CAR DEER ACCIDENTS

 

We are nearing the time of year when deer are very active during rutting season and vehicle collisions with deer often occur as deer are on the move across interstates and country roads. Deer usually are more active at dawn and dusk. To help you avoid a collision with a deer, slow down, avoid using your cell phone while driving, beware of distractions, and watch for movement along the sides of the road. Remember, if a deer does cross your path, there may be other deer following behind. Being alert and not distracted is the best way to avoid a vehicle collision with a deer.

ILLINOIS FARMERS TACKLE COMPACTED SOILS

 

This fall, Illinois farmers will have the chance to address compacted soils as most fields will be dry enough to allow tillage that helps alleviate compaction.  This was not the case in 2009 when soils were wet at harvest time.  According to U of I Extension agronomist Everson Nafzinger, deep tillage can’t fully restore soil to its pre-compacted state, but it can make space for air to enter the soil to increase pore space.  The basic tillage equipment used to reduce compaction is a “deep ripper,” capable of ripping the compacted soil to a depth of twelve to eighteen inches.  For best results, soils must be dry enough to shatter well, breaking up the soil and leaving some of the crop residue on the surface to help reduce soil erosion.
