For many growers, 2019 has been a challenging year for planting and growing crops in a weed-free environment. Grain sorghum, in particular, is greatly dependent on a successful pre-emergence program.
A team of Kansas State University wheat scientists are tapping into 10,000 years of evolution in the plant's genetic code as part of their continued efforts to understand how historic processes that shaped modern wheat can help to improve the varieties grown by today's farmers.
When someone passes away in a small town, the loss is felt throughout the entire community.
"The wheat crop in central Kansas is now moving through the flag leaf emergence and flowering stages of growth. The crop is most advanced in the southeast and south central region where many fields are either flowering or already into the early stages of grain development. Wheat in the north central and northwestern regions generally ranges from late-jointing to flag leaf emergence. These growth stages are critical for many wheat diseases and management decisions."
The warm sunshine of spring has melted winter's icy grip and that means one thing - field work is about to get underway.
Recently, we analyzed the accuracy of "estimated" weather observations used in many precision agriculture applications. We then compared them against "known" observations from local, on-farm weather stations. Here's what we found.
Now that the ground is finally thawing after a particularly brutal winter, let's plan our outside projects with safety in mind.
Farmers face long hours and fatigue during the lengthy planting season.
Edwards County Extension Agent, Martin Gleason, shares his thoughts on spring wheat.
The face of agriculture is ever changing. Once associated with only rural communities, today's agriculture is crisscrossing neighborhoods and dotting landscapes in urban areas, as well.
As we say hello to 2019, Tyree Ag would like to keep our customers informed about our crop nutrient retail partner, AgroLiquid.
When someone says "farmer," odds are you will think of a man. It's not fair, but that's the way it is - a misperception.

After soil testing, the nutritional plant analysis is the most important tool to understand what is happening in the plant regarding the nutritional effects on its physiology.
