TODAY ON AGDAY

OCTOBER 29, 2013

 

CROP PROGRESS:

 IT'S A BUSY WEEK IN WASHINGTON AS FARM BILL TALKS RESUME. BUT AS NOVEMBER NEARS, FARMERS ARE MORE WORRIED ABOUT GETTING THEIR CROP OUT OF THE FIELD. AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

ROACH AG NUMBERS:

AS WE FIRST REPORTED YESTERDAY, ROACH AG MARKETING CAME OUT WITH THEIR CUSTOMER YIELD SURVEY...AND THEIR DATA REVEALS A BIG CORN CROP FROM THEIR CUSTOMERS. IT SHOWED THE AVERAGE CORN YIELD AT 171 POINT 4 BUSHELS PER ACRE. THAT NUMBER IS 16 BUSHELS HIGHER THAN USDA'S SEPTEMBER ESTIMATE. SOME OF THE TOP YIELDING STATES WERE OUTSIDE THE CORNBELT - INCLUDING ARKANSAS AND TEXAS - WHERE AVERAGE YIELDS REACHED OVER 200 BUSHELS AN ACRE.

WHY THE BIG YIELDS:

MANY FARMERS IN CENTRAL ILLINOIS HAVE BEEN HARVESTING A VERY GOOD CORN CROP. GIVEN THE WEATHER, MANY ARE WONDERING HOW GOOD IT COULD HAVE BEEN IF IT HAD RAINED IN LATE JULY AND AUGUST. TODD GLEASON FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS HAS MORE ON THE UN-EXPECTED SURPRISES.

I80

TOMORROW ON AGDAY WE'LL CONTINUE OUR I-80 HARVEST SERIES. SOME MICHIGAN FARMERS HAVE REPORTED HAVING THE BEST YIELDS EVER. WE'LL SEE IF THAT'S TRUE.
