Indiana Motorists Still Waiting for E-15

first_imgThe problem is nobody want to be the first to put in an E-15 pump said Leeck, “There are a lot of people who are considering the idea and monitoring what is happening our west and keeping their eye on the station around the corner to see if they take the plunge.” Monte Shaw, with the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association, told HAT that has been the pattern in his state, “Nobody wants to be first but they don’t want to be last either.” He said, typically, it is the independent dealers that are the first to start offering E-15 and then the chains have to follow. SHARE By Gary Truitt – Oct 6, 2013 Currently, almost all gasoline sold is blended with 10% ethanol. The extra 5% blend is safe for use in all cars newer than 2001 and, since ethanol is cheaper that oil, E-15 will actual lower the price of gas.    Leeck says it will be economics what will drive both dealer and consumer acceptance of E-15 in the end, “Consumers will see the lower price of E-15 and the economics will help on the dealer side because it will help stations to improve their bottom lines as well.” Indiana Motorists Still Waiting for E-15 Roz LeeckIt has been over a year since the EPA approved the blending of up to 15% ethanol into our nation’s fuel supply, but finding the fuel remains almost impossible. Nationwide there are 40 stations in 9 states that are selling E-15 to motorists, Indiana is not one of those states. “Right now, we have no stations offering E-15 in Indiana,” said Roz Leeck, Biofuels Director for the Indiana Corn Marketing Council.  SHARE Facebook Twitter The oil industry, afraid of losing market share to E-15, is running a smear campaign against E-15. Leeck says that has some consumers confused, “There are a lot of voices in the marketplace, and some consumers are confused about who to believe.” She said, as the fuel enters the Indiana marketplace, corn growers will work to help educate consumers about the benefits of E-15. Currently Indiana has 14 blender bumps that allow motorists to choose ethanol blends from E-10 up to E-85.

Bob Nielsen Honored with Prestigious Hovde Award

first_img nielsen-wins-hovde-awardDuring the Indiana Farm Bureau state convention last week, Indiana’s Corn Guy was honored for his decades of service to Indiana corn farmers. Bob Nielsen, Purdue Extension corn specialist, received the Frederick L. Hovde Award of Excellence in Educational Service to Rural Indiana. Purdue Dean of Agriculture Dr. Jay Akridge says this an important recognition and great honor.“It was an award that was originally created by Farm Bureau to help honor the legacy of President Hovde, and it is a very prestigious award for us in the college because it recognizes an outstanding faculty or staff member for their contributions to rural Indiana. That’s certainly a central focus of our work in Purdue agriculture and Purdue Extension, and the campus more broadly, and the individual who receives it has certainly made a difference for the people of the state.”Akridge told HAT even though Nielsen has never won the award, he is the epitome of a Hovde Award winner.“He’s just absolutely passionate about the crop that he works on, corn, and the people that grow it. They know him as the Corn Guy or Dr. Corn, and since 1982 he’s been the go to guy in Indiana and the eastern Corn Belt on anything related to corn. His work has embraced technology and he has certainly connected with our farmers through his website KingCorn and the Chat ‘n Chew Café. But what Bob loves best is being on the farm with farmers either in the field in the summer or in the combine talking to them about what they’re seeing, what the problems are and it’s that personal contact that really drives him.”Over the past 30 years Nielsen has delivered timely, significant, research-based crop management information on his websites, in educational programs and through one-on-one conversations with producers and crop advisers in fields, tractor cabs and farmhouse kitchens throughout the Midwest and across the globe. Known simply as the “Corn Guy,” Nielsen is widely recognized as the foremost expert on Indiana corn production, a key driver in the state’s $25-billion-a-year agricultural industry.“No one could be more deserving of this prestigious accolade,” added Jason Henderson, associate dean and director of Purdue Extension. “Through his innovative Extension programs and ongoing search for excellence, Bob has enhanced the lives of all Hoosiers.”Nielsen was instrumental in the development of the College of Agriculture’s nationally recognized Crop Diagnostic Training and Research Center. He has conducted more than 350 field-scale research trials to determine economically optimal nitrogen application and seeding rates for different types of soils and has helped promote the use of site-specific crop management tools.An energetic and entertaining speaker, Nielsen makes about 60 presentations each year, reaching a total audience of about 5,000 agribusiness professionals and consumers. He delivers his message in a plain spoken, direct style punctuated by colorful figures of speech such as “goose-drownder,” his term for a heavy rainstorm.“Bob’s number of speaking opportunities are limited only by the number of free days in his calendar, never by the lack of demand,” said Jim Camberato, Extension soil fertility and plant nutrition specialist and co-author with Nielsen of the annual report Nitrogen Management Guidelines for Corn in Indiana. “During the growing season Bob answers numerous phone calls and emails and makes several farm visits to help farmers and crop advisers identify the causes of crop production problems. These one-on-one encounters not only help the individual farmers but are also spread to neighbors via the crop adviser and word-of-mouth.”Hoosier farmers often find that working with Nielsen is a learning experience.“My first experience working with Bob was in 1996,” said Eric Aulbach, a Purdue graduate and grain producer in Blackford County. “I was two years out of college, still knowing everything, and I was asked to scout a field of poorly emerging corn. Quickly finding out that I knew much less than I thought, I called Bob and he came over to help determine what the problem was. His patience and thoroughness started a trust that led to future troubleshooting calls that always resulted in an increased trust of Bob’s ability and an educational outcome for me.”Colleagues say Nielsen’s top priority is making sure producers have the information they need to make smart crop management decisions. When the internet was in its infancy, he quickly recognized its potential as a communication tool.Nielsen launched the KingCorn and Chat ‘n Chew websites in 1995 and continues to update them regularly with new research, articles, photos, videos and other resources useful to all row crop producers. The sites generate more than 250,000 page views per year.“Bob is a great teacher of adults, whatever mode of communication is employed,” Camberato said. “Bob’s professional drive is to help people better themselves through knowledge so that he can make a difference in people’s lives.”The Hovde Award, sponsored by Indiana Farm Bureau Inc., was established in honor of Purdue’s seventh president, who served from 1946 to 1971. The award has been given annually since 1972.Winners receive a monetary prize and a plaque. A permanent display of award winners’ names is in the Agricultural Administration Building on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus.Source: Purdue News SHARE By Andy Eubank – Dec 14, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News Bob Nielsen Honored with Prestigious Hovde Award Facebook Twitter Previous articleUSDA Announces GIPSA Farmer Fair Practices RulesNext article2017 Outlook:  Higher Prices, Lower Yields Andy Eubank Bob Nielsen Honored with Prestigious Hovde Award Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

