Cash corn prices stay firm

03/13/2012 @ 1:43pm

Solid export demand continues to underpin cash-corn prices. Tightening supplies, reflective of limited farmer selling, are drawing down corn inventories and forcing processors and exporters to keep a bid beneath prices. Corn supplies stored at export terminals and elevators at Louisiana Gulf ports slumped 19% in the week ended Tuesday, according to data released by the USDA. On Monday, the agency reported a 17% rise in corn inspected for export last week. Exporters at the Gulf are paying 64-71c/bushel over May CBOT futures. (andrew.johnsonjr@dowjones.com)
