USDA Report - June 30

Jun 30, 2023

Taylor Bensenberg is a Grain Originator at River Valley Cooperative and gives insight into the USDA report. The USDA released its report on June 30th. The report shows the stocks and acres with no update to the balance sheets, no world numbers, and no yield changes.

The June 1st stocks show that corn is within the trade estimate at 4.106 billion bushels. Then beans are below the trade estimate at 796 million bushels. With the June 1st acre report the USDA states a similar story with corn acres within the trade estimate at 94.096 million acres and beans well below the trade estimate at 83.505 million acres.
This shows a very bullish bean market with a bearish corn market. Corn has dropped around 30-35 cents while beans rose 70-75 cents. In the future, we will see some changes in the supply and demand market of these grains come the July report.

The grain market has been very volatile over the past few weeks. Right now, we are seeing a textbook weather market meaning the market is heavily dependent on what the weather conditions are. The markets tend to overreact to the June weather, and they tend to mellow out a bit in July.

For the July 4th weekend we will see the markets open normal hours on Monday closing at 1:30 p.m. and reopening on Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. July 5th.

Eastern Iowa has received 2 to 4 inches of rain over the last week. Between rain showers, growers and retailers have found time to near the end of soybean post-spraying and top dress urea. Corn is growing fast with plenty of heat and moisture. Diseases have started to show up as well and we have already seen gray leaf spot, rust, and tar spot. Y-drop applications have started and should continue in the next few weeks. Soybeans that haven’t been post-sprayed have weeds that are getting some size. Make sure to use herbicide rates that are high enough to prevent having to respond later.

Over the last two weeks, our run of moisture has continued in Eastern Iowa. Corn postemergence applications are nearing the end as we approach the start of postemergence soybean applications. Corn topdress urea applications are in full force as the early planted corn approaches V8-V9. There have been quite a few fields of corn showing sulfur deficiency, but overall, our corn crop should be classified as good/excellent. There have been pockets here and there of hail damage where growers did need to replant. Looking at the extended forecast, we should expect some excellent growing conditions for our corn and soybeans in the coming weeks.
