Grains Report - Friday, July 10

WHEAT
General Comments: Winter Wheat markets were mostly higher as the Winter Wheat harvest expanded north and as the Spring Wheat was developing under good growing conditions. Only HRW futures settled near unchanged. The weather in Europe and Russia caused the rally despite good things happening here. Russian producers are said to be disappointed in the yields and it has been dry in France and Britain. Yield reports from the HRW region of the US have been variable, but generally a little better than expected, so USDA might raise its production estimates nest month. The Winter Wheat markets hold to bearish trends on the weekly charts. It remains dry in the western sections of the Great Plains but this will aid harvest progress now. Australia remains in good condition. Prices usually move lower and remain down through the harvest.

RICE
General Comments: Rice was unchanged to a little higher in light volume trading. Futures can continue to generally trade lower as the Texas and southern Louisiana harvests are just a few weeks away and the crops are developing under mostly very good conditions. New crop prospects appear solid for increased production in the coming year. The combination of good export buying in general and the buying inside the US due to the Coronavirus has made the market short old crop Rice. There are ideas that the mills are well covered into new crop, but little Rice is available from producers. The crops that got planted are in very good condition in the south and near the Gulf Coast but planting was more problematic in parts of Mississippi, Arkansas, and Missouri. Ideas are that the long grain got planted and producers did not plant medium grain if some prevent planting was needed.
