first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Being a seed dealer, we get a lot of questions about conventional corn compared to triple stack corn. Guys were wanting to cut costs with conventional corn this year, but we have seen in the fields and heard from customers as much as 60-bushel differences between refuge corn and triple stack corn. The triple stack corn was better side-by-side.There was a wide range of yields by different hybrids. Most of the hybrids we have really leaned on in recent years still did fairly well. Our disappointment was with the newer hybrids that didn’t take the stress as well as some of our older hybrids. I don’t know how much you can rely on the data we saw this year. Some of the information on hybrids this year is not necessarily something you want to take to the bank.We had some Artesian drought tolerant hybrids from Syngenta. Personally I didn’t think it was dry enough at the end of summer that it would have hurt our corn, but after I shelled the Artesian hybrids it looks like the dry weather took more yield out of our corn and soybeans in this area than I had thought. We have seen good things with that Artesian technology. It doesn’t necessarily save 100% of your yield, but it does help with dry conditions.last_img read more

first_imgEditor’s note: This is one in a series of blogs detailing the construction of a net-zero-energy house in Point Roberts, Washington, by an owner-builder with relatively little building experience. A list of Matt Bath’s GBA articles can be found at the bottom of this page. You’ll find Matt Bath’s full blog, Saving Sustainably, here. If you want to follow project costs, you can keep an eye on a budget worksheet here. After passing the insulation inspection, I had permission to enclose the walls. I used gypsum drywall, the most common interior wall-covering product on the market. Drywall, best known by brand names such as Sheetrock, consists mainly of gypsum pressed between two thick sheets of paper. It is very easy to install and paint, is fire resistant, and finds a good balance between strength and flexibility. It is also an excellent tool for saving sustainably as it is relatively inexpensive and also 100% recyclable.RELATED ARTICLESDrywall Finishing Tips for Owner-BuildersHow to Hang Airtight DrywallBeazer’s Settlement Over Chinese Drywall I’ve learned a few lessons over the course of building my own home. One of them is that a good tool will almost always pay for itself in saved time and headache. I bought a few tools to help make installation easier and I highly recommend them to someone doing a project of this size. The first is a drywall screw gun. Each sheet of drywall takes at least 30 screws and I had more than 150 sheets to install. That’s more than 4500 screws! With a drywall screw gun you can just turn it on so it is always running. That way you can focus your attention on your left hand and getting the next screw ready. It also has a depth setting to ensure that screws are set to the correct depth without tearing the paper. Like most tools, it takes some practice to really get the hang of it but once I’d hung the first 50 sheets or so I really started to get faster. The second tool is a cutout tool, also known by the brand name RotoZip. It also takes some getting used to, but after using it for a while you really start to get quick with it. The tool uses a special bit that will follow along any solid surface, so you can use it to cut out window openings and electrical boxes, or just install end of wall sections long and use it to cut off the excess. It works very quickly and saves a ton of time. With more than 150 sheets of drywall to install, buying two specialized tools was well worth the money. Where possible, I used drywall clips instead of adding wood framing to support the drywall. On exterior walls, using clips allowed more room in the stud bays for insulation. They also were very handy on interior walls. There were many places where I would have needed to add an additional piece of wood to attach the drywall; it was much easier to screw in a clip. Using drywall clips instead of framing lumber made odd corners easier to assemble. In exterior walls, clips helped make room for additional insulation. Clips were especially handy as backing where I had a 45° wall intersection, as I would have otherwise had to bevel the edge of a stud. The beauty of drywall is that you really don’t need a lot of tools and you don’t need a lot of precision, either. The joint compound I will be applying next will easily cover up any gaps in the drywall. Resilient channel reduces noise Normally, drywall is installed on the ceiling first followed by the upper half of the wall, then the lower half of the wall. I had already installed the second-floor ceiling, but I still needed to install the ceiling for the first floor. To reduce the noise from footsteps upstairs I hung the drywall from  resilient channel attached to the bottom of the floor joists. Resilient channel installed between second-floor joists and the drywall will reduce sound traveling through the floor. Resilient channel is a strip of metal that works to decouple sound vibrations between building materials. If I installed the drywall directly to the floor joists, the vibrations from footsteps and the washer and dryer and water heater would carry straight through the floor to the joists and straight through to the drywall. The resilient channel breaks this direct path. It is screwed to the floor joists, and then the drywall is screwed to the resilient channel, which is especially designed to eliminate contact between the two materials. I installed the channel perpendicular to the floor joists every 16 in. I used a 14-in.