Cameron says Brown is not the right man to lead IMF

first_img Show Comments ▼ DAVID Cameron effectively ended Gordon Brown’s hopes of leading the IMF yesterday after a scathing attack on his economic record.The Prime Minister said: “It does seem to me that if you have someone who didn’t think we had a debt problem in the UK, when we self-evidently do have a debt problem, then they might not be the most appropriate person to work out whether other countries around the world have debt and deficit problems.”Under current rules the EU proposes the IMF’s managing director, giving Cameron the right to veto a candidate. He said the next IMF boss should probably come from outside the EU, adding it should be someone who “understands the dangers of excessive debt”. In a further swipe at Brown he said the candidate should not be a “washed up politician”.Although Brown has not officially stated his intention to apply for the post, which may soon be vacant if the incumbent Dominique Strauss Kahn steps down as expected, his recent speeches suggest he is gearing up for a role in international finance, and he has close ties with the IMF.Have your say on whether Brown should lead the IMF KCS-content whatsapp Tags: NULL by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comcenter_img whatsapp Cameron says Brown is not the right man to lead IMF Tuesday 19 April 2011 9:02 pm More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Sharelast_img read more

England v Crusaders: England hunting spirited win

first_imgEngland look to raise morale in this mid-week fixture after losing the second Test and the series against New Zealand while the Crusaders promise to spring a few surprises on the tourist, finds Alan Dymock in Christchurch. Crusaders head coach Todd Blackadder made a point of saying on Monday that there was “zero” risk of his charges being overawed, before explaining that England’s analysis of the team may not fully prepare them for what’s coming on Tuesday night.“We’ve looked at this like a Test match for us,” former All Black Blackadder said. “We’ve not prepared as we do for the Super Rugby game in two weeks. We looked at it and are giving it the respect it deserves. We have prepared as if the Crusaders are a Test team preparing for a Test, which it will be.“It’s actually been quite refreshing, just to get out of what is almost a grind at times. We’ve changed a little bit of our structures and have enjoyed the one-off-ness. We’re not here for bonus points, we’re here representing a proud jersey and a strong franchise and also, it’s something really quite unique. We aren’t the All Blacks. England will get a little slice of what we are about.“There are some people that think Super Rugby is Super Touch but it is a fantastic competition we play in. It’s also a great opportunity to showcase our rugby to the world and that’s quite exciting.”England team to face Canterbury Crusaders: Alex Goode; Ben Foden, Henry Trinder, Brad Barritt, Anthony Watson; Danny Cipriani, Lee Dickson; Alex Waller, Joe Gray, Henry Thomas, Ed Slater (c), Dave Attwood, James Haskell, Matt Kvesic, Tom Johnson.England subs to face Canterbury Crusaders: David Ward, Nathan Catt, Kyle Sinckler, Michael Paterson, Richard Wigglesworth, Stephen Myler, Jonny May, Chris Pennell. TAGS: Highlight Lean on me: Uncapped second-rower Ed Slater has been selected as England’s captain to face the Crusaders During the naming of the England squad to face the Canterbury Crusaders on the Tuesday night before the third and final Test in Hamilton, mid-week captain Ed Slater explained how this game represents a perfect opportunity to lift a weary squad.The Leicester Tiger – one of four uncapped players picked to start in this fixture – starts the match opposite a Crusaders squad with only one member of the current All Blacks squad returning, flanker Matt Todd who sits on the bench.“We’re under no illusions, we’ve lost the last two games and this is a chance for us to lift the spirit in the camp,” The second-row said. “We’ve been close in the last two Test games and guys are really eager to make their mark in this game. Our focus first and foremost is to play well as a team, but we definitely need to get that win.”It was something England assistant coach Rowntree backed whilst insisting that this game is vitally important to the tour. “We’ve spoken about this game for a long time. It’s a fourth Test and a huge occasion for people like Ed (Slater) who trained well with the game in mind.“I’m looking forward to the game, it’s a quick shift of focus from the Test, but it’s one we’ve planned for and selected for a long time. We’re expecting a massive game.”The main talking points in this England selection are that Kyle Eastmond is rested as question marks still hang over the fitness of Test centres Billy Twelvetrees and Luther Burrell, while Danny Cipriani comes in to start at fly-half. The three other uncapped starters for England are Henry Trinder, Anthony Watson and loosehead Alex Waller.On the bench England have uncapped players in Dave Ward, Nathan Catt, young Kyle Sinckler and Canterbury local and Sale Sharks second-rower Michael Paterson, who was called in late for this fixture having played agains the Barbarians at Twickenham at the start of the month.Yet another Whitelock: One-cap All Black George Whitelock leads the CrusadersMeanwhile England’s next opponents, the Crusaders, who have had weeks without competitive rugby due to the international break, still with a number of regular starters available and the team have have come out ready to swing at an England side desperate to take something from their trip down under.

