In this Evening Edition, read about a pollinator habitat program, the futures market, and the supply of grain in Ukraine.

Futures Market

Markets can move for many different reasons.

"This simple concept of price change is predicated on the idea that when prices move higher, there are more buyers than sellers. That’s when buyers must bid higher to find sellers," writes Bryan Doherty at Total Farm Marketing.

Pollinator Habitat

The Seed a Legacy program, created by the Bee and Butterfly Habitat Fund, was started to bring life back to pollinator habitats.

Editor Alex Gray reports that the program enables landowners to make use out of the unproductive parts of land, turning ditches and field corners into habitats for pollinators.

The program provides free seed mixes for properties with a minimum of two acres where existing vegetation has been fully terminated.

Around 20 million tons of last year's grain harvest will be exported.
