2018 Kentucky Small Grains Variety Performance Test

 UK Authors: Bill Bruening, John Connelly,
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Progress Report (PR series)

The 2018 soft red winter wheat growing season ended with Kentucky farmers harvesting approximately 300,000 acres of the 440,000 acres planted, for a total production of 24 million bushels of grain. An average yield of 80 bushels per acre was estimated by NASS, but that figure may be reduced due to the shorter seed filling period associated with persistent high temperatures in May. The acreage not harvested for grain was primarily used for forage production and cover cropping.

 UK Authors: M.W. Piersawl, Greg Schwab
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: horses, soil and land

Horse pastures are fertilized to ensure a reliable supply of energy, protein, and other nutrients for a long season of grazing. Management of plant nutrients maintains a balance of improved grasses and legumes and suppresses many pasture weeds. Properly fertilized pastures look good and harm neither animals nor the environment.
