  • University of Kentucky Extension Agronomist Dr. Chad Lee is encouraging producers across the state to closely examine their soybeans. Several soybeans have turned yellow in the past few weeks and further examination revealed little to no nodules.

    Nodules, located on the roots, are critical to soybeans because it is the bacteria living in the nodules that biologically fixate atmospheric nitrogen for the plant. Soybeans demand a high amount of nitrogen for production, and if the plant cannot fixate its own nitrogen, yields will be greatly decreased.

  • One of the more threatening parables to anyone with a conscience is the parable of the good Samaritan. Considering that it is a parable about helping a person in dire straits, it’s not hard to understand why we cringe under the many verbs of helping the down and out man. What is most interesting to me is the unique difficulty it poses to people who consider themselves faithful to God. Kindness to those in need should be right up our alley, but the parable suggests that the good guys in the religious world have an Achilles heel in the mercy department.
