Videos demonstrate wheat growth stages

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With much of the winter wheat crop across Ohio approaching critical growth stages for crucial management decision-making, a wheat expert from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University offers a series of YouTube videos that demonstrate how growers can correctly identify their crops’ various growth stages.The series is designed as a tool to help growers understand the various stages of wheat growth and to know what management strategies can be used during each growth stage, said Pierce Paul, an Ohio State University Extension wheat researcher.The videos, which begin with wheat at Feekes Growth Stage 6, show the key growth stages of wheat throughout the growing season, said Paul, who is also a plant pathologist with the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center.Assessing riskGrowers need to know how to judge wheat’s growth stages so they can make appropriate decisions on when to apply nitrogen and herbicides and whether they will need to apply a fungicide, Paul said. Understanding wheat’s growth stages also helps growers judge the potential for injury to their plant stands under the recent cold snap that hit the region, he said. “Failure to correctly identify wheat growth stages could lead to improper timing of fertilizer and herbicide applications, which could lead to ineffective use of these inputs and even crop injury,” Paul said. “Plus, knowing the growth stage is important for assessing whether the crop is at risk for freezing injury — wheat at Feekes 6 and later are more prone to injury than wheat between Feekes 4 and 5.”The first video, Feekes Growth Stage 6, can be viewed at go.osu.edu/feekes6.Feekes Growth Stages 7 and 8 can be viewed at go.osu.edu/feekes78.

HC sets aside ₹2000 waiver to sugar mills

first_imgThe Allahabad High Court on Thursday set aside the Uttar Pradesh government’s order in which it had waived about ₹2000 crore of interest amount which the sugar mills owed to farmers due to delayed payment of cane arrears. The court order came in response to a petition filed by farmer-activist V.M. Singh challenging the waiver of interest amount which the mill owners were supposed to pay to the farmers for the years 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15.Sugar mill owners are supposed to pay interest on cane arrears to the farmers in case of delay in payment.The interest amount for 2012-13 and 2013-14 of over ₹1,300 crore was waived by the State government on May 22, 2015, by accepting the request of mill owners that they were not in a position to pay interest for delay in payment of cane price to the farmers as they incurred losses allegedly due to reduction in the price of sugar. The State government, through an order in Oct. 2016, further waived over ₹700 crore for interest payment.last_img read more

We still have a lot of things to do and take care of.”Arespacochaga, meanwhile, downplayed the back-to-back 20-point victories to start the season, saying the Eagles still have their work cut out for them if they want to reach the finals again.“Our mentality and philosophy is ‘next game’ and it might have been a 20-point win for us, but we want to keep on improving,” he said. “We don’t want to look at that 20-point win and get big-headed. It doesn’t show how hard we had to fight, especially defensively against all their (UP’s) good guards.” Ateneo guard Tyler Tio wasted little time showing the skills that made him a blue-chip recruit a year ago, while the rest of the Blue Eagles once again stamped their class against another contender.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters The Eagles extended a 44-36 halftime lead to 11 points in the third period, before enjoying a 24-point buffer late in the game as Tio, who missed the opening-day win over Adamson due to an ankle injury, caught fire with 10 of his output in the final period.“We’re just happy for Tyler because he’s been working hard since last season,” said Ravena. “We always knew he can contribute.”“I was just doing my job for the team,” said Tio, a standout from Xavier High School, who initially only had Canadian citizenship before applying for a Philippine passport last year.Three days after hitting the triple that lifted the Maroons to a 74-73 win over University of Santo Tomas, Paul Desiderio was held to just nine points on 4-of-18 shooting as he struggled to find his rhythm. But rookie Juan Gomez De Liano got going early and finished with 16 points for the Maroons, who fell to a tie with Far Eastern U at 1-1.The Tamaraws turned back University of the East, 90-83, earlier after another strong game from Ron Dennison, who had 16 points.

Passage of New Fisheries Act Remains A Gov’t Priority – Minister Shaw

first_img Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, says passage of the proposed new Fisheries Act remains a priority for the Government, in keeping with plans to institute the necessary framework to more effectively regulate the sector. Story Highlights “This Bill will not only provide the legal provision to facilitate sustainable fisheries management and development, but will also establish the Fisheries Authority that will transform the (Fisheries) Division into an entity that will be better staffed and resourced to serve the fisheries and aquaculture subsectors,” he explained. Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, says passage of the proposed new Fisheries Act remains a priority for the Government, in keeping with plans to institute the necessary framework to more effectively regulate the sector.The new legislation is expected to replace the Fisheries Act of 1976, and Mr. Shaw has indicated that the Administration will seek to continue “earnest” implementation of the supporting legislative and institutional framework.“This Bill will not only provide the legal provision to facilitate sustainable fisheries management and development, but will also establish the Fisheries Authority that will transform the (Fisheries) Division into an entity that will be better staffed and resourced to serve the fisheries and aquaculture subsectors,” he explained.The Minister was speaking during the International Fisherman’s Day Conference at the Cardiff Hotel and Spa, Runaway Bay, St. Ann on Friday (June 29).Mr. Shaw said the Government is looking to maximize the fisheries industry’s potential to contribute to Jamaica’s economic growth.To this end, he said several key areas will be explored to see how best these can be leveraged to facilitate the sector’s advancement through a programme being targeted for implementation over the next three years.“We must get to (the) point of a modern and coordinated fishing industry that will help us to achieve our aspiration for wealth creation and economic growth,” he said.The Minister argued, however, that for the industry to contribute to economic growth, stakeholders must be willing to evolve and adapt, adding that the new legislation will assist in facilitating that.Mr. Shaw said focus, in this regard, will also be placed on two supporting fisheries projects during the current fiscal year.These are a World Bank-funded community-based development project aimed at strengthening stakeholders’ resilience, and an Inter- American Development Bank-financed initiative through which the turnaround time for issuing fishing licenses will be improved to one week, while facilitating an express delivery service component.“All Jamaicans have a role to play in safeguarding our marine ecosystem including our coral reefs. But do not let it escape you that every single one of you must be a part of this process. All hands must be on deck or it will prove almost impossible or that much harder to achieve our goals,” Mr. Shaw emphasized.Meanwhile, the Minister is encouraging stakeholder compliance with the sector’s governing regulations.He said the fisher folk and other stakeholders also have a role to play in supporting the Government’s engagements, adding that “the safety and sustainability of our industry depend on all of us”.The International Fisherman’s Day Conference was held in observance of Fisherman’s Day 2018 under the theme: ‘Securing Sustainable Fisheries- Impact of Crime’. The new legislation is expected to replace the Fisheries Act of 1976, and Mr. Shaw has indicated that the Administration will seek to continue “earnest” implementation of the supporting legislative and institutional framework. last_img read more
