Kidder County School unveils $450,000 ag expansion By Jenny Schlecht Agweek Staff Writer

STEELE, N.D. — When Kidder County, N.D., merged its two high schools for this school year, there was one major hitch: the county school district’s ag program had always been based at Tappen High School. All of the students now go to Steele High School. Steele had a shop, but not the kind of facility that would house all of the agriculture and vocational education offerings. To solve the problem, the district put up a $450,000 agriculture education expansion that they hope will continue to attract more students to the program and prepare students for careers in agriculture for years to come. It consists of a roomy shop, a self-contained classroom,a balcony storage space and a greenhouse work space. A new greenhouse will be coming soon. The school, which educates students from across the county that spans more square miles than the state of Rhode Island, on April 9 held an open house to show the community the new facility prior to Kidder County FFA’s annual banquet. Superintendent Rick Diegel said funding for the facility came out of the district’s building and general funds. Education always has a cost, whether for textbooks or facilities, and the school board and community felt like having an adequate place for agriculture education was worth the price tag, he said. ”We felt like this was a high enough need that it was very much worth doing,” he said. The cost breakdown was about $350,000 for the building itself and about $100,000 for the components inside, Diegel explained. He added that a ventilation system for the welding stalls, which will filter the air and return it to the building rather than just suck it out, will result in long-term savings from heating costs. Agriculture education teacher Pete Martin said his program has been in the new building since January. Some of the classes have helped construct things like tool storage cabinets and welding bays. Martin said he has some students who are in the ag facility five hours of the day — taking three classes from him and coming in on their free time to help out. “I think they really enjoy it,” he said. He’s seen more people sign up for classes, in part, he believes, because students no longer have to travel to Tappen, located 14 miles away, to attend. 2 Monday, April 16, 2018 / AGWEEK

While construction was going on, ag classes were held in the Steele school’s old shop. Allison Roth, a sophomore student who formerly went to school in Tappen, said the temporary classroom situation, moving into and finishing the new facility and merging two schools have meant a “big adjustment” for students. But the new facility has been “definitely an upgrade.” “It is really amazing to see how it’s come along,” she said. Roth, the FFA chapter’s reporter, sees the facility as a way to unite the two schools, get a more diversified FFA membership and grow the ag education program. Junior Austin Schmidt, who also used to go to Tappen, said moving the students and the ag program to Steele seems to have created some

buzz in Steele that never happened in the past. “I thought our shop over in Tappen was pretty nice, but to get this all built just allows us to do so much more than we could there and gives us so much more space,” he said. Schmidt, the FFA vice president, is in the welding class that helped construct the welding stalls. Martin said the class welded all the wall dividers between stalls, as well as putting together chairs and tables to make one stand, an idea they got from Lynnes Welding in Bismarck and Fargo. Students also have built a storage room next to the welding bays, Martin added. Building the welding bays was a “hectic” process, Schmidt said, but one that has built excitement about the class. He’s heard of more

people signing up for it for next year, and by joining the welding class, students also will have the opportunity to join FFA. Diegel said Kidder County’s agriculture education classes, along with its technology and engineering education program, give the school unique offerings to get students ready for life after high school. Few schools in the state offer both programs, with only two rural schools offering both, confirmed Aaron Anderson, agriculture education supervisor in the North Dakota Department of Career and Technical Education. “We have a great school. We offer a lot of different programs that our kids are able to take and it will really prepare them for their post high school careers,” Diegel said.





Just because you don’t like the news doesn’t mean it’s fake By Agweek Editorial Board You might not read it on the printed pages of Agweek as often as we see it written to us in social media, but it’s a trend for readers or viewers to call us and other news outlets “fake news” when they disagree with reporting or with the opinions of columnists. We mostly ignore the comments and carry on with our daily jobs, knowing thousands are looking for a trusted source of ag news. This issue of “fake news” has nothing to do with any of the journalism outlets you likely frequent. In recent years, outlets have sprouted up online that write outright lies, with no connection to reality. Those sources sought to sow discontent, to make people doubt everything and rely on their own worst instincts. The efforts of those behind actual “fake news” have put lives in danger and, perhaps just as dangerously, have made people doubt everyone and everything. Some things in agriculture are simply facts, regardless of whether you like them. It’s not “fake news” when grain prices stumble. It’s not “fake news” when droughts or blizzards strike. It’s not “fake news” when major commodity groups criticize a government policy. When facts are important to agriculture, we report them. At Agweek, we stand behind the work we do, as well as the work of our news partners. We can, to borrow from math class and “show our work.” Our sources are real. Our work is real. Our news is real. Reporters quote real people — responsible people who have important perspectives or information to share. We have a team of people to ensure we’re meeting our responsibilities. We work to deliver timely, up-to-date agriculture news and to share columns with individual writers’ opinions and submitted letters to the editor. Those opinions are clearly labeled as such so readers and viewers don’t confuse them with news. Are you always going to like what you read in our pages or see on our show? Absolutely not. If you did, we wouldn’t be doing our jobs. We, as humans, all have biases. It’s human nature to fight what doesn’t fit our worldview. But that which doesn’t fit with what we think we know isn’t “fake.” When something is presented with verifiable sources and we dismiss it as “fake” just because we don’t like the conclusions, we’re shutting ourselves off from learning anything new or expanding our points of view. Go beyond reading headlines. Read news articles critically, from top to bottom. Don’t judge what you’re reading; try to learn from it. Whenever you read news, from any source, that doesn’t strike you as correct, consider your own biases. Are you willing to consider that your preconceived notions might be incorrect? If you’re a Democrat, you might not like to read an analysis that says a Democrat’s plan won’t work. If you’re a Republican farmer who considers yourself a supporter of the president of the United States, you might not like to hear that some of his policies appear to be harmful to agriculture.

We hear the concerns you have about issues facing your livelihood and industry. Even if you’re not actively working in agriculture, you care about food production and where food comes from. You might have a connection to agriculture and care about its future. Your feedback, thoughts and diverse opinions are welcome. Send your thoughts on ag issues to as letters to the editor by Tuesday at 12 p.m. Central each week. Have a story idea or news tip? Contact any of our Agweek staff or email Yes, there is “fake news” out there. But we don’t peddle in it. We and other journalists sometimes make mistakes or allow our own perspectives to cloud our reporting. When that happens, by all means, call us out. But anyone who labels anything they don’t want to hear or don’t want to believe as “fake news” is contributing to a societal problem. We are never going to write propaganda. We won’t write something just to make people happy. We subscribe to no particular political party or way of thinking. We are going to report the news as it happens, to the best of our abilities. And there’s nothing fake about that. We hope most fair-minded readers will agree that Agweek is not “fake news.” We don’t always bring good news about agriculture, but it’s relevant, accurate and up-to-date information from across the region and nation. We are proud to be part of agriculture. It’s our passion and livelihood to deliver ag news to you. Thank you for reading, watching and sharing your feedback.

MSU Extension plant pathologist receives Fulbright Fellowship BOZEMAN, Mont. — A Montana State University expert on plant diseases

has received a Fulbright Fellowship to Australia where she will focus on spore trapping, a new area of research that could benefit Montana growers. Mary Burrows is a professor in the department of plant sciences and plant pathology in the college of agriculture at MSU, a plant pathology specialist for MSU Extension, director of the Schutter Diagnostic Lab and head of Montana’s Integrated Pest Management Program. The Fulbright Fellowship will allow her to work at the South Australian Research and Development Institute in Adelaide from January 2019 to April 2019. From what she learns in Australia, Burrows is interested in seeing if it would be feasible to set up spore traps in Montana. She plans to test five major categories of spore traps, initially focusing on the spore that causes Ascochyta blight. Those spores can be released from infected stubble if early spring rains occur.

Ag legislators have farm bill questions, too By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. agriculturalists wonder when the next farm bill will be approved and exactly what will be in it. Pat Roberts, Debbie Stabenow and Collin Peterson — who should be in the best position to know those answers — say they’re wondering, too. The three Congressional ag leaders, all farm bill veterans, met April 10 on Capitol Hill with members of the North American Agricultural Journalists. The group, which represents U.S. and Canadian ag journalists, held its annual convention April 9-10 in Washington, D.C. Roberts, a Kansas Republican, is chairman of the U.S. Senate Ag Committee. Stabenow, a Michigan Democrat, is ranking Democrat on the Senate Ag Committee. Peterson, a Democrat who represents a sprawling ag-heavy district in northwest Minnesota, is ranking Democrat on the House Ag Committee. Michael Conaway, a Texas Republican and chairman of the House Ag Committee, was invited to meet with the ag journalists, but he was traveling and unable to attend, his staff said.

Jonathan Knutson/Agweek Rep. Collin Peterson on April 10 addresses members of the North American Agricultural Journalists in Washington, D.C.

Roberts, Stabenow and Peterson have a long history of working together to write and pass farm bills, the centerpiece of the federal government’s food and agriculture policy. The existing farm bill, approved in 2014, expires this fall and a new one will be needed. Roberts and Stabenow each said they’re confident the Senate can and will approve a farm bill eventually.

“I’m anxious to get this done and moving in the Senate,” Stabenow said. Poor farm prices and profitability increase the need “for us to get down and do our business on the farm side,” Roberts said. But Stabenow and Roberts said the House, not the Senate, is the stumbling block — a point made even more strongly by Peterson. He continued his ongoing criticism of a House Republican effort to expand work

requirements for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. Many Democrats, both in the House and Senate, won’t support a new farm bill that includes expanded requirements, which threatens the longstanding urban-rural coalition that supports the farm bill, Peterson said. Asked whether the House will approve its farm bill version that contains the controversial requirement, Peterson said, “I’m skeptical they (House Republicans) can do it.” But even if they do, it “will never become law. It’s going nowhere in the Senate,” Peterson said. The House and Senate must reconcile differences in their respective legislation before the final bill becomes law, and Senate leaders have made it clear that they’ll never agree to compromise legislation containing the requirement, Peterson said. A bigger concern, however, is that the push for the new work requirements will alienate urban legislators who in the past reluctantly supported crop insurance and other federal programs important to farmers, Peterson said.

6 things I relearned in D.C. By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

WASHINGTON, D.C. — I’m here in Washington, D.C., for the annual convention of the North American Agricultural Journalists, the professional group for U.S. and Canadian ag journalists. Many Agweek readers belong to professional organizations or commodity groups, and they understand the benefits of events like this one. Listening to knowledgeable speakers, meeting policymakers, rubbing shoulders with people who share your concerns and interests — the benefits are many and real. I’ve learned many new and important things, some of which will be featured in future Agweek stories. But I’m also being reminded of stuff I first learned at previous annual conventions. Here are a few things I’m relearning: Politicians and their staffs work hard. You may disagree with their positions, you may question their sincerity. But you can’t honestly deny that our elected officials — and the people they hire — put in long, demanding days. Yes, they knew what they going into when they ran for office and when they applied for staff positions. That doesn’t change how hard they work. The Upper Midwest isn’t exactly prominent here. Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota are mighty important to most Agweek readers. Not to D.C. residents. For example, my pleasant, efficient taxi driver — who asked me at the airport where I’m from — was clearly stumped when I said I live in North Dakota. After a long pause, he asked, “Do you have many taxis there?” I answered, “No, we don’t have enough people to have many taxis.” Washington doesn’t revolve around agriculture. Ag dominates my life. It’s important, even dominant, in the lives of most Agweek readers. And, yes, it’s important to some folks here in D.C. But many of our elected officials have little understanding, and even less interest, in agriculture. That doesn’t make them bad or stupid; it means they represent states and districts where ag isn’t particularly important. Sure, you can argue that ag is important to everyone, that a safe, affordable food supply is vital to our country. But a vast number of topics and economic sectors are vying for attention here, and many of them are important, too. Ag won’t get as much attention as you and I think it deserves. Nor should it. Just as mining or manufacturing shouldn’t get as much attention as people involved in those sectors want. Individual farmers and ranchers make a difference. Yes, this is a complicated, complex place. But farm organizations and commodity groups do influence ag policy here — and those groups and organizations rely on their members. So pick a commodity or issue that’s important to you and join a group that promotes or defends it. Whether it’s at the state level or here in Washington, you can make a difference. Eventually, you might come to hold leadership positions. I’ve just been installed as 2018 national president of our group, after previously serving as national vice president and Midwest regional vice president. Hey, if I can do it, you surely can, too. Agriculture is as interesting as ever. Science and technology continue to change and evolve. So do tax laws and trade policy. There’s always more to learn. The details can be complicated, but nobody can accuse ag of being static or boring. Washington is a nice place to visit, but … . I’m enjoying my time here. It’s benefitting me personally and professionally. But my North Dakota home, humble as it may be, is the place for me. It will be good to get back.

