Tuesday 9:15 AM Commentary

Market Direction:  Corn down 6 (oc) & 3 (nc); Soy up 16 & 19.

USDA pegged corn planting at 86% complete compared to 72% last week, 94% last year and right at the 5-year average of 87%.  Beans were said to be 66% complete compared to 50% last week, 83% last year, but again in lockstep with the 5-year average of 67%.

The weekly Crop Progress Report confirmed corn planting is still lagging in particularly MN and ND with former 10 points behind average & the latter 7 behind.  Back of the napkin math suggests approximately 1.3 million corn acres “might not” get planted with the offset being rapid progress in other states.

Scattered showers are forecast through tomorrow in the Eastern Corn Belt, mostly dry weather Friday and Saturday. Temps above to well above normal today, near to below normal for the rest of the week.

Financial markets are mixed today, as worries over a possible recession, inflations and rising interest rates continue.

Showers moved in to ECB, followed by normal temps. 

Beans on the turn around after losing nearly 50c yesterday.

USDA planting at 86% on corn, 66% on beans.
