Food innovation is progress

Seems like not a day goes by without a media story on our country's food supply. Some folks have concluded that the best plate may be an empty plate. How else are they going to avoid killer popcorn, monster tomatoes, drug-treated cattle, radioactive chicken or toenail hotdogs?

The Summer Lull

The wheat is in, the corn is finally tasselling, soybeans and grain sorghum are hanging in there, and it's county fair time.

Initial tillage was done and it was a little early to start intensively fertilizing and for final tillage. With irrigation and crop diversification the lull shrank a bit but typically irrigated corn was done flowering about now, sorghum and irrigated ...

Fair was a success

These last 2 weeks have been really busy for Extension, and for 4-H especially! In the upcoming week leading up to the fair, we were all busy behind the scenes working hard to ensure that the fair would go seamlessly for all who came out.

Turn off TV and get moving

Summertime is notorious for many things including TV reruns. Since I do not watch much TV any time of the year I can say that when I do sit down to watch something I am shocked by either the violence or language that is present during prime time. Of course, television has been around for nearly 75 years with the first TV appearing at the 1939 World's Fair. Concern about the impact of television on children began when TV was in its infancy. By the early 1950's parents, teachers and social scientists started to ask their legislators to ...
