AM I mistaken or was the prospective planting repo

It probably is not a big deal, but I am just curious why this report was out on the web and in my brokers hands at 9:00 this morning? This was at least a couple hours before it was scheduled. I just hope when the big reports come out, that they are not pre-released to some who are close to the USDA. We all should be marketing on an even floor.

I'm in the press room at the Outlook conference. Glauber's speech and slides were handed out yesterday shortly after 8 a.m. EST with instructions not to use until he began speaking at about 8:20 a.m. EST. The entire press corps got the handouts at the same time and appeared to honor that request to post nothing until 8:20. I chose not to write about plantings first, but others probably did. All of this is interesting stuff that's important for farmers to know. I'm not sure I'd be trading on these estimates, though. They're extremely early and not based on farmer surveys.
