DROUGHT EXPANDS IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS.  PLUS, WHEAT HARVEST ROLLS ON IN OKLAHOMA. IN AGRIBUSINESS...PEANUTS BUY THEIR WAY ON TO SOUTHERN FARMS. WHAT AN OPTIMUM ROW SPACING FOR SOYBEANS--WE HAVE ANSWERS ON FARM  JOURNAL COLLEGE TV. AND GETTING NEW KNEE CARTILAGE FROM YOUR OWN  CELLS. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY  SILVERADO.

DROUGHT CONDITIONS, WHEAT CROP
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. DROUGHT CONDITIONS WORSEN IN THE  NORTHERN GREAT PLAINS WHILE SOIL MOISTURE IMPROVES IN THE CORN BELT. THIS VERSION OF THE DROUGHT MONITOR SHOWS WHERE THE CHANGES ARE.   THE SPLOTCHES OF YELLOW IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS - ESPECIALLY IN  NORTHEASTERN MONTANA - SHOW THE ONE-GRADE DETERIORATION. STATE BY STATE, MONTANA, NORTH AND SOUTH DAKOTA NOW ENTERING INTO  THE D-3 CATEGORY. AND IT SHOWS THE FINGERS OF ABNORMALLY DRY  CONDITIONS ARE NOW REACHING INTO NEBRASKA. THAT EXTREME DROUGHT  CLASSIFICATION IS A BENCHMARK TO INITIATE STEPS TO ALLOW EMERGENCY  GRAZING ON C-R-P ACRES. CUSTOM CUTTERS ARE CONTINUING THEIR ANNUAL NORTHWARD TREK THROUGH  THE GREAT PLAINS AS THEY BRING IN THIS YEAR'S WINTER WHEAT CROP. USDA SAYS 28-PERCENT IS HARVESTED. THAT'S THREE POINTS AHEAD OF  AVERAGE. KANSAS IS A COUPLE OF POINTS OFF THE 25-PERCENT AVERAGE. BUT TEXAS AND OKLAHOMA ARE WELL AHEAD IN HARVEST. BETSY JIBBEN TAKES US TO SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA FOR AN UPDATE. THESE DAYS CODY GOODNIGHT IS SPENDING A LOT OF HOURS IN THE CAB. BUT HE DOESN'T SEEM TO MIND. WHEAT HARVEST HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE  HIGHLIGHT OF OUR YEAR. THE CHATTANOOGA OKLAHOMA PRODUCER IS CUTTING AT LEAST 10 BUSHELS ON  THE GROUND HERE AND MANAGING A CREW WORKING THE LAND LIKE HIS  FATHER DID BEFORE HIM. I'M NOT IN CHARGE ANYMORE SORT OF SITUATION BUT I SURE I ENJOY  OBSERVING.USDA SAYS 47 PERCENT OF THE OKLAHOMA WINTER WHEAT CROP IS RATED  GOOD TO EXCELLENT. THE SAME GOES FOR OTHER KEY WHEAT PRODUCING STATES LIKE KANSAS.  WHERE LESS THAN HALF OF THE CROP IS RATED GOOD TO EXCELLENT TOO.  WHEAT CROP WASN'T EXCELLENT BY ANY MEANS. IT WAS JUST BARELY AVERAGE. THAT WAS EARLIER IN THE SEASON. GOOD NIGHT  SAYS IT'S EARLY MATURING WHEAT IS YIELDING SIGNIFICANTLY BELOW AVERAGE  WHILE HIS LATER PLANTED IS ABOVE. OVERALL HE EXPECTS A BELOW AVERAGE  WINTER WHEAT CROP THIS YEAR. WE DON'T KNOW IF THIS WAS THE LAST RAIN  WE'RE GOING TO GET. WE DON'T KNOW IF WE'RE GOING TO GET ANOTHER THREE  INCH RAIN TOMORROW. THE CROP WENT INTO DORMANCY EARLY THIS SPRING  WAS VERY DRY AND THE RAINS CAME TOO LATE BRINGING THUNDERSTORMS AND  EVEN HAIL DAMAGE. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE IT ON THE COMBINE WITH THE  TIRES ARE COVERED IN MUD ALL BEFORE MEMORIAL DAY. IN AN AREA WHERE  WEATHER IS ANYTHING BUT PREDICTABLE. THE THRILL AND EXCITEMENT OF ANOTHER HARVEST. REMAINS CONSTANT. I  FARMED MANY YEARS AND LOVED IT INTENSELY. SO IT'S A VERY. BIG. VOTE OF  CONFIDENCE MY SON HAD SOLD...AND MAY IT THAT HE LIKES FARMING JUST AS  MUCH AS OUR PASSION HAS ALWAYS BEEN WHEAT HARVEST. WE LOVE IT. WE  LOOK FORWARD TO IT HERE ALL YEAR LONG. EVEN THIS YEAR. THAT'S NOT AN  EXCELLENT CROP BUT WE STILL ARE EXCITED TO GET STARTED ON WHEAT TO  GET IN THE FIELD AND GET TO GOING. REPORTING IN CHATTANOOGA OKLAHOMA. I'M BETSY JIBBEN. IN THE MIDWEST - THE CORN BELT IS FENDING-OFF WIDESPREAD DROUGHT FOR  NOW. IN ILLINOIS DRY CONDITIONS WERE PARED BACK TO ABOUT 13-PERCENT FROM  THE PREVIOUS WEEK. THAT'S A 40 POINT IMPROVEMENT.

DICAMBA UPDATE
IN A FOLLOW UP TO A STORY WE'VE BEEN REPORTING THIS WEEK, THE ARKANSAS  STATE PLANT BOARD IS SET TO HOLD ANOTHER VOTE THIS MORNING ON WHETHER TO BAN  DICAMBA ON FARMS IN THE STATE. THIS AFTER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VOTE TALLY AND PROCEDURES WERE  RAISED. IF THE BAN IS APPROVED, THE GOVERNOR STILL HAS TO APPROVE IT. THE STATE AG DEPARTMENT SAYS IT'S NOW RECIEVE MORE THAN 200  COMPLAINTS FROM FARMERS ABOUT ALLEGED DRIFT DAMAGE.

DONALD TRUMP IN IOWA
AS PART OF THE WHITE HOUSE FOCUS ON TECHNOLOGY PRESIDENT TRUMP  PLEDGING TO INCLUDE RURAL BROADBAND IN HIS ONE TRILLION DOLLAR  INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN. THE PRESIDENT MADE THOSE COMMENTS DURING A  CAMPAIGN-STYLE SPEECH IN CEDAR RAPIDS IOWA.  HE ALSO VISITED KIRKWOOD  COMMUNITY COLLEGE WHICH HAS LARGE AGRIBUSINESS PROGRAM.    TRUMP WAS JOINED BY AGRICULTURE SECRETARY SONNY PERDUE AND  COMMERCE SECRETARY WILBUR ROSS WHILE HIGHLIGHTING THE NEED TO  EXPAND RURAL BROADBAND TO GIVE FARMERS ACCESS TO NEW TOOLS. THE EVENT WAS ALSO A SENDOFF FOR FORMER IOWA GOVERNOR TERRY  BRANSTAD WHO IS NOW U.S. AMBASSADOR TO CHINA. MEANWHILE THE FIRST UNITED STATES DELEGATION SINCE PRESIDENT DONALD  TRUMP ANNOUNCED A TOUGHER CUBA POLICY LAST WEEK STARTED ITS VISIT  TUESDAY. THE GROUP INCLUDES MEMBERS OF THE U-S AGRICULTURE COALITION FOR  CUBA WHICH IS PRESSING MORE AG TRADE WITH THE ISLAND NATION. THE DELEGATION IS  DOWNPLAYING THE POTENTIAL NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF A  NEW U-S APPROACH TO RELATIONS. "WE WERE EXPECTING IT. I THINK EVERYONE WAS BRACING FOR IT. I