TODAY ON AGDAY

JULY 16, 2013

 

DROUGHT MONITOR:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. FARMERS IN THE CORNBELT HEAD INTO A CRITICAL TIME OF THE SEASON AS TASSELS APPEAR. BUT WILL THEY GET TIMELY RAIN TO HELP WITH POLLINATION?

KANSAS CONDITIONS:

THAT'S ALSO BEEN THE CASE IN WESTERN KANSAS. LAST WEEK FARMERS AT THE 3I SHOW IN DODGE CITY SAY THEY'RE ALREADY THINKING ABOUT NEXT YEAR. BUT WITHOUT RAIN-- THERE'S LITTLE CHANCE FOR A CROP.

EMERGENCY CRP:

THE KANSAS FARM SERVICE AGENCY IS OPENING UP C-R-P ACRES FOR EMERGENCY HAYING AND GRAZING IN 66 COUNTIES. THAT START TODAY--JULY 16TH. BUT, HAYING AND GRAZING IS LIMITED TO AREAS THAT WEREN'T USED THE LAST TWO YEARS. VISIT A LOCAL F-S-A OFFICE FOR MORE DETAILS.

CROP PROGRESS:

CROP PROGRESS THIS WEEK SHOWS WHEAT HARVEST IS 67 PERCENT COMPLETE. THAT'S A 10 POINT JUMP FROM LAST WEEK AND NOW 4 POINTS BEHIND AVERAGE. KANSAS IS 98 PERCENT HARVESTED, AND ONLY 1 PERCENT OF OKLAHOMA'S WHEAT CROP IS LEFT TO CUT THIS YEAR. LOOKING AT THE NATION'S CORN CROP, 16 PERCENT IS SILKING. WITH THE LATE PLANTING, IT'S NO SURPRISE THAT'S 19 POINTS BEHIND AVERAGE. 66 PERCENT OF THE CROP IS RATED GOOD TO EXCELLENT. WHILE THAT'S A 2 POINT DROP FROM LAST WEEK, THA'TS 35 POINTS BETTER THAN LAST YEAR'S WATER DEPRIVED CORN CROPSOYBEANS ARE RATED 65 PERCENT GOOD TO EXCELLENT, DOWN TWO POINTS FROM LAST WEEK'S REPORT. BUT 31 POINTS ABOVE LAST YEAR'S CROP CONDITIONS.
