TODAY ON AGDAY
DECEMBER 5, 2012

KANSAS CITY BOARD OF TRADE:

GOOD MORNING I'M AL PELL IN FOR CLINTON GRIFFITHS. THE WHEAT MARKETING WORLD SEEMS TO BE GETTING SMALLER AS A DEAL TO SELL THE KANSAS CITY BOARD OF TRADE IS FINALIZED. THE WORD "VOLATILITY" WAS ROUTINELY USED IN MARKET CONVERSATIONS THIS YEAR. BETWEEN THE DROUGHT, UNCERTAINTY OF THE FARM BILL, AND THE REGULAR FLUCTUATIONS OF INPUTS, VOLATILITY IS A PART OF BUSINESS THAT PRODUCERS MUST FACE. RECENTLY, I TALKED WITH CHRIS BARRON. HE'S PART OWNER OF CARSON-BARRON FARMS IN IOWA. HE’S ALSO A REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR TO FARM JOURNAL AND AGWEB-DOT-COM ON INPUTS. CHRIS WARNS - WE HAVEN'T SEEN ANYTHING YET.

ETHANOL:

THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY SAYS GRAIN SORGHUM IS NOW CONSIDERED AN ELIGIBLE FEEDSTOCK UNDER THE RENEWABLE FUELS STANDARD. MANY SORGHUM GROWERS ARE WELCOMING THIS NEWS.

CROP WATCH:

CROPWATCH THIS MORNING TAKES US TO SOUTHEAST UNITED STATES, WHERE SOME FARMERS ARE STILL BRINGING IN CROPS. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS FROM THE AGDAY WEATHER-CENTER.

CHRISTMAS TREE:

THANKS MIKE. 'TIS THE SEASON TO DECK THE HALLS. MANY FOLKS ARE BUYING A REAL, FRESH, CHRISTMAS TREE FROM THEIR FAVORITE U-PICK FARM. IT TAKES SIX-TO-EIGHT YEARS FOR A CHRISTMAS TREE TO MATURE. NEWLY PLANTED SAPLINGS HAD THE MOST DIFFICULT TIME DEALING WITH THE 2012 DROUGHT. STEVE GRANT FROM AFFILIATE K-Y-TV HAS DETAILS FROM THE MISSOURI OZARKS.

ANALYSIS:

IT'S BEEN A CHALLENGING YEAR FOR MANY COTTON GROWERS. DROUGHT AFFECTED FIELDS THROUGHOUT THE COTTON BELT. AND PRICES HAVE BEEN WEAK BECAUSE GLOBAL SUPPLIES ARE ABUNDANT. WHEN CAN WE EXPECT A TURNAROUND?  IN TODAY'S ANALYSIS, TYNE MORGAN TALKS TO STEWART-PETERSON'S NAOMI BLOHM {BLOOM} ABOUT THE IMPLICATIONS ON THE COTTON MARKETS.

TEXAS PECAN GROWER:
