Precious milk

first_imgBy Cat HolmesUniversity of GeorgiaSkyrocketing gas prices are no secret. But now Americans arenoticing higher tabs when they go to pay for milk, pizza and icecream, too.That’s because milk prices have more than doubled since this timelast year, said University of Georgia agricultural economist BillThomas. “The base price for milk was $9.41 last year and it’s$19.66 now.”The cause? A slew of factors that have combined to create “almosta perfect storm,” Thomas said.What happenedFor the past three years, dairy farmers have made some of thelowest prices in history, said Bill Graves, a UGA ExtensionService dairy specialist. “For the past two years, they’ve made1975 prices.”The result was that many dairy farmers downsized or quit, and theones who remained added cows.Another factor is the case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy,or mad cow disease, in a single U.S. dairy cow last December.That cow came from Canada, so the United States stopped importsof Canadian dairy cows. That action cut off a major supply ofreplacement dairy cows, Thomas said.To compound the problem, the high price of gas has raisedtransportation costs, and feed prices have soared.On top of everything else, the demand for milk started to pick upas the economy improved.’Perfect storm'”All of a sudden, we have a higher demand for milk and a low milksupply,” Thomas said. “The net effect was to drive the prices up.”The rise in dairy prices is unmistakable at Peppino’s Pizzaria, alocally owned restaurant in Athens, Ga. Prominent signs on eitherside of the cash registers read: “Due to the price of cheese going very crazy, we have to raise the price of [our pizza].”In a recent PizzaMarketplace.com survey, 70 percent of themarkets surveyed said they’ve raised their pizza prices or wereplanning to do so in the near future.Where’s the money going?”It’s sure not going into farmers’ pockets,” Graves said. “It’sthe retailers, not the producers, who set the prices. About 30percent of what you pay goes to the farmer. The other 70 percentgoes to processors, distributors and retailers.”Thomas notes that a gallon of milk at the Athens Navy Commissaryis $1 cheaper than at the grocery store where he normally shops.”The higher prices are helping dairy farmers recover, butretailers are definitely making money off milk right now,” Thomassaid.Thomas predicts that base milk prices will start to decline inthe next couple of months.”Fluid milk (prices) will continue to increase for the nextcouple of months and then … start to come back down,” he said.”Will the retail milk prices come back down? That’s the bigquestion. And right now, nobody has the answer.”(Cat Holmes is a news editor for the University of GeorgiaCollege of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

Perennial care

first_imgBy Faith PeppersUniversity of GeorgiaMany beginning gardeners think planting perennials is easy. You plant them and year after year they perform with little care. Not true.”It’s a misconception that because perennials last from year to year they require little maintenance and care,” said Paul Thomas, a University of Georgia horticulture professor in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.”While some perennials survive with little care,” Thomas said, “more require some attention to look their best. In many cases, perennial beds require more work than annual beds.”Annual beds can be easily overhauled each year or even each season. Perennial plots are with you for the long haul. “But the rewards of perennials make the added maintenance worthwhile,” Thomas said.Thomas offers these tips to keep perennial beds looking their best:Watering. Perennials’ drought tolerance varies, but more require an ample moisture supply at least during active growth. Don’t rely on normal rainfall. Water if necessary.Allow the water to penetrate deeply. Frequent, light waterings aren’t advisable because they wet only the upper soil and result in shallow root growth and wet foliage and flowers. That’s an invitation to many diseases. Soaker hoses and drip irrigation systems work well with perennials. Mulching. To help conserve moisture, control weeds and improve the overall appearance of the garden, you need to mulch perennials. Mulches also tend to prevent soil crusting, which retards water penetration, and prevent soil from splashing on lower leaves and flowers.Mulches provide an added degree of winter protection, too. A word of caution: Heavy mulches that hold moisture can be detrimental, particularly to plants subject to crown rot. Pine bark, pine straw, wood chips and a variety of other materials are good. Fertilizing. Maintenance fertilization is essential to the continued growth of perennials. Apply 8-8-8 or 10-10-10 (1.5 pounds per 100 square feet) in early spring and once or twice again during the growing season.Base maintenance fertilization on soil tests. Applying phosphorus is often not needed once adequate soil levels become established. Water the bed after applying so the fertilizer enters the soil and is available to the plant. Wash any fertilizer off the foliage to prevent fertilizer burn.Controlling weeds. A well-prepared bed requires little cultivation. Deep cultivation is likely to injure roots and often uncovers weed seeds, which can then germinate. Weed control should usually be done by hand weeding or with herbicides.Use extreme caution when using a herbicide. Very few are suitable for use around perennials. Read the label carefully to be sure it won’t injure desirable plants.Defoliating. Remove dead foliage and stems in the fall. It’s natural for the tops of many perennials to be killed to the ground by frost. Some herbaceous perennials have evergreen foliage.Dividing and propagating. While the length of time varies, most perennials eventually become overcrowded and require division. Mature clumps can be cut or pulled apart. Divisions should usually contain three to five shoots or growing points. Discard any weak or diseased divisions.The time to divide perennials varies somewhat, but it’s most often fall or early spring, coinciding with desired planting dates. Many perennials are easily propagated in this way.To find out more about growing and caring for perennials and a good list of perennials that grow well in Georgia, see the Georgia Extension Service publication, “Flowering Perennials for Georgia Gardens” (http://pubs.caes.uga.edu/caespubs/pubcd/b944-w.html).(Faith Peppers is a news editor with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more
