This Week on SUNUP - Dr. Kim Anderson Reviews Wheat Market Dynamics of the Last Two Weeks

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 18:20:42 CDT

This Week on SUNUP - Dr. Kim Anderson Reviews Wheat Market Dynamics of the Last Two Weeks It has been two weeks since Dr. Kim Anderson, Oklahoma State University grain market economist, appeared on SUNUP. Since that time, there has been a $0.45 drop in the price of wheat. Dave Deken of SUNUP asked Anderson to explain what has happened that has caused this dip in the wheat market.


“I think the market is just watching the crop out in the field,” Anderson answered.


Across the state and wheat growing regions, around the country and the world for that matter, are looking to be in relatively good conditions at the moment.


Anderson says the market, anticipating - not a big crop, but a good quality crop, has responded with a drop in prices, as little to no decline in supply is expected come harvest time.


Currently for Oklahoma, wheat prices fall between $3.20 and $3.50, mostly around $3.33 - $3.35.


Anderson continues to advise producers to stick with the strategy of using all available technologies and management options to produce the highest quality crop possible to remain competitive in a global marketplace now adjusting to increased production in Russia and the Ukraine, lower foreign taxes and a high dollar.
