    crop weather still looks very good (in general) with some pockets of dryness
    • The
      outlook remains highly favorable for this time of year over the next couple of weeks
    • Normal
      August weather includes some net drying and that will occur in parts of the Midwest and Delta while the southeastern states will remain wettest
    • No
      extreme heat is expected in the heart of the Midwest or any crop region in the eastern U.S. during the next two weeks
    • West
      Texas weather will continue favorably mixed for summer crops and even though the rainfall will be minimal it will help hold the temperatures down and supplement irrigation
    • Northern
      U.S. Plains will struggle to get enough rain to seriously raise soil moisture and dryness may slowly return to parts of the region
  • Canada’s
    Prairies are drying out and this trend will continue despite some showers and thunderstorms
    • Parts
      of Alberta and northwestern Saskatchewan may be exceptions with sufficient rainfall to maintain favorable soil moisture
    • Eastern
      parts of the Prairies will be hottest today and many areas will heat up again briefly next week just ahead of another bout cooling and possible rainfall during mid-week
  • Ontario
    and Quebec weather is mostly good, but pockets of dryness are expected over the next ten days
  • Europe
    weather is going to be mixed over the next ten days, but many western areas will continue too dry and may see a couple of waves of heat intermixed at times to accelerate crop moisture stress
    • France,
      parts of Germany and the southern Balkan Countries have the greatest need for rain
  • Western
    CIS crop moisture stress remains greatest from southern and eastern Ukraine to western Kazakhstan and parts of Russia’s Southern Region

      is also a concern for the central and eastern New Lands
      • Not
        much relief to dryness is expected in either of these areas
  • China
    weather will including improving conditions in the flood ravaged Yangtze River Basin over the next two weeks
    • Some
      heavy rain is expected in northern China and a part of the Korean Peninsula next week resulting in some flooding
      • Liaoning,
        Hebei, Shandong and both North and South Korea will be most vulnerable to the flooding rainfall
    • Two
      tropical systems will bring heavy rainfall to southern China in the coming week
      • The
        first is expected in western Guangdong, Hainan, southern Guangxi and northeastern Vietnam this weekend and the second will be a tropical wave that will bring heavy rain to Fujian and Guangdong next week
  • Xinjiang,
    China is not likely to change much over the next week to ten days
    • Daily
      high temperatures will be in the upper 70s and 80s northeast and in the upper 80s and 90s elsewhere followed by lows in the 50s and 60s with a few lower 70s in the southwest
    • Rain
      is expected in northeastern areas only with Monday, Wednesday and Thursday wettest with daily rainfall of 0.05 to 0.50 inch
      • Dry
        conditions will prevail elsewhere
  • Australia’s
    weather pattern is trending wetter with rain expected in many areas during the late weekend through next week and another system in the following week
    • Some
      improvement in soil moisture is expected in many wheat, barley and canola production areas
  • Argentina
    wheat areas may get a little rain during mid-week next week and some brief showers may reach into the drought areas of Cordoba and Santa Fe, but with a limited amount of relief expected
  • Southern
    Brazil remains favorably moist
    • More
      rain will fall periodically in far southern Brazil during the next couple of weeks
    • Winter
      crop conditions are mostly good in Rio Grande do Sul and areas north into Parana, but Sao Paulo and a few other areas have been quite dry recently
    • Summer
      crop harvest progress has been good
    • Conditions
      for early season corn planting are looking favorable, but timely rain will need to continue in August to ensure early crops are successful
  • Mexico
    precipitation in the coming week will be greatest in central and southern parts of the nation benefiting many corn, sorghum and dry bean production areas
    • Coffee,
      citrus, sugarcane and many fruit and vegetable crops will also benefit

      net drying is expected
    • Central
      and northwestern Rajasthan will experience the least amount of rain over the next ten days as will central and southern Pakistan

      • Crop
        conditions have not been ideal, although there has been sufficient rain to prevent crop failure
        • Greater
          rain is needed, though
    • This
      trend will ease somewhat in the next two weeks with greater rainfall anticipated, but the greatest rainfall is expected to remain pocketed so that some areas will still need greater rain

    weather in center west and center south Brazil for Safrinha crops has been and will continue to be good
  • South
    Africa weather over the next couple of weeks will include limited rainfall and temperatures will trend a little warmer over time.
  • West-central
    Africa will receive periods of rain over the next couple of weeks maintaining a favorable environment for “some” coffee, cocoa, cotton, rice and sugarcane
    • Greater
      rain is needed in Ivory Coast and Ghana where rainfall so far this month has been notably lighter than usual
    • Most
      of the rain expected this week will continue erratic and often light
    • Temperatures
      may be a little cooler than usual
  • New

USDA
new-crop soybean export sales

exceeded expectations while old-crop were below.  Soybean meal export sales were within trade estimates but shipments were slow.  Soybean oil sales were poor along with lackluster shipments.  Corn export sales showed net reductions for old crop and new-crop
were 639,000 tons, below expectations.  Wheat sales were once again very good. 
Sorghum sales
were poor for old crop but excellent for new-crop of 163,000 tons.  Pork sales were 39,600 tons.

Corn.

China
only, includes 24-hour

 

  • USDA
    may raise their 2020-21 US export forecast by 150 million bushels to 2.300 billion bushels, above 1.775 billion for 2019-20 and largest since 2017-18 when the US exported 2.438 billion. 
  • China
    sold little more than 4 million tons of corn from reserves at an average price of 2,037 yuan per ton. 
  • USDA
    corn export sales were disappointing.  Old crop posted a net reduction. 
  • Some
    traders are as high as 187 bushels per acre for the US corn yield.  Note the ten-year trend is 183.6 bushels per acre. 
  • The
    funds bought an estimated net 1,000 corn contracts. 
  • The
    southern US Midwest will see rain over the next week while the northern Corn Belt will be dry.  Temperatures will remain mild. 
  • Bloomberg
    noted during the July 1-28 period, France saw 28% of its normal rainfall, a concern for the countries corn crop.
  • The
    USDA FAS estimated 2021 China chicken meat production rising to 15.300 million tons from 14.850 for 2020, a 3 percent increase.  They projected the poultry industry grew 18 percent in 2019 and will rise 8 percent in 2020.

Corn
vols

for this time of year are very low, and at least lowest going back to 2013 (2012 was the drought year) heading onto the August USDA Crop Production report.  Below the blue line represents 2014, the year corn vols dropped out of bed after the August report,
and grey line is the 5-year average.  Yellow is this year.  Will vol decrease further on August 12?  Looking at 2014 we think so if the US corn yield comes in above 182 bu/ac. 

 

Corn
Export Developments

  • Under
    the 24-hour announcement system, private exporters sold 1.937 million tons of corn to China and 130,000 tons of corn to unknown, both new-crop. 

 

 

 

 

Updated
7/20/
20

  • September
    corn is seen in a $3.10 and $3.35 range over the short term.  December lows could reach $3.10.  We can’t justify below $3.00 unless a shock in the September grain stocks report occurs, or China’s production gets upward revised by a large amount. 

 

Soybean
complex
.

·        
Soybean

started the day lower on bear spreading but turned a corner led by the back months.  Soybean meal was initially under pressure but ended up leading the strength in the soybean complex.  Soybean oil traded higher all day following Malaysian palm and tight South
American soybean oil stocks.  

·        
The September crush was up sharply today on higher soybean meal and bear spreading in meal. 

·        
SMZ settled right on the 20/100 DMA of 298.00. 

·        
August soybean oil closed 31 higher and September 17 higher. 

·        
USDA soybean export sales were poor for old crop and excellent for new-crop.  USDA: For 2020/2021, net sales of 3,344,200 MT primarily for China (1,989,000 MT), unknown destinations (1,232,900 MT),
Mexico (64,800 MT), Egypt (43,000 MT), and Taiwan (39,000 MT), were offset by reductions for Switzerland (60,000 MT).  Product sales were ok to lackluster. 

·        
Today was position day for August CBOT contracts.  Soybeans saw profit taking in the nearby spreads and soybean oil spreads firmed. 

·        
We see FND deliveries at zero to 50 soybeans, zero to 150 soybean meal and 1000-2500 soybean oil. 

·        
Funds bought an estimated net 2,000 soybeans, bought 3,000 meal and bought 3,000 soybean oil. 

·        
A Reuters poll calls for Brazil new crop soybean production to rise to 130 million tons from 120.9 million tons projected by Conab for 2019-20.  The planted area was expected to increase 3 percent. 

·        
China’s weekly soybean crush fell 100,000 tons to 1.96 million tons and is 390,000 tons above this time last year.  AgriCensus noted the crush volume is at a 7-week low. 

·        
Palm oil was higher.  On a monthly basis palm was up 16.5%, most since September 2015. 

·        
Indonesia aims to reach its B40 biodiesel target by July 2021.

    soybean oil range is seen in a 28.40 to 30.50 range over the short term

 

Wheat

  • US
    wheat futures

    were lower for Chicago and KC and higher for MN.  Rumors Brazil bought US and Canadian wheat this week may have supported MN type futures. Chicago wheat appears to be stuck in a two-sided trading pattern. 
  • Losses
    were limited over concerns over dryness for France, Germany and parts of the southern Balkan Countries as well as crop areas from eastern Ukraine into Kazakhstan and Russia’s southern region. 
  • USDA
    export sales for all-wheat beat expectations for the second consecutive week.  See text after the wheat section for country breakdown. 
  • Funds
    sold an estimated net 3,000 Chicago wheat contracts. 
  • BB
    – The ruble is trading at the lowest level against the dollar in more than two months. A weaker ruble promotes Russian wheat exports. 
  • For
    the US Northern Plains, net drying will occur over the next week.  Topsoil moisture is short for the western areas of the Northern Plains. 
  • The
    European Commission lowered their estimate for soft wheat production for the EU to 116.6 million tons from 117.2 million estimated a month ago.
  • Paris
    December wheat was up 0.25 at 182.75.  

 

 

Export
Developments.

  • Japan
    seeks 80,000 tons of feed wheat and 100,000 tons of barley on Aug 5 for arrival by end of Jan.

    Korea bought 26,000 tons of USs wheat at $233.69/ton and passed on 51,000 tons.  Shipment is for around November. 
  • Tunisia
    bought 50,000 tons of milling wheat ($225.95 & 226.87), 25,000 tons of durum ($321.20), and 75,000 tons of barley ($204.99-$207.14), all C&F.   
  • Results
    awaited: The Philippines seeks 216,000 tons of wheat on July 30 for September through December shipment. 
  • The
    other day Egypt ended up buying 470,000 tons of wheat, according to Reuters.
  • Results
