new Week 3-4 outlook

https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/WK34/

Slight tweeks- actually a wee bit better for the more delayed ECB.

The Chinese water torture will continue until morale improves.

Re: new Week 3-4 outlook

That quick assessment was based on temps.

As far as precip goes for  double crop beans, Sep is like Aug is for regular plantings. For the ECB, soils already on the dry to the very dry side for the most part.

This crop is just an ever more tantalizing riddle and the answer looks like it might take even longer to get at. Like combines running in some of this stuff in November. If you can cut beans in November- always a challenge with DC beans.

Needless to say, that outcome wouldn't be particularly beneficial to some of this corn that isn't much past blister although undoubtedly more of a soy issue.

And of course just the drip, drip, drip of slow GDD accumulation.

Re:Profarmer tour results, 13.4 billion bushel corn, 3.5 billion bushel beans and beans down 14 cent

Profarmer tour results, 13.4 billion bushel corn, 3.5 billion bushel beans and beans down 14 cents, corn down 4 cents.  A billion bushel less corn and billion bushel less beans and these are the prices we're seeing.

In the case of Nov. beans, $8.55 minus 75 cents basis amounts to $7.80 cash two months before harvest.  And that's $8.55 minus $1.50 up in North Dakota.

This reminds me of the old Stephen Foster song, "Hard Times Come No More"
