    2016 Corn Variety Trial Summary from Jay, Florida

    Santa Rosa County is not a major corn producer, as compared to the Midwest, but farmers there do grow 600-800 acres of field corn each year. These producers plant corn as a summer rotational crop, some for cattle feed, and a significant acreage is planted and sold to our wildlife enthusiasts.

    Don’t Rush Wildlife Plot Plantings – Wait on Rain

    It should be too late in the year for an article about cool season food plots; they should already be up and growing, at the very least planted. It’s November, archery season has begun, the fall food plot ship should have already sailed. However, due to the incredibly dry weather we’ve had for the past …

    Planning Ahead for Dove Season

    Every Fall, sportsmen of all ages set their sights on the mourning dove (Zenaida macroura), one of the most widely hunted migratory birds in the United States.  Because it is migratory bird, management falls under federal and state regulations.  Annually, Extension agents receive questions about the legality of putting out …

However, some ponds are used for farming needs, whether for irrigation or livestock purposes. In either case, ponds can provide excellent fishing environments, if managed properly.

    A good philosophy to have when thinking …
