USDA Grain Review: Grain Bids Higher
25 March 2013
US – Compared to last week, grain and soybean bids were higher and wheat saw support from the higher grains.
However, some pressure was noted as the HRW wheat region is anticipating another storm system moving in through the weekend across the southern plains and Midwest.
Crop ratings improved for Kansas and Oklahoma, but declined for Texas. Soybeans saw sharp gains late in the week on increased demand and logistical concerns in Brazil.
Corn had weekly export sales of only 275,300 tonnes with 92,200 tonnes slatted for 2012-2013. Soybeans weekly export sales came in at 341,800 tonnes with 107,800 tonnes for 2012-2013. Wheat had weekly export sales of 573,300 tonnes with 484,500 tonnes for 2012-2013.
