WEEKLY NATIONAL GRAIN MARKET REVIEW
Compared to last week, wheat and soybean bids were higher, while corn and
sorghum traded lower ahead of the holiday weekend. Wheat was higher on concerns
of cold temperatures in the Southern Plains that could damage winter wheat,
along with dry conditions. Temperatures dropped in the low 20’s raising
concerns as the crop is already suffering from drought conditions. Soybeans
found support from a positive NOPA crush report which was much higher than
expected at 153.8 mb for the month of March. Corn saw gains early on spillover
support from wheat and plantings behind schedule. Late pressure was noted due
to the lower soybeans. The first progress planting report showed 3 percent
planted, mostly in the south. The harsh winter, recent cold temperatures, and
rain have led to a late planting season. Wheat was 16-53 cents higher. Corn
was 1-6 cents lower. Sorghum was 11 cents lower. Soybeans were 31-36 cents
