WOTUS Has Been a Learning Process for EPA
Sat, 01 Nov 2014
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack believes the debate over the Waters of the United States has been healthy—for supporters and critics. While at the National FFA Convention, US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said this has been a learning process for the EPA. “The intent was actually to create greater certainty for agriculture and to reassure agriculture that this was not going to extend the jurisdiction. It was designed to provide clarity. The folks in the countryside did not interpret it that way. It’s a lesson for EPA. I have no doubt that this process will have an impact on what EPA’s final, final, final decision is going to be.” At the end of the day, Vilsack said agriculture is only a small part of the country’s water quality concerns.

ND Corn Harvest Making Steady Progress
Fri, 31 Oct 2014
Mycogen agronomist Bruce Due says the corn harvest is making steady progress in North Dakota. “I would say the eastern half is 30 percent done and not quite as much to the west. The moisture has really come down nicely. I’m getting reports of 16 to 21 percent. Yields are all over the place. Depending on how early it froze. There are some areas that have low test weights, but, at least it’s coming out of the field without having to put a lot of expense to it with the dryer.”
