Corn planting 2017 begins in Iowa

Rains help winter wheat, delay corn planting in Kansas

Rains help winter wheat, delay corn planting in Kansas

This year, the wet conditions in some areas of the upper Midwest, the forecast for a potentially wet spring, and the fact that the forecasts have leaned wetter for the last couple of weeks have all instilled in traders the idea that US corn planting could be slow - which it has been to start. North Dakota spring wheat was 6% planted versus 13% a year ago and the 11% average. Farmers only had three nice days for fieldwork last week. While the proportion of the crop in good or excellent condition is 3 points below last year, it is seven points better than the five year average. Additionally, the corn crop plant starts in April, with the amount of rainfall dictating how quickly corn goes in.

(KMAland) - Rain continues to slow corn planting for farmers across KMAland. At six percent planted, and using the March intentions, 7.2 million acres have been planted and 82.796 million corn acres remain unplanted as of April 16, 2017, Figure 3.

Any ability to characterize late or early planting at a national level creates complications due to geographic variation.

Vietnam is forecast to import 1.7 million tons of soybeans this year, a rebound of 6 percent after a fall in last year's overseas purchases following higher demand for animal feed production and from the food processing sector, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has said. Farmers were able to completely plant the corn crop by the third week in May that year - one of the fastest plantings on record - only to end up harvesting one of the worst corn crops in USA history due to historic drought and heat.

Similar to the market lows last fall which came ahead of a big US crop, the market may have already "priced-in" a big South American crop, Suderman said.

Any delays in corn planting always gets analysts immediately thinking of the upside potential for soybean acres, especially this year given the acreage tug-of-war ensuing between the United States' two key crops.

Mourinho points to Rashford as example for struggling Martial
This season has been the most regular one for me at the club and that is with Mourinho on the bench", he said . "He can help us". The same way I know the players so much better now, the players should know me also much better now.

Importantly, any reductions in corn acreage due to weather complications could pave the way for additional soybean acres due to their later planting window. The decline also followed a March 31 USDA report projecting a jump in US soybean plantings to record levels this year.

As the pace of planting slows, attention will shift to crop conditions during the growing season as the market tries to anticipate the crop size. On the other hand, "knee high by the fourth of July" could lead to another bumper crop and further test the price lows growers have experienced in recent years.

Topsoil moisture statewide rated zero percent very short, 1% short, 74% adequate and 25% surplus.