Could Moldova become rugby’s next forwards factory?

first_imgThis proud East European nation was on the rise but has fallen away. We all know about Georgia’s production line, but will Moldovan monsters in top leagues remain a rarity? Felston tells Rugby World: “We went from 25th in the world to wherever we are now (59). In 2014 we were better than Russia, 100%, but then we couldn’t get a team out and with Moldova it’s either the first team or it’s like the fifths team.“In that build-up we beat Germany, like five match points to zero match points, but they went on to qualify further because they had their (best) team the whole time – and even then they only lost to Russia with two late tries. We’d absolutely demolished Germany and I was so certain we could have played in that top league (Rugby Europe) and done really well and in the end we kind of lost everyone.”Today, Moldova play in Rugby Europe’s Conference Two North, alongside Austria, Denmark, Finland and Norway. So what about politics – why could you never keep fielding the top team every game?“Basically there was an issue that went all the way to the supreme court over who ran the rugby federation in Moldova,” Felston replies.Brief foray: Moldova on the sevens circuit, 2008 (Getty Images)According to several parties, there has been a years-long schism within Moldovan rugby. Two clubs who came out of the university game there rose to prominence – and neither ever saw eye to eye. Felston explains that when one of two factions was in control of the federation, players allied to the other side would abstain from playing. And there was an ongoing power struggle between two would-be presidents.Cobîlaș refused to play for his country because of the quarrel, as have many others.Gargalic has seen the union in disarray for years – he explains that he would have been willing to help with younger generations if anyone ever asked. But they haven’t. Finances have since been a struggle, with some interviewed explaining the personal cost of flying out to represent their nation.“It almost killed rugby in Moldova, this dispute,” says Mahu of the ‘civil war’ within the sport. “When I first came to rugby in Moldova we had five to six sports clubs, and a lot of young guys came to rugby. There was no money but there was really good enthusiasm.“The national team was pretty good, and guys like Cobîlaș, Arhip, Gajion came from Russia to play. When this (schism) happened, none of the foreigners came to play for Moldova and we played more amateurs and we just dropped.“It’s very sad for me because I loved playing for the national team but now it’s pointless.”Big leap: Andrei Mahu in action for Krasny Yar in Europe (Getty Images)Rugby Europe have told us: “We are aware of the ongoing changes within the union, of which we are monitoring closely and helping in its efforts to organise the sport of rugby in the country.” Rugby World also understands that the continental organisation is satisfied the Moldovans currently comply with all of the requirements demanded of member unions and that Rugby Europe recognises and works with Alexei Cotruta as the federation head.Felston says he believes things are edging in the right direction again. However, Mahu goes on: “I think it’s too late for our generation. These guys (stars) will not come back to play for Moldova. They need to rebuild everything from zero.“But it’s very hard; they lost this huge opportunity to be like a small Georgia. And without any money – Moldova is a very poor country and even the soccer team are struggling for money – it’s very hard to build something now.”WHAT NEXT?Gargalic believes that rugby needs promotion if it is to thrive – but there also needs to be a tight grip on what happens to any money made available. And he wants to see investment in schools, villages and towns, to bring in more and better coaches.Arhip has seen self-interest “destroy rugby in Moldova” but he feels a robust financial plan is vital, and agrees that schools and universities hold the key. Yet again he cautions that you need the right people in charge at the federation.Cobîlaș gives his own thoughts, adding: “Moldova is a beautiful country with lots of friendly, talented, responsible and hard-working people. For sure there is a need for some investment projects, to create an infrastructure for new generations.