While planting progress is delayed, Midwest Market Solutions President Brian Hoops says there is still plenty of time to get the crop planted. “The biggest concern is temperatures that won’t allow for quick emergence. It’s a slow start to the growing season, but there’s really no damage that’s been caused. The moisture through the snow is beneficial for spring wheat.” Ending stocks are the major concern for corn and soybeans. “That’s part of the factors we’re talking about when it comes to yield loss and being sensitive to weather concerns. Pollination could be pushed back.”
