When I say basket, I mean four stocks, investing £250 in each. I think this would give me a good range of investments without spreading my money too thinly. And the companies I’d buy are some of my favourite investments on the market right now. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…UK shares to buy The first stock I’d acquire is IG Group. This financial services company has reported rapid growth over the past few years as the business has doubled down on expansion. It now offers spread betting and traditional stockbroking services.What’s more, the company is building up its overseas business. As the group expands, I think its profits will continue to grow, translating into increasing investor returns.That said, growth is not guaranteed. A bad acquisition could saddle the business with high costs, and this would hold back growth. However, even after considering this risk, I’d still buy IG Group for my £1k portfolio of UK shares.Another stock I’d buy is Severn Trent. The utility business sits in an entirely different industry to IG, which should give me some diversification. Moreover, utility businesses are considered to be highly defensive companies. As a result, income tends to be reasonably stable and predictable, which supports their dividends.Regulators can be a thorn in companies’ side, however. If regulators reduce the amount of profit water providers are allowed to earn, Severn Trent could have to cut its 4.1% dividend yield. Despite this risk, I’d buy the stock for income in my portfolio of UK shares. DiversificationAnother company I would buy in a different sector is the pharmaceutical business Hikma (LSE: HIK). This firm manufactures generic drugs and other treatments. As the demand for affordable healthcare grows, I expect the need for these treatments to increase.As one of the largest companies in the sector, Hikma can afford to invest significant sums in research and development as well as marketing to make sure its products are always at the front of healthcare professionals’ minds.The company’s primary risks are the potential for lawsuits, as its business model relies on manufacturing other organisations’ treatments at a lower cost. It could also be faced with higher prices for raw materials.Even after taking these challenges into account, I would buy the stock for my £1k portfolio of UK shares.The final stock on my list is retailer Marks and Spencer. This is a recovery investment. As the UK economy rebuilds after the pandemic, I think Marks has a chance to grab market share from struggling competitors.However, the company has struggled with growth in the past, and there’s no guarantee it will manage to take advantage of these opportunities in the future. As such, this investment might not be suitable for all, but I’m comfortable buying £250 worth of the business for my £1,000 portfolio of UK shares. Image source: Getty Images

Photo: Getty Images Tries from JP Pietersen and Eben Etzebeth helped South Africa to a third-place finish at the 2015 World Cup. Argentina dominated possession and territory during this Bronze final, but it was the Springboks who dominated on the scoreboard, kicking for goal when the opportunity presented itself and withstanding waves of determined Pumas attack. The biggest cheer came in the 82nd minute, though, when the Boks’ defence was finally broken, Juan Pablo Orlandi touching down from close range as a consolation.WHAT’S HOTFlat Pumas – It’s rare to see a team play as close to the gain-line as Argentina do. They were making passes while standing practically chest to chest with their South African opponents and it was great to watch. Argentina’s ability to play in such confined spaces meant the Springboks didn’t know what they were going to do – in fairness, the Pumas probably didn’t know at times either!Last act: Springbok Victor Matfield is heading to Northampton now. Photo: Getty ImagesFond farewells – This was the last time we’ll see the likes of Victor Matfield and Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe in Test action, and it was fitting that they both received warm rounds of applause as they left the field in the second half. They have both given huge amounts for their country and for rugby.Santiago Cordero – The 21-year-old wing has been a real bright spark during this World Cup and he did the same in this match. At times he was like a pinball darting in and out and around defenders, looking for a slither of space to slink through. He needs to work on keeping hold of the ball – his turnover stats are unlikely to make pleasant reading – but his willingness to run the ball from anywhere is refreshing and suits the more attack-minded game plan the Pumas now prefer.Free spirit: Santiago Cordero wrong-foots Willie le Roux. Photo: Getty ImagesWHAT’S NOTAtmosphere – The