The stats speak for themselves: he has more than 3,000 points in the Test and domestic arena, is the world’s top international point-scorer, and has crossed the whitewash on 29 occasions.After progressing through the age grades, Carter made his full debut at 21 playing in the centre against Wales, scoring 20 points, before vying with Carlos Spencer for the No 10 shirt at the 2003 World Cup.He made the No 10 spot his own the following year and in 2005 led the All Blacks to a Lions series whitewash, playing what was thought to be the ‘perfect’ game in the second Test, when his 33-point haul included two tries and a bewitching array of skills. His game management, broken-field running and unerring boot simply overwhelmed Sir Clive Woodward’s men.

New Zealand Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide A superstar since his early twenties in his homeland, Carter’s only international blotches came at World Cups. A shock exit in 2007 was followed by a torn adductor injury in 2011 which caused him to missed the knockout stage. He has since righted those wrongs however, after leading New Zealand to their 2015 triumph at Twickenham, beating Australia 34-17 in the final.

I try to talk to a lot of guys about what are your goals for this season. Maybe you want to average a certain yield number and then how are we going to approach that goal. What are we going to do to try to make that goal attainable,” he said.Schuman’s area includes customers between Ft. Wayne and Warsaw. He says intensive management was rewarded especially where the rains didn’t completely shut off at crucial times.“Where growers had used things like early planting, high fertility, some use of biologicals, seed treatments, fungicides, insecticide applications, they set themselves up to be successful, and where they happened to catch a rain, there were some soybean numbers in the 70’s and even approaching 80’s in spots. I had a lot of screen shots sent to me from yield monitors from guys who couldn’t believe how good some of these beans were doing.”Of course, some fields fell well short of that, mostly north of U.S. 30 where it was very dry in August. Soybean harvest at 99 percent is wrapped up, but corn is running about 25 percent complete, and early yields are also variable.“Well over 200 bushel yields in a lot of areas, especially south, and then even as we go north, fortunately we had areas that weren’t critically dry until more into August. So, you get into the northeast area, north of Fr. Wayne in Dekalb County and the northeast part of the state, they were dry all season and it’s really reflected in their yields. I’ve seen some very disappointing numbers from some of the guys in that area,” he told HAT.This yield check is brought to you by Specialty Hybrids, where it’s your field, our Specialty.
