Market Comments

Talk that most of the US Midwest could see less than normal August rainfall triggered the market to add in some premium to new crop prices on the CBoT in the past week. There is also talk that temperatures could be cooler than normal in August. August to early September is the critical time frame for oilseeds. Growing conditions throughout the Midwest have been very favorable for oilseed development. This is leading buyers to anxiously watch crop production prospects before making longer term purchases. Old crop sunflower prices lost ground this week losing 30 cents to $1.25 per cwt. New crop prices settled 45 to 65 cents lower. Producers are cleaning out storage bins to get ready for harvest and deliveries to crush plants have been on the increase. Given the price decline in other commodities, especially soyoil values, it was probably inevitable that sunflower prices would follow. Corn prices have plunged nearly 30 percent in the past three months to their lowest point since 2010. Prices of other crops have fallen sharply as well, with soybeans trading near two and half year lows and wheat near four year lows. Weather and crop conditions will continue to drive price direction.
