first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Scott Metzger, Pickaway Co.We are pretty dry. After having 10.6 inches of rain in July and almost perfect conditions, we’ve turned off dry in August. You see a lot of crops on the clay knobs and drier ground getting stressed and starting to turn. We have had a couple of inches in August right her at the shop, but a mile south we’ve had about six-tenths in the last two weeks and around Frankfurt it is more like three-tenths. There is rain in the forecast and it would be appreciated.Our early corn is starting to black layer. I would say that within 10 days there will be some corn shelled in Pickaway County. Our stuff is still pretty green yet so it will ready to harvest around Farm Science Review. I thought I was seeing some N loss with corn firing up, but with the GDUs we’ve had it is time for that early corn to start turning. Our later planted corn is starting to dent. I could see us having all of the early corn shelled before we start beans.I am really surprised at the diseases that came in late. It is far enough along that I don’t think they will hurt anything but I have been surprised at the disease levels in some fields I’ve been walking. Other fields, though, are really pretty clean.We don’t have a bumper crop but we do have pretty good corn yields. In the early corn it seems like there is a lot of variability. You don’t see that in the later corn where there is more consistent girth and maybe less length. Overall I think we’ll be above average on the corn.I think the dry weather has taken the top end off the later beans. I have seen 50 to 60 and occasionally 70 pods per plant. We have some very tall beans and they are podded pretty decent, but tall beans usually scare me. They look pretty but don’t usually yield well. The double-crops are coming along. They would really benefit from a rain. They are in R3 and the potential is there. We need some rain and not an early frost.We’re getting the equipment, bins and grain dryer ready and I am guessing we’ll get to know the propane guy on a first-name basis this year.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more


first_imgzoom With the impending adjustment to the Elbe fairway, Germany’s Port of Hamburg is preparing for the future also with improved infrastructure and digitalization.“We must get to grips with Industry 4.0, with digitalization and how this will change supply chains. We must develop the port to enable it to play a prominent role,” Frank Horch, Hamburg’s Senator for Economics, Transport and Innovation, said.“We will improve the infrastructure, implement the fairway adjustments and secure good general conditions,” Horch added.Once the adjustment to the Elbe fairway is finalized, the port will be able to handle more containers and bulk cargo.“Terminals and other port facilities are well prepared for growth. Increased draft on the Elbe and simplification of manoeuvring by the construction of a passing zone on the Elbe downstream from Hamburg will facilitate more efficient use of hold capacities and crucially simplify passing for ultra-large vessels,” Ingo Egloff, HHM Executive Board colleague, added.In the last business year, the port saw a stable handling result comparable with the previous year.At 136.5 million tons, in 2017 seaborne cargo throughput in Hamburg, comprising general and bulk cargoes, was stable at a high level. A slight downturn occurred in handling of containerized general cargo at 8.8 million TEU, being one percent lower. At 44.7 million tons, the bulk cargo total was at the previous year’s level.In 2017 Hamburg received 102 calls by ULCVs in the size bracket 18,000 to 20,000+ TEU, a rise of 52.2 percent.Furthermore, Egloff informed that positive effects on the flow of imports via the Port of Hamburg are expected from the revamping of Import VAT agreed in the current coalition deal in Berlin.This would eliminate a long-standing disadvantage vis-à-vis the Netherlands, with importers in future able to deduct Import Tax immediately.In Germany Import Turnover Tax has so far been paid immediately and only later allow for in advance notification of Turnover Tax.last_img read more
