Market Comments

USDA's first 2014 sunflower production forecast for all types combined is 2.45 billion pounds, up 21 percent from 2013. Area planted, at 1.57 million acres, is down 8 percent from the June estimate and is down fractionally from last year. Sunflower growers expect to harvest 1.51 million acres, down 7 percent from June but up 2 percent from the 2013 acreage. The October yield forecast for all types, at 1,626 pounds per acre, is 248 pounds higher than last year's yield. As of October 1, higher yields are expected in 7 of the 9 sunflower reporting states compared with last year. For corn and soybeans, USDA predicted even larger crops than it did in September, with corn production now at 14.475 billion bushels and soybeans at 3.93 billion. The corn and soybean numbers were within the range of private trade forecasts, although both were a little smaller than the averages of those forecasts. With the USDA production estimate in the market, trader's attention will now return to Midwest harvest progress reports.
The weather forecast for sunflower production areas looks to be favorable with above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation in the next two weeks which should hasten drydown and aid in harvest.
