OSU's Kim Anderson Talks with SUNUP About World Harvest Expectations for WheatThu, 07 May 2020 15:03:15 CDT
Oklahoma State University Extension Grains Market Analyst Dr. Kim Anderson talks about what is going on in the Wheat Markets weekly on SUNUP.
This week Dr. Anderson talks about the 2020 Wheat Harvest. Anderson said Oklahoma came up with 96.5 million bushels which is pretty close to the estimate, and the United states is 1.9 billion, right at last years numbers. Anderson said there is also a chance that corn prices could have an impact on this years wheat prices. We expect to see a 15 billion bushel crop for corn next year, and Anderson said that tells him that corn prices are going to stay relatively low.
