Do Producers Have to Plant In Drought Conditions- and we have your SUNUP preview

Thu, 15 Sep 2011 16:16:48 CDT

Do Producers Have to Plant In Drought Conditions- and we have your SUNUP preview Grain Marketing Specialist from Oklahoma State University Dr. Kim Anderson sat down with Austin Moore to discuss the most recent changes with crops, including wheat and canola, details of crop insurance and the drop in the wheat prices. With a lot of changes this year due to drought, producers need to pay attention to detail.

When it comes to canola, Anderson says many producers are hoping to dust-in a canola crop and then follow with wheat. However, producers need to remember deadlines and dates. The final planting date for canola is October 10th and the acreage reportage date is Decemeber 15th. Anderson says for producers to get a loss claim on canola, it has to be after December 15th, which does not leave much time to go back with wheat.

Of course the drought has cause a lot of confusion on what producers need to do and if they have to plant into drought conditions. Anderson says the ruling that has been submitted to Kansas City states that if a producer can document with National Weather Service data that a drought has occurred and is in progress during planting times, then they do not have to plant.

Besides Dr. Anderson, also this week on SUNUP, Gary McManus describes the La Nina weather pattern and explains why its return signals a warm, dry winter and spring with continued drought.

With conditions likely to persist, Dave Lalman and Chad Godsey have management strategies for cattle and crop producers.

Next, Dave Shideler breaks down the drought's financial toll on Oklahoma and the impact on rural communities.

Derrell Peel projects what the lack of wheat pasture could mean for the cattle industry and how corn prices are impacting the feeder cattle market.

Glenn Selk advises producers on the most effective ways to limit-feed hay, and which cattle best benefit from this practice.

In the Mesonet report, Al Sutherland and the team analyze the recent hot weather and predict when we could see the first freeze.

In Shop Stop, Randy and Wayne explain the benefits of using good floor mats while working on a project.

Finally, we travel to Woods County to talk with Todd Trennepohl and meet the couple honored with one of the 2011 Outstanding Young Farmers national awards.

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