In tonight’s Evening Edition, learn the latest about the USDA WASDE Report, pest management tools, and manufacturing of electric tractors.

USDA WASDE Report

Today USDA released the latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report.

Editor Cassidy Walter reports the data. For corn, the USDA pegged the U.S. 2022-23 projected ending stocks at 1.470 billion bushels vs. the trade estimate of 1.433 billion bushels.

For soybeans, the U.S. ending stocks were 230 million bushels vs. the trade's expectation of 214 million bushels today and 280 million bushels in June.

Pest Management

Changes in weather conditions and chemical use has impacted field crop pest outbreaks throughout the United States, writes Editor Chelsea Dinterman.

Kevin Rice, University of Missouri (MU) Rice gave Missouri farmers an overview of what to expect this year at a field day hosted by MU last week.

For example, working with a knowledgeable chemical representative when making fall armyworm decisions is crucial. “They’re called armyworms because they move in and devastate a field like an army,” Rice said. “Personally, I would go for something that you know works on fall armyworms, because they are so devastating so fast.”

Electric Tractors

Solectrac, makers of electric tractors, are partnering with Nolan Manufacturing to establish an East Coast production facility to meet increased demand for electric tractors.

Editor Alex Gray reports that Nolan’s 10,000-square-foot facility in Denton, North Carolina will allow Solectrac to scale operations.

The primary production at Nolan Manufacturing will be Solectrac’s e25 electric tractor with additional models slated for future production.
