Meetings to discuss upcoming wheat crop

ENID, Okla. — Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, in cooperation with several ag businesses in Major County, will host wheat production meetings starting with breakfast at 7 a.m. Wednesday in Fairview at the Major County Fairgrounds.

The next meeting will be 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Ames Community Building with lunch. The same content will be presented at both meetings.

Speakers for the event will include Jeff Edwards, Oklahoma State wheat specialist; Brian Arnall, OSU Extension soil scientist; and Roger Don Gribble, OSU Extension northwest area agronomist.

Producers face many production decisions as they prepare and plant the 2014 wheat crop in the next few months. The information provided at these production meetings should go far in assisting producers with these and many other wheat management decisions.

Speakers will share information on many topics including clearfield wheat systems, wheat variety trial results, soil fertility considerations and some thoughts on pro-active wheat and insect management strategies for the 2014 wheat crop. Producers are encouraged to bring own specific questions to these production meetings.

Sponsors for these meetings are W.B. Johnston Grain of Fairview, Sooner Co-op Inc. in Fairview, Farmers Elevator Co. Ames/Drummond, Great Plains Co-op Lahoma, Meno and Ringwood and Winfield Solutions of Enid.

Questions regarding these wheat production meetings should be directed to Major County OSU Extension Center located in the Courthouse at 500 E. Broadway in Fairview or by calling at (580) 227-3786.

Bedwell is Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service ag educator for Major County.

    Bees are venturing out to visit the new flowers. Keep a close watch on your garden. Often, helpful pest-destroying insects are out, getting ready to work for you, also. These, and the bees helpfully pollinating flowers, shouldn’t be discouraged by the undiscriminating spraying of insecticides.
