    Persistent soybean bulls push prices higher 1

    The soybean bulls are trying to revive the trade on rumors of yet another Argentine strike; data showing better-than-expected U.S. soymeal sales; and extremely tight supplies. As a producer, I continue to hold out hope for new-crop prices to make a run back above $12.50, but I think we are still several weeks away....More

    Will funds continue to push soybeans higher? 1

    Will USDA answer soybean stocks questions?

    I tend to believe at most, we see an additional 4-5 million acres when compared to last year, when we planted 76.533 million soybean acres. Remember, with the wheat crop being so late, you might have a tough time getting the normal number of second-crop soybean acres in the ground....More

    Money flow, political news, U.S. weather support $5 corn prices 1

    If the Ukraine/Russian conflict intensifies and starts to spook the U.S. equity market, the corn market will also get spooked and corn prices will move higher to help offset losses in U.S. stocks. The hedge seems somewhat smart nearby considering the uncertainties of U.S. weather and possible planting delays....More

    Looming price risk ahead for corn, soybeans 2

    A year ago at this time, the local cash corn price in southern Minnesota was near $7 per bushel, compared to slightly over $4 per bushel in late February this year. This is lowest cash corn price in late February since 2010. In recent years, we kind of got drawn into a mentality that corn prices of $5-7 per bushel were the “new normal,” rather than a temporary price upswing; however, that type of thinking could change quite dramatically in the coming years. Farm operators need to start planning now for much lower crop price levels in the coming years....More
