  • According to our weather forecasters, it looks like we are getting ready for another swing in our weather. 

    The cool, wet weather pattern was great for my peas, greens and potatoes, but I am starting to think maybe I should have waited one more week before putting the tomatoes and peppers out. 

    Our rollercoaster ride from hot and dry to cool and wet and back again is good news for some and bad for others.

    So how do precipitation and temperature affect plants? Well, in every way possible.

  • Farmers and landowners are reminded that they have until Tuesday, June 1, 2010, to sign up for the 2010 Direct and Counter-cyclical Program and the Average Crop Revenue Election Program. More than 75 percent of an expected 1.7 million farms have already enrolled.

    Producers must be aware of these deadlines and take action. Farmers and landowners must enroll their eligible farms no later than June 1, 2010, to take advantage of these important programs. USDA calculates DCP payments using base acres and payment yields established for each farm.
