TODAY ON AGDAY

JUNE 14, 2013

 

BORDER SECURITY:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. IMMIGRATION REFORM HITS A SNAG AS THE SENATE DEBATES BORDER SECURITY. AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

IMMIGRATION REFORM:

GRASSLEY'S AMMENDMENT WAS THE FIRST OF DOZENS WHICH WILL RECEIVE DEBATE ON THE SENATE FLOOR. GRASSLEY SAYS IT'S NOW CLEAR THE METHODOLIGY FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM IS LEGALIZE FIRST, ENFORCE LATER.

MIDWEST STORMS:

A HARD CHARGING STORM MOVED ACROSS THE "EYE" STATES WEDNESDAY WITH 50-TO-60 MILE AN HOUR WINDS, NUMEROUS REPORTS OF FUNNEL CLOUDS AND LARGE HAIL. THE STORM PREDICTION GOT OUT AHEAD OF THE STORM, EXPECTING THE LINE OF STORMS MAY CREATE A DERECHO, BUT IT NEVER DEVELOPED, AT LEAST TWO TORNADOES TOUCHED DOWN IN NORTHERN IOWA THURSDAY AS A MASSIVE STORM PUSHEED ACROSS THE MIDWEST TOWARDS THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES. EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OFFICIALS SAY AT LEAST TWO BUSINESSES AND A HOME WERE DESTROYED IN FRANKLIN COUNTY, IOWA. NEIGHBORING WRIGHT COUNTY WAS ALSO HIT. BUT THERE WERE NO REPORTS OF INJURIES OR DEATHS.  THE FAMILY WHO LIVES THERE SAYS THEY ARE QUITE SHAKEN UP BUT THANKFUL FOR THE SUPPORT THEY'RE GETTING FROM THE COMMUNITY.

DROUGHT MONITOR:

 RECENT RAINS HELPED IMPROVE DROUGHT CONDITIONS IN SOME AREAS, BUT THE WEST CONTINUES ITS DRY TREND. HERE'S THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR. CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS SAW THE HOT AND DRY PATTERN CONTINUE IN SOME PORTIONS OF THE STATE THIS WEEK, WITH TEMPS REACHING 112 DEGREES IN RED BLUFF, CALIFORNIA. THERE'S A GLIMMER OF HOPE IN TEXAS, AS THE DROUGHT MONITOR SHOWS MINOR IMPROVEMENTS IN THE TEXAS PANHANDLE FROM MODERATE RAINFALL.

CROP WATCH:

WELL, AS YOU JUST SAW, PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY AREN'T ONLY DROUGHT-FREE, BUT THE SOILS ARE SATURATED FROM RECENT RAINS. CINDI CLAWSON HAS THE DETAILS IN THIS MORNING'S CROPWATCH.

MAYHAW CROP:

YOU MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH THE MAYHAW, BUT IT'S A POPULAR BERRY IN LOUISIANA AND PARTS OF TEXAS. IT'S TYPICALLY GROWN NEAR RIVER BOTTOMS AND WETLANDS.
THEY HAVE A UNIQUE FLAVOR WORTH SEEKING OUT. BUT THIS YEAR'S CROP SUFFERED FROM COLD DAMAGE. LSU AGCENTER CORRESPONDENT TOBIE BLANCHARD HAS DETAILS.

BPI LAWSUIT:

IN AGRIBUSINESS TODAY , THE CONTROVERSY OVER LEAN FINELY TEXTURED BEEF ISN'T CLOSED, AS THE CASE IS NOW MOVING BACK TO STATE COURT.

PROFIT BRIEFING:

WHILE THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT PRODUCTION PROBLEMS IN KEY CORN GROWING AREAS OF THE WESTERN CORN BELT, THE CROP ISN'T BAD EVERYWHERE. AND THAT'S WHAT THE MARKET APPARENTLY SEES RIGHT NOW. IN TODAY'S PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING, EDITOR CHIP FLORY AND SENIOR MARKET ANALYST BRIAN GRETE DISCUSS HOW THE MARKET IS NOT RESPONDING.

CENTENNIAL ONIONS:

WHETHER YOU'RE A MASTER GARDENER OR JUST DABBLE IN THE DIRT A LITTLE EACH SUMMER, GARDENING AT HOME CONTINUES TO GAIN GROUND. ONE TEXAS FARM HAS BEEN SUPPLYING THOSE GREEN THUMBS WITH SOMETHING TO GROW FOR 100 YEARS. ED WOLFF WITH THE TEXAS FARM BUREAU INTRODUCES US TO THE ONION MAN, WHO HOPES TO CARRY THE FAMILY FARM'S LEGACY INTO ANOTHER CENTURY OF SUCCESS.

RECIPE:

IT'S TIME NOW FOR OUR WEEKLY FROM THE FRESH FROM THE FARM FAVORITES RECIPE. THIS WEEK, OUR RECIPE COMES FROM DIANA ROHRER FROM ELKHART, INDIANA.
