MSU sorghum research focuses on aphid control

By Ms. Bonnie A. Coblentz

MSU Extension Service

Fewer Mississippi producers are looking at grain sorghum as a crop rotation option since an introduced pest became a major problem, a trend Mississippi State University researchers are working to reverse.

Sugarcane aphids can be seen as dozens of yellowish dots on the surface of this grain sorghum leaf on Sept. 15, 2016 on a Mississippi State University research field in Starkville. Aphids secrete a sticky substance known as honeydew after drawing nutrients from host plants. (Photo by MSU Extension Service/Kevin Hudson)

Jump Start Read for the Record

The Winston County Library participated in the nation-wide “Jump Start Read For The Record” program last week at Fair Elementary school.  Denise Dickerson, shown hear in a pre-k classroom, read the book The Bear Ate The Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach.  The story is a tale of a bear lost in a city who finds an unattended sandwich in the park.  The bear’s journey from forest to city and back home again is full of happy accidents, funny encounters, and sensory delights.  The story is so engrossing it’s not until the very end, when we discover the narrator is a shaggy dog, that we begin to suspect that this is a TALL tale.  Did the dog actually eat the sandwich, or the bear?  This story  presents an opportunity to lead a conversation about honesty and taking responsibility for your actions.  Children can deepen their understanding of the story by reflecting on and making connections between the events in the book and their own lives.  “This is a wonderful way for parents, teachers and caregivers to allow children to develop expressive language skills by talking about what happens in the book and their own experiences”, said librarian Beth Edwards.  “We are very proud to participate in this program each year with our local schools.”
