Purdue Offering Workshops to Improve Farm Profitability

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Offering Workshops to Improve Farm Profitability Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 5, 2019 SHARE Purdue Offering Workshops to Improve Farm Profitability SHARE Purdue Offering Workshops to Improve Farm ProfitabilityOver the next several weeks Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture is offering farmers a chance to sharpen their crop marketing skills by learning more about strategies that you may not have previously attempted or even known much about. The Purdue Crop Marketing and Farm Finance Workshops, eight of them total around Indiana, will include a session to help those who have invested in their own grain storage earn a better return to those facilities.“So, the starting point there is to learn more about basis and particularly basis patterns in your part of the state,” says Jim Mintert, director of the Center. “and use the knowledge of those basis patterns as a way to forecast basis and really try and improve your return to storage by capturing the changes in basis that occur during the course of the storage season.”Purdue has a relatively new online basis tool that provides historical basis details for Indiana crop reporting districts. You can track basis movement over time with that tool. Mintert explains developing and using this knowledge can improve profitability.“You can look at the average basis level for a particular point in time in the year, for example maybe the last three years,” Mintert explained. “Some of the research we’ve done would suggest that is a pretty good forecasting tool and use that as a way to anticipate what the basis is going to do during that storage season and try and improve your returns. The research we’ve done suggests the returns could be significant and positive for many people, and that’s a way to improve your profitability. For some operations it might be the difference of going from a break-even situation to a profitable one, or if margins are tighter than that, maybe it’s the difference between not making any money at all and moving up to a break-even level. So, it’s enough to make a difference.”Michael Langemeier and Nathan Thompson from the center will join Mintert and they will offer suggestions on how to prepare for a meeting with your ag lender.Registration for the workshop is free, but you must preregister. Registration is available online at purdue.ag/workshop or you can register by calling 765-494-7004.The workshops are sponsored by Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture and Purdue Extension.Workshop dates and locations are:Feb. 7 at Huntington County Fairgrounds – 1 p.m., 631 E.

The money can be paid back in five years.“We are assuming an interest rate of 3 percent and that the loan would be tax exempt,” Thomas said. “The annual payment would be about $75,500 and the annual budget would be $99,500.”center_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day The streets that will resurfaced and the cost of each are Henderson Street, $26,031; Pine Street, $10,145; Nassau, $24,249; Airport Road, $104,241 that also includes the paving of the parking lot for city utilities, John Street, $11,329; Johnson Street, $37,542; Ann Street, $12,070; Gilmore Street, $18,259; Bowden Street, $36,609; Barr Circle, $23,663; and Hall Street, $26,554.Max Mobley of Polyengineering in Dothan addressed the council and residents of the Johnson Street area about the continuing issues caused by the inability of rainwater to flow along Mims Creek. The creek borders the properties along Johnson and Darby streets.Mobley said the creek comes under the jurisdiction of the Army Corps of Engineers and the Corps doesn’t allow for the channelization of streams.“If it were a drainage ditch, we could probably get a grant to correct the problem,” Mobley said. “But the banks of creek cannot be disturbed.” You Might Like Pet photo contest deadline extended to August 10 Nigel, a rescue pup, is Mr. July in the Humane Society of Pike County’s 2016 Pet Photo Calendar.

Future Flows Climate: an ensemble of 1-km climate change projections for hydrological application in Great Britain

first_imgThe dataset Future Flows Climate was developed as part of the project ”Future Flows and Groundwater Levels” to provide a consistent set of climate change projections for the whole of Great Britain at both space and time resolutions appropriate for hydrological applications, and to enable climate change uncertainty and climate variability to be accounted for in the assessment of their possible impacts on the environment. Future Flows Climate is derived from the Hadley Centre’s ensemble projection HadRM3-PPE that is part of the basis of UKCP09 and includes projections in available precipitation (water available to hydrological processes after snow and ice storages have been accounted for) and potential evapotranspiration. It corresponds to an 11-member ensemble of transient projections from January 1950 to December 2098, each a single realisation from a different variant of HadRM3. Data are provided on a 1-km grid over the HadRM3 land areas at a daily (available precipitation) and monthly (PE) time step as netCDF files. Because systematic biases in temperature and precipitation were found between HadRM3-PPE and gridded temperature and precipitation observations for the 1962–1991 period, a monthly bias correction procedure was undertaken, based on a linear correction for temperature and a quantile-mapping correction (using the gamma distribution) for precipitation followed by a spatial downscaling. Available precipitation was derived from the bias-corrected precipitation and temperature time series using a simple elevation-dependant snow-melt model. Potential evapotranspiration time series were calculated for each month using the FAO-56 Penman-Monteith equations and bias-corrected temperature, cloud cover, relative humidity and wind speed from HadRM3-PPE along with latitude of the grid and the day of the year. Future Flows Climate is freely available for non-commercial use under certain licensing conditions. It is the dataset used to generate Future Flows Hydrology, an ensemble of transient projections of daily river flow and monthly groundwater time series for representative river basins and boreholes in Great Britain.

High profile estate agency quits Rightmove to go ‘exclusive’ with Zoopla

first_imgHome » News » High profile estate agency quits Rightmove to go ‘exclusive’ with Zoopla previous nextProducts & ServicesHigh profile estate agency quits Rightmove to go ‘exclusive’ with ZooplaKristjan Byfield, co-founder of Base Property Specialists in London, has made the announcement after publishing a letter detailing his unhappiness with Rightmove.Nigel Lewis20th March 202001,078 Views A high-profile estate agency in London which is one of several industry names protesting about Rightmove’s recent offer of ‘deferred payments’ has quit the portal and is now listing exclusively with Zoopla.Kristjan Byfield, co-founder of Base Property Specialists, yesterday published an open letter calling on agents to choose portals that value their custom, launching a caustic attack on Rightmove for its treatment of his business – and the industry – over the years.Like other agents in recent days, Base Property Specialists has decided to serve notice on Rightmove and list just with its main rival, Zoopla, from 1st May onwards.“Listing exclusively with Zoopla was a no-brainer for me. Detailed research has shown the ever-rising value of Zoopla to our business,” he says.“Last year alone, Zoopla delivered more revenue than its nearest competitor for roughly half the cost.“As business owners, the return on investment we receive from every supplier is always a key consideration.  The fact is, Zoopla delivers us great quality applicants who convert into fantastic tenants.“Zoopla’s ascendency in the London rental market has been well documented and aligns well with our business ambitions. This is further enhanced by the stable of tech products on offer- many of which we use.”Andy Marshall, Chief Commercial Officer (left), Zoopla, says: “Base needs little introduction. It is a genuine force of influence in the industry and we have much respect for Kristjan and An, who lead the business.“It is results orientated, and our commitment to driving growth in listings, valuation and applicant leads is designed to support its business objectives in both the short and long term.”Read more about the ‘Rightmove revolt’. Base Property Andy Marshall Rightmove krystjan byfield Zoopla March 20, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
