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.

Mobile apps make farmers' lives incrementally easier. Here are seven recent examples.
At their finest, apps are intended to make different aspects of farming a little bit easier – perhaps by streamlining a process or just making some part of farming and ranching less clunky.

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.

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.

As the flagship of Farm Journal Media, Farm Journal has a rich history spanning 133 years of service to U.S. agriculture, quality journalism and innovations in circulation technology.
