Farmers and ranchers across the US are in the thick of the season, and watching carefully as even the slightest weather shifts move markets. What has been a hot, dry, and drought-stricken summer for many has ag commodity watchers on the edge of their seats as harvest looms, and the size and condition of the corn, soybean and wheat crops, among others, come into sharper focus.
DTN’s Team Lead for Ag Weather John Baranick joins us today to offer us an inside look at weather conditions as we move through the hottest parts of summer. He’ll talk through drought and heat conditions, the impacts of recent derechos and likelihood of more extreme weather, and how global weather conditions might be impacting US markets.
We’ll also talk hurricanes, grazing conditions, and the state of the Colorado river basin, plus hear a full and updated outlook for the coming months.
