Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour

August 19, 2013

We'll take time each day this week during the Closing Market Report to hear updates from the 21st Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour. We'll also post the audio into this page and on Twitter @CommodityWeek. If you are a Twitter user, maybe even Facebook now that it is possible to search hashtags (#) on that service, look for #PFTour13 for posts from crop scouts on the tour. 

Friday Chip Flory will join us for Commodity Week as our guest. He'll confirm the numbers from the tour, and the adjusted estimates to be made by Pro Farmer. Commodity Week airs on WILL AM580 each Saturday at 6:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
