U.S. Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop Down 32% from Last Year

U.S. Hard Red Winter Wheat Crop Down 32% from Last Year

5/10/2017 10:56:00 AM/Categories: General News, Today's Top 5, Livestock, Grains

WASHINGTON, D.C. (DTN) -- USDA came in at analysts projections in one of the first looks at the 2017-18 new crop ending stocks for corn, but were on the low end of pre-report estimates for new crop soybean ending stocks.

USDA released the monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates at noon as well as new crop wheat production.


CORN

USDA set 2017-18 (new crop) corn ending stocks were pegged at 2.11 billion bushels, right at the pre-report average. USDA maintained production for the newly planted crop at 14.065 billion bushels, which would be 1.08 billion bushels below the 2016-17 crop.

The 2016-17 (old crop) ending stocks were pegged at 2.295 billion bushels for corn.

SOYBEANS

The 2017-18 soybean ending stocks came in at 480 million bushels, which was 88 million bushels below the pre-report analyst average.

USDA projected the 2017-18 soybean production at 4.255 billion bushels, down from 4.307 billion bushels in the 2016-17 crop.

Old-crop soybean ending stocks pegged at 435 million bushels, which is 10 million bushels lower than the April report.

WHEAT

2017-18 winter wheat production is pegged at 1.25 billion bushels, down 25% from last year. As of May 1, the yield forecast was 48.8 bushels per acre, down 6.5 bushels from last year's record yield. These numbers, however, also likely do not factor in the impact of April's winter storm on the winter crop.

Hard red winter wheat production was pegged at 737 million bushels, down 32% from a year ago. The soft red winter wheat crop was forecast at 297 million bushels, down 14% from last year. All white wheat production was projected at 212 million bushels.

A large chunk of the decline in winter wheat production came from Kansas, where the average yield is pegged at 42 bushels per acre, down from 57 bushels last year. Production for the 2017-18 crop in Kansas is projected at 289.8 million bushels, down 38% from the 2016-17 crop.

Winter Wheat Seedings Estimate Lowest in Over a Century

1/14/2018 6:42:00 PM
The report Friday showed 32.61 million acres planted. That was in fact down from last year, but more than 300,000 acres larger than the average trade guess and above all published trade guesses. This was the first time since 2012 for the USDA figure to be larger than the average trade estimate. It was only the second time since 2000, with the other being 2011. Futures had big fall rallies in both 2011 and 2012, which you might expect would result in a production response. This fall we were grinding lower. So what happened, and are there any implications? >> Read More
