Attention Corn & Soybean Producers:

Feel free to inquire on learning about the best way to hedge. In my opinion my strategy is the best I have seen since I became a member in 1976 trading corn and soybeans for my own account.


Are you tired of listening to the same BULL ****, and services that do not have a plan if the market goes down instead? Hedge means to take risk off the table, and my service has all producers 100% hedged and they do have most of the upside unhedged (if we can rally for whatever reason). Hedge with a Pro and option expert who has been trading grains for 40 years.

Crop Comments

 

Corn: Corn for grain production in the United States is estimated at a record 14.2 billion bushels, down 1 percent from the November forecast but up 3 percent from the revised 2013 estimate. The average yield in the United States is estimated at a record high 171.0 bushels per acre. This is down 2.4 bushels from the November forecast but 12.9 bushels above the revised 2013 average yield of 158.1 bushels per acre.
Estimated yields in 2014 are up from the previous year across most of the major corn producing States. Favorable growing conditions across much of the nation helped corn growers achieve a record crop. Record yields are estimated in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia.


Corn planted area, at 90.6 million acres, is down 5 percent from 2013. Area harvested for grain is estimated at
83.1 million acres, up slightly from the November forecast, but down 5 percent from the revised 2013 estimate.Crop Production 2014 Summary (January 2015) 87
USDA, National Agricultural Statistics Service

The 2014 corn objective yield data indicate the highest number of ears per acre on record for the combined 10 objective yield States (Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin). Record high ear counts were recorded in Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Corn silage production is estimated at 128 million tons for 2014, up 8 percent from 2013 and represents the highest production on record for the United States. The United States silage yield is estimated at 20.1 tons per acre, up 1.3 tons from 2013. Area harvested for silage is estimated at 6.37 million acres, up 1 percent from a year ago.


The start of this year’s corn planting was delayed due to late season winter storms and lingering cold weather across most of the Midwest. More favorable weather conditions returned to the major corn producing areas by the end of April, allowing producers to plant 19 percent of the corn crop by April 27, fourteen percentage points ahead of 2013. Weather conditions improved significantly during the week ending May 11, when 59 percent of the corn was in the ground, 33 percentage points ahead of 2013. As May drew to a close, dry, warm conditions across the corn-producing regions aided planting progress and crop development. By the end of May, 60 percent of the Nation’s corn crop had emerged, 11 percentage points ahead of 2013, but 4 percentage points behind the 5-year average.

By the start of June, above-average temperatures throughout the Corn Belt aided crop development but untimely rains in some areas prevented post-planting fieldwork. However, the moisture received at the beginning of the month allowed for 97 percent of the crop to be emerged by June 15, six percentage points ahead of 2013. Seventy-four percent of the corn crop was reported in good to excellent condition by June 22, nine percentage points better than the same time in 2013.


July began with below-normal temperatures in the Corn Belt, which helped the crop to rapidly progress in development. by July 13, thirty-four percent of this year’s corn crop was at or beyond the silking stage, with 76 percent of the crop reported in good to excellent condition. By July 27, seventeen percent of the corn crop was at or beyond the dough stage, 9 percentage points ahead of 2013.

Most areas of the Corn Belt received beneficial rainfall during August. By August 10, fifty-four percent of the crop was at or beyond the dough stage, 24 percentage points ahead of 2013 and 8 percentage points ahead of the 5-year average. By August 17, denting progress remained behind the respective State 5-year averages in 14 of the 18 estimating States. Warmer weather returned to the Great Plains by mid-August helping to aid corn development. August 31 corn conditions were the highest they had been this late in the season since 2004.

By September 14, twenty-seven percent of the corn crop was mature, 7 percentage points ahead of 2013 but 12 percentage points behind the 5-year average. By September 21, corn harvest progress was behind the State 5-year averages in all estimating States except Texas. The corn crop ended the month with 60 percent of the crop mature, equal to the same time in 2013 but 10 percentage points behind the 5-year average.

Above-average rainfall slowed fieldwork in the Corn Belt during the week ending October 5. Nationwide, producers had harvested 17 percent of the corn by October 5, fifteen percentage points behind the 5-year average. By October 26, dry conditions across the Corn Belt aided fall fieldwork; however, harvest progress remained behind the 5-year average pace in all estimating States except Tennessee. Nationally, 65 percent of the corn was harvested by November 2, six percentage points behind 2013 and 8 percentage points behind the 5-year average. Harvest was virtually complete by November 23, when 94 percent of the corn crop had been harvested, 2 percent ahead of the 5-year average
