Dixon Springs

I took the long trip to Dixon Springs Research Center field day yesterday. What a wonderful place. I am not sure that people realize how much important research is one there that cannot be done on campus. I hope they find a way to keep it open. Saw a long term erosion study that was very interesting. That will be another day. I also saw a high tunnel at work, blueberry production and healthy looking cattle living on Tall Fescue.

Crops in the southern part of the state are spotty. Saw some really nice looking soybeans. Saw some burned up corn. Some corn was at the drying down stage. Probably could begin harvest next week. Also saw some corn with huge ears that had dropped over. Probably not planted close enough together.
