Farm Gate Blog

"The Farm Gate is a place to go to find integrated information across a variety of disciplines, including crop and animal sciences, ag economics, ag engineering, and veterinary medicine," explained U of I Extension marketing specialist Darrel Good.  "These disciplines will be addressed as they meet, intersect and often intertwine to shape the environment in which the ag community lives and work."  Recent postings on the blog by Ellis include such topics as 2006 cropping decisions, the recent federal budget reconciliation legislations, tax planning, and ethanol.  The site also includes links to farmdoc and U of I sites focused on integrated pest management, livestock, and agronomy and links to Extension programs in several other states as well.
