Farm Bureau Analysis Sees Soybeans as New Market Driver WASHINGTON - A World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report issued last week by the Agriculture Department is setting up what could be an interesting new crop market dynamic, according to economic analysis from the American Farm Bureau Federation. The WASDE report issued last week was largely unchanged on the corn and feed grain side and was generally viewed as neutral, but on the soybean side, supply estimates were reduced and U.S. exports increased to help make up for smaller South American crops, according to AFBF economist Todd Davis.

Knapp’s Service Aurora, IA 319-634-3329 ••• Grone’s Outdoor Power Grand Island, NE 308-384-5168 888-303-9506 •••

"We are looking at a situation where soybeans, rather than corn, could very well become the market leader in the U.S. grain and oilseed complex," Davis said. "Typically, corn prices usually help drive the market prices for the other grain and oilseed commodities, but given what we now know, soybeans are ready to move to the forefront." He explained that the report, coupled with prospective planting estimates from late March, indicates the United States is in rebuilding mode in regard to the nation's corn supply, as U.S. farmers are expected to plant 95.9 million acres. This represents the highest corn acreage since

1937. But soybean supplies are likely to move in the opposite direction and become much tighter next year as 2012 U.S. soybean plantings are expected to decline by more than a million acres compared to 2011. Complicating the picture has been the drought that has already cut into South American beans. In Nebraska, state corn growers expect to plant 10.3 million acres for all purposes in 2012, up 5 percent from 2011 and the largest acreage since 1933. State soybean producers intend to plant 4.7 million acres, down 4 percent from a year earlier. Continued to page 15

SOYBEANS AS NEW MARKET DRIVER Continued from page 12 Soybeans were clearly the newsmaker in this April WASDE report, Davis said. U.S. soybean ending stocks number was reduced by 25 million bushels to 250 million bushels. The decline was due to an increase in the expected amount of soybean crush and stronger U.S. exports to make up for the South American shortfalls. On the world level, soybean ending stocks for 2011-12 are projected to decline to 55.52 million metric tons. The Argentina soybean crop estimate has been reduced by 257 million bushels from the November estimate and the Brazilian soybean crop has been reduced by 330 million bushels from the November estimate " again, all due to the drought farmers in those nations worked through this growing season. U.S. corn ending stocks for the 2011-12 marketing year were unchanged from the March report. Pre-report estimates were for a reduction in stocks based on the March 30 grain stocks report. Davis said that projected marketing year ending corn stocks of 801 million bushels is a 6.3 percent stocks-to-use ratio, or roughly a 23-day supply of corn available at the end of August. Also related to corn, the WASDE report projects greater livestock feeding of wheat

instead of corn, reducing the amount of corn used for that purpose. In addition, the 2012 corn crop is being planted earlier this year, so there is greater potential of the new-crop corn being harvested in southern states that could be fed in August. Davis said that "would provide some cushion for the tight 2011-12 corn balance sheet." In Nebraska, 10 percent of the state's wheat crop is jointed, well ahead of the fiveyear average of 1 percent. The wheat crop is reported to be 60 percent good or excellent, well ahead of last year's 35 percent good or excellent. Nebraska's winter wheat seedings for the 2012 crop are expected to total 1.4 million acres, according to USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service, Nebraska Field Office. Seedings are down 8 percent, or 120,000 acres, from last year and the smallest winter wheat planted acreage since records began in 1909. At the world level, corn ending stocks for the 2011-12 marketing year will be the tightest since the 2006-07 marketing year, with a stocks-to-use ratio of 14.2 percent, which was the tightest ending corn inventory in recent history, according to Davis.

• Reduces water usage. • Promotes plant growth. • Leaches harmful salts from root zone. • Conditions soil for optimum percolation. • Increases quantity and quality of harvest. • Does not deplete soil of beneficial microbes. • Conditions water naturally. Cleans and maintains drip lines. • Provides a rapid return on your investment.

Experiments on the rooting propagation have found plants irrigated with FREFLOTM conditioned water develop far faster with much healthier root systems than those irrigated with non-treated water. You might be asking yourself, have these benefits of water conservation, increased yields, the leaching of harmful salts, and higher quality crops been experienced on any other crops? In a word, yes, on the following crops, to give you a few examples:

Watermelon • Grapes • Alfalfa • Garlic • Walnuts • Sweet Potatoes • Onions • Tomatoes • Strawberries • Cantaloupe • Broccoli + Many More If you garden, or farm, and care about QUALITY, you will find brix (sugar content) values vital. As a general rule of thumb, 12, or better brix readings confer reasonable plant pest immunity. This is true of both fruit and leaf readings. www.crossroads.ws/brixbook/BBook.htm

