Pioneer Crop Update 6/15/15

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jun 15, 2015 Home News Feed Pioneer Crop Update 6/15/15 Pioneer Crop Update 6/15/15 Pioneer Crop Update 6/15/15Crop damage reports continue to come in after another weekend of heavy rain in some areas. Ryan Piel, DuPont Pioneer agronomist in NW Indiana, says ponding is a serious problem in many fields, “A lot of these crops that are underwater are just not going to make it, especially if we get some heat.”  He added that the excessive rain we have had and that is forecast for the next two weeks is also taking a lot of nitrogen out of the soil, “This is going to be a real concern over the next few weeks.” In some areas replanting may still be an option. Peal is suggesting mid group 3 varieties, “I think they can still give you good yields but you will have to increase your plant population rate.” Facebook Twitter SHARE He also sees major disease problems coming as a result of the rains, “I think we are going to have a serious problem this year. As soybeans begin to flower, that is going to open up the plant to disease infestation.” He said some parts of the state have seen hail, and that will damage corn leaves which will also open the plant for infection.

EPA Announces Dicamba Label Changes

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News EPA Announces Dicamba Label Changes SHARE By NAFB News Service – Oct 15, 2017 Previous articleBASF to Acquire Bayer’s Crop Science UnitNext articleCommentary: Go Local – Drink Milk NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter The Environmental Protection Agency has announced new restrictions for dicamba-based herbicides, classifying dicamba as a restricted-use product. The EPA said that only certified pesticide applicators, or people under their supervision, will be allowed to spray dicamba. The EPA also is reducing the maximum wind speed and the hours during each day when dicamba may be sprayed and will require farmers to keep records proving they are complying with the product label. Monsanto says the EPA decision will “ensure farmers have even more success” with dicamba-based herbicides, such as Monsanto’s Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System.Thousands of complaints during this growing season, and many last year, of dicamba drifting to neighboring fields not tolerant to the herbicide, prompted the announcement by the EPA.Source: NAFB News Service EPA Announces Dicamba Label Changes Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Kansas City Beats Out Indiana for USDA Relocations

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Kansas City Beats Out Indiana for USDA Relocations Kansas City Beats Out Indiana for USDA Relocations SHARE SHARE USDA announced on Thursday the relocation site for their Economic Research Service and National Institute of Food and Agriculture. It wasn’t the news Indiana was hoping for.Back in early May, USDA announced that Indiana had cracked its top 3 choices for relocation for the ERS and NIFA. The proposal listed multiple sites in Indiana including Purdue University. On Thursday, Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue announced that Kansas City beat out Indiana and North Carolina and will be their new home.In a statement, Perdue said, “The Kansas City Region has proven itself to be hub for all things agriculture and is a booming city in America’s heartland.” He also cited the already significant presence of USDA and federal government employees in the region, including the Kansas City ‘Ag Bank’ Federal Reserve.Governor Eric Holcomb weighed in on the decision saying he’s “extremely proud of Indiana’s efforts to pursue USDA’s headquarter divisions. Our economic development teams worked around the clock with key partners to create a superior proposal and coordinated our efforts with leaders throughout the state. Indiana landing in the USDA’s top three showed the nation that once again Indiana is an ideal destination and thriving community for agriculture.”ERS and NIFA employees recently voted to unionize and join the American Federation of Government Employees in an attempt to halt the move out of the beltway. 547 employees will be impacted by the move.