vibe at this stadium hasn’t matched other World Cup venues for noise and colour, but for this game the atmosphere was particularly flat. Okay, it was the third-place play-off, a match that doesn’t bring out the passion and emotion of a decisive pool match or World Cup final, but even taking that into account it was hard to tell if the crowd were engaged in events on the field.Feeling flat? Argentina fans at the Olympic Stadium. Photo: Getty ImagesThe Argentina fans – standouts throughout the tournament – did their best, bursting into chants and jumping up and down for a few seconds at a time, but it was not enough to spark the rest of the audience into life. South Africa’s decision to kick for goal rather than go for tries from penalties didn’t help matters. In fact, their attitude resulted in boos.One discussion in the press box focused on whether a Plate final between, say, Japan and Georgia would have been a better alternative. Something for World Rugby to ponder before Japan 2019.Not to be: Bryan Habana fumbles on the line – one of many blown chances. Photo: Getty ImagesHabana’s record chase – Just one try. That’s all Bryan Habana needed to hit 16 and break clear of Jonah Lomu to become the outright top try-scorer in World Cup history. It just wasn’t falling for him in the first half, though. South Africa’s first try after six minutes came on the opposite wing, JP Pietersen going over. He touched down himself four minutes later after a chip over the defence, but the TMO ruled that Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino had got the ball down first.He then pounced on the ball at a ruck and burst clear but was brought down by an Argentina tackle. Handre Pollard broke in the Pumas’ 22 and sent a pass out wide to Habana but he knocked on. He picked up another loose ball and chipped ahead but was penalised for pulling back Nicolas Sanchez in the chase. He rushed up for the intercept in the closing minutes of the first half but missed and Argentina broke into South Africa’s 22.Come the second half, the ball just didn’t go his way – clearly some things just aren’t meant to be.STATISTICS What’s hot and what’s not from the third-place play-off at the Olympic Stadium LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Attendance: 55,925For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.
Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ June 23, 2017 at 3:50 pm If, as the Catechism says, there are 4 orders of ministry in the Epis. Church, it seems logical thatthe Board for the training of Bishops should have similar membership. A weighting towardsa greater number of bishops would be acceptable. But all orders should be present ( at leasttwo in each order).

An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET June 23, 2017 at 3:38 pm There is an ELCA program to help “baby” bishops learn how to be bishops in the fullest sense.Glad to learn of the Episcopal churches program as well. r h lewis (VTS 1963) says: June 28, 2017 at 2:15 pm Spirituality is the Key. Spirituality can not be attained in training/workshop for “baby bishops” regardless of who is leading this group… Spirituality is a virtue and cultivated and nourished throughout one’s early years and expanded/renewed in the growth of this Spirituality a constant throughout one’s life, fullfillment neverending… Spirituality has been described as a sacred virtue of the soul. And I must add that as an almost “cradle to grave” Episcopalian of the core Holy Trinity. I have been so blessed with those bishops/clergy who are inspired as briefly described above…Thus when one does “encounter” bishops/clergy who do not reflect this spirituality in voice/action this moment in time is astounding, reverberating–as those bishops/clergy have the position of great disservice to parishioners and the greater community which they are inherently obligated to serve… For those who have not experienced this firsthand may not be able to imagine such in our great Episcopal tradition, but to those who can relate/connect, this can be a voice of resonance of our long tradition of our Baptismal Covenant and following the Ministry of our Dear Saviour and Redeemer our Dear Lord Jesus Christ.

Is it love by design non transactional? I have seen the behavior in different Bishops and t is like they heard that somewhere? I am mostly curious, as it sounds to me one of those transfers from the market place and corporate discipline that we end up with frequently.

It is harder to “color outside the lines” when your colleagues are instructing you how to stay in the lines. The job of a bishop is stressful and demanding. There does not seem to be much re-thinking and experimenting with new models. Maybe continuing what has been done for the last 17 years is not the best way … but it is what we usually do!

