03 Resistant vegetables

first_imgAt times, this disease has made growing garden tomatoes seemalmost insurmountable. It affects other crops, too, most notablybell peppers.Many people have become all too familiar with the symptoms. Youngleaves usually turn bronze and later develop small, dark spots.The growing tips of the tomato die back, and stems of terminalsmay become streaked. Some plants may look one-sided or may bestunted.Plants that are infected early usually don’t develop fruit. Thoseinfected later may produce fruit that’s knotty. The more maturefruit may have light ring spots, and green fruit may have bumpyareas with faint, concentric rings that become easier to see asthey mature, turning red and white or red and yellow.Basically, you just don’t get tomatoes from infected plants.Pepper symptoms are slightly different.The culpritThe virus is spread by tiny insects, thrips, as they feed on theplant. And you can’t control enough to prevent infection, becausethe virus has already spread by the time residual insecticidesprays kill the thrips. The virus has many other hosts, too. Itcan survive in many weeds and crops such as peanuts and tobacco.Commercial growers have more tools to reduce TSWV than gardenershave. So how can you grow tomatoes (or peppers) when the virus ispresent?As with almost any virus, the best control is to use resistantvarieties.Some resistant varieties have been on the market for a few years.Not all are available to gardeners, though, since the seeds ofsome can be bought only in large quantities.More options are becoming available to gardeners now, though. Theseeds of at least seven tomato and two pepper varieties now comein smaller quantities for gardeners.Virus fightersResistant varieties in garden catalogs include “Amelia,” “BHN444,” “BHN 640,” “Bella Rosa,” “Top Gun,” “Crista” and “Muriel.”Muriel is a Roma-type tomato.”Excursion II” and “Heritage” are available pepper varieties.Some sources of these seeds include Harris Seeds (www.harrisseeds.com),Twilley Seed (www.twilleyseed.com) and RuppSeeds (www.ruppseeds.com).Another way to get resistant varieties is to look for seedlingsat your favorite garden center. Seedling plants of thesevarieties, however, may not be easy to find.You may need to look for them, too, under a different varietyname. “Southern Star” is one such variety.One drawback to these varieties is that they probably won’t havequite the flavor of your favorite old garden variety. They werebred for commercial production and shipping. Let them get ripe onthe vine, though, and they’ll be fine.Grow your ownGrowing your own transplants from seed is the best way to makesure you have TSWV-resistant plants. You may want to join withnearby gardeners to grow enough for several people.It’s probably not too late to order seed and get started. Thesevarieties can ease the challenge of growing tomatoes (andpeppers) in the home garden.Another thing that may help control the virus is to use black orreflective plastic mulches. Aluminum foil might be a suitablesubstitute, since these reflective mulches are expensive and hardto find. Even straw mulches may help a little.Keeping garden weeds under control may help, too, since they maybe a host for the disease.(Terry Kelley is a Cooperative Extension horticulturist withthe University of Georgia College of Agricultural andEnvironmental Sciences.) By William Terry KelleyUniversity ofGeorgiaAmong the things that keep gardening interesting are eachseason’s new challenges. Some, however, can turn intofrustration. Tomato spotted wilt virus, for instance, has becomethe plaque of many gardeners over the past few years. Volume XXXINumber 1Page 3last_img read more


Angels rally for 10th inning victory after blowing the lead in the ninth

first_imgTrailing by a run, the Angels went to work in the bottom of the inning when Luis Rengifo singled off the arm of closer Roberto Osuna with one out. Osuna had to come out of the game.Facing Cy Sneed, Jason Castro then blasted a double off the center field fence, tying the game.In the 10th, Noé Ramirez and Ryan Buchter navigated around the Astros free runner in scoring position. Buchter struck out Abraham Toro with the bases loaded to end it.In the bottom of the inning, David Fletcher singled to right, sending Matt Thaiss to third. After Brian Goodwin struck out and Anthony Rendon was intentionally walked to load the bases, Michael Hermosillo hit a fly ball to right field to drive in the winning run. The ball wasn’t very deep, but Reddick’s throw was off line.Hermosillo, who had entered the game for defense and was batting in the No. 4 spot, knew even before he got back in the dugout in the middle of the 10th that the game might come down to him, because he was batting behind Rendon.

