Making Your Side Dress Pay Off

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Making Your Side Dress Pay Off Previous articleCanada, U.S., Ag Leaders Talk TradeNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 7, 2017 Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Making Your Side Dress Pay Off By Gary Truitt – Jun 6, 2017 Facebook Twitter Making Your Side Dress Pay OffSide-dressing nitrogen is more important than ever this spring.  The heavy spring rains in Indiana have reduced the nitrogen available to corn this year. Scott Lay, with Loveland Products, says side-dressing nitrogen is a practice that makes both economic and agronomic sense this year, “Whenever you can apply nitrogen close to when the plant will be needing it is a good thing and will give you a better result. A second factor is that  supplemental applications of nitrogen in season are more incrementally sound.”  He said this keeps nitrogen from moving out of the field and into groundwater.Lay says adding a product called Accomplish LM to you liquid nitrogen can increase the effectiveness of your application, “When it is applied with liquid nitrogen, it helps make more nutrients available to the plant and it holds more nitrogen in a plant available ammonia nitrate form.”  He said, if a farmer is going to write a check for a supplemental nitrogen application, he wants to get the best use of that application and, with Accomplish, that will happen.Lay says having adequate nitrogen in the soil over the next 6 weeks will be critical to boosting yields, “This is when a corn plant will use 60% of all the nitrogen it will consume during this time period. When you mix Accomplish with liquid nitrogen you can realize a 6 bpa benefit.” Lay said Accomplish is not a new product and has a proven track record in field trials and on-farm use. It is easy to manage and will work in a variety of side dress and applications methods.Loveland products has produced a webinar on the technical and agronomic aspects of side-dress nitrogen.

RSF decries increase in Vietnam’s mistreatment of imprisoned journalists

first_imgNews March 7, 2019 RSF decries increase in Vietnam’s mistreatment of imprisoned journalists “Hell” Follow the news on Vietnam “My husband was transferred to the other end of the country without my being informed,” RSF was told by Nguyen Thi Kim Thanh, the wife of Truong Minh Duc, a journalist sentenced to 12 years in prison in April 2018. “Now I have to travel around 2,000 km in order to visit him, although he has high blood pressure and heart problems. Our lives have become a hell.” VietnamAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesOnline freedomsMedia independence InternetCitizen-journalistsWhistleblowersFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam Held since January 2017 and now serving a seven-year prison sentence, Nguyen Van Hoa began his hunger strike on 22 February and wrote a letter to district and provincial authorities and to the Supreme Procuratorate’s office in Hanoi listing all the cases of mistreatment to which he has been subjected. He says he will continue the hunger strike if all those responsible for this mistreatment are not investigated in accordance with the Socialist Republic of Vietnam’s laws and constitution. “By flouting its own legislation, Vietnam is yet again demonstrating its contempt for press freedom and the rule of law. We call on the United Nations special rapporteur on torture to consider the possible courses of action for obtaining an end to these human rights violations.” RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang “It is absolutely unacceptable that a journalist who is in prison just for trying to inform his fellow citizens has been reduced to depriving himself of food in order to ensure respect for his most basic rights, including the right to physical integrity,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. Organisation Torture “Destroy me mentally” “The guards were told to do everything possible to make my life a misery,” he said. “The water they gave me in the morning had an absolutely nauseating smell. When I was ill, they pressured me by threatening to withhold my medicine. During my first 20 days in detention, they systematically added uncooked grains to my rice, which made it almost uneatable. As for my family, no one was allowed to come and see me for 11 months.” What follows are just a few other examples of the appalling conditions inflicted on the 29 dissident citizen-journalists currently detained in Vietnam, in which the authorities seem to stop at nothing in order to maintain the pressure on them. April 27, 2021 Find out more April 22, 2021 Find out more Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh, a blogger who used the blog name of Me Nam (Mother Mushroom), also went on hunger strike in prison in July 2018 in protest against the inhuman conditions to which she was being subjected. She ended up being released in October on condition that she left the country. Nguyen Van Dai, a blogger who was given a 15-year jail sentence in the same trial as Truong Minh Duc, was released in June 2018 on condition that he left the country. He now has political refugee status in Germany, where RSF met with him in order to ask about the conditions in which he was held.center_img All this meanness by the prison administration had just one aim – “to destroy me mentally,” Dai said. “Even before I was officially placed under arrest, the police had beaten me badly (…) So, during my first few days in isolation, I convinced myself that it would be a mistake not to fight back.” RSF_en Vietnam has long been near the bottom of RSF’s World Press Freedom Index and is ranked 175th out of 180 countries in the 2018 Index. to go further News Dai is convinced that foreign pressure on Hanoi can help improve conditions for citizen-journalists in Vietnam. “Without international advocacy, I would still be serving my 15-year prison sentence,” he said. Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Hoa, who reported for the US broadcaster Radio Free Asia, was arrested on 11 January 2017 for filming protests, and spent the next nine days in police custody, during which he was hung by the hands and beaten by eight policemen. They also subjected him to the same form of water torture that US soldiers used on their Viet Cong prisoners during the Vietnam War. As the detained Vietnamese blogger and video reporter Nguyen Van Hoa continues a two-week-old hunger strike in protest against the beatings he has received in prison, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) announces that it is referring the increase in mistreatment of Vietnam’s imprisoned journalists to the United Nations special rapporteur on torture. Nguyen Dang Minh Man, a blogger and photojournalist held since 2011, has received the same treatment. Her family, who live in Tra Vinh, a city in the far south, must travel the length of Vietnam to visit her in prison in Thanh Hoa, in the north. She went on hunger strike again in March 2017 in protest against the latest violence inflicted on her. In November 2014, she weighed only 35 kg after a previous series of hunger strikes that year.

