Weed control at spring planting, an increasing challenge with herbicide-resistant weeds, presents extra concerns when temperatures stay low, day and night. Weather bears watching more than usual.

The export data seemed to exacerbate today’s early soy pullback. Soybean and product prices had proved extremely strong in the wake of Tuesday’s bullish NOPA crush report. However, beans were backing away from overnight highs in early trading and the decline accelerated after the export sales result proved mediocre. May soybeans declined 4.75 cents to $15.14/bushel at their Thursday close, while May soyoil sagged 0.30 cents to 43.41 cents/pound, and May soymeal dipped $2.7 to $488.3/ton.
