DTN Weather Summary
Heavy Rain for Southern Plains Friday
Bryce Anderson (Bio) – DTN Meteorologist

Moderate to heavy rain is in store for the Southern Plains Friday. The rain will bring more soil moisture improvement, but is unfavorable for heading and ripening wheat. Some damage in wheat heads is already reported. Dry conditions will cover the rest of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions, allowing for some planting progress and crop development. Southeast areas will see some heat stress with a dry and very warm to hot pattern. » More DTN Weather Commentary

Farmers in South Dakota question why two strong cooperatives are aggressively moving forward with plans to merge when the local elevators offer them the best opportunity to compare prices and have multiple locations to deliver grain.

The country's unparalleled farming boom made paper millionaires out of many of Mato Grosso's pioneers. DTN's Marcia Zarley Taylor and Alastair Stewart reexamine the boom years and what's ahead for Brazil's soybean growth as the frontier marks middle age.
