Prevent plant does not work for soybeans as it does for corn. After land cost it is hard to shed enough expense to make it work. So planted acres of soybeans could be at USDAâ?™s estimate or higher. Grower that are in a position to take prevent planting need to know the rules, to get as much corn versus bean prevented plant, to get as much coverage as they paid for. From this point of view the next upward push in price could come from wheat stocks. The bullishness of exports seems to be declining barring a normal freeze in Brazil. HRWW is sick. The market is expecting world supplies to cover our decline in production. Short corn stock could have feeders sucking up wheat. This may be push in prices this mess of weather is providing.
