Five Questions Non-Operator We Are NoW DeAlers For Ag leADer
Landowners Should Ask Their
Farmers About Soil Health
By Elisa O’Halloran, Webmaster & Writer, USDA-NRCS
More farmers, ranchers and others who rely on the land
are taking action to improve the health of their soil. Many
farmers are actually building the soil. How? By using soil
health management systems that include cover crops, diverse
rotations and no-till.
And when they’re building the soil they’re doing something else—they’re also building the land’s production
potential over the long-term.
But how do non-operator landowners (people who rent
their land to farmers) know if their tenants are doing everything they need to do to make and keep their soil healthy?
Barry Fisher, an Indiana farmer and nationally recognized
soil health specialist with the USDA’s Natural Resources
Conservation Service, recommends that they ask their farming partner these five questions.
1. Do you build organic matter in the soil?
Organic matter (carbon) may be the most important indicator of a farm’s productivity. The amount of soil organic
matter often determines the price farmers will pay to rent
or buy land. Finding a farmer who is interested in building
organic matter by using practices like no-till and cover crops
is like finding a bank with a better rate on a Certificate of
Deposit, Fisher says.
2. Do you test the soil at least once every 4 years?
Fisher says maintaining fertility and pH levels are important to your farm’s productivity. Regular soil testing can
give an indication of trends in soil fertility, pH and organic
matter levels in each field. These tests will determine the
amount of fertilizer each field needs. If a field has a history
of manure application and very high fertility, a farmer could
save money by planting cover crops to keep those nutrients
in place rather than applying more nutrients that may not
be needed.
3. Do you use no-till practices?
Some landowners like the look of a clean-tilled field in
the springtime. That “nice look” is short lived, though. “The
reality is a field that has bare soil is subject to erosion and
loss of organic matter, since it no longer has the protective
cover from the crop residue on the surface,” Fisher says.
“No-till farming utilizes the crop residue to blanket the soil
surface to protect it from the forces of intense rainfall and
summer heat. This protective blanket will conserve moisture for the crop and prevent loss of soil from wind erosion,
water erosion and CO2 (carbon) that could be burned off
by summer heat.”
4. Do you use cover crops?
“Like no-till, cover crops provide a green, protective
blanket through the winter months or fallow times. The
green-growing cover is collecting solar energy, putting down
roots and providing habitat when the soil would otherwise
be lifeless and barren,” says Fisher. This habitat provides
food and shelter for a broad population of wildlife above
ground and beneficial organisms below ground. As the new
life emerges, cover crops hold onto the nutrients left from
the previous crop and in turn releases them to the next crop.
The solar rays these plants collect are powering photosynthesis, taking in CO2 from the atmosphere to produce food
for the plant and the organisms living in the root zone. This
same process also releases clean oxygen to the air and builds
nutrient rich organic matter in the soil.
5. What can we do together to improve soil health on
my land?
To improve soil health, landowners and tenants have to
think in terms of the long-term. According to Fisher, the
duration of the lease agreement is perhaps the most critical
matter in encouraging the adoption of these soil health management systems. “Farmers can actually build the production
capacity and resiliency of their landowner’s soil,

Questions continued from page B3
but it may take several years to realize the full benefits of
doing so,” Fisher says. He suggests that landowners consider
multiple-year leases that provide tenure security for the tenant. Longer tenures give both landowners and tenants more
opportunities to improve soil health and realize the resulting longer-term production and profitability gains through
sustainable conservation practices.
“Improving soil health can provide long-term, stable
dividends for you, your family and your farming partner,”
Fisher says. “Improving soil health also can decrease the
effects of flooding, make food production more resilient
to weather extremes, and improve the health of water and
wildlife, as well,” he adds.
Fisher encourages landowners to learn more about the
basics and benefits of soil health management systems and
to begin the soil health discussion with their farming partner right away. “Even if you’re not a farmer or landowner,
everyone has a great stake in improving the health of our
soil,” he says.

