The only thing left for us is to act in coordination, using a common language that will be heard by all relevant authorities – from national legislatures to decision-makers and regulators in the Brussels institutions. ” Russe pointed out. As pointed out by UHPA, in the coming period, and continuing on the educational cycles held so far, the project partners will focus the focus of public discourse on the topics discussed in the Brussels workshop and round table.

July and weed problems

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It’s July and we are all done with herbicide applications. Right?Weeds? I got’em too. So my wife asked me, “If the marestail didn’t die when I sprayed Roundup, can I just up the rate and get them?” No I tell her, even a huge increase in the rate probably won’t kill them. That’s because most of the populations of Marestail in Ohio are now resistant to glyphosate.This picture shows one I sprayed April 24 with glyphosate and 2,4-D. I used 22 ounces of “Max” and 20 ounces of 2,4-D. Most died, but maybe 20% are still out there idling along not dead but not growing all that much. Yesterday morning I hit them with dicamba, as I finally got my corn planted (late) and it’s at about V5. I hope the dicamba will finish them off. If not it’s hoe time. Some ancient historyA 2006 end-of-season soybean weed survey by OSU Extension set the baseline for weed escapes in glyphosate tolerant soybeans in Ohio. This fall evaluation recorded weed appearance shortly before soybean harvest by recording weed presence above the canopy. Approximately 100 fields were observed in each of nine counties at one-mile intervals. Ratings were given for each field, on a one to three scale with a one indicating an occasional weed to a three indicating widespread presence of the weed. In this survey, approximately 10 years into the glyphosate-tolerant soybean era, Giant ragweed was the weed most likely to appear in 42% of fields, then Horseweed (a.k.a. marestail) at 19% and then lambsquarters with 15%.Ohio Extension educators continued fall road surveys in 2008 and after, using the same one to three scale to evaluate weed presence above the soybean canopy at harvest. For simplicity I am reporting the results for the years 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014, representing 14 to 18 counties each year with approximately 80 fields observed per county. This provides 4,669 observations per weed over the four years shown.Marestail achieved the top spot as most likely reported weed across all four years (Table 1); in the 2006 report Giant ragweed held that position.Table 1. Top 10 most numerous weeds identified by year in the Extension fall soybean weed survey.Rank20082010201220141MarestailMarestailMarestailMarestail2Giant RagweedGiant RagweedLambsquartersGiant Ragweed3LambsquartersVolunteer cornGiant RagweedVolunteer corn4Common RagweedCommon RagweedCommon RagweedCommon Ragweed5Giant foxtail /grassy weedsLambsquartersVolunteer cornPigweed species6Volunteer cornGiant foxtail /grassy weedsVelvetleafLambsquarters7VelvetleafPigweed speciesGiant foxtail/grassy weedsGiant foxtail/grassy weeds8Pigweed speciesVelvetleafPigweed speciesVelvetleaf9PokeweedShattercaneWild carrotPokeweed10Hemp dogbaneMorning gloryCockleburShattercane Bottom line, get them before they get you. And for those who plan to rely on the new technology whenever that comes — better get a hoe if you still plan to make poor decisions on managing weeds. Giant ragweedThe other big problem in soybeans and occasionally in corn is giant ragweed. This quick growing weed has developed tolerance and resistance to many of our herbicide programs. It does still respond somewhat to pre-emergent herbicides so hopefully you started there and then for your post application, you will probably need to apply twice.What usually happens is the pre-emergent application slows the growth and reduces the population. The first post takes out many of the lingerers and slows others. The second post application finishes off the bigger plants and escapes from the first post application. This second post application usually involves glyphosate in combination with other products. Please see the Ohio, Indiana and Illinois Weed Control Guide and read pages 183 and 184. Got no Guide? Download the pdf on Mark Loux’s website: https://u.osu.edu/osuweeds/, see under resources on the right.Also there are lots of videos related to marestail and giant ragweed control, along with the pigweed series on Mark’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/OSUWEEDS.  I especially like the time-lapse videos of giant ragweed going down after the herbicide application.last_img read more

