Rain Putting a Halt to Planting Throughout Hoosier State

Eric Pfeiffer Rain Putting a Halt to Planting Throughout Hoosier State Rain Putting a Halt to Planting Throughout Hoosier StateHAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says planting will have to take a bit of a break because of the recent rains that came through, especially in Northern Indiana.“Rainfall totals of an inch to 2 inches were easily seen over the northern third of the state. You get up into Southern Michigan, I’ve got some reports of 3 to 5 inch rainfall totals, so there were some heavy pockets. Now you have to see how long it’s going to take to dry things down.”Martin says we can expect dry air late Friday and through Saturday, but on Sunday, “We have a minor disturbance trying to move through. Not a lot of moisture, a few hundredths of an inch to maybe a quarter of an inch, covering maybe 60 percent of the state.“There’s going to be clouds around. The problem is if you have clouds, if you have moisture, you don’t have good dry down conditions. So, you can’t look at us to dry out on Sunday. That means we extend our drying into Monday, when we should see dry weather. Maybe we can get back into the fields Tuesday into Wednesday.”Martin’s forecast calls for dry weather those days, but then moderate to heavy rains return on Thursday.“A strong front could bring us anywhere from a 0.5-1.5 inches of rain for Thursday and early Friday. Then we play the every other day kind of scenario from there forward. So, rain Thursday, but then again on Saturday, then maybe some on Monday, then we go to Thursday the 17th with moisture. That kind of set up doesn’t allow for very big opportunities to get things dried down, and to get back in the fields.”This week’s planting forecast made possible by First Farmers Bank and Trust, Proudly Serving Local Farmers, and by Kokomo Grain.

Shield win ‘to boost United youth’

first_imgChris Smalling believes Manchester United’s youth brigade will get an additional nudge forward as a direct result of Sunday’s 2-0 Community Shield win over Wigan. “This manager is the same as the previous manager when it comes to giving young players a chance,” Smalling said. “He gave them a good chance on tour and they’ve shown what they can do. “It can be quite daunting when you go away with the first team for a few weeks but they’ve really bedded in.” Meanwhile, United have confirmed global watchmaker Bulova as their official timekeeper and global partner on a three-year sponsorship agreement. Although Lingard was not included in the match-day squad he was on hand for the subsequent celebrations as United emerged victorious thanks to Robin van Persie’s double. In his two years with the Red Devils, Smalling has seen at first hand the winning mentality that exists throughout the club. And he is confident it is already starting to rub off on his three newest team-mates. “Celebrating in the dressing room after winning a trophy is always a fantastic feeling,” Smalling told manutd.com. “It just makes you hungrier to do it again. “It’s great for some of the new lads like Wilf, Jesse and Adnan to experience that feeling – it really gets you in the zone and shows you what you’re fighting for.” Although Lingard and Januzaj might well have been loaned out had Sir Alex Ferguson remained in charge, new manager David Moyes has indicated a desire to keep them both at Old Trafford. The continued lack of new signings as the hours tick down to Saturday’s tough-looking opening-day trip to Swansea make it impossible for Moyes to consider weakening his squad at present. But Smalling is convinced anyway that Moyes will continue the long-established strategy of handing younger players their opportunity, which Ferguson was so keen on. Wilfried Zaha, Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj were the three stand-out performers during United’s pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia. Zaha was rewarded with a starting berth at Wembley last weekend, while 18-year-old Belgian Januzaj was on the bench. Press Associationlast_img read more
