Winter wheat management: What are tillers and how do they contribute to yield?

No Comments

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In the coming months as the weather warms, up winter wheat will break dormancy and will begin to green up. After a period of about 2 weeks producers should evaluate their stand in order to make management decisions for their wheat crop. Part of this evaluation includes counting tillers to determine if there is an adequate stand for achieving high yields. According an article in a 2014 C.O.R.N. Newsletter written by Laura Lindsey, Ed Lentz, Pierce Paul, “Yield potential is reduced if tiller numbers fall below 25 per square foot after green up.”So, what is a tiller? And how should they be counted? Tillers are additional stems that develop off of the main shoot of the plant. Primary tillers form in the axils of the first four or more true leaves of the main stem. Secondary tillers may develop from the base of primary tillers if conditions favor tiller development. On the wheat plant pictured above, you can count 6 tillers in addition to the main shoot.Tillers, especially those that develop in the fall, are needed to achieve high yielding wheat. The plant pictured above has the potential to develop 6 to 7 heads. A wheat stand of 1.65 to 1.7 million plants per acre with this amount of tillering (6 to 7 heads), a 100 bu/ac yield is possible. While fall tiller development is promoted by timely planting and applying fall N, determining if stands are adequate and applying N at green up are also critical components in a management program that produces high wheat yields.last_img read more

Startup Funeral: Honoring The Lessons Of Failure [Video]

No Comments

first_img“Startups are often an iterative process,” Newball says. “Even if one dies, the entrepreneur can go on and learn from the process. Life continues, even if the startup doesn’t. That’s the message of Startup Funeral. Not everyone is going to make a Twitter or a Facebook on their first try.”More Funerals ComingThe team behind Startup Funeral is now planning its second event, which will take place early next year. They’re deciding between a marching band and a Viking funeral theme. The hardest part, says Newball – aside from getting a permit for a flaming Norse galleon – is finding startup founders willing to stand onstage and tell an audience what they did wrong.“It takes a brave person to get up in a public forum and say, ‘Hey, I failed.’ But, honestly, we don’t care what you say when you get up to the podium. You can talk about your dog if you want. Or you can talk about the lessons you learned. We won’t judge you one way or another. We’re just happy to have you at the event.”Two people who did not attend the Startup Funeral were Kozmo cofounders Joseph Park and Yong Kang, the guys who blew through $250 million in funding in three short years. Park is now president of BibleGateway.com. Kang went back to his former career, Wall Street investment banking… at Lehman Brothers. Some people never learn. China and America want the AI Prize Title: Who … How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture What Nobody Teaches You About Getting Your Star… Addieu, Get-A-Game, Kozmo.comThe dead startups honored were mobile social-networking company Addieu, mobile game and activity locator Get-a-Game and the late, seldom-lamented but often-derided Kozmo.com, which failed way back in 2001 but to this day is held up as the embodiment of dotcom-era foolhardiness. Three ex-execs spoke and 100 or so in the audience listened and commemorated.“These people never got the opportunity to say goodbye properly to the startup they founded or worked for,” Newball says. “So it felt like a real goodbye for them. It was cathartic on a certain level but it was all done tongue in cheek, so there was a spirit of fun and many people just enjoyed the ridiculousness of it. The event was different things to different people.” After Grieving, Starting OverFor Chris Siragusa, former CTO of Kozmo, it was a chance to talk about his new company, Max Delivery, which is a lot like his old company. Kozmo offered one-hour delivery of snacks, coffee, DVDs, magazines, tubes of toothpaste – pretty much whatever you wanted at a moment’s notice. Max Delivery does the same, with one big difference: Kozmo was free and was killed by its high-cost, low-revenue business model. (In 2000 its revenues were $30 million, delivery costs $35 million and net loss $120 million.) Max Delivery charges a fee and makes a profit. Tags:#events#start#StartUp 101 center_img Failure gets a lot of praise in the tech world. It’s a great learning experience, it’s a vital growth opportunity, etc. But nobody celebrates the actual event. Recently several entrepreneurs in New York City got together to do just that, holding the inaugural Startup Funeral to honor the memory of three dead technology companies.“Every startup has a launch party, but what happens when a startup dies?” asks event co-organizer Leo Newball Jr. “No one is around to commemorate the life of that startup. There are launch parties but never any funerals, so we wanted to have an event that celebrates startups that don’t make it and what was learned from that.”Joining Newball to organize the event were four of his colleagues at New Work City, a coworking space in New York’s Chinatown: Kevin Galligan, Jason Kende, Valerie Lisyansky and Jason Nadaf. They had people dressed as priests, mourners, urns full of hard candy, a bagpiper and lots of alcohol, which is almost always a good idea on occasions like this. (The alcohol, not the bagpiper.) They thought about a casket but caskets are expensive, even to rent. tim devaney and tom stein Related Posts How to Get Started in China and Have Successlast_img read more

