Nitrogen Fertilizer Meeting

 The Minnesota Department of Agriculture's statewide series of public hearings on limiting the use of nitrogen fertilizer comes Wednesday, July 25 to St. Cloud. The fourth of five public hearings convenes from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at River's Edge Convention Center. The proposed rule would restrict farmers from applying nitrogen fertilizer in the fall or on frozen soils in areas of the state that are vulnerable to nitrate contamination. That includes places where public drinking water supplies are at risk of groundwater contamination from farm runoff. Nitrate contamination in groundwater is a problem in some areas of the state, and agriculture officials say they're trying to prevent it from becoming worse. Hearings are being held in in Farmington, Stewartville, Worthington, St. Cloud and Park Rapids. Some agribusiness groups have criticized the so-called Groundwater Protection Rule, and Republican legislative leaders have moved to delay its implementation. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture hopes to finalize the rule by the end of the year.

Two drivers suffered serious injuries in an intersection crash Wednesday afternoon south of Willmar, and both were airlifted from the scene. The Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office did not identify the drivers. The incident is still under investigation. The accident was reported at 3:57 p.m. Wednesday at 30th Street and 165th Avenue Southeast in Roseland Township near Blomkest. According to a news release from Sheriff's Sgt. Dave Nester, a 2001 International farm truck driven by a 63-year-old Blomkest man collided with a 2008 Ford pickup driven by a 43-year-old New London man. The truck, used for hauling turkey manure, was empty. The drivers were airlifted by Life Link and North Memorial Air Ambulances.


Walleye Numbers

GARRISON, Minn. - The DNR has new indications that walleye numbers on Lake Mille Lacs are up, after finishing field work for a comprehensive walleye study. In May, the DNR tagged 20,000 walleye 14 inches and bigger. Then they came back and pulled in gill nets to count the fish. The ratio of tagged walleye to non-tagged walleye will help them know how many total walleye are in the lake. If those numbers hold up, it would mean there are at least twice as many walleye in Lake Mille Lacs as 2014, the last time they did a study like this, when they counted 249,000. But that would still be far less than the 1.1 million counted in 2002. The DNR blames climate change and invasive species like zebra mussels for affecting the walleye count. Parsons says the lake has a high number of walleye born in 2013. And now that they are fully grown, it's helping the overall count. If there are signs of a turn-around, next year the catch-and-release rule could be reversed.The DNR will have the full estimates from this study finished by this fall, when they do their annual assessment. That number will then determine whether people will be able to keep walleye they catch next summer.
