Crop Prices Ride Weather Teeter Totter

Last week we talked about a potential weather pattern change, one that would provide cooler and wetter weather than normal – a shift from the warm/dry pattern that we’d been in to start the month of June. That weather pattern change occurred in the past week, with temperatures cooling off to below normal across most of the Corn Belt last week, with that forecast to continue the next seven days. However, just as a weather pattern can change from hot/dry to cool/wet, it can also change back again! And that is exactly what is forecast in about another week.


Cool Weather, Cool Markets

Will 2017 go down as a very cool year? What impact will that have on final yields? There is still plenty of time to impact the market by the summer weather.
