TODAY ON AGDAY

SEPTEMBER 18, 2013

 

PREVENT PLANT ACRES:

FSA INCREASED IT'S PREVENT PLANT NUMBERS FROM AUGUST, BUT WAS IT ENOUGH

RICE GROWER:

SOME RICE GROWERS ALSO HAD A PROBLEM GETTING A CROP IN THE GROUND. IN ARKANSAS FOR INSTANCE, NEARLY 300-THOUSAND ACRES OF RICE COULD NOT GET SEEDED. TO PUT IT ANOTHER WAY - THAT'S ABOUT A THIRD OF THE RICE CROP IN THE TOP-RICE-PRODUCING STATE.

CROP WATCH:

ACCORDING TO USDA LATEST CROP PROGRESS REPORT, A THIRD OF THE NATIONS RICE CROP IS NOW HARVESTED. MISSOURI, MISSISSIPPI AND ARKANSAS ARE ALL SIGNIFICANTLY BEHIND ON THAT FRONT. CONDITION WISE, HOWEVER, 73 PERCENT OF THE NATION'S RICE IS IN GOOD TO EXCELLENT CONDITION. SWITCHING GEARS 37 PERCENT OF THE NATION'S SORGHUM IS NOW MATURE. ABOUT A THIRD BEEN HARVESTED THUS FAR. SORGHUM CONDITIONS ARE TRACKING WITH BOTH CORN AND BEANS. 54 PERCENT IS RATED AS GOOD TO EXCELLENT. ANOTHER THIRD IS FAIR.

MIDWEST OUTLOOK:

A DRY FALL AND AN AVERAGE WINTER. THAT'S THE LATEST PREDICITON FROM CLIMATE SCIENTISTS THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI. THEY SAY A WEAK LA NINA PERIOD MAY STICK AROUND THROUGH AUTUMN--HELPING STEAR THE JET STREEM WEST AND NORTH. BUT THAT SHOULD FADE BY THE WINTER MONTHS BRINGING WITH IT AN AVERAGE SEASON TO END 2013.
