The monthly USDA Crop Production and WASDE reports, slated for release Thursday morning, are already getting a lot of attention in the markets, among both traders and farmers.
"I think the report will bring us bear (soybeans) and bull (corn) news," says Agriculture.com Marketing Talk senior contributor giolucas. "I think things are shifting the corn damage. Who knows? I am not going to trade this report but will wait afterwards."
