Wheat Outlook

  • February 12, 2019 – U.S. wheat ending stocks were revised upwards in the much awaited February WASDE. The global wheat situation was little changed with a 2 mmt increase in use overtaking a 1.4 mmt increase in supply.
  • February 1, 2019 – We are able to add some delayed market information to this week’s newsletter: grain export sales for 12/20 and commitment of traders. The much anticipated Crop Production, WASDE, Grain Stocks and Wheat Seedings are due out next Friday.
  • January 25, 2019 – The Drought Monitor continues to show favorable conditions over most of the Southern High Plains. The current El Nino pattern is forecast to hold through this spring and summer.
  • January 18, 2019 – With the lapse in federal funding at USDA, market information is limited. The drought monitor shows no major drought conditions for the Southern High Plains and July KC wheat futures are generally following seasonal tendencies.
