Purdue Confirms SDS, Showing up in Indiana Soybeans

first_img By Gary Truitt – Sep 5, 2013 Purdue Confirms SDS, Showing up in Indiana Soybeans Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Confirms SDS, Showing up in Indiana Soybeans SHARE Facebook Twitter Soybean producers should look for sudden death syndrome, or SDS, and brown stem rot when scouting fields over the next few weeks in order to identify the fungal diseases and prevent future yield loss due to disease. Soybean fields across Indiana have started to show symptoms of SDS, and brown stem rot is another disease sometimes confused with SDS. Yield loss from the diseases can be minor or major, depending on how widespread they become – which is why identification is key. “There is no in-season management for these diseases, but it’s important to identify fields that have the diseases to prevent yield loss in future years,” said Kiersten Wise, Purdue Extension plant pathologist. “It can help to know which fields have the diseases so producers can select disease-resistant varieties for the next time the fields are planted to soybean.”Symptoms of SDS, caused by the fungus Fusarium virguliforme, aren’t typically noticed until August, even though the fungus infects plants early in the growing season during wet, cool weather. Many soybeans emerged from wet soils this spring, so Wise cautioned producers to look for SDS and brown stem rot.The diseases have similar foliar symptoms, which include yellowing or browning between the leaf veins.”You can tell the difference between SDS and brown stem rot by examining the internal tissue in the lower stem of the plant,” Wise said. “The first step is to pull up the plant and split the lower stem. With SDS you’ll see discoloration in the cortex of the stem and root. Whereas with brown stem rot you’ll see a discoloration in the pith.”The pith of plants affected by SDS will remain white. In some instances, both diseases might be present in a plant, which can make diagnosis difficult.Identifying the diseases can help producers make good management decisions the next time a particular field goes into soybeans.”For instance, if you know a field has the disease, you can select a variety for next year that will be less susceptible to either disease,” Wise said. “It is important to be sure if you have SDS or brown stem rot since varieties that have resistance to brown stem rot might not necessarily be resistant to SDS, and vice versa.”Each seed company has varieties rated for SDS and brown stem rot resistance, so producers should contact their local seed dealers when selecting resistant varieties.

