This week DTN View From the Cab farmers discuss current crop conditions, staying safe and what's for lunch.

What DTN Is Watching

Wednesday's reports start with ADP private employment at 7:15 a.m. CDT, an early hint of Friday's unemployment report. The U.S. Energy Department's weekly inventory report follows at 9:30 a.m. and will include ethanol production. Traders will be watching for any confirmation of trade rumors, especially from China, as well as the latest weather forecasts.


A summer pattern with very warm to hot conditions will cover most primary crop areas Wednesday. Some shower and thunderstorm formation will be noted in parts of the Midwest and Delta.