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img “They were going to put it in my hands,” said Hermosillo, who collected his first career walk-off. “I figured it was going to be up to me. I was already putting that in my head. I was ready for it.”It was the Angels second try at baseball’s new extra-innings rule, and their first victory.The victory allowed the Angels to escape on a day that they saw once again their closer position is unsettled.Robles has allowed nine earned runs in 3-2/3 innings this season, as his velocity has been down. Last year he had a 2.48 ERA.“He’s just off obviously,” Maddon said. “You’ve all noticed that there’s been a decline in the velocity. We have to figure that out. On top of that, just, it’s a confidence issue, too. You got to pay attention to all of that. Mickey (Callaway) is already on it. He saw some things. He has some ideas, so we’ll see if it plays out.”Although Robles had not pitched well, the Angels put him in position for a save on Saturday after a strong start by Griffin Canning and two clean innings from Felix Peña.Canning was charged with one run in six-plus innings. He had not allowed a run when he walked off the mound in the seventh, but Peña allowed an inherited runner to score.“I think I commanded the ball inside pretty well with my with my fastball,” Canning said. “So I think it just kind of, kind of kept them honest just not being able to to leak out over the plate and kind of get on some stuff those away.”The Angels didn’t do much offensively to support Canning, but they did score a pair of runs in a rally built on solid fundamental baseball.After the Angels failed to manage a baserunner against Zack Greinke in the first five innings, Taylor Ward pulled a single into right with one out in the sixth. Thaiss then executed a hit-and-run, pulling the ball through the hole vacated by second baseman Jose Altuve and sending Ward to third.Fletcher hit a sacrifice fly, to drive in Ward, and Thaiss alertly went from first to second when the throw went to the plate. Thaiss was then able to score on Goodwin’s single into right.Ward helped generate an insurance run in the eighth, leading off with a triple and scoring on a two-out infield hit by Rendon.The would need two more runs to pull out the victory, improving to 3-6. They’ve lost twice when leading in the seventh or later.They are just happy that number isn’t three now.“We’re very close to being in great shape,” Maddon said. “We’re just in a little mediocre shape. We’ve got to nail those wins down.”last_img read more



first_imgFianna Fáil Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has called on Fine Gael and Labour Oireachtas members in Donegal to stand up against deeply unfair cuts in Budget 2013.Senator Ó Domhnaill said the TDs and Senators who have been wrestling with their consciences in public over mean-spirited measures in the Budget have an opportunity this week and next to vote against these cuts.The Donegal Senator said, “This Budget contains some deeply unfair measures that fly in the face of promises made by Fine Gael and Labour to voters here in Donegal and across the country. It is a Budget that takes no account of people’s ability to pay, does nothing to encourage growth and puts further pressure on already badly squeezed lower and middle income families.“A number of Government representatives both locally and nationally, including Fine Gael’s Joe McHugh, have been publically wrestling with their consciences over these callous cuts. Across the country there has been a parade of Fine Gael and Labour representatives muttering about the need for ‘processes’ and ‘consultation’ to change a budget they initially rushed to welcome. “But there is a process this week where they have the power to change these measures. They can vote against the cuts they disagree with during the debate on the Social Welfare Bill this week. My party intends to force votes on the measures we believe will further erode the quality of life of the most vulnerable, and the measures that take no account of ability to pay. These include:– the cut to child benefit– the cut to Respite Care Grant– the cuts to the Farm Assist Programme– the flat rate increase to PRSI affecting all income earners the same“If Government representatives really feel strongly about these callous cuts, they will vote against them instead of supporting them. The Fine Gael TDs here in Donegal can show their constituents that they are prepared to keep their promises.“This is about choices. If the Government had taken Fianna Fái;’s suggestion of adding 3% to the Universal Social Charge (USC) for people on over €100,000 a year and changes to pension tax relief for the country’s highest earners, most of these deeply unfair measures would have been completely unnecessary.” SENATOR CHALLENGES DONEGAL TDs TO STAND UP TO ‘UNFAIR CUTS’ was last modified: December 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:SENATOR CHALLENGES DONEGAL TDs TO STAND UP TO ‘UNFAIR CUTS’last_img read more

