The workshops are offered to help landowners and renters identify and manage the risk associated with rental agreements. Dwight Aakre and Andy Swenson, Extension farm management specialists, and Willie Huot, Grand Forks County Extension agent, will be the main presenters. One of the topics is a historical perspective on farmland values and rents. Concepts and practical examples of how to determine equitable rents also will be presented. The main session will help participants better understand different rental arrangements, such as cash rent, share rent and flexible cash rent. There will be a session on how producers can improve their land rental negotiations by enhancing the communication process with landowners. This includes the use of resumes, portfolios and frequent communications to keep landowners informed and educated about their operation and vision for a particular tract of land.

The twenty spring wheat entries average 21.1 bushels per acre at the Moccasin location with Oneal producing the high yield at 24.5 bu/a followed by experimental line MT 1053 at 23.2 bu/a (Table 1). Spring wheat test weights were below average with a nursery mean of 55.0 pounds per bushel. Volt had the high test weight at 56.7 lbs/bu. Three entries had test weights below 54.0 lbs/bu. Moccasin spring wheat protein contents were much above average, at 18.1%, as one would expect with the low test weights. North Dakota cultivar `Mott’ had the protein content at 19.3 %. Develop line MT 1008 was the high yielding entry at the Denton location at 28.4 bu/a followed by Vida and MT 1053 ( Table 2). Denton spring wheat test weights 1.24 lbs/bu above the Moccasin location at 56.24 lbs/bu. averaged just one pound per bushel above the Moccasin test weights. Kuntz and MT continued on page A6


17th annual Diversity, Direction, and Dollars forum

By NDSU Extension Service Diversity, Direction and Dollars 2013, an agricultural forum, will be held on Tuesday, January 15, at the Ramada Inn Grand Dakota Lodge in Dickinson, North Dakota. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., followed at 9 with a welcome from Haylie Shipp with the Northern Ag Network. “This program will feature internationally known speakers on topics affecting agriculture in the western Dakotas and eastern Montana,” says Kurt Froelich, North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension Service agent in Stark and Billings counties. “It will give producers ideas for improving productivity and decreasing costs while providing highquality food produced in a sustainable manner.” The keynote speaker is Michael Swanson who is an agricultural economist and consultant for Wells Fargo. He will discuss the risks and rewards of ultra-low interest rates. In an era of ultra-low interest rates, what should agricultural producers be doing to secure their economic success? How stable are interest rates? “Agricultural producers also are financial managers, so they need to consider alternative investments to land,” Froelich says. Phil Westra, Colorado State University weed science professor, will discuss herbicide resistant weeds and future chemical rotations. Wheat development and nitrogen management will be discussed by Joel Ransom, NDSU Extension agronomist. With the cost of nitrogen skyrocketing, farm managers want to be sure they get a return on their nitrogen investment. Leon Osborne, University of North Dakota (UND) professor and UND Regional Weather Information Center director, will discuss weather forecasts. Osborne has more than 35 years of atmospheric science experience in academia, research and industry. Weather may play a critical role in determining producer success or failure because soil moisture is much less than last year. Jan Knodel, NDSU Extension Service entomologist, will discuss how to effectively use insecticides. Insects can become serious pests in certain situations and can have a huge economic impact on producers. Knodel will provide ideas on how producers can get the most benefit from insect control strategies. “Producers should come away with at least two good ideas that they can apply to their farms during the next cropping season and at least one good idea to position their farming operation to take advantage of the changes occurring,” Froelich says. A registration fee of $15 covers all breaks, the noon lunch and materials and is payable at the door.

Master Conservationist program seeks nominations

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR Recognizing long-term water conservation, innovation and implementation, the 2013 Master Conservationist recognition program is seeking nominations. 
 A winner will be selected from each of the three established categories: agriculture, community and youth. Production agriculture includes individual producers, partnerships and family farm or ranch corporations. The community category is for groups, individual agencies or businesses that have carried out a water and/or soil conservation program for a minimum of two years. The youth category seeks to recognize any individual or group of individuals 19 years old or younger for their conservation efforts. Master Conservationist brochures, which include details on the program, are available at local Natural Resources District and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service offices. Applications can also be found online by visiting www.owh.com and clicking on “In the Community” link. Entries are due February 1, 2013. All entries are judged by members of the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). Master Conservationists will be recognized at the annual banquet of the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts, September 23, 2013, at the Younes Conference Centre in Kearney. They will also be featured in the Omaha World Herald in September. The Master Conservationist program is sponsored by the Omaha World-Herald and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at UNL.

Tulip bulbs

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: The other day, my daughter gave me a bag of tulips bulbs that her company pulled out to throw away. I have the bulbs in boxes in my garage to dry out. I hope the leaves will turn yellow so I can cut them down and store the bulbs until fall. Is this the correct thing to be doing? A: You and your daughter must live in the south. You are half correct when you say you want the foliage to turn yellow. However, it must be done in sunshine while they are still green to make food for storage and growth next year. If you can, pop them into the ground somewhere to allow them to yellow naturally. After that, dig them out to set them where you want. If you don’t have freezing weather where you live, you will have to refrigerate them during whatever you call winter in your area to prime them to bloom next spring.

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: Can Roundup have a carryover in the garden, especially for peas, strawberries and raspberries? If so, for how long? A: Unless they have changed the formulation of Roundup to be soil active, it should not have any carryover whatsoever. That has been my experience in using it. If you wait a growing season before replanting, you should be absolutely safe with the market formulation of this product.

Drought lingers, but producers can plan ahead

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR Drought is hard to prepare for and even producers by surprise, and they have had harder to predict. Last summer caught some to contend with high feed costs and limited availability. N e x t y e a r, t h o u g h , shouldn’t catch anyone by surprise. It will be nearly impossible to fully recharge moisture into the soil profile by next spring. Unless fields receive lots of extra, good soaking moisture next spring, dryland yields are likely to be below average. And since there will be very little hay carryover, prices are likely to stay high, said Bruce Anderson, University of NebraskaLincoln Extension forage specialist. “Most pastures were grazed more heavily last year than usual,” Anderson said. “They have almost no forage remaining for use next year and most root systems were weakened going into winter.” Carrying capacity for pastures next year probably will be less than average unless they receive above average precipitation. Even with extra rain, though, spring growth could be slower or later than usual, Anderson warned. These effects leave producers with several choices. Anderson said they could plant annual forages or rent cornstalks for winter grazing, adding that producers should consider how they might take advantage of any rain they do receive. “I suggest you take a realistic look at your livestock forage program,” he said. “If it stays dry, can you afford to keep doing what you have been doing?”

Quality for the future, demands performance today.

Vida is used as the standard for comparing multi-year cultivar yield, test weight and protein content performance presented in Tables 4 through 12. Vida has high multi-year mean yields at both Denton and Geraldine. Vida had much below average yield at Moccasin in 2008 which pulls its multi-year mean yield below the mean yields of Outlook, Oneal and Fortuna. Vida’s test weight is typically slightly below the nursery average. Volt was consistently at the top for high test weight. The ranking for multi-year mean protein content varied across locations. Mott was frequently at or near the top for protein content. Vida is often toward the bottom for protein content which is typical for the higher yielding cultivars. This research was conducted in cooperation with the MSU-MAES spring wheat breeder Dr. Luther Talbert and assistant breeder, Susan Lanning. Funding was provided by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station and the Montana Wheat and Barley Committee. CARC Research Assoc. Benri Deanon, Res. Spec. Joe Vavrovsky and Field Tech. Sally Dahlhausen assisted in data collection. CONTINUED ON PAGE A14

Consider windbreaks to shelter livestock

By K-State Research and Extension Established tree windbreaks sheltering beef and dairy cattle operations can save producers money on feed costs, weight loss and milk production during the winter months. A heavy winter coat protects beef cattle until temperatures drop below 18 degrees Fahrenheit, but beyond that point, Bob Atchison with the Kansas Forest Service said the animals require additional feed to maintain body temperatures. The presence of a windbreak can help remedy this problem. “A 25 mph wind at zero degrees Fahrenheit creates a windchill of 44 degrees below zero,” said Atchison. “By contrast, a properly designed windbreak will reduce the same windchill to 15 degrees below zero.” Atchison said windbreaks can reduce the spike in energy requirements cattle need to maintain their body temperature during extreme cold weather. He cited Canadian researchers who found that cattle on winter range, in unprotected sites, required a 50 percent increase in feed for normal activities. “A properly designed windbreak will reduce these needs by half,” he said. Windbreaks enable cattle to gain and maintain weight better as well. He also cited studies in Montana indicating that during mild winters, beef cattle sheltered by windbreaks gained an average of 34 to 35 pounds more than cattle in an open feedlot. During severe winters, cattle in feedlots protected from the wind maintained 10.6 more pounds than cattle in unprotected lots. The Kansas Forest Service is now accepting tree orders from producers interested in establishing livestock windbreaks. Foresters also are available to assist with planning a tree planting. For more information, contact the Kansas Forest Service at 785-532-3300 or visit the Kansas Forest Service (http://www.kansasforests.org).

What’s in the bag?

By Dr. Jeff Lehmkuhler, Extension Beef Specialist, University of Kentucky The fall has dropped upon the Commonwealth like a lead balloon dropped from a 10-story building. Seems like this time of year we always see these drastic weather condition swings and it takes time to adjust the colder temperatures. This is also a time that we see recently weaned calves break with respiratory disease as the daytime high and low’s can be 30-degree swings. This time of the year also is when many cattlemen begin buying feed to supplement weaned calves, replacement heifers, and cows. Which feed should I buy and how much should I feed often become the topics of discussion this time of year. In our area, we have companies that sell their regular beef feed product lines as well as common coproduct feeds such as soybean hulls and corn gluten feed. There have been a few companies that have made a business of handling only coproduct feedstuffs and marketing them as blended feeds. With the high grain prices, producers usually search for less expensive supplement alternatives. As beef producers, we can sometimes be our own worst enemy. As an example, you have had success with a feed that you purchase from your feed salesman but it is getting expensive. So, you ask the feed salesman for a feed that is $25 less per ton because you just can’t see coughing up that kind of money for feed. Well, the feed salesman says he does have a feed that is a 14% complete feed in your price range and you jump on it. What made that feed $25 less than the other? Perhaps this is a larger dealer that can take advantage of bulk purchasing of feedstuffs and procures commodities at a greatly reduced price. This is certainly a possibility and can’t be discarded. The next step in determining to why this feed is less costly may or may not be told by the feed tag. Perhaps the feed is medicated and contains a feed additive such as an ionophore or antibiotic. This would be clearly stated at the top of the feed tag. If both feeds are similar in that they both contain the feed additive at the same level, the next thing to consider is what is actually in the feed. This includes both the guaranteed nutrient analysis and also the ingredients listed. First, compare the nutrients listed and see if they differ in protein form. Urea is the cheapest source of crude protein and 10-15% of non-protein nitrogen is common in feeds for growing cattle. Next compare the level of crude protein, fat and fiber. Higher crude protein feeds often have a higher price tag. Assuming the two feeds are similar in nutrient content, the next step is the ingredient list. Feed tags list the ingredients in order from greatest inclusion levels to the least. Feeds with soybean meal, oats, corn or other grains will likely be priced higher as these commodities are often more expensive. But what if one of the tags reads as follows: Processed Grain Byproducts, Roughage Products, Grain Products and then a listing of various minerals. Can you tell if this feed contains soybean hulls, corn gluten feed, or dried distillers grains? No, the use of collective terms prevents one from knowing what feedstuffs may be in a product. This is important to understand as it applies to our two feeds that we are comparing. Soybean hulls has a book value of 77% TDN and 12% crude protein while rice hulls is listed at 13% TDN and 3% crude protein (2012 BEEF magazine Feed Composition Tables). Recall that TDN stands for Total Digestible Nutrients and is an estimate of the available energy from a feedstuff. Both of these feedstuffs fall under the collective term of roughage product. Clearly, a large difference in feeding quality exists between these two feedstuffs. The wholesale price at the processing plant in Arkansas for rice hulls was $30/ton while soybean hulls were $200-$225/ton as reported by the University of Missouri for October 28, 2012. This could very well be a method for lowering the price of a coproduct-blended feed. There is no listing on a feed tag of the energy, TDN or NEg. Therefore, it can be difficult to fully compare two feeds. When you are looking at buying feeds and you come across a deal too good to be true, it probably is. Ask the feed salesman what is in the feed. They likely won’t tell you the percentages of the various ingredients, but they should at least be willing to tell you if a product has a certain feedstuff such as peanut hulls, distillers grains, etc… Be better informed when making these decisions today and be sure to get the best value which does not necessarily mean the lowest price. Have a nice fall and happy feed shopping.

By University of Idaho Extension John Hammel will close out his time as the dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences this month after nine years in the position to pursue full-time teaching and research opportunities. “I have greatly appreciated the time that I have served as dean – in spite of some challenging times, we have seen advances with our partners around the state. I look forward to returning to my teaching and research roots within the department of plant, soil and entomological sciences. Specifically as a soil scientist, I am excited about resuming efforts in the area of crop and tillage systems.” Hammel joined the University of Idaho in November 1982 as a professor of soil physics after serving on the faculty at the University of Georgia in Athens. In April 1998, he had served as associate dean and director of academic programs and was appointed dean in January 2004. “I’m grateful for John’s commitment to the state of Idaho,” said M. Duane Nellis, University of Idaho president. “As a 21st century land-grant university, John’s support of education, research and extension efforts have reached thousands of Idahoans each year and contributed in important ways to our state’s agricultural economy.” Rick Waitley, executive director of Food Producers of Idaho, said, “John Hammel stepped up to provide excellent leadership to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences during a difficult time. He was an effective advocate for the University of Idaho and for Idaho agriculture. He successfully found ways to create and build partnerships that benefitted both…John is happiest whenever he has a chance to interact with and help students as a faculty adviser and researcher. I want to thank John for his service and look forward to working with him as a productive member of the faculty and continuing leader in Idaho’s agricultural community.” An internal search will begin immediately for an interim dean while a national search for a new dean can be completed this spring. Agriculture now ranks as Idaho’s largest single industry and provides a solid foundation for the state’s economy. The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences continues to conduct research, teach students and extend science-based knowledge to benefit people in Idaho, the United States and the world. As part of the college, the University of Idaho Extension serves the state with offices in 42 counties. The Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station operates research and extension centers and farms across the state. University of Idaho Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program draws together 38,000 youth and 4,000 volunteers annually throughout Idaho’s communities. The University of Idaho’s College of Agriculture was created in 1901 to recognize the importance of agricultural research to Idaho. The college’s name was changed to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences in 2001 as part of its centennial celebration to recognize that its mission and its programs had expanded.

The all-new BPX9000 Bale Processor from Vermeer combines simplicity, durability and versatility to meet the needs of today’s cattle producers. The easy to operate machine is built tough with a unique, T-style frame, the bed design and offset rotor produce even and consistent feed with minimal maintenance, and an optional large square bale kit includes enhancements to effectively process a variety of bales. The BPX9000 is built to maximize bale processing and minimize operator stress. The BPX9000’s slat and chain bed and positive bale feeding improve bale rotation, feeding bales more consistently into the rotor, while reducing the need for operators to reverse rotation of the bale when feeding. The split shaft in the bed allows for easier maintenance without removing the entire bed, and long-lasting bushings in the bed are resistant to net and twine wrapping. In addition, the bale processor’s offset rotor feeds material with less slugging, for a consistent cut length and higher quality feed. With exclusive cut control bars in combination with the self-cleaning rotor, excessive build-up of net and twine on the drum is eliminated. The rotor can also be manually cleaned, with easy access through a side-access door. The BPX9000 has no welds or gussets at high stress points for enhanced durability. The optional large square bale kit gives producers the flexibility to process both round and square bales, with offset loader forks to position square bales to the right side of the processor and a sidewall that lowers to effectively process square bales.

Focus on Character – Community service project

By Karelyn Farrand, 4-H Youth Character Education Field Specialist Because of the work 4-H Leaders and volunteers do with 4-Hers, 4-Hers volunteer 3.3 times more than youth in other organizations. To keep this great statistic going, the South Dakota 4-H CHARACTER COUNTS! Staff invites every South Dakota 4-H club or Independent Member to participate in the 2013 ‘Focus on Character’ Statewide Project. ‘Focus on Character’ is a character, community service project for the 4-H calendar year. Over the past 4 years we have had 42 clubs participate from across the state volunteering 7,208 hours. In economic terms these volunteer hours would equal $109,417. Wow, that is impressive! That being said, we would like to challenge each county to have a participant in this year’s Focus on Character. Let’s see what 66 clubs or Independent Members can do. For more information on this statewide project please refer to the 2013 Focus on Character Information (http://www.sdstate. edu/sdces/4h/CC/focus-oncharacter-pilot-project.cfm) page. It is a great way to teach character education through 4-H Community Service projects.

‘Big Idea Seminars’ continue in January and February

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s (UNL) Agricultural Research Division’s “Big Idea Seminars” will continue with three seminars in January and February. “Advances in Plant Recognition and Identification Technology,” organized by Steve Young, assistant professor at UNL’s West Central Research and Extension Center at North Platte, will discuss how plant identification is advancing from keys to computer systems and even apps for use in managed and natural systems. “The technology boom is revolutionizing management aspects of both crop and non-crop systems, including the use of advanced technology for targeted plant recognition and applications systems,” Young said. “Growers will soon have a plant identification monitor sitting next to their yield, soil moisture and nutrient monitors in their tractor cab, while outdoor enthusiasts, conservationists and resource managers will have the ability to identify invasive and other important plant species using identification technology that is also equipped with communication and environmental monitoring devices.” With the world population predicted to be 9 billion by 2050, this technology is needed to meet future demands for food, feed and fiber, Young said. Similarly, the increasing threat from invasive species in natural areas and the lack of trained individuals who can properly identify plans are signaling the need for this recognition technology. The ARD’s seminar series hopes to build big ideas and collaborations among faculty members not only at UNL, but across all University of Nebraska campuses. Dates, speakers, times, locations and topics include: • January 17, Simon Blackmore, 2 p.m. informal discussion, 3 p.m. reception, 3:30-4:30 p.m. seminar, Nebraska East Union, “New Concepts in Agricultural Automation.” • January 22, David Jacobs, 2 p.m. informal discussion, 110 Avery Hall; 3 p.m. reception, 348 Avery Hall; 3:30-4:30 p.m. seminar, 115 Avery Hall, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, UNL City Campus, “Using Computer Vision for Species Identification.” • February 1, Lie Tang, 2 p.m. informal discussion, 3 p.m. reception, 3:30-4:30 seminar, Nebraska East Union, UNL East Campus, “Plant Recognition for Robotic Weeding: Challenges and Opportunities.” Blackmore, professor at Harper Adams University College in England, is a key figure in the development of precision farming and agricultural robotics with a worldwide reputation. He worked for 12 years in Africa and Europe before starting his academic career and now collaborates with many universities around the world to help develop precision farming and agricultural robotics. His presentation will discuss how smarter machines will save time and money. Jacobs is a professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland with a joint appointment in the university’s Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. Jacobs’ research has focused on human and computer vision, especially in the areas of object recognition and perceptual organization. He will describe the first mobile app for identifying plant species using automatic visual recognition. The system called LeafSnap identifies tree species from photographs of their leaves. In addition, he will discuss some recent work on animal species identification. Tang is an associate professor in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering at Iowa State University. His research program focuses on the development of robotic and intelligent systems for agricultural applications such as robotic weeding. He will present his research findings in crop and weed recognition, and share his vision about how the technological advancements in sensing and computation may enable us to invent new weeding tools that can maximize weed control efficacy while minimizing their environmental footprint. For more information visit the ARD’s Big Idea Seminars (http://bigideaseminars.unl.edu) website. The seminar series is in the university’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.


