Crusoe wheat impresses with quality

first_imgThe winter wheat variety Crusoe has been impressing growers due to its quality and disease resistance, according to its breeder Limagrain UK.Despite the poor harvest seen last summer, Crusoe grower Clive Wreathall, from Chapel Farm, combined a bumper crop of the wheat variety on his farm in south-west Kent, which is grown on contract for Warburtons.Limagrain said the new variety outperformed other well-established bread wheats on his farm, such as Solstice and Cordiale, with a yield of 11.2t/ha. It achieved protein levels of 14%, a specific weight of 80-82kg/hl and a high Hagberg to meet Warburtons 225 minimum, and sold his crop at Christmas for £244/t.Wreathall said: “On present form, Crusoe looks like being a successor to Solstice and looks like the kind of wheat we want to grow.”He added that the wheat produced a quality crop in a tough year, had good septoria disease resistance, and stiff straw, which was easy to combine.Limagrain UK said it had been working with Warburtons and its supplier, the British farming co-operative Openfield, from an early stage to establish the variety’s breadmaking credentials.Tudor Dawkins, technical manager at Openfield for Warburtons growers, said the variety can be grown as a first or second wheat, with a yield and protein content ahead of Solstice and another breadmaker Gallant.Its disease resistance is especially strong against yellow rust and mildew, while it has the highest resistance on the HGCA Recommended List with a score of 7 compared with a 5 for Solstice and Gallant, he added.last_img read more

Dean Ween Sits In With Primus For “Southbound Pachyderm” Encore [Audio]

first_imgOn Friday night, Primus continued their tour with a performance at The Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park. To end their show, the trio invited frequent collaborator and friend Dean Ween—also known as Mickey Melchiondo—of Ween fame to join them for their encore of “Southbound Pachyderm.” Ween, who was already in attendance of the performance, hopped on stage for this final number, shredding through the heavy, thirteen-minute show-closing jam.Ween Plays Their 1997 Album “The Mollusk” In Full For Oregon Crowd [Videos] [H/T JamBuzz] The collaboration was a surprise though certainly not unprecedented. In the past, Les Claypool and Deaner have frequently traded sit-ins, with last year alone seeing Melchiondo guesting with The Claypool Lennon Delirium in August while Claypool joined The Dean Ween Group back in June. Outside of the realm of music, Claypool and Gene are also known for their long-standing friendship, including their love of fish (no “Ph”).Take a listen to Friday’s collaboration between Primus and Dean Ween below, courtesy of Beavis.last_img read more

Garry Marshall Says Pretty Woman Musical is ‘A Year Away’

first_img Marshall, producer Paula Wagner and screenwriter J.F. Lawton are all working on the show. Although Marshall is most famous for his film work, he is no stranger to the stage and recently helmed Billy & Ray off-Broadway. Well color us happy, the stage adaptation is on its way! Garry Marshall has revealed that the previously reported Pretty Woman musical is “a year away but Disney’s behind it.” The legendary director told Deadline: “We’ve had a couple of little readings of it with temporary music, and it’s not bad. It’s still a darn good story.” View Comments Remind yourself how much fun a hooker romantic comedy can be below. The blockbuster movie, which memorably paired Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, follows the story of a Hollywood streetwalker and the corporate tycoon who hires her—and then falls for her. Think Pygmalion and My Fair Lady but with big hair and sleazy attire.last_img read more

How one education credit union is improving process with a unique debit card program

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr As  teachers and students wrap up an “always-too-short” summer and return to their familiar routine at school, one credit union decided to think out-of-the-box and deliver more than an apple to their school district’s teachers. The Utah State Legislature annually issues grants to school districts for commonly needed classroom supplies. Teachers are allocated hundreds of dollars each year so as to meet the unique educational requirements of their respective course curriculums. With district oversight, teachers may spend funds on a variety of supplies benefiting their students. Historically, teachers would purchase supplies from their personal account followed by a reimbursement request submitted to the district.Receiving its legislative allocation for the fiscal year 2015, Granite School District officials recognized the program’s inefficiencies and formed a committee seeking to improve the operative process. Chief among their stated objectives – streamline:Acquisition of classroom suppliesReimbursementTransparency of fund allocation continue reading »last_img read more

Ex-Manchester United striker Berbatov says Liverpool fully deserve title

first_imgFormer Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov said their traditional foes Liverpool deserve to be crowned Premier League champions and it would be unfair on the Anfield side if the season cannot be completed due to the coronavirus outbreak.The campaign has been suspended with the league saying it was keeping the restart date under “constant review”.Liverpool, who have a 25-point advantage over reigning champions Manchester City and nine games left, need six more points to guarantee lifting their first title in 30 years. “People are suggesting to give the title to Liverpool, and honestly they deserve it the way they had been playing, nobody was going to catch them,” Berbatov, who scored 56 goals in four seasons at United told Betfair.”With the way they play their games, the football they produced and how far they are in front, they fully deserve the title this season.”While there has been speculation about a reduced season or even abandoning the campaign, the Premier League said the aim was still to complete all remaining league and cup matches.”However, any return to play will only be with the full support of Government and when medical guidance allows,” the league said in a statement on Friday.Ex-Bulgaria striker Berbatov, who also played for Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham in the English top flight, said he did not know which decision about completing the season would be the right one, adding “whatever is decided won’t be so popular”.In 2010 Berbatov became the first United player to score a hat-trick against arch-rivals Liverpool in 64 years as the home side enjoyed a thrilling 3-2 victory at Old Trafford.”It’s so strange, and it will be unfair on them (Liverpool) if the season is voided, they will be so disappointed,” he said.Topics :last_img read more