From Evelyn Boswell, Montana State University News Service
A balloon that traveled to the edge of space this week
carried two Montana State University experiments.
One experiment—launched Feb. 19 and retrieved Feb.
20 after reaching 102,200 feet—tested a tracking and highdefinition link that MSU hopes to use during a total solar
eclipse on Aug. 21, 2017. The Montana
Space Grant Consortium is organizing a national effort
where college students across the United States will monitor
the eclipse with high-altitude balloons.
The second experiment tested a computer system that’s
designed to resist radiation in space. MSU recently received word
that the tiny satellite it designed to carry the system was one of
14 CubeSats selected to fly on an upcoming NASA mission.
“It was just awesome,” Angela Des Jardins, director of
the Montana Space Grant Consortium, said about the 7 a.m.
balloon launch. “Our students were thrilled to be there and
be part of it.”
MSU was one of two universities invited to send experiments on the balloon, an opportunity that arose from connections between MSU’s Dave Klumpar and World View,
Des Jardins said. World View is the commercial balloon
spaceflight company that launched the research flight from
the Tucson, Ariz., area. Klumpar is director of MSU’s Space
Science and Engineering Laboratory.
The other university that flew an experiment on the balloon
was the University of North Florida. That experiment was
designed to measure the ozone gas profile in the stratosphere.
The research and education payloads are part of World
View’s commitment to opening routine access to high-altitude
balloon flights, as well as its dedication to advancing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs
in schools, according to a Feb. 20 press release from World
View. All three experiments involved multiple students over
multiple years.
Randy Larimer, deputy director of the Montana Space
Grant Consortium, said more than 40 graduate students and
undergraduate students over eight years were involved in
designing the computer system. They are led by MSU faculty
member Brock LaMeres. Besides flying on an upcoming
satellite mission in 2016, the technology is scheduled to
be tested on the International Space Station later this year.
More than 15 students at MSU and Iowa State University
contributed to the design of the video link that flew on the
World View balloon, Larimer added. The video link test
verified that the technology setup works well.
Larimer and four MSU students went to Arizona for the
balloon launch. The students were Sam Harkness, a graduate student in electrical engineering; Scott Miller, a senior in
computer engineering; Tim Basta, a senior in mechanical engineering; and Trevor Clark, a senior in electrical engineering.

ASA Develops Certification In
Sustainability For CCA’s
The United Soybean Board (USB), American Society
of Agronomy (ASA), and the International Certified Crop
Adviser (ICCA) Program have partnered to develop new
training for a specialty certification focused on sustainable
agricultural practices.
Consumers and the food industry are demanding that sustainable products be produced. Farmers, too, have a vested
interest in sustainability as they are stewards of the land.
“Best management practices” help growers protect the environment, produce abundant, safe food, and generate profit.
“The majority of U.S. soybean farmers are using sustainable practices, but we want to continue to improve our
operations,” says Bill Beam, USB farmer-leader and soybean
farmer from Elverson, PA. “Programs such as this will help
to create credible resources for farmers who are looking to
implement more of these practices on their farms.”
Increasingly, farmers are turning to professionals to advise
them about how to manage their land. Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) and Certified Professional Agronomists (CPAgs)
are trained in the field of agronomy—the study of plants,
soils, and their environment. To become certified, CCAs and
CPAgs have undergone rigorous training and testing, and
must continue with professional development to keep their
certification. Additional training will be required for the new
Sustainability Specialization Certification.
“CCAs are the single best influencers to work with local
producers,” says Luther Smith, Director of Certification.
“They can help growers adopt more sustainable crop production practices that will satisfy the future demands of the
food industry and consumer.” There are currently 13,000
CCA/CPAgs certified by the American Society of Agronomy/
International Certified Crop Adviser program.
The partnership between USB, ASA, and ICCA brings
together the best minds from the public and private sectors.
They will define sustainable crop production, best CCA
practices, and develop standards for CCA certification in
sustainability.
Food companies increasingly want to sustainably produce
food and recognize that crop advisors are important influences. “In recent years, the entire agricultural supply chain
has been working collaboratively to respond to consumer
demands for more sustainable food production,” says Rod
Snyder, president of Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture. “We are proud to partner with the ICCA
Program in developing their sustainability curriculum and
believe CCAs have a fundamental role to play in helping
farmers achieve continuous improvement in productivity
and environmental outcomes.”
USB is providing financial support to ASA and the ICCA
Program as well as recommendations for content expertise.
ASA and ICCA will manage the project and provide technical support through their staff and members.

