Kim Anderson Says It Was a Tough Week for Wheat Prices - But a Small Rally Might Be in the Future

Kim Anderson Says It Was a Tough Week for Wheat Prices - But a Small Rally Might Be in the Future Wheat harvest is rolling on across much of the state, but it’s hard to ignore the hit wheat prices took this week. OSU Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson says the lower prices compared to the last few weeks are most likely from higher-than-expected yields.

“You know we talked about adequate space and we thought we had adequate space to put everything, but I think there’s some elevators running out of space,” he says. “When they run out of space, then they gotta lower that basis because they’re going to lose some wheat if they have to put it out in bunkers or on ground storage.”

Anderson says the cash price was down $.50 to $.60. The market lost $.40 on the futures price and another $.05 to $.15 on the basis depending on the location.

Looking forward, Anderson says prices may continue to fall slightly but the bottom is near.

“The market will probably waller sideways from here, and then I think we’re going to get a rally before we get into planting time,” he says. “Some producers just aren’t going to plant wheat if this price doesn’t go higher because they’re planting at below cost of production.”