Powell, Big Horn Basin program empowers women

By University of Wyoming Extension Empowering farm and ranch women to manage information systems used in critical decision-making processes and build local networks throughout Wyoming is the goal of a University of Wyoming (UW) Extension program in Powell. The program is based on Annie’s Project, a program for women in agriculture with a passion for business and being involved in their family operations. The Annie’s Project program was developed by Iowa State University Extension and is offered around Wyoming. “Annie was raised in a small farming community,” said Sandra Frost, extension educator. “She was dedicated to being an involved business partner and running the farm with her husband. Though they struggled, they accomplished much.” This women’s empowerment program is offered in six sessions from noon-4 p.m. Saturdays, January 26, February 16 and 23, and March 2, 9 and 16. Sessions are in the classroom on the West Campus of Northwest College. Cost of the program is $30 per person, and class size is limited. Participants should contact Frost at the Park County extension office by Friday, January 18, to enroll. “Annie’s life experiences can encourage farm women who are living and working in a complex, dynamic and evolving business environment,” said Frost. “Farm and ranch women with a passion for business and involvement should enroll in this program.” Farm and ranch women will receive training for managing information in financial records, production records, marketing plans and risk management, legal/regulation records and documentation and human resources and time management. To enroll and for more information, contact Frost at 307754-8836 or email her at sfrost1@uwyo.edu.

NDSU offers updated Crop Compare program for 2013

Trader’s Dispatch, January 2013 — Page A29

By NDSU Extension Service The North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension Service has updated the Crop Compare program, which is a spreadsheet designed to compare cropping alternatives. The program uses the direct costs and yields from the 2013 projected crop budgets for nine regions of North Dakota, but producers are encouraged to enter the expected yields and input costs for their farm. The user designates a reference crop and enters its expected market price. Depending on the region, a broad selection of nine to 18 crops are compared. The program provides the prices for competing crops that would be necessary to provide the same return over variable costs as the reference crop. “Producers can compare these ‘break-even’ prices to expected market prices to see which crop is most likely to compete with the reference crop,” says Andy Swenson, NDSU Extension Service farm management specialist. “Input costs and grain prices can move quickly. The program provides a tool for producers to check the changing scenarios until final planting decisions are made this spring.” It should be noted that an underlying assumption is that fixed costs, such as machinery ownership, land, and the owner’s labor and management, do not vary among crop choices and therefore do not need to be included in the analysis. “In practice, there may be differences in fixed costs that should be considered,” Swenson says. “For example, there may be additional labor, management and risk associated with a competing crop. If all the labor and management is provided by the owner-operator, it would be considered a fixed cost and could be excluded. However, the producer should add some cost if he or she would only want to produce the crop when an adequate reward would be received for the extra time and management required relative to the reference crop.” A similar rationale could be used if a competing crop is considered higher risk. The Crop Compare program is available on the Web at http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/farmmanagement/tools.

Large dieffenbachia plant

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I was Googling about my dieffenbachia plant and came across your website. I see that you have answered questions for others, so I hope you can answer mine. We have a dieffenbachia plant that was given to us by a neighbor because it was getting too large for their house. They gave it to us two years ago. The plant is almost 12 feet tall now. We repotted it at the beginning of the summer. However, it is so large that we had to stake it in the pot. It actually fell over in the middle of the night once because it was not sitting in the pot properly. We since have corrected that problem. How do I stop it from getting any bigger? Can I cut the top part of the plant off? Thanks so much for your help with this because it has been bothering me. A: You certainly can cut this plant back. In fact, you can cut the cane up into 4 to 6 inch pieces. Lay the pieces sideways in moist, unmilled sphagnum moss. In six to eight weeks, foliar growth will begin emerging from the top of the cut and roots from the base. From one mother plant, several offspring are possible. If you don’t want to bother with asexual propagation, you can cut the plant back to the height you want and throw the cut piece away.

The spring barley grain yields on no-till continuous crop at Moccasin, Denton and Geraldine are indicative of the precipitation levels of each location. Moccasin had low precipitation levels and low yields, Denton had intermediate precipitation levels with intermediate yields and Geraldine had good precipitation and good yield levels. Feed barley Haxby, a dryland barley yield standard for much of Montana, was the top grain producer at all three locations (see Tables 1, 2, 3). Champion, a feed barley, was next to the top at Denton and Geraldine. Conrad and development line MT010160 (MT970148/ Harrington) yielded well at all three locations. In the multi-year yield summary for Moccasin and Denton, Tables 4 & 5, Haxby has high mean yield. The 2012 barley trial at Geraldine was the first in the past decade. Test weights were heavier than average at Moccasin and Geraldine locations while near average at Denton. Haxby consistently has a high test weight. However, development line MT010158 took the high test weight at the Denton. The multi-year test weight summary, Tables 5 & 6, show in recent years show test weights to be heavier than average. Less than optimum growing conditions during early growth can limit yield potential early on, reduced tiller numbers, which in turns provides more nutrients for the reproductive tillers at the end. Protein and sieve size are determined from a single sample per location for each variety. The grain protein levels were in an inverse trend compared to the yield levels. Moccasin with lowest grain yields had the highest grain protein with a location mean continued on page A36


Grazing Seminar January 16-17

Trader’s Dispatch, January 2013 — Page A33

Climate impacts on commodities, feed alternatives for livestock enduring drought and the impacts of oil and gas development are a few of the topics to be discussed during the 2013 Montana Winter Grazing Seminar, to be held January 16–17, 2013, at the Kiwanis Youth Center in Harlowton, Montana “The Winter Grazing Seminar is a great opportunity to find out what’s new in range management and compare notes with other producers around the state,” said Heidi Crum, State Coordinator of the Rangeland Resources Program with the Montana Dept. of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC). “We’ve got some great speakers dealing with issues all ranchers care about.” Speakers on the first day of the seminar include Dr. Simon Atkins with the Advanced Forecasting Corporation; Dr. Rachel Endecott, Beef Cattle Extension Specialist with Montana State University; and a panel of producers discussing oil development and local impacts. The first day will conclude with a social hour and banquet at the Moose Lodge, with music from the Musselshell Mudcats. Bill Donald will serve as master of ceremonies for the banquet. Sarah Calhoun, owner of the Red Ants Pants womens clothing company of White Sulphur Springs, is the featured speaker. Leaders of the Montana Association of Conservation Districts will also present their Range Leader of The Year awards in the ranching and professional categories. Speakers on day two of the seminar include four scientists with the USDA Agriculture Research Station, Forage and Range Research Laboratory in Logan, Utah; and Dr. George Haynes, Professor of Agriculture Economics at Montana State University, with an ag outlook for Montana. For registration and other information, contact Cheryl Miller with the Upper Musselshell Conservation District or Heidi Crum with the Montana DNRC. The 2013 Winter Grazing Seminar is hosted by the Upper Musselshell Conservation District in cooperation with the Governor’s Rangeland Resources Executive Committee and Montana DNRC.

MAG-60 Update

By Dr. Les Anderson, Beef Extension Specialist, University of Kentucky To enhance the value of our feeder calves, UK, KBN, and the Agricultural Development Board has launched the MAG (Management And Genetics) - 60 (60-day postweaning) program. In this program, KBN partnered with beef producers to synchronize estrus in their beef females for timed insemination. Producers inseminated their females to a small, select group of sires that were proven in their ability to sire productive, profitable calves. The ultimate goal was to increase the market value of this set of feeder calves by enhancing their genetic ability to excel in the feedlot and on the rail. The first sets of calves from the MAG-60 program are hitting the ground in December. Last fall, 2,674 females were bred to one of 20 sires. Last spring, over 4,972 females were bred in the MAG-60 program. Steers sired by AI will be managed according to CPH health requirements and will be backgrounded for a minimum of 60 days postweaning. The calves will be age and source verified, thus, we will be marketing feeder steers that are age, source, and genetically verified for superior performance. Feeders produced in this program will be co-mingled by our marketing agents and marketed either in CPH-like feeder calf sales, video sales, or directly to feedlots. Our current plans are to video and weigh the calves on each farm by the end of April 2013. A MAG-60 video auction will then be conducted in May or June of 2013. Calves will then be delivered to collection points for transportation to the feedyard. Although some producers will likely chose to retain ownership, we feel that most of the MAG-60 calves will be sold in the video auction. This fall marks the final breeding season for MAG-60. We are currently looking for producer’s interested in participating in MAG-60. Bulls that will be used for AI this fall include: from Select Sires, GAR Predestined (AN), Counterpart (AN), Free Lunch (CH), Durango (HE), and Rookie (SM); from ABS, New Standard (AN), Foresight (AN), Gridmaker (CH), Ribeye, (HE), and Combination (SM); from Accelerated Genetics, Fast Track (AN), Total Impact (AN), Platinum (CH), On Target (HE), and Manifest (SM); and from Genetic Horizons Right Answer (AN), Tokach Update (AN), Bluegrass (CH), Revolution (HE), Dew Time (SM). For more information regarding the MAG-60 program, contact Mr. Land Dale or Mrs. Becky Thompson at KCA (859-278-0899) or Dr. Les Anderson at 859-257-2856.

NDSU funds to analyze sugar beets for biofuel

By NDSU Extension Service The North Dakota State University (NDSU) Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics is part of a grant to develop enhanced energy sugar beets that are optimized for biofuel production. The grant is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA-e). Other partners in the $1.8 million, three-year program are Plant Sensory Systems LLC in Baltimore, Md., and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Plant Sensory LLC and the USDA will engineer beets to use fertilizer and water more efficiently and produce higher levels of fermentable sugars, compared with current feedstocks. The energy beets will have lower production costs and increased yield for biofuels without competing against food-grade sugar. “The NDSU Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics will lead the project’s economic and environmental analyses,” says David Ripplinger, bioproducts and bioenergy economist and assistant professor in the department. “The award recognizes NDSUs expertise in economic and life-cycle analyses and provides support to build on this expertise during the three- year project.” The grant recognizes the promise of energy beets as an industrial feedstock and a proprietary yield-enhancing technology to improve the competitiveness of energy beets as a feedstock. “This is good news for the development of the industrial sugar industry in North America, especially in the northern Plains, where there are advantages to growing energy beets, so there are ongoing efforts to introduce energy beets as an industrial crop, as well as the construction and operation of processing facilities and biorefineries,” Ripplinger says. “ARPA-e funding is extremely competitive, so the projects it selects become very high profile.”

Wow, 2012 went quickly! 2012 was the driest summer we can remember, and we know that is typical of a large part of the country. Due to dry weather we chose to wean the calves three weeks early, although short and dry, the grass did seem to have a lot of strength, and the calves weighed off with good weights with the mother cows still having great body scores. The 2012 calving season again brought us a high percentage of bull calves, so we will have more bulls to offer, but the quality will be as good as ever A very even set of bulls, from top to bottom are gaining nicely, and should hit targeted gains without becoming fat. All sale animals are coming from one of the few certified Brucellosis free Red Angus herds in Montana. Sale cattle are BVD-PI Free.

Cedar apple rust

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: What fungicide should I use on young apple and pear trees to save them from cedar apple rust? We noticed that the juniper trees also are showing signs of the problem. A: Pick off all the fruiting bodies that you can locate on the junipers and destroy them. Next, go to a local garden center or garden supply store and look for a fungicide such as Heritage, Mancozeb, Immunox, Banner or Bayleton. The fungicide should be used on the apple trees, not the junipers.

SAF’s Circle of Succe$$ Scholarships

Montana students! Are you looking for ways to pay for college in the fall? Nonprofit Student Assistance Foundation (SAF) can help.  Applications for SAF’s $1,000 Circle of Succe$$ scholarships will be available at SmartAboutCollege.org beginning on January 1. Click on the “Apply Now!” button under the photos of the Circle of Succe$$ Class of 2012 to link to an application form. The application deadline is Friday, March 1. “Student Assistance Foundation feels privileged to have helped the members of the ‘Circle of Succe$$ Class of 2012’ and we are looking forward to meeting the members of the class of 2013,” said Darbie Hess, grants manager for SAF. In order to qualify for a Circle of Succe$$ scholarship, applicants must be Montana residents who graduated from a Montana high school, and attending a Montana college or university at least half time. They must be in their second, third or fourth year of postsecondary education and maintaining at least a 2.5 grade point average (GPA). A committee of SAF employees evaluates the applications to determine who receives the grants. SAF has been providing Circle of Succe$$ scholarships to students at Montana colleges since 2003 — $404,000 in all. The program is near and dear to the hearts of SAF employees because it was originally funded solely through SAF employee donations. Today, SAF uses the proceeds from fundraising efforts including the annual golf scramble and private donations to supplement the effort. In 2013, SAF will award 56 scholarships, one in honor of each Montana county. Those scholarships will be distributed among six scholarship regions throughout the state. For more information about the Circle of Succe$$ Scholarship program, visit SmartAboutCollege.org or contact Darbie Hess at dhess@safmt.org or (406) 495-7393. Student Assistance Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit Montana corporation that provides students with knowledge and tools to pursue and fund their postsecondary education.  Funds generated by SAF are returned to Montanans in the form of education grants and public benefit programs - to date more than $25 million.  For more information, visit www.safmt.org or www.SmartAboutCollege.org.

New variety development and use

By Karen Hertsgaard, Information Specialist Institute of Barley and Malt Sciences Accelerating research to release higher yielding, disease resistant barley varieties was a key message at a crowded pre-Prairie Grains Conference Meeting for Minnesota and North Dakota barley growers and industry partners. The invited speakers included NDSU barley pathologist Dr. Robert Brueggeman, Anheuser-Busch Director of Raw Materials Mr. Ralph Judd, Mr. Paul Kramer from Rahr Malting Company, Mr. Derek Prell from Malteurop North America and University of Minnesota barley breeder Dr. Kevin Smith. For researchers, higher yielding and disease resistant varieties are top priority. Kevin Smith’s research program at the University of Minnesota has resulted in the release of the Fusarium head blight resistant variety Quest. Seed availability problems have been solved and industry is gearing up to fit Quest into brewing blends. Smith also runs a winter barley variety research program which could result in high yielding winter barley varieties for Minnesota and North Dakota. Smith has been working on the winter barley project for 4 years and is starting to see a few varieties that show promise in northern U.S. climates. Bob Brueggeman talked about fast-tracking disease resistant barley varieties. His research has benefitted from a huge jump in genomic sequencing efficiencies. New equipment in his lab has cut the time needed to sequence pathogen genomes from 2 years to 3 days, enabling him to screen huge numbers of pathogens and barley varieties for possible resistance. Moving new varieties into brewing blends at a faster pace is a top priority at Anheuser-Busch, according to Ralph Judd. However, he cautioned that malting quality is still a priority and new varieties must have quality at least equal to those currently used. Paul Kramer of Rahr is optimistic that malting and brewing industry demand for barley will slowly but steadily increase in the next 10 years. He says there is a “pot of gold at the end of the beer store” and is optimistic about the growth of the craft brewing industry. According to Kramer, craft brewing makes up 6 to 7 percent of the beer market and 10 to 11 percent of the malt market. He said that industry needs to make sure there are varieties available that craft brewers want. Derek Prell gave a global barley and malt market snapshot and believes that North American barley supply and demand is mature and stable. The meeting was organized by the Minnesota Barley Growers Association and the North Dakota Barley Council.

Pulse Crop Production Workshop

The 2013 North Central Montana Pulse Crop Production Workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 13th at the Pondera Shooting Sports Club located at 972 Granite, 1 mile west of Conrad, Montana.

It will be a great opportunity to meet and visit with other growers, leading Montana pulse researchers, and buyers active in the region. Registration begins at 9 am and workshop topics include crop production practices, herbicide applications and carryover issues, pulse crop research and varieties, production economics, insurance updates. Additionally, the workshop agenda includes a local grower panel and an introduction to pulse buyers and processors. Speakers include Dr. Perry Miller, MSU, Professor of Cropping systems; Dr. Chengci Chen, Researcher at Central Ag. Research Center, Moccasin; Dr. Mary Burrows, MSU Extension Pathologist; Ed Davis, MSU Research Agronomist; Peggy Lamb, Northern Ag. Research Center at Havre; Steve Junghans, RMA, Billings; Chad Lee, Montana Department of Ag, Helena; and other Montana research and industry representatives. Lunch will be provided, so anyone planning on attending will need to RSVP to the MSU Pondera County Extension Office at 271-4054 or pondera@montana.edu by Friday February 9th. Major workshop sponsors to-date include the Northern Pulse Growers Association, Montana Department of Agriculture, Columbia Grain and MSU Extension.

“We Work Harder To Stretch Your Dollar Farther”

Ice dams

By Jim Stordahl, Clearwater/Polk County Extension, Minnesota An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation and other areas.  For ice dams to form there must be snow on the roof, and at the same time, higher portions of the outside surface of the roof must be above freezing while lower surfaces remain below freezing. Since most ice dams form at the edge of the roof, there is obviously a heat source warming the roof elsewhere. This heat is primarily coming from the house. In rare instances solar heat gain may cause these temperature differences, or may be a combination of both. In a house, heat moves through the ceiling and insulation by conduction through the slanted portion of the ceiling. In many homes, there is less space for insulation, so it is important to use an insulation with high R-value per inch to reduce heat loss by conduction. If ice dams are a problem, you may want to check your attic insulation levels. Certain insulation products may settle over time and become less effective. In all Minnesota communities it is possible to find homes that do not have ice dams. These homes may have better insulation or it may be due to position of the home, the color of the shingles or the simplicity of the roof lines. But, the biggest factor is heat loss and ice dams can be prevented by controlling it from the home. If ice dams are an annual problem on your home, the short term solution is to remove snow from the roof. This eliminates one of the ingredients necessary for the formation of an ice dam. A “roof rake” and push broom can be used to remove snow, just be careful you don’t damage the roofing materials. The longer term solution is to make the ceiling air tight so warm air cannot flow from the house into the attic space. After sealing air leakage paths between the house and attic space, consider increasing the ceiling/roof insulation to cut down on heat loss by conduction. This may increase the snow load that your roof has to carry because it will no longer melt. If it is built to current codes, there should not be a structural problem. Roofs, like the rest of the home, should have been designed to withstand expected snow loads. In Minnesota, plans showing design details to meet expected snow loads are usually required to receive a building permit. Natural roof ventilation can help maintain uniform roof temperatures, but if the long-term actions described here are done effectively, then only small amounts of roof ventilation are needed to maintain uniform roof surface temperatures. If heat transfer has been reduced substantially, then snow will build up on the roof and cover natural roof ventilation systems, reducing attic ventilation rates. Natural attic ventilation systems are needed to dry the attic space and remove heat buildup during the summer. Lastly, other factors such as recessed lights, skylights, complicated roof designs and heating ducts in the attic will all increase the risk of ice dam formation. If you plan to build a new home, these factors should be considered. For more information, contact me at 800-450-2465 or stordahl@umn.edu.

