Ahead of the USDA June 30th Report, a lot of positioning is alrady occuring. The word is that traders want to be long July/short Nov soybeans. Also, traders want to be long soybeans/short corn. The July soybean/corn price ratio is 2.8:1.

Re: Floor Talk June 22

It looks like southern Minnesota, northern Iowa, and points farther to the east are in the weather bullseye today.......(Hope everyone stays safe!)  More crop damage being done or.....are we making more bushels today?

"Rain makes grain"  Corn plants do best when underwater, they stay cooler that way.

Re: Floor Talk June 22

roarintiger1,

 

Father's Day took me on a trek to southwest Iowa. Along the way, it was very evident that farmers are having a tough time fighting weeds. Weeds that were sprayed were not dying. Some fields had weed populations that were really high. Followed one planter that a farmer was using to "mud" some beans in. He was trying to replant the bare spots. Another farmer was actually in the field planting beans. Both units were in bottom ground.

But, the point here is, it appeared the farmers were having to spend a lot more money on a crop that is already worth below cost of production levels. With the markets not tracking the heighth of the weeds, you sure felt for those guys/gals that were out there trying to get a crop in. I know, I know, they were trying to fulfill their prevent plant duties. But still.

Re: Floor Talk June 22

Marketeye, that is my area where I am at.  Its not that weeds aren't dying, this is just the first they got sprayed.  We have had 6 days in a row now with sun and no rain.  Saw some guys yesterday on the Missouri bottom planting beans for the first time.  Most of those fields are 160 or 320 acres not small ones.  Insurance date for us was the 15th.  Those beans will be lucky to make 30 bu. if they dont get flooded again.

Re: Floor Talk June 22

westernia80,

 

I didn't get the basis prices, while I was there. What's the basis like in your area? What's the marketing plan, considering late planting, yield cuts, but still a weak market? Are you still sitting on plenty of old crop?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Re: Floor Talk June 22

I listen to that same foolishness.....

 

Jeff if there are twice as many rainy days in april and may and a few windy days and you just can't get all the bases covered.  YELL as loud as possible.....That xxx, xxx chemical won't kill weeds..... lieing just makes a sprayer operator feel better....  especially if a guy going down the road will do it for him.... Chemical reps love it as well, cause now they can sell a spray additive for twice as much to add to the next mix on that acre...... which just happens to be two months behind schedule....

 

Every actual application done "last week" -- weeds are dieing just fine,,, It is the immaginary applications done last week that are not responding to the chemical...

Re: Floor Talk June 22

Corn: Cargill Blair Nebraska spot bid is .07 over,  NC is .25 under  Beans: Cargill Council Bluffs, spot is .05 under NC is .45 under.

 

I have been done planting for 2 weeks.  I am in the hills so I didn't have that much trouble getting done.  There is a lot of beans that have not emerged yet.  Some corn looks excellent, some dead and a lot that is yellow if the ground is flat or not well drained.  Some corn is canopied and some is only about 2 leaves.  So its all over the board as will be yields.  Sold the last of old crop corn last month.  Beans were gone in Jan.  80% crop ins. is my marketing plan.  I have a floor if the market goes down and topside is open.
