I think these are the best UK shares to buy now after the stock market crash

first_img The aftermath of a stock market crash provides an ideal buying opportunity for investors. With many share prices still depressed as a result of the sell-off, there’s an opportunity to go on a bargain hunt. What’s more, numerous companies are trading below their average historic valuations, offering a wide margin of safety for those investing today. With that in mind, here’s my verdict on the best UK shares to buy now.A second stock market crashBefore going any further, it’s important to note that a wider safety margin doesn’t exclude the possibility of a second market crash. In fact, another major sell-off could be lurking just around the corner. Risks such as a second wave of Covid-19 infections and rising tensions between the US and China are reminders that in the short term, the stock market looks set to be plagued by volatility.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…Furthermore, many analysts are worried about inflated asset prices amid such bleak economic conditions, especially in the US. With the NASDAQ 100 recently reaching a new all-time high in the middle of a global pandemic, it’s no wonder some are questioning the viability of the recent bull run.However, regardless of a second market crash, I’d stick to investing in the best UK shares available on the market. Buying high-quality companies and holding them for the long term is a tried and tested way of building capital. After all, nobody can successfully time the market repeatedly. In addition, holding for the long term allows you to ride out the temporary market downswings and fuels the process of compound returns.The best UK shares to buy nowWhen on the lookout for top shares to invest in, it’s vital to keep your chosen strategy in mind. For example, if you’re investing for income, you’ll want to direct your focus towards well-established businesses with healthy cash flows. Such companies often generate a sizeable and sustainable dividend. I’m thinking of firms such as GlaxoSmithKline, Imperial Brands Group, and National Grid. Each boasts a bulky yield and has plenty of cash to cover pay-outs for the foreseeable future.If your aim is to accumulate as much capital as possible via a growth investing strategy, you’ll want to look out for companies that are growing their earnings and expanding operations rapidly. Take companies such as Just Eat and Ocado as examples. Moreover, targeting up-and-coming small-cap stocks is an ideal way to invest for maximum growth. After all, these are likely to be the businesses with the most growth potential. Think of Boohoo and Games Workshop, for instance. Both have successfully grown their earnings over recent years and, in my view, have plenty left in the tank.Ultimately, focusing your attention on the best UK shares could prove to be your path to financial freedom. Through a combination of share price appreciation and dividend payments, your prospects of building serious capital greatly increase.

Las congregaciones de Family Promise abren sus puertas para albergar…

Es sumamente apremiante esta situacion, gracias anticipadas por su respuesta. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Una de las familias albergada por el programa Family Promise del valle de Gallatin en Bozeman, Montana. La diácona episcopal Roxanne Klingensmith de la iglesia episcopal de Santiago [St. James] en Bozeman, ayudó al lanzamiento de la red interreligiosa en esa ciudad. Foto de Luca Photography.[Episcopal News Service] Todo comenzó con un sándwich. Karen Olson trabajaba para Warner Lambert y había hecho uno de sus frecuentes viajes a Nueva York para una reunión almuerzo cuando se encontró a una vagabunda que estaba sentada en el exterior de la Gran Estación Central.“A principio de los años ochenta en Nueva York, era difícil caminar una cuadra de la ciudad sin ver a alguien que estuviera viviendo en la calle”, recordaba Olson. “Yo pasaba de largo junto a las personas sin hogar, supongo que como todo el mundo”.Esta vez, en lugar de seguir de largo, llevada por un impulso le compró un sándwich a la mujer y terminó conversando con ella. “Me dijo que no había comido desde el día anterior. Me enteré un poquito de su vida y de cierto modo se rompió una barrera. Hasta ese momento, yo sólo pensaba que uno no se acerca a [hablar con] vagabundos”.De regreso a casa, Olson les contó a sus hijos de 10 y 12 años acerca de la mujer desamparada, cuyo nombre era Milly. Y ellos le respondieron: “Hagamos sándwiches y démoselos a las personas sin hogar de Nueva York.