When you consider 2018 seed selection, you probably want to pencil out how to save a few dollars without it costing you next fall. “When you think about which hybrids to plant next season, make sure to take into account all the relevant factors,” says Mark Licht, Iowa State University Extension cropping systems specialist, in an Integrated Crop Management article. Many factors should be considered when it comes to hybrid selection, such as crop rotation and management practices.
Soil temperatures are dropping and moving toward the 50°F. threshold for fall nitrogen (N) applications. If you’re thinking about fall applications, do you know if you should you use an inhibitor? The University of Minnesota (U of M) shared results from fall nitrification inhibitors in a Minnesota Crop News article. Here’s what they found.
An agreement between the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Monsanto, BASF, and DuPont agrees on measures to further minimize the potential for drift to damage neighboring crops from the use of dicamba formulations. New requirements for dicamba applications will allow farmers to make informed choices for seed purchases for the 2018 growing season, according to the EPA.
Last week, more than 100,000 people in Puerto Rico got internet access by hot-air balloon provided by Alphabet, Google's parent company. That could be a “game changer” in terms of connectivity, says Federal Communications Commission Chairman, Ajit Pai. https://t.co/0X62jOxLhM
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
