Why water quality matters to me

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Hot summer days recall memories of kids playing in the yard with sprinklers, watering the garden, drinking lemonade and fishing at the lake. Our country has not had to worry about water and seldom has there been a time in our history when safe water wasn’t abundant and inexpensive. Today we hear about pollution in the Chesapeake Bay, hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico, algae blooms in Ohio, water lawsuits in Iowa, and drought in California.Many are quick to place blame and sources claim that ‘this’ or ‘that’ is the problem. Please do not misunderstand me. The science is important. I’m proud of the checkoff investments our corn, soybean and wheat organizations have made in research and education, along with other stakeholders such as The Ohio State University and Ohio Farm Bureau.  But as I sit in my farm office on a rainy day, I admit that kind of work seems really far away from my farm. What should I be doing here, today, right now? After considering that question, I believe there are three thoughts that will guide my farm and hopefully yours now and in the future.First, water issues are not going away and it won’t always be about phosphorus and nitrogen. Experts have been warning for years that demand and cost for clean water will continue to increase. Water rights will be questioned and actions that affect its quality will be scrutinized. We need to take actions now that will protect our families and our farm’s future.Second, agriculture will be a big part of the solution. Every farmer I know is committed to not only growing a bountiful crop or raising the best livestock, but making our piece of the world a better place. While Ohio agriculture can’t be the only ones at the table in order to address this challenge, the stage is set for us to take the lead. Now we need to get it done.Start by getting your fertilizer certification license. Ask your fertilizer retailer to be 4R certified. Develop a nutrient management plan, test your soil and know your runoff risk. Pay close attention to the results coming out of the most current research and know what it means to your farm. Challenge yourself to adopt one new conservation practice on your farm this year.These simple first steps have helped reduce my farm’s environmental impact and improve its profitability.
Finally, remember the reason we do this. Getting caught up in all the negativity is easy. The focus for me on my farm is to remember that my motivation for growing healthy food AND protecting the soil and water has not and will not change.This is why water quality matters to me.last_img read more

Trade unionist Yashwant Chavan dead

first_imgVeteran Communist leader and noted trade unionist Yashwant Chavan died at a private hospital in Pune on Tuesday following a brief illness. He was 97.Born in 1920, Chavan was one of the last Marxist luminaries to be active in the Indian Communist Party in its heyday in late 1930s and 40s. Firebrands leaders such as S.K. Limaye and Shripad Amrut Dange served as his ideological mentors.The son of a judge and a bright student, Chavan’s ideological convictions were fortified at 17 when Limaye came looking for volunteers in Kolhapur and Chavan eagerly signed on. By 1938, he had his first brush with trade unionism, addressing gate meetings during the 1938 textile strike led by Dange.However, there was a split within the CPI ranks in 1942 and Limaye’s group, which included Chavan, was expelled for opposing cooperation in the British war effort. Limaye’s group then founded Navjivan Sangathana in 1943 and Chavan played a leading role in its growth.In 1965, Chavan founded Lal Nishan Party after a major split within the Communist Party in 1964 owing to Sino-Soviet tensions. Chavan based the party on the doctrines of Vladimir Lenin and the party’s trade union arm was called Sarva Shramik Sangh.Chavan recognised the need for unity within leftist ranks and he willingly dissolved his Kapda Kamgar Sangh and merged it with influential trade unionist Datta Samant’s union in the 1980s. History came full circle when Lal Nishan Party merged with the CPI in August 2017, the centenary of the Russian revolution.The last rites will be conducted at Dadar’s Shivaji Park in Mumbai. He is survived by his son Madhav Chavan, founder of NGO Pratham.last_img read more

BJP leader Mukul Roy appears before CBI in Narada sting video case

first_imgBJP leader Mukul Roy on Saturday appeared before the CBI in the Narada sting video case. Mr. Roy arrived at the agency office at Nizam Palace at around 2.15 p.m. The agency had issued summons to him after they made the first arrest in the Narada case by taking into custody IPS officer S.M.H. Mirza on Thursday. The agency had asked Mr. Roy to appear before it on Friday, which he had declined, citing political preoccupations. The CBI is probing the Narada video tapes in which several Trinamool Congress leaders were purportedly seen accepting cash on camera. The videos, shot in 2014 and made public ahead of the 2016 Assembly elections in West Bengal, showed senior Trinamool leaders accepting bundles of cash from journalist Mathew Samuels, who posed as a representative of a fictitious company, Impex Infrastructure. In March 2017, a Division Bench of the Calcutta High Court ordered the CBI to take over the Narada case. While Mr. Roy, an influential Trinamool leader then, is not seen accepting any cash in the purported videos, he can be heard saying, “You talk to Mirza”. Sources in the CBI said Mr. Roy will be questioned in the presence of Mr. Mirza, who has been granted CBI custody till September 30 by a city court.last_img read more

We have no issues with Sourav Ganguly’s position at Delhi Capitals: KKR CEO Venky Mysore

first_imgSourav Ganguly’s dual role of Cricket Association of Bengal president and Delhi Capitals advisor may have drawn criticism but Kolkata Knight Riders “have no issues at all”, team CEO Venky Mysore has said.Facing conflict of interest charges, the CAB chief will be a ‘visitor’ and may be seen sitting in the Delhi Capitals dugout when they face home side Kolkata Knight Riders in their return leg IPL clash in Kolkata on Friday.With Delhi Capitals boasting a world-class pace attack spearheaded by 23-year-old South African Kagiso Rabada, a few insiders at CAB have claimed that its president Ganguly may have a ‘say’ in the pitch, which could assist pacers. But KKR are not wary.”He is a thorough professional. He knows how to do his duties well. He’s fully supportive of what we are doing. We have no issues at all,” Mysore told PTI.The KKR CEO also spoke highly of their skipper Dinesh Karthik, and said he should make it to the World Cup squad, which will be announced Monday.”I can’t imagine a World Cup squad without him. The role he plays is such a difficult one and as a keeper as well. The attitude he brings in to the team is amazing,” Mysore said.Their top run-getter in 2018, Karthik has not been among runs this time around with just 91 from five innings at an average of 22.75, but Mysore said his focus is KKR at the moment.”For him, I know, the focus is KKR. We are taking one game at a time, win that game and get into the playoffs and be in contention. That’s his focus. I don’t think he will be thinking about the World Cup selection at the moment. I don’t think there’s any added pressure on him at all.advertisement”He’s been playing cricket — for India — for a long time. He’s played under most difficult pressure situations and still come winning. I am sure he will continue to contribute on that fashion. There is only 15 people who can go to the World Cup.”The 2012 and 2014 champions are yet to win under Karthik’s captaincy but Mysore said they have been consistent.”We were a bit unlucky with injuries. We needed to bolster our back-up and increase the size of the squad. We worked very hard this time in this auctions.”Winning championship is very difficult. There are teams who have still not won it. It does not mean they are not aiming to win it. Forget about championships, we have the best ratio,” he said, pointing at their top-four finishes from 2016 to 2018.”It shows that we have been always consistent. Last year we were a few balls away from winning the final. Had we made the final, who knows… It happened in the previous years as well. I’m very happy with the consistency.
