According to Brock Associates market analyst Richard Brock, the grain markets will likely continue to move lower heading into harvest. “We’re basically in a weather market and there will be some weather scares between now and harvest,” said Brock. “Again, unless there are incredible weather surprises, I don’t know what will stop it.” Brock advises farmers to consider having 60 to 70 percent of the crop priced before harvest if they don’t have storage. “I think the odds are high the cash market will be a lot less than what a farmer can contract it for right now.”
