Weevil-Wheat-Canola

3/5/13

Beautiful moisture event!!! An inconvenience………..but beautiful moisture.

I found alfalfa weevil in alfalfa buds yesterday. They were extremely small, not a concern just yet, but they are here.

I checked for first hollow stem (wheat) today, but only in ONE early planted ungrazed field. It was not here yet, but was starting to form.  O-State has published that they have found first hollow stem at some of their test plots, so what few cattle that are on wheat this year may  ought to start making arrangements to come off.

Now would be the time to apply glyphosate to your RR canola fields.  As the days lengthen and temperatures warm the canola will bolt and glyphosate needs to be applied prior to bolting.  Don’t miss the opportunity to eliminate the unwanted plants (rye, cheat, goat grass, etc.) that is probably one of the reasons you put that field in canola in the first place.

Although the “ideal” time to apply fertility such as nitrogen to your wheat field may be past, IF you do not have fertility in place there is probably benefit for applying it still.  Going late will likely increase yields sufficiently to more than pay for the fertilizer, but you may not want to put on as many pounds of N as you would have a month ago.

You need to chck EVERYTHING you have in the cupboards, and throw away all the stuff that eiethr has webs or larvae.I use bay laves in the cupboards and in my canisters, and haven't had a problem in about 6 weeks. They won't get rid of what you already have, but seem to help controlling them.

I just posted this on the Metro website.When it is difficult to tell who the good guys are from the bad guys it is a sad day for us all. I am glad to see the back of OBL but do not celebrate anyones death and have been encouraged by the restrained comments on those lines by the families of the victims of 9/11. Their dignity does the US credit. djaydeckers comments are misguided and frankly do not help the argument. I am proud to be British and if you can t take well meaning criticism from your friends you are in trouble. I am free and living in a wonderful country which is part of a wonderful continent that is also free. That is due in no small measure to the sacrifices of many Americans. From the bottom of my heart thank you, but that gave people like me and Tony Metcalf the right to say what we think.The comment referred to was one of those where everyone in Europe was a s*** etc etc.I agree with Denis though and would add that the execution was bad but the alternative would have been far worse.GD Star Ratingloading...
