Wheat Injury Unlikely Despite Unusually Cold Temperatures

Carrie Knott, Extension Agronomist-Princeton, University of Kentucky

Most of the wheat crop in Kentucky is either still tillering (Feekes 4-5) or just beginning to joint (Feekes 6). Although this has presented management challenges this year, it also may have protected the crop against freeze injury from the unusually cold temperatures the past two nights.

On-Farm Grain Storage Fumigation Workshop

Doug Johnson, Extension Entomologist
The University of Kentucky Grain Science Working group will be offering a Grain Storage Fumigation Workshop on Tuesday May 13, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM CDT, at the UK-REC in Princeton, KY. This workshop follows the Annual Wheat Field Day that will be held at the center from 8:00 AM to noon the same day. These two programs are complementary, developed by the same working group, but are separate events. Additionally, the Fumigation Workshop will cover all grain crops. Each event will have its own registration and have requested separate pesticide continuing education units (CEU’s).
