley Mueller, Nebraska Extension’s disaster education coordinator and leader of the Hail Know project. “In the aftermath of a hailstorm we want growers to know that they can turn to Nebraska Extension for the answers and certainty they need to make sound, research-based decisions to manage their crop.” Hail Know features videos, graphics and articles by a team of extension experts in climate science, agronomy, engineering, agricultural technology, economics and disaster education. Hail forms when warm updrafts in thunderstorms carry raindrops upward into extremely cold areas of the atmosphere. Hail can occur anywhere in the world; however, the topography and geography of the United States favor the development of tornadoes and strong hail-producing thunderstorms. In Nebraska, 70 percent of hail events occur from May to July, peak growing season for Nebraska producers. In recent weeks, severe storms with hail left behind a wake of destruction in corn and soybean fields in parts of central and eastern Nebraska. Through Hail Know, growers can learn how to conduct a crop damage assessment. The assessment offers factors to consider when assessing damage early-season, in-season and late-season. When deciding whether to replant corn or soybeans, Hail Know recommends considering the yield potential of the replanted crop, previously applied herbicides and relative maturity of the crop, among other factors, when assessing the damage. “The best advice following a hailstorm is to have patience. Emotions run high when hail decimates fields, but it’s best to wait seven to 10 days following the storm to allow for plant recovery before assessing damage,” said Mueller. In addition to damage assessment, Hail Know also offers information on hail formation and storms, crop insurance and risk management, replanting consideration, managing a recovering crop and cover crops. To learn more about Hail Know, visit cropwatch. unl.edu/hailknow or follow Hail Know on Twitter at @ HailKnowUNL. The development of Hail Know was funded by a USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture Smith-Lever special needs grant with matching funds from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

National Trail Mix Day

Date When Celebrated: Always August 31st National Trail Mix Day features a high energy, tasty treat for the trail or snacks. You can buy packages of trail mix at a store. Or, you can make up your own, using the ingredients you like best. When you head out to a campout, a hike or to go biking, take the Trail Mix along with you. It provides the extra energy boost to keep you from getting tired and running out of energy along the trail. Don’t limit trail mix to the trail. It is also good at campouts. How to make Trail Mix: Ask each hiker or camper to bring a box or bag of their favorite cereal, nuts, pretzels, raisins, dried fruit, M&Ms, etc. For younger hikers or new members of the group, it’s best to provide them with a list of the types of food that can go into trail mix. That way, the inexperienced hiker won’t bring something that can not be easily carried. At the campout or before the hike, bring the group together and mix all the food in a big, big bowl. Put the mix into sealable baggies and pass them out to each hiker. Tips: When making your own trail mix, avoid messy items that leave your hands sticky. Also avoid too many salty items. For example, unsalted nuts is better than salted ones.

MSU faculty see troubling soil acidity levels in Montana agricultural lands

Montana State University scientists are seeing increased soil acidity, meaning low pH, in parts of the state and are urging farmers to keep an eye on their plants and soils to avoid lower crop yields and even crop failure. Clain Jones, a soil fertility specialist with MSU Extension and a professor in the MSU College of Agriculture’s Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences, said fields in 20 Montana counties have been found to have pH levels that could harm crop growth. “This is an emerging issue in the state, where low soil pH has traditionally not been a concern,” Jones said. Acidity is measured on the pH scale, which counts the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution. It goes from zero to 14, with lower numbers being more acidic. Fields with soil acidity levels below pH 5 can experience significant yield loss from aluminum toxicity, depending on the crop species. Durum and barley are particularly sensitive to low pH and aluminum toxicity, but other crops can also be affected, according to Rick Engel, professor of soils in the Department of Land Resources and Environmental Sciences. In acidic soils, naturally occurring metals like aluminum become more available to plants, Engel said. Research by Engel, Jones and others indicates that ammonium fertilizers, including urea, are the major cause of soil acidification, especially when more fertilizer nitrogen is applied than crops can use. Acidity problems can then start in low-lying parts of fields, and the symptoms can spread outward. “The potential is there for problem areas to grow in size,” Jones said. Acidification can be hard to detect, since it can begin in a small area or be isolated to particular soil depths — meaning that

acidic soil can be hidden in standard soil test results. Jones said that soils tend to become more acidic fairly quickly, even with the recommended levels of fertilizer use. “This means it’s not a question of if, but when, this problem will affect a specific, annually cropped and fertilized field,” he said. Jones’ and Engel’s research stemmed from an investigation into a troubled field in Chouteau County three years ago and bloomed into a cooperative study involving MSU faculty members, Montana nonprofits, agency personnel and producers. The study, funded by the Montana Fertilizer Advisory Committee and a U.S. Department of Agriculture Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant, aims to develop prevention, mitigation and adaptation options for Montana croplands with soil acidity challenges. Jones said he expects the number of acres affected by soil acidity will continue to increase. “Though at least we will soon be able to recommend liming rates and acid-tolerant cultivars based on MSU research,” he said. The best advice for producers and their advisers is to test soil pH in the upper three inches in areas that have unexplained growth problems. “Only after learning whether a field has a low pH problem, and where that problem exists, can appropriate management decisions be made,” Jones said. Liming, cultivar and crop selection, and fertilizer management are all strategies that can be used to mitigate, adapt to or prevent this problem, Jones said.

