Kim Anderson Says Wheat Market Watching Lack of Rainfall in Southern Plains as a Market Key- Plus SUNUP Notes for This Weekend

Fri, 07 Jan 2011 4:39:52 CST

Kim Anderson Says Wheat Market Watching Lack of Rainfall in Southern Plains as a Market Key- Plus SUNUP Notes for This Weekend Oklahoma State Univesity Extension Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson says that current wheat prices have hit a new, higher plateau- especially for the hard red winter wheat that is traded in Kansas City. Anderson believes there are several factors helping support the current wheat price picture- and weather is one of those factors. He expects that we will have a "weather market" as we get into the February thru April time period, with the market watching precipitation- or the lack of it- closely in the southern Great Plains. He predicts, with his tongue in his cheek- that we will kill the wheat crop this year at least seven times before harvest.

Nearby- the next piece of news that the market will digest will be the winter wheat acreage numbers that will be released next Wednesday, January 12. Anderson agrees with other market watchers that more acres were planted this past fall- and says we will see how many acres USDA actually found when the numbers come out that morning.

You can see Lyndall and Kim talk about these issues on Saturday morning on SUNUP- or you can click on the LISTEN BAR and get a preview of that part of the show right now.

Besides Dr. Anderson's conversation with Lyndall Stout of SUNUP, this weekend's program offers a variety of stories for you to check out. Here's the lineup:
