The greenhouse is open and planting has begun.Now is a great time to send us your winter
Our meeting season will kick off in December with the NCWSS
meeting in Columbus, OH the 10th-13th.Let us know if you are planning to be
there.In January things start to get
busy as we plan to be at the following meetings:
NAICC, San Antonio, TX (Jan. 22-25)
SWSS, Biloxi, MS (Jan. 27-29)
Cotton & Rice Conf., Memphis, TN (Jan. 30-31)
We will announce our February and March schedules as when
we get the details set.
We are trying to reach the end of harvest season for
2019.With the exception of our late
soybean trials, all the yielded trials are out of the field and we are
finishing off the final reports.The
early part of harvest season went well for the most part with only a few
scattered rains to slow progress.However, we had some heavy rains and fewer drying days as we moved into
the later part of October.Most of the
soybeans are ready to harvest when we can get back in the field.
Wheat planting is largely done, although we still have time
for a late trial or two if you have the need.We also have some large blocks of wheat planted that can be converted to
plots for postemergence trials this winter or next spring.
We still have a few miscellaneous trials in the field, but
field work for the season is slowing rapidly in general.
As field work slows, we are turning our attention to the
greenhouse.Our heated greenhouse space
is open and ready for another winter of testing.In past years, we have conducted a wide
variety of trials on row crops, vegetables, turf, and even fruit trees.We can also grow a wide range of weeds and
offer testing on about any other pests we can get our hands on in winter.Let us know how we can serve you by
generating data during the cold months.
We finally got a break from the hot, dry weather of
September and received some much-needed rainfall.It was dry enough that we generally did not
grip too much about the interruptions during harvest (at least not until the
later part of October).And a break from
the heat did not feel bad either as temperatures returned to their seasonal
norms.The showers also allowed us to
get wheat off to a good start, so things have returned to normal for the
The late October rainfall should help provide us with a
good crop of weeds for fall and spring burndown trials.Let us know if you are looking for some
burndown spots and we will make it happen.
He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand, but the
hand of the diligent maketh rich.
