OSU's Kim Anderson Says Current Cotton Prices are Excellent

Thu, 28 Oct 2021 17:47:32 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Says Current Cotton Prices are Excellent This week on SUNUP, Oklahoma State University Grain Marketing Specialist Kim Anderson talks about wheat planting progress, as well as soybean, sorghum and cotton harvest progress. He also shares good news about crop prices.

According to Anderson, farmers have yet to sell about 25% of Oklahoma’s 2021 wheat crop and planting is well underway for the 2022 wheat crop. The 2021 corn harvest is nearly complete, with about 10% left in Oklahoma fields. The 2021 Oklahoma grain sorghum harvest is a little behind corn, with 30% still in the field. Lastly, farmers are a little more than halfway done with the 2021 Oklahoma soybean harvest and a little more than a quarter through Oklahoma’s 2021 cotton crop.

“If you look at those prices, they are relatively good,” Anderson said.

2021 harvested wheat and forward-contracted wheat is priced at $7.40, according to Anderson. 2021 corn is going for about $5.25 and 2022 corn is going for about $5.10. 2021 grain sorghum is priced around $5.25 and 2022 is priced around $5. 2021 Oklahoma soybean prices have fallen to $11.75 and $11.50 for 2022 forward contracts.
