JANUARY 25, 2017


HEADLINES
THE PRESIDENT TAKES ACTION TO GET PIPELINE  PROJECTS STARTED AGAIN.  THE NEW ADMINISTRATION IS 'CLOSE LIPPED' ON  SOME OF ITS AG RESEARCH. IN AGRIBUSINESS... CHECKING CROP CONDITIONS IN  SOUTH AMERICA. ARGENTINA HAS BEENTHEIR BREAD BASKET WINNER FOR  HEADLINES. THE PACKER TV LOOKS AT THE NEW ADMINISTRATION'S POLICIES AND ITS IMPACTS ON CITRUS. AND THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING YOUR HEART  CHECKED OUT AT AN EARLY AGE. AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE,  LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO.

KEYSTONE, DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINES
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. TWO PIPELINE PROJECTS THAT CAME TO  A GRINDING HALT UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION APPEAR TO BE GETTING  THE GREENLIGHT FROM THE COUNTRY'S NEW CHIEF EXECUTIVE. ON THE SECOND LEGISLATIVE DAY OF THE NEW ADMINISTRATION, PRESIDENT  TRUMP SIGNED EXECUTIVE ORDERS TO ADVANCE CONSTRUCTION OF THE  KEYSTONE X-L PIPELINE AND THE DAKOTA ACCESS OIL PIPELINE. PRESIDENT OBAMA KILLED THE K-X-L PROJECT IN LATE 2015, DECLARING IT  WOULD HINDER HIS EFFORTS TO CLINCH A GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE DEAL. THE PROJECT ALSO FAILED TO GET APPROVAL FROM HILLARY CLINTON'S STATE  DEPARTMENT. THE U-S GOVERNMENT MUST APPROVE THE PIPELINE BECAUSE IT  CROSSES INTO THE COUNTRY FROM CANADA. TRUMP DESCRIBES THE REGULATORY PROCESS AS A "TANGLED-UP MESS." "WE'RE GOING TO RENEGOTIATE SOME OF THE TERMS AND IF THEY'D LIKE, WE'LL SEE IF WE CAN GET THAT  PIPELINE BUILT. LOT OF JOBS, 28,000 JOBS, GREAT CONSTRUCTION JOBS."THE PRESIDENT'S EXECUTIVE ORDER ALSO TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE DAKOTA  ACCESS PIPELINE. YOU PROBABLY REMEMBER LAST MONTH, CONSTRUCTION OF  THE PIPELINE WAS HALTED WHILE NATIVE AMERICANS AND ENVIRONMENTALISTS  PROTESTED THAT PROJECT. THE U-S ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS IS STUDYING ALTERNATE ROUTES FOR A  SHORT SECTION OF THE OIL LINE.

EPA, USDA COMMUNICATION BLACKOUT
WHILE THE AG DEPARTMENT IS STILL WITHOUT A TOP ADMINISTATOR, USDA  APPEARS TO BE CONTROLLING  THE COMMUNICATIONS COMING OUT OF ONE OF  ITS AGENCIES. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS IS REPORTING THE AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH SERVICE  - OR A-R-S - WILL IMMEDIATELY CEASE RELEASING ANY - QUOTE - 'PUBLIC FACING'  DOCUMENTS.  THIS INCLUDES NEWS RELEASES, PHOTOTS, NEWS FEEDS AND  SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT. MEANWHILE, THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ALSO LOCKING DOWN PUBLIC  COMMUNICATION FROM THE EPA. NEW RULES NOW BARRING STAFF FROM SENDING PRESS RELEASES, UPDATING  BLOGS OR POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA. IT'S ALSO PUTTING A TEMPORARY SUSPENSION ON THINGS LIKE AWARDING NEW  CONTRACTS OR GRANTS. DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, THE EPA FACED SCRUTINY OVER IT'S  SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS--ACCUSED OF PROMOTING ITEMS LIKE THE WATERS OF THE U.S. RULE.