RSF delighted by release of three Spanish journalists held hostage in Syria

first_imgNews News Follow the news on Spain SpainEurope – Central Asia Armed conflictsDisappearancesJihadism Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Organisation “The moment we have awaited for nearly a year has finally arrived,” said Malén Aznárez, the president of RSF’s Spanish section. “We are finally able to express our happiness and relief at the release of Antonio Pampliega, José Manuel López and Angel Sastre, something we have been seeking since the day they disappeared.“We have lived in a state of constant anxiety ever since the abduction of these three journalists, who are all RSF members. It is impossible to describe the joy we feel. We will continue to offer them and their families our support and we are grateful for the confidence they have always shown towards RSF.”Pampliega, López and Sastre went missing in the northwestern Syrian city of Aleppo on 12 July 2015, shortly after crossing the Turkish border into Syria. The identity of their abductors was never officially confirmed but the Spanish media always said they were held by the Al-Nusra Front, which controls the area where they disappeared.During the ten months they were held hostage, they were moved six times by their abductors. They were kept together for the first three months but then Pampliega was separated from the other two.“It was wonderful to talk to him by phone,” Pampliega’s mother, María del Mar Rodríguez, told RSF. “He still had the same voice, his child’s voice, and he constantly apologized for what he made me go through.”She said the family had known that the three journalists were alive. “Everyone has really been equal to the situation,” she added. “I would like to thank RSF for respecting the silence we requested and for constantly issuing reminders about their plight and the plight of all other kidnapped journalists.”RSF regards Syria as the world’s most dangerous country for media personnel. At least 139 journalists and 47 citizen-journalists have been killed there since the start of the war in March 2011. Around 30 are still imprisoned by the government and at least 26 (including six foreign journalists) are either missing or being held hostage by radical groups such as Islamic State and Al-Nusra Front.“These factions abduct foreign journalists for various purposes,” Aznárez added. “It is a way to obtain ransoms, it is a way to sow terror in the cities they control and it is a propaganda tool. We call for the immediate release of all kidnapped journalists, for whom we will continue to fight by all possible means.”Syria is ranked 177th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
