He says producers want to do the right thing – but need the right tools and technical assistance to do it. He says farm bill conservation programs help producers implement conservation practices through voluntary, incentive-based methods and play a critical role in protecting air, land and water while supporting the nation’s long-term economic and food security. If the nation’s natural resources aren’t protected and preserved – Schmidt says we won’t have land for producing food, fuel and fiber. Because everyone eats and everyone needs clean air and water – Schmidt says the benefits of a strong Conservation Title provide value to everyone.Schmidt says the Senate Ag Committee’s farm bill includes a strong Conservation Title that streamlines and consolidates programs for increased efficiency and ease-of-use for producers. It also maintains critical funding for all of the conservation purposes needed to implement conservation where it counts.center_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Farmers are unsure about what is going to happen or what they can do.” Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 Name Sym Last Change Facebook Twitter Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 Justin SchneiderThe State of Indiana has joined several other states in last ditch effort to stop the implementation of the EPA’s Waters of the US rule. In less than 60 days, the Waters of the US rule will go into effect. This will give the EPA control over most of the farmland in the US. In an attempt to stop this land grab, a handful of states have filed a lawsuit challenging the legality of the rule. This week, Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller  announced that Indiana would join that lawsuit.

Schneider says the agency and the White House are determined to implement this rule over the objections of farmers, business leaders, Congress, and the states. He said the lawsuit is one way to try and stop implementation. “We are looking for a way to establish balance in water regulations,” he said. “The states have regulations that address many of these issues that the feds now want to take control of.”  Both the Indiana State Department of Agriculture and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management have voiced opposition to the WOTUS rule.last_img read more

National Bank GM says his nationality should not be an issue.

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Share LocalNews National Bank GM says his nationality should not be an issue. by: – May 7, 2011 Tweetcenter_img Share 19 Views   no discussions General Manager of the National Bank of Dominica, Micheal Bird says his nationality should not be an issue when it comes to handling the affairs of the bank.The Jamaican national says what is important is his ability to confidently handle the affairs of the bank.“I personally don’t think so. I think it is more on does the person have the ability to do the job and does the customer base, the shareholders and staff trust that person to do the job? Thats what really drives it. Now I would think that one is firstly from the region because you can appreciate how business is done. Some of the things that we do aren’t necessarily in, they’re slightly different from how things are done in Europe or in North America. So I think having a lot of experience in the region adds a lot to that equation. It would be nice I presume but I as a non-national I have to think what can I bring to the company? The experiences that I have gained working in the region I think adds a little credence to that.”Click here to listen to audio: Mr. Bird also said that will be leading a customer centered approach to management of the bank as customer satisfaction has a major role to play in the success of the bank.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Mourinho confident of title win

Posted on by

first_img “We know his hamstring is not a strong one. He works hard through the week to compensate the weakness he has there but the injury can come. “If he is injured then we have Remy, we have Drogba. we never cry about injured players.” Costa can at least expect to miss Spain’s forthcoming games against Ukraine and Holland, but despite the added rehabilitation time, Mourinho would rather be pressing on with the domestic calendar. “For Diego (the break) is good, because imagine we play three matches in one week, that’s three matches he doesn’t play,” the Portuguese added. “But in this moment we have nine matches to play and I would like to play every week, so it’s not good for us.” Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois gifted Abel Hernandez an equaliser just a minute after Ahmed Elmohamady made it 2-1, side-footing a back pass straight to the City striker. But Tigers boss Steve Bruce believes the Belgian’s brilliance later in the piece was crucial to the outcome. Courtois produced a sensational triple save from Elmohamady, Jake Livermore and Gaston Ramirez in the 64th minute to keep the scores level. “The big turning point in the game was where Courtois pulls off three saves which change the course of the game,” said Bruce, who was nevertheless delighted with his side’s endeavour. “That’s as good as we’ve played for a long, long time, against the best team in England. “We’re obviously disappointed to lose the game because I don’t think we deserved that. “We gave Chelsea a hell of a run for their money and on another day it could have gone our way. “I’m sure we’ve got enough and I’m convinced if we play like that, we’re good enough to stay in this division.” Jose Mourinho remains “pretty confident” his Chelsea side will be crowned Barclays Premier League champions, but Diego Costa is an injury concern for their title run-in. “I’m not pretty sure, I’m pretty confident. I believe in my players, I believe that we can do it but I know it’s difficult,” he said. “I keep thinking the same, the title race should be over. In normal conditions, Chelsea should have eight, 10, 12 points more than we have; title race over. “But football is unpredictable and the reality is we have a six-point lead, one game in hand, which is our best situation for the whole season.” Costa’s short-term involvement is an open question, though. The Spain striker claimed his 20th goal of the season with a wonderful curling effort to put Chelsea 2-0 up inside nine minutes following Eden Hazard’s opener, but Costa hobbled off with a hamstring injury. His exit allowed for Remy’s match-winning arrival, but whether he emerges from the imminent international break in match condition is uncertain. “When a striker is playing, the team needs a goal to win the game and with 15 minutes to go the striker, a guy with a lot of experience of hamstring injuries, says ‘it is over for me’, then it is over for him,” said Mourinho. “He has this problem. He tried to play the Champions League final for Atletico (Madrid, last season) and was injured again and again and again. He has this fragility. The Blues restored their six-point lead over Manchester City with a 3-2 win over spirited Hull on Sunday and retain a game in hand against rock-bottom Leicester. That makes them heavy favourites to lift the trophy and Mourinho was happy to accept the role of front-runners after Loic Remy grabbed a 77th-minute winner at the KC Stadium.

KP Boateng issued Black Stars ultimatum – consider yourself out of Black Stars if…

Posted on by

first_img“There is no such player only cut for qualification and others only for tournament,” Boateng Gyan – a relative of the Schalke forward told Metro FM. He was however ruled not fit enough to play a part in the 2-1 win over the Chipolopolo despite doing a ‘lap of honour’ on the tartan tracks. The 26-year-old made a return to the Ghana national team for the final preliminary group game in the World Cup qualifiers against Zambia in September. He has now been handed an ultimatum to win over confidence of the coach, teammates and the fans in the second leg playoff game against Egypt otherwise consider himself out of the World Cup once Ghana seals qualification. The Schalke star is yet to make a playing return for the Black Stars since renouncing his premature decision to retire from international football. Boateng again failed to show up in the first leg playoff win over Egypt – owing his absence again to injury.center_img Black Stars management committee member Yaw Boateng Gyan says Kevin-Prince Boateng should consider himself out of the World Cup if he refuses to turn up for the game against Egypt. Many Ghanaians however remain doubtful of the ex AC Milan star’s commitment to the Black Stars – with his critics believing he is only reserving himself to play on bigger platforms such as the World Cup. “It is a collective effort and therefore if he [Boateng] keeps turning down invites to play with the other players during the qualification series including this last match then I think that will be it. “We have done our best and yes, he is my relative but the truth of the matter is that if he keeps up with this attitude of not turning up for games then he better count himself out of the World Cup.”last_img read more
