Do not delay wheat harvest

Posted On Dec 17 2019 by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Wheat harvest date impacts both grain yield and quality. Delaying wheat harvest puts the crop at risk for increased disease, lodging, sprouting, and harvest loss. Last year in Clark County, we evaluated wheat harvested on June 29 (at 12% moisture content) and July 8 (at 14% moisture content). Grain moisture increased between June 29 and July 8 due to 0.58” rain between the two dates.When wheat harvest was delayed until July 8, yield decreased by nine bushels per acre, test weight decreased by 2.9 pounds per bushel, and DON level increased by 0.86 parts per million. Using a grain price of $4.50 per bushel and discounts from a local elevator, the difference the delayed wheat harvest resulted in a loss of $87 per acre compared to the June 29 harvest.With funding from the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program, we are continuing this research. However, we will be comparing grain yield and quality of wheat harvested at ~20% moisture to ~13% moisture.last_img read more

Residents of the Long Bay Hills and Leeward Electoral District turned out in good numbers Tuesday to hear from their Member of Parliament, Deputy Premier, Akierra Misick. The chief concerns are a recent break in spree and the school coming for the area. Residents were encouraged to develop a community policing program by guest to the public meeting, Police Inspector Hilton Duncan, but the residents also demanded greater police surveillance. A report from one resident attending the meeting revealed disappointment that there may not be enough police officers to offer the kind of patrolling this region of Provo needs. Another hot point at the meeting held at Wesley Methodist school is the coming of a government high school for the area. Debate continues to rage over whether it is better for this school to be a junior and senior high split, which is favored by the PDM and PPP political parties or whether the school should be zoned; having students resident in that area attend. Dr. Edward Smith, leader of the People Progressive Party attended the public meeting and expressed his objection to the zoning idea. On Monday the PDM stated their objection to the PNP Administration’s proposal of populating the coming Long Bay High by students who live in the district.
