Wheat futures are trading sharply lower in the nearby contracts ahead of FND. CHI is the weakest, down 11 1/4 cents for March 17. Both KC and MPLS are 9 1/4 lower. During the week of Feb 23, 537,877 MT of wheat was reported for export inspections. That is down just 6.12% wk/wk, but 38.8% above this time last year. Compared to the USDA estimate for yearly exports, wheat total commits are at 88%, behind the previous 5 years’ average of 90%. USDA did just hike the full year forecast in February, requiring the stronger sales pace to continue. 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.

That would be an 8 year low. This is partly a function of low overall prices, but also of prevented planting (PP) expectations. USDA must be using a larger number than the very low PP from 2016. 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%.
