After the Report, Then What?

first_img Previous articleAg Groups Applaud Senate-Passed Immigration MeasureNext articleLivestock Groups Urge Repeal of RFS Gary Truitt SHARE Mike SilverAfter the market trades through the acreage numbers on the new crop and the stocks numbers on the old crop in the USDA reports to be released Friday morning, yield and crop condition will take center stage with most traders.  Already this week, many analysts have been downplaying the importance of the acreage figures and have been focusing on current crop conditions and weather outlooks. After the Report, Then What? Facebook Twitter Silver told HAT that disparity is going to add volatility to the market as we move through crop development and pollination. Silver, along with other analysts contacted by HAT, believe this will begin to become a factor after the market reacts to Friday’s reports.  Tom Fritz, with EFG Group, said, “On Monday traders will be saying ‘Okay, we know what the acreage is, what is the weather forecast.’”  Jim Riley, with Riley Trading, says the trade is already discounting the planted acreage number from USDA since it will reflect conditions as of the first week of June. Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News After the Report, Then What? But things are not so good in Western Corn Belt states. Mike Silver, with Kokomo Grain, says the market has not picked up on that fact yet, “There is quite a contrast between crop conditions here in the Eastern Corn Belt and what farmers are facing in western states like Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, and the Dakotas.” Silver says the market has been looking at overall crop ratings and not digging deeper into the situation, “In my opinion, the market has not picked up on the differences between the east and the west.” After the Report, Then What? By Gary Truitt – Jun 27, 2013 SHARE While Eastern Corn Belt crops have some issues including flooding and loss of nitrogen, “For the most part, the corn looks to be in very good condition,” said Darren Goebel, DuPont Pioneer agronomist. His colleague Ryan Piel says pretty much the same thing about Eastern Corn Belt soybeans, “Where the soybeans are not flooded out, the crop is coming along nicely and beginning to move from the light green to the dark green color we like to see. I think it is going to be a good year for soybeans.”last_img read more

BLOG: Invest in Pre-K, Not Prisons

first_img Budget News,  Criminal Justice Reform,  Education,  Schools That Teach,  The Blog We know at least two big things about the criminal justice system in Pennsylvania:First, we’re spending way too much money on prisons that could be spent on roads, schools or programs for our seniors and most vulnerable.Second, too many young people are getting caught up in the system before they even get a chance and far too many are likely to return after leaving.There is a way to address these problems head on. But it starts in the pre-k classroom far away from any jail, courtroom or police station.There are two paths we can take: invest in early childhood education now, or start building more prisons.I support Governor Wolf’s historic investment – $60 million or a 30.5 percent increase – in early childhood education, which is included in his 2016-2017 budget proposal.This funding increase builds upon the $60 million investment in 2015-16 to enroll about 14,000 children in Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts and the Head Start Program.Studies show that children who participate in high-quality pre-kindergarten perform better in school, graduate at higher rates and earn more throughout their working lives. And in some studies, children without pre-k were 70 percent more likely to be arrest for a violent crime by age 18.A recent report by a non-partisan law enforcement-led group called ‘Fight Crime: Invest in Kids’ estimated that Governor Wolf’s $120 million state funding increase for early childhood education will also eventually lead to $350 million in Corrections and other cost savings for the Commonwealth every year.Currently, Pennsylvania spends more than $2 billion annually—about seven percent of the state budget—to house about 50,000 inmates. Yet, only 30 percent of Pennsylvania children in families earning up to three times the federal poverty level – or $72,750 for a family of four – are enrolled in high-quality pre-k programs.It is time to change this nonsensical reality in Pennsylvania — it is time to choose to invest in pre-k now, and spend less on prisons later.
