This Week on SUNUP - Kim Anderson Explains Why Egypt's Purchase of Wheat is Good News for US

This Week on SUNUP - Kim Anderson Explains Why Egypt's Purchase of Wheat is Good News for US This week on SUNUP! - OSU’s Dr. Kim Anderson joins host Lyndall Stout once again talking wheat prices and this time he says, there is some hope on the horizon that wheat prices could get an uptick as we move through harvest into the fall.

“I think there’s some hope in sight,” he said. “If we have a good quality crop, I think we may see slightly higher prices.”

According to Anderson the price for wheat right now is hovering between $3.30 and $3.50 with a basis at -.95 to -.75 and the loan rate at $2.97.

Meanwhile, the US has sold two different loads of HRW to Egypt this week, each contract for 60,000 metric tons, or roughly 2.2 million bushels for $5.08 and $5.05 at port. The freight to Egypt was $0.56 and $0.61/bu. totaling $5.64 and $5.66 on board at Egypt.

“That’s very good news for wheat,” Anderson said. “It’s been a while since we’ve sold wheat into Egypt.”

That price fell below that of other competing countries such as Russia, Romania and Ukraine, offering wheat within a range of $5.36 and $5.39.

“Our price was the lowest, so that means we’re competitive on the world market,” Anderson said.
