Broadcaster Press 7 May 29, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com 2018 Eastern South Dakota Grasshopper Forecast BROOKINGS, S.D. - The 2018 cool wet spring may lead to reduced grasshopper populations, compared to 2017 says SDSU Extension entomology team. "During 2017, many of the grasshoppers that we observed were several weeks behind schedule in growth," said Adam J. Varenhorst, Assistant Professor & SDSU Extension Field Crop Entomologist. However, Varenhorst explained that trying to predict insect populations is difficult as many additional factors can contribute to their winter survival and overall spring populations. "Our recommendation is to scout for spring grasshopper populations, as they will be the first indicator of potential problem areas," he said. "Depending on the 2018 growing season, areas with limited rainfall or drought conditions may experience increased grasshopper populations." A look back on 2017 In 2017, researchers at South Dakota State University completed a grasshopper survey of Eastern South Dakota. The last grasshopper survey conducted in Eastern South Dakota was published in 1925. Those involved in this survey included: Erica Anderson, SDSU Graduate Student; Patrick Wagner, SDSU Extension Entomology Field Specialist; Philip Rozeboom, Research Associate; Laura Edwards, SDSU Extension State Climatologist and Amanda Bachmann, SDSU Extension Pesticide Education & Urban Entomology Field Specialist. 2017 was an interesting growing season with areas of South Dakota experiencing severe drought conditions. "In some of these areas, we found that grasshopper populations were causing defoliation injury to already drought-stressed crops," Varenhorst said. He explained that factors that can lead to increased grasshopper populations include long, warm falls, decreased ground cover, and limited spring rainfall. Leading up to 2017, we experienced several warm falls where the first frost date occurred much later than normal. "These conditions allowed grasshoppers to successfully lay eggs for a much longer period of time and were likely part of the reason why we saw increased grasshopper populations in the eastern half of the state," he said. Areas of South Dakota with grasshopper populations that reached or exceeded the threshold of eight or more grasshoppers per square yard included: Hyde, Hand, Beadle, Kingsbury, Spink, Buffalo, Jerauld, Brule, Aurora, Douglas and Hutchinson counties. In addition, there were several other counties that had multiple samples near threshold levels. Place an ad. Make money. It works! Call Today! 624-4429 Sell it Local!

However, with over 33 years in the military the word “operation” affords me a completely different meaning. For decades, the military has issued random code names for exercises, attack plans and other operations. Operations were used to resolve conflict, promote peace, and support civilian leaders in response to domestic crises. In the 70’s while on Army active duty training in Europe, there was Operation Reforger, and every year while at SDNG Golden Coyote training there were many different operations based on the humanitarian mission we were carrying out. My tour in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan had numerous humanitarian operations, including Operation Qala-iWali Air Assault. I have lived with operations and missions throughout most of my life. Some were assigned to me as a part of a military mission, and some I developed to enhance information exchange and to increase outreach for the Department. During my six years leading the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs, I carried that operational mindset with me. A key part of building momentum is education, raising awareness, and inspiring action. Although much of the focus of our operations was on veterans, it also afforded us the opportunity to educate the masses that may not have served. ' 3 HDGOLQHV Classified Ads: Friday at Noon Display Ads: Friday at 11AM Our Department operations included Reaching All Veterans (RAV), Ketchup, Korean, Taiwan, Saigon, Whirlwind and Calling All Returning Servicemembers (CARS). Although each was conducted with its own mission and time frame, they all afforded us the opportunity to reach out to our veterans and to thank them for their service, educate them on the benefits, services and programs available to them. They also provided us a great opportunity to educate civilians on the important role these heroes played in protecting our freedoms. Our veterans have shouldered the burden of our defense. They display extraordinary strength and resilience in the face of adversity to protect the freedoms we, as Americans, enjoy daily. They remain disciplined, dedicated, and trained Americans with a wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience. When our men and women return home after years of war and sacrifice, we have the opportunity to show our gratitude by serving them. I’m proud of the team that worked with us as we completed our operations. They met each mission with energy, passion and deep devotion to our veterans. God bless our veterans, their families, and the United States of America. TRACTORS – COLLECTOR TRACTORS COMBINES – HEADERS – SKID LOADERS FORAGE/HAYING/FEEDING EQUIPMENT PLANTERS – ASST.
