OSU's Kim Anderson Talks Dirty Wheat and More as Harvest Looms

Tue, 18 May 2010 5:56:31 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Talks Dirty Wheat and More as Harvest Looms OSU Extension Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson talked with us at length this past Friday at the OSU North Central Field Station Wheat Tour in Lahoma. Anderson says we are starting to see the expectation of a good harvest in the southern Great Plains weigh on wheat prices on the Kansas City Board of Trade- and that translates into cash wheat prices across Oklahoma below $4 a bushel. Dr. Anderson sees little prospect of that improving during harvest itself, but believes that storing a half to two thirds of the crop could be a good marketing strategy in 2010.

Dr. Anderson does issue a warning that if you have weeds in your field- beware of the extremely punitive discounts that elevators are planning to impose this harvest, after getting stuck with millions of bushels of substandard wheat in the last couple of harvest seasons. Dr. Anderson says that the relatively low prices for clean wheat, along with the aggressive discount schedule that farmers will run into with too much dockage in their harvested grain will likely push even more wheat acres into other crops that can help break the weed cycle and also reduce some of the huge overhang of supplies to the market.
