Illinois Corn on PF Tour Falls Short of 200 Bushels

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Illinois Corn on PF Tour Falls Short of 200 Bushels Home Indiana Agriculture News Illinois Corn on PF Tour Falls Short of 200 Bushels SHARE By Andy Eubank – Aug 24, 2016 SHARE Vermillion Co IL PF Tour cornOn Day 3 of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour’s eastern leg Wednesday, scouts scattered out from Bloomington, Illinois first thing in the morning and ended up in Iowa City, Iowa at day’s end.Peter Meyer with PIRA Energy Group says what his crew sampled in Illinois did not impress him that much.“Maybe my expectations were a little bit too high, but I think generally the western Indiana crops impressed me. The Illinois crops, the corn was ok. I’m not sure it makes 200 bpa where NASS says they are at the moment, but I’m very disappointed in the beans.”USDA-NASS did set the bar very high for the Illinois corn crop this year, but Meyer said the estimates he and his fellow scouts came up with Wednesday will have Illinois corn falling short.“To get to 200 you need to be pulling 240’s and 250’s with regularity. We did start out well, 248, 229, 232, 240, but then you get the 162 and the 171. And yesterday coming in from Indiana to Illinois we averaged 177. It’s going to be hard to get those numbers up to the 200 number that NASS is looking for.”As Meyer looked at soybean fields along his route, he noticed some issues that will also put a dent in expected yields across Illinois, including the first pod developing very high up the plant and more 2 bean pods than expected.“There’s no question about it that the pods are too high up,” Meyer said. “Regarding the 2’s vs. the 4, you never like to see 2’s but I can tell you that the conversations I’ve had with guys over the last three days, there’s more conversation about the 2’s than there are about the 4’s. That’s the reason we only count pods on the crop tour. Very, very difficult to assess, otherwise we’d be there all day counting every bean in every pod.”The final numbers for Illinois came in at 193.50 bushels to the acre for corn and 1318.09 pods of soybeans in a 3 foot by 3 foot square.Thursday is the 4th and final day of the tour as scouts from the eastern and western legs meet up in Rochester, Minnesota on Thursday night. You can ride right along with the scouts all day by following the tour online at www.ProFarmer.com. You can also keep track of the progress on twitter with #pftour16.(Thanks Ty Higgins for this story from the tour!)

Dangerous Liasons

first_imgAlthough Dangerous Liaisons may be best known to many from the 1980s Glenn Close adaptation or it’s more recent incarnation, Cruel Intentions, Quo Vadis’ production stands on its own two feet as a fine example of Oxford’s thespian talent. With its timeless story of intrigue, lust, and revenge, Dangerous Liaisons details the manipulations and seductions of the Marquise de Merteuil and her sparring partner, the caddish Vicomte de Valmont.   Alexander Stewart’s Valmont alternates between a sinister whisper and an assertive roar, stalking his prey around the stage, while Emerald Fennell sparkles as the scheming Marquise, calmly controlling the ingenuous Cécile de Volanges. Although one does spend much of the play watching the actors in profile as they banter across the stage, this heightens the intimacy in the moments where they are physically close. The staging conveys the complicated dance of Parisian aristocratic society, notably emphasising Cecile’s youth and social inexperience. The exchanges between Cécile (Sophie Siem) and a tuneful Chévailer Danceny are a pleasure to watch.  Based on an epistolatory novel, naturally the dialogue is heavily rhetorical and at times may seem artificial, but the cast rise to the challenge of pulling it off without descending into pantomime or farce. Jonathan Rhodes provides a delightful comic touch to his portrayal of Valmont’s manservant, Azolan. Reminiscent of an eighteenth century Reginald Jeeves, Azolan’s cynicism tempers Valmont’s more sinister moments.   Promising stunning costumes, some of which were featured in the recent Kirsten Dunst film, Marie-Antoinette, and with excerpts of contemporary music by Glück, Dangerous Liaisons demonstrates attention to detail and commitment to authenticity. Sure to be even more impressive when installed in the Moser Theatre, this production should appeal to even the most dedicated admirers of Choderlos de Laclos’s literary masterpiece, or of previous adaptations of Hampton’s play.  by Chantal Hadleylast_img read more

Your say: letters

first_imgIn his articles for British Baker Tony Phillips said what most of us think but are too frightened to say. Not for him a mass of meaningless gibberish and jargon, trotted out on every occasion by many so called business leaders.His writings were full of common sense, a commodity in very short supply. He will be greatly missed.Patrick Sullivan, Managing director, Frigova ProduceRoy Flint, a great asset to the NAMB, lost his fight against cancer on Wednesday 4 February. Roy came up through the ranks of the London and South East Region to become the youngest male NAMB president in 1995. From sterling work as chairman of finance, he went on to be a no-nonsense treasurer of the association.Roy was a craft baker as well as a supplier to some major supermarkets. Initially the business was made up of Roy, his dedicated wife Elizabeth, son William in the bakery and James in marketing. William is now heavily involved in health and safety and James joined the police force.Roy was proud of his family and grand-children. In his spare time, he was also a keen sailor. Roy is another character of the NAMB and will be truly missed by those who knew him.Gill Brooks-Lonican, CEO, NAMBRenowned pastry chef Gaston Lenôtre passed away last month.This was particularly sad news for myself, and Honeyrose, as I had the privilege of doing my apprenticeship with him at his Paris school, Ecole Lenôtre, in the mid-1980s. He took me under his wing, perhaps as I was learning French and new to Paris, and encouraged me to join his staff while I finished my training there. I can still remember when Gaston would make the rounds at his school all the apprentices would be terrified – he did not abide incompetence and was highly vocal, not shying from giving public dressing-downs if he felt they were deserved. But he was equally generous in his praise when he found that spark in a student that had tried, that had “it”. We lived for that praise.Once graduating from Ecole Lenôtre, I was honoured to be asked to join his management team, starting with internal staff training at Lenôtre, and then went on to open Lenôtre’s operations into the German market. I started Honeyrose Bakery in the UK, based on craft baking skills I had learned from Gaston Lenôtre.Lenôtre’s Paris production centre had 500 bakers baking by hand, inimitably focusing on quality and taste. He proved that quality hand-baking can be a scale business by growing the company to over 35 stores in 12 countries, then selling it to the hotel group Accor in 1985.Lise Madsen, Founder and MD, Honeyrose Bakerylast_img read more
