HEADLINES
FROM FIRES TO DROUGHTS TO FLOODS, WEATHER KEEPS A GRIP ON 2017.F PLUS, COULD A LA NINA WINTER BE IN STORE?  IN FLORIDA'S ORANGE GROVES... "WE'VE LOST A MAJORITY OF THIS YEARS CROP..." ...BUT THE DAMAGE GOES BEYOND THIS ONE STORM. IN AGRIBUSINESS... COMPETITIONS BETWEEN PROTEINS HEATS UP. "THE BOTTOM LINE IS THE WORLD WANTS PORK AND THE WORLD WANTS POULTRY AND UNFORTUNATELY BEEF  GETS THE SHORT END OF THAT STICK." AND TEENS WITH CONCUSSIONS MAY F IND NEW HELP ON THEIR SMART PHONE. AGDAY - PRESENTED BY CHEVY SILVERADO. HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL FOR HIGH-STRENGTH DEPENDABILITY.

WEATHER AND DROUGHT MONITOR
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS.  WEATHER CONTINUES TO TAKE CENTER STAGE IN 2017.  TODAY, POSSIBLE RELIEF FROM WILDFIRES IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST...THE  LIKELIHOOD OF LA NINA RETURNING THIS FALL AND JUST HOW COOL WAS THE  MONTH OF AUGUST? FIRST WE BEGIN IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WHICH HAS BEEN ABLAZE IN  RECENT WEEKS.  THE NATIONAL INTERAGENCY FIRE CENTER SAYS THERE ARE MORE THAN 60  ACTIVE WILDFIRES IN NINE WESTERN STATES. 20 OF THOSE CURRENT FIRES ARE IN MONTANA ALONE.  THE STATE HAS LOST MORE THAN A MILLION AND HALF ACRES TO WILDFIRES - BOTH PRIVATE AND PUBLIC LANDS. FIREFIGHTERS HOWEVER, MAY SEE A BREAK SOON. "AND WE'RE ACTUALLY EXPECTED TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF MOISTURE THIS WEEK  IN FORM OF RAIN OUT HERE ON THE PLAINS AND EVEN SOME SNOW IN THE  MOUTAINS WHICH WILL DEFINETLY KIND OF HELP OUT WITH THE FIREFIGHTING  EFFORTS YOU KNOW AS SUMMER COMES TO AN END AND WE LOOK FALL RIGHT  IN THE FACE."THE SUMMER-LONG DROUGHT CREATED THE PERFECT TINDERBOX FOR  WILDFIRES.  MONTANA CONTINUES TO BE THE PRIMARY TARGET FOR THE DROUGHT MONITOR.  HALF OF THE STATE IS IN THE COMBINED CATEGORIES OF D-3 AND D-4 DROUGHT- THE MOST DIRE CONDITIONS. THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR ALSO SHOWING DRYNESS INCREASING IN THE  CORN BELT. IN THE MIDWEST FROM OHIO TO MISSOURI NORTH TO MINNESOTA, DROUGHT OR  DRYNESS NOW COVERS NEARLY 40 PERCENT OF THE REGION -- NEARLY A 20  POINT JUMP IN JUST THE LAST WEEK.  ALMOST ALL OF ILLINOIS AND 70 PERCENT OF IOWA FACING SOME FORM OF  DROUGHT OR DRYNESS. WHILE WE'RE SEEING DRYNESS INTENSIFY IN THE MIDWEST, IT WAS A RATHER  COOL MONTH OF AUGUST.