On January 30, both the petitioners were arrested by police of Rural Police Station, Beed and produced before the Judicial Magistrate First Class, Beed on the same day. The Judicial Magistrate First Class granted bail to both the petitioners and they were released when they furnished personal bond and surety bond. According to the petitioners that when they came out of the campus of Court, the same police arrested them immediately and they were taken before the Executive Magistrate, Beed. On the same day both the petitioners were produced before the Executive Magistrate, Beed and the Executive Magistrate made an order against the petitioners and directed them to give interim bond with two solvent sureties of Rs.25,000 each. Petitioners moved an application before the Executive Magistrate and requested to permit them to give cash security in place of surety bond and they submitted that they had applied for getting a solvency certificate, but such certificate generally is not issued immediately. The Executive Magistrate did not allow this application and adjourned the matter to the next date. As a result, petitioners were kept in custody for 6 days from January 30, 2013.SubmissionsAccording to the petitioner’s lawyer Advocate NR Thorat contended that there are mala fides in the action taken by police and the Executive Magistrate also did not pass necessary orders and due to that they were illegally detained in jail from January 30, 2013 for six days. Petitioners are not habitual offenders, in fact Shailendra Tagad was serving the military at the relevant time and Arun Tagad was a respected person and resident of the same locality as the complainant and so detention was not necessarily in the chapter case. The arrest and detention were illegal and there is violation of the fundamental rights of the petitioners, Adv Thorat submitted.In the reply filed by respondent police head constable, who was investigating the aforesaid crime, it is contended that the Deputy Superintendent of Police, Beed Division had directed this police station to take preventive measures against the petitioners. The said direction was given on wireless.According to police head constable Bansi Jaibhaye, when the petitioners were released on bail by Judicial Magistrate First Class, he asked the petitioners to appear before the Executive Magistrate on the same day and he did not arrest them. On that day, a report was submitted to the Executive Magistrate who directed the petitioners to give a bond of Rs.25,000 with two solvent sureties. However, the petitioners failed to comply with this order and the matter was adjourned to February 5, 2013 by the Executive Magistrate, the said constable contended.JudgmentAfter hearing the submissions, the Court noted that the records show that the police station requested the Executive Magistrate to start chapter proceeding under Section 107 of CrPC and obtain interim bond from them under Section 116(3) of CrPC. The bench said-“The provision of Section 107(1) of the Code of Criminal Procedure shows that there are conditions for starting the proceeding under this section….In the present matter, the record shows that there was only a police report of aforesaid police head constable before the Executive Magistrate and that was in respect of registration of aforesaid crime. The report does not show that any document including a copy of aforesaid FIR was supplied to the Executive Magistrate. On this report itself, the Executive Magistrate made the order and directed the Petitioners to execute interim bonds under Section 116(3) of the Code of Criminal Procedure of aforesaid nature. The record produced and the reply of the police head constable does not show that before passing such order, any order of show cause as required under Section 111 of the Code of Criminal Procedure was made.”Moreover, the bench observed that the police head constable’s submission that he had only directed the petitioners to appear before the Executive Magistrate when they were released on bail by the Judicial Magistrate First Class appears to be incorrect and false. Court said-“The aforesaid order of interim bond made by the Executive Magistrate shows that the petitioners were brought before the Executive Magistrate by police head constable Jaibhaye. This circumstance supports the contention of the petitioners that immediately after their release on bail by the Judicial Magistrate First Class, they were taken in custody by police and they were produced before the Executive Magistrate. Though there is such clear probability, there is no record to show their formal arrest under any provision of law after they were released by the Judicial Magistrate First Class in aforesaid crime.”Finally, the bench noted that the said order of the Executive Magistrate was illegal-“The order of the Executive Magistrate asking the present Petitioners to execute interim bonds of aforesaid nature is illegal. The bond was involving onerous condition, two sureties having solvency certificates of Rs.25,000 each for each opponent. These circumstances show that there were mala fides and the intention of the police was to see that the Petitioners are arrested and they are kept behind bars for a few days. The record and circumstances show that the Executive Magistrate acted as per such desire of police and he did not apply his mind. The Executive Magistrate ought to have gone through the aforesaid provisions which show that he had no such jurisdiction.”Directing the State to pay Rs.50,000 each to the petitioners, the Court observed that said compensation has to be paid within 45 days, failing which the amount will carry interest at the rate of 8% per annum. Court also said that it was open for the STate to recover the same from the erring officers and the Executive Magistrate.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Mourinho becomes best paid manager in the Premier League after signing four-year deal at Chelsea

first_imgThe ‘Special One’ is back. Chelsea have announced that Jose Mourinho has been appointed as the club’s manager.The Portuguese coach has been give a four-year deal and will work under the title of ‘First-Team Manager’.It’s also understood the Blues have made him the highest paid manager in the Premier League with the 50-year-old earning £8.5m a year after tax.In a statement on the club’s website, chief executive Ron Gourlay said: “I am delighted to welcome Jose back to Chelsea. His continued success, drive and ambition made him the outstanding candidate.“It is our aim to keep the club moving forward to achieve greater success in the future and Jose is our number one choice as we believe he is the right manager to do just that.“He was and remains a hugely popular figure at the club and everyone here looks forward to working with him again.” We will have to wait to hear what Mourinho himself has to say. He will be officially presented at a news conference next Monday (10 June) although an exclusive interview with him will be screened on Chelsea TV this evening at 6.30pm.Today’s news ends months of speculation that Mourinho would return to Stamford Bridge. He was pictured in London last night and in his final interview in Spain, given after his final match in charge of Real Madrid, he said: “I’m going to London on Monday and I think that between Monday and the end of the week I will be the Chelsea manager.”Mourinho’s time at Real Madrid ended in all out war with both the fans and his dressing room divided over the controversial manager. Speaking after the Osasuna match, the departing Real coach suggested Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Iker Casillas had all ruled themselves out of the last game of the season.It was announced last month that Mourinho would depart the Bernabeu at the end of the campaign after three years in charge which yielded one league title and the Spanish Cup, and he once again stated his desire to move to a club at which he feels appreciated.“I feel the people there (Chelsea) love me and in life you have to look for that. “Life is beautiful and short and you must look for what you think is best for you,” he added.Mourinho will bring assistant coaches Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais to Stamford Bridge and they will work alongside current first-team staff Steve Holland, Christophe Lollichon and Chris Jones.During Mourinho’s previous spell in charge of Chelsea, he won back-to-back Premier League titles from 2005, the League Cup and two FA Cups before leaving by “mutual consent” in 2007.He replaces ‘interim-manager’ Rafael Benitez, who left the club at the end of the season after guiding the Blues to a third place finish and Europa League glory.last_img read more

