Wheat futures closed slightly higher, recovering a little from yesterday's hard sell off. Concerns remain about the winter wheat crop in the Southern Plains and the 10 day forecasts calls for only a chance of rain in the driest areas. Corn was higher today as yesterday's Crop Progress Report showed only 6% of the corn crop is planted nationwide vs the 5 year average of 14%. Selling from the country has turned quiet again.
Below is a link showing the test for falling numbers and the effect that falling numbers has on the end product. If you have any questions please feel free to call the Odessa or Reardan office.
Market hours: AM 9:00-11:10, PM 3:00-4:30 No PM market on Fridays No PM Hard Wheat Markets

OMAHA (DTN) -- Farmers are getting frustrated. Not only are they unable to empty their grain bins due to delayed railcar placements, but they are also concerned that rail delays will limit their ability to get fertilizer for spring field work.
Northern and western areas got some rain Wednesday, and Thursday will see more of the same. Areas of the Southern Plains will also see some moisture. The eastern Midwest will be mostly dry. » More DTN Weather Commentary
