    In harmony with kanellop's agriculture/weather postings (which I have found to be very informative - keep it up!), the USDA NASS provides these maps of planted acreage, harvested acreage, yield per acre, and production acreage by county.

    http://www.nass.usda.gov/Charts_and_Maps/Crops_County/index.asp

    When comparing observed and forecasted precipitation and temperature reports, having a mental image of these maps overlaid in your mind can help you form a more accurate picture of what crops are receiving (or not receiving, as is the case this year) rainfall and suitable temperatures.

    Hello.

    I am around here and watch the Grains and their tremendous and powerful price rally.

    In general, i am trying to read many things and from different Internet Sources relative to them without to pay much Money.

    Also, try to trade the Grains very carefully.

    I have some very small Positions right now in Corn, Soybeans and Long Spread Wheat between Kansas City and Chicago.

    Market in Wheat had put me out,

    but i watch the things as best i can relative to it.

    Now, easily, someone can lose tremendous Amounts of Money in tremendous Short Period of Time in Grains Trading.

    Kind Regards,

    George Kanellopoulos.
