KSU “Quick Analysis” Calculations of USDA September Reports – Focusing on U.S. Yields, World Wheat, Coarse Grains and Soybeans

A KSU “quick analysis” worksheet of the key grain marketing-related information found in the September 12th USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report (here) can be found on the Kansas State University AgManager.info website (http://www.agmanager.info/).

The specific web address for this downloadable MS Excel Spreadsheet is found here:  http://www.agmanager.info/marketing/outlook/newletters/default.asp


The spreadsheet contains a comparison of USDA September forecasts with a) prereport trade estimates, b) last month’s August 2013 WASDE projections, and c) projections for a year ago.  Key information is contained on the following:

A. U.S. crop production forecasts for 2013 corn, soybean and grain sorghum.

B. U.S. ending stocks projections for the “new crop” 2013/14 marketing year for major crops.

C. World ending stocks projections for the “new crop” 2013/14 marketing year for major crops

The worksheet also contains a more extensive analysis of the September WASDE report results in regards to World wheat, coarse grain, corn and soybean supply-demand results, focusing on country-by-country (or region-by-region in many cases) projections of production, imports, exports, domestic feed use, and ending stocks.
