According to weekly weather forecast, shower will be continuing in some specific production regions; such as northeast and mid Atlantic northwestern California and western portions of Washington and Oregon, which means that it will boost the harvest of wheat. Meanwhile, the harvest of soybean and corn will be hampered again in these regions. In addition, dry weather will increase the speed of harvest for soybean and corn in South, but it has a detrimental influence on growing crops. Warm and dry weather are going to be dominant in the Plains as well as in the Corn Belt, which is ideal for corn and soybean harvest. General speaking, the majority of U.S will have dry weather, which contributes to harvest. In Brazil, the main production regions for soybean are Mato Grosso, Minas Gerais, Parana and so on. And the production in these areas is threatened by extremely dry weather. The weather condition is forecasted to be good for the harvesting season, so mainly corn, wheat and soybean production will all rise.
Scattered rains will be in the Corn Belt and to the east of Interstate 35 in the U.S.thorugh Wednesday (September 28). And completely dry weather is forecasted in the Plains, Southeast, and the east of the Corn Belt, which will help harvesting. Little or no in the hard-red winter wheat area for the coming ten days is a major forecast concern. To conclude, the weather will be good for corn and soybean harvesting, which would cause the corn and soybean price to go down. But the wheat price may go up due to the dry condition.
Corn Belt - a region of the Midwestern United States where corn has been the predominant crop(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corn_Belt).
Interstate 35 - a north–south Interstate Highway in the central United States. I-35 stretches from Laredo, Texas, on the U.S.-Mexico border to Duluth, Minnesota, at Minnesota Highway 61 (London Road) and 26th Avenue East (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstate_35).
Hard Red Winter – Hard, brownish, mellow high-protein wheat used for bread, hard baked goods and as an adjunct in other flours to increase protein in pastry flour for pie crusts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheat).
We checked weather forecast for this week for Great Plains that consists of 9 states in U.S. and 3 provinces in Canada, accounting for main crop production. Starting from this week, showers will bring significant rainfall to drought happened last week. From Monday to Tuesday, cool weather would be the rule over this region. From Thursday to Friday, more stable and warm weather would dominate this region. Because corn doesn’t like dry weather, the yield will increase, whereas the price will decrease. In the meantime, wheat production will increase as well, so the price of wheat will decrease. This good weather also contributes to soybean production, price goes down.
It seems to be working well. One thing I recently noticed is that under preferences, you need to have the setting "E-mail me on replies to a thread I am watching" checked in order to have replies emailed to you even if you have that discussion page on your watch list. I hope to have this setting checked by default in the future.
I just wanted to give you a heads up that I posted a link to the January 14th session (Pathway to Student Success) yesterday and it was taken down a short while later, along with a couple of older links. I'm assuming it was removed due to the session's date. I re-listed it so that's why it's there.
Either way, it's a rather important evaluation and Lucas doesn't want to have to resend the link to attendees. If we could leave it up for a little bit that would be fantastic.
Thanks a ton.
