It has stayed stubbornly high for quite a long time now...as we move thru July, this corn crop will likely be "made" as July is the key month for corn pollination. If for some reason it would get dry in August, the key month for beans, the SX/CZ ration could actually move higher! But with all things being equal - assuming the weather continues - you would think the ratio would have to come down. Just haven't seen it yet, including this week, when it has moved higher yet again.

An higher the ratio goes...almost daily. The corn crop is made, and the market has doubts about the 415 million bu carryover numbers for soybean stocks next year.
