  Compared to last week:  Trade activity moderate on moderate demand.  
According to the NASS Crop Progress report July 13, 2020, in Tulare 
County, harvested fields were being disked and planted for silage or 
other forage crops. Silage corn continued to grow at a steady rate, with 
an increase in irrigation. Alfalfa was maturing and being harvested. Bean 
fields were flowering. In the Sacramento Valley, rice progressed well and 
at a normal pace. Crops were maturing at a faster pace due to hotter 
temperatures. Hay is reported FOB the stack or barn unless otherwise 
noted. Regions are defined at bottom of report.