COOL AUGUST, LA NINA
THE NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION SAYS AUGUST WAS THE NINTH COOLEST IN THE MIDWEST IN 123 YEARS. ON THIS MAP, THE DARKER GRAY COLOR SHOWS THE WESTERN CORNBELT AND  CENTRAL PLAINS WHICH HAD THE LARGEST DIFFERENCE  BETWEEN NORMAL  AUGUST TEMPS. THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 70-POINT-THREE DEGREES, NEARLY THREE  DEGREES BELOW THE 20TH CENTURY BASELINE. MEANWHILE LIVESTOCK FOLKS FROM THE NORTHWEST TO THE MIDWEST  SHOULD BRACE FOR THE POTENTIAL OF A COLD WINTER. THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER JUST RELEASED ITS "ENSO" OUTLOOK WHICH  SHOWS AN INCREASING CHANCE OF LA NINA DURING THE FALL AND WINTER  MONTHS HERE IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE. THEY PUT THE ODDS AT 55-TO-60 PERCENT CHANCE. USDA METEOROLOGIST BRAD RIPPEY SAYS IN ADDITION TO THE POTENTIAL FOR A  COLD WINTER ACROSS THE PLAINS AND CORN BELT, WE COULD ALSO SEE  STORMY, SOMETIMES SNOWY, WEATHER. IN THE SOUTHERN TIER STATES, A WARM, DRY WINTER COULD SHOW-UP. THOSE  AREAS - LIKE COASTAL TEXAS AND FLORIDA - HAVE OF COURSE HAD AN  ABUNDANCE OF MOISTURE.

FLORIDA CITRUS AFTER IRMA
HURRICANE IRMA DEALT FLORIDA'S ICONIC CROP A DEVASTATING BLOW,  DESTROYING NEARLY ALL THE CITRUS IN SOME SOUTHERN GROVES AND  SERIOUSLY DAMAGING OTHERS IN THE CENTRAL PART OF THE STATE.  OF COURSE THIS IS A CROP THAT'S ALREADY BEEN SEVERELY CURTAILED BY  CITRUS GREENING. U-S SENATORS BILL NELSON AND MARCO RUBIO VISITED GROVES AROUND LAKE  WALES, FLORIDA.  THEY HEARD FROM GROWERS WHO ARE SEEKING FEDERAL  DISASTER ASSISTANCE. ENTIRE ORCHARDS HAVE BEEN BLOWN OVER. AND FOR GROWERS WITH  STANDING TREES, MUCH OF THE FRUIT WAS BLOWN OFF. BUT NONE OF IT COMPARES TO MORE THAN A DECADE OF FIGHTING H-L-B...OR  CITRUS GREENING. "DEVASTATING HURRICANE AND WE LOST THE MAJORITY OF THIS YEAR'S CROP BUT COMPARED TO 10  YEARS OF HLB (CITRUS DISEASE) THAT REALLY HAS TAKEN YOUR PRODUCTION, YOUR CROPS..." "WE'VE  BEEN CUT IN HALF ON A PRODUCTION LEVEL BECAUSE OF DISEASE; THIS CUTS THAT HALF IN HALF."PROJECTIONS FOR THE 2016-2017 GROWING SEASON HAD CALLED FOR 68  MILLION BOXES OF ORANGES. DURING THE 1997-98 CROP YEAR FLORIDA ORANGE GROWERS PRODUCED 244 MILLION BOXES.  THAT'S A 70-PERCENT DECLINE IN  TWO DECADES, MUCH OF THAT LOSS DUE TO DISEASE. WITH THE SIZE AND SCOPE OF IRMA'S DAMAGE, THE FEARS ARE THAT FARMERS  WILL BE FORGOTTEN. "AND THEN THERE'S ALWAYS THE DANGER THAT IN THE MIX OF ALL THE DISASTER AND CATASTROPHIC LOSS  THAT WE'RE SEEING IN THE KEYS, WHICH WE REALLY NEED TO FOCUS ON AND ALL THE OTHER PARTS OF THE  STATE; AGRICULTURE GETS LOST IN THE MIX."SENATOR NELSON SAYS THE BEST CHANCE AT THIS POINT TO HELP FLORIDA'S  ORANGE GROWERS WILL COME IN DECEMBER WITH SOME MASSIVE OMNIBUS  SPENDING BILL. FLORIDA'S ORANGE HARVEST USUALLY BEGINS AROUND THANKSGIVING, AND  PEAKS IN FEBRUARY.

