It has been very consistent across many locations and has topped many of the test plots we have harvested.”  He added that P1479 has also been a strong performer this year as well. Facebook Twitter Meacham says the story on soybeans is much better.  There is some SDS but, for the most part, the yields are very good. “We are hearing some very good yields,” he stated. “One of our group 2 varieties, 25T08 is yielding every well. One of our farmers reported an 80 bpa field average on a group 3 variety P35T58.” Yet, the big concern is for the later planted corn and whether it can stand until it is ready for harvest. “We had a lot of Southern Rust blow into Southern Indiana a few weeks ago, and that is really causing issues with stalk integrity,” said Meacham. “We are seeing a lot of this corn prematurely die at a very rapid rate.” He said fields that had been sprayed with a fungicide are holding together a bit better, but other fields are moving backward at a very rapid rate. He is urging growers to assess the stalk quality of their later planted corn fields to determine when to begin harvest. SHARE By Gary Truitt – Sep 19, 2016 Southern Indiana’s early planted corn is being harvested, but the later planted fields may not make it to harvest. About a third of the corn in Southern Indiana was planted in April and is being harvested, but DuPont Pioneer Product agronomist Bill Meacham says yields are a bit disappointing, “From the growers we have talked to, the yields are down about 10% – 15% from last  year. Most of this is due to the fact these fields just had too much water on them during the growing season.” Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleTV Ads urges Congress to act on RVP legislation Gary Truittlast_img read more

But, it’s not necessarily so. That’s why Assemblymember Chris Holden’s legislation would include recognizing the historical significance of President Obama as the first African American President.AB 1912 had its first hearing in Senate Education Committee today and unanimously passed with bipartisan support and a vote of 7 to 0.“This presidency should not be relegated to a footnote in textbooks,” said Assemblymember Holden. “There has been a long history of minimizing the accomplishments of African Americans in this country. We want to make sure that future generations will understand the significance of our nation’s first African-American President by giving him respect and recognition in our school history books.”AB 1912 would encourage the Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) and the State Board of Education (SBE) to develop, and recommend for adoption, curriculum on the significance of the United States electing its first African-American President.California curriculum is based on content standards that are developed by the IQC and approved by the SBE. The history-social science standards were developed in 1998 and were last revised in 2005. A review and update of this framework was almost complete until the state suspended its continuation in 2009 due to the state’s fiscal crises. Therefore, the SBE specifically prohibited the Commission from adopting instructional materials until the 2015-16 school year.