WHEAT GROWERS SCOUTING WINTER WHEAT
MANY WHEAT GROWERS IN KANSAS CONTINUE TO SCOUT THEIR WINTER WHEAT  CROPS BUT IT APPEARS THEIR FIELDS MAY HAVE ESCAPED SERIOUS DAMAGE  FROM A RECENT ICE STORM. DURING THE WEEK OF JANUARY TENTH TO THE 16TH, MANY LOCATIONS IN  KANSAS WERE HIT BY AN ICE STORM. THE CROP HAS HAD VERY LITTLE SNOW  COVER TO PROTECT IT. FARMERS WERE WONDERING IF ICE SAT ON THE WHEAT FOR A LONG ENOUGH  PERIOD TO SUSTAIN DAMAGE. ONE KANSAS STATE WHEAT SPECIALIST DOESN'T THINK SO.  AND HE SAYS  TILLAGE PRACTICES MAY HAVE HELPED SOME FIELDS. "A FIELD LIKE THIS ONE BEHIND ME THAT HAS VERY LITTLE RESIDUE MIGHT BE  MORE EXPOSED TO THOSE CONDITIONS BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NO RESIDUE  TO TRAP POCKETS OF AIR INSIDE IT. NOW IF IT'S A NO TILL SITUATION WITH HEAVY  RESIDUE THEN WE'LL HAVE POCKET OF OXYGEN WITHIN THAT RESIDUE THAT MAY  ALLOW THE WHEAT TO BE UNDER A NICE COVER FOR AS LONG AS 40 DAYS OR SO  WITHOUT SUFFERING ANY CONSEQUENCES." LOLLATO SAYS IF ANYTHING THE ICE WILL BENEFIT THIS CROP. IT PROVIDED  ANYWHERE FROM A HALF INCH TO THREE INCHES OF MOISTURE TO THE STATE  WHICH WILL PROVIDE AMPLE MOISTURE TO HELP GET THIS CROP TO EARLY  SPRING. SIXTY-FIVE PERCENT OF THE STATE IS IN SOME LEVEL OF DROUGHT.

GUMZ FARM TPOY
YESTERDAY WE VISITED A DAIRY IN WISCONSIN, TODAY WE'RE BACK IN THE DAIRY  STATE BUT TODAY'S THIRD AND FINAL CANDIDATE FOR TOP PRODUCER OF THE  YEAR HAS A MUCH DIFFERENT FOCUS. THE GUMZ BROTHERS TOOK OVER THE OPERATION FROM THEIR GRANDFATHER  AND TODAY THESE PRODUCE AND ROW CROP FARMERS ARE FINDING NEW WAYS  TO UNLOCK VALUE FROM THEIR WISCONSIN FARM. FROM HARVEST,  TO WAREHOUSE, THE GUMZ FARM IN ENDEAVOR WISCONSIN IS  NOT YOUR TYPICAL MIDWEST OPERATION. "WE RAISE POTATOS ONIONS CARROTS MINT CORN AND BEANS." AND THEY DO IT ON SOILS CALLED MUCK. "ANYWHERE FROM 50 TO 60 PERCENT ORGANIC MATTER. SO IT HAS A LOT OF WATER HOLDING CAPACITY BUT  IT ALSO HAS A LOT OF QUALITIES THAT ARE TRICKY OR TREACHEROUS."  DARK RICH SOIL IS PERFECTLY SUITED FOR THEIR VEGETABLE BUSINESS. "IT PROVIDES FOR A VERY GOOD COLOR RED POTATO YIELD IS GOOD. ONIONS ONIONS REQUIRE A FAIR  AMOUNT OF WATER AND WE ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE THAT AND THE MUCK REQUIRES A LITTLE LESS FERTILIZER  SO IT WORKS OUT WELL FOR OUR SITUATION." GETTING HERE TOOK GENERATIONS AND A LOT OF WORK. IN THE EARLY 1900'S RICHARD AND RODERICK'S GREAT GRANDFATHER  EMIGRATED FROM GERMANY TO NORTHERN INDIANA. BUT IT WAS THEIR GRANDFATHER THAT REALLY GREW THE FARM, ADDING THE  VEGETABLE CROPS AND EXPANDING INTO WISCONSIN. "RODERICK AND