Cantaloupes and cotton might seem like an odd couple but they’re actually proving to be a perfect pair.Planting the two together is proving to reduce planting time and costs while generating the same, if not more, profit for some Georgia farmers. Tift County Extension Coordinator Brian Tankersley has been studying the planting method, called intercropping, since 2010 and has seen positive results in some of his farmers’ fields. He has also found that management and yields from intercropping canteloupes and watermelons with cotton are comparable to planting the melons alone.William Dillard, who farms in Excelsior, approached Tankersley about planting cantaloupe and cotton in the same field after seeing the process in another farmer’s field. Prep once, harvest twice“You prep your land one time for the melons. All you’re doing is going in and seeding so you don’t have as much cost as far as re-prepping your land,” Dillard said. Intercropping also saves valuable time during the growing season. “Once you get through with the melons, it’s very hard to get a second crop and get it to where you can get it to grow before frost. This way you’re able to get it planted in a timely manner,” he said.One of Dillard’s intercropped fields produced 1,200 pounds of cotton without affecting the cantaloupe yields and the other produced 800 pounds of cotton without affecting the melon yield. “The difference was he ran out of water in the cotton crop on that second field,” Tankersley said.In 2011, five growers participated in an evaluation study led by Tankersley. The study consisted of 12 fields, totaling 385 acres. The farmers intercropped 1,000 acres, but only collected data on 385. The 385 acres yielded between 840 to 1,579 pounds an acre with an average of 1,216 pounds, or about two and half bales of cotton per acre. Georgia farmers produce an average of about 90 to 950 pounds an acre when cotton is grown alone.Fertilizer goes fartherIntercropping allows farmers to make better use of what could be limited resources, Tankersley said. Cotton fertilizer costs are reduced because the crop shares the same fertile soil used earlier in the season by cantaloupes or watermelons. The young cotton plants and the melon crop also share the same irrigation systems, so the cost of having to irrigate a second field is eliminated. Also, because the land is already tilled for the melon crop, land preparation costs for the cotton are eliminated.Though intercropping has proven to be beneficial, it is not recommended for every farmer. For those who have limited water supplies, too little irrigation on the intercropped field will have adverse effects. Also, intercropping won’t work on the late cucurbit crops that some farmers plant with plans to harvest watermelons in late July. That’s too long to hold back cotton crops, Tankersley said. Look at market first before intercroppingFarmers should also consider the market. Grain sorghum is sometimes planted after cantaloupes so farmers must determine how the grain and cotton prices compare. Heavy weed pressure is another concern. According to the study, in 2012, 75 percent of fields had some weed pulling following the harvest of cucurbit crops.“It’s hard to fight those weeds for that long of a period of time,” Tankersley said.He cautions farmers not to do anything that would potentially harm their cantaloupes and watermelons, especially considering the expense that goes into growing both.“The primary crop is the cantaloupes and watermelons,” Tankersley said. “This is where they have to spend so much money. You don’t want to jeopardize your primary crop trying to grow the secondary crop.” Many farmers spend about $2,000 an acre to plant the melons and take them all the way to harvest. Try it small-scale firstTankersley recommends farmers who are interested in intercropping move forward cautiously and try it on a limited number of acres first. “I tell people, don’t grow watermelons and cantaloupes just to plant cotton in it,” he said. “Don’t do that because you can lose a lot of money, and we’ve got enough watermelons and cantaloupes being grown. We don’t want to flood the market with melons.”

By Dialogo March 30, 2010 Big Cruyff: With you we cannot compare,,, neither pele, di stefano, beckenbauer ,etc.. The recently designated honorary president of the Barcelona soccer team, Dutchman Johan Cruyff, said Monday in his weekly column in the daily El Periódico that the position is “an honor” and affirmed that the comparison between Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona is “absurd.” The former player and former coach of the Catalan team said that “it’s a source of pride and a great satisfaction to be an honorary president of the Barça,” and after emphasizing that “it’s an honorary position,” warned “that no one should expect to see me intervening in signing this or that player.” Upon referring to other honorary presidents, Cruyff said that “to be together with (Alfredo) Di Stéfano, (Bobby) Charlton, and (Frank) Beckenbauer is to be in the company of very few people, but of very high quality.” Cruyff also referred to the “absurd” comparison between the Argentines Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona. “If the comparison Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo already seems wrong to me — while they’re both very good, they’re two entirely different soccer players — the Messi-Maradona comparison is absurd,” the Dutchman emphasized. “Beyond the fact that comparisons are always odious, how are we going to say for sure that one is better or worse? They’re not even from the same epoch or the same soccer,” he affirmed. “One has already concluded his career. The other, by his age, has a long time still to play. Maradona amazed many people, and it was a pleasure to watch him play. Now, with Messi, everyone, without exception, feels proud to have him in soccer,” he added. “Maradona was a phenomenon and did incredible things. Messi is the same now. Enjoy him and leave him in peace, because comparisons only cause division,” Cruyff said. In addition, he advised, “people should enjoy him, and even more importantly, kids should imitate him or try to copy him. They’ll pick up one or another good move,” he concluded.

Mark McWatters told federally-insured credit unions in a letter this week that compliance with the CFPB’s prepaid accounts rule will begin on April 1, 2018, in light of the bureau’s recent delay of the rule’s effective compliance date.McWatters, in NCUA Letter to Credit Unions 17-CU-03, said institutions that issue prepaid financial products covered under the rule must still submit prepaid account agreements to the CFPB beginning Oct. 1, 2018.The CFPB last week finalized its proposed six-month delay for its prepaid rule.The prepaid rule creates a host of new requirements for prepaid accounts under Regulations E and Z. The rule was finalized in October 2016, originally leaving credit unions only a year to prepare. NAFCU had urged the bureau to both rescind the rule and reevaluate its economic impact on small financial institutions; or to delay the rule 18 months instead of six. 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

By Larry Lowrey Jr.SALINA, Kan. (July 18) – Starting from outside the fifth row, winning the M & H Motors IMCA Northern SportMod main event Friday at Salina Speedway was the furthest thing from Daniel Gottschalk’s mind.A strong finish would have made him happy but sometimes being ‘just’ happy isn’t good enough. After posting the win one week ago, Gottschalk carried some momentum heading into the feature.Kamren Gruber posted the early lead during the main event but as usual the pack of cars that started in the middle half of the field were marching to the front. Gottschalk was on fire as he blew past the competition. One by one he worked his way into position for the top spot. Gottschalk took over the top spot and kept his hot streak alive picking up his second straight win and third of the season.In the Belleville Motorsports IMCA Modified division, a former champion has caught fire at the right time. It was just one week ago that Corey Lagroon found victory lane at Salina. Hovering around the top five in points, it wasn’t a bad time to get his first win. This week it wasn’t a bad time to pick up his second straight win.Lagroon didn’t take long to get to the front after starting in the third row. Mike Petersilie drove to a second place finish and in doing so took over the lead in the tight point battle. The night shaped up to be another strong battle in the Budweiser IMCA Hobby Stock ranks.Following a mid-race restart it didn’t take long for John Fose to take the lead and his second local win of the season.
