Ask FarmLink: Is the U.S. Drought Over? How Late Will Seeding Be?


How’s the weather where you are? It’s a common question because, even though there’s not one thing we can do about it, it’s a topic of endless fascination for many and especially farmers. Weather risks and events work themselves into the market conversations as well, as no one can control the weather, and ultimately it’s Mother Nature who has the final say on yields and production.

In this episode of Ask Farmlink, Mike Davey, market analyst with FarmLink Marketing Solutions, highlights current conditions in the U.S. and how that may or may not be factored into market prices to date. He also explains a few factors at play in Western Canada, including frost depth, soil moisture heading into fall and whether or not we’re in for a late start to seeding.
