VOTE FRANKENSTEIN NUMBER ONE IN DONEGAL!

Posted on by

first_imgThere is a massive lull in the counting of votes in the Presidential election across the country after a mistake was uncovered at the Wicklow count centre.The mistake has led to a delay in the counting of votes in both Donegal south west and north east.So we here at Donegaldaily.com thought we’d bring you a few of the lighter moments of the Presidential election from Donegal. And the best is probably the man in Gaoth Dobhair who stuck a picture of Frankenstein on his ballot paper with a big number 1 written beside it.Or there was also the case of another voter who wrote nothing but expletives all over their ballot paper.Another wrote love hearts around the names of the candidates but refused to give any of them a vote.Here at the county centre at the Aura Leisure we are waiting….and waiting….and waiting for the second count!

Planter maintenance is worth the effort

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The 2016 growing season will be upon us before we know it. One of the most important parts of the growing season is planting. It’s crucial that your crops get off to a good start and it’s important to make sure that your planter is field-ready when the time comes. Planting seed into the best possible growing conditions is a one of the most important tasks of spring field work. A planter in need of some adjustment can result in varied seed placement, uneven emergence, and ultimately a reduction in yield potential.Check for and replace any parts of your planter that are excessively worn. No-till coulters or disk openers that are worn out will not create the proper seed furrow and may cause poor seed placement. Good seed-to-soil contact is critical in ensuring seed germination and uniform emergence. Emergence that is uneven can cause a loss in yield potential. No-till coulters should be adjusted to operate at the same depth or slightly shallower than disk openers. Seed firmers in good condition will also promote adequate seed-to-soil contact. Check the chains and sprockets on your planter. Make sure chains are operated at the correct tension and replace any sprockets that are worn as well as chains that are stiff, rusty, or excessively worn. Smooth chain operation is a critical component of proper planter operation and seed spacing. Any hesitation or jerk in the system will result in seed spacing that is not uniform.One of the most important aspects of planter maintenance is calibration of your planter. Make the necessary adjustments to your planter to make certain it will plant at the population you desire. Broken or worn parts on planter units should be replaced and units should be periodically calibrated. Along with performing maintenance on planter units make sure seed tubes are clean and are not damaged such that they will prevent even seed spacing. Calibration of your planter and units will reduce skips, doubles, and triples in seed placement. Research has shown that skips, doubles, and triples can cause a reduction in yield potential. In the publication Corn Stand Establishment and Planter Maintenance, Purdue Extension Agronomist Bob Nielsen states “Yield data from our small-plot research and from replicated strip trials indicate that about 2.5 bushels per acre are lost for every inch increase in the standard deviation of the plant-to-plant spacings.”Uniform seed spacing minimizes competition between plants for water and nutrients and promotes efficient use of sunlight.Once you’ve gone through your planter, it’s a good idea to test it out before you head to the field. It is important to evaluate a planter under conditions closely resembling those you will find in the field. Keep in mind a gravel driveway in the barnyard may work but it might not accurately resemble field conditions. Evaluate your planter’s performance at the speed you will be operating in the field. Check your planter for smooth operation, make sure seed spacing and depth is even and accurate. Making a few adjustments to your planter this winter will require some time and effort. This is time well spent and it could really pay off in the upcoming growing season.last_img read more

Fertilizer Applicator Certification Training this winter: Do you need to do it?