The founder of the Dental Marathon makes sure that all schoolchildren in the Free State learn about oral health.Thobile Mushwana is the founder of the Dental Marathon. (Image: Melissa Javan)Bloemfontein based, Play Your Part ambassador Thobile Mushwana is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Dental Marathon, an organisation that aims to raise awareness and funds for oral health care and education in Africa.Dental Marathon was established in 2010 and has had an immensely positive impact since then. More than 180,000 schoolchildren benefit from the Dental Marathon initiative in Thobile’s hometown of Bloemfontein alone. This success necessitated the establishment of a global campaign to garner widespread reach of the impact.Thobile says he has always had the desire to play his part and make a long-term impact on society that will leave a lasting legacy. It is with this passion and aspiration to be an active citizen and contribute positively to society that Thobile led Dental Marathon, its sponsors and volunteers on a mission to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania on 3 June 2017.The Dental Marathon team hopes to raise R10 million to build a Dental Marathon House in Bloemfontein, which will offer free oral healthcare and education for children as well as set up two mobile clinics that will travel throughout South Africa.Following these initial plans, the organisation hopes to establish a house in Limpopo and the Eastern Cape. Once these are complete, the Dental Marathon team has their eye on building houses across the continent.You can follow @ThobileMushwana on Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more


EPA going after atrazine, again

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Many in agriculture are not pleased with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency release of its draft report for the ecological risk assessment of atrazine.Here is the abstract from the EPA draft report released yesterday.“This refined assessment presents the ecological risks posed by the use of the herbicide atrazine. Based on the results from hundreds of toxicity studies on the effects of atrazine on plants and animals, over 20 years of surface water monitoring data, and higher tier aquatic exposure models, this risk assessment concludes that aquatic plant communities are impacted in many areas where atrazine use is heaviest, and there is potential chronic risk to fish, amphibians, and aquatic invertebrates in these same locations. In the terrestrial environment, there are risk concerns for mammals, birds, reptiles, plants and plant communities across the country for many of the atrazine uses. EPA levels of concern for chronic risk are exceeded by as much as 22, 198, and 62 times for birds, mammals, and fish, respectively. For aquatic phase amphibians, a weight of evidence analysis concluded there is potential for chronic risks to amphibians based on multiple effects endpoint concentrations compared to measured and predicted surface water concentrations. The breadth of terrestrial plant species and families potentially impacted by atrazine use at current labeled rates, as well as reduced rates of 0.5 and 0.25 lbs. a.i./A, suggest that terrestrial plant biodiversity and communities are likely to be impacted from off-field exposures via runoff and spray drift. Average atrazine concentrations in water at or above 5 μg/L for several weeks are predicted to lead to reproductive effects in fish, while a 60-day average of 3.4 μg/L has a high probability of impacting aquatic plant community primary productivity, structure and function.”The report was a concern to the farmers who rely upon atrazine in their operations.“With more than 7,000 scientific studies over the past 50 years, atrazine has been proven to be a safe and effective crop management tool. It is one of the most reliable herbicides available,” said Chad Kemp, president of the Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association. “We are dismayed and astounded that the EPA chose to fly in the face of guidance from its own Science Advisory Panel and base this assessment on studies the panel found flawed just four years ago. The trust level in this assessment plunges knowing that faulty studies were used as the basis of this evaluation.”Kemp said that farming without atrazine could cost corn farmers up to $59 per acre, according to a 2012 study by the University of Chicago.“And who pays the price for this not-so-scientific assessment? Consumers will face higher food costs as yields decrease and farm operating costs rise,” Kemp said. “We are deeply disappointed that the EPA has once again chosen to ignore science and, by doing so, has demonstrated its lack of support for and understanding of the farming industry and the negative economic impact its decisions place on consumers. We are urging all farmers and others who care about a plentiful, affordable food supply to contact the EPA and tell them to base their decision on sound science.”The EPA’s draft report on the herbicide atrazine is cause for alarm, according to the Triazine Network, a national coalition of farm organizations representing well over 30 agricultural crops in over 40 states. The group insists if EPA continues to use the same false logic or endpoints as noted in the preliminary risk assessment, it could lead to a de facto ban on atrazine.“EPA’s flawed atrazine report is stomping science into the dirt and setting farmers up for significant economic hardship. We challenge this latest proposal and insist EPA abide by federal law that requires the agency to make determinations based on credible scientific evidence,” said Gary Marshall, Triazine Network Chairman. Marshall is executive director of the Missouri Corn Growers Association. “Again and again, we must ask EPA to follow the law. A regulatory agency should not need to be reminded of that detail.”The Triazine Network asserts the federal agency discounted several high-quality studies and instead used studies EPA‘s own 2012 Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) deemed flawed. According to the latest report, EPA is recommending aquatic life level of concern (LOC) be set at 3.4 parts per billion (ppb) on a 60-day average. The EPA’s current LOC for atrazine is 10 ppb, however a diverse universe of scientific evidence points to a safe aquatic life LOC at 25 ppb or greater. The proposed level cuts average field application rates down to 8 ounces per acre.“At the proposed level, atrazine would be rendered useless in controlling weeds in a large portion of the Corn Belt, effectively eliminating the product,” Marshall said. “It sets a dangerous precedent when it comes to approving crop protection tools, puts farmers at a great economic disadvantage and would drastically set back conservation efforts. If EPA abandons the recommendations of their own Science Advisory Panels and more than 7,000 science-based studies in favor of activist agenda’s and politics; they will have lost all credibility”EPA reregistered atrazine in 2006 and began its regularly scheduled registration re-review June 2013. The process typically takes six years to complete. Once the draft report is published in the Federal Register, EPA will begin collecting comments for 60 days.last_img read more