Taking, interpreting, applying forage samples

This year we saw record high hay prices in some areas of the state surpassing $200/ton. Looking into 2013 it appears forage prices will remain strong with an increasing demand for forages in many parts of the county that have been stricken by continued drought. Are you getting the most out of your hay? Are you feeding the right quantity? To help answer these questions, Dr. Rachel Endecott, MSU Extension Beef Specialist, will be in Helena on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 to give a free lecture on how to take forage samples, interpreting the results, and applying the results. The lecture starts at 6:00 pm and will be in the upper conference room at the Lewis & Clark County Fairgrounds. Four forage samples were collected from around the Helena area. Dr. Rachel Endecott will use the results of the forage laboratory tests in her lecture. For more information, contact the MSU/Lewis & Clark County Extension Office at 447-8346 or by email bsarchet@montana.edu.


Military benefits from spray equipment testing

By Sandra Avant, Agricultural Research Service When it comes to selecting spray equipment to combat harmful insects that threaten the health of deployed soldiers, military personnel can turn to U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists to find out which devices work best. For a number of years, Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists at the agency’s Southern Plains Agricultural Research Center (SPARC) in College Station, Texas, have been testing spray equipment at the Annual International Equipment Evaluation, commonly known as an “equipment rodeo.” ARS agricultural engineers Clint Hoffmann and Brad Fritz at College Station evaluate spray equipment used in insect control applications for public health throughout the world. The rodeo, held each year at the Navy Entomology Center of Excellence (NECE) in Jacksonville, Florida, is part of the Deployed War-Fighter Protection Research Program, a joint initiative of USDA and the U.S. Department of Defense to aid troops against insect attacks. One key element of the program is to devise and improve application technologies to deter and kill disease-transmitting insects like mosquitoes and sand flies. Finding out what works and does not work ensures that the best equipment is being used to protect soldiers. Sprayers of all shapes and sizes—hand-held, backpack, truck-mounted and thermal foggers with water- and oil-based sprays and insecticides—are tested and evaluated by researchers at NECE and the College Station center. Hoffman and Fritz have tested every piece of spray equipment in the military arsenal so far. At the rodeo, equipment manufacturers operate their own devices during the testing process. The results of equipment performance, whether good or bad, are then published. Scientists at College Station have developed information on droplet size for more than 85 sprayers. The data from this testing has also been incorporated into a smart phone mobile application that has been downloaded by more than 1,300 users worldwide. ARS is USDA’s principal intramural scientific research agency.

Oilseed conference slated for January 22-23 in Kennewick

By CAHNRS and WSU Extension Mark your calendars now to attend the 2013 Washington State University (WSU) Oilseed Production and Marketing Conference “Golden Opportunities” scheduled for January 22-23 at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, Washington. Plan to attend the only conference in the Pacific Northwest addressing oilseed agronomy, processing, economics, marketing and end use. Several keynote speakers from major canola production regions of North America will highlight the two-day conference, including Gary Hergert, University of Nebraska; Bob Schrock, winter canola producer from Kiowa, Kansas; Ron Sholar, executive director of the Great Plains Canola Association; and Phil Thomas, president of Brassica Corp Ltd., of Alberta, Canada and author of the Canada Canola Growers Manual. Experienced regional oilseed and livestock producers, WSU, Oregon State University and University of Illinois research and Extension faculty, and regional and national industry representatives will be sharing their expertise and perspectives in plenary and region-specific breakout sessions. Topics will include oilseed crop and chemical rotation, weed control, whole-farm economics, variety selection, nutrient and water use, insects and diseases, oilseed meal in livestock rations, biodiesel distribution, quality and use, and more. Current and future oilseed producers, livestock producers, crop input suppliers and advisors, oil and meal end users, researchers and supporting agency personnel are all invited to attend. Numerous growers, in a variety of rainfall zones and employing a variety of cropping systems, have attested to the positive impact of growing oilseed crops. “From the perspective of soil health, there is no doubt that an oilseed crop does something to the ground that’s good,” said Lee Druffel of Colton. “Canola has improved my crop diversity, it’s a deficit irrigation crop, and it also has helped break disease cycles,” added Jeff Schibel of Odessa. Curtis Hennings, Ritzville concurred, saying, “I definitely consider growing canola a successful venture when four out of five years I’ve made more money off canola than winter wheat.” The workshops are being sponsored and supported by Washington State University, USDA-ARS, Washington State Department of Agriculture, Washington Canola and Rapeseed Commission, U.S. Canola Association, conservation districts and local agribusinesses. Sponsor opportunities and exhibit space are available by contacting Karen Sowers at 509-396-5936 or ksowers@wsu. edu, or Dennis Roe at 509-335-3491 or rdroe@wsu.edu. Registration and agendas will be posted at http://css.wsu. edu/biofuels/conference.

Montana Hail Board approves refunds

Montana farmers who bought state hail insurance this year will receive a refund of 40 percent of the premiums they paid. The state Board of Hail Insurance approved the refunds after reviewing an actuarial report at its December 5 annual meeting. The Montana Department of Agriculture issued 1,925 hail insurance policies covering nearly 1.8 million acres during 2012. That’s higher than the 1.5 million acres covered in 2011, primarily because a wet spring limited planting that year, said department Deputy Director Joel Clairmont. “An independent actuary report showed strong confidence that program reserves and annual insurance premiums can continue to cover hail damage claims and allow for the refunds based on damage levels this year,” Clairmont said. The state program is designed to cover planting costs; many producers increase their protection through additional insurance from private carriers. The board decided premiums for the 2013 crop year will remain the same as those charged this year, said board Chairman Gary Gollehon of Brady, Montana. Serving with Gollehon on the board are department Director Ron de Yong, Montana State Auditor Monica Lindeen and producers Trudy Laas Skari of Chester and Jim Schillinger of Baker. For more information about state hail insurance, contact the Montana Department of Agriculture’s hail specialist at (406) 444-2402 or by email at agr@mt.gov.

The all-new BPX9000 Bale Processor from Vermeer combines simplicity, durability and versatility to meet the needs of today’s cattle producers. The easy to operate machine is built tough with a unique, T-style frame, the bed design and offset rotor produce even and consistent feed with minimal maintenance, and an optional large square bale kit includes enhancements to effectively process a variety of bales. The BPX9000 is built to maximize bale processing and minimize operator stress. The BPX9000’s slat and chain bed and positive bale feeding improve bale rotation, feeding bales more consistently into the rotor, while reducing the need for operators to reverse rotation of the bale when feeding. The split shaft in the bed allows for easier maintenance without removing the entire bed, and long-lasting bushings in the bed are resistant to net and twine wrapping. In addition, the bale processor’s offset rotor feeds material with less slugging, for a consistent cut length and higher quality feed. With exclusive cut control bars in combination with the self-cleaning rotor, excessive build-up of net and twine on the drum is eliminated. The rotor can also be manually cleaned, with easy access through a side-access door.

Farm food safety workshops offered across Nebraska

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Extension workshops in January and February will help fruit and vegetable growers comply with new federal safety law. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, signed by President Obama earlier this year, enhances the traceability of fresh produce grown in the United States, as well as mandates greater responsibility for food safety on the part of producers. The bill requires producers to evaluate hazards to their products, take steps to prevent contamination and to develop written food safety plans. The workshops will help fresh produce growers or farmer’s market managers complete the Good Agricultural Practices training. They will be presented by UNL Extension educators, with support from the University of Nebraska Rural Futures Institute. At the end of the workshop, participants will better understand GAPs, and how they can complete their own farm food safety plans. The topics that will be covered will help producers enhance worker sanitation, harvesting, handling, packaging, storage and transportation standards of fresh produce from the farm operation to markets, schools, restaurants and retail stores. By completing a Farm Food Safety Plan, producers can differentiate themselves in the marketplace and appeal to many customers who perceive this training as an added benefit. The one-day workshops will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The fee is $65 per operation, which covers educational materials, lunch and breaks. Extra participants per operation will be charged $10 each for additional breaks and meals. Registration is due one week before the workshops; a $5 late fee will be charged for registrations after that date. Registrations can be made by calling the UNL Extension Office in Hall County, 308-385-5088, or by mailing a check, made out to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, to University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension – Hall County, 3180 W. Highway 34, Grand Island, NE 68801-7279. Specify which workshop the registration is for. The schedule: • Hastings, January 24 (deadline January 17), Adams County Extension Office, 300 N.

UNL professor honored by DuPont program

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR A University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) professor is one of nine professors in the nation to be honored by the DuPont Young Professors program. Aaron Lorenz, of the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture, is part of the 2012 class of honorees. Awards are given to advance key research that is relevant to DuPont. Lorenz has been at UNL since 2010. He was honored for his work in the optimization of genomic selection for plant breeding. The award is $25,000 per year, renewed for up to three years. Lorenz received his bachelor’s degree in agriculture-plant science from the University of Minnesota, his master’s in plant breeding from Iowa State University and his doctorate in plant breeding and genomics from the University of Wisconsin. The class represents eight universities in the United States and one in Germany. It is the 44th class of DuPont Young Professors. DuPont awarded a total of $675,000. Since the inception of the award in 1967, about 557 young professors from the United States, Europe, Asia, South America, Canada and Africa have received nearly $49 million in grants. The DuPont Young Professor program is designed to provide start-up assistance to promising young and untenured research faculty working in areas of interest to DuPont. Research by the class of 2012 Young Professors represents key components of DuPont science and includes promising research in the fields of nanotechnology, genomics, system biology, next-generation herbicides, synthesis of natural products, carbon dioxide capture, DNA sequencing and enzymatic synthesis.


Keep firewood stacks from housing termites

Many Mississippians own a fireplace for the pleasure and comfort it provides on cold winter nights, but if they’re not careful, the firewood can harbor unwanted guests. In the winter, the desire to have a handy woodpile can open the door for termite problems. Blake Layton, entomologist with the Mississippi State University (MSU) Extension Service, urged those with fireplaces not to stack wood against the outside wall of the house. “There is no real risk of termite infestation through wood that is brought inside and burned immediately, but firewood that is stacked against the house, not used and left for the next year creates a high risk of termite infestation,” Layton said. Andy Londo, an Extension and research professor in Mississippi State University’s Forest and Wildlife Research Center, said incorrectly stored firewood can attract termites, ants and other pests. “Keep your firewood off the ground to limit rot and keep the critters away,” Londo said. “Wood gets moist on the ground, and this creates a favorable environment for insects to gather and multiply.” Wood that is cut and stacked in the spring should be seasoned and ready to burn in the fall and winter. “Once the wood is cut and split, stack it so air can move freely around and dry it,” Londo said. “Whether you take the time to stack your wood in rows or throw it in a pile, make sure air can move around the wood.” Rain does not hurt firewood that is stacked away from direct contact with the ground, and there is no need to cover a woodpile, Londo said. Make sure woodpiles are convenient to the house, but not touching the building to lessen the termite threat. Layton said two main termite species threaten Mississippi homes. Eastern subterranean termites are found throughout the state. Nonnative Formosan termites are found in 26 Mississippi counties, mostly in the southern part of the state, but they are spreading. “The biology of these two groups of termites is similar enough that the procedures for protecting homes against termite attack work against both species,” Layton said. The best approach to keeping a home safe from termites is to treat the house before there is a problem, making conditions unfavorable for termites to enter the building. Wood, whether it is firewood or lumber, left near the slab or foundation for prolonged periods of time can lead to a termite infestation. “Termites can enter a house through any soil-to-wood contact,” he said. “A forgotten stack of firewood that is near or touches the house can provide an opportunity for termites to enter a building.” Once they are inside a structure, termite extermination is a costly process, so the best plan is to prevent an infestation from ever occurring. ##### A man named Charles Osborne had the hiccups for 6 years.

Environment, body size impact winter calf nutrition

By NDSU Extension Service The care for dairy cattle needs to change in the winter to meet the animals’ higher maintenance requirements. “Calves are particularly susceptible to cold stress, especially during the first three to four weeks of age before they begin consuming measurable quantities of calf-starter grain,” says J.W. Schroeder, North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension Service dairy specialist. Calves lose body heat much more quickly than larger animals, which have a larger surface area. The smaller the calf, the more important this relationship becomes. For example, research shows that small calves, such as Jerseys, had a maintenance requirement at least 15 percent higher than large-breed calves such as Holsteins. The environment also has a significant impact on maintenance requirements. During the winter, calves require deep, dry bedding to help them maintain the insulating capabilities of their hair coat. A wet environment with limited bedding greatly enhances heat loss. Third, calves are born with relatively low reserves of body fat that they can mobilize during periods of low energy intake or environmental stress. The following example of a calf weighing 100 pounds demonstrates the impact of cold weather on nutrient requirements: • At 68 F, feeding 1 gallon of a milk replacer with 20 percent fat provides enough energy for about 0.5 pound of daily gain. • When the temperature drops to 41 F, 4 quarts of milk replacer is just enough to meet the calf’s maintenance requirements with nothing left for growth. • If the milk replacer has only 15 percent fat, then 4 quarts of milk replacer is sufficient for maintenance at 50 F. “So timely feeding is paramount for calf growth and development,” Schroeder says. “However, another stress occurs, even though most calves are fed equal amounts early in the morning and again later in the afternoon. The nutritional stress occurs during the long interval between the evening and morning feeding, when the temperature drops after sunset. Based on the calves’ requirements just to stay warm, the need to increase calf feeding rates during the winter is obvious.” Researchers recommend a 20 percent fat milk replacer rather than those with lower fat content. Calf-rearing experts also suggest increasing feeding rates by 50 percent or even doubling them in extreme cold conditions. In the winter, 4 quarts is not enough. Feeding 1.5 gallons of a 20 percent fat milk replacer reconstituted to 12.5 percent solids provides sufficient energy for 0.23 pound of gain at 32 F. However, maintaining a growth rate of 0.4 pound at 20 F would take 2 gallons of this liquid. Because of the higher susceptibility of small calves to cold stress, researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a 25 percent fat milk replacer for Jersey calves. Schroeder says that successfully managing calves during the winter also involves creating a dry, stress-free environment with deep bedding and protection from drafts and dampness. Calf coats can help reduce heat loss if they are kept dry. “The fact that feeding management must change to enable calves to grow and resist digestive and respiratory disease is very apparent,” he says. “So don’t skimp on liquid feeding programs, especially during the first weeks of life when calf starter intake is low. Savings by limiting the feeding of milk or milk replacer to less than 1.5 gallons daily (12.5 to 15 percent solids) or using a poor-quality milk replacer may reduce feed costs, but it invariably contributes to increased treatment costs and possibly results in conditions that lead to increased mortality and a restriction in the animal’s lifetime performance.”

Research looks at effects of biochar on prairies

As optimism grows about the benefits of applying biochar to farmland, researchers have turned their attention to a neglected topic: how biochar affects natural ecosystems. The project, started in 2011 with a competitive grant from the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, is led by Stan Harpole and Lori Biederman, Iowa State University (ISU) Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology. Biochar, a carbon-rich material similar to charcoal, is created as a byproduct of burning feedstock at high temperatures in a low-oxygen environment, a process to make biofuel called pyrolysis. When applied to crop fields, biochar has many of the same benefits for soil health as fertilizer, and also sequesters carbon underground for decades or centuries. “There’s been a lot of attention on biochar as this new miracle product that can solve multiple problems in terms of energy and environment,” Harpole said. “But there isn’t really much information about its effect on things other than crops.” As a fine powder, biochar can easily blow from agricultural fields into nearby prairies, forests or waterways. The investigators hope their research will lay the foundation for best management practices for applying biochar that will benefit both farmland and the surrounding ecosystems. In a pilot study in a greenhouse, Biederman found that biochar applications seemed to reduce prairie biodiversity, especially in belowground microbial communities. To test this on a field scale, Biederman set up plots at ISU’s Western Research and Demonstration Farm in the Loess Hills. “That was our expectation going into this experiment— that we might see a loss in diversity—but we actually see the opposite,” Biederman said. The researchers established 30 replicated plots treated with one percent or three percent additions of biochar, with or without manure. Next they planted a diverse mixture of tallgrass prairie species. Preliminary results from the first two years of the experiment suggest that biochar has a positive effect on plant and soil biodiversity, contrary to the results from the greenhouse. However, Biederman noted that while plants thrived in the three percent plots, mycorrhizae, important soil fungi that have symbiotic relationships with plant roots, diminished. “The jury is still out,” she said. The researchers will continue collecting field data for at least one more year. Uncertainty also surrounds the effects of biochar on aquatic systems. In a basic laboratory test, Harpole discovered that biochar dissolved into water-killed algae. He is now working to design a more realistic experiment that mimics how biochar moves through soil into waterways. “The experiment is so new that it’s too soon to tell what will happen,” Harpole said. “Biochar has so many different ways that it can work in the environment that you’re never sure which is going to be the important one.” In a related experiment, ISU Environmental Sciences and Agronomy student Erich Sneller is applying biochar to Sun Gold cherry tomatoes at a research plot on TableTop Farm, an organic vegetable farm near Nevada. The experiment compares plants growing with and without biochar, either inoculated with mycorrhizae or sterilized. Sneller tracks germination, growth and fruiting data on the tomatoes, and collects data on plant productivity and plant and soil nutrients. The researchers envision that farmers could supply future biofuel plants with feedstock and receive biochar in return, creating a cycle that would continually improve soil health. Potentially, biochar could be useful for prairie restoration projects as well, depending on the results of this research.

Saving energy on the farm

By Jim Stordahl, Clearwater/Polk County Extension Service, Minnesota Saving energy on farms and ranches should begin with an inventory of energy use. Mentally prepare yourself to take charge and get to the bottom of things. Start by reviewing your energy bills—there’s no better investment of your time. Some utility companies offer energy audits tailored for agricultural customers. If your provider does not offer audits, they may be able to refer you to someone who does. A number of Web sites offer agricultural energy calculators to begin this process. Following are several tips that are easy to implement and will save money. Maintain tractors and stay up on injector and filter schedules. Use the proper viscosity oils and seasonal fuels. Make fewer passes over fields by using tillage calculators, and keep ground implements sharp. Avoid excessive idling. Keep tire pressure at the lowest recommended level and avoid over-ballasting. Tillage is a main fuel use for many operations. Tillage calculators are available at this site: ecat. sc.egov.usda.gov Reduce synthetic fertilizer use. Nitrogen fertilizers are particularly heavy users of natural gas in the manufacturing process. When these fertilizers are applied in excess or at the wrong time, they waste money, do not increase crop yield and can pollute surface water and groundwater. Apply what you need, when you need it. Consider more legume sod crops in your rotation; crops such as alfalfa or clovers will significantly reduce purchased nitrogen and will reduce weeds for subsequent crops, thus saving on herbicides.  Consider conservation tillage and no-till management strategies. These approaches reduce diesel fuel consumption, preserve topsoil structure, and conserve soil carbon. Conservation tillage has demonstrated measurable reductions in carbon emissions over the past decade. Change lighting strategies. Switch incandescent lighting to compact fluorescent lamps in barns, calving sheds, and outbuildings. Consider changing yard lamps with more focused fixtures that save energy. Indirect lighting that does not reach desire area may look cool from the air, but wastes money. Lights with motion detectors may work well for many applications too. Irrigate efficiently. This usually means a combination of mechanical and management upgrades to your system. Lowering pressures on pivot irrigation systems can save considerable energy. Use pressure gauges, monitor soil moisture to avoid overwatering, and examine sprinkler nozzles regularly for wear. Studies in Western states indicate that about 25 percent of electrical energy used in irrigation is wasted due to poor pump and motor efficiency. Increase electric motor efficiency. Rebuild older motors and gain several percentage points in motor efficiency. Experts advise considering premium efficiency motors (2 to 4 percent more efficient than standard motors) in all new installations, or when the cost of rebuilding exceeds 65 percent of the price of a new motor. Match the new motor output to the task at hand and consider variable-speed drives as appropriate. Manage stock tanks to reduce electrical use during winter. Earth-bermed or super-insulated stock tanks require smaller heaters to prevent freezing. Some designs require no electricity. Manage stored fuel. A 300-gallon unsheltered aboveground tank can lose up to 10 gallons per month through evaporation during warm months, especially when painted a dark color. Silver-coat the tanks and put up a rudimentary shelter to keep them shaded. Pressure relief caps also reduce evaporation loss. Energy costs will ultimately increase. Making simple, often inexpensive changes will save you money with little or no inconveniences.

