Enterprise budget for intermediate rainfall region available
The Extension publication “Enterprise Budgets: Wheat & Canola Rotations in Eastern Washington Intermediate Rainfall (12-16″) Zone (Oilseed Series)” is now available as well as the accompanying Excel spreadsheet workbook. This budget and the low rainfall version with its workbook are powerful tools to calculate and compare the short and long-term economics of including canola in a cereal rotation.
SARE Cover Crop Project Report
Innovative, dryland grain farmers in Lincoln and Spokane Counties, WA, want to include a cover crop or companion crop in their rotation to raise soil organic matter levels, break disease cycles, suppress weeds, penetrate soil compaction layers, and improve soil fertility by fixing atmospheric nitrogen.
