We are trying to assess training needs for the local agricultural community. This short survey should take you less than two minutes! Here’s the link:
TRAINING TO CERTIFY CURING BARNS/TOBACCO GAP CERTIFICATION

Kent just wanted to let you know that we are now at a 4 week turnaround time on soil samples. Reports are being released and available on PALS for soil samples received around January 10th. There are still approximately 45,000 samples yet to be processed. There is still time for folks to take and submit samples for soil fertility analysis. Maybe some growers want to check on potassium and sulfur levels in their wheat crop, especially after the rains that we have had in January and February. Tissue sampling wheat is another good practice to help assure nutrient levels in the plant are adequate. Tissue samples have a 2-3 day turnaround time. Lastly, solution analysis of tobacco floatbeds is a good practice to follow especially with the new GAP certification rules for tobacco growers. Kent can be reached at 252-340-1135.
