WASHINGTON UPDATE:

THE PRESSURE IS ON IN WASHINGTON TO GET MAJOR LEGSILATION PASSED. AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

LATE SUNFLOWER HARVEST:

THE USDA CROP PROGRESS REPORT WON'T BE COMING OUT TODAY DUE TO VETERANS DAY.
AS OF LAST WEEK SUNFLOWER HARVEST WAS RUNNING BEHIND BY NEARLY 30 POINTS.
THE BIGGEST DELAYS ARE IN NORTH AND SOUTH DAKOTA.

NORTH DAKOTA SNOW:

SNOW FELL ACROSS MUCH OF NORTH DAKOTA TWO WEEKS AGO. THE WEIGHT OF THE SNOW IN THE SUNFLOWER HEADS TOOK MUCH OF THIS CROP RIGHT TO THE GROUND.
CLIFF NAYLOR RETURNED TO THE FARM ONCE THE SNOW MELTED AND HARVESTERS STARTED TO ROLL.

SUNFLOWER HARVEST:

AS OF THE NOVEMBER 4TH REPORT, ABOUT A THIRD OF THE SUNFLOWER CROP WAS HARVEST. IT'S USUALLY OVER 60-PERCENT. WHILE CUTTING THE OILSEEDS ARE SLOW IN THE DAKOTA'S. HARVEST IN COLORADO AND KANSAS IS RUNNING AHEAD OF THE FIVE YEAR AVERAGE.