The Pasadena Police Officers Association have worked hard for over seven years to enhance community and race relations in addition to much more.”The statement also contained comments from key Association officials.“The PPOA has worked collaboratively with the City Staff, Police Department, City leaders and others to do our part: time and time again whether it was to play a role reorganizing the department or continue to train our Police Officers to lead as the best in L.A. County, our State and Country we are working constantly on positive improvements and change,” said Roger Roldan, President of the Pasadena Police Officers Association.“From focusing on de-escalation, looking for alternatives to reduce the use of deadly force, increasing verbal and interpersonal skills, developing or using methods to be able to, at times, use non-lethal techniques or de-escalation when encountering weapons and dangerous calls for service: by employing wrestling and ground techniques – Pasadena Police lead with that and more,” said Roldan, described by the PPOA as “a decorated Sergeant with 23 years of service as a police officer with the Pasadena Police Department and a proud, honorably discharged Marine Corps Veteran (1989 to 1993) of Latino descent.”“We are not Minneapolis and proud of the work we do day in and day out to support our community and all who live, work and visit here” said David Llanes, a decorated 27-year police veteran, 24 years with the Pasadena Police Department, “who is a proud Officer of Asian Pacific Islander (API) descent.”“The Pasadena Police strongly support the community, their elected leaders and the excellent working relationship we have with Chief of Police John Perez and City Manager Steve Mermell” said Sam De Sylva, a decorated Police Sergeant 19 years of career service with the department,  who is a proud Sri Lankan member of the Indian American Community.“We are a highly diverse, motivated, well trained and supported police association and force with overall (sworn and non-sworn) 30.73% females, 43.94% Hispanic, 12.13% African American, 8.36% Asian and more” said De Sylva.“The public needs to know we are imperfect humans and have to make split-second decisions. Sometimes errors occur, but that is different than willful misconduct or actions that are illegal, immoral, violate department policy or go against our training and sworn oath to protect and serve,” said Llanes.“The strong and immense bond peace officers/first-responders have with each other as do other close-quarter working professions goes both ways,” said Maclaurin “Mac” Adesina, a decorated Corporal with 21 years in law enforcement, 15 years with the Pasadena Police Department and proud member of the African-American community. “Our strong desire to do a superlative job on duty — then safely, healthy each day with minimal physical and mental injuries go home to our loving families is also balanced with the fact we just don’t stick up for other peace officers during life-threatening calls for service [with people who knowingly or unknowingly want to harm the public and/or us]: we expect each and every one of our brother and sister Peace Officers to do it better and cleaner than any other profession or department. When one does it wrong or poorly we all look bad. We believe in accountability both ways and expect leaders to lead” further said Adesina.The statement also included a review with commentary of some highlights of “efforts the Chief, City Manager, PPOA and department put forth:• From the Chief’s Advisory Board (made up of many community advocates, ACLU, Churches, and NAACP);• The PPOA feeding the community through local charities and volunteering with Harvest Ministries to deliver hot meals to our seniors, during the pandemic.• Engaging and supporting community leaders.• Releasing critical incident BWC video.• The PPOA Law Enforcement Consultant Peter Mitchell and Performa Labs (a Cie company) launched a pilot program with the PPOA and PPD: to lend real-world expertise in creating a technology-based training tool focused on de-escalation, keeping in mind the safety of the Community and Officers as the highest priorities.• Internal training, de-escalation.• Community engagement beyond most other police agencies• Constantly exceeding state law and most police departments’ training curriculum and expectations.• Using daily de-escalation efforts at a time when a large number of weapons are being taken off the streets. As an example, more guns were taken off the streets during a certain month than days in the month —however, that doesn’t exclude us from being accountable for our actions and our policing culture.• Having internal discussion, ongoing training, and teaching our sworn officers the value of respect through de-escalation so we are achieving much, but that is never enough — officers are taught in the department to intervene to stop bad conduct and to report it. We have more to do, more to accomplish.• The department mindset must be in line with the community so our goals on crime, safety, and the fear of crime, are the same and not opposite. The outcome has been positive with a 50% decline in use of force, increase in implicit bias and communication training, and a 70% drop in the use of a certain type of force techniques. This is not enough but we are continuing our efforts.• Having a BWC video program for three years and we regularly release video as well as use it to train all personnel for review. We provide implicit bias training and closely screen our recruits as well as try and ensure they come from our local neighborhoods.”“During these incredible troubling and dangerous times we wanted to let you the public know what we thought of the tragedy of Mr. Floyd in Minneapolis plus lending our voice to what we have done for the past, current and future improvements in Pasadena,” said Roldan.“We stand strongly by our excellent working relationship and valued city leaders such as the City Manager Steve Mermell, Chief of Police John Perez, some other City Employees and our City Council. We have a world-class City Council with thanks to all of them for their service.”The remarks closed with “special thanks for years working with our leaders: Victor Gordo, Gene Masuda, Steve Madison, Andy Wilson. Also on the Public Safety Committee with thanks to John Kennedy, Tyron Hampton and Terry Tornek. To incoming Councilmember Felicia Williams. Sending thanks to retiring Councilmember Margaret McAustin for her service.”For more information, visit https://pasadenapoa.com/ or visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ThePPOA/ 27 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week center_img Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  More Cool Stuff Business News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Top of the News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Gov. Greg Abbott signs $11.6 billion school finance measure into law

