However, the term gets thrown around so often it’s not always easy to pinpoint what it means. According to Mr Webster, sustainability is “of, relating to, or being a method of harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged.” Read More

GO-Richland 2018 Recap

Monday, December 03, 2018

Looking back at the 2018 growing season at our Richland, Iowa Research Farm, it was quite a condensed season. We had the coldest April in 100 years. I learned that the normal flowering dates for our clovers were pushed back 4-6 days and forage production was cut drastically.

Snow and below freezing temperatures into the last week of April really limited forage production and while the flowering dates were a bit later, they couldn’t make up for the 3 weeks of growth they missed out on. Read More

Breaking the Columbia Root Knot Nematode life cycle with Carwoodi Oil Seed Radish

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Columbia Root Knot Nematodes (CRKN) are a pest of the Washington, Oregon, Idaho and the San Louis Valley in Colorado potato crop. It can reduce yield and quality, causing economic loss to the grower. Damage to potatoes appears as rough, warty patches on the outside of the tuber, with golden-brown spots in the potato's flesh from the dead females and their egg masses. These brown spots darken when the potato is fried, making the damage appear even more serious. In addition to damage on the potato tubers, above ground foliage may become stunted, wilted or turn yellow as the root system is destroyed causing a reduction in yields.  Read More
