Come View Dryland Harvest Aid/Variety Trial TOMORROW Thursday at 10 am

The Lubbock County Extension Staff, with the help of Dr. Seth Byrd, established a dryland "cotton harvest aid products" trial on October 12 on the Cole Hamilton Farm. This is in the same field as our Dryland RACE Cotton Variety Trial, located at the NW corner of FM 1729 and CR 1900 (5 mi W of New Deal). The variety trial has been defoliated and is nearing harvest.

Come out and join us for 30-45 minutes on Thursday October 20 at 10am to walk through the plots and view these two trials before the cotton is off the stalk. Hope to see you on October 20!

Fall Armyworms in High Plains Wheat

This afternoon on the radio I reported that we were seeing fall armyworm activity in freshly emerged wheat. Dr. Ed Bynum, extension entomologist with Texas A&M Agrilife in Amarillo, wrote an article today on fall armyworms in the area, including what other crops it may feed on and possible treatment options. You can find the article here at Texas Panhandle Pest News. Thanks, Ed!
