Kansas Corn, Milo, HRW-Wheat, and Soybean Basis Charts: Scott City, Hutchinson and Topeka, Kansas (by Taylor and Llewelyn)

Following are a sample of the latest Grain Basis Charts made available on the KSU AgManager.info website (http://www.agmanager.info).  These charts represent 2010-2014 basis levels through mid-July 2014 in Scott City (western), Hutchinson (central), and Topeka (eastern), Kansas.   Scott City is a primary market in west central Kansas, near cattle feeding operations and not too distant from ethanol plants in Campus and Garden City, Kansas.  Hutchinso is a key grain handling and transportation hub in central Kansas, especially for wheat, grain sorghum, and soybean markets.  Topeka in east central Kansas is an important central rail transportation hub for grain, and a regional receiving location for crop production in northeast and east central Kansas.

Note some of the differences in the level of grain basis across these areas of the state of Kansas, especially for corn (stronger in Scott City than in Hutchinson and Topeka), grain sorghum (a little stronger in Hutchinson), wheat (weaker in Scott City than in Hutchinson and Topeka), and soybeans (weaker in Scott City than in Hutchinson or Topeka).

The KSU grain basis charts utility has the ability to generate grain basis information for a large number of locations in Kansas as well as the surrounding states of Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle region.
