the CP has a huge fracking sand spike as I see it.
I know this is not empirical evidence and I have no idea how much they make shipping it.
but since oil has gone up, every frieght train I see has 10% or more sand cars.
And after a year of no unit sand trains. 2Qrt. I observe at least 2 loaded a day going by.
I live in MN so they are shipping it form IA to ND.
You obviously know more about the morpholgy of vascular plants than I do.
but I do know that monocotaledons like heat. so I will have to agree with you.
the corn fields will be knee high by the fourth of july.
means nothing as tassel time and corn silk is still at the mercy of LaNina.
CFontribute?, not when they need cash to buy beer.
a 2012 corn planting in the USA is at tic.
if la nina comes early the pricen goes up with crop failure
if the La Nina comes late the price of corn goes down big time with the markets and a huge yield.
it is way too early to bet
