Casteel, Camberato and Mansfield’s full report, including tables and photos, is available for free download at https://www.agry.purdue.edu/ext/soilfertility/news/carryovernitrogenwheat.pdf Virginia Tech University and the University of Kentucky provide guidelines to growers for sampling wheat at growth stage Feekes 5 and adjusting the fertilization rate based on the tissue nitrogen concentration.”Sampling wheat at the proper growth stage is important because the tissue concentration changes rapidly with growth during this time period,” Casteel said. “The only guidelines for adjusting nitrogen fertilization are at Feekes 5, which is an ideal time to fertilize from crop production and nitrogen efficiency standpoints. Unfortunately, this timing is risky in wet soils and is later than when many fertilize wheat.” Facebook Twitter Soil sampling and lab analysis are the most accurate way to estimate the amount of nitrogen left behind. But because deep soil sampling is labor-intensive, the more common approach to adjusting nitrogen fertilizer rates has been to use young wheat plants as an indicator of soil nitrogen supply instead of sampling soils directly, Casteel said. Facebook Twitter In a more normal year, Indiana wheat growers don’t have to consider leftover nitrogen because winter and spring precipitation removes it from the crop root zone, Camberato said. “Most of the nitrogen remaining in the soil at the end of the season is a highly leachable form of nitrate,” he said. “Nitrate is repelled by soil particles, so it moves downward with water. Indiana typically receives 18 to 24 inches of rainfall between October and April, which is sufficient to remove most of the nitrate from the root zone of the state’s soils.” This year, parts of Indiana have received less rainfall than that – especially in the northeastern and northwestern parts of the state, where rain has ranged from 10 to 20 inches. Nitrogen carryover potential is much higher in these regions than in southern Indiana. Post-Drought Nitrogen Carryover Could Benefit Wheat Growers By Gary Truitt – Mar 4, 2013 Home News Feed Post-Drought Nitrogen Carryover Could Benefit Wheat Growers Soil nitrogen left behind by Indiana’s drought-stricken 2012 corn crop could mean that the state’s wheat growers might be able to apply less fertilizer this spring, a group of Purdue Extension agronomists say. Corn plants stressed by extreme heat and too little water yielded less grain and left more nitrogen in soils than in normal years. Wheat has potential to scavenge the nutrient more so than a subsequent corn crop. In their new publication, Carryover Nitrogen – Potential Impact on Wheat Fertilization, Shaun Casteel, Jim Camberato and Chuck Mansfield discuss the topic and why it’s good news for wheat growers who might not have to buy as much fertilizer. “Spring fertilization rates necessary to optimize yield may be lower than what is needed following normal corn crops,” Casteel said. “Wheat planted in the fall has an advantage in that it will accumulate some nitrogen prior to dormancy. Wheat’s primary advantage is the established root system that can take up nitrogen in the early spring before corn is even planted.” SHARE SHARE Previous articleSeed Consultant 3/4/2013 Evening Comment with Gary WilhemyNext articleAmy Cornell named ISDA’s Director of Policy and Regulatory Affairs Gary Truitt
ABC News/KABC-TVBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — A 13-year-old girl has died after a violent carjacking took place while she and her three siblings waited in her family’s car as their parents went into a restaurant to pick up food.The incident occurred at approximately 2 p.m. Sunday in Pico Rivera, California, when the family parked their van next to a restaurant located near the intersection of Whittier Boulevard and Lindsey Avenue and the parents ran into the establishment to pick up food for the family, leaving the four children, ages 18, 13, 11 and 8, waiting inside the vehicle with the air conditioning running, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.It was then that the suspect, 26-year-old Jose Aguilar, suddenly jumped into the vehicle and ordered all four of the kids to jump out.