Market Comments

USDA released planted acres and June 1 stocks estimates this week. USDA's estimate of US June 1 soybean and corn stocks were less than traders expected. USDA estimated US 2015 planted soybean acres near 85.1 million up slightly from March's Prospective Plantings estimate of 84.6. Area planted to sunflower in 2015 totals 1.68 million acres, up 8 percent from 2014. Harvested area is expected to increase 7 percent from last year to 1.61 million acres. Planted area of oil type varieties, at 1.40 million acres, is up 19 percent from 2014. Planted acreage of non-oil sunflower varieties, estimated at 283,000 acres, is down 27 percent from last year. Stats Canada gave their 2015 planted acre estimates this week as well. Canadian farmers reported seeding 120,000 acres of sunflower, up 60 percent from 2014. With the release of the USDA reports, the market will focus on weather and guessing where US 2015/16 crop and end stocks will end up. Some hot and dry weather would be beneficial to crop development in most growing areas. Upcoming USDA reports and weather/crop conditions going forward will drive price direction.