I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BUY THE BUSINESS OR THE OPERATIONS SIDE OF IT FROM HIM  IN 1994." "RICHARD AND I HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP AND WE WERE ABLE TO DO THIS TOGETHER." TOGETHER THEY BEGAN THE SLOW PROCESS OF OWNERSHIP .... "A LOT OF THE LAND WAS OWNED BY OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS AND OVER NEXT 14 YEARS WE WERE ABLE  TO PURCHASE THOSE LANDS FROM OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS" AS THEY WORKED THE THE GUMZ KEPT THEIR FOCUS NOT JUST ON THE FARM-- EVEN THOUGH ITS ABOUT DOUBLE THE ORIGINAL SIZE...BUT THEY ALSO FOUND  OPPORTUNITY BY ADDING VALUE TO WHAT THEY GREW. "WITH THE POTATOES AND THE ONIONS WE TRY TO CAPTURE MORE OF THE DOLLAR AT THE FARM LEVEL WHICH  MEANS WE DO A LITTLE VALUE ADDED SO WE PACKAGE IT AND TRY TO MAKE IT A PROFIT CENTER AS WELL.  WE DO THAT YEAR ROUND." FROM MODERNIZING STORAGE... FLOATING AND SORTING... NATS... TO HIGH TECH PACKAGING EQUIPMENT... THE TECHNOLOGY HAS PUT US ON THE FOREFRONT OF ALL OF OUR INDUSTRY AND I THINK WHEN WE HAVE  MADE THE INVESTMENT IN THE BUILDING AND THE TECHNOLOGY OUR CUSTOMERS SEE THAT AND SEE THAT  WE'RE COMMITTED TO PRODUCING A GOOD CROP, COMMITTED TO QUALITY, COMMITTED TO FOOD SAFETY  AND THEY WANT TO PARTNER WITH US BECAUSE THEY SEE THAT WE'RE WILLING TO MAKE THAT  COMMITMENT." GUMZ FARMS IS MAKING THE RETAIL MARKET A MAJOR PART OF THE BUSINESS. AS MOST MANAGERS WILL TELL YOU-- WORKING WITH PEOPLE... "WE'RE ALWAYS DEALING WITH PEOPLE WHETHER I'M DEALING WITH A CUSTOMER, WHETHER I'M DEALING  WITH AN EMPLOYEE WHETHER I'M DEALING WITH A SUPPLIER THE BULK OF MY DAY IS DEALING WITH  PEOPLE." AND WORKING EFFICIENTLY "THAT'S PROBABLY THE BIGGEST DRIVER. WHATEVER WE DO WE TRY TO DO EFFICIENTLY. IF THAT MEANS  UNLOADING POTATO WAGONS MORE EFFICIENTLY OR TRANSPORTING PRODUCT MORE EFFICIENTLY." ARE THE CORNERSTONES OF BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS... "WE'RE AT A POINT WHERE WE'D LIKE TO REFINE SOME OF THE ACTIVITIES THAT ARE ONGOING NOW AND  BEFORE WE TAKE THE NEXT LEAP." "WE'RE LOOKING TO DO THIS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION, FOR THE NEXT GENERATIONS. NOT JUST TRYING TO  SURVIVE UNTIL WE RETIRE..." A LONG VIEW...OF AN OPERATION BUILT ON MUCK... BUT GROWING ON A SOLID  FOUNDATION.CONGRATULATIONS TO GUMZ FARMS, A CANDIDATE FOR 2017 TOP PRODUCER OF  THE YEAR. NOW THAT YOU'VE SEEN ALL THREE CANDIDATES. WE'LL SHARE THE WINNER  WITH YOU TOMORROW MORNING FOLLOWING THE AWARDS CEREMONY LATER  TONIGHT AT TOP PRODUCER SEMINAR IN CHICAGO. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THREE FINALISTS.

