Weekly Market Recap
For the first week of May 2021, the corn, soybeans, and wheat futures prices all rose consistently through the week. Experts are saying that drought conditions in South America are to blame, along with rains in some of the Midwest putting a pause on planting. We are looking forward to the USDA Supply and Demand report on Wednesday, the 12th, to have an impact on the prices for the second week of May.
Important Marketing Information
The World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report from the USDA on May 12th, 2021 showed that the USDA expects slightly lower U.S. production than the analysts’ average, yet the USDA was within the expected range. For the U.S. Ending Stocks for 2021-22, the USDA was slightly above the analysts’ average for both corn and soybeans.
