News Releases

University of Minnesota Extension’s most recent statewide news releases and Ag News Wire columns.

Corn reaching maturity about Oct. 1 will normally dry slowly in the field due to cooler outside temperatures. Standing corn in the field may dry about 1.5 to 3 percentage points per week during October and 1 to 1.5 per week or less during November, assuming normal Upper Midwest weather conditions.

As is always the case, the frost damage appears to be highly variable based on local climate conditions, crop maturity and topographical features.

A Sept. 26 deadline with the Farm Service Agency (FSA) will impact some producers, as a result of the 2014 Farm Bill.

University of Minnesota Extension begins a series of free dairy education seminars this month to help farmers make decisions brought about by the 2014 Farm Bill.

The Center for Farm Financial Management, part of University of Minnesota Extension, has just released a tool to help producers and landlords evaluate alternative land rental arrangements. FairRent for the web is a new and improved web version of the FairRent desktop software that CFFM has distributed for more than 20 years.

Every day, in more ways that we are aware, agriculture impacts our lives. From the food we eat to the cloths we wear, to the machines and materials we use to work and play - we all depend on a thriving agriculture industry. Minnesota farm families are a vital part of the nation's agriculture industry.
