Too wet to farm
BY STEPHANIE GROVESStaff Writersgroves@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — Since thebeginning of July, Van Wert,Allen and Putnam countieshave seen much higher thanaverage rainfall totals whichhas made it nearly impos-sible for farmers to harvesttheir winter wheat.Van Wert County OSU-Extension Educator Dr.Curtis Young reports thewinter wheat is ready tobe harvested and the big-gest concern for the farmersis getting into the fields.Running huge equipmentinto the saturated fields willbe a challenge.“Farmers risk damagingthe soils by creating ruts andcompacting soils,” Youngexplained. “Also, becausethe seed heads are so ripe,the grains are falling out —ground shatter — a condi-tion that will decrease thefarmers’ yields.”In addition, Young saidfarmers will have to navi-gate their combines throughfields and not smack thekernels out with the reel onthe machinery.Young said the weatherforecast for the next fewdays into the weekend looksto be drier than in the recentpast. He anticipates a lotof action (harvesting) thisweekend.“Yields have the potentialto be very respectable sincethe grain matured naturallyand filled in properly thisyear,” he said. “Test weightsare holding good as long asthere is no cycling of wet/dry weather.”Another concern forwheat crop is a funguscalled Head Scab (vomi-toxin), produced by fungi(molds) growing on grain orgrain products.“Vomitoxin is a stabletoxin that has ill effects onlivestock — predominantlyswine — if it is present infeeds,” Young said.Allen County FarmService Agency ExecutiveDirector David P. Nusbaumreports that there is littlewheat off in his county sincefarmers cannot get into theirfields.“There are concerns forthe fungus vomitoxin sinceit lowers the quality of thegrade and in turn, decreasesthe crop values quite a bit,”Nusbaum stated.Nusbaum said anotherimportant considerationis crop insurance for suchinstances.“Farmers should contacttheir local crop insuranceagent,” he said. “They willneed a record from the grainelevator to make a claimshould they take a loss.”Putnam County OSUExtension Educator JamesHoorman said the countyhas seen a scattered mix of rainfall totals occurring over10 of the last 16 days.“Miller City did notget much rain and Findlayreceived up to 4 1/2 inches,”Hoorman reported.

It’s held upuntil now but on the bright side we knowwhere it’s coming from,” she said. “Theleak is in the southwest corner of theboiler room; I was able to see it. It will betaken care of but I’m not sure how muchit will cost.“I’m also planning to put in for a grantfor a back-up generator, which we’vetalked about previously.”Rist announced the continuing suc-cess of the Summer Reading Program, of which two weeks remain. Also, plans arebeing made for a teen group section in thelibrary for young adult readers.“I’ve been told we have a bigger groupof teen readers at the library than everbefore,” Rist said. “We’ve sat down withsome of them and asked them what theywould like to see and we’ve decided itwould be a good idea to have an areaclosed off and have a staff member therewho is geared towards teens. They’revery excited about having an area of theirown.”Rist shared some statistics with theboard on the Delphos library’s standingout of 251 libraries around Ohio as far ascost per circulation and operating revenue.With cost per circulation at $1.96, theDelphos library is 17th in the state, withDr. Earl S.

If by pollution you mean greenhousegas emissions, then definitely yes.According to Maria Diuk-Wasser at theYale School of Public Health, the onsetof human-induced global warming islikely to increase the infection rates of mosquito-borne diseases like malaria,dengue fever and West Nile virus by cre-ating more mosquito-friendly habitats.“The direct effects of temperatureincrease are an increase in immaturemosquito development, virus develop-ment and mosquito biting rates, whichincrease contact rates (biting) withhumans,” she reports. To wit, the U.S. Centers for DiseaseControl and Prevention (CDC) reporteda record number of West Nile virusinfections in the continental U.S. in2012 with some 5,674 documented casesincluding 286 deaths. The virus usesinsects as hosts where they reproduceand then are transmitted to humans viamosquito bites; it can also be transmittedvia blood transfusions, organ transplantsand breast feeding.While it’s still far less common, U.S.cases of mosquito-borne dengue fever—also known as “breakbone fever” for thefeeling it gives its victims—rose by 70percent in 2012 as compared with 2011.The CDC reports 357 cases of denguefever in the continental U.S. in 2012,up from 251 in 2011. The majority, 104,was in Florida, but New York had 64and California 35. Most of the infectionswere imported on people travelling tothe U.S.—Puerto Rico played host to4,450 dengue fever cases in 2012, upfrom only 1,507 in 2011. But some of the cases in Florida likely came frommosquito bites there. The virus behinddengue fever thrives in tropical and sub-tropical environments. The increasedwarming predicted for the southern U.S.along with increased flooding meansdengue fever will no doubt be spread-ing north on the backs of mosquitoesinto U.S. states that never thought theywould have to deal with such exoticoutbreaks.West Nile and dengue fever aren’tthe only mosquito-borne diseases onU.S. public health officials’ radar.Chikungunya, which hitches a ride onthe ever expanding Asian tiger mosquitoand can cause high fever, fatigue, head-ache, nausea, muscle and joint pain, anda nasty rash in humans, comes fromtropical Africa and Asia. But cases havestarted appearing in Western Europein recent years and are expected tomake it to the U.S. East Coast at any-time. Likewise, Rift Valley fever, whichbrings with it fever, muscle pain, dizzi-ness, vision loss and even encephalitis,was limited to Kenya only a decade agobut today has spread across the entireAfrican continent and is expected tomake an appearance in Europe and theU.S. soon.While researchers are hard at workto find vaccines against these dis-eases, concerned Americans can takesome basic precautions to minimizetheir chances of getting mosquitobites. Keep screens on all the win-dows and doors in the house that canopen. Outside, wear long pants andlong-sleeved shirts when possible andcover up with an insect repellent—theU.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) says only those formulationscontaining the chemical DEET havebeen proven effective but there areplenty of all natural alternatives outthere. In the meantime, our best defenseagainst these diseases may be keepingour carbon footprints down, as the lessglobal warming we cause, the less we’llhave to deal with an onslaught of tropi-cal mosquito-borne diseases.
