Day Precipitation Outlook


WEATHER MENTALITY FOR CORN AND SOYBEANS:  U.S. weather is expected to be mostly favorable as it should continue to be in India and China.

drying will occur in parts of Canada’s Prairies for a while this week into next week which may stress a few crops like those of the northwestern Plains. Crop conditions are improving in Mexico and still look good for Australia with significant rain coming
soon to that nation.

season corn planting will advance quickly in Brazil, but rain is needed to improve soil moisture for emergence and establishment. Dryness and some excessive heat will be a concern for summer coarse grain and oilseed crops in parts of western and southeastern
Europe as well as eastern Ukraine into Russia’s Southern Region. Dryness will also continue in some of the sunseed areas of Russia’s eastern New Lands.

concern over net drying will also continue in oil palm production areas of Indonesia.

weather today will likely produce a mixed influence on market mentality with a bearish bias remaining.


WEATHER MENTALITY FOR WHEAT:  Most of the damage done to this year’s spring cereals has already been done and no further change of great significance is expected unless the harvest season turns wet.  Some lower production is expected from Russia and Europe
due to dryness in the New Lands and in various areas in northwestern and far southeastern Europe. China’s spring wheat has performed well. Australia’s winter crops will benefit greatly from rain coming over the next two weeks and some ongoing dryness in Canada’s
Prairies may further stress late filling crops. Argentina drought will not change over the next two weeks.

weather today will likely leave a neutral to slightly bullish bias to market mentality.
