Market Trends Report for April-May 2017

Monday, April 24, 2017

US and World

With the bearish tone set in the market coming off the March 31st USDA projected plantings report, there is much interest in just how many acres American farmers will plant in 2017. For the week ending April 16, 2017, American farmers had approximately 6% of the US corn crop planted compared to 12% last year. It is early yet and weather has not cooperated throughout the American Midwest. As we move ahead, those weather concerns will define the crop mix and ultimately market prices.