Spring seems to have arrived early in western Oregon,
but never count on the weather. Though this year is shaping
up to be mild rather than wild, anything can happen.
There are still more than two months until April 15, when
you can, on average, count on saying goodbye to frost, according to Al Shay, a horticulture professor at Oregon State
University.
“Certainly a cold snap down to 20 degrees in March will
wreak havoc,” he said. “That kind of cold weather could
bring an end to new growth, buds, flowers, or even the
whole plant.”
Watch the forecast, Shay advised. If you see the temperature is going to drop below 20 degrees, he recommends the
following:
Cover plants you suspect will be damaged with an old
sheet, tablecloth, woven row cover or sheet of plastic. Use
stakes to prop the material over the plant and weigh down
the edges with rocks, bricks or whatever you have on hand.
The Willamette Valley is rated Zone 8 on the USDA hardiness scale, which means if you bought plants labeled Zone
8, they’ll be OK down to about 15 degrees.
If you don’t know the hardiness of your plants but have
lived in the same place for more than a couple of years,
think back to which plants limped through winter and concentrate on those. Be sure to remove the material when the
temperature rises.
Pull potted plants into an unheated garage, basement,
greenhouse, cold frame or similar site. Make sure it’s a place
where the temperature stays above freezing. If you’ve no
place indoors for plants, safeguard them by covering with
evergreen boughs, straw or leaves. Securing a piece of
bubble wrap or burlap around the pots also helps. Be quick
to remove it once the weather warms.
Provide mulch for tender perennials—including hardy
fuchsias, roses, clematis, salvia, some ferns, canna, agapanthus and dahlias—that are still in the ground. For extra
protection on plants you particularly prize, use this trick:
Assemble a tomato cage (the square, folding types are best)
around it. Wrap burlap around the outside of the cage and
secure with bungee cords. Fill with straw or leaves.
Shake heavy snow off shrubs and trees to keep branches
from breaking or bending. Leave snow at the base of plants,
however, because it insulates roots.
Remember to water. Even if it’s cold, plants need to be
watered if they dry out. Pay special attention to those under
eaves or large trees that don’t allow rain through.
Stalk slugs, which are already sliming their way through
the garden. Trapping or putting out bait now would be the
ticket to keep them from taking over. Also, watch for other
insects you’ve had trouble with in the past. If you catch
them early, it’s possible to use less-toxic controls such as
horticultural oils and soaps.
Sit tight. Don’t start planting or fertilizing just yet. Use
a thermometer to check the soil temperature and wait until
it reaches at least 50 degrees before planting cool-weather
crops such as peas, greens, radishes, cabbage and broccoli,
and 70 degrees for warm-weather plants such as tomatoes,
peppers, eggplants and squash.

Project Explores Best Strategy To
Help Farmers Local Food Markets
From University of Idaho News
A University of Idaho research project seeks strategies
to help small- to medium-sized farms supply foods to local markets.
One of the first efforts of the USDA-funded project will be
a survey of restaurant and grocery stores to better understand
how consumers’ desire for local foods translates to dollars
and cents for farmers and those who buy their products.
The National Institute of Food and Agriculture funded
the three-year project for $500,000 to support efforts by
University of Idaho Extension educators focused on small
farms, agricultural economists and other UI researchers.
The survey led by Aaron Johnson, a College of Agricultural
and Life Sciences economist, will ask grocery store produce
department managers and restaurant produce buyers about
factors that influence their decisions to buy local produce.
“We’re basically trying to figure out how large the market
is for local foods,” Johnson said, “and the challenges grocery
store and restaurant buyers might face.” The survey focuses
on buyers in Idaho, Washington and Oregon.
Tomatoes are one of the survey’s test cases, Johnson said,
because consumers buy a lot of them and they can be grown
commercially in the Northwest.
The survey questions probe buyers’ views on the tradeoffs
related to the price of produce versus the distance it must
travel and its seasonal availability.
“Our motivation is that a lot of people have looked at what
consumers want when they favor local produce,” Johnson
said, “but few if any have looked at how that translates to
actions at the retailer or restaurant-producer interactions.”
Darin Saul, the college’s grant writer, is the project director.
The survey data will help to develop strategies farmers can
use. Other goals for the study include evaluating strategies
for local and regional food processing and distribution and
estimating their economic impact. The study’s interdisciplinary approach also draws on College of Science faculty
members Tim Frazier and Ray Dezzani and College of Business
and Economics professor Shenghan Xu.
UI Extension small farms program educator Cinda Williams
and economist Paul Lewin will deliver educational trainings to
farmers to help them access local and regional opportunities.
The project includes an advisory board of food industry,
state, economic development and farmer representatives from
Boise, Caldwell, Nampa, Twin Falls and Moscow.

