Total Farm Marketing Senior Market Advisor Naomi Blohm says the one thing the grain markets aren’t picking up on yet is North Dakota’s prevent plant. “The crop was late to get planted, because harvest was late. The most recent crop progress report showed 26 percent of the North Dakota soybean crop yet to be planted. That equates to 1.7 million acres in the ground,” says Blohm. “With the prevent plant date passed, all eyes are on North Dakota to see how many acres of soybeans will be put in the ground. That could be a game changer moving forward.”
