This money comes from a FEMA program to provide fire departments with essential gear. The Department will replace turnout gear (outer jackets, pants, and boots; pictured at left) and to purchase new face masks and air tanks (pic- tured above). Some of the department's turnout gear, currently used but not directly in fires, is as much as 25 years old (15 years beyond the recommended use). Staff photos by Jean Doran Matua. Crop prospects with hail damage By Dan Martens, U of M Extension Hail caused crop damage Fri- day afternoon, June 25, in Stearns County. From what I had the chance to see on Sunday eve- ning south and southwest of Cold Spring and to hear in phone con- versations with farmers so far, the hail appears to have been along line from about three miles south and west of Cold Spring in Wake- field Township and east through parts of Maine Prairie, Fairhaven and Lynden Townships, and into Sherburne and Wright County in the Clear Lake areas. There might be some damage in the Rockville and St. Augusta area also. Most of the corn and soy- bean crop is showing signs of new growth and yield loss may be in the range of 10 to 15 percent through most of the affected area. There are variations in the inten- sity of the hail and severity of the damage. Some questions have been asked about spraying hail dam- aged corn with a fungicide to pro- tect the crop from disease issues. LI of M Extension state corn spe- cialist Jeff Coulter and Extension plant pathology specialist Dean Malvick say that studies in Illinois and Minnesota have shown that there is a low chance of getting an economic return for spraying fun- gicides on hail damaged corn or soybeans. They recommend not spraying with fungicides because of hail damage at this time. If there are plant issues following hail, they are more likely to be caused by bacteria than fungus. Warmer, drier weather after a hail event reduces the chance of having dis- ease issues. Fungicides sprayed now would only have an affect (if any) on leaf material exposed now and would not benefit all of the leaf material that emerges from this point forward. A barley field south of Cold Spring along County Road 49 showed significant leaf loss, some broken heads, some kernels shelled from the seed head. The barley bordered between milk and dough stage. The field could be useful to combine yet. With a thinned- out canopy, there may be enough weed growth to make combin- ing more challenging and result in straw with more weeds than pre- ferred. Severely damaged small grain fields could be salvaged as a small grain forage silage crop put up as baleage or in a bag. For alfalfa fields, if there is less than 50 percent of the terminal stems and growth buds showing damage, we suggest waiting for the remaining crop to grow and mature based on the expected harvest schedule. If the crop is bro- ken down so badly that it would be hard to make a swath that could be picked up, it will probably start: adequate new growth from the, crown without cutting. People are welcome with fur -I ther questions at the Stearns: County Extension office (320) 255-. 6169 if a local call to St. Cloud, or: (800) 450-6171. You're welcome: to call Dan Martens, Extensionl Educator for crop production,, stationed at the Benton County Office, at (320) 968-5077 if a local call to Foley, or (800) 964-4929. FSA encourages county committee participation The Farm Service Agency is looking for candidates for the farmer-elected County Commit- tee from groups that have not been active with the agency's commit- tee in the past. The 2010 Stearns County FSA election will be held in Local Administrative Area (LAA) #1, which includes the following townships: Brockway, Collegeville, Fairhaven, LeSauk, Luxemburg, Lynden, Maine Prairie, Rockville, St. Augusta, St. Cloud, St. Joseph, St. Wendel, and Wakefield. This area is presently repre- sented by Joseph W. Krippner. Nomination petitions for can- didates must be filed with the Farm Service Agency's local office byAug. 2, 2010. The FSA County Committee is an important link between the national USDA program and the needs of local farmers. As part of the committee, members will make important decisions on local programs, such as commodity price support loans, establishing allotments and yields, and eligi- bility for farm loans, conservation activities, and disaster assistance. The committee is also USDA's eyes and ears in the community, and local farmers' voice in USDA. FSA is looking for small oper- ators, truck farmers, and people who grow specialty crops, women, and anyone who has not had an active voice with the County Com- mittee in the past. For the County Committee system to work as it should, all of local agriculture needs to be represented, and all farmers need a voice. If you need further informa- tion about the County Committee or how you can help, contact the Stearns County FSA Office at (320) 251-7800, Ext. 2. You can now order rubber stamps, seals and signs.
