  It's kinda going to be interesting on how this is going to effect the retailers. Trump bailed the retailers out by raising the FHA borrowing limits for the producer this spring to refinance and flip and roll interest. That move basically bailed out the retailers if he didn't do that retail input sales would be in the gutter. The only thing really keeping the retailer going is this GPS grid sampling, it cut fertilizer cost , but the producer took that savings and went and bought high priced land and machinery neither now he can really afford. With chemicals and now seed in farm country going the wholesale Amazon model and 20 million acres of corn inputs not retail purchased it's going to interesting to see how many retailers are going be left in this down turn.

  what do you guys smoke?......do you live in CO and have access to the whacky tobaccy?10-20 million acres not getting planted.....ya right, I have some ocean front property in AZ for sale!! Maybe.....maybe 2-3, 5 MM on the high side, and then switched to another crop, so another commodity is even more depressed.......But perhaps Uncle Donald will bail everyone out again?? And then we can use those "grants" to keep land overpriced, and continue to make shareholders of Deere and CIH rich!!

  That's right, 10 to 20 million of corn won't get planted, how's that work for you?
