In June of 1990 I had the opportunity to tour Russian and Ukraine winter grain farms and visit with the farm managers. They all said that mono-cropping wheat was not good for the land and that yields could be increased by using crop rotation. My comment was that Oklahoma and Texas Panhandle farmers didn’t have a choice except to mono-crop wheat.
Weather will be the major determinate of production and price. And we know how accurate meteorologists are. Still, we listen to them every day. Weather information is essential in the planning process.
