Here's a sampling of what some folks are saying:
  • 3/20/2017 Mitchell County, IA: In response to Rock County, MN I am glad to hear there are still places where landowners are local. Around here most of the land gets bought up by investors hundreds of miles away. The sky high rent they demand is sucked right out of the local community never to return

  • 3/20/2017 Monroe County, MI: Winter wheat is top dressed last night and this morning. At 13 degrees this may have been our last chance until April. Wheat looks pretty good minus a few drown outs in the low pockets. Probably not the yield this year as last years record breaking yields on our farm.


  • 3/10/2017 Mcleod County, MN: I couldn't help but notice watching AG Day on 3-10 that they talking about wheat and farmers were racing to try to get 200 bu wheat. Chandler Goule said that low prices were pushing farmers to produce more? Why? All we hear about is the "burdensome supply" of grain we supposedly have especially in wheat and they want us to produce even more? Did they ever think about where prices would be if that happened let alone basis? We couldn't give it away.

  • 3/8/2017 Mclennan County, TX: Sunrise is a welcome sight. 24 hours straight and 380 acres of corn was a good run. Rain shut us down 40 acres short from finishing.



  • 3/7/2017 Mclennan County, TX: Sunrise is a welcome sight. 24 hours straight and 380 acres of corn was a good run. Rain shut us down 40 acres short from finishing.



  • 2/27/2017 Caldwell County, MO: We put are Nh3 on last week, ponds are getting low, lots of grain to be moved still, still see bags in the field.

  • 2/24/2017 Rock County, MN: Grain stored in the grain bins seem to be getting wet on top from condensation, the dock on 13.9 soybeans turns the 0.9% over in moister to a 4% deduction. I see they built huge new grain bins. I didn't see any signs of them removing the excess moister. The basis is negative $0.90 . The small communities are going under. The seed price increase in the past 3 decades is not the same increase as the yield increase. Where is there guarantee to justify the price. The high price chemicals are not doing their job. What is their guarantee. Remember the tax paying Land Owner spends his money here in the USA and in your local community so put him last on the list when cutting spending to make ends meet.