LOUISIANA SUGAR CANE
MANY LOUISIANA SUGARCANE FARMERS WERE WONDERING IF THEY EVER WERE  GOING TO GET THEIR CROP PLANTED, ESPECIALLY AFTER TROPICAL STORM  HARVEY. BUT SUNSHINE RETURNED, AND FARMERS HAVE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF  THE GOOD WEATHER. LSU AGCENTER CORRESPONDENT CRAIG GAUTREAUX HAS  THIS REPORT. THE SUN IS SHINING, AND FIELDS HAVE FINALLY DRIED OUT ENOUGH FOR SUGARCANE FARMERS TO GET  BACK TO PLANTING THEIR CROP. AN ESPECIALLY WET SUMMER AND TROPICAL STORM HARVEY WERE  THREATENING TO EXTEND THE PLANTING SEASON INTO THE HARVEST. BUT GOOD WEATHER SINCE HARVEY'S  DEPARTURE HAS ALLOWED FARMERS TO GET BACK ON TRACK. STUART GAUTHIER: MOST OF OUR FARMERS  ARE OVER 50 PERCENT COMPLETE, WHICH IS JUST AMAZING CONSIDERING JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO  WE WERE REALLY IN A BIND BECAUSE OF THE WET WEATHER, THEN HURRICANE HARVEY. IT IS IMPORTANT  FOR GROWERS TO FINISH THEIR PLANTING BECAUSE SOME OF THE MILLS ARE OPENING SOON. THIS EARLIER  OPENING IS BEING DRIVEN BY AN INCREASE IN ACREAGE, AND THE CROP APPEARS TO BE A BIG ONE IN  TERMS OF CANE TONNAGE. MILLS ARE GOING TO START A LITTLE EARLY. THEY'RE GOING TO BE STARTING  AROUND SEPTEMBER 20 IN THIS PARISH, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IF WE CAN HAVE ANOTHER GOOD WEEK OF  WEATHER, MOST OF OUR FARMERS ARE GOING TO BE FINISHED PLANTING. DANE BERARD IS ONE OF THE  FEW CANE FARMERS WHO PLANTS BILLETS INSTEAD OF WHOLE STALKS. HE WAS FORCED INTO PLANTING  BILLETS ONE YEAR BECAUSE A HURRICANE HAD KNOCKED DOWN HIS PLANT CANE, AND TIME WAS  RUNNING OUT. HE SAYS THERE IS A LEARNING CURVE WITH BILLET PLANTING.  DANE BERARD:  WE'VE LEARNED A LOT. IT'S 2017 RIGHT NOW, SO FROM 2002, YOU'RE LOOKING AT 15  YEARS, YOU KNOW, AND WE LEARNED FROM A LOT OF MISTAKES. ONE THING BERARD HAS LEARNED IS  THAT BILLET PLANTING NEEDS A MORE MATURE CANE STALK, WHICH REQUIRES HIM TO WAIT A MONTH  LONGER BEFORE BEGINNING HIS PLANTING. WE HAVE PERFECTED THAT, BUT BECAUSE OF A 24-INCH  BILLET, YOU ALMOST HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE LATTER PART OF AUGUST AND MONTH OF SEPTEMBER TO GET  YOUR EYE MATURE.  BERARD SAYS A BIG ADVANTAGE OF BILLET PLANTING IS HE CAN PLANT UP TO 50  ACRES IN A DAY WITH A CREW CONSISTING OF ONLY SIX PEOPLE. WITH THE LSU AGCENTER, THIS IS  CRAIG GAUTREAUX REPORTING.

USDA EXTENSION
AGRICULTURE SECRETARY SONNY PERDUE ANNOUNCED SPECIAL PROCEDURES  TO ASSIST PRODUCERS WHO LOST CROPS OR LIVESTOCK OR HAD OTHER  DAMAGE TO THEIR FARMS OR RANCHES AS A RESULT OF HURRICANES HARVEY  AND IRMA.  ALSO, BECAUSE OF THE SEVERE AND WIDESPREAD DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE  HURRICANES, USDA WILL PROVIDE ADDITIONAL FLEXIBILITY TO ASSIST FARM  LOAN BORROWERS. SPECIFIC INFO IS AVAILABLE AT USDA-DOT-GOV OR YOUR FSA OFFICE.

