The USDA WASDE Came out Last Week and OSU's Kim Anderson Commented on the Current Oklahoma and National Markets

Thu, 16 May 2019 18:12:05 CDT

The USDA WASDE Came out Last Week and OSU's Kim Anderson Commented on the Current Oklahoma and National Markets On this week’s episode of SUNUP, host Kurtis Hair this weekend, Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson talks about the current and future prices of wheat.    

The USDA World Agricultural Supply & Demand Estimates Report (WASDE) came out last Friday, and it has some important information for wheat producers. It projects record world wheat projection and record world wheat ending stocks. The projection for the 2019-2020 wheat marketing year is $4.70/bu compare that to the 2018-2019 marketing year price of $5.20/bu and $4.71/bu in 2017. Anderson said, in 2017 the U.S. averaged $4.71/bu while Oklahoma only averaged right around $4.00/bu. The lack in price in Oklahoma was due to quality, which Anderson thinks points out the importance of quality.    

In the Black Sea Region the USDA has predicted that Russia will produce 2.8 billion bushels of wheat. Russia themselves have predicted production to be 2.9-3.0 billion bushels. The stocks are tight but it looks like they will have a good crop this year.    

In Oklahoma this week the market prices were up .21/bu. However, Anderson fears it may be a “dead cat bounce” after the rise in prices slowed the later part of the week.    Overall, Oklahoma wheat growers should expect low prices this year, unless the crop in the Black Sea Region is lost.    

You can watch their visit tomorrow or Sunday on SUNUP- but you can hear Kim's comments right now by clicking on the LISTEN BAR below.

-Back at Lahoma, Brett Carver gives us an update on how Oklahoma State University wheat varieties have performed this year.    

-In Food Whys, Darren Scott breaks down who actually needs to worry about gluten.