“Once the suspect got into the car, the 18-year-old girl fought with the suspect briefly and then she came out of the van,” said Lt. Barry Hall of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as he addressed the media after the incident. “The doors were open, because he accelerated both doors came open on the van. She got pushed out of the van or jumped out of the van as did her 11-year-old brother.”The 18-year-old girl and her 11-year-old brother both sustained minor injuries during the altercation with Aguilar.Aguilar then took off down Whittier Avenue at a high rate of speed of up to 60 mph, according to ABC News’ Los Angeles station KABC-TV, with the 13-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy still in the vehicle.“The vehicle continued westbound and that is when the 8-year-old boy and the 13-year-old girl came out of the vehicle,” Lt. Hall continued. “Both of them sustained major injuries and the 13-year-old girl died at the scene.”It is unclear whether the two kids were pushed out of the vehicle or decided to jump themselves.Authorities say the 13-year-old girl struck a stationary object and died at the scene while her 8-year-old brother was taken to hospital with major injuries. His current condition has not been disclosed.Aguilar continued driving for several miles after the last two children were out of the car before slamming into another vehicle and attempting to carjack another a car near the Whitter Narrow Recreation Center with a father, mother and child inside.According to reports, a fight then ensued between the driver of that car and Aguilar when local street vendors who were selling fruit saw what was happening and came to the rescue by ultimately helping to detain the suspect until deputies arrived to arrest him.“The dad who was trying to buy the fruit jumps back into the car, chokes the guy out and that is when the fruit guys came up and helped him, pulled him out of the car and I believe they actually tied him up and detained him for the deputies,” Lt. Hall said as he addressed the media.Aguilar was then arrested and taken into custody. According to KABC, investigators say that Aguilar had recently been arrested and released on zero bail for felony possession of a dirk/dagger and a vandalism charge and was also on probation for a list of other charges.The tragic incident has left the community in shock and the family mourning, searching for answers as one of their children is now gone and another remains in the hospital with major injuries.Said witness Michelle Vaca: “When I found out it was a child, it touched my heart because I am a mother myself and I can just imagine what her mother and father are going through knowing that they lost their child.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Press Association Substitute Nikica Jelavic had three good chances for Everton, but Moyes’ men were beaten in his 518th and last game in charge before his move to Old Trafford. The opener came when Oscar surged through the middle and found Demba Ba, whose shot from the angle on the right was spilled by Tim Howard and Mata followed up for his 20th of the season. Naismith went close before equalising when he capitalised on a mistake from David Luiz. Luiz failed to control a regulation ball and Naismith nipped in, received a return pass from Victor Anichebe and clipped in over the advancing Petr Cech. Darron Gibson went close from a shot which deflected off Nathan Ake, hit the post, Cech’s head, then the post again. Gary Cahill saw a shot saved by Howard and Branislav Ivanovic fired over. Sylvain Distin deflected a Ba shot out for a corner after Phil Jagielka had gifted the striker the ball. Jelavic, on for Naismith, headed straight at Cech before fluffing a glorious chance when Leighton Baines crossed to the far post. Chelsea snatched the winner when Oscar’s cross from the right was met with a cushioned header by substitute Victor Moses and Torres was clinical, his half-volley beating Howard at his near post. Cech made a stunning stop at point-blank range when the striker met a Baines cross as Chelsea held on for victory. Twelve months to the day since Chelsea’s Champions League win in Munich, Juan Mata put the hosts in front, only for Steven Naismith to swiftly equalise for Manchester United-bound Moyes’ visitors. The Europa League winners were on top in the second half and sealed victory through £50million striker Torres’ first league goal since December 23 as Rafael Benitez’s seven-month spell ended with a 28th win from 48 matches. Fernando Torres scored his first Barclays Premier League goal of 2013 as Chelsea sealed third place with a 2-1 victory which ensured David Moyes’ 11-year reign as Everton manager ended in defeat.
