Key features include: •Enhanced events calendar with state park events, season dates, application openings, fishing tournaments, open house meetings and more; •A complete list of forms and permits with more than half of the previous paper versions being replaced by online versions; •A central location for all maps; •Specific visitor feedback from each park; and •Frequently asked questions. In addition, a new mobile app will also launch later this month that features a digital backpack so users can customize it with favorite maps, licenses and handbooks. The app will provide the ability to view maps offline if the user is in an area with little to no cell phone service. Residents and nonresidents will be able to sign up for notifications regarding hunting season start and end dates and application opening and closing dates. Users need to know that this new mobile app is designed for Android systems 6 and up and iOS systems 10 and up and that they may need to update their software if the app does not download to this new version. Learn more about the new website and when the official mobile app will be unveiled by following us on Facebook or on Twitter at @SDGameFishParks. Do Big Yields Mean Big Money? BROOKINGS, S.D. - Do you believe the highest yields return the greatest profit? Are you managing for maximum yields? Do you attempt to manage your corn crop for the highest yields as a result of what yield contest winners say? SDSU Extension agronomy specialists say if you have answered yes to any of these questions, you might be missing some profit. "The highest, or maximum yields do not necessarily correspond to the highest net returns," said Anthony Bly, SDSU Extension Soils Field Specialist. "Accepting yields below the maximum in your area may be in your best interest." He, along with colleagues Sara Berg, SDSU Extension Agronomy Field Specialist and David Karki, SDSU Extension Agronomy Field Specialist discuss this idea in the following article. They point to a replicated research project that compared nutrient application rates. "As our agricultural systems become more tested by economic bottom lines and environmental concerns, the importance of strict management of our nutrient resources cannot be overstated," Bly said. This corn study in Minnehaha County compared costbenefit ratios associated with different nutrient recommendation strategies. "Although the highest yielding treatment was from the Maximum nutrient application strategy with 192.9 2018 Governor’s Conference On Tourism Is “On The Move” Saving You Money 2017 Ford Fiesta SE Hatchback, 14K..$11,500 2016 Chevy Malibu Classic LT, 34K.......$14,900 2015 Chevy Equinox, AWD, 67K..........$14,950 2012 Chevy Silverado,Ext. cab 4x4.........$16,900 2012 Chevy Silverado, 3/4T ,4X4.......$15,600 2011 Chevy Impala LT, Moon roof........$10,000 2007 Chevy Silverado, Ext. cab.............$6,500 2007 Chevy Uplander, van, 117K.........$4,500 bushels per acre, the most profitable nutrient management strategy was the N only (nitrogen only) application, which had the lowest yield," Berg said. A very close second, separated by only $0.83 net return, was in the field that followed the University recommendations based on unbiased nutrient research calibration and found within the SDSU Extension Fertilizer Recommendation Guide. Attempting to go after the maximum is not profitable with a loss of $-129.21 compared with University recommendations. The What if? treatment uses the yield from the Maximum treatment only to compare a What if scenario for nutrient rates more in line with what producers are doing in the field, which is $104.30/a nutrient cost; this What if? treatment still lost $-67.82 compared with the University recommendations. "The secret to profitable nutrient application is knowing how much to apply based on accurate field yield history and soil test knowledge," Karki said. He explained that for the best yield-to-profit outcome, nutrient rates should be based on sound university recommendations, which do not include nutrient applications, based on crop nutrient removal. In this research, soil test P (phosphorus), K (potassium), and Zn (zinc) were in the "Very High" (VH) soil test category and therefore required no additional nutrient application.
