Show-Me Market Showdown
July 14 - September 19, 2014
Farmers, ag professionals, and other interested parties are needed to compete in the SHOW-ME-MARKET SHOWDOWN (pdf), an online grain marketing game where players compete by making virtual grain marketing transactions. Players in the game are given a grain production scenario and are asked to market their virtual grain using real-time cash, futures and options quotes. Each player's sales and trades are processed and monitored by CommodityChallenge.com, which is the hosting platform for the game. The game provides players with an opportunity to learn about grain marketing by experimenting with different marketing strategies in a low-risk, fun, and friendly competition. To register or for more information, e-mail Whitney Wiegel at WiegelW@missouri.edu or visit the program webpage at http://extension.missouri.edu/lafayette/ShowMeMarketShowdown.aspx

Don't guess — Soil test and save time and money
Soil testing is the best guide to the efficient use of fertilizer and soil amendments. Whether you grow acres of row crops or have a vegetable garden in the backyard, a soil test will provide you with an analysis of nutrients and a set of recommendations for improvements. Soil testing can be done through the extension office. The cost for a regular test is $15 per sample box . Additional fees are required for additional tests. Each sample box requires 2 cups of dry soil. Results will be mailed to you in about 10 to 14 business days. See additional MU publications for information on soil testing.
