An agronomist is concerned about fallow syndrome in fields. that remained bare this year. Harmon Wilts with AsGrow/Dekalb in western Minnesota says there were a lot of prevent plant acres in the southwest corner of the state, and for some the wet conditions persisted well into the growing season.

Soybeans were lower on fund and technical selling, ending the day near the session’s lows. Beans followed through on Friday’s post-USDA report losses, even with near-term harvest delays in some areas. The USDA numbers were a bearish surprise, with no substantial adjustments to the 2019 production numbers and higher U.S. ending stocks. Conditions in South America generally look good for planting and development, with sufficient rain in most of Brazil and improving precipitation chances for much of Argentina.

I get a kick out of listening to various reporters, pundits and talking heads trying to deal with “impeachment” as a process, what it is and what it isn’t. This morning over the span of an hour scanning various so-called issue analysis programs, I heard three so-called experts on three networks describe impeachment in three generally incorrect ways. Impeachment per se is a legal process by which a legislative body has authority to bring charges of misdoing against certain senior government officials which could lead to the official losing office.

The USDA’s latest Monthly Trade Data showed another strong. month for pork exports. University of Missouri livestock economist Scott Brown says September. exports were up 13 percent. “That’s. really driven by what was a nearly 50-million-pound increase in pork exports. going to China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan,” he says. “More than offsetting some weakness in Japan and. South Korea.”He tells Brownfield even though pork exports have increased,. it is still a tall order for the pork sector to meet USDA’s export projections. for 2019. “We’re going to have to really. see some big movements of pork out of the United States in this last quarter to. hit the USDA’s projections of 6.5 billion pounds of pork exported from the. United States.”Pork exports in 2018.

A delayed harvest has put Illinois farmers and grain drying facilities. up against increased seasonal rates for utilities to dry wet grain. Jeff Adkisson is executive vice president of the Illinois Grain and Feed Association. He tells Brownfield with colder temperatures expected this week, some facilities will be faced with higher premiums if they choose to dry grain. He says commercial customers of Ameren in Illinois, for example, have this limitation. “If you use gas on a day when it is forecast to be an average of 25 degrees or less, you get penalized by the utility company with what is called a demand charge.”He says the rates increase because of higher demand for utilities from others in the community heating their homes and businesses.

An agronomist says moisture readings on frozen crops can be deceiving. William Wynn with Pioneer tells Brownfield with the cold temperatures, soybeans will be frozen when harvested, and getting accurate moisture data will be challenging. “Your moisture tester in your combine and even your hand-held moisture tester, if you’re putting frozen beans through that, they need to take that moisture reading that you’re getting with a grain of salt. I recommend taking that sample and letting it warm up to room temperature because you’ll gain a couple of points as the beans thaw, so they may not be as dry as what you think.”Wynn says put frozen soybean samples in a sealed bag, and let them warm up to room temperature before testing moisture.
