Only 50 days till Spring! For everyone shoveling out or dealing with frigid temperatures, the countdown to the first day of Spring means relief is in sight. It also means that you should start thinking about crop insurance. March 15th (sales closing) will be here before we know it! This is the deadline to update and make any changes to your insurance program.
FSA offices have reopened. The offices will be operating under normal business hours through February 8th and then we will have to see if they get a permanent agreement to prevent another government shutdown..

Originally the MFP had a January 15th deadline but has been extended until February 14th. If you haven’t reported your production to the FSA office yet it would be a good idea to get that done soon.

FINALLY! China approves the Enlist E3 soybeans! This is fantastic news for farmers everywhere! Enlist E3 soybeans are soybeans that have a triple-stacked tolerance to 3 different herbicides. These herbicides are, 2, 4-D choline, glyphosate (Round-Up), and glufosinate (Liberty). It adds another weapon we can use to help fight the war on weeds. Which, as we all know, is a never-ending battle.
Right now, there are a few different herbicides that are approved to use on Enlist E3 soybeans. There’s Enlist Duo, which is a tank mix of 2,4D choline and glyphosate. There’s also Enlist One, which is just a straight formula of the 2,4-D choline. Both can be tank mixed, but they must be mixed with approved herbicides. That list can be found on enlisttankmix.com.
