Local artist's mural Continued from page 1 One would imagine that special tools and supplies are needed to create a mural that is long-lasting in the ex- tremes of Nebraska weather. However. as the employees at a local lumber yard did their research and discovered. Swartzendruber requires no more than exterior paint and generalized brushes to complete her works of art history. "Sealant is not used," said Swartzendruber. "The sealer tends to cause an outdoor mural to wear faster." Much like the early artists of our world, Swartzendruber uses the sim- plest of tools and supplies to create works of art on readily available sur- faces where they can be seen and en- joyed by not just the town's inhabit- ants. but those who visit and share an interest in the rich history of Nebraska. model and can't predict perfectly what will happen. . Again. I'll repeat it's just a model and is looking at "a perfect year with Jenny's REESources Well. it was great to take a week off and the weather sure was nice in Colo- rado! It seems like it was a poor week to miss in regards to crop happenings, though. Several of you have been asking for a month now for me to run the Hyhrid-Maize model for 2011 corn yield predictions and I just haven't taken the time to relearn how to input the current weather file and run the simulations-but I did tonight. In my May 1 column, I was show- ing impact of planting date on yield- essentially we weren't seeing any based on the models. At the time I showed potential yield results of; 113 day hybrid planted April 15 vs. May 1 vs. May 10. the frost risk-incre/sed from 10. 17. and 21 percent respectively with average yields in a "perfect year- no limiting conditions" of 248, 254, and 244 bushels per acre respectively. For a 110 day hybrid planted the same days, yields ranged from 233,242, and no limiting conditions." I already knew we wouldn't be looking at record yields. The corn had looked even and good for the most part once it got taller, but it hid the many problems including stand problems from rain washing, residue, Pythium, greensnap, etc. In many ways I wish I was here last week so I could better understand what weather condi- tions were to explain why the model is showing a sharp yield reduction after this past week. Looking at the actual weather data (from Clay Center sta- which were similar to the predicted yields I listed above when I ran the simulations for planting dates. For the 2011 season, a 113 day hybrid planted April 15 vs. May 1 vs. May 10 based on in-season weather conditions at this point may yield 221, 225, and 236 bushels per acre respectively. A 110 day hybrid planted the same days based on in-season weather conditions at this point may yield 214. 208, and 225 bushels per acre. I don't mean to get anyone bummed about this year' s crop- again, this is just a model! I'm just sharing several have asked me to and it did such a good job of predicting in- season yields last year. It's also pre- tion), nothing really stands out to me dicting maturity really early-within the other than one 100 degree day and solar radiation greatly dropping off first two weeks of September this year which can affect grain fill and ulti- another day.