“There is a demand from parents and also young players showing an interest. But at some point, when they don’t get a salary or don’t have prospects, they are disappointed and look for a proper job (away from rugby).Eyes forward: Cobilas wants to help the next generation (Getty Images)“With a good infrastructure, rugby pitches for completion, learning centres for coaches, financial support to participate in the competitions at the international level, the results would flow and this sport could become number one in Moldova.”The prop goes on to recall a time when he heard Steve Diamond say: “If you want to find good forwards go to Georgia, Romania and Moldova.” At the moment, few are searching there.Like Arhip, Cobîlaș is a softly spoken, thoughtful and optimistic character… who just happens to be a fearsome forward. But the pair wonder if young players starting from a low level of ability would go through what they did to make it to the top.So after studying at the Toulouse business school, Cobîlaș set up the project Scrum Play Rugby Academy, telling us that the focus is “on producing top-level forwards and helping players and coaches to develop their scrum skills”.Arhip ponders why it is that Eastern European forwards have become the must-have accessory for top clubs – “In Moldova we’ve had very good backs as well,” he adds. But as it stands, Moldova is less of a forwards factory for the elite game and more of a starting point for those incredible few artisans.It could take years for the number of professionals to come out of the country to climb higher, if indeed it ever can. Still, Arhip expects Gaijon to come good while there is so much in front of Soroca’s Ojovan.A nation waits. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS (Illustration by Jamie Latchford) center_img Could Moldova become rugby’s next forwards factory?Vadim Cobîlaș remembers the day he brought a ram home. It was a reward for his heroics on the wrestling mat.The veteran prop grew up in Soroca, a fortified town on the banks of the Dniester river, just a stroll from the Ukrainian border. It was here, as a younger man, that he competed in and won the local Trînta – a beloved wrestling competition used all over Moldova. Cobîlaș remembers how proud his father was that day, how the beast was cooked in the old, familiar style and dished out amongst friends and competitors.Asked about getting into rugby, Cobîlaș responds: “At the moment there is one rugby team in Soroca, at amateur level. But unfortunately during my childhood there weren’t places to train and play rugby. I finished school and went to the university in Chișinău and there I trained for the first time when I was around 20 years old.”Trînta action: The Moldovan event (Vadim Cobilas)Cobîlaș is considered a trailblazer. To make it in the pro game, he had to leave Moldova. It is a familiar tale if you speak to those few Moldovans who have risen to the top level. In Cobîlaș’s case, he had to go via VVA Modino (now VVA Saracens), before he was spotted by then-Russia coach Steve Diamond, who took him to Sale, where some former team-mates say he became a legend. Now in Bordeaux, the 37-year-old tighthead has had a fine career.And he isn’t the only prop to have come out of that thickly-walled border town. In France, the 23-year-old Cristian Ojovan has sprung from his progressively impressive showings at Aurillac to ink a deal with Top 14 giants Clermont. And as it transpires, Cobîlaș played no small part in helping the youngster there.“I met Cristian in the gym in Soroca,” the elder statesman says. “I saw how he was training and asked if he would like to play rugby. As at that time in Soroca we didn’t have rugby, I told him he needed to go to Chișinău. The Moldovan rugby president at that time, Vasile Revenco, met him and helped with accommodation and transferred him to study in Chișinău.“This is how he started to learn about rugby and develop new skills. I saw his progress and spoke with my agent to help him into a French academy in Pau. At the moment he has got to Top 14, he has made huge progress, but he should focus on developing his potential. I hope he will succeed in the future. At the moment he has a platform, but it all depends on his motivation, dedication, taking responsibility and hard work.”Which is a superb sentiment. But off the back of it, more questions drip down.In Europe and in particular France, we are used to seeing forwards packs propped up by Georgian bruisers, but what makes Moldovans special? After showing real promise just a few Rugby World Cup cycles ago, and with Cobîlaș and others scorching a path out of their former Soviet state, what has happened to their production line of talent?Skills: Several team-mates talk of Cobilas’s underrated ball skills (Getty Images)NATURAL RESOURCES“Georgia is special for front-rowers,” explains Moldovan lock Andrei Mahu, who plays for the Krasny Yar club in Siberia these days. “But Moldova also produces second-rows and back-rows as well as props, so I think we had even bigger potential.