Moving snowball bush

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: Would it be OK to move my 20-year-old snowball bush (quite large) to another place? If so, any tips on replanting? A: This is not the time of year to do it, especially a bush this large. You’d be better off waiting to move it this fall or early next spring, which are times when the bush is dormant. Disturbing the roots at this time of year while the plant is fully leafed out will cause the bush to wilt and make recovery very difficult.

A paradigm shift for young cattle producers

By Dr. Roy Burris, Beef Extension Specialist, University of Kentucky A paradigm shift is a change in your way of thinking that doesn’t just happen but is driven by agents of change. Young cattle producers will have to deal with these “agents of change” in ways that we could not have imagined a generation ago. In my opinion, some of these changes are in the areas of: • Decreased use of grain. This is a “game changer”. I believe that, in the future, cattle enterprises will not be able to compete for grain. We will have more dependence on forages and by-product feeds. Cattle cannot compete with land-lease prices which are being paid by grain farmers and there will be more pressure to use grain for the rapidly increasing world population. Young producers might want to background cattle on forages and by-products so that they can spend less time in feedlots. We will need to select and manage cattle so that they can produce acceptable carcasses with less grain. • Public perception of cattle producers. Animal welfare has become the “battle cry” for people that oppose animal agriculture. We must not only continue to produce animals humanely but now we have to show and insure the consuming public that we do that. The “anti’s” are not the consuming public. The “anti’s” don’t eat meat and they are not likely to change but we can’t sit back and watch them destroy animal agriculture. What they seem to believe is that all sentient (anything that can sense pain) beings are equal to humans. How will you respond when you see yourself as “animal caregivers” but your way of life is attacked and vilified? You will need to work on this. Those attacks will probably continue. • Dealing with science. I know how some folks think that young farmers are “good ole boys” who like to be outdoors. Forget that. Good cattle producers will, in the future, have to have an understanding of science that will go well beyond what you get in high school. You will need to have a working knowledge of, not just genetics, but genomics, nutrigenomics, etc. These things sound difficult but will help you take the guesswork, and some risk, out of cattle production. For example, we can determine the genetic make-up of cattle and select/breed for cattle that carry genes for desired traits. Or, we might be able to feed and manage cattle to regulate the genes that they have. For example, we might be able to “turn on” genes that control immunity prior to vaccinating and shipping feeder cattle by feeding particular forms of nutrients. This would have obvious health benefits. But… technology is only good if you know how to use it properly. Take every opportunity to learn new things. • Financial management. I would caution young cattle producers not to plan on mortgaging your parents’ farm to get your start. Lending institutions do not want to have to foreclose on land and homes that have been in families for generations. That happened in the 1980’s and was a public relations nightmare for them. You should be able to present a business plan and show that you can cash flow your operation. You have to have a viable business plan. Finally, you will need to be savvy with new and emerging technology. Opportunities exist for those who adapt to change but doing things the same way as grandpa may signal an early exit from the cattle business. There will continue to be good opportunities for young cattlemen in the future. You will need to be up for the task.

Controlling cottonwood seeds

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I sprayed Florel last and this year to inhibit seed production on my cottonwood tree. It worked last year but it failed completely this year because I evidently picked the wrong time to spray. The company that manufactures Florel recommends spraying “from midbloom to full bloom.” What does that mean? Does it mean midway as the leaves are forming or midway as the pods are forming? The arborist in this area is not familiar with Florel. A: Cottonwood trees have to be the most challenging of trees for controlling flowering and fruit. You must really like challenges. Determining midbloom on a mature cottonwood is a real challenge. Basically, it refers to when approximately 50 percent of the flowers are open and the balance are about to open. That is why two applications usually are recommended to get maximum control of any fruit development. For answers to general horticultural questions, go to http:// www.ag.ndsu.edu/horticulture.

Watch houseplants for insects

By Jim Stordahl, Clearwater/Polk County Extension, Minnesota With a Minnesota winter at its best, we are in “houseplant season” which is when we turn to houseplants to satisfy our itching green thumbs.  It is important that we inspect our houseplants for insect or mite pests that may have developed as the warm, dry environment in many homes is conducive to the development of insect populations.  They may have entered the home on houseplants that were kept outdoors last summer or came in with a holiday gift plant or may even have hitched a ride on the Christmas tree or other greens. It’s common to receive calls from houseplant enthusiasts asking about the sticky substance that they are finding on the leaves of some plants, as well as on the surface of the table or floor beneath them.  This sticky substance is called honeydew and indicates the presence of scale insects, spider mites or mealy bugs. These insects and their relatives are usually found on the undersides of the leaves along the veins, on the stems of the plants and in the axils of the leaves.  They cause injury to the plants by using needle-like mouthparts to pierce plant tissue and feed on the plant’s sap.  All three of these pests excrete honeydew, which is a sticky, clear substance made up of excess sugars that are not digested by the pest.  In addition to the presence of this sticky substance, the leaves of the plants often turn yellow and drop, or in the case of spider mites, the leaves may become stippled with light-colored spots.  In severe infestations, the leaves of the plant may be covered with fine webbing. Spider mites are not true insects, but are spider relatives.  They are difficult to see with the naked eye.  To verify spider mite presence, place a sheet of white paper under discolored or sticky leaves, then tap the leaves and watch for tiny moving creatures on the paper. Whiteflies, thrips, and aphids may also be a problem and houseplants should be checked for their presence.  Although a hand held magnifying glass is helpful in finding these insects, most of them are visible to the naked eye. As soon as any of these pests are detected, isolate the infested plants.  Wash off light infestations of these pests on plants with smooth leaves using a soft cloth and a mild soap solution made up of 1⁄2 teaspoon of mild dish soap mixed in a quart of water. Because so many dish soaps now contain degreasing chemicals, it may be safer to use an insecticidal soap available at most nurseries and garden centers.  Actually, insecticidal soap is about the only product available that is effective in controlling spider mites.  Scale insects or mealybugs can be removed from plants by using a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol.  Avoid using alcohol on plants with hairy leaves such as African violets and gloxinias. Heavily infested plants may require the application of a chemical insecticide.  There are several insecticides available that will help control houseplant insects.  Many of then are available in ready-to-use containers.  It is very important that the plant and insect pest that you plan to treat are both listed on the label.  Whenever insecticides are used, it is important to carefully read and follow all directions and precautions printed on the label.  Unless heavily infested plants are especially valuable, it may be advisable to discard them instead of using heavy applications of a chemical product.

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: All the tall canes in my raspberry patch died this spring. I think it was because of the mild winter and then a late freeze. All of them now are growing from the bottom. Each of the plants has three or four canes. Should I thin them out? I live in south-central South Dakota. The patch is quite thick because I don’t have them growing in a row. Will I get a crop this year? A: Cut out the thin, pencil-sized canes. This will allow for more space and energy to be put into the stronger, stouter canes. As far as fruiting goes this year, that depends on the raspberry. If they are spring/summer bearing, they should have flowers or small fruits developing on them right now. If they are fall-bearing, they likely will bear sometime in August or September, but it depends on your climatic conditions. It likely was the winter weather conditions that killed off the canes.

OSU has new potato breeding head

By Oregon State University Oregon State University (OSU) once again has a plant breeder leading its potato development efforts after filling a position that was vacant for nearly two years.  Sagar Sathuvalli, who started in December, is leading OSU’s work to create new varieties of potatoes that are more nutritious and resist pests and diseases, including late blight. He is based at its Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center. A native of India, Sathuvalli spent most of the last decade in Corvallis, earning doctoral and master’s degrees in horticulture from OSU. In 2011, he began working as a post-doctoral research associate in hazelnut breeding and genetics at OSU. In his new post, Sathuvalli and his colleagues will search for favorable traits in wild species, then cross those potatoes with domesticated ones. Creating new breeds of potatoes can take at least 12 years, but OSU hopes to speed up the process by using genetic markers, which are sequences of DNA that are found near genes researchers are analyzing. Sathuvalli assumes the responsibilities of departed OSU potato researchers Dan Hane, who retired, and Isabel Vales, who accepted a job elsewhere.  The position had remained vacant because of funding shortages, said Russ Karow, the head of OSU’s department of crop and soil science. A portion of Sathuvalli’s salary will be funded through an endowment created by a recent $500,000 commitment to OSU by the Oregon Potato Commission. “There is an expectation to find new varieties for the Pacific Northwest,” Karow said. “We are in a strong cooperative relationship with the Oregon Potato Commission, regularly discussing issues and research. We work hand-in-hand with the commission to look at their research priorities.”   Sathuvalli is also working closely with OSU’s potato researchers around the state, including Solomon Yilma in Corvallis, Brian Charlton in Klamath Falls and Clint Shock in Ontario. The group is collaborating on breeding and marketing efforts with peers in Washington and Idaho as part of the Pacific Northwest Tri-State Breeding Program. “We will try to find solutions as a team,” said Sathuvalli. “My main philosophy is to listen to growers, to see what they’re interested in and any issues in variety development. I look forward to finding out what the industry needs.” When not conducting research, Sathuvalli will perform duties for the OSU Extension Service by disseminating new information to farmers and processors. Among his top priorities is to spearhead the development of a new website. “We will use the website to create awareness about our breeding program. It will house information useful for researchers across the globe,” said Sathuvalli. “Hopefully it will bring new collaborations, too.”  Real-time alerts about disease and pest outbreaks, such as zebra chip and tuber moth, will also be featured prominently on the website. Potatoes were Oregon’s sixth most-important agricultural commodity in terms of gross sales in 2011, according to a report by the OSU Extension Service. The state’s sold $165 million of them in 2011 after harvesting nearly 40,000 acres, the report said.

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I am landscaping around my new house. I was planning on putting up a fence in my backyard for my dog, but my association nixed a fence. I am thinking that I can do the same thing if I plant a hedge. I will need something that grows fairly fast and is dense enough to keep a dog in. I am willing to trim the hedge but don’t want a hedge with berries because it is messy and attracts too many birds. Do you have a suggestion? My landscaper was thinking cotoneaster, but they have berries. I don’t want something that gets woody and has to be cut to the ground all the time. A type of evergreen would be nice because I wouldn’t have to worry about leaves. However, evergreens might get a little spendy. (Bismarck, North Dakota) A: How about planting forsythia, lilac, spirea or hydrangeas? I would suggest a mix-and-match hedge to provide some variety. However, local associations usually do not allow that because it wants uniformity in appearance. Be sure to check with the association before committing the time and money.

Livestock handling expert is Heuermann Lecturer

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR Temple Grandin, a world leader in understanding livestock behavior and designing livestock handling facilities, is the Heuermann Lecturer at 7 p.m. Tuesday, January 15, in the Hardin Hall auditorium on the University of NebraskaLincoln’s (UNL) East Campus, 33rd and Holdrege. Her topic is “Improving Animal Welfare and Communication with the Public.” A short reception follows the lecture. Born autistic, at age 2 Grandin had no speech and showed all signs of severe autism. While doctors advised institutionalization, Grandin’s mother disagreed. Through many hours of speech therapy and intensive teaching, Grandin learned speech. She also over time learned that she thinks in pictures, while many people do not. She said it is the ability to think in pictures that helps her help animals and their handlers using low-stress, behavior-based livestock handling techniques and facilities she has developed. An animal sciences professor at Colorado State University, Grandin has had a major impact on the meat and livestock industries worldwide through design of animal handling facilities, industry consulting, research, media exposure for the livestock industry concerning animal care, and various means of outreach. It is important the public know about the many improvements made in handling animals, Grandin said, adding, “in my communication with the public, I have found that many people are curious and just want to know. The industry needs to do a better job of communicating.” She has published several hundred industry publications, book chapters and technical papers on animal handling, plus 63 refereed journal articles and 10 books. Her book “Animals in Translation” was a New York Times bestseller, while “Livestock Handling and Transport” is in its third edition. Among her other books are “Thinking in Pictures; Animals Make us Human; Improving Animal Welfare: A Practical Approach,” and “The Way I See It.” “Temple Grandin is the world’s foremost authority on livestock handling systems and is well known for being an avid communicator on the critical importance of attention to animal stewardship and care throughout the entire animal agriculture supply chain,” said Ronnie Green, University of Nebraska vice president and Harlan vice chancellor, Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at UNL. “It is a tremendous opportunity to have her with us as a Heuermann Lecturer to discuss and reflect on America’s high standards and dedication to animal stewardship by our farmers and ranchers in the production of the highest quality and safest products in the world.” Among Grandin’s many awards are the Meritorious Achievement Award from the Livestock Conservation Institute and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. In 2010 she was named to Time magazine’s list of “The 100 Most Influential People in the World.” In 2011 she was inducted into the Cowgirl Hall of Fame, and in 2012 into the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame. A movie about her early life and career with the livestock industry received seven Emmy awards, a Golden Globe, and a Peabody Award. Grandin is a past member of the board of directors of the Autism Society of America and lectures throughout the U.S. on her experience with autism. Interviews with Grandin have appeared in the New York Times, People, Time, and on National Public Radio, 20/20, The View and the BBC. Heuermann Lectures in IANR focus on providing and sustaining enough food, natural resources and renewable energy for the world’s people, and on securing the sustainability of rural communities where the vital work of producing food and renewable energy occurs. They’re made possible by a gift from B. Keith and Norma Heuermann of Phillips, long-time university supporters with a strong commitment to Nebraska’s production agriculture, natural resources, rural areas and people. Heuermann Lectures stream live at heuermannlectures. unl.edu, and are archived at the site shortly after the lecture. They are broadcast on NET2 World at a date following the lecture. ##### labyrinth (LAH-buh-rinth), noun. A mazelike series of connected tunnels and passages through which it is difficult to find one’s way.

##### Filmmaker Rick Beyer says his grandmother always left a lasting impression: “She carried with her a powerful aroma. I don’t know what kind of perfume she used, but it was the double-barrel, 90-proof, knockdown, render-the-victim-unconscious, moose-killing variety. It was almost impossible to go into her room and remain breathing for any length of time. When she would leave the house to go spend six months with my Aunt Lillian, my mother and sisters would throw open all the windows, strip the bedding and the curtains and the rugs, and spend several days washing and airing things out, trying frantically to make the pungent odor go away.”

New research in the diagnosis and treatment of neonatal calf diarrhea By Dr. Michelle Arnold and Dr. Cynthia Gaskill, University of Kentucky Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

Diarrhea in neonatal calves is one of the leading causes of morbidity (sickness) and mortality (death) in North America and Europe and continues to be a major cause of economic loss to the beef cattle industry. There are five major infectious causes of diarrhea in calves less than 21 days of age: E. coli K99, rotavirus, coronavirus, Cryptosporidia, and Salmonella species. Noninfectious factors such as insufficient or poor quality colostrum, poor sanitation, stress, and cold weather can cause or contribute to neonatal calf diarrhea as well. Regardless of the cause, diarrhea results in increased loss of electrolytes and water in the feces of calves and decreases milk intake. Ultimately, this process causes dehydration, metabolic acidosis (the blood is more acidic than it should be), electrolyte abnormalities including sodium deficiency, and a negative energy balance from the lost nutrients and lack of milk. Oral electrolyte solutions have typically been used to replace fluid losses, correct acid-base and electrolyte levels in the blood, and provide nutritional support with the added benefit of being relatively inexpensive and easy to administer. Recent research has elicited better methods to assess and treat a calf with diarrhea as well as better guidelines for choosing an oral electrolyte solution. Faster and more accurate diagnostic tests have also been developed to uncover the underlying cause of the diarrhea. Rapid diagnosis is critical to develop the best treatment options and to prevent future outbreaks. Accurate assessment of a calf with diarrhea is necessary to determine if oral fluid therapy is adequate or if intravenous (IV) fluids are indicated. The choice depends on determination of two important factors: 1) the severity of the dehydration and 2) the severity of the metabolic acidosis or low pH of the blood. Dehydration is relatively easy to monitor by examination of the position of the eyeball and by skin elasticity or the “skin tent” test. The degree of recession of the eyeball in the orbit (how far the eye is “sunken in”) can be estimated by gently pulling the lower eyelid down and measuring the distance between the eye and the socket. If the distance is greater than 0.2 inches, dehydration is considered to be more than 8% and IV fluids are needed. Likewise, if the skin is pinched on the side of the neck and rotated 90 degrees then released and the time for the skinfold to disappear is greater than 6 seconds, the calf is considered greater than 8% dehydrated and in need of intravenous fluids. Although these measurements are somewhat subjective and may occasionally be inaccurate, they are by far the most accurate clinical indicators of dehydration that can be easily measured in the field. Conversely, field methods to assess acid-base status are not as good because they are based on a “depression” or “demeanor” score to predict the level of acidosis. Calves often have other concurrent metabolic problems that cause depression so these scores may be incorrect in complicated cases. Two parameters are important to assess: 1) the ability to stand (strong, weak or wobbly, down or recumbent) and 2) the ability to suck (strong, weak or slow, or no suckle reflex). In general, a standing calf with a strong to moderate suckle reflex or that demonstrates a “chewing action” should be given oral fluids. Any calf with a very weak or absent suckle reflex should be given IV fluid therapy because, if oral fluids are given to a calf with ileus (no gut motility), the fluid is not absorbed

but instead pools in the rumen resulting in bloat and/or rumen acidosis. ANY calf that is severely depressed and unable to stand requires intravenous fluids. The question often arises whether to allow a calf treated with oral electrolytes to continue nursing. Some experts used to recommend a “rest the gut” approach, suggesting that continued milk feeding worsens diarrhea. However, research has shown that milk feeding does not prolong or worsen diarrhea, nor does it delay healing of the intestines. Calves should be maintained on their full milk diet (continue nursing) plus oral electrolytes when possible as long as they exhibit diarrhea. Damaged intestines need metabolic fuel to optimize repair and milk provides a readily available source of nutrition to facilitate that repair. In addition, milk is more energy dense than electrolytes so continued milk feeding minimizes weight loss associated with prolonged bouts of diarrhea. If calves are depressed and refuse to nurse, a hypertonic oral electrolyte product such as Calf-Lyte II HE or Enterolyte HE can be used but, if milk feeding is not resumed within 12 hours, blood glucose concentrations will drop too low and the calves will get too weak to respond to oral treatment alone. Calves with diarrhea, regardless of the cause, will usually have an overgrowth of the E. coli bacteria in the small intestine that can be absorbed into the bloodstream and cause systemic signs of illness including fever, loss of appetite, and lethargy. Injectable antibiotics and injectable nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) such as Banamine® are recommended in calves showing these signs. Work with your veterinarian to choose the products that will work best in your herd outbreak. Currently there is no research evidence to support the use of corticosteroids, motility modifiers, immunostimulants, intestinal “protectants” or “absorbants”, or probiotics for calf diarrhea. Improved diagnostics are now available to ascertain the cause of neonatal calf diarrhea. The UKVDL has recently developed a Calf Diarrhea Multiplex PCR panel (cost of $50 plus a $10 accession fee) which tests for the major diarrhea pathogens in calves less than 21 days old including: E.coli K99, Rotavirus, Coronavirus, Salmonella spp., and Cryptosporidia from one fecal sample submitted early in the course of disease and before any treatment is instituted. It is highly accurate as it detects the DNA or “molecular fingerprint” of the various pathogens and results are available within 1-2 days. A culture of the bacteria is also recommended (an additional $15) in order to identify which antibiotics will work best against bacterial agents. At least 5 grams of feces must be submitted in a labeled, leak-proof container maintained at a cold temperature during transport. Do not submit fecal samples in gloves; screw cap tubes or vials are preferred in the laboratory. Call the UKVDL (859) 257-8283 or check the website http://vdl.uky.edu for more information. ##### “Never take the time with your grandchildren for granted,” advises Lisa. “Every single minute with the little ones–whether those minutes include stinky diapers and equally stinky attitudes or giggles and grins and big squeezes around Grandma’s neck–is a gift.

