Market Comments

Traders are mainly focused on the upcoming USDA reports that will be released on March 31. They are expecting slightly lower corn acres and higher soybean acres versus last year. USDA stocks numbers for March 1 corn, wheat and soybeans are expected to be higher than the average trade guess. Any shift from these bearish thoughts will be a bullish factor for oilseeds. Sunflower acres are expected to show a significant increase after last year's prevent plant acres come back into production in 2015. Crop budgets are still showing both confectionary and oil 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. The potential of tight ending seed stocks by the end of September has confection processors and oil crushers still offering 2015 new crop contracts. All of the sunflower demand sectors are offering Act of God (AOG) contracts for fall delivery. These ‘fail safe' contracts have become very popular with farmers throughout the production region. It provides an opportunity to ‘lock in' attractive prices now for fall delivery. It removes that all important factor of ‘price risk' in these very volatile times.
