Maine Grain and Oilseed Newsletter, September 2013

This has been a frustrating harvest and fall sowing season to date due to the uncooperative weather we’ve all been experiencing. Reviewing weather data from Caribou, Maine for the season, we are significantly above normal for precipitation for the growing season, and through the harvest/fall sowing period of August 15-September 15, the longest consecutive stretch of days without precipitation was three days. The September issue of the Maine Grain and Oilseed Newsletter contains helpful articles about “Late Planting Fall Grains” and “Cover Crops to Protect Soils and Improve Crop Quality.”