“Durante un par de años” contó Olson, “cada dos domingos nos aparecíamos [en Nueva York] cargados de sándwiches y llegamos a conocer a las personas [que vivían en la calle] por sus nombres”.Ella también comenzó a adquirir conocimiento acerca de la carencia de hogar y particularmente de los apuros de las familias desamparadas. Finalmente, se dirigió a la comunidad religiosa del condado de Union, en Nueva Jersey, donde ella residía. Cuando no pudieron dominar la logística para abrir un albergue, crearon un nuevo modelo: once iglesias y una sinagoga se pusieron de acuerdo para alimentar y albergar a familias sin hogar durante una semana en rotación, en tanto la YMCA de Elizabeth ofreció espacio para un centro de acogida diurno para las familias. Un vendedor de autos de la zona les ofreció en descuento una furgoneta para transportar familias entre el centro y las congregaciones anfitrionas. Y así nació la primera Red de Hospitalidad Interreligiosa, en octubre de 1986.“Para mi sorpresa, se aparecieron cientos de voluntarios que querían provocar un cambio significativo”, dijo Olson. Esa red no tardó en convertirse en múltiples redes.“Nunca en verdad me propuse comenzar una organización”, afirmó Olson. Pero este año, esa organización que ella no se propuso comenzar, y que ahora se llama Family Promise, celebra su 25º. Aniversario de haberse con vertido en un programa nacional que ofrece, en todo el país, “albergue, comidas y apoyo de vivienda y empleo a más de 49.000 familias sin hogar anualmente”, según la página web de la organización.Con Family Promise participan 6.000 congregaciones —alrededor de un 8 por ciento de ellas episcopales— y 160.000 voluntarios en 41 estados, dijo Olson. “Virtualmente todas las religiones participan. Hay algunas estupendas asociaciones de diferentes religiones que trabajan juntas en comunidades locales”.En Florida, Family Promise del Condado de South Palm Beach incluye a congregaciones cristianas, judías y musulmanas.“La genialidad de Family Promise es que uno ve el poder de Dios que opera sin restricción a través de esta red de congregaciones, todas las cuales responden al llamado a servir a los más vulnerables entre nosotros”, dijo el Rdo. Andrew Sherman, rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Gregorio [St. Gregory’s] en Boca Ratón. “Como pueblo de Dios, todos respondemos en unanimidad para asistir a los más vulnerables. Para mí, teológicamente, es en verdad una lección sobre reino de Dios”.Veintitrés congregaciones apoyan la red, 11 de las cuales ofrecen albergue a 14 personas durante una semana unas cinco veces al año. San Gregorio ha dedicado una residencia de sus instalaciones al programa, de manera que algunas congregaciones que no pueden alojar familias en sus propios sitios, fungen como “anfitriones”, en tanto sus clientes sin hogar se albergan en la casa de la iglesia episcopal.La iglesia episcopal de San Pablo [St. Paul’s Episcopal Church] en Delray Beach y la capilla episcopal de San Andrés [Chapel of Saint Andrew Episcopal Church] en Boca Ratón también son congregaciones anfitrionas, en tanto San Mateo [St. Matthew’s Episcopal] en Delray Beach y San José [St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church] in Boynton Beach son congregaciones de apoyo a la red“Ahora mismo nuestra residencia se está usando probablemente unas 30 de las 52 semanas [del año]”, dijo Sherman. Esto no sólo les permite participar en el programa a las congregaciones que no cuentan con instalaciones de albergue, sino que también les ofrece alguna continuidad de viviendas a familias que de otro modo estarían mudándose todas las semanas, explicó.