"Iberian Agriculture and History Sites: Discovery Tour of Spain"

By Colorado State University Extension

 

From the majesty of Andalusia to the capital city of Madrid, Spain is filled with history and a rich and rewarding agricultural heritage. This very special itinerary delves into the Moorish culture of the Southern peninsula with historic visits to UNESCO World Heritage sites combined with the agriculture and unique products that make Spain a major provider in the European marketplace. Our tour is filled with contrasts – the richness of antiquity, the modern processes of agricultural production, the visits, sounds and tastes that are today’s Spain. A limited number of travelers will experience Iberia this fall.

Freeze Injury on Wheat

By R.F. Meyer


Freezing temperatures can affect wheat fields within the Colorado High Plains Region some seasons. In fields where only some of the tillers have been damaged, there is still plenty of time for undamaged tillers to compensate and minimize any potential yield loss. However, frost damaged wheat heads will be permanently damaged. Wheat heads emerging white in color indicate frost damage and will not produce seeds.
