Its obvious the trade knows.....

If the trade would have known 2 months ago at this date our crop conditions would be this good and nearly in, then we would be tradin @ the $4.50 everbody talked about dont ya think???.  Its obvious the trade doesnt currently believe the USDA or any tabulator, merchant or whoever provides info to the USDA.   The REAL boys have access to sats in the sky and any tech image you can think of.

What are/were those satalites really looking at? ---------------- enquiring minds want to know---

 

Surely a government contractor can reveal the details --------- 

 

Makes my top ten list of waisted technology.

Do you really believe that satellite images will permit detailed enough views to make market moving decisions?

Years ago infrared satalite photography was promoted as potentially giving a better idea of crop health and yield potential than visual inspection.

Re: Its obvious the trade knows.....

Satellites can read license plates and can sometimes even tell faces.  I don't think we have access to those.

 

The CIA has been trying to use satellite inagery for 40 years to read crop conditions in foreign lands.  If satellite imagry was the key, it would seem to me every analyst and professor would be watching the download.

 

Theh drone boys are saying the same thing about infra red and everything else.  I don't know of anyone who is using infra red.  Maybe it's not ready for prime time?