MEAN IT WASN'T AS BAD AS WHAT  HE WAS ANNOUNCING, REALLY ONCE YOU READ THE POLICY THERE ARE A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN IT,"  TINA SMITH, LT. GOVERNOR OF MINNESOTA: "AGRICULTURE WAS EXPLICITLY OMITTED FROM SOME OF THE  CHANGES THAT THE PRESIDENT EXPECTS TO MOVE FORWARD ON, SO IT'S A GOOD REMINDER THAT THERE  ARE LOTS OF OPPORTUNITY WHERE WE CAN WORK TOGETHER AND THAT'S WHAT WE ARE WORKING ON AND  EXPLORING TODAY." MINNESOTA LT GOVERNOR TINA SMITH SAYS THE TRIP IS DESIGNED TO BUILD  RELATIONS IN HOPES OF FUTURE MINNESOTA AGRICULTURAL SALES TO CUBA. SUCH SALES ARE STILL ALLOWED UNDER TRUMP'S POLICY, WHICH BARS MANY  TRANSACTIONS WITH BUSINESSES LINKED TO THE CUBAN MILITARY. THE PRESIDENT'S TOP TRADE NEGOTIATOR SAID THERE'S NO DEADLINE TO  REACHING A DEAL ON REVAMPING THE NORTH AMERICAN FREE TRADE  AGREEMENT. US TRADE REPRESENTATIVE ROBERT LIGHTHIZER SAYS IF TALKS END IN A  DEADLOCK THE U.S. WILL HAVE TO RETHINK ITS STRATEGY.  A SERIES OF PUBLIC HEARINGS ON THE NAFTA RENEGOTIATIONS ARE  SCHEDULED FOR NEXT WEEK. THE U.S. IS SCHEDULED TO POST ITS NAFTA RENEGOTIATION GOALS JULY  17TH.

CROP COMMENTS
THE DROUGHT MONITOR SHOWING IMPROVEMENT IN THE CORN BELT. ONE STATE  IN PARTICULAR HAS BEEN STRUGGLING WITH TOO MUCH MOISTURE. MIKE  HOFFMAN'S HERE WITH THE DETAILS, MIKE. GOOD MORNING CLINTON. INDIANA IS NEARLY COMPLETELY FREE OF DRYNESS IN THE DROUGHT MONITOR.  84-PERCENT OF THE STATE HAS ADEQUATE OR SURPLUS MOISTURE. BUT ALL THAT MOISTURE IS PROVING TO BE A CHALLENGE. THESE PHOTOS SHOW  WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE NEAR KOKOMO. OUR BETSY JIBBEN SAYS SHE'S BEEN TOLD  THAT A THIRD OF THE CORN IN THAT AREA HAS BEEN REPLANTED AT LEAST ONCE. 36-PERCENT OF THE INDIANA CORN CROP IS CALLED FAIR.  45-PERCENT IS GOOD  TO EXCELLENT.  AND COMPLETE OPPOSITE IN NORTH DAKOTA AS WE'VE BEEN REPORTING. A FARMER FROM HETTINGER COUNTY, NORTH DAKOTA POSTED ON AGWEB THAT  HE GOT FOUR-TENTHS OF AN INCH OF RAIN IN MAY AND TWO-TENTHS SO FAR  THIS MONTH. HE SAYS PASTURES ARE DONE-FOR AND HAYLAND IS POOR. AND NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN FORECASTS. HERE'S THE SECRET TO SELLING OLD EQUIPMENT. PETE'S PICK OF THE WEEK LETS YOU EASILY VIEW  CURRENT MARKET PRICES. JUST TEXT PETE TO 31313 TO GET STARTED!

AS TROPICAL MOISTURE MOVES ACROSS THE DELTA, WE'LL LOOK AT THE  SOUTHERN STAPLE AND WHY PEANUT PRICES ARE ENTICING ACRES IN 2017. AND LATER, ROW SPACING GUIDELINES FOR SOYBEANS ON FARM JOURNAL  COLLEGE TV. AND LATER, WE'RE OFF TO SURGERY TO LEARN ABOUT A NEW TECHNIQUE  OFFERING HELP TO BAD KNEES.

