Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address See all posts by T Sligo Image source: Getty Images Picture it: you have £2,000 spare. No small amount by any means.Certainly, it’s too much money to gamble away. You’ll want to make sure that this much cash is working for you, invested with a level of risk-to-reward ratio that you’re comfortable with.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…When it comes to investing, there are many options. I’ve broken down some of the most common, and what I think could be the best solution for this amount of money.Cash ISAA tax-efficient Cash ISA is often hailed as being one of the safer places to stash your money.It’s true that you probably won’t make a paper loss by putting your money into a Cash ISA. But the danger here comes from somewhere else.Quoted interest rates for Cash ISAs have been so low, for so long. My concern is that any money stuck in a Cash ISA won’t keep up with the rate of real-life inflation. This is especially important for those of us who are investing for the long term.Although a Cash ISA might be deemed a low-risk form of investing, I think this is a red herring. The level of reward is so low that your buying power in the long term could be eradicated. I believe this makes it quite risky.BitcoinBitcoin sits at the other end of the spectrum. Its risk-to-reward ratio is incredibly high.That’s because it has no tangible assets, making it incredibly difficult to value. Buying it is pure speculation.I believe that Bitcoin is a bubble, just waiting to burst. This was highlighted in 2017, when its value soared as more and more people jumped aboard the bandwagon.Bitcoin could be a dangerous asset, and with a nice sum like £2,000, I think the money is better suited elsewhere.Stocks and Shares ISAAlthough still tax-efficient, a Stocks and Shares ISA is quite different from the cash variety.As the name suggests, an investor is able to invest their money in stocks and shares in this account, and the first £20,000 in the year is tax-free.The benefit here is that the investor can pick their own stocks and funds, hopefully out-growing the low interest rates from a Cash ISA, but at a lesser risk than Bitcoin.With a sum like £2,000, picking individual shares might be unwise, as it will be hard to build up adequate diversification. The transactional fees can soon add up too, eroding any return on investment.The best idea might be to invest in index funds. These can track your chosen market, aiming to replicate its returns.Another idea would be to invest in something like Vanguard’s LifeStrategy 80/20 fund, which is modelled on a portfolio of 80% worldwide index funds and 20% bonds.When it comes to putting £2,000 to work, I believe the best idea for the long term is to invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA. Chosen right, it could have your desired risk-to-reward ratio.

Barclays (LSE: BARC) shares dipped a little on results day last Thursday, which often happens if the figures don’t quite match up to hopes. But the Barclays share price has since bounced back. The bank has been near the top of my Stocks & Shares ISA candidates list for years. Should I finally buy? These short-term ups and downs don’t mean much to long-term investors. And though Barclays shares have gained 68% since September, we’re still looking at a 15% drop over the past 12 months. That’s worse than the 10.5% FTSE 100 fall over the same period. So why the relative underperformance?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…For me, part of the reason ties in with what I see as the biggest risk right now. And it might be the cause of the market’s hesitation over the results. I’m talking of bad debts, and the banking sector is awash with them.As a result of the pandemic, Barclays has recorded impairment charges of £4.8bn. I wasn’t expecting a figure that big. And I’m not surprised the Barclays share price took a minor hit after investors saw it.The impairment trend does appear to be improving though, with the fourth quarter’s charge coming in 19% below Q3. And there was one significant piece of encouraging news — Barclays announced a full-year dividend. It’s only 1p per share, and it wasn’t unexpected. But it’s a start.Banking sector weaknessWe remember how well the banking sector performed after dividends were reintroduced after the financial crash, don’t we? Oh, hang on, it didn’t do very well at all. No, the Barclays share price has fallen 9.5% over the past five years. And it’s down 48% over 10 years.For me, when deciding whether to add Barclays shares to my investment portfolio, what matters is the bank’s long-term prospects. That’s post-Brexit Britain, something that the Covid-19 pandemic has pushed to the back of my mind from time to time. And I have to remind myself that the future of UK banking still looks very uncertain.From an investment perspective, I don’t worry too much about the economy in 2021. I’m more interested in how things will look in 2026, and in 2031 and beyond. The way some people talk, we could be forgiven for assuming we’ll bounce right back to 2019 levels of relative prosperity the moment we’ve all had our vaccinations. But I’m not that optimistic, and foresee a few tough years ahead.Barclays share price valuationTaking into account my cautious economic outlook, how does the Barclays share price look? I can’t help seeing a lot of pessimism still built into it, and I think it could actually be good value. Analysts are forecasting double-digit earnings growth for the current year. And Barclays’ price-to-tangible-asset-value is only around 0.5 — which looks cheap.At the current Barclays share price, I find myself torn. But I think I’ll keep away for two key reasons. One is that I already own banking shares in Lloyds Banking Group, which is probably enough sector exposure. The other is that I think there are better buys out there, facing less uncertainty.And being over 60, I prefer less risk these days.

