Michigan wheat farmers will want to spend some time reviewing results of the just released 2014 wheat varietal performance trials, before making seed purchasing decisions for this fall’s planting.
Michigan State University wheat experts have planted wheat varietal trial plots for over 15 years. In 2014, Dr. Eric Olson and Lee Siler had plots at six locations. Last summer’s plantings were seriously challenged by the epic winter, and the Sanilac and Lenawee County sites had to be abandoned this spring due to severe water and ice damage.
Data on the 2014 trials is posted at www.miwheat.org, the website of the Michigan Wheat Program in the What’s Hot Box on the front page. Once clicked, the results of the 2014 trials is displayed alongside the 2013 wheat variety trials. The MWP website also has links to MSU wheat variety trial results in 2012 and prior years.
Northwestern Michigan College (NMC) and Michigan State University (MSU) will host a conference, “Weathering the Climate: Cultivation and Technology in Grape Production,” Sept. 5 at the Hagerty Center at NMC’s Great Lakes Campus, 710 E. Front Street, Traverse City.
The conference features experts in agricultural technology, geography, horticulture, and other areas related to unmanned aerial systems technology and the science of grape production.
Sessions will include Climate Change and Potential Agronomic Impacts in the Great Lakes Region, Impacts of the 2014 Polar Vortex on Grapes: Lessons Learned, How to Manage Grapes for Our Changing Climate, and Unmanned Systems and Technology Applications in Viticulture. There will be a vineyard demonstration of the application of unmanned systems at Chateau Chantal Vineyard and Winery, and a panel of grape growers will discuss practical applications of unmanned systems technology in vineyard management.
Conference speakers include Brian Matchett, MSU Institute of Agricultural Technology; Jeff Andresen, MSU Department of Geography; Imed Dami, Ohio State University Department of Horticulture and Crop Science; Paolo Sabbatini, MSU Department of Horticulture; Duke Elsner, MSU Extension; Ed Bailey, NMC Technical Division; and Tony Sauerbrey, NMC Unmanned Aerial Systems.
