Midweek Markets: Is the table set for trendline yields?

Catch up with the latest analysis on weather trends, an impressive streak of soybean sales, mysterious seeds of dubious origin/intent, and much more.

Mother Nature is always prone to throwing a curveball or two, but statistically speaking, the hottest weather of the year is likely behind us now. What does that mean for yield potential? What are the odds of matching or exceeding corn trendline yields of 178.5 bushels per acre and soybean trendline yields of 49.8 bpa?

Those are just a few of the questions we attempted to answer in the latest Midweek Markets podcast. We also delved into wheat price volatility and the ongoing attempts at ethanol demand recovery.

And what’s up with those mysterious seed packets that arrived in mailboxes across the country earlier this month? It may sound like the plot to a bad sci-fi book, but we speculate about what may actually be going on.

Listen to the latest Midweek Markets podcast for July 29, 2020.