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] How do you learn to be a bishop? For most of the Episcopal Church’s life, new bishops learned on the job with little or no outside help.It’s only in the last 24 years that the church has had a formal process for such learning. That process, run by the College for Bishops, is about to undergo a major transition.Bishop F. Clayton Matthews, who leads the college in his role as the head of the presiding bishop’s Office of Pastoral Development, will retire June 30. He served in that role since 1998.Matthews led the formation of the College for Bishops’ three-year program for new bishops, known as Living Our Vows, in 2004. The college also provides continuing education offerings for all bishops. Living Our Vows was developed after a multi-year study of bishops’ needs. The resulting program is designed to help bishops grow spiritually, vocationally and in “their capacity to provide the kind of leadership that the Church needs for the mission of Jesus to which we are called,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said.The College for Bishops will leave the pastoral development office with Matthews when he retires. He will report to Curry and direct the college’s formation mission for another two years on a part-time basis.Eastern Michigan Bishop Todd Ousley succeeds Matthews as head of the pastoral development office on July 5. That office will continue to support the House of Bishops and the presiding bishop with pastoral care of bishops, their families and diocesan systems; and mediation in Title IV disciplinary matters.The College for Bishops has been part of the Office of Pastoral Development until now. However, its status within the governance structure of the Episcopal Church changed in 2010. The House of Bishops unanimously voted to incorporate it as a separate nonprofit entity. Matthews explained that the college is now owned by the House of Bishops. It has a $6 million endowment, according to Matthews.All of the changes come as the Task Force on the Episcopacy considers the election, appointment, roles and responsibilities of the church’s bishops. General Convention asked in 2015 for the study. It also charged the task force with proposing to the 2018 convention a new process for discernment, nomination, formation, search, election and transition of bishops.Some members of the Task Force on the Episcopacy are challenging the ownership of the college and the fact that it reports directly to the presiding bishop.Participants in the 2017 session of Living Our Vows, the College for Bishops’ three-year formation program for new bishops, discuss (via teleconference) author Donna Hicks’ research about the role of dignity in conflict resolution. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceLiving Our Vows – sometimes known around the church as “Baby Bishop School” – consists mainly of an annual one-week “residency” meeting. Some of the classes offered during the week are geared to whether a participant is a first-, second- or third-year bishop. They run the gamut from canon law to leadership training to dealing with the media. Bishops debrief each other on incidents that have occurred in their dioceses, offering them as a chance for all to learn.A so-called “Hats and Sticks” session teaches bishops what to do with their miter and crozier, and when to do it. There is a session on the liturgies in the Book of Common Prayer at which only a bishop presides: confirmation and ordinations.Bishops listen June 14 as Mary Kostel, special counsel to the presiding bishop for property litigation and discipline, explains the Episcopal Church’s clergy discipline canon, known as Title IV. The session was part of Living Our Vows, the College for Bishops’ three-year formation program for new bishops. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceBuilding community is another goal of Living Our Vows. Beginning with a gathering of new bishops and their spouses each January, the college connects bishops elected around the same time. Some so-called “classes” are large – the 2017 one has 12 – while some are small, such as the Class of 2015 with four. Twenty-five bishops participated in the 2017 session, held June 12-16 at the Roslyn Retreat Center in Richmond, Virginia.“You realize that you’re not alone,” said the Rt. Rev. Gretchen Rehberg, who became the bishop of Spokane in mid-March. The program, she said, is beginning to teach her to whom to turn for help in doing what she called “a singular job.”Puerto Rico Bishop-elect Rafael Morales Maldonado said his first session of Living Our Vows comes at a “providential” time. He will be ordained as a bishop on July 22.The Class of 2017 also includes bishops and bishops-elect from Central New York, Indianapolis, Northern Indiana, Pennsylvania, Los Angeles, Spokane and Western North Carolina, as well as the church’s federal ministries bishop and three from Toronto in the Anglican Church of Canada. That diversity is “a treasure for me,” Morales said.