Kyle TapleyWith a session topic titled, “Global corn/soybean cropping and trading – how do environmental constraints impact yield and trading,” you’d think this would take a long time. However, at the Bayer CropScience 2014 Corn and Soybean Future Forum Kyle Tapley, Senior Ag Meteorologist, MDA Information Systems, got the job done in a short time frame.

The focus was on weather and Kyle made a few statements that caught my attention after receiving several press releases from activists who want to blame single weather incidents on man made climate change. Kyle told us that “It is impossible to tie a single event to climate change.” I couldn’t agree more. He says we’ve always had extreme weather and we always will. For many of us more seasoned folks we remember living through very different weather extremes going back 50 years.

Listen to Kyle’s remarks here to get some more specific take-aways on his topic: [wpaudio url=”http://www.zimmcomm.biz/bayer/bayer-future-14-tapley.mp3″ text=”Kyle Tapley Presentation”]
