Mike Silver Analyzes USDA May Report and the Win for Soybeans

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Mike Silver Analyzes USDA May Report and the Win for Soybeans By Andy Eubank – May 10, 2018 Mike Silver Analyzes USDA May Report and the Win for Soybeans SHARE Facebook Twitter Mike Silver Analyzes USDA May Report and the Win for SoybeansThe May World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates from the Department of Agriculture projects smaller corn and soybean crops this year. The corn crop is projected at 14.0 billion bushels, down from last year with a lower forecast area and yield. The yield projection of 174.0 bushels per acre is based on a weather-adjusted trend assuming normal planting progress and summer growing season weather. The season-average farm price for corn is projected at $3.30 to $4.30 per bushel, up 40 cents at the midpoint from 2017/18.Meanwhile, the U.S. soybean crop is projected at 4.2 billion bushels, down 112 million from last year’s record crop on lower acres and lower yield projections. The 2018/19 U.S. season-average soybean price range is forecast at $8.75 to $11.25 per bushel compared with $9.35 per bushel in 2017/18.USDA upped the 2018/19 U.S. wheat crop five percent at a projected 1.8 billion bushels on higher acres and a slightly higher yield. However, winter wheat yields are below average in the drought-affected states of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The season-average farm price is projected at a range of $4.50 to $5.50 per bushel.Full analysis is here in the HAT Newsmaker Podcast with @MikeSilverSr of Kokomo Grain.

Some students said, despite the weather they will stay for their last game.Senior Sarah Hauke said having this as the last game is bittersweet.“I wish it was a little better weather,” Hauke said. “But it’s not a Horned Frog game if there is no adversity.”Saturday’s game against Kansas State is not only the last game of this regular season, but also senior day.The seniors were recognized during the pre-game ceremony by being announced and escorted one-by-one to their families on the field.Photo credit: TCU staff photographer Sam Bruton  Twitter Kacey Bowenhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kacey-bowen/ Kacey is a junior journalism major from Friendswood, Texas.

More than 100 websites, including the video-sharing site YouTube, the blog platform Blogspot and the email service Hotmail, are now inaccessible.“We call on the authorities to explain what is going on,” the press freedom organisation said. “The number of websites rendered inaccessible doubled in two weeks. We do not believe all this suddenly happened for technical reasons as a common feature of all these sites is that they contained criticism of the government. Under the press code, a court order is required to close down a website. We therefore regard this as arbitrary and unwarranted censorship.”In all, nearly 110 websites are known to be blocked. The latest site to be blocked was Amazon.com on 30 November. When contacted by Reporters Without Borders, the Syria Computer Society, one of the country’s main ISPs, said the Internet was not censored that these problems originated in the computers of the individual Internet users.The authorities have been blocking access to the social networking service Facebook on Syria’s Internet servers since 19 November without giving any explanation. The Syrian human rights commission’s site is also blocked, as is another independent human rights monitoring site.Elaph.com, a news website that is very popular in the Arab world (with around 1.5 million visits a day), is also inaccessible. It has also been censored in Saudi Arabia since May 2006 without any explanation being provided by the Saudi authorities. A Syrian journalist, Habib Saleh, spent 27 months in prison for writing articles for Elaph.com.Syria has become an Internet “black hole” since Bashar al-Assad succeeded his father as president. Access to opposition online publications is systematically blocked, while dissidents and independent journalists are hounded mercilessly when they post articles on the Internet. The authorities used a filtering system called “Thundercache” to control online content, as well as to filter for viruses and prevent pirating of video files.

Michigan task force set to make dam safety recommendations

first_imgLANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan group that has delayed safety recommendations after two dams failed last year, destroying 150 houses and causing over $200 million damage in Midland County. The Michigan Dam Safety Task Force drafted 86 recommendations, including increased monitoring and other risk mitigation efforts. They will revise some of the language later in the week to send to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and state regulators. Recommendations also must be approved by the Legislature. The failure of the Edenville Dam, which led to the failure of the Sanford dam and the flooding, had a history of violating safety regulations. The flooding forced the evacuation of 10,000 people.last_img
