Wheat planting has finished up and we are doing a little maintenance on the wheat heading into winter.
A few sprays remain on some late winter annual weed control trials, but we should have those wrapped up pretty soon.
In short, the field work for this year is slowing down as we transition to mostly greenhouse work over the winter.
Other meeting we have on the schedule in January include:
Beltwide Cotton Conferences (JAN 3-5, San Antonio)
NAICC (JAN 17-20, Tucson)
SWSS (JAN 22-24, Atlanta)
As always, let us know where you plan to be this winter. We look forward to catching up and planning for next season.
Now is a great time to let us know if you are considering generating some data in the greenhouse this winter. We have several months and lots of space to work with, so let us know how we can be of service.
TOURS FROM PAST MONTH:
The weather this fall has seen a bit more rain than usual for harvest time, but the temperatures have been largely mild and pleasant. If you believe the national weather service, we should experience a winter that is a warmer and dryer than normal. We'll see.
Winter annual weeds seem to be coming along fine. Along with our usual covering of henbit, we are getting good populations of poa and chickweed. If we pick the right spots, I believe we also have some pretty good cutleaf eveningprimrose and horseweed populations to work with.
We are very thankful to all of you that allowed Diligence Technologies to be part of your research program over the past year. We wish you and your families a safe and blessed Christmas season.
