Market Comments

NOAA released their longer term forecasts last week. They look for the drought situation to grow worse in the Upper Midwest and project it to persist beyond the planting season. Small grain planting in the Northern Plains is off to good start in comparison to last year's rain delayed planting season. However if dry conditions persist in the Northern Plains as forecast it will affect crop production as there is very little soil moisture to carry the crop through the growing season. Traders continue to see US export sales winding down seasonally as supplies from South America enter the world market. A huge soybean crop is hitting the market as Argentina and Brazil are both harvesting big crops. Sunflower prices had a mixed week with the market taking back some of the past two weeks rally. The birdfood market continues to trade at a premium to crush plant prices. Crop budgets are still showing sunflowers among the top-earners in 2015. New crop sunflower prices are very competitive with other crops as the industry tries to secure 2015 production after 2014's small crop and the potential of very tight ending seed stocks by the end of September.
