CHATHAM, ONTARIO, July 17, 2019 – AGRIS Co-operative has announced today that they are re-opening the co-operative’s Wheatley elevator location for this fall’s soybean harvest. “Producers, particularly in Essex County experienced extremely difficult planting conditions this spring which saw them switch many of their traditional corn acres to soybeans,” says Jim Campbell, general manager for AGRIS Co-operative. “Working closely with input from our three local Essex County board of directors, we have decided to re-open our Wheatley elevator which will provide our owners and customers another viable delivery point for their fall harvest,” added Campbell.
Very hot and dry conditions dominated the central and eastern U.S. Friday afternoon. Precipitation was confined to the far northern Midwest and to portions of the Southeast. Temperatures ranged from the upper 50s in the southwestern Canadian Prairies to the mid 90s at numerous locations in the central and southern Plains and the south Atlantic coast. » More DTN Weather Commentary