first_img TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Twitter Pinterest Facebook Pinterest Gov. Greg Abbott signs $11.6 billion school finance measure into law Local Newscenter_img WhatsApp WhatsApp Gov. Greg Abbott has signed into law one of lawmakers’ biggest achievements this year, a massive overhaul of Texas’ long-beleaguered school finance system. Abbott put his signature on House Bill 3 during a triumphant ceremony Tuesday at Parmer Lane Elementary School in Austin. The governor was flanked by Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, House Speaker Dennis Bonnen and several lawmakers involved in the effort. “You could not overstate the magnitude of the law that I’m about to sign because this is a monumental moment in public education history in the state of Texas,” Abbott said. The bill’s signing represented a capstone to state leaders’ laser-like focus on reforming school finance and property taxes since the beginning of the 2019 legislative session session. Abbott is set to sign the priority property tax legislation, Senate Bill 2, during a ceremony Wednesday at a burger joint in Austin that says it is struggling to keep up with rising property taxes. The $11.6 billion school finance measure includes about $6.5 billion in new public education spending, plus about $5.1 billion devoted to lowering Texans’ property tax bills. The spending will increase per-student base funding by about 20%. It includes money to give teachers raises, fund free full-day pre-K for eligible 4-year-olds and reduce the amount of money wealthy districts must spend to subsidize poor districts through the state’s recapture program known as “Robin Hood.” It also, controversially, includes money for districts that want to start merit pay programs, giving bonuses of between $3,000 and $12,000 to their higher-rated teachers. And it provides money for high-needs and rural school districts that need help to incentivize teachers to work there. Lawmakers have estimated that the bill will lower tax rates by an average of 8 cents per $100 valuation in 2020 and 13 cents in 2021. That would mean a tax cut of $200 for the owner of a $250,000 home in 2020 and $325 in 2021. Matthew Watkins contributed reporting. Read related Tribune coverage”No fist fights.

She can be reached at [email protected] Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home Sales in California downshifted harshly in December 2018—reflecting a seven-year high for mortgage rates the prior month, more stock market volatility and a continued hold-out by some would-be buyers who are hoping it will pay to wait—according to Andrew LePage, Professional, Research Analyst at CoreLogic. The report titled “California’s Year Over Year Drop in Home Sales Largest in Eight Years”, LePage noted that the 2 percent annual gain in the median sale price in December was the smallest in nearly seven years. This, however, understates the affordability challenge many would-be buyers face. The monthly principal-and-interest mortgage payment on the state’s median-priced home in December 2018 was up 10.7 percent compared to the previous year around the same period. LePage noted that this is because of a nearly 0.7-percentage-point gain in mortgage rates over the prior year.Per CoreLogic’s estimate, approximately 30,697 new and existing houses and condos were sold statewide in December 2018—recording the lowest sales tally for a December in 11 years. CoreLogic public records data shows that December 2018 sales dropped by 8.4 percent from November 2018 and fell 20.2 percent from December 2017. The report found that last December’s 20.2 percent year-over-year sales decline was the steepest for any month since October 2010, when sales fell 23.2 percent. The drop in sales occurred at all price levels, it indicated. The median price paid for all new and existing houses and condos sold statewide in December 2018 was $475,000, declining 3.1 percent from November and recording an upward spike from 2.0 percent from December 2017. In nominal terms, California’s median sale price hit an all-time high of $500,000 in June 2018. “Stock market volatility creates a headwind for high-end activity. Market corrections can spook high-end buyers and leave some with inadequate funds to cover down payment and closings costs,” LePage said. The other highlights for December 2018 revealed that in the six-county Southern California region, 15,781 new and existing houses and condos sold in December—dropping by 20.3 percent year over year. December’s median sale price was $515,000, up 1.1 percent year over year. The nine-county San Francisco Bay Area recorded sales of 5,341 new and existing houses and condos, down 21.6 percent year over year. December’s median sale price was $785,000, up 4.6 percent year over year.CoreLogic data suggest that some of the state’s more affordable counties logged annual gains in total sales or relatively small annual declines in December 2018. However, there were also some relatively affordable counties that experienced annual sales declines more in line with the coastal regions.