ND Farmers Union opens seventh restaurant

JAMESTOWN, N.D. — The North Dakota Farmers Union’s seventh farmer-owned restaurant opened its doors in Reston, Va., in partnership with Agraria LLC members and the Farmers Restaurant Group. Founding Farmers Reston is located at Reston Station on D.C.’s Metro subway line. Just five months ago, the organization opened its first location outside of the Beltway near Philadelphia. Like other Founding Farmers restaurants, the newest storefront will feature made-from-scratch comfort food served at affordable prices with ingredients sourced from American family farms and ranches. Collectively, the restaurants serve more than 45,000 diners a week. The group’s flagship restaurant near the White House remains the most-booked restaurant in the country on for five years running. The concept of a farmer-owned restaurant started at NDFU with the idea that farmers could secure a greater share of the U.S. food dollar by taking advantage of opportunities at the top of the production food chain rather than the bottom.

New Minnesota Grown Directory now available ST. PAUL, Minn. — The 2018 Minnesota Grown Directory, a 1,000-member directory of Minnesota agricultural products and services available directly from farmers and farmers markets, is now available. The directory is searchable by region, farm name or product, including locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, dairy items, wineries, nurseries, Christmas trees, Community Supported Agriculture operations and more. The Minnesota Grown Directory highlights farms and farmers markets from all parts of Minnesota. It features peak season information for a variety of fruits and vegetables, storage tips and preparation ideas, including recipes from local chefs. Minnesota Cooks — the educational outreach program of directory sponsor Minnesota Farmers Union — has once again contributed recipes from local chefs and restaurateurs to contribute recipes that celebrate Minnesota’s unique agricultural offerings. For a free, printed copy of the Minnesota Grown Directory, visit the Minnesota Grown website or call Explore Minnesota Tourism at 1-888-TOURISM.

Permits needed to apply pesticides, fertilizers through irrigation systems

ST. PAUL, Minn. — As Minnesotans look ahead to another growing season, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture is issuing a reminder that chemigation permits from the MDA are required to apply fertilizers or pesticides through irrigation systems. A permit for chemigation is required for farms, greenhouses, golf courses, nurseries and other settings where agricultural chemicals are applied through an irrigation system that is directly connected to a water supply. Agricultural chemicals include fertilizers and pesticides. A person operating the system is responsible for obtaining the permit and complying with all regulatory requirements. Operators must complete an online application form at https://www2.mda.state. and pay the required fee. More information on a chemigation permit, including forms and fact sheets, can be found at If you have questions, contact MDA Chemigation Program Consultants Jim Freilinger at 320243-7382 or Jeff Lorentz at 320-223-6547.

New app will help ID plants, pests and diseases BOZEMAN, Mont. — Montanans can now turn to their phones for help in identifying weeds, insects

and crop diseases. A new phone app provides an additional tool to those who might otherwise text, email or send samples through the mail to the Schutter Diagnostic Lab at Montana State University, said Mary Burrows, lab director and MSU Extension plant pathologist. The MSU lab provides identification services for plant diseases, insects, weeds, native plants and mushrooms. Farmers who use the app, for example, could take a digital photo of an abnormal wheat stem, then upload the photo and fill out a form with their questions, extra details and contact information. The app will direct the query to the proper expert to determine the cause and suggest possible remedies for the problem. Homeowners might use the app to identify an unusual spider that lives in their basement, Burrows added. Extension agents who monitor the incoming questions might learn that a new invasive weed or pest has entered Montana. The app could also give diagnosticians more complete information than they currently receive, Burrows said. Funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the app is free and available now. For more information and how to use the app, go to

Pie tips and tricks: Double Cherry Pie Recipe By Cristen Clark

The insanely freezing April weather and recent trade concerns can get the best of most people, but I firmly believe a little pie helps reset the maniacal, heal the hurting and spreads joy and cheer to all who savor a slice. Pie is a universal comfort food. The care it takes to make delicious pie is evident in every bite that’s enjoyed. If you ask me, fruit pies are back “in style.” They are a nod to nostalgia, transporting all who enjoy them to “Grandma’s kitchen.” Making great pie is a life-skill and one that is honed not only by love and care, but by experience and consistent practice. As a food contest judge, my favorite classes to judge are fruit pie classes, for obvious reasons and also because I learn so many tips and tricks to employ in my own kitchen. Entrants are endlessly creative and there are several ideas that consistently repeat in their winning recipes. 1. Mix it up: If you are making an apple pie, use 3 types of apples. One tart, one sweet and one in between. Swap out some of the cinnamon in an apple pie for some lemon zest. The acidity from the zest will complement the warmness of the cinnamon. 2. If you are using freshly grated citrus zest of any kind in your pie, take extra time to rub the zest with granulated sugar from the recipe. This action will encourage the natural oils from the zest to release and “perfume” the sugar, increasing the enhancing flavor of your finished pie. It also breaks down the zest pieces slightly so they are less detected in the finished pie. 3. Don’t wreck your crust. If you are preparing a cooked filling, let the filling cool prior to adding it to your pastry-lined pie plate. If you don’t wait, the hot pie filling will melt the fat in your crust. It’s imperative that the fat component in your pie crust is well-chilled so it steams when the pie is introduced to the hot oven. The puff of steam the chilled fat gives off when it hits the hot oven creates delicate flaky layers that the best pies all have. 4. Rest: After removing fruit pies from the oven, allow four hours for the pie to rest to achieve proper “set.” This means it won’t ooze all over the pie plate once you cut the first slice. 5. The “cheeriest” pie of all is cherry.

Double Cherry Pie Makes 1 standard sized pie Ingredients: Filling: • 3 cups frozen tart/sour cherries, thawed, strained and very gently pressed of juices • 1 ½ cup frozen dark sweet cherries, thawed, strained and very gently pressed of juices • 1 cup of reserved cherry juice (reserve juice and add water if need be to make 1 cup) • 1 ¼ cup sugar • 3 tablespoons corn starch • Pinch of salt • 2 tablespoons instant tapioca pearls • ¼ teaspoon almond extract • 2 tablespoons butter • 1 beaten egg plus 2 teaspoons water • 1 tablespoon sanding sugar or granulated sugar • Pastry for a two crust pie (see below) Thaw cherries. Reserve juice. Set cherries aside. Place cherry juice, sugar, cornstarch and salt in saucepan over medium heat. Cook until juice is clear. Cool slightly, add cherries. Cool to lukewarm. Fold in tapioca. Pour into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot top of filling  with 2 tablespoons butter. Cover with desired topping/crust. Crimp decoratively and vent decoratively. Brush with egg wash, sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350, continue baking for 40-50 minutes until slow bubbles form in the filling around the

sides or up through vents of pie. You may wrap an aluminum foil collar around the outside crust if the pie gets too brown during baking. (I wrap my foil collar before the pie goes into the oven, removing it for the last 15-20 minutes of baking.) Lard or Butter Pie Pastry: Pastry: • 2 ½ cup all purpose flour • ¾ teaspoon salt • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar • 1 cup butter or lard, frozen or well-chilled, cubed into half inch cubes (or ½ cup of each) • 1 tablespoon vinegar (apple cider or white) • ½-plus  cup ice water (more or less depending on humidity in your region) Combine dry ingredients, whisk well. Cut butter into flour until coarse crumbs form. Combine wet ingredients, add them to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. This mixture is ready when you can grab a portion of it in your palm, squeeze and it sticks together. Turn half the mixture out onto plastic wrap, shape into a disk.  Repeat with the other half. Cover both  with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 F. When ready to roll crusts: Remove from refrigerator, remove plastic. Generously flour workspace, roll crust out to 13 to 14-inch disks. Place one  in pie pan. Do not stretch. Patch any imperfections (holes, etc.) Fill pie carefully with filling of choice.  (Not HOT filling, only lukewarm or cooler so you don’t melt the fat in the crust.) Basket weave lattice crust on top of filling. Fold crust under, crimp decoratively. Return to refrigerator or prepare pie immediately. Freezing:  Freeze prepared pie in an aluminum pie plate. Bake frozen pie at 400 for 30 minutes and 350 for an additional 50-70 minutes until juices are bubbling from vents/lattice in pie.

Top USDA officials talks China, soybeans By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Steve Censky spent 21 years as CEO of the American Soybean Association. Now, as U.S. Department of Agriculture Deputy Secretary of Agriculture, he’s part of an administration pursuing trade policies that deeply concern U.S. soybean farmers. Asked what he says about that to his former colleagues, Censky answered, “Understand the anxiety very well. China is U.S. soybean farmers’ No. 1 market.” “What I would say is, those (concerns) are understandable. Certainly we’re hoping that we can be successful, that China comes to the table (to negotiate),” he said. Censky met with members of the North American Agricultural Journalists April 9 during the group’s annual convention in Washington, D.C. Censky was a substitute for Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, who was in Washington but unavailable

for the meeting, according to USDA staff. It ’s thought to be the first time since the early 1950s that the serving ag secretary did not meet with the ag journalSubmitted photo ists during their SU.S. Department of annual convenAgriculture Deputy tion. Secretary of Agriculture As depuSteve Censky. ty secretary, Censky runs the day-to-day operations of 90,000 ag department employees nationwide. He’s responsible for implementing policies set by Congress and the Trump administration, which includes Perdue.

The administration’s trade policies, particularly its stance on trade with China, alarm many in U.S. agriculture, including soybean farmers. But Trump is doing what he believes to be best for the country, said Censky, who grew up on a soybean, corn and diversified livestock farm near Jackson, Minn. His Upper Midwest ties include serving as a legislative assistant for former U.S. Sen. Jim Abdnor, R.-S.D. “The president has made it clear that some countries like China don’t play by the rules, that his job is to make sure he’s protecting American interests. And certainly he’s taken action to do that,” he said. “Farmers and ranchers, I think, understand that. But at the same time, we know that those actions have created a lot of anxiety,” he said.

Even so, Censky said he remains optimistic about the future of U.S. agriculture trade, given growing world demand for food and the U.S. ability to grow and export it. Censky’s other comments include covered the following topics: ► USDA is continuing to invest in infrastructure in rural America. ► Agriculture is “a big beneficiary” of tax cuts and job acts enacted shortly before Christmas. ► USDA has filled most of its state-level administrative vacancies and is working to fill the rest. ► The North American Free Trade Agreement has been good for U.S. agriculture, and the ag sector has consistently made it clear that ongoing revisions in NAFTA must not hurt ag.

