Today's WASDE reports shocked the corn and soybean markets. Yield estimates of 168.8 bu. for corn and 46.9 bu. for soybeans. Do you agree?

The number of replant acres will be "staggering" or just "so-so." Wager a guess which? http://www.agweb.com/article/the-number-of-prevent-plant-acres--staggering-or-so-so-NAA-ben-potter/
As of mid-June, a significant portion of the 2015 crop is still not in the ground. But those acres will be planted eventually … right?

The EPA says the Waters of the U.S. rule protects clean water and respects agriculture. See what else administrator Gina McCarthy had to say.

http://www.agweb.com/article/mccarthy-new-rule-protects-clean-water-while-respecting-agriculture-NAA-guest-editor-NAA-agweb-guest-editor/
EPA and the Army finalized a rule under the Clean Water Act today. The New rule does not create any new permitting requirements, maintains all previous exemptions and exclusions.

They turned this #drone into a functional scarecrow to chase off birds ravaging the California pistachio crop. 
At Monarch Inc., drones aren't always just passive observers, collecting data. Sometimes, they like to get in on the action, too.

Drones are giving aerial surveying an "altitude adjustment." http://www.agweb.com/article/mat-takes-aerial-surveying-to-new-heights-NAA-chris-bennett/ 
Midwest Aerial Technologies (MAT) is off the ground as an aerial surveying company focusing on multiple industries across the United States. Through manned aircraft and drones, MAT surveys land for any company or producer that needs 2D or 3D photogrammetry and imagery.

This advice comes from a dairy specialist. But really, ANY farmer could benefit from asking the following 6 questions before investing in a piece of new technology. 
You’re making a huge investment;demand answers before signing the purchase agreement.

Chances are you don't grow grapes/raisins, but this Supreme Court case could have big implications for EVERY American farmer. http://www.agweb.com/article/supreme-court-rules-for-raisin-farmers-NAA-associated-press/
The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the government can't force raisin farmers to give up part of their annual crop for less than it's worth, a victory for conservative groups that hailed the decision as a win for private property rights.

Next time you buy food, consider this – only 10.5% comes from farm production costs. http://www.agweb.com/article/farm-production-just-a-fraction-of-us-food-dollar-NAA-ben-potter/ … 
USDA Economic Research Service (ERS) calculates the value added (or “cost contributions”) to the U.S. food dollar from 12 industry groups in the food supply chain.
