Available for Wolf Depredation Compensation and Prevention Projects
The State of Idaho, through
the Office of Species Conservation (OSC) has funding from the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (Service) to compensate Idaho livestock producers for
livestock killed by wolves. Idaho was one of 10 states and a single tribal
nation to receive funding through the program. The funding comes through the
Services’ Wolf Livestock Demonstration Project Grant Program.
would like to pass along the stripe rust update from Dr. Xianming Chen,
USDA-ARS scientist in Pullman, WA.
October weather conditions have been conducive for stripe rust, so please report
any locations that you see with infections.
good news is, there was a good, dry break between harvest and planting next
year’s winter wheat. While this will reduce the chances of fall stripe rust
infections transferring from infected volunteer wheat, it is important to scout
susceptible varieties to determine if we have infection and have the potential
for overwintering of the fungus.
you have symptoms in the field that you have questions about, send me a
picture. I can often tell easily if it is stripe rust.
you know it is stripe rust, send me a picture with the location(s) and
varieties so we can keep track of those locations in the spring 2017. An early
warning will help us prepare. We usually do not recommend fall application of fungicides,
as infected leaves and the fungus often die over the winter.

In early 2016, the idea for the Agricultural Industry Survey
originated from a similar effort administered by a group of Colorado Extension
Specialists. Members of the Western Extension Committees (WEC) on Farm
Management and Marketing, made up of Extension economists from 13 Western
States, Guam, and the U.S. Pacific Islands then initiated a survey specific to
agriculture in the west.
The survey invitation was emailed to the WEC membership who
distributed it through Extension contact channels.
What is an Ag Legacy? A legacy is the summation of a lifetime of achievement and the context in which that lifetime will be remembered. A legacy is not just money but a reputation, what was accomplished, and the difference a person makes in the world as they pass through; their mark on the universe.
More importantly, a legacy is something that is passed along years after a person leaves the world as we know it. In historical terms, a legacy is something that is handed down from one generation to the next. Deciding to leave a legacy can provide a road map for the future; embracing the meaning of a life.…to read more click here

Disc mowers are fantastic machines. Compared to sickle bar mowers, they
cut faster, have less maintenance and repairs, and rarely plug. They can
cut the crop shorter and keep going even if they occasionally scalp the
surface. And that’s the problem!
`With alfalfa, regrowth comes from crown buds using nutrients stored
underground in the taproot. It doesn’t matter if you leave a 1-inch or a
4-inch stubble, alfalfa regrowth rate will be the same.
