The Buzz: Farm Crop Size Questions

Increase in the USDA corn production estimate could spell end to the grain stocks report bounce.

USDA reports are coming fast and furious, with the agency’s latest due out Oct. 11. The monthly supply and demand report will provide more answers to a market with plenty of questions. The size of the corn crop is a major concern. If the crop is smaller, a run towards $9 isn’t out of the question. But an 11 billion bushel crop could mean the rally is over, according to Senior Editor Bryce Knorr.

He offers an in-depth look at what last week's report means and a look ahead to that big report, as well as other forecasts to help you better understand the risk management factors ahead.
