County Agriculture Educator

  • FSMA Produce Safety Course in Mankato
    The University of Minnesota Extension is partnering with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture to host a FSMA Produce Safety Rule training in Mankato on January 23rd.
  • Conifer Madness
    Thirty five to forty percent of my service calls deal with trees, and the vast majority of those calls consist of evergreens that often do not live up to their name.
  • New Dicamba Application Rules
    All individuals applying dicamba products must undergo special product label-required training in order to comply with Minnesota Pesticide Control Law. Because these products are now Restricted Use Pesticides, all applicators of these products must also be a certified Private pesticide applicator or a licensed Commercial or Noncommercial pesticide applicator.

  • Solarization in the Garden
    Solarization is where transparent plastic (2 to 6 mil) covers a garden bed and uses trapped heat to kill weed seedlings (and some diseases). Common in southern states, more temperate areas such as Maine, Indiana, and Minnesota have found some use in this process and are continuing to explore how to make it more effective.
  • Oats: A Domesticated Weed
    In their day, oats were not a weed suppressor, but a weed. Before agriculture as we know it, wild grasses such as oats (Avena sp.), wheat (Triticum sp.), and barley (Hordeum sp.) often grew in the same area and were occasionally munched on by the earliest humans. Over time, people selected barley and wheat for domestication, leaving oats in the dust until fairly recently.
  • Mother of Thousands: A Plant Factory
    Mother of thousands, a succulent native to Madagascar, has a unique method of reproduction in the plant world. Certain cells on the leaf margin spontaneously turn into entirely separate organisms, called plantlets.
