Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News The Key to Higher Corn and Soybean Prices But Congressional leaders say right now the votes re not there to pass TPP. US Trade Representative Darci Vetter says farmers need to start pressing lawmakers now if they want to get TPP passed later this year, “This is an election year, trade is a sensitive issue, so clearly this plays into those politics.” She said, however, if you just look at the calendar, you can see there is a very short time window to gain support for the agreement. “We need to start changing hearts and minds how.” President Obama is a strong supporter of TPP but may not be in office when the vote in Congress comes. When asked where TPP stands now, House Speaker Paul Ryan said, “Right now I don’t see the votes there for TPP, because I think the administration negotiated an agreement that has some problems in it, has some flaws in it; and they’re going to have to figure those out and work those out if they want to get the votes to pass it through Congress, which I just don’t see the votes there right now.” SHARE The Key to Higher Corn and Soybean Prices By Gary Truitt – Feb 16, 2016 The Key to Higher Corn and Soybean Prices For example, Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly has not come out in support of TPP but says he is still studying the trade proposal. Vetter says farmers must begin now to tell their elected officials that TPP is one way to raise prices and improve farm income, “In the short time frame of a lame duck session, we don’t have time to change minds and push the vote across the finish line. So educating members of Congress and the public at large needs to begin now.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Darci-VetterAs growers begin to take delivery of seed for the coming year, the price outlook for this year’s corn and soybean crop remains bleak. There is one issue that could help stimulate demand for and prices of the 2016 crop, and that is trade. With corn prices under $4 and soybeans under $9, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack is feeling some heat about dismal US farm exports and the lack of new programs to help stimulate demand, “I am cognizant that folks are concerned about the level of these prices.” Vilsack is pinning his hopes for price recovery on passage of the Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, “I am optimistic about a recovery in farm prices if Congress can pass TPP later this year.” Previous articleSyngenta Deal May Help Biotech Acceptance in ChinaNext articleMarketing and Crop Insurance Can Complement Each Other Gary Truitt

Ireland’s first autumn Test series clean sweep for eight years is not sure to be a precursor to success at Rugby World Cup 2015, according to captain Paul O’Connell. Joe Schmidt’s men closed out three-straight wins thanks to tries from Simon Zebo and Tommy Bowe, and Johnny Sexton’s 16 points in an edgy 26-23 victory over Australia. Nick Phipps crossed twice and Bernard Foley claimed a third score for the Wallabies, but Ireland held firm despite a relentless late onslaught in Dublin on Saturday. Press Association “I think it works really well when you have that narrow focus on just trying to get better bit by bit. “It’s worked most of the time for us, there have been days when we’ve gone backwards certainly, and probably periods in games where we’ve gone backwards, no different from today. “But I think that’s the way that the coaching staff will address it.” Head coach Schmidt gritted his teeth through suspected appendicitis to guide Ireland to their seventh consecutive victory, before heading off for medical attention quickly after the final whistle. Ireland skipper O’Connell was relieved to atone for last autumn’s 32-15 defeat to Australia, that had the Munster stalwart bemoaning his side’s lack of physical and mental fire at the time. Schmidt’s side lost out cruelly 24-22 to the All Blacks last November when New Zealand stole victory in time added on. This year there were no last-ditch capitulations, but despite the clear mental improvement, O’Connell attempted to downplay the clear progress. Ireland were ninth in the world rankings when Schmidt was announced as the new boss in April 2013; now they sit third, cementing their status with this Australia victory. “I don’t know if it’s a game we would have lost 12 months ago, but we were certainly happy with the way we finished,” said O’Connell. “We haven’t finished games well at points, so to see the quality they brought off the bench, for us to be able to defend the way we did and not give them any easy outs was very satisfying.” Former Leinster coach Michael Cheika admitted he was disappointed to lose on his return to Irish soil, but quickly recalibrated for Australia’s Twickenham clash with England next weekend. The Wallabies compounded their 29-26 defeat to France with another three-point loss in Dublin. Despite two strength-sapping encounters Cheika refused to ease off on his taskmaster style with his squad. “We go again; you’re not tired when you’re playing for Australia,” said Cheika. “We’ll recover and mourn the loss because it was difficult, but we’ll bounce back on Monday and do our best at Twickenham. “I’m very disappointed, it was different from last week where I think we got close but we would have been lucky to win. “This week we got close and we were unlucky not to win to be honest. “All in all I thought it was a really improved performance from last weekend and I thought we were unlucky not to get the result.” Ireland swept the board in November 2006, beating South Africa, Australia and the Pacific Islands, only to slip out of the World Cup in France a year later at the group stages. Veteran lock O’Connell still harbours the mental scars of the big build-up to 2007 that led only to huge underachievement, quickly warning against any repeat. “One of the things we know is that we’ve been here before with a good autumn, and it didn’t serve us well; so that’s the lesson you learn,” said O’Connell. “You have to reassess when you come back in for the Six Nations. “We’ve been eager to improve game by game, so when we come in for the Six Nations there’ll be a short review of the autumn and we’ll try to improve on that. “Your previous performance really means nothing when the Six Nations comes around; we would have been aware of that back then as well. “I sound like a broken record but I know exactly what will happen when we come in for the Christmas camp and the Six Nations camp. “There will be a lot of things addressed that need to be from these three games, and there will be a big emphasis put on learning from that and trying to improve those areas.