CROP COMMENTS
METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN--TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK'S  DROUGHT MONITOR AND SOME OF THE IMPACTS IN THE FIELD. GOOD MORNING MIKE. HELLO CLINTON. IOWA CROPS ARE FEELING THAT DRYNESS ACCORDING TO JOANNE ALUMBAUGH. SHE SNAPPED THIS PICTURE NEAR REDFIELD, IN CENTRAL IOWA, ABOUT 25 MILES  WEST OF DES MOINES  SHE SAYS WHILE THE PICTURE IS NICE, CROPS ARE SPOTTY AND STILL VERY DRY. THE CORN CROP IS STILL GREEN AND NOT CLOSE TO BEING READY FOR  HARVEST HOWEVER, FARMERS ARE STARTING TO COMBINE BEANS AND SOME FARMERS  ARE ALREADY DOING FALL TILLAGE. AND NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS WITH MARKET PRICES CONSTANTLY CHANGING, IT'S IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHERE CURRENT PRICES STAND. GET MARKET PRICES DELIVERED RIGHT TO YOUR MOBILE PHONE, JUST TEXT MARKETS TO 31313 TO GET  STARTED

TEASE

AND LATER, KEN FERRIE DISCUSSES THE IMPORTANCE OF REPLANT DECISIONS  AND THE IMPACT IT CAN HAVE AT HARVEST. AND LATER TELL YOUR TEENS TO GRAB THEIR SMART PHONE...IF... THEY'RE  DEALING WITH A CONCUSSION. WE'LL EXPLAINS COMING UP IN AG FOR YOUR HEALTH. THIS IS MACHINERY PETE - INVITING YOU TO CHECK OUT MY NEW WEBSITE - MACHINERYPETE.COM - OFFERING FARMERS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF USED EQUIPMENT LISTINGS TO SEARCH.  LET MACHINERY  PETE HELP YOU FIND AND VALUE YOUR NEXT PIECE OF USED EQUIPMENT.

FLOOR OF THE CME
IN AGRIBUSINESS LIVESTOCK SEEING A BIT OF RED WHILE GRAINS TURN GREEN  IN THURSDAY'S TRADE.  DETAILS FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME IN CHICAGO. SOYBEAN MARKET WAS SHARPLY HIGHER HERE ON THURSDAY AND HAS REALLY PERFORMED PRETTY WELL  AS OF LATE. IT'S GOT TO START OUT WITH THE USDA REPORT WHICH WAS RELEASED THIS PAST TUESDAY.  THE USDA TOLD US THAT THE NATIONAL SOYBEAN MEAL WAS GOING TO BE BIGGER THAN IT WAS IN  AUGUST AND THE PROJECTION WAS IN AUGUST AND QUITE A BIT LARGER THAN MOST TRADERS HAD EXPECTED. THE KNEE JERK REACTION TO THAT REPORT WAS TO SELL OFF AND THAT'S WHAT WE DID ON  TUESDAY EARLY IN THE DAY. BUT WE HAVE REBOUNDED AND RECOVERED ALL OF THOSE LOSSES HERE ON  THURSDAY. THE MARKET'S BEEN ACTING VERY VERY WELL CONSIDERING. WHEN YOU TAKE INTO ACCOUNT  A PRETTY BEARISH REPORT FROM USDA PART OF THE REASON THE MARKET HAS ACTED WELL IS BECAUSE  THE DEMAND OUR EXPORT DEMAND OUT OF THE U.S. FOR BEANS HAS BEEN VERY VERY STRONG DESPITE  BIG CROPS IN SOUTH AMERICA. PART OF THIS HAS TO DO WITH WEAKNESS IN THE U.S. DOLLAR THE DOLLAR  IS HOVERING AROUND SOME MULTI-YEAR LOWS. SO THE DEMAND HAS BEEN VERY VERY STRONG.LIVE  CATTLE MARKET TRADED BOTH SIDES OF UNCHANGED HERE ON THURSDAY. WE'VE REBOUNDED A LITTLE BIT  HERE THIS WEEK. BUT OVERALL THE MARKET'S BEEN UNDER QUITE A BIT OF PRESSURE. OUR NEARBY  AUGUST FUTURES ARE I'M SORRY OCTOBER FUTURES HAVE LOST I THINK A GOOD $10 A 100 WEIGHT SINCE  MID-JULY. SO WE'VE BEEN IN A PRETTY SOLID DOWNTREND HERE AGAIN JOE VACLAVIK. FROM THE CME  GROUP IN CHICAGO 

