|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
The 2011 edition of the Golden Plains Area Agricultural Handbook is currently in production and orders are now being taken.
This publication is a permanent and often-used item in many farm, ranch and agribusiness offices in northeastern Colorado. This resource book contains the latest university research for high plains agriculture in Colorado. Most of the research results presented in the handbook are conducted on local farms and ranches in the area.
Subscribers will find information regarding crop production, water management, crop pathology and weed management information, along with insect control, horticulture, weather, livestock cost of production and crop cost of production information.
In total, subscribers will find approximately 150 pages of current research information required to make informed decisions for agricultural operations.
Pricing for the handbook is a tiered pricing system for multiple subscriptions and the handbook is available in print copy or CD version.
The CD version has the added benefit of spreadsheet templates and other resources useful in farm and ranch decision-making processes. The deadline for receiving a break on the subscription price is Feb. 15.
Order forms are available at every Golden Plains Area Extension office or from the web site at http://goldenplains.colostate.edu. Send orders to: Washington County Extension Office, 181 Birch, Akron, CO 80720.