5 Essential Rules for Working with a Second Camera Op

first_imgWhen you bring a second camera operator onto your film or video shoot, be sure you communicate clearly about these five important elements.If you stay in the film and video game long enough, you’ll find that there are many jobs that you simply can’t do alone. When you get to that point, you have a couple of options. You can join up with a bigger production team, or you can bring on someone to help you out.Bringing on a second camera op can be a big help, but it can also cause some problems if you don’t establish a good line of communication early on. For best results, go over the following five essential topics to maximize the return on investing in a second camera op.1. Project Goals and ScopeImage via Rad K.It’s a good idea to connect early and start chatting about your project. If you can find your camera op several weeks before your shoot, you can meet in person and go over everything in detail. If you’re limited to email or online communication, you can still get ahead of things. Just be sure to completely explain the project’s goals, scope, and details.Also, if you’re paying your second shooter as a contractor, be upfront about how much you’ll pay them — and exactly when they will receive it.2. A-Camera, B-Camera, and AudioImage via guruXOX.You’ll also want to clearly define both your roles on the shoot. Many two-camera projects (whether they involve event coverage, interviews, or anything else) will operate off an A-cam and B-cam setup. If you’re operating the A-camera, you’ll expect your B-camera operator to adjust his or her coverage accordingly (or vice versa). You’ll also want to coordinate when, where, and how you will record audio.3. Recording Settings and StyleImage via SKphotographer.When working on two-camera shoots, it’s ideal to have two of the same camera. However, in the real world, this seems to rarely happen. Your second camera operator may bring a camera of their own, or maybe you’re supplying another one you have at your disposal. Either way, as soon as you know what you’re working with, you’ll want to synchronize your recording settings. Unless you’re looking for different coverage types, its helpful if you sync your FPS, aperture, and picture profiles.4. Coverage PriorityImage via Yulia Grigoryeva.Once you’re on your shoot, depending on your overall coverage goals, you may want to divide and conquer. This is often necessary for event videos, when there’s a lot going on and you need to get as much coverage as possible. If you need to send your second camera off to shoot on their own, give them clear guidelines about your coverage priorities — like filming particular people or brands, certain exteriors or wides, or specific crowd reactions. Let your second camera op know exactly what to look for, ideally with a shot list.5. Footage Handoff and PaymentFinally, when all is said and done and you’ve wrapped your shoot, initiate a quick but professional handoff of footage and/or equipment. Unless you’ve already worked something out, do not let your second camera op leave with cards or footage. Ideally you’ll have a way to upload footage immediately (or take the cards with you). You’ll also want to be clear about how and when you’ll deliver payment. (As I said above, iron this out early into the project — well before you begin shooting — and use a contract.)Cover image by wellphoto.For more film and video production tips and tricks, check out some of these articles as well.How to Use a Third Camera on Interview Shoots3 Tips You Must Know Before Shooting a Multicam ProductionHow to Shoot Gorgeous Documentary InterviewsCapture Live Events Like a Pro with These Simple RulesHow to Make Event Footage More Cinematiclast_img read more