“No estoy acostumbrada a estar en un lugar diferente cada semana”, dijo Brenda Gery, cliente de Family Promise del Condado de Warren que está hospedada en la iglesia episcopal de San Lucas [St. Luke’s Episcopal Church] en Phillipsburg, Nueva Jersey. “No estoy acostumbrada a este tipo de situación. … Es difícil estar con personas que uno ni siquiera conoce”.Gery, de 52 años, había estado viviendo en las iglesias de Family Promise durante cuatro meses. Estaba fuera de su alcance quedarse en la vivienda subsidiada donde había vivido durante nueve años, luego de que perdiera su empleo de cajera.Esa noche, esperaba ver a su hijo de casi 16 años, que está quedándose con familiares en Phillipsburg. Él juega béisbol y aún le faltan dos años de escuela secundaria. “Quiso quedarse en Phillipsburg con sus amigos”, explicó ella. Otro hijo, de 18 años, vive por su cuenta en Pensilvania.“La gente de la iglesia ha sido muy buena. Eso facilita un poco las cosas”, agregó. Ella está contando los días a la espera de la semana que ha de pasar en la iglesia de la Alianza en Phillipsburg , a la que ella solía asistir.Otra madre soltera, Colleen Dolce, a punto de cumplir 24 años, estaba pasando su segunda noche en San Lucas con sus hijas Ryleigh, de 3 años, y Sophia, de 18 meses. Ella estuvo dando un poco de tumbos, particularmente durante los últimos dos meses, antes de conectarse con Family Promise. Según dijo Olson, alrededor del 60 por ciento de los clientes de Family Promise son niños, la mayoría de ellos menores de 6 años.“A ellas les afecta mucho más de lo que me afecta a mí”, dijo Dolce refiriéndose a sus hijas. “Creo que ellas se han apegado mucho a mí. He sido, literalmente, lo único estable que tienen. Lo bueno es que son pequeñas. Supongo que en el momento en que todo haya pasado no se acordarán mucho de esto”.Hay que hacer un montón de malabarismos. Una furgoneta transporta a su familia, ida y vuelta, hasta el centro diurno de Family Promise, desde donde ella conduce hasta la [casa de una] niñera para luego seguir para su trabajo en Dunkin’ Donuts. Cada lugar está distante de los otros, y ella está a la busca de horarios compatibles y de ayuda de una guardería infantil.“Todas las personas del centro diurno han sido realmente amables”, afirmó.  Los servicios disponibles incluyen una ducha y un vestidor, lavadora y secadora, cocina, computadoras para las búsquedas de empleo y un cuarto de juguetes para los niños.De regreso a la iglesia, los voluntarios ofrecen cena y desayuno y se quedan la noche entera con los huéspedes. Esa noche, Kathleen Scala había preparado una cena de espaguetis y estaba comiendo con las familias.“Simplemente debo dar donde es necesario dar”, dijo. “Si cocino en casa, ciertamente puedo cocinar desde aquí.El ministerio hace buen uso del espacio de la iglesia para cubrir una necesidad, agregó. Uno quiere, como iglesia, llegar a la comunidad”.Los voluntarios pasan tiempo con sus huéspedes en las congregaciones asociadas con Family Promise, brindándoles alimentos, amistad y alojamiento para pasar la noche.Sherman ayudó a inaugurar un programa de Family Promise en el condado de Palm Beach luego de descubrir que no había ni un solo albergue para personas sin hogar, pese a tener más habitantes que Rhode Island. “Las personas sin hogar venían a nuestra puerta en la iglesia, y uno trataba de ayudarlas. Sencillamente había que salvar una brecha enorme, tanto en lo que respecta a las necesidades como a la falta de serviciosLa red de Family Promise está ayudando a suplir esas carencias. Desde 2008, según un informe a la reunión anual de la red en enero, “Family Promise ha proporcionado más de 10.000 ‘noches de albergue’, 30.000 comidas y 83.000 horas de trabajo de 1.100 abnegados voluntarios. Una personal asalariado de tres individuos, auxiliado por voluntarios ‘expertos’, mentores y congregaciones participantes, ayudó a las familias a mejorar la crianza de sus hijos y a fijarse un presupuesto, al tiempo de encontrar cursos de capacitación, empleos, vivienda, atención infantil y transporte. Mientras el número de graduados del programa asciende ahora a 180 adultos y niños, Family Promise [local] ha alcanzado una envidiable tasa de éxito de aproximadamente un 85 por ciento, ligeramente superior al 80 por ciento de promedio que tiene la organización Family Promise nacional”.Sherman hizo notar que “se necesita una ‘aldea’ de congregaciones para hacer pasar a una familia sin hogar del desamparo a la estabilidad, y [eso ocurre] realmente mediante la conexión de todos los servicios”.E