Another Reason
To Drink Wine:
It Could Help
You Burn Fat
By Gail Wells, Oregon State University
Drinking red grape juice or wine “in
moderation” could improve the health
of overweight people by helping them burn fat better, according to a new study coauthored by an Oregon State
University researcher.
The findings suggest that consuming dark-colored grapes,
whether eating them or drinking juice or wine, might help
people better manage obesity and related metabolic disorders
such as fatty liver.
Neil Shay, a biochemist and molecular biologist in OSU’s
College of Agricultural Sciences, was part of a study team
that exposed human liver and fat cells grown in the lab to
extracts of four natural chemicals found in Muscadine grapes,
a dark-red variety native to the southeastern United States.
One of the chemicals, ellagic acid, proved particularly
potent: It dramatically slowed the growth of existing fat
cells and formation of new ones, and it boosted metabolism
of fatty acids in liver cells.
These plant chemicals are not a weight-loss miracle, cautions Shay. “We didn’t find, and we didn’t expect to, that
these compounds would improve body weight,” he said. But
by boosting the burning of fat, especially in the liver, they
may improve liver function in overweight people.
“If we could develop a dietary strategy for reducing the
harmful accumulation of fat in the liver, using common
foods like grapes,” Shay said, “that would be good news.”
The study, which Shay conducted with colleagues at the
University of Florida and University of Nebraska, complements work with mice he leads at his OSU laboratory. In
one 2013 trial, he and his graduate students supplemented
the diets of overweight mice with extracts from Pinot noir
grapes harvested from Corvallis-area vineyards.
Some of the mice were fed a normal diet of “mouse chow,”
as Shay calls it, containing 10 percent fat. The rest were fed
a diet of 60 percent fat, the sort of unhealthy diet that would
pile excess pounds on a human frame.
“Our mice like that high-fat diet,” said Shay, “and they
over consume it. So they’re a good model for the sedentary person who eats too much snack food and doesn’t get
enough exercise.”
The grape extracts, scaled down to a mouse’s nutritional
needs, were about the equivalent of one and a half cups of
grapes a day for a person. “The portions are reasonable,”
said Shay, “which makes our results more applicable to
the human diet.”
Over a 10-week trial, the high-fat-fed mice developed
fatty liver and diabetic symptoms, “the same metabolic
consequences we see in many overweight, sedentary
people,” Shay said.
But the chubby mice that got the extracts accumulated
less fat in their livers, and they had lower blood sugar, than
those that consumed the high-fat diet alone. Ellagic acid
proved to be a powerhouse in this experiment, too, lowering
the high-fat-fed mice’s blood sugar to nearly the levels of
the lean, normally fed mice.
When Shay and his colleagues analyzed the tissues of the
continued on page B9
March 2015, “The Growers’ Guide” Page B9
Wine continued from page B8
fat mice that ate the supplements, they noted higher activity
levels of PPAR-alpha and PPAR-gamma, two proteins that
work within cells to metabolize fat and sugar.
Shay hypothesizes that the ellagic acid and other chemicals bind to these PPAR-alpha and PPAR-gamma nuclear
hormone receptors, causing them to switch on the genes that
trigger the metabolism of dietary fat and glucose. Commonly
prescribed drugs for lowering blood sugar and triglycerides
act in this way, Shay said.
The goal of his work, he added, is not to replace needed
medications but to guide people in choosing common, widely
available foods that have particular health benefits, including
boosting metabolic function.
“We are trying to validate the specific contributions of
certain foods for health benefits,” he said. “If you’re out
food shopping, and if you know a certain kind of fruit is
good for a health condition you have, wouldn’t you want
to buy that fruit?”
The research was supported by the Institute of Food
and Agricultural Science at the University of Florida and
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The study appeared in the January issue of the Journal of
Nutritional Biochemistry.
Shay’s research with mice was supported by the Blue
Mountain Horticultural Society, the Erath Family Foundation, and the OSU College of Agricultural Sciences.

Storage Options For Hay

USGC Corn Harvest Quality
Report A Hit With Mexican Buyers
From U.S. Grains Council
Given the integration of the North American markets,
buyers in Mexico are among the most responsive customers
to shifts in U.S. markets. Timely and accurate information
is valuable to sophisticated buyers, and the U.S. Grains
Council’s (USGC’s) annual Corn Harvest Quality Report
and Corn Export Cargo Quality Report have found eager
audiences in the Mexican feed and livestock industries.
“The Council’s dual corn quality reports are scoring
points with Mexican buyers,” said Julio Hernandez, the
Council’s director in Mexico. “We also appreciate two of
our delegates, Jim Steuver and Bill Christ, for providing a
U.S. farmers’ perspective, which is of great interest to our
partners in Mexico.”
Hernandez was reporting on a recent country-wide swing
in which he presented the 2014/2015 Corn Harvest Quality
Report to audiences in four cities. The report shows that the
record 2014 U.S. crop is of high quality with only minor
variations on the standardized test parameters, consistent
with anticipated weather-induced effects, meaning excellent
quality and no surprises.
The presentation team also included Javier Chavez, USGC
marketing specialist in Mexico. While the immediate topic
was the recently released harvest quality report, Chavez noted
that buyers were already looking ahead to the companion
/Corn Export Cargo Quality Report/, which will become
available this spring.
“The harvest quality report is followed by the export cargo
quality report, which is even more valuable to international
buyers,” Chavez said. “That won’t be available for another
few weeks, but our contacts are already asking questions.
This shows how much they have come to rely on the Council
for timely information.”
A consistent concern voiced by Mexican buyers is the
possibility for mycotoxins, but buyers also pressed for information about planting intentions and price expectations for
next year. Mexico is the largest export market for U.S. corn
this marketing year with accumulated exports and outstanding
sales totaling 8.3 million metric tons (327 million bushels)
as of Feb. 19. As the top buyer, the Mexican feed industry
tracks U.S. supply, demand and pricing very carefully.
The first editions of the Council’s Corn Harvest Quality
and Corn Export Cargo Quality Reports debuted following
the 2011 harvest. They have been presented by the Council’s international staff to thousands of buyers and other
interested parties in key markets around the world. Unique
in the U.S. industry, the reports help maintain the status of
the United States as the world’s most transparent and reliable supplier of corn.

