Grain Comments

3/21/2023 Morning Update

  • Corn, soybean, & wheat markets are higher entering the morning break. Markets are finding support at current levels & the softening US dollar is seen as supportive.  US stock futures are trading higher, along with stocks in Europe, showing some relief that the latest runs on banks are being contained.
  • Corn opened lower but worked higher on a quiet start to the day. Corn & wheat production will be down 10% – 15% in Ukraine this year according to the WSJ.
  • Soybeans are higher this morning following yesterday’s old crop gains. Michael Cordonnier, S. American crop consultant, cut another 2 MMT off his Argentine soybean crop forecast, lowering it to 26 MMT. Brazilian soybean harvest continues to make slow, but steady progress and was reported as 63% finished.
  • The Ukrainian agricultural ministry reported the 2023 Ukraine grain harvest may fall to 44.3 MMT from 53.1 MMT in 2022 due to the Russian invasion.
  • A USDA attaché estimated Chinese soybean imports in 2023-2024 to reach 97 MMT versus the current USDA estimate of 96 MMT.
  • The Federal Reserve rate decision will be released tomorrow afternoon.  There is a 73% chance the Fed will raise rates by ¼ point.
