In some areas we are running over 400 units behind the 10 year average.” He also stated that soybean yields, while good, were hurt by the lack of rain in August.

Eric Miller, with DuPont Pioneer, says yields are continuing to come in above expectations, “Yield results for both corn and soybeans are coming in well above grower expectations, especially given the kind of planting and growing season we have had.” Miller says, despite very different planning dates, most fields have evened up as the season has gone along. However, moisture content remains an issue, “In the areas where we had replanting or late planted crops, harvest moisture levels are running a good 10 points above the earlier planted crops.” He added that vastly different growth stages were an issue this summer, but the warm and dry September weather has pushed all crops toward maturity quickly.last_img read more

Lipsitt, a researcher with the Fielding School’s UCLA Center for Healthy Climate Solutions. “In addition, Black and Latinx people have higher rates of pre-existing conditions, potentially further exacerbating the risk of COVID-19 transmission and death. The elevated risk of case incidence and mortality observed in these populations may result, in part, from higher exposure to air pollution.”The research team, from UCLA’s Fielding School, UC Berkeley and UC Merced, analyzed the relationship of air pollution and COVID-19 case incidence, mortality and case-fatality rates in neighborhoods of Los Angeles County. They focused on nitrogen dioxide because the pollutant serves as a marker for traffic-related air pollution, or TRAP, generally.“We know that TRAP is associated with many respiratory morbidities, including asthma, chronic pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and respiratory tract infections, as well as hospitalizations, mortality and an increased risk of respiratory viral infection,” said Dr. Yifang Zhu, FSPH professor of environmental health sciences and senior associate dean for academic programs. “Nitrogen dioxide, for example, has been found to impair the function of alveolar macrophages and epithelial cells, thereby increasing the risk of lung infections.”The work reaches down to the city- and neighborhood-level in Los Angeles County, home to more than 10 million people, a population larger than 40 U.S. states. 13 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Business News Top of the News last_img read more