By Diana Roberts, WSU Extension Regional Agronomist,
and Louise Lorent, Crop & Soil Sciences Research Assoc.
For the last 10 years, WSU Extension has maintained
an email listserv for organic grain growers which serves,
in part, to connect buyers and sellers of organic grain.
Recently, we added a searchable, electronic bulletin board
for this purpose at smallgrains.wsu.edu/organic-grain-salesbulletin-board/. If you wish to receive information about
organic production and market opportunities, email Diana
Roberts at [email protected]
Markets for organic grain tend to fluctuate with the
economy. At this time, it appears demand for organic grain
is growing faster than the supply. Last year, we interviewed
a dozen organic growers across the Inland Northwest regarding their production operations, which we will publish
as an Extension case study bulletin. Apart from one canola
grower who professed that marketing was not his strength,
the farmers we interviewed reported being able to sell all
their crops without meeting the demand.
Currently, our organic bulletin board has postings from
buyers wanting large quantities of mustard, wheat, barley,
corn, and pulse crops from as far afield as Oregon, South
Carolina, Connecticut, and Ontario (Canada). While we
cannot guarantee the stability or price premiums of these
markets, there appears to be ample opportunity for growers
interested in organic production.
What is the consumer demand for organic grains? A look at
the USDAAmber Waves pages showed that sales for organic
bread and grains more than doubled over the last 10 years.
While the organic market is still dominated by fruits and
vegetables, the volume of sales of other types of products
is considerable. Looking at package/prepared foods, breads
and grains, snack foods and condiments (probably the most
relevant markets to Inland Northwest grain growers), it’s
interesting to note that although the share of each category
in total organic food sales is not huge (we’re talking 10.6
percent for package foods, 9.1 percent for breads and grains,
and 5 percent of total organic food sales for snacks and condiments), the dollar value for each of these categories is still
growing steadily. Organic bread and grains sales amounted
to $1.4 billion in 2005 and $3.2 billion in 2014. The same
thing happened with condiments, since we’re talking about
mustard; $341 million in 2005, $1.1 billion in 2014. It almost
tripled in 10 years.

Sickness And Health
Between Men And Women
By Scott Weybright, Washington State University CAHNRS
Gender and personality matter in how people cope with
physical and mental illness, according to a paper by a
Washington State University scientist and colleagues at the
University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce.
Men are less affected by a single-symptom illness than
women, but are more affected when more than one symptom
is present. The number of symptoms doesn’t change how
women are affected, according to Robert Rosenman, WSU
professor in the Department of Economic Sciences.
Rosenman worked with Dusanee Kesavayuth and Vasileios
Zikos, both at UTCC in Bangkok, Thailand, on the study.
“Women are more impacted by illness than men, unless
more than one symptom is present,” said Rosenman. “Then
men are more impacted than women. And perhaps more importantly, personality affects how women handle becoming
sick, while men of all types react the same.”
The research is based on data collected in the British
Household Panel Survey, a national longitudinal data set
from the United Kingdom. Longitudinal data tracks the same
people at several points in time asking the same questions. The
panel included 2,859 people: 1,471 men and 1,388 women.
Two types of women resist mental illness
The survey asked people about their happiness and satisfaction with aspects of their life. It also asked about their
physical and mental health and about their personalities,
among other things. Rosenman and his colleagues analyzed
the data to see how personality and gender affected the way
people coped with becoming ill.
The researchers found that women with one of two distinct
personality types are less affected by mental illness than all
other personality types.
The first personality type, high levels of agreeableness,
experience high quality relationships in their lives. The
second type, women with low levels of conscientiousness,
have little need for achievement, order or persistence.
Rosenman said women with high agreeableness likely
have better social networks and therefore more support
for coping with mental illness. Women with low levels of
conscientiousness are more apt to feel out of control on a
daily basis, so they likely don’t see any impact from a mental
illness, he said.
“They didn’t feel in control to begin with,” he said. “So
they aren’t affected the way other women are.”
The study finds no correlation between personality type
and the impact of a mental illness in men.
Economics of happiness
Rosenman and his colleagues primarily focused on one
question in the British survey: How satisfied are you with
your health? Then they broke that down based on other
questions about gender and personality type. The study is
part of the growing field on the economics of happiness.
“Many people think economics only has to do with
money,” Rosenman said.
“But it’s much more than that. We’re starting to look at
what makes people happy and how that affects different
aspects of their lives.”
The paper was published in the February 2015 issue of
the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics,