Winston, No. 11 Florida State drub Pitt 41-13

first_imgFlorida State running back James Wilder (32) tumbles over Pittsburgh linebacker Anthony Gonzalez (28) as linebacker Todd Thomas (8) pursues in the second quarter of the NCAA college football game, Monday, Sept. 2, 2013 in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) by Will GravesAP Sports WriterPITTSBURGH (AP) — One thing is for certain after Jameis Winston’s electric debut for No. 11 Florida State, his blocking could use some work.Other than that, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher is going to have a tough time critiquing his freshman quarterback’s performance in Monday night’s 41-13 romp over Pittsburgh.He’s also going to have a tough time tamping down the hype after Winston turned Pitt’s ACC debut into his own coming out party. Winston completed 25 of 27 passes for 356 yards and four touchdowns while adding another on the ground and sending a message he’s every bit as good as advertised.“It’s one ballgame, guys,” Fisher said. “He played one game, but he did a great job.”That’s putting it mildly. When Winston wasn’t picking apart the Panthers, he was running in between the tackles, converting the usual first-and-28 or running interference for running back Devonta Freeman. Winston found himself lead blocking for Freeman during a second quarter run but whiffed, a rare miscue on an otherwise sublime night.“I wasn’t surprised,” cornerback LaMarcus Joyner said. “I told him pregame you go against the best every day … and the way you rip us apart sometimes in scrimmages, we know you can do it against anyone in the nation.”You won’t find Pitt arguing. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston (5) smiles on the sidlines as time winds down in the fourth quarter against Pitt on Monday, Sept. 2, 2013 in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) The Panthers had been pointing to their ACC opener from the moment the program announced it was leaving the decaying Big East nearly two years ago. Instead, it served as the backdrop for a coming out party that will certainly fuel comparisons to Johnny Manziel’s unlikely rise to folk hero and Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M last fall.“I was certainly impressed with him,” Pitt coach Paul Chryst said. “He did a good job of making plays and extending plays.”Rashad Greene caught eight passes for 126 yards and a score and Nick O’Leary hauled in three touchdown passes for Florida State, but the night belonged to the athletic 6-foot-4, 227-pound kid from Hueytown, Ala., that certainly looked at home in front of a national audience in a stadium that also houses the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers.“It’s Monday Night Football,” Winston said. “We come in and play Monday Night Football in a pro stadium? I was so pumped for that.”Looked like it.Winston won the starting job during training camp, edging out Jacob Coker to become just the third freshman to start a season opener for the Seminoles.Don’t plan on him giving up the gig anytime soon.A star outfielder on the school baseball team, Winston is considered the latest in a line of two-sport threats at Florida State, a list that includes Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders and 1993 Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward.Ward, however, didn’t become a star until he finally cracked the starting lineup as a junior. Winston appears to already be there one game into his career. He connected on his first 11 passes, missing on his 12th when wide receiver Kenny Shaw couldn’t quite get his right foot all the way inbounds.“I was confident I got it in,” Shaw said with a laugh. “I’m used to the refs not being on our side.”Winston’s only other incompletion came while he escaped pressure late in the third quarter. By then the Seminoles were in command 31-13 after Winston spent three quarters serving up what the Seminoles hope is an appetizer of things to come as they battle Clemson for ACC supremacy.It’s a spot the Panthers hope to be in one day. Just not quite yet.Pitt quarterback Tom Savage passed for 201 yards and a touchdown for Pitt but also threw two interceptions.Or, as many interceptions as Winston had incompletions.Pitt’s defense, which ranked 17th in the country last season, appeared unsure on how to stop him. Wary of the speed of Florida State’s wide receivers, the Panthers gave Greene and company plenty of room to maneuver.Too much, as it turned out. Way too much. For all of Winston’s precision, often he was throwing to teammates who didn’t have anybody in dressed in blue within arm’s reach.“We never made them uncomfortable,” Chryst said. “Give them credit. We’ve got to tackle better, but they ran through our tackles.”And right into the conversation of national title contender behind a quarterback who will not be satisfied even after putting on a memorable show.“He’s very critical of himself,” Fisher said of Winston. “He’s very tough on himself. When you get on him he responds in a positive way like ‘I’m going to show you.’ That’s why he had success tonight.”___Follow Will Graves at www.twitter.com/WillGravesAPlast_img read more
