Wheat With the recent moisture, wheat can now be seen for the first time since planting. I have received many ques- tions regarding the outlook for this year's crop. At the present my crystal ball is not functioning very well, but the experts say the weather in the near future will dictate the outcome. Most of the wheat in Jewell County has come out of dormancy. With in- creased moisture and warm tempera- tures, the wheat should continue to grow and even stool out. This will depend on the temperature and mois- ture conditions. As the wheat is greening and grow- ing, so will the weeds. These will need to be monitored closely. With most of the wheat on the thin and short side, weed competition and growth could be a serious threat to the crop. Herbicide selection at these early stages will be important. A long lasting residual herbicide may not be the best at this time due to the fact that if dry weather would re- turn and the wheat would fall, planting other crops is sometimes very limitec =, _ by the type of herbicide used. If the 3 Jewell County wheat continues to grow and is bar- students receive vested, some long lasting residual her- bicide is the best solution. These. are management decisions that are not easily made. The only other problem is that weeds need to be controlled when they are small so deci- sions have to be made in a timely fashion not wait and see. Good Luck. has story hour Burr Oak Library Story Hour, for children ages 3 through first grade, begins Monday and continues every Monday after school for 10 weeks.
