In this Night Edition, catch up on the most up-to-date news about the planting season, avian influenza, and the supply of late-product balers.

Crop Development

In the USDA Crop Development report produced right now, info demonstrates corn and soybeans catching up to the 5-yr averages.

Corn is reportedly planted at 86%, when compared with 87% for the past five-calendar year normal 61% has emerged as opposed with 68% for the preceding five-calendar year regular.

Any and all late-model used tools is bringing exceptionally solid (if not historically substantial) rates these times, he writes.

Very well-equipped round balers are undoubtedly having fun with steady values, but not outlandish selling prices such as we are observing for tractors brings together and tillage tools, for case in point.
