HEADLINES
TODAY ON AGDAY - THE SOUTHEAST STRUGGLES UNDER DROUGHT POURING  RAINS AND WILDFIRES. PLUS, IN THE PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING, "AT THIS  TIME OF THE YEAR, IT'S EASY TO KINDA LOSE TRACK OF THE MARKETS." FARM  JOURNAL COLLEGE TV SHARES TIPS FOR SEEDING WINTER WHEAT. AND A GREAT  AMERICAN BARN WITH PRESIDENTIAL TIES. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE  DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO.

SOUTHEAST RELIEF
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. AFTER MONTHS OF DRY WEATHER AND SUMMER HEAT, THE SOUTHEAST GETS  RELIEF. BUT THE RAINS COME WITH A COST. THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE IN NORTHERN ALABAMA AFTER STORMS DUMPED  BETWEEN 2 AND FOUR INCHES OF RAIN. THE DELUGE LEADING TO FLOODING AND FORCING SAFETY OFFICIALS TO CLOSE  ROADS. THOSE SAME STORMS SPAWNED TORNADOS AND SEVERE WEATHER. FIVE PEOPLE WHERE KILLED IN ALABAMA AND TENNESSEE AS THE LINE MOVED  ACROSS THE SOUTH. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAYS STREAMS ARE STARTING CREST...AND  WHILE THE RAIN HELPED DOWSE WILDFIRES, NOW THERE'S CONCERNS TOO  MUCH WATER COULD BRING OTHER DANGERS. A NEW CHALLENGE THAT THE WEATHER IS CREATING FOR US AFTER THE FIRE IS WE ARE EXPERIENCING  SOME SMALL MUDSLIDES AND ROCK SLIDES BECAUSE THERE'S NO LONGER THAT FOLIAGE THAT'S HOLDING  EVERYTHING TOGETHER. SO WE'RE HAVING TO GO BACK INTO AREAS THAT WE THOUGHT WERE PREVIOUSLY  CLEARED AND ACCESSIBLE AND GO THROUGH SOME OF OUR SAME PROCESSES OVER AGAIN. THE RAIN IS  GOING TO HELP WITH THE SUPPRESSION OF SOME OF THE ACTIVE FIRES."FOLKS IN TENNESSEE ARE STILL TRYING TO COME TO GRIPS WITH THE MASSIVE  FIRES THAT SWEPT THROUGH THE GREAT SMOKEY MOUNTAINS THIS WEEK. THE WILDFIRES DESTROYED MORE THAN 150 BUILDINGS AND NEARLY FOUR  DOZEN PEOPLE HAD BEEN INJURED. THOSE FIRE THE RESULTS OF A WORSENING DROUGHT PICTURE IN THE  SOUTHEAST. HERE'S THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR. NEARLY 55 PERCENT OF THE SOUTHEAST IS NOW IN SOME LEVEL OF DROUGHT. WITH THE WORST POCKETS IN ALABAMA AN GEORGIA. NEARLY TWO THIRDS OF GEORGIA IS IN EXTREME OR EXCEPTIONAL DROUGHT. AND SOUTH CAROLINA WHICH SAW FLOODING JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO IS NOW  FACING DRYNESS OF ITS OWN. NEARLY 75 PERCENT OF SOUTH CAROLINA IS ABNORMALLY DRY.  AND 40 PERCENT OF THE STATE IS IN SOME FORM OF DROUGHT.  ALTHOUGH, THOSE IN MARION COUNTY IN NORTHEAST SOUTH CAROLINA ARE  FAIRING BETTER.THEY'RE OUT OF THE DROUGHT AREA FOR NOW. BUT FARMERS SAY THE RAIN SHUT OFF AFTER HURRICANE MATTHEW BLEW  THROUGH.THAT HELPED HARVEST GET COMPLETED IN A TIMELY MANOR, UNLIKE LAST  SEASON. "OUR NEIGHBORS TO THE WEST ARE IN A DROUGHT. THEY'RE STILL IN A DROUGHT. WE HAVE BEEN VERY  BLESSED TO HAVE TIMELY RAINFALL THIS WHOLE YEAR AND AND WHAT HAS REALLY SAVED THIS AREA IS  THAT WE WERE ABLE IN A TIMELY MATTER TO COMPLETE OUR HARVEST VERSUS LAST YEAR."

