DTN Early Word Grains 10/21 05:54 Grain Markets Higher as Harvest Delays Persist December corn is up 2 cents per bushel, November soybeans are up 5 1/2 cents, and December K.C. wheat is up 3 1/4 cents. By Tregg Cronin DTN Contributing Analyst 6:00 a.m. CME Globex: December corn is up 2 cents per bushel, November soybeans are up 5 1/2 cents, and December K.C. wheat is up 3 1/4 cents. CME Globex Recap: Global equity markets are higher around the globe, despite a weekend vote in the U.K. that failed to secure backing for an official 'Brexit.' According to financial media, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will make another attempt Monday to secure a win with parliament and have his Brexit deal with the European Union supported. Grain markets have shaken off early session weakness to post gains across the board as additional delays loom with U.S. harvest as a giant band of moisture stretches from eastern Texas to North Dakota and works east. The weekly progress report on Monday afternoon should show sizable delays relative to average on both corn and soybean harvest, although decent progress was made on bean harvest before the weekend moisture. No updates to the U.S.-China trade deal, but that will continue to grab headlines as we get ready for the economic conference in Chile which both President Trump and President Xi are expected to attend. OUTSIDE MARKETS: Previous closes Friday showed the Dow Jones Industrial Average down 255.68 at 26,770.20 and the S&P 500 down 11.75 at 2,997.95 while the 10-Year Treasury yield ended at 1.747%. Early Monday, the December DJIA futures are up 31 points. Asian markets are higher with Japan's Nikkei 225 up 56.22 (0.25%) and China's Shanghai Composite up 1.48 points (0.05%). European markets are higher with London's FTSE 100 up 6.8 points (0.1%), Germany's DAX up 68.09 points (0.54%) and France's CAC 40 up 3.87 points (0.07%). The December Euro is up 0.000 at 1.120 and the December U.S. dollar index is down 0.063 at 96.945. The December 30-Year T-Bond is down 22/32nds, while December gold is down $0.10 at $1,494.00 and November crude oil is down $0.40 at $53.38. Soybeans on China's Dalian Exchange were up 0.12% while soybean meal was up 1.46%.

DTN Closing Grain Comments 10/18 13:54 Grains Finish Week Mixed; U.S. Dollar Lower Friday finished with modest gains in soybeans and winter wheat, while corn and spring wheat closed lower. Chicago wheat posted the biggest gain among grain contracts this week with some help from a 1% drop in the U.S. dollar index.

DTN Midday Grain Comments 10/18 11:28 Grains Mixed at Midday Soybeans and wheat lead mixed trade at midday. By David Fiala DTN Contributing Analyst General Comments The U.S. stock market is flat to lower with the Dow down 80. The dollar index is 15 lower. Interest rate products are weaker. Energies are flat with crude up $0.05. Livestock trade is weaker. Precious metals are mixed with gold down $2.80. CORN Corn trade is 3 cents lower at midday with range-bound action continuing ahead of the weekend. Fresh bullish news lacking and light harvest pressure is noted. Harvest will remain slow but should show progress through the end of the week before wetter weather returns to the east with beans getting more attention this week. Ethanol futures are flat at midday keeping margins stable. Basis remains flat to weaker with anticipation of more inbound bushels soon. South American corn planting but is running behind normal with mixed weather views at this early juncture in the Southern Hemisphere growing season. The weekly export sales were soft at 368,800 metric tons. On the December contract support is at the 20-day moving average at $3.86 1/2; the market is flirting with the $3.92 10-day here at midday. Chart resistance is at the upper Bollinger Band at 4.02. SOYBEANS Soybeans are 4 to 6 cents higher at midday gaining back some of the noted long profit-taking losses seen earlier this week. Meal is $2.50 higher with soybean oil up 12 points. The soybean market is overbought and seeing consolidation after the September into October strength with the momentum into Monday following the friendly USDA report last week. Crush margins remain solidly positive. The ral has gained slightly against the dollar this week. Bean basis should see pressure as combines continue to roll. South America should make more progress this week and into the second half of the months with some weather issues remaining and planting pace solidly behind. The weekly export sales were strong at 1.6 million metric tons, 152,900 of meal, and 4,000 pounds of oil. On the November chart, support is the 10-day at $9.28 with the upper Bollinger Band at $9.49 as resistance. WHEAT Wheat trade is 2 cents lower to 2 cents higher with light selling overnight after new highs were scored for the move on the back of Chicago strength. The Chicago/Kansas City December spread is 97 cents with trade hitting new highs again. Remaining spring wheat will likely not be cut at this point. The corn/HRW spread has widened back to 38 cents from 13 cents at the recent low, working wheat back out of rations. Export action continues to be dominated by Black Sea origin with more sales to Egypt and neighboring countries this week. The weekly export sales remained in the recent range at 395,100 metric tons. The December Kansas City chart support is the 10-day at $4.18 with the 100-day at 4.40 the next level up with the upper Bollinger Band right at overnight trade at $4.31.

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.
