Peace farmers dealing with aftermath of two heavy rainfall events

first_img“The crops are basically all over the place right now,” she said. “Some earlier-seeded crops can handle the moisture better and look fairly good – however, some of the later-seeded stuff is really suffering. You have two fields side-by-side, where the only difference is basically the seeding date, and one looks okay and the other looks terrible.”She said, generally, her wheat and canola got off to an early start and are okay, but her barley fields were seeded later and much of the crop has started to turn yellow due to being waterlogged.”The immediate concern is the diseases that can develop when conditions persist that way they are now,” she added.Critcher said she sprayed most of her fields in between the two rainfall events, though they had to abandon one field that was too wet. However, she said she heard other farmers did have to forgo spraying entirely, and they will likely experience yield loss due to competition from weeds.She added the washouts of roads and culverts would have allowed water to seep into fields and submerge them in some cases, and prevented access to fields altogether in other instances. She said the flooding may pose dangers during harvesting as well.Advertisement “When it gets this wet, it takes very little rain to make it too wet again, so we may be in a situation where we will end up rutting-up the fields and have tough harvest,” he said, adding that some crops might not mature fast enough to get them off the fields before the first frost hits.Berge said he is fortunate he doesn’t have a lot of low spots in his fields where water could pool, but hesuspects to the east of him in the Bonanza area of Alberta that has many low-lying areas and heavy clay soils, farmers are probably having a tougher time.Irmi Critcher, who farms in the Tower Lake area south of Taylor and is also a director of BCGPA, said the latest deluge only added to the problems she was dealing with after the first heavy rainfall event in late June.Advertisement “It’s got to start drying up here pretty soon are we’re going to be in trouble,” said Garnet Berge, a farmer in Rolla and director with the BC Grain Producers Association.He said his crops generally have actually handled the rain fairly well, but the growth in some areas of his fields has been delayed because of the heavy rains.”If it dries up, the crop will come back up again, but so far every time it tries it gets rained on again,” he said. “It potentially could be a week later (maturing) than it would have been if the weather was good. It’s really going to depend on what happens with the weather from now until harvest.”- Advertisement -Berge added another difficulty is not being able to get out to the fields to spray for weeds or add nutrients. He said he also has things to do around his yard to get ready for harvest in the late summer/early fall, but that has been delayed because the ground is too wet.”It just compresses everything and makes it tougher to do. We’re just losing time now we could have used to have stuff ready to go.”He said if the weather improves, he could be looking at a good crop this year, but if it continues to rain as it has all this week, it will cause all kinds of problems.Advertisementcenter_img “In the fields you have big gouges and groves being cut by water which are in the crop right now, so when you’re harvesting, you really have to watch out for that so you don’t hit them, because you could do serious damage to your equipment,” said Critcher.Still, she said if the weather cooperates, farmers could see above-average yields in some areas of their fields will help make up for losses in others.”Crops – if we ever do get some warm weather – will do a tremendous amount of growing and absorbing moisture. That could translate into some of the damage done being compensated for.”Farmers are always at the whims of Mother Nature, but the last two seasons in the Peace have been especially difficult with severe drought last year and heavy rains this year. Critcher said farmers haven’t been fully compensated for last year’s losses and are awaiting claims under the federal/provincial AgriStability program to be processed, adding they could be well into this year’s harvest before they see any payments. She said the BCGPA has all but given up pursuing relief under the AgriRecovery program, though she can’t understand why the region didn’t qualify when parts of Alberta and Saskatchewan received compensation following extreme weather events.”We are feeling the full financial impact of last year’s drought now,” said Critcher. “We didn’t have the inventory to sell, so we have no cash flow at this point because our crop yields were down so much, so we didn’t really feel it last fall, but we felt it coming into this spring and summer as all these input costs were coming due.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Zidane, Valverde condemn violence after policeman killed in Bilbao trouble

first_imgNine people were arrested, including three Russians and a Pole, during clashes outside San Mames in which a police officer died of a heart attack.The incident also raised fears over hooliganism at this summer’s World Cup which will be hosted by Russia.“Football was invented to be enjoyed, for people to experience happiness or suffer with their teams,” said Barcelona coach Valverde, formerly in charge in Bilbao.“But others use football as an excuse for other things, because football is seen by so many. It sullies football but it is not a problem for football, it is a wider problem. And of course we absolutely condemn that.”FIFA said it “deeply regrets” the clashes in Bilbao but had “complete trust” in Russia’s ability to ensure a safe World Cup — despite this being just the latest incident of hooligan violence involving Russians.A minute’s silence will be held before all games in Spain’s top two divisions this weekend in memory of the dead policeman.“La Liga reiterates its strongest condemnation of the violence and continues to work to eradicate it from football,” La Liga said in a statement.Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy earlier offered his condolences for the death of the 51-year-old Basque police officer as he also “strongly condemned” the violence in the northern Spanish city.The officer was one of over 500 deployed to San Mames for the high-risk Europa League last-32 tie.He “suddenly felt ill during the serious incidents… despite being taken quickly to hospital, he suffered cardiac arrest,” the Basque government’s security department said in a statement, adding his death was not “directly” linked to an injury he suffered in the clashes.The trouble began as Spartak ‘ultras’ arrived at the stadium.Some lit and threw smoke bombs and bins towards Athletic supporters, before police charged them.Police detained five Spaniards, three Russians and a Polish man over the clashes, a spokesperson for the Basque security department said. They face charges of causing public disorder, rioting and disrespect for authority.Five other police officers were injured, none of them seriously, and treated on the scene, the spokesperson added.There was concern ahead of the match because of the reported presence of hardcore Russian fans in Bilbao, and police seized knives, bags full of rocks and brass knuckles from supporters of the two teams, the Basque security department said.Earlier Thursday, German police arrested a Russian suspected of the “attempted murder” of a British football fan during the European Championship in France two years ago. He was detained at Munich airport as he was trying to travel to Bilbao to attend the match, according to German police.But a spokesman for Russia’s embassy in Germany, Denis Mikerine, “strongly protested” the arrest on Facebook, saying it was a “possible pretext” to “politicise the theme of football hooliganism before the 2018 World Cup in Russia”.Russian authorities will be on high alert this summer for the World Cup after Russian fans were involved in pitched battles with England supporters in Marseille during Euro 2016.Spartak won Thursday’s match 2-1, but Athletic went through 4-3 on aggregate.They will face Marseille in the next round in March, but Spanish rivals Atletico Madrid have been drawn against another Russian club in Lokomotiv Moscow.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Police made nine arrests during violence before Thursday’s Europa League match between Athletic Bilbao and Spartak Moscow in which a Spanish police officer died of a heart attack © AFP / ANDER GILLENEAMadrid, Spain, Feb 23 – Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane and his Barcelona counterpart Ernesto Valverde on Friday strongly condemned the violence which led to a police officer dying before a Europa League game in Spain between Athletic Bilbao and Spartak Moscow.“Our thoughts are with his family. I don’t like violence, and it is very hard to understand when these things happen. Let’s hope these things don’t happen again in a football stadium,” said Zidane of the incidents which took place prior to Thursday evening’s match.last_img read more

Armenian Genocide resolution vote delayed

first_imgWASHINGTON – A resolution declaring the massacres of Armenians by Ottoman Turks a genocide will not be put to a House vote this year after an international furor forced the bill’s Southern California supporters to seek a delay. In a letter Thursday to House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi, the bill’s lead sponsor, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Pasadena, asked her to postpone a vote, possibly until 2008. “We want to make sure that when we take up the resolution that we have the votes to succeed,” Schiff said. “I think we will. I think it’s only a question of timing.” Vicken Papazian, spokesman for the Armenian National Committee in Glendale, said he respects the lawmakers’ strategy decisions and remains confident it will come to a vote. “The Armenian community is in no way discouraged,” Papazian said. “Armenians are a resilient people.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The resolution at one time had a record number of backers. Support eroded rapidly, however, after a key committee approved it last month. With Pelosi supporting the bill, its arrival on the House floor became, for the first time in decades, a likely scenario. Turkey recalled its ambassador in protest, and threatened to block vital supply routes to Iraq if the bill passed. About 70 percent of air cargo headed to Iraq goes through Turkey. Meanwhile, tensions raged between the U.S. and Turkey over northern Iraq, where Kurdish insurgents had staged several attacks on Turkish troops. Turkey had held back from invading in response to appeals from the Bush administration. But last week the Turkish parliament overwhelmingly granted the government permission to invade. “It’s pretty clear that they stumbled into a hornet’s nest greater than Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi probably ever anticipated,” said congressional scholar Norman Ornstein. “Clearly, the support was slipping away,” added Bulent Aliriza, director of the Turkey Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington, D.C., think tank. But, he added, “I don’t think the issue is going to go away.” Schiff said he doesn’t think it will either. He contended the measure is likely to regain support once the immediate crisis in Northern Iraq is under control. Both he and Papazian dismissed the possibility that Congress will grow weary of the issue and the battles it inevitably provokes between lawmakers and the administration. “Genocide never loses its relevancy,” Papazian said. The resolution declares that 1.5 million Armenians were killed, forcefully deported and displaced between 1915 and 1923 in a systematic genocide. Turks acknowledge committing atrocities against Armenians, but object to the word “genocide.” They say Armenians were killed when they joined forces with French and Russians to attack Turks and attempt to take control of Ottoman lands. More than 20 other countries have recognized the massacres of Armenians as genocide. Meanwhile, Republicans who in past years blocked consideration of the resolution, on Thursday ridiculed Pelosi for agreeing to delay it. lisa.friedman@langnews.com (202) 662-8731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

HARPS BEAT LEAGUE LEADERS TO PUT THEMSELVES IN FOURTH PLACE

first_imgWhat a difference a few weeks make!Finn Harps were struggling to even get one positive result not so long ago.But tonight they convincingly beat league leaders Longford Town and climbed to fourth place in the league. The Ballybofey side were full value for their 3-1 win and are now just four points off the pacemakers.Longford took the lead after just fourteen minutes through Alan Kirby at what was a poorly-attended game at Flancare Park.But Harps buckled down but got no reward before the break.Longford lost their keeper Craig Hyland after he took down Paul Tracey on the edge of the area. From the resulting move, Tracey curled home the free kick to make it 1-1.Kirby continued to threaten for Longford but Harps kept their cool at the back.They were rewarded again in the 79th minutes when McBride nipped in to make it 2-1.Not even he yellow card for taking off his shirt to celebrate could ruin McBride’s night.It looked like it was going to stay that way until the final whistle but there was time for Harps to put even more gloss on the scoreline. Blain Curtis keeps his strength and composure as he beats Noel Haverty in a one on one to make it 3-1.Who said the league is over yet?Cmon the Harps!HARPS BEAT LEAGUE LEADERS TO PUT THEMSELVES IN FOURTH PLACE was last modified: April 15th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:finn harpsLongford Townlast_img read more