“In many cases, their experiences are similar but in different contexts,” he said.Diocese of Pennsylvania Bishop Daniel Gutierrez, center left, shares a smile with Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Coadjutor-Elect John Taylor, center right, during the June 14 Bible study that was part of Living Our Vows. Presenter Matthew Sheep (striped shirt), Central Gulf Coast Bishop Russell Kendrick (light blue shirt back to camera), Eastern Oregon Bishop Patrick Bell and Bishop Suffragan for the Armed Forces and Federal Ministries Carl Wright were also part of the group. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceQuebec Bishop Bruce Myers, in the Class of 2016, represents a growing trend for the college: welcoming bishops from elsewhere in the Anglican Communion. There are currently four Canadian bishops participating. And the session at Roslyn was the last for El Salvador Bishop David Alvarado from the Anglican Province of Central America.Myers said the college is giving him “some intentional formation around what becoming a bishop and serving in the order of bishops is all about.” That work happens with the Canadian bishops in the program (there is no such training in Canada), as well as Episcopal Church bishops.“In a way, this is a great leveling place and we find the common ground of our episcopal ministry,” he said.Living Our Vows pairs new bishops with a “peer coach” bishop. Myers’ is Bishop Steve Lane of Maine, whose diocese forms a common border with Quebec.The Canadian bishops might, he said, bring to the college “a glimpse of a church that’s similar in many ways, shares a common territory and common context in many ways, but is dealing with those realities, perhaps, in slightly different ways simply because of our circumstances,” he saidFor example, the abusive legacy of the residential school system obligates Myers’ church to find ways to “walk together with indigenous Anglican and indigenous Canadians outside the church in meaningful and appropriate ways.” That work might be an example to the Episcopal Church bishops, he said.Diocese of Massachusetts Bishop Alan Gates speaks to Bishop F. Clayton Matthews, right, and retired Bishop Suffragan Terry Dance of the Anglican Church of Canada’s Diocese of Huron, during a June 14 Bible study that was part of Living Our Vows. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceMassachusetts Bishop Alan Gates, who finished Living Our Vows with the recent session, said the college is valuable in two ways. First is the content. “There is no training track for bishops in advance of election because our polity, our theology, suggests that we don’t know in advance who will be called to be a bishop,” he said.Second, he said, “it would be hard to overstate the importance” of the creating support networks, he said, noting that many bishops work alone in their dioceses without bishop suffragans or assistants.“It’s widely misconstrued as a kind of exclusive attitude that bishops would feel the need for more time together,” he said. “But, for me, that’s not what’s driving it. It really is a yearning for that kind of support, knowing and being known by others who face the particular challenges of this.”Collegiality in the House of Bishops is one of the college’s goals. In an interview with Episcopal News Service (available here), Matthews said the atmosphere in the house when he began his work was “toxic” and one of “total distrust.” This stemmed mainly from the wider church’s debate about the full inclusion of LGBT people in the life of the church, he said.“We had to create an atmosphere where there was more respect within the house for the context in which bishops worked,” he said.The presiding bishop said the plan is working. “I have seen it in the 17 years that I have been a bishop,” he said. “I have seen real development and real growth in our capacity to be a community of bishops and spouses that is real and genuine.”“I’ve seen the impact of that in the house in terms of our increased capacity to be able to navigate complex and sometimes difficult terrain in decision-making as a community and still maintain relationships that bind us together,” he said.The college helps bishops be “more deeply faithful and effective in the performance of our duties and in the living out of our episcopal ministry,” the presiding bishop said.A bishop’s work and ministry are different from that of a priest, Curry said, recalling that an older bishop told him that when he first became a bishop he was really changing careers.The college faces a great challenge in forming bishops who can help lead the Episcopal Church into becoming a branch of the Jesus Movement, he said. The coming question is how to train bishops so they can provide spiritual leadership to the church so it can “bear witness to a way of being Christians that actually looks something like Jesus of Nazareth?”Diocese of Texas Bishop Andy Doyle, a member of the college’s board of directors, sets up the June 14 Bible study that was part of Living Our Vows, the college’s three-year formation program for new bishops. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe presiding bishop chairs the college’s board of directors and nominates its members. Of the 19 current members, 14 are male bishops, four are lay people and one is a priest. The priest and one of the lay members are bishops’ wives.In the next two years, Matthews said, he hopes he is “not having to spend all of my energy defending the right of the college to exist.”The Very Rev. Gary Hall, a task force member, said he and others are not concerned about the existence of the college, but about its governance. If all orders of the church elect bishops, then the board of the entity charged with forming bishops ought to better represent all those orders.Hall said that making the college a separate entity worries some on the task force because the curriculum and the logistics of the programs were developed when the college was part of the church. That intellectual property left the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (the name under which church is incorporated) when the college separately incorporated, Hall contended.He sees nothing nefarious in the college’s effort.“I think that the desire to make it a [nonprofit entity] was a desire to protect it financially, and nobody really thought through the implications of that in terms of the legal issues or the governance issues or accountability to the whole church.”However, the move points to an attitude that Hall called “episcopal exceptionalism.”“The culture of bishops in my working life has become much more distinct from the culture of the rest of the church,” he said.This has happened in the same years that the church has moved to an understanding of baptism as being the “fundamental commissioning of ministry.”“The culture of the episcopacy has gone in exactly the opposite direction,” said Hall, who was ordained in 1977. An insular formation process contributes to that trajectory, he added.A bishop’s job is getting harder, Hall said, and he believes they need “all the professional education and support that they can get. That’s not the issue. The issue is we all have a stake in the education and wellness of bishops.”The task force is due to make its proposals to General Convention via a “Blue Book” report sometime early next year. The suggestions will be debated during the July 5-13, 2018, meeting in Austin, Texas.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is senior editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Each wall segment is ramping and this feature strengthens the project dynamics.Save this picture!© Thomas HämmerliCoupled with the stylized articulations, these walls shape the house as if it were a long carved rock rising from the garden on the hill.Project gallerySee allShow lessStealth Cabin / Superkül incSelected Projects2014 RIBA London AwardsArchitecture News Share CopyHouses•La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland 2012 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/503377/villa-dind-link-architectes Clipboard Year: Switzerland CopyAbout this officeLink architectesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLa Tour-de-PeilzHousesSwitzerlandPublished on May 08, 2014Cite: “Villa Dind / Link architectes” 08 May 2014.

The house is located in the quiet residential area in the boundary of Central Tokyo. It was built on a lot measuring 6.5m wide and 13m deep, surrounded by rich greenery including a big old cheery blossom tree. The house owner likes outdoor activities, camping in a forest. Although this building was built in an urban area, the design of this house needs to meet their demand which can respond to the outdoor lifestyle and feel the changes of seasons and the weather intimately.Save this picture!Floor PlanTherefore, the attic has 2 treehouse design rooms that seem floating above the living room. The concept of the design is to maximize the use of existing natural resources like, Sunlight, Wind and Greenery, to create a healthy residential environment and not depending too much on technology. To make use of the natural ventilation, high ceiling is more appropriate for the hot and humid climate of Tokyo. And the windows set between 2 treehouse fill the living room with soft natural lighting.Save this picture!© Masayoshi IshiiThe typical plan was bent like a dogleg, which was designed to face the big old cherry blossom and enfold the rich greenery and intake cool wind from the west. In addition, although the area on the 2nd floor is quite small, 35sm, the dogleg shape can give more expanse and depth to the space visually than a rectangular plan. The high ceiling and the existence of the floating bridge can also add a vertical expanse.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe existence of treehouse provides not only fun playgrounds for kids but also a natural warm atmosphere. At the same time, it can make the line between outdoor and indoor blurred and it creates an outdoor-like scene, while indoor.Save this picture!© Masayoshi IshiiProject gallerySee allShow lessJC House / JPS AtelierSelected ProjectsShenzhen Dotwell Office Design / ElsedesignSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/776677/small-house-with-floating-treehouse-yuki-miyamoto-architect Clipboard Houses Small House with Floating Treehouse / Yuki Miyamoto ArchitectSave this projectSaveSmall House with Floating Treehouse / Yuki Miyamoto Architect 2013 CopyHouses•Tokyo, Japan Year: 2013 Architects: Yuki Miyamoto Architect Area Area of this architecture project Small House with Floating Treehouse / Yuki Miyamoto Architect Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeYuki Miyamoto ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoJapanPublished on November 08, 2015Cite: “Small House with Floating Treehouse / Yuki Miyamoto Architect” 08 Nov 2015.