“Maybe it’s the power of the people in that region. Even here in Russia, the Moldovans are the bigger guys. It’s natural – people are pretty big in Moldova!”Combat sports like wrestling and boxing have a long history in the region, with weightlifting another sporting avenue. Yet Mahu explains that in the current climate, “all sports in Moldova are struggling” and the path out of Moldova for ambitious rugby players has proven pretty tough. Both he and Enisei star Maxim Gargalic, a compatriot and No 8, came out of the university game in Moldova before moving abroad. The latter ended up Constanta, Romania, after his coach talked him up.Another player to get out via Romania was current Cardiff Blue Dmitri Arhip. The prop tells Rugby World that he left his home in Chișinău at just 14 and a half, determined to show his family he could make something of himself.He would put in the years in Dinamo Bucharest’s junior and then senior sides. When he too made it to Enisei – with whom he would do battle with Cobîlaș a few times, a quirky callback to a time the pair had been club-mates in Chișinău – Russian titles would arrive. But in order to progress further so much still came down to chance as well as his undeniable hard work.Arms Park: Dmitri Arhip of Cardiff Blues (Inpho)It was in an off-season game against Connacht that Ospreys coach Jon Humphreys saw something in Arhip. Having brought him to Wales, he and Steve Tandy invested resources in him, but importantly showed patience when the prop blew his Achilles. Motivated by daily encounters with Adam, Alun Wyn and Duncan Jones, Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb and Richard Hibbard, he began to “build” himself.In talking about how today’s Moldovan youngsters could follow the lead of recent heroes, he touches on the need for fortune.“The story of Cristian (Ojovan) is completely different,” he starts. “He had huge support from Vadim. And the first man to open the door to Europe for us was Vadim.“We both worked so hard to get to this level. And especially on my side, I was very lucky. Because I don’t know what happens if Jon is not present at that game to see me, it’s hard to say. My road to professional rugby was very long and very hard.“When I was in Romania sometimes we didn’t have food. Maybe not clothes or other things. It was a very tough life. In the juniors we weren’t paid and on the senior team I was very young and my salary was very low. Sometimes it was only just enough for food.“Moldova has created a lot of big, good players, but not many played in Europe. We didn’t play at a high enough level to be seen by other people, or agents. So the story of Cristian is different from my and Vadim’s story.”During lockdown, Arhip was working out in his garage with fellow Moldovan prop Gheorghe Gajion – a man he describes as “the strongest I have ever seen in my life – a machine!” After two years with the Ospreys, Gajion will head to Aurillac in ProD2 for more game time. Although disappointed the Ospreys did not give the near 21-stone forward more game time, Arhip is convinced Gajion can make something of himself in France.Strong man: Gheorghe Gajion during his time as an Osprey (Inpho)So we have tabs on the movements of some of these players in the UK and France, and there is the established run into Romania and Russia… But today many Moldovans asked about the route to the top of the game explain that there is shrinking demand in some markets, if there ever was any before.And they look to home for the reasons why.NATIONAL ISSUESWhen Moldova were pushing hard on the trail to qualification for Rugby World Cup 2015, Craig Felston was playing fly-half. In his words, the stretch with the team over 2013 and 2014 were the proudest days of his life and he loved playing behind a pack full of menacing combatants and in love with doing the tough stuff.But even then, there were issues behind the scenes.

