Recent rainfall across Oklahoma has chipped away at drought-stricken areas, bringing some relief to cattle ranchers. But full recovery is still a ways away, said Derrell Peel, an extension livestock marketing specialist for Oklahoma State University. With dried-up ponds and little to no forage, the drought has forced some ranchers to sell their livestock early for the past two years.

The weather has swung to the other extreme and some crops, such as peas, on light land are struggling for water. One worry for winter cereals is that those with poorly developed roots resulting from a wet spring may mean crops are less resiliant to a prolonged dry spell. In the South West, poor patches […]

Disagreements between merchants, hauliers and industry groups are causing major disruption to the introduction of digital grain passports – the “paperwork” used to track individual consignments of combinable crops along the supply chain.

My school reports seemed to focus on my underperformance. So being “criticised” for overperformance in my recent natural capital audits brought a smirk of irony.
