It has been an interesting spring. Cool soil temperatures seemed to hold on later in the spring than usual, delaying planting of some of our summer crops. When we talk about damage from cool soil temperatures to germinating cotton seedlings there are several areas of concern, especially if the soil is unusually damp. The first area comes in the form of seedling death from freezing. Read more on these concerns from this AgFax.com article.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) today published the 2014 Agricultural Chemical Use survey data for corn and fall potatoes. The information released includes on-farm fertilizer use, pesticide use, and pest management practices for these crops for the 2014 crop year, beginning after the 2013 harvest and ending after the 2014 harvest.

Three research groups have recently reported on advances with crop diseases resistance. These related to detecting novel disease resistance genes and the successful transfer of resistance into wheat, soybean, and potato. The work, in each case, was supported by the 2Blades Foundation. The organization has a remit to discover, advance and deliver genetic improvements in crop disease resistance. The work is of importance due to the growing rise in the spread of plant pathogens. Plant pathogens cause global crop losses estimated at around 15 percent, extending, in some cases, to total crop failure. Pathogens can be battled through the use of agrochemicals and with developing resistant crop varieties. However, many types of pathogens can adapt and resists these measures. One way forwards, is through genetics in order to create durable genetic resistances. This is the basis of the newly reported successes.

The recently released U.S. International Trade Commission's report on the potential economic impact of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) provides many examples of the benefits this free trade agreement would provide. The National Potato Council (NPC) has previously touted the expanded trade opportunities and lowered tariffs that the agreement would ensure. The International Trade Commission's report confirms that lower tariffs on exports would allow potato growers and exporters to meet the rising demand in the Asia-Pacific region by making U.S. potatoes and potato products more competitive in those markets.