Please enter your email address here June 28, 2016 at 1:59 pm Reply Reply Trina Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Political candidates from around Central Florida will converge tomorrow evening at The Apopka VFW Community Center to take part in the Political Mingle and Hob Nob sponsored by The Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce.There are 19 candidates and more than 200 local business leaders and community members expected to be in attendance.“We hope that the candidates are able to capitalize on the opportunity to share their respective visions for the greater Apopka area and the state as a whole,” said Chamber President Laura A. Heiselman. “We are particularly pleased to feature several judicial candidates.  It is often challenging to learn more about these particular races so this event gives our attendees the chance to engage with candidates on a one-on-one basis to help make informed decisions.” Please enter your comment!  The Hob Nob format is essentially a trade show for candidates… allowing attendees to engage one-on-one with the candidates and business exhibitors.There are no formal speeches, forums or debates, but there will be a straw poll taken with the winners announced at the end of the evening by Chamber Board Chairman Jeff Welch.Heiselman believes a good showing in the Straw Poll could springboard a candidate to victory in August or November.“This is the first political Hob Nob in our region. A win helps a candidate to drive momentum as they head into the rest of the campaign season.” I know this article will be looked over. Here is one suggestion for the LANGD Gas Board: Why don’t you all make a suggestion for a earlier meeting time? 10:00 pm until 11:00 pm? Kind of late night meeting, isn’t it? Most people are heading to bed, to go to sleep at that time! I am certain that is what I saw posted on the city website.

‘Apparently they’re great blokes that need protection for what they’re facing from their actions’ – Hewitt

first_imgThursday Dec 3, 2020 ‘Apparently they’re great blokes that need protection for what they’re facing from their actions’ – Hewitt Following the Argentinian Rugby Union’s decision to reinstate Pablo Matera as captain and lift the suspension of Guido Petti and Santiago Socino, Dragons winger Ashton Hewitt has said that their statement was “exactly the opposite of what the statement should look like”.ADVERTISEMENTMatera, Petti and Socino were suspended on Tuesday for “discriminatory and xenophobic” social media posts made between 2011 and 2013, which Hewitt saw as an opportunity for “an education piece”.But the UAR explained their decision to rescind the suspensions as “the three players expressed their deep regret,” and that “they have not repeated similar actions during these more than eight years”.However, Hewitt had already said on Twitter earlier this week that “making [Matera] say sorry isn’t really going to solve anything”.Instead, the Welshman said that this situation must be “properly addressed” in order to “understand why he had those views and made those comments”.Given the UAR’s response, it makes sense why the 26-year-old has cause for concern. Though the statement said that a resolution will be reached in the next few days, Hewitt has shared on Twitter what course of action he believes should have been taken:“If he has changed his views since then, explain what it was specifically that made him change those views. Explain why he held those views in the first place. If he can’t, educate him on those views so he can fully understand the severity of them. Until then, ban.”ADVERTISEMENTIf he has changed his views since then, explain what it was specifically that made him change those views. Explain why he held those views in the first place.

