TODAY ON AGDAY

JULY 12, 2013

 

FARM BILL VOTE:

GOOD MORNING I'M TYNE MORGAN IN FOR CLINTON GRIFFITHS. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN DECADES, THE FARM BILL IS JUST THAT - A 'FARM' BILL AS THE HOUSE APPROVES A VERSION WITHOUT FOOD STAMPS AND NUTRITION PROGRAMS.

SUPPLY AND DEMAND REPORT:

USDA RELEASED ITS MONTHLY REPORT, BUT DIDN'T PROVIDE MANY SURPRISES TO THE MARKET. OUR FRIENDS AT PROFARMER SAY THIS TIME OF YEAR, YOU REALLY NEED A BIG CHANGE IN THE USDA REPORTS TO MOVE THE MARKETS. BUT WITH NO REAL SURPRISES, THAT MEANT NO MAJOR MARKET MOVES. HOWEVER, CORN, SOYBEAN AND WHEAT FUTURES ALL CLOSED HIGHER ON THE DAY.

WHEAT PRODUCTION:

THE WINTER WHEAT OUTLOOK HAS IMPROVED AS USDA PUSHES HIGHER ITS PRODUCTION NUMBERS FOR THE CROP. THE AG DEPARTMENTS PEGS THE CROP AT ONE-AND-A-HALF BILLION, UP TWO PERCENT FROM JUNE. AVERAGE NATIONAL YIELD IS JUST SHY OF 48 BUSHELS AN ACRE, AN INCREASE OF ONE-POINT-SEVEN BUSHELS FROM LAST MONTH.

PROFARMER'S BRIAN GRETE TAKES A CLOSER LOOK AT THE STOCKS NUMBER.

3I SHOW:

SPEAKING OF WHEAT, CLINTON'S IN WHEAT COUNTRY. HE'S AT THE THREE-EYE SHOW IN DODGE CITY, KANSAS, CLINTON.

CROP DAMAGE:

ACROSS THE EASTERN CORNBELT, FARMERS ARE SCOUTING THEIR FIELDS AFTER A POWERFUL STORM CHARGED THROUGH EASTERN ILLINOIS, ACROSS INDIANA AND INTO NORTHWEST OHIO. THIS IS WHAT SOME FIELDS IN CASS COUNTY, INDIANA LOOK LIKE THIS MORNING. WHILE WE DON'T HAVE SPECIFIC ACREAGE NUMBERS, WE KNOW NUMEROUS CORN FIELDS WERE HIT BY 70-TO-80 MILE AN HOUR WINDS. VERY PROMISING CORN CROPS WERE BENT OVER, IN SOME CASES THEY CROP SUFFERED GREEN SNAP. THERE ARE SIMILAR IMAGES IN ILLINOIS AND OHIO. MIKE HOFFMAN HAS DETAILS FROM THE AGDAY WEATHER-CENTER, MIKE.

CROP WATCH:

WE RECEIVED NUMEROUS PHOTOS FROM FARMERS WHO ARE LIKELY TO LOSE A PORTION OF THEIR VERY GOOD CORN CROPS.  WHILE SOME FIELDS MAY BOUNCE BACK FROM THEIR BENT POSITION, OTHERS JUST SNAPPED. THIS PHOTO CAME FROM JOHN PHIPPS IN CHRISMAN, ILLINOIS. HE'S THE HOST FOR U-S FARM REPORT. HE SAYS THERE WAS PROBABLY MORE DAMAGE FROM THE POWER COMPANY TRUCKS TRYING TO GET TO THE POWER POLE THAT  SNAPPED IN THE STORM.

SURVEY:

JUST A YEAR AGO, CROPS ACROSS THE CORN BELT WERE SHRIVELING AS WATER SHUT OFF AND THE 2012 DROUGHT SET IN. ONE GROUP SAYS COVER CROPS HELPED BOOST YIELDS DURING THE SEVERE DRY SPELL.

MISSISSIPPI RIVER:

THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER HAS RE-OPENED NEAR NEW ORLEANS AFTER CREWS RETRIEVED A SUNKEN TOWBOAT.

PROFIT BRIEFING:

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, NEW CROP CORN TEMPORARILY DROPPED BELOW FIVE DOLLARS RECENTLY. WHAT WILL BE NEEDED TO SUSTAIN A PRICE RALLY FOR NEW CROP CORN AND SOYBEANS?

WATERSPOUT:

FOR THE SECOND TIME IN TWO DAYS, A WATERSPOUT CAME ASHORE IN THE TAMPA BAY AREA OF FLORIDA. THE TWIRLING WINDS WERE CAUGHT ON AMATEUR VIDEO BY JANET WAGNER OF PALMETTO, FLORIDA. THE SYSTEM THEN MOVED OVER LAND AND CAUSED SOME MINOR DAMAGE TO A MOBILE HOME PARK. ANOTHER WATERSPOUT ON MONDAY CAUSED DAMAGE TO THE SHINGLES OF A HOME, KNOCKED DOWN TREE BRANCHES. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAYS ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS IN THE TAMPA BAY AREA PRODUCED THE WATERSPOUTS.

PIVOT ROCK:

A PHOTO-OP BACK DROP FOR COUNTLESS NEWLYWEDS OVER THE DECADES. NOW, THE SOUVENIR IS FOR SALE IN THE OZARKS. AGDAY AFFILIATE KY 3'S STEVE GRANT TELL US HOW IT CAN BE YOURS, AND YOU CAN EVEN CHARGE ADMISSION.

FROM THE FARM RECIPE:

IN TODAY'S FRESH FROM THE FARM FAVORITES, WE HAVE THE PERFECT SUMMER SALAD RECIPE THAT COMES FROM SOUTHWEST MISSOURI. THE BEST PART? MOST OF THE INGREDIENTS YOU COULD GET RIGHT IN YOUR BACKYARD GARDEN.
