TODAY ON AGDAY

MARCH 27, 2013

 

MONSANTO DUPONT LAWSUIT:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. TWO SEED GIANTS HAVE AGREED TO DISMISS LAWSUITS AGAINST EACH OTHER AS THEY COME TO TERMS ON USE OF SEED TRAIT TECHNOLOGY.

WHEAT UPDATE:

IT APPEARS THE WINTER WHEAT CROP IN PARTS OF NORTHERN U-S IS COMING OFF WINTER IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE. USDA'S "NASS" JUST ISSUED ITS MONTHLY PROGNOSIS OF THE WINTER WHEAT CROP. IN MONTANA - 44 PERCENT IS CALLED GOOD TO EXCELLENT, ABOVE LAST YEARS' 28-PERCENT. 'NASS' SAYS MUCH OF THE STATE'S WINTER WHEAT REMAINS DORMANT BUT 26 PERCENT WAS STARTING TO GREEN. WINTER KILL APPEARS TO BE LOW. AND MANY FARMERS ARE OPTIMISTIC ABOUT SOIL MOISURE IN THE TOP GROWING AREAS OF THE STATE. IN NORTH DAKOTA - MARCH BROUGHT COLD TEMPS AND DECENT SNOWFALL. THERE'S CONCERN FOR SPRING FLOODING, HOWEVER, NASS SAYS PRODUCERS IMPACTED BY DROUGHT ACROSS THE STATE IN 2012 WELCOMED THE ADDITIONAL PRECIPITATION. ON AVERAGE, PRODUCERS INTEND TO START FIELD WORK BY APRIL 22ND. THAT'S THREE WEEKS BEHIND LAST YEAR. IN COLORADO - OVERALL CROP CONDITION WAS RATED MOSTLY FAIR TO VERY POOR WITH COLD TEMPERATURES AND DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS PARTS OF THE STATE. SPRING WHEAT WAS 7 PERCENT SEEDED BY WEEK'S END COMPARED TO TEN PERCENT ON AVERAGE.

CROP WATCH:

IN EASTERN WASHINGTON STATE - FARMERS ARE MAKING PROGRESS WITH THEIR SPRING FIELD WORK. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS FIELD CONDITIONS IN TODAY'S CROPWATCH, MIKE.

COLORADO FIRE UPDATE:

IT'S BEEN AN EARLY START TO WILDFIRE SEASON. COLORADO FIRE CREWS HAVE NOW FULLY CONTAINED A WILDFIRE WEST OF FORT COLLINS. NOT BEFORE IT BURNED 13-HUNDRED ACRES. THE FIRE CAUSED ONLY MINOR INJURIES AND DIDN'T BURN ANY STRUCTURES.
