France Facing 30-year Low in Wheat Yields

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News France Facing 30-year Low in Wheat Yields Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 9, 2016 A new report from France says the nation is facing a “catastrophic” 30 year low in wheat yields. The Agriculture Ministry for France, the European Union’s biggest grain producer, says the country is heading for its worst wheat harvest in three decades due to heavy rains and a lack of sunlight. Wheat output is projected to fall by 30 percent from the 2015 harvest to 29.1 million metric tons, the lowest level since the drought year of 1986. A local farmers union says some farms are bracing for a 75 percent drop in production.The drop in French production comes at a period of high output in other wheat-producing countries, which has led to a fall in world prices, further adding to the woes of French farmers. France is currently the top wheat exporter in the EU, but that status is in jeopardy.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Previous articleDuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update 8/9/16Next articleCorn and Soybeans Need Rain Now Hoosier Ag Today SHARE France Facing 30-year Low in Wheat Yields Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Navigating the Mid Season Fungicide Debate

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Navigating the Mid Season Fungicide Debate Previous articleThe Future of Weed ResistanceNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 19, 2017 Andy Eubank SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 19, 2017 Home Indiana Agriculture News Navigating the Mid Season Fungicide Debate Fungicide debateWeather conditions this season have presented Indiana farmers with potentially tricky decisions for fungicide applications. Many farmers have significant acres with limited stands, so do they shut down investment on those acres or try to protect what is there? Andrew Ferrel is an Indiana commercial agronomist with Mycogen Seeds who says there will probably be situations where you need to make the fungicide investment.“The stand that is there, those plants that are present are going to be more valuable towards yield than what they were,” he told HAT. “So I don’t think that every field a fungicide application is going to be necessary, but I think there’s going to be some situations where we’ve got to protect that yield. You’ve got to kind of bite your lip and make the application because if you’ve got a susceptible hybrid present in the field, the disease pressure gets high, I think that need might be there. Those plants are valuable.”He added scouting is very important this year, especially where stands are thin. The knowledge you gain is valuable even on fields you elect not to control.“The best control is preventative control,” Ferrel says. “As an example, if you’re seeing southern rust pop up in the field, you want to be timely with an application and get ahead of it because fungicides are best used as a preventative rather than a curative. So just being out and present and looking at what’s going on, very important, because otherwise if you just wait until the combine rolls the field, you’ve lost yield. You don’t know why. You start blaming the wrong things. You start changing your management practices from year to year because you’ve got maybe a skewed opinion or misinterpreted why you lost yield.”Dow AgroSciences received Chinese approval of its Enlist corn about a month ago and Mycogen Seeds will be the first to sell the new product this fall for the 2018 season.“We’re excited to be able to offer a better form of weed control. Especially the last few years we’ve seen a lot of weed escapes due to the weather or spring residuals not being able to clean up fields the way we want. So, just being able to have another tool in the toolbox and we’re excited too with the genetics that we’ll be able to offer.”He said they’ve been sitting on some newer hybrids stacked with the Enlist trait, and now they’ll finally be able to share those with farmers.last_img read more

NAFTA Talks Far from Over

first_img Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC that the North American Free Trade Agreement renegotiations are “far from being completed.” While noting that progress was made on easier provisions, he says “very little has been done on the hard issues,” including automotive trade and agriculture. Ross says President Trump could still choose to withdrawal from the agreement, saying a final renegotiated deal “will either be 100 percent or zero percent” acceptable. However, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp Wednesday said: “I don’t think the president is going to be cancelling it,” saying it would be “obviously bad,” if he did. The next series of talks are to begin February 26th in Mexico City. Meanwhile, there’s speculation that the bid to salvage the free-trade pact will continue beyond an end of March deadline, which was set to avoid Mexico’s presidential race.Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico is urging Congress to “step up” and tell President Trump that there is widespread support for the NAFTA modernization effort, but not an exit from the trade deal. The Democrat says Trump “cannot unilaterally repeal” trade laws regarding NAFTA, “even if he can issue unilateral statements” regarding NAFTA participation, according to Politico. The comments came during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing earlier this week. Udall says the withdraw threat is “a tactic doomed to fail,” and adds that, if carried through, “our economy and border will suffer great damage.” The President also received a letter from high ranking Senate Republicans before his State of the Union Address earlier this week, highlighting the economic benefits of the deal, particularly for the agricultural and manufacturing sectors. The group, led by Colorado Republican Cory Gardner, says modernizing the deal would be “the next step to advance the economy.” Senate Agriculture Chair Pat Roberts also signed the letter, along with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and others.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News NAFTA Talks Far from Over Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Jan 31, 2018 NAFTA Talks Far from Over Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for February 1, 2018Next articleEPA, Army Corps, Sign WOTUS Delay NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Summer Heat Caused Yield Loss and Stalk Issues

