TODAY ON AGDAY
JANUARY 2, 2013

DAIRY PRICES:

GOOD MORNING ON THIS SECOND DAY OF JANUARY. I'M TYNE MORGAN IN FOR CLINTON GRIFFITHS. WE'RE RINGING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH CONTINUED UNCERTAINTY ON FARM POLICY. AND THIS IS CREATING SPECULATION THAT MILK PRICES COULD SKYROCKET. THAT'S OUR TOP STORY ON AGDAY.

COTTON:

THERE'S ALSO UNCERTAINTY SURROUNDING COTTON ACREAGE THIS YEAR. WHILE MOST ECONOMISTS ARE SPECULATING FEWER ACRES, REGIONS LIKE THE WEST AND SOUTHEAST ARE STILL WILD CARDS AND COULD GO EITHER WAY. NATIONAL COTTON COUNCIL'S CHIEF ECONOMIST GARY ADAMS SAYS IT'S MORE THAN JUST INCREASED COMPETITION FROM GRAINS PLAYING A MAJOR FACTOR IN GROWERS' ACREAGE DECISIONS. IT'S ALSO THE LACK OF COMPETITION FROM OTHER CROPS LIKE PEANUTS. ADAMS SAYS EVEN IF WE HAVE TWO YEARS OF DECLINING ACREAGE, THIS DOESN'T NECESSARILY SIGNAL A TREND.

CROP WATCH:

LET'S GET YOUR FIRST LOOK AT FARM COUNTRY WEATHER FOR THIS NEW YEAR. MIKE HOFFMAN JOINS US FROM THE AGDAY WEATHER CENTER.

CORN COLLEGE:

IF YOU'RE A SOUTHERN FARMER AND PUTTING MORE OF YOUR ACRES TOWARDS CORN, YOU MAY BE LOOKING FOR AGRONOMIC TECHNIQUES TO IMPROVE YOUR YIELDS. WE HAVE JUST THE PLACE.

OREGON RICE:

IN AGRIBUSINESS, OREGON STATE IS WORKING TO DEVELOP A HEALTHER RICE FOR CONSUMERS, WHILE BOOSTING YIELDS AND REDUCING PESTICIDE USE FOR FARMERS.

ANALYSIS:

PAPA C’S PIES:

IF YOU DIDN'T GET YOUR FILL OVER THE HOLIDAYS ON SWEET TREATS, A TRIP TO TENNESSEE COULD HELP TOP YOU OFF. A BUSINESS IN THE VOLUNTEER STATE TO A GOOD OLD FASHION FAMILY RECIPE, AND TURNED IT INTO THEIR OWN RECIPE FOR SUCCESS. UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE'S CHUCK DENNEY TAKES US INTO THE KITCHEN OF PAPA C'S PIES TO SEE HOW THEY GOT THEIR START. THANKS, CHUCK. HE SAYS IF YOU AREN'T ABLE TOTRAVEL TO FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE, YOU'RE IN LUCK-- YOU CAN ALSO ORDER PAPA C'S PIES ONLINE AT PAPACPIES.COM.

HIDDEN SALT:

IN FOOD AND YOUR FAMILY, STATISTICS SHOW NEARLY 40% OF AMERICAN'S MAKE A WEIGHT-RELATED NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION.IF YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE, DOCTORS SAY THERE'S ONE INGREDIENT IN FOODS MOST OF US OVERLOOK. OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY'S CLARK POWELL TELLS US HOW IT CAN SHOW UP IN FOOD YOU MAY NEVER EXPECT.

FOOD ALLERGY BULLY:

WITH MANY KIDS RETURNING TO SCHOOL THIS WEEK FROM THEIR HOLIDAY BREAK, SADLY FOR SOME, IT MEANS BEING BULLIED AGAIN.

LOW CALORIE SODA:

IF ONE OF YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS IS TO CUT BACK ON CALORIE LOADED DRINKS, THE DR PEPPER GROUP MAY BE ABLE TO HELP YOU REACH THAT GOAL THIS YEAR. WHETHER YOU CALL IT POP, SODA OR COKE, FIVE NEW LOW CALORIE DRINKS MAY FIT YOUR TASTE.
