"No Till Product of The Year" award goes to.......Koch Agronomic Services. Dr. Greg Schwab, tells us more in this interview at Commodity Classic.
Some moisture is predicted in short run, but more above average temperatures and below average moisture continues to prevail in the future. Chance Hays of the National Weather Service explains.
Many farmers planted wheat eariler last fall to create wheat pasture. Feed yards took in record numbers of cattle in 2012 due to the extreme drought. Many cattlemen had difficulty this year with dry pastures, and a lack of hay. 2013 moisture is still below average across the great plains. These and other drought related issues continue.
