Market Comments

ADM is offering 2016 new crop AOG high oleic sunflower contracts at Enderlin and Pingree, ND.

The recent rally in soybean futures is tied to weather concerns about the South American crop. In Argentina, heavy rains have caused significant harvest delays and raised questions about the condition of the country’s soybean crop. Dry weather and falling production numbers are the worry in Brazil. Various estimates have South American soybean production anywhere from 1 million tons lower to 10 million tons lower. Such a backdrop is giving CBoT traders concerns about the ability of South American exports to deliver what they were expecting. This has led funds to go from a short position in soybeans to now being long.  At this point, the market is overbought and it could mean that weak speculators could be quick to get out on a pull back if conditions change. Could the market be overreacting? Will a shortfall in production materialize? It remains to be seen. On the sunflower side, ADM is offering additional 2016 new crop Act of God (AOG) high oleic sunflower contracts at Enderlin and Pingree, ND. When high oleic contracts were first offered this winter they were snapped up quickly with many growers still looking to contract 2016 production. This is an opportunity to lock in prices and diversify your crop risk this year.
