Sluggish soybean seed orders for 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The dicamba issues from 2017 continue to loom large for 2018 soybean seed orders. As training sessions have continued on the label changes and application requirements for the dicamba products in 2018, farmers have been waiting to make their soybean seed purchase decisions in what seems to be a generally sluggish soybean-ordering season.For those still holding off on making soybean orders because of unanswered dicamba questions, tight budgets, market uncertainty, or the tough agricultural economy, placing orders sooner is probably more beneficial than closer to the quickly approaching planting season.“Seed companies are packaging and treating what has been ordered. If you wait too long you may be limited on seed treatment options and your first choice of varieties may not be what you get. You may have to get something different or go up or down on maturity. We are starting to sell out of things. Plus you miss all of the early order discounts,” said Stuart Yensel, with Seed Consultants, Inc. “If you want bulk or Pro boxes you may not be able to get that with late orders. We have been delivering seed since October. There is still time but if you wait until right before planting season the traits, packaging, varieties, delivery times, and prices you get will be at the mercy of the seed company. There is a lot that goes into the cycle of producing seed and it is a process that takes time.”The changing soybean traits have created challenges for seed purchase decisions, but there have been many training sessions concerning dicamba and countless winter meetings to help sort out the details.“For months now there has been confusion about soybean technology, particularly with weed control,” said John Schartman with Pioneer. “Some of that is waning away now though as the growers are dialing into what they want. We have more technology now than what we have seen for soybeans and it adds complexity to the decision for soybeans this year. We have seen a little indecision this year, but not too much.”Interestingly, AgriGold offers only soybeans with dicamba resistance and sales have exceeded expectations for the seed company that only started selling soybeans for the 2017 growing season.“Because we are new to soybeans we don’t have much history with beans to compare, but we are not seeing that hesitation because we are above our projected sales for beans,” said Nick Brackman with AgriGold. “We only have one soybean platform: Roundup Ready 2 Xtend technology containing both dicamba and glyphosate herbicide tolerance, take it or leave it. We were nervous about going with soybeans but we have really adapted to it and this year’s sales have exceeded our expectations.”last_img read more

The Health of Caregivers for Children with Special Needs

first_imgIn many of our caregiving blog articles we discuss issues and concerns surrounding the topic of military caregiving and wounded warriors. However, the role of “military caregivers” could encompass not only those families caring for wounded service members, but military families caring for someone with special needs.There are approximately 5.9 million children in this country with severe disabilities, most of which are being cared for at home by their parents and families in an informal caregiving setting [1]. Studies also suggest that informal caregiving for a child with disabilities is associated with poor emotional and physical health in caregivers. Below are a few examples of how a parent’s physical and emotional well-being can be negatively impacted by the demands of caregiving.Negative Impacts on Caregiver HealthChronic Fatigue – Example: Providing long-term care for severely disabledBack and shoulder pain – Example: Regularly lifting childrenDirect injury – Example: Injury resulting from child’s occasional violent behaviorsEmotional distress – Example: Concerns about the future; finances; meeting the day-to-day needs of child, etc.In additional to the physical and emotional toll that caregiving places on special needs parents, the unpredictable and uncontrollable nature of parenting a child with disabilities can cause caregiver stress. Caregivers may feel a lack of control of day-to-day activities, such as frequent requests from schools to immediately retrieve the child because he or she is too ill to participate.Also some parents may feel uncertain about how to care for their other children in the home and provide the necessary attention, in addition to caring for the special needs child. Even in a recent study conducted by the University of Utah, researchers found parents were using their respite time to care for other family members [2].Caregivers of all stripes need to meet their own needs in order to effectively care for another person. This is especially important when providing care for young persons with developmental disabilities as they may be less able to compensate than their adult counterparts. A caregiver who does not take care of her/himself may find that they are eventually unable to take care of anyone.References[1] Perrin, J. (2002).
