Players are not robots, they need to have a break.“Harry Kane is perhaps the best example of that – playing so many games for Tottenham and then playing until the World Cup semi-final with England.” 2 Harry Kane was top scorer at the World Cup with six goals – ahead of five players who all scored four 2 He will now have a break before beginning his preparation for the new Premier League campaign – which is only three weeks away, with Spurs facing a trip to Newcastle United on Saturday August 11.Kane told the media when he arrived home with the rest of the England squad on Sunday that he was planning to take two weeks off before returning to Spurs, saying that his next goal is to break his unwanted record of not scoring in the league in August.But Ginola believes Tottenham should give their homegrown hero extra time off to ensure he is fully rested and fighting fit for a big campaign for the club.Asked if Kane should be rested for Spurs’ first few games, Ginola told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I think so.“The new Premier League season is starting pretty soon and obviously Harry Kane will need a break, like most of the players who have played a lot of games. Kane is keen to end his record of never scoring in the league in August Harry Kane should be rested by Tottenham for the start of the new Premier League campaign after England’s run at the World Cup took his appearance total to almost 60 games this season.That’s according to former Spurs star David Ginola, who told talkSPORT the Three Lions captain needs an extended break after helping his country to the semi-finals in Russia.Kane has played a mammoth 59 games for club and country over the past season – scoring a sensational 52 goals.The 24-year-old was also top scorer at the World Cup with six goals in six games – becoming only the second England player to win the Golden Boot after ex-Tottenham striker Gary Lineker in 1986.last_img read more

N deficiency showing up

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Due to heavy rainfall and saturated soils during the 2017 growing season, it is not surprising to see some signs of nitrogen deficiency showing up in corn fields across Seed Consultants’ sales footprint. Whether applied preplant or sidedressed, patterns of heavy rainfall and wet soils increase the likelihood of nitrogen being lost. Because nitrogen is an essential nutrient for corn plant development and ultimately yield, losses will impact final yields this fall.When saturated conditions persist, nitrogen can be lost though leaching or denitrification. Leaching (more likely to occur in course-textured soils) is the process where nitrogen is moved down through the soil profile and out of the root zone where it is not available to plants. The severity of nitrogen loss due to leaching is impacted the intensity and duration of rainfall. Denitrification is the process where soil nitrogen is biologically converted to gaseous nitrogen and lost to the atmosphere. During denitrification, microorganisms break down soil nitrogen and convert it to nitrogen gas when soil is saturated and oxygen is limited.Nitrogen deficiency symptoms initially appear as a “V” shaped yellowing on lower leaves that begins at the tip and progresses toward the stalk. Nitrogen deficiency can also cause ears with tip-back, poor kernel set, and shallow kernel development. Fields that have experience excessive rainfall, ponding, and saturated soils could be exhibiting the symptoms discussed above.While nitrogen deficiency can impact grain yield, another concern for eastern Corn Belt farmers this fall is stalk integrity. When nitrogen deficiencies exist, the corn plant will “cannibalize” its own stalk to produce an ear. As a result, stalks will be weakened and will be prone to lodging this fall. Fields where nitrogen deficiency has been observed should be harvested in a timely manner this fall to avoid harvest losses due to lodged corn plants.