implica la participación de muchísimos voluntarios.En San Gregorio, más de 100 voluntarios ayudan a lo largo de todo el año, dijo Sherman. “Normalmente, se requiere [la participación] de unos 75 para una semana de hospedaje, cuando uno le añade todos los trabajos de cocinar, albergar, recibir, lavar la ropa de cama”.La familia promedio estuvo con las congregaciones de Family Promise durante nueve semanas el año pasado, informó Olson.En Bozeman, Montana, la iglesia episcopal de Santiago [St. James Episcopal Church] fue la primera en apuntarse para llegar a ser una parroquia de acogida con Family Promise del Valle de Gallatin, gracias al ímpetu de la “madre fundadora” de la red, la diácona Roxanne Klingensmith. “Ha sido un viejo anhelo para nosotros el hacer algo por las personas sin hogar de Bozeman, las cuales siguen siendo bastante invisibles”.Tomó 18 meses llegar a organizarse, desde captar congregaciones a recaudar fundos y adiestrar voluntarios, dijo ella.A partir de su lanzamiento en 2006, hasta abril de 2013, la red interreligiosa ha albergado a más de 100 familias, según informa su página web. Doce congregaciones anfitrionas y 11 congregaciones asociadas, y 1.500 voluntarios, han concluido las dos horas de entrenamiento que se requieren para ofrecerle servicios directos a los huéspedes.La idea de ayudar a familias desamparadas atrajo particularmente a la gente, dijo Klingensmith. “La razón por la que sabíamos que funcionaría era porque incluía a niños. Cuando se habla de niños sin hogar, eso capta la atención de la gente”.[La iglesia de] Santiago hospeda a familias en su antigua rectoría unas nueve veces al año. A las familias “les encanta porque es un ambiente hogareño y tiene dormitorios y dos baños completos y cocina y comedor”, explicó Klingensmith.“En cuanto a [los miembros de] la congregación, lo que significa es que logran participar de cerca”, dijo ella. “Creo que lo que hacen es vivir el evangelio”.“Esto les dio una oportunidad de, en verdad…ser portadores del amor de Cristo”.– Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

Declaración de la Obispa Presidente sobre el camino a seguir…

first_img Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Bath, NC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [26 de noviembre del 2014] La Obispa Presidente de la Iglesia Episcopal Katharine Jefferts Schori ha emitido la siguiente declaración sobre el camino a seguir a partir de Ferguson:La Iglesia Episcopal se une a muchos otros en profundo lamento por la trágica realidad que no cesa de revelarse en Ferguson, Missouri. El racismo en este país es parte de nuestra fundación, y no es exclusivo de una ciudad, provincia o región del país. Todos los estadounidenses viven las consecuencias de siglos de esclavitud, explotación y prejuicio. Ese legado continúa conduciendo a las personas a percibir la amenaza en aquellos que son vistos como “otro”. El color de la piel es a menudo la representación más visible de lo que divide a los hijos de Dios.La muerte de Michael Brown fue y es una tragedia, y se ha convertido en un poderoso testimonio de esas divisiones entre los seres humanos de esta nación. Su muerte también tiene el potencial de convertirse en una ofrenda sacramental, si sigue desafiándonos a abordar nuestras divisiones y las injusticias de este país que profundizan mucho más allá de la piel.Esta nación fue fundada con la visión de la libertad, una visión que ha requerido constantes desafíos a fin de avanzar hacia la verdadera libertad para todo el pueblo de esta nación. Los cristianos entienden la visión sagrada del reino de Dios como una sociedad de paz con justicia para todos. Que la vida y la muerte de Michael Brown nos conduzcan hacia una reconciliación que sacuda los cimientos de esta nación hacia la justicia para la que todos fuimos creados. La Iglesia Episcopal seguirá colaborando y alentando hacia la reconciliación racial en Missouri y en toda la nación. Les pido que se pongan de pie con las manos extendidas en amor, buscando la imagen de Dios en cada vecino, y ofreciéndose a sí mismos en vulnerabilidad en las aras de la reconciliación a través de esta nación. Seamos instrumentos de paz y sanación de Dios, evidenciado en las comunidades de  justicia para todos.La Revdma.

