Other mitigating effects included diversifying product line. For example, information management products while still generating relatively low revenue grew over 40% year-to-year. Our expectations for the field solution segment in the third quarter are shaped around drought related uncertainty and the affect in farm confidence and aggregate demand.Given the forecast uncertainty we have established an outlook that is quite conservative against historical standards. At the same time we expect other elements of the segment to provide upsize which allow us to maintain an overall positive expectation. We also expect any drought effects to be of comparatively short duration without lasting effects on the farm economy and do not expect them to affect normal seasonal buying patterns as long as weather patterns assume a more normal patter later in the year.
