Market to Market 3537

Production on this week’s Market to Market #3537 is well underway.

Big stories on the program include:

  • Senate’s climate change bill.
  • BP Congressional hearing
  • Ken Cook on subsidies

Market analysis will likely talk about the cold and wet weather that is gripping much of the midwest’s corn belt.

We received a couple of pictures from farmers out there of their corn looking a little wet and cold. Do you have any you want to share? Drop them into the comments or send them to us via our Twitter feed at

For the record, we do know what WASDE stands for. World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates.

See you this weekend.
