The venerable county agriculture agent has been the best friend of Wisconsin farmers for more than 100 years, but steep budget cuts have reduced their numbers in a key ag-rich part of the state at a time when their knowledge and unbiased advice are in high demand.Grant, Green and Lafayette counties — three of the state’s top corn- and soybean-producing counties — have started the year without full-time ag agents even though the counties have paid the fees required for them by the UW-Extension, according to Rep. Todd Novak, R-Dodgeville.Around the state, the service is operating with 15 fewer ag agents than in 2017, according to UW-Extension data.While the Extension is in the process of hiring an ag agent for Grant and five other counties, officials in Green and Lafayette counties have been told there is no money to hire more agents for their offices this year, Novak said.Two other area counties — Sauk and Crawford — are also among the 23 state counties … [Read more...] about Shortage of agricultural agents creating void in farm-rich counties
Farming done deal
While experience points are vital as with any role-playing game, in Final Fantasy 15 AP is perhaps all the more important for the new skills and abilities they will bestow upon your party. If you've had a glance over the Ascension ability tree, you'll notice there are a lot of ability nodes to unlock, some of which cost hundreds of AP at a time, so you'll want to rack them up as soon as you can. Interestingly, AP doesn't just drop at a steady rate while you play, but is a resource to earn just like EXP, and there are always opportunities to get more everywhere you go.

It's the weekend, which means it's time for the PCG Q&A. We ask a question to our PC Gamer writers, then you answer the same question in the comments below. This week brings out the worst in us all: What's the meanest thing you've done in a game? Wes Fenlon: Knights of the Old Republic Knights of the Old Republic 2 took a nuanced look at the differences between the light and dark sides of the Force, challenging what you think of as good and bad and the justifications for your actions. It was thoughtful enough to make me strive to be better, to do what I thought was the right thing, even when that thing had complicated repercussions. But the original KotOR wasn't that thoughtful, and its more traditional light vs. dark breakdown made the dark side way more fun. The powers! The powers were so much better. And the rewards were, too! Why do a fetch quest for some dumb alien for 100 credits, when I could then bully him into giving me 200? Why would I listen to … [Read more...] about What’s the meanest thing you’ve done in a game?
By Mat Hall Published 01/02/2018 Unlike most RPGs, while your party members' levels are determined in the traditional EXP fashion, in Final Fantasy 12 The Zodiac Age your level actually has no bearing on your skills or abilities, and just increases your base stats.