first_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 8, 2018 SHARE Summer Heat Caused Yield Loss and Stalk IssuesRyan PielWhile the Indiana harvest is progressing, it is slow going for many Central Indiana farmers as stalk quality is causing harvest problems. It is a problem that has been reported around the state; poor stalk quality is causing a lot of corn to go down. Ryan Piel, field agronomist with Pioneer, says, “Most guys are managing to get under it and get it all picked up.  But, there is a lot a lot of heartache out there when you have to harvest it. It makes everything take longer.”Piel says corn yields are good but not as good as last year on average. He blames the July heat, “Those hot nights that never let the plants cool down, I think, really took the top end off yields this year.”Another issue that is slowing harvest is lots of green stem and green leaf matter in soybeans, “The beans are unlikely to be dry. They are going to be tough to cut. It is just going to add a lot of complexity to it.” Piel reports corn harvest is complete in some areas with growers now concentrating on soybeans.

Motorists Encouraged to be Prepared for Large Equipment Encounters

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Sep 15, 2020 SHARE Motorists Encouraged to be Prepared for Large Equipment Encounters SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Motorists Encouraged to be Prepared for Large Equipment Encounters Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.As harvest operations begin to ramp up, rural roads and highways will also see an uptick in large equipment, and motorists are asked to be alert and be patient as the equipment operators navigate to their destinations. A car or truck really has no chance against some of the large machinery, weighing sometimes more than 40,000 pounds, so on those 55 miles per hour county roads, be ready to slow way down.Marv Ulmet, Bane Welker Application Equipment Specialist says you’ll also see the slow-moving vehicle signs when it’s time to slow.“That is an orange and red triangle that we place on every piece of equipment nowadays, and that tells you that that machine will be running 25 MPH or less down the road,” he said. “We also have another way of telling motorists how fast the speed is. On a lot of newer equipment there will be a white circle and inside that circle will be a number. Many times, I see 30 inside there and that is 30 MPH and that is the max speed of those machines running down the road.”As you approach, remember farm equipment operators may not have a good view of you.“You have many blind spots when it comes to operating a combine, especially on the road,” Ulmet told HAT. “Many of the newer machines do have a camera, but sometimes we forget to clean that camera off as we go to enter the roadway, so we cannot see what is coming up behind us. So, just like on the back of a semi-trailer it says if you cannot see my mirrors, I cannot see you, if you’re following a piece of ag equipment and you cannot see their mirrors, they cannot see you.”Ag equipment does have the right of way on county roads and can take up most or all of the roadway. Ulmet says be aware of your surroundings, especially if you have to get off the road to let oncoming equipment pass.“If you can get your vehicle fully off the road, that would be great because it’s hard to get that large piece of equipment off the road. Also make sure whenever you pull off the edge and you may not be completely off the road, make sure across from you or near you there is not a light pole, a telephone pole, a mailbox, because it’s hard to maneuver that large equipment around even though that motorist has pulled off to the side. We don’t want to get in a situation where that large, heavy piece of equipment gets down into a ditch where we can damage fiber optic lines, telephone lines, any type of water service that may be running through on the edge of the road.”The roads are about to get busy. Keep them safe by watching your speed and surroundings.

