Wheat futures were sharply lower on the day after weekend precip helped some wheat growing areas, but Kansas didn't get much. US wheat export inspections for the week of Feb 23 were 537,877 MT. That is down just 6.12% wk/wk, but still 38.8% above this time last year. The strong pace needs to continue in order to meet the USDA's recently revised full year forecast. Egypt is seeking wheat for April 1 through 10th. Japan is looking for 113,167 MT of Australian and US wheat in their weekly wheat tender ending March 1, with 85,417 MT being US specific. Ukraine’s winter wheat crop is estimated at 81.7% good to satisfactory. Russia projects their grain exports at 37 MMT, vs. their previous estimate of 40 MMT. Mar 17 CBOT Wheat settled at $4.18 3/4, down 12 1/2 cents, Mar 17 KCBT Wheat settled at $4.44, down 9 3/4 cents, Mar 17 MGEX Wheat settled at $5.35, down 9 3/4 cents
Soybean futures were mostly 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 cents lower. Bean meal and bean oil both settled lower on the session. Export inspections for soybeans were 704,945 MT, down 35.6% from last week and 33.2% vs. the same week a year ago. On Feb 2 inspections were 227.17 million bushels (mbu) ahead of last year at that time. As of this week's report, the year/year lead is down to 180.65 mbu. The China National Grain and Oils Information Center stated that the country’s soybean imports may decrease due to low crush margins. Avian flu is a concern, with liquidation of flocks and bans on open air marketing of live poultry. Brazil’s soybean harvest is estimated at 34.3 % complete, vs. the average of 26%. Mar 17 Soybeans settled at $10.11, down 2 1/2 cents, May 17 Soybeans settled at $10.22, down 2 1/4 cents, Jul 17 Soybeans settled at $10.31, down 2 1/4 cents, Aug 17 Soybeans settled at $10.30 1/2, down 2 1/2 cents, Mar 17 Soybean Meal settled at $331.10, down $0.20, Mar 17 Soybean Oil settled at $32.35, down $0.04
Corn futures were mostly 2 1/2 to 3 3/4 cents lower to start the week. US corn export inspections for the week ending 2/23 were 1,461,396 MT according to the Monday morning USDA report. That is up 25% from last week, and nearly double for the same week in 2016. DTN's national average cash price for Friday equates to a -37 3/4 cent basis vs. the March 17 futures contract. That compares to a -40 3/4 cent basis the day March took over as the lead month, and -34 1/2 cents on January 9. Gulf barge bids and asks were steady at 44 and 49 cents over March, respectively. Euronext corn futures were mostly lower, but Nov posted a slight gain.
