  • Although soybean yields have been pretty good this year, the seed quality of harvested soybeans has not been great in some areas of the state. 

    Seed diseases have been prevalent in areas that have received a lot of rain since harvest season began.  Phomopsis seed decay (usually caused by Diaporthe longicolla, formerly known as Phomopsis longicolla) and purple seed stain (caused by Cercospora kikuchii and Cercospora flagellaris) are the two main culprits of poor quality seed.

  • The holidays are quickly approaching. While holidays give people time to spend with loved ones, all the extra purchases for gifts, food and decorations can quickly escalate. If you have not been saving all year, you might be starting to feel the financial pinch that can come with the season.

  • The holiday season is a time for giving thanks and giving back. Now is the perfect time of year to teach children the importance of community service and to nurture the spirit of giving.

    Start by choosing a charity in your own community. Talk to youth about the kinds of charities they would like to support.
