No Extension Announced Yet for Black Sea Grain Initiative 

On Friday, officials from Russia and the United Nations convened in Switzerland to try to work out an extension of the Black Sea Grain Initiative, which is set to expire on November 19th. 

The agreement, which was brokered by the U.N. and Turkey over the summer, allows for Ukrainian grain shipments and Russian exports of key agricultural commodities including fertilizer amid the ongoing war.

Russia briefly pulled out of the deal two weeks ago due to an alleged Ukrainian drone attack on its Black Sea fleet in Crimea. 

Russian authorities have not yet decided on whether to extend the agreement. An extension could ease concerns about a global food shortage, particularly for countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia that rely heavily on grains, vegetable oils, and other goods from both Russia and Ukraine...

Wheat Futures Plummet as Russia Rejoins Black Sea Grain Initiative

Russia has rejoined the Black Sea Grain Initiative just days after announcing its withdrawal from the deal on Saturday.

Ukrainian grain shipments will resume Wednesday at noon, easing some concerns about global food insecurity—particularly for countries that are heavily reliant on agricultural imports to meet their needs...

Value-conscious consumers are already seeking out lower-value cuts, trading down from branded to private label alternatives at retail, and limiting foodservice purchases, adding further weakness to premium product markets. Holiday sales will test the market’s resilience and its ability to absorb premiums. Lower GDP growth expectations in 2023 will limit market needs, slow herd-rebuilding efforts, and impact...

WASDE Data Shows Lower Projected Corn Crop and Lower U.S. Exports

In the latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report, the USDA's outlook for U.S. feed-grain is for lower production, domestic use, exports and ending stocks, and higher prices. The corn crop is projected at 14.5 billion bushels, which is down 4.3% from last year.
