OSU's Kim Anderson Says Now is the Time to decide What Crops to Plant over the Next Year

Thu, 10 Sep 2020 16:33:39 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Says Now is the Time to decide What Crops to Plant over the Next Year Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.

This week Dr. Anderson is talking about how producers should decide what crops to plant. Dr. Kim Anderson says right now many producers are putting the pencil to determine which crop to plant over the next year, "The one piece of information they have is the price over the next five years. Now, I've made those estimates and if you look at wheat, its about $4.75 cents, corn, $3.60 cents. Grain sorghum $3.35 cents, Cotton .65 cents, Soybeans, $8.60 and Sesame .35 cents." Anderson said prices are relatively low for all these crops, but you also need to take in account your machinery, location, soil conditions, and your management abilities to decide what is right for your farm.

- Kim Anderson says producers need to figure machinery, soil quality and management practices into selecting crops in the near future.
