Higher Soybean Prices Make the Oilseed Crop Attractive- Kim Anderson Talking Beans on SUNUPFri, 28 Jan 2011 6:23:10 CST
Oklahoma State University Extenstion Grain Marketing Economist Kim Anderson says that soybean stocks have gotten progressively tighter since mid 2010- and that has been reflected in a higher trend for soybean prices.
Looking to the 2011 soybean planting decisions that are now being made by US farmers- the higher prices for soybeans are battling for more acres for the oilseed- and many Oklaoma farmers are among producers all over the midwest into the south that are looking at more acres of soybeans in 2011 in response.
For wheat producers, Dr. Anderson tells Lyndall Stout of SUNUP that he's not sure how much higher current wheat prices can go- the dollar increase in hard red winter wheat prices in recent days can be laid at the feet of those who are concerned about global food shortages. This element of fear seems to be an underlying driver in our current wheat market.
