Urner Barry Releases June Soy & Wheat Report
According to the Ukraine Grain Association, grain silos in Ukraine are about half full leading up to this year's harvest, which means crops could be left in the ground if Russia continues blocking ports. Without access to its Black Sea ports, Ukraine would be able to export 20 million tons of grains next year at best. These exports would likely be more sunflower seeds than corn and wheat. Currently, Ukraine is attempting to ship its crop via...

Rich Nelson from Allendale, Inc Weighs in on the Grain Situation
Nearby CBOT corn futures slid to a six-week floor on Tuesday following USDA’s latest Crop Progress report, which indicated that corn plantings were up to 72% complete. The latest figure was below the 5-year average but an impressive catch-up over the past few weeks.
Despite the progress, the 72% of corn planted as of Sunday, May 22, represented the second slowest pace for that week in over 25 years. On Wednesday, corn futures closed mostly lower but recovered some of their earlier declines. The old crop July contract managed to hold onto a ½ cent gain and ended at $7.72 ¼ a bushel.
The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war has impacted the old-crop outlook due to stalled grain supplies from Ukraine’s Black Sea ports. The trade disruptions have restricted the global supply of grain and energy, exerting additional upward pressure on prices...

Latest AgriBriefing Webinar: Many Markets Nervous as No End in Sight for Rising Raw Materials Prices
Russia’s war against Ukraine and subsequent blockade of Ukraine’s grain exports by sea have sparked an unprecedented global food crisis. The disruption has been further exacerbated by hot weather and droughts that have hurt crops in other parts of the world, sending prices of some grains to record highs and threatening food security in parts of the developing world too.
And if we factor in challenging growing seasons for crops, lockdowns in major Chinese cities, bird flu in the US, and other pressure points for import, export, and production, the concerns over agricultural markets and global demand are unlikely to relent.
Experts from AgriBriefing's brands – Stratégie Grains, Feedinfo, and Urner Barry – came together in a live webinar entitled ‘Rising Raw Materials Prices: Why? How? What’s Next?’ on 24 May to provide their latest overviews of...
Urner Barry Releases May Soy & Wheat Report
In the latest WASDE report, the USDA stated that the outlook for 2022/23 wheat this May is reduced supplies, lower exports, and higher prices. U.S. 2022/23 wheat supplies are projected down 3%, as lower beginning stocks more than offset a larger harvest. All wheat production is estimated at 1,729 million bushels, up 83 million from a year ago. Also, all wheat yield is projected at 46.6 bushels per acre, a slight increase from last year.

Urner Barry Releases May Pulse Protein Report
For pulses like dry edible beans, prospective area declines are anticipated to continue in 2022. Spring weather is an important factor and is posing threats again this year with dry conditions across several dry bean growing regions. April 2022 marked the seventh month of the 2021/22 dry bean marketing year which began in September 2021 and will end in August. Although planting decisions have been made, a variety of factors can influence the final crop mix well into the spring and early summer.
In addition to dry spring weather, key economic factors affecting reduced dry bean area include surging input costs for items like fuel and fertilizer, and elevated prices for...

Concerns Mount Over Global Cooking Oil Supply As Russia-Ukraine War Continues
Soybean futures rallied during overnight trading as traders assessed the tight global supply of cooking oils spurred by the ripple effects of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war.
Combined, Russia and Ukraine account for about 80% of the world’s sunflower oil exports. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has forced buyers to find alternatives to sunflower oil shipments, which have largely been stalled in Black Sea ports.
Port closures and shipping disruptions in the Black Sea region have elevated the prices of competing vegetable oils like palm oil—a common ingredient used in food, cosmetics, and cooking.
Indonesia, the world’s largest exporter of palm oil, announced last week that it will ban shipments of the product beginning April 28 in an effort to curb rising domestic prices...