Company’s Ideology 1. Modularity One of the key aspects for success of Pack Line is the modular design of the machines. All the machines are based on modular components that are easily customized for each particular project. 2. Hygiene Clean environment and hygienic working conditions are very important, since the main customers of Pack Line are food, pharmaceutical or beverage industries. 3. Crafted steel work The steel work of Pack Line is famous for being one of the most crafted in the world. Ideal steel finishing and detailed design are very attractive aspects for most of the customers. Save this picture!© Lea Katz Architecture4. Simplicity of Complexity “Simplicity is the secret of complexity “– President of Pack Line – Mr. Victor Katseli. The machines are as simple as they have to be in order to have high standards of performance and be user friendly, compact and attractive. 5. Environmental & Green Talking about packaging = Talking about environment – green and environmental approach is the direction Pack Line attempts to achieve – it is constantly involved in developing new equipment for new, environmentally friendly packaging materials. 6. Family feeling As family owned business, Pack Line has been always projecting a warm feeling of family to each of its customers. People visiting the headquarters should feel at home. 7. Packaging Visitors should clearly feel, while crossing the door of Pack Line that they are in the world of Packaging. Aspects such as stackable components, mass production, individuality, color or any other that are relevant to this field should be seriously considered in the design of the building. Process Existing 1950th industrial shed with adjacent worker’s utilities building located within the biggest industrial zone of Tel – Aviv region, is the starting point of this process. This typology of 1950th industrial shed is currently dominating the fabric of many industrial zones in Israel. To regenerate those zones we need to analyze the existing condition, to set new valid targets and to develop an efficient process of transformation between those 2 extremes on both urban and building scales. The efficiency of this process is first of all questioned by the gap between the 2 states and consequently by the capital that has to be invested in order to shift from one state to another. Save this picture!© Lea Katz ArchitecturePack Line Headquarters project is structured as prototypical process of regeneration. 2000 sqm industrial shed – was used by 5 big companies during the past 55 years. Each company adopted the structure for their needs – walls were added on walls, columns connected to columns to support cranes that were carrying fridges on the production floor, tones of wiring and piping hanging from all the walls and ceilings, asbestos roof that was ripped off in some places, broken uneven floor that shifted by the movement of floating send foundations and in addition the structure was partly burned. 600 sqm of adjacent structure arranged on 2 floors – initially built as utilities space for the workers in the factory was adapted to office building. Being long and narrow, offices were organized on both sides of the central corridor. Low floor ceiling heights were decreased even more by 50 cm of suspended ceilings that contained tones of cabling and ducting. Save this picture!© Lea Katz Architecture2500 sqm of yard – is partly paved with old uneven asphalt over contaminated land. All the rain water from 2500 sqm roof area is drained into the space between the 2 buildings and from there into the blocked sewage system, while flooding most of the yard and the adjacent main road. The total area is almost sufficient to accommodate Pack Line’s programmatic requirements. Local density and coverage constraints would allow adding another 480 sqm, so we added 180sqm of loading bay, 20 sqm of entrance area, 40 sqm of connection between the 2 buildings and 240sqm of gallery space inside of the shed. All the concrete walls inside of the shed were not structural, so all the redundant walls and beams were removed and reorganized to accommodate the production process of Pack Line. The existing roof structure is cleverly designed minimal truss supporting light roof panels. Asbestos was removed and berried in special place according to all the environmental regulations. The truss was treated and fully restored to take new light insulating panels. Save this picture!© Lea Katz ArchitectureThe carrying columns were revealed after removal of all the walls to have funny shoulders that were carrying the crane beams. Those shoulders were restored to create new elegant shoulder columns that are organizing the production of the entire company. Each column is a working station and became an integrated part of the production plans. Local temperature and lack of air-conditioning in 1950th generated efficient environmental section, which oriented towards the north, got in natural light, while minimizing the heat gain in the same time naturally ventilating the space. Air-conditioning system as well as artificial lighting was introduced, but both are used only 30% of what usually 2000 sqm would use in Tel Aviv climate. The office structure being long and narrow generated new typology. Instead of the corridor – service wall was introduced. This service wall interacts between the open space office through which circulation takes place on one side and the private offices on the other side. The service wall contains