Corn closed higher Friday after the USDA report at 11:00 am. Traders termed the report maybe slightly friendly. The market did not focus on the USDA numbers very long before it went back to the weather
Thursday afternoon I got out to the farm about 4:00 and worked over my pea field. The sun was beginning to set when I took this picture. It sure was peaceful out at the farm. Birds Eye Foods finished harvesting the peas about 8:30 Wednesday morning
I took this picture of one of my bean fields on Sunday July5th. After being gone for a week I was anxious to get out to the farm and see the crops. I was very pleased with the beans. We have been fortunate that the really heavy rains have missed us so we do not have drowned out spots in the field
Corn managed to close slightly higher today which was a major victory given all the negative news from the outside markets. The Greece debt crisis, the China stock market melting down concerns about all United Airlines planes being grounded and the stock market shutting down
This is the result of the heavy rains much of our listening area has received recently. This has been a very common sight the last 3 years. It is very frustrating to see this but you have to remember we don't control the weather
Corn closed only 1 to 3 cents lower today which was well off the lows. The outside markets had a negative influence with the dollar higher and continued concerns about the economy in China and the Greece debt crisis
This morning John Dvorak will be stopping by KDHL studios for our AM Minnesota program. I really enjoy hosting the program looking forward to the Rice County Fair. It's hard to believe it will be here in a couple weeks
Corn began the day after the big 4th of July weekend under pressure but did close well off the lows of the day. Traders seemed to be concerned about the Greece debt crisis. However the Greece economy is about 2 percent of the European economy so in the big picture it doesn't really matter what happens in Greece
On Saturday, June 26, one week before the Fourth of July, I took a picture of corn up to my chest. Last week I was in Michigan moving our daughter, Laura, out to graduate school. We drove home on the Fourth of July
Last Saturday I went out to the farm to check the crops and get the planter ready to plant beans. My peas should be harvested around the fifth of July and, weather permitting, I am going to plant beans and hope for the best