AGRIBUSINESS
LEAN HOG FUTURES MAKING FRESH LOWS THIS WEEK. IN TODAY'S ANALYSIS TYNE MORGAN ASKS WHETHER DEMAND CAN KEEP PACE  WITH RISING SUPPLIES. HERE NOW WITH ARLAN SUDERMAN WELL ARLAND THE WEEK OF LABOR DAY WE SAW TWO NEW PLANTS  COME ON LINE. YOU KNOW REALLY WHEN WE LOOK AT THE SUPPLY SITUATION IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S ONLY  GOING TO GROW HERE THE REMAINDER OF 2017. THAT REALLY DOES IT'S GOOD THING WE HAVE THOSE  PLANTS WILL TAKE A LITTLE WHILE FOR THEM TO GET FULLY OPERATIONAL. BUT WE SAW A JUMP IN THE  MARKET AS A RESULT. NOW THAT CAME AT A TIME WHEN THE FUNDS ARE MORE FAVORABLE TOWARD THE  COMMODITIES INCLUDING THE MEAT COMPLEX. BUT WE HAVE THE DEMAND THERE. AND SO AS LONG AS  WE CAN THE CONSUMER DEMAND IS THERE THE EXPORT DEMAND IS THERE. WE JUST NEED TO PROCESS  THOSE HOGS SO WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE THE NEW PLANTS IN PLACE YET DOMESTICALLY LOOKING AT  DEMAND. DO YOU SEE DEMAND INCREASING HERE AT HOME. WELL WE DO AND WE SEE IT GLOBALLY AS  WELL. AND AS WE'VE LOOKED AROUND THE WORLD WE SEE THAT AS INCOME RISES DEMAND FOR PORK  AND POULTRY INCREASES AND WE SEE THAT'S CERTAINLY TRUE HERE AT HOME AS WELL. AND I THINK  PARTICULARLY THE BACON CRAZE HAS BEEN THE BIG DRIVER AND THAT'S WHY WE SAW THE BIG CRASH.  LATE SUMMER IS WE FINALLY SAW THAT BACON PRICE OF BELLEY PRICE DROP AND COLLAPSE AND NOW I  THINK WE NEED TO STABILIZE AND TRY TO FIND WHERE'S THE BOTTOM. AND I THINK WE'RE APPROACHING  THE PLACE WHERE WE'LL START TO SEE THAT DEMAND START TO OPEN UP AGAIN AND PROVIDE SOME  UNDERPINNING. EXPORTS HAVE BEEN STRONG BUT WE CONTINUE TO HEAR THIS TRADE PACK RHETORIC  WHETHER IT BE WITH SOUTH KOREA OR WITHIN NAFTA. DOES THAT WORRY YOU AT ALL WITH THE EXPORT  PICTURE. DO YOU THINK EXPORTS CAN CONTINUE ON THIS PACE. WELL THERE MAY BE SOME DISRUPTIONS  AND THAT'S THE CONCERN. NEGOTIATIONS RUN THAT WAY PARTICULARLY WHEN YOU HAVE A STRONG  NEGOTIATOR IS GOING TO MAKE A STRONG CASE AND MAKE THREATS IN ORDER TO GET THE OTHER SIDE TO  THE TABLE. BUT IN THE END I THINK THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN ASSIGNED TO THE TASK ARE BELIEVERS  IN TRADE ARE GOING TO DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN PROMOTE THE TRADE AND THAT'S WHAT I'M EXPECTING  TO HAPPEN. SO OVERALL LOOKING AT PRICES MOVING FOR THE REST OF 2017 HEADING INTO THE FIRST  QUARTER OF 2018 KIND OF WHAT'S YOUR OUTLOOK. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THE WORLD WANTS PORK AND THE  WORLD WANTS POULTRY AND UNFORTUNATELY BEEF GETS THE SHORT END OF THAT STICK. BUT RIGHT NOW I'M  LOOKING FOR THINGS TO STABILIZE ARE STARTING TO SEE SOME PREMIUM IN SOME OF THE DEFERRED  CONTRACTS AND I THINK THAT'S WELL PRICED IN THERE. ALL RIGHT WELL WE NEED TO TAKE A SHORT BREAK  BUT WHEN WE COME BACK WE'LL HAVE MORE AGDAY.