How does Bio-Forge Advanced manage plant stress when weather conditions aren’t perfect? ®

It’s nearing mid-April and snow is still on the ground. Farmers are anxious to get into the field and planning how to best manage a cold, wet planting season in order to raise a healthy crop with the highest yields possible. The goal of every farmer is higher yields — but the potential for high yield is already present in the seed they purchase. “The genetic potential for yield that is already in corn seed could be as high as 800 bushels per acre,” says Dale Hanke, director of marketing for Stoller USA. “Seed is one of the most important purchases a farmer makes. Rather than thinking how to increase yields, we need to focus on what we can do to reduce the loss of yield caused by outside factors.” Stress management Stress, especially abiotic plant stress, costs farmers bushels at harvest time. Growing conditions are seldom perfect and even in the best growing season, plants are impacted by stress. Abiotic plant stressors are non-living factors that negatively affect seed germination, vegetative growth and seed development, such as: • Temperature extremes (frost, cold and heat) • Water extremes (drought or excessive rainfall) • Mineral imbalances (nutrient deficiencies or excessive salinity) These conditions, if not managed proactively, cause the plant to lose up to 70 percent of their potential, resulting in yield loss. The potential for yield loss starts as soon as a farmer opens a bag or container of seed since stress

even prior to planting negatively affects yield. Stoller’s Bio-Forge Advanced® was developed for farmers to achieve optimal plant health when weather conditions aren’t perfect. It works in wet, cool planting conditions by reducing the impact of stress on the plant. What is Bio-Forge Advanced? Bio-Forge Advanced brings a revolutionary new level of stress management to crop production. Progressive farmers utilize Stoller’s Bio-Forge Advanced to manage the abiotic stress their crops are exposed to from the time the seed is planted until the crop is harvested. Bio-Forge Advanced contains the patented technology of Bio-Forge along with two important minerals, Cobalt and Molybdenum. Together, these components provide three modes of action to fight abiotic plant stress, all in one product. “Farmers traditionally look at insects and diseases as pests that

can rob yields, but they also need to understand that one of the worst yield robbing “pests” they will face all season long, from planting to harvest, is weather-induced stress,” says Hanke. “BioForge Advanced helps crops manage stress. It manages weather stress best when applied before the stress event happens or very soon after a stress event occurs.” Bio-Forge Advanced is versatile and cost-effective as a seed treatment through infurrow application at planting and in foliar sprays with most herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. “Bio-Forge Advanced reduces the impact of stress on the plant,” says Hanke. “To maximize yield, you have to be willing to feed that crop and do what you can to manage abiotic stress response throughout the season.” When Bio-Forge Advanced is incorporated into the growing process, the plant’s energy is focused on productivity — not wasted on managing environmental stress and excess ethylene. It also allows crops to efficiently utilize soil nutrients, leading to greater productivity and yields. Eliminate stress this season To help combat wet, cold planting conditions, farmers should plan to add Bio Forge Advanced to their farming practice this growing season. Farmers can contact Plant Power Agriculture to find out how BioForge Advanced and other Stoller products can help their plants function more efficiently.

Sustainability draws differing views By Jonathan Knutson Agweek Staff Writer

Your definition, please No two agriculturalists view or define sustainability in exactly the same way. If you’d like to share your thoughts, we’d be happy to share them at Agweekmagazine/. Send your definition of no more than 100 words, along with your name and hometown, to Jonathan Knutson at, by April 30. • USTAINABILITY has become one of the most widely used words in American agriculture and the U.S. food system. Farmers and ranchers frequently talk about it and how to best incorporate it into their farms and ranches. But the term and concept behind it means different things to different people and organizations. Though they all agree sustainability is important, they often disagree about how individual agricultural producers and U.S. ag in general should respond. Agweek asked a wide range of Upper Midwest farm groups and farmers these questions: How do you define sustainability? Is U.S. agriculture making progress in achieving it? Here are their written answers, some edited for length.


Jason Walker, communication director of the Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota: “To be truly sustainable, a farm must do three things: Produce enough food, produce enough income for the farmer and leave the land in better condition for future generations. All three must occur for true sustainable farming; the loss of any means sustainability is unachievable. Achieving the final factor, though, will have the most overall impact. “Low commodity prices and the power of soil health are shifting the paradigm toward a profitable model of continuous cover, crop diversity, less tillage and livestock integration. Farmers see this as a profitable model and have the evidence to prove it. Yet government policy and institutional thinking is way behind, still focused on outdated principles that do not prioritize land stewardship and rely on too many agricultural inputs. SFA knows we can achieve sustainability, we CAN make more money farming with positive environmental impacts, and farmers must powerfully lead the way through adoption of soil health principles.”


12 Monday, April 16, 2018 / AGWEEK

David Clough, Fessenden, N.D., farmer and chairman of the North Dakota Wheat Commission: (He has enhanced the sustainability of his farm through technology, cropping rotation and no-till to improve soil and water management). “As farmers we have always been conservationists. The land is our livelihood. We need it, so we try to preserve it in many different ways. “We weren’t as sustainable when I started farming almost 50 year ago, but we have changed and adapted and we will keep changing and adapting.”


Alexander Smart, South Dakota state co-coordinator of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education, or SARE: “This is a question that I have been wrestling with for over the last 15 years of my professional career. The word “sustainable” has a subjective meaning for different people. This is likely in part because the idea of sustainability has some measure of time associated with it. “So what is sustainable? A lifetime, many lifetimes, etc.? Sometimes unintended consequences are unforeseen or not measured, and we think what we are doing is sustainable when it actually may not be in the long run. So what is sustainable agriculture? For a system to be sustainable it must be: 1) profitable, 2) environmentally friendly, and 3) socially relevant.”


Julie Schaff Ellingson, executive vice president of the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association: (The response is a shortened version of the organization’s beef sustainability policy.) “’Sustainability’ has become a buzzword in the industry, and the definition of sustainability has economic ramifications for all industry segments. The NDSA believes that any definition of sustainability should include economic viability of each industry segment, including cow-calf producers, because a ranching operation that is not profitable is not sustainable; the NDSA also believes that any beef sustainability program should be voluntary, market-driven and science-based.

“NDSA supports the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association in leading discussions about beef sustainability with industry partners to ensure that economic viability and production efficiencies are at the center of any programs they develop and decisions they make relating to this topic.”


Susan Long, office manager of Northern Plains Sustainable Agriculture Society: “In relation to agriculture, NPSAS members typically view sustainability from an ecological perspective — believing that plants, animals, insects and all living organisms are working together to improve our natural resources. Implementation of regenerative practices, crop and livestock diversity, holistic land management, increasing soil fertility, cultivation of heirloom seeds and enhancing existing resources are just a few ways to preserve food sovereignty while nurturing the health of our planet for our children and their children. “Consumers are driving the direction of agriculture now more than ever by challenging growers to think about the long-term implications of practices implemented. In order to remain sustainable, growers must meet consumer demand, balance profitability and annually improve the health of the soil so that grains, vegetables, fruits and livestock are healthier for people to eat.”


Brad Greenway, chairman of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance and a Mitchell, S.D. farmer and rancher: “U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) identifies sustainability as a key issue in earning consumer trust in agriculture. When defining this widely-used buzzword, USFRA research shows that nearly 80 percent of consumers associate sustainability and the environment to air, water, soil and habitat. “These findings impact our strategy in communicating to consumers that today’s farmers and ranchers utilize technology to continually improve their environmental and economical sustainability. Precision farming, GMOs, advanced indoor housing and footprint calculators are a few of the many tools we use to implement and measure sustainability to guide us through our efforts to conserve natural resources and enhance animal welfare.” “Through these efforts on the farm and agriculture’s active role in connecting with the consumer, USFRA research shows an increase in the percentage of Americans who strongly trust

COVER STORY farmers and ranchers in the United States (we’re at 34 percent in 2017 compared to 28 percent in 2016 and 24 percent in 2015).”


Jerry Schmitz, president of the South Dakota Soybean Association and a Vermillion, S.D., farmer: “Farm sustainability is producing food, feed, fiber and fuel for a rapidly growing population in a way that is safe for people, animals and the environment; and is perpetually renewable as well as economically viable for consumers and producers. Farmers are constantly seeking new methods and technologies in our effort to be sustainable for ourselves, our society and future generations. “Agriculture is going in the right direction, but we need to continually evaluate where we have been, the methods we employ now and how we can best serve the world. Our forefathers prepared the seedbed by plowing every inch of soil which led to wind and water erosion, but at the time there was no better method of controlling weeds and preparing a seedbed. Today we employ better methods and with the help of new technologies like biotechnology and precision agriculture, tomorrow looks even brighter.”


Paul Overby, a Wolford, N.D., farmer, businessman and conservationist: “Sustainability for me is a based on Christian stewardship, recognizing that I am responsible for both what I do today and my impact on the well-being of future generations. It means farming in a way that protects, and then rebuilds, soil resources so future families will have a dependable food supply. It means using all available technology we can afford to reduce using fuel, fertilizer, and chemicals while still producing a profitable crop. It also means being a good steward of things I don’t make a profit on, such as wildlife and beauty. “Ag is slowly adopting many precision ag and soil health practices that improve sustainability. But we need to move the short-term profit focus to long-term resource building to truly become sustainable.”


Kirby Hettver, president of the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and a DeGraff, Minn., farmer: “In late 2016, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association set a goal for Minnesota corn farmers to become the most environmentally responsible and sustainable corn farmers in the nation. Our definition of sustainability is made up of three equally important elements, all of which relate to and influence each other: First is people. Our model of sustainability strengthens farms and rural communities while enabling a safe and healthy quality of life for all Minnesotans. Next is planet. Sustainable practices

manage and replenish finite resource critical to agriculture, while protecting and enhancing the environment impacted by farming. And finally, profit. Sustainability provides a fair margin of profit for farmers while delivering equitably priced goods to all. “While commodity prices are impacting the profitability on farms throughout the state, I believe agriculture is moving in the right direction by becoming more sustainable in the areas we can control.”


Ben Lilliston, director of Rural Strategies and Climate Change at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, Minneapolis: “Sustainability applies to both present and future generations. It protects and preserves the environment (including the climate); is economically viable; and is socially equitable for the connected community. “Agriculture as a whole is struggling to move toward sustainability. Current market conditions aren’t producing fair prices for farmers. Short-term economic pressures make it difficult to invest in long-term environmental protections. Fewer, big farms are less connected to the rural communities they surround. Some farmers and rural areas are going against the grain, moving toward sustainability by investing in systems based on soil health, cleaner water and air, locally owned businesses and the rural communities where they live. They are leading the way to a sustainable agriculture future.”


Tregg Cronin, South Dakota Wheat Commission commissioner and Gettysburg, S.D., farmer: “The term sustainability is being used these days in conjunction with everything from farming to paper bags. “Yet, the term means so much more to people who live and breathe it. As a producer, reflecting on the term sustainability causes one to reflect on the direction of their entire operation. Is what I’m doing going to afford my children, and my children’s children the chance to build a life off the land I farm? The answer to that question for me lends itself directly to diversity, and ensuring my land and soil are properly taken care of. As our farm manager, Dan Forgey, has often said, ‘If you take care of the land, it will take care of you.’ For our farm, making sure wheat has a stable place in our rotation is part of keeping our land and soil happy.”


Mary Podoll, North Dakota State Conservationist, Natural Resources Conservation Service, an arm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture: “Sustainability is ‘the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.’ I think the definition should also include enhancement or ‘to improve.’ Hugh Hammond Bennett

was the think tank behind the movement for soil conservation on agriculture lands. He believed in the voluntary approach; 83 years later this approach is still amazingly strong. Being part of the conservation story for 30 years myself, I think that the knowledge we have gained in the past 15 years on soil biology is the ‘new frontier’ for sustainability. “NRCS defines conservation as the stewardship of soil, water, plants, air, animals (both domestic and wildlife) in a manner that allows for healthy food and fiber, and in a way that sustains or enhances the resource. Knowledge of land and soil capabilities and risk mitigation are key. If stewardship was easy, we wouldn’t have loss of soil organic matter, poor water quality and hypoxia issues; we know a lot — but it’s not easy to practice. The new frontier of soil biology along with what we know about dynamic soil properties (chemical and physical) will increase our knowledge and ability to help agriculture build upon conservation practices to enhance soil and water for a bright future.”


Joseph Jensen, a Lewistown, Mont., senior majoring in crop biotechnology at Montana State University: “To answer the question what does sustainability mean to me — I feel that it comes down to four things. Sustainable agriculture needs to be economical, an efficient use of resources, produce high quality products and ensure a good quality of life for the producer. To have a truly sustainable system, agriculture will need to encompass all four of these broad topics. I do feel that agriculture is always moving toward being more sustainable. Producers have to constantly balance these issues to meet their own needs and the needs of the consumers. That being said, I also feel that a truly sustainable system will never be reached. It will be something that producers will strive for and in the end, push agriculture forward in positive direction.”


