This Week on SUNUP - Dr. Kim Anderson Breaks Down the Recent WASDE Report Numbers

This Week on SUNUP - Dr. Kim Anderson Breaks Down the Recent WASDE Report Numbers This week on SUNUP, Oklahoma State University Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson breaks down the latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) with host, Lyndall Stout.


This report did not contain any real surprises, according to Anderson. Most projections hit their targets fairly close, with US wheat projected at 1.135 billion bushels, coming in at 1.129 billion bushels. Corn projected at 2.317 billion bushels, estimated now at 2.30 billion bushels. And if there were any surprises, Anderson says soybeans were probably it, projected at 418 million bushels, coming in at 435 - almost 15 million bushels more than last year.


Anderson explains that since 2007, world production has jumped form 22.5 billion bushels in wheat to 27 billion last year. On average harvested acres, yields have steadily increased from 42 bu./acre to 50 this past year. Anderson says, we have not seen that sort of increase here in the US.


“That’s why we have record production,” he said. “That’s why we have low prices.”


The good news, though as reported by Anderson, is that consumption worldwide - is up.


As for his price expectations of this marketing year, Anderson predicts that with good test weight and protein, $4.25 for wheat here in Oklahoma is within reach. Optimistically, he bets too that if worldwide, yields are low, it is possible that prices could extend as high as $5.00.
