Corn Futures Market News and Commentary

Corn Holding with 2c Gains at Midday

Corn futures pressed higher at the day session open, but faded back to 2c gains for the midday print. A large Chinese purchase of Ukrainian corn at discounted prices didn’t seem to faze Monday’s buyers. 

AgRural reported Brazil’s corn planting at 73% for second crop, which is up from 59% last week and compares to 56% at the same time last year. First crop harvest reached 42% complete as of 2/22, which remains ahead of the 27% pace last year. 

Dr. Michael Cordonnier estimated the preliminary 24/25 corn yield between 179 and 180 bushels/acre, which would bring ~15.05 bbu off 92m planted acres. 

The weekly Export Inspections report had 1.242 MMT of corn shipped during the week that ended 2/22. That was up from 1.05 MMT last week and was nearly double shipments from the same week last year. USDA also added ~133k MT of corn shipments to past reports, which brough the season’s total export to 19.49 MMT. That is up from 14.39 MMT ahead of last year’s pace.
