Yet, nearly everyday, one can go out into a N Iowa morning, and see the Chem-Trails left by the USDA Sanctioned attempts at "Geo-Engineering" the weather. The question no one is asking? Is this helping or actually mitigating the drought conditions? Perhaps it's time someone brought some answers forward-n'est pas?

While MOST farmers aren't afraid of their own shadow, we do have to wonder why we can read about the calamities of climate change one day and then the early prediction of bumper crops the next. Somebody appears to be asleep at the wheel, and after last year's yield/price prediction fiasco, I think I know who!

I can only hope for a huge crop as a farmer and a consumer. We need to build our nations grain reserves back for security reasons as well as for a nation of wealth an milk and honey. This may sound un business like but I am doing everything I can think of to keep corn prices down by producing all the bushels I can muster out. If it takes higher bushels to bring down corn prices then so be it. I'm ready for a huge crop. Warren Hardy, Seven Springs NC