WEATHER
AGDAY WEATHER - BROUGHT TO YOU BY ILEVO SEED TREATMENT FROM BAYER. WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY HERE WITH METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN MIKE AS  WE LOOK AT THIS DROUGHT MONITOR OBVIOUSLY THE NORTHERN PLAINS STILL  THE CONCERN BUT SOME RAINS COMING IN YES THERE IS AND THAT MAY VERY  WELL HELP IT'S ALREADY HELPED A LITTLE BIT OVER THE PAST FOUR WEEKS IN  FACT IF WE GO BACK FOUR WEEKS YOU CAN SEE A LOT LESS DROUGHT IN THE  CENTRAL PLAINS BUT A LITTLE BIT MORE IN NORTH DAKOTA SO YOU CAN WATCH  THINGS IMPROVE IN THE FAR NORTHERN PLAINS AND GET SLOWLY WORSE AS WE  LOOK AT THE CENTRAL PLAINS AS WE'VE GONE THROUGH THE PAST FOUR WEEKS  AND YOU CAN SEE THE EXPANDING AREA OF DRYNESS JUST IN THE LAST WEEK  ACROSS MUCH OF THE CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI VALLEY RIGHT THERE ALRIGHT  LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEATHER MAP TODAY STILL DRY IN THOSE AREAS  HERE'S WHAT CLINTON WAS TALKING ABOUT A BIG WET WEATHER MAKER COMING  OUT OF THE NORTHERN ROCKIES INTO THE NORTHERN PLAINS WE SHOWED YOU  THAT YESTERDAY THERE'S THE REMNANTS OF IRMA STILL CAUSING A FEW LIGHT  SHOWERS IN THE NORTH EAST BUT THAT'S PRETTY MUCH KAPUT IT'S HEADING  OUT TO SEA AND YOU CAN SEE THE STATIONARY FRONT WILL THE FOCUS  ESPECIALLY NORTH OF THERE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS AS WE  HEAD THROUGH THE NEXT 48 HOURS OR SO THERE'S LATE IN THE DAY TODAY  WIDESPREAD RAINS IN THOSE DROUGHT AREAS EASTERN MONTANA MUCH OF  NORTH DAKOTA PARTS OF SOUTH DAKOTA WE HEAD ON THROUGH TONIGHT AND  YOU CAN SEE MORE OF THAT DEVELOPING LITTLE FARTHER EAST AND THERE'S  STILL SOME SHOWER EVEN SNOW SHOWERS IN THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE  NORTHERN ROCKIES COLD FRONT DOWN TO THE SOUTH STILL KIND OF CAUSING  A FEW SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY IN THE AFTERNOON  FOR PARTS OF THE SOUTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY AND JOSE WE  STILL HAVE TO WATCH IT BUT WERE KIND OF THINKING AND HOPING THAT THIS  FRONT TO THE NORTH OF IT STEER OUT TO SEA AND KEEP IT AWAY FROM THE  EAST COAST AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT WEEK PRECIPITATION ESTIMATE PAST 24  HOURS WE SEEN SOME FROM THE REMNANTS OF IRMA BUT MOST OF IT REALLY  BEEN THAN NEW SYSTEM COMING ACROSS THE NORTHERN ROCKIES ADDING IN  THE NEXT 36 HOURS YOU CAN SEE ONE TO TWO MAYBE THREE INCHES OF RAIN  FOR EASTERN MONTANA WESTERN NORTH DAKOTA PARTS OF SOUTH DAKOTA  AND INTO MINNESOTA PRETTY HEAVY RAINS UP THERE FOR A CHANGE HIGH  TEMPERATURES THE HEAT IS ON FROM OMAHA SOUTHWARD BUT LOOK HOW  CHILLY IT IS HIGHS ONLY IN THE LOW 40S IN CENTRAL MONTANA LOW 90S BY THE  TIME YOU GET TO EASTERN NEBRASKA A LOT MORE COMFORTABLE IN THE OHIO  VALLEY AND INTO THE NORTHEAST LOWS TONIGHT SAME IDEA KIND OF COOL IN  THE OHIO VALLEY WARM IN THE PLAINS EXCEPT FOR THE FAR NORTHERN PLAINS  AND WE CONTINUE TO SEE THAT FRONT COME A LITTLE BIT FARTHER EAST  DURING THE DAY TOMORROW HERE'S THE JET STREAM YOU CAN SEE WHAT  WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT AS WE GO A RIDGE IN THE EAST IT GETS CUT DOWN  FROM TIME TO TIME BUT IT'S BASICALLY A FLIP FLOP OF WHAT WE'VE BEEN  SEEING WITH A BIG TROUGH OUT WEST THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY  NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS WE'LL HEAD TO  ALAMOGORDO NEMEXICO FIRST OF ALL GOOD DEAL OF SUNSHINE AND WARM  HIGH OF 90 MITCHEL SOUTH DAKOTA BREEZY AND AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM  COULD BE HEAVY HIGH OF 83 AND ERIE PENNSYLVANIA MIXTURE OF CLOUDS AND  SUNSHINE AND PRETTY COMFORTABLE HIGH OF 75

