Patience for planting 🔊

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Joel PenhorwoodThe 2019 planting season continues to be an aggravating one for Ohio growers, though there’s still plenty of time for a good crop ahead, says DEKALB Asgrow Technical Agronomist Roy Ulrich.Ulrich spoke Thursday to a group of Union County farmers, hosted by Yoder Ag Services, answering questions and highlighting timely agronomic issues.“No really big reasons to change anything as far as products or practices until after we get out past Memorial Day. Once we get toward the end of the month, then we can make some changes, but right now just stay the course. Whatever plan you had is still the best plan to put in place,” said Ulrich.He pointed out how growing degree day requirements for corn actually go down as the planting season rolls along due to corn’s unique adaptation abilities. Soybeans though do require a different tailoring as the planting date gets later, the reason he recommends upping populations by 10,000 per acre for each week after Memorial Day.Overall, he said don’t be too eager to get out there as a lot of damage can be done in soggy soils.“If you get out there too early and stuff’s too wet, you can get some really bad sidewall or tillage compaction. There’s no way too really alleviate that after we’ve already done the trip. You need to be patient. Make sure field conditions are fit, because the worst thing you can do is get out there too early and then you’re praying for it to be a wet season and to stay wet,” he said. “Patience is hard this time of year, but patience is what we all need to have.”Ulrich also detailed concerns about higher populations of Black Cutworm and Armyworm.

That year I planted all my corn and beans in about the first 10 days of June and by golly we had a lot of sunshine and warm weather in the growing season and we had delayed frost in the fall. It was actually a tremendous year – one of my better years of farming in my 40-some years of farming, so you really can’t discount the fact that things can be made up in time with the right growing degree days and things like that. Again, patience. Let’s not mud it in and wish we had done something different before.”More from Fred Yoder in the audio below.

But that’s the last thing you’ll get when speaking with Craig Wortmann. He’s a very sharp sales professional who trains business people how to use the opportunities that sales provides to care for people in a way that serves their needs best. In that, he has come to see that the power of listening and telling stories are two of the most effective ways to do that. On this episode you’re going to hear how Craig has come to those conclusions and how you can learn to use both more effectively in your sales career.How the power of story can increase your sales success, on this episodeClick To TweetIf you’re going to be successful in sales, you need these three things.Through his experiences as a sales professional and as a professor in a prestigious business school, Craig Wortmann has discovered that there are three primary things that salespeople need to be equipped for success: Knowledge, skill, and discipline. Too often the focus is on the knowledge with too little emphasis on skill and the discipline it takes to implement it effectively. Craig unpacks this powerful observation in this chat with Anthony, revealing how you can apply all three to achieve greater success in your sales career.Most things that lead to success are not that hard, we simply don’t do them.Craig Wortmann doesn’t think that success is really all that difficult to achieve because the things that bring success have been demonstrated over and over. The problem is not typically a lack of knowledge, it’s a lack of action. On this episode Craig chats with Anthony about the ways he challenges his students to implement the things they learn and to do so consistently. He believes (and has seen) that consistency in the little things that bring success have massive repercussions on your outcomes. Find out more on this episode.Many things that bring success are not hard, we just don’t do them ~ Craig WortmannClick To TweetThe pause after a prospect’s response is invaluable.One of the important aspects of a sales professional’s personality is the ability to talk. It’s a good thing, but not always the best thing in every situation. For example, when a question has been asked and the prospect answers, it’s imperative that sales pros learn to pause before breaking the silence. In that pause most of the time the prospect will begin to speak again, revealing even more information about their need that would not have been uncovered otherwise. Craig Wortmann talks about the power of the pause and how you can learn to use it to meet your prospect’s needs more effectively, on this episode.You’ll be more successful in sales as you learn to be more human.When Craig Wortmann says that salespeople need to learn how to be “more human,” he means that we need to think less like a salesperson and more like a feeling, caring human being. The basis of all sales is providing solutions to the very real needs and problems of customers. Compassion and care have to be at the root of that if we are going to build the trust needed in order to provide those solutions effectively and consistently. Craig advises that sales professionals stop thinking about “getting the sale” and start thinking about “caring for the person.” The difference that little shift will make is monumental.

Facebook mistakenly deleted Mark Zuckerbergs old posts

first_imgA 3D plastic representation of the Facebook logo is seen in this photo illustration May 13, 2015.Reuters file [Representational Image]In a bizarre incident, social networking giant Facebook has said that it “mistakenly deleted” CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s old posts, some of them dating back to 2007 and 2008.A spokesperson from the company reportedly said many of Zuckerberg’s old posts about Facebook can still be found on the company’s blog and in its newsroom.”A few years ago some of Mark’s posts were mistakenly deleted due to technical errors. The work required to restore them would have been extensive and not guaranteed to be successful so we didn’t do it,” CNET quoted a Facebook spokesperson as saying on Friday.The spokesperson added that they didn’t know how many total posts were deleted.The total number of vanished posts could be significantly higher, as the very nature of the issue makes it extremely difficult to make a full accounting of what exactly has gone missing over the years.”These disappearances, along with other changes Facebook has made to how it saves its archive of announcements and blog posts, make it much harder to parse the social network’s historical record.”This makes it far more difficult to hold the company, and Zuckerberg himself, accountable to past statements — particularly during a period of intense scrutiny of the company in the wake of a string of scandals,” the Business Insider said.last_img read more

Classy ton not enough

first_imgRohit Sharma’s rollicking 150-run knock went in vain as South Africa pulled off a thrilling five-run victory in the first cricket One-dayer against India to continue their winning run here on Sunday. Chasing a record 304 at the Green Park, the Indians fell agonisingly short of the target in the last over, giving the visitors a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. With India needing 22 off the last two overs, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni failed to finish the job after Rohit (150 runs off 133 balls) got out in the 47th over. The script went horribly wrong after Rohit’s departure as India crumbled under pressure to end at 298 for seven.last_img
