I " I II Post Rock Answers By Scott Chapman, Post Rock' Extension I have a swarm ofbees ina tree in my yard. what do Fneed to do ?' I had three calls on bee swarms last week. This is the time of year this occurs most often. First realize they are probably not a threat. The :"mean" Africanized bees referred to as killer bees because of there aggressive pro- tectlve instincts are only as far north as Webber Wide Awake 4-H members took food donations to the Jewell county Food Pantry on Friday, as one of their service projects. Members participating in the delivery included Jillian Worm, (left); Michelle Unruh, (right) and Elizabeth and Adaline Quakenbush (front). The food pantry representative Pastor Tessa Zehring at the Methodist Church, MankatO, in the center. keepers willing to remove swarms, unfortunately Saline County is the clos- est on the list. Call one of our offices for names of these beekeepers. Re- member bees are an indispensable re- source in the production of many fruits. vegetables, and nuts not to mention honey. I recommend calling a bee- keeper or have patience, they will move on. Soil testing is becoming increas- ingly important for district producers. Sixteen nutrients have been deter- mined essential for plant growth. (Some are never limiting in nature, plants receive carbon, hydrogen and oxygen from the air). When I was in school, one analogy used to,show the tmpor- tance of balanced fertility was: "a chain is only as strong as its weakest link." If each of the 16 essential nutrients is a link in that chain, with 15 made of hardened steel and one link a rubber band. the entire chain is no stronger -than the rubber band. Conditions and 15 nutrients may appear right for 60 bushel wheat, but ifthereis only enough sulfur for 20 bushel, you are going to harvest 20 bushel wheat.

Double cropping is remov- ing more nutrients. No-till nutrients are primarily added to the top three to four inches of the soil. Phosphorus and sulfur are two nutrients being used much faster than many producers are replacing in current fertility programs and can easily limit production. How much phosphorus are you ap- plying? How much sulfur? We've had some good years, a 60 bushel wheat crop fllowed by 40 bushel double crop beans removed 65 pounds of phos- phorus and 13 pounds of stilfur. Once the soil reserve is gone. unless re- placed yields suffer. Chloride and zinc arealso limiting yields of some crops in the district. On the flip side. the last soil test through my office had phosphorus levels over 30 ppm, no phosphorus fertilizer is recommended unless below 20 ppm. so spend fertilizer dollars on other nu- trients or other fields. After wheat is harvested, consider soil testing. It's a waste to put 100 pounds of nitrogen down for next year' s wheat if the yield is limited to 30 "bushel by a shortage of phosphorus. sulfur, or chloride. Each Post Rock Extension offices has a soil probe to checkout and in- structions on taking a good soil test. Samples are submitted to K-State's Soil Testing Laboratory• Considering the investment in fertilizer a soil test to guide that fertilizer purchase is rela-, tively inexpensive The basic test for pH, phosphorus, potassmm andzinc is $8. A profile package testing nitrogen, sulfur and chloride is another $7. add organic matter for $3. For an invest- ment of $18 a guide for the fertilizer investment. we sell office .... supplies!