Cold Temperatures and Snow Putting a Halt to Planting

first_imgAudio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Cold temperatures and snow are back in the forecast this week, putting a halt on planting operations. Agronomist Carl Joern covers northwest Indiana for Pioneer. He says he hopes farmers halted the planter Monday morning due to the forecast.“Just because the main concern for me, as an agronomist, is I don’t want the seed to imbibe, or take in that very first drink of water, to be a cold one. So, with this snow in the forecast, that would certainly be a cold drink of water for our seeds. So, what that would lead to is a very uneven stand, and it’s those emergence conditions that are most important when we think about the planting operation. We want our planter to go through the field and we want our seed to come up, not necessarily rapidly- that’s not the most important thing, it’s having the uniform emergence, the uniform stand. That’s what is going to give us a great chance when it comes to yield.”Joern gives his advice as to when planters should start to roll again.“I want to wait until the soil temperature has returned to that 50-degree mark for an average. In a perfect world, we’d be waiting until we got to 60 degrees because then we have that rapid emergence with respect to our stand. However, we don’t live in that perfect world and there are a lot of acres that we’re going to need to get across. So, when we do get back in the field, waiting until we’re hitting that 50-degree average, that’s going to give us a great chance to come up with some uniform stands.” Cold Temperatures and Snow Putting a Halt to Planting By Eric Pfeiffer – Apr 19, 2021 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Cold Temperatures and Snow Putting a Halt to Planting SHARE SHARE Previous articleFarm Bureau Encouraging Farmers to Get Involved in Their CommunityNext articleCulver’s Announces Swagriculture Design Contest Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more

Students attend lecture about significance of Latino voters in 2016 election

first_imgFacebook Mark Johnson: the Board of Trustees’ chairman and his vision for TCU TAGSchart – interactiveembedded tweets Twitter Hunter Geisel Linkedin Student organization hosts haunted house for Halloween Farris said that some politicians seem to not understand Latino and Hispanic culture.“They may have gotten the memo that Latino voters are important, but they still haven’t yet understood the cultural nuances of what Latinos are interested in,” Farris said.According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Latino Americans was only at 6 percent compared to other ethnic groups. As of 2010, that number has increased by 10 percent, meaning that almost one-fifth of Americans considered themselves to be Latino or Hispanic.Latino Americans 1980-2010Create pie chartsSo, what does this mean for this year’s election? The Pew Research Center said since 1960, America’s Latino population has increased nearly ninefold.Even though they keep growing in numbers, the Pew Research Center said the number of eligible voters is increasing faster than the number of Latinos actually voting.Despite the trend of Latino voters voting for Democrats and Clinton maintaining a 50-point lead among Latinos, a Pew Research poll showed Latinos began to lose their satisfaction with the country’s direction during President Barack Obama’s second term.Farris said that she encourages everyone, especially millennials, to vote this year, whether or not they are Latino.Ariel Leon, a junior marketing major and member of ULA, said that Farris’ presentation was extremely informative.“[Dr. Farris’ information] is certainly motivating people,” Leon said. “The fact that they don’t want one candidate to win is a big motivation to vote for the greater candidate.” Hunter Geisel ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Hunter Geisel ReddIt printThe United Latino Association hosted a lectured discussion on Tuesday about the roles and issues Latino voters are considering in the 2016 Presidential Election.ULA and Chi Upsilon Sigma, TCU’s Hispanic sorority, had assistant political science professor Dr. Emily Farris teach the attendees about the significance of the Hispanic and Latin American vote in this year’s Presidential Election.Dr. Farris teaches American politics. Her recent research has been on Latino and political behavior, asking questions about political involvement with traditionally marginalized groups in the U.S. The lecture began with a story about the “Great Tamale Incident,” when President Gerald Ford ate a tamale without removing the husk of the traditional Mexican dish. This story began Farris’ general discussion about how some politicians, even to this day, are not aware of Latino culture.“We still see this kind of mistaken outreach to Latinos today,” Farris said before presenting the most recent example of mistaken outreach with Donald Trump’s Cinco De Mayo tweet:Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2016Farris then began to discuss a common practice between both parties: “Hispandering.” According to linguist Ben Zimmer and Duke University Press’ Charles Carson, “Hispandering” is the “political pandering by elected officials or candidates seeking to win over Hispanic votes.”Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has also been accused of “Hispandering” after the launch of her web page “7 Things Hillary Clinton has in common with your ‘abuela.’” This inspired the #NotMyAbuela tweets from people who did not see any similarities with Clinton and mocked her attempts of doing so:center_img Students and others gather in Sid Rich and grab some Latin American food before they sit down.

