Dec 6 2019 - DTN Early Word Grains 12/06 06:00
DTN Early Word Grains 12/06 06:00 Grains Higher to Close the Week March corn is up 3/4 cent per bushel, January soybeans are up 4 1/4 cents, and March KC wheat is up 1/4 cent. By Tregg Cronin DTN Contributing Analyst 6:00 a.m. CME Globex: March corn is up 3/4 cent per bushel, January soybeans are up 4 1/4 cents, and March KC wheat is up 1/4 cent. CME Globex Recap: Global equities are higher around the overnight with futures pointing toward a higher open in the U.S. ahead of the monthly payroll data later Friday morning. Average trade estimates are looking for November payrolls to show a gain of 184,000 jobs during the month, up from 128,000 in October. Growth of 184,000 would compare with the six-month average of 156,000. The November unemployment rate is expected to be unchanged at 3.6%, just above September's 50-year low of 3.5%. Grain markets are mostly higher overnight, led by soybeans, as some still believe we will see a trade deal before the December 15. Without a trade deal, the U.S. is set to impose more tariffs on Chinese goods, although earlier this fall, President Trump suspended planned tariff increases to give negotiators more time. In the spirit of Christmas, there is a chance this could happen again if a breakthrough is not achieved. Harvest continues to plod along in the Northern Plains and will continue the rest of December and into 2020. OUTSIDE MARKETS: Previous closes on Thursday showed the Dow Jones Industrial Average up 28.01 at 27,677.79 and the S&P 500 up 4.67 at 3,112.76 while the 10-Year Treasury yield ended at 1.797%.

Nov 20 2018 - Baby Your Canola in the Bin 09/07
Baby your canola in the bin 09/07 -from www.aginfonet.com You can't just dump canola in the bin and expect it to stay in great shape until you're ready to sell. Canola Council of Canada agronomist David Vanthuyne says "you have to baby canola in the bin"! Vanthuyne advises growers to condition canola to safe temperature and moisture levels and then regularly monitor the binned crop for signs of mould or heating. Conditioning involves moving air through the seed to prevent spoilage that results from moisture migration and seed respiration. Vanthuyne says canola harvested much above 8% moisture must be conditioned, especially if grain temperatures are above 25 C. He says the object is to cool the seed below 15 C and lower its moisture content to 8% moisture. "Aeration and/or turning the canola can be an effective way to avoid spoilage", Vanthuyne says. But if moisture levels are above 10% to 12%, he recommends heated air drying. Growers can't drop their vigil once they've conditioned canola. Freshly harvested canola can maintain a high respiration rate for up to six weeks before becoming dormant. Vanthuyne explains that "this sweating stage is a very unstable condition for binned canola". The agronomist suggests growers monitor binned canola regularly because rapidly respiring seed produces heat and moisture, which favour storage mould growth. "Over time, the seed may become mouldy or heat damaged, and in severe cases it can ignite," he adds.