MONSANTO TO ADDRESS GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
SPEAKING OF WEATHER AND CLIMATE, MONSANTO COMPANY REITERATING IT PLANS TO ADDRESS GREEN HOUSE GAS EMISSIONS AND BECOME CARBON  NEUTRAL AS A COMPANY BY THE YEAR 2021. TO HELP MEET THAT GOAL IT JUST FORMED A GROUP CALLED THE CARBON- NEUTRAL COLLABORATIVE--A COLLECTION OF EXPERTS ON GREENHOUSES  GASES IN AGRICULTURE. THEY'RE ALSO TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MEASURE AND REPORT THE  CARBON REDUCTIONS THAT ARE ALREADY HAPPENING IN AGRICULTURE. SOME OF THOSE CONSERVATION AREAS ARE BEING SUPPORTED THROUGH  USDA.

USDA NEW CONSERVATION ANNOUNCEMENT
TYNE MORGAN IS IN CHICAGO AT THE EXECUTIVE WOMEN IN AGRICULTURE  EVENT AND HAS MORE ON A NEW CONSERVATION ANNOUNCMENT FROM USDA. THANKS, CLINTON. THE EXECUTIVE WOMEN IN AGRICULTURE CONFERENCE  KICKED OFF WITH A DISCUSSION AROUND POLICY. WE'VE BEEN HEARING THE  TREND OF MORE ACRES BEING TRANSITIONED INTO CRP. WELL, THIS WEEK, USDA  ANNOUNCING AN ADDITIONAL 500 THOUSAND ACRES CAN NOW BE ENROLLED IN  GRASSLAND CRP. THE GRASSLANDS WAS GIVEN TO US AS AN AUTHORITY… TAYLOR SAYS THE ADDITIONAL QUALIFYING ACRES ARE AUTHORIZED IN THE  LATEST FARM BILL. THE FARM BILL GAVE US A 200 MILLION SHE SAYS THE GRASSLANDS PORTION OF C-R-P IS DESIGNED TO DIVERSIFY THE  PROGRAM. THERES A LOT OF BENEFITS TO THIS... WITH THEIR COMMUNITIES SHE SAYS USDA IS ANSWERING HTE NEEDS OF PRODUCERS, WITH CRP INTEREST  GAINING STRENGTH DUE TO THE DOWNTURN OF THE AG ECONOMY.  MARGINS ARE TIGHT FOR FARMERS AND RANCHERS AL OVER THE COUNTRY. SIGN UPS ARE HAPPENING NOW, AND YOU CAN DO SO THROUGH YOUR LOCAL F- S-A OFFICE. N ADDITIONAL, TAYLOR TOLD ME USDA'S FOCUS RIGHT NOW IS TO ENSURE A  GEAT TRANSITION TO THE NEW ADMINISTRATION. AND SHE'S BEEN WORKING ON THAT, AS HER FINAL DAY AS DEPUTY UNDER  SECRETARY IS TODAY.REPORTING FROM EWA, I'M TYNE MORGAN FOR AGDAY  THANKS TYNE.

LESSER PRAIRIE CHICKEN ENDANGERED
ALSO ON THE CONSERVATION FRONT IN THE SOUTHERN PLAINS, THE U.S. FISH  AND WILDLIFE SERVICE SAYS IT'S CONSIDERING RE-LISTING THE LESSER PRAIRIE  CHICKEN AS AN ENDANGERED SPECIES.  THE ANNOUNCEMENT COMES DESPITE THE FACT A TEXAS COURT ORDERED THE  AGENCY TO WITHDRAW A PROPOSAL TO LIST THE BIRD AS ENDANGERED LAST  YEAR. THE FISH AND WILDLIFE SERVICE SAYS THE RECONSIDERATION FOLLOWS A NEW  PETITION AND IT WILL ONCE AGAIN CONDUCT A STATUS REVIEW OF THE SPECIES  TO DETERMINE WHAT ACTION TO TAKE. 

CROP COMMENTS
"CROP COMMENTS IS POWERED BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN, FROM  DOW AGROSCIENCES."  MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US NOW WITH SOME CROP COMMENTS. MIKE.  LET'S START OFF IN MULLINS, SOUTH CAROLINA. THIS PICTURE IS FROM PEE DEE  PEANUT, A PEANUT BUYING STATION IN THE AREA. THESE ARE RUNNER PEANUTS,  WHICH ARE KNOWN TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER! ONE OF THE OWNERS SAID  HURRICANE MATTHEW LEFT A MARK.PEANUT YIELDS WERE SIGNIFICANTLY  REDUCED IN THE AREA. AND HERE'S A PICTURESQUE PHOTO FROM IRELAND, INDIANA. SAMUEL EBENKAMP SAYS A VIEW LIKE THIS REMINDS HIM WHY HE FARMS DAY  AFTER DAY. FARMERS LIKE EBENKAMP HAVE WRAPPED UP ROW CROP HARVEST  IN THE STATE. AND TAKING A LOOK AT THE DROUGHT MONITOR YOU CAN SEE THE  DROUGHT CONTINUES TO BE SEVERE IN THE SOUTH EAST THIS DOES NTO TAKE  INTO ACCOUNT THE RECENT RAINS THOUGH SO WE'LL HAVE TO SEE HOW THAT  ENDS UP NEXT WEEK AT THIS SAME TIME WE'LL TALK MORE ABOUT THAT AND  HAVE YOUR FORECAST BUT NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS

FLOOR OF THE CME
AGRIBUSINESS TODAY, BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA - MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE- BY-SIDES.  YAMAHA - REAL WORLD TOUGH.IN AGRIBUSINESS IT WAS TOUGH DAY FOR GRAINS AND LIVESTOCK BUT OIL  TOPPED THE 50 DOLLAR MARK DURING TRADE.  LETS SEE HOW THINGS CLOSED FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME IN CHICAGO. CORN SOYBEANS AND WHEAT ALL FEELING THE PRESSURE AS SOME HEDGERS LOOK TO TAKE SOME PROFITS OFF THE TABLE AND THE STRONG DOLLAR OVER THE PAST COUPLE WEEKS IS ALSO PLAYING INTO SOME OF THE WEAKNESS WE'VE BEEN SEEING IN THE GRAINS. NOW AS FAR AS THE SOYBEANS ARE CONCERNED WE ARE TRADING WELL OFF THE SUNDAY NIGHT HIGHS FORTY CENTS OFF JUST ABOUT TEN TEN AND A HALF IS THE LEVEL WE'RE LOOKING AT A TWENTY DAY MOVING AVERAGE WE FEEL THIS MIGHT PROVIDE A GOOD BUYING OPPORTUNITY IN THE VERY NEAR TERM. ON THE WHEAT MARKET THE CHART IS LOOKING UGLY AS SIN THEY CANNOT CATCH A BREAK AND AGAIN THE U S DOLLAR'S STRENGTHENING IS DEFINITELY PLAYING TO THE WEAKNESS HERE IN THE WEAK MARKET. LASTLY I WANT A TO TOUCH ON THE LEAN HOG MARKET FIFTY SIX FIFTY SEVEN FOR THAT FEBRUARY CONTRACT IS A BRICK WALL OF RESISTANCE I DON'T SUSPECT THE MARKETS GOING TO HAVE ENOUGH MOJO TO GET OUT OF ALL THIS IN THE NEAR FUTURE AND THUS I THINK THE BEARS REMAIN IN CONTROL AND PRESSES BACK TOWARDS THAT FIFTY TWO LEVEL POSSIBLY BELOW AND THE INTERMEDIATE TERM. SO THAT SO WE'RE LOOKING AT THAT'S WHAT YOU SHOULD BE LOOKING AT TOO. I'M OLIVER SLOUP WITH IITRADER FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME

PROFARMER PROFIT BRIEFING
