DTN Midday Grain Comments 09/27 10:57 Corn, Soybean Futures Higher at Midday; Wheat Lower Corn futures are 5 to 6 cents higher at midday Tuesday; soybean futures are 9 to 11 cents higher; wheat futures are 17 to 22 cents lower. David M. Fiala DTN Contributing Analyst MARKET SUMMARY: Corn futures are 5 to 6 cents higher at midday Tuesday; soybean futures are 9 to 11 cents higher; wheat futures are 17 to 22 cents lower. The U.S. stock market is flat with the DOW up 45 points. The U.S. Dollar Index is 15 points lower. Interest rate products are weaker. Energies are firmer with crude up 2.40. Livestock trade is weaker with hogs the downside leader. Precious metals are firmer with gold $8.00 higher. CORN: Corn futures are 5 to 6 cents higher at midday with trade working back from Monday's weakness with a more risk-on appetite, while harvest pressure and dollar strength will likely continue to limit upside as trade fades from the highs of the session. Short-term forecasts have the center of the belt drier with warmer-than-normal temps over the next couple of weeks. Crop progress showed 12% harvested versus 14% on average; maturity at 58% lags the average at 61%; good to excellent condition at 52% and 21% poor to very poor, unchanged on the week. The export wire will need to show more life soon with nothing to start the week. Ethanol margins will likely chop along with softer driving demand and corn values keeping pressure on for now with natural gas fading a little to add support. Basis will be watched to see how quickly we go to harvest footing everywhere and how aggressively the west will bid for corn in the deficit areas into early harvest with some areas starting to show more strength. On the December chart, trade is just below the 20-day moving average at $6.78 with the lower Bollinger Band at $6.58 as support. SOYBEANS: Soybean futures are 9 to 11 cents higher at midday with trade still working in the lower end of the range. Better outside markets are adding support Tuesday morning with harvest pressure and demand concerns likely to keep upside limited near term. Meal is $1.50 to $2.50 lower, and oil is 60 to 70 points higher. South America has early planting underway with late demand picking up ahead of the U.S. export window with the stronger dollar potentially pushing that further out. Brazil is in better shape than Argentina early, although Argentina has aggressively moved last year's soybeans in recent days. Basis will continue to shift toward harvest footing with trade watching to see how quickly export shipments pick up into the end of the month with some further near-term basis pressure expected into October. The daily wire has been quiet recently. Weekly crop progress showed 63% dropping leaves versus 65% on average; 8% harvested versus 13% on average; conditions unchanged at 55% good to excellent and 15% poor to very poor. On the November soybean chart, trade has the 20-day moving average at $14.34, which we closed below Friday at resistance, with the lower Bollinger band at $13.73 as support. WHEAT: Wheat futures are 17 to 22 cents higher at midday with the softer dollar. Attacks on Odessa are bringing back buying in low volume with little confirmed damage at this point. But it continues to add to the murky political situation going forward. Spring wheat harvest is effectively wrapped up on the weekly report at 96%. Winter wheat planting is expanding with needed rains in some of the growing areas with 31% planted versus 30% on average; 9% emerged versus 6% on average. MATIF wheat remains near the upper end of the range with some light buying Tuesday morning. The KC December chart has support at the 20-day moving average of $9.24, and the Upper Bollinger band at $9.84 as resistance.

Cash Market Moves 09/26 11:05 Low Mississippi River Levels Could Spell Trouble for Harvest Water levels in the Lower Mississippi River have been falling for months and relief may not be in sight. Mary Kennedy DTN Basis Analyst Water levels on the Lower Mississippi River (LMR) are dangerously low in some areas and may slow or even stop barge traffic just as corn and soybean harvest starts. Most of the fall export business is for soybeans at the U.S. Gulf and the persisting low water can be problematic for shippers who need to move the new-crop harvest down river. The USDA noted in their weekly Grain Transportation Report for the week ended Sept. 17, barged grain movements totaled 209,600 tons. This was 16% more than the previous week, and 130 grain barges moved down river, which was 25 fewer barges than the prior week. Some of the slowdown can be attributed to a late start to the southern harvest and slow movement down the LMR. Demand at the Gulf has been bid triple digits for spot top quality soybeans barges all month, with guaranteed arrival dates at the Gulf. As of Sept. 23, the barge market was still inverted with the balance of Sept. bid at +170X. The first-half October was bid +145X and the last half was bid 134X. And, given the reduced barge drafts and the surging barge freight values as harvest picks up, those basis values are strong for this time of year. A normal draft -- the distance between the waterline and the deepest point of the boat -- for a barge when river conditions are good is about 12 feet at 1,500 tons. On the Illinois, barges are regularly loaded to about a 9-foot draft at 900 tons. Each foot of draft that is reduced means a barge's cargo is cut by 200 tons and will cost shippers money as they are paying the same amount of freight to ship less. In addition, that will create the need for more barges to pick up the slack. American Commercial Barge Lines reported Sept. 23 that draft reductions have been implemented from Cairo, Illinois, to Greenville, Mississippi, at 10'6" max and Greenville to the Gulf at 11'0" max. Northbound drafts have been reduced to 9'6". "Hearing docks may see further loading draft restrictions locally, some reportedly at 7' max. Tow size has been cut back resulting in a 12% to 15% reduction in tow size." According to ACBL, groundings have been driving intermittent closures of 12 to 36 hours over the past two weeks. "U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is engaging additional buoy boats to improve navigational aids as well as two dredges. Expect these issues to continue well into October based on forecasted precipitation. Industry is holding off U.S. Coast Guard request for further draft and tow-size restrictions." "Overall, the forecast leans dry for the entire area east of the Rockies until we get to December," said DTN Ag Meteorologist John Baranick. "Of course, we'll get some events in that time frame where some heavier rains will occur, but the prospect for widespread heavy rain across the basin that would raise river levels is rather low and probably depends on whether or not a tropical storm or hurricane moves through any of the basins." So far, the U.S. has ducked those tropical systems, but Baranick said he's keeping a close eye on the tropics. "Tropical systems bring lots of heavy rain in a short period of time and if they penetrate deep enough into the country, can raise rivers quickly. Hurricane Ian is going to stay over the Southeast and MidAtlantic later this week and will have no impact on the major river systems. But we're still in peak hurricane season for another few weeks and a direct hit could change the landscape." Baranick added, "During the wintertime, if we do end up with better precipitation, it takes quite a while to get it into the main rivers like the Ohio, Missouri, and Mississippi. And by that time, soils in northern areas are freezing up and locking away any moisture they have, storing it on top in the snowpack or ground ice. It may take until next spring's melt to get the rivers back up again in any significant way." Remember the recent talk about piping water from the Mississippi River to the drought-stricken West? The Bureau of Reclamation did a thorough study of the idea of pumping Mississippi River water to Arizona in 2012, concluding that the project would cost $14 billion (in 2012 dollars) and take 30 years to complete. Besides the cost, counting on the Mississippi River to help out in years like right now would be impossible given we currently don't have enough water in some parts of the river to keep our fall harvest bushels safely moving downriver.
