Bermudagrass Control for Kentucky Lawns

5/24/2024 (new)
Authors: Kenneth Clayton, Paul Andrew Rideout, Jason Vaughn, Beth Wilson

Bermudagrass (Cynodon dactylon), a warm-season perennial grass, increasingly has become a problem in Kentucky cool-season turfgrass. Over much of the lower Southeastern United States, bermudagrass is the king of the turfgrasses. Celebrated for its aggressive growth habit, quick recovery, and ability to tolerate low mowing heights, bermudagrass can be found everywhere from high-end golf courses and prestigious sports stadiums to home lawns.

2021 Soybean Yield and Quality Contest

9/7/2023 (new)
Authors: Matt Adams, Clint Hardy, Katie Hughes, Carrie Knott, Brett Mitchell, Troy Muse, Dana O'Nan, Conner Raymond, Paul Andrew Rideout, Darrell Simpson

In Kentucky, farmers grow soybeans in two common soybean production systems: full season and double crop. Farmers plant full season soybeans in the spring and harvest them that fall, so they have harvested one crop in one calendar year. Farmers plant double crop soybeans after wheat harvest in June. These soybeans are harvested later that fall, making them the second crop harvested in the same calendar year. Both systems are important to the overall production of soybean in Kentucky. Therefore, in 1980, an annual soybean yield contest was initiated in Kentucky to document the agronomic practices utilized by producers.

AGR-270

Restoring a Flood-damaged Lawn

3/14/2023 (new)
Authors: Kenneth Clayton, Paul Andrew Rideout, Jason Vaughn, Beth Wilson

Flooding across Kentucky has been an increasing problem in recent years and has caused significant damage to many properties, including home lawns. The deterioration or death of turfgrass is often caused by grass being smothered with silt and sand deposits left from the flood or grass being submerged under water for prolonged periods. Lack of oxygen to the plant can cause death when submerged, and the rate of death is often worse with higher water temperatures. Repairing these areas is important for reducing chances of erosion as well as allowing a return to the regular use of the lawn.

2019 Soybean Yield and Quality Contest

6/2/2020 (new)
Authors: Matt Adams, Danny Adams, Matt Futrell, Clint Hardy, Curt Judy, Carrie Knott, Leann Martin, Tyler Miller, Michelle Simon, Darrell Simpson, Mike Smith

In Kentucky, farmers grow soybeans in two common soybean production systems: full season and double crop. Farmers plant full season soybeans in the spring and harvest them that fall, so they have harvested one crop in one calendar year. Farmers plant double crop soybeans after wheat harvest in June. These soybeans are harvested later that fall, making them the second crop harvested in the same calendar year. Both systems are important to the overall production of soybean in Kentucky. Identifying management practices that maximize yield of each system is a vital step in identifying the most profitable management systems for Kentucky. Therefore, in 1980, an annual soybean yield contest was initiated in Kentucky to document the agronomic practices utilized by producers.

PPFS-FR-T-3

Frogeye Leaf Spot, Black Rot, and Canker of Apple

2/1/2016 (new)
Authors: Paul Andrew Rideout, Nicole Ward Gauthier

Black rot and frogeye are common names of an apple disease that occurs in three phases: (1) leaf infections result in frogeye leaf spot, while (2) fruit rot and (3) branch infections are referred to as black rot. All three phases can cause significant damage in Kentucky home and commercial orchards.
