Market Update for April 13, 2018

Ben Potter talks about how the markets finished the week. (audio)

It's been a topsy-turvy week in the markets and weather. 

Corn, wheat and soybeans were all down on Friday.

There's snow on the ground in Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota with a Blizzard Warning in six states. Xanto is expected to bring a foot of snow to parts of Minnesota.

Next week, look for USDA to release its Crop Progress report on Monday afternoon.
