Report shows little change in corn, soybeans

The Agriculture Department’s monthly crop report showed no change in the 2012 ending stocks forecast for corn and a slight decrease for soybeans compared to the prior month.

 
Identical to last month, corn ending stocks in the U.S. for the marketing year are projected to be tight at 647 million bushels, representing 21 days of supply. Globally, USDA pegged corn ending stocks 13.4 million metric tons lower than the prior year, primarily due to the effect of the protracted drought in the U.S. While USDA did lower the global ending stocks figure, the estimate of Chinese corn production was boosted by 8 million metric tons compared to last month; however, demand also increased so global stocks for corn are essentially unchanged.
 
Ending stocks for soybeans are projected to be 130 million bushels (about a 16-day supply), which Todd Davis, AFBF senior economist, described as “incredibly tight.”
 
USDA’s crop production reports and world grain supply/demand estimates are available online.
