The dynamic changed after he and many neighbors start- ed no-till management in the 1990s, he said. Since then, only the extremely dry 2006 season saw a corn crop fail- ure. Sieck credits that resilience to minimal soil disturbance and better soil structure that holds moisture until plants need it. “No-till combined with di- versity in rotation are the two biggest tools that decreased our drought risk,” he said. As a cattle producer, he’s encouraged to have a drought plan in place that tells him when to cull cows if dry con- ditions are persisting. Sieck thinks farmers need the same sort of plan, but action on it needs to be pre-emptive. He and the Johnsons have spent decades building resil- ient soils, but skipping the tillage pass in a dry cycle can have immediate benefits on any field. “Don’t do anything to pro- mote water evaporation,” ad- vises Anthony Bly, soils field specialist with South Dakota State University Extension. Where a tilled field might readily absorb water, it does so for only a brief time before silty particles create a hard crust that water can’t pene- trate. Leaving the soil undis- turbed and adding diversity lets a healthy community of microbes create soil structure that will allow water to infil- trate, which is ultimately what makes soil more resilient. “The no-till helps. You’re not down in there tearing their house apart,” Sieck said. Undisturbed soil and resi- due from the previous crop build organic matter, which is important for water storage, Bly added. On the surface, residue creates a sort of armor that helps reduce evaporation and erosion. Cover crops can do even more to help. They keep a liv- ing root in the soil past harvest time. They feed the micro- biome that’s at work under- ground building healthy soils and add a diversity of root- ing patterns, Bly explained. Soybeans have a taproot, corn roots are fibrous, and small grains are fibrous but more distributed. Cover crops fill in a gap there, Bly said. Sorghum Sudan grass is good summertime cover, ac- cording to agronomist Dale Strickler, who works with Green Cover Seed in south central Nebraska and has written the books “Managing Pasture” and “The Drought- Resilient Farm.” “Sorghum Sudan has more biomass above ground and be- low ground than any other an- nual crop,” he said, adding that it will generate more pounds of forage than anything else for producers looking to sup- plement livestock feed. It’s hard to beat the growth cereal rye and triticale cover crops can put on in the win- ter months, he said, and they have massive root systems. Those roots make pathways – macropores – where wa- ter can filter through the soil. Pores need to be open to the soil surface to get the benefit of water infiltration, Strickler said. Tillage closes those pores. He equates it to snor- keling: “There’s a big differ- ence between having your snorkel above or below the surface.” Last year’s dry conditions kept Bly from planting many cover crops after corn and soybeans on his southeastern South Dakota farm. He didn’t want them using any moisture reserves he’d need for his next BULLS REGISTERED TEXAS LONGHORN BULLS for sale. Yearlings, 2’s, 3’s, senior herd sire. Call for catalog. Will hold until May 1.

Understanding your soils and their water holding capacity is important to planting plans. It’s like managing your bank account, he said. Cover crops are an invest- ment. Starting out is tough, especially in a dry period, Strickler said, but it pays off in subsequent years with bet- ter infiltration, better wa- ter holding capacity and less evaporation. A typical cover crop leaves an average 1.5 inches less moisture at termination, ac- cording to several studies, Strickler said. “It only takes one good rain to replenish that inch and a half,” he said. “The cover crop soil usually catches up very rapidly, and once caught up, you stay ahead.” Strickler believes farmers can do a better job of using the resources they already have. He recalled driving through southwestern Kansas during the drought year of 2012. He saw a tractor at work feeding hay bales on a buffalo grass pasture that was nothing but dirt. On the other side of the fence was a sprayer knock- ing out 3-foot pigweeds and crabgrass in the wheat stub- ble. There were about 3 tons per acre of nutritious feed out there, he estimated, but pro- ducers aren’t used to looking at weeds and stubble as poten- tial feed sources. “Thousands of dollars could be saved by opening a gate,” he said. Johnson, the farmer from Frankfort, said there are re- sources for producers look- ing to learn more about how to improve their operation’s ability to withstand weather extremes. The South Dakota Soil Health Coalition web- site at www.sdsoilhealthcoali- tion.org has a Healthy Soils Handbook that serves as a technical resource. You can also connect with experienced producers throughout the state by tapping into the Mentor Network. “We’ve got lots of resourc- es there so you’re not starting from square one,” Johnson said. NWS Radar Getting Update Beginning March 8, the KABR WSR-88D radar op- erated by NOAA’s National Weather Service in Aberdeen will be down for approximate- ly two weeks for an important upgrade. Technicians will remove and replace the 16-foot tall, 17,420-pound pedestal, which supports a 28-foot diameter, 2,100-pound parabolic dish as it spins 360 degrees and while moving vertically by steps. To accomplish this feat, the 39- foot diameter, 7,900-pound “soccer ball” radome must first be removed. A large crane will be on-site to do the heavy lifting. The radar and pedestal were designed to last 25 years, and this radar has exceeded its life-span. This activity is nec- essary to keep the radar func- tioning for another 20 years or more. The pedestal refurbish- ment is the third major proj- ect of the NEXRAD Service Life Extension Program, a series of upgrades that will keep our nation’s radars vi- able into the 2030s. NOAA’s National Weather Service, the United States Air Force, and the Federal Aviation Administration are investing $135 million in the eight year program. The first project was the installation of the new sig- nal processor and the second project was the refurbish- ment of the transmitter. The fourth project will be the re- furbishment of the equipment shelters. The Service Life Extension Program will be complete in 2023. During the downtime, ad- jacent radars will be avail- able, including: Rapid City, SD (KUDX), Bismarck, ND (KBIS), Grand Forks, ND (KMVX), Minneapolis, MN (KMPX), Sioux Falls, SD (KFSD) and North Platte, NE (KLNX). For direct access to any of these surrounding radar sites, visit the following web page: https://radar.weather. gov/ or any number of web- sites and mobile/tablet apps where WSR-88D weather ra- dar data is freely available in real time. The KABR WSR-88D is part of a network of 159 op- erational radars. The Radar Operations Center in Norman, Oklahoma, provides lifecycle management and support for all WSR-88Ds. How Green Is My Dog Trees are green, grass is green and so is Cristian Mallocci’s new- born puppy. And, that’s why he named the pup Pistachio, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Mallocci is a farmer on the Italian island of Sardinia and his dog recently gave birth to a litter of five puppies all of which, except Pistachio, were born with white fur. There have been other reports of green dogs being born and the vets will tell you that it is not a threatening con- dition; it can happen when green bile pigment in the mother’s pla- centa combines with her amni- otic fluid. The coloration is not permanent. It fades away in time and it does not impair the puppy in any way. In fact, Mallocci plans to give away Pistachio’s four sib- lings and train Pistachio to tend to his sheep.
