This is a weekly update from agronomists around the state on local field and crop conditions.  Our first report focuses on East Central Indiana. Brian Bush says fields in the East Central part of the state are still too wet and cold for any planting activity.  His advice is to watch the forecast for a window of dry and warm conditions, “It is one thing to plant when the soil temp is 55 degrees and warming, but quite another to plant when a cold front is coming with cold wet rain. I have seen too many times when we get uneven emergence and just don’t get the crop off to a good start.”last_img read more

No verdict was announced at the end of the trial, and Reporters Without Borders called for his acquittal.“Exposing corruption or providing information about public health crises is part of a journalist’s work,” the press freedom organisation said. “Denying the media the right to investigate such issues means treating them as mere mouthpieces of the government.”Arrested on 3 February 2005, Li was initially accused of “subverting the state” but, according to his lawyer, Mo Shaoping, the prosecutor had no evidence to support this accusation so Li was finally charged with fabricating an alarmist report about dengue fever in the eastern city of Fuzhou that was posted on the Boxun.com website. The Washington Post quoted Mo as saying the report was written by the site’s editors using information provided by Li.According to his family, Li is really being punished for writing articles supporting a Chinese official, Huang Jigao, who wrote an open letter in 2004 criticising local government corruption. Mo said the verdict ought to be announced by 15 February.A total of 32 journalists and some 50 cyber-dissidents are currently imprisoned in China.
