For a long time Jetstar was the only airline flying between Indonesia and Australia that would not allow passsnegers to carry duty free alcohol with them on the flight. To the joy of many travelers Jetstar have recently changed this policy joining the other carriers in allowing alcohol to be purchased and carried on board.Jetstar claims the reason for the restriction for so many years was “When you purchase liquids over 100ml they can’t be taken through the security check point as they will be confiscated as per the liquid and gel restrictions enforced for flights into and out of Australia.” Jetstar stated “we don’t allow any liquids or gels that haven’t been screened onto the cabin, so we don’t allow duty-free alcohol on board. Other airlines may offer a service where they deliver your purchases to the boarding gate, therefore bypassing all screening.”Thankfully Jetstar too now offer this delivery service meaning you can purchase your duty free alcohol and collect it at your boarding gate before boarding the aircraft.
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest In the coming weeks as the weather warms, up winter wheat will break dormancy and will begin to green up. After a period of about 2 weeks producers should evaluate their stand in order to make management decisions for their wheat crop. Part of this evaluation includes counting tillers to determine if there is an adequate stand for achieving high yields. According an article in a 2014 C.O.R.N. Newsletter written by Laura Lindsey, Ed Lentz, Pierce Paul, “Yield potential is reduced if tiller numbers fall below 25 per square foot after green up.”So, what is a tiller? And how should they be counted? Tillers are additional stems that develop off of the main shoot of the plant. Primary tillers form in the axils of the first four or more true leaves of the main stem. Secondary tillers may develop from the base of primary tillers if conditions favor tiller development. On the wheat plant pictured above, you can count 6 tillers in addition to the main shoot.Tillers, especially those that develop in the fall, are needed to achieve high yielding wheat. The plant pictured above has the potential to develop 6 to 7 heads. A wheat stand of 1.65 to 1.7 million plants per acre with this amount of tillering (6 to 7 heads), a 100 bushels per acre yield is possible. While fall tiller development is promoted by timely planting and applying fall N, determining if stands are adequate and applying N at green up are also critical components in a management program that produces high wheat yields.
