OSU's Kim Anderson Calls Potential Freeze Damage to Southern Plains Wheat a Non Event in the Markets

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 17:11:57 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Calls Potential Freeze Damage to Southern Plains Wheat a Non Event in the Markets Sorry wheat farmers- this past weekend's freeze and potentially more cold weather that could hurt the southern plains hard red winter wheat crop has not mattered when it comes to wheat prices. OSU Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson says massive global supplies of wheat trump any harm that temps below thirty two degrees may have done- at least to this point.

Anderson tells SUNUP Hostess Lyndall Stout that "actually it has been a non event on the market, if you look at the Kansas City May contract prices, they are a dime lower than they were before the freeze. It is such a small area as you look at the potential world crop- any damage is essentially insignificant."

Anderson talks about where we are on the size he expects for the current year world crop- and the likely increase in global stocks which is keeping a lid on US and world wheat prices. He says if you are looking for a sizable rally in wheat prices that would get us back to a cost of production breakeven- that would probably take a market shock in the form of a drop of seven to eight percent in the global wheat production this year to spark a rally.