Spring semester water seminar series scheduled

By University of Nebraska-Lincoln IANR The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s (UNL) spring semester water seminar will feature more than a dozen lectures covering a variety of timely water-related topics. The free public lectures begin January 16 and continue weekly through April 24, except for March 20, during spring break. The 14 lectures are Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the first floor auditorium of Hardin Hall, northeast corner of North 33rd and Holdrege streets, UNL East Campus. “Weekly topics run the gamut of timely and provocative water and water-related subjects, which broadens the scope of the lecture series and ensures that there are at least one or two lectures that anyone interested in water can relate to and have interest in,” said Nebraska Water Center (NWC) assistant director Lorrie Benson, who organizes the annual series. The NWC is part of the University of Nebraska’s Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Institute. Andrea Brookfield of the University of Kansas opens the lecture series with a talk on integrating hydrologic models, building new tools for managing water. “Modeling is an essential and critical tool, both for water quantity and quality, for current and future water management, so it’s not unusual to use the lecture series to increase our knowledge of the latest practices in that field,” Benson said. Other speakers and lectures include a talk on estimating and measuring global precipitation in the 21st century by George Huffman of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration on February 6; the new local politics of water by Megan Mullin of Temple University on February 20; and adaptive governance of urban watersheds by Ahjond Garmestani of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on March 6. Invasive species is another issue of increasing importance in managing water and water systems and David Strayer of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies will speak on the effects of the Zebra Mussel invasion on aquatic ecosystems in the Hudson River and other areas on March 13. Zebra Mussels are a persistent and increasing threat to many Nebraska and Iowa ecosystems, as well. On April 10, Jeremy Weiss of the University of Arizona will address the ramifications of recent variations in low temperature and moisture constraints on vegetation in the southwestern U.S. Later in the month, Steven Peterson of the U.S. Geological Survey will address the High Plains groundwater availability study and how abundant groundwater in the High Plains aquifer region doesn’t necessarily mean abundant surface water. Other speakers in the series hail from the University of Nevada, Reno, and the University of Iowa. The complete January through April schedule appears below and is posted online at watercenter.unl.edu. Videos of most lectures, along with speaker PowerPoint presentations, will also be posted at that web address within a few days after the lecture. • January 16: Integrated Hydrologic Models: Building New Tools for Water Management – Andrea Brookfield, University of Kansas • January 23: The Niobrara River Basin Study: Using Various Models to Assess Water Supplies and Demands – Brandi Flyr, Nebraska Department of Natural Resources • January 30: Participatory Water Governance: Experiences & Issues from Around the World – Kate Berry, University of Nevada, Reno • February 6: (Williams Memorial Lecture) Global Precipitation in the 21st Century George Huffman, National Aeronautics and Space Administration • February 13: Do We Really Have Too Much Water Pollution? The Nexus Between Economic Science and Physical Science – Steven J. Taff, University of Minnesota • February 20: The New Local Politics of Water – Megan Mullin, Temple University • February 27: Resistance and Resilience of Aquatic Communities to Low Flow Disturbance – Annika Walters, University of Wyoming • March 6: Adaptive Governance of Urban Watersheds – Ahjond Garmestani, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency • March 13: Effects of the Zebra Mussel Invasion on Aquatic Ecosystems: the Hudson River and Beyond – David Strayer, Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies • March 20: No seminar (UNL Spring Break) continued on page a68

U.S. wheat demand

By Casey Chumrau, USW Market Analyst In its World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) released December 13, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) surprised many analysts by lowering the 2012/13 U.S. wheat export forecast from 29.9 million metric tons (MMT) to 28.6 MMT, equal to 2011/12 exports. Based on the current level of total U.S. wheat sales, it is understandable why USDA would make such a move. However, there are many factors that suggest the United States could further increase the pace of sales in the second half of the marketing year. As of December 13, total known outstanding sales and accumulated exports were 17.7 MMT, 7 percent lower than last year’s year-to-date total. However, commercial sales at the end of June were 21 percent off last year’s pace. A very strong August and a solid end to the calendar year helped lagging sales narrow the gap with the prior year’s mark. Competitive prices will help to drive the pace of sales in the second half of 2012/13. Since September, U.S. prices have remained relatively stable while competitor prices rose. As of December 2, U.S. soft red winter (SRW) and white wheat are less expensive than wheat from any other major exporter and major customers have noticed. In the month of December, Egypt has purchased 473,000 MT of U.S. wheat, compared to just 150,000 MT earlier in the marketing year and nearly tripling the 2011/12 sales-to-date of 246,700 MT. Tender results announced Wednesday showed Egypt purchased SRW at FOB $335/MT, which is about $20 below Russian milling wheat. This is a strong reversal from early August when Russian wheat prices were about $30/MT less than SRW. In addition, the United States has an ample supply of high quality wheat, unlike many competitors. U.S. production increased 13 percent in 2012/13 to 61.8 MMT, the highest mark since 2008/09. Unfavorable weather resulted in less fortunate harvests for other major wheat producers. Aside from Canada, which increased production by 8 percent, production in all the traditional wheat producers and the Black Sea countries declined in 2012/13. As a result, several suppliers have discussed limiting exports. Ukraine has publicly vacillated on the topic and Russia has indicated it will consider limits in 2013. This week, the Argentine government announced that it will allow 4.0 MMT of wheat exports for the marketing year, a 27 percent reduction from its original plan to permit exports of 5.5 MMT. Poor weather conditions not only lowered production levels but also affected the crop quality around the world. Harvest reports this week from Australia, for example, indicate lower-than-expected protein levels from the premier wheat growing region in the east and a 26 percent decline in production for the year. Fortunately, the United States added to its consistent supply of high protein wheat in 2012/13 thanks to a harvest with above average protein levels for hard red winter (HRW) and hard red spring (HRS) wheat. Futures prices have trended down in the last few weeks, which could make U.S. wheat even more competitive. However, the series of bullish factors outlined here complicate the current marketplace. Knowledgeable U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) representatives across the world are available to help customers navigate the market, manage risk and capitalize on excellent opportunities to purchase high quality U.S. wheat.

Texas cotton getting a genetic ‘tune-up’

Can you imagine trying to build a competitive racecar with old parts? Chances are, the entry would not fare well at the Indy 500. Very much the same thing might be said about today’s crops, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientist. “Contemporary crops such as Texas cotton are like finely tuned racing machines — they need high quality parts to perform optimally,” said Dr. David Stelly, AgriLife Research cotton geneticist in College Station. “And they constantly need new ones to replace ones that are no longer functional, as well as those that are still effective but no longer at the cutting edge of competition.” Stelly said his role in the AgriLife Research cotton breeding program is to infuse new genes and gene combinations into the genetics and breeding research arena, “so that we can utilize natural genetic resources to help meet the many challenges breeding programs face.” Transferring genes into a cultivated crop from a wild species “is like swimming upstream, one is fighting all sorts of biological and genetic barriers,” he said. For years, he and his long-time research assistant, Dwaine Raska, have been transferring the alien genes by a special breeding process called “chromosome substitution.” “Using chromosome substitution, we can target one pair of cultivated cotton chromosomes at a time, and replace it with the corresponding pair of chromosomes from a wild species chosen as the donor. On average, each substitution replaces about 2,000 cotton genes with donor genes,” Stelly said. Having already developed chromosome substitution lines for many chromosomes from three donor species, Stelly is working in collaboration with a former graduate student, Dr. Sukumar Saha, now with the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service unit at Mississippi State University, and his associates, to document their effects on cotton plant and fiber improvement. Stelly noted that the chromosome substitution breeding and research was made possible only because of teamwork among researchers and research supporters, especially AgriLife Research, the Texas State Support Committee, Cotton Inc., the Texas Department of Agriculture’s Food and Fiber Research Commission and the Agricultural Research Service. Searching for the best parts To significantly advance the cotton industry’s “racing machines,” breeders must shop around to find the best parts, and figure out how to optimize their contributions to performance, he said. “Fortunately, nature provides a plethora of genetic variation,” Stelly said. “It’s up to us to find it, move it into agronomically useful types, and to figure out how to use it wisely. Whether mechanical or genetic, making one change often requires that others be made to achieve superiority.” Contemporary production of cotton in Texas and elsewhere requires cotton seed with superb genes, plus good production infrastructure and technology, superb growers and a good dose of luck, he said. “If a grower sows cotton seeds lacking a fantastic set of genes that confer high production, high fiber quality, resilience to stresses, pests and pathogens, expectations for the crop would be less than good from the outset.” The grower’s requirements pose an extreme challenge for cotton breeding programs that release cultivated varieties, because producers must buy elite genetic types that are good-to-great for all traits, Stelly said. Because of the ever-present pressure for rapid development of successful cultivars, U.S. breeding programs have historically relied heavily on previously developed cultivars and closely related lines as parents, he said. This recycling of genes from relatively few historically elite agricultural types of cotton has created a genetic “bottleneck.” “We have excellent genetic types of cotton and excellent cotton breeders, but we need ‘new blood’ or new cotton genes, to create lots of new genetic combinations, of which a few are likely to yield significant improvements,” Stelly said. While Texas leads the U.S. in cotton production, producing about 25 percent of the nation’s crop on about 6 million acres, there is competition to this No. 1 cash crop for the state, Stelly said. “Industrial technologies and competition from synthetic petroleum-based fibers demand significant modifications and enhancements to cotton fiber physical and chemical properties, especially those that affect dying and high-speed processing,” he said.

Texas cotton getting a genetic ‘tune-up’ CONTINUED FROM PAGE B3

Also, ongoing climate changes will alter the scope and scale of the challenges found in current production areas, and probably lead to production in new areas with new sets of biotic and abiotic problems, Stelly said. “We can use genes to address these challenges and competition in the field,” he said. Genetic improvements or modifications can help keep pests and pathogens at bay, fight off abiotic stresses such as cold, heat, water deficiencies, salt and nutrient deficiencies, Stelly said. Stelly sees the opportunities for genetic improvements as almost unlimited, and very exciting. “A key ingredient, in almost all scenarios, is the availability of ample amounts of genetic variation that is available to the breeder to mold new, improved genetic types using the combinatorial ‘magic’ of Mendelian heredity,” Stelly said. “We are concomitantly developing high-throughput DNA marker methods for cotton to expedite that follow-through work with the chromosome substitution lines.” Traditional breeding methods are not very effective for infusing wild germplasm into cotton, he said, because during the backcrossing process, “we think that the alien genes get eliminated very quickly.” Stelly uses a modified method for chromosome substitution to avoid those problems almost completely. The effects differ among each alien chromosome, he said, ultimately depending on which genes are present on that substituted chromosome, and how they interact with the other approximate 58,000 genes found in Upland cotton. Stelly said they are beginning to apply genomics tools to determine which genes are present, which are expressed and how they interact. Once developed, the lines produced by the project can be screened and “used by anyone … and for essentially any trait subject to genetic control,” he said. “The resulting advances will enable the baseline performances of cotton to be elevated, and could lead to unforeseen revolutionary advances.” Stelly said one of the group’s main activities at present is to recruit partners – breeders, physiologists, pathologists – in studying these new chromosome substitution lines. “We are actively seeking partners to help breed derived types that can help the research community pinpoint singlegene and multi-gene effects in manners complementary to other means of genetic analysis,” he said. “My expectation is that with the aid of marker-based selection, the cotton breeding community will be able to use these new kinds of wild germplasm resources far, far more effectively than in the past. It just keeps getting more and more exciting.”

Watering roses

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I always have known that you should not water the foliage of roses because it can create black spot diseases. However, I have about a half a city block that is lawn and rose garden. It has a sprinkler system throughout. Should I water only during the day? This area requires a great deal of water because it is so large. A: Get your sprinkler system heads reconfigured to not impact the rose beds. Any competent irrigation contractor can do this for you by doing a little repiping and resetting of the sprinklers so that the direct spray stays where it is supposed to, which is on the lawn. If for some reason that isn’t possible, then program the system to come on at about 3 a.m. so that the morning sun can dry the foliage before black spot fungus can develop. You would then have to get into the habit of applying fungicides on about a 14-day basis to the more black spot-susceptible varieties of roses. Look for products such as Fore, Rubigan or Funginex. In the fall, strict sanitation will go a long way in keeping this pesky disease under control. Clean up all leaf and cane litter and cut the canes back in the early spring. Look carefully on the canes for any evidence of diseased or damaged stock. If you find some, remove them carefully and then burn or find another way to get rid of them. Do not compost any diseased waste because the fungal spores will survive typical composting temperatures.

Guide to common foliar diseases of cereal crops in Montana

Trader’s Dispatch, January 2013 — Page B6

Dr. Mary Burrows, Extension Plant Pathology Specialist, Montana State University

Tan spot (Pyrenophora tritici-repentis) of wheat Symptoms: Small, yellow spots on the leaves when the fungus first infects the leaf which expand into an ‘eye’ shape, sometimes with a brown (necrotic) ‘pupil’ and a yellow halo if there is enough moisture; yellow halo much broader than seen with Septoria; straw will have tiny black, raised structures (pseudothecia); seed can have red smudge Risk Factors: Continuous wheat production, notill with wheat residue, irrigation; infection requires 6-24 hours of moisture and moderate temperatures (68-82°F) Management: Crop rotation, residue reduction, use of best-yielding variety in your region; protect flag leaf area with fungicides

Septoria leaf spot (Septoria tritici and Stagnospora nodorum) of wheat and barley Symptoms: Small, yellow spots on the leaves when the fungus first infects the leaf which expand into tan to brown and irregular to lens-shaped lesions with little to no yellow halo; if very moist small black specks (pycnidia) will be formed in the lesion Risk factors: Continuous cereal production, notill with cereal residue, irrigation; infection requires 6-24 hours of moisture and moderate temperatures (68-82°F) Management: Crop rotation, residue reduction, use of best-yielding variety in your region; protect flag leaf area with fungicides

Physiological leaf spot (abiotic disorder) of wheat and barley Symptoms: Can be confused with tan spot and Septoria leaf spot but symptoms are uniform on leaf and symptoms on all leaves, not just lower leaves; edges of lesions are distinct, not diffuse Risk factors: High pH soil, variety susceptibility Management: Variety selection; soil pH modification with potash is limited in effectiveness

Bacterial leaf blight and black chaff (Xanthomonas translucens pv. translucens and X. campestris pv. vesicatoria) of wheat and barley Symptoms: Small, water-soaked spots on leaves which elongate into linear streaks that become necrotic tan or brown; often the tips of the leaves become shredded; leaves feel ‘shellaced’ or slick; when very wet bacteria ooze from leaves or glumes Risk factors: Saving seed from a crop infested with bacterial blight or black chaff Management: Variety selection; use clean seed

Net blotch and spot blotch (Pyrenophora teres) and spot blotch (Bipolaris sorokiniana) of barley Symptoms: Small, round to oblong brown spots or netlike necrosis; net blotch can occur in a spot form Risk factors: Continuous barley; no-till with barley residue, irrigation Management: Crop rotation, variety selection, irrigation management to reduction of humidity in the canopy, light tillage to reduce residue, and fungicide application.

Scald (Rhynchosporium secalis) of barley Symptoms: Very distinct dark brown ring around a tan center Risk factors: Continuous barley; no-till with barley residue, irrigation Management: Crop rotation, variety selection, irrigation management to reduce of humidity in the canopy, light tillage to reduce residue, and fungicide application.

Stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis) of wheat and barley Symptoms: Yellow pustules occurring in stripes; different subspecies infect wheat and barley; spores are wind-dispersed; overwinters on wheat and other grasses Risk factors: Overwintering stripe rust, incidence of stripe rust in other wheat-growing regions in North America Management: Variety selection, fungicides

Leaf rust of wheat (Puccinia triticina) and barley (Puccinia hordei) Symptoms: Small, red-orange spore masses (pustules) on leaves; spores rub off on your finger; older pustules or those on resistant varieties will appear black; spores are wind-dispersed Risk factors: Incidence of leaf rust in other cereal-growing regions in North America (particularly south and east of Montana), wind conditions and time of infection; infection is favored by 6-8 hours of dew and temperatures from 60 to 80°F Management: Variety selection, fungicides

Stem rust of wheat and barley (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) Symptoms: Small, red-brown spore masses (pustules) with frayed edges on stems and leaves; spores rub off on your finger; older pustules or those on resistant varieties will appear black; spores are wind-dispersed Risk factors: Incidence of stem rust in other cereal-growing regions in North America (particularly south and east of Montana), wind conditions and time of infection; infection is favored warm day temperatures from 77 to 86°F and cool night temperatures 59 to 68°F and dew; barberry is the alternate host Management: Variety selection, fungicides

Guide to head diseases of wheat and barley in Montana By Dr. Mary Burrows, Extension Plant Pathology Specialist, Montana State University

Common bunt (stinking smut, covered smut) of wheat (Tilletia tritici or T. laevis) Symptoms: Grain kernels replaced with brown masses of spores known as smut balls; fishy smell. Risk factors: Contaminated seed, often from previous crop. Management: Resistant cultivars, fungicide seed treatment, new seed source.

Sooty mold (primarily Alternaria, but other fungi can be involved) Symptoms: Glumes. other tissues covered with black, sootyappearing mold; diseased kernels are discolored, weathered, black at seed ends, embryos often shriveled and brown to black in color Risk factors: Warm, moist weather during maturation, delayed harvest. Management: None practical, avoid moisture during crop storage.

Black chaff of wheat and barley (Xanthomas spp.) Symptoms: Red/brown/black streaks on glumes; no spots on leaves, although stems or nodes may also be dark. Risk factors: Contaminated seed, often from previous crops; can also be on residue or soilborne. Management: Crop rotation to non-grass crop, tillage to bury residue, clean seed.

Melanism (abiotic) Symptoms: Red/brown/black streaks on glumes; no spots on leaves, although stems or nodes may also be dark. Risk factors: Stress (particularly heat stress), variety (genetics) Management: Variety selection.

Dwarf bunt (TCK) of winter wheat (Tilletia controversa Kuhn) Symptoms: Grain kernels replaced with brown masses of spores known as smut balls; fishy smell; plants and heads are stunted/dwarfed. Risk factors: Contaminated seed, often from previous crop Management: Resistant cultivars, systemic fungicide seed treatment, new seed source.

