TODAY ON AGDAY

SEPTEMBER 13, 2013

 

CROP PRODUCTION:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. DESPITE A LATE SEASON FLASH DROUGHT, AMERICAN FAMRERS WILL HARVEST THE LARGEST CORN CROP SINCE 2009, AT LEAST THAT'S ACCORDING TO USDA.

GRAIN STOX:

ON THE STOCKS SIDE OF THE LEDGER, USDA RAISED GLOBAL CORN AND WHEAT CARRYOVER FROM LAST MONTH, BUT TRIMMED SOYBEANS. SOYBEAN CRUSH NUMBERS FELL BY 20 MILLION BUSHELS, AND EXPORTS BY 15 MILLION. BUT THAT DROP IN DEMAND SHOULDN'T HURT PRICES. THE EXPECTED MID-PRICE OF SOYBEANS WAS RAISED TO $12.50

PROFARMER REAX:

MUCH OF THE CORN INCREASE CAME FROM WESTERN CORN BELT AND PLAINS WITH YIELD JUMPS IN SOUTH DAKOTA, NEBRASKA AND KANSAS. THERE WERE ALSO SIGNIFICANT INCREASES ACROSS THE SOUTH. OUR PARTNERS AT PROFARMERS HAVE BEEN ANALYZING THE NUMBERS.

 

COTTON PRODUCTION:

LOOKING NOW AT OTHER CROPS, COTTON PRODUCTION ALSO FELL TO 12 POINT NINE MILLION BALES. THAT'S A 26 PERCENT DROP FROM LAST YEAR.

LUCAS:

MEANWHILE IN WASHINGTON, WORK ON A NEW FARMBILL REMAINS STAGNANT THIS WEEK.
HOWEVER, HOUSE AG COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN FRANK LUCAS TOLD AGRITALK IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW, HE THINKS THE HOUSE MAY TAKE UP A NUTRITION BILL NEXT WEEK.

USDA RIPPEY:

A WARMER THAN NORMAL AUTUMN COULD BE SHAPING UP. USDA METEOROLOGIST BRAD RIPPEY SAYS THERE'S GOING TO BE MORE WEATHER EXTREMES INCLUDING THE HOT WEATHER WE'VE BEEN SEEING. A WARM AUTUMN IS EXPECTED IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND PARTS OF THE INTERIOR NORTHWEST. IT'LL HELP LATER MATURING CROPS AVOID FREEZE DAMAGE

COLORADO MUDSLIDES:

IN COLORADO--NEAR BOLDER-- RUSHING WATER COVERED ROADS, COLLAPSED BUILDINGS AND LEFT AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE DEAD. MORE THAN 3 INCHES OF RAIN FELL WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. FLASH FLOODS RAN MUD AND DEBRIS OVER ROADS. CARS WERE STRANDED EVERYWHERE. COLORADO UNIVERSITY'S BOLDER CAMPUS WAS CLOSED THURSDAY. HUNDREDS OF RESIDENTS HAD BEEN EVACUATED UNTIL THE WATER'S RECEED. MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US FROM THE AGDAY WEATHER CENTER WITH MORE ON THESE RECENT RAINS.

CROP WATCH:

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS PICTURE FROM DENESE RUNYAN. SHE LIVES IN NORTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO NEAR THE SMALL TOWN OF HOUSE. THEIR FARM HAS GOTTEN NEARLY 7 INCHES OF RAIN THIS WEEK. THE LAST TIME WATER RAN HERE WAS BACK IN JULY OF 2009. THIS IS THE MOST THEY'VE EVER SEEN IN WHAT'S USUSALLY NOTHING MORE THAN A DRY DITCH. IN FACT, WE SHOWED YOU THIS PHOTO IN MAY BEFORE THEY GOT ANY RAIN. THIS IS THE SAME FARM, JUST A DIFFERENT SPOT. MEANWHILE, THE DROUGHT MONITOR POINTS OUT THAT LACROSSE, WISCONSIN RECEIVED ONLY TWO-POINT FOUR INCHES OF RAIN SINCE JULY FIRST THRU THIS PAST TUESDAY. THAT'S A NEW LOW - BEATING A RECORD THAT STOOD SINCE 1948.
PEDV RULES:

THE PORK INDUSTRY IS ROLLING OUT NEW GUIDELINES IN HOPES OF STEMMING THE SPREAD OF PORCINE EPIDEMIC DIARRHEA VIRUS OR P-E-D-V.

CORN MAIZE:

EACH YEAR AT THIS TIME, FARMERS OPEN THEIR CORN MAZES TO TOURISTS. AND WHILE IT'S FUN TO WALK THRU THE TWISTS AND TURNS, IT'S FROM THE AIR WHERE YOU CAN REALLY APPRECIATE THE COMPLEXITY OF THE DESIGNS. IT TAKES THE SKILL OF A CORN MAZE CUTTER TO TURN ORDINARY FIELDS INTO EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES.

FARM RECIPE:

IN OUR FROM THE FARM FAVIORITE RECIPE OF THE WEEK, WE'VE GOT A GREAT VARIATION ON AN OLD STANDBY. BAKED MAC AND CHEESE.

MOLASSES SPILL:

AND IT'S GOOD ON CORN BREAD BUT APPARENTLY BAD FOR FISH.
