Just in time for cotton producers making variety selections for the coming year, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agronomists in the Rolling Plains have released their 2017 Replicated Agronomic Cotton Evaluation, or RACE, trial results.
There has been a good deal of discussion, confusion, and concern over new regulations promulgated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requiring electronic logging devices (“ELDs”) for certain commercial motor vehicles. How will these regulations impact agricultural producers, rodeo athletes, or stock show exhibitors? Relatedly, there are regulations addressing who is required to obtain a commercial drivers license and what records may have to be kept that, while not new, may impact producers as well.
If you are relying on the waiver, you need to carry a copy with you, which you can find here. The waiver applies only to the electronic logging device and hours of service rules and will expire on March 18, 2018.
