TODAY ON AGDAY
JANUARY 11, 2013

TEXAS RAIN:

GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. A SLOW MOVING SYSTEM HAS SPENT THE WEEK DROPPING MUCH NEEDED RAINS THROUGH THE SOUTHERN PLAINS.

DROUGHT MONITOR:

THANKS TYNE. GOOD NEWS FOR THOSE FOLKS. AND TO SEE HOW DRY ITS BEEN WE LOOK AT THE LATEST DROUGHT MONITOR.

OKLAHOMA DRYNESS:

IN OKLAHOMA MANY PLACES ALSO SAW RAIN THIS WEEK. BUT PEOPLE ARE BEGINNING TO WONDER WHETHER THE STATE IS AT THE BEGINNING OF LONGER TERM DRYNESS. AUSTIN MOORE WITH OKLAHOMA STATE'S SUNUP PROGRAM SAYS THE EXPERTS ADVIZE A CHANGE IN MANAGEMENT PRACTICES.

CROP WATCH:

WITH AN EYE ON CROP CONDITIONS IN THE CENTRAL AND NORTHERN PLAINS, MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US WITH TODAY'S CROP WATCH.  GOOD MORNING MIKE.

PROFIT BRIEFING:

FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE IMPLEMENTING A NEW POLICY, USDA WILL RELEASE ITS FIRST SET OF MAJOR GRAIN REPORTS TODAY AT NOON EASTERN. AS YOU MAY KNOW, THE PREVIOUS RELEASE TIME WAS EIGHT-30. BUT WHEN THE MAJOR EXCHANGES SWITCHED TO LONGER TRADING DAYS, USDA FELT IT NEEDED TO CHANGE THE RELEASE TIME. THE MARKET IS WATCHING VERY CAREFULLY AS THE NEW ERA BEGINS. BUT WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE MARKET GETS ITS HANDS ON THE DATA? PROFARMER EDITOR CHIP FLORY AND SENIOR MARKET ANALYST BRIAN GRETE JOIN US FROM THE PRO FARMER STUDIOS TO LOOK AT SOME POSSIBLE MARKET MOVES.

AFTERSCHOOL ROBINS:

THE HOURS 'AFTER' SCHOOL CAN BE JUST AS CRITICAL TO A CHILD'S LEARNING AS THEIR HOURS DURING SCHOOL. IN THIS REPORT PROVIDED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE,  CHUCK DENNEY REPORTS ON THE "EXCEL" PROJECT - A COMBINATION OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, ENCOURAGEMENT WITH ACADEMICS AND FUN LEARNING

UN FOOD INDEX:

IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY, THE U-N SAYS FOOD PRICES CONTINUE TO FALL. IT RECENTLY RELEASED ITS FOOD PRICE INDEX--A MEASURE OF INTERNATIONAL FOOD PRICES.

COFFEE GROUNDS:

AND THE WASTE FROM THAT MORNING POT OF JOE, MAY BE MORE VALUABLE THAN YOU THINK. SCIENTISTS OUT OF SPAIN RECENTLY TOOK A LOOK AT THE ANTIOXIDANT CONTENT OF COFFEE WASTE AND FOUND A LARGE AMOUNT OF THE ANTIOXIDANTS DON'T GET BREWED OUT--THEY STAY IN THE WASTE. THESE RESEARCHERS SUGGEST, THAT GLOBALLY ABOUT 20 MILLION TONS OF WASTE IS TOSSED OUT. THEY SAY THOSE BENEFICIAL COMPOUNDS INCLUDING ADDITIONAL CAFFINE COULD BE EXTRACTED.
