Rain Boots, Norts or Both??


Whether we know it or not, we’ve all been greatly affected by the temperamental weather that plagues our country.  In many places, especially central Oklahoma, we’ve been experiencing a drought. Some areas in the country, however, have had flooding or even frost. We know mother nature sometimes likes to have her fun and play tricks on us.

The recent weather has certainly taken it’s toll on soybean production.  In places like Minnesota, soybeans have been hit because of long boughts of late season drought. Recently however, soybeans have been hit by frosts.  Soybean production is suffering from both ends of the spectrum of weather patterns. This could cause a huge problem for people in the United States and around the world.

Soybeans are important to our country. We use soybeans for everything from livestock food to food humans eat.  It is a great source of protein, so it’s used a lot by people who don’t eat meat.  Frosts and droughts greatly effect the way soybeans mature, grow and are harvested. While we may not always pay attention how the weather effects us more than if we need rain boots, norts or both, we all need to watch how the weather affects agriculture because agriculture effects us all.

Hi! I'm a 20-year-old college student at Oklahoma State University. I came from a very small town in central Oklahoma and all my friends think I "live in the boonies." I love sports, music, friends, family, and God! I like to think I have an unique outlook on what it's like to move from the small town to the city, or at least as much as you can call Stillwater the city.

I love your opinions and comments!