Apparently they’re great blokes that need protection for what they’re facing from their actions. Fucking hell https://t.co/b434j1bq6e— Ashton Hewitt (@ashton_hewitt) December 3, 2020Being of Jamaican and Welsh heritage, Hewitt has been a significant figure in recent months in exposing the racism that is prevalent in rugby and society as a whole.A first-person piece by the winger appeared in Guinness PRO14 programmes in October which sought to amplify the message of Rugby Against Racism. He wrote about what ‘black lives matter’ means to him, his experience of racism growing up and the positivity and progress that has come from speaking out and starting these conversations.ADVERTISEMENTThough their suspensions have been lifted, Matera, Petti and Socino have been excluded from the Pumas’ final Tri Nations match with Australia this Saturday.There’s an opportunity for an education piece with the Pablo Matera situation. Understand why he had those views and made those comments and address that. Making him say sorry isn’t really going to solve anything.— Ashton Hewitt (@ashton_hewitt) December 1, 2020Racism isn’t childish and he wasn’t a child when he said them. He may not have grown as a person and nobody will know whether he has or not until it’s properly addressed and those conversations are had. https://t.co/dYdFpPhAou— Ashton Hewitt (@ashton_hewitt) December 2, 2020 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Ag Barometer Shows Confidence in Ag Economy; Producers Confirm Large Prevented…

first_img By Purdue University News Service – Aug 6, 2019 Facebook Twitter Previous articleStrong Finish to First Half for U.S. Pork, Beef ExportsNext articleTrade War Intensifying as Tariffs Set to Increase on Chinese Goods Sept. 1 Purdue University News Service SHARE Ag Barometer Shows Confidence in Ag Economy; Producers Confirm Large Prevented Plant Acres Facebook Twitter SHARE The Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer reading jumped to 153 in July, up 27 points from June, and up 52 points from May. Improving crop conditions after an extraordinarily wet planting season, combined with a late spring/early summer crop price rally, boosted farmer sentiment. This improvement occurred despite the fact that many producers were in the midst of filing prevented planting crop insurance claims and wondering about the size of the USDA’s 2019 Market Facilitation Payments (MFP). Results are based on a survey of 400 agricultural producers across the U.S. conducted from July 15 through July 19, 2019, which was prior to USDA’s announcement of 2019 MFP payment rates.A big driver of sentiment was producers’ improved expectations for current economic conditions. The Index of Current Conditions, a sub-index of the ag barometer, increased 44 points in July to a reading of 141, marking the largest one month improvement since data collection began in October of 2015. The barometer’s other sub-index, the Index of Future Expectations, also increased, up 18 points from June, to a reading of 159 in July.“The Corn Belt is continuing to see better crop conditions and that has farmers, at least momentarily, breathing a sigh of relief. However, the agricultural economy is still in flux,” said James Mintert, the barometer’s principal investigator and director of Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture. “The impact of prevented planting on 2019 corn and soybean acreage and prices along with the outcome of trade talks with China remain unknown.”As a result of the late planting season, and the possibility of large prevented planting acreage not captured in their June Acreagereport, USDA announced that they would re-survey farm operations in nearly all major corn and soybean states during July to better estimate actual planted acreage of both crops. The results from that survey will not be available until mid-August.To help fill the information void, this month’s barometer survey asked corn and soybean growers if they are taking a prevented planting payment on any of the corn or soybean acreage they intended to plant in 2019. Although USDA extended their deadline to report prevented plantings to July 22 in affected states, most farmers completed their prevented planting claims by USDA’s original deadline of July 15 and were able to provide an accurate reading on their prevented planting acreage when this month’s ag barometer survey was conducted.Twenty-five percent of corn/soybean growers in the survey said they are filing a prevented planting claim on some of their intended corn acreage while 24% said they are filing a prevented planting claim on some of their soybean acreage. In a follow-up question, producers who indicated they submitted a claim were asked what percentage of their intended acreage they will claim as prevented planting. Sixty-one percent of the farmers filing a prevented corn planting claim said their prevented planting totaled 15% or more of their intended corn acreage and 42% said that they did not plant 25% or more of their intended acreage. Meanwhile, 39% of soybean growers submitting a prevented planting claim said they did not plant between 15-25% of their intended soybean acreage. In contrast to corn growers, however, just 2% of soybean farmers with a prevented planting claim said they were not able to plant 25 % or more of their intended soybean acreage.Producers were also asked whether they feel now is a good or bad time to make large investments in their farming operations. In July, the Large Farm Investment Index, improved to a reading of 67, up 25 points from June and 30 points from May. This increase marked both the largest 2-month improvement in the index since data collection began in fall 2015 and the highest reading for the index since February 2018. Sentiment also spilled over into their expectations for increased land values. Short-term, the percentage of producers expecting land values to increase in the upcoming 12 months jumped from just 10% in June to 21% in July, the highest percentage expecting an increase in values since February 2018. Long-run, 53% of producers said they expect values to rise over the next 5 years compared to 45% who felt that way in June and 39% in May.Read the full July Ag Economy Barometer report at https://purdue.ag/agbarometer.