Rector Knoxville, TN Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Shreveport, LA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 December 7, 2012 at 10:18 am Immediately following the affirmation about belief in scripture and part of the same oath is the statement ” I do solemnly engage to conform to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of the [Protestant] Episcopal Church [in the United States of America.” This is ALL part of a single declaration signed at the beginning of the service. One part is not privileged above another. Lawrence has violated the “discipline” of the church in multiple ways. The people of South Carolina who voted to disassociate did so contrary to the constitution of TEC. There has never been a right of secession. No rights were reserved by dioceses when they acceded to the constitution and canons. The first constitution of TEC (1789) “bound” all states (they did not use the term diocese anywhere in the document) to all acts of General Convention whether they were present at the convention or not.If you are going to use the name of the presiding bishop, at least get it right. Her last surname is Jefferts Schori. Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Tampa, FL Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY December 6, 2012 at 5:13 pm It is hard for me to fathom what Bishop Lawrence is saying or meaning. or what he feels he is accomplishing. I suspect he is in the same fix. Many years ago, a guest on the Jack Paar Show said of someone that “He has put one rump on several horses and is riding off in several different directions.” One clear direction of the Bishop, and others who are discontent with The Episcopal Church, is their path of militancy away from the path of ministry. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA December 6, 2012 at 11:47 am Between Oct. 15 (the suspension) and Dec. 5 Lawrence provided abundant evidence in word and deed that he had renounced all ties to the Episcopal Church. He said repeatedly he had left the Episcopal Church and “moved on.” The events of the meeting on Nov. 17 documented it all. In the view of the PB and her advisory council of the leaders of all the provinces of TEC, his act of “disassociation” was in fact renunciation. Common sense says she is right. One cannot be out of the Episcopal Church and in it too. At the moment he and his followers should be rejoicing in their independence, there is no joy. His letter acknowledging his deposition of 12-5 is a sad ramble. Andy Hook says: Jason VanBorssum says: Submit a Job Listing December 6, 2012 at 5:33 pm When the Diocese of South Carolina elected Mark Lawrence the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Arizona declined to consent to his election. South Carolina requested reconsideration of that refusal and once again Arizona declined, helping to deny Lawrence the election. South Carolina held another election designed to reaffirm their initial choice of Lawrence and once again Arizona refused consent. Each refusal was based on the sense that Lawrence, active as he was in the polity of the Diocese of San Joaquin, was quite likely sooner or later to find himself unwilling to accept the Episcopal Church’s teaching and discipline. The repeated decisions of Arizona’s Standing Committee were based on Mark Lawrence’s words and deeds as priest in San Joaquin and episcopal candidate in South Carolina. And no, it doesn’t give me joy to be proven right.

We left in protest of someone who we saw as elitist, bigoted and exclusionary. Someone who is NOT practicing Christian love, but promoting hate while at the same time attempting to personally elevate himself to the status of God, in every definition a cult leader who requires unconditional devotion and authority.

