I recently added Google Analytics to the blog and here is a snapshot of todays users. The acreage & stocks figures here were also a little higher than anticipated and it too is called modestly lower this afternoon. I pointed out on this blog last week that there has been a strong trend over the last few years for the USDA to up its final acreage figure for corn by around 1.5m acres between its March & its June report. Soybeans are likely to flirt with limit down at some point, and quite likely to end there Id guess unless corn can generate some spillover strength. Corn futures opened 6 to 8 higher; soybeans 9 to 16 higher; wheat 15 to 20 higher. Corn limit up, soybeans limit down in the same session, not sure if weve ever seen that before. Some early reports are suggesting corn could hit limit up. SOUTH DAKOTA: Heavy precipitation halted fieldwork, leaving one-third of the state with surplus soil moisture and the rest with adequate amounts, but also with reports of flooding and hail damage. USDA reports Friday morning are not expected to alter that call, but they could. Today has been really great, because it rained early this morning and we got one inch of rain! While the recent rains delayed fieldwork, the rain was needed for soil recharge. So while I do arithmetic on a regular basis, and must continue to do so, the key for me is to remember Im here to do math. All the talking animals are presented as real animals with human problems, while the protagonist is a mute bigfoot of a creature. They started talking about classic TV shows when someone asked, What was the precise moment you knew it was downhill for your favorite show? At that time, I barely understand what a blog was or why someone would want one. That will take time, but an advantage is that they will be able to obtain better, more radio-pure crystals, and thus reduce the potassium 40 background by many orders of magnitude. As well as planting progress, the USDA will issue its first crop condition report of the season after the close tonight. Dave was also keen to try out using my iMac to record some videos; so I think we did his first demo to camera (the iMac) in my small study. The Ukraine has ...
