Last Thursday and Friday mornings got pretty cold – did the wind help? We will find out in 7-9 days for wheat if the cold spell was long enough to winter kill wheat. Look at the low spots in your field to see if there is any yellowing. If there is take some random plants, cut open the stem to find the growing point – if it is brown the wheat is gone; if the growing point is green you are okay. Also, check the greenhouses for cold damage… some cold air may get in from unknown leaks in and around the plastic. Tobacco can grow out of cold damage if it is not severe. Fieldwork will continue this week – most corn will not be planted until after April 15 due to normal last freeze date. This week will be dry at least until Thursday so there should be quite a bit of fieldwork done if dry enough. I am catching Tobacco Budworm moths and Black Cutworm moths so the moths are flying in. Tobacco planting is not that far off so keep an eye on young transplants, especially for cutworm.
