Dry Conditions Stressing Indiana Corn

Southeast Indiana remains one of the wettest parts of the state, while the Southwest counties are among the driest. Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Dry Conditions Stressing Indiana Corn While the hot dry weather has hurt the corn, it has pushed the wheat crop toward maturity. Goebel says the Indiana wheat harvest will begin very soon, “I think we will see the wheat harvest start by the end of May and first week in June.”  The latest USDA figures show that, “Ninety-three percent of the winter wheat acreage has headed compared with 40 percent last year and 53 percent for the 5-year average. Condition of winter wheat, still standing, declined slightly and is now rated 70 percent good to excellent compared with 59 percent last year at this time.” By Gary Truitt – May 22, 2012 Meanwhile, insect pressure has been heavy especially in soybeans. Goebel told HAT, “There is very heavy pressure in soybeans that have not been treated with seed treatments.”  He also noted that he has seen some armyworms and cereal leaf beetles feeding in some wheat fields. Many Southwest Indiana growers got their corn planted in March and got good early development with timely rains in April, but so far May has been a dry month for this part of the state. Pioneer agronomist Darren Goebel says the corn is showing the stress, “The Princeton – Mt. Vernon, area continues to be quite dry. I have seen corn rolling in the afternoon sun the last couple of days.”  Goebel said this is not as serious a problem now because it just forces the young plants to put down deeper roots, but he worries about the dryness continuing, “We definably need a rain.” SHARE SHARE [audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/dry-SW-wrap.mp3|titles=Dry Conditions Stressing Indiana Corn]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/05/dry-SW-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Goebel says with rapid early growth many herbicide programs will have to be moved up, “Corn is going to grow faster than we expect, and it is very important to get the herbicides applied at the correct time.”   He said a late application can cause damage and reduce yield.

Messi unfairly blamed for Argentina’s woes – Stoichkov

first_img “In South Africa [at the 2010 World Cup under Diego Maradona], they had a great team and where did it end and why? No one asks it. “Later in Brazil, Argentina reached the final and when [other players] have clear opportunities, the fault lies with Messi and Messi loses. “In the Copa America, they have lost two finals on penalties. And again, Messi cannot win, but what do we do with the players who failed and Messi assisted them? They are hiding.” Nevertheless, Stoichkov does not think all is lost for Argentina ahead of Qatar 2022. “Sooner or later the glory of Messi will end,” he added. “Then we must value everything that was done in football. read also:Messi’s numbers which frighten Mallorca “I believe that in 2022 in Qatar this Argentine national team will have the last great opportunity to win the World Cup in its history. “With Lautaro Martinez, with Paulo Dybala, with the last campaigns, I imagine, by Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria. There is a very competitive team.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Dystopian Movie Worlds You’d Never Want To Live InPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right Now9 Actors Who Stay Famous For That One Movie They Did 10 Years Ago10 Amazing Characters We Wish Were Official Disney PrincessesThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually TrueWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?9 Talented Actors Who Are Only Associated With One RoleTop 10 Iconic Personalities On TV Now Barcelona great, Hristo Stoichkov, has revealed that Lionel Messi ‘is always unfairly blamed’ for Argentina’s failures and that his team-mates are guilty of “hiding” on the biggest stages. Despite sweeping the board during a glittering career with Barca, six-time Ballon d’Or winner Messi has never lifted a major honour with Argentina. There were a succession of near misses during the past decade, with Germany beating La Albiceleste after extra time in the final of the 2014 World Cup, before Chile prevailed on penalties in the 2015 Copa America and Copa America Centenario showpieces. The 2020 Copa America was due to start on Friday but has been put back 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic, while the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is likely to be Messi’s final tilt at the big prize. Speaking to Argentinian station Radio Villa Trinidad, Stoichkov said he felt the 32-year-old had shouldered an unfair share of criticism over the failures of his national team. “To see a friend happy, like Leo, and to stop him suffering so much for not being able to win a World Cup, I would change my Golden Boot, which I got at the 1994 World Cup, to see Messi world champion,” said the ex-Barca forward. “Always when he loses, Messi has the blame and they never talk about those who are next to him and fail.
