Marketline Report for Wednesday, September 20th
Georgy ... "Harvest progress out yesterday afternoon. Corn coming in at 7 percent, expectation was 10 percent. Beans at 4 percent harvested. The expectation there was 5 so a little bit behind, but nothing that we can't catch up on here if we get some decent weather. Now, we had some rains come through the Midwest, but overall the crop right now is still a little bit late. A lot of chatter out there on what kind of yields are being found. So, some of this early harvest we've seen some better yields than expected, but it will be this later, the replant and the later planted stuff, where will that come in at."
