TODAY ON AGDAY
JULY 18, 2014
 
OPEN HEADLINES:
COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY - HOW WILL THE REST OF THE GROWING SEASON SHAPE-UP IN THE MIDWEST? WE WILL NEED TO SEE A GROWING SEASON THAT'S AT LEAST EXTENDED TO THE NORMAL POINT. IN THE PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING LOTS OF BULLS IN THE LIVESTOCK MARKET... FIND OUT HOW THIS SMALL MISSOURI TOWN IS FIGHTING FOR ITS ECONOMIC SURVIVAL THROUGH ITS HISTORY AND THE ARTS. AGDAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHEVY SILVERADO THE 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TRUCK OF THE YEAR.
DROUGHT COND:

IN THE PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING - LOTS OF BULLS IN THE LIVESTOCK MARKET…FIND OUT HOW THIS SMALL MISSOURI TOWN IS FIGHTING FOR ITS ECONOMIC SURVIVAL THROUGH ITS HISTORY AND THE ARTS. AGDAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY CHEVY SILVERADO THE 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TRUCK OF THE YEAR.
DROUGHT CON:
AS WE'VE BEEN TELLING YOU, SEVERAL STATES IN THE MIDWEST APPROACHED OR ECLIPSED RAIN TOTAL RECORDS IN JUNE. SIMILARLY, WIDESPREAD RAINS OVER THE PLAINS EASED DROUGHT IN MANY PARTS OF THAT REGION. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE'S CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER SAYS IT APPEARS THE EXTENDED WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FAVORABLE FOR MORE DROUGHT REMOVAL ACROSS THE REGION.
BUT IT EXPECTS DROUGHT TO PERSIST ACROSS CENTRAL TEXAS. ADDITIONALLY, DROUGHT IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST ACROSS MUCH OF THE WEST COAST BASED ON CLIMATOLOGICAL DRYNESS.
NOAA CPC FORECAST:
TEMPERATURE-WISE - THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER IS EXPECTING BELOW-NORMAL TEMPS ACROSS MUCH OF THE NORTHWEST CORN BELT THROUGH AUGUST AND THE REST OF SUMMER. IT EXTENDS INTO NORTHERN ILLINOIS. IN ITS 'THREE' MONTH OUTLOOK - TAKING US THROUGH OCTOBER - THE CPC EXPECTS BELOW-NORMAL TEMPS TO EXPAND ACROSS THE BULK OF THE MIDWEST AND NORTHERN PLAINS. USDA METEOROLOGIST BRAD RIPPEY TOLD AGDAY DURING A RECENT TRIP TO THE MIDWEST THAT DUE TO THE SLOW START TO PLANTING, A FULL GROWING SEASON WILL BE NEEDED TO FINISH STRONG.
RIPPEY:
IF WE WERE TO SEE AN EARLIER THAN AVERAGE FREEZE - SOME OF THE NORTHERN-MOST PRODUCTION AREAS LIKE THE DAKOTAS AND MINNESOTA, AN EARLY FREEZE WOULD TAKE PLACE IN MID-SEPTEMBER, SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THAT WOULD BE A BIG CONCERN, WE WOULD HAVE A LOT OF GREEN CORN AND BEANS I'M AFRAID. WE'LL HAVE TO TAKE IT DAY BY DAY, WEEK BY WEEK AND SEE HOW THE WEATHER SYSTEMS PLAY OUT. RIGHT NOW THERE'S NO SHORTAGE OF COLD AIR FROM CANADA COMING DOWN. THAT'S SOMETHING WE'LL NEED TO WATCH IN SEPTEMBER AND BEYOND.
ILLINOIS CONDITION CLINTON:
CLINTON…IF WE WERE TO SEE AN EARLIER THAN AVERAGE FREEZE - SOME OF THE NORTHERN-MOST PRODUCTION AREAS LIKE THE DAKOTAS AND MINNESOTA, AN EARLY FREEZE WOULD TAKE PLACE IN MID-SEPTEMBER, SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THAT WOULD BE A BIG CONCERN, WE WOULD HAVE A LOT OF GREEN CORN AND BEANS I'M AFRAID. WE'LL HAVE TO TAKE IT DAY BY DAY, WEEK BY WEEK AND SEE HOW THE WEATHER SYSTEMS PLAY OUT. RIGHT NOW THERE'S NO SHORTAGE OF COLD AIR FROM CANADA COMING DOWN. THAT'S SOMETHING WE'LL NEED TO WATCH IN SEPTEMBER AND BEYOND.
