Hope for Soybeans but Timing Now Critical

But Tony White, Monsanto Products Development Manager in soybeans says it’s tough to predict just how quickly a soybean plant can rebound from a good rain.“It depends on the amount of rain that we received and the temperatures throughout that period of time. This upcoming week is supposed to be hot but then it’s supposed to cool off and that’s going to be really important for the soybean crop that it starts reducing some of that heat and moisture stress and it can continue to put on flowers. If you look at the crop stage at this point in time it depends on where you’re at but we’re at the late R3 stages, meaning that we’re starting to set pods and the pods are continuing to grow.”White says that’s a good place to be because the potential to put on pods still exists. But with the bean crop anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks ahead of schedule, the middle to third week of this month is when the window starts to shut.“If we can get some good rains and cooler temperatures between now and then we’re really going to set ourselves up for a little better soybean crop. It won’t be perfect by any means, but much better than what we had anticipated with the challenging weather that we’ve had.”What farmers really need is help from Mother Nature, but it can also be beneficial to scout for diseases and insects even though those have been held to a minimum this year.“There have been some spider mites around that farmers are spraying for and I think that’s really important to stay on top of. But scouting for diseases and thinking about yield opportunity with some of the plant health products that can be sprayed are things to consider as we move forward, especially if we can get some of these additional rains.”White says we are just past the point of herbicide applications but he encourages producers to consider soil applied residual herbicides as part of the 2013 program, even though those products didn’t get good activation in the 2012 drought.[audio:|titles=Tony White on 2012 soybean possibilities]Hear the full interview:[audio:|titles=Tony White Monsanto]Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS By Andy Eubank – Aug 8, 2012 last_img read more

Garda Supt Michael Finan said here has been an unavoidable delay in completing the criminal investigation file, which will be submitted to the DPP “within weeks” but it would be a substantial file and further time was needed for consideration of it by the State authorities.The 56 year old was murdered in his remote home at Classey, Cloghercor, near Glenties, on April 4th 2006.Mr Shiels, for the family, said: “The longer this goes on the more the issues of suspicion will fester.”The coroner said he understood the frustration of the family but he further adjourned the proceedings until November 8th.

