“There are special steps people should take to help their lawn survive the winter,” said GilLandry, an Extension Service turf specialist with the University of Georgia College ofAgricultural and Environmental Sciences. Emerald zoysia grass and El Toro zoysia are like hybrid Bermuda but are a little morewinter-hardy. Centipede and St. Augustine are the most susceptible to winter damage. Leave most grasses about one notch above the normal cutting level. “Centipede is an exceptionto the mowing rule,” he said. “It should be mowed no higher than one-and-a-half inchesthroughout the year.” “Before you fertilize any growing area, test the soil,” said Wayne Jordan, head of the UGAAgricultural Services Labs. “A soil test will help you know the fertility status of the soil andmake an educated decision about how much fertilizer and lime you need.” “During late summer and early fall, when we are below normal rainfall, irrigation is the mostimportant step,” he said. “Even though the grass doesn’t appear to be actively growing, it useswater nearly the entire year.” You can protect your lawn from excessive winterkill, too, by insulating it. “With warm-seasongrasses, particularly in north Georgia, leave the grass a little taller than normal to go into thewinter,” Landry said. How much to water? The second most important step to a thriving lawn is to fertilize it based on soil testrecommendations. “Have a soil test conducted for a lawn every three years,” Landry said. If you want a great lawn next summer, it’s not too early to start working on it. Careful fallmaintenance can be the key to a flourishing green lawn in the year ahead. Your county extension agent can make soil sampling easy. Visit the county office to getinstructions and soil sample bags. “If properly maintained, Meyer zoysia has more winter hardiness than the other grasses,”Landry said. “But it requires significantly more water. The hybrid Bermuda grasses generallywill handle extreme temperatures better than common Bermuda.” “We don’t recommend St. Augustine grass north of the fall line,” Landry said. “Centipedegrass can be grown throughout the state if properly managed. However, many people in northGeorgia seem to have problems with it.” Don’t fertilize centipede as late in the fall or as early in the spring as other warm-seasongrasses, either. Don’t fertilize centipede in the spring until it has greened up completely. “When it’s going into and coming out of dormancy, keep the soil moist,” Landry said.”Probably about one-half inch every two weeks should be enough. But check the soil moisturewith your fingers.” If you’re planning to reseed or resod, some grasses grow better in different areas of the state. “Newly seeded common Bermuda grass needs special attention, because it’s very prone towinterkill during the first year,” Landry said. “Be sure it’s irrigated, the mowing height israised and it’s not fertilized too late in the growing season.” Irrigation is equally important in early spring when the turf starts to green up. The most important prescription for a healthy lawn, Landry said, is irrigation.
“Wiranto is a victim of terrorism. Therefore, the LPSK must ask for compensation for him,” Maneger said on Friday as quoted by kompas.com.He added that Wiranto had not asked for compensation, but the agency is required by law to request it for him.Read also: COVID-19 may reduce pro-IS activity, but attacks still possible: IPACThe regulation requires the agency to apply for compensation on behalf of victims even though the victims do not request it in the first place. It also requires the LPSK to include a letter of statement from the police or the National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) in submitting the request.However, Maneger claimed that a statement from the police calling the stabbing against Wiranto a terror act would be enough.“It will depend on the judges whether they will grant our request,” said Maneger.Wiranto was stabbed in the stomach by a man identified as Syahrial Alamsyah, also known as Abu Rara, and his wife FA after an event in Sindanghayu village, Saketi subdistrict, Pandeglang on October 10, 2019. The attackers were both linked to the Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) terror group, which supports the Islamic State (IS).Both attackers and another individual identified as Samsudin, also known as Ending, were named suspects for their respective roles in planning and carrying out the attack. The case is currently on trial at the South Jakarta District Court. (aly)Topics : The Witness and Victim Protection Agency (LPSK) has requested Rp 65 million (US$4,113) in financial compensation for former coordinating political, legal and security affairs minister Wiranto, who was stabbed during an alleged terror attack in Pandeglang, Banten, in October last year.LPSK deputy chairman Maneger Nasution said the agency had submitted the request to a high court as Wiranto, who is now chairman of the Presidential Advisory Board (Wantimpres), was eligible for compensation according to prevailing law.Law No. 5/2018 on Terrorism stipulates an obligation for the state to provide compensation to victims of acts of terrorism.
Airborne Oil & Gas (AOG), a manufacturer of thermoplastic composite pipes (TCP), has secured a contract with Addax Petroleum for two gas lift jumpers in West Africa.AOG said on Wednesday that its TCP products would be applied in the region for the first time.The Dutch-based company will supply two, 180-meter-long TCP jumpers to support Sinopec subsidiary’s operations in the Okwori field off the coast of Nigeria within an eight-week timeframe.This is the first time one of its TCP technologies were ordered through the “Jumper on Demand” service which sees long lengths of its jumpers being manufactured, prepared with dedicated end-fittings, and held in stock.This allows for a significantly improved turnaround of pipe supply, termination, and installation in any location.The scope of work marks the second order for AOG’s TCP products in Nigeria this year. The first was for a TCP jumper spool which is expected to be deployed by a supermajor in the region later in the year.Addax technical advisor Tony Kirkby said: “The flexibility and ease of re-termination makes TCP a great product for gas lift and other applications within Addax in Nigeria. It allows us to cut the pipe to length and install quickly, thereby ensuring that production is maintained with minimum disruption.”AOG VP for Europe & Africa Paul McCafferty added: “This scope of work for Addax involves the delivery of two TCP Jumpers within a very short timeframe, which in turn provides the support the Sinopec Group subsidiary require in the most optimal way.“Throughout this project, we look forward to further developing our client relationship while delivering our effective, high-quality TCP technology to support their future pipeline needs.”The Okwori field is located in OML 126 shallow water block in the Niger Delta. Although there are four fields on the block, only two – Okwori and Nda – are producing.Addax brought them onstream in 2005 via subsea wells, tied-back to the leased Sendje Berge FPSO.Spotted a typo?
