This week’s featured video was a CBS News report on the damage from Hurricane Irma to Citrus in Southwest Florida.  The story features Paul Meador, Citrus Grower and Gene McAvoy, UF/IFAS Regional Vegetable Agent, who were out earlier this week assessing damage to crops and citrus in Hendry County.  McAvoy estimates there were more than $ 2 billion dollars in damages in Southwest Florida where the eye-wall of Hurricane Irma churned up groves, ranches, and vegetable farms.

Friday Feature: Southeast Hay Contest Video

Friday Feature:  Southeast Hay Contest Video

The Southeast Hay Contest was started 14 years ago to showcase the excellent quality hay that is produced in the South.  If you take pride in producing high quality hay, this is an opportunity to see how the best hay you produce compares to other farms in the region.  This week’s featured video was produced by Massey Ferguson, the major sponsor of the contest, to help spread the word about the Southeast Hay Contest.

It is not too late to enter this year’s contest.  Contact your local County Extension Office and make an appointment to have your hay or balage tested.  Entries must be received by the UGA Forage Lab by 5:00 PM Thursday, September 21, 2017.  Entries must be signed by your local county agent to verify production.  Rules and entry information are all available on the SE Hay Contest website:  http://blog.caes.uga.edu/sehaycontest/  Winners will be recognized at the 40th annual Sunbelt Ag Expo, in Moultrie, GA on Tuesday, October 17th.

Peanut and Cotton Harvest Video 2014

Peanut and Cotton Harvest Video 2014

It’s the beginning of November, and so far the weather conditions have been great for harvesting peanuts and cotton. In Jackson and surrounding counties, peanut harvest is wrapping up and cotton harvest is in full swing. Yields have been variable across the region. Irrigated crops have had good to excellent yields, while some non-irrigated fields have been very poor, with a few having to be abandoned.

Overall this would have been a good year for peanut and cotton farmers, if the prices had not been so depressed. Although the economic outlook does not look good for commodity prices, farmers are doing what it takes to get the crop in and are staying optimistic about what the future holds.

Take a look at some harvest video from the variety trials at MacArthur Farms and J&G Farms in Jackson County. We appreciate their support!

Researches in the University of Florida IFAS plant breeding program have developed a number of new blueberry, and other fruit, varieties.  Image Credit: UF IFAS EDIS

Florida Crossroads made a 28 minute video entitled “Seeds of Change” featuring the IFAS plant breeding efforts to create new varieties of blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes, and other crops, and the ways these programs have influenced Florida industry.  For those of you who are familiar with our plant breeding programs, you’ll enjoy seeing some of our scientists on the screen.  For those who are not familiar with UF/IFAS development of new plant varieties, it is well worth the watch and I’d encourage you to do so.
