Corn prices slowing wheat exports, expert tells Montana grain growers

Drought-induced high corn prices have increased wheat demand but decreased U.S. exports with wheat prices currently uncompetitive in the world market, an expert told hundreds of Montana grain growers Wednesday in Great Falls, the hub of state’s top wheat growing region.

“Really the story of wheat this year is about corn,” said Mike Wong, senior vice president and merchandising manager for Columbia Grain Inc. in Portland, a leading world grain exporter.

Trend in Corn Yields (1866 to 2016)

Trend in Corn Yields (1866 to 2016) | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar) | Scoop.it
Every five years or so it is important to examine corn yield trends. Historically, there have been only two instrumental developments leading to leaps in yield levels. At about the same time, nitrogen fertilizers and hybrid corn converged, creating the increases in corn production shown on the graph below in the late 1930’s. And since, there has been no similar revolutionary event to explain such changes, because they have not occurred. Even in the era of biotechnology for the past 20 plus years.

 A new nanoparticle-based fertilizer delivers plant nutrients efficiently : the urea-hydroxyapatite

 A new nanoparticle-based fertilizer delivers plant nutrients efficiently : the urea-hydroxyapatite | Bisaillon Ressources : News ( corn maize ethanol DDG soybean soymeal wheat livestock beef pigs canadian dollar) | Scoop.it
Urea is a common nitrogen source in fertilizer, but it quickly breaks down into ammonia, which rainfall quickly flushes away. To account for that loss, farmers need to apply extra fertilizer to crops, which is expensive—especially for developing regions of the world where food supplies are unstable and populations are growing. Ammonia also can lead to harmful algal blooms in waterways and can enter the atmosphere as nitrogen dioxide, a potent greenhouse gas, says Gehan Amaratunga, an engineer at the University of Cambridge. Fertilizers that slow down the release of urea have multiple benefits. Slow-release fertilizers are available and consist of urea coated in water-insoluble sulfur or polymers. Such fertilizers reduce runoff, but they are expensive for general agricultural use and haven’t been shown to actually increase crop yield. Amaratunga and his colleagues decided to try a new strategy: They attached urea molecules to nanoparticles of hydroxyapatite, a naturally occurring form of calcium phosphate found in bone meal. Hydroxyapatite is nontoxic and a good source of phosphorous, which plants also need. Similar techniques have been used to create slow-release nanomedicines, Amaratunga says. In water, the urea-hydroxyapatite combination released nitrogen for about a week, compared with a few minutes for urea by itself. In field trials on rice in Sri Lanka, crop yields increased by 10%, even though the nanofertilizer delivered only half the amount of urea compared with traditional fertilizer. The scientists have also tested the fertilizer with maize, wheat, and tea plants. Amaratunga says the application regime—an initial application, followed by monthly reapplications—mirrors traditional methods of fertilization but requires far less substance. The cost of making the nanofertilizer is slightly higher than for conventional fertilizer, but that is offset by the reduction in the amount of fertilizer needed—and the environmental benefits of less runoff, Amaratunga says. The researchers say they expect the cost to come down as they scale up the manufacturing processes.

Local farmers have been reacting to a letter Senator Ben Sasse sent to the Trump Administration, warning a trade war with Mexico could be devastating for Nebraska growers.

Amid recent politics and tensions with Mexico, President Donald Trump has talked about renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) or simply getting rid of it.
