TODAY ON AGDAY

FEBRUARY 28, 2013

 

COMMODITY CLASSIC:

GOOD MORNING I'M TYNE MORGAN IN FOR CLINTON GRIFFITHS WHO'S ON ASSIGNMENT AT THE 2013 COMMODITY CLASSIC. AS COMMODITY GROUPS KICK THINGS OFF TODAY IN SUNNY FLORIDA, THE LINGERING DROUGHT AND OTHER DAMPENING OBSTACLES COME TO SURFACE. AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

SORGHUM:

WHILE MANY GROWERS IN THE WESTERN PLAINS WELCOMED MOISTURE THIS WEEK, IT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH TO COMPLETELY RECHARGE THE SOIL MOISTURE DEFICIT.

WHEAT CONDITIONS:

AS LUST JUST MENTIONED, AREAS HAVE BEEN SO DRY THIS FALL AND WINTER, THE OVERALL WHEAT CROP IS STILL IN POOR CONDITION AND STRUGGLING TO STAY ALIVE. OUR PARTNERS AT AGWEB ARE ALSO WANTING TO KNOW THE LATEST WHEAT CONDITIONS. UNDER THE CROP COMMENTS SECTION OF THE SITE, AGWEB IS ENCOURAGING GROWERS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THE WHEAT CROP LOOKS AND CURRENT MOISTURE SITUATION.
JUST GO AG WEB DOT COM AND CLICK ON THE CROP COMMENTS SECTION OR EMAIL TO CROPCOMMENTS AT AGWEB.COM.

KENTUCKY GRAZING:

GRAZING ON WINTER WHEAT PASTURE IS A COMMON PRACTICE IN THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS WHERE SNOW COVER DOESN'T LAST LONG....TYPICALLY. BUT EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI, IT'S NOT AS COMMON. AT THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, RESEARCHERS ARE TRYING TO DETERMINE IF GRAZING ON WINTER WHEAT CAN PENCIL-OUT FOR RANCHERS IN THE BLUEGRASS STATE. JEFF FRANKLIN HAS DETAILS IN THIS REPORT PROVIDED BY THE U-K COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE.
