Fertigation

I am interested in the potential of irrigation and specifically fertigation for our corn/soybean ground in the Grundy/Tama county area. Could anyone give me some information about this practice in Iowa and the promises or pitfalls it may hold?

Have our our robins and wrens already left?

We live in a rural area and have noticed that we no longer have robins, we have had as many as 15 wrens, but now they're gone too. Isn't it early for the birds to be migrating?

grapes dropping off before ready

I believe my vine is a concord grape. Was here when bought house 50 yrs ago. Noticed 3 yrs ago all were gone in August so I have covered it the last 2 yrs so birds could not get at them. Looked like a good crop this year and I had to pick them today because I had already lost most of the grapes. Have had a problem with japanese beetles. The vine has full sun all day. I don't especially water it and never have fertilized it. Has always done fine until last few years.

cover crop for a home gardener

What would be an easy cover crop for me? I don't till my garden any longer but would like to get the added benefit from a cover crop. I would prefer something I could possibly cover up with straw over the winter rather than something I would have to turn under. Thank you. Carol

Jalapeno Jelly

Please explain to me why jalapeƱo jelly is on the not allowed farmers market list in Iowa. It has fresh peppers and plenty of vinegar and sugar. I don't see what could possibly go wrong with it. It is also water bath preserved for 15 minutes. I also wonder about basil jelly. It has plenty of sugar but no vinegar and contains no fruit or vegetable.

leasing hay ground

I am trying to figure out the best way to price hay ground for lease. This has already been planted (about 60% alfalfa and the rest brome, timothy, and orchard). I simply want to lease it out to someone who can then take the hay off of it for the season. I looked at lease prices for hay ground and they are very low compared to what I could get, even if I hired everything done. This is fertile ground and frequently produces 200- 215 bushel corn. I'm putting it in hay to idle it awhile, and to ease some logistical problems. It's 8 acres. Any suggestion for a method or price?
