Handling cover crops in a challenging spring

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Nathan Long and Jim Case, who farm in Delaware County, have learned to expect great things when planting into a cover crop.“Our soil structure and drainage have definitely improved. We see a lot more water percolation through the ground. We were doing this in the 50s and 60s when I was growing up and we had livestock and a nice rotation,” Case said. “We have gotten away from that and the soil structure has suffered. The microbial activity with the cover crops really helps and we are getting a better more uniform seedbed. Then we have a mat of organic matter that holds moisture through the summer.”In the spring, for planting, they typically kill off the cover crop if it is not already dead.“If you’re going to plant into it green I would expect the cover crop to pull up the excess moisture we’ve had this spring. The top six inches of tilth from the roots will let the planter run easier and it will close up easier. You don’t have to work the ground to a powder to plant,” Long said. “All of our stuff has been killed this spring, and we have been no-tilling for awhile. The soil structure is there, though, so it drains off well. With a cover crop, the organic matter forms a sponge and when you drive over it, it will come right back.”Long and Case typically use cereal rye on corn stalks going to soybeans and annual rye on the soybean stalks going into corn for the improved carbon to nitrogen ratio. “We have tried other mixes too. We used radishes, clover, and cereal rye last year and it formed a nice thick mat all winter and now there is less residue then some tilled fields,” Long said. “We have not really had any disasters. Timing is everything.”This year, though, the persistent rains and cool temperatures led to some tough cover crop situations in different parts of the state. In some of the worst situations, the cover crops (most notably cereal rye and annual ryegrass) got too tall because field conditions did not allow a timely spray application. Planting into tall living cover crops is an option for soybeans but is less appealing for planting corn.In some fields, the cover crop was sprayed and killed prior to planting corn, but then it rained and the cool temperatures left an un-plantable muddy mess with the dead cover crop holding in the moisture rather than helping dry the field. Glenn Harsh, who also farms in Delaware County, found himself in a similar situation this spring.“If it gets tall and you kill it, you can have a problem if it gets wet. I crossed my fingers and in my situation the cover crop hadn’t completely died and took up enough water to let me get in,” Harsh said. “The first day I went to plant, it was still wet, but I got away with planting because the roots are so fibrous and the slot closes easier.”Other dead cover crop/wet field situations have been addressed with some shallow vertical tillage (for example a Great Plains Turbo Max). One such field was tilled after waiting to dry when conditions finally warmed up. After the tillage pass, the field sat for a day before planting the corn.There are a myriad of ways to manage cover crops, but two keys to success with these challenging situations, though, seem to be cooperative weather and the patience to wait for it.last_img read more

Brother Thirdy Ravena, who already saw the big game coming.“I was kind of expecting him to do Kiefer things even in the PBA,” he said. Thirdy, coming off a championship with Ateneo in the UAAP, watched Kiefer’s PBA debut with dad Bong and mom Mozzy.“Usually, the transition is tough especially from college. Usually, when you’re a rookie, you feel nervous,” added Thirdy, who affectionately calls Kiefer ‘manong’ as a sign of respect. “But he was aggressive and he’s just playing his game. Now that I’ve seen him do that on a professional stage, that just speaks about how his game is and how good he is.” 8th Top Leaders Forum assessed the progress of public-private efforts in building climate and disaster resilient communities BI on alert for illegally deployed OFWs to Iraq Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Cayetano: 4 social media groups behind SEA Games ‘sabotage’ LATEST STORIES ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

Mourinho berates ‘childish’ Man United after dropping points

first_imgThe warning signs were there in the 27th minute when United was foiled by the one thing teams know to prepare for against Leicester — a counterattack.Jamie Vardy played a part in starting the intelligent move before completing it with the opener.Deep inside his own half, Vardy passed to Demarai Gray who launched the ball high over the United defense. Riyad Mahrez sprinted onto the ball, held off defender Chris Smalling and then stalled to wait for the overlapping Vardy to arrive in the penalty area. The striker was well placed to receive the pass from Mahrez and net his 50th Premier League goal.Juan Mata did spearhead a recovery by United, slotting in the equalizer five minutes before halftime after being teed up by Jesse Lingard.Although Mata netted again from a free kick on the hour, the visitors should already have been in front. Anthony Martial squandered a chance when he blazed over, and a later miss was more glaring from Lingard.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. LATEST STORIES After being released by Romelu Lukaku, Lingard rounded goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and managed to hit the post despite having an open goal to put United 3-1 up.“We had childish decisions in front of goal and bad decisions as it was not just about the goals we missed, or dribbling or hitting the post,” Mourinho said. “It was not just about missing chances with an open goal, it was also about decisions. Easy decisions to make in easy transitions to counterattack.”United couldn’t even exploit Leicester going a man down in the 73rd minute when substitute Daniel Amartey was booked for the second time in four minutes.And just as he was for the opener, Smalling was at fault again when Leicester stunned United with virtually the last kick of the game.Maguire got ahead of opposing defender Smalling at the far post to latch onto Marc Albrighton’s cross and stretch out his right leg to put the ball into the net.“In the end no maturity because Smalling was in trouble,” Mourinho said. “They put in the last minute Maguire (up front) as an extra man, the players on the pitch cannot react to that and analyze the game and make a quick adjustment.”It was a further blow for Mourinho after United was eliminated from the League Cup on Wednesday by second-tier Bristol City.“I cannot stop the game and give a team talk,” Mourinho said. “For the last two minutes the players had to immediately adapt, to read the game, which they didn’t.” Harry Maguire’s strike for Leicester in the fourth minute of stoppage time left second-place United 13 points behind Manchester City in the English Premier League after the rampant leader beat Bournemouth 4-0 earlier Saturday.The title race already appears over with half the season to play, and Mourinho is not happy with how a 2-1 lead was thrown away after Juan Mata scored twice.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over Thunder“I think childish in their box and childish in our box … mistakes plus mistakes,” Mourinho said at King Power Stadium.“Some players they have childish decisions and time helps them to have maturity and to decide better but some other players stay with childish decisions until the end of their career.” Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC BI on alert for illegally deployed OFWs to Iraq Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:15SC chief Peralta wants US-Marshall patterned security for PH judges01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Read Next Cayetano: 4 social media groups behind SEA Games ‘sabotage’ Manchester United’s Juan Mata celebrates scoring his side’s first goal of the game during their English Premier League soccer match against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, Leicester, England, Saturday, Dec. 23, 2017.