Krall Follows Father’s Advice, Gains International Success By Sandra Hansen, The Scottsbluff Star-Herald LINGLE, Wyo. -- There are no flashing lights to draw attention to the University of Wyoming James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center southwest of Lingle, but the research that goes on there is worthy of some special attention. Dr. James M. Krall and his fellow scientists take advantage of the nearly 1,000 acres of dryland, irrigated, rangeland and organic research fields to improve the lives of animals and humans. Krall, who has been with UW for 34 years, will be leaving in April, retiring after a rewarding career as a professor of plant science in the UW College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. A native of Montana, and graduate of Montana State University, Krall earned his master's degree at Kansas State University, and did his graduate work at the University of Wyoming in 1976-79. He worked at the University of Nevada- Reno until 1984, when he returned to do research at UW, and stayed with a program that afforded him opportunities to expand his interests “I was inspired by my dad, ----- , who was a professor at MSU, an agronomist on the

research center,” Krall said, sitting at his desk in the UW SAREC administration building. "I believe that everybody, to some degree, out of respect for their father, will follow in his foot steps. It was an easy decision to follow his path. "He told me early on that it's easy to be a jack of all trades and master of none," Krall said of his father's advice. "Over my career l've pretty well done that. But I’ve learned a little about a lot, and a lot about a little. I don’t know about master." Krall said he is especially proud of the fact that he has had articles published in 19 scientific journals, on subjects such as agronomy, weed science, nematode control, ag economics, and even animal science. "I'm lucky to have worked in such a group of people who have included professionals, producers and university scientists," Krall said, leaning back in his office chair, looking back in time. Krall said that one reason he wanted to work at UW was the quality of people already there, and it has worked out to his benefit. He cites Dr. Ron Delaney, his advisor, and Steve Miller, weed scientist and retired director of ag extension stations, and other scientists Dave Koch and Fred Gray at UW, as well as David Baltensperger, formerly of the University of Nebraska UNL Panhandle Research and Extension Center, now with Texas A&M, and other UNL scientists, Drew Lyon, Gary Hergert and Dipak Santra, among many, many other collaborators, Krall is also enthused about the new crop of scientists emerging in the field of research. Among them are Anwar Islam and Andrew Kniss, both at UW. He expects the university will be as supportive of the up and coming generation as it was of him. "One really neat thing was that the University of Wyoming afforded me with opportunities to travel internationally," Krall said. Connections he made in Australia in the 1990s have developed into not only good research collaborators, but also good friends. He notes that Roy Latta, an agronomist he met in Australia in 1993, has become a close friend, forming a relationship that now includes families and personal visits. "It's a good outgrowth of our collaboration," Krall said. Their collaboration has lead to success in Krall's professional life, as well, resulting in two variety releases that will beneContinued to page 30

Farmers in N. Dakota, Minnesota Create Farming App BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ Two farmers have developed a smartphone application to help manage their farms even while they're still sitting on their tractors. Jacob Fannik of Max, N.D., and Ryan Raguse of Wheaton, Minn., developed Virtual Farm Manager to keep notes, store yield records and sync information with web accounts for computer access. ``The spark behind this came from growing up on a farm,'' Fannik, who grew up on 2,000 acres about 80 miles north of Bismarck, told the Bismarck Tribune. ``A farmer has to get in and out of the tractor, get into the house, make a bunch of calls, be so many places at once and still be behind the wheel of a tractor.'' Fannik and Raguse said farmers are increasingly using smartphone technology to manage their land. Their app uses the phone's GPS to track and map equipment as it goes up and down fields planting seeds or spreading fertilizer. It also can let multiple workers simultaneously view activity on a field. Raguse said there are many variations of this management technology but he doesn't

Judge Throws Out Water Permit for South Dakota Dairy ALEXANDRIA, S.D. (AP) _ A judge threw out a state board's decision to give a water permit to a large new dairy operation in southeastern South Dakota. The proposed Hanson County Dairy would use an estimated 720,000 gallons of water a day. A number of county residents are protesting the operation. Judge Sean O'Brien says South Dakota's Water Management Board didn't follow state law when it granted the permit. He says the board didn't consider whether the local aquifer could supply the heavy water demand. Now the water board will have to look at the issue again, or appeal O'Brien's ruling to the South Dakota Supreme Court. An attorney for a citizens' group that opposes the dairy praised O'Brien's ruling Wednesday.

Black Hills Bighorn Sheep Set for Recovery CUSTER, S.D. (AP) _ Wildlife officials in the Black Hills say the population of bighorn sheep is recovering after a seven-year die off. KOTA television reports that a deadly strain of pneumonia since 2005 depleted their numbers by 75 percent throughout the region. The numbers fell from 200 to just 28, but Custer state park resource manager Gary Brundige says a recovery is on the horizon. The park survived some lambs through the year, and two are ewes that will add to the breeding population. The park will also be looking across the Rocky Mountains west to find more sheep as early as next winter to get the numbers up. Brundige says it often takes up to 11 years for herds to recover from the deadly strain of pneumonia.

