Here’s some of what we are covering in our ag news this morning:
- Just like the situation we’ve talked about for cotton, harvest of sorghum is also running behind in our area. Sorghum Checkoff agronomist Brent Bean says, with further delay likely to result from our incoming winter weather event, issues like mold, lodging, and diminished test weight scores are potential concerns.
- Collin Peterson, the Minnesota Democrat likely to become the next chairman of the House Ag Committee, says he expects floor votes next week on the Farm Bill.
- China issued a statement yesterday expressing hopeful sentiments about future trade relations with the United States, but there was no mention of any plans to immediately escalate purchases of agricultural goods from our country.
