Caltex receives acquisition proposal from EG Group. (Credit: Pexels from Pixabay.) Caltex Australia refers to its ASX announcement dated 19 February 2020 advising that it had received a non-binding, indicative and conditional proposal from EG Group Limited (EG) to acquire all of the shares in Caltex via a scheme of arrangement (EG Proposal).The Caltex Board has carefully considered the EG Proposal, including taking into account the associated risks, costs and complexities. The Caltex Board has obtained advice from its financial and legal advisers and has also considered feedback from Caltex shareholders.The Board has concluded that the EG Proposal undervalues the Company and does not represent compelling value for Caltex’s shareholders.However, the Caltex Board considers that it is in the interests of Caltex shareholders to engage further with EG. Accordingly, Caltex has offered to engage further with EG in relation to a potential transaction.There is no certainty that the discussions between Caltex and EG will result in EG improving its proposal or in EG making a binding proposal.

Just 16 overs of play were possible as Ireland and Australia A were both frustrated by the heavy rain at Stormont on day two. Press Association That did not stop opening bowler Max Sorensen from completing his maiden five-wicket haul for the hosts in the 72 minutes of play as Australia made it to 312 for nine at the halfway point of the encounter, with star man Steve Smith out for 133. James Pattinson, who is predicted to give England fits with his pace bowling in the upcoming Ashes series, helped the tourists recover from 139 for six on Friday, but he also perished having made a valuable 66. Smith and Pattinson had rescued Australia from a potentially embarrassing episode in Belfast and the pair looked set to frustrate Ireland even further until the former was out in the 12th over of the day, edging behind an excellent delivery from Trent Johnston to bring an end to an innings that contained 19 fours and a six. Johnston’s breakthrough also halted the seventh wicket partnership of 157 made in 42.5 overs before Ireland finished the day with a spring in their step after claiming two wickets in the final two overs. First, Pattinson was caught behind to give Sorensen his five-for, with the South African-born seamer then taking the catch in the next over after Nathan Lyon had loosely driven at Johnston, who finished the day with figures of four for 68.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest No-till farming sounds simple. Just don’t till the soil, right?Farmers know better.Adopting no-till requires understanding how it affects drainage, soil structure, organic matter, weed control, and the application of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, all of which influence both yields and environmental impacts, said Randall Reeder, retired agricultural engineering specialist with Ohio State University Extension and executive director of the Ohio No-Till Council.That’s why the council offers a series of events throughout the year to support farmers interested in adopting no-till for its ability to control erosion, conserve soil moisture, minimize fuel and labor costs, and build soil structure and health. Done properly, no-till systems can meet or exceed conventional tilled crop yields while reducing fuel and equipment costs.The next event, in cooperation with OSU Extension, the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, and other sponsors, is the Ohio No-Till Summer Field Day, Aug. 31 on the Jan Layman Farm, 15238 Twp. Road 119, Kenton.OSU Extension and OARDC are the outreach and research arms of The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.Several sessions at the field day will address the use of cover crops in no-till systems, Reeder said. Participants will be able to compare different types of cover crops planted after wheat harvest earlier this summer.“Soil that has been farmed for 100 years has lost a lot of organic matter,” Reeder said. “For the typical farmland in northwest Ohio, the organic matter is probably less than half of what it was before they started farming that land.“But by using continuous no-till, cover crops, proper rotation and a few other techniques that provide a continuous living cover, you’re mimicking nature. You’re not just conserving soil, but building soil.”Using cover crops in a continuous no-till system could help alleviate phosphorus runoff and the resulting toxic algae blooms in Lake Erie and other waterways in the region, Reeder said.At the field day, participants will be able to see how cover crops affect the soil underground, including infiltration testing, by viewing a soil pit during one of the demonstrations.One session, “Digging Deeper into Soil Health,” will be led by Jim Hoorman, an OSU Extension educator. His talk will focus on soil microbes, particularly beneficial fungi.“During years of drought, or dry years like we’re experiencing now, it’s very beneficial to have these microbes in the soil,” said Hoorman, who will be leaving OSU Extension in mid-August for a position with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service as a soil health and cover crop specialist for Ohio and southern Michigan.“Just about every nutrient we’ve studied has something to do with these mycorrhizal fungi. They really enhance plant nutrition.”Hoorman said the fungi need five to eight months with some type of crop growing on the land to reproduce in soil. Corn and soybeans are normally on the land only four to five months.“So, there’s not much time to get a lot of mycorrhizae growing,” he said. “Planting cover crops can bridge that gap and allow the mycorrhizae to complete their life cycle and reproduce more efficiently.“Tillage destroys the mycorrhizal networks, and as a result, it can take three, five or even up to seven years for no-till soil to recover when a farmer changes from a conventional to a no-till system. Cover crops and no-till together speed up the process.”Hoorman’s presentation will provide detailed information about the process to participants.Among others on the agenda are Norm Fausey of USDA’s Agricultural Research Service in Columbus, who will offer a “Water Management and Water Quality Update”; and Dan DeSutter, an Indiana no-till farmer who has 5,000 acres of cover crops, who will discuss “The Economics of Resilience.”Equipment demonstrations include Aqua-Till, which uses ultra-high-pressure water jets to cut into the soil for planting, and a John Deere 2510H dry fertilizer injector.Early registration for the event is $40 by Aug. 22. On-site registration is $60.Registration includes lunch.A complete agenda and both online registration and a printable, mailable registration form are available at ohionotillcouncil.com/2016/06/29/hardin-county-event/. Anyone with questions about registration may contact Bret Margraf at [email protected] or 419-447-7073.The event is being sponsored by the Ohio No-Till Council, the Ohio Soybean Council, the Ohio Corn Marketing Program, the Soil and Water Conservation Society, OSU Extension, OARDC, NRCS-USDA, theHardin Soil and Water Conservation District, and Ohio’s Country Journal.
