St. Joseph, MO    Fri Aug 30, 2013   USDA-MO Dept of Ag Market News

   Compared to last week, grain and soybean bids closed higher.  Soybeans saw 
sharp gains with the thought of tight supplies ahead and a late crop for both 
corn and beans has the market bulls out.  The hot dry weather ahead for the next 
several days is expecting to stress the crops adding support to the markets.  
However, milder temperatures are in the forecast for next week with little rain 
expected.  The Pro Farmer crop tour took place last week, and yields were 
projected at lower levels than what USDA is estimating.  Pro Farmer yield 
estimates for the U.S. corn crop were at 154.1 bushels per acre and a total of

set soybean yield at 41.8 bushels per acre with a crop size of 3.16 billion bu 
as compared to the USDA estimate of 3.25 billion bu.  Weekly export sales for 
corn totaled 658,800 tonnes with cancellations of 15.000 tonnes for 2012-2013.  
Soybeans had had export sales totaling 865,500 tonnes with cancellations of 3200 
tonnes for 2012-2013.  Wheat had bullish export sales totaling 551,300 tonnes.