the air conditioning, lighting, electricity, archiving and partitioning of the entire space. All is compactly packed in central spine. Central spine typology works in narrow structure, since the required distribution of light and air is only 4 meters to each side. Once the existing structures were cleaned off all the redundant materials, walls and cables, there are 2 main operations: 1. Inserting new organizational diagram inside of it 2. Packing it with new skin. The packaging operation is reinforcing the identity of Pack Line as manufacturer of Packaging Machines, that are designed to fill and seal mainly consumer food packaging. The new skin is treated as packaging material – using the old already insulating skin, new light aluminum panels are wrapping it with 20 cm average gap. This gap is creating an air barrier, reinforcing the insulation and in the same time contains all the systems that are connecting the building to the outside, such as drainage, main electrical and telephone cables, and sewage and vent ducts. Save this picture!© Lea Katz ArchitectureTo reinforce the packaging identity, the doors and windows are hidden. The windows are behind perforated panels, those panels protect the interior from strong south light, so no internal curtains are any longer required. The doors and the corner details are developed to be invisible in order to reinforce the continuous wrap of the perfect packaging. The aluminum corrugated panels associate with the corrugated packaging materials such as cardboard and in fact are developed on the same principle. Repetition and color dynamics are associating with the supermarket shelf that every one is familiar with. Natural aspects are reinforced in the cracked floor finish, 7 meters water fall feature in the main entrance, and 6 meters aquarium in the directors office that stand on artificial grass carpet. Nature is important for the branding of Packaging Company that intensively develops and supports environmental and sustainable packaging solutions.Project gallerySee allShow lessWebinar: Combining BIM with Alternative Project DeliveryArticlesLong Island House / Thomas Phifer and PartnersArticles Sharelast_img read more

Plot size 1000 sqm.The design of the house is based on 2 paths of thought – an architectural concept and an observation on the family as a community.Save this picture!© Yoav GurinArchitecturally, our main goal was to allow as much as possible unrestricted flow between inside and outside, making the most of fresh air, garden views and natural day light. The ‘L’ shaped house, backing the street, wraps the garden and provides its inhabitants with privacy. It offers the possibility for each family member to pass freely from bedrooms and living areas directly to the garden on a joint path outside. While it allows freedom of movement, there is a clear view to the different parts of the house inside and out, which makes minding the children more relaxing and comfortable.Save this picture!Floor PlanMost of the house is on the ground with only a guest bedroom in the basement. The bedrooms are placed in the distance, directly in front of the entrance door, with a patio which bonds inside and out and acts as a subtle boundary between living and sleeping areas. It is a wide path, raised by a couple of stairs, providing comforting daylight all the day long.Save this picture!© Yoav GurinAn intentional use of low key materials, and the design whcich backs the street, reflects the ideals of the clients who requested a high quality space, without standing out too much.Save this picture!© Yoav GurinProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitect Develops the World’s First HoverboardArchitecture NewsMaggie’s Oxford / WilkinsonEyreSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

DuPont Pioneer Offers Management Tips to Push Soybeans to Max Yield…

first_imgHome News Feed DuPont Pioneer Offers Management Tips to Push Soybeans to Max Yield Potential SHARE Facebook Twitter For high yield – DuPont Pioneer agronomists advise growers to manage their soybeans intensively. According to Agronomy Research Manager Mark Jeschke – the biggest challenge to high soybean yields is changing the mindset about managing the soybean crop. He says soybeans get less attention during the growing season for legitimate reasons – but researchers want growers to know the reward will be there for intensive soybean management. Stand establishment is the first step in managing for high yield. Jeschke says earlier planting and higher levels of crop residue mean growers often drop the plant into colder, wetter soils and thus the potential for seedling diseases increases. He says seed treatments protect seed planted into challenging conditions. Jeschke notes fungicide seed treatments offer multiple modes of action that protect against a broad spectrum of early season diseases. SHARE Facebook Twittercenter_img Adding an insecticide to seed treatments helps control pests before their feeding can provide an entry port for disease. Jeschke says soybean growers can also gain an advantage with narrow rows. He says the results have been fairly consistent – growers generally see higher yields as soybean rows narrow. Other management tips include – planting as early as practical using full-season varieties for the grower’s geography; managing soil fertility; and practicing crop rotation. Finally – Jeschke recommends monitoring in-season weed, pest and disease problems – and managing accordingly.
