TODAY ON AGDAY

NOVEMBER 19, 2013

 

TORNADO CLEANUP:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. CLEAN-UP CONTINUES TODAY THROUGH-OUT THE MIDWEST AFTER TERRORIZING LATE-SEASON STORMS ROAR THROUGH THE HEARTLAND.

CROP WATCH:

CLINTON THE INTENSITY OF THAT STORM - ESPECIALLY FOR THE MIDWEST IN LATE NOVEMBER - IS CERTAINLY UNUSUAL. (AD LIB IF YOU WISH) ....AND WE RECEIVED PHOTOS ILLUSTRATING SOME MORE OF THE STORM'S FURY. THIS IS ONE FROM DAVE KESTEL IN MANHATTAN. HE IS ONE OF THE FARMERS WE PROFILED DURING OUR I-80 TOUR. THIS SILO IS ABOUT FIVE MINUTES FROM HIS FARM. DAVE SAYS THE STORM DROPPED AN INCH OF RAIN IN JUST MINUTES. PERRY HARLOW FROM KINSMAN, ILLINOIS SHARED THIS PHOTO. KINSMAN IS ABOUT 75 MILES SOUTHWEST OF CHICAGO. HE GATHERED-UP THESE CHUNKS OF ICE THAT FELL SUNDAY. HE PLACED A QUARTER ON THAT PLATE TO GIVE IT SOME PERSPECTIVE.

CROP PROGRESS:

THANKS MIKE...THE CROP PROGRESS REPORT IS STARTING TO WIND-DOWN FOR ANOTHER GROWING SEASON. CORN HARVEST REACHED 91-PERCENT THIS WEEK, FIVE POINTS AHEAD OF AVERAGE. AT 95-PERCENT COMPLETED, SOYBEAN HARVEST IS BUT WRAPPED-UP.
THERE ARE A FEW DELAYS IN TENNESSEE AND KENTUCKY. COTTON HARVEST REACHED 68-PERCENT, WHICH IS SEVEN POINTS BEHIND THE AVERAGE PACE. OF ALL THE CROPS REMAINING ON THE REPORT, SUNFLOWERS HAVE THE BIGGEST DELAY. IT'S 20 POINTS BEHIND. AS OF MONDAY, 65-PERCENT IS HARVESTED. AND WINTER WHEAT - STATISTICALLY IT'S ALL PLANTED IN THE MAJOR STATES. IT'S HEADING INTO WINTER AT 63-PERCENT GOOD TO.
