Production of Other Small Grain Species
Fertilizer recommendations for the other small grain species are provided in Tables 6-12 through 6-14. Insect control recommendations can be found in Extension Bulletin 545, Insect Pests of Field Crops. Table 6-12: Recommended Nitrogen for Small Grains ...
Disease is one of the major factors limiting wheat yield and quality in Ohio and other Midwestern states. Yield losses as high as 30 to 50 percent are not uncommon in fields planted with susceptible varieties under disease-favorable conditions. Effective ...
Nutrient Value of Wheat Straw
The nutrient value of wheat straw is influenced by several factors including weather, variety, and cultural practices. Thus, the most accurate value requires sending a straw sample to an analytical laboratory. However, book value can be used to estimate ...
Weather Update: Transitioning to Spring: Will Spring-like Weather Continue?
Summary Not to be outdone by January, February temperatures have been much above normal as well. Figure 1 shows that much of the state will end the month with temperatures about 5-10°F above the long-term average (1991-2020). Locations such as Dayton and ...
Urban Orchard Fruit Tree Pruning Clinic
Join Eric Barrett and the orchard caretakers to learn about pruning, taking, fertilization, and general care of fruit trees in an urban setting. The free event will cover all the basics. Bring your questions and a lawn chair If you want to sit in the orch ...
A successful soil fertility program for wheat requires knowledge of a field’s yield potential and a recent soil test. The soil test will provide current levels of phosphorus and potassium in the soil and the soil pH. Soil pH will assist in determining the ...
Producing Wheat in 15-Inch Rows
Growers are interested in wide-row wheat production due to reductions in equipment inventory (lack of grain drill) and to allow intercropping of soybean into wheat. Wheat row spacing work conducted during the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 growing seasons indic ...
When planting at the proper time and into soil that is not too wet, seed should be planted 1.5-inches deep. Row width should be 6 to 8 inches. Planting by bushels per acre is very inaccurate due to variability in seed size from year to year and from one v ...
Insect pests in soybean are sporadic but can be yield-limiting when their populations do build. It is difficult to predict when and where insects may become a problem in soybean, so regular scouting is important. Timely foliar insecticide applications at ...
