Avoid Late Spring and Early Summer Weed Escapes

first_img SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 10, 2013 SHARE Avoiding weed escapesA wet spring has led to late planting of soybeans for many farmers and they might have to skip their pre-emerge programs once field conditions allow for continuous planting. That will bring a post emerge soybean herbicide program into sharper focus.Brent Neuberger, senior technical service manager at FMC Agricultural Products, says the best timing for that application will largely be dictated by Mother Nature, “but the thing I think is paramount is that we make applications, at least post emerge applications based on weed size. We know from experience that as those weeds get larger they become more difficult so ideally we’d like to target weeds less than four inches tall to get the ideal control that we’re desiring.”Actual weed pressure in Indiana and across the Midwest so far is varied, but FMC says best control will come with multiple modes of action in the post application.“As we look at resistance becoming more of an issue those pre-emerges were a big part of fighting that resistance and different mode of action. Now we’ve got to bring products in with that glyphosate and that’s where Marvel comes in. It’s different modes of action than what glyphosate is so we’re getting multiple modes of action out there so we have a better chance to get the control that grower desires.”Marvel is new in the fields having received final approval earlier this year.As usual to get the best view of what weeds are in your fields, Neuberger says scout.“We need to identify what weeds are out there and what sizes. Obviously a lot of these fields will have history that growers and or retailers should know if it’s been a field where we’ve seen glyphosate resistance. That being the case we’re going to have to make sure we have something in the tank with glyphosate.”Learn more about Marvel, the aggressive tank-mix partner for maximum control of glyphosate-resistant weeds, by visiting the FMC website, www.FMCcrop.com, or by contacting your retailer.Postemergence weed control in soybeans is becoming more of a challenge because of glyphosate resistance. Increasing herbicide diversity, including multiple modes of action, with postemergence herbicide applications will increase weed spectrum and preserve the effectiveness of current herbicide trait technologies. PPO (protoporphyrinogen oxidase) herbicides, such as Marvel, when added with postemergence glyphosate or glufosinate applications, will diversify chemistry in addition to weed spectrum. Foliar coverage is critical for maximizing PPO herbicide effectiveness.Marvel herbicide targets waterhemp, palmer pigweed, lambsquarters and other key weeds with broad-spectrum control.The full HAT interview:Brent Neuberger on Marvel Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Avoid Late Spring and Early Summer Weed Escapes Avoid Late Spring and Early Summer Weed Escapes Previous articleEthanol Group Praises Senate Farm Bill for Blender Pumps and E15Next articleSeed Consultants 6/11/2013 Market Watch with Gary Wilhelmi Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures About Author: Krista F. Brock Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News Bolstering its efforts to prevent property tax-related foreclosures, the city of Detroit announced Wednesday it is expanding its Homeowners Property Tax Assistance Program (HPTAP).The main change to the program is that it will now offer a 25% property tax exemption to homeowners within certain income thresholds. Previously, homeowners could qualify for either 50% or 100% property tax exemptions if their incomes were below certain amounts. Now homeowners earning above those amounts can also qualify for some tax assistance.The program previously offered 100% property tax exemptions to families of two earning $22,754 or less. Families of two earning $23,336 or less could qualify for a 50% property tax exemption.Under the updated program, families of two earning $25,703 or less can qualify for a 25% property tax reduction. For a full chart of income eligibility and information on applying for a full or partial property tax exemption, residents can visit the City of Detroit website. The city is now accepting applications.“This year we set out to increase the number of Detroit families assisted through HPTAP, and I am proud of our work in collaboration with Quicken Loans Community Fund, United Community Housing Coalition, and community groups to meet this goal,” said Detroit Chief Financial Officer David Massaron with the announcement of the HPTAP program expansion.Detroit approved 30% more property tax exemptions in 2019 than 2018. The city approved full or partial exemptions for 7,601 homeowners, totaling nearly $5 million in property tax exemptions for the year. The city noted in its announcement that this is close to double the amount approved in 2014.The expansion to the HPTAP also expands eligibility to Detroit’s Pay as You Stay (PYAS) Program, which was passed by the State house of Representatives in December. Through PYAS, homeowners facing foreclosure can obtain affordable payment plans.“Thanks to the help of our great community partners, we have made a lot of progress reducing foreclosures by more than 90 percent and getting more Detroiters to apply for property tax exemptions,” said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. “Expanding access to property tax exemptions will help reach more Detroit families that may be struggling to pay their property tax bills and help them avoid possible foreclosure.”Detroit has faced criticism for its practices regarding foreclosures due to delinquent property taxes. In December, DS News reported that one in four Detroit homeowners owes more in overdue property taxes than they did three years ago, according to information reported in The Detroit News.After a Michigan home was foreclosed due to an unpaid property tax bill of $8.41, the Pacific Legal Foundation called on the Michigan Supreme Court to stop a law they said allowed counties to “profit” from foreclosures, according to a DS News article late last year.Quicken Loans stepped in to help Detroit homeowners with the Neighbor to Neighbor initiative funded through the Quicken Loans Community Fund. Quicken reported in May 2019 that it helped 4,316 homeowners avoid foreclosure in 2018. default Detroit tax foreclosure 2020-01-09 Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures Tagged with: default Detroit tax foreclosure Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe Related Articles January 9, 2020 2,382 Views center_img  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.

RIO 2016: Egypt’s beach volleyball team stand out in defeat

first_imgEgypt’s women’s beach volleyball team might have lost to Germany in their opening pool match – but they have won a greater victory.Doaa El-Ghobashi and Nada Moawad are the first-ever women from Egypt to make it to the Olympic beach volleyball competition – and though they fell to Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst, it will be their appearance that the viewers remember.That’s because, contrary to popular belief, bikinis aren’t actually compulsory for the beach volleyball players.In 2012, the sport’s governing body brought in a rule change allowing players to wear full body suits in cold weather – and plenty took that opportunity in the chill London air in the summer of 2012.And after a late ruling, El-Ghobashi has been given permission to play veiled, having been very clear that she “double-checked the outfit freedom in this sport before agreeing to join [it]” – and both women are covered up when they set foot on the sand. Ironically, with all the flesh on show from the men and the women’s competitions, it was the Egyptian pair who drew the most stares in Rio with their attire.And even though they were well beaten by their German opponents, they battled to the end.El-Ghobashi and Moawad took the African title in 2015 – despite having little international match practice, switching from the indoor version to the beach format.Beach volleyball gets a bad reputation as a sport not to be taken seriously, as simply an opportunity to ogle. El-Ghobashi and Moawad’s arrival on the Olympic stage shows that it is more than that; it offers the opportunity for athletes, of all creeds and colours and countries, to compete and to excel.last_img read more
