A USDA-NASS employee was threatened on a Iowa farm. Security has been increased ! Interesting tour for sure.

Sad state of affairs but it's really not that surprising.

The USDA reports that everyone knows are complete lies harm a lot of people financially. Someone will eventually snap.

Wasn't me!

I guess I thought it was on an Illinois farm but may have misheard.

I'd like to know the context of the threat which seems to be kept awfully quiet. Was a USDA/NASS guy threatened himself for the bogus reports or did they wonder onto the "wrong guys" land without permission and were threatened.

The PFT is interesting to watch but could be handled much better. I this day and age it would only take a few minutes to track down landowner/tenet and get proper permission to access property. It would go over much better than trespassing onto someones land and stealing their property. Minor in the scope of events but some have a low trigger point.

Edit: Correction: Just saw that it was Around Corralville, IA.

Question for Captain USA
Do you agree with the yield estimates for Soybeans on the pro farmer tour. According to my market information they are too high. How is the bean crop filling. Is there still 46 bushel crop out there. I heard some beans have not podded yet. September is starting out pretty cool and thought some heat is still needed. What are your thoughts on the bean and corn crop thus far. Is frost a real concern. Our prime minister here in Canada really screwed our canola and soybean markets and was wondering if the US crop is struggling even if demand is down should a guy apply a call option to his bean contracts. Was reading this morning Argentina is starting too plant their bean crop, and China is hoping for a bumper crop out of Brazil and Argentina. You Know it was just one year ago Canada was in China s good books. If we get four more years of Justin trudeau I honestly don't know what market we will have left.
very FRUSTRATING, When governments stand in the way of supply and demand.
To bad about the threatened USDA -Nass EMPLOYEE, but I am sorry if the crop tour results are anything like our AG CANADA crop surveys they are a joke and not to be taken seriously!

not only to get permission but just to know whats going on in the field. you don't know if a plane had been there that morning spraying insecticide or not....
