Reduced Tillage Farm Tour

August 7, 2013

Reduced Tillage Farm Tour
Grab dinner and a beverage at Empire Farm Days and then join us for a free tour of local farms to view reduced tillage crops and equipment and a comparison of production practices. The tour will start at Fred Jensen's Farm*. Whether you're already an established reduced tiller, thinking of trying it, or a relatively new adopter fine-tuning your reduced tilling, you'll learn a lot at this tour.

Reduced Tillage Tour plantings and equipment:
- Deep placement of ammonia preplant vs. liquid N applied at planting
- Strip tiller with N applicator configured from various components
- Strip till soybeans planted with and without auto guidance
- No till soybeans drilled vs. planted in 30 inch rows
- Crops in fields with effective tile vs. insufficient tile
- Auto steer on an articulated tractor, and auto guidance that failed
- Ammonia applied on a bias to corn planting

For more information about this event, contact Bill Verbeten of the NWNY Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops Team.

For more information on reduced till vegetables, contact Carol MacNeil.

Announcements

Late Blight Confirmed in Many NY Counties

Late blight (LB) has been confirmed now in Erie, Wyoming, Allegany, Wayne, Yates, Livingston and Genesee Counties, and is suspected in a couple other Western NY/Finger Lakes counties. It was confirmed in Ontario, Canada, this past week, and is spreading across MI. The continued wet weather has been very favorable for development. The disease has spread rapidly where growers havenít been able to maintain a tight spray schedule due to excessive rain. A new LB strain, Mating Type B, has shown up on two small farms 25 miles apart in Allegany Co. All other LB strains for the past 40+ years have been Type A1 or Type A2. Nothing is known about where this new strain came from, or its sensitivity to specific fungicides, so it must be assumed that it is not sensitive to mefenoxam fungicides (Ridomil and other products). Fortunately, the majority of LB samples from the area that were tested have been US23, sensitive to mefenoxam fungicides.

If you think you might have LB contact Carol MacNeil, John Gibbons, or another Cornell Vegetable Program staff member. LB DSS users: If you need assistance contact Ian Small or Carol MacNeil.
