Bryce Knorr and John Jenkinson discuss the markets on The Ag Network. Bryce says there are several factors that are leading to lack of trust in the market as we head toward a holiday weekend. Among them are debate on just how many acres won't be planted because of the flood and a new weather system moving into the flooded area.