We put ourselves in position to win the game, but we’re just not getting it done down the stretch.”Kansas senior guard Devonte’ Graham, Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year, scored 28 points, and guard Svi Mykhailuk chipped in 20 as No. 10 Kansas got revenge from its last matchup with TCU, an 85-82 loss in the Big 12 tournament.Kansas guard Devonte’ Graham drives by TCU guard Desmond Bane. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoTCU grabbed their first lead since the first two minutes of the night, 71-70, with 5:43 left to play following a Vladimir Brodziansky hook shot. The senior forward finished with a team-high 20 points.After  Mykhailiuk hit a three-pointer to put Kansas up two, 75-73, with 4:38 to play, Kansas attempted 12 free throws to close out the game, making 11.“Our defense is not where we need it to be, we continue to bail people out and get them to the free throw line and we’ve done it in these two home conference games,” Dixon said. “We have to learn from it.”However, the Horned Frogs had their opportunities. With Kansas on top by a bucket, 79-77, with about two minutes left, Desmond Bane and Alex Robinson both missed 3-pointers, and Jaylen Fisher’s three-pointer with 32 seconds left was blocked by Mitch Lightfoot with TCU down three, 83-80. The Horned Frogs finished 9-for-29 on 3-pointers.TCU also found success at the line missing just one of its 22 attempts, but in Dixon’s mind, they didn’t get to the line enough.“In close games, you have to get more free throws from your opponent,” Dixon said. Even though the Horned Frogs were called for five more fouls than the Jayhawks, 25-20, Dixon said that disadvantage wasn’t on the officials.“We have to adjust and learn from it, I’m sure they’re not picking on us,” Dixon said. “It’s on us. If teams are getting more free throws than us, it’s on us. It’s on me.”An area that kept TCU in the game was its dominance on the glass out-rebounding Kansas by 14, 42-28, including 19 offensive rebounds.“It’s hard to believe and hard to fathom losing when you out-rebound a team by 14, but we did it,” Dixon said. “We have to finish better around the rim when we get those 19 offensive rebounds, but we didn’t get it done and there’s no one else to blame but ourselves.”TCU forward Ahead Hamdy shoots a floater over Kansas forward Mitch Lightfoot. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoTCU dropped to 2-15 against the 13-time defending conference champions with the two wins against Kansas coming in 2013 in Fort Worth and last year in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament.Despite that history, Kansas took the Horned Frogs seriously.“Not because of last year, just because of this year and their record this year and what they’ve done,” Devonte’ Graham said. “They’re the 16th-ranked team in the nation. We don’t have time to be taking no teams seriously.”Up NextNow the Horned Frogs will look to bounce back with a road win or two next week with games in Austin and Norman against Texas and Oklahoma.

TCU to ask faculty about diversity, equity and inclusion efforts in annual reports

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Facebook Facebook Oscar Hernandez Oscar Hernandez was born and raised in Fort Worth, TX. He is a third-year journalism major with a minor in Spanish. Twitter Linkedin Oscar Hernandez printDr. Karen Steele is the associate vice provost and co-chair of the DEI committeeThe Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee added a section in the faculty annual report to encourage a stronger commitment to DEI across all departments. TCU’s new online system, Faculty180, documents every permanent faculty member’s achievements in awards, teaching, and service. The system gives the university access to this data in order to find new ways for the university to support them. In addition, the new DEI section asks faculty to list examples illustrating a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion from teaching, research and/or service to their department, their college, the university and toward their profession.Dr. Karen Steele, associate vice provost and co-chair of the DEI committee, said those who have shown advocacy and commitment through the reports will be rewarded, but faculty who have not shown much commitment to DEI will not lose merit.The DEI section of the report is currently optional, however, Dr. Steele hopes it can be a requirement for faculty in the future.“Some departments here have not devoted much of their time to committing to diversity, equity and inclusion in their profession as often as they would have liked to,” Steele said. “Making this section optional in the report gives them an opportunity to get used to the idea.”Timeka Gordon, director of Inclusiveness & Intercultural Services, said leaving the DEI optional lets faculty reflect on their own values and decide if those values match with that of TCU’s.“If faculty is going to do it, it’s for the greater good and their values are in line with the university,” Gordon said. “If their values are not in line with the university, then they’ll have to ask themselves if this is the place where they want to be.”The DEI committee has done research with other leading universities across the nation, such as the University of Michigan, and used their input to produce this process in order to solicit input from faculty.“It’s about being proactive rather than reactive in response to the changes of higher education in DEI,” Steele said.
