The 30th annual Milan No-Till Field Day was the perfect place for Charlie Cahoon to talk about herbicide resistance — despite his being over 600 miles from home. Cahoon knows that widespread adoption of no-till was facilitated in large part by the introduction of herbicides coupled with herbicide-resistant traits like Roundup Ready. They also proliferated the conservation of soil and water. “If we want to preserve no-till, we must do everything we can to get a handle on herbicide resistance,” says Cahoon, assistant professor and Extension weed specialist: corn and cotton, North Carolina State University. “If we can’t control weeds with herbicides or other tactics, we’ll have to revert back to tillage to control weeds and we will lose the benefits of no-till.” Cahoon used the odds of winning the lottery (1 in 292 million) to illustrate the initial frequency of a herbicide-resistant weed within a population. “You may think, like your odds … [Read more...] about Escaped pigweed could be the lottery winner
By Patrick May | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: July 26, 2018 at 11:31 am | UPDATED: July 26, 2018 at 11:35 am The latest to join the Big-Time Lotto Lucky Duck Club is some stranger who bought a winning Mega Millions ticket the other day at Ernie’s Liquors in San Jose.

Some people can't believe David Spillane's luck when it comes to the state lottery. "People come up to me and say congratulations. How come you win over and over?" Spillane, a lawyer from Hanover, said in a recent interview. Five times since Jan. 1, Spillane has gone to Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters in Braintree to claim a winning ticket. The total windfall to date is $6 million. Each time, the state Lottery has distributed to the press and posted on its website the standard grip-and-grin photo of Spillane holding a large mock-up of the winning ticket and an actual check for the winnings. The truth is that, while Spillane is the one holding the checks, they're never made out to him. Each time, he is a stand-in for the winners. Lottery winnings are a public record. Win a big enough prize and the Lottery will distribute your name and photo to the media. But if a winner forms a type of legal trust prior to claiming the prize, the Lottery will publicize the … [Read more...] about Massachusetts Lottery winners increasingly opting to stay anonymous
