Corn and Soybeans Soften Into Week's End

Corn and Soybeans Soften Into Week's End

Corn and soybean futures showed little net price movement early in the week, but by week's end were pressured as the U.S. dollar index moved above par for the first time since April 2003. Surprisingly, wheat traders brushed aside dollar strength and firmed on short-covering. Traders quickly absorbed USDA's March Supply & Demand Report as they begin to prepare for USDA's March 31 Prospective Plantings and Quarterly Grain Stocks Reports. We take a detailed look at the dollar and its impact on exports, as well as break down the March S&D Report -- and much more -- in this week's Pro Farmer newsletter.
