Crop Insurance is Essential Now and in 2012 - and we have your SUNUP preview

Thu, 08 Sep 2011 13:52:19 CDT

Crop Insurance is Essential Now and in 2012 - and we have your SUNUP preview Grain Marketing Specialist from Oklahoma State University, Dr. Kim Anderson, sat down and talked with Lyndall Stout on the current situation in the wheat marketplace. Anderson says that while producers are usually watching the Kansas City Board of Trade July 2012 contract price, this year they are watching the July 2012 price to determine what the crop insurance price will be.

This year is different than most years due to the extreme drought and weather conditions that producers across the state faced and are continuing to face as they get ready for fall planting. Anderson says the best marketing option for producers because of this unusual year is crop insurance. Anderson says given the odds that we are going to have a below average crop, crop insurance is the number one option.

Anderson again stresses the importance of paperwork with crop insurance agents and the Farm Service Agency. Producers also need to be aware of the fall planting dates, which vary by region across the state, says Anderson. Click on the LISTEN bar below to hear the rest of Lynall and Dr. Anderson's conversation on crop insurance, record keeping and planting dates.

Besides, Dr. Anderson, also this week on SUNUP, we gear up for fall planting.

First, Jeff Edwards talks about seed supplies and challenges producers may face planting winter wheat during the drought.

Then, Brett Carver discusses wheat varieties, and Josh Bushong updates the canola situation.

In Shop Stop, Randy Taylor and Wayne Kiner show producers how to index metering cups on drills to help better distribute seed.

In the Mesonet report, Al Sutherland and Cindy Luttrell take a look at the cooler temperatures and recent rains.

In Cow-Calf Corner, Glenn Selk explains the value of Vitamin A supplements during the drought.

Finally, Dwayne Elmore talks about the impact of domestic cats on wildlife in Naturally Speaking.

SUNUP airs Saturdays at 7:30 a.m. on your local OETA channel.
