Farmers throughout Central Texas and the Blacklands region heard the latest tips on weed control, new cotton technology and forage management at the 51st Stiles Farm Field Day held recently at the Stiles Farm Foundation.

Dr. Larry Redmon, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service forage specialist, College Station, advised attendees to get a soil test before applying fertilizer on hay meadows.

“If you are cutting hay, apply the soil test recommendations,” he said. “A dipstick tells me do I have enough oil in my car, and if I do not have enough, I need to add some. A soil test is the same simple concept and tells me if I don’t have enough certain nutrients, then I need to add some. Fertilizer is so expensive and we want to make sure we apply the correct amounts.”