FLOOR OF THE CME
IN AGRIBUSINESS IT WAS ANOTHER TOUGH DAY FOR MARKETS THURSDAY-- LETS  SEE WHERE THINGS STAND AS HEAD FOR THE FINAL TRADING DAY OF THE WEEK. WE ARE SEEING SOME RED ACROSS THE BOARD NOT ONLY IN THE GRAIN  MARKETS BUT THE CATTLE MARKET AND THE LEAN HOGS REALLY TAKING IT ON  THE CHIN AS WELL. I WANT TO START LOOKING AT THE LIVE CATTLE CONTRACT.  AUGUST THE MONTH OF INTEREST. 113 IS GOING TO BE THE KEY LEVEL OF  SUPPORT TO ROUND OUT THE WEEK. THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL BREAKOUT LEVEL  IN RESISTANCE BACK IN APRIL. THAT NOW BECOMES SUPPORT 117 AND A HALF OF  THE TOP SIDE. I THINK YOU MIGHT FIND SOME VALUE. WE DO HAVE A COLD  STORAGE REPORT OUT LATER AS WELL AS CATTLE ON FEED. WE ARE SAVED THE  GRAINS UNDER A LOT OF PRESSURE OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF SESSIONS  REALLY THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS AS OF DECEMBER CORN CONTRACT SEEMS  TOWARDS THE LOW END OF THE RANGE 378 AND A QUARTER TO 380 IS REALLY  WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT AS A SUPPORT THAT NEEDS TO HOLD FOR THE BULLS  TO FIND SOME FOOTING. THIS WAS THE BOTTOM END OF THE RANGE REALLY  GOING BACK ALL THE WAY TO MARCH APRIL AND MAY. WHEAT HOLDING A LITTLE  BIT MORE STEADY THAN THE OTHER GRADES 454 TO 455 FOR THAT JULY  CONTRACT. IT'S VERY KEY TECHNICAL SUPPORT THIS IS PREVIOUS RESISTANCE  AND THE ORIGINAL BREAKOUT LEVEL WE TESTED AND HELD THAT THROUGH TODAY'S SESSION. IF WE ARE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO HOLD THAT LEVEL WOULDN'T  BE SURPRISED TO SEE BULLS PRESS PRICES BACK ABOVE FOUR SIXTY TWO AND  A HALF TO KEEP THE BULL TREND IN TACT. WITH THAT TROPICAL STORM MAKING IT'S WAY INLAND, SOUTHERN CROPS WILL  BE SEEING BUCKETS OF RAINS...INCLUDING THE PEANUT CROP. ACCORDING TO THE LATEST CROP PROGRESS REPORT, NEARLY 80 PERCENT  (78%) OF THE NATION'S SOYBEANS ARE RATED GOOD TO EXCELLENT. PRODUCERS EXPECTING A BIGGER CROP AND MORE ACRES BASED ON  IMPROVED PRICES.

