Planting Delays May Increase Dicamba Use

first_img SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Planting Delays May Increase Dicamba Use Planting Delays May Increase Dicamba Use Planting Delays May Increase Dicamba Usea The long-range forecast continues to look wet which may lead to corn planting delays. If that occurs, some more use of Dicamba products may come into play.  In many parts of Indiana, corn planting will not likely start for several weeks. Eric Miller, with Dupont Pioneer, said, that with many growers already planning to plant more soybeans, switching additional acres to soybeans will not be difficult. “Soybean acres are expected to be up in Indiana because of market conditions but weather conditions may shift even more corn acres to soybeans,” he said. “Certainly with those plans in place I don’t think there will be very much resistance to switching.”HAT meteorologist Ryan Martin says the weekend looks sunny and dry, with highs around 60 on Saturday and into the low 70’s on Sunday. However, he said he is not sure how much of an extended dry down period we will see in Indiana, “The extended forecast shows a possible system moving in near April 11-12 that could leave behind 0.5” rains through the state. Another system on the 15th-16th could leave behind another 0.25-0.5” rain totals in Indiana.”Miller said, if growers make the switch to soybeans, there are some new tools for 2017 that will help timely planting in a weather-shortened, planting window, “New in 2017 will be a zero day plant back for a burndown application using a low volatility dicamba product.”  He said, in the past, growers had to wait 7 to 10 days to plant after during a 2-4D product.  With Dicamba, growers can eliminate the waiting period, “We have some tools we can use if we see this planting window continue to condense.”Listen to the complete agronomy report with Eric Miller on the crops page of our website.

Rising Interest Rates to Help MSR Holders

Fourth quarter earnings of US banks indicate a significant reversal of MSR fair value declines observed during the first nine months of 2016. Moody’s expects significant MSR write-ups for some of the six public non-bank mortgage companies Moody’s rates, reversing the declines in equity they incurred because of the MSR deterioration.”The prolonged low interest rate environment has led to significant declines in MSRs, eroding the capital and profitability of US non-bank mortgage companies that hold MSRs, but relief is on the way,” Gene Berman, Moody’s AVP-Analyst said.Of the six public mortgage companies Moody’s rates, Nationstar Mortgage Holdings, Inc. (B2 stable) and Walter Investment Management Corp. (Caa1 negative) should benefit the most from interest rate increases. Both Nationstar and Walter experienced large material reductions of MSRs at 10 percent and 23 percent of fair value of their MSRs during the first nine months of 2016, owing to the significant decline in interest rates. Assuming the MSR reductions are reversed, the capital levels of Nationstar would both increase by 1.7 percent (TCE to TMA), or a respective increase of 20 percent and 170 percent in percentage terms.

The contribution of ion-cyclotron waves to electron heating and SAR-arc excitation near the storm-time plasmapause

first_imgThe excitation of SAR arcs requires the transfer of energy from the energetic storm-time ring current ions to tonal electrons located just inside the plasmapause. A recent observational study has indicated that Coulomb scattering with energetic O+ can at times provide sufficient electron hearing to maintain the energy dissipated in SAR arcs, but the question of how this energy is transported to the ionosphere remains unresolved. We demonstrate here that ion-cyclotron waves can play an important role in both the energy transfer to plasmaspheric electrons and the subsequent downward heat conduction to SAR arc altitudes. Specifically such waves can experience enhanced path integrated amplification along the steep plasmapause density gradient; the later tends to keep the wave normal angle small on several successive bounces across the equator, thus allowing repeated cyclotron-resonant amplification leading to a total gain of up to 20 e-foldings. Subsequently, when the wave propagation vector becomes highly oblique, absorption occurs during Landau resonance with thermal plasmaspheric electrons. This increases the electron temperature in the direction parallel to the ambient field and leads directly to heat conduction into the ionosphere.last_img read more

Trade snapshot

first_imgBako Western held its annual trade show and hosted the Western Bakery Championships at its base in Cullompton Devon recently. Sixty-one suppliers exhibited on the day, while visitors and their families also enjoyed a hog roast, ice cream and face painting which was laid on for them. The event coincided with Bako Western’s 50th anniversary, with a free prize draw held 50 x £50 Bako Western credits were up for grabs, as well as gifts donated by suppliers.The bakery competitions, supported by bread improvers firm Gb Plange, featured 50 classes, with the newly honoured western region president and Bako Western sales manager Chris Wreford and National Association of Master Bakers president Clive Williams on hand to award the prizes. Winners included Williams of Wool, which took the West Country Specialities Championship title. St Austell-based Martins Bakery won the Open Bread Championship and Open Confectionery Championship, while Andrew Fudge of The Upper Crust Bakery, Taunton, took the top spot in the Best Loaf in Show class.last_img read more