Pete Hanebutt, North Dakota Farm Bureau Public Policy Director: In the Farm Bureau network, sustainable agriculture means production — under best management practices — meets the needs of the American consumer and the world. NDFB believes production agriculture is heading in the right direction and has been since at least World War I. American farmers currently feed themselves plus other people here and abroad. Research, efficiencies and scientifically improved methods of production have made this possible, and we’ve maintained the healthiest environment of anywhere in the world.” “American agriculture is sustainable and will continue to be, as long as farmers and ranchers are able to use the tools they need to safely provide food and fiber without government overreach or misguided rules based on an erroneous perception of modern agriculture.” Monday, April 16, 2018 / AGWEEK



Trump announces support for year-round E15 sales By Jenny Schlecht Agweek Staff Writer

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on April 12 announced his support for year-round sales of E15, an announcement cheered by farm groups, corn growers and the ethanol industry. Sales of E15, which is 15 percent ethanol and 85 percent gasoline, have been prohibited from June 1 to Sept. 15 due to federal law and regulations regarding formation of surface ozone and smog. Trump made his comments regarding E15 during a meeting at the White House with governors and lawmakers. Kevin Skunes, an Arthur, N.D., farmer and president of the National Corn Growers Association, said the move will provide for consumer savings, environmental advantages and a more stable corn market. NCGA wants to work alongside the Trump administration to make the change happen. “NCGA has been advocating for this parity for higher blends of ethanol not only for these benefits but also because the additional ethanol blending addresses refiner concerns about (Renewable Identification Number) values,” Skunes said in a statement. “Increased blending lowers RIN values.” Refiners have argued rising prices of such num-

bers has hurt them in trying to meet their burdens under the Renewable Fuel Standard. “E15 blending nationwide will increase ethanol blending which will increase the supply of RIN credits and help bring down their price,” said American Coalition for Ethanol CEO Brian Jennings in a statement. Jennings said his organization looks forward to “participating in the process to finally make E15 sales year-round a reality.” “Allowing the sale of E15 year-round is not only a commonsense step to provide regulatory relief to retailers, it is a win for their customers, who save about a nickel to a dime with each gallon of E15 at the pump,” Jennings said in a statement. Emily Skor, CEO of Growth Energy, a biofuels trade association, said allowing year-round sales of E15 is a “common-sense fix to create a level playing field for cleaner, more affordable fuel options during the summer driving season.” “This simple fix allows retailers to offer better options alongside traditional blends all year long,” she said in a statement. Roger Johnson, president of National Farmers Union, applauded the potential move while also suggesting the president could go farther.

“Family farmers are facing severely depressed prices due to massive oversupply of corn and other commodities. We appreciate the administration’s move to remove this unnecessary regulation that decreases demand for farm products,” Johnson said in a statement. “While this waiver will go a long way towards cutting into the corn supply, more can and should be done for higher blends of ethanol, like E30. This high-octane fuel offers better economic, fuel economy and air quality benefits than do lower blends of ethanol, yet far too many barriers continue to exist to keep it from being used.”

Skunes also pointed out another ethanol-related area where the Environmental Protection Agency could do more. “Even with the positive news from the White House today, NCGA continues to call on EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to stop granting small refinery exemptions, giving extremely profitable refiners a pass on meeting their RFS obligations and destroying demand. We remain opposed to further demand destruction through a RIN price cap or other policies that undermine the RFS,” he said.

(patent pending)

By Peter Welte I am a fan of axioms, statements that are just generally accepted as true, no matter what the situation. One of my favorite axioms is “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” I am also a fan of great movie lines. One of my favorites is from the 1950 classic “All About Eve,” where Bette Davis famously says “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night.” These two quotes are great examples of what’s happening in agriculture this past week. Since our last column, the Trump administration has been in the news regarding broad-based tariffs imposed on a variety of goods and commodities. A full analysis of the tariffs is beyond the 650 word limit of this column. But the short story is this: In late March, President Donald Trump instructed the United States Trade Representative to apply $50 billion of tariffs on Chinese goods imported to the U.S. In response, the Dow Jones average fell more than 700 points. On April 4 May soybeans fell 22 cents to $10.15 per bushel in heavy trading. Much of the anxiety in the soybean market had to do with the fact that China implemented their own tariffs in response to the Trump tariffs, with the China tariffs covering several agricultural products at a rate of 15 to 25 percent, including 25 percent on U.S. soybeans, which is the United States’ top agricultural export to China. Scary stuff, right? It looked like we had a full-blown trade war in the brewing. Well, you can’t judge a book by its cover. Since April 4, the May soybean contract on the Chicago Board of Trade is up 35 cents and counting. Hard red spring wheat — on the May 2018 contract — on the Minneapolis Grain Exchange is up nearly 55 cents since the beginning of the month. Farmers, most of whom aren’t even close to being in the field in this region, are asking “what gives?” There are several theories to what is happening. But the fact of the matter is that it is way too early to tell what the long-term effect of these tariffs — on either side of the aisle — will be. There is an article on by Kenneth Rapoza entitled “Trump’s Tariff Threats Are Working On China.” Conversely, according to Tom Philpott on, “Trump’s Trade War Is About to Screw Over California’s Remaining Republicans.” The New York Times has an interesting column by Steven Lee Myers entitled “Why China Is Confident It Can Beat Trump in a Trade War.” The numbers of opinions in the blogosphere are limited only by the amount of time you have to read them. The fact is the Trump tariffs have not hurt farmers. And so far the objective indications are that they are helping farmers. Politics aside, farmers who are making planting decisions are doing so based upon several variables. Among these variables are the late spring, the predicted weather pattern, seed and fertilizer prices, and seed and fertilizer supplies. One other variable farmers try to predict is what price they will receive for their commodities once they’re harvested. That’s the most interesting variable in the equation right now. Markets tend to be volatile when there is uncertainty. During my undergrad days at North Dakota State University, an iconic agricultural economics professor of mine used the phrase “buy the rumor, sell the fact.” When there is uncertainty, there are increased buying and selling opportunities, but with those opportunities comes increased risk. As I write this, the fall prices for wheat, soybeans and corn are at $5.85, $9.50, and $3.37, respectively. I don’t know much, but I do know that I will be astounded if those numbers are the same in September, which is only five months away. So farmers, keep your eye on the markets daily. And watch the value of the dollar as a gauge of market direction, as well. And as Bette Davis said, fasten your seatbelts!

Increase a farm’s legacy and hold on to tradition By Marytina Lawrence Special to Agweek

It is really hard to describe what it is like to live and work on a family farm. It was not something I was familiar with prior to marrying my husband and something that has required varied levels of adjustment and patience over the 23 years I have been a Lawrence. My husband works every day with his mom, dad and brother. He is the third generation on his family farm and our children are the fourth. When you work with your family, life can be total bliss. And there are times when it can be a challenge. I would never wish for any other way to live, mind you, as I believe the positives far outweigh the negatives. However, we are all human, all intelligent and determined, and there are times when that can prove to present interesting challenges. My husband said to me once many years ago that his dedication to the farm and the family is about the legacy he wishes to leave his children. The Lawrence family has been raising Hereford cattle for more than 60 years. Does anyone do anything for that long a period of time anymore? It is a true legacy when you think about the generational impact that has on us as a family and on the people we serve through farming. When I first became a Lawrence, I didn’t quite understand the significance of that. It took me a while to appreciate the complexity and tradition of what it means to be committed to something for that long with the sole intent of maintaining that legacy for years to come. There is commitment of grand proportions wrapped up in the years of hard work through good times and difficult times. I look at the future of our cattle business and am inspired and encouraged by the enthusiasm with which my children approach the future. I see their desire to take hold of something they will inherit and make it more than it is at this moment. To increase the legacy and hold on to the tradition that makes it what it is today. I am excited for the future because of all the work that was done in the past to give them the opportunity to make something great in their own lifetime. All this made me ponder the state of our society and the need to always have the next best thing. The hard work and appreciation for the work of the past has brought us to how we live today. I am thankful that my children understand and appreciate what has been laid out for them. I ask you to consider those traditions in your home and family. How will you have an impact and preserve those traditions for future generations? At Lawrence Herefords, I am confident in the generations to come and thankful for the generations past who have blessed me with the opportunity to live in legacy.

Beets return to prominence Share values show strength By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — American Crystal Sugar Co. stock share prices and trading ran steady to stronger in the trading season, which seems to be coming to a conclusion, says Jayson Menke, ag stock specialist at FNC Ag Stock LLC, in Grand Forks, N.D. American Crystal of Moorhead, Minn., is a farmer-owned cooperative in which members purchase shares, which offer the right and obligation to deliver beets. Shares typically are bought and sold from harvest until spring. FNC Ag Stock is a subsidiary of Farmers National Company. It helps facilitate sales of agricultural stocks that are non-exchange listed, including ethanol and sugar beet shares, including American Crystal.

In the fall of 2017, the FNC Ag Stock’s initial sale was in mid-September. Sales started at $2,725 per share. The last sale so far was in mid-March at $3,100 per share. FNC Ag Stock was involved in transfers of 2,000 shares with an average price of $2,943 per share, which is about average for recent years. The earliest FNC Ag Stock has seen sales shut off has been the middle of March. Last year some shares were sold until May 9 or 10. The latest has been May 12. “All transfers require board approval from American Crystal,” Menke says. Current sugar prices are allowing producers to make money.

$48/ton outlook One factor strengthening prices was that the American Crystal board in March increased their gross beet payment projection from $46 per ton to $48 per ton for 2018 beets. Sugar price projections don’t always happen this time of year. Favorable marketing and a cold spring

that helps with beet storage were factors in the increase. One wild card in this year’s sales is that, starting in 2018, American Crystal is requiring that all parties in a limited partnership must sign a notarized personal guarantee to American Crystal. Five years ago Crystal went from a strong beet payment to a weak payment, due to market shifts. In one-year limited partnerships, some growers told their shareholder limited partners they wanted to not plant beets. Beet co-ops need to cover about $500 to $600 in fixed costs. “Things needed to be tightened so everyone knew their responsibility,” Menke says of the rationale. “Limited partners — with how the co-op laws are written — need to be at risk. The personal guarantee was created to make sure that everybody has skin in the game.” The new requirement seemed to have only “limited” impact, he says.

Filling capacity

Another factor buoying beet shares demand is that as beet yields have increased, co-op members have been allowed to plant a smaller percentage of share acres. Originally, a share of beet stock equalled one acre of production. In 2012, farmers could plant up to 88 percent of their share numbers. In 2018, farmers will be allowed to plant 73 to 78 percent of their share numbers. Consequently, some farmers seem to be buying shares to help increase their farm’s acreage closer to their original producing capacity, but aren’t necessarily looking to expand significantly. Also, other commodity prices have become weaker. “It’s not to say that farmers can’t make money on other crops this year, but beets have kind of returned to their prominence in the Red River Valley,” Menke says. “Beets have made a lot of farms (financially successful) over the last 30, 40 or 50 years.”

