Cover Crop Seed If you have wheat stubble or have chopped corn now is a great time to seed a cover crop. Use this time to increase your soil's organic matter and water infiltration as well as reduce erosion. These fields then can be used as addiional grazing later in the fall. If you have livestock you can even get some good grazing out of it. Talk to your NCCA Agronomist today for different mixes and prices.
Lime- Summer Delivery Now is the time to start getting your lime hauled for your needs this fall. Most quaries now have a decent supply but as we come into fall those supplies are usually gone, making us truck more miles to a different quary. Also if you have wheat stubble, this is a perfect time to get some lime on.
Gypsoil is offering early prepay and early delivery incentives until the end of August. The sooner you prepay the better the deal. Come in today to see how you can save up to $4/ton and to learn about the benefits of Gypsoil brand gypsum.
Corn and beans closed Friday’s trading session down 4 cents. Corn was down on beginning harvest activity with yields coming in at record levels. Expect to see harvest expand and basis to be pressured as well as the board. Recent rains have delayed corn harvest a bit, but may help fill the beans out. Argentinean soybean acreage is shrinking by most estimates but total harvest production remains the same. Currently corn is down 2 sitting on support at $3.63. From there support drops to $3.50. Soybeans are currently up 7 at $10.31. With not much news to trade on wheat is getting hit pretty hard currently down 13 at $6.30
Farm Stored Corn In order to accommodate the large 2014 harvest we'll need open space in the elevators. To accomplish this the 2013 Farm stored bushels coming to town over the next 2 months you don't plan to sell may be placed on a Deferred Pricing contract. This will allow you to price the grain later but also transfers the corn ownership to the co-op allowing us to move the corn into market channels and open up space for your 2014 crop. If you have any questions please call the Seneca office at 785-336-6153.