The Republic of Ireland midfielder, who joined the Toffees from Wigan for an initial £13million last week, had a trial with his new club’s arch-rivals at the age of 16. But at the time McCarthy had just broken into the first team at Hamilton and he decided his career would be better served by continuing with them, rather than playing in the Reds’ reserves. Scottish-born McCarthy, now 22, eventually moved south of the border when Wigan moved for him in 2009. And such was his progress under Roberto Martinez at the DW Stadium that the Spaniard has now ensured he has followed him to Goodison Park. That means he will now be playing a stone’s throw from Anfield – a possible reminder of what might have been – but McCarthy has never regretted his decision. He said: “There was talk of it (Liverpool). Obviously I went down for a week’s trial. “It wasn’t to be, I was too young at the time. I didn’t want to move away from home. “To be honest, the way things have worked out, I am happy.” Everton’s deal for McCarthy was completed close to the deadline on what proved a frantic final day of summer transfer activity. The signings of McCarthy, Gareth Barry and Romelu Lukaku were all announced in the final moments of trading as Marouane Fellaini and Victor Anichebe exited. Press Association James McCarthy believes his move to Everton further vindicates his decision to turn down Liverpool as a teenager. McCarthy, speaking as he was officially unveiled as an Everton player at a press conference, was asked about his feelings on that day. He said: “It was very hectic. At times it goes through your head that it might not happen. “As time went on, it got to 10.30 at night and I was thinking to myself, ‘Is is going to happen or not?’ “Thankfully it did and I’m just delighted to be at such a great club. “It is a great place to be. Since I heard they were interested I wanted to come here.” McCarthy had no time to familiarise himself with his new workplace after the deal was completed before reporting for international duty with Ireland. Now he is back with the club and is keen to work hard to justify their outlay. He said: “It is a price tag and one I need to deal with. “I am looking forward to trying to prove why I am here. “It is not going to be easy, we have got a lot of competition for places. “I am going to give it my best shot and hopefully I can do well.” One of McCarthy’s principal reasons for opting for Everton was the opportunity to work with Martinez, under whom he established himself as a top-flight player and won the FA Cup last season. McCarthy said: “He is a very good manager. “You can see he likes to play football. It is always pleasing on the eye for people watching. “It is great to be here with him and hopefully I can stamp my authority on the team and get as many starts under my belt as possible. “But I have got real competition at the club. There are a lot of big names here. If I need to bide my time, I will bide my time.”
Manchester City’s defensive woes deepened ahead of their opening Champions League clash away to Shakhtar Donetsk as centre back John Stones was ruled out with a muscle injury.City manager Pep Guardiola broke the news during his pre-match news conference.“He made a pass and was injured,” Guardiola told reporters, confirming the injury occurred during Tuesday’s training session. “No problems, he (Fernandinho) can deal with it and he will do well because my players are well. “We will create something, it is what it is.”Fresh from a shock 3-2 Premier League defeat by promoted Norwich City and with French centre back Aymeric Laporte out injured until January or February, the news that Stones could now miss five weeks gives Guardiola a headache.“Football is not how you handle good situations, but how you handle bad ones,” he said. “We won seven titles and no one gave us anything, we did it ourselves.“I am ready for the challenge. I like this situation.”Despite City beating Shakhtar 3-0 away last season, the Ukrainians are dangerous opponents, especially on their own turf, and Guardiola will likely have a patched-up defence with Nicolas Otamendi their only available established centre back.“Big challenge. So for me as a manager it’s an incredible challenge, just one central defender in Nico,” Guardiola said.“But I believe a lot, people don’t know the spirit and resolve to solve this problem. It’s happened, but what we are not going to do is complain.”Fernandinho, naturally a defensive midfielder, is expected to partner Otamendi in the heart of City’s defence.Midfielder Phil Foden is also out of Wednesday’s match through illness. “He has a virus problem with the stomach. He will miss this game and maybe the next,” Guardiola said.City became the first English team to beat Shakhtar away last season, but Guardiola is wary of the Ukrainians, having lost to them the previous season, also in the Champions League.“They are incredible on the counter attack and playing short,” he said. “Hopefully we can play in good rhythm. The first game in Champions League is important.“Every time I play against Shakhtar the way they play is very similar. It’s really tough, especially the first one, that team was incredibly good. Always it is tough.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
