Court okays repairs to Expo Center

The Ochiltree County Commissioners Court, at the meeting on Monday, June 10, approved repairs to the Expo Center. They also authorized a request for bids for the county-owned farmland.

The repairs for the Expo include repairs to the east wall, coming in at just over $33,000. The approval also included repairs to several windows that will increase the cost over $8,000. Jim Seybert will do the repairs.

The lease came due for the two pieces property owned by the county at the airport. The two parcels have previously been leased separately, one by cash lease and the other by crop share.

The county will lease the property as a package of one acreage as a cash lease. They authorized the auditor to advertise for a request for bids .

Other items on the agenda were tabled for consideration at a later time.

Also at the meeting, the commissioners approved the county auditor’s report and budget amendments. They also approved bills for payment.

Water district, AgriLife promote cotton education

“Cotton and Conservation” is the title of a new series of videos being developed by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and North Plains Groundwater Conservation District.

Dr. Jourdan Bell, Agri-Life Extension agronomist in Amarillo, said she is excited about this new partnership that will report on cotton development and irrigation conservation at demonstration sites throughout the water district.

“We’ll use the video series to describe the growth stage of the cotton, any insect or disease pressure and report on irrigation, soil moisture and any management variables,” said Kirk Welch, North Plains Ground-water Conservation District assistant general manager, public outreach, Dumas. “This will help producers in the North Plains better manage their cotton in hopes of saving water while maintaining or increasing yield.”

Wheat harvest could be best since 2007

For the local area, June 20 is the average time for wheat harvest to start, which will start for us in a couple of weeks.

According to Ochiltree ounty AgriLife Extension agent Scott Strawn, about 100.000 acres have been planted to wheat.

With all the rain coming to the area, the main problem has been hail damage to the crop. Strawn said that hail damage was the main problem, with several fields being completely lost. He said this would be about 10% of the crop.

Strawn said that as far as averages go, this crop has the potential to have the best average yield since 2007.

He also added that with two weeks to go before harvest will start, lots of things could happen and there could be some changes.

Strawn said that about half of the normal corn crop for the area has been planted, and added that there was still plenty of time, two weeks, for the producers to plant more corn if they wanted to add to their corn acreage.