CROP COMMENTS
MIKE HOFFMAN A TOP PRODUCER OF WEATHER INFORMATION IN HIS OWN RIGHT. HE JOINS US FOR THIS MORNING'S CROP COMMENTS. HELLO MIKE. GOOD MORNING, CLINTON.  LET'S START OFF IN GRATIOT COUNTY, MICHIGAN.  PAUL GROSS SENDING US THIS VIEW OUTSIDE OF HIS WINDOW.  HE SAYS IT'S A BALMY 40 DEGREES THIS WEEK AND TEMPERATURES WILL SOON  DROP INTO THE 30S.  HE SAYS HE PREFERS THE SNOW COVER AND FROZEN GROUND.  AND A VIEWER FROM MCLENNAN COUNTY TEXAS SENDING THIS PHOTO TO  AGWEB. EVEN THOUGH HAIL IS NEVER WELCOME, A SMALL AFTERNOON STORM WITH A  LITTLE HAIL MAKES FOR A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE. AND NOW HERE ARE SOME HOMETOWN TEMPS.  WHEN WE COME BACK WE'LL LOOK AT SOUTH AMERICA INCLUDING HOW  WEATHER AND HARVEST POTENTIAL COULD IMPACT MARKET PRICES BACK HERE  AT HOME. AND THIS YOUNG MOM NEVER THOUGHT SHE NEEDED TO BE FOCUSED ON  HEART HEALTH IN HER 20'S. WE'LL TELL YOU ABOUT A NEW STUDY AND WHEN  HEART CHECKS ARE RECOMMENDED TO BEGIN. AGDAY - BROUGHT TO YOU BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN.  WITH A UNIQUELY POWERFUL  FORMULATION OF PROVEN INGREDIENTS, RESICORE GIVES YOU EXTRAORDINARY POWER OVER WEEDS.  LEARN MORE AT POWEROVERWEEDS.COM.

FLOOR OF THE CME
IN AGRIBUSINESS WE BEGIN WITH A CHECK ON COMMODITY MARKETS HERE AT  MIDWEEK. FOR THAT WE HEAD TO THE FLOOR OF THE CME IN CHICAGO. GRAIN MARKETS HERE IN CHICAGO MOSTLY LOWER ON TUESDAY AFTER A  HIGHER START. THE CORN MARKET ACTUALLY STARTED THE DAY VERY EARLY  THIS MORNING WITH SOME MULTI-MONTH HIGHS.  WE HAVE SEEN A CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP WHICH I AM KIND OF EXCITED ABOUT,  REALLY. THE STORY FOR MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS HAS BEEN THAT  THE FARMER IS JUST AN ENORMOUS HOLDER OF OLD CROP CORN BUSHELS THAT  THE MARKET CAN'T RALLY. AND WHAT WE'VE SEEN IN THE CFTC REPORTS  RECENTLY IS THAT FUNDS HAVE COVERED AN ENORMOUS PORTION OF THEIR  LAST SHORT POSITION. THEY'RE STILL SHORT 30 OR 40 CONTRACTS BUT THEY  WERE SHORT CLOSE TO 180 OR 190 THOUSAND BACK IN SEPTEMBER. WE'VE  SEEN SOME BIG SHORT COVERING. WE'VE SEEN SOME FARMER SELLING. WE'RE  TOLD THE MARKET HAS A TOUGH TIME RALLYING WHEN THE FARMER IS THE BIG  LONG. THE FARMER IS STILL THE BIG LONG BUT THAT LONG HAS BEEN  DECREASED HERE A LITTLE RECENTLY.  AGAIN, THIS IS JOE VACLAVIK, WITH STANDARD GRAIN COMING TO YOU FROM THE  CME GROUP FLOOR IN CHICAGO. 