Ergot of wheat and barley (Claviceps purpurea) Symptoms: Grain kernels replaced with solid purple-black mass of fungal hyphae called a sclerotia; if wet after flowering honeydew (sticky mass of fungal conidia) can be observed on infected heads. Risk factors: Contaminated seed, often from previous crop. Management: Crop rotation to non-grass crop; tillage to bury sclerotia; clean seed. Caution: Ergot is toxic to humans and animals (ergotism).

Loose smut of wheat and barley (Ustilago tritici) Symptoms: Grain kernels replaced with green-brown masses of spores covered by a thin membrane; spores disperse within days of head emergence. Risk factors: Contaminated seed, often from previous crop. Management: Resistant cultivars, systemic fungicide seed treatment, new seed source. Fusarium head blight (scab) of wheat and barley (Fusarium spp.) Symptoms: Partial bleaching of the head; brown stems on very susceptible varieties; if moist, pink/orange fungal mycelia. Risk factors: Continuous wheat or barley production, moist conditions at flowering, previous history of scab. Management: Crop rotation, cut irrigation 10 days before flowering and through the flowering period, resistant varieties, fungicides applied at or before flowering.

Black point (kernel smudge) (various fungi) Symptoms: Glumes, other tissue covered with black, sooty-appearing mold; diseased kernels are discolored, weathered, black at seed ends, embryos often shriveled and brown to black in color. Risk factors: Warm, moist weather during maturation, delayed harvest Management: None practical, avoid moisture during crop storage.

Field to table... Care and handling of game birds

By Julie Garden-Robinson, Food and Nutrition Specialist, North Dakota State University (NDSU) Extension Service, Martin Marchello, Professor, Department of Animal and Range Sciences, NDSU

Shoot for the Sky Game birds offer a challenge to hunters and the reward of a delicious meal at the table if they are handled properly at each step. Game birds have various distinctive flavors and are excellent sources of protein, similar in these respects to domestic birds. The fat and calorie contents vary according to the age and species of the birds. Wild game birds may become contaminated with bacteria or gastric juices if they are improperly handled. Off-flavors and odors may develop in the meat, and your risk of foodborne illness may increase. For optimum eating quality, remember the following handling tips during hunting, storage and food preparation. New considerations with wild game birds S o m e hunters are questioning the safety of wild game because of the possible presence of West Nile virus (WNV). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there is little evidence of the public getting WNV from handling or consuming infected birds. However, consider using the following common sense precautions: Wear latex/rubber gloves when field dressing and cleaning birds. Do NOT harvest and eat sick or abnormal acting birds. Fully cook game birds to an internal temperature of at least 165 F. Hunters exposed to mosquitoes should apply insect repellents according to label instructions to clothing and skin, too. For more information on West Nile virus, visit this Web Site: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/ dvbid/westnile/index.htm A 3½-ounce portion (before cooking) of game bird meat has about 150 calories and provides half the average daily adult protein requirement. Care in the Field and in Transport Be prepared for the hunt. Remember to bring a sharp hunting knife, a steel or whetstone, light rope or nylon cord, plastic bags, clean cloths or paper towels, and a cooler filled with ice.

Abide by game regulations for hunting, transporting and storage of wild game. Field dress the bird promptly. Remove the entrails and crop as soon as possible, because the grain in the crop may ferment if not removed. The heart and liver may be saved for giblets. Store in a plastic bag on ice to keep them clean and cold. Leave an identification mark on the bird as required by state game regulations. The birds may be plucked or skinned in the field. If you pluck the birds, bring a plastic bag for storing the feathers. Cool the carcass quickly to retain flavor and maintain the quality of the bird. A temperature above 40 degrees Fahrenheit is meat’s worst enemy. Wipe out the cavity with a clean cloth or paper towel. Do not use grass or snow as this will contaminate the carcass. Allow air to circulate in the carcass by hanging or laying the bird in a wellventilated place. In hot weather, place the birds individually in plastic bags and put on ice. Do not pile warm birds in a mass. Store the birds in a cooler or ice chest out of the sun. Keep the birds cool during transport. The best way to store birds is in a cooler on ice. If this is not possible, keep the car well ventilated and put the birds on the back seat or the floor. Do not transport them in the trunk because the enclosed space does not allow heat to escape from the birds. Care in Processing and Storage Don’t cross-contaminate during processing. Wash your hands, knife and cutting board with hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly. When preparing ducks, remove the wings by cutting them off at the joints, remove the head, and pluck out the pin feathers. Feathers may be removed by scalding the birds in hot water (145 F). Pin feathers and down may be removed by dipping the feathered bird in a paraffin wax/hot water mixture. After the wax hardens, the feathers may be scraped off. When preparing upland birds, such as grouse, pheasant, quail and partridge, skin or pluck the bird and soak in cold water for one to two hours to remove excess blood. Birds generally do not require aging.

If you wish to age birds, holding them at just above freezing temperatures for two to three days may increase the tenderness of the meat. For immediate use, birds should be stored in the refrigerator at 40 F or lower and used within three days. For long-term storage, the whole cleaned carcass or individual parts may be frozen at 0 F or lower. Freeze meat while it is fresh and in top condition. The advantage of packaging parts instead of the whole bird is that bloody spots can be eliminated by cutting out or rinsing out with cold water. Parts also fit conveniently in your freezer. Parts may be boned, and the carcass and neck may be used as a soup base. Use moisture/vapor-proof wrap such as heavily waxed freezer wrap, laminated freezer wrap, heavy duty aluminum foil or freezer-weight polyethylene bags. Wrap tightly, pressing out as much air as possible. Label the packages with the content and date. Use frozen packages within a year. Care in Preparation Thaw birds in the refrigerator or microwave. Microwave-thawed food should be cooked immediately. Other thawed meat should be used within one to two days. Keep raw food and cooked food separate. The age of the bird determines the cooking method. Wild game always should be cooked thoroughly to an internal temperature of at least 165 F. The juices should run clear and no pinkness should remain. Young birds have lighter legs, soft breastbones and flexible beaks. Old birds have darker, hard-skinned legs, brittle breastbones and inflexible beaks. Game birds may be prepared like chicken. Dry cookery methods, such as frying, are appropriate for young birds. Moist cookery methods, such as stewing or braising, are appropriate for older birds. To decrease the distinctive taste of some wild game, trim off as much of the fat as possible. Older or skinned birds may become dry during baking. You may want to wrap the birds with bacon to prevent them from drying out. Remove stuffing from the bird prior to refrigerating, because stuffing is a good growth medium for microorganisms. Use leftovers within one or two days, or freeze for later use.

Roots in my foundation

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I am hoping you can give me some guidance or your opinion on a scenario I have. I have been in my house for two years now. There are three poplar trees in the backyard that are 40 to 45 feet away from the house. One has been cut halfway down and I’m pretty sure it’s dead because it doesn’t have leaves. The other two are quite tall. One of the two doesn’t have any leaves on the top section. The other tree has full leaves. There is a downslope behind my house, so the ground level where the trees are is probably at the same height as my foundation footings. I have a few foundation cracks that were there before I moved into the house, so I don’t know how old they are. Is there any chance the roots of the trees are growing under my foundation? The soil in this area is clay. I plan to do some waterproofing work where the cracks are, so I’ll have the area exposed. I just wanted to get an idea from your experience if you’ve heard of roots being able to grow under houses and if they could cause damage. A: Roots are opportunistic, so they will grow where there is a suitable balance of water, air and nutrients. Roots will follow the movement of water through the soil profile. If I understand your question correctly, it appears that you have nothing to worry about concerning roots. However, be on the lookout for poplars this size and age because of the threat of limbs dropping off. If you do get your foundation waterproofed this summer, it will set your mind at ease for any future root penetration problems.

Decoding the QR code

Quick Response Codes (QR codes) are increasingly popular but there are lots of conflicting options and advice on whether and how to use them. “Small businesses are increasingly using QR codes in advertising efforts to entice customers,” said Chrystal Irons, business development specialist with University of Missouri Extension. QR codes are similar to barcodes, but the key difference is the amount of data they can hold. Their ability to hold more information and their ease of use makes them practical for small businesses to implement into a marketing strategy. QR codes are created with QR code generator like Kaywa, GOQR.me and Microsoft Tag. Most generators are free and allow you to upgrade to be able to analyze and track performance as well as enhance the look of the code. The second part of creating a code is to choose the link you want it to contain and customize the code design to match your brand. The third step is to make sure the code reads correctly with more than just one reader. The QR code needs to be big and clear enough for multiple smartphones. The fourth step is to track and analyze how much traffic the code generates. Have a goal When a customer scans or reads a QR code with a camera-enabled smartphone, they can link to digital content on the web; activate a number of phone functions including email, IM and SMS; and connect the mobile devise to a web browser. “Once you have a QR code you must have a goal in mind; give your customers a call to action. Be sure to reward the user for scanning your QR code by giving them a coupon, a fun fact or an incentive to return to your site,” said Irons. “Be sure to place the QR code in a location where they can easily and safely be scanned, and there is WiFi or 3G access where the code is placed.” One popular method for using QR codes is put the codes on print media like business cards and flyers. This can provide contact information and even maps with directions for company visitors. Businesses can provide special QR code coupons, access to social media options for the business or incentive programs to customers.

Building and managing super calf hutches

The practice of rearing healthy dairy calves in individual calf hutches has become a common management procedure. These units provide semi-isolation to minimize contact with disease organisms shed by older animals. When management and nutrition are at a high level, calf growth rate is excellent in hutches. Following weaning, at about eight weeks of age, however, calves outgrow hutches, and alternative group housing is necessary. There is generally a lack of suitable housing on dairy farms for calves of this age, and health problems often result from this move. The super calf hutch was developed specifically to provide housing for calves after eight weeks of age. The super calf hutch is shown with half of the front panels in the winter position and half in the summer position. The drawing also shows the location of the head gate. At left is one of the end hinged doors to be opened when the building is moved in the opposite direction to expose accumulated manure and bedding. Use a spreader bar when hitching a tractor to the skids. This will ensure a straight pull on the skids. Weaning of calves should occur two weeks prior to any grouping procedure. The super calf hutch, when it is properly located, prevents exposure of the recently weaned calves to more mature animals maintained under a wide variety of housing conditions. The capacity of this unit is eight calves to an age of approximately five months. Animals housed in this structure are exposed only to each other, thereby producing less stress and allowing a small number of calves to become acclimated to group housing. The net result is healthier calves that outperform calves reared under less desirable circumstances. Calves at this age are often placed in facilities that severely challenge their immune status after the semi-isolation of a calf hutch. These facilities may be old, unused buildings, a barn lean-to or a pole barn, and in these structures they are usually exposed to older cattle. Further, competition for feed and group status precipitates stress. The net result of this move is usually pneumonia, which often requires treatment, and some calves may die. Surviving calves usually do not perform as they should following bouts with pneumonia. The greatest loss sustained by producers, however, is later in the animal’s life. That is because surviving animals usually sustain lung damage, and they will never produce up to their genetic potential. Chronic disease severely limits genetic capability. Year-Round Use The super hutch is intended for year-round use and its design provides for sub-zero temperatures on windy days as well as on hot summer days when there is little air movement. To accommodate these variations in climate, there is a fixed opening in the space between the rafters in the front and adjustable openings in the back wall. In addition, the open front has

Reprinted from The Cattle Network hinged panels to restrict this opening under windy conditions. In winter, these panels eliminate the common problem of a north or quartering wind, which tends to whip into the building around the corners of the open front. The panels also provide protection from the south when strong winds blow into this relatively shallow open-front building. The center section of the front of this unit also has hinged doors that fold down to restrict the height of the center opening. In the rear wall there are five upward swinging ventilation doors extending the full length of the building. These doors are top-hinged specifically to minimize rain entry. Further, they are opened or adjusted whenever moderate weather indicates a need for increased air movement, and must be adjusted according to weather conditions. All rear ventilation doors must be tightly closed in winter. Movable for Cleaning The super calf hutch is a semi-portable 12 x 19-foot unit built on skids. It is of frame construction, covered with plywood, and has a shed roof. Straw or other suitable bedding material is necessary, as in the calf hutch. Hinged doors are located at the base of the end walls running the full width of the building. These doors are intended for use only when the unit is cleaned. One end door, hinged on top (hinges are fastened to the raised sill) is secured in the open position. The sills are raised so that these end openings are unobstructed. The super hutch is then pulled in the opposite direction by a tractor that is hitched to a spreader bar between the skids. The spreader bar prevents damage to the skids when moving the building. The manure pack is left in place when the building is pulled away from the pack, and it is then easily removed with a front end loader. Moving the super hutch should not be attempted when the skids are frozen in place during extremely cold winter weather. Super hutches perform well in winter. These units have been tested under severe weather conditions with temperatures ranging as low as -20° F with a wind chill of -90° F. The calves in experimental units remained in excellent health and physical condition. Feeding should never take place inside the super hutch because of calf space requirements. A further problem with inside feeding is contamination of bedding with manure and urine. During extremely windy conditions, temporary protection for the outside feed bunk may be necessary. Feeding takes place outside the super hutch in a yard formed by using movable steel gates or other portable fencing materials. The feed bunk and the water supply should be accessible to the animals through the fence. Self-feeders should not be used for animals housed in the super hutch because excessively high-concentrate feeds predispose calves to laminitis. This manifests itself later when post-partum heifers start on a lactating ration. Ideally, a concrete slab 28 x 44 feet should be con-

structed to provide a floor for the super hutch and to provide paving for the outside yard. The outside yard must be paved for permanent use to avoid mud accumulation. The area on which the super hutch rests may be covered with gravel or crushed rock, but paving is preferable. Be sure to raise the ground level on which the super hutch and outside yard are located so that rain and snowmelt water will drain away. The concrete slab on which the super hutch rests should be sloped ¼ inch per foot toward the back. The outside yard should be sloped ½ inch per foot from the front of the super hutch to the front of the slab. Fresh, clean water is essential for maximum growth and health. A good approach is to provide a single-compartment, frost-free water supply positioned at the outside center of the slab in the front of the super hutch. When placing this hydrant, it is very helpful to also provide an electrical outlet at the same location for a light source and for dehorning. Should only half the slab be constructed initially, locate the water cup and electrical outlet to serve both slabs when the pavement is completed. Feed bunks should always be placed with the slope rather than across the slope, where they can act as a dam impounding snowmelt, rain and manure runoff. Calf Restraint An important feature of the super calf hutch is the restraint unit. This provides safety for both the animal and the caretaker during various procedures that must be performed on calves. A small, wooden, adjustable head gate is built into the left front of the building. This head gate is uncovered when the horizontally hinged front panel is lifted. It is always exposed in summer because the front doors of the building are then fully open. A swinging plywood gate is attached to a front post. This is vertically hinged (with three heavy L hinges) and it forms a chute which directs the calf into the wooden head gate. The calf being examined or treated is thus firmly restrained between the gate and the outside wall. This feature prevents injury to the calf and also provides safety for the caretaker or veterinarian standing outside the gate. From the veterinarian’s standpoint the restraint feature permits safe, easy, efficient handling of animals. Early, accurate diagnosis is contingent upon adequate, safe restraint of animals. You may find one or more super calf hutches to be a practical way of providing housing after calves have outgrown individual calf hutches. These structures provide excellent housing conditions for animals up to five months of age. Succeeding moves out of the super calf hutch should be to naturally ventilated buildings of suitable design essential for animal health. This procedure permits the calves’ continued growth and development, thereby enabling the replacement animals to enter your milking herd at full genetic potential.


Personal protective equipment for farm, ranch

By University of Wyoming Extension A new University of Wyoming (UW) Extension publication offers suggestions to ranchers and farmers purchasing and using personal protective equipment. Every day, 243 agricultural workers in America suffer serious lost-work time injuries, and 5 percent of these injuries result in permanent impairment, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. “In 2010, the injury rate for agricultural workers was 20 percent higher than the rate for all workers,” said Randy Weigel, UW Extension human development specialist. “Many farm and ranch injuries could be prevented or their impacts reduced if they wore proper personal protective equipment (PPE).” The “Solutions for Living: Personal Protective Equipment for Agriculture” bulletin, B-1233, outlines considerations for purchasing and using PPE. The bulletin can be accessed free at http://bit.ly/SW9JT6. “In addition, OSHA has set general standards for PPE equipment,” said Weigel. “These standards are applicable to ranchers, farmers and agricultural workers. Finally, in using pesticides, read the label. It provides information on the correct PPE to be used for that specific chemical.” PPE is designed to protect many parts of the body including eyes, head, face, hands, feet, ears and torso. Pesticides and liquid chemicals, falling objects, loud machinery and equipment, temperature extremes, welding sparks, electrical hazards, particulates and vapors are some of the primary hazards ranchers and farmers face daily, Weigel said. PPE does not prevent accidents – but they can prevent or lessen injuries or deaths when used and worn properly, he said. “Protective equipment must be carefully selected,” said Weigel. “Test fit the protective equipment to be sure of a proper and comfortable fit. If it isn’t comfortable, it won’t be worn; if it isn’t worn, it won’t protect.” For more information about PPE or Wyoming AgrAbility, email Weigel at weig@uwyo.edu or visit www.uwyo.edu/ agrability.

Cactus identification

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I am having a problem with my cactus. When researching for answers, I came across your email address, so I’m hoping you can help me. I’m struggling to identify the cactus. The closest image I’ve seen is of a cereus peruvians, but the spines are very different. They grow individually, not in clusters. They are very dark near the stem and a golden brown toward the end. When I got it, they were all like this, but then some started turning red at the very top and the green was a much paler shade. These spines were bendy and broke off easily, not hard and sharp like the others. I was told that it needed more sun, so when we had some nice days, I put it outside for a few hours. However, I think I may have left it outside too long. It has now lost color near the top of the stems and they are a slightly brown. One stem has gone partially black and shiny. What should I do with it? I didn’t get any care instructions with it, so I don’t know if I’m watering it right or anything. A: Can you bring yourself to part with it? First of all, I don’t know the variety you are attempting to describe, and the symptoms you describe also leave me clueless. I’m sorry I cannot help you at this point. I suggest getting rid of the plant and starting new with something that is properly labeled and has directions on how to care for it. #####   Church News: For Easter services, we will ask Mrs. Brown to come forward and lay an egg on the altar.

Emerald lustre tree

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I have a question about my emerald lustre tree. I planted the semimature tree three years ago. The first year, it looked beautiful and full. Last year, it had less foliage, and it is struggling again this year. I have noticed that there is a white mushroomlike fungus on the bark. I have clay soil, but topsoil was added when the tree was planted. We purchased and planted another emerald lustre that is doing fine. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to help this poor tree? It is a beautiful tree, so I would hate to lose it. (Minneapolis, Minnesota) A: When you say semimature, do you mean that someone came in and planted it using a tree spade or was it put in by hand? Was it balled in burlap? Was the tree in a container that you and someone else could handle and plant yourselves? The reason I’m asking is because this is the usual pattern of tree decline that follows when too much of a root system is left behind when a semimature tree is planted. For the most part, the decline is not reversible. Usually, the owner finally gives up and has it removed. Planting a tree with as much of the root system intact as is the best approach. Many large nurseries will move trees that have been root-pruned carefully through the years before they get moved to a permanent location. This gives the tree a chance to develop a nice compact root mass that cuts the chance of a planting failure almost down to zero.

