Councillor Gerry Crawford has called on Donegal County Council to carry out a review of all speed limit signs in the county.The Porthall-based Fianna Fáil Councillor says the Council must ensure that all speed signs are both visible and positioned correctly.Councillor Crawford highlighted an example at the entrance to the Ard Baithin housing estate in St Johnston. “A high number of road traffic collisions have been recorded at this location,” Councillor Crawford said.“I would call on all drivers to slow down and help improve road safety.“All of us have a part to play in our own safety and the safety of others.” Councillor calls for urgent review of speed limit signs was last modified: April 2nd, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Ard BaithinCouncillor Gerry CrawfordDonegal County Councilfianna failGerry CrawfordPorthallroad safetySt Johnston

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Many Ohio livestock were unable to apply their normal amounts of manure last fall due to wet weather and a delayed harvest season. As a result, many producers need to haul manure this spring before the planting season.The ammonium nitrogen and a portion of the organic nitrogen contained in spring applied manure are generally available for the growing crop. According to OSU Extension bulletin 604, 50 to 75 percent of the ammonia portion of the nitrogen could be captured if the manure is injected during application or incorporated within one day if surface applied. Approximately one-third of the organic portion of the manure nitrogen will be available regardless of whether the manure is incorporated or not.Table 16, OSU Extension Bulletin 604Ammonium N AvailableOrganic N Available Time of Application Days Until Incorporated NH4ON Date Days50%33%March – Aprilless than 325%33%March – Aprilgreater than 375%33%April – Juneless than 125% 33%April – June greater than 1Ohio State University Extension has conducted manure research on growing crops for several years in an effort to make better use of the available nutrients.The manure research trial in Table 1 was conducted over four years at the Northwest Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center’s Hoytville location. The swine manure application rate was 5,000 gallons per acre to get 200 units of available nitrogen. The dairy manure application rate was 13,577 gallons per acre to get 130 units of nitrogen. The dairy treatments received additional nitrogen as incorporated 28% UAN just prior to the manure application to reach the 200 unit goal. The 28% UAN treatments also received 200 units of nitrogen.Pre-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure or dairy manure were made within five days of corn planting. Post-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure and dairy manure were made at the V3 stage of corn growth. All manure applications were made with a 5,200 gallon tanker and Dietrich tool bar with the incorporated manure placed at a five inch depth. Surface manure was applied by using the Dietrich toolbar held just above ground level.Table 1. 2011 – 2014 Manure on Corn Research Plots OARDC Northwest Branch20112012201320144 year average bu/ac bu/ac bu/ac bu/ac bu/acPre-emergent treatmentsIncorporated 28%UAN138.1111.5184.6145.1144.8Incorporated swine manure 191.1 128.6 191.8 146.5 164.7Surface applied swine manure 180.9 109.5 175.7 137.2 150.8Incorporated dairy manure + 28%UAN 190.1 132.0 185.4 166.1 168.4Surface applied dairy manure + 28%UAN 184.5 97.0 166.0 141.9 147.4Post-emergent treatmentsIncorporated 28%UAN 132.7 116.0 181.9 140.9 142.9Incorporated swine manure 180.8 138.4 196.7 139.9 164.0Surface applied swine manure 178.0 116.4 188.0 115.6 149.5Incorporated dairy manure + 28%UAN 180.0 138.8 192.0 156.9 166.9Surface applied dairy manure + 28%UAN 170.5 101.6 181.5 125.3 144.7Zero nitrogen check 74.4 62.6 82.0 67.0 71.5Corn sidedress plots involving the use of a drag hose to apply the manure were conducted in 2014 and will be again in 2015. A drag hose reduces concerns about soil compaction associated with applying manure to growing crops while greatly improving the efficiency of the application process.
