Market Comments

In general, market news continues to be bearish. Midwest weather remains conducive to row crops, and the trade continues to factor in a higher US 2014 supply. The weather outlook remains favorable for crops in the next two week period. This is resulting in fund selling and reduces the chance of speculative buying by traders on the CBoT. USDA recently released its latest 2014 sunflower production estimate. Total sunflower production in 2014/15 is projected to increase 19 percent to 2.4 billion pounds. Oil-type sunflower production is expected to increase 263 million pounds, but total supplies may expand by only 98 million pounds due to a likely reduction in 2014/15 beginning stocks. USDA anticipates a moderate increase in the sunflower crush. Sunflower producers had indicated only a 1-percent increase in their March planting intentions but the acreage actually expanded 8 percent this year to 1.7 million acres. Planting delays for other crops likely encouraged a bigger cropland shift into sunflower, with North Dakota accounting for most of the gain. USDA is projecting sunflower prices to trade in a range of $19.60-$22.90 during the 2014/15 market year. Going forward USDA reports and weather/crop conditions will continue to drive price direction.
