REDWOOD COUNTY EXTENSION Dean Pedersen, Acting Redwood Co. Ext. Agent I I Postemergence herbicide injury to soybeans "Watch out for a potential postemergence herbicide injury to soybeans", said Dean Pedersen, Redwood County Extension Agent.

Schmitt said the formula can be used anywhere in Minnesota. The formula takes into account three variables: when nitrogen was last applied, the moisture condition of the soil that predominated this spring and the crop's condition. "If you add the scores we've assigned to the various possibilities, you'll get a total that will tell you what action to take," Schmitt said. To score, the first variable-- fertilizer management -- take 4 points if nitrogen was applied last fall; 3 points if it was applied early this spring, before the rains; 2 points if it was applied late this spring (after Memorial Day) and 1 point if you applied nitrogen at a reduced rate, consistent with a Therefor, read those labels carefully, watch your rates, avoid lower yield goal.

Rock Legion baseball events With the strengthening US dollar, I can now receive 11,600 zlotys. I just finished a $3500 ice cream bar that I purchased on the street. After 3 days in Warsaw, I still have to mentally cover up four zeroes to approximate the cost in American dollars. I am sure that it will come automatically after a few more days. Our group of 10 American Extension agents arrived in Warsaw on Sunday, June 9. As we rode to the hotel from the airport along a flag-lined street with barricades and numerous policemen at every intersection and people line up along the street, we thought that this assignment must be bigger and more important than we expected. Then we discovered that the Pope was expected along the same street in the opposite direction on his way to the airport! Warsaw is an unusual city for the American who first sees it. There are many fairly new apartment buildings dotting the skyline on the drive from the airport. The airport is very small, especially for a major European capital, indicating that there is liule subsidies, and tariffs, and they developed and stabilized the currency exchange rate and allowed the Polish zlotys to be exchanged for Western currency. They took all of the recommendations given to them to make a demand economy work, and they instilled them all at one time. As one Polish leader said, "You do not jump a canyon in 2 jumps!" This change created tremendous pain. The cost of living soared for most Poles. And farmers were caught with excess goods to sell at poor prices, due to a dumping of products from other countries and a loss of markets to the Soviet Union because of the collapse of their economy the questions become: How do you prioratize 85% of the economy which was formerly state-controlled and state-owned?

Yield losses range from unseen to 80%, depending on rainfall, fertihty, other diseases and the nematode population. Yields reductions from SCN damage can be greatly increased if the soybean plants are grown under moisture stress or attacked by root rotting fungi. SCN has been identified in 18 Minnesota counties including Redwood. Undetected infestations are probably present in many other locations. Your awareness of this problem will help in efforts to report additional infested sites and more inches tall. and 80% of the population died If the total score you get for these three variables is 7 or less, you don't need to apply more nitrogen. If you get a total of 8 or 9 points, you're in a gray situation and should reevaluate the situation in about a week. By then, the roots most likely will have gone deeper, where there's more nitrogen, and the plants may be a healthy, green color. However, if you get a total scot~ of 10 or greater, we recommend you apply an addition 40 to 60 pounds of supplemental nitrogen fertilizer per acre. "Don't assume that just because during the war. As a result, the city we see now is almost completely rebuilt and repopulate.d. There were a total of 6 million Poles killed during WWlI and another 5 million relocated.
