OSU's Kim Anderson Says Tight Stocks are Driving Elevated Grain Prices

Thu, 12 May 2022 21:49:42 CDT

OSU's Kim Anderson Says Tight Stocks are Driving Elevated Grain Prices This week on SUNUP is Dr. Kim Anderson, Oklahoma State University Extension grain market economist. During this week’s edition, Anderson speaks on the grain markets and factors contributing to elevated prices.

“Prices are high because stocks are relatively tight,” Anderson said. “Let’s start with wheat. If you look at the five-year average, the world stocks-to-use ratio it is about 38%, and it is projected to be 35%.”

Not only is this a 3% drop for wheat, Anderson said, but when 28 billion bushels of wheat are produced per year, worldwide, 3% is a large quantity of wheat.

“If you look at the United States, our five-year stocks-to-use ratio is 50% and it is projected to be around 36%,” Anderson said. “You look at the major exporters- that’s the U.S., Canada, Australia, Argentina, Russia, and Ukraine.”

The Five-year average for the major exporters is 20%, Anderson said, and 18% is what is projected.

“If you look at the black sea area, their average is 11% and is projected to be 16%,” Anderson said, “So there is a lot of wheat tied up in Russia and Ukraine that hasn’t got out of the export market and will, sometime in the future, come out.”
