In-season scouting and data collection with APPs

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By John Fulton, Trey Colley, and Jenna LeeCollecting in-season data including scouting intel and imagery can be useful on the farm. For those conducting on-farm studies, collecting data beyond yield can provide valuable context when evaluating yield results post-harvest. There are several mobile applications (APPs) available today that can assist with scouting and collecting data. The value with many of these APPs is having:Information at your fingertipsEfficient collection and storage of data, images, notes, etc.The ability to share collected information with others quicklyAccess to collected information later in the season, post-harvest or next yearThe capability to geo-tag while collecting data and imagesData and information available when evaluating post-harvest results.One app that allows you to have all of benefits in one is the Ohio State PLOTS App. This is an on-farm research app provided by The Ohio State University free of charge. PLOTS allows the user to set-up replicated field studies, capture geo-tagged notes/images during the growing season, and performs statistical analyses on collected crop data. PLOTS is a safe, secure, and is backed up to cloud storage. We also suggest having a good weather APP that you can reference throughout the growing season.Many other apps allow for in-season data management and recording, here are a few that we currently use: Planting Population Calculator by AgPhD — planting population and stand countsOhio State PLOTS — generate plots and statistics for on-farm researchClimate Fieldview by the Climate Corporation — collect and store field dataSoil Test Pro — lab results, fertilizer recommendations and controller filesEncirca View — field location via satellite imagery and notes/photosAirScout — aerial imagery based scouting applicationTrimble AgMobile — record keeping, crop scouting, mapping, grid samplingWeather Underground — hyperlocal forecasts, interactive radar, severe weather alertsField Pest by AgPhD — identify pests by name or image.This list does not represent all APPs that can be used for in-season data collection.

Muharram processions banned in Kashmir Valley

first_imgThe Jammu & Kashmir government on Saturday completely banned Muharram processions — where Shia Muslims observe the martyrdom of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson 1400 years ago — in Kashmir due to current restrictions arising in the aftermath of the revocation of J&K’s special status.“In view of the imposition of Section 144 of the CrPC and in order to avoid any loss to life and property, the government has decided that no procession shall be allowed in district Srinagar on Muharram 8th, 9th, 10th, which fall on September 8, 9, 10 respectively,” said the government order.Traditionally, Shias would carry out a huge procession from Lal Chowk to Dalgate. The practice was banned in 1989 as militancy broke out. These religious processions would convert into anti-India protests. However, large processions would be allowed in all Shia-majority areas of Zadibal, Budgam and Hasnabad. The government move comes after Shia Muslims clashed with security forces and raised pro-freedom slogans in Srinagar’s Hasnabad area and parts of Budgam district in the past 24 hours. Police said security forces used pellet shotguns and teargas shells to contain these processions in the old city in Srinagar.last_img read more

Mamata’s time is over: BJP working chief

first_imgBharatiya Janata Party (BJP) working president J.P. Nadda on Friday targeted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for her alleged opposition to abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and said “the time of her government is over.”“Is her vote bank bigger than national interest for Mamata Banerjee?” asked Mr. Nadda.Mr. Nadda asked his party workers to go and ask every person whether the abrogation of Article 370 was necessary or not.“I want to know from Mamata what sort of politics is this,” he said. And where are they trying to take the country? If the country is there, and it remains strong people will in normal course of things come to power or go out of power,” Mr. Nadda said.He also criticised Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, saying that Mr. Gandhi’s statements “were used by Pakistan to oppose India in the United Nations.”Ms. Banerjee had said the process of revocation of Article 370 in Kashmir was done using “undemocratic means” and “under the shadow of the gun.”She, however, had not said anything to indicate that she was opposed to its abrogation.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd coach Carrick: Dubai trip fantastic for squadby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United assistant coach Michael Carrick says taking the squad to Dubai this week has been the right decision.Carrick, who has been reunited with former colleagues Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan in his first season after retiring as a player, explained that the climate in the Middle East enables the staff to focus on more detailed sessions.“It’s fantastic. It allows us to train in a way where you probably can’t do it at home, at this moment, with it being so cold,” reported Carrick. “We can work on different things. When it’s freezing cold at home, you’ve got to keep on the move and you don’t want the lads standing around too much.“So here we’ll work hard, especially over the next few days, and prepare for Sunday, but it allows us to maybe spend a little bit more time on the training ground and go into a little bit more detail, which we need at this moment.“As you can imagine, it’s quite a happy camp. When you’re winning football matches, you can’t put a price on the feeling that gives you, and the confidence and the belief.”You almost sense a calmness when you’re winning games. It’s great to see the lads enjoying themselves. The football’s flowing, the training’s good, they’re bouncing around the place, and it’s nice to see.” last_img read more

Former NFL Receiver Reche Caldwell Arrested For Selling Ecstasy

Reche Caldwell, former NFL receiver, was arrested in Tampa and accused of selling the drug “Ecstasy,” his second arrest in five months. He was released from jail on Wednesday after posting a $2,000 bond. Caldwell faces one felony charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell.Caldwell, 35, was arrested in January for allegedly spearheading an illegal gambling operation in Tampa with two other men. According to jail records, Caldwell has been arrested four times in Tampa since 2009.Prior to Caldwell’s criminal problems, he was standout receiver at the University of Florida, and eventually became a second-round pick by the San Diego Chargers in 2002. Caldwell was an underachiever throughout his career, but he had 760 receiving yards and four touchdowns with the Patriots in 2006. He spent the 2007 season with the Washington Redskins before his career ended.Broncos receiver Andre Caldwell is Reche’s younger brother. Andre Caldwell signed a two-year, $3.45-million deal with the Denver Broncos this offseason. He is expected to move up Denver’s depth chart after Eric Decker’s signing with the New York Jets during free agency. read more

More People Are Running Fewer Are Playing Bar Sports

Running, jogging and triathlons are in. Football, paintball and horseback riding are out. So are sports that can be enjoyed with a beer — or three.That’s the quick take on the latest survey from the Sport & Fitness Industry Association, released Monday. The group — a partnership of six industry associations — fielded nearly 20,000 surveys in January and February, asking Americans (both individuals and households) about their physical activity last year. Overall activity was flat, a turnaround from declines in recent years.Individual sports and activities, though, showed bigger changes, some of them dramatic. The number of people who participated at least once in adventure racing or a traditional triathlon increased by more than 25 percent last year compared with the year before. Meanwhile, nonmotorized scooter-riding and non-inline roller skating experienced big declines.Even with such a big sample, year-by-year changes in individual sports may not mean much. I limited the analysis to activities with an estimate of at least 2 million participants last year, but that still means a change of 10 percent could be a difference of just a dozen or so respondents. And that’s when looking at total participants. The group also reports more regular participants, but that means an even smaller sample size. (Also, as I noted when writing about this survey in a recent piece, the survey is fielded only in English, which could skew results for activities that are unusually popular or unpopular among U.S. residents who are less comfortable speaking to strangers in English.)We get a more reliable picture when looking at five-year trends.Triathlon and adventure racing still top the gainers list. Kayaking, trail running and yoga are other solitary or noncompetitive endeavors increasing in popularity. Meanwhile, activities popular in bars or in other venues where beer often is sold — including pool, darts and bowling — are losing ground. So are all varieties of football — though touch football sustained the biggest percentage decline, suggesting concussion fears aren’t solely to blame.To sum up: We’re bowling alone — or together — less often, but running, paddling or posing more. read more
