Wheat's Resiliant to a Point 04/24/2013 @ 7:26pm After a while, even wheat succumbs to hard freezes. And, been there, done that with frost. Cut straw fit for 60 bushel wheat and ended up with only 10 bushels per acre. Until the big money managers start moving back to long positions in wheat, it doesn't really matter whether the plains has a wheat crop or not--perception will rule. And that perception will always be that we're over priced because of currency exchange rates or because a traditional importer snubbed US wheat. Just hope that those of us affected by the continual freezes have the right level of revenue insurance this year!
