USDA dropped an updated WASDE report on the markets today, finally with them giving growers a slightly less bearish number than analysts were anticipating, and there was a little bounce in both the corn and bean markets. Plus, heavy weather is impacting much of the US, with Hurricane Michael hitting the southeast and snow falling on parts of North and South Dakota. Also, we shine a light on soybean cyst nematodes, one of the most devastating crop pests in the US. Mike and Delaney spoke with Greg Tylka from Iowa State University and Kaitlyn Bissonnette from University of Missouri about the threat and what growers need to be thinking about as they get ready to make seed buying decisions for 2019.

Well, our ears are still ringing from last night's rally with President Trump in support of his declaration that E15 will be able to be sold year round. The crowd was very fired up, and, though the rally was certainly more of a campaign rally to aid Republican candidates in Iowa and Nebraska, the President did make a few comments that relate to agriculture, so we'll play those today.Plus, next week begins the annual World Food Prize event and along with that comes the Global Farmer Network Roundtable, an event Delaney and Mike were excited to participate in last year. This year, we'll also connect with growers from around the world next week, but today, founder Mary Boote tells the story of how this program came to be.

This Tuesday was a big day for the western side of Iowa, as President Trump brought his campaign-style rally to Council Bluffs to celebrate the announcement of E15 sales around the year, rather than restricting sales during the summer months because of an outdated RVP issue.Mike and Delaney went to Council Bluffs to cover the rally, and will be bringing clips from that event tomorrow, in the meantime, they stopped by Growth Energy's E15 bus and chatted with Ray Gaesser and Curt Mether about what E15 sales year round might mean for them as Iowa corn growers, and we got their thoughts on the ongoing trade disputes around the world.

Happy #MarketMonday! Delaney brings us up to date on a swine disease outbreak in Brazil, plus Soybean processors in Brazil are beginning to run in negative territory, China pumps more money into the economy, and wet weather continues across the corn belt. Plus a look at where the markets are heading with Zaner Group's Chief Market Agricultural Strategist Ted Seifried!

Hard to believe it, but another Friday is here! Today's news is all over the place, with a trade update from the EU and Canada, low coffee prices, and new information about ancient sorority girls that Delaney is excited to report.And, with the continuing run of rain and chilly temps in the Western corn belt, we figured it was time to talk to our good friend Ed Vallee from Ed Vallee Weather Consulting about what to expect in the weeks ahead; both in the US, and in South America.

Delaney is covering the news while Mike is bringing a great interview with fellow farm broadcaster, Max Armstrong! Delaney discusses current updates with NAFTA, Farm Bill, JBS, and rural America's sentiment and thoughts in a current poll about President Trump and Mike brings it home by getting Max's thoughts on many of these issues and more!

News from all corners of the globe today! America's Ambassador to China Terry Brandstad answers back to the Chinese Daily "Ad-vertorial" put in this weekend's Des Moines Register; geographical indicator usage gets a little more clear in light of NAFTA 2.0; and Canada makes a run for LNG market domination.Plus, host of the Working Cows podcast Clay Conry just spent a week in Washington DC working with and talking to legislators, so he brings us a common sense rancher's take of how things are looking in our nation's capitol.

Could Pennycress, that pesky field weed, have the potential to be a paying cash crop for farmers? Find out in today's #TechTuesday discussion with Cris Handel from Arvegenix Inc. Today's top headlines include a new Climate and satellite data system to track yield numbers, could this be a new way to challenge the USDA? NAFTA 2.0 seems to have some pro's for poultry, dairy, and wheat producers; and President Trump's recent phone call with India over the possibility of a Free Trade Agreement. Plus more!

Happy Fri-YAY, errybody! Though it doesn't feel much like a Fri-yay for growers in the upper midwest; rain, cold temps, and a bearish quarterly grain stocks report really put a damper on the celebrations today. However, we bring the news, regardless of whether it's good or bad. And news we have! Seafood trade with China has been impacted by tariffs, Delaney updates us on the QGS report, and she brought us a talk held yesterday at the KC Outlook Forum by Gregg Doud, Underecretary of Agriculture, and his focus is on trade. He outlines some of the opportunities and challenges facing this administration with regard to trade. Be sure to subscribe, and over the weekend go back and listen to all of the great past episodes!

Happy Thursday everyone; Delaney is down in Kansas City today covering the KC Ag Outlook Forum and will be bringing us more updates from that tomorrow. In the meantime, I have a quick cut of Bill Northey's address wherein he discusses how the Market Facilitation program was designed. We also have an update from reporter Bruce Gaarder with Darcy Maulsby, an author, farmer, and storyteller, about how to best get the story of modern agriculture out to the people who buy our stuff.
