Corn and beans were little changed in overnight trading as investors are trying to decide whether to focus on the speedy planting or the weaker dollar. Corn is almost to the average and beans are well ahead, but the dollar is weaker, which may boost demand for US goods. It's really just a typical bull-bear scenario and nobody seems to be winning right now. Corn rose a penny while beans lost a penny. Wheat was up about the same. In weather news, it looks like there could be widespread snow starting today. Wyoming will be the first to get it, then Nebraska, Kansas and the Dakotas. By the end of the weekend the storm could be moving into Michigan and Indiana, according to forecasters.
Here's what happened overnight:
Brent Crude Oil = down 1.7%.
West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil = down 1.8%.
Dollar = down 0.1%.
Wall Street = U.S. stock futures higher in pre-market trading.
World Markets = Global stocks lower as crude oil plunges.

Knock wood, so far we missed the 2"+ rain for NCIA, a little bita snow this morning, cold low 30`s. Corn maybe 25% planted (and I feel sorry for it) some haven`t even scratched in the field yet. Putting in corn is so high priced, you kind of want to do it right the first time....but I`ve seen it where the crazies that "plant too early" got the beautiful ankle high stuff well those of us that "wear suspenders and a belt" are muddin` it in at the end of May.
If we get or had gotten precip measured in inches, as messed up and saturated this ground is, I wouldn`t doubt there`d be a little prevent plant.

34* this morning with a NW wind at 20mph. It is forecast to be in the 30's for lows the next five days with 2" of rain. Not growing weather. My guess is that 75% of corn planted around here with some beans planted also, seems we have lost a week of growing weather.
A long ways tell harvest. Farming has always been a step of faith.
Yes, I agree, the weather is the most important variable in this market and one that we can not control, just learn to work with it.

like the smart fella said "it's hard to find the time to plant it twice if you don't get going early". 29 degrees west of Mankato MN this morning at 8 am. Thousands of acres of corn planted in this area....should be a good test for which numbers have the best cold germ. Some corn was planted April 11th...it probably will have a couple of goosenecks in the sprout as the poor kernel tries to figure out whether to go up or down. I have barely started tillage, have fertilizer to apply, wont be planting for about ten days or so but I am always the slow one here.
