Welcome to Almira Farmers Warehouse Co.'s Grain information site!
8/20/14 AM Chatter about a potential Ukrainian wheat export ban and production cuts supported yesterday's futures action. Details are scarce and confusion promoted buying. Without clear updates, the story loses impact; rallies are difficult to sustain. The Pro Farmer crop tour findings show record corn and bean yield prospects. The tour continues and the results are feeding the bears. Some global quality woes persists. However, crop prospects and total world wheat output remains formidable. Japan is in this week to buy 146,858 Mt of US, Canadian, and Australian wheat. Steady by jerks.
8/20/14 PM Wheat futures wobbled down and again tested the lower end of the charts. SWW track bids didn't budge much. Farm selling still an infrequent event. Harvest is in the late stages. No surprise; higher average protein and a smaller than average crop.
