A Comprehensive Guide to Wheat Management in Kentucky
2/23/2016 (reprinted)

 UK Authors: Bill Bruening, J.D. Green, John
 Departments: Agricultural Economics, Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering,
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags: farm crops, grain crops, small grains

The soft red winter wheat grown in Kentucky is the fourth most valuable cash crop in the state. Winter wheat has been an integral part of crop rotation for Kentucky farmers. Wheat is normally harvested in June in Kentucky and provides an important source of cash flow during the summer months.

Fertilizer Management in Alfalfa
1/8/2014 (new)

 UK Authors: David Ditsch, Lloyd Murdock,
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: cover and forage crops, farm crops, legumes

Alfalfa is a high quality, valuable forage crop that can be successfully produced on most well-drained soils in Kentucky for hay, silage, and grazing. Fertilizing alfalfa can be uniquely challenging because it is a high-yielding crop that removes a tremendous amount of soil nutrients when compared to other crops grown in Kentucky. A thorough understanding of alfalfa's growth habits, nutrient requirements, and soil nutrient supply mechanisms is necessary to effectively manage fertilizer inputs and maximize profitability while minimizing environmental impact.

AGR-200
Soil Sampling and Nutrient Management in Horse Pastures
7/27/2010 (new)

 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.

AGR-185
Nitrogen Transformation Inhibitors and Controlled-Release Urea
4/21/2010 (major revision)

 UK Authors: Lloyd Murdock, Greg Schwab
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: nutrient management

The soaring cost of fossil fuels is an indicator that nitrogen fertilizer prices are going to remain high for the foreseeable future. With higher N prices, many producers are trying to evaluate the usefulness of several N additive products in their production systems. High N prices make these products more attractive because it takes fewer pounds of saved N to offset the price of the additive. Producers should have a good understanding of how these products work in order to make informed decisions regarding their use.

ID-159
Corn and Soybean Production Calendar
12/16/2009 (reprinted)

 UK Authors: Ric Bessin, J.D. Green, Jim Herbek
 Departments: Agricultural Economics, Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering,
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)
 Tags: corn, farm crops, grain crops,

The Corn and Soybean Production Calendar was developed to help producers prioritize and schedule work events in a timely fashion on the farm. Weather events and equipment breakdowns rarely follow an organized schedule. However, if other practices within the farming operation are prioritized, perhaps a producer can better address the emergencies that will occur.

AGR-198
Sulfur Fertilization in Kentucky
10/23/2008 (new)

 UK Authors: Greg Schwab
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences
 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: nutrient management

There are a lot of misunderstandings regarding sulfur (S) nutrition for Kentucky crops. Sulfur is considered a seconda r y pla nt nutrient because, although the crop requirement for S is relatively large, it is usually found in soil at concentrations adequate for plant growth and yield so that no fertilizer S is needed. For many years, soil S was maintained by atmospheric deposition. However, more stringent clean air standards require greater removal of S during burning of fossil fuels. That fact, along with increasing crop yields, has caused many Kentucky grain producers to begin to question if S fertilization will increase yield.

Taking Soil Test Samples
9/4/2007 (reprinted)

 UK Authors: Lloyd Murdock, Greg Schwab,
 Departments: Plant and Soil Sciences, Regulatory Services
 Series: Agronomy (AGR series)
 Tags: nutrient management, soil and land

The most important part of making fertilizer recommendations is collecting a good, representative soil sample. Soil test results and fertilizer recommendations are based solely on the few ounces of soil submitted to the laboratory for analysis. These few ounces can represent several million pounds of soil in the field. If this sample does not reflect actual soil conditions, the results can be misleading and lead to costly over- or under-fertilization. It is necessary to make sure that the soil sample sent to the laboratory accurately represents the area sampled.
