UGA Southeast Research and Education Center to host Midville Field Day – Yahoo News

Jul. 31—ATHENS — The University of Georgia Southeast Research and Education Center (SEREC) will host its annual field day from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Aug. 10.
The annual event is an open house tour of current research projects taking place at the center where College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences faculty will highlight the work they are doing in cotton, peanuts, soybeans, corn, small grains and cover crops.
"I always look forward to this day," SEREC Superintendent Anthony Black said. "It's an opportunity to meet growers and show them production practices they can apply to improve their own operations and demonstrate how their commodity check-off dollars are being used to fund research that supports sustainable food production."
Established in 1951 as the Southeast Georgia Branch Experiment Station, the facility's mission was to research agricultural practices on a management scale large enough to accurately assess costs and returns for various commodities that could be adapted to the local soils and dry climate of the upper Coastal Plain region.
Today, the 720-acre facility has more than 60 ongoing research projects, with an emphasis on the efficient use of water.
"It'll most likely be hot, but attendees will ride canopied trams during the tour with cold water at hand," Black said. "We'll have a catered barbecue lunch during a noon program that will take place in a covered area with fans, so we do what we can to make sure this is a comfortable and educational event, as always."
Video footage of the 2021 Midville Field Day is available at Topics for the 2022 event will include variety evaluations, wildlife field border management, cover crop management, fertility management, creating pollinator habitats, precision agriculture research and variable rate timing for forage production.
In full, this year's scheduled presentations and speakers include:
—Soybean cultivar development for drought tolerance, Zenglu Li;
—Statewide variety testing program at Midville, Daniel Mailhot and Dusty Dunn;
—Soil health and fertility, Henry Sintim;

There was no reported damage in a western Philippine region where debris from the final stage of a rocket that launched part of China’s new space station reportedly fell, a Filipino official said Monday. Philippine Space Agency official Marc Talampas said authorities have been advised to be on the lookout for rocket debris, which may have fallen into the ocean off Palawan province. “We are monitoring the situation and have also issued an advisory to the public to be vigilant, avoid contact with any suspected floating debris and to report to local authorities immediately,” Talampas told The Associated Press.

As the pandemic drags on, cleaning up indoor air has become a passion project not just for aerosol scientists and epidemiologists, but for citizens.
A Chinese rocket fell back to Earth on Saturday over the Indian Ocean but NASA said Beijing had not shared the "specific trajectory information" needed to know where possible debris might fall. U.S. Space Command said the Long March 5B rocket re-entered over the Indian Ocean at approximately 12:45 p.m. EDT Saturday (1645 GMT), but referred questions about "reentry’s technical aspects such as potential debris dispersal impact location" to China. "All spacefaring nations should follow established best practices and do their part to share this type of information in advance to allow reliable predictions of potential debris impact risk," NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said.

Generally speaking, if you find yourself at the business end of a tentacled beast, you’re going to have a bad time. That was certainly the case for the residents of Perfection, Nevada in the movie Tremors. There, great underground monsters called Graboids hunted anything that moved, latching onto prey with multiple tentacle-like tongues. Tentacled monsters aren’t just for the big screen, however, they might also have been the earliest predators to ever hunt other species in the ancient oceans. A

Something as simple as drinking tap water is exposing millions of Illinoisans to toxic chemicals that build up in human blood, cause cancer and other diseases and take years to leave the body. Scientists call the chemicals per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances or PFAS. They are commonly known as forever chemicals because they don’t break down in the environment.
