Also on the itinerary were visits to a number of Enterprise Ireland client companies and the small matter of delivering a keynote Speech at the inaugural Gaeltech Conference in Gweedore where she shared a platform with Colm Lyon of Realex Payments.Recognising the important contribution to entrepreneurship development that The New Frontiers Programs make the itinerary included meetings at the New Frontiers Program in the North West which is/are is delivered at local level by Institutes of Technology / LYIT and funded by Enterprise Ireland.There were meetings with businesses in the newly extended CoLab Incubation Centre who impressed the visiting CEO with their strong value propositions and their clear demonstration of the potential for their businesses in international markets, resulting in employment creation in Ireland.As the first female CEO of Enterprise Ireland, Ms Sinnamon is an obvious proponent and supporter of ambitious businesswomen, not, she stresses, because she is a woman herself, but because she believes that Ireland needs to harness all our capabilities, to drive continued economic success, and women are under-represented and an under-utilised resource.  The women who met the CEO were certainly encouraged by her message. The hope is that they will be spurred to continue their innovation journey, driving their businesses forward in emerging knowledge sectors, in the North West Region.Ms Sinnamon’s visit to the North West is indicative of Enterprise Ireland’s regional development priorities and also the Government’s Regional Action Plan for Jobs, launched in February 2015, both aimed at encouraging communities and agencies in each region to work together to support regional job creation.ENTERPRISE IRELAND CEO HUGELY IMPRESSED BY INNOVATIVE BUSINESSES IN THE NORTH-WEST was last modified: September 15th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Businessnewslast_img read more

Dodder in western Ohio

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have had reports of dodder in some red clover fields. Dodder is a parasitic plant without any leaves or chlorophyll to produce its own energy. It lives by attaching to a host with small appendages (called ‘haustoria”), and extracting the host plant’s carbohydrates. The stems are yellow-orange, stringlike, twining, smooth and branching to form dense masses in infested fields. Although neither toxic nor unpalatable to some livestock, dodder can weaken host plants enough to reduce yield, quality, and stand. If infestations are severe enough, dodder may kill host plants.Dodders are annuals that spread by seed. Seed may be able to survive in the soil over 20 years. Controlling dodder with herbicides depends on the crop in which you wish to control it. Some herbicides may affect dodder, but also may affect the crop, or not be labeled for that use. In many cases, dodder control may be more effective if herbicides are applied before the plant attaches to the host. PRE applications of Kerb have provided good control of dodder in ornamentals and turf. Trifluralin and pendimethalin have also been reported to suppress dodder germination, but in most cases PRE applications will not retain enough residual activity to provide control for the rest of the season.Glyphosate has sometimes been reported to control dodder POST. It can be applied as a 1 to 2-percent spot treatment in alfalfa, but non Roundup Ready alfalfa will be injured or killed. A broadcast foliar application would be possible in Roundup Ready alfalfa. Raptor applied at 5 ounces per acre can suppress dodder when applied after dodder emergence, but before it is three inches tall. Pursuit also can suppress dodder after emergence, but as soon as dodder attaches to the host plant, becomes less effective. The Pursuit label recommends using it with COC or methylated seed oil when trying to suppress dodder.Other resources:http://ucce.ucdavis.edu/files/repositoryfiles/ca4304p30-68548.pdfhttp://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=9331https://www.btny.purdue.edu/WeedScience/2005/Dodder05.pdfhttps://www.naaic.org/Meetings/National/2002meeting/2002Abstracts/Reisen.pdf.last_img read more
