Basis Data

The cash grain prices found in this data set are Thursday prices provided by participating elevators in each specific region. These series contain less price history since collection began in 2000.  Prices in the basis data are an average and due to the limited number of elevators in some reporting areas and given the seasonal nature of grain sales, not all are reported each week.  Data for certain regions (North of the Canadian River, Triangle Area, South of the Line from Plainview to Muleshoe, and Houston Port) are collected and provided by AMS/USDA and these series run from 1976-current.

We strive to have complete coverage of price data throughout the state and are continuously seeking grain handlers to participate in this program.  If you would like to participate or have any suggestions, please contact Emmy Williams at 979-845-8011 or emmywilliams(at)tamu.edu .  This program is made possible through grant funding provided by the USDA-Risk Management Agency, Texas Wheat Producers Board, Texas Corn Producers, Texas Farm Bureau, Cotton State Support Committee, and Texas Grain Sorghum Producers Board.