Are we headed for a trade war with China? By Sara Wyant Agri-Pulse

If you followed Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, you know that he talked tough on trade — especially when it came to countries he believed were giving the U.S. a raw deal. He pledged to either kill or renegotiate existing trade deals like the North American Free Trade Agreement. He saved some of his harshest words for China. At one point during the campaign, candidate Trump declared that “we already have a trade war” with China and vowed to slap tariffs on Chinese products and label the Asian giant as a currency manipulator. It was his blunt, populist appeal that attracted many “Rust Belt” and rural voters and helped propel him to the presidency. So, it really comes as no surprise that, a little over one year after his election, he announced that about $3 billion in steel and aluminum tariffs would be put in place to protect national security. Although several countries would be impacted, the target was clearly China — the largest global producer of steel and aluminum. Shortly after that announcement, China returned fire by imposing similar measures on $3 billion worth of U.S. pork, fruit, wine, nuts and other items. In the latest salvo of trade actions between the U.S. and Chinese governments, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce (MOC) announced plans to impose a 25 percent tariff on $50 billion of U.S. goods, including soybeans, aircraft and automobiles. The Commerce Ministry said the tariff would be imposed on 106 items of products under 14 categories — but the date of implementation will depend on when the U.S. government imposes tariffs on Chinese products. And last week, the U.S. Trade Representative published a list of 1,300 Chinese exports, worth about

“No, it is not (a trade war) and our objective is still not to be in a trade war with them, but let me be perfectly clear, President Trump has been from day one very clear on we are going to defend free and fair trade,” STEVE MNUCHIN, U.S. Treasury Secretary

$50 billion, that could be hit with a 25 percent tariff to punish the Asian giant for stealing U.S. trade secrets, intellectual property and innovation. Shortly afterwards, President Trump threatened another $100 billion in tariffs to retaliate against the retaliation. But it’s still not a trade war yet and there’s time to 18 Monday, April 16, 2018 / AGWEEK

disarm and step back, say U.S. and Chinese officials. “No, it is not (a trade war) and our objective is still not to be in a trade war with them, but let me be perfectly clear, President Trump has been from day one very clear on we are going to defend free and fair trade,” said U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Friday on CNBC. “We’ve been working with them over the last year and on the one hand, we’re willing to continue negotiations. On the other hand, the president is absolutely prepared to defend our interests.” Nonetheless, all the saber rattling is generating market uncertainty and growing concerns that farmers will bear the brunt of what could become a long drawn out trade war. Everything from pork to apples could take a hit, but soybean farmers are one of the most vulnerable to Chinese retaliation because they depend on that market to buy about $14 billion worth of the crop every year. Purdue University researchers, at the behest of the U.S. Soybean Export Council, took a look at some possible outcomes if China retaliated against new U.S. tariffs by hitting its soybean exports. Under the best-case scenario — a 10 percent tariff — U.S. exports to China would fall by a third, causing overall U.S. soybean production to drop by 8 percent. In the event of a 30 percent tariff, the researchers say U.S. exports to China would fall by 71 percent and total U.S. soybean production would decline by 17 percent. “It’s not nice when they hit the farmers specifically because they think that hits me,” Trump said April 9 about the various Chinese tariffs aimed at U.S. pork, soybeans, corn, sorghum, cotton, beef, oranges, plums and a long list of agricultural commodities. “Our farmers are great patriots. They understand that they’re doing this for the country and we’ll make it up to them.” U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Purdue has been trying to calm jittery nerves in farm country, telling folks that the President has instructed him to come up with plans to protect farmers, including using various U.S. Department of Agriculture options to compensate farmers for any potential losses. “He’s authorized and commanded us to take care of our producers,” Perdue emphasized. Perdue has not yet provided any details, but sources tell Agri-Pulse that the question of how to pay for the aid has been answered: Let China pay for it. A relatively obscure law known as Section 32 allows the USDA take money from customs duties and use it for a wide variety of things like disaster payments and purchasing surplus commodities and donating them to schools or other institutions.

Now that the Trump administration is levying new tariffs on steel and aluminum and planning to impose up to $150 billion more on China as punishment for intellectual property theft, those government coffers could swell. For years, there had been a restriction on the USDA from using Section 32 funds for emergency aid as well as a hard cap on how much of those funds can be used. That ended when Congress passed the omnibus spending bill for fiscal 2018. The restrictions were removed on Section 32, so long as the USDA Secretary “provides written notification of the expenditures to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress at least two weeks in advance.”

“China must be held accountable for its record of trade abuses and intellectual property theft, but the administration’s drastic trade policies would instead come back to hit American farmers and ranchers where it hurts,” HEIDI HEITKAMP, North Dakota Senator

That’s not the only source of funds the USDA can draw on. It can also go to the Commodity Credit Corporation, an institution used by the department to borrow money from the Treasury Department, allowing the USDA to “support the prices of agricultural commodities (other than tobacco) through loans, purchases, payments, and other operations.” But consider the change in dynamics if this would happen: U.S. farmers and ranchers who moved sharply away from government intervention in their farming and selling decisions in the 1990s could once again be heavily reliant on some type of government payment to stay afloat. Of course, many farmers and ranchers hope that cooler heads will prevail and that this global “war of words” will result in more robust trade negotiations and ultimately, better trading opportunities. But in the meantime, there is plenty of anxiety to go around. Although it’s not a trade war yet, Trump’s tariffs are a real and dangerous threat to the ag sector, says North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp. “China must be held accountable for its record of trade abuses and intellectual property theft, but the administration’s drastic trade policies would instead come back to hit American farmers and ranchers where it hurts,” she said. “Tariffs on critical exports like soybeans would cripple North Dakota’s ability to sell our products, and we’d most likely face an impending farm crisis.”

Acreage may be dictated by weather, not economics By Michelle Rook Special to Agweek

YANKTON, S.D. — The recent U.S. Department of Agriculture Prospective Plantings Report contained a few surprises, with United States farmers indicating they will plant fewer acres of corn and soybeans but more acres of wheat versus a year ago. The March 29 report showed farmers plan to plant 88 million acres of corn, down 2 percent from 2017, with soybean acreage also down 1 percent at 89 million. All wheat acreage was up 3 percent at 47.3 million acres, and spring wheat was up 15 percent at 12.6 million acres. Farmers in the northwestern Corn Belt indicated they’re following the national trends this spring, with fewer row crop acres and more spring wheat. South Dakota and Iowa corn acreage was unchanged, while Minnesota was down 550,000 acres and North Dakota was off 370,000 acres. South Dakota soybean acreage was down 50,000 compared to 2017, with Minnesota off 250,000 acres. Iowa was down 200,000 acres and North Dakota remained static. However, despite these intentions, Mother Nature may have the ultimate say on what actually gets planted, with winter dragging on through April. Prior to the report many farmers in the region anticipated steady to slightly lower corn acreage in 2018 due to the agronomic disadvantages of planting corn in subsequent years. “Most Minnesota farmers stick to their rotation of 50-50, and I think we’ll see a little less corn-on-corn than we normally do,” says Gene Stoel, a Lake Wilson, Minn., farmer. Brookings, S.D., farmer Craig Converse agrees.

Michelle Rook/Special to Agweek) With the persistence of winter, there are farmers already concerned about planting delays.

“I’m currently not planning on making any changes,” he says. “I raise corn and soybeans, and I like the 50-50 rotation. It works out good in our area.” He says there are more pest and disease pressures in corn-on-corn, and there can be yield drag. Plus, input costs are higher with corn, and the corn-soybean price ratio has been favoring beans for the last several months. So it was a bit of a surprise to see soybean acres also falling from 2017. “There’s a little more profitability in soybeans or an opportunity to create a profit more than

there is in corn today,” says Ray Gaesser, a Corning, Iowa farmer. Stoel says with the current prices, beans do result in more profit per acre than corn. “Beans probably hold a $20 to $30 advantage right now with normal yields,” he says. The lower input costs for beans also have some banks dictating that farmers plant beans in 2018. “Soybeans work better in a reduced funding scenario because the costs are not as high as the corn situation,” says Valley Springs, S.D., farmer Kevin Scott. However, despite the economics, the weather

at planting time still trumps all. Keith Alverson, who farms near Chester, S.D., says he planned on staying with the normal rotation but admits the weather forecast for April could force some tweaking. “As far north as we are, it seems like a late or early spring can make a big difference on what the planting ends up being,” he says. With the persistence of winter there are farmers already concerned about planting delays. Curt Hoffbeck, a field agronomist with Pioneer, recommends farmers stick with their full season corn maturities until at least May 15 and their normal maturities until May 25.

By Jenny Schlecht Agweek Staff Writer

Last year, we could check cows in light jackets or no jackets. We didn’t have to worry about anything freezing at night. This year, someone bundles up every couple hours around the clock to check for new calves. Farmers sometimes are in the field by now, or at least can see the day coming. This year, most fields still are covered in snow. But as I clicked through the historical data for city after city in the region, one thing occurred to me. On every graph of every year, the snow eventually stopped accumulating, and the temperatures eventually began to climb. Winter weather always stops, even when it feels like it’s lasted forever. Winter weather has lasted longer than we’d like and continues to hold on. But eventually, we’ll get in the fields. The cows will go to pasture. And we’ll be on to swearing that it’s hotter than it used to be.

I don’t think it’s incorrect to say that most people in this region are tired of winter weather. We’re used to winter; we’re not necessarily used to it lasting into April without a break. During my first job in journalism, I realized there was one sure-fire way to make sure I was writing something that would get read: by volunteering for the weather story. I don’t know how it is in the rest of the world, but in North Dakota, weather drives almost everything. Conversation? Check. Travel? Check? Recreation? Check. Farm and ranch work? Double check. I never wanted to be hyperbolic in my stories. Every storm isn’t a blizzard. Every winter isn’t the worst one ever experienced. Looking at the data can help tell the story. And sometimes it could help show people that, no, winters weren’t always harder years ago, no matter how high the snow piles seemed in your childhood memories. Thinking back on those days of digging into weather data got me wondering — are all of us just being whiny this year? How bad has this winter really been? Luckily, the National Weather Service has an extensive historical database of observed weather to draw on. I went through many points in It’s early April. Snow is still on the ground.

Did you grow corn 2013-2017? Watch mail for Syngenta suit info By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

FARGO, N.D. — Farmers who grew corn from 2013 to 2017 are likely to get notices in the mail in mid-May telling them to apply to be included in the $1.51 billion settlement with Syngenta over a faulty marketing of genetically modified corn varieties. Federal and state lawsuits were filed in 2016 alleging that Syngenta was negligent in prematurely introducing particular varieties of genetically modified corn into the marketplace. China stopped expected corn imports, which the suit says cost U.S. farmers and others money in each of the years since. Lead law firms in the case believe it is the largest agricultural settlement in U.S. history. The lawsuit payout will divide among four plaintiff classes: 1) All corn growers who did not raise Viptera or Duracade varieties, $1.438 billion (86 percent of the total) ; 2) corn growers who did raise Viptera and Duracade, $22.6 million; 3) grain handlers, including grain elevators, $29.9 million; 4) ethanol production plants, $19.5 million. The settlement indicates that one-third of the money — about $500 million — could go to plaintiff’s legal teams, depending on their

responsibilities in the case and court approval.

How to do it The federal case in June 2017 ended in a $122 million verdict for Kansas corn farmers, which set the stage for the $1.5 billion settlement. A federal district court judge in Kansas City, Mo., on April 10, 2018, approved a complex, 86-page settlement agreement. Eligible farmers and others are likely to start receiving mailed notices of eligibility on May 11, 2018. Then they’ll have until Oct. 12, 2018, to go online to Final approval by the court will come Nov. 15, 2018. Farmers, grain handlers and ethanol plants must must register their claim and fill out a questionnaire, either online or via mail, says Michelle Donarski, a Fargo, N.D., attorney involved in the case. “When you get the notice, go online and file. Do not wait. Do not delay,” she says. If things go as the preliminary settlement indicates, payments would likely come next year at this time. Per-bushel payment is not known until the court knows how many claims and bushels are filed. Corn growers and others who hadn’t previously signed up through an attorney also can go online and file their claim. The benefit for people who previously filed with Donarski or other attorneys is that the lawyers can help them file claims and make sure the Farm Ser-

vice Agency acreage figures are accurate. “We cannot sign up any new corn growers,” she says. She says some ethanol plants and elevators have come to the firm for assistance. Assuming the judge finally approves the current deal by Nov. 15, 2018, an administrator would start making payments after April 1, 2019. That’s the date that Syngenta is expected to make its third and final payment into an escrow account established for the purpose.

age of the bushels they produced in a given year — 2013 (26 percent), 2014 (33 percent), 2015 (20 percent), 2016 (11 percent), and 2017 (10 percent). They’ll be paid on county average yields for each of those particular years — not an individual farmer’s proven yield. Donarski says that hasn’t been popular with many clients who felt they produced more bushels than their county averages.

