Evening Edition | Tuesday, November 8, 2022

In tonight's Evening Edition, read about carbon capture for the ethanol industry, soil compaction issues, and forecasted farm production.

Farm Production

The U.S. economy will slow in the new year, constrained by sharply higher interest rates, at the same time that farmers and ranchers expand production, projected the Agriculture Department on Monday. 

Prices for most commodities — including corn, soybeans, wheat, and hogs — would decline somewhat from this year’s elevated levels but remain comparatively high.

Read on for information about expected farm income in 2023 and 2024.

Carbon Capture

Editor Cassidy Walter reports on the National Carbon Capture Conference and how representatives in the industry see a future with sequestration pipelines.

For example, Summit Carbon Solutions says CCS can reduce an ethanol plant's carbon intensity score by 30 points and has the potential to help plants reach net-zero emissions by the end of the decade.

Soil Compaction

Compacted sidewalls cut germination, cause uneven seed emergence, restrict root growth, and stunt seedlings.

Establishing a healthy root system is the goal.

Read on for tips to employ if planting shallow, using spiked closing wheals, and when monitoring down pressure.
