Grains Report - Thursday, July 8

General Comments: Winter Wheat markets were mixed yesterday and Minneapolis Spring Wheat was higher as the rain forecast for Spring Wheat areas is now less and as the Winter Wheat harvest continues. Yield reports have generally been good in Winter Wheat areas. Trends are mixed on the daily charts for the Winter Wheat markets. Minneapolis Spring What closed strong even with forecasts for some rains in important growing areas. There are ideas that the rains will not help much as they are late. The dry and hot weather seen to date have produced very low crop condition ratings and conditions are not expected to improve much if at all in coming weeks. Winter Wheat yield reports are strong, so the supply will likely be good once the harvest is complete. There have been some rains in the region to keep the harvest pressure on the slow side but the quality seems good. However, the Spring Wheat situation is different and a short crop is increasingly likely.
