Jon Miller, Nov. 7

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We finished on Wednesday evening with the double-crops. They did extremely well. They were short but they still had a lot of beans on them. They were in the mid-40s over 300-some acres of double-crops. Even some of the beans we planted July 18 still made it in the upper 30s. On our first field we were hoping for 50 but it actually went 49. They matured great.The wheat looks great. The moisture we got helped it and the warm temperatures have it off to a really good start.It was probably one of the best years we’ve had for beans. One non-GMO variety that we plant could have been better on yield. It is an old variety and it does well for how old it is. We ended up averaging around 69 on beans. The last fields we had were in the low 60s and brought the average down.The corn high yield was a field averaging 240 and the lowest average yield was around180 bushels. Very few fields went below 200. It wasn’t a record yield for corn but it was still good. After talking to other people we can’t complain about 2016. With the way the fall went, it makes you feel good about doing it again next year.Prices stayed better than I anticipated with there being such a big crop out there. We sell double-crops straight to market because we can’t hold them and they were close to a dollar higher than last year.The wheat acres did extremely well with the wheat crop, the straw and a 40-bushel double-crop average. The income off of those acres was probably the highest.last_img read more

Telcos Still Muscling Into the Cloud

first_imgRelated Posts klint finley Tags:#cloud#Cloud Providers A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… As expected, Savvis was acquired this week. And as expected, it was acquired by a telco – CenturyLink, the third largest telecommunications company in the U.S. There’s very little to say about this acquisition that wasn’t said earlier this year when Verizon acquired Terremark and Time Warner Cable acquired NaviSite.“Verizon and Century Link have made it clear that telco’s are attacking this market and both have gone the acquisition route,” writes Gartner analyst Kyle Hilgendorf. Hilgendorf writes that Gartner has found that the biggest technical problems enterprises migrating to IaaS face are “network performance and latency issues (not to mention non-technical legal, transparency, and availability concerns).”“Telco’s are in ideal positions with their global network to solve these network issues faster than more traditional hosters or software companies,” he writes.Chuck Hollis, vice president of global marketing and chief technology officer at EMC, told us when Verizon acquired Terremark:If you believe in the secular trend that — over time — more IT will be delivered as a service vs. consumed in a traditional fashion, you quickly realize that telcos can have a compelling position.They’ve got lots and lots of pipe. They know how to deliver a related form of service — communications. They know how to price their offerings and bill for them.Their strategic motivations are usually clear as well. More ordinary network services are quickly becoming commoditized. There’s only so much content you can sell people. And, before long, you go looking for the next big market to attack.Indeed, early on, many people thought that IT-as-a-service would go to the telco carriers, and that would be that.Earlier this month, CenturyLink completed its acquisition of Qwest, which was already in the cloud game. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market In its Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting, Gartner positioned Savvis as the market leader, kicking off a mini-controversy about which companies were and were not included.Rackspace must be getting some interesting offers right about now.Disclosure: Qwest Business, now owned by CenturyLink, is a ReadWriteWeb sponsorPhoto by Nicholas Smale Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more
