Beet Armyworm Infestation Falls to Under Five Per Cent

first_imgRelatedRoger Clarke was a Special, One of a Kind Politician Says PM The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries is reporting that the Beet Armyworm infestation, that has been plaguing St Elizabeth, has declined to less than five per cent in cultivations still affected by the pest.Acting Deputy Director of the Crop and Plant Protection Unit in the Ministry’s Research and Development Division, Michelle Sherwood, says this decline results from extensive field work undertaken by the Ministry, in collaboration with the farmers, and other stakeholders, across the parish.These efforts have been supported by technical and financial assistance to from international organizations such as the United Nations (UN) Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and United States Agency for International Development (USAID).Speaking with JIS News following the recent graduation ceremony for participants in the Ministry’s nine-week farmers capacity building training programme, at the Junction Guest House in St. Elizabeth, Mrs. Sherwood said while the worm is still present in the parish, assured that it exists “in very low numbers.”She informed that the last major pest outbreak in St. Elizabeth, since the worm first surfaced in 2009, was in 2012.“Since that, we have not had an outbreak. We may have small flare-ups in numbers, but nothing compared to the devastation that occurred between 2009 and 2012,” she indicated.Based on the contents of the recently concluded nine-week programme, which targeted training for 150 farmers in St. Elizabeth in combating the pest, Mrs. Sherwood expressed confidence that the knowledge imparted will go a far way in helping to eventually eliminate the worm.Mrs. Sherwood explained that the exercise, titled: ‘Strengthening a National Beet Armyworm Programme’, focused on administering environmentally friendly control strategies, as against the application of chemicals and pesticides.She said the farmers are now more informed and better able to identify problems associated with the worm at earlier stages and, thereby, undertake timely application of the appropriate interventions.“We do (believe) that the training has been (and will be) a benefit to both the farmers and also to us, the facilitators, as we also learnt a lot of things from the farmers. I believe (that the) interaction (which) the farmers field school provided will also help us, in the long run, to further enhance the pest management programme,” she stated.Mrs. Sherwood advised that, as part of the ongoing work plan of the Research and Development Division, there will be continuous training and information sharing between farmers and field extension officers.She added that even with the pest’s lingering presence, albeit at a lower percentage, with proper management, good crop outputs and high production yields can be achieved.The training programme was funded by the FAO under a two year agreement with the Government of Jamaica, with technical assistance provided by USAID.

Wessex Exploration: GM-ES-4 Shows No Hydrocarbons (French Guiana)

first_imgWessex Exploration PLC announces the conclusion of drilling activities on the GM-ES-4 well in French Guiana.The well penetrated the primary and secondary reservoir objectives before drilling operations were concluded at a total depth of 6,292m. The results of the wireline logging programme has confirmed the presence of reservoir, however no evidence of hydrocarbons is seen from the drilling or wireline log data. The well is now being plugged and abandoned.The Stena ICEMax will now drill the GM-ES-5 exploration well, which will be located on the Cingulata fan in which the Zaedyus discovery was made in 2011. The well is designed to explore deeper targets within the Cingulata fan complex as well as testing the potential downdip extension of the GM-ES-1 discovery.GM-ES-5 is the last in a four well exploration drilling campaign that commenced in mid 2012 to follow up the Zaedyus oil discovery made in 2011.Wessex owns a net 1.25 per cent interest in the offshore exploration licence ‘Guyane Maritime’ through its holding of 50 per cent of Northpet Investment Limited. Wessex is in partnership with Shell (Operator, holding 45 per cent), Tullow (27.5 per cent), Total (25 per cent) and Northern Petroleum Plc (also holding 1.25 per cent through owning the remaining 50 per cent interest in Northpet Investment Limited).Malcolm Butler, Chairman of Wessex Exploration PLC stated:“Although the GM-ES-4 well did not encounter hydrocarbons, the data from this well will now be integrated with that from the previous wells drilled by the group to assist in the interpretation of the new ‘Central Slope’ 4,300 square kilometres 3D seismic volume. The additional information will help the partnership understand and minimise the risks of new leads and prospects being developed within in the Guyane Maritime permit. I now look forward to the drilling of the GM-ES-5 well and the opportunity that it presents the Company and Shareholders.” [mappress]Press Release, July 23, 2013last_img read more