Daily Mail and MailOnline publisher Associated Newspapers has paid £120,000 in damages to Interpal over its false allegations of terrorism and extremism.Associated Newspapers has published full apologies and paid £120,000 in libel damages to the trustees of Interpal, a UK-based registered charity that provides relief and development aid to Palestinians in need. Associated Newspapers will also be paying the trustees’ legal costs.The trustees’ complaint related to articles published last year on 2 and 15 August 2018, which alleged that Interpal had supported a “hate festival” in Gaza in which children acted out the murder of Jewish people. However while Interpal and others had donated to the festival, it did not fund or support the play, had no prior knowledge of it and condemned both the play and the activities it depicted as soon as they became aware of it.The 15 August article also referred to Interpal having been listed in the United States as a “specially designated global terrorist organisation”.However, the US designation had been made back in 2003 and has always been strongly contested by Interpal and the trustees while investigations by the Commission have found no reason to alter its charitable status.Two full apologies have been published on MailOnline, one on the MailOnline App, and prominently in the print edition of the Daily Mail. In apologising unreservedly to the Trustees, MailOnline accepted that “neither Interpal, nor its trustees, have ever been involved in or provided support for terrorist activity of any kind.”Speaking after the resolution of the libel complaint, Ibrahim Hewitt, the Chairman of the trustees, said:“Interpal and the trustees welcome the decision taken by Associated Newspapers both to apologise formally and pay a suitable sum in damages, in recognition of the gravity of the falsehoods that were published. The timing and amount of the settlement are particularly noteworthy within the context of the ongoing wider agenda to politicise humanitarian aid to Palestinians. We hope that this significant success will encourage commentators and others to take seriously their responsibility for reporting unbiased, accurate information to the general public and service providers.” 341 total views, 2 views today Advertisement Daily Mail publisher pays Interpal £120k in libel damages 342 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

SHARE SHARE New Hybrids Require New Nitrogen PlanBill MullinsWhile farmers welcome improvements in seed genetics that increase corn yields, many are missing out on the full benefits by not making changes in their nitrogen application program, says agronomist Bill Mullins. At a Seed Consultants agronomy meeting in Vigo County recently, Mullins said many farmers are “missing the boat” when it comes to nitrogen application on some corn hybrids. “These new high-yielding hybrids require more nitrogen, but they also require that nitrogen to be in the plant post-flowering.” He said there is research that shows some new hybrids are taking up nitrogen much later in the growth cycle than previously.Mullins said applying nitrogen prior to tasseling is not the right schedule for some high-yielding hybrids, “We have to make sure we have enough nitrogen in the plant post-flowering because that is when the yield is being determined.” He added that there are a lot of early season stresses that will lose nitrogen.He said, for some growers, a split application program may be the best option, “Not on all your fields, but in those high yield environments a split application can really make a difference.” By Gary Truitt – Jan 25, 2017 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articlePerdue Confirmation Hearing on HoldNext articleWet Weather Across the U.S. Turns Midwest Fields to Mud Gary Truitt New Hybrids Require New Nitrogen Plan Home Indiana Agriculture News New Hybrids Require New Nitrogen Plan
