Familiar names such as Frazee, Breckenridge, Pelican Rapids and Barnesville may soon disappear off the Lake Park-Audubon sports schedules. Such schools as Climax-Fisher, Ada-Borup and Fosston could replace those teams by the 2007-08 season, if the Raider Nation has its wish. Preliminary steps have been taken by the LP-A school board to withdraw from the Heart O'Lakes Conference and join the Pine to Prairie Conference, ending an association with the HOL that has existed since the 1989-90 season.
There's no doubt that early planting is important for high corn yields. Extensive research over many locations and years in Minnesota has shown the yield advantage of early-planted corn. And Minnesota corn growers have responded by planting corn earlier. Corn is now planted an average of 23 days earlier compared to the mid 1960's. Since 1968, the average planting date for Minnesota's corn acreage has been earlier by about one-half day per year.
