On another note, talked to a friend who works as an agronomist in the Harvey area - very little planting being accomplished in that region.
Talked to a couple friends in the Kenmare area and they said the same thing. Went from really dry last year to water everywhere now...

CHICAGO (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will allow farmers who are part of the federal conservation land contracts to voluntarily terminate their contracts and plant on that land, in order to help mitigate the global food crisis, the agency said on Thursday.

The offer is open to farmers who are in the final year of their contract with the agency’s Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), USDA said on a statement published on their website.

“Participants approved for this one-time, voluntary termination will not have to repay rental payments, a flexibility implemented this year to help mitigate the global food supply challenges caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and other factors,” according to the agency’s statement.

More humans = more mouths to feed = more natural habitat destroyed. It’s obvious where things are headed

People have a misconception about what happens when they make ethanol out of corn. I was told by the head of the corn growers association in Marshall, MO that what remains after they take the ethanol out, still has 94% of the nutrients and they feed it to the hogs.