-long block to help me space the channel as I put it up with drywall screws. It is crucial to make sure that all of the screws going through the drywall penetrate only the resilient channel, not the floor joists. The channel is easy to trim to size with metal snips, and pieces can overlap to create a splice. The installation was very quick and easy. Tackling exterior walls I hung drywall on the exterior walls next. If you recall, I had left a 3/4-in. gap wherever an interior partition wall met an exterior wall, and then installed ladder framing in the exterior wall. This makes both air-sealing and drywall installation easier. I could easily slide a 1/2-in.-thick sheet of drywall through the 3/4-in. gap. Top and bottom plates of interior partitions are held 3/4 in. away from the exterior wall, allowing drywall to slip in place without being cut at the intersection. Ladder framing in the exterior wall (visible behind the insulation netting) will support the last stud. Next, I added in the final stud and nailed it to both the ladder framing and the top and bottom plates. Now it was ready for the installation of the interior walls. The last wall stud can then be nailed into place. Dealing with arches and curves Hanging drywall on interior walls was slightly more complex because there were curves, arches, and niches to deal with. That’s the great thing about building your own home, though. You get to include all of the beautiful, custom features that you have always wanted. I designed the house to have a curved wall to wrap around a spiral staircase, as the photo below shows. This should be one of the more aesthetically pleasing elements of the house. But it was a bit of a pain, not only to frame but also when it came time to hang drywall on the ceiling and the walls. Drywall destined for a curved wall in the stairwell had to be scored to make the bend. Convex surfaces required dampening the back of the sheet as well as scoring. Drywall does bend, but not enough to make this radius. In order to make it work, I started by scoring the back of the sheet every 1-1/2 in. Next, I sprayed the back liberally with water, working it into the scored areas especially. The moisture dampens the gypsum, allowing it to flex more. I wrapped it around the wall and pulled it tight with clamps, and then left it to dry. A few hours later I was able to remove the clamps and the curve remained. At this point I was able to lift it into place on the wall and attach it with drywall screws. The arches I designed to cover the ductwork are created the same way, but the drywall didn’t require water because it was being bent away from the back side of the sheet instead of toward it (concave curves as opposed to convex). The gypsum snaps at each of the scored lines, but the paper on front remains intact, allowing the sheet to form into a curve. The important thing is to ensure all of the screws are put into the gypsum, not just the paper. The large curved wall that wraps around the spiral staircase also had this type of curve where the drywall is bent away from the back side. I created these in the same manner. Hanging these sheets was complicated by the fact that they were installed in the stairwell. For smaller drywall arches, I used 1/4-in.-thick sheets. Then comes the mud When you look at a long wall in a modern building, it looks to be one single piece of painted, textured drywall. In reality, any long wall is made up of several different sheets of drywall. Taping is the part that makes it all look seamless. Ready-mix joint compound like the kind I am using is made primarily of limestone and water, mixed with other additives like talcum (baby powder) and perlite (volcanic glass). Even though it is called ready-mix, it is highly recommended to add a couple handfuls of water and mix it really well with a drill-mounted mixing paddle before applying it. Some joint compounds contain plaster of Paris, which hardens a lot faster. It’s a good idea that before doing any taping you take some of this “hot mud,” as the pros call it, and fill any large gaps, especially in corners or inside edges. The hot mud comes in a powder form, and you simply add water and mix it up until it has a workable consistency. I used a 6-in. taping knife to apply the hot mud to any gaps over 1/8 in. wide. Before applying any drywall compound or tape, make sure that screwheads do not protrude above the paper. The other thing you need to do before you begin drywall taping is to make sure that all of the screws sit just below the surface of the drywall. I took my taping knife and ran it over each screw and if I heard a click, I knew it was sticking out and would interfere with the tape. I gave these screws a quarter turn or so until they were below the surface of the drywall. If you used a drywall screwgun like I did, there shouldn’t be too many of these to deal with. Start taping in the corners With the gaps filled and screws set, I was now ready to start taping. Starting in the corners, I loaded up my hawk with joint compound and used my 6-in. taping knife to butter up both sides of a corner. It’s best to load up only the front edge of the knife with mud and then hold the knife sideways to apply it so you end up with just a 3-in.