State Must Ensure Law Enforcement Agencies Create a Balance in the Use of Force

first_imgStory Highlights Prime Minister Holness also assured that the Jamaica Constabulary Force is taking the necessary steps to address the issue by instituting human rights training as a core component for new recruits. “The use of force policy must underscore the importance of the preservation of innocent lives and it must go further. It must also underscore the professional obligation to train members of the security forces to the highest standards so that they are able to ensure personal and public safety and be able to operate in varied circumstances.” Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the state must guarantee a process to ensure law enforcement agencies use force in a way that creates trust, builds confidence, bridges the gap and makes the public feel there is no need to fear the police. Prime Minister Andrew Holness says the state must guarantee a process to ensure law enforcement agencies use force in a way that creates trust, builds confidence, bridges the gap and makes the public feel there is no need to fear the police.According to Prime Minister Holness, policies must therefore be rooted in the requirement to find a balance between public safety and officer safety.“The use of force policy must underscore the importance of the preservation of innocent lives and it must go further. It must also underscore the professional obligation to train members of the security forces to the highest standards so that they are able to ensure personal and public safety and be able to operate in varied circumstances.”He was speaking on May 31 at the Caribbean Use of Force Conference at the Jamaica Conference Centre.The Conference was organized by INDECOM in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the British High Commission and the United States Embassy.The prime minister noted that the right balance is necessary to ensure that law enforcement officers will never hesitate to execute their duties for the safety of those they have sworn to protect. He added that a system must be in place that guarantees that where improper use of force is used, it will be investigated and addressed accordingly.“When issues occur which result in the abuse of rights or the loss of life there must be a well-respected, well-resourced institution that investigates, that looks into the details of how human rights were abused or the ultimate abuse, how life was lost,” he said.Prime Minister Holness also assured that the Jamaica Constabulary Force is taking the necessary steps to address the issue by instituting human rights training as a core component for new recruits.Additionally, the polygraphing of new recruits is being implemented.Prime Minister Holness concluded that critical to the transformation of the police force is the entrenchment of community policing which is key to building trust among the police, the communities and citizens with whom they come into contact on a daily basis.“Citizens have a duty and a responsibility to observe the law, so in the search for balance it is important that there is a positive statement from this conference reaffirming the need for the citizen to play their part in ensuring the rule of law and public order,” he urged.last_img read more

Yemen Shipments at Hodeidah Port Down 50 Pct

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Around 50 percent of the shipment of food to Yemen has been cut as many ships are refusing to dock at the country’s port of Hodeidah due to the escalation of fighting, UN said. As explained, shipping companies appear to be reluctant to call at Hodeidah as they see the insecurity in the port.“Over the last two weeks, the activities have been cut by half.  If this continues, it will have a drastic and immediate impact, not only on WFP’s availability to distribute food, but also on prices in local markets,” Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the UN Secretary‑General, said.With the port receiving around 70 percent of imports, a decrease in deliveries of wheat and other supplies would affect food stocks in Yemen, Al Jazeera cited a spokesperson of UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) as saying.The multi-year conflict in Yemen is pushing millions of people to the brink of famine. According to WFP’s data, some 17.8 million Yemenis are food insecure, 8.4 million of which severely so.last_img read more

PM puts bagels beer against wine chocolate in Raptors bet with Pelosi

first_imgOTTAWA — Justin Trudeau and U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are betting on the NBA Finals, with the prime minister putting bagels and beer up against wine and chocolate.The Toronto Raptors lead the Golden State Warriors in the best-of-seven championship series 3-1 with a chance to close out the franchise’s first NBA title tonight at home in Toronto.Ahead of the game, Pelosi, who is from San Francisco and an ardent Warriors fan, says she’ll send Ghirardelli chocolate, California wine and a smattering of almonds and walnuts from her home state should Golden State fail to win yet another title.Trudeau says in a statement that the chocolate and a glass of California wine will “pair nicely with the Raptors’ first NBA title.”But maybe Pelosi knows something the prime minister doesn’t by placing the bet with Golden State deep in a hole: Does the speaker have inside intelligence on whether Warriors superstar Kevin Durant is healthy after a leg injury and ready to make his series debut?If the Warriors come back to win their third title in as many years, and fourth in five, Trudeau will have to send smoked Atlantic salmon, Peace by Chocolates chocolates, St-Viateur Bagels, Pansawan dry bison meat, Nanaimo bars, and Ontario craft beer.Nowhere in the bet is the fate of the new North American free-trade agreement that requires Congressional approval, the timeline of which Pelosi dictates as speaker of the House of Representatives.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Contaminated underground water leads to rise in many diseases

No Comments

first_imgNew Delhi: Citizens dwelling in the areas, where use of contaminated underground water is prominent to meet the demand of their basic needs, are on the verge of getting more prone to water pollution related disorders as experts raise the alarm the regarding the city’s underground resource- contaminated by lethal toxin such as arsenic, nitrates and fluorides in some parts of Delhi.Experts pointed that how much the city is overdrawing its groundwater. The over-exploitation was to the extent of 27 percent -that is, for every 100 litres that gets replenished, Delhiites draw out approx 127 litres. It’s based on analysis of groundwater use between 2011 and 2013, the latest year for which data is available. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe arsenic contamination is not widespread, but it may point to unacceptable ground pollution in the city, expert informed. “Arsenic contamination has been found in some parts of the Yamuna flood plains but it’s still a rare occurrence. Though arsenic pollution is considered geogenic (naturally occurring) in other parts of India, some papers have attributed arsenic contamination to fly ash from thermal power plants in Delhi,” said an official from Delhi University. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThe official further said that nitrate pollution in Delhi may be linked to sewage seepage, runoff from landfills into groundwater aquifers in different parts of the city. Fluoride contamination is restricted to the western part of Delhi where there is high groundwater salinity. Some studies have linked fluoride contamination to brick kiln activity while some say it is geogenic,” he said. Experts believe citizen are bound to meet their demand for waters from underground water in some part of national city, consequently, number of diseases such contamination, pneumonia, Rhodesia, gastroenteritis, typhoid, hepatitis and jaundice rises in a proportion in such specific zones. All three pollutants have severe health impacts. While arsenic is carcinogenic, high nitrate levels are known to cause methemoglobinemia, or “blue baby” disease, the official added. The expert further suggested that people residing in these areas should use treated water through UV and RO system, which maintains the magnesium, calcium and zinc type of essential minerals.last_img read more