TEXAS RAIN:
CLINTON…AS YOU SAW EARLIER IN THE DROUGHT MONITOR, CONDITIONS IN TEXAS HAVE IMPROVED, BUT THERE'S STILL A LOT OF RED AND BROWN COVERING THE STATE. MEANING THE DROUGHT IS FAR FROM OVER. WELL, OUR FRIENDS IN THE LONE STAR STATE FINALLY RECEIVED MUCH NEEDED RAIN ON THURSDAY, BUT IN SOME AREAS, IT WAS TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING.
CROP WATCH:
CLINTON…IT'S NOT ALL CLOUDY. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS A MIX OF SUNSHINE AND HARVEST IN THIS MORNING'S CROPWATCH. GOOD MORNING, MIKE.
TEASE:
CLINTON…STILL TO COME, GRAIN PRICES MAY BE STRUGGLING, BUT LIVESTOCK BIDS ARE NOT. THE FOLKS AT PROFARMER JOIN US NEXT ON WHETHER THESE RECORD PRICES MAY BE COOLING OFF.
ARGENTINA STRIKE:
CLINTON…IN AGRIBUSINESS, THE WORLD'S THIRD LARGEST EXPORTER OF SOYBEANS AND CORN IS RUNNING INTO ROAD BLOCKS IN GETTING GRAIN SHIPPED OUT.
PORT WORKERS AT THE COUNTRY'S ROSARIO HUB WENT ON AN INDEFINITE STRIKE STARTING WEDNESEDAY.
THEY ALREADY HAVE COMPANY, AS GRAIN INSPECTORS TOOK THE SAME STEPS JUST A DAY EARLIER.
ACCORDING TO REUTERS, DISPUTES LIKE THIS ARE COMMON IN ARGENTINA, BUT IT DOESN'T HELP THE CURRENT DISPUTE THAT'S DISRUPTING GRAIN SHIPMENTS. ACCORDING TO REUTERS, LOCAL OFFICIALS SAY IT WILL BE A TOTAL PARALYSIS FOR AN INDEFINITE PERDIOD OF TIME IN ALL PORT TERMINS OF THE REGION.
PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING:
CLINTON… THERE MAY BE A SHORTAGE OF CATTLE RIGHT NOW. BUT AT THE C-M-E, THERE SEEMS TO BE NO SHORTAGE OF BULLS. IN TODAY'S PROFIT BRIEFING, THE GUYS AT PROFARMER TELL US IF THIS THEY THINK THIS MOMENTUM WILL REALLY LAST.
TEASE:
CLINTON…STILL TO COME, THE TOMATO CROP IS WITHSTANDING TOUGH TIMES IN CALIFORNIA. WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT SOME GOOD NEWS FINALLY COMING OUT OF THE STATE.
ITC LEXINGTON STORY:
CLINTON.,.. IT'S A SMALL MISSOURI TOWN KNOWN FOR ITS HISTORIC MONUMENTS.  IT ALSO JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE MY HOMETOWN.   LIKE MANY RURAL TOWNS, LEXINGTON, MISSOURI'S ECONOMY IS STRUGGLING. THAT'S LARGELY BECAUSE A MAJOR HIGHWAY WAS RECENTLY DIVERTED AROUND THE TOWN, MAKING TRAVEL MORE CONVENIENT FOR DRIVERS. AS UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI'S KENT FADDIS TELLS US, NOW HISTORY IS COMING TO LIFE SO THE TOWN CAN SING TUNES OF A BOOMING ECONOMY ONCE AGAIN.
ITC TAG:
CLINTON… THE AUDIO TOUR WILL BE AVAILABLE IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS STARTING IN LATE SEPTEMBER, DURING LEXINGONT'S APPLES ARTS AND ANTIQUES FESTIVAL. A FAVORITE OF MINE.
STAY WITH US, FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY IS NEXT.
