Paid obituary I[ Post Rock Answers By Sandra Wick, Post Rock Extension (Last Weeks News) With fall harvest in full swing, soil compaction may be the furthest thing on your mind, but simply reviewing the guidelines, may help to reduce the impact of your large farm equipment during harvest. If you have been fortunate to re- ceive some of the fall rains, your fields may be soft and ruts can or are being cut into the soil during harvest. These ruts leave the soil surface rough and have severe compaction below them. This compaction can especially im- pede the crop's roots next season and increase runoffbecause of reduced in- filtration. Generally, if the combines and grain carts aren't leaving a rut, compaction isn't much of an issue from the heavy equipment. Compaction is the loss of pore space between soil particles and occurs when that space is squeezed out of the soil and reappears somewhere else, such as in the form of a rut. The results are decreased permeability, moisture and nutrient stress, and the reduced ex- change of gases. If a rut wasn't formed, there was enough soil structure present to support the weight without causing additional compaction. There are different types of com- paction, but at harvest time, deep com- paction is the type that tends to occur. Deep compaction is related to the maxi- mum axle load, and is not reduced by distributing the weight across more tires or larger tires. Deep compaction is nearly impossible to remove with tillage as it occurs at a depth that is beyond the depth that most tillage implements can reach. According to DeAnn Presley, K- State Research and Extension soil management specialist, "A moist soil can be compacted to a depth of greater than 18 inches by a 10 ton axle load." Much agronomic research has been completedon subsoil compaction, with the conclusion being that axle loads greater than 10 tons per axle can be very destructive. These yield effects will be most severe in a dry year, and less so in a wetter year, since soil strength increases as soils dry. At harvest is when most fields ex- perience the heaviest loads from com- bines, silage harvest, and from grain carts. Presley further points out to con- sider that the weight of a 1,050 bushel grain cart 4s approximately 19,700 pounds when empty. Filled with 1,050 bushels of grain, weighing approxi- mately 56 pounds per bushel, adds 58,800 pounds. That's a total of 78,500 poUnds. Assume that the grain cart transfers about 8,000 pounds to the tractor through the tongue of the wagon. The grand total for this example is "/0,500 pounds. If the grain cart has two axles, that equals 17.6 tons pe r axle. A 12 row combine full of corn exceeds 20 tons per axle. Producers must, of course, traffic fields at harvest time. Two key points for minimizing damage from heavy axle loads are to limit traffic when fields are wet, and to confine the ma- jority of traffic to end rows. Producers should practice con- trolled traffic to reduce the areas in the field with wheel traffic compaction. "Eighty to 85 percent of soil compac- tion damage is done with the first pass of the tires," according to Paul Jasa, UNL extension engineer. "If additional passes are made on the same traffic lanes, little additional compaction oc- curs.

By using the same traffic lanes year after year, the soil structure and water infiltration in the "untraffcked" areas greatly improve." Compaction can be managed, not eliminated, and the area subjected to compaction can be minimized. The concept is to separate traffic zones from root zones. Controlled traffic keeps compaction where it is less det- rimental to root development and up- take of nutrients and water. Fertilizer placement and furrow irrigation prae- rices can be modified as these traffic zones are established and the traffic lanes are known. '1"o minimize wheel compaction at harvest time, grain carts should be fol- lowing the same tracks as the com- bine," said Jasa. "A lot of grain cart drivers think they should move over a few rows and spread out compaction, but this will only compact more of the field. Likewise, grain trucks shouldn't be driven in the field as the axle loads and tire pressures are not suitable for soils." If ruts were cut at harvest, wait until the soil is dry to smooth them out to avoid causing additional compaction. This smoothing operation may be a light tillage operation next spring be- fore planting. Deeper tillage in the spring will usually cause more com- blessed with throughout the late sum- mer and early fail, nitrates are still a concern in our forages. Many people associate high nitrate levels with drought stressed plants. This is true, but there are other factors that can contribute to high nitrate levels that cause concern on a yearly basis. Be- fore we discuss those factors, let's gain a better understanding of what nitrates are. What are nitrates and why are they a concern ? Nitrate is a natural product formed from the oxidation of organic com- pounds. Most of the soil nitrogen ab- sorbed by plant roots is in nitrate form. Normally, nitrate in a plant is rapidly converted to amino acids by the en- zyme nitrate reductase. This reduction requires energy from sunlight, adequate water, nutrients, and favorable tem- perature, When plants are stressed, the nitrate-to-protein conversion is dis- rupted and nitrates begin to accumu- late. Nitrate toxicity is a misnomer be- cause nitrite (NO2), not nitrate (NO3), is poisonous to animals. After a plant is eaten, rumen bacteria rapidly reduce nitrates in the forage to nitrites. Nor- mally, the nitrites are converted to ammonia and used by rumen microor- ganisms as a nitrogen source. If nitrate intake is faster than its breakdown to ammonia, however, nitrites will begin was accompanied by his grandsons, this year? Drought stress is only one of the many factors that can contribute to high nitrate levels. Drought, hail, frost, cloudy weather, or soil fertility imbal- ance can all cause the stress to trigger high levels. Nitrate reduction occurs in young leaves and requires light as an energy source. Shaded plants lack suf- ficient energy to convert nitrate to amino acids. Plants growing in field comers may be shaded and are fre- quently high in nitrates. Extended pe- riods of cloud weather increase nitrate content. Dangerously high levels can occur when wet, overcast days follow a severe drought. Conditions such as hail, light frost, or plant disease can damage plant leaf area and reduce pho- tosynthetic activity. With less avail- able energy, nitrate reduction is inhib- ited and nitrates accumulate in the plant. This does not mean these forages are always toxic, nor does it mean that high-nitrate hay can't be fed safely. The purpose is to raise awareness of testing these feeds for nitrates in a lab to determine how to feed them safely. If faced with this, gradually adapt cattle to high nitrate feeds. Nitrate toxicity frequently occurs in animals without prior exposure to nitrates. If nitrate levels in the forage are not excessively high the animal will usually be able to adapt somewhat to increasing amounts in the feed.

It's best to build soil structure and not drive on wet soils if possible.

Post Rock Answers By Neil Cares, Post Rock Extension During my last column we covered the topic of prussic acid. As promised this week we will discuss nitrates in forages. Despite the plentiful rainfall most areas of the district have been taining methemoglobin cannot trans- port oxygen, and the animal essen- tially dies from lack of oxygen. What plants do I need to be cau- tious of?. Nearly all plants contain nitrate, but some species are more prone to nitrate accumulation than others. The sorghum family and millets are notori- ous nitrate accumulators. Some cereal crops that are commonly used in graz- ing such as oats and triticale can also accumulate high levels of nitrates. Another species of concern is brassi- cas such as turnips and radishes which are becoming more and more popular to grazeespecially in covercrop mixes. We have had plentiful moisture, why are you concerned about nitrates Another common method of utiliz- hag high nitrate forages is through dilu- tion. Once you have tested for nitrates and know the nitrate levels, blend high nitrate forages with grain or low nitrate forages to dilute the high concentra- tions. It is importantto note that, ni- trate levels do not change once the forage is harvested. High nitrate hay baled last year, will still be high this year. Bottom line is always test suspect forages whether you are grazing them or they are baled. A nitrate test is far cheaper than the cost of a dead animal. Your local extension office can assist you with nitrate testing and aid you in utilizing these forages if the test results are high.
