Market Journal – July 25, 2014
This week on Market Journal…
Market Analysis – Elaine Kub, author of "Mastering the Grain Markets," analyzes current crop conditions, Brazil's soybean acreage in 2015 and the trading ranges for corn and soybeans.
Foliar Fungicide Applications – Loren Giesler, UNL Extension plant pathologist, talks about past research, sponsored by the Nebraska Soybean Board and featured at yearly Soybean Management Field Days, on foliar fungicide applications in soybeans. While past studies have shown these applications might provide a yield boost, the reason for the increase is uncertain.
Wheat Stem Sawfly Numbers – Growers in Nebraska's Panhandle saw very high numbers of wheat stem sawflies this year. Jeff Bradshaw, UNL Extension entomologist, explains where researchers are finding the sawflies.
Evaluating Fly Control – Dave Boxler, UNL Extension entomologist, says farmers and ranchers can be re-evaluating their fly control methods. Dave also talks about grasshopper numbers in his area of Nebraska.
Weather Forecast – Al Dutcher, UNL Extension state climatologist, gives his forecast for the coming week.
Next week on Market Journal… Cattle prices continue to hang around high levels. Corn prices have settled below four dollars a bushel. Those things have meant good margins for cattle feeders. Mike Briggs will join us to give us his thoughts on where those markets might go as we move into August. Keith Glewen will also be with us to talk about the 2014 Soybean Management Field Days.