THE YEAR IS WINDING DOWN. HOLIDAYS ABOUND. IT MIGHT BE AN EASY TIME TO  TAKE A BREAK FROM WATCHING GRAIN MARKETS. BUT AS PROFARMER'S CHIP FLORY AND BRIAN GRETE TELL US, THAT'S A BAD  IDEA. BRIAN, WE'RE IN THAT TIME THE YEAR MAN, WE'VE GONE THROUGH  THANKSGIVING. WE HAVE CHRISTMAS COMING UP IN LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY  AND AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, IT CAN BE EASY TO KIND OF LOSE TRACK OF  WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE MARKETS. AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DON'T WANT TO LET HAPPEN AT THIS TIME OF  THE YEAR. YEAH, YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY LIKE IN THE CORN MARKET RIGHT. IT'S  KIND OF GRINDING SIDEWAYS. NOT A LOT HAS HAPPENED. A DAY UP OR TWO,  THEN WE HAVE SOME PRICE PRESSURE.  GOING NOWHERE FAST. AT THE SAME  TIME, YOU STILL HAVE TO STAY ON TOP OF THINGS. DIFFERENT BECAUSE OF THE  TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THAT'S GOING TO BE IN PLAY IN EARLY 2017. THERE'S  GOING TO BE SOME MARKET GYRATIONS IN ANTICIPATION OF THAT HERE  TOWARDS THE END OF THE END OF THE YEAR. YOU KNOW, A LOT OF IT IS  SOMEWHAT UNCERTAIN, SOME OF IT IS THE ANTICIPATION OF WHAT HE WILL DO A  GREAT ECONOMY AND WHAT POLICIES WILL HAVE IMPACTS ON THE ECONOMY. THE DOLLAR OBVIOUSLY HAS STRENGTHENED BECAUSE OF WHAT'S  ANTICIPATED, NOT ONLY HIGHER INTEREST RATES BUT BECAUSE OF ECONOMIC  GROWTH THAT'S ANTICIPATED WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. SO HIGH THAT  COMES INTO PLAY, NOT ONLY SHORT TERM BUT POTENTIALLY LONGER TERM  DOWN THE ROAD. OK, WE'VE GOT THESE EXPECTATIONS FOR BIG CARRY OVERS  FROM CORN, SOYBEANS AND WHEAT AT THE END OF THE 2016, 2017 MARKETING  YEAR. BIG SUPPLIES MEAN YOU NEED TO BE IN A DEFENSIVE MODE WHEN IT  COMES TO RISK MANAGEMENT. WHEN YOU GET ONE OR TWO DAYS UP IN CORN, IT COULD BE A SELLING OPPORTUNITY AND YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT. RIGHT,   YOU WANT TO SEE HIGHER PRICES, EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE HIGHER PRICES.   BUT MAYBE THAT RETURN TO THE FALL HIGHS IS THE BEST OPPORTUNITY YOU'RE  GOING TO HAVE AND I THINK THAT THAT'S THE REALIZATION THAT WE'RE AT IN THE  CORN MARKET. NOW SOYBEANS, THEY'VE SHOWN MORE PRICE STRENGTH. AND  IT'S BEEN WAY MORE EXPLOSIVE TO THE UPSIDE. YOU CAN GIVE THEM THE  MARKET AN OPPORTUNITY TO RUN UP  AND PROVE THAT IT'S NOT GOING UP  BEFORE THE SALES. YES, I THINK A LOT OF THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE  OWNERSHIP, RIGHT? FARMERS HAVE BEEN VERY AGGRESSIVE SELLING  SOYBEANS THROUGH THE 2016 HARVEST, NOT SO AGGRESSIVE ON CORN. CORN  MAKES A BIT OF A MOVE TO THE UPSIDE. THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN, YOU GET  SLAMMED WITH SOME CASH SALES. RIGHT EXACTLY