When Is a Drought Over?

Probably nobody in the Golden Belt is under any illusion the drought is over. As we are well past the halfway point in wheat harvest, yields are all over the map. They tend to be much worse going west from Great Bend and fair to very good as you proceed east. Reports indicate yields less than 20 bushels per acre in western Barton County to some 60 bushel per acre fields in the east. These yields certainly provide a dramatic representation of where the snow and rains fell since the first of the year. Based on 60 bushel wheat, it ...

How about this oil well?

I think I have this event in the Cheyenne Bottoms/ Nature Conservancy figured out. It sorts out in 5th grade government studies, war, and the durability of mother nature and the birds. It involves emotional and life-long efforts by some people to protect our wildlife and the environment in a ever expanding population explosion on this earth that will eventually destroy us if not addressed at some point in time.

Watch for Thrips in your garden after harvest

With wheat harvest almost over for the year, insects will possibly be on the move into your garden. One of the main culprits to watch out for right now is thrips. K-State Research and Extension Entomologist J.P. Michaud says that there is a healthy population of thrips in the wheat fields in the area. With harvest removing one of their food sources, your garden is one place they may go.

4-H Fair events

With the weather heating up and the calendar turning to July it can only mean one thing – the Barton County Fair is coming! As I begin my 25th year with Barton County Extension I am seeing second generation 4-H'ers growing and learning through one of the best youth programs around. Kids who were active 4-H'ers in the 1990's now want their own children to gain from similar experiences. Fair time activities give youngsters a chance to showcase what they have learned from the 4-H projects they enrolled in last fall.
