Bill Mullen with Seed Consultants says that variation will also be seen within the field this year and much of it will depend on soil types and hybrid selection.

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool boss Klopp slammed as ‘arrogant’ after Leicester post-match interviewby Freddie Taylor18 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been accused of becoming arrogant after his Champions League success last season.The German was furious in his post-match interview after Saturday’s win over Leicester City, slamming Foxes midfielder Hamza Choudhury for his challenge on Mohamed Salah.Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan believes the comments were aggressive and that there has been a change in Klopp’s demeanour this season.”Is he becoming infected by the disease of arrogance?” Jordan asked on talkSPORT.”I’ve noticed a slight change in Jurgen Klopp, in the language and robustness of his position.”I thought his post-match interview was very brusque and irritable – and I know that journalists can drive you mad with ridiculous questions – in his explanation of Salah and what happened to him.”I didn’t see him complain about what Trent Alexander-Arnold had done to molest a player by dragging his studs down the back of his Achilles.”He was very aggressive and on the front foot about what happened to Salah.” last_img read more

Image Courtesy: Pexels under CC0 Creative Commons license John Fredriksen’s oil tanker shipping company Frontline Ltd. has entered into memorandum of agreement (MOA) to acquire a 20 percent ownership interest in Feen Marine Scrubbers Inc., a manufacturer of exhaust gas cleaning systems.  Pursuant to the MOA, Frontline and certain entities affiliated with Hemen Holding Ltd, Frontline’s largest shareholder, have agreed to order FMSI exhaust gas cleaning systems for 14 vessels, with options to order an additional 22 systems at fixed prices. “The economic case to install scrubbers is very compelling, particularly for larger vessels. Scrubbers installed on existing vessels provide the same benefit as those delivered from the yard on newbuildings and our solution comes at a much cheaper cost,” Robert Hvide Macleod, CEO of Frontline Management said.“Additionally, this transaction allows Frontline to secure the capacity to source a large volume of scrubbers, which we believe will present a challenge to many owners as the deadline for sulphur emissions compliance approaches.” “We believe that this memorandum of agreement is indicative of both Frontline’s industry-leading approach to managing its fleet as well as the high quality EGCS systems Feen Marine produces.  We are proud that some of the world’s largest shipping and trading companies, including Frontline, Navig8 Group and Trafigura have chosen Feen Marine as their main provider of EGCS systems,” Bjørnar Feen, Founder of Feen Marine Scrubbers said.Feen Marine says that its open-loop scrubber system reduces sulphur emissions to 0.1 pct and offers payback period on investment of 6 to 18 months. The company also has a hybrid system in its portfolio which can switch from open loop to closed loop mode of operation.FM has offices and manufacturing plants in Singapore and Batam and further representation in Norway, China, and South Korea.The move comes in anticipation of the entrance into force of the IMO’s sulphur cap in 2020. The regulation requires that all ships trading outside of the sulphur Emission Control Areas (ECAs) start using fuel with a sulphur content of up to 0.5 pct, a considerable reduction from the currently permitted maximum of 3.5 pct, as of January 1, 2020.Ships using exhaust gas cleaning technology will be able to continue to use high sulphur fuel oil (HSFO) as a marine fuel.last_img read more
