TODAY ON AGDAY

JUNE 11, 2013

 

REDUCED ACREAGE:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. AS THE CALENDAR TURNS TO JUNE 11TH, PREVENT PLANT LOOKS LIKE A MORE ATTRACTIVE OPTION TO MANY FARMERS.

CROP PROGRESS:

MONDAY'S CROP PROGRESS REPORT SHOWS 71-PERCENT OF SOYBEANS ARE NOW PLANTED, A 14 POINT GAIN FROM THE PREVIOUS WEEK. IT'S 13 POINTS BEHIND AVERAGE.
ABOUT HALF HAVE EMERGED.
LOOKING AT CORN 63-PERCENT IS GOOD TO EXCELLENT - UNCHANGED FROM LAST WEEK. 95-PERCENT IS PLANTED. THE COTTON CROP IS STRUGGLING A BIT WITH 37-PERCENT CALLED FAIR. ANOTHER THIRD IS GOOD. JUST EIGHT PERCENT IS EXCELLENT. 88 PERCENT IS PLANTED. SHIFTING TO HARVEST - FIVE PERCENT OF WINTER WHEAT IS CUT. THE FIVE YEAR AVERAGE IS 16-PERCENT. LAST YEAR IT WAS 37-PERCENT HARVESTED. STATE BY STATE, TEXAS IS JUST BEHIND AVERAGE. BUT OKLAHOMA IS WELL BEHIND IN HARVEST. IN KANSAS, USDA REPORTS NO WHEAT HAS BEEN CUT YET.

MISSOURI CONDITIONS:

THIS IS A COMMON SITE THROUGH-OUT THE MIDWEST. IN THIS CASE, IT'S MISSOURI. FARMERS DEALT WITH THE SAME WET SPRING AS OTHER FARMERS IN THE NATION'S HEARTLAND. MISSOURI AVERAGED SEVEN INCHES OF RAINFALL IN MAY AND NOT ONLY WAS IT WET, BUT IT WAS COOL. THE MISSOURI STATE CLIMATOLOGIST SAYS THE TEMPERATURES IN MARCH THROUGH MAY MADE IT THE COOLEST SPRING SINCE 1984. THAT'S A BIG SHIFT FROM LAST YEARS HEAT AND DROUGHT. THE CLIMATOLOGIST SAYS THERE WAS AN ELEVEN DEGREE AVERAGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO YEARS - SOMETHING PAT GUINAN CALLS nothing SHORT OF INCREDIBLE.

CROP WATCH:

CROPWATCH BEGINS IN HENRY COUNTY MISSOURI. A FARMER TELLS AGWEB, CORN IS IN THE V-3 TO V-5 STAGE OF GROWTH. SOME IS YELLOWING AND NEEDS MORE SUNSHINE AND WARM WEATHER. BEANS ARE 20 PERCENT PLANTED WHICH IS A LOT FOR FARMERS IN THAT AREA. AND FROM OUR FACEBOOK PAGE, STAN WRITES THAT NEAR MARENGO WISCONSIN, THERE ARE ALMOST NO CROPS IN THE GROUND UNLESS ITS SANDY SOIL. HE SAYS LAST YEAR THE DROUGHT MISSED THEM FOR THE MOST PART. THEY WERE ABLE TO SHIP A LOT OF HAY SOUTH. THIS YEAR THEY HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN ABLE TO GET A FIRST CUTTING. TRACTORS ARE PARKED. AND FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS EXTENSION, WE RECEIVED SOME PHOTOS SHOWING SIGNIFICANT FLOODING IN THE NORTHEAST REGION OF THE STATE. THIS IS FROM LAST WEEK. THEY SAID THESE ARE RICE FIELDS IN CROSS COUNTY, ARKANSAS, WHICH LOOK MORE LIKE INLAND SEAS. THERE WAS ABOUT EIGHT FEET OF FLOOD WATER IN THE FIELDS.
