Time to organize for spring garden care


Ned Birkey

Weather: March may have come in like a lamb, but several agricultural forecasts are calling for cooler and wetter conditions for most of the month. If true, this will affect last-minute cropping plan decisions and whether or not to keep winter wheat.

Farm trucks needed for pesticide class: Two farm trucks, one with a trailer of spray and/or fuel tanks or with pesticide spraying equipment, are needed for a March 17 class at Monroe County Community College. Farmers who volunteer to bring either a straight truck with a tank in the bed or a semi-tractor and trailer will have their $35 fee waived. The class runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and has been granted six re-certification credits. The class will include a morning truck discussion and walk around with two officers from the Motor Carrier Division of the Michigan State Police.
