Midweek Markets: China, China, China

Catch up with the latest analysis on the latest round of huge soybean purchases, whether we think trendline yields are possible this year and more. (audio)

It’s hard to talk about soybeans without talking about China, which is by far the world’s No. 1 soybean importer.

Prices have moved higher, but perhaps not as much as some farmers would have hoped. The weather has had more than a little to do with that. We predict whether corn and soybean yields have a shot at making trendline yields this year, talk about the ongoing spate of volatile wheat prices and much more.
