Does the trade look at the ProFarmer Tour numbers, or do they view it like I do. Corporate write off.
I can get the numbers that they come up with but when you look at the kernel size, test weight I think That will throw this yield way off.

If you want to know what the market is really watching, it's actual yields. Take a look at the results being reported, this week, in the Yield Monitor.

The European wx model (most accurate out there) has a strong hurricane going into MS/AL on day 7... This should cause a lot of oil production to shut down in the Gulf of Mexico in the next few days. Watch oil soar... Notice gold was way up today too... Probably the talk of QE3...

It is amazing how many in ag and trade still do not understand that price/demand relationships for food and feed are not like for widgets in the industrial economic model. They DO NOT correlate at times of low supply and high prices.
Like the saying 'crops mainly grow', 'people mainly eat' and 'governments make sure they do' in order to retain power.
'Food demand is mainly inelastic'.