RIGHT I THINK THAT THAT  WHEN YOU HAVE A LOT OF BUSHELS THAT ARE GOING TO COME TO MARKET. YOU  WANT TO BE AT THE FRONT OF THE LINE  NOT AT THE BACK. EXACTLY,  NOW THE  OTHER THING THAT WE'VE GOT TO TALK ABOUT A SOUTH AMERICA BECAUSE  WE'RE GETTING IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT GROWING SEASON. DOWN THERE AND  ANY CHANGE IN WEATHER FORECASTING GIVE US SAID IN AN UNEXPECTED  OPPORTUNITY. YET WE DID HAVE A FEW PROBLEM AREAS AND NOT WIDESPREAD  BUT THAT WAS KIND OF DRY THROUGH CENTRAL ARGENTINA. SOUTHERN BRAZIL,  THEY DID GET SOME RAINS. SO EVERYTHING LOOKS LIKE IT'S PRETTY DECENT  RIGHT NOW BUT THAT CAN CHANGE IN A HURRY TOO. KIND OF MONITOR THAT  SOUTH AMERICA FROM A WEEK TO WEEK BASIS. ALL RIGHT, YOU GOT TO KEEP  LOOKING FOR YOUR OPPORTUNITIES TO MARKET THOSE OLD CROP BUSHELS.  EVEN DURING THE HOLIDAYS FROM BRIAN GRETE AND ALL OF THE EDITORS IN  CEDAR FALLS, IOWA. I'M CHIP FLORY.  ENTER FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN TWO REGISTRATIONS TO THE TOP  PRODUCER SEMINAR - JANUARY 24TH THROUGH THE 27TH IN CHICAGO.   PACKAGE INCLUDES A THREE-NIGHT HOTEL STAY, PLUS A TWO-HUNDRED DOLLAR  VISA GIFT CARD!  GO TO TOPPRODUCERSEMINAR.COM/SWEEPSTAKES.

WEATHER
AGDAY WEATHER - BROUGHT TO YOU BY CORVUS PRE-EMERGENCE CORN HERBICIDE FROM BAYER.  THE  ONLY HERBICIDE TO OFFER THREE LEVELS OF DEFENSE AGAINST WEEDS - BURNDOWN, RESIDUAL AND  REACTIVATION WITH RAIN..WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY WITH MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE, WE STARTED THE SHOW TALKING ABOUT THAT RED AREA THERE IN THE SOUTHEAST. NOW THE RAIN THEY GOT THIS WEEK IS NOT SHOWING UP YET.   IT'S NOT INCLUDED IN THIS DROUGHT MONITOR, YES AND SO WE WILL PROBABLY SEE SOME IMPROVEMENT  NEXT WEEK. ALTHOUGH I DOUBT IT'S A LOT. THE THEY STILL NEED A LOT OF RAIN IN MOST OF THAT AREA. IN  FACT SOME PARTS OF THE SOUTHEAST ACTUALLY  BEFORE THE RAIN, COULD AMUSE TEN TO FIFTEEN INCHES. OF RAIN TO GET OUT OF THE DROUGHT SO IT WILL TAKE A LOT MORE THAN THAT BUT THERE'S MORE COMING.  WE'LL SHOW YOU THE WEATHER MAP COMING UP LET'S GO BACK A MONTH.  HIM SEE HOW WE STARTED OFF. IT WASN'T NEARLY AS BAD IN THE SOUTHEAST. HASN'T CHANGED A WHOLE  LOT THE NORTHEAST OR THE IN THE WEST FOR THAT MATTER, BUT AS WE ADD IN THE NEXT 4 WEEKS, YOU  CAN SEE HOW THE AREA HAS JUST BEEN EXPANDING. NOW I DONT THINK IT WILL EXPAND IN OUR NEWEST  ONE. IT MAY ACTUALLY CONTRACT SLIGHTLY.  I DOUBT IT'S A WHOLE LOT. LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEATHER.  