2013 Tree and Landscape Short Course - 2nd notice

Dear Friends and Colleagues,


For 32 years the University of Florida IFAS and the Hillsborough County Extension Service have organized and presented a daylong workshop on landscape maintenance and the care of trees and shrubs. This year, the 2013 Tree and Landscape Short Course will take place at the state of the art Trinkle Conference Center on the campus of Hillsborough Community College in Plant City FL (please see attached brochure).


The program is packed with classes that present the latest science and technology associated with arboriculture and professional landscape management. The theme of the Short Course is ‘Sustainable Urban Landscapes’ and the ongoing need for water quantity conservation and water quality protection.


The classes provide practical and useable information and training that support technical and professional certification through the award of Continuing Education Credits from the International Society of Arboriculture (certified arborists), Florida Nursery Growers and Landscape Association (landscaping professionals) and Florida DOACS (pesticide operators). We anticipate that each attendee can receive up to 5 CEUs from the ISA in arboriculture, 6-pesticide operator CEU’s from FL DOACS, plus 4 FNGLA CEUs.


We continue to provide a mix of general sessions and breakout sessions to allow participants the flexibility to focus on topics specific to their work responsibilities and to increase their ability to obtain the most appropriate CEUs.


Registration, which includes lunch and a morning break, is $35/person. Money is tight across the board and like you we are making every effort to provide high quality educational opportunities that support governments, industry and our Extension employees at the lowest cost possible.


As noted in the attached brochure registration can best be handled through our on-line service at that will take most major credit cards. If you need to use a check, please follow the directions found on the web site … we look forward to seeing you next month … Rob and Susan


P.S. Please forgive us for duplicate email announcements as we work on cleaning up our contact lists.

Oyster Collapse

Dear Friends and Colleagues,


I have written earlier about the large-scale collapse of oyster reefs in Apalachicola Bay and surrounding coastal habitats.  To address the problem and assist our state agencies with their efforts, IFAS created a task force of aquatic scientists and Extension specialists.  Also involved are IFAS experts in community development, who are working with the families of oystermen who have lost their jobs.  Please find in the web link below an update on the problem.  Make sure to catch the video at the end of the article which features Dr. Karl Havens.  I had asked Karl to chair this Task Force and he and fellow task force members have accomplished much in the short time they have been together.  Last week Karl was asked to provide testimony before Senator Mumford’s Agriculture Committee in Tallahassee.

The effects of climate change on plants:
Plants can adapt to extreme shifts in water availability, such as drought and flooding, but their ability to withstand these extreme patterns will be tested by future climate change, according to a study by USDA scientists and their cooperators. (1/22)

Treating soils with biosolids:
Treated wastewater solids called biosolids are sometimes used by farmers to boost soil nutrient levels. Now research by a USDA scientist provides new information about how long those plant nutrients remain after biosolids have been applied to the soil. (1/23)

A better way to grow biopesticides:
Biopesticides containing beneficial fungi are often grown on grains or other solids, but USDA scientists have shown a liquid diet can work better. The approach, dubbed "liquid culture fermentation," offers several benefits, including lower material costs and increased yields of certain forms of insect-killing fungi that can serve as biobased alternatives to synthetic pesticides. (1/24)

Fighting back against citrus greening:
USDA scientists are helping citrus growers and juice processors address the threat posed by citrus greening, a disease that is costing the citrus industry millions of dollars each year. Infected citrus trees usually die within five to 10 years. Fruit on infected trees often falls to the ground before harvest, and fruit that remains on trees may become misshapen and sometimes only partially ripen. (1/25)

2013 Extension Risk Management Education National Conference

2013 Extension Risk Management Education National Conference April 3 – 4, 2013 Pre-Conference Seminar – April 2, 2013 The Westin Westminster Denver, CO

The goal of this conference is to broaden risk management education programming for agricultural producers, to encourage new programming efforts, and to strengthen existing programs.

Call for Concurrent Session and Poster Presentations

Proposals due January 17th, 2013

The 2013 Extension Risk Management Education National Conference will bring together private and public sector educators, crop insurance agents, lenders, and other agricultural professionals to share ongoing and emerging successful risk management education efforts which target agricultural producers and their families. Conference participants will learn about what is working to help producers effectively manage the financial, production, marketing, legal and human resource risks associated with their agribusinesses.

A Pre-Conference Seminar will be held on Tuesday afternoon, April 2nd. The conference planning committee recognizes that recently risk has been transferred from crop production, which has strong prices and effective crop insurance, to animal agriculture. With that in mind, the pre-conference subject matter will focus on Risk Management for Animal Agriculture.

Concurrent Session and Poster Proposals

Concurrent session presentations are being solicited which highlight successful risk management education programming. Abstract submission is encouraged from any public or private entity involved in risk management education for agricultural producers, regardless of whether the project was funded through a regional Extension Risk Management Education Center. Proposals for panel presentations, professional improvement sessions, and/or multi-region presentations are also encouraged.

Format of Proposals: Proposals will be accepted online, beginning November 15, 2012. To submit a proposal for a concurrent session presentation or a poster display, please go to the Extension Risk Management Education website ( and click the link for submitting a proposal. There you will be able to register your proposal and provide an abstract (maximum of 250 words) describing your educational effort, and how it was of benefit to producers involved in agricultural production.

