Can Wheat Prices Go Higher Early in the New Year? Kim Anderson Says MaybeFri, 07 Dec 2018 04:48:54
Oklahoma State University's Dr. Kim Anderson sees light at the end of the tunnel for wheat producers when it comes to wheat prices in the new calendar year- and tells Lyndall Stout with SUNUP this weekend that he thinks wheat prices have a chance of going higher after we turn the calendar over to 2019 for several reasons. Anderson believes our exports will pick up early in the new calendar year, Russian exports will start ramping down as they run out of wheat to export, drought in Australia is taking a toll on their expected wheat production and it appears we will be using more wheat than we are producing again this year- domestically and internationally. For producers who are able to grow a higher than average protein crop in 2019, those factors may help deliver higher wheat prices for what may well be a commodity in short supply and high demand.