Prairie Fare: Food Preparation
Evolves As The Family Nest Empties
By Julie Garden-Robinson, Food and Nutrition Specialist,NDSU Extension Service
“Mom, what college-credit class should
I take next fall?” my 16-year-old daughter
asked.
I gulped. College? Already?
My neighbor was surprised, too.
“Are you going to be a senior in high
school?” she asked my daughter.
My daughter nodded, and I started feeling very sentimental. My brain did a “flash
forward.” Before long, we will be wandering
around a family-sized nest with only one
“chick” left. Our youngest daughter is 11.
Although the first “bird” flew out of the
nest a couple of years ago to go to college
in our city, he winged his way home and set
up his own nest in our basement after a year
in the dorm. Our home cooking and accommodations are a bit better and less expensive
than a shoebox-sized dorm room.
I don’t think I will be the mother bird
booting the chicks out of their nest to soar on
their own. I hope not, anyway. I snapped out
of my sentimental journey quickly because
technically, everyone still is inhabiting the
Robinson nest.
Eventually, my husband and I will be
empty nesters and that will change a lot of
things, including our food preparation. From
1970 to 2012, many changes in household
size and makeup have occurred. The average
size of households decreased from 3.1 to 2.6
between 1970 and 2012, according to U.S.
Census Bureau statistics.
In 1970, 40.3 percent of households
consisted of married couples with children,
compared with 19.6 percent in 2012.
The number of men living alone has jumped
markedly in the last 45 years. In 1970, 5.6
percent of households were made up of men
living alone and 14 percent of households were
made up of women living alone. In 2012, 12.3
percent of households were made up of men
living solo, and 15.2 percent of households
consisted of women living alone.
Sometimes, when children move away, the
incentive to cook leaves along with the family
members. Cooking may not seem like it is
worth the effort, so some people might skip
meals or graze throughout the day instead of
having a balanced, enjoyable diet.
Regardless of the number of people in
your home, consider taking steps to having
healthful food options available for you and
any others in your home.
Maintaining a healthful diet is worth your
time and can be easier than you think. Have
some fun with it. Maybe your children refused to have liver and brussels sprouts, so
you deleted those from your menus. Now is
your chance to enjoy the food that you like.
What if all of your recipes are familysized? Try these tips to help reduce your
recipes to smaller amounts:
Choose recipes that are easy to divide
mathematically, or make the full recipe and
freeze the rest.
If a recipe calls for a can of beans or soup
and you would like to divide the recipe in half,
use what you need and refrigerate or freeze
the remaining food. Label the container with
the contents and date.
Add seasonings gradually. Sometimes you
may need to add more (or less) of the spice
to reach the desired flavor.
Use a smaller pan for your reduced-sized
recipes. Check for doneness of halved recipes
five to 10 minutes sooner than the original
recipe.
Keep notes about what works and what
doesn’t.
You might find that shopping the salad
bar at the grocery store is a good way to
avoid wasted produce. Perhaps you need a
small amount of onion or pepper in a recipe,
so buying some precut onions and peppers
might help you avoid waste.
What if you don’t like leftovers? You could
trade extra portions of meals with a friend
and freeze for later. Or consider leftovers as
“planned-overs” and try them in completely
different recipes.
Try adding leftover fruit to muffin, quickbread or pancake batter or blending leftover
fruit with yogurt to make a dessert. If you
bought a precooked chicken at the deli, use
the rest in soup, sandwiches and salads.
For people 60 and older, congregate
meals or meals on wheels are good options
to maintain a balanced diet. Check out your
local resources to learn more.

