OSU's Dr. Kim Anderson says Producers Need to Document Everything

Tue, 06 Sep 2011 09:43:26 CDT

OSU's Dr. Kim Anderson says Producers Need to Document Everything With cooler temperatures finally showing up across much of Oklahoma, many producers should be preparing grain drills as we move further into September and October. However, the lack of moisture is causing concern when it comes to planting winter canola and hard red winter wheat. Dr. Kim Anderson, Grain Marketing Specialist from Oklahoma State University, says while production this year is important, having proper paperwork is important as well.

The crop insurance dates for winter canola at September 10 to October 10, which is quickly approaching. Anderson says this is the year that producers need to make sure all paperwork is done properly, as well as, make sure that all records and forms are filled out at the Farm Service Agency and with crop insurance agents. Also, for crop insurance to go into effect, producers have to dust in their wheat crop and it must be planted before November 1, says Anderson.

Some producers are thinking about not top-dressing their crop this year, which Anderson says will require a soil test by the producer. Producers need to show and have proof that they have adequate nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels in their soil to establish a stand of wheat says Anderson.

Overall, the most important aspect of this crop year for producers is to keep records, fill out paperwork, and soil test because this is likely to be the year of insurance rather than production says Anderson.