Pie shared

Don’t wait

Among the details: A husband and wife who farm as separate entities both need to file separate claims to receive full benefits. Crop-share landlords must submit their own claim; the tenant can’t do it for them, she says. Cash rent landlords are not eligible. “When in doubt, go ahead and file a claim,” Donarski advises. “The claim administrator can work through the claims and the payment.” Under the agreement, lawyers and farmers no longer are responsible for collecting FSA documents (Form 578, report of acreage) to verify claims. Instead, the FSA is automatically uploading the acres to the claim administrator. By filling out the form, the claimant authorizes the FSA to release the data. Farmers are not allowed to provide their FSA records and must sign the authorization for release of FSA records on the claim form to perfect their claim. Farmers will be paid on a weighted percent-

Donarski, a shareholder-attorney at the Anderson, Bottrell Sanden and Thompson law firm in Fargo, brought some North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota farmers into the suit. The firm held meetings that brought in several hundred farmers and estimates they represent 75 to 80 percent of the growers in North Dakota involved in the case. They became involved with a lead counsel firm on the case. Initially, the case involved only those signing up, but later it became a national class action suit, providing compensation to all farmers and even agribusinesses. Donarski declined to speculate on why the settlement included ethanol makers, who theoretically may have actually benefited from cheaper corn, which is the source of damage to farmers. She said the “global settlement” was to be all-inclusive.

Forum News Service/Agweek/Mikkel Pates Corn farmers and businesses starting May 11 will start receiving notices to file to prove claims in a Syngenta corn lawsuit. A preliminary settlement agreement indicates $1.51 billion in estimated claims, including $1.438 billion for U.S. farmers who did not raise Viptera or Duracade varieties during the 2013 to 2017 years.

Bayer to sell digital farming business to BASF By Steve Davies Agri-Pulse

Bayer said it will sell its digital farming business to BASF as part of an agreement with regulators to receive approval of its acquisition of Monsanto, which is expected to be finalized in the second quarter of this year. In a statement April 11, the German company said the digital farming operation would be sold, not outlicensed, “and Bayer in return will receive a license back to certain digital farming applications.” Last month, the European Commission said it had conditionally approved the acquisition but that it was separately “assessing whether the sale to BASF itself raises any competition concerns” and would issue a decision on that by April 16. One of the agreed-upon conditions was that Bayer would license its digital farming products to another company. But the Justice Department’s reported approval of the deal earlier this week apparently forced Bayer to

agree to sell its digital farming assets instead of licensing them, according to a Reuters report on April 12. Bayer also said it would retain Monsanto’s NemaStrike but would sell other Bayer seed treatment products to BASF. In October, Bayer agreed to sell its global glufosinate-ammonium non-selective herbicide business, commercialized under the Liberty, Basta and Finale brands, as well as its seed businesses for key row crops in select markets, to BASF for about $7 billion. Here is Bayer’s full statement: “In connection with the proposed acquisition of Monsanto, we confirm that — other than was previously communicated — certain Bayer seed treatment products will be offered for sale instead of Monsanto’s NemaStrike. In addition, Bayer’s digital farming business is to be sold rather than outlicensed, and Bayer in return will receive a license back to certain digital farming applications. BASF is the

We all need a Agweek seeks ‘Flags mom squad on Farms’ tips REGIONAL NEWS

By Katie Pinke

Agweek Publisher

In my 20 years of motherhood, I’ve never felt like I’m in the cool mom’s club. In fact, there have been times my husband and I made decisions in the best interest of our children that caused us to stand out. Cookie cutter parenting is not for us. Thankfully, our kids don’t know the difference. However, there are times when we need help — and it’s in those moments when we find ourselves surrounded by other moms that we realize the value of a mom squad. In the spring, our schedules fill up more than any other time during the school year. This past month, Anika participated in pee-wee wrestling and Elizabeth in volleyball. They also take piano lessons, play on a traveling basketball team and compete in 4-H archery competitions together. One night this past week, after a day at work and school, my girls rushed home with their dad after practices to shower, and I hustled back home after a civic meeting to help them get ready for their elementary music concert. As a mom, I felt like I was winning. We sat down for a quick supper together. I was exhausted from the day, but the girls had on clean dresses, and I even had time to curl their hair. The music concert was my moment to soak it all in and listen to cute kids sing songs for an hour and a half from the comfort of a folding chair on the gymnasium floor. The fifth and sixth grade bands played and a few classes sang on stage before our second-grade daughter’s class of 25, the largest class in the school, filed on stage. The microphone was being passed down the line of students singing lines in a song when I felt a tap on my shoulder. A friend from church and fellow mom said, “Elizabeth is in the bathroom with a bloody nose and needs you.” I stood up and followed the mom, who was carrying her young son. The mom also has a child in second grade. She didn’t stop to watch her daughter say her line. She left the gymnasium to take me to my daughter who needed me. Inside the bathroom, we found Elizabeth with a bloody nose, which she gets from time to time. There was blood on her new dress and on her face. Another mom was helping her. Every day, our kids need us in small and large moments. This situation was really another ordinary moment. But this particular moment of motherhood is one I won’t soon forget. I scrubbed the blood out of Elizabeth’s dress. One of the other moms found a box of tissues so we didn’t have to use scratchy paper towels anymore. We tipped back Elizabeth’s head, put some pressure on her nose and the blood soon stopped. Before her class went onstage, she was cleaned up and ready to sing, with a handful of tissues in one hand, just in case. I have attended a lot of school concerts in my years as a mother. Twenty years from now, I won’t remember the songs the kids sang at this particular one. However, this concert will stand out because in a seemingly small moment of need, I felt like my child and I were surrounded by a mom squad — moms willing to miss their children on stage to help mine. Moms (and dads) with children of any age need some extra love and support in different stages of parenting. Thank you those willing to be helpful and share your love and support in the everyday moments.

Send in photos for a July 2 cover story By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

FARGO, N.D. — Flags on farms: When you’re looking for them, it seems like they are everywhere. Patriotism and rural life often seem linked. National pride and celebration transcend politics and is something that this region can share within communities. This spring, we’re asking Agweek readers and viewers to let us know if there is a particularly moving display of the flag in a farming or agribusiness setting that is meaningful to you. Do you or a neighbor display the flag in a special way that helps make your locale distinct? Take a high-resolution photo of it and send

it to us. Make a short video and send it in. Perhaps there is a special story about when and how the display was established. We’re planning a magazine cover story on July 2 that will include some of these photos, as well as interviews with some of the subjects. Some submissions also will be used with the AgweekTV episodes on or around Independence Day. We already have a bit of a start, but we welcome your input. There are other ways to measure patriotism — citizens who vote, the percentage who engage in military service or the number who volunteer. But we also think simply flying a U.S. flag is a sign of optimism and shows a belief in a country that farmers have a key role in. For information on the project, please contact Agweek reporter Mikkel Pates, 701-9360686, or e-mail

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Millionaire Rob Undersander sat at a Minnesota House witness stand saying he received food stamps for 19 months to prove a point: Not everyone who gets the aid needs it. Democratic legislators did not like his April 11 testimony, particularly Rep. John Considine, D-Mankato. “You knew this was wrong and you did it anyway,” Considine said while staring at Undersander. “I find it pretty despicable. .... I am just sorry there is no way we can prosecute you.” Gasps filled the nearly packed room, especially from the Republican side of the committee table. Undersander said that he got the food stamps, officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, legally because he and his wife had little income for the 19 months they took food stamps. He has plenty of assets, which he said qualifies him to be a millionaire, but assets such as property and bank accounts are not used to determine whether someone qualifies for food stamps. Only income is. Undersander was on the witness stand to support legislation by Rep. Jeff Howe, R-Rockville, that would include assets when approving food stamps. The Howe bill has further steps before reaching a full House vote. The Waite Park, Minn., millionaire, the focus of most of the Wednesday discussion, said while he received about $300 a month in food stamps some people in his area who really need the help got just $14. Rep. Laurie Halverson, D-Eagan, joined others in her party to criticize Undersander. “I am finding it incredibly offensive that $6,000 in benefits were taken,” Halvorson said. Added Rep. Jennifer Schultz, D-Duluth: “I think it is inappropriate to apply for these benefits.”

In a Forum News Service interview, Undersander said that he signed up for food stamps to “audit” the program. He and his wife accepted food stamps from the middle of 2016 to early this year. He said receiving the food stamps would do more to prove that some people get food stamps when they do not need them than if he just said it without the experience. He said that he donated the equivalent of the food stamps to charities, his church and the needy. Undersander said he accomplished his goal. “I have obviously gotten your attention,” he told lawmakers. Rep. Mary Franson, R-Alexandria, praised Undersander. “I am really sorry about the line of questioning that has been put forth, and the

New farm bill tweaks commodity title, overhauls conservation By Philip Brasher Agri-Pulse

House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway on April 12 kicked off a battle over the next farm bill by releasing draft legislation that would make some improvements to major commodity programs, while overhauling conservation policy and making sweeping reforms to nutrition assistance. The nutrition provisions, which would expand work requirements for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, led to an unusually bitter and partisan impasse that forced Conaway to delay planned committee action on the bill in March. Conaway, R-Texas, said the bill will be numbered H.R. 2, reflecting the importance of the bill to the GOP leadership. Low bill numbers are reserved for major legislation. The tax bill enacted in December was H.R. 1. “The farm bill keeps faith with our nation’s farmers and ranchers through the current agriculture recession by providing certainty and helping producers manage the enormous risks that are inherent in agriculture,” said Conaway. “The farm bill also remains faithful to the American taxpayer and consumer.” The bill would preserve the structure of the 2014 farm bill’s commodity title largely intact, while allowing farmers to choose whether to switch from the Agriculture Risk Coverage to the Price Loss Coverage program, which is expected to be far more popular in coming years. The bill also would modify PLC to raise reference prices should commodity prices rise significantly. PLC payments are triggered when market prices fall below the reference levels. Under the bill, the reference price for a commodity would be raised when the five-year moving average of market prices rises more than 15 percent above the reference level. Soybeans are the commodity most likely to be affected, but some feed grains also could benefit in future years, according to committee staff. In addition, farmers who were affected by severe drought (D4, the highest ranking) for at least 20 consecutive weeks from 2008 to 2012 would be allowed to update their PLC yield histories based on their 2013-2017 yields. Yields in the current program were set based 26 Monday, April 16, 2018 / AGWEEK

on 2008-2012 data. An estimated 400 counties would qualify for the update. ARC would be modified to reduce disparities in payments in different regions of the country. Coverage would be based on the Risk Management Agency’s yield data and commodity revenue would be separately calculated for drylands and irrigated acreage. ARC coverage also would be based on the county where a farm is physically located. The bill “strengthens the farm safety net to help farmers and ranchers weather a five-year recession, depressed prices and a 52-percent drop in net farm income,” according to a summary prepared by committee Republicans. Dairy producers’ Margin Protection Program, which was expanded in the budget agreement that Congress passed in March, would see additional changes sought by the committee’s ranking Democrat, Collin Peterson, to increase the prospect of payments. Top coverage levels for the first 5 million pounds of production would increase to $9 per hundredweight, up from the current $8 limit. To offset the cost of increasing the coverage levels, premiums would be restored at the $4.50 and $5 levels. Fees for those levels were abolished by the budget agreement. Peterson, who is now opposed to the bill because of the nutrition title, introduced the MPP changes in a separate bill this week, even though Conaway has left the provisions in his draft. Here are highlights from other sections of the bill: Conservation: The bill would make major, and widely anticipated, changes to conservation programs by folding the Conservation Stewardship Program into the Environmental Quality Incentives Program and increasing the cap on the Conservation Reserve Program from 24 million acres to 29 million acres. The increase in CRP acreage, also sought by Peterson, would be paid for by capping payments at 80 percent of county rental rates and reducing other assistance to contract holders. The changes to conservation will have numerous critics - the grain industry is strongly opposed to expanding CRP, for example - but the partisan fight over the bill’s nutrition title will swamp any battles over other sections of the bill.