Two” (available at http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/

NRCS & Forest Service Partnership
Continue Conservation Work
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced recently nearly $37
million in investments to mitigate wildfire
threats to landowners and communities. This
is the second year of a partnership between
the U.S. Forest Service and the Natural
Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)
to help improve the health and resiliency of
forest ecosystems where public and private
lands meet.
Joined by partners at an event in Idaho,
Under Secretary for Natural Resources and
Environment Robert Bonnie unveiled the 15
Chiefs’ Joint Landscape Restoration Partnership projects for 2015. Located across the
country from Washington to Vermont and
Arizona to Ohio, NRCS and Forest Service
will invest $10 million in new projects to
improve conditions on public and private
lands. One new project is in the Upper
North Fork region near Gibbonsville, Idaho
designed to reduce the risk of catastrophic
wildfire to communities along a portion of
the Highway 93 corridor.
“By leveraging the technical and financial
resources of both agencies, this coordinated
effort is helping to restore lands across large
landscapes regardless of whether they are on
public or private lands,” Bonnie said. “Our
successes from the 2014 projects demonstrate
that these partnerships make a difference
on the ground and we are grateful for the
cooperation of several partners.”
Bonnie noted that in some cases these
new projects build on last year’s efforts. The
partnership made investments in 2014 that
will result in conservation improvements to
over 266,000 acres. NRCS and Forest Service will provide an additional $27 million
to continue work on 2014 projects.
In addition to NRCS and Forest Service
investments, partners are contributing more
than $5 million in the 2015 projects over
three years in financial, technical and in-kind
services. These 15 new projects, coupled with
the 13 announced last year, will help mitigate
wildfire threats to communities and landowners, protect water quality and supply, and
improve wildlife habitat for at-risk species
in high priority landscapes across the US.
For example, USDA support in 2014 enabled Tim Fisher of the Oregon East Face of
the Elkhorn Mountains Partnership, to open
up the tree canopy on 232 acres of private
land which will reduce the risk for wildfire,
help with soil erosion, and allow the trees to
grow taller and stronger making them more
marketable.
“Our agencies are being proactive to make
sure conservation work flows seamlessly
from private to public lands, ensuring crucial
wildfire and water concerns are addressed and
allowing people, like Fisher, to preserve their
family lands,” NRCS Chief Jason Weller said.
“Strategic investments across landscapes
help create resilient forests, grasslands and
watersheds while sustaining communities,”
said Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell.
“Treating lands to reduce wildfire threats is a
smart investment that will protect vast areas
of land and potentially save of millions of
taxpayer dollars.”
2015 Projects include:
Idaho—Upper North Fork Project:
Idaho’s Upper North Fork is a great example
of a project that provides a big benefit for a
small investment. Fires often spread from
private property onto public lands where
they are difficult to control and become
wildfires. The fix is to stop fires at the point
where they start, before they have a chance
to spread. However, many private landowners do not have the technical knowledge or
funds to treat hazardous fuels on their property. This project targets private lands where
fires have a high probability of starting and
adjacent National Forest lands where they
will initially spread. Treating fuels in these
areas is relatively inexpensive and protects
a vast area of public land. Implementing this
simple solution would be unlikely without
coordination among the partners.
Hawaii—Koolau Forest Protection: The
Koolau Mountain forests supply groundwater for the Pearl Harbor Aquifer, used by
over 40% of the population of the State of
Hawaii. Unfortunately, groundwater levels
in the aquifer have declined by half since
1910. Protecting the aquifer from further
decline is vital for Hawaii’s sustainability
and economy. The Koolau Mountains also
has one of the highest densities of rare and
endangered species in the world including
the beloved ‘elepaio bird, the Hawaiian
hoary bat, tree snails, insects and plant, many
of which exist nowhere else. By removing
invasive species and fencing out feral pigs,
this project will help protect water quality
and supply for communities and agriculture
and improve habitat quality for at-risk species
while allowing native Hawaiians to use the
forest for their traditional customs.
South Carolina—Indian Creek Woodland
Savanna Restoration Initiative: In 2004, the
Indian Creek Woodland Savanna Restoration
Initiative restored woodland savanna habitat
on 8,300 acres of the Sumter National Forest
as well as 7,700 acres of private land. Funding from this year’s announcement will help
accelerate woodland savanna restoration,
reduce wildfire risk and enhance water quality
on 21,000 acres of public land and 19,000
acres of private land. The restoration will
also provide crucial habitat for important and
declining grassland birds, including Northern Bobwhite, Loggerhead Shrike, Prairie
Warbler and Bachman’s Sparrow.

