Corn and Wheat Recover Ground on Friday While Soybeans Remain Pressured

Agricultural futures are trading on consolidation mode on Friday as investors are digesting fundamental situations and wet conditions in the US and dry weather in Russia and Australia.

Also, corn’s planting delays are raising speculations on a bigger than expected beans season.

Mark Feight, Managing Director at the International Agribusiness Group, said to AgDay show that in terms of prices, “soybeans tend to be the anchor right now keeping the corn from getting higher.”

“We believe, from a planting perspective, if we don’t plant corn, we’re going to have to plant a lot of beans in the market,” says Feight.

According to an AccuWeather prediction, corn planting remains at record low rate and the United States Department of Agriculture will confirm next week with its Crop Progress report.

“A new AccuWeather analysis estimates 82% of corn will be reported as planted in the 18 key US corn-producing states, a historic low for the second week of June since record keeping began in 1980,A new AccuWeather analysis estimates 82% of corn will be reported as planted in the 18 key US corn-producing states, a historic low for the second week of June since record keeping began in 1980,” the note says.