UW Extension vehicle will run on compressed natural gas, gasoline University of Wyoming (UW) Extension has received a $13,000 grant from Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc. to convert a 2012 Ford F-150 to a bi-fuel vehicle, which uses compressed natural gas (CNG) or gasoline. “Natural gas used for transportation is clean – producing less emissions than gasoline – is safe and reliable, is largely abundant and at current prices CNG costs up to $2 less per gallon than gasoline,” said Randy Teeuwen, Encana USA community relations advisor. “And, they have the same mileage and power as gas vehicles.” He said Encana has converted 14 percent of its Wyoming fleet to CNG, with plans to convert it entirely within about three years. “We are focused on supporting natural gas as a transportation fuel of choice, and we are happy to provide this conversion for UW Extension,” he said. The vehicle, owned by extension, will

be used by an associate director and be visible statewide but will spend the most time around Laramie, along the I-80 corridor, in western Wyoming such as Sweetwater, Fremont, Big Horn counties and areas east of the Idaho/Utah border, said Glen Whipple, director of UW Extension. “Natural gas is a plentiful fuel with great potential to reduce the nation’s reliance on imported oil,” said Whipple. “It makes sense that Wyoming, a state where natural gas production is a critical economic contributor, would be a leader in the use of CNG as a motor fuel.” UW Extension has offices staffed with educators and specialists on the UW campus, in all 23 Wyoming counties and the Wind River Indian Reservation, all who do a significant amount of travel, said Whipple. Extension maintains a fleet of 31 trucks,

Guide to common root and crown diseases of cereal crops in Montana

Trader’s Dispatch, January 2013— Page B24

Dr. Mary Burrows, Extension Plant Pathology Specialist, Montana State University

Damping off (Pythium, Fusarium, Rhizoctonia and other fungi) Symptoms: Small, yellow plants; reduced emergence; plants emerge then die Risk Factors: Continuous crop production, cool soil temperatures, moist soil; lack of seed treatment Management: Fungicide seed treatment. Use a mix of chemistries to target both oomycetes such as Pythium (metalaxyl or mefanoxam) and fungi such as Fusarium and Rhizoctonia

Root rot (Pythium, Fusarium, other fungi) Symptoms: Small, yellow plants; smaller root mass than healthy plants; brown roots; outer root cortex easily peels off, leaving the inner stele (vascular system) of the root Risk factors: Continuous crop production, cool soil temperatures, moist soil and continued cool temperatures during early crop growth; lack of seed treatment at planting Management: Seed treatments are effective for 2-3 weeks after planting. Rhizoctonia root rot (bare patch) (Rhizoctonia solani) Symptoms: Similar to damping off and dry seed decay; Spear-tipping of roots when they are washed (tapered, dark brown or black root tips) Risk factors: Continuous cereal crop production, spraying glyphosate on volunteer and grassy weeds and planting seed within a few days Management: Variety selection; soil pH modification with potash is limited in effectiveness

Dry seed decay (Penicillum, Aspergillus and other fungi) Symptoms: Seeds may decay in the soil or seedlings may become blighted and killed below the soil surface. Stands are thin and uneven or lacking plants in small to large areas. Seeds may be covered with green or white fungal mycelia, soil may stick to seeds Risk factors: Planting into dry soil with no moisture for 2-3 weeks after planting; lack of seed treatment Management: Fungicide seed treatment.

Cephalosporium stripe (Cephalosporium tritici) of winter wheat Symptoms: Dwarfed plants with one or two continuous yellow stripes on the leaf; nodes on stem may be darkened; white heads at maturity Risk factors: Continuous winter wheat cropping; freeze-thaw cycles which allow the fungus to enter the roots; early seeding Management: Variety selection, crop rotation, delayed planting, tillage

Sharp eyespot (Rhizoctonia cerealis) Symptoms: Lesions on crown elongated eyeshape; dark halo surrounding tan center; white heads at maturity; lodging; infects through leaf sheath, lesions often start on external leaf sheath and expand into center of stem, girdling plant Risk factors: Continuous cereals; no-till with crop residue, moist, cool weather Management: Crop rotation, variety selection, irrigation management to reduce humidity in the canopy, light tillage to reduce residue, and fungicide application.

Fusarium crown rot (Fusarium spp.) Symptoms: Brown discoloration of subcrown internode and first two nodes of the crown, white heads at maturity Risk factors: Continuous wheat production; no-till with wheat crop residue, high nitrogen, soil moisture fluctuations Management: Crop rotation, variety selection, proper fertilization, irrigation management to maintain continuous moisture, light tillage to reduce residue where applicable

Take-all (Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici) Symptoms: Solid or streaked ‘obsidian’ black discoloration of first one or two nodes of the crown, black discoloration of subcrown internode; white heads at maturity Risk factors: Continuous wheat production (although after many years of continuous wheat there may be take all decline, a reduction in disease); no-till with wheat crop residue, high soil pH, nutritional stress Management: Crop rotation, variety selection, proper fertilization, grassy weeds control, light tillage to reduce residue where applicable

Snow mold (Typhula, Microdochium) Symptoms: Speckled snow mold (Typhula): leaves are bleached white/ tan, small dark fungal structures (sclerotia) scattered; Pink snow mold (Microdochium): pink fungal structures (mycelium, conidia) on yellow or dying leaves Risk factors: Prolonged deep snow Management: Crop rotation, early seeding to develop larger, more tolerant plants

Eyespot/strawbreaker foot rot (Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides) Symptoms: Lesions on crown elongated eyeshape; dark halo surrounding brown center; white heads at maturity; lodging; infects through leaf sheath, lesions often start on external leaf sheath and expand into center of stem, girdling plant Risk factors: Continuous cereals; no-till with crop residue, moist, cool weather Management: Crop rotation, variety selection, irrigation management to reduce humidity in the canopy, light tillage to reduce residue, and fungicide application

Common root rot (Cochliobolus sativus) Symptoms: Brown to black, often ‘streaky’ discoloration of first one or two nodes of the crown, dark brown spots on subcrown internode; white heads at maturity Risk factors: Continuous wheat production; no-till with wheat crop residue, high nitrogen, soil moisture fluctuations Management: Crop rotation, variety selection, proper fertilization, irrigation management to maintain continuous moisture, light tillage to reduce residue where applicable


Keeping the squirrels away

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: Squirrels have eaten our sweet corn and chewed on our melons, squash, cucumbers and tomatoes. We’ve tried trapping, anti-animal sprays and shooting them. However, there always seem to be more of them. Do you have any ideas on how to protect future gardens? We’ve had gardens for 30 years and not had this problem. A: Squirrels are a problem when it comes to trying to keep garden produce. Once they discover the bounty of your garden, they get the word out. At that point, it usually turns out to be a losing battle. Exclusion fences are about the only answer. Fences are only effective if there are no tree branches hanging over the garden. What my wife and I have found that works for us is to make a source of food readily available to them on a consistent basis. She makes suet blocks using cheap peanut butter, sunflower seeds and apple bits. She hangs a block from a tree to allow for easy access. We think it is the combination of fat, peanut butter, seeds and fruit that attracts them, so they pretty much leave our garden produce alone. Visit a farm supply store and purchase some field corn still on the cob and hang it from a tree branch. They also will go after the corn. None of this is foolproof, and you have to keep changing tactics a little at a time. If any readers of this column have better or more effective solutions, I’ll pass them on.

SUVs and sedans. “The conversion will allow us to test and evaluate the possible cost savings and efficiencies for CNG-capable vehicles in our fleet,” said Whipple. “With CNG fueling stations either in service or planned throughout Wyoming in the near future, the time is right to put a CNG-capable vehicle in service.” Recently, Encana USA opened a CNG station in Riverton at the Pit Stop on South Federal Boulevard and the Pinedale station is in use with a grand opening slated for early November, according to Encana. Fueling infrastructures are also planned to open in Rock Springs later this month, and the Wyoming Legislature approved a station for Laramie to open in 2013.

Just because that chicken has already thawed without being cooked doesn’t mean it needs to be thrown out.
 Contrary to popular belief, thawed food can be refrozen in some cases, said Julie Albrecht, University of NebraskaLincoln Extension food specialist. Food thawed in the refrigerator is safe to move back to the freezer, Albrecht said. On the other hand, foods thawed in cool water or the microwave are susceptible to bacteria and should be cooked immediately. Even more dangerous is leaving food to thaw on the kitchen counter because microorganisms grow between 40 and 140 degrees. “The inside could still be frozen, but you’re encouraging microorganism growth on the outside,” she said. Re-freezing food is the subject of one of four food safety myths from the Partnership for Food Safety Education (http://fightbac.org). The organization debunks these myths this September as part of National Food Safety Education Month. Another of the myths they address says that bagged lettuce should be washed to rid it of bacteria. However, packaged greens labeled “ready-to-eat” or “washed” have already been cleaned and rinsing them actually can expose them to contamination. “They’ve already been cleaned,” Albrecht said. “And you’re giving them one more handling.” In the case of pre-washed greens, it’s enough to use clean cutting boards, utensils and countertops. Another myth is that microwaves kill the bacteria in food. In reality, the microwaves don’t kill bacteria; the heat does. Microwave ovens cook food unevenly, leaving cold spots and the risk of foodborne illness. Following package instructions carefully and checking microwaved food with a food thermometer can prevent these illnesses, Albrecht said. Microwaves only kill bacteria when the food is heated to a safe temperature. Ground meat is done at 160 degrees, poultry at 165 and fish at 145. Steaks should be cooked to a minimum of 145 degrees, according to the PFSE website. “In fact, it’s important to check all food with a food thermometer before eating it,” Albrecht said. The final myth is that looking at food or checking the temperature with a finger can indicate its doneness. “Some hamburgers look like they’re done when they’re not done,” Albrecht said. “You have to make sure to kill microorganisms and not look for whether it’s not pink inside, or juices are clear.” Again, using a food thermometer is the only way to know for sure that food is cooked properly. Even if the outside appears done, the inside may still have cold spots, which can’t be detected by appearance or touch and might contain bacteria. Food thermometers should be cleaned with soap and water after each use.

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: We have many oak trees. We just noticed that there are dozens of whitish balls on the trees ranging from the size of acorns to golf-ball size. When we open them, they are a red or pink inside and smell sweet like fruit. However, there is always a small worm in the middle. Any ideas about what the problem is and what we should do? (Texas) A: Oaks are notorious for attracting gall-making insects and mites. What you are seeing could be oak apple, jumping oak leaf or red pea galls. There are other possibilities. These galls are mostly initiated at the leaf bud unfolding stage when a very small wasp or mite stings the developing leaf and deposits an egg or two within the opening. The hormonal action from the developing larvae causes plant cell proliferation that provides protection and nourishment to the developing insect/mite. Control measures are not necessary or recommended because any application of insecticides after the galls are noted would be the equivalent to closing the barn door after the cows got out. Also, spraying early in the spring would be a timing challenge. Generally, where a heavy gall infestation is noted, predators find them and do the job of keeping the pests under control. Other than cosmetic appearances, these galls do not seriously harm the trees. Consider the galls a biological curiosity.

First time rare human parasite found in U.S. horse

A rare, potentially fatal species of parasite never before found in North America has been identified in a Florida horse. University of Florida (UF) veterinarians identified the parasite, called Leishmania siamensis, in summer 2011. This particular species of parasite previously had been found only in Thailand and parts of Europe. No Leishmania infections of any species had been previously reported in a horse native to the United States. The UF discovery raises awareness of how widespread the parasite is and suggests a need for watchfulness regarding potential transmission to humans, the researchers said. “We now know the parasites that cause this disease also exist here in the U.S. and that we have some insect, presumably the sandfly, that is capable of transmitting the disease,” said Sarah Reuss, a clinical assistant professor of large animal medicine at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine. Reuss, UF colleagues and a private practice clinical pathologist described the findings in the September issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases, a journal of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Our findings raise several potential avenues of further investigation, including the prevalence of this disease in horses in the U.S., a better understanding of the sandfly life cycle and the potential of this leishmaniasis species to be transmitted from animals to humans,” Reuss said. Leishmaniasis is a parasitic infection spread through the bites of infected sandflies. The disease shows up most commonly in two forms: cutaneous, which causes sores on the skin and is self-healing; and visceral, the most severe form, which affects the entire body and is almost always fatal if left untreated. After malaria, leishmaniasis is the leading parasitic cause of death in humans. The disease has been found in four continents and is considered to be endemic in 88 countries, including 16 developed nations, according to the World Health Organization. The WHO estimates the worldwide prevalence at 12 million cases, with about 350 million people at risk of infection and about 60,000 people dying from the disease each year. Leishmaniasis is rare in people in the U.S. “It really hasn’t been a disease that has affected Americans, but there are really good data with climate change models that predict sandfly ranges will expand, making this disease much more of a threat because of global warming,” said co-author James Wellehan Jr., a veterinarian from the UF research team, who confirmed the presence of the disease in the Florida horse by analyzing the genes of the parasite. The visceral form of leishmaniasis is endemic in foxhounds in the U.S, associated with a parasite species different from the one found in the Florida horse. But aside from some regional transmission in the Southwest, most of the leishmaniasis skin infection cases in the U.S. are believed to have occurred in animals brought in from countries where the disease is common, or in people who had recently spent time in those countries. “Thousands of people serving in the U.S. military have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan with cutaneous or visceral leishmaniasis,” said Christine Petersen, an associate professor of veterinary pathology at Iowa State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and an expert on Leishmania transmission, immune responses and veterinary disease, who was not involved in the study. “In a few cases, these individuals have brought dogs back with them that also have leishmaniasis.” But the horse diagnosed at UF had no history of travel outside of the eastern U.S. The pregnant 10-year-old Morgan mare was treated as an outpatient at the University of Florida Large Animal Hospital for sores inside her left ear. A biopsy done in the field revealed what looked like the rare parasite within inflammatory cells in the tissue. Further tissue sampling and genetic analysis were used to confirm the identity of the disease-causing organism. Often, leishmaniasis of the skin will resolve without medical treatment. But the mare’s sores worsened over time — a development the veterinarians attributed to the pregnancy. “Many of the horses in other countries that have been diagnosed with leishmaniasis were pregnant, so we think perhaps these horses have pregnancy-altered immune systems and are therefore more vulnerable to the disease,” Reuss said. The drug used to treat horses with the disease in other parts of the world isn’t readily available in the U.S., and surgery wasn’t an option because the sores were inside the horse’s ear. After treatment with anti-fungal drugs, the sores eventually regressed. Continued on page C4

First time rare human parasite found in U.S. horse continued from page c1

Horses housed at home with the affected horse did not show any signs of illness. Though the disease needs the blood-sucking sandfly as a carrier and does not pass directly among horses or between horses and humans, veterinary experts say the discovery of the new parasitic species in the U.S. is cause for increased vigilance. “As a disease of animals capable of being transmitted to humans, leishmaniasis requires more attention to ensure we do not have vector-borne transmission within larger areas of the country,” Petersen said.

UW professor receives national excellence in teaching award By University of Wyoming Extension

A family and consumer sciences professor at the University of Wyoming (UW) has been recognized for excellence in teaching and service to students. Karen Williams in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is one of six regional recipients of the Excellence in College and University Teaching in the Food and Agricultural Sciences Award from the USDA Association of Public and Landgrant Universities (APLU). Williams received the award during the national APLU meeting Sunday, November 11, in Denver from Catherine Woteki, chief scientist and under secretary for USDA’s Research, Education, and Economics. “This award is a great honor, but it is really a recognition of our college, its support for teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning, and of our students,” said Williams. “I learn more from the children I work with and the college students I’m privileged to teach than they learn from me. I have the best job in the world.” Frank Galey, dean of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Donna Brown, associate dean and director of the Office of Academic and Student Programs in the college, accompanied Williams. Brown, one of the nominators, was head of family and consumer sciences when Williams was recommended. Sonny Ramaswamy, director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, made announcements about each of the award winners. Recipients are evaluated on classroom teaching ability, use of innovate teaching methods, service to students and professionalism and scholarship. “It’s really a nice honor – a tremendous honor,” said Galey. “Her innovation in the classroom and in the curriculum has been fantastic. She is a leader campus-wide in

assessment and outreach education. Her online offerings and ability to navigate the online education in this state have really helped lead our outreach programs.” Brown noted William’s leadership within the department and across the UW campus in teaching and assessing students for critical and creative thinking, professional skills and behaviors and global and multicultural awareness. “Karen spearheaded the department’s early focus on student competencies and assessment resulting in the strategies that are considered the model on the UW campus, including the use of electronic portfolios for assessment purposes,” noted Brown. Brown said Williams was instrumental in developing several degree programs and options on the UW campus, including the distance degree option in professional child development. Williams also helped develop and now directs the college’s distance Bachelor of Applied Science degree program. Williams joined UW in 1993 as an instructor in the College of Education. She became an assistant professor in 1995 in family and consumer sciences, an associate professor in 2001 and professor in 2006. She was head of the department from 2005 to 2010.

Keeping spruce trees healthy

Dura-Life

On Farm Fuel Containment Systems Custom designed to fit your needs to conform to the SPCC requirement

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I have two spruce questions you may be able to help with. I planted a hoopsi spruce in 2007. Five years later, it’s at least 15 feet tall and just gorgeous. However, its lowest branches are on the ground, so I’m concerned that their periodic contact with wet ground puts them at risk for disease. Should I prune off these ground-level branches or is contact with the ground not a problem? I also have a hoopsi that I planted last year. This spring, it was attacked by bagworms. After I noticed the problem, I sprayed with an insecticide that killed off the bagworms. The defoliation hadn’t advanced too far. A few of the branches in the tree’s upper third were stripped bare, but most still showed about 50 percent healthy needles. The other 50 percent of the needles are turning brown. I’m wondering if these partially browned branches are viable. Will they continue to grow outward and eventually sprout new needles or should I assume these branches will die or become stunted? I’m not concerned about the needles that have been lost because the affected areas are close to the trunk. In a few years, those areas close to the trunk will be closed off from sunlight and lose their needles naturally. A: I’ve heard from just about every state in the country except West Virginia. In another life, I used to travel all over your state as a salesman selling horticultural products. I would advise removing the lower branches to a point where you are satisfied and that good circulation can be provided. Some spruce purists consider such action an abomination of a perfectly symmetrical spruce tree. I think trees in a landscape situation need management pruning in this manner without destroying the symmetry of the tree. It certainly is a step in the right direction as far as disease and rodent protection goes. The other tree should recover from the ravages of bagworm damage. It is a credit to you for being alert enough to catch them early so that you could keep the tree from being totally decimated. Monitor it carefully in future years for their possible return.

