The National Wheat Foundation will once again host the National Wheat Yield Contest. Are you ready to enter??!!
Wheat quality discounts for low “falling numbers” (FN) had a brutal impact on many PNW growers during the 2016 harvest—with loss estimates likely to approach $140 million.
In January WSDA issued a permit that allows applicators to use newer technology to control drift and run higher pressures when applying restricted use pesticides.
When wheat breaks dormancy, followed by the weather turning unseasonable cold again, tissue that was a nice green could turn purple thanks to anthocyanin pigment expression.
The McGregor Company partners with HydroGro to introduce new technology into the PNW seed care arena. Soils in the PNW are extremely deficient in Zinc so supplementing growing crops with Zinc applications have always paid dividends for growers.
USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) reminds farmers in Idaho, Oregon and Washington that the final date to purchase or modify federal crop insurance coverage on most 2017 spring-planted crops is approaching.
