Compared to last week: Trade activity moderate on moderate demand. According to the NASS Crop Progress report June 15, 2020, in Tulare County, harvesting of winter grain plants such as wheat, oats and barley was completed. However, some winter grain fields remained for dried grain harvest. Some winter grains, especially oats were being cut, dried and baled for hay. Cotton fields were being cultivated and irrigated. Fields were being fertilized and tilled for corn and sorghum planting as well as cultivated for weeds. Alfalfa continued to be irrigated, cut, dried and baled. In Fresno County, herbicide applications were on-going in barley and oat fields as needed. Cotton emerged due to warmer weather. Wheat for fodder, sorghum, triticale, and winter wheat forage was being harvested for dairy feed and cover crop. Harvested fields were disked and cultivated for re-planting of more forage crops. Rice fields were growing well. A few mustard fields were mowed, and safflower fields were drying down in anticipation for harvest. The rice crop was progressing at a normal pace in the Sacramento Valley. Hay is reported FOB the stack or barn unless otherwise noted. Regions are defined at bottom of report.
