KGNC AGRIBUSINESS HEADLINES

Climate Change Initiatives For Ag

According to EPA, agriculture is responsible for nine percent of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. And to help farmers and livestock producers play a larger role in addressing the issue of climate change, USDA has rolled out a series of new voluntary initiatives. To learn more, go here

Should Food With GMO's Carry Special Labels?

A big issue right now is whether food made with GMO ingredients should carry special labels.

One place where the issue is being debated is the House Ag Committee. The committee’s vice chairman is Lubbock Congressman Randy Neugebauer, and he tells KGNC he can’t predict the debate’s final outcome, but he himself opposes mandatory labels.

"Particularly, what it doesn't impact is the safety of the product," Neugebauer said. "I think sometimes when we start down this road of labeling, what we're maybe doing as a government is endorsing or saying this food is safer than that food. And as you know, there is no science out there to indicate that GMO products are any different than others."

Consumption of Flour Steady in U.S.

It sounds like you can chalk up a victory for wheat in the food politics wars. Texas Wheat Producers’ Steelee Fischbacher says per capita consumption of flour in the U.S. is holding steady at 135 pounds a year.

"The fact that we're holding steady is something we're very proud of. We see all these news stories and we talk about the gluten-free diet and all these things we feel are attached to wheat. But when we look at the actual numbers on what people are eating they're still making their bread, they're still baking their cookies, our flour is holding steady."

Too Much Rain for Sorghum?

It’s hard to believe, but there are places in Texas where they got maybe too much rain. A lot of planting was delayed downstate, including for sorghum. KGNC asked Wayne Cleveland of Texas Grain Sorghum Producers if late planting will reduce the amount of acres going to sorghum this year.

"I don't think it will, I think it's actually going to work in opposite because folks planted their grain sorghum before their cotton and now the cotton deadline has passed," Cleveland said.

In other words, acres lost for cotton instead going to sorghum.

Texas A&M Agrilife Grain Grading Workshops

Texas A&M AgriLife is offering grain grading workshops in Amarillo May 5-6. Topics covered will include why grain is graded, how important grain grading is to the feedlot industry, and how to identify damage in grain. For more information go here:
