Well hello everyone, this is Bill Cook and I’m reporting with BigYield today. They’ve asked me to talk a little bit about what is going on out here in agriculture.

I don’t think there’s any question we’ve had one of the wettest springs in history and it’s causing a lot of problems. There are a lot of things going on with farms. One thing we’ve seen is farmers are trying to figure out whether to plant short season or what they are going to do. Talk to your federal crop people about what opportunities are there with federal crop.

There’s no question this is going to be a tough year, but there are some things you can do to protect your crop. On the things you have out there planted, it’s going to be really important that you figure out ways to get the best yield out of those.

Again, this is a year that I haven’t seen for – I’ve been doing this for 40 or 50 years and this is the wettest year I have seen. Think about scaling in some prices because prices are going up. Take advantage of these prices as they go up on corn and soybeans. There are a lot of things going on in the commodity market, so take a hard look at all of your opportunities out there.

Be sure to check out federal crop, and don’t forget, whatever you have to do to manage the crop that you have in the field, take advantage of that because it looks like it might be a valuable crop this fall.

This is Bill Cook with BigYield, wishing you a really great summer. We’ll get through this – we’ve gotten through it before. We empathize with you guys out there fighting this fight. Especially you river bottom farmers, we give you our blessings all we can and if we can help you in any way please call BigYield because we really care about you. Hopefully we get through this summer in good shape and hope to get off to a better start next year.

Thank you very much and remember BigYield is here for you.