AGRIBUSINESS
JAROD CREED WITH GAVILON OUR GUEST HERE AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK TODAY JAROD LET'S TALK ABOUT THE SOUTH AMERICAN CROP BECAUSE I THINK  PRETTY MUCH ALL EYES NOT ON OUR FIELD. THEY'RE ON THEIR FIELDS TO SEE  WHAT 'S GOING ON IN ARGENTINA 'S HAD A FEW HICCUPS ABSOLUTELY.  ARGENTINA HAS BEEN THEIR BREAD BASKET WINNER FOR HEADLINES. IN ABOUT  FIFTEEN TO TWELVE. THE FIFTEEN PERCENT OF THEIR GROWING AREA IF  EXCESSIVE MOISTURE AND ADD THAT TO TWELVE TO FIFTEEN PERCENT ITS HAS  TO BE PUT INTO A REALITY. SO LET 'S BACK UP ABOUT SIXTY DAYS AGO THE USDA WAS TELLING US THAT WE EXPECTED ROUGHLY A FIFTY SEVEN MILLION METRIC  TON CROP OUT OF ARGENTINA SPECIFICALLY LET 'S ALSO KNOW THAT  ARGENTINA OUT OF ALL THEIR PRODUCTION SEVENTY FIVE PERCENT OF IT IS  USED FOR SOYBEAN CRUSH IN THE COUNTRY OF ARGENTINA ONLY FIFTEEN  PERCENT OF IT IS EXPORTED SO ARGENTINA BRAZIL ARE MUCH MUCH  DIFFERENT. BRAZIL MAJORITY EXPORT ARGENTINA MAJORITY CRUSH WITH ALL  THAT BE IN SAID TODAY 'S MARKETPLACE THERE 'S ESTIMATES RANGING  ANYWHERE FROM FIFTY SEVEN MILLION METRIC TONS STILL TO SOME EVEN BELOW FIFTY IS ROUGHLY FORTY MILLION BUSHEL PER MILLION METRIC TON SO  YOU CAN TELL THE THE AFFECT ON WHAT THAT CAN CUT WOULD HAVE DRAW THE  LINE IN THE MIDDLE TODAY. CALL IT FIFTY THREE TO FIFTY FOUR. ARGENTINA IS  ACTUALLY WRAPPING UP PLANTING SO WE'RE NOT COMPLETELY DONE THERE  AND REALIZE THAT IF ARGENTINA DOES COME OUT WITH THAT FIFTY THREE FIFTY  FOUR MILLION METRIC TON CROP OF WHAT KIND OF IMPACT DOES THAT HAVE ON  THE UNITED STATES EASY ESTIMATES RIGHT NOW WOULD SAY THAT MAYBE THAT  WOULD BRING AN ADDITIONAL TWENTY MILLION BUSHEL WORTH OF EXPORTS TO  THE UNITED STATES AND MAYBE PERHAPS ABOUT A MILLION METRIC TONS OF  SOYBEAN MEAL BUT MEAL YOU CAN HARDLY GIVE IT AWAY IN TODAY. 'S  MARKETPLACE ANYWAYS SO A LITTLE BIT INTERESTING STORY TO PLAY OUT  THERE FOR ARGENTINA WHEN YOU DO JUMP TO THE NORTH FOR BRAZIL THEIR  FORECASTS OF AROUND ONE HUNDRED THREE MILLION METRIC TON THEY HAVE  STARTED HARVESTING MOTTO GROSSO THERE 'S PLENTY OF BOOTS ON THE  GROUND DOING SOME CROP TOUR IS RIGHT NOW. EARLY RESULTS ARE AWFUL  GOOD RIGHT SO WE GOTTA KEEP AN EYE ON THAT. A COUPLE MILLION METRIC  TON INCREASE IN BRAZIL COULD RELATIVELY QUICKLY WIPE AWAY ANY CONCERN  IN ARGENTINA ALL RIGHT SO SO LOTS OF VERY DYNAMIC SITUATION AND THEY'RE  A LOT LEFT TO HAPPEN ABSOLUTELY ALRIGHT APPRECIATED IT WILL BE BACK  MORE AGDAY IN JUST MINUTE. THE NEXT GENERATION OF HEAVY DUTY ENGINE OILS ARE HERE.  INTRODUCING DELO 400 WITH  ISOSYN ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY.  THE NEW DELO 400 PRODUCT LINE IS BIGGER AND BETTER THAN  EVER. ADD STRATEGO YIELD FUNGICIDE AT THE EARLY SEASON RATE TO YOUR POSTEMERGENCE HERBICIDE  TANK MIX. YOU'LL GET HEALTHIER FIELDS, HIGHER YIELDS AND A HIGHER RETURN ON INVESTMENT.

