  • Late-summer heat expands across the Midwest
    by Greg Soulje on September 20, 2017 at 10:24 pm

       Across the Corn Belt, showers and thunderstorms are confined to the upper Great Lakes region. Elsewhere, warm weather is promoting the maturation of developmentally delayed corn and soybeans. On the Plains, late-season warmth across the southern half of the region continues to promote summer crop maturation and harvesting. Wednesday’s high temperatures should again approach or reach 100° across portions of the southern Plains. In contrast, cool air is spreading across the northern High Plains.

  • AFBF: Cash rents assessment
    by Julie Harker on September 20, 2017 at 9:26 pm

    Cash rents are starting to come down on non-irrigated U.S. crop land – after record highs in 2015. But, American Farm Bureau’s director of market intelligence, John Newton, says there’s something holding those values in place, “It hasn’t come down as quick because land prices, the value of farm real estate, continues to be an attractive investment at these lower interest rates that we have today. So, we haven’t seen the value of farmland or cash rents come down near as much as one would expect with the lower commodity prices.” Irrigated cropland values, he tells Brownfield Ag News, remain high…and so do highly productive land values – and cash rents – in some key Midwest states, “Illinois and parts of Iowa, there in the corn belt, do have the highest non-irrigated cash rents in the country – and that reflects the productivity of that good soil – there in central Illinois and parts of Iowa – where we often see the highest average corn and soybean yields in the country.” At some point, Newton tells Brownfield, interest rates will have to go up, making land a less attractive investment.

  • Cattle futures jump on cash expectations
    by Meghan Grebner on September 20, 2017 at 9:01 pm

    At the Chicago Mercantile Exchange cattle futures closed sharply higher on continued optimism of higher cash trade.  After recent gains, without a lot of fundamental backing contracts could be overbought.  October live cattle closed $2.97 higher at $110.95 and December live cattle closed $2.85 higher at $116.25.  September feeder cattle closed $2.40 higher at $153.97 and October feeder cattle closed $4.47 higher at $157.27. Direct cash cattle trade was fairly quiet this afternoon all of the day’s sales came from this morning’s Fed Cattle Exchange Auction.  Continue reading Cattle futures jump on cash expectations at Brownfield Ag News.     &nbs […]

  • White mold historically bad in southeast Minnesota
    by Mark Dorenkamp on September 20, 2017 at 8:48 pm

    A southeast Minnesota farmer says white mold in soybeans is as bad as he’s ever seen. Michael Petefish grows corn and soybeans near Claremont, in a region where the plant disease has been especially common. “This area has a lot of 20 inch rows.  It seems like those (fields) are experiencing a little bit worse white mold.  Guys that got in early (and planted) narrower rows, (their soybeans) canopied sooner.  Continue reading White mold historically bad in southeast Minnesota at Brownfield Ag News.     &nbs […]