Jeev Milkha Singh targets Major ambitions at The Open

Posted on by

first_imgThe last time Jeev Milkha Singh turned up for The Open, he had to leave even before the tournament began in 2009 at Turnberry and two years before that he missed the cut at Carnoustie. So there is some unfinished business at The Open for the Chandigarh golfer.India has a lot of interest in this year’s edition with Anirban Lahiri and Daniel Chopra, the Indo-Swede, also in the field.This is only the second time two Indians are teeing up at The Open. The first time it happened in 2009, Jeev pulled out before the start due to injury, while Gaganjeet Bhullar missed the cut on debut.Jeev comes as almost the last man to get into The Open by winning the Scottish Open to end a four-year title drought.Jeev, whose sole top-10 in a Major has been tied ninth at the PGA Championships in 2008, is hoping to continue his great form in links golf.”I like golf in tough and testing conditions. Wind, cold and even rain makes golf, particularly links Golf a real challenge and I actually love it, even though many find it taxing and even frustrating,” says Jeev.The two-time Asian Tour number one produced a stunning play-off victory in Scotland and now wants to treat his third Open appearance as just another tournament. He did not subject himself to any additional pressure by flying to his London home to relax for a day before coming to Lytham on Monday evening and then playing just six holes on Tuesday.advertisement”The course is looking superb. It is in great shape, just the way an Open course is expected to be. The key is to avoid the bunkers of which there are 206, and the rough is unforgiving. So one has to hit straight, stay in the fairways and not get too ambitious,” said Jeev.”This is just another week for me. I’m not going to treat it differently. I want to treat it like another event. That’s why I’ve just showed up on Tuesday and take it from there.”However, the Indian has yet to pop a bottle of bubbly to celebrate his 14th international victory. “It was great satisfaction winning against a top field and tough conditions. We didn’t celebrate. All plans had to change (as he initially wasn’t in The Open field) and I went back to London, got in at 1.30am after Sunday. We didn’t have a chance to celebrate but we’ll do it next week,” he said. “I take a lot of confidence and want to move back into the top-50 and do well in the Majors.”Jeev is happy not just with his form but the fact that he is injury-free. He won four times in 2006 and four times in 2008, followed by a tough period with injuries.”It was a frustrating period. You just have to hang in there and believe that things will turn around. If you do the right stuff, good things will happen,” he said. “When a player is injury-free, he can work harder. It gives him more confidence. Last few weeks, I was having two or three good rounds. I just needed to put in four good rounds. It happened last week and the win came.”last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgKolkata: Tea Board of India was working on a shrinking government support with total allocation being approximately Rs 250 crore, an official said. “Tea Board is working under the backdrop of shrinking government financial support. The Board also labours under the burden of high administrative costs, with more than Rs 70 crore per year being spent on employees and maintenance of infrastructure, out of a total allocation of approximately Rs 250 crore”, non-executive chairman of the board P K Bezbaruah told PTI. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose Thus, he suggested, one of the focus area of the Board over the next few years would be to reduce administrative costs by upto Rs 10 crore per annum, while many cost cutting initiatives were already on the anvil. “In my opinion, the thrust areas of the Board relating to the tea industry should be on exports through incentivization of exportable variants of tea, like orthodox, organic and speciality teas.” The Board should attempt to get the incentive for production of such variants tripled from the present level. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata Increase domestic consumption through generic promotion of tea should also be considered as a priority area, Bezbaruah, the second time non-executive chairman, said. He said that restructuring of primary markets, particularly the public tea auctions to ensure fair price discovery and prevent some sets of stakeholders from gaming the system to their advantage. “There should also be an effort to ensure transparency of all transactions on both sides, and to eliminate asymmetric information prevailing in todays primary markets”, he said. Bezbaruah said once the primary markets were restructured and strengthened, the Boards ultimate objective would be to ensure that the first sale of all produce that is not exported or sold directly to end consumers, is compulsorily routed through these channels.last_img read more
