Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MIDDAY Midwest Digest, August 24, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about fall merchandise in stores, soybean yield potential, the federal assistance package for tariff impact and where to find him during the Farm Progress Show.

Summer merchandise is almost out of stores, and fall and Halloween products are being placed. 

Yield potential is impressing people, particularly after recent rains. Some private analysts think soybeans could yield 53 bushels per acre.

What will farmers do once they find out how the federal assistance package will impact their operations? Some analysts wonder which crop farmers will sell sooner than later. 

Find Max at the Farm Progress Show at Case IH and in the hospitality tent.