State of Punjab is supporting a terrorist.” Solicitor General of India, Tushar Mehta appearing on behalf of State of Uttar Pradesh, submitted before the Supreme Court today.The Supreme Court Bench comprising of Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice R. Subhash Reddy was hearing a plea filed by the State of U.P. seeking transfer of Mukhtar Ansari currently lodged in the Ropar Jail, Punjab to Ghazipur Jail in the State of UP. The State of Uttar Pradesh approached the Apex Court seeking Ansari’s transfer alleging that many serious offences are presently pending in the State against Ansari and his transfer is crucial owing to his appearance in those cases. However, the Superintendent of Ropar Jail has refused to hand over Ansari on medical grounds. The Court had last month granted two weeks time to the State of Punjab and Ropar Jail authorities for filing counter affidavit in the matter. According to the SGI, it was submitted that: “State says that Ansari is suffering from depression. And he says he belongs to a family of freedom fighter. He is a gangster. He is arrested and does not file bail application because he is happy to be in Jail of Punjab.” SGI pressed upon the contention that Mukhtar Ansari, being a gangster, had more than 20 offences registered against him in the State of U.P., however, he was remanded to be in the State of Punjab as he enjoyed the “protection” being given by the State in Ropar Jail. “He is vociferously defended by the State of Punjab.” Added the SGI. At this juncture, Mukul Rohatgi appearing for the State of Punjab intervened and submitted that he has also filed for the transfer of cases from the State of U.P. to Punjab and that it must be listed with the present matter in hand. To this, SGI objected and submitted that since those cases were different, the same should not be listed along the petition. “This is only a delay tactic. This is a question of serious significance. One gangster manages to get an FIR filed, doesn’t file a bail and he enjoys being in Jail in Punjab. These are all counterblast petitions.” SGI submitted. In view of this, it was submitted by Mukul Rohatgi and Dushyant Dave, also appearing for the State of Punjab, that hearings via video conferences were taking place in the matter. However, SGI submitted that the State of Punjab cannot choose the forum in such a manner. “You cannot sit in a five star accommodation and appear for trials in the State of U.P.” SGI added. After hearing the counsel appearing for both the parties, the bench ordered to hear the matter on 24th February 2021 at length.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_imgDismissalOn 18 Jan 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. With the rise of the compensatory limit from £12,000 to £50,000 fordismissals on or after 25 October 1999, potential liability for unfairdismissal has become a serious business issue for many employers. So it isvital that all employers are familiar with the concept of what constitutes afair dismissal, and how to go about it.To defend a claim of unfair dismissal, an employer will need to show twothings – that it had a fair reason for the dismissal, and that it adopted afair procedure and acted reasonably in treating the fair reason as a sufficientreason for dismissing the employee. There is, of course, a huge amount of case law on what these statutoryprovisions mean in particular circumstances. However, it is worthwhile bearingin mind the above two-stage defence is effectively required to resist eachunfair dismissal claim and it is for the employer to demonstrate on the balanceof probabilities that it has met these requirements.Fair reasonsThe fair reasons adopted in the statute are conduct, capability, redundancy,contravening a statutory duty and “some other substantial reason of a kindsuch as to justify the dismissal of an employee holding the position which theemployee held”. This fifth, residual category – SOSR – will increasinglybecome a battleground for more unfair dismissal cases as unfair dismissal litigationincreases due to the size of the potential awards.SOSRAll kinds of reasons have been used to justify a dismissal for SOSR. Themost typical scenarios include business restructurings not involvingredundancies, third party pressure to dismiss an employee and unacceptablebehaviour reflecting upon the employer. In each case, there is a duty on theemployer to show that dismissal was effectively the last resort, havingconsulted thoroughly with all the relevant individuals, and having conducted areasonable investigation into the situation and all alternative solutions. One obvious alternative solution will usually be redeployment within theorganisation – if it is possible, the dismissal may not be fair. Perhaps morethan any other four fair reasons, the SOSR category blurs the distinctionbetween the two stages of the defence above. Some tribunals have distinctlysignalled that if sufficient thought has not been given to alternativesolutions for the difficulty and/or an insufficient investigation and consultationprocess has been undertaken, this might impact on the very substance of thereason upon which the employer wishes to rely.TacticsAlways be aware that if you are faced with a situation requiring a dismissalfor practical or commercial reasons, it might be possible (sometimes as a lastresort!) to carry out the dismissal fairly using the SOSR process. At the veryleast adopting this stance in the absence of any other can assist the employerin negotiations over settlement, giving the employer at least some respectableargument that the dismissal was not actually unfair, and at best it can avoidliability altogether for the employer provided that all the elements forrelying on SOSR are made out.By Russell Brimelow, Head of the employment group Boodle Hadfieldlast_img read more

Mountain Mama: How Sarah Ruhlen is Redefining Kayaking Videos

first_imgAt last year’ Tallulah Fest Sarah Ruhlen was standing in a crowd, excited to see the kayaking videos. All the movies featured guys running big waterfalls, doing amazing tricks, and paddling big water. They were fantastic, but I didn’t feel part of the narrative. None of the videos featured women. They didn’t capture the experience of regular paddlers.So she decided to make an all-women edit for this year’s Tallulah Fest.Sarah majors in biology at Western Carolina University and paddles whenever she can. During the summer she teaches canoeing and kayaking at NOC, and she’s also an avid whitewater photographer.Sarah sent out a group message to all the women paddlers she knew and shared her idea, asking for footage that she could use to create a video that showed what being part of the community is like. Over thirty people responded.Sarah hadn’t done much with editing, but was excited to get so much cool video footage from rivers across the Southeast including the Tallulah, Chatooga, Rocky Broad, Horsepasture, Green, and Cheoah. Sarah had a hard time trying to find music. “I wanted something that didn’t misrepresent the story. It isn’t the right platform for something relaxed, the crowd wouldn’t pay attention,” Sarah said. “I found a song I really liked, something more playful and light, sort of happier.”She hopes that her edit helps create a more expansive view of what it means to paddle whitewater.  Sarah said, “Yes it’s a women’s edit. The point isn’t to exclude men – it’s to be inclusive and push away cliques that often happen when people run harder whitewater. I want to help create a more expansive community. For people to go to festivals and see themselves and the rivers they know when they watch the videos.” The feedback Sarah’s received about her edit has been really good.  Some have told her that the video is something that they want to show their kids or their mom, that they’ll watch it again. A lot of guys have rallied around the video and cheer on all the women crushing it. Sarah’s video was shown at the Tallulah Fest this past weekend, which was still held despite the cancellation of the scheduled release. She’s thinking about making a longer edit for the Banff Film Festival. “Perhaps with a different story, but the same vibe. I have so much footage from so many people that might not be seen on another platform,” Sarah said.last_img read more