AGRIBUSINESS
ASHLEY ARRINGTON WITH AGRI-AUTHORITY OUR GUEST HERE AT THE  AGRIBUSINESS DESK. ASHLEY LET'S TALK ABOUT THE PEANUT MARKET IT'S NOT  SOMETHING WE DO ANALYSIS ON OFTEN BUT PRICES HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN  FAIRLY GOOD THIS YEAR. THEY HAVE BEEN VERY IMPRESSED WITH PEANUT PRICES. IT KINDA TO GO BACK  JUST A BIT. IT KIND OF TAILS OFF THE FARM BILL PEANUTS KIND OF GOT A GOOD  DEAL IN THAT. AND THERE WAS SOME ADDITIONAL PLANTINGS WE FELT LIKE IN  ORDER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PLC PAYMENTS ESPECIALLY IN SOME OF THE  HISTORICALLY PEANUT STATES LIKE GEORGIA WHERE I'M FROM. SO THAT KIND OF  MADE PEANUT BUYING POINTS WANT TO DRILL DOWN ON SUPPLY A BIT SO WHEN  THEY DID THAT LAST YEAR, THIS YEAR SUPPLIES DOWN. SO DEMAND'S UP SO  LAST YEAR WE HAD CONTRACTS OF ABOUT 375. THIS YEAR WE'RE SEEING 475 - 500 IN SOME PLACES. SO OVER $100 A TON AND THAT'S GOOD. IS THAT OR  ENTICING MORE PEOPLE TO PLANT IT..OH FOR SURE. I THINK LAST YEAR REALLY  SOME PEOPLE WERE BY ALL INDICATIONS PLANT SOMEWHAT FOR YOU KNOW THE  PLC PAYMENTS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THOSE. BUT ALSO THIS YEAR I THINK YOU  HAVE SOME PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT HISTORICALLY HAVE NOT EVEN PLANTED  PEANUTS GETTING INTO THE PEANUT BUSINESS BECAUSE THEY'RE THE BEST  THING ON PAPER IN THE SOUTH. IN SOME CASES. YEAH. SO AS YOU GO THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THIS YEAR. HOW WERE THOSE FOLKS  GETTING PREPARED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS. AND ARE BANKS LOOKING AT  THAT FAVORABLY SAYING OK HERE PEANUT MAY BE A GOOD OPTION. WELL THAT THE BANKS WILL DEFINITELY WEIGH UP THE OPTIONS WITH HIM BUT A  LOT OF IT IS PEANUT EQUIPMENT IS SPECIALIZED EQUIPMENT. SO IF THEY CAN  AFFORD THE PEANUT EQUIPMENT OR THEY CAN GET SOMEONE TO CUSTOM  HARVEST THAT'S THE THING THAT THE BANK WILL LOOK AT. COTTON AS WELL. IF  YOU DON'T HAVE A COTTON PICKER IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PEANUT COMBINE THEN  THAT'S DIFFERENT THINGS THE BANK WILL HAVE TO LOOK AT TO HELP YOU MAKE  YOUR DECISION AS WELL BECAUSE YOU GOT TO FIGURE IN THAT EQUIPMENT  COST ALONG WITH THE GROWING CALLS. CALLS IN ORDER TO GET TO YOUR  BREAKEVEN.YEAH WELL IN BREAKEVEN IS THE NAME OF THE GAME THIS YEAR. YEAH FOR  SURE. IF WE CAN GET THERE. APPRECIATE IT. WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE  AGDAY IN JUST A MINUTE. AGDAY IS POWERED BY RAM TRUCKS - AMERICA'S LONGEST LASTING PICKUPS.

WEATHER
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY HERE WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. AND  MIKE AS WE LOOK AT THE DROUGHT MONITOR REALLY IT'S THAT NORTHERN  PLAINS AREA WHERE WE'RE SEEING IT WORSENING THE MOST. YEAH IT REALLY IS. THERE ARE POCKETS ELSEWHERE BUT THERE ALWAYS ARE  BUT THAT'S AN AMAZING MAP WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT IN TOTAL. NOW A MONTH AGO  IT WAS NOT NEARLY THIS BAD IN THE DAKOTAS OR EASTERN MONTANA BUT IT  WAS IN FLORIDA AND OTHER PARTS OF THE SOUTHEAST SO WE GO BACK FOUR  WEEKS AND YOU CAN SEE THE EXTREME TO EXCEPTIONAL DROUGHT PARTS OF  CENTRAL AND SOUTH FLORIDA, SOUTHERN GEORGIA OVER THE LAST FOUR  WEEKS THAT HAS JUST COMPLETELY SHRUNK TO ALMOST NOTHING WHEREAS  IT'S BEEN EXPANDING ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS. ELSEWHERE THERE ARE  POCKETS LIKE WE'VE SAID ACROSS PARTS OF THE MIDWEST. IT WAS STARTING  TO TURN DRY A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO BUT NOW THAT'S GOTTEN BETTER. PARTS OF ILLINOIS AND INDIANA AS WELL. WE ARE A LITTLE CONCERNED THERE  WITH THE PANHANDLE OF TEXAS AND THOSE AREAS WE'LL HAVE TO WATCH THAT.  