Length of sessions: 30 minute or 60 minute Concurrent Sessions are available, depending upon the time required to adequately present the educational material. As you consider which length to choose, please bear in mind that we would like presenters to allow 5-10 minutes at the end the session for questions and interaction. Professional Improvement Sessions will be scheduled for 90 minutes.

Poster exhibits: Tables and poster walls will both be available to exhibit posters. Exhibitors utilizing tables will be responsible for providing a structure, such as a display board, to secure and exhibit the poster. Conference participants will have an opportunity to interact with the poster authors during an evening reception on April 3rd.

Topics for Proposals

Concurrent Session and Poster Exhibit topics may include programming related to any of the five areas of risk addressed by agricultural RME including: financial, production, marketing, legal and human resource. The Conference Planning Committee encourages all concurrent session and poster presenters to focus on the risk management results that producers gained through participation in their educational projects. Given the pre-conference topic of risk management for animal production, educators who work in the area of animal agriculture may consider submitting abstracts that lend themselves to focusing on risk management for livestock producers.

Professional Improvement Sessions will also focus on agricultural RME, but rather than describing specific results-based programs, topics will be presented from a professional improvement perspective. Examples of track sessions might include topics such as (but not limited to):
· estate planning
· leadership roles in agriculture
· reaching out to new audiences

A limited number of professional improvement session presentations will be chosen. We encourage a team approach (2 -3 person team) to present material to help the participants improve their understanding and increase their confidence for their future programming efforts.

Audience Groups

The Planning Committee also invites proposals from projects that targeted audience groups which are identified for special emphasis in Section 12026 of the 2008 Farm Bill. These include:
· Beginning farmers and ranchers
· Legal immigrant farmers and ranchers who are attempting to become established in the U.S.
· Socially disadvantaged farmers or ranchers
· Farmers or ranchers who
a. Are preparing to retire; and
b. Are using transitions strategies to help new farmers or ranchers get started
· New or established farmers or ranchers who are converting production and marketing systems to pursue new markets

Review of Proposals

A peer review committee will consider each proposal that is submitted by the deadline of January 17, 2013. Decisions will be made in late January, at which time presenters will be notified.

Guidelines for Concurrent Session Presenters and Poster Authors

Workshop and poster presenters will be expected to register, pay, and participate in the entire Conference (April 3 – 4, 2013). The Conference will begin early on the morning of April 3rd and will conclude at noon on April 4th. The Pre-Conference Seminar, for those who choose to attend, will take place on the afternoon of April 2nd.

Travel assistance will be available through the regional Extension RME Centers. More information and details will be available on the Conference website, but please note, you must register for and attend the entire conference in order to be eligible. Expenses will be reimbursed upon submission of a travel expense report, receipts, and airline boarding passes.

Concurrent session and professional improvement session presenters should be prepared to submit an electronic copy of their presentation prior to the conference. Further instructions will be provided at a later date.

If you have any questions, please contact Laurie Wolinski (, 302-831-2538) or Susan Olson (, 302-831-6540).

News & Resources

USDA Finalizes New Microloan Program
A new microloan program from USDA is designed to help small and family operations, beginning, and socially disadvantaged farmers secure loans under $35,000. The new program is aimed at bolstering the progress of producers through their start-up years by providing needed resources and helping to increase equity so that farmers may eventually graduate to commercial credit and expand their operations. Producers interested in applying for a microloan may contact their local Farm Service Agency office.

Cover Crops Survey Seeking Participants
NCR-SARE is collaborating with the Conservation Technology Information Center to distribute a survey to farmers who have been growing cover crops. One of the goals of the survey is to determine the impact of cover crops on cash crop yields under drought conditions. The organizations are also gathering information about factors influencing cover crop adoption, perceived benefits from cover crops, and the amount farmers are willing to pay for both cover crop seed and establishment. Farmers who have been growing cover crops are asked to take the survey online.

University of Maine Launches Beginning Farmer Website
University of Maine Cooperative Extension has introduced a new Beginning Farmer Resource Network and a question-and-answer website. Developed by a group of agricultural service providers, the Beginning Farmer Resource Network is a collaborative online effort to address concerns among beginning farmers about available services and to provide answers to commonly asked questions.

Cornell Team Works to Develop East Coast Broccoli Industry
A Cornell-led team of researchers is working to make East Coast broccoli production a year-round market worth $100 million a year. A team that includes researchers from public and private broccoli-breeding programs, production specialists, and economists is building a regional food network for broccoli. The team has been developing hybrid varieties that perform well in hot, humid summers. The team says additional expense involved in producing broccoli in the East can be offset by savings in transportation costs.

Food Tank: The Food Think Tank Launched
Food Tank: The Food Think Tank is bringing attention to the issues of obesity and malnutrition. Food Tank is planning a Change the Food System summit in 2013, conducting on-the-ground research, preparing research reports and books, highlighting road maps for sustainable agricultural systems, and building an innovations database. The Food Tank website will be posting new research and insights daily.

Videos Promote Utilizing Cover Crops in Integrated Crop-Livestock System
The North Dakota Department of Agriculture has initiated a project to create more interest in utilizing cover crops as part of an integrated system that maximizes land use and promotes soil health. Eleven short videos have been posted online, featuring the systems used by several North Dakota producers and the Integrated Crop-Livestock Study at the Dickinson Research Extension Center. The project is seeking additional producers and researchers who will participate in developing short videos.