Ruling on cartoonist’s suit awaited, ban on political cartoons still in place

first_imgNews Organisation Receive email alerts News News March 17, 2021 Find out more MalaysiaAsia – Pacific MalaysiaAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Malaysia Record fine for Malaysian news site over readers’ comments Newscenter_img RSF_en New Malaysian ordinance threatens very concept of truth The final hearing in a civil action that the political cartoonist Zulkiflee Anwar Haque, also known as Zunar, brought against the Malaysian state and police, accusing them of detaining him unlawfully and causing him material losses in September 2010, is scheduled to take place on 23 July.Reporters Without Borders is hoping for a fair ruling, one that recognizes the illegality of Zunar’s treatment. Such a decision would be all the more important in the current pre-election climate.“The Election Commission’s ban on cartoons during the last 14 days before the upcoming parliamentary elections reflects the government inability to tolerate criticism,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Cartoons are an essential element of a free press. It is important that the role of political cartoonists should not be challenged and that they are not the victims of arrests and searches, as Zunar was in September 2010. We hope that the court will render him justice on 23 July and that it will finally recognize that his arrest and the seizure of his cartoon books were indeed illegal.”Zunar’s civil action relates to the raid that the police carried out on his office on 24 September 2010, seizing 66 copies of a collection of his cartoons called “Cartoon-o-phobia” on the day they were to have been published and detaining him for more than 24 hours on a sedition charge. If the court rules against him, he may have to pay up to 40.000 ringgits (10,000 euros).Zunar has meanwhile resumed his battle against the government’s censorship policies in the run-up to the parliamentary elections, the date of which has yet to be set. Under his leadership, a group of cartoonists called Kumpulan Kartunis Independent (KKI) has undertaken to wage a cartoon campaign about government scandals. The cartoons will be published during the last 14 days before the elections, in defiance of the ban. The participants include Nor Azlin Ngah (Jonos), Azmie Muhammad Taha, Johnny Ong, Azman Muhammad Noh (AMN), Nor Afendi Ramli (Ronasina) and Amir Hakim (Ahyat).One of the main targets of their cartoons will be alleged kickbacks in the sale of two French “Scorpène” submarines to Malaysia in 2002. Prime Minister Najib Razak, who was defence minister at the time, has been linked to the case, currently the subject of a judicial investigation in France.The KKI is openly opposing the election campaign ban on cartoons which the Election Commission imposed on 30 May. Based on Section 4A of the 1958 Elections Act, it threatens violators with a sentence of up to five years in prison or a fine of up to 10,000 ringgits (2,500 euros) or both.“The banning of cartoons during the election is comical and ludicrous,” Zunar says. “Cartooning is a legally-practiced medium in Malaysia and therefore the Commission does not have the right to forbid its use (…) As a cartoonist, it is my duty to expose corrupt practices, wrong-doings, wastage of public funds and injustice by the government. The ban by the Malaysian government contradicts the freedom of expression provided to all citizens as cited in the Malaysian Constitution. It is also an attempt to silence the critics and to stop dissident views.”Zunar was awarded the Courage In Editorial Cartoon prize by Cartoonist Rights Network International in 2011. His five collections of cartoons are currently banned in Malaysia under the Printing Presses and Publications Act. He filed an appeal against this ban in July 2010 but it was rejected. to go further July 19, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ruling on cartoonist’s suit awaited, ban on political cartoons still in place Help by sharing this information February 22, 2021 Find out more Malaysian cartoonist Zunar facing possible sedition charge again January 29, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
