Market Comments

USDA March US acreage report came out opposite what most traders were looking for. In the report USDA estimated corn plantings at 89.2 million acres, more than the trade expected, but down from 90.6 million acres a year ago. Soybean plantings were estimated at 84.6 million acres, less than expected, but up from 83.7 million acres a year ago. All-wheat plantings were estimated at 55.4 million acres, slightly less than expected and down from 56.8 million acres a year ago. USDA estimated all planted crop acres at 324.8 million down 2 million from last year. Most of the drop in total planted acres versus last year was in ND, SD, NE, KS, OK and TX. This is probably a sign that some decisions are still to be made in these states on what crop to plant this year. The March report gives farmers a benchmark to see what others are thinking of planting in 2015. It also gives them the chance to change their minds and make planting adjustments to take advantage of market opportunities. Given the potential of a drier or perhaps drought year many farmers are hedging against this by planting sunflowers. Sunflower plants have a tap root that can reach moisture that other plants cannot and are very drought tolerant. With the March reports factored into the market the attention shifts to the South American harvest and to spring weather in the Midwest ahead of planting.
