Stabilize Your Nitrogen

Mar 14, 2022

28% of Nitrogen that farmers apply will be lost due to volatility, leaching, and denitrification. In recent years, many have compensated by applying even more Nitrogen to their fields. With Nitrogen prices skyrocketing (along with other fertilizers) it now makes more economic sense to protect your nitrogen applications with a nitrogen stabilizer.

March Grain Update

Mar 04, 2022

With the worst of the cold weather behind us, we are one step closer to warm weather and planting season. We have seen strong markets through the crop insurance spring pricing period and some good opportunities for further old and new crop sales. It is an incredibly volatile time, first pushed by South American drought and the Russia-Ukraine conflict has now created shockwaves. Ukraine is a major player in both the wheat and corn export markets which lead to a bullish initial reaction followed by a sharply lower reaction. Uncertainty is widespread in most global markets and grains are no exception.

Crop Input Planning

Mar 03, 2022

I want to start this out with a BIG thank you to all who have come in and made commitments and prepayments for your 2022 crop needs. This is a big help to get us off on the right foot with direction on what products to stock for the upcoming spring season.  As we head into the tail end of winter and turn the corner into spring, I want to take a few moments and comment on an opportunity that still lies ahead in the coming month: planning. Though discussions of planning ahead have happened over and over this past winter, it remains important as we get closer to spring.

I always look forward to turning the calendar on the month of February and seeing the first day of spring quickly approaching. The sun seems to shine a bit brighter and longer in the afternoon, and the snow piles get a little smaller each day. What the weather will look like for the month of March remains to be seen, but the decline of COVID, and rolling back of a nearly two-year mask mandate sure gets the month off to a great start.

March Energy News

Mar 03, 2022

By the time you read this month’s article, I will have turned 60 and retired from the Army Reserve. (Apparently they don’t want old guys.) I’ve had a lot of adventures, from sipping beer as a private in West Germany during the Cold War, to fighting insurgents as an infantry platoon sergeant in the Iraq War, and now I’m ending my career training today’s warriors. As I say goodbye to that chapter of my life, I’m by no means closing the book. I’m planning on having many new adventures. Hopefully they won’t make the newspaper or the nightly news.

February Grain Update

Feb 07, 2022

January  brought us an eventful start to the year in the grain markets. We pushed to new highs in November soybeans and December corn futures, and we are seeing strength in the nearby contracts as well for any stored grain you may want to price. It’s been a nice way to start the year. I’d encourage everyone to check the bids on our website regularly or get in touch with me to discuss a plan or selling objectives that you may have in mind. At the forefront of the market news is South American dryness as their crop progresses. Brazil’s soybean production estimates began at 144 million metric tons and have since been trimmed by the USDA to 139 million metric tons, with possible further reductions. 139 mmt would still be a record soybean crop, primarily due to expanding planted acreage offsetting yield decreases, but we need to keep a close eye on their weather as their summer season moves along. Argentina’s soybean production has seen slight estimate decreases as well. The January WASDE report saw a slight increase in corn ending stocks relative to the previous month due to acreage increases, while the soybean ending stocks were close to unchanged. They stand at 1.54 billion bushels and 350 million bushels respectively. This puts corn stocks/use at 10.4% vs 10.1% in December and 8.3% the previous year. Soybeans are 8% vs 7.8% in December and 5.7% last year. So, the big picture is showing increases in U.S. ending stocks as compared to last year. The next USDA WASDE report is on February 9th. Please get in touch if you are wondering about estimates or post report details.
