It was much of an up week for prices this week as the US crop progress report (see below) was very supportive of higher prices. Corn was up by close to USD 5 m/t in the week but other than slow planting in the US no one much can see a good reason for higher corn prices. The farmers are out in the fields this week planting like mad and it won’t take them long to get the corn in the ground --- assuming decent planting weather for a while. Experts feel that next weeks crop progress report will show corn planting in the US at about 20 percent, but this is still well below the level normally seen – 40% planted would be more normal...........please click PDF to see more details

However, most experts seemed to be much more concerned with the rainfall than with Trump and China. Even with a weak Friday, soybean prices were still up by close to USD 8 m/t on the week........please click PDF to see more details

The trade situation with China was the main point of interest for grain and oilseed people this week and soybeans slipped lower on China concerns. Trade fights aside, soybeans had a very good export week and it will be interesting to see if the export volume continues. Soybean prices in the US were down about USD 4 m/t on the week with soymeal prices down by about the same amount. Argentina’s soybean production estimates were lowered again this week...........please click PDF to see more details

As was to be expected the USDA Quarterly Stocks and Planting Intentions report was the excitement of the week. Reported stocks in the report were above what the trade had expected for both corn and soybeans and close to expectations for wheat – both corn and soybean stock levels were higher than March 2017 with soybean stocks much higher. Certainly bearish stocks for corn and soybeans...........please click PDF to see more details
