Host Richard Hentschel discusses spring farming with Russ Higgins, Agriculture Educator. Farmers are dealing with weather just like the homeowner. While corn and beans are not impacted by late winter and spring weather, but winter wheat clearly is with our early warm temperatures. Hopefully our recent cold weather has not damaged or killed the winter wheat crop. Winter weeds are not normally not a problem but can be vectors for certain diseases and pest insects. Soil moisture around the state have been quite variable in parts of the state, very wet to droughty.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
