Kim Anderson Talks Wheat Price Stability on This Weekend's SUNUPFri, 29 Aug 2014 03:32:50 CDT
Wheat prices in Oklahoma and the southern great plains are determined more and more by the global wheat market, as US wheat market is a smaller percentage of the overall worldwide wheat production pie, especially compared to ten or fifteen years ago. Exension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson says that with most of the world wheat harvest done for the year- wheat prices here in the state may be going mostly sideways over the next few months.
Cash wheat prices have held just above six dollars a bushel since June and the rather poor 2014 Oklahoma wheat harvest, and Anderson tells Lyndall Stout on this week's SUNUP that he sees little chance of those cash prices being pushed below that six dollar mark.