BUT ALL IN ALL THAT'S NOT A BAD LOOKING MAP FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.  HERE'S THE REMNANTS OF CINDY RIGHT OVER CENTRAL ARKANSAS THIS  MORNING STORM SYSTEM OFF TO THE NORTH OVER THE EASTERN GREAT LAKES  WITH A COLD FRONT THAT WILL BE THE REAL FOCUS FOR THE SHOWERS AND  THUNDERSTORMS TODAY AND OF COURSE CLOSER TO CINDY ARE THE  REMNANTS OF CINDY IS GOING TO BE WHERE THE HEAVIEST RAIN IS GOING TO  FALL. THERE'S LATE IN THE DAY TODAY AS WE HEAD THROUGH TONIGHT AND SEE  THE DRIER AIR (EXCUSE ME) COMING IN ONCE AGAIN TO MOST OF THE CENTRAL  MISSISSIPPI VALLEY EVENTUALLY THE OHIO VALLEY. WE WILL HAVE SOME KIND OF  A BIG UPPER LEVEL LOW STILL SITTING OVER HUDSON BAY SO THERE WILL BE  SOME SCATTERED MAINLY AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSHOWERS AS  WE HEAD INTO THE WEEKEND. BUT FOR THE MOST PART BEHIND THIS FRONT IT IS  GOING TO BE DRY OVERALL. THOSE WILL BE VERY HIT AND MISS. NOT NEARLY AS  BAD AS WHAT IT'S PROBABLY SHOWING THERE. THERE'S A PRECIPITATION  ESTIMATE OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS. HEAVIEST AMOUNTS OBVIOUSLY WITH THE  REMNANTS OF CINDY ADDING IN THE NEXT 36 HOURS. BOY YOU CAN PICK OUT  THE PATH FOR THE GOOD THERE CAN'T YA RIGHT ACROSS KENTUCKY INTO WEST  VIRGINIA EVENTUALLY INTO SOUTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF PENNSYLVANIA. BUT  THERE IS SOME HEAVY RAIN. OTHER PLACES AS WELL A LITTLE BIT THERE  ACROSS CENTRAL WISCONSIN AND MICHIGAN. TEMPERATURES THIS  AFTERNOON. BOY LOOK AT THE PURPLE AREAS THOSE ARE TRIPLE DIGIT. LARGE  AREA INCLUDING MUCH OF THE RIO GRANDE. LOT MORE PLEASANT BEHIND THAT  FRONT 70S AND 80S FOR THE CENTRAL PLAINS SOME 60S SHOWING UP IN THE  NORTHERN PLAINS 40S FOR LOWS TONIGHT IN THE WESTERN DAKOTAS. STILL  SEE IT'S MUGGY IN THE SOUTHEAST AND THEN HIGHS TOMORROW AFTERNOON.  LOOK AT THAT ONLY 60 IN BISMARCK YOU'RE TALKING 60S AND 70S ACROSS MOST  OF THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL PLAINS WHICH ARE PRETTY PLEASANT  NUMBERS FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. THERE'S THE BIG TROUGH THAT WE  TALKED ABOUT SITTING OVER HUDSON BAY AND WE GET LITTLE PIECES OF  ENERGY ROTATING THROUGH THE GREAT LAKES INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. WE  HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A WARM UP THERE TRYING TO COME INTO THE EAST AS WE  HEAD THROUGH LATE IN THE WEEK BUT STILL TRYING TO COOL DOWN IN THE  NORTHERN PLAINS AT THAT POINT. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. LET'S  TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST OF ALL FOR PUEBLO COLORADO  COOL WITH TIMES OF SUN AND CLOUDS HIGH AROUND 70 DEGREES WASHINGTON  IOWA BREEZY AND LESS HUMID WITH CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE HIGH OF 78 AND  CHARLOTTE NORTH CAROLINA A MIX OF SUN AND CLOUDS. WARM AND HUMID  HIGH OF 89.

