The Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry rescheduled the markup of proposed farm bill legislation for Thursday morning after a Wednesday postponement announcement. The National Corn Growers Association applauded the decision, saying in a statement, “a joint letter sent by the National Corn Growers Association and more than 70 other ag organizations to leadership of the Senate Agriculture Committee Wednesday night urged an end to delay and quick movement on passage of the 2012 farm bill.“It is imperative that Congress complete this vital legislation as soon as possible so farmers know what risk management tools will be available and to avoid potential further reductions in funding for farm programs,” the letter states. “The farm program proposals included in the Commodities and Crop Insurance Titles of the bipartisan mark released last week reflect policies that have been debated in both Congressional Agriculture Committees and among farm organizations since early last fall.”The opening statement for the 2012 Farm Bill Mark-Up from Indiana Senator Richard Lugar follows:Thank you, Madam Chairwoman and Ranking Member Roberts.Before I begin, let me also thank the staff of the Senate Legislative Council and the Congressional Budget Office for their assistance during this hurried process, and I also appreciate the work of Committee staff. However, with major revisions to the commodity title being offered only late last night and no score being made available as of this morning, I share concerns that Members of this Committee have not been given appropriate opportunity to review the new manager’s amendment.As a previous Chairman and Ranking Member of this Committee, I recognize the challenge of writing a Farm Bill that meets the needs of policy reform and fiscal responsibility. As a farmer, I also recognize the need for policy certainty. Farmers have enough challenges in meeting market demands and dealing with weather uncertainty. The Congress should not make their operations even more difficult by allowing political impasses to undercut efficient policy.I commend the Chair and Ranking Member for including in the draft bill several policy proposals that I advocated as part my Rural Economic Farm and Ranch Sustainability and Hunger (REFRESH) Act. These include:A strengthening of the federal crop insurance program;Elimination of direct payments and counter-cyclical payments;A shallow-loss revenue option for producers that assists only in times of need, not every year;A reduction in the size of the Conservation Reserve Program so that productive acres are used to produce; andConsolidation of several working land programs and consolidation of conservation easement programs.I note, however, that while the Committee draft offers savings in the area of $25 billion, much more should be done. My REFRESH Act would save $40 billion, making a substantial contribution to reducing our nation’s unstable fiscal situation. So, while I am pleased to see that the Committee adopted some of my REFRESH provisions, I will work in this Committee markup, on the Senate floor, and with my partner Congressman Marlin Stutzman in the House Agriculture Committee to realize further taxpayer savings.Notably, the Committee mark does little to reduce waste and ensure the fiscal situation of our food and nutrition programs, which account for more than 75 percent of annual farm bill spending. By closing loopholes in the food stamp program that grant eligibility to some who are not truly needy, we could still meet legitimate hunger and nutrition needs and also fulfill our budgetary obligations.The REFRESH Act demonstrates that substantial savings are possible, even as we fund vital programs. In particular, the original Committee draft provided virtually no funding for energy. Energy is an important growth area for rural jobs and the incomes of families, farms, and small businesses. At the same time, rural Americans are rightly proud that they are improving America’s national security situation by reducing the need for foreign oil. I thank Senator Conrad and the bipartisan majority of this Committee that has joined me in funding the energy title.I am proud that American agriculture does not need the Federal government to make its decisions. Our Freedom to Farm Act ended many of those old controls. In a globally competitive marketplace, American agriculture has remained on top because of efficient use of land, machinery, science, and technology. As we debate policies today, we can celebrate the fact that America’s farmers and ranchers will continue to grow even more successful, remaining the world’s leader in feeding growing populations, if our government programs stay out of their way.

SHARE By Andy Eubank – Sep 10, 2014 Wise on SDSSudden Death Syndrome is popping up in Indiana soybean fields and a Purdue specialist says all you can do about it now is confirm SDS exists and then prepare accordingly for next year. Kiersten Wise says the signs from the windshield will be patches of orange and yellow, some dieback and defoliation, and the prevalence of the disease stems from the wet Hoosier spring.“We are seeing a lot of this disease and it all goes back to spring,” she explained. “What we’re seeing is now are the symptoms of something that occurred very early in the growing season. SDS is caused by a soil-borne fungus that affects those roots in the early vegetative stages, so when we’re planting into cool, wet soils, those wet conditions are great conditions for this fungus to take hold and infect soybeans.”At Purdue’s Agronomy Day at the ACRE last week she said it’s important to scout the fields and confirm which ones have SDS.“This is a hard part in the season to know because soybeans are starting to naturally change anyway. You’re going to get those pockets of yellow. You’re going to see some top die-back. So what you want to do is go out to those patches and if you’re seeing this type of symptom go down and split that lower stem open. If you see that grayish, brownish discoloration in the lower stem but the pith remains white or clear, that’s going to be an indication that you have SDS.Wise says the best way to manage SDS is to plant a soybean variety with better resistance.“You gotta know what you have first before you can actually select that variety. So, know what fields have the disease. Sit down with your seed dealer and select a variety that has greater resistance the next time the field goes into soybeans.Wise says none of the available soybean seed treatments have efficacy at controlling the fungus that leads to SDS, but company pipelines might bring forth solutions by 2016. See her SDS demonstration in the HAT video.