December 6, 2012 at 8:12 pm Clearly the Diocese of South Carolina expressed the will of its membership, both at the time of the election of Dr. Lawrence and through the actions of the Standing Committee to disassociate with TEC. It isn’t only Dr. Lawrence who has rejected unscriptural teachings on the part of TEC, and Dr. Schori in particular.The first of the ordination vows each bishop has taken is an affirmation that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God. The examination includes the promise to boldly proclaim and interpret the Gospel of Christ – including John 14:6, expressly rejected by the teachings of Dr. Schori.The most likely way to select bishops with unqualified loyalty to a church hierarchy, even in the context of unscriptural teachings, is to have them appointed by and wholly subordinate to a single individual in the manner of the Roman Catholic church – not elected by the local diocese and ratified by standing committees and bishops, with all bishops serving as equals. [Episcopal News Service] Mark Lawrence, who led some of the members of the Diocese of South Carolina out of the Episcopal Church, has said he remains the bishop of the diocese, and called Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori’s Dec. 5 decision to accept his renunciation of orders as “superfluous.”“Quite simply I have not renounced my orders as a deacon, priest or bishop any more than I have abandoned the Church of Jesus Christ — But as I am sure you are aware, the Diocese of South Carolina has canonically and legally disassociated from The Episcopal Church,” Lawrence said in a letter posted on the diocese’s website after the presiding bishop’s announcement. “We took this action long before today’s attempt at renunciation of orders, therein making it superfluous.”Lawrence said that Jefferts Schori called him that day to tell him that she and her Council of Advice had accepted his renunciation made, they said, “in his public address on November 17.” Lawrence said he “listened quietly, asked a question or two and then told her it was good to hear her voice.”“I did not feel any need to argue or rebut. It is the presiding bishop’s crossing of the T and doting of the I — or their paper work, not my life,” Lawrence said.He said he thought it would not change anything to bring up to Jefferts Schori what he views as “the canonical problems with what they have done contrary to the canons of The Episcopal Church.”“She and her advisers will say I have said what I have not said in ways that I have not said them even while they cite words from my Bishop’s Address of November 17, 2012,” he said.In that Nov. 17 speech to a special diocesan convention, Lawrence said the diocese had left the Episcopal Church a month earlier when Jefferts Schori restricted his ministry on Oct. 17 after the church’s Disciplinary Board for Bishops had certified to her that he had abandoned the Episcopal Church “by an open renunciation of the discipline of the church.” On that same day, the diocesan Standing Committee announced that the action of the Disciplinary Board “triggered two pre-existing corporate resolutions of the diocese, which simultaneously disaffiliated the diocese from the Episcopal Church and called a special convention.”Lawrence asked for and received affirmation from those at the convention of that departure.According to a fact sheet posted on the Episcopal Church’s website: “Dioceses cannot leave the Episcopal Church. While some clergy and individuals may choose to leave, congregations and property remain in the diocese to be used for the mission of the Episcopal Church.”Lawrence ended his letter by asserting that “the majority of Anglicans around the world as well as many in North America … have expressed in so many ways that they consider me an Anglican Bishop in good standing and consider this Diocese of South Carolina to be part of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. “The decision to accept Lawrence’s renunciation cited Title III, Canon 12, Section 7 which begins by saying “If any Bishop of this Church shall declare, in writing, to the Presiding Bishop a renunciation of the ordained Ministry of this Church, and a desire to be removed therefrom, it shall be the duty of the Presiding Bishop to record the declaration and request so made.”The process is not without precedent. On the same day four years ago, Jefferts Schori and the council accepted Bishop Jack Iker’s renunciation of orders in much the same way after he led many of the lay and clergy members of that diocese out of the Episcopal Church, making public statements to that effect.In October 2009, Jefferts Schori accepted written statements from Keith Ackerman about his orders.Ackerman had abruptly announced his retirement as bishop of the Diocese of Quincy, effective Nov. 1, 2008, the day he was to return from a three-month sabbatical. It was also the day the governing synod voted to sever ties with the Episcopal Church and to realign the 1,800-member diocese with the Argentina-based Anglican Province of the Southern Cone. Ackerman told the presiding bishop he intended to function as a bishop in the Diocese of Bolivia in the Southern Cone.“As you know, there is no provision for transferring a bishop to another province. I am therefore releasing you from the obligations of ordained ministry in this church,” Jefferts Schori wrote at the time.Jefferts Schori and the church’s bishops dealt differently with the bishops of two other dioceses who led the majority of their members out of the Episcopal Church.In 2008, the House of Bishops authorized Jefferts Schori to depose then-Diocese of San Joaquin bishop John David Schofield and then-Diocese of Pittsburgh Bishop Robert Duncan from ordained ministry and remove them as bishops after it was determined that they had “abandoned the Communion of this Church.”Duncan also initially affiliated with the Southern Cone, but later became the leader of the Anglican Church in North America.All four dioceses are rebuilding and the remaining Episcopalians in the Diocese of South Carolina have been organizing to do the same.– The Rev.

Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Edmond (Oklahoma)] Alors que le soleil commençait à se coucher le 12 juillet à Oklahoma City, les jeunes de l’Église épiscopale se sont rassemblés par diocèse pour une procession depuis la Cathédrale St. Paul à quelque centaines de mètres au sud du Monument commémoratif national d’Oklahoma City sur North Robinson Avenue pour une cérémonie aux chandelles.La cérémonie faisait suite à une visite ce même jour du musée commémoratif qui retrace la chronologie depuis les trente minutes avant l’attentat à la bombe du 19 avril 1995 qui a tué 168 personnes et blessé 680 autres, jusqu’à l’exécution de Timothy McVeigh.« La manière dont c’est présenté, vous avancez dans le temps et c’est quelque chose de stupéfiant », déclare Kiera Campbell, âgée de 16 ans, du Diocèse d’Olympia, membre du comité de planification d’EYE17 (Episcopal Youth Event 2017 – Événement pour la Jeunesse épiscopale 2017). « Il est étonnant de voir comment une ville entière s’est mobilisée et a été capable de trouver la paix en son sein ».Mille trois cents jeunes de 109 diocèses de l’Église épiscopale ont participé au 13e EYE qui s’est tenu du 10 au 14 juillet à l’University of Central Oklahoma d’Edmond, à une vingtaine de minutes en voiture d’Oklahoma City. Les Béatitudes et tout particulièrement Matthieu 5:9 – « Heureux ceux qui font œuvre de paix : ils seront appelés fils de Dieu » – ont inspiré le thème d’EYE17 intitulé « Voie vers la paix ». (Certains jeunes de la Province IX, des diocèses d’Amérique latine et des Caraïbes étaient absents car ils se sont vu refuser leur visa d’entrée aux États-Unis).Les adolescents qui participaient à EYE17 à Edmond (État d’Oklahoma) se sont rendu le 12 juillet au Monument et Musée commémoratifs nationaux d’Oklahoma City. Ici, ils visitent la Galerie d’honneur où des photographies des 168 personnes, dont 19 enfants, ornent les murs. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceLa veille au soir avant la visite du musée et la cérémonie, des survivants de l’attentat à la bombe ont partagé leur expérience personnelle avec les jeunes au cours d’une séance plénière sur le campus. Au cours de la cérémonie aux chandelles, les jeunes étaient assis les jambes croisées dans l’herbe face à 168 chaises vides dont 19 plus petites pour les enfants, chacune représentant une des victimes. Entre deux piliers affichant les chiffres 9h01 et 9h03, un bassin réfléchissant mettait en lumière 9h02, la minute où a explosé le camion piégé qui a détruit le bâtiment fédéral Alfred P. Murrah.Plus encore que l’histoire, c’était la réponse humaine et son impact inoubliable dont l’évêque d’Oklahoma Ed Konieczny souhaitait que les jeunes s’imprègnent. L’attentat à la bombe, a-t-il déclaré, a rassemblé le peuple d’Oklahoma dans un esprit d’unité, dans ce qui est devenu la « Norme en Oklahoma », norme qui continue aujourd’hui.« Si vous venez en Oklahoma et que vous devenez un résident d’Oklahoma, [ce récit] va faire partie de qui vous êtes car à bien des égards c’est un événement charnière, non seulement pour Oklahoma City mais pour tout l’État » poursuit Ed Konieczny, qui était prêtre au Texas au moment de l’attentat à la bombe. « C’est malheureux qu’il en soit ainsi mais il a fallu cela pour donner de l’énergie et mettre en lumière la bonté des habitants d’Oklahoma City et de l’État d’Oklahoma… et cela n’a pas cessé ».Les photos des victimes ornent la Galerie d’honneur, la dernière exposition du Monument & Musée commémoratifs nationaux d’Oklahoma City. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceAlors même que ces jeunes n’étaient pas encore nés en 1995 – leur tranche d’âge allait de 13 à 18 ans –, ils vivent dans un monde de plus en plus violent. C’est pour cette raison qu’Ed Konieczny souhaitait co-accueillir EYE17 dans son diocèse et partager l’histoire d’Oklahoma City comme un exemple de paix et de résilience.« L’événement est pertinent car il les aide à voir toutes les autres choses qui se passent dans notre monde et notre société et les autres actes de violence qui ont lieu, que ce soit Columbine, Virginia Tech ou la Floride. Il semble que chaque jour il se passe autre chose, parfois important, parfois mineur », explique-t-il. « J’espère que la conclusion est que nous, en tant que société, allons faire quelque chose à ce sujet. Et ils ont la capacité de le faire … Le message ne va pas être l’attentat. Le message à retenir est un message de vie et nous allons placer notre foi là où elle doit être, nous allons lutter pour la justice et dire non, nous n’allons pas vivre de cette façon, nous allons agir différemment ».Répondre à la violence et à la haine par l’amour était au plus profond du message de la Voie vers la paix.« La réalité est que la haine ne fonctionne pas et que la violence ne fonctionne pas. Les êtres humains ont été créés par amour parce que je suis convaincu que Dieu est amour, que nous sommes là pour aimer et que la vie ne fonctionne que lorsque nous aimons. Et ce monument est un douloureux rappel que la haine fait souffrir et fait mal et que nous ne sommes pas faits pour cela, a déclaré l’Évêque Primat Michael Curry, sur le site commémoratif. « Nous sommes mis sur cette terre pour trouver une meilleure voie. Pour trouver la vie et l’amour pour tous et le fait de venir voir ce monument et d’être ici aujourd’hui est une occasion pour nous de nous consacrer et dédier à nouveau à la création d’un monde où règne l’amour ».Il y a aussi eu des moments ludiques à EYE17.

Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceIl y a un an, le comité de planification d’EYE17 qui comprend 16 jeunes est venu à Oklahoma City et a visité le musée et le monument commémoratifs pour se faire une idée de ce qu’allait être l’expérience de leurs camarades. Il est immédiatement apparu clairement que l’histoire d’Oklahoma City est quelque chose que « tout un chacun a besoin d’entendre », a déclaré Andrés Gonzalez Bonilla, âgé de 16 ans, du Diocèse d’Arizona, qui faisait partie de l’équipe qui a planifié la liturgie et la musique. La réponse de la ville à un acte de terrorisme interne est « une histoire certes tragique mais aussi belle et émouvante ».« L’équipe de planification de la mission d’EYE a commencé il y a plus de 18 mois à imaginer ce que serait l’événement. Ils l’ont axé sur les écritures selon Matthieu et les Béatitudes », a expliqué Bronwyn Clark Skov, chargée au sein de l’Église épiscopale de la formation, de la jeunesse et des jeunes adultes, qui supervise le ministère de la jeunesse. « Nous sommes véritablement frappés par tout cet ensemble, mais aussi, en raison de ce qui se passe dans le monde, nous sommes focalisés sur « heureux ceux qui font œuvre de paix ».L’événement triennal de la jeunesse, mandat de la Convention générale de l’église, a attiré 1 400 personnes en tout, dont 35 évêques ainsi que des accompagnateurs, des aumôniers, des bénévoles du secteur médical et d’autres secteurs. Chaque prédicateur, intervenant, exposant et séance pratique a traité le thème d’une manière ou d’une autre.L’Évêque Primat Michael Curry a prêché et présidé le service eucharistique d’ouverture d’EYE17. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceMichael Curry a prêché au cours du service eucharistique d’ouverture du 11 juillet puis, plus tard ce même jour, a proposé deux ateliers l’un après l’autre sur le « Mouvement de Jésus », suivis de questions-réponses. D’autres intervenants, dont la révérende Gay Clark Jennings, présidente de la Chambre des Députés, des évêques, des membres du personnel de l’Église épiscopale, des représentants d’Episcopal Relief & Development, de Forma, d’Episcopal Service Corps et d’autres ont proposé des ateliers allant de la défense des droits à la vie dans des communautés intentionnelles comme exemple de voie vers la paix, en passant par la communication non violente dans un monde violent.« Je pense que la « Voie vers la paix » a été articulée de nombreuses manières différentes au cours de cet événement et j’ai espoir que cela a été suffisamment contagieux pour que, lorsque tous ces jeunes repartent chez eux, ils commencent à parler de leur expérience ici et de ce qu’ils y ont appris afin qu’ils se sentent le pouvoir de véritablement agir sur leur propre désir de ce qui est bon et droit et le don reçu de Dieu pour faire quelque chose, explique Bronwyn Skov.Au cours d’une conférence de presse le 11 juillet, Trevor Mahan du Diocèse du Kansas, membre du comité de planification, a dit que les jeunes avaient intentionnellement conçu l’événement de manière à ce que les jeunes fassent connaissance avec les dirigeants de l’Église et de l’Église épiscopale au sens large, en leur offrant les moyens d’une plus grande participation à tous les niveaux.Mme Campbell, du Diocèse d’Olympia, tout comme Trevor Mahan au sein de l’équipe de planification, en est convenue.« Nous voulons que les gens puissent repartir chez eux et se connecter avec d’autres organisations épiscopales, a-t-elle déclaré et rapporter le message de la Voie vers la paix afin d’encourager d’autres jeunes à s’impliquer.Ed Konieczny place un réel espoir dans les jeunes d’aujourd’hui qui sont beaucoup plus inclusifs que les générations précédentes. La composition d’EYE17, le groupe le plus diversifié qui ait jamais existé, en apporte la preuve.« Comme je l’ai dit au cours de mon homélie lors de la cérémonie aux chandelles, les jeunes d’aujourd’hui peuvent faire une différence réelle dans le monde », a-t-il déclaré.