Market Comments

Cargill in West Fargo and ADM Enderlin are offering 2015 new crop NuSun cash and Act of God clause (AOG) contracts. The Cargill plant is also offering a bid for 2014 High Oleic sunflower at a premium to NuSun prices. It was another tough week on the CBoT. Traders are focused on the upside of yield potential for soybeans and corn based on favorable harvest weather and its implication towards building ending stocks both in the U.S. and for the world. This led to price pressure across all crops. This and talk of higher 2015 soybean planted acres in South America and in the US could send CBoT soybean futures even lower in the weeks ahead. The Northern Plains had abnormally high temperatures last week. Before this heat wave the majority of the US sunflower crop was far from being made and needed the additional heat units to finish. Overall the sunflower crop still needs more heat units to finish but the past week has taken out some of the weather risk for the time being. Weather conditions and the weekly USDA crop progress report will be the main market drivers.
