Fungicide on Soybeans With the excellent growing conditions we have this year come other struggles. Protect your soybeans from yield robbing insects and diseases. Now is the time to spray your beans to get the most return on your investment. Contact your NCCA Agronomist to talk about your options. Ag Lime Stockpiling If you plan to spread any Lime on your farms this fall, now is the time to start thinking about getting the lime stockpiled so you know you have secured your supply. Also if you have wheat stubble fields that need lime, this would be a great opportunity to get it spread. Contact your local NCCA Agronomist to line it up.

Grain Comments Trade anticipated steady to slightly higher crop conditions from yesterday afternoon’s report and that’s exactly what they got. Soybean conditions rose 1% to 63% rated good to excellent with Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa seeing the largest improvements. Corn conditions remained steady at 70%. In the last 4 weeks, the crop has went from the 2nd worst in the past 7 years to the 3rd best and is now rated better than the 2009 crop which had a final yield of 164.4 bpa. The increased yield potential has taken its toll on prices lately, but today is turnaround Tuesday, and all 3 grains are higher on short-covering and a weaker dollar. Current support for December corn stands at $3.75 then the twin contract lows at $3.62 stand as support. November soybeans have support at $9.25 then $9. Technically, both markets remain oversold. Currently KC September wheat is up 2 at $4.91, December corn is up 1 at $3.78, and November beans are up 7 at $9.42. 8/04/15
