2000-10-31 Mowing Mowed wheat stubble and fallow plots in the Bio-complexity. Mowed the wheat stubble to keep weeds from producing seeds. Mowed the fallow plots so that we could till the fall fallow plots and make the spring fallow plots look good for the winter. Not sure which tractor and mower was used? The JD 6400 or JD 7400 tractor was most likely used. The only mower around at this time was the JD 10' bush-hog mower.

2000-08-22 Mowing Mowed all the plots that had spring wheat growing in them. Because this was the first year of the study we planted spring wheat so that we would have the crop growing in each plot, instead of leaving them fallow until this fall. The spring wheat did not develop enough to harvest (take any yield data). We just mowed them down to simulated harvest.
