TMC, October 25

TMC, October 25

Greetings readers! On this October day, we’ve got a great issue of TMC ready for you. So fall into like you would into a pile of leaves:

  • Officials are reporting that there are no new signs of invasive mussels or their larvae in Montana waterbodies, which is a pretty good sign that diligence and check stations are paying off
  • The USDA reports that future temperature and soil moisture changes may mean that locations of agricultural regions may change as well
  • A Shepherd, MT based firm that sells “off the shelf wetlands” or floating islands, is poised to go international with their products
  • We know what Big Sky Watershed Corps members John Lange and Willie Friedman did last summer: they studied canal seepage in the Musselshell watershed
  • An MSU Professor has been studying how irrigation timing affects wheat yield, and that information can be used for water savings
  • Civil Eats has an article about the current status of vacancies and reorganization efforts within USDA, and how that is affecting Farm Bill 2018 work
  • The House Natural Resources Committee recently approved five bills that would make changes to the Endangered Species Act
  • And American Agriculturalist reports that beneficial bacteria may be getting caught in friendly fire in farmers’ war on weeds.

All of that, plus new grants, and information on the upcoming MACD Convention in this week’s The Montana Conservationist: TMC 2017-10-25
