Farmers Produce Record Corn, Soybean Crops

January 13, 2010

Just wanted to share this link from a story I wrote for the Monsanto blog, Beyond the Rows. I mention it in the post, but I will restate it here: if you have 5-10 minutes, check out the final dozen pages or so of the USDA annual crop production report. It gives a great overview of the month-by-month weather conditions in each region and how each crop fared in 2009. I think it really shows how many challenges farmers across the country faced last year.

My Ag Education Continues–A Trip to the Grain Elevator

January 5, 2010

I contributed this post for the Monsanto company blog, “Beyond the Rows,” today, so I thought I’d share it on my personal blog as well.

I highly recommend visiting a grain elevator for about an hour. It’s a pretty cool sight. I hope the photos tell the story well enough for you in case you can’t make it though!
