WOT’S up? Oh, wait….
Let’s try again…the “SWOT” analysis initiated by Chris Green at the 10th IOC has been completed, and is presented in the “Research Reports” section, as are three new T3/Oat tutorials from Clare Saied.
I also came across two documents of special interest published on-line by the Borlaug Global Rust Initiative: both volumes of “The Cereal Rusts”, originally published in the 1980’s:
- The Cereal Rusts: Vol. I, W.R. Bushnell and A.P. Roelfs, eds.
- The Cereal Rusts: Vol. II, A.P. Roelfs and W.R. Bushnell, eds.
Speaking of rust, a meeting of the Oat Rust Initiative was held in February. Information from that meeting, as well as from the PAG XXV meeting held in January, can be found in the “Other Meetings” section.
Normally, this would be the part where I mention other bits and pieces of news. This time, however, there are so many that I have resorted to listing them in a separate article. It can be found in the “Community News” section, along with two other articles. One presents a series of twelve videos from the Practical Farmers of Iowa describing the use of small grains in rotation in that area. The other describes the Persian New Year, Nowruz, and how oats can be incorporated into that celebration!
Happy Nowruz to those of you celebrating this week!
