3 big things today, march 13

SASKFARMER3's Avatar Mar 13, 2019 | 06:42 1 1. WHEAT FUTURES DROP OVERNIGHT ON PROFIT-TAKING

Wheat futures dropped overnight as some investors and hedgers liquidate their bullish positions after yesterday’s big jump.

Wheat futures surged 24 cents on Tuesday, partly due to a weaker dollar that may boost demand for U.S. supplies. A weaker greenback gives overseas buyers more purchasing power when buying dollar-denominated goods.

Soybeans and corn were slightly lower this morning on continued uncertainty about a trade deal with China. Very little information is flowing from Washington or Beijing at this time, though reports still suggest presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping will meet later this month to sign an agreement.


State-run Xinhua News Agency reported this week that negotiators from both sides have had phone conversations to determine the next step of a deal, but no official news from the White House has been released.

Wheat for March delivery dropped 7 1/4¢ to $4.45 ¾ a bushel overnight on the Chicago Board of Trade while Kansas City futures lost 7¢ to $4.35 ¾ a bushel.

Soybeans for March delivery fell 3¢ to $8.94 a bushel overnight. Soy meal declined 50¢ to $302.50 a short ton and soy oil dropped 0.14¢ to 29.85¢ a pound.

Corn for March delivery fell 1 1/4¢ to $3.64 ½ a bushel in Chicago.


2. HARD-RED WINTER CROP IN KANSAS MUCH IMPROVED FROM SAME POINT LAST YEAR, USDA SAYS

The hard-red winter wheat crop in parts of the southern Plains is improved from last year, according to state National Agriculture Statistics Services offices.

In Kansas, the biggest producer of winter wheat in the U.S., the hard-red winter crop was rated 51% good or excellent as of Sunday, the Kansas NASS office said in a report this week. That’s well ahead of the 12% that received top ratings during the same week last year.

Some 40% of the crop was rated fair and 9% was poor or very poor, according to the government. Last year at this time, 35% was considered fair while 53% was poor or very poor.

In Oklahoma, it’s been cold and dry throughout the state, and some areas haven’t seen rain in more than 60 days, the state NASS field office said in a report. About 12% of the state was considered abnormally dry to being in an exceptional drought, up 1 percentage point from the previous week.

Winter wheat was 5% jointing, down from 12% at this time last year and 5% from normal, the government said.

About 31% of topsoil in the state had a surplus of moisture, unchanged week-to-week but up from 2% last year. Forty-five percent was adequate, 20% was short and 4% was very short versus 37%, 19% and 42%, respectively, last year.

Subsoil in Oklahoma this year was 29% in surplus, 48% adequate, 18% short and 5% very short. Last year at this time, it was 3% in surplus, 29% adequate, 24% short and 44% very short, the USDA said.



3. TWENTY INCHES OF SNOW FORECAST FOR PARTS OF CENTRAL NEBRASKA, SOUTH DAKOTA

As much as 20 inches of snow are forecast for parts of central Nebraska and South Dakota starting today, according to the National Weather Service.

Blizzard warnings are in effect as total accumulations will range from 10 to 20 inches with ice accumulations of two tenths of an inch expected. Winds will gust up to 65 miles an hour, which will cause “significant” blowing and drifting snow, the NWS said in a report early this morning.

Further south in much of Kansas and the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles, a high-wind warning is in effect this morning.

Winds will be sustained from 40 to 50 miles an hour with gusts from 60 to 65 miles an hour in the southern Plains, the agency said in a report.

“Strong winds could cause tree, property and power pole damage, with scattered power outages possible,” the NWS said. “Visibility will also be reduced in falling snow across parts of the area.” Reply With Quote

    You, out of anyone posting on this site have the least right to be criticizing anyone's travel arrangements. You're life is an extravagant holiday flying and driving all over the place on your Government pension while pretending to be a poor farmer with the wolf always outside your door.
    To be criticizing Trudeau for hiding out in Florida is doubly ironic given that you're doing the same - what's wrong were there too many slappers bothering you closer to home? Reply With Quote

    Petty differences aside. Trudeau is flying on yours and mines dime. Sask3 who fucking cares. He buys his own plane ticket. Every time a public official uses public resources for personal use will always and should always come under scrutiny. It is understood in that position you’re not going to use air Canada for a family vacation but when you and your family are jetting off south more times in a year than what most commoners would in a lifetime there lies the criticism.

    At least SF3 doesn't go around preaching about carbon pollution like Trudeau than do the opposite of what he says...

    Otherwise they are pretty much exactly alike. Reply With Quote

    exactly !

    If they're willing to throttle/shut down fossil fuel production based on a theory, what makes anyone doubt that She and Trudeau won't be getting ready to attack cattle/livestock in the event they get a second mandate. asshat will still post and vote against his better interest and livelihood.

    Not to mention that they will most certainly be eliminating capital gains exemptions for farmers - well they can't really be blamed - they DO need to find money somewhere to continue paying out or funding Islamic terrorists. Reply With Quote
