CHART OF THE DAY

CORN REPORTS FROM THE FIELD:
Grinnell, Iowa: Corn yields are around 200 field averages
right now. Most fields this is slightly above average, but
not the best ever. Very little corn harvest so far.
Washington County, Iowa; 80 acres; 218 bpa dry
Central Iowa; northwest of Des Moines: 750 acres: 250
yield/acre; farmer didn't say whether dry basis or not.
Hancock County, Illinois: Quite a bit of 260-270 corn
coming out; Couple of individual fields: 158 ac – 278 bpa
dry; 168 ac- 292 bpa dry; 40 acres of the field had over
300 bpa average.
Findlay, Illinois: 248 bushels per acre dry; Last year was
a record at 197
West Central Indiana - 500 acres of corn averaged 236
bpa dry. This is 50 bpa higher than trend adjusted yields.
Near Farmersville, Illinois: 40 acres went 270 bpa; dry.
Marshal, Iowa: 160 acres corn 249 bushels/acre.
Let’s remember that the USDA is forecasting 171.7
bushels/acre on average for the entire country for corn
and is forecasting 46.6 bushels of beans/acre. We note
that Nebraska, Illinois, and Iowa are perhaps the most
fecund farming lands in the country and that their
yields/acre always trump that of the national average by a
large margin, but even knowing that we stand in awe of
the numbers being reported. If these reports are
indicative of the growing conditions across the country
then we are indeed looking at a corn crop that could be
14.6-14.8 billion bushels


 

SOYBEANS FROM THE FIELD:

Montevideo, MN, West Central 55 BPA; no frost damage
this area; some frost damage 30 miles east. Believes
later beans will average better than 50 BPA also.
Ayr, ND, 45 miles NW of Fargo; 1st field went 42 BPA on
early variety beans. Later varieties should do better. No
frost damage.
Illinois; Moultrie county; 117 acres 68.48 bushels/acre; 77
acres and 66.45 bushels/acre
Central Nebraska: 154 acres irrigated soybeans; 79.50
bushels per acre; Producer pleased, but thought they
might be in the mid 80’s.
Grinnel, Iowa: Bean yields are big so far. Upper 60’s to
low 70’s. Most of these fields would be expected to be
around 60, so we are 8-12 bushels above expectations.
Expect a big week of bean harvest.
Eastern Iowa: 1st bean field went exactly 70 bushels
across the scale-this county was in the dry part of the
state until late August.
35 miles northeast of Memphis, Tennessee: 70 acres of
early beans went 65 to 70 bpd. He thinks rest of beans
will be much better and his double crop beans maybe his
best.

Video Clips
Markets continue to be pressured by the idea of burdensome harvest coming. Yield reports continue to
show very good yields in beans and corn both. Basis  levels continue to break in the interior locations  as
the cost of freight sinks in. Crusher would still like to let new crop beans temper some but the way basis
bids have backed off is a strong indication that a lot of bean harvest is moving to cash. Meal basis
offers are being discounted steeply as a result.
The wheat market finally tried to bounce with the s hort open interest the driving force. Chi spreads are
tightening as the SRW cash firms. I have to apologize that the VSR spread monitoring period did start
this week. An Avg of less than 13.5 cents in Z/H for the next 45 days will cause storage rates to drop
back to 5 cents a month. Look for resistance in WZ at 5.00 and again at 5.25. Hard to see it that high.
Dec corn also managed to close firmer today but should have trouble extending beyond 10 to 15 cents
off the  lows.  This market  is  not  all  that  short  and  may  actually  find  selling  if  we  really  trigger short
covering in beans and wheat. If you covered shorts this week, put them back out on that small rally---do
it in Jly.  Spreads trying to weaken but there should be more to come.
Nov beans should find stability from 9.40 down to 9.30. The issue is a record all time fund short open
interest that could trigger short covering. Is 20 thou larger than the previous record. Lot of shorts here
so there is power if we get a reason to short cover? Resistance will show in layers at 9.75, 10.00 and
10.25. Hard to see a rally of more than 50 cents off the lows here so may not get a chance to sell
anything over that first level? Sell that if given a chance. Dec meal break is getting down near targets of
305.00. If this level continues to break down, could be due to a more dramatic move in oil/meal. It looks
to have finally built some momentum for oil to gain and it could come on a major break in meal?  SMZ
will find resistance at 320 to 325.00 now. Looks like the board crush has selling on trade over $1.00