WEATHER
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN. MIKE WE'VE BEEN  TALKING A LOT ABOUT THE WEST COAST BUT THE UPPER MIDWEST GETTING  SOME SNOW HERE IN WINTER WHICH WE EXPECT.WELL IT 'S RIGHT IN THE  SYSTEM CAME FROM THE WEST COAST BUT IT 'S NOW MOVING EASTWARD. BUT  I'LL TELL YOU RIGHT NOW THAT'S THE CABOOSE OF THIS TRAIN OF STORMS  THAT'S BEEN COMING EASTWARD. IN FACT THAT NEXT FRONT OFF THE WEST  COAST IS JUST GONNA FALL APART AS TIME GOES ON. SO THIS INITIAL ONE AGAIN  THE CABOOSE OF THE  TRAIN OF STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE EASTWARD  ACROSS THE GREAT LAKES SNOW WILL START TO DROP A LITTLE SOUTH THERE  OVER IOWA. YOU CAN SEE BY LATER TODAY EVEN IN THE FAR NORTHERN  ILLINOIS JUST SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSHOWERS ALONG THAT COLD  FRONT AS IT MOVES INTO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY AND THE SOUTHEAST. HEADING THRU TONIGHT AND INTO TOMORROW MORNING THAT FRONT WILL  MOVE INTO THE CAROLINAS AND VIRGINIA AND THE LAKE EFFECT SNOW MACHINE  WILL GET GOING FOR THE FIRST TIME AT LEAST A COUPLE OF WEEKS IN THE  WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE GREAT LAKES. A STORM SYSTEM THAT OFF THE  NORTHEASTERN AREA WILL CONTINUE TO CUT A MOVE IN THE EASTERN CANADA AND THE COMBINATION OF THE COUNTERCLOCKWISE FLOW AROUND THESE  AREAS OF LOW PRESSURE AND THAT CLOCKWISE FLOW AROUND AREAS OF HIGH  PRESSURE. FUNNELING IN COLDER AIR AS WE HEAD THROUGH THE NEXT  SEVERAL DAYS FOR THE CENTER OF THE COUNTRY. WATCH THAT NEXT FRONT  KINDA JUST FALL APART AS IT COMES INTO THE WEST COAST HAS COME INTO A  BIG RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURES WILL SHOW YOU ON THE JET STREAM.  IN THE  MEANTIME YOU CAN SEE THE LAKE EFFECTS SNOW MACHINE WITH ALL THE WAY  DOWN INTO PARTS OF WEST VIRGINIA AS WE HEAD THROUGH TOMORROW  AFTERNOON. AND THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO MOVE THAT WAY SO TURNING  CHILLIER ALL THE WAY TOWARD THE GULF COAST. THERE'S A PRECIPITATION S  WAS OVER THE PAST TWENTY FOUR HOURS A LOT OF IT HAS BEEN OVER NEW  ENGLAND ESPECIALLY MAINE, ALSO A LITTLE