As the dust settles from the August USDA reports, the grain trade is shifting their focus. According to AgResource Company President Dan Basse, weather is one story in the markets. The portions of the Midwest will need more rain to carry corn and soybeans through the last portion of the growing season. “Weather has been adverse across the Eastern Corn Belt, on top of a late planted crop, so we do expect some corn and soybean yield losses.” Late planted crops will also need a full growing season to reach maturity. Basse says that is a key ingredient to the market mix. As time goes on and fall approaches, the market will find out more. Listen to the story.