Posted on by

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Who needs to be certified?By law and regulations created with the passage of Senate Bill 150 in 2014, anyone in Ohio who applies fertilizer to 50 acres or more, must be certified. This law applies to fertilizer — that is material having an analysis of N-P-K. If its manure, lime or other farm residue you do not need to be certified by this law.If all of your crop goes through an animal before it leaves the farm, you don’t need to be certified, but I think it’s a good idea if you do go to the class and get certified anyway. How do you get certified?The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) will certify applicators in Ohio. If you are a Licensed Pesticide Applicator in Ohio, you attend a two-hour meeting and fill in and sign the form. Ohio State University personnel supply the education for this class, we hope you pay attention and actually learn something.If you are not a Licensed Pesticide applicator, then the process is slightly different. You attend a three-hour class, again from Ohio State University Extension, and complete the form and sign, then you will submit an application and pay a $30 fee to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.If you are a Certified Crop Adviser, you do not have to attend the fertilizer applicator training. The assumption is that you have taken the exams, know about nutrient management and are already acquiring the required five hours of CEUs for NM (nutrient management) — so you have the education. But you will need to show proof of your credentials and apply to ODA for the certification.If you are a CLM — Certified Livestock Manager — same thing. You already do the education, just show proof and submit the application to ODA.Find applicator certification training sessions from OSU Extension at: http://nutrienteducation.osu.edu. Can I supervise a family member or farm employee to make a fertilizer application?Yes. A Certified Fertilizer Applicator can supervise a family member or farm employee without a certificate, if they are under your control and you supply instructions on where, when and how to apply the fertilizer. Will I need to and how will I recertify?Folks are actually thinking ahead on this subject, and yes there will be a re-certification process. Our first goal is to get the approximately 18,000 to 20,000 applicators trained in the two- or the three-hour program. This will need to be completed by September 2017, so the group of folks we trained early will re-certify in 2018 and beyond.In the future, for Licensed Pesticide Applicators the renewal or recertification will be done together in the same year. There will only be one renewal fee and that will be similar to process you now do for your Pesticide License renewal.For the non-pesticide licensed fertilizer applicator, recertification will be three years after their first certification. So, if 2015, 2016 or 2017 then they will renew in 2018, 2019 or 2020, respectively. They will pay a $30 renewal fee. Do I need a nutrient management plan?The quick answer is yes. But it isn’t necessarily required.Included in the SB150 law is a provision that if:You are certified to apply fertilizerYou keep the records of application and weather at applicationAnd you develop and get approved a Voluntary Nutrient Management PlanThen a nutrient management plan can be used as part of an affirmative defense against a private civil action. Meaning that if you are sued by a neighbor for movement of nutrients off-site, being certified, having records and a nutrient management plan can be used in court to defend your actions. (I am not a lawyer, this is not to be construed as legal advice. I am just trying to pass on some education in the matter. As always contact your own lawyer for legal advice.) The deeper question is should you have a plan to manage nutrients?And the answer is definitely yes. One way we think we can manage the nutrient loss problem is to know what nutrients we have available in our soils, to know what risk we have for loss of nutrients and to know how much we should apply to maintain our crops. With a nutrient management plan, we can answer the concerns and better manage nitrogen and phosphorus to reduce nutrient loss from our fields.Please contact your local Soil & Water Conservation District office to learn how to get started on a nutrient management plan. In northwest Ohio, some OSU Extension offices (Defiance, Fulton, Paulding and Wood) also have put plan writers on board. For the do-it-yourselfer, OSU has a Nutrient Management Workbook to develop your own plan, designed originally as a manure management tool this also works for commercial fertilizer. Its available in hard copy at some Extension or SWCD offices and on-line at: http://agcrops.osu.edu/sites/agcrops/files/imce/fertility/NutrientManagementWorkbookRelease3.5.1.xlsm. I want to buy manure from a nearby livestock operation. They say I need to be certified to take the material?Yes, this is now true. As of July 2015, with the passage of Senate Bill 1, no person may apply manure from a concentrated animal feeding facility without a permit from ODA, unless you are a Certified Livestock Manager or you are certified through the Fertilizer Applicator Certification Training that Extension is providing around the state. Again this is the two- or three-hour program we provide. Schedules are available at: http://nutrienteducation.osu.edu. Records – what do I need to keep?Within 24 hours of nutrient application, record: Name of fertilizer certificate holder Name of applicator working under direct supervision of certificate holder (if any) Date of application Location (field ID, farm) Fertilizer analysis (such as 11-52-0) Rate of fertilizer application (lbs/A) and total amount applied Fertilizer application method (surface-applied, incorporated, etc) Soil conditions For surface applications only: is ground frozen or snow covered? Temperature and precipitation during application Weather forecast for day following application.Oh, and keep those records of your nutrient application for three years. And one very good place to get and print off weather records and a forecast is http://weather.gov.OK, I live in northwest Ohio, what does Senate Bill 1 mean to me?For applications of granular fertilizer (defined as nitrogen or phosphorous) or manure in the western Lake Erie basin, a person may not apply:(1) On snow-covered or frozen soil(2) When the top two inches of soil are saturated from precipitation(3) When the local weather forecast prediction for the application area contains greater than a 50% chance of precipitation exceeding: one inch in a 12-hour period for granular fertilizer one-half inch in a 24-hour period for manureunless the fertilizer/nutrient is injected into the ground, incorporated within 24 hours of surface application or applied to a growing crop.This affects all or part of 24 counties in northwest Ohio. And Senate Bill 1, applies to manure application as well as fertilizer. Manure wasn’t necessarily considered in SB 150. Rumors have it that SB 1 may be extended to all of Ohio in the not too distant future. As I write this it is wet, thawed and saturated across all of Ohio, so no fertilizer or manure applications anywhere in the state for a while.last_img read more

That pipeline is going to get built PM dismisses BCs Trans Mountain

Posted on by

first_imgEDMONTON – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline expansion will happen despite British Columbia’s latest attempt to hinder the project.Speaking on Edmonton talk radio station CHED on Thursday, Trudeau said the pipeline, which would take Alberta crude to the West Coast for shipment to Asian markets, is in the national interest and will go ahead.“That pipeline is going to get built,” Trudeau said. “We will stand by our decision. We will ensure that the Kinder Morgan pipeline gets built.”B.C.’s environment minister has said his minority government plans to ban increased shipments of diluted bitumen off the province’s coast until it can determine that shippers are prepared and able to properly clean up a spill.The move has infuriated Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, who has accused B.C. of trying to change the rules after the federal government already gave the project the green light.Trudeau said Canada needs to get Alberta’s oil safely to markets other than the United States. He said the federal government did the research and has spent billions on spill response.“The Kinder Morgan pipeline is not a danger to the B.C. coast,” he said.Trudeau said it’s normal for provinces to have differences of opinion and that’s why there is a federal government.“One of the reasons we have a national government to oversee national interests is to step up for the interests of all Canadians and that’s exactly what I am going to do,” he said, without elaborating on what steps he might take.Notley has threatened trade retaliation with B.C. if the shipping ban goes ahead. She held an emergency cabinet meeting Wednesday to discuss what legal and economic levers Alberta can pull in its spat with its neighbour to the west. She specifically mentioned interprovincial trade in electricity.The B.C. government has said it will establish an independent scientific advisory panel to study the issue.B.C.’s proposal creates more uncertainty for Kinder Morgan’s already-delayed Trans Mountain expansion project that would nearly triple the capacity of its pipeline system to 890,000 barrels a day.Notley is not alone in her fight.Saskatchewan’s incoming premier Scott Moe has also expressed support for the project and criticized the move by B.C., as have opposition party leaders in Saskatchewan and Alberta.(Companies in this story: TSX:KML)last_img read more
