Wheat’s Weather Market Wildcard

Wheat Market Wildcard

Dry weather in the Plains will cause some wheat producers to make some tough decisions in the weeks ahead.

In the March 5 Crop Progress and Condition Report from the USDA, 50 percent of the Kansas winter wheat crop is in poor to very poor condition. Only one percent of the crop in the Sunflower State is rated excellent.

Oklahoma is facing the same situation with 71 percent of the crop is rated poor to very poor.

“If it’s still dry and the forecast is dry, some of the abandonments [are] going to start showing up,” said Arlan Suderman, chief commodities economist for INTL FCStone on AgDay. “There’s obviously some wheat that’s more marginal and maybe has more hope that maybe lasts a little bit longer.”

With a nine-month soft red winter wheat surplus and a six-month hard red winter wheat surplus, Suderman says this is a weather market.

“They go up fast, and they can break fast, too,” he said.

Hear Suderman’s thoughts on where wheat will move and how far it will move on AgDay above.

I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address (progresiveloan@yahoo.com) and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed..
