Choppy markets head into weekend

Focus turns to spring planting as floods loom. (Video report)

Grain markets continue to show signs that winter lows are in, with prices trending higher this week. Overnight trade is choppy in fairly narrow ranges as the first half of March goes into the books. Attention is turning to new crop thanks to flooding not only on the Mississippi River system but in the Dakotas and Nebraska as well following the inland hurricane, with a huge snowpack in the upper Midwest threatening more soggy conditions.
