Farm Journal Report

  • High School Students Work to Save the Bees

    4/27/2015 7:41:00 AM
    Colony collapse disorder (CCD) is a phenomenon with no concrete answer. It’s when there are no adult bees, but the queen bee, and usually immature bees are still present. While the reason is still a mystery, some are pointing to agriculture, specifically neonicotinoids, as the culprit. In this Farm Journal Report, we introduce you to a group of Missouri high school students working to solve this mystery in an effort to save the bees.
  • Planting Update: Field Conditions in Good Shape 4/20/2015 8:11:00 AM
    Don’t let the wind deceive you. Farmers in Western Iowa say they still need a dry-down., while some Nebraska farmers are still waiting on those rain clouds.
  • California Water Crisis: Pressure on Agriculture to Do Even More 4/13/2015 9:02:00 AM
    California agriculture is under scrutiny right now. It's a state that's very diverse, growing more than 400 crops. Nearly half the nations' fruits, vegetables and nuts come from that one state. They also rank first in milk production, but the current drought is jeopardizing all of that.
  • Possible Aftermath of Avian Influenza 4/7/2015 9:27:00 AM
    As Avian Influenza continues to spread, the immediate damage is unknown, but it's future trade issues that are more concerning. “Where it is really concerning, the list is currently 40 plus countries, at least, temporarily banned imports of U.S. poultry, and given the supply of total poultry on the year, if that were to go on for a prolonged period of time, it could be an issue,” says Close.
  • Acreage Battle: Possible Outcome and Impact on Price 3/29/2015 6:44:00 PM
    Analysts' expectations and forecasts for USDA's prospective plantings report is already moving prices. In this Farm Journal Report, we explore possible outcomes and how it could impact price.
  • Is Sorghum the New Cash Crop? 3/10/2015 7:06:00 AM
    During the 2015 Commodity Classic, there was one particular association that outshined the others in terms of demand. And surprisingly, it's sorghum. Growers are riding a wave of increased consumption from Asia. It's pushing prices higher and bidding out other crops for acres. In this Farm Journal Report we explore why demand is so strong and how long it could last.
  • Trade Talk: Association CEOs are Hopeful for Deals 3/2/2015 11:42:00 AM
    Trade is the backbone of many commodity sectors. It's what drives prices and keeps the U.S. economy alive. The recent labor dispute in the Pacific Northwest Ports brought that to light. The National Association of Manufactures warned a complete shutdown would cost the U.S. economy $2 billion a day. Trade can carry prices, but can also trigger the bears. In this Farm Journal report, we see why trade is providing optimism in our current bearish market situation.
  • Spring Forecast: Another Late Start to Planting 2/23/2015 2:55:00 PM
    Spring 2014 may not be as extreme as last year, but two leading meteorologists think the Midwest will have another late start to Spring. The Northern Plains and West could remain dry, which will create problems throughout the summer.
