Interesting.  This would be mostly where, Texas?  Do you think it would displace corn acres?  What is the source of your info?

Thank goodness we have Beck's to give us options. We can almost pick a price point and buy what we want. Some triples are down to $140/bag with all the discounts.

Re: Record seed sales in SW

sorry ray, i didn't ask about the "cheap stuff", but looks like a friend from ill found out.

 

i have to say, there is growing interesting of doing double crop corn here...yes, planting short season corn following wheat, on the

upland...

usually do about 60 to 90 bu corn.  they are using OP, or simular corns.  Look like some of that is $85 to $125 a bag, with nothing

special.....a fellow did it half a mile from us, and was shocked...but then again, certain fields got over 40 inchs of rain last year

(yet the ground is like concrete now).

i really don't know what they are using for a herbicide program, can't be much, same with fert....

 

some talk now on canola...but would have to haul it a couple hundred miles...and some problems yet.

Re: Record seed sales in SW

quite a bit....and alot of it is white corn too .

bet there"s 10x more seed corn sourced in Mexico then on into the US vs the tradit stuff the midwesterners are thinkin.

 

Mexico is thee largest corn buyer of usa grown corn.

there"s a cattle feeding boom underway there now.

 

ie import the grain import extra feeder cattle as needed and feed em and process em in Mexico.

 

times a changin.  MO.
