Seems there’s a bit of a panic in the trade. I’m sat on 1000t of group 1 wheat and have taken a call from a large buyer we deal with pretty much begging me to sell. They were very put out when I said I’m sitting on it till the new financial year in October and kind of suggested they won’t be helpful with regards to fert and seed orders. Then they were even further put out when I said I wouldn’t be buying any new seed and have kept half my fert back from this year to run into next as I’m only thinking of planting spring crops for harvest 23.
Can you wear shorts?

They said they'd not be helpful with seed and fert? Sod that. Get on the phone to a buying group. These merchants are not your friends no matter how many years you've sold to them.

you need a good (free) buying group - fert, seed and crop protection (late summer onward) all on https://www.farmdeals.ag/
 
Turn around Tuesday
last July the trade talked the new crop grain market down to 160
this May up to 350

post harvest any ones guess

weather will be the biggest over riding factor
peace in Ukraine could be a black swan event but it would need Russia or the Ukraine to capitulate

I think Russia/Ukraine supply restriction is already factored in to prices.
We are now into demand destruction territory on feed grains.
Sold a third of my feed grain harvest forward yesterday on the slight rebound at lunchtime. Needed to put a floor in it to cover high input costs. Falling grain prices at/after harvest would be catastrophic for my cashflow and profit. I can’t afford to risk that.
I can “afford” to gamble the rest though I’ve no idea where it will go.
As said I think it’s now a global weather issue rather than much to do with Ukraine. Russia will still be supplying its mates around the world anyway which takes the heat out of that aspect.
I’m not expecting a crash but there could well be a steady wilt to mid 200’s if there are no weather issues.
