Corn Futures Market News and Commentary

Corn Pulls Back on Friday

Corn futures closed out the week with 4 to 10 ¼ cent losses in most contracts. May Futures expired at $7.94 ½. July was down 3 ½ cents on the week, with new crop December up 28 cents.

Much of the Western Corn Belt has less than half an inch expected, with the ECB seen at around an inch over the next week. USDA did note the lag in planting progress as a reason for the 177 bpa yield, below the weather adjusted trend yield from back in February.
