In tonight's Evening Edition, read about the hurricane season outlook, challenges facing the pork industry, and double-cropping winter wheat this fall.

Pork Industry

Editor Madelyn Ostendorf reports on news from the World Pork Expo this week.

Intertwined with all the other issues facing the pork industry, says Steve Meyer, an economist with Partners for Productions Agriculture by EverAg, is the need for your operation to be profitable. He addressed some of the key factors currently influencing the market.

At the top of the list are production costs, which Meyer does not project to improve soon, writes Ostendorf.

Hurricane Season

Trouble is brewing in the Atlantic Basin as we face yet another more-active-than-normal hurricane season, reports Krissy Klinger, with Weathertrends360.

The risk of hurricanes making landfall in the United States this season is significant. As the past few seasons have shown, the impact of tropical systems can impact agriculture.

Weathertrends360 forecasts an above-normal number of tropical cyclones in the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season.

Winter Wheat

Nearly three of every 10 farmers with experience growing wheat and soybeans in one season say they will sow more winter wheat this fall, said a Purdue University poll on Tuesday.

Double-cropping wheat and soybeans would mean larger wheat production in the United States and would help buffer the disruption in world food supplies created by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Plantings of double-crop soybeans are the largest during periods of high prices.
