ABSTRACT
The article offers insights from agriculturist Dietrich Kastens who had been replacing iron with technology on the Northwest Kansas farm that he operates. He said that some farmers set back the adoption of technology due to possible "mental overload" while getting up to speed. He suggests that farm managers must not ignore the new technology just because of its cost or training requirements for it will help accomplish their goals.

    Full CI calculations to determine the 5D-5F separation in Fe using [5s4p2d], [5s4p3d], and [5s4p2d1f] basis sets show that the single reference SDCI procedure is accounting for most of the differential correlation energy in the 3d and 4s shells.
