Market Commentary

Short covering was the CBOT’s theme of the day with nearly all ag markets closing higher. Slow crop maturity progress and the inability to conclude spring wheat harvest were major justifications for the day’s rally. Moreover, the weather is deteriorating quickly for parts of the U.S. Midwest, to the detriment of the corn and soybean crops. Over the next two days, a winter storm will slip south from Montana into the northwestern Plains states, bringing with it freezing temperatures and possible snow. Thursday brings the greatest chances of snow for significant crop-producing areas, with over half of the Dakotas and a third of Nebraska having a 50 percent chance or greater of receiving 1” or more of snow. Fortunately, the C...

Overnight news that Australia’s 2019/20 wheat crop will be smaller than expected set the stage for a sharp rally in the CBOT wheat markets. Morning calls were for wheat to open higher and pull corn along with it, which is exactly what happened. Few, if any, analysts, however, expected whe...

Illuminating the value of technical research

On behalf of a commodity producer organization, WPI evaluated the outputs from a project that featured a $5 million investment into technical research over multiple years. WPI’s team captured the results of this extensive effort and synthesized them for presentation to the organization’s governing board; among the findings uncovered and presented for the first time was the development of genomic traits proven, via rigorous testing, to provide crop yield advantages of 50 percent or more to U.S. farmers in times of drought. Capturing measurable results from long-term efforts can be challenging. Educating clients on the dynamics of success measurement when quantifiable results are not readily available requires deep client-consultant collaboration and an ability to consider both near- and long-term client aspirations with market/policy dynamics – attributes that WPI brings to every consulting engagement.
