This Week's Show

In The Field Update | Wheat Harvest

The U.S. Department of Agriculture projected a big jump in winter wheat harvest here in Nebraska over the past week. Out to western Nebraska we go for this week’s In the Field Update. We’re checking in on in dryland wheat grower Andrew Terrell.

Flood and Hail Damage

We were in the Minden area last week, where hail had destroyed thousands of acres of crops. The damage this year has not been limited to one area. Many producers have been impacted by hail and flooding. Market Journal caught up with a pair of Nebraska Extension Educators to get some advice on how producers should be responding.

Bee Bum | Honey Bee Farm

Nebraska's state insect since 1975, honeybees pollinate over 90 crops in the state, including alfalfa, sunflowers, and watermelons, which are worth $10 billion annually. We are at a honeybee farm called Bee Mum, just east of Beatrice. Kevin Monfelt is the beekeeper. He tells us more about this operation.

In the Markets | Todd Hultman

It is time to talk the markets and joining the show this week was Todd Hultman from DTN.