BIT WITH THAT SNOW COMING  ACROSS NEBRASKA AND SOUTH DAKOTA INTO IOWA AND MINNESOTA. ADDING IN  THE NEXT THIRTY SIX HOURS WILL CONTINUE TO SEE THAT MOISTURE  SPREADING EASTWARD ACROSS MICHIGAN. WE'LL SEE SOME AREAS OF  MOISTURE ALONG THAT COLD FRONT BUT YOU'LL NOTICE NOTHING HEAVY  SHOWING UP ON OUR COMPUTER MODEL THERE. IT 'S MAINLY SNOW NOW ALL IN  A GOOD CHUNK OF THE THE COUNTRY THAT IS FALLING ANYWAY  I KNOW A LOT SO  LOTS OF YOU AREN'T SEEN ANYTHING AT THE MOMENT BUT SAYS SNOW  ESTIMATE THE PAST TWENTY FOUR HOURS PRETTY HEAVY ACROSS NORTHERN  NEBRASKA, SOUTHERN SOUTH DAKOTA AND THAT WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD  EASTWARD ALONG THE BORDER WITH MINNESOTAAND IOWA AND ALL THE WAY  INTO WISCONSIN. AND OF COURSE THE SNOW LINGERING IN THE PARTS OF NEW  ENGLAND AS YOU CAN SEE. HIGH TEMPS TODAY IN THE TWENTIES IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS, SEVENTY 'S IN THE SOUTHEAST. LOWS TONIGHT GOING  START TO TURN A LITTLE CHILLY OR EVEN INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS WERE  LOOKING AT LOW 'S IN THE THIRTIES. SINGLE DIGITS SOME OF THE NORTHERN  PLAINS AND CONTINUES TO TURN CHILLY DURING THE DAY TOMORROW.THE 70'S CONFINED TO SOUTH FLORIDA. THERE IS A JET STREAM AND YOU CAN SEE THAT  TROUGH STARTS TO BRING IN THE COLD AIR. BUT WATCH THESE LITTLE PIECES  OF ENERGY COMING UP OVER THE RIDGE, DROPPING IT DOWN INTO A BIG  TROUGH. AS WE HEAD INTO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.SO COLD AND COLDER  AIR COMING BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY. THAT 'S A LOOK ACROSS THE  COUNTRY NOW LET 'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS. WE HEAD TO  TUCUMCARI NEW MEXICO FIRST OF ALL PARTLY TO MOSTLY SUNNY AND CHILLY  HIGH OF FORTY FIVE DEGREES. BEMIDJI MINNESOTA HAVE CONTINUED CLOUDY,  COLD HIGH OF TWENTY SEVEN AND MACON GEORGIA SUNSHINE EARLY THEN  INCREASING CLOUDS AND WARM A HIGH OF SEVENTY FIVE. 

TEASE

BUT  NEW STUDY SAYS MANY DON'T KNOW HOW SOON TO START. AGDAY - BROUGHT TO YOU BY RESICORE HERBICIDE FOR CORN.  A UNIQUELY POWERFUL FORMULATION.   EXTRAORDINARY POWER OVER WEEDS. 

