Paulding County livestock exhibitors are beginning to prepare for the 2013 Fair Season with Paulding County being the first fair in Ohio. This year the fair runs June 10th- 15th at the Paulding County Fairgrounds.
According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service, 70% of the winter wheat stands in Ohio were rated good to excellent going into the winter. The other 29% was rated fair and only 1% fell into the poor category. As the winter wheat begins to green-up, farmers need to be aware of the condition of their wheat stands. This time of year marks the start of possible stand losses from heaving, a situation where ground freezing and thawing pushes the plant crowns and roots to the surface. The result of heaving is the desiccation and eventual death of the plants. Another concern is stand loss in fields due to ponding caused by very wet soil conditions and/or poor drainage.