A Tree Fruit Website That
Would Make Willy Wonka Proud
By Joshua Paulsen, from WSU’s “On Solid Ground”
Washington State University’s new tree fruit website,
launching in March 2015, will be instrumental in communicating information to growers.
I peered over the guardrail in one of Stemilt’s processing facilities. Stemilt, a packing house headquartered in
Wenatchee, Washington, is, as their website points out,
“world famous” for delivering remarkably delicious tree
fruit throughout the world.
“What is that?” I asked, referring to the large, noisy
mechanical machine into which the Rainier cherries were
being whisked.
“Oh, that’s a camera,” my escort explained. Thousands of
pictures were being taken every minute, multiple photos of
each small fruit, to assess the qualities of millions of cherries headed to customers that afternoon. The truly “smart”
feature of this camera allowed automated routing of each
cherry to one of roughly a dozen conveyor belts, each carrying a different size or grade of cherry.
My perception of the tree fruit industry was rocked by
my Willy-Wonka-like tour. The endless fields of fruit trees
I saw on my way to Stemilt led me to imagine a romantic,
old-world industry, but behind closed doors was a sophisticated, ultramodern operation.
Delivering the answers
My trip to Wenatchee, where I toured facilities and talked
with growers about industry needs, was part of a discovery
mission for a new, comprehensive website to support growing, distributing and consuming “world famous” cherries,
apples, pears, and other types of stone fruit in Washington.
The CAHNRS Communications web development team
is working with WSU Extension leader and globally recognized horticulturist Desmond Layne to construct a new,
comprehensive tree fruit website—the “world’s best” tree
fruit website, as Dr. Layne characterized it.
What I didn’t know was that the camera that left me
speechless was established technology, and there were new
technologies, some mechanical and others biological, on
the horizon. The Washington State Tree Fruit Commission
had pledged $32 million to bolster WSU’s tree fruit research
program. In addition to increasing research, part of those
funds were to be used for technology transfer, and our tree
fruit website was going to be instrumental in communicating
information to growers.
With such amazing technologies proliferated throughout
the industry, it’s fair to question the significance of a website
to that industry. But as we learned, WSU researchers and
extension specialists, and even third party websites, had
mountains of important data to share with growers, and it was
spread across the Internet like the apple orchards throughout
central Washington. Furthermore, Dr. Layne had a reputation
for making useful and compelling videos for growers and
consumers alike, and this new website made for the ideal
stage to present his work.
My visit to Stemilt was months ago, and now we are pleased
to announce that this March WSU will launch treefruit.wsu.
edu, the world’s best, most comprehensive website for tree
fruit growers. Not only does the website catalog the thousands
of online tree fruit resources and showcase videos by WSU
scientists and researchers, it guides both the inexperienced
and seasoned grower to produce world-famous fruit. The
website features a robust search engine, topic-based articles,
and is optimized for use on a mobile phone. In my mind,
it still isn’t as cool as the cherry camera, or Willy Wonka’s
chocolate river, but it is a great leap forward to supporting
an industry that provides delicious and nutritious food for
millions of people throughout the world.

How Many Bubbles Are
Needed In Bubbly?
By Scott Weybright, WSU-CAHNRS “Voice of the Vine”
Fizzy bubbles are the big draw for those who love sparkling wine, but can they tell the difference between varying
carbonation levels? And do they have preferences as to how
much carbonation should be in their wine?
That’s what Washington State University School of Food
Science graduate student Kenny McMahon is looking at as
part of his Ph.D. dissertation with advisor Carolyn Ross.
Findings from his first study “showed that consumers
like the lower carbonation levels but have a greater preference for the higher carbonated wines,” said McMahon, who
presented his data at the Washington Association of Wine
Grape Growers annual conference last week.
A second study is being conducted.
Detection and preference
For the first study, he convened two panels, one with
trained wine tasters and one with typical wine consumers.
McMahon made his own sparkling wines—with differing
carbonation levels—in a commercial Washington winery.
The carbonation range was 0-7.5 grams of carbon dioxide
per liter.
The trained panel was studied regarding attributes related
to carbonation. Panelists were asked to consider the perception
of bite/burn, carbonation/bubble-pain, foaminess, numbing,
prickly/pressure and tingliness, as well as various aromas,
flavors and basic tastes.
McMahon said the trained panel started to pick up those
various attributes at lower carbonation levels than the typical
consumers, but most participants noted the carbonation by
about 2 grams per liter.
The consumer panel was studied to see if participants
noticed the differing levels of carbonation and what amount
they preferred.
McMahon also asked both panels to think about the
carbonation in each sip and how it impacted the sensation
in their mouths.
“We were looking to see at what point people noticed
the carbonation-related attributes and what wine they liked
the most,” he said.
Various grapes, carbonation levels
Sparkling wine is any wine containing carbonation, which
gives rise to bubbles. The wine can be made using a variety
of grapes, such as chardonnay or pinot noir.
Some sparkling wines, such as Portugal’s vinho verde,
benefit from lower carbonation levels, but there haven’t been
many studies on the subject.
Traditional producers keep a steady 9-11 grams per liter
because that’s the way champagne was originally made. A
proportion of U.S. producers of sparkling wine follow that
tradition. But only wine made in the Champagne region of
France can be labeled with the term “champagne.”
