Kim Anderson Says US Will See Wheat Prices Rise When Russia Runs Out of Wheat, on SUNUP!

Kim Anderson Says US Will See Wheat Prices Rise When Russia Runs Out of Wheat, on SUNUP! It has been yet another week of sideways trading in the wheat markets. The question on producers’ minds is - when will there be an increase in prices? According to Oklahoma State University Extension Grain Market Economist Dr. Kim Anderson, the best chance for to see an uptick in the markets for US HRW, will be when Russia runs out of wheat to export.

In an interview with SUNUP Host Lyndall Stout this week, Anderson explained that with Russia’s total crop production for the year coming in smaller than what it was last year and given the pace at which it is exporting - he believes the Russians will deplete their exportable wheat stocks that have flooded the marketplace sometime between January and February during the coming year. Once that happens, he predicts that the world’s wheat demand will shift from Russia to the US, thereby increasing domestic wheat prices.

Currently, the price of wheat is settled in at around $5/bu. With increased global demand focused on the US, Anderson calculates a potential price increase of as much as 75 to 80 cents a bushel. His advice to farmers with wheat in the bin and a financial position that can afford the 50-cent risk that exists in the market, to wait things out until the first couple months of 2019 before selling their grain in order to capture some of that demand premium he is predicting.