LSU finds rhythm in time for Ole Miss

first_imgBATON ROUGE – LSU may not be back in the mix, but at least it is in the bowl.The Tigers got bowl eligible with a dominating, 41-3 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night for their sixth win and returned to the national polls on Sunday afternoon just in time for No. 3 Ole Miss and ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday.LSU (6-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) was ranked No. 23 in the USA Today coaches’ poll and No. 24 in the Associated Press media poll after falling out of the polls with a 41-7 loss at Auburn on Oct. 4.“I think what is happening is this football team is coming together,” LSU coach Les Miles said after his team won its second straight game. “We are improving. We are in a position to play better, and I think this football team is looking forward to that. I think the timing is right.”The Rebels (7-0, 4-0 SEC), who are off to their best start since their only perfect season in 1962 at 10-0, will play LSU in Tiger Stadium at 6:15 p.m. Saturday on ESPN, and ESPN’s College GameDay pregame show decided late Saturday to broadcast on Saturday from the Parade Grounds on the LSU campus from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.LSU was chosen for GameDay’s broadcast site for the 10th time since 1996 and first time since Nov. 3, 2012, when the No. 5 Tigers lost, 21-17, to No. 1 Alabama in the final moments.LSU is 5-4 at home with GameDay, which began in ESPN’s studios in Bristol, Connecticut, in 1987 before moving to on-campus sites in 1993. The Tigers have been the visiting team when GameDay is in town another six times and won four of those, including over Alabama in Tuscaloosa 2005 and in 2011. In neutral site appearances for national championship games and season openers, LSU is 5-1. Overall, the Tigers are 14-7 with GameDay in town.The Tigers have never hosted Ole Miss for GameDay, but it has been a special season so far for the Rebels, who defeated No. 1 Alabama, 23-17, on Oct. 4 for the first time since 2003. Ole Miss will bring to Tiger Stadium its best-ever overall and SEC records. The Rebels will also enter Tiger Stadium with their highest ranking since also being No. 3 in 1963 when it was 4-0-1 on the season and beat LSU, 37-3. Saturday’s game will be the first LSU-Ole Miss pairing in which the Rebels are the higher ranked team since 1999 when No. 25 Ole Miss beat unranked LSU, 42-23, in Tiger Stadium.Ole Miss, which held Tennessee to zero rushing yards in a 34-3 win Saturday in Oxford, Miss., is No. 1 in the nation in scoring defense with 10.6 points allowed a game and is No. 8 in the in nation in total defense with 290 yards allowed a game. The Rebels are fifth in the nation in turnover margin at plus-10 and are tied for first nationally with 15 interceptions. Senior cornerback Senquez Golson is second in the nation with seven interceptions. Ole Miss is also sixth in the nation in rush defense with 97.1 yards allowed a game.“They’re phenomenal,” Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace said of his team’s defense after the Tennessee game. “They’re fun to watch. Before the season, I knew they were good. I didn’t know they were this good. All I have to do is take care of the ball.”Wallace has done just that as he has not turned the ball over in four SEC games and is No. 9 in the nation in passing efficiency at 163.0 on 137-of-209 passing for 1,899 yards and 17 touchdowns against six interceptions.“I’m looking forward to it. They have a spread offense and some pretty good receivers, and they’re going to compete,” LSU defensive back Rickey Jefferson said.Rickey JeffersonRickey Jefferson“We have to get over this win because how we practice is going to be how we play against Ole Miss,” said safety Jamal Adams.Jamal AdamsJamal AdamsLSU quarterback Anthony Jennings, who improved to 7-1 as a starter, is 60th in the nation in passing efficiency at 132.1 on 64-of-128 passing for 1,048 yards and seven touchdowns against three interceptions. He has not turned the ball over in his last three games and was 7 of 14 for 120 yards with a 32-yard touchdown to wide receiver Travin Dural Saturday.Anthony JenningsAnthony Jennings“Every game we get more and more comfortable with the offense and the guys around us,” Jennings said. “This game was a building step to getting better each week.

Death toll in ambulance-car bombing claimed by Taliban rises to 95 with more than 150 injured

first_img Related iStock/Thinkstock(KABUL, Afghanistan) — A powerful suicide car bomb rocked Afghanistan’s capital Saturday morning, killing at least 95 people and injuring 158, according to Wahidullah Majrooh, a spokesman for the country’s health ministry.The Taliban claimed responsibility for the insurgent attack in Kabul, which is the deadliest in the country so far this year.Police in Kabul said the explosion occurred near the entrance to the government’s former interior ministry building at the end of Chicken Street, a popular thoroughfare for shopping. The attacker was driving an ambulance, according to the Afghan interior ministry.“I was in my shop. I heard a big boom,” Haji Wali, a shopkeeper told ABC News. “I came out and helped the people wounded. There were many people wounded. People are still laying down on the footpaths close to shops.”Thick, dark smoke was seen billowing into the sky after the blast.Emergency Hospital, on the front line of trauma care in Afghanistan and run by an Italian charity, said it received at least 50 injured victims.“I helped and moved around 50 to 60 wounded people myself,” a man on the street named Parwaiz Ihsan told ABC News. “I just came back but there are many dead bodies still laying down there; we couldn’t move them.”Afghanistan’s chief executive, Abdullah Abdullah, decried the attack as “insane, inhuman, heinous and a war crime” via his official Twitter account. He also urged the international community to “take further action against state sponsored terrorism.”Abdullah tweeted, “Our priority and focus right now is to help those in need and provide the best treatment for those wounded. This is the moment when we all need to stand together and punch our enemy hard. This is enough!”U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan John Bass also condemned Saturday’s attack, describing it as a “senseless and cowardly bombing.”“My government and I stand with the brave people of Afghanistan,” Bass said in a statement. “Their work to create a peaceful, prosperous future for all the citizens of this country is the best response to terrorists and others who know only violence.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
