Sugercane aphids

Sugarcane aphids have a good chance of being a serious issue in Sorghum fields this year. Despite a slow start in 2015, the sugarcane aphid is now spreading fast. The aphid has been causing serious problems in Georgia where some farmers have been seeking insecticide alternatives after two applications of Transform, the allowable limit. This week, economically significant infestations were found as far north as Noble, Kay, and Grant Counties in Oklahoma, right on the Kansas state line. With some southerly wind, we will soon get winged aphids landing in Kansas sorghum.

Where Are Those Polts?

There are several breakfast or coffee meetings in our area. They are usually comprised of the same core group with a few occasional stragglers that drop in. I have observed that politicians want to "test the water" by making a photo op and pretend to be interested in the ideas or conclusions of these "grass root" citizens. Excuse me if I don't see the common sense of our coffee clatches reflected in the national debate and policy- we are usually befuddled by the actions of those we thought we elected to represent us.

Rumpus Chumpus Trumpus

For all those bemoaning the lack of noise in the Republican presidential sweepstakes, it's time to get down on our knees and give thanks to Donald Trump because whatever that man touches turns to loud. He's the gift that keeps on blaring. Has all the delicate innuendo of concrete curtain rods. Not just a loose cannon, more like a loose aircraft carrier.
