2017 Crop Tour Results

On Wednesday Tom Miller and Tom Edwards went out to check yields in our trade area. 

The following are just a few of Tom's notes on what they found.

  1. Lots and lots of variability.  From one field to the next and even within the fields we saw all kinds of variability.  It was obvious that if one field got some rain, the field across the road or a mile down the road did not.
  2. Things look better than we thought they would.  My jaw dropped when we walked out of the first field and did the calculations to come up with a 203 bu yield.  This was only a mile from the plant and we knew that area had been dry all through pollination.  We saw this all over, even the dry areas didn’t look bad, or at least not as bad as we thought.
  3. Tall or short, doesn’t matter.  I always thought that the taller the corn, the better the yield.  Maybe that is true most years, but not this year.  
  4. Looks like harvest will be later this year.  Last year we did the crop tour on August 19 and most of the corn was denting.  This year that was not the case.  And now with August weather as cool/wet as it is, maturity is slow.
  5. South Dakota looks really good, at least where we were.  I would argue that it looks better than a lot of Iowa.
  6. If you ever want to have a good time go on a road trip with Tom Edwards.  That dude is a riot!

Edwards Market Thoughts

9/25/17 8:00am

Corn is slightly lower this morning as this week is expected to see increasing harvest across the Midwest.

Showers this morning stretching from KS to MN will slow harvest 1-2 days but clear weather is seen the balance of the week.

Corn yield reports remains varied with better than expected yields in parts of KS, MO and IA while the replanted corn in IL running lower than the corn planted on-time this spring.

US farmer selling is generally light though some parts of the Midwest, like in MO, where corn yields are better than expected are seeing some selling of surplus bushels.

Friday's Commitment of Traders report showed the funds/managed money adding another 15k contracts of shorts to put them short over 134k contracts now.

Sept 1 Quarterly stocks report is out this Friday.