Lost and found department

By Bruce Auchly, FWP Region 4 Information Officer A couple of weeks ago, I went hunting and found a cow elk call. This was not a cheap piece of plastic. It’s a hand-held call adjustable to imitate a basic mew, a lost cow and a cow in estrus, or heat. Most people who spend enough time outdoors find stuff. We also lose stuff. If personal experience is any indication, we lose way more than we find. But sometimes what we gain in our loss is worth more. The elk call I found, depending on the store, runs about $25. Over the years, I’ve also found a pocket knife, probably worth $20, a wedding ring, and a revolver. And a pocket full of fishing lures. The wedding ring still sits in my desk drawer. In 2001, while hiking in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, I looked down at my feet (always a good choice to keep from tripping) and saw something gleam. An ad in the paper, a phone call to the Forest Service and an email to the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation failed to turn up a claim. It’s worth? A few dollars at a pawn shop. It’s probably priceless to the owner. Or maybe worthless, depending if the ring was lost or tossed. The revolver was eventually returned to its owner, so no reason to calculate its worth. Still, I probably banked some good karma. And the fishing lures? Less than $20, maybe less than $10. People who fish seem to lose and find more stuff than hunters. Maybe it’s because as anglers we expect to lose things. Everyone has caught and broke lines on brush; snagged hooks, flies and lures on rocks; left equipment and clothing on some distant shore. I once lost a watch and a pair of eyeglasses on a short float trip. Whew. Warm weather typically associated with fishing seems to minimize the loss; a big difference from the winter weather of hunting season. Lose a spare jacket on a summer day? No problema. Lose a jacket while hunting in subzero weather? Problema grande. As for the debit side of the ledger of things I’ve lost while hunting: A nice folding knife, a folding saw, a jacket, a headlamp. The folding knife was a good one, worth about $40, but I don’t miss it. I’ve since become a proponent of fixed blade, drop-point knives for field dressing game. A lesson learned at a reasonable cost. Loss of the folding saw, used for cutting open a rib cage, was fine by me. It’s resting on a hillside under a spike elk’s rib cage. Good trade. The jacket, apparently snatched by a branch because I didn’t have it secured to my pack, was a terrible loss. Made of some space age material, it held up to the claim of windproof and waterproof. Replacement value: maybe $100. Still, I spent a wonderful day with a good friend. The headlamp cost about $20. I also shot a cow elk that day. Another trade I’d take any day. The point is if you don’t go out, you won’t lose anything. And you will lose stuff. But you’ll never gain the memories, which are invaluable.

Tomato hornworms

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: Can you tell me if tomato hornworms are a pest or only an occasional problem? They have stripped the tops of my tomatoes. However, I don’t want to kill them as I think the hawk moth they become is rather rare. Please let me know as soon as possible because I am stripping other stems and leaves to feed my charges while I wait for your answer. The hornworms are on six plants and I hope that is where they remain. It feels great to have them, though. We rarely use any pesticides, so the weeds and bugs are pretty healthy. Do you know if tomato hornworms are endangered? It seems they were treated as a bad bug when I was a kid. Of course, the garden could be the difference between food in the cellar or less food. A: Tomato hornworms are just occasional pests and shouldn’t be killed. Allow them to feed and go into their far more attractive and entertaining adult stage. If they are an endangered species, it certainly isn’t evident here in Fargo or anywhere else that I’ve heard. Yes, the caterpillars are gross to look at, but they grow up to be beautiful adult moths. You could always plant an alternate crop, such as tobacco, for them to munch on and still have your tomatoes. I have only seen about three or four at a time in a typical garden setting.

Prairie roses

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I have two prairie roses in the backyard that have survived mowing, building and dirt piles. I want to replant them to a flower bed where they deserve to be after all these years. How do I transplant the roses? I won’t even categorize myself as a novice at gardening because I’m more of a dabbler. Your assistance will be appreciated. (Bismarck, North Dakota) A: Hearing what these plants have gone through, I’d say your chances are right up there for success. You sound adventuresome, so give it a shot. Cut the bushes back to a manageable size. Dig the holes where you want to move the plants. Dig out the plants in the cool of an evening when rain is in the forecast. Take as much of the root ball as you can handle. Place the rose bushes at the same depth into the new holes and water well. Monitor and water as needed during the next two to three weeks. By then, the roots should be established and can pretty much fend for themselves for water and nutrients unless an extended drought and high temperatures show up. Give them a shot of Miracle-Gro at transplanting, 30 days later and around the Labor Day weekend.

Peony did not come up

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: Our peony of 20 years never came up this year. We fertilize with 10-10-10 about every four months and water when needed. We live in southeastern Michigan. What could have happened to our plant, and how do we protect our other plants? Thank you for any information you can give us. A: It is hard to say what happened to your peony. My best guess is that little or no snow cover, along with rising and then falling temperatures in late February or March, killed the plant. Well-established peonies usually will outlive the property owner several times over.

Wheat Commission representatives elections

Wheat producers from southeast and northwest North Dakota will be electing county representatives to the North Dakota Wheat Commission for the 2013 to 2017 term during the next few months. These county elections are the first step in selecting the leadership of the wheat commission. District elections will follow, with one of the county reps being selected to serve as a Commissioner. The Commission is comprised of seven members, six elected through District elections and one appointed by the governor. Commissioners shape the policies and priorities of the NDWC, and establish the annual budget for check-off funded activities that primarily focus on research, export marketing, policy and domestic promotion activities. District 2, in northwest North Dakota includes the following counties: Burke, Divide, McKenzie, Renville, Ward and Williams. District 5, in southeast North Dakota is comprised of: Barnes, Cass, Dickey, Griggs, LaMoure, Ransom, Richland, Sargent, Steele and Traill. Any person who is a resident of the county and actively involved in the production of wheat is eligible to participate in the election for their respective county. The official term of office is July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2017.

Some of the updated election schedules and results to date are as follow. All times listed are local. District 2 January 18 - Renville County, 10:30 a.m., MLS School, Mohall January 29 - Divide County, 1:30 p.m., Courthouse, Farmers Room, Crosby February 5 - Williams County, 12:00, noon, Airport International Inn, Williston March 26 - District Election, Mountrail County Extension Bldg., Stanley Elections have been completed in McKenzie County, Howdy Lawlar, and Watford City. District 5 February 5 - Ransom County, 12:00, noon, Expo Center, Lisbon March 21 - District Election, Eagles Club, Valley City Election have been completed in Richland and Cass county. NDSU county extension agents conduct the elections. Notices of the exact time and location of each election are published in the county’s official newspaper, and may also be posted in county extension updates as well as flyers at area businesses in the county. Updates in the election schedule will also be posted on the North Dakota Wheat Commission’s website at www.ndwheat.com.

Spraying insecticide? There’s an app for that

By Dennis O’Brien, Agricultural Research Service U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists have released two mobile phone applications, or “apps,” to make things easier for anyone who needs to adjust insecticide spray equipment. The apps were developed by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists Bradley Fritz and Wesley “Clint” Hoffmann at the agency’s Areawide Pest Management Research Unit in College Station, Texas. The apps are designed to ensure that aerial and ground-based crews can hit targets and minimize pesticide drift by keying in specifics on the type of equipment and pesticide they are using. ARS is USDA’s principal intramural scientific research agency, and the research supports the USDA goal of promoting agricultural sustainability. With dozens of manufacturers producing dozens of different types of spray technology—each with its own nozzle type, flow rate, and pressure setting range—the equipment setup can get pretty complicated. Aerial sprayers also must factor in wind speed, air temperature, flight speed and humidity. The apps incorporate the latest science of spray technology, including “spray nozzle atomization” models developed by ARS at College Station. They can be used with a smartphone and accessed right from a field or the cabin of a small aircraft. More than half of all aerial applicators responding to a survey by the National Agricultural Aviation Association reported using smartphones. Data also can be saved for later use and e-mailed to colleagues. One app is designed for ground-based spraying for mosquitoes and other threats to public health. It covers 60 different sprayers made by 19 manufacturers and was developed jointly with the Department of Defense’s Navy Entomology Center of Excellence in Jacksonville, Florida. The user selects the appropriate sprayer and is guided through the process of selecting specific operational settings, such as the nozzle type, flow rate and spray pressure setting. The other app, for aerial spraying, walks users through the process of adjusting nozzles and settings so pesticides are delivered at optimal droplet sizes. Droplet size is critical in aerial operations to ensure “on-target deposition” and minimize pesticide drift. The user specifies the nozzle manufacturer from a menu and is steered through a series of screens and prompts that, based on the specific operating conditions, helps him or her select the right size of the nozzle opening, spray pressure, nozzle orientation and airspeed. The apps are available online through the Apple iTunes App Store and the Google Play Android Marketplace by searching for “Aerial Sprays” for the aerial application app and “Vector Sprays” for the ground-based sprayer app.

Better tools for saving water and keeping peaches healthy

By Dennis O’Brien, Agricultural Research Service Peach growers in California may soon have better tools for saving water because of work by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists in Parlier, California. Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientist Dong Wang is evaluating whether infrared sensors and thermal technology can help peach growers decide precisely when to irrigate in California’s San Joaquin Valley. ARS is USDA’s principal intramural scientific research agency, and the research supports the USDA priority of promoting international food security. Irrigation is the primary source of water for agriculture in the valley during the summer, and wells have been forced to reach deeper to bring up enough water to meet increasing demands. Peaches also require much of their water from June through September, when temperatures and demands for water are at their highest. Wang and Jim Gartung, an ARS agricultural engineer, installed 12 infrared temperature sensors in peach orchards at the San Joaquin Valley Agricultural Sciences Center in Parlier and gave trees one of four irrigation treatments: applying furrow or subsurface drip irrigation, with or without postharvest water stress. They also measured crop yields and assessed the quality of the fruit to compare the output of trees grown under deficit irrigation with trees grown under normal conditions. Deficit irrigation has been used to produce some varieties of grapes and has been studied for its potential in fruit tree and row crop production. But it has yet to be widely adopted, in part because growers need better tools to strike a balance between saving water and keeping crops viable and healthy, according to Wang. They used the sensors to measure temperatures in the tree canopies, and calculated a “crop water stress index” based on the differences between tree canopy temperatures and the surrounding air temperatures. Higher index numbers indicated more stressed trees. The researchers found that midday canopy-to-air temperature differences in trees that were water-stressed postharvest were in the 10- to 15-degree Fahrenheit range, consistently higher than the 3- to 4-degree Fahrenheit range in the trees that were not water-stressed. For comparison purposes, the researchers placed leaves from stressed and non-stressed trees in a pressure chamber and measured the pressure required to squeeze water out of them. When the trees are water-stressed, it takes more pressure to squeeze moisture from them. The results, published in Agricultural Water Management, show that the pressure chamber results were consistent with data collected by the infrared sensors, which means the sensors may be an effective tool for managing water use in peach orchards.

Problems growing corn

By Ron Smith, Horticulturist, NDSU Extension Service Q: I came across your website while I was doing some research on growing sweet corn. I have had success in the past, but the last two years, the tassels have sprouted and pollinated long before any of the ears even have started to grow. As a result, I get no corn. Do you know what causes this to happen and how I can prevent it or possibly get corn from my crop this year? A: Your question is a stumper! I never have had that problem in almost 50 years of growing sweet corn. I forwarded a copy of your question to Marcelo Carena, our NDSU corn breeder. Here is his response to your problem: The main problem you have is the hybrid you purchased. If you had this problem last year, then change the hybrid and request one that better supports drought and heat. Even though you water the corn, the stress from drought and heat this year is so intense that it caused a delay between pollen and silk emergence. This is the first symptom we use to discard drought-susceptible corn. My advice for this year is to continue watering until maturity. There is nothing else you can do with this hybrid except to keep watering the plants during the grain-filling period (the grains that were able to be pollinated). This period is the second (after flowering) most sensitive to drought. My advice for next year is to avoid planting this particular hybrid and request that the company provide you with hybrids that are drought- and heat-tolerant.

Williams County, Williston continue to grow

By NDSU Extension Service The city of Williston and Williams County will continue to grow for at least the next five years, according to a study by Nancy Hodur and Dean Bangsund, researchers in the Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department at North Dakota State University (NDSU). “Because of the oil boom, things are changing so fast that cities such as Williston need an estimate of population growth to try to gauge their response for housing, public services and infrastructure,” Hodur says. “The nature of the workforce also makes projecting population difficult. The census does not capture what we refer to as the service population, which is the people that work in North Dakota but live elsewhere.” The census population for Williston in 2010 was 14,716, with the current service population (permanent and temporary) of Williston at 25,000 to 33,000. The service population of Williams County is estimated to be 49,000 to 51,000. Hodur and Bangsund estimate the population potential for Williston to be 40,000 to 44,000 by 2017. Meanwhile, the population potential of Williams County could go as high as 70,000, which is more than double the 2010 census of 22,398. Hodur and Bangsund used two different methods to predict future population growth. “The employment model is based on regional employment projections that looked at various growth scenarios in the oil and gas industry,” Bangsund says. “We also used a housing model to estimate population growth. We identified what has been built and what may be built in the near term to estimate population growth based on potential housing build-out.” The housing and employment models ended up being within a range of 5 percent of each other. Temporary jobs, such as those associated with construction, drilling and fracking, may begin to decline around 2022, Hodur says. The study confirms that housing will continue to be a key issue in western North Dakota and that temporary lodging will remain an important part of the solution. “To maintain a good handle on future population growth, the build-out data should be maintained on an ongoing basis because of possible future changes in oil field development,” Hodur says.

OSU aims to spice up rice with thiamine

By Oregon State University Oregon State University (OSU) aims to create rice with higher levels of vitamin B1 to make it more nutritious and at the same time, resistant to two crop-damaging diseases. If the efforts are successful, it could mean higher yields for rice producers and a reduced use of pesticides. Research shows vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, can boost the immune system of plants, including rice, cucumbers and tobacco. OSU’s researchers are hoping that sustained accumulation of thiamine can make rice immune to bacterial leaf blight and rice blast, which cause significant yield losses in Southeast Asia, the world’s top rice-growing region. “Literature suggests that if we boost vitamin B1 we may be able to enhance resistance to diseases most harmful to rice,” said Aymeric Goyer, a plant biologist and research assistant professor at OSU. At OSU’s Hermiston Agricultural Research and Extension Center, Goyer will grow rice that overexpresses genes that synthesize vitamin B1. Within 10 to 12 months, he’ll see if the leaves contain higher-than-normal amounts of vitamin B1 and if the plants resist diseases. Goyer will also see if the rice grain itself contains more thiamine, which is present only in low amounts in white rice. In areas of the world where white rice is the cornerstone of most diets, thiamine deficiencies are common. Thiamine helps create acids for digestion, supports carbohydrate metabolism and is essential for the overall health of the nervous system. “We have the potential to make more nutritious rice while helping improve yields and find an alternative to pesticides,” said Goyer. The research is funded by Grand Challenges Explorations, an initiative of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Pamela Ronald from the University of California, Davis is a collaborator with Goyer on the grant.

Montana Cattlemen’s Association annual meeting

By Mark Boone, President, Montana Cattlemen’s Association On Saturday, December 1 Montana Cattlemen’s Association had its 11th Annual Cattlemen’s Day and membership meeting at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center in Billings, Montana. It was well attended with ranchers from all over the state meeting together for informative seminars and discussion of issues. Cattlemen’s Day started with a Worker’s Compensation Safety seminar put on by Les Graham. Those attending were eligible for a 4% discount on worker’s compensation premiums. As MCA member Gary Taylor put it, “The safety of our employees and family members working on the ranch is a priority and the discount is a nice bonus”. During lunch a presentation was put on by the Montana Historical Society’s Zoe Ann Stoltz on the history of brands in Montana. John Cosgriff, MCA Vice-president, was interested to learn that one of his family brands was one of the first brands registered in Montana in 1873. After lunch Montana Department Agriculture visited with the group on the Growth Through Agriculture and Beginning Farmer and Rancher Loan programs. Cole Mannix from SOTE Ranchers Cooperative talked to Cattlemen’s Day attendees next on the cooperatives’ work on putting together a group of cattle producers to market their cull cows for a premium. Then came an update from Montana FWP discussing wolves, brucellosis in elk and grizzly bears. Christian MacKay from the Montana Department of Livestock then discussed the Designated Surveillance Area, department budget issues and other topics brought up by MCA members. Finally the annual membership meeting was held. MCA policy was discussed including subjects as bison, eminent domain, easements, wolves and grizzly bears and nominations for FWP Commission and Board of Livestock. After the meeting Montana Cattlemen’s Association heard from Senator Taylor Brown, chairman of the agriculture committee, on issues concerning agriculture in the upcoming legislative session. The evening meal of prime rib was then served up by the staff at the Billings Hotel and Convention Center and enjoyed by all. MCA President Mark Boone stated,”It was great to see a good turnout of dedicated ranchers trying to have a positive impact on the future of Montana’s cattle industry. We are an organization that truly values its membership and we always enjoy visiting with them and welcome hearing their ideas and concerns”.

The New Holland BR 7090 Round Baler’s redesigned bale chamber and forming rolls, in combination with the belts and the sealed adjustable hydraulic bale density system, start a core in any crop and build tight perfectly shaped bales. The integral formed ribs of the new rolls provide aggressive crop movement while eliminating surface imperfections on the ribs, which can be detrimental during the wrapping cycle. The new bale chamber design enables the operator to start cores and make bales in crops and conditions that previously would have been too difficult to bale.

Northeast crop news— What should I do?

By Paul O. Johnson, SDSU Extension Agronomy Field Specialist “What should I do, or how should I farm with these dry conditions -- should I look at changing to no till?” It is not a question I can really answer. It is a question that a person needs to answer for themselves. The question I can help with is to make sure you are looking at all possible options, whether that be no-till, minimum till, organic, all corn, rotations of corn, wheat, beans, rotations of corn and beans, more acres, or less acres. Ultimately I want you to do the best job possible with the type of farming you select to get the best yields with the least cost. Every type of farming has advantages and disadvantages. One of the keys is the type of management you prefer. If are interested in no-till but don’t want to check fields closely on a regular basis, this may not be the way for you. What works for your neighbor may not work for you, but a good farmer is always watching others to try to get ideas on how to do better. I think the big question for the future, however, is going to be how can I hold input costs down and try to keep cost of production down? With the present costs that I would use on corn, you would have a hard time raising corn for less than $4.00 to break even. If I looked at soybeans with the present costs, I would look at a minimum of about $9.00 to break even. Most of these costs do not have labor figured in them and I am only using a land charge of $130.00 per acre which may be high or low depending on how you view it. With today’s input prices, $2.00 corn and $5.00 beans would take a lot of farmers out of production quickly. I think this is a year to look at locking in a profit when you can because prices may go higher or lower. With these higher input costs we are at higher levels on cost of production and in a very interesting market picture. In some cases the market is not being driven by supply as in the past. There is a whole host of other factors like the price of oil, which is a big factor in costs and the market. These also are very interesting times in farming just as it is in the rest of the economy. I would look at the market and prices, and if you can make a profit, it may be time to lock in some grain of next year. If we would hit a good rally it may be time to take some profit and sell.

New vaccine for foot and mouth disease

A newly created vaccine against foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is the first of its kind to be licensed by the USDA Center for Veterinary Biologics. The novel approach taken to create this vaccine makes possible its manufacture in the US. The vaccine was originally developed by Dr. Marvin Grubman of the Agricultural Research Service at Plum Island Animal Disease Center and took seven years to develop and license with scientists at GenVec, Inc. GenVec has licensed the rights to develop and commercialize this vaccine technology to Merial, the animal health division of Sanofi. The FMD virus contains genetic material (nucleic acids) surrounded by a coat of proteins called a capsid. The new vaccine production system produces only the virus coat proteins, forming an empty capsid that lacks the viral nucleic acid needed for replication. The immune systems of animals given the new vaccine respond to the capsid proteins and are primed to fight the virus if presented with the real thing. The new vaccine provides a safety advantage because the vaccine virus cannot replicate in the animal. FMD is one of the most highly contagious diseases of livestock. FMD is present in large parts of the world including
