Whats News

With harvest upon us, here is a short list of reminders to Safely Share the Road with Big Trucks.

Do you clutch the wheel a little tighter as you pass a semi or other large trucks? You're not alone. Semis and large trucks navigate the roadways differently than other vehicles. Learning what they need — and what you can do — can help you safely share the road with large trucks.
What's Different About Driving Large Trucks or Semis?
Drivers of heavy trucks face a few difficulties ...on the road, including:
• Reduced field of vision. Truck drivers have multiple blind spots on both sides, in front of and behind their trucks.
• Longer stopping time. A large truck's size and weight increases its stopping distance. For example: If large trucks are going 65 miles per hour, they could need up to 200 yards — nearly the length of two football fields — to stop.
• Slower reactions. Most vehicles can merge quickly. Large trucks can't because of size.
• Wind vulnerability. Semis have a lot of surface area, making them harder to control when the wind picks up.
• Wide turns. Large trucks need plenty of room to make turns — especially right turns.
What You Can Do  Follow these tips to safely share the road with large trucks.
• Pass safely. Always pass on the left — the blind spot is smaller on this side — and maintain a steady speed.
• Give them space. Keep a safe following distance — four seconds or more — between you and large trucks to help avoid dangerous situations, such as sudden stops (and subsequent rear-ending), a truck rollover over in high wind, a tire blowout or a wide truck turn. Note: If you can’t see the trucks mirrors, they can’t see you.
• Be aware. Stay alert at all times, and keep your proximity to large trucks in mind as you share the road. In a smaller vehicle, you can maneuver more quickly which can help you stay out of danger.

Sales Agronomists and Agronomy and Energy Staff attend Sales Retreat


Genesis Cooperative Association announced a donation of $18,000 to the City of Cleveland Fire and Rescue for the purchase of a new water rescue boat. The donation was presented this July. The new water rescue boat will greatly enhance the emergency capabilities of the City of Cleveland Fire and Rescue.
The donation was made possible by Genesis and the Land O’Lakes Foundation through its Member Co-op Match Program.  The Foundation program matches the donations of Land O’Lakes member cooperatives, greatly increasing the funds available for community projects.

You can access the link to the BIG Event slide set on the Agronomy Update page.
