Marketline Report for Tuesday, July 20th
McGATHEY … “Wheat was leading the way a little bit higher. The North American stocks are tightening, and that’s because of the Pacific Northwest and into Canada. The canola markets were limit up. They’re going to be reducing that crop size for wheat and canola. Those kinds of things are really affecting the market and I think that crop reduction, due to the extended 100-plus degree temperatures could really affect the rest of the crops in the U.S. We’re expecting that heat dome to move almost into the Midwest area. Those kind of temperatures really can be devastating to some of the crops that we have. So, we’re going to watch that closely.
