Page 8- Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012 THE JOHNSON PIONEER JOHNSON, KS 67855 USDA Natural NRCS Resources C onsew00ion Service EQIP Provides Opportuni- ties for Rangeland Concerns Sign Up Cutoff Date Friday, November 16, 2012 Natural Resources Conser- vation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist Eric B. Banks, announced that the ap- plication evaluation cutoff date will be Friday, Novem- ber 16, 2012, for the Environ- mental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). "EQIP is a very popular pro- gram in Kansas," said Banks. "And with the drought condi- tions this past summer, I want to remind producers and ranchers that EQIP provides opportunities for producers and ranchers to address re- source concerns, such as plant health and vigor, inadequate livestock water, noxious weeds, and brush invasion." State Rangeland Manage- ment Specialist David Kraft said that due to the extended period of less than desirable moisture which Kansas pro- ducers have received on graz- ing lands, opportunities exist to address these resource con- cerns and also focus on mini- mizing the impacts of the drought. Grazing plans as a part of a larger conservation plan enables producers to identify forage production po- tential as well as production deficiencies in the midst of a drought. Keeping plants healthy and providing plant communities the chance to not only persist or survive, but to actually improve during drought is the focal point. This approach allows produc- ers to see quicker responses from their grazing lands as cli- matic conditions improve. EQIP is a voluntary pro- gram that provides financial and technical assistance to ag- ricultural producers through contracts up to a maximum term of ten years in length. These contracts provide finan- cial assistance to help plan and implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns and provide opportunities to improve soil, water, air, plant, animal, and related resources on agricul- tural land, such as cropland and rangeland, and non-indus- trial private forestland. I know fall is a busy time and NRCS wants everyone to have the opportunity to de- velop a conservation plan and submit an application in time," said Banks. Applications are accepted year round, but those received by Friday, November 16, 2012, will be evaluated for fis- cal year 2013 funding. Appli- Ten Tips From Page 7 7) Follow the manufac- turer&apos;s directions for cleaning coils and the interior and ex- terior of the appliance. 8) Use all appliances as di- rected by the manufacturer. Take the time to read the manual when the appliance is purchased, and review it pe- riodically. For example, a re- frigerator or freezer should be about 2/3 full (but not crowded) so air can circulate and cool the foods stored within. Overcrowding gener- ally reduces efficiency. 9) Minimize pre-heating time when using an appliance, and use a microwave oven in- stead of heating a stove, when: possible. '+ ': : 10) If replacing an appliance, check energy efficiency be- fore buying.

Scientists Encourage Citizens To Heed Signs Of Climate Change- 2012 On Pace To Be Warmest Year On Record In U,S, If ever there was a year to make one think about climate change, it may be this year. "July marked the 36th con- secutive July and 329th con- secutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average," said Johannes Feddema, professor of geography at the University of Kansas. "The last below- average temperature July was July 1976 and the last below- average temperature month was February 1985." Feddema, who was speak- ing at the recent "Adapting to a Changing Climate on the Central Great Plains Confer- ence" hosted by Kansas State University, said that so far, 2012 is the 10th warmest year on record globally, but in the U.S. it is the warmest year on record. "Farmers already know how dry it is, coming into planting season in the context of their crops," he said. "We as a so- Store Bulbs For Planting Next Year - Including Gladiolus, Dahlia, Tuberous Begonia And Others said. "Then remove any ex- cess soil and pack them in peat moss, vermiculite or pedite." To prevent decay, make sure the bulbs do not touch each other during storage. Upham said dusting the bulbs with a fungicide also prevents rotting. Most bulbs should be stored at about 40 degrees Fahrenheit, except for cala- dium, which should be stored between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Gardeners should store bulbs that are not winter hardy and save them for planting next year. K-State Research and Ex- tension horticulturalist Ward Upham recommended dig- ging up gladiolus, caladium, dahlia, tuberous begonia, calla lily and canna lily bulbs after frost browns the foliage. "Allow them to dry for about a week in a shady, well- ventilated site, such as a ga- rage or tool shed," Upham Legal Publication (First Published in THE JOHNSON PIONEER, on the 125th day of October, 2012) It N .t....,, I ...... _, F 7,a: ..... i,,d-"- ,,,,,,,,,,' 1 ,, i, 7.:Z._7.Z '[ .. 1117 7:: =--': :---: ? 7" Ill Wl al!
