I encourage you to view the archived version of our May 23rd Delayed Corn & Soybean Planting Decisions webinar featuring Bob Nielsen and Shaun Casteel from Purdue Agronomy along with Michael Langemeier and me from the Center for Commercial Agriculture.
The link below provides access to the recorded webinar via our Archived Webinars page, as well as the slides for download. Please make sure you download the corrected version of the slides we’ve posted on our website. The slides used during the video incorrectly referenced June 30 as RMA’s end of the late planting period for corn in Indiana. The correct date for the end of the late planting period is actually June 25. This affected several calculations throughout our presentation and we’ve corrected all of those calculations in the slide deck posted on our website.
Additionally, at the beginning of the video, we covered USDA’s announcement yesterday regarding the 2019 support program for farmers related to trade disruption. There are several aspects of the program that are ambiguous and we are seeking clarification regarding how the program will be implemented, particularly as it relates to acreage that is designated as prevented planting. When that information becomes available, we will make it available on our website.
Thanks for your help in getting this information out to Indiana farmers. If you have any questions, please let me know.