By Gary Truitt – Oct 8, 2015 Soybean growers seeking flexible, effective broadleaf weed control have another option to add to their toolboxes. DuPont™ Canopy® Blend herbicide has received approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in time for use during the 2016 crop season.Canopy® Blend combines two modes of action for effective burndown and residual control of difficult weeds before or at soybean planting. Effective in no-till and minimum-till production systems, Canopy® Blend helps manage weeds that would compete with emerging soybean plants for better early stand development.Formulated with proprietary DuPont extrusion/blending technology, Canopy® Blend is a dry, flowable, dispersible granular herbicide that is easy to measure and pour, mix and store. It is available in a new 100-ounce (6.25-pound) jug.Growers and applicators familiar with DuPont™ Canopy® herbicide should review the Canopy® Blend label for application rates and recrop intervals, since application details for the two products are not identical.“The innovative Canopy® Blend formulation meets grower needs for effective control of challenging weeds, including glyphosate-tolerant Palmer pigweed and marestail, while helping to avoid further resistance development,” said James Hay, business director, North America, DuPont Crop Protection. “And the easy-to-use formulation will save growers, retailers and applicators time and trouble as they address multiple crop production needs during the busy spring season. It’s another tool that will help achieve our combined goal of increasing production to feed the growing world population.”This is the latest advancement from DuPont Crop Protection. “Canopy® Blend joins recently introduced DuPont™ Afforia™ and Trivence™ herbicides to give U.S. soybean growers even more options to address changing weed-control needs on their farms,” added Hay. DuPont has been recognized with 19 Agrow Awards, including the Best R&D Pipeline Award in 2013 and 2014.Canopy® Blend herbicide is included in the TruChoice® rewards program, which helps growers partner seed and crop protection products for the greatest agronomic and economic advantage.DuPont (NYSE: DD) has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials and services since 1802. The company believes that by collaborating with customers, governments, NGOs and thought leaders we can help find solutions to such global challenges as providing enough healthy food for people everywhere, decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, and protecting life and the environment.

Organisation News RSF_en Edward Snowden’s revelations about the US security agencies’ electronic surveillance programmes, the repeated cyber-attacks on the sites of the New York Times and Washington Post and the US Department of Justice’s seizure of the Associated Press’ phone records have all confirmed the scale of the threats to which journalists, bloggers and netizens are exposed. The challenge for news providers nowadays is not just circumventing online censorship but also knowing how to protect their communications and their data from being accessed by governments, even in the most developed democracies. Help by sharing this information In November 2012, Reporters Without Borders launched WeFightCensorship.org, a new website for combatting censorship. The site includes a “Digital Survival Kit,” a collection of articles and manuals that explain to news providers how they can circumvent online censorship and ward off online surveillance.Written by experts in digital security, these manuals are accessible to everyone and require no specialist computer knowledge. Available in French, English, Arabic, Persian, Russian, Chinese and (soon) Spanish, this Digital Survival Kit will be constantly updated to keep abreast of technical developments.The contribution of new content to these manuals is open and is based on the practices of the open-source software world. Reporters Without Borders has created a wiki at this address, http://wiki.rsf.org, at which the ongoing contributions are accessible to all.

Diurnal variations in the vertical distribution and swarming behaviour of Euphausia crystallorophias at Deception Island (61 degrees South, 66 degrees West) are described. Swarms were present at all times of the day and night. By day swarms were compact and deep, they were dispersed and neared to the surface by night. Significant net avoidance was noted by day. A twenty-fold discrepancy was found between abundance estimated from net hauls and acoustics. This difference is almost certainly because currently used Target Strength (TS) to size relationships overestimate TS and consequently undersetimate euphausiid biomass.

Each child’s wish list consisted of items that they need like clothing, along with a few toy items.Most of the kids served at Ark are dealing with some kind of crisis, and although the day is about a fun shopping experience, it’s also about building a bond with law enforcement.Angie Richards Cooley said,”Sometimes the interaction that our children have seen primarily has been seeing a police officeror sheriff’s deputy taking mom or dad away. This is a way to repair that, and to really build that trust and a relationship.”Meijer also provided the kids with a free lunch.Britney TaylorWeb ProducerMore Posts – WebsiteFollow Me:
