Market Comments


Old Crop High Oleic bids are offered at Cargill in Fargo and ADM Goodland.

Sunflower prices continued to rally at the North Dakota crush plants this week adding 60-80 cents per hundredweight. Since the July low old crop NuSun prices have now added $1.80 per hundredweight at the crush plants setting a new high for this year.   CBoT soyoil values have been gaining on meal and this has been positive for sunflower prices. Oil has rallied on renewed buying interest from major players such as China and India. New crop prices have also followed the recent oil rally. This week a new high was set at $18.50. This is $2.00 per hundredweight higher than when initially announced last fall in the Northern Plains. Taking into account oil premiums that are offered at the crush plants on oil content above 40% at a rate of 2% price premium for each 1% of oil above 40%; this pushes a $18.50 contract with 45% oil content gross return over $20.00 per cwt. Crushers are still offering 2016 new crop NuSun and high oleic sunflower contracts. The weather forecast continues to feature generally favorable conditions throughout the Midwest with no significant hot and dry conditions during the next ten days. Weather conditions will be key going forward as August is the most important month for oilseed crops. The market will continue to trade weather and demand news this week.

Crushers are still offering 2016 new crop Act of God (AOG) NuSun and high oleic sunflower contracts.