HUGOTON, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Dairy Ingredients plans to construct a new production facility in southwestern Kansas, investing $20 million and creating 60 jobs within two years. Officials with the company announced their plans Monday during an event in Hugoton, where the plant will be built. The project will also create about 150 temporary construction jobs. The plant will process some 1 million pounds of milk per day to produce dairy products when it opens later this year. It will expand to 2.5 million pounds by the end of 2013. Expansion at the plant will allow for cheese production and other dry milk ingredients. Kansas Dairy Ingredients is based in Missouri but intends to move its business operations to Kansas City, Kan. Kansas officials said the plant would boost the state's dairy industry.

know of any that allow farmers to access it on a cellphone. ``Rather than running around with notebooks all the time, the farmer can just send it back to the computer,'' he said. The app is set for an April 15 release for Android phones. The newspaper reports that an iPhone version will follow. The cost will be $65 a month, after an introductory rate.

KRALL FOLLOWS FATHER’S ADVICE, GAINS INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS Continued from page 22 fit forage and livestock producers in the future. A field pea, released in 2003 (along with the University of Nebraska) as "Forager" pea, is gaining popularity as a livestock feed, while the "Laramie" medic, an annual clover, is sure to secure a place in crop rotations and livestock feed sources. "I'm proud of what we've accomplished," Krall said. "Now there's a greater need than before for winter annuals." Krall bases his beliefs on the cropping system and development that will be needed in order to deal with issues created by climate change. Noting 81-degree temperatures in March, Krall said it seems apparent that the climate is changing. "There is a real opportunity in this region to grow more winter annual crops," he predicted. So far, UNL and UW have been on the leading edge of researching crops that will become more valuable and suited to this region. According to Krall, seven wheat varieties have been developed with the collaboration of UNL's Steve Baenziger, and one winter canola, after collaborating with Kansas State University. Medics, such as "Laramie," can be planted and left to their own devices. Their spiky seed pods resemble round sand burrs/goat heads. They contain 5-6 seeds that after being released by the opening pod, come to life at different times, and will reseed themselves over a span of about five years. In Australia, where the crop is very popular, sheep graze it, and in the process, their hooves work the seed into the soil. Krall said the crop is promising as a part of a wheat rotation. Wheat helps control weeds in the medic and the ground cover crop enriches the soil by fixing nitrogen. Some varieties could be developed to produce some hay, Krall believes. The winter wheat ground benefits from the ground coverage that holds moisture, and also for the nitrogen fixing capabilities. The potential for forage peas is also gaining support, according to Krall. "Robin Gross at the University of Wyoming has done a lot of work on the peas," Krall said. "We hope to have a couple more varieties ready for release in a couple of years. That's exciting." Krall said he hopes to continue in an emeritus status to work around SAREC. "I

James (Jim) Krall is all smiles as he contemplates retirement. He will vacate his office at the University of Wyoming James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center this month, concluding 34 years with the state’s only four-year university. hope the University continues to work on these varieties, and I'd like to see them finished," he said. According to Krall, he has been debating retirement for some time, partly due to health issues, but he asks himself, "When am I going to to stop this? It‘s been a great ride, and if I get emeritus status, maybe I can continue to work out here, but it's going to depend on their resources." "Maybe I can keep this seat warm for my replacement," he mused with a big smile. His eventual move into retirement included removing himself as director of research at SAREC last fall. One of the big changes in Krall's career was the move from the Torrington Extension and Research Center on the west edge of town to SAREC in nearly 10 years ago. Krall said it was a good move, though disruptive at the time. The new properties made it possible to consolidate

research going on at Archer and Torrington, Wyo. It includes dryland, rangeland, and irrigated land. It also increased the opportunities to do additional research. One of those is organic farming and integrated livestock production. Krall said the new location, in addition to the cropping locations, includes administration facilities, machine and equipment storage, and state of the art livestock pens for research, as well as a family style dorm residence so students and research personnel can stay longer than one day when they come from Laramie. "That is what we hoped would happen," Krall said. ’We wanted to attract more faculty to come here. It’s been a good value in that respect." In addition to continued work on improving crops and cropping systems, Krall expects the future will hold more work on livestock research, including sheep. He said agronomy will also expand, as efforts are made to improve and increase forage and feed options. Thinking back over his career, Krall laughed quietly and said, "One thing I can say is, half the trials I've worked on in my career have failed." But then he explained that that is what research is all about. Find out what works and what doesn't. "Even so, we’re doing ok out here. It's a big study, and in 06-07-08, we didn’t have any moisture. It was a disaster." His advice for young scientists coming on board, is to get recognized with published articles and get a graduate student to work with you, but not on a dryland project, he added with a laugh. "But it's real life experience. There's no perfect crop or system." Although real life doesn’t always serve up the desired results, it takes a special person to deal with the many people and circumstances that touch our lives. According to Jim Freeburn, director of operations at SAREC, Krall is one of those people. “I’ve really enjoyed working with that guy,” Freeburn said. “He’s a genuinely nice and caring person, and very good to get along with. He’s worked on a lot of fronts, and has a breadth of experience as a general agronomist. It’s possible we won’t see anyone like him again.”