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK WE'LL TALK ABOUT ROW SPACING FOR SOYBEANS  INCLUDING WHAT RESEARCH SAYS IS OPTIMAL. AND LATER, A NEW KIND OF KNEE OF SURGERY OFFERS TO HELP REBUILD AND  REGROW CARTILAGE INSIDE THE PATIENT'S BODY. DETAILS ON IN THE COUNTRY. VISIT FARM JOURNAL PRO.COM.  TRUSTED ANALYSIS, PROFESSIONAL INSIGHT. FARM JOURNAL  PRO.COM.

FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV
THIS WEEK ON FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV, WE HEAD TO THE SOYBEAN FIELDS  OF INDIANA FOR A LESSON IN SPACING WITH PURDUE EXTENSION'S SHAUN  CASTEEL. SHAUN LET'S TALK ABOUT ROW SPACING AND SOYBEANS BECAUSE IN THE  RESEARCH YOU'VE DONE THERE'S KIND OF A DIFFERENCE SO I THINK THERE'S A  LOT OF IT DEPENDS ON YOUR SETUP AND WHERE YOU ARE. BUT BUT THERE IS  SOME DIFFERENCES. YES THERE IS. SO MY GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS IS THE PLANT NARROWS TO 15 INCHES OR  NARROW AND PLANT TIMELY. OK. NOW THERE IS A LOT OF FOLKS THAT ARE  MOVING TO 30 INCH BEANS BECAUSE THAT'S A BIGGER RIG THEY CAN COVER  MORE GROUND IN A HURRY WHICH I CAN APPRECIATE IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE  ABLE TO GET OUT AND PLANT TIMELY WITH THAT. LET'S SAY LATE APRIL EARLY  MAY FIELD CONDITIONS ARE FIT. VERSUS WAIT UNTIL THE DRILL IS READY AND IT'S THE 20TH OF MAY. THAT'S A DIFFERENT SCENARIO. BUT IF YOU CAN GET OUT  THERE AT THE SAME TIME  15S OR NARROWER GOING TO WIN OUT. USUALLY  ABOUT FIVE TO 10 PERCENT YIELD LEVEL. OK SO FIVE TO 10 PERCENT GAIN BY  HAVING A 15 VERSUS A 30 BUT REALLY FOR YOU TIMELINESS IS ABOUT AS  IMPORTANT AS THE TIMELINESS TIMELY PLANTING OF BEANS IS NOT WAITING  UNTIL CORNS DONE AND PLANT BEANS WE NEED TO BE OUT THERE THINKING  ABOUT IN LATE APRIL OR EARLY MAY. FOR A LOT OF THIS MIDWESTERN BELT SO  WE THINK ABOUT IOWA ILLINOIS INDIANA CORRIDOR.THAT'S REALLY WHERE WE  NEED TO BE SURE LIKE THE BEANS THAT WE HAVE HERE ON THIRTY'S THEY'RE  LOOKING PRETTY GOOD. BUT THE IDEA IS YOU WANT TO HAVE GREEN TO THE  EYE BY THE FOURTH OF JULY. SO IN OTHER WORDS YOU WANT TO HAVE A  CANOPY ABOUT THE TIME IT'S THE FOURTH OF JULY BY THE TIME IT'S SHOULD BE  FLOWERING OUT THE TOP. THAT'S REALLY YOUR GOAL. OK. AND SO IF YOU CAN  DO THAT AND THIRTY'S GREAT. WELL WE'RE ON THE FOURTH OF JULY AND THESE  30 INCH MEANS AREN'T CANOPIED RIGHT. NO WE STILL SEE LOTS OF THERE ARE  LOTS OF AREA HERE THERE PROBABLY ANOTHER 30 OR 40 PERCENT OF AREA TO  COVER RIGHT NOW IF YOU GO OVER AND LOOK AT YOUR 15. SAME TIME SAME  TIME SAME POPULATION. THEY DON'T LOOK NEARLY AS TALL. THEY'RE NOT BUT  THEY'RE THEY'RE CANOPY AND MUCH FASTER. THESE ARE PLANTED STILL ABOUT  THE MIDDLE OF MAY NOT AS EARLY AS I'D LIKE BUT YOU'RE CATCHING MORE  COVERAGE OF THE GROUND RIGHT AND YOU STILL MAYBE HAVE 15 20 PERCENT  TO COVER RIGHT. IF YOU LOOK AT THE COMPARISON OF THE TWO  15S OR  CLOSER ABOUT 25 DAYS FASTER THAN 30. REALLY. OK. SO ONCE WE GET THAT  ROW CLOSED THEN WE CAN KIND OF START CUTTING DOWN ON THE  COMPETITION. THAT'S RIGHT SO YOU'RE LOOKING AT WEED SUPPRESSION  YOU'RE LOOKING AT GOOD SUNLIGHT INTERCEPTION. SO THEN IT'S GOING  TOWARD THE LEAF DEVELOPMENT AS WELL AS A FLOWER DEVELOPMENT THAT'S  GO TO YOUR MONEY MAKERS PODS AND GRAIN.