- to 4-in.-wide streak of mud on the wall. You definitely don’t need a 6-in.-wide bead of mud, and that’s what you’ll get if you simply run the front edge of the knife down the wall vertically. As with many, many other skills used in building a house, it will take some practice to get the hang of using the side of the knife smoothly, but if you just keep trying you can become pretty skillful rather quickly. Use a 6-in. taping knife held sideways to apply joint compound in a corner. Follow this by removing excess mud with the knife held straight. I measured a piece of tape to fit the corner from top to bottom and folded it in half along the crease, then applied it to the corner. I removed the excess mud by holding the taping knife straight. It is best to start from the bottom and go up to avoid excessive dripping. Drywall paper tape must be mudded on both sides, so I then repeated the process to get the front side of the tape, applying the mud with the knife sideways and removing it with the knife held straight. I taped the flats next. The long edges of drywall sheets are tapered so when you have two of these long edges together, they create a tiny ditch. The tape fits inside this ditch so that after you are done taping you are left with a flat surface. As with the corners, the flats are buttered up, the tape is applied and flattened out, the tape is buttered, and then the knife removes all of the excess mud. When the tape is applied, it should not overlap the corner tape that was already applied. The last seam to tape is the butt joints. These are the places where the short edges of the drywall sheets come together. Unfortunately, they are not tapered. This means that the tape will sit on top of the drywall and create a hump. With several coats of joint compound, I widened this hump so it was so gradual that I couldn’t tell it was there. Drywall taping goes a lot faster when you use less mud rather than apply a ton of mud and then have to sand off all the excess. In addition, joint compound should be applied over the heads of all the screws. You can hit a row of them in just two swipes of the taping knife by applying mud holding the knife sideways in one stroke, and then rotating the knife straight to wipe the excess mud off with the front of the knife.

first_imgMarred by sharp division among its cadres and leaders over the party’s State leadership, the Congress in Haryana seems to be in disarray ahead of the Assembly elections which are due in October.Hinting that all is not well in the grand old party, State Congress chief Ashok Tanwar held a meeting in Gurugram a few days ago to prepare for the Assembly elections but none of the sitting MLAs attended it. Former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had organised a meeting of his loyalists last month apparently to put pressure on the central leadership to clear the air on the issue of State leadership.The two factions had an ugly spat over the leadership issue in a meeting held soon after the general election results, in the presence of AICC general secretary and Haryana in-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad, with Mr. Tanwar refusing to step down from his post.Divided houseA large section of the party, including the sitting MLAs, has long been demanding that Mr. Hooda be made the party’s State unit chief in place of Mr. Tanwar. Though the appointment of Mr. Hooda as the party’s State coordination committee chairman just before the general election pacified his supporters a bit, the infighting resumed after the party suffered one of its worst defeats ever, losing all 10 parliamentary seats to the ruling BJP. Political analysts believe that more than the factionalism, the delay on the part of the central leadership to settle the State leadership issue has hit the Congress harder. For almost five years the party has not had any units at the district and block levels, putting it at a disadvantage vis-a-vis its main rival BJP, which is in the process of appointing ‘panna pramukhs’ (page in-charge at the booth level) in the State.The Congress, which seemed to be upbeat over a year ago with huge turnout in the public meetings of its leaders, gradually lost the momentum as the party high command kept mum on the infighting and the leadership issue. The consecutive losses for the Congress in the municipal elections, Jind bypoll and then the general election have proved that the situation has only worsened for the party in the State.Though the Congress failed to win a single Lok Sabha seat in Haryana, it had led in around a dozen Assembly segments, mostly in the Rohtak-Sonipat region.“While the BJP in Haryana has already started its Assembly poll preparations, the Congress seems directionless. Both the Congress cadre and the leaders are in a state of confusion. Leadership change following a loss in election has been a norm. Though much precious time has been lost, the high command would do good to settle the issue at the earliest,” said a senior party leader.last_img read more
