We are on the eve of harvest as farmers look to finishing up preparation for the harvest. Roadside mowing for the last time was the main event last week. My neighbor pushed his pencil for figuring next year’s crop profits. He said with ALL inputs higher, along with machinery, fuel and labor expense, this indicates he would need 200 bushels per acre at $4.95 to break even. Seems like everyone wants a piece of the pie when commodities price go up. Crops are ripening but still a couple weeks out. Mulberry trees seem to have become more invasive over the past few years. They grow everywhere. We learned in freshman ag class the definition of a weed: A plant out of place - hence the Mulberry trees. Hurricane Ida really put a damper on exports reflecting to lower prices.
