Agriculture making headlines

Wintering in the garden Headline

Start by choosing the right container, and bigger is better. You want plenty of potting soil between the interior pot wall and your actual plant roots. This provides a layer of insulation for those tender roots when they’re above ground, exposed to the cold ambient air. You also want a pot that has drainage holes to allow water to escape so that your plants don’t become waterlogged. Learn more about how to overwinter your outdoor plants »

Professor honored Headline

In recognition of his global reputation for quantitative analysis, intelligent manufacturing, and statistical process control in the forest industries, Timothy M. Young of Knoxville has been awarded one of highest honors bestowed by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Forester appointed Headline

Agriculture Commissioner Jai Templeton is announcing the appointment of Heather Slayton as assistant state forester for the Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) Division of Forestry.
