Growers need to deal with wheat head scab PDF Print E-mail

This is the time to begin thinking about head scab and its management with fungicide. Heads are most susceptible to the scab fungus during flowering and infection is favored by warm, wet or humid conditions.
Fields in the northern half of the state that are likely to reach flowering around today. Moreover, conditions have been humid; both rainfall and high humidity favor scab development and vomitoxin contamination of the grain.
Continue to use the prediction tool to assess the risk for scab over the next 7 to 10 days, and be prepared to apply Prosaro or Caramba, if moderate to high risk is predicted at the time the crop reaches the flowering growth stage. Remember, these fungicides are most effective against scab and vomitoxin when applied at flowering. However, if you are unable to treat your field at the flowering stage, you can still get good scab and vomotoxin control if you apply the fungicide up to six days after flowering.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Farm Service Agency has begun accepting requests for marketing assistance loans (MALs) and loan deficiency payments (LDPs) for eligible 2014 commodities.
MALs and LDPs for the 2014 crop year become available to eligible producers beginning with harvest/shearing season and extending through a specific commodity's final loan availability date.
Sugar commodity loans for 2014 crop will be available to sugar processors beginning Oct. 1.
MALs and LDPs provide financing and marketing assistance for wheat, feed grains, soybeans, and other oilseeds, pulse crops, wool, mohair and honey. MALs provide producers interim financing after harvest to help them meet cash flow needs without having to sell their commodities when market prices are typically at harvest-time lows. Allowing farmers to store their products at harvest facilitates a more orderly marketing of commodities throughout the year. A producer who is eligible to obtain a loan, but agrees to forgo the loan, may obtain an LDP if such a payment is available.

It's another milestone for Tom Kashmer, Research Coordinator of Sandusky County Park District. In 2010, Kashmer banded his 100,000th bird, a feat accomplished by very few individuals around the country.
Kashmer has now reached a unique place in history when an Indigo Bunting crossed his path last fall at Creek Bend Farm in Lindsey. The bird was a 'recap,' meaning it had already been captured, recorded, banded and released.
What makes this unique is that it was previously banded in 2001. It was estimated to have hatched in 2000.  Ironically, the Indigo Bunting was originally banded just down the road (as the buntings fly) on May 23, 2001 by Mark Shieldcastle in Ottawa County. The United States Geological Survey has officially certified the encounter as the oldest documented Indigo Bunting in the wild. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology currently lists the oldest
