Grains Report - Wednesday, Aug. 19

WHEAT
General Comments: Winter Wheat markets were lower in response to reports of weaker overseas prices, especially in the Black Sea area. Europe remains high priced due to drought in France, but improving yield reports in Russia have hurt prices in the Black Sea. Spring Wheat was developing under good growing conditions in both the US and Canada. Yield reports from the central and southern Great Plains have been variable, but generally a little better than expected. Soft Red Winter yields are high. Russian Winter Wheat yields have improved over time as harvesters move into areas that had better-growing conditions, but Spring Wheat yields are expected to be variable due to declining crop conditions in those growing areas. Australia remains in good condition. About half of the Argentine Wheat belt is too dry.
Overnight News: The southern Great Plains should get mostly dry conditions. Temperatures should be above normal. Northern areas should see scattered showers. Temperatures will average near to above normal. The Canadian Prairies should see scattered showers. Temperatures should average near to above normal.
