On Wednesday, private exporters reported to the USDA export sales of 132,000 metric tons of soybeans for delivery to China during the 2021/2022 marketing year.
The marketing year for soybeans began Sept. 1.
Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that all eyes will be on tomorrow's USDA monthly Supply/Demand Report.
“The USDA is likely to increase projected U.S. corn exports in the report on Thursday. I expect them to factor in a much smaller Brazilian corn crop and a large reduction in Brazilian corn exports over the next year," Kluis stated in a note to customers.
Linneman added, "What will the USDA project tomorrow for the US corn and soybean crops? In the last six years, the USDA has come out with a larger corn crop than the pre-report trade estimates in the August report. In five of the last six years, the soybean crop forecast has been larger than the pre-report trade estimates. I am amazed by the huge range in the trade estimates for the Thursday reports."
What say you?

Maybe 170 to 175 corn yield... Kinda depends more on acres harvested for grain. Say 175 on 80mill harvested would be pretty close to truth
Beans.. Won't avg 50. Say 47.
