Special Grain Report

Special Report
This morning the USDA issued their September Supply and Demand estimates for principle crops including corn, soybeans, and wheat. The following tables show a breakdown of the numbers:



The USDA left the old crop carryout unchanged leaving all adjustments in the new crop category. Production was up over 300 mbu from the August numbers on a yield increase of 4.3 bpa. These numbers are slightly higher than what many thought the USDA would throw at us for the September report. Fortunately, new crop demand categories increased in the Feed (+75), Ethanol (+50), and Export (+25) categories, resulting in a 14/15 carryout increase of nearly 200 mbu.

Market Reaction: Negative. Regardless of what the USDA was going to say today, many are convinced that the highest production estimates are yet to come. Harvest numbers will confirm the USDA’s thoughts. We would expect our negative trend to continue.



Old crop soybean carryout levels fell by 10 mbu with higher production expected in new crop. Yield numbers increased by 1.2 bpa resulting in production increases of nearly 100 mbu. Demand categories of Crush (+15) and Exports (+25) increased to partially offset the supply increases. The net result was an increase to the 14/15 carryout by 45 mbu.

Market Reaction: Negative. Similar to corn, the market is anticipating harvest results in the coming month that will confirm the size of the crop. Absent of any freezing weather in the next few weeks, the size of the bean crop looks to grow.


World Stocks:

14/15 World carryout continues to climb, which continues to drive the market into negative territory.  World Beans up 4.6, Corn up 2.1 (million Tonnes).
