April's Ag Advice By April Borders Wheat growers faced many production challenges this past season. Wet field conditions in spring and early summer provided an environment ideal for a variety of diseases that resulted in significant yield losses in many cases. Many row crop acres went unplanted due to the wet weather.
So � Where do you go from here? Are you going to plant wheat this fall?
To address these questions and many others, the South 2 Field Education Unit of the Cooperative Extension Service will conduct an informational program on winter and spring wheat production. It will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 30, from 1:30 to 4 pm, at the Parker Community Building.
Program topics will include disease management, economic considerations, cultural practices, and variety selection. Speakers include Marty Draper, Extension plant pathologist from SDSU; S2 Extension Educators April Borders-Agronomy, Connie Strunk-Agronomy, Steve Sutera-Agronomy, and Zach Rada-Marketing/Farm Management.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend. There is no registration fee.
