  • Watch That Forecast
    INTL FC Stone risk management consultant Matt Campbell says the August weather forecast remains top-of-mind. “I still think the soybean crop is far from made. I’m a little surprised about the weakness we’ve seen in prices the last few weeks, but there’s a lot of speculative trade coming out of the market," says Campbell. Campbell, who will be speaking at the FCStone Food Industry Forum this week in Chicago, says the price ratio between soybeans and corn is widening. “The only thing the two crops compete for is acreage. In my opinion, the need for soy acres going forward is more than it is for corn, especially when you know you’ll have wheat acres spill into both of these commodities next year as well. The need in the next 12 months on a world level is to attract more soy acres."
  • Not a Record Year, But a Good Crop
    The small grain harvest is approaching rapidly in North Dakota with reports of farmers opening winter wheat fields and in some cases, applying glyphosate on spring wheat. RRFN asked North Dakota State University Extension agronomist Joel Ransom about this year’s crop potential. “I don’t think it’s going to be quite what it was last year, but it looks pretty good," said Ransom. "There are areas of the state that look pretty dry. I think in the northeast, they’ve been dealing with too much moisture. I think that will take off the record yield we’ve been having the last few years.” Ransom says this year will be an earlier-than-normal start to the harvest season. RRFN's Harvest Hotline is sponsored, in part, by the North Dakota Mill.
  • Wheat Looking Good Near Cando
    For Cando, North Dakota farmer Bruce Lewallen, the spring wheat crop looks about as good as it has been in years. “We don’t have a whole lot of head scab. The flag leaf looks good," says Bruce Lewallen. "We’ve had perfect weather for the canola. Our soybeans and edible beans look good. We just lost some of the acres due to the drown out." Lewallen thinks he’ll be combining wheat in the first or second week of August. Lewallen is also in the process of spraying dry beans for mold.  
  • Plenty of Bushels
    Clark, South Dakota-based custom combiner Craig Wolf has finished cutting wheat in the Pierre, South Dakota area. Wolf says the crop was very good. “It was the best winter wheat harvest we’ve ever done out there. A lot of 70 bushel wheat. The protein in the winter wheat is pretty disappointing. We had some that was down to eight percent protein and there was a big discount on that. Spring wheat going to Clark has been running around 14.5 percent protein, which is normal for spring wheat.” RRFN's Harvest Hotline is sponsored, in part, by U.S. Custom Harvesters, Inc.
  • An Average Crop
    Harvest in the Onida, South Dakota area is progressing rapidly. Oahe Grain location manager Tim Luken says winter wheat harvest is beginning to wrap up. Luken expects a ho-hum spring wheat crop. “I was anticipating a lull between spring wheat and winter wheat, but, I think it’s going to go right in from one to the other," says Luken. "What we have dumped has been excellent quality, 59 to 62 pounds and  protein at 13.9 to 15.6. The top end of the yields will probably be a ho-hum 40 bushel crop.”
