first_imgWhether protecting watermelons from the scalding summer sun or helping plants produce bigger fruit, maintaining healthy vines is a top priority for Georgia growers, especially when farm workers continuously pick from the same fruit bed.“There are multiple reasons that watermelon farmers think about vine protection. Healthy vines supply more energy and photosynthate to fruit,” said University of Georgia Cooperative Extension vegetable specialist Tim Coolong.Protecting watermelon vines also increases the length of harvests. Instead of picking two or more times in a season, a farmer may pick four times in the same field, which increases yields and profits, Coolong said.Vines also help control sunburn. If vines aren’t strong when temperatures are at their highest during the harvest season, they aren’t able to protect the watermelon fruit from being exposed, which leads to sunburn damage.Coolong stresses that the best way to protect vines is to turn them back in drive rows. Watermelon fields are set up in several groups of five or six beds that are divided by larger drive rows, which make the vines accessible by farm equipment. Drive rows allow the grower to spray vines and enable harvest wagons or buses to get into the field without running over most vines. Vines in the rows located next to the drive row may grow into the road, however, which makes them vulnerable to being run over.“For some of our larger growers, it can be prohibitively expensive to turn vines by hand, but most of our medium-sized growers have their crews go into the fields and turn the vines in those drive rows so they’re not running over them,” Coolong said. “Also, if (the plant) sets fruit in those drive rows and you run them over, and you have a drive row every fifth or sixth row, you’re talking maybe 10 percent of your fruit that could potentially be damaged.”In Coolong’s research trials on the UGA Tifton Campus, watermelon vines are turned back once a week for a month or more near harvest.“It really helped with the quality of our harvest on that third picking. Where we used to have a lot of small fruit that may not be worth picking, now we’re still maintaining size through that third pick,” he said.Coolong also stresses the importance of workers not trampling vines when they walk through a field.“As a grower, your workers are trying to move through the field as fast as they can to be as efficient and as productive as they can. That doesn’t necessarily go hand in hand with maintaining vine quality, so it’s a challenge to not beat up the vines, but get through the fields in a quick fashion,” Coolong said.The watermelon market in Georgia starts in early June and usually concludes a week after July 4. Georgia watermelon was worth more than $124.5 million in 2015, according to the Georgia Farm Gate Value Report, published by the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development.last_img read more

first_imgNewsRegional Guyanese death row inmate stages hunger strike again by: – May 29, 2012 Share Sharing is caring! Tweet Sharecenter_img Share 39 Views   no discussions Death row inmate Ganga Deolall resorts again to hunger strike to protest his conditions.GEORGETOWN, Guyana– Three years after staging a hunger strike in protest against alleged threats by his jailors to poison him, death row inmate Ganga Deolall is off food again.This time, Deolall has reportedly taken the action in protest over the lack of proper medical attention he is receiving from personnel at the penal institution.According to local media, his relatives are calling on the relevant authorities to investigate what they claim is the unfair treatment being meted out to the diabetic inmate.Deolall, 48, has been serving out a death sentence for the 1993 murder of 29-year-old Yvette Lall, whose mutilated body trussed to a crankshaft and slab of concrete was found at La Grange, West Bank.Relatives of Deolall have reportedly stated that the inmate has been refusing meals for the past four days to force authorities to provide him with diabetes medication which he needs but is not being given. There is also a charge from the family that since being diagnosed with the chronic illness during his incarceration, he is supposed to be getting special foods and lots of cranberry juice, but these provisions were not being looked after; nor is Deolall always allowed to make his scheduled clinic visits.It is also alleged that on May 16, Deolall awoke to find the left side of his body numb and despite reportedly being assured by the prison medic that he would be allowed to visit the doctor, but that did not occur that day nor the following day when the inmate reportedly requested for a second time to go to the doctor. This has been identified as the event that pushed the prisoner to go back on hunger strike.Director of Prisons Dale Erskine has reportedly stated that he was unaware of the hunger strike, but would launch an investigation into the matter.This stand-off between the convicted murderer and the Guyana penal system comes just days after damning reports circulated in the Guyana media of the scathing criticisms that the State Department of the United States has made of human rights injustices in Guyanese prisons.According to the recently released 2011 report on Human Rights Practices by the State Department, the most serious human rights abuses in Guyana involved complaints of mistreatment of suspects and detainees by security forces, unlawful killings by police, and poor prison and jail conditions.Caribbean 360 Newslast_img read more


first_img The Spaniard has developed a good understanding with the 29-goal striker and provided another assist for the Barclays Premier League’s leading scorer against Tottenham on Sunday. Enrique sees similarities with the bond he struck with another Uruguayan, Diego Forlan, when the two played together at Villarreal. And he likened Suarez’s influence on Liverpool with that of Messi’s for Barcelona, saying: “It’s like at Barcelona – the first player they look for when the game is in a bad situation is Messi because you know he can do something. Luis is the same – I look for him because I know he can do something different and we understand each other.” Liverpool defender Jose Enrique believes striker Luis Suarez performs the same role for the Reds as Lionel Messi does for Barcelona in being the go-to guy in times of trouble. He added: “If you are good players you understand each other. When I was at Villarreal with Forlan I linked up really well with him as well. “In the game all the time the first person I look for is him (Suarez) and he always makes a movement and I try to put the ball there and he does the rest. It is really easy to understand with him. He is our best player and he can do something from nothing.” The victory over Spurs was seen as something of a watershed moment in terms of the side overcoming a perceived mental block in regards to recovering losing positions. Their 3-2 win over their third-placed opponents was only the second time this season Brendan Rodgers’ team had come from behind to win in a league game, and when Spurs took a 2-1 lead at Anfield Enrique admits their previous poor record had him thinking a victory was unlikely. “In the first half they killed us a little bit because they scored in the last minute,” he said. “It was a little bit bad at that point but the manager said some words in the dressing room to lift us. “They scored again in the second half and, to be honest, I didn’t think we would win the game. “But the team worked very hard and this is the important thing because when the team stick together you can see the results and the character from the team was really good.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