« Ils en sont à un stade maintenant où ils établissent la façon dont leur génération va vivre ensemble et on peut déjà voir le niveau d’acceptation, d’inclusion et de volonté de vivre dans la diversité et de respecter l’autre. Et cela n’a pas toujours été le cas pour les générations précédentes ; ici c’est nous et là c’est eux et nous gardons simplement nos distances », explique Konieczny.EYE20 est déjà en cours de préparation avec l’aide d’une subvention du Constable Fund. l’Église épiscopale prévoit d’organiser l’événement en Amérique latine.– Lynette Wilson est rédactrice en chef de l’Episcopal News Service.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Moving from Precision Ag to Decision Ag Facebook Twitter BASF was just one of several companies who were demonstrating data analysis products at Commodity Classic. It is clear that the era of big data is evolving from just collecting information to sophisticated, cloud-based, real-time analysis of what is happening in a field or on a whole farm. “Farming is a dynamic business that requires the management of a wide range of data,” said Paul Rea, Senior Vice President, Crop Protection, North America, BASF. “Through Maglis, BASF will work with farmers to further personalize their experience, and enable them to develop a complete plan tailored for each growing season and ultimately achieve their operational goals.” By Gary Truitt – Mar 6, 2016 SHARE RapeseedsThrough Maglis Customer Navigator, BASF Innovation Specialists can guide crop-related discussions with farmers, providing a platform to offer better agronomic advice. During these discussions, farmers gain more insight critical to both big-picture and field-specific farm decisions. “Every day I strive to better connect with farmers to understand the issues that matter most to them,” said Neil Doherty, the BASF Innovation Specialist who works with Stateline Farms. “With Maglis Customer Navigator, I can have stronger, more impactful conversations with farmers, and together we can form a specific crop recommendation to help that farmer achieve maximum success.” He told HAT the learning curve on the Maglis system was not hard, and he is hoping that as the system evolves it will become even easier to use. He is looking forward to the next phase of the system which will collect data wirelessly from the equipment so that manual input will not be needed. Facebook Twitter Ploughed fieldThis year he made the move to Maglis, a new system from BASF. It’s a program that analyzes all aspects of his operation and helps him make a variety of crop decisions, “We spend as much time on the data analysis as we do on anything else. With a tool like Maglis, once we have a plan in place or a decision made, it helps us communicate that information to everyone in our operation as well as all the other people we work with.” The system lets him share data on what products to apply, when to apply them, and at what rate to his employees as well as his seed dealer, fertilizer dealer, and others. Moving from Precision Ag to Decision Ag Moving from Precision Ag to Decision Ag Ben MooreNew tools for making decisions based on farm data were the big story at the Commodity Classic trade show which concluded over the weekend in New Orleans. Hoosier Ag Today found one Indiana farmer who has discovered this new technology has revolutionized his farming operation. Ben Moore operates Stateline farms, a 7,000-acre grain and soybean operation on the Indiana/Ohio border. He has been collecting data about his operation for over 2 decades, “We started with a yield monitor on the combine in 1995, and we have increased every year since them. We move moved to the auto steer and variable rate seeding. We have found big benefits from using this data.” Previous articleAgriculture Companies Predicting Weaker Sales to FarmersNext articleNational Labeling can Help Assure Consumers Biotech Crops are Safe Gary Truitt SHARE Moore says Maglis not only helps them put together a comprehensive plan that involves all aspects of the operation, but it also lets them make adjustments and react faster to the unexpected surprises that a growing season can bring, “That is what is really nice about this system is that we can update the plan and then get that information to everyone who needs it quickly and accurately.” Moore said the key is to have boots on the ground, scouting fields and updating the information in the system. This allows Maglis to give him a real time picture of what is happening on his operation.
