Grains Report - Tuesday, Dec. 8


General Comments: Winter Wheat markets were lower to start the day, but rallied to close a little higher on the back of stronger Corn futures. World prices have held steady or worked a little higher even with additional supplies available to the market as Russian prices remain elevated. Australian supplies have increased as its harvest is moving forward. US weather is mixed with still dry conditions in the western Great Plains but better conditions in the Midwest. Parts of eastern Ukraine and southern Russia are getting some showers too. These have been late to help much with the establishment but will help with soil moisture into the Spring. Western Australia's conditions are good after some rains. The demand has held well and world prices remain relatively high. The market in Russia has remained high on limited supply as farmers hold the Wheat back due to the drought.

General Comments: Rice was higher in light volume trading. Trading reflected the lack of activity in the domestic cash market. Trading volumes have been less for the last couple of weeks. The cash market is slow and the lack of business is reflected in futures volumes traded. Reports indicate that domestic demand has been poor to average with better consumer demand more than offset by much less demand from schools and other institutions. The harvest is over with good field yields and generally good quality reported.
