Late Planting May Provide Opportunities

Planting Pace and the Markets

Brian Doherty of Stewart Peterson sat down with AgDay's Clinton Griffiths to discuss planting pace and how it may or may not influence markets. 

"The last four crops that were planted late as of the second week of May they did pretty well," says Doherty. "One was trend line and the other three were above trend line."

He says that makes the markets real suspicious of planting delays. 

"I am of the opinion there is a little bit of luck with that too," says Doherty. "You had really good weather to carry the season and a late fall."
