Critically Essential: The Movement of Grain in the Treasure State

Typically, this time of year at the Montana Wheat and Barley Committee (MWBC), we would be planning for the many international visitors that come to scout Montana fields each summer, tour our elevators, and learn more about the quality we have to offer in our small grains. However, these activities have been pushed back to later in the year due to the travel ban. In the meantime.....

Crop Progress, Tight Planting Window Available

The snow melted, moisture conditions improved, and planting progress advanced. The state is now 94% planted based on last years acreage. The first week of November has shown to be fair planting conditions. Snow and rain are expected this weekend. I anticipate in the next couple days winter wheat planting will end. The next question is how will we compare to last years acreage? MWBC anticipates Montana’s acreage to be like last year if not slightly higher. Producers are motivated to get more acres in especially from the recent rallies.
