DTN Oat And Barley News

DTN Closing Grain Comments 12/13 13:55 Soybeans End Lower; Initial Purchase Disappoints USDA announced its first significant soybean purchase from China for 2018-19, but January soybeans dropped 13 cents on disappointment that the first sale was only 41.5 million bushels. Wheat prices closed higher with help from slightly higher export sales reported in Thursday's weekly numbers.

DTN Midday Grain Comments 12/13 11:44 Grains Mixed at Midday Wheat leads at midday, with soybeans struggling with some double-digit losses. By David Fiala DTN Contributing Analyst General Comments The U.S. stock market indices are mixed with the Dow futures up 60. The interest rate products are mixed. The dollar index is 15 higher. Energies are mixed with crude up $0.40. Livestock trade is mixed. Precious metals are flat to higher with gold down $2.50. CORN Corn trade is flat to 1 cent higher with quiet midday trade with upside momentum slowing. Corn basis looks to be flat in the near term with better weather improving movement potential. Ethanol margins remain under pressure with energies remaining at the lower end of the range and ethanol futures remaining flat. The weekly export sales were in line with recent week at 903,200 metric tons. Milder weather should allow harvest to wrap up overall, and allow for better movement. On the March chart the 20-, 50-, and 100-day moving averages at $3.77-$3.79 is our chart support area with resistance at the new high scored at $3.87 3/4. SOYBEANS Soybean trade is 9 to 11 cents lower with trade settling back into the range as Chinese purchases are confirmed with more focus switching back to what it would take to significantly reduce our carryout. Meal is $2.00 to $3.00 lower and oil is 25 to 35 points lower. South America continues to make good progress with early harvest approaching fast with a few dry pockets in Brazil drawing more worry. Basis will provide signals on the quantity of nearby cash business getting done with flat to slightly firmer trade so far this week. China purchases look to be in the 1.5 million to 2.0 million metric tons the last couple days with 1.13 confirmed on the daily wire today. The weekly export sales were soft with 792,300 metric tons of beans, 50,500 of meal, and 5,900 of oil. January support is at the 10-day at $9.10, which we are testing at midday. Resistance is the 200-day at $9.37. Wheat Wheat trade is 2 to 9 cents higher with improving exports and better chart momentum and Kansas City trade leading the market. The dollar has firmed slightly this morning with trade remaining near the upper end of the range. Australian harvest will continue in the near term. North American winter wheat is seeing milder weather. Russian/Ukrainian tensions have ramped up again. The weekly export sales were strong at 754,100 metric tons showing some building momentum On the March Kansas City chart support is at the 20-day at $5.00 that we cleared last week with the 50-day at $5.18 the next round up which we are above at midday with only the 100-day above the market now at $5.44.

By Tregg Cronin DTN Contributing Analyst 6:00 a.m. CME Globex: March corn was up 1/4 cent, January soybeans were down 1 1/4 cents, and March KC wheat was up 5 cents.

Baby your canola in the bin 09/07 -from www.aginfonet.com You can't just dump canola in the bin and expect it to stay in great shape until you're ready to sell. Canola Council of Canada agronomist David Vanthuyne says "you have to baby canola in the bin"! Vanthuyne advises growers to condition canola to safe temperature and moisture levels and then regularly monitor the binned crop for signs of mould or heating. Conditioning involves moving air through the seed to prevent spoilage that results from moisture migration and seed respiration. Vanthuyne says canola harvested much above 8% moisture must be conditioned, especially if grain temperatures are above 25 C. He says the object is to cool the seed below 15 C and lower its moisture content to 8% moisture. "Aeration and/or turning the canola can be an effective way to avoid spoilage", Vanthuyne says. But if moisture levels are above 10% to 12%, he recommends heated air drying. Growers can't drop their vigil once they've conditioned canola. Freshly harvested canola can maintain a high respiration rate for up to six weeks before becoming dormant. Vanthuyne explains that "this sweating stage is a very unstable condition for binned canola". The agronomist suggests growers monitor binned canola regularly because rapidly respiring seed produces heat and moisture, which favour storage mould growth. "Over time, the seed may become mouldy or heat damaged, and in severe cases it can ignite," he adds.

Effective April 15, USDA is changing the way it calculates marketing loan repayment rates and loan deficiency payments. DTN is exploring whether we can publish the new calculations, which will be based on 5-day or 30-day moving averages. Until then, the rates can be found at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/FSA/displayLDPRates?area=home&subject=prsu&topic=ldp-ldp
