TODAY ON AGDAY

FEBRUARY 27, 2013

 

SUBSIDY INVESTIGATION:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT'S TIME TO INSURE GLOBAL TRADING PARTNERS ARE KEEPING THE PLAYING TABLE LEVEL AND FAIR.

WINTER STORM:

A DASTARDLY WINTER STORM IS LIVING UP EXPECTATIONS THIS WEEK. AS IT CHURNS NORTH, PARTS OF THE SOUTHERN PLAINS AND MIDWEST ARE STILL TRYING TO DIG OUT.

KANSAS CROP AND PASTURE:

AS I MENTIONED THAT MOISTURE IS GOOD NEWS FOR PARCHED FIELDS AND PASTURES IN KANSAS. THE STATE'S NASS OFFICE REPORTS AREAS OF THE STATE RECEIVED ANYWHERE FROM LESS THAN 2-TENTHS OF AN INCH TO OVER 2.5 INCHES MOISTURE IN THE LAST WEEK OR SO. THIS IS HELPING TO IMPROVE KANSAS' WINTER WHEAT CROP. BEFORE THE STORM, 36% OF THE CROP HAD BEEN RATED POOR TO VERY POOR, WITH ONLY 1% IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. RANGE AND PASTURE CONDITIONS WERE 83% POOR TO VERY POOR.

TEXAS CROP AND PASTURE:

MEANWHILE, FARMERS AND RANCHERS IN THE TEXAS PANHANDLE NEEDED THE MOISTURE.
ALTHOUGH, THE REMAINDER OF THE STATE, REMAINED RELATIVELY DRY. THE LATEST TEXAS CROP PROGRESS REPORT SHOWED 45% OF THE WHEAT CROP IN THE LONESTAR STATE IS POOR TO VERY POOR CONDITION. TOP SOIL MOISTURE IS STILL LACKING. 63% IS SHORT TO VERY SHORT.
