Todd E. Gleason

This is the worst soil I have ever seen, at least at this pineapple field. They tilled them with track hoes. Really I am not kidding. Here's some more videos of what we've been up to this week.

Illinois County Yields & GRIP-HR Payments

Gary Schnitkey & Todd Gleason

Listen

(Duration: 5:35)

Shows the potential 2012 GRIP-HR Crop Insurance Payments to be made at 90% Coverage / 100% Protection levels.

The National Agricultural Statistical Service (NASS) recently released county yields for corn and soybeans for 2012. These yields confirm drought significantly lowered 2012 production, with extremely low corn yields in southern Illinois.

GRIP-HR payments can be estimated now that yields have been released. The graphic shows potential 2012 GRIP-HR Crop Insurance Payments to be made at  the 90% Coverage / 100% Protection levels.

Most Illinois counties will be elgible for GRIP-HR payments on corn. Fewer counties will have GRIP-HR payments for soybeans. Todd Gleason spoke with University of Illinois Farm Management Specialist Gary Schnitkey. You may listen to the interview, or read detailed information using the links below.