TWO AREAS OF LOW PRESSURE. THAT'S IN NORTHERN MEXICO AND JUST OFFSHORE OF BAJA, MEXICO. BOTH  OF THOSE  COULD EASILY BRING YOU MORE RAIN IN THE SOUTHEAST. BUT RIGHT NOW, YOU'RE UNDER HIGH PRESSURE  WITH DRY WEATHER. A LITTLE BIT OF LINGERING RAIN AND SNOW WITH THOSE TWO SYSTEMS IN THE NORTHEAST AND ANOTHER IN  THE WEST COAST. NOT A LOT GOING ON IN THE 48 BUT YOU CAN SEE LOW PRESSURE  SURROUNDING THE LOWER FORTY EIGHT. GOING THROUGH TONIGHT THEN, YOU CAN SEE AS WE HEAD INTO  TONIGHT I SHOULD SAY, THE RAIN STARTS THE MOVE FARTHER NORTH INTO A TEXAS. STILL SOME LINGERING  SNOW SHOWERS IN THE NORTHEAST RAIN AND MOUNTAIN SNOW COMING IN OUT WEST. NOW WATCH THIS  AREA OF RAIN JUST EXPAND NORTHWARD A LITTLE BIT BUT IT'S MOVING INTO THAT HIGH PRESSURE SYSTEM SO A LOT OF US JUST BE  MOVING EAST IN LOUISIANA, SOUTHERN ARKANSAS BY TOMORROW MORNING AND THEN WE'RE CONTINUE  TO MOVE IT FARTHER TO THE EAST ACROSS ARKANSAS, LOUISIANA AND INTO MISSISSIPPI AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE DAY TOMORROW. THAT STORM SHOULD CONTINUE TO MOVE EASTWARD. IT'LL BE FOLLOWED EARLY NEXT WEEK BY THE NEXT STORM SYSTEM, WHICH IS PROBABLY GOING UP  THROUGH THE OHIO RIVER VALLEY AND THAT WILL BRING MORE RAIN TO THE SOUTHEAST. SO THAT'S SOME  GOOD NEWS THERE. A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW MOVING EASTWARD ACROSS THE DAKOTAS WITH THAT WARM  FRONT AS WE HEAD THROUGH TOMORROW AFTERNOON. THERE'S THE ESTIMATE OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS.  YOU CAN SEE NOT A LOT   ADDED IN THE NEXT THIRTY SIX, MOST OF IT'S GOING TO BE ADDED IN THE SOUTHEAST, MOST OF IT IS  GOING TO BE IN TEXAS AND LOUISIANA. A LITTLE BIT THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. SNOW FALL AMOUNTS ARE  ALREADY ON THE GROUND PRETTY MUCH IN A NORTHEAST, ADDING ON THE NEXT THIRTY SIX HOURS, WE'RE  GOING TO WITH MOST OF IT OVER THE CENTRAL AND NORTHERN ROCKIES AND A LITTLE BIT IN NORTH DAKOTA  HERE HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY, COOLER AND ON THE CHILLY SIDE, ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST, LOW  TEMPERATURES TONIGHT, I CAN SAY TEENS AND TWENTIES ACROSS MOST OF THE NORTHERN PLAINS  NORTHERN ROCKIES AND PRETTY MUCH MORE THE SAME TOMORROW. THE ONLY REAL WARM AREA IS  FLORIDA. THERE'S A JET STREAM AND YOU CAN SEE AS WE MOVE THROUGH TIME, THE BIG TROUGH  FOR EARLY NEXT WEEK INTO THE WEST, IT COMES EASTWARD AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE  WEEK AND IN THE NORTHEAST BY THE END OF THE WEEK AND THAT IS A SHOT OF VERY COLD AIR. THAT'S A  LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY, NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. FIRST OF ALL, AUSTIN, NEVADA,  PARTLY SUNNY AND VERY COLD TODAY HIGH JUMP OF TWENTY FIVE.  BEATRICE, NEBRASKA, SUNSHINE AND INCREASING CLOUDS IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGH OF FORTY FIVE AND  CHATTANOOGA TENNESSEE A MIXTURE OF SUNSHINE AND CLOUDS WILL BE CHILLY WITH A HIGH OF FIFTY FIVE.

