Unfavourable weather pushes up quotes of the American wheat
After a slight respite yesterday, on Tuesday, the market for U.S. wheat began to grow. Now the players ' attention focused on spring wheat.
first, investors drew attention to the lagging pace of the sowing campaign from last year. Now planted 89 % of the projected area, whereas last year the figure was 92 %. Germination of crops is 60 %, which is also behind last year's 63 %.
secondly, there is a likelihood that the wheat harvest in the Midwest and the South American Plains may suffer as a result of cold and wet weather.
in addition, the wheat market has been supported by the markets of soybeans and corn, which continue to grow under the influence of a significant reduction of forecasts on the harvest of these crops in Latin America.
July quotes U.S. wheat rose:
- in Chicago by 2.57 $/ton to 177,01 $/tones of soft wheat SRW,
- in Kansas city 1.56 $/tonne to 168,19 $/tone for hard wheat HRW,