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'LL TALK REPLANT DECISIONS AND WHEN IT MAKES  SENSE FOR THE BOTTOM LINE. AND PLENTY OF COUNTRY KIDS ARE PLAYING SPORTS THIS SEASON. WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT A HANDY NEW WAY TO HELP TEENS HEAL FROM  CONCUSSIONS.

FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV
THE CHALLENGES OF SPRING PLANTING USUALLY CARRY THROUGH TO HARVEST. IN TODAY'S FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV, KEN FERRY TALKS ABOUT REPLANT  DECISIONS AND HOW THE ISSUES WE SAW WITH EMERGENCE ARE IMPACTING  YIELD EXPECTATIONS. AND THERE IS A LOT OF GOOD DECISIONS MADE THIS SPRING I THINK BASED ON WHAT I'VE SEEN AND  THERE IS A NUMBER OF THAT WEREN'T SO GOOD. WE MAKE A DECISION ON WHETHER WE'RE GOING TO  REPLANT OR NOT. BY EAR COUNT NOT BY POPULATION. OK. SO IN SOME CASES IT TOOK 20 25 DAYS TO  GET ALL THE CORN UP. UNFORTUNATELY THE LAST SIX OR SEVEN THAT CAME UP WERE SO FAR BEHIND THE  REST THEY'RE NOT GOING TO PUT AN EAR ON AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IN THE ROW. SO IF I HAVE LOW  GROUND THAT CAME UP LATE HIGH GROUND THAT CAME UP EARLY THAT'S OK BUT INDIVIDUAL PLANTS AND  AS WE STRETCH THAT TAPE THIS SPRING WE'D COUNT THE POPULATION AND WE COME UP WITH 32000  LET'S SAY OUT OF 38 BUT SIX THOUSAND OF THEM COME UP SO LATE THAT THE ODDS OF HIM PUTTING ON  ANY EARS OR SO WHEN THAT CORN PLANTS REAL SMALL. IF IT GETS MORE THAN ONE LEAF COLLAR BEHIND ITS  NEIGHBOR IT'S AT A HIGHER RISK I'M NOT PUTTING ON AN EAR OR TWO BEHIND IT IS IT GOING TO PUT ON AN  EAR AND NOT THAT 27000 PLANTS CAN'T PRODUCE A LOT OF GREEN SURE IN OUR HAND HARVESTED WORK  THAT WE DO WE RECOGNIZE SOME VARIETIES CAN PRODUCE AS MUCH AS 10 BUSHEL PER THOUSAND.  SO THERE'S A LOT OF PUNCH BUT YOU CAN'T HAVE 25 26 27 THOUSAND EARS MIXED IN WITH 36000  PLANTS BECAUSE IN ORDER TO GET THE BIG BUSHELS OUT OF A LOW POPULATION YOU'VE GOT TO GET THE  SUNLIGHT. YOU GOT TO GET THE WATER GOING TO GET THE NUTRIENT SO THERE'S SIX OR SEVEN THOUSAND  WEEDS OUT THERE THAT ARE CATCHING THE SUNLIGHT CATCHING THE WATER AND NOT LETTING THE PLANT  EXPAND YOU CAN'T GET TO.

