TODAY ON AGDAY

SEPTEMBER 26, 2013

 

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WHILE LAWMAKERS HAGGLE OVER A SPENDING BILL, HOW COULD A GOVERNMENT SHUT-DOWN IMPACT THE PRIMARY DEPARTMENT SERVING FARM COUNTRY?

DERRELL PEEL:

PEEL SAYS HE WOULD EXPECT EVEN TIGHTER SUPPLIES IN 2014, AND POSSIBLY INTO 2015.

CROP WATCH:

OUR THANKS TO DERRELL PEEL FOR HIS EXPERT ANALYSIS. DERRELL SAYS OKLAHOMA HAS RECEIVED SOME MOISTURE TO HELP WITH THEIR WINTER WHEAT SEEDINGS. SO HE'S HOPEFUL THERE'LL BE SOME WHEAT PASTURE NEXT SPRING. NOW HERE'S MIKE HOFFMAN WITH CROPWATCH, MIKE.

EYE IN THE SKY:

AS CROPS RACE TOWARD HARVEST, WE CONTINUE OUR EYE IN THE SKY SERIES. TAKING A BIRDS EYE VIEW THIS YEAR'S HIGHLY VARIABLE CROPS--ABOVE SOME OF THE KEY CORN AND SOYBEAN GROWING REGIONS OF THE COUNTRY. TODAY FIELD AGRONOMIST KEN FERRIE TAKES US TO THE SKY'S ABOVE CENTRAL ILLINOIS, WHERE AT THIS STAGE, CROPS LOOK MORE LIKE A PATCHWORK QUILT THAN A BLANKET OF HARVEST READY FIELDS.

DIESEL PIPELINE:

WITH FALL HARVEST RAMPING UP, DIESEL FUEL MAY BE MORE DIFFICULT TO COME BY.
A KEY PIPELINE SHUT DOWN IN JULY. IT SUPPLIED DIESEL TO STATIONS FROM ARKANSAS TO INDIANA. DRIVERS ARE ALREADY REPORTING CHALLENGES GETTING ENOUGH FUEL IN JUST ONE STOP--OFTEN HAVING TO STOP THREE TIMES TO FILL TANKS. THE COMPANY THAT OWNS THE PIPELINE IS REWORKING IT SO IT CAN CARRY ETHANE FROM THE GAS FIELDS IN PENNSYLVANIA DOWN TO PLANTS IN TEXAS.

ANALYSIS:

DESPITE RECORD DRY SPELLS IN JULY AND AUGUST, CORN PRICES FAILED TO RALLY.
ONE REASON--A LACK OF INTEREST IN COMMODITIES BY OUTSIDE INVESTORS. IN ANALYSIS THIS MORNING, FARM DIRECTOR AL PELL DISCUSSES THE FUNDS AND WHY THEY'RE NOT PUTTING MORE MONEY INTO COMMODITY MARKETS

CHERRY LEGACY:

THE TRANSITION OF A FARM DOESN'T ALWAYS GO AS PLANNED, ESPECIALLY WHEN UNEXPECTED TRAGEDY HITS TOO CLOSE TO HOME. IN THIS LEAVE A LEGACY REPORT, TYNE MORGAN TAKES US TO SCENIC MICHIGAN TO MEET A FAMILY THAT IS WORKING TO ENSURE THE NEXT GENERATION CAN THRIVE ON THE FARM.

FARM RECIPE:

SINCE WE ARE RUNNING OUR SPECIAL 'LEAVE A LEGACY' PROGRAM TOMORROW, WE DECIDED TO MOVE-UP OUR WEEKLY FROM THE FARM RECIPE TO TODAY. THIS IS A SIMPLE DESSERT RECIPE FROM ONE OF OUR REGULAR VIEWERS. BUT BEFORE WE DO, WE WANT TO REMIND YOU TO SEND-US SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE RECIPES. WE'LL SHARE THEM WITH OUR VIEWERS.
