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.
Corn had a good trading session yesterday closing the day up 5 ¾ in the December contract. Corn was supported by the wheat yesterday that finished up 6 ¾ on news of heightened conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Soybeans also had a good day finishing up 5 in the November contract. The idea of too much rain is starting to creep into the minds of some traders with the possibility of localized flooding in portions of the Midwest. The weekly export sales report came out yesterday. New crop corn sales totaled 695,000 tonnes while soybeans and wheat came in at 1,290,000 tonnes and 403,000 tonnes respectively. All were in the top half of the trade estimates. The trade is keeping their eyes on US/Ukraine relations which will set the tone for next week.
Farm Stored Corn In order to accommodate the large 2014 harvest we'll need open space in the elevators. To accomplish this the 2013 Farm stored bushels coming to town over the next 2 months you don't plan to sell may be placed on a Deferred Pricing contract. This will allow you to price the grain later but also transfers the corn ownership to the co-op allowing us to move the corn into market channels and open up space for your 2014 crop. If you have any questions please call the Seneca office at 785-336-6153.
Farm Stored Corn I hear of some corn being harvested in Kansas already so the window for end users paying a premium for old crop corn is coming to a close quickly. The amounts needed are limited and shipment time is important. Call Charles or Trevor at 785-336-6153 for details.
A swath of moderate to locally heavy rain is in store for the southern and eastern Midwest Tuesday, focusing on the Missouri Bootheel and Ohio Valley. We'll see a drier trend in the remainder of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions. Temperatures will be mild in northern and central areas, and hot in the southern sections. This combination is mostly favorable for crops; however, recently-hot conditions are diminishing soil moisture in the Southern Plains for wheat planting. » More DTN Weather Commentary