Your grass is drying out... Keep adding pounds this fall with BGF-30

WeatherAll® is a protective coating applied to the BioBarrel® as a final step in the manufacturing process. It is composed of an edible, food-grade, wax coating that helps protect and slow down BioBarrel® degradation when encountering wet conditions. The protective coating also helps reduce the attraction that some cattle have to the BioBarrel® container once it is softened under extreme wet conditions, thus reducing the incidence of cattle consuming the container faster than the CRYSTALYX® product. WeatherAll® Protective Technology broadens the application and effectiveness of the BioBarrel® container to all geographies within North America.

Protein is often the first limiting nutrient on most forage programs, minerals and vitamins play an important role in helping cows stay healthy and in maintaining reproductive efficiency. CRYSTAL-PHOS™ is a weather and waste proof mineral supplement that cows will consume readily along with BGF-30™. Place a BGF-30™ barrel with every 20-30 head of cows and a CRYSTALPHOS® barrel for approximately every 40-70 head. Studies have shown that cows will consume mineral better from CRYSTAL-PHOS. Try the “combo” program ~ it works!

jornson Plant Sciences Endowed Chair in the Department of Plant Sciences and Plant Pathology, has been named to the board of directors of the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium, an international nonprofit dedicated to creating a high-quality wheat genome sequence of bread wheat for crop breeding and global food security With 2,100 members in 64 countries, the international, collaborative consortium was established in 2005 by a group of wheat growers, plant scientists, and public and private breeders. Its goal is to make a high-quality wheat genome sequence in order to lay a foundation for basic research that will enable crop breeders to develop improved varieties. “Sequencing and characterizing the wheat genome is a key tool to improving breeding programs across the world,” Budak said. “I’m honored to join the board not only as a scientist using genetics to help increase grain yield, but also as a researcher wanting to improve micronutrient contents for Montana grain growers.” Budak has been a member of the consortium’s coordinating committee since its start and has participated in several projects. He joins a board of eight directors in a three-year term appointment At MSU, Budak researches biotic and abiotic stress responses in cereals and the components of stress tolerance mechanisms in MSU’s College of Agriculture. This year, the Montana Wheat and Barley Committee , the Montana Grain Growers Association and the Montana Grains Foundation jointly funded a project on sequencing the genome of Yellowstone, one of Montana’s most popular winter wheat varieties. Lola Raska, MGGA executive vice president, said Budak’s board appointment is evidence of his internaCONTINUED ON PAGE C33

tional view of global grain production that he applies to Montana’s agricultural commodities and community. “Dr. Budak’s international collaborations on the science that provides high quality food for the world has direct implications for Montana’s cereal producers,” Raska said. “Our growers know that it takes an investment at the genomic level in order to develop Montana cultivars that address agronomic challenges and meet consumer demands.” Collin Watters, MWBC bureau chief, said grain research at MSU is working collaboratively with the state’s producers while engaging international expertise. “The Montana Wheat and Barley Committee is very excited about the future of grain research at MSU,” he said. “Dr. Budak’s engagement with the consortium will help leverage the knowledge and tools he and his team in Bozeman already have in order to better address farmers’ needs throughout the state.” In 2017, Budak and a global team of researchers successfully decoded the complete genome sequence of wild emmer wheat, the original form of nearly all the domesticated wheat in the world, including durum (pasta) and bread wheat.

Bathing horses once or twice a month with shampoo is probably best. Too much shampoo can deplete the horse’s natural oils, making the coat dull and unprotected. As often as need, rinse a sweaty horse with water to remove the salty sweat that can make a horse itchy and sun-bleached. Horses must be trained to accept a hose and water. They are naturally fearful of spraying water. Manes and tails can be washed with shampoo and conditioner more often, and the tail can be tied up (often put in a tail bag) to keep it clean and unbroken. Just like haircare products for people, there are numerous hair products on the market for horses.

Bad fire blight year for apples CONTINUED FROM PAGE C34

Disinfect wound with a paste of Bordeaux mixture. Sprays Spray antibiotics such as Streptomycin or terramycin prevent bloom infection only. It doesn’t stop preexisting fire blight. Spray when first bloom opens and repeat every 3 days until petal fall. Copper sulfate with lime or Bordeaux also helps prevent fire blight, but must be used during dormancy as these damage leaves and fruit. Must not apply these within 50 days of apple harvest or 30 days of pear harvest. Use streptomycin limitedly to avoid bacterial resistance. This has been one of the really bad years for fire blight, but by following the above recommendations, you will have the best chance of preserving your apple and pear trees and preventing further damage. The MSU Extension Service has a bulletin regarding fire blight available online called “Important Apple Diseases of Montana.” If you have any questions or need clarification for this article, please contact Amy Grandpre, Yellowstone County Urban Horticulture Assistant, 301 North 27th, 3rd Floor, P.O.

A crop model allows them to Ask about test combinations of these Choose from Trimble Steering Systems Interest factors on growth and yield. “These models allow us to make a prediction of crop growth and yield,” he says. “In finding ways to combat heat waves, modeling provides a tool to see the effects of climate and weather changes on wheat production. It helps us predict how wheat will react so we can try to stop any negative effects beforehand.” Nuttall says the next step in their research is to test their models using fields of wheat rather than a smaller sample of plants. They ultimately want to include their work in larger crop models to improve them. “As a scientist, there is satisfaction in finding relationships between crop growth and stresses like heat waves,” he says. “I also think the work is valuable because we can help crop models identify posGFX-750 CFX-750 TMX 2050 sible ways that allow us to keep producing the food our planet needs.” Read more about this work in Agronomy Journal (https://dl.sciencesocieties. org/publications/aj/abChoose from Trimble Displays stracts/110/4/1296).
