Wheat Paces Market With Double Digit Gains

Wheat Paces Market With Double Digit Gains

Hot, dry weather on southern Plains raises more concerns for an already troubled crop. (Audio)

Wheat prices are starting the new week the same way they ended last week – with a rally. Temperatures hit 102 degrees Sunday in Wichita, KS, stressing a wheat crop already hurt by winterkill and long-term drought. Corn and soybeans faded overnight gains, however, with tensions in Ukraine and a holiday in England thinning out interest. Traders are gearing up for Friday’s USDA reports, which feature the agency’s first survey of winter wheat farmers and their fields.

Farm Futures Senior Editor Bryce Knorr talks about the markets with Mick Kjar, Valley News Live TV, Fargo.