IN THE COUNTRY
IN THE COUNTRY - SPONSORED BY KUBOTA.  DISCOVER THE POWER BEHIND THE M6 SERIES AT  KUBOTA.COM. THROUGH THE YEARS, I'VE WITNESSED AND KNOWN PLENTY OF PEOPLE WITH  KNEE PROBLEMS. AND WHILE SURGERY IS USUALLY THE PREFERRED COURSE OF ACTION, THE  RESULTS ARE OFTEN LIMITED. A SPORTS MEDICINE ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON AT THE MISSOURI ORTHOPAEDIC INSTITUTE, JUST RECENTLY PERFORMED A FIRST OF IT'S KIND SURGERY. THE PROCEDURE THAT USES A THIN PATCH TO HOLD THE PATIENT'S OWN  CARTILAGE CELLS IN PLACE AS THEY GROW. IT IS THE FIRST TISSUE-ENGINEERED CARTILAGE SCAFFOLD USING THE PATIENT'S  OWN CELLS TO BE APPROVED BY THE U.S. FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION. SETH SHERMAN, MD\ MU ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEON  "THOUGH A SMALL SCOPE PROCEDURE, WE TAKE YOUR CELLS FROM A NON-ESSENTIAL ASPECT  OF YOUR OWN KNEE, SO THEY WON'T CAUSE HARM AND THEN WE BRING IT TO A LABORATORY AND WE  ACTUALLY EXPAND AND MULTIPLY YOUR OWN CELLS AND IMPLANT THEM BACK IN." "THE TECHNOLOGY OF TRYING TO TAKE YOUR OWN CARTILAGE CELLS AND GROW THEM OUTSIDE  OF THE BODY PUTTING THEM ON A SCAFFOLD OR MATRIX AND PUTTING THEM BACK IN IS REALLY THE HOLY  GRAIL."THE WORK CAN BE DONE THROUGH SMALLER INCISIONS WITH A FASTER  RECOVERY. CARTILAGE DAMAGE IS A COMMON KNEE PROBLEM THAT OCCURS IN PATIENTS OF  ALL AGES.  "YOUNG ACTIVE PATIENTS, ATHLETES OR FORMER ATHLETES OR WORKING CLASS PEOPLE WHO  WANT GOOD QUALITY OF LIFE WANT TO HAVE GOOD RECREATIONAL ATHLETICS AND CANNOT BECAUSE OF  THEIR KNEE LIGAMENT AND CARTILAGE INJURY, THESE ARE THE TYPES OF PATIENTS THAT WE ARE LOOKING  FOR."THESE TYPE OF CARTILAGE INJURIES CAN HAPPEN AS A RESULT OF A BLOW TO  THE KNEE, OR DUE TO WEAR AND TEAR OVER TIME.  IN EITHER CASE, IT TYPICALLY CAUSES KNEE SWELLING, STIFFNESS AND PAIN. 

CLOSE
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.  FOR BETSY JIBBEN, MIKE HOFFMAN, AND ALL OF US AT AGDAY I'M CLINTON  GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY. AGDAY IS POWERED BY RAM TRUCKS - AMERICA'S LONGEST LASTING PICKUPS.
