Cover Crop Seed If you have wheat stubble or have chopped corn now is a great time to seed a cover crop. Use this time to increase your soil's organic matter and water infiltration as well as reduce erosion. These fields then can be used as addiional grazing later in the fall. If you have livestock you can even get some good grazing out of it. Talk to your NCCA Agronomist today for different mixes and prices.
Lime- Summer Delivery Now is the time to start getting your lime hauled for your needs this fall. Most quaries now have a decent supply but as we come into fall those supplies are usually gone, making us truck more miles to a different quary. Also if you have wheat stubble, this is a perfect time to get some lime on.
Gypsoil is offering early prepay and early delivery incentives until the end of August. The sooner you prepay the better the deal. Come in today to see how you can save up to $4/ton and to learn about the benefits of Gypsoil brand gypsum.

December corn closed at $3.26, up 2 ¾ cents, November Soybeans ended the day at $9.23, up 13, while wheat was up 2 ¾ last traded at $5.66. Average estimates for the stocks report are 1.185 billion bu. for corn, .126 billion bu. for beans, and 1.880 billion bu. for wheat. The weekly crop progress reports showed corn ratings steady at 74% good to excellent while beans gained a point at 72%. 12% of the national corn crop is harvest compared to last week’s 7%. Soybean harvest is 10% underway compared to 3% last week. Brazil’s ‘14/15 soybean crop is estimated to be in the 90 – 96 million metric ton range, a new record. Add that to the likely new US record crop and you get a massive world soybean production never before seen pressuring prices to the lowest levels in 5 years.