TEASE
WHEN WE COME BACK OUR EXPERT WHEAT AGRONOMIST IS HERE WITH A FEW  TIPS ON SETTING UP THAT PLANTER AND WE VISIT AN INDIANA FARM WITH HERITAGE THAT CAN BE LINKED TO ONE OF  THE FOUNDING FATHERS OF THIS COUNTRY.

FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV
ON FARM JOURNAL COLLEGE TV THIS WEEK, WHEAT AGRONOMIST PHIL NEEDHAM  IS HERE TO DISCUSS SETTING UP YOUR SEEDER FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT. PHIL FOR THOSE PEOPLE THAT ARE OUT HERE WHO WORK IN THESE FIELDS  TODAY WHAT ARE YOU SEEING FOR SEEDER SET UP WELL RIGHT OFF WHAT  WERE SEEING THIS FALL AGAIN ON THE NO TILL FIELDS WE'RE ABLE TO GET  SEEDING DEPTH PRETTY CONSISTENT WE'RE ABLE TO GET THE WHEAT SEEDS IN  THE GROUND ONE TO ONE HALF INCHES IN MOST EXAMPLES SOM OF THESE  FIELDS WITH CORN RESIDUE LIKE WHAT WE'VE SEEN HERE WE HAVE TO GO A  LITTLE BIT DEEPER BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY THE VOLUME OF RESIDUE ON THE SOIL  SURFACE ARTIFICIALLY DECREASES YOUR SEEDING DEPTH. YOU HAVE TO SET IT  A LITTLE BIT DEEPER TO COMPENSATE FOR THE RESIDUE IN MOST EXAMPLES  THIS FALL WE'RE ABLE TO GET MUCH MORE CONSISTENT SEEDING DEPTH  CONSISTENCY BECAUSE THE SOILS ARE FIRM AND WE HAVE TO SEED A LITTLE BIT  DEEPER BECAUSE OF THE RESIDUE WE'RE SEEING WE'RE ABLE TO GET THE  SEEDS INTO MOISTURE BETTER IN THE NO TILL ON A CONSISTENT BASIS ACROSS  DIFFERENT SOIL TYPES DIFFERENT TOPOGRAPHYS AND WHAT WE ARE WHEN  WE'RE WORKING THE GROUND OBVIOUSLY THEIR ARE AREAS IN THE COUNTRY  WHERE THEY NEED TO WORK THE GROUND FOR DIFFERENT REASONS MAYBE TO  A LEVEL SOME FIELDS OFF FOR EXAMPLE.  SURE AND THERE'S ALWAYS SOME  NEEDS FOR THAT BUT I'M A STRONG PROPONENT OF NO TILLING WHERE IT'S  PRACTICAL ALL RIGHT AND FOR THOSE WHO GET A GOOD STAND TO START THE  YEAR THAT PAYS OFF LATER AND YEAH. IN MOST INSTANCES WHEAT YIELDS ARE A  FUNCTION OF UNIFORM STANDS SO WE WANT UNIFORM ESTABLISHMENT WE  WANT EVERY PLANT TO COME UP AT THE SAME TIME OUT OF THE GROUND IF  POSSIBLE AND WE HAVE SOME RESEARCH TO BACK THAT UP.