THE PACKER TV
ON THE PACKER TV, PRESIDENT TRUMP'S EXECUTIVE ORDER WITHDRAWING THE  U.S. FROM THE PROPOSED TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP ALSO DRAWING  CRITICISM FROM PARTS OF THE PRODUCE INDUSTRY. CALIFORNIA CITRUS MUTUAL CALLS THE MOVE DISAPPOINTING BUT NOT  SURPRISING. CCM PRESIDENT JOEL NELSON SAYS NOW THEIR JOB IS TO ASSURE PRESIDENT  TRUMP THAT THE CALIFORNIA CITRUS INDUSTRY IS COMMITTED TO WORKING  WITH HIS ADMINISTRATION TO MAINTAIN THE EXISTING TPP LANGUAGE WHETHER  IT IS THROUGH A COUNTRY-BY-COUNTRY APPROACH OR A BROAD TRADE  AGREEMENT. ALSO IN CITRUS, THE USDA ANIMAL AND PLANT HEALTH INSPECTION SERVICE,  HAS PRESSED PAUSE ON IT'S FINAL RULE TO ALLOW FRESH LEMONS TO BE  IMPORTED FROM NORTHWEST ARGENTINA INTO THE U.S. THE 60 DAY HOLD IS BEING CHEERED BY CITRUS GROUPS. AGAIN CALIFORNIA CITRUS MUTUAL SAYS THE RULE ISSUED BACK IN DECEMBER  MAKES U.S. GROWERS VULNERABLE TO INVASIVE PESTS AND DISEASES.   ADDING THAT ARGENTINE LEMONS COULD BRING PESTS AND DISEASES SIMILAR  TO CITRUS GREENING TO CALIFORNIA-- INCLUDING THINGS LIKE LEPROSIS AND  CITRUS BLACK SPOT. ALSO FROM THE PACKER, ITS REPORTING SUPERMARKET CHAIN KROGER SAYS IT  PLANS TO ADD 10-THOUSAND PERMANENT JOBS THIS YEAR. A PRESS RELEASE SAYS ITS GROWTH SHOULD HELP CURRENT EMPLOYEES  ADVANCE IN THEIR CAREERS. IT ALSO MENTIONED CLICKLIST-- A KROGER ONLINE ORDERING AND PICKUP  SERVICE THAT IT EXPECTS TO EXPAND...ALTHOUGH IT DIDN'T SAY BY HOW MUCH. WHEN WE COME BACK, CHECKING HEART HEALTH FOR AMERICA'S FARM MOMS. AGDAY - SPONSORED BY THE ENLIST WEED CONTROL SYSTEM FROM DOW AGROSCIENCES - COMBINING THE PROVEN CONTROL OF A NEW 2-4-D AND GLYPHOSATE. TAKE CONTROL OF TOUGH WEEDS  LIKE NEVER BEFORE. 

IN THE COUNTRY
"IN THE COUNTRY - BROUGHT TO YOU BY KUBOTA.  SEE THE ALL-NEW KOMMANDER-PRO ZERO-TURN  MOWER AT KUBOTA.COM."HEART DISEASE IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR WOMEN IN THE U.S.  ON AVERAGE, A WOMAN DIES OF HEART DISEASE EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY. EXPERTS SAY THE BEST WAY TO AVOID HEART DISEASE IS TO GET SCREENED  AND KNOW YOUR RISK FACTORS. BUT A NEW NATIONAL SURVEY BY ORLANDO HEALTH SHOWS WOMEN ARE YEARS  APART WHEN IT COMES TO KNOWING WHEN TO START THOSE SCREENINGS. THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION RECOMMENDS HEALTHY HEART  SCREENINGS START AROUND AGE 20. BUT THE SURVEY FOUND ONLY ONLY 8 PERCENT OF WOMEN SAID SCREENINGS  SHOULD START IN THEIR 20S. 60-PERCENT DIDN'T THINK THEY WERE RECOMMENDED UNTIL AFTER AGE 30 - AT  LEAST A FULL DECADE LATER.  "IF WE DON'T TAKE ACTION AND START PREVENTING THE PROGRESSION OF THAT PROCESS, THEN IT'S GOING  TO JUST PROGRESS AND GET WORSE AND EVENTUALLY WE'RE GOING TO DEVELOP A SIGNIFICANT DISEASE  THAT IS GOING TO MANIFEST SUCH AS HEART ATTACK, STROKE, HEART FAILURE". :18 DOCTORS SAY SCREENINGS SHOULD INCLUDE YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE, WEIGHT,  CHOLESTEROL LEVELS AND GLUCOSE LEVELS.

CLOSE
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.  FOR ALL OF US AT AGDAY. I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