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK WILL SHOW YOU A PHONE APP DESIGNED TO HELP TEENS  OVERCOME CONCUSSIONS.

IN THE COUNTRY
IN THE COUNTRY - SPONSORED BY KUBOTA.  TRACTORS, HAY TOOLS, UTILILTY VEHICLES, MOWERS AND  MORE.  VISIT KUBOTA.COM TODAY. FROM ALL OF THE NEW STUDIES, CONCUSSIONS ARE MORE OF A CONCERN FOR  PARENTS THAN EVER. IF YOUR KIDS HAVE EVER HAD A CONCUSSION, YOU KNOW DOCTORS TYPICALLY  RECOMMEND KEEPING SCREEN TIME TO A MINIMUM IN ORDER TO LET BRAINS  REST AND HEAL. BUT NEW RESEARCH OUT OF THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY WEXNER MEDICAL  CENTER MAY CHANGE THAT. DOCTORS WANTED TO KNOW IF IT WAS POSSIBLE FOR TEENS TO USE PHONES  COMPUTERS OR TV'S DURING RECOVERY. BUT IT NEEDED TO BE THE RIGHT KIND OF USAGE--AND SO THEY DEVELOPED A  GAME AND SOCIAL  APP FOR THEIR PHONE. IN TEENS TREATED FOR CONCUSSIONS WHO DIDN'T USE THE APP--- ONLY HALF  REPORTED IMPROVED SYMPTOMS.  THE OTHER HALF SAY THEY GOT WORSE. TEENS THAT DID USE THE APP--ALL OF THEM REPORTED IMPROVEMENTS IN BOTH  SYMPTOMS AND OPTIMISM. "IT CONNECTD PEOPLE TO SMALL NUMBER OF CLOSE, SOCIAL CONNECTION AND  LET THOSE CLOSE SOCIAL CONNECTIONS GO THROUGH THAT RECOVERY  JOURNEY WITH THEM." "IT'S EASY TO FEEL HELPLESS AND IT'S NICE TO HAVE ACTIONS OR ACTIONABLE  ITEMS THAT YOU CAN WORK WITH THAT THE DOCTOR CAN RECOMMEND." "I'D WAKE UP THE NEXT MORNING AND I'D BE LIKE 'WELL I FEEL BETTER. MAYBE  THIS STUFF ACTUALLY WORKS. MAYBE I SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING WHAT THE  DOCTOR SAID ALL ALONG." THIS STUDY FOCUSED ON TEENS WHOSE SYMPTOMS HADN'T IMPROVED ON  THEIR OWN AT LEAST 3 WEEKS AFTER THE INJURY.

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