first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jun 15, 2015 Home News Feed Pioneer Crop Update 6/15/15 Pioneer Crop Update 6/15/15 Pioneer Crop Update 6/15/15Crop damage reports continue to come in after another weekend of heavy rain in some areas. Ryan Piel, DuPont Pioneer agronomist in NW Indiana, says ponding is a serious problem in many fields, “A lot of these crops that are underwater are just not going to make it, especially if we get some heat.”  He added that the excessive rain we have had and that is forecast for the next two weeks is also taking a lot of nitrogen out of the soil, “This is going to be a real concern over the next few weeks.” In some areas replanting may still be an option. Peal is suggesting mid group 3 varieties, “I think they can still give you good yields but you will have to increase your plant population rate.” Facebook Twitter SHARE He also sees major disease problems coming as a result of the rains, “I think we are going to have a serious problem this year. As soybeans begin to flower, that is going to open up the plant to disease infestation.” He said some parts of the state have seen hail, and that will damage corn leaves which will also open the plant for infection.

Mortgage Rates Remain Steady After Fed Meeting

first_img Related Articles  Print This Post Mortgage Rates Remain Steady After Fed Meeting Just as the Federal Reserve stuck to its course on bond purchases this week, mortgage rates too remained more or less steady, measures show.Freddie Mac released Thursday the results of its Primary Mortgage Market Survey for the week ending June 19, recording an average interest rate of 4.17 percent (0.6 point) for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM), down from 4.20 percent last week. A year ago, the 30-year FRM averaged 3.93 percent.The 15-year FRM was also down, albeit only 1 basis point, averaging 3.30 percent (0.5 point) for the week.Shifting to adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs), the average rate for a 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid ARM was 3.00 percent (0.4 point) this week, falling from 3.05 percent. The 1-year ARM, on the other hand, ticked up to 2.41 percent (0.4 point) from 2.40 percent previously.A year ago, interest rates were on their way up on speculation that the Fed may soon start tapering its bond stimulus. Now that the central bank is on track to potentially end its stimulus purchases by the end of the year, rates have actually shown little movement, defying expectations.While the first quarter’s economic contraction is partly responsible for rates staying put, analysts at finance site Bankrate.com say developments overseas are also having an effect.”[A]lthough the Fed is buying fewer bonds, the ongoing stimulus efforts of the European Central Bank have driven interest rates so low on the other side of the Atlantic that many overseas investors have piled into U.S. Treasuries, filling the void left by the Fed and keeping both bond yields and mortgage rates at low levels,” they said.As for its own national survey, Bankrate captured the 30-year fixed at an average 4.33 percent, down a point, while the 15-year fixed was up the same amount 3.44 percent.The 5/1 ARM remained unchanged at 3.37 percent, meanwhile.