The bill would fund the EQIP at $3 billion a year. EQIP and CSP are expected to cost a combined $3.1 billion in 2019. Under current law, EQIP provides cost-share assistance for new equipment and practices, while CSP provides long-term incentive payments for improved practices. The bill would simplify qualifications for the incentive payments, which would be provided to farmers who address local natural resource concerns. Up to three natural resources concerns could be identified within a region of a state. Existing CSP contracts would be allowed to continue to their expiration. The bill also would provide $250 million a year for the Regional Conservation Partnership Program, $500 million a year for the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program and $100 million annually for the Small Watershed Rehabilitation Program. A new pilot program in the bill’s conservation title would provide $100 million to control feral swine. Crop insurance: The bill extends for 10 years a higher premium subsidy for beginning farmers who purchase whole farm insurance. USDA’s Risk Management Agency is told to prioritize the development of better insurance coverage for hurricane damage. Citrus growers in Florida have complained that existing revenue policies aren’t worth the cost because of inadequate yield coverage levels. Animal health: To address concerns of the livestock industry, the bill fully funds a foot and mouth vaccine bank though only for one year. The vaccine bank is part of the bill’s new Animal Disease Response Preparedness and Response Program, a $450 million outlay over the five-year bill. The program is modeled after the Plant Pest and Disease Management and Disaster Prevention Program already in place. The bill authorizes the $150 million sought by the industry for the FMD vaccine bank, $30 million for the National Animal Health Laboratory Network, and $70 million for the National Animal Disease Preparedness and Response Program for a total $250 investment. In the following years, however, the funding drops to an annual $50 million, with $30 million for the National Animal Disease Preparedness and Response Program and $20 million for any of the three components at USDA’s discretion.

The vaccine bank – which the industry wanted to see funded at $150 million for every year - is also designated as a U.S.-only vaccine bank, a possible point of differentiation between the vaccine bank already in place shared with Canada and Mexico. Regulatory relief: The bill includes provisions that the committee says would clarify the “role of state lead agencies in promulgating pesticide regulations” and streamline reviews of potential pesticide impacts on endangered species. Research: Increases funding for the Organic Agriculture Research and Extension Initiative, which was funded at $20 million a year in the 2014 farm bill. The bill would provide no new funding for the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research, which was established with $200 million in the 2014 farm bill. The bill also seeks to streamline the reporting and planning process for formula funding provided to land-grant universities. Specialty Crops: Maintains funding at $85 million per year for Specialty Crop Block Grants. The bill also provides full funding for the Specialty Crops Research Initiative, including set-asides for citrus research and extension. Trade: The bill would combine USDA’s trade programs, including the Market Access Program and Foreign Market Development program under a new International Market Development Program funded at $255 million per year. The bill would guarantee $200 million in annual funding for MAP and no less than $34.5 million for FMD, $10 million for the Emerging Markets Program and $9 million for Technical Assistance for Specialty Crops Program. All but MAP would have no funding after this year. Combining the programs is intended to ensure that the Congressional Budget Office would consider all of the programs to have permanent funding baseline. Spencer Chase contributed to this report.

Doug Mills/ The New York Times President Trump makes remarks as he meets with governors and members of Congress about tax cuts in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, April 12, 2018.

Trump weighs rejoining Trans-Pacific Partnership

By Washington Post WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump told top administration officials April 12 to look at rejoining the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the multination trade agreement he pulled the United States out of shortly after taking office. Rejoining the pact would be a major reversal as Trump escalates a trade conflict with China. The Pacific Rim trade deal was intended by the Obama administration as a way to counter China’s influence, but Trump criticized the pact as a candidate and pulled the U.S. out of the pact in early 2017. Trump gave the new orders to U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow during a meeting with lawmakers and governors on trade issues, according to two GOP senators in attendance. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., said that he and others at the table raised the point that “if you really want to get China’s attention, one way to do it is start doing business with all the people they’re doing business with in the region: their competitors.” Trump then told Lighthizer and Kudlow to “take a look at getting us back into that agreement, on our terms of course,” Thune said. “He was very I would say bullish about that.” Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., also confirmed Trump’s surprise move. “We should be leading TPP,” Sasse said. “China is a bunch of cheaters and the best

way to push back on their cheating would be to be leading all these other rule-of-law nations in the Pacific that would rather be aligned with the U.S. than with China.” Engaging in talks to reenter the TPP would be part of a broader White House strategy to respond to an escalating trade flap between Trump and Beijing. Trump is looking for ways to crack down on what he believes are unfair trade practices in China, but he is having a hard time rallying other countries to backstop his push to impose new tariffs or raise the costs of exports and imports for China. The president is also running into strong pushback from Republican lawmakers, particularly those representing agricultural regions where China’s threatened retaliation against U.S. exports would hit hard. The TPP is a trade agreement the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia, and a number of other countries signed in early 2016, aiming to strengthen economic ties between the countries and give them more leverage in dealing with China. The agreement never went into effect, however, because Trump withdrew from it three days after he was sworn in. The remaining countries still ratified a version of the TPP without the U.S. earlier this year. Trump has never fully articulated what he opposed about the TPP, but he has shown a general reluctance to enter into multilateral

trade deals because he believes these allow the U.S. to be ripped off. “The Trans-Pacific Partnership is another disaster done and pushed by special interests who want to rape our country,” Trump said in June 2016. “Just a continuing rape of our country. That’s what it is, too. It’s a harsh word — it’s a rape of our country. This is done by wealthy people that want to take advantage of us and that want to sign another partnership.” Trump was not the only one to oppose TPP during the campaign. His Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, also said she did not plan on ratifying the deal, even after she had a role in its formation during her time as President Barack Obama’s Secretary of State. Before Trump’s election, efforts to ratify the deal had stalled in Congress. In May 2016, as domestic political support for TPP was starting to erode, Obama wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post aiming to rally support. “Increasing trade in this area of the world would be a boon to American businesses and American workers, and it would give us a leg up on our economic competitors, including one we hear a lot about on the campaign trail these days: China,” he wrote. Trump did not give Japan, one of the U.S.’s closest allies, an exemption from new steel and aluminum tariffs, making it less likely that

they would rush to the White House’s defense during a trade war. But entering into a new TPP could unify Trump with other trading partners and put new pressure on Beijing to either allow more imports into China or risk being alienated by other Asian countries, that would now received new trade benefits as part of the deal. Still, it remains to be seen what exactly Trump would want to see in a new TPP, or whether the idea is just a passing fancy for the White House or a serious initiative they plan to launch. “If it holds until this afternoon, that’s a good move,” remarked Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., a free trade advocate who was not at the White House meeting. In February, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the U.S. was interested in reentering the trade agreement, but he quickly backed off those comments, making it sound like a deal would not materialize.

Pre-emerge herbicides more needed with cold, late spring Weed stampede: Beets, other crops should re-set herbicides to May-planted crop By Mikkel Pates

Agweek Staff Writer

FARGO, N.D. — With sugar beet planting likely delayed until early May because of snow and cold, Tom Peters says farmers should set their sites on using pre-emergence herbicides to control waterhemp, and focus on that as much as they do on getting seed in the ground. “There’s this idea that — especially in a late year — we have to put all of our energy on planting, that we have to get everything planted as quickly as possible,” says Peters, Extension Service sugar beet weed specialist for both North Dakota State University and the University of Minnesota. “We’re going to get into trouble if we get some rain events and start to see some weeds emerge.” Waterhemp is a pigweed that’s moved into the Red River Valley from the south. It germinates a little later than lambsquarter, kochia and the more common redroot pigweed. It germinates and emerges about May 15 in a normal year in the southern Red River Valley and west central Minnesota. Waterhemp plants are sometimes glyphosate-resistant and sometimes not. Each

Forum News Service/Agweek/Trevor Peterson Tom Peters, extension sugar beet weed specialist based in Fargo, N.D., for the University of Minnesota and North Dakota State University, strongly urges sugar beet, corn and soybean producers to use pre-emergence herbicides to control waterhemp, due to the much-delayed planting season that will make control difficult with post-emergent herbicides.

Forum News Service/Agweek/Mikkel Pates A single waterhemp plant produces hundreds of thousands of seeds.

surviving plant can produce thousands of seed. Peters uses glyphosate for other weeds and for non-resistant waterhemp, but “you have to plan for the resistant population,” he says. Where waterhemp is “the primary concern,” Peters wants farmers to consider “staging” their planting. Within reason, that means rather than planting everything and then going back and applying herbicides, the farmer plants a field, immediately applies pre-emergence weed control, then repeats elsewhere. “I’m afraid that if we plant everything and then focus on the herbicide application later on, I’m afraid we’ll get to the same place — caught in between where weeds start to germinate and emerge before we have activated product,” Peters says. Interviewed at his NDSU office on April 11, Peters noted that was the date farmers could plant sugar beets in North Dakota and be eligible for full crop insurance indemnities and the date many farmers had planted beets the year before.

“I will be surprised if we have many acres seeded at all during the month of April,” he says.

Weeds won’t wait “Our strategy in sugar beet has been to allow the sugar beet to get to the two-leaf stage before we make our herbicide application,” Peters says. If sugar beets were planted in the normal April 15 time frame, the two-leaf stage is about May 5 to May 10. That’s not going to happen this year. “Sugar beets aren’t the right growth stage, but waterhemp is still going to germinate and emerge at the same time. Because of that, we have to change our plan.” “The bottom line is that farmers need to use a pre-emergence herbicide,” Peters says. For beets there are three or four options to consider, ranging from products incorporated into the soil to products applied to the soil at planting time and activated by rain. Peters says 35 percent of growers attending sugar beet grower seminars in January and February said waterhemp is “their

most important production challenge. It keeps creeping up,” both in percentage and distance north, Peters says. “I get a lot of questions in the Grand Forks, N.D., and Crookston, Minn., area.” Waterhemp bedevils every acre in Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative country at Renville, Minn., and every acre at Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative in Wahpeton, N.D. It’s also in an area from Ada, Minn., to Hillsboro, N.D., and southward in the American Crystal Sugar Co., area of Moorhead, Minn. “One hundred percent of the farmers are using this concept we call ‘lay-by,’ where they apply a soil-applied herbicide that is post-emergence to sugar beet and pre-emergence to waterhemp” weeds, Peters says. Roughly half of the sugar beet farmers in waterhemp areas use a pre-emergent herbicide — applied immediately after planting, before the beets emerge.

Dicamba issue It doesn’t matter if a farmer is growing sugar beets, soybeans or corn, Peters says: “Waterhemp doesn’t care. It’s going to germinate at the same time. The mindset for the corn grower is, ‘I’m going to use a pre-emergence herbicide.’ The mindset for the soybean grower is a combination of both. Some see the value of pre-emergence herbicides. I would guess the majority do not and don’t use a pre-emergence product at all.” He says the introduction of dicamba-tolerant soybean seeds created an impression that post-emergent weed control would continue to be viable. However, Peters says the pre-emergence program is actually more consistently reliable.

Compared to last week, feeder steers and heifers sold mostly steady to 5.00 higher. Some auctions that were called sharply lower last week recovered and were called sharply higher this week due to stability in the market place. The CME Cattle complex has been a driving force in the roller coaster ride of the last couple of weeks. Whenever a news item comes out that the market takes as a bullish factor; another tid-bit of news comes about and a bearish tone overtakes the positive news. Since last Friday’s close, the Live Cattle contracts were mostly 1.78 to 2.30 higher, with nearby April being 4.85 higher as convergence with the negotiated trade in the feedlots is coming closer to fruition. On Wednesday, fed cattle traded in the Southern Plains steady to 1.00 lower at 117.00 to 118.00. This afternoon in Nebraska, some early live sales there traded at 122.00. Analysts have been watching very closely the amount of cattle being purchased by packers the past few weeks. Many producers are very diligent and staying current with their marketings as cattle in the Southern Plains have been gaining very well this winter. The season has been very easy on the Kansas and TX/OK/NM feedlots, however in the Northern Plains, wet pens increase the cost of gains and decrease the yield on cattle that have had to slog through mud to get to the feedbunks. The excessive winter moisture has brought about the question of how long will it take all the calf-feds to get through the pipeline this year. Producers have been eager to fill empty pens this week. Late last Friday at Fort Pierre Livestock in Fort Pierre, SD five loads of steers weighing 809 lbs sold at 147.25. On Wednesday at Hub City Livestock in Aberdeen, SD a load of steers weighing 794 lbs sold at 151.25. Also on Wednesday at Bassett Livestock Auction in Bassett, NE a load of steers weighing 754 lbs sold at 157.00. On Thursday at Mitchell Livestock Auction in Mitchell, SD three loads of 901 lbs steers sold at 135.10. On Thursday at Ogallala Livestock Auction in Ogallala, NE a load of 611 lb steers sold at 196.50 while two loads of 669 lb steers sold at 185.25. A part load of replacement heifers in Bassett, NE weighing 778 lbs sold at 157.00. Only the steer mates to these heifers within that same 50 lb weight group could even match the price received for the females. Packers have been accepting a generous margin for this time of year and the extra incentive to harvest 600K plus per week has bolstered bottom-lines for the companies. Boxed beef has lost around 13.00 since the most recent high 3-4 weeks ago and in the face of adversity since the Easter holiday. Grills need to be fired up in the Midwest and the Northeast to get the cutout to move up. With Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day and Independence Day on the horizon, retailers are getting ready to start their spring and early summer procurement. Winter Storm Xanto this weekend is expected to bring heavy snow and blizzard conditions from the Northern Plains to the Great Lakes. and farmers are wondering if spring will ever get here this year. Named winter storms have now included an “X” name and many across the Northern Plains and New England are not wanting to have a Winter Storm Yvonne; they are tired of being cold and wet. Preliminary first quarter slaughter data has indicated heifer slaughter to be over 4 percent above a year ago and over 10 percent higher than the previous 3 year average. Beef cow slaughter is over 10 percent higher than 2017 and around 19 percent above the previous 3 year average. With all the drought locations in the United States currently, one could question just how much producers can hold on to the breeding herd with forage prices increasing exponentially this winter and spring. Auction volume this week included 58 percent weighing over 600 lbs and 44 percent heifers.

U.S. wheat crop continues to struggle The winter wheat crop is not off to a great start this spring. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has started reporting weekly conditions for the national crop, and ratings keep dropping. Just 30 percent of the crop is rated good to excellent and 35 percent is rated poor to very poor. All through the winter, the Plains were in need of some precipitation to build soil moisture reserves for the spring. That really did not ever happen in a significant way, so when the crop emerged from winter dormancy there just was not a good stand in place. Weather forecasts really have not shown much hope for some needed rain until late in the week, but considerable drought conditions will require a good amount. We saw last year’s spring wheat crop go through some major drought issues before late-season rains brought some relief and boosted yields. But until rains come, look for some support to continue.

Wheat As previously mentioned, the wheat market

supply glut swelled even more, adding 3 million metric tons to the March estimate. This puts total production to a record 759.8 million metric tons. Spring wheat planting is getting started in the U.S., with 2 percent complete compared to 6 percent for the five-year average pace

Durum continues to be firm. A forecast late in the week showed hope for some rain in parts of Kansas and Oklahoma that have been excessively dry. This pushed the market down for the day, but until rains are realized and substantial, do not expect a significant market direction change. The USDA monthly World Agriculture Supply and Demand Estimates report was released this week. It is the last report before the new crop numbers are released but still held important information for the 2017-18 crop year. For the U.S., ending stocks increased by 30 million bushels from the March report. Feed and residual usage was reduced. Additionally, the world

A26 Monday, April 16, 2018 / AGWEEK

The durum market has stayed flat ahead of planting. The WASDE Report showed a 3 million bushel reduction in ending stocks for durum. But the market seems generally unconcerned with the tighter stock levels of durum.

Canola Little has changed in the canola market. Prices were firm early in the week before finding some pressure. The WASDE report did not make any major changes for the canola outlook for the 2017-18 crop year. For the bulls, the U.S. trade spat with China has raised hopes for additional canola exports. Strong usage is being maintained through the spring as well.

Planting is just around the corner (with Canadian planting intentions to be reported on April 27), and fields are generally too wet and cold for early planting. However, the bears will note that there are large supplies from last year’s crop and record planted area is expected for 2018. Look for prices to continue to follow soybean oil for day-to-day direction but generally maintain its current range until planted area is known.

Barley The WASDE report showed a slight build in barley stocks from the previous report. There was a 5 million bushel reduction in imports, but a 10 million bushel drop in feed and residual demand more than offset lower supplies. Stocks are still considerably tighter than a year ago, when stocks were over 100 million bushels. The weekly conditions report from the USDA showed planting was off to a slower start than normal. Just 4 percent of the crop is planted compared to 8 percent a year ago and 12 percent for the five-year average.


Market volatility increases Wheat

It was a very wild week in the wheat complex as May Minneapolis futures have rebounded 61 cents from the April 3 low of $5.7175. Prospects of delayed planting and farmers switching away from spring wheat plantings gave speculative buyers the edge. The same was true in the Kansas City and Chicago contracts with condition ratings declining on the April 9 run. Weekly condition ratings showed a 2 percent decline from the previous week. Of the 18 state averages, 30 percent is rated good to excellent compared to 32 percent last week and 53 percent last year. Fair ratings also declined to 35 percent versus 38 percent last week and 34 percent last year. Poor to very poor ratings are 35 percent versus 30 percent last week and 13 percent last year. The winter wheat belt also experienced much below normal temperatures over the weekend of April 7-8 with temperatures dropping into the low 20s. This event also enticed buying. The U.S. Department of Agriculture put a damper on upward price movement with the April 10 monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report. U.S. wheat ending stocks were increased 30 million bushels to 1.064 billion bushels, which was higher than the highest trade estimate of 1.06 billion bushels. USDA stated that this was due to lower feed and residual use. World ending stocks for 2017-18 were estimated at 271.2 million metric tons which was also higher than the highest trade estimate of 270 million metric tons. This compares to USDA’s March estimate of 268.89 million metric tons. Forecasts for improved chances of rain from the National Weather Service in both the six-to-10-day and eight-to-14-day outlooks sent Kansas City and Chicago wheat futures lower in April 11 and April 12 trade. Open interest declined over 18,000 contracts in Kansas City and over 30,000 in Chicago during the last five sessions with mostly liquidation in Kansas City and short covering and rolling in Chicago. An executive for the Grain Industry Association of western Australia stated that barley acreage is expected to increase 5 to 10 percent and most of those seedings will come at the expense of wheat. Weekly export sales for all wheat totaled 6.9 million bushels with 4.4 million bushels for the 2017-18 marketing year. This puts total marketing year sales at 846.5 million bushels, 15 percent below the previous marketing year. Marketing year shipments total 710.2 million bushels, 10 percent below the previous year. For the week ending April 11, May contracts for Minneapolis wheat were up 21.75 cents at $6.29, up 15 cents at $4.8725 for Chicago wheat, and up 10 cents at $5.1675 for Kansas City wheat.

Corn The long-term trend continues to trend up as a wet, cool spring, and good export demand is giving bulls ammunition to push higher. The trade was interested in what the USDA was going to do with the U.S. stock number after they raised corn quarterly stocks as of March 1 to 8.89 billion bushels, a new record. The USDA increased U.S. ending stocks 55 million bushels to 2.182 billion bushels. This

was near the average pre-trade estimates for an increase of 60 million bushels to 2.19 billion bushels. Feed usage was lowered 50 million bushels and exports were left unchanged. The USDA lowered Brazil’s corn production to 92 million metric tons versus trade estimates of 92.7 million metric tons and USDA’s March estimates of 94.5 million metric tons. CONAB raised Brazil’s corn crop estimate 1.3 million metric tons to 88.6 million metric tons. The USDA lowered Argentina’s corn crop to 33 million metric tons versus trade estimates of 33.74 million metric tons and USDA’s March forecast of 36 million metric tons. Dry weather in Argentina and drying conditions in the southern three of Brazil’s safrina corn crop region are lowering production estimates. A lack of fresh news after the April 10 WASDE report kept prices stagnant this week. The trade is in wait-and-see mode, looking to see how widespread this next system of storms will be. The next two weeks are expected to stay cool in the Midwest which could delay planting into May for the northern parts of the Midwest. This could continue to give row crop markets support as later planting could mean lower yields and less acres for the 2018 crop. It is still early enough for planters to catch up, but the forecasts need to change in order for that to happen. In the first corn planting progress report of the year on April 9, corn was 2 percent planted versus 3 percent last year and 2 percent for the five-year average. Texas was the only state that is more than 1 percent planted at 58 percent planted. Weekly export sales of corn were disappointing as they showed a total of 35.3 million bushels, with 433.1 million bushels for the 2017-18 marketing year. Total marketing year sales are at 1.897 billion bushels, 2 percent less than the previous marketing year.

Soybeans Soybeans continue to trend higher as trade concerns eased over the weekend. November soybeans again failed to break through their contract highs this week but are still near the top end of the contract range. Fresh U.S. export sales this week show a good number of bushels and are continuing to provide support for prices, even though U.S. ending stocks are over a half billion bushels. It is important for U.S. exports to find more destinations to ship to, especially with the uncertainty over China and poor export demand for our soybeans recently. U.S. Gulf bids are considerably cheaper than Brazil port bids, and that may push typically seasonal Brazil soybean buyers to U.S.

buyers, especially countries other than China. Brazil’s free-on-board soybean prices were at $11.83 per bushel as of April 11, the highest since August 2016. This is 40-plus cents higher than U.S. Gulf bids. Delayed planting this spring is going to be the news for the next month as weather continues to stay cool and wet in most of the Midwest. It is yet to be seen how many acres will get switched to soybeans, especially from expected wheat acres. Farmers can put a lot of seed in the ground in a short time frame; it is just going to be a matter of when they actually get a start to the spring. The USDA came out with a bullish surprise in the April 10 WASDE report as they lowered U.S. ending stocks 5 million bushels to 550 million bushels versus average trade estimates that were expecting an increase of 19 million bushels to 574 million bushels. The USDA increased crush 10 million bushels and surprisingly kept exports unchanged. Average trade estimates for world ending stocks were lowered more than expected due to a larger than expected decrease in Argentina’s crop to 40 million metric tons. World ending stocks came in at 90.8 million metric tons versus pre-trade estimates of 92.9 million metric tons and 92.4 million metric tons last month. The USDA raised Brazil’s production estimates to 115 million metric tons (4.2 billion bushels) versus trade estimates of 115.25 million metric tons and USDA’s March estimates of 113 million metric tons. CONAB raised Brazil’s soybean crop 2 million metric tons to 115 million metric tons. The USDA lowered Argentina’s soy crop to 40 million metric tons (1.5 billion bushels) versus pre-report estimates of 42.6 million metric tons versus USDA’s March forecast of 47 million metric tons.

Canola For the week ending April 11, May canola futures in Winnipeg were down $9.10 Canadian at $522.70 Canadian per metric ton. The Canadian dollar was up .0012 to .7954. This brings the U.S. price to $18.86 per hundredweight. The Canadian dollar remains in an uptrend, making U.S. prices more attractive ► Velva, N.D., $18.65 per hundredweight, September at $17.68. ► Enderlin, N.D., $19.44 per hundredweight, September at $18.32. ► Hallock, Minn., $18.83 per hundredweight, September at $17.94. ► Fargo, N.D., $19.55 per hundredweight, September at $18.40.

Barley Cash feed barley bids in Minneapolis were at $2.85, while malting barley received no quote. The Berthold, N.D., bid is $2.60 and the CHS Southwest New Salem, N.D., bid is $2.90.

Durum Cash bids for milling quality durum are $6 in Berthold and at $5.75 in Dickinson, N.D.

Sunflower Cash sunflower bids in Fargo were at $17.80, October at $18.60. For the week ending April 11, soybean oil was down 4 cents at $31.53 on the May contract. Monday, April 16, 2018 / AGWEEK
