TODAY ON AGDAY

AUGUST 25, 2014

 

OPEN HEADLINES:

COMING UP TODAY ON AGDAY - WHEAT HARVEST IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS...IT WAS TOUGH GETTING IT IN AND TOUGH GETTING IT OFF. AN UPDATE FROM NORTH DAKOTA... PLUS THE FINAL TALLEY FROM THE 2014 PROFARMER MIDWEST CROP TOUR. WE WOULD REALLY LIKE TO GET TO OCTOBER 10 WITHOUT A FROST. AND THESE YOUNG NEW ENGLANDERS ARE FINDING A FITTING CAREER BACK ON THE FARM. AGDAY BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE ALL NEW CHEVY SILVERADO THE 2014 NORTH AMERICAN TRUCK OF THE YEAR.

NORTH DAKOTA WHEAT:

CLINTON…GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WHILE WINTER WHEAT HARVEST IS NEARLY OVER…SOME FARMERS IN THE UPPER PLAINS STRUGGLE TO BRING IN THAT CROP...AND OTHER SMALL GRAINS. ...AND THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

CANADA WHEAT:

CLINTON…THANKS CLIFF. WHEAT FUTURES ENDED LAST WEEK ON AN UPTICK FOLLOWING LOWER EXPECTATIONS FROM CANADA. THE WORLD'S SECOND LARGEST EXPORTER EXPECTING TO HARVEST 26 PERCENT LESS WHEAT THIS YEAR… HEAVY RAINS BRINGING POTENTIAL OF CROP LOSSES AND HARVEST DELAYS... CANADIAN PRODUCTION EXPECTED AT NEARLY 28 (27.7) MILLION TONS DOWN FROM LAST YEAR'S 37 AND HALF MILLION.

CROP TOUR ESTIMATES:

CLINTON…AFTER FOLLOWING ALONG ALL LAST WEEK, THE PROFARMER MIDWEST CROP TOUR ENDED WITH ITS OFFICIAL PREDICTION FOR HARVEST. AND IT'S NOT FAR FROM WHAT USDA IS EXPECTING.

INDIANA FLOODING:

CLINTON…THE CROP TOUR SCOUTS JUST MISSED GETTING POUNDED BY HEAVY RAINS WHEN THEY MOVED THROUGH INDIANA. CENTRAL AND SOME NORTHERN COUNTIES RECEIVED ANYWHERE FROM SIX-TO-TEN INCHES OF RAIN THURSDAY NIGHT. THE STATE POLICE HAD TO TEMPORARILY CLOSE DOWN INTERSTATE 69 NEAR THE CITY OF MARION BECAUSE OF FLOODING. BUT IT WAS RE-OPENED FRIDAY MORNING. THAT INTERSTATE TRAVELS FROM INDY TO THE NORTHEAST OF THE STATE. METEOROLOGIST CINDI CLAWSON JOINS US NOW WITH CROPWATCH, CINDI.

TEASE:

CLINTON…JUST AHEAD, A CLOSER LOOK AT THE FINAL RESULTS FROM THE 2014 PROFARMER CROP TOUR. IT'S OUR WEEKLY PROFIT BREIFING.

CHINA IMPORTS:

CLINTON…TO THE EAST...OUR WEST...CHINA REMAIINS A MAJOR BUYER OF U.S. GRAINS...
IMPORTERS BUYING MORE THAN 3 MILLION TONS OF CORN, SORGHUM AND DDG'S FOR THIS MARKETING YEAR. DESPITE A DROP IN CORN IMPORTS AND DDGS, SORGHUM MAKING UP THE DIFFERENCE...CHINA FORECAST TO TAKE MORE THAN 30 PERCENT OF U.S. SORGHUM PRODUCTION THIS YEAR... MAKING IT BY FAR THE SINGLE BIGGEST USER FOR THE GRAIN…

ANALYSIS INTRO:

CLINTON…WE RETURN NOW TO ROCHESTER MINNESOTA AND THE WRAP UP OF THE 2014 PROFARMER MIDWEST CROP TOUR FOR TODAY'S PROFARMER PROFITBRIEFING.
HERE'S CHIP FLOREY AND BRIAN GRETE

MACH PETE:

CLINTON…LOOKING FOR A GOOD DEAL ON A USED COMBINE? AS MACHINERY PETE TELLS US IN HIS REGULAR MONDAY VISIT, THAT MIGHT BE HARDER THAN YOU THINK.

MACHINERY PETE:

THANKS, GREG. YOU CAN STAY UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST DEALS BY FOLLOWING PETE ON TWITTER OR LIKING HIM ON FACEBOOK. IN ADDITION TO HIS WEEKLY SEGMENT ON AGDAY, HE'S ALSO FEATURED EVERY WEEK ON AGRITALK AND AGWEB DOT COM.

TEASE:

CLINTON…STILL TO COME, ANOTHER STATE LOOKING AT THE IDEA OF LABELING GMO FOODS…
DETAILS IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY…

BB STRATEGO:

AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY STRATEGO YIELD FUNGICIDE FROM BAYER... PUT'ER THERE EARLY SEASON FOR AN AVERAGE SIX POINT EIGHT BUSHELS AN ACRE BUMP IN CORN YIELD.

ITC FARMING RESURGENCE:

CLINTON…THE MOVEMENT TOWARD BUYING LOCAL, FARMER'S MARKETS AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT AGRICULTURE IS HELPING CREATE NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN FARMING.
IN TURN, MORE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE FINDING THEIR WAY TO LIFE IN THE SOIL.
THAT'S BEEN THE CASE RECENTLY IN NEW ENGLAND AS EMILY ROSEMAN REPORTS.

ITC TAG:

CLINTON… ALRIGHT THANKS EMILY. UP NEXT...MORE..FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY...

CLOSE:

CLINTON…THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN. FOR CINDI CLAWSON AND OUR PARTNERS AT PROFARMER. I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
