Private applicator pesticide records New federal record keeping require- ments for private applicators must keep detailed records of restricted pesticide applications. The new private pesticide applica- tion bookeeping form and other details are available at the Jewell County Extension omce. The forms ask for name and address of the land owner or operator; date of application; product or brand name; EPA registration number; total amount of product ap- plied per unit (acre, bushel}; treatment location; total area treated (ac., bu., sq. ft.); crop, site, stored product treated; name of applicator; certified applicator number; target pest; wind direction; wind speed; temperature; time of ap- pllcatlon; method ofappllcation; equip- ment used for application; and com- ments. The government expects the farmer to keep the application records for two y~.(s, it is recommended that the rec- ords'be completed at the time of appli- cation. Suggested forms are available in the Extension Office. Weevils may cause growers to alter cutting strategy Alfalfa fields have moderate to se- vere alfalfa weevil damage, report Kansas State University entomologists at Manhattan. KSU Extension specialist Randy Hlggins says growers may want to consider early cutting as a manage- ment option. But that option is realis- tic. he says. only If growers will remove the mown hay soon after harvest and if they expect hot. sunshiny days to fol- low. But the larvae can survive to feed on new shoots that will form the second cutting of alfalfa if both overcast condi- t_lons exist and growers fail to bale and remove the alfalfa soon after cutting. Higgins reminds growers who are considering insecticide applicaflons of the mandatory preharvest waiting in- tervals associated with most products. Also. he says, Furadan and Lorsban are among products that permit only one spray on each cutting. Jim Shroyer. KSU crop production spec,alist, agrees that wet and cool weather and alfalfa weevil attacks are making the first cutting anything but routine for growers. "We could see some lower-than- expected yields because of the condi- tions," he points out. Shroyer says three easily recognizable signs tell growers when to cut their alfalfa: When basil growth (growth at the crown} begins to appear, when leaf loss begins due to weevils or other pests, and when the crop is at the I0 percent bloom stage of growth. The first two apply mostly to the first cutting and the third to all subsequent cuttings. However. if 'any early first cutting occurs, growers should con- sider delaying the second cutting until about the 25 percent bloom stage, he says. OeOoSSSeoeeSSaSSSSO ASCS News with Jim Peroutek Final date to certify, wheat, barley and oats The final date to certify 1993 wheat, barley, and oats is June I, 1993. Acre- age certification is required to maintain program participation or preserve crop history for those not participating in the farm program. Producers with measurements on file will have until June I or I 0 days after they receive their measurement, whichever is later, to certify the crops. Producers without measurements may walk-in or call for an appointment. Measurements We have received the 1993 wheat slides and are working on measure- ments. Appointments will be scheduled when the measurement service is sent out. Please contact our office if you cannot make the appointed time. '92 Crop Feed Grains in Farmer-Owned Reserve Feed grain producers intend to place 374.5 million bushels of 1992- crop corn, grain sorghum and barley in the farmer- owned reserve (FOR). Feed grain producers needed to file their intentions to enter 1992-crop corn, grain sorghum and barley in the FOR on or before April 30. Producers are also required to pledge 1992-crop feed grains intended for the FOR as collateral for a nine-month nonrecourse CCC price support loan contract by April 30. Because the total intentions are below the 900-million-bushel authorization. producers may place in the FOR the entire quantityof 1992-crop corn, grain sorghum and barley they designated. However, producer's stated intention to place feed grains into the FOR does not obligate the producer to place the feed grains into the reserve. The FOR loan rate will be the same rate as the nine-month loan rate. The FOR loans will mature 27 months from the date the nine-month loans mature, but producers may repay FOR loans anytime before maturity without pen- alty.
