Kansas Corn, Milo, HRW-Wheat, and Soybean Basis Charts: Garden City (SW), Salina (C) and Columbus (SE), 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-August 2014 in Garden City (southwest), Salina (central), and Columbus (southeastern), Kansas.   Garden City is a primary market in southwest Kansas, near cattle feeding operations and not too distant from ethanol plants in the region.  Salina is a key grain handling and transportation hub in central Kansas, especially for corn, wheat, grain sorghum, and soybean markets.  Columbus in the southeast corner Kansas is located near the livestock feed markets in Arkansas for grain, and a regional grain market center in southeast Kansas.

Note some of the differences in the level and trends in grain basis across these areas of the state of Kansas.  For corn basis has been “level to uptrending” in recent weeks in Garden City and Columbus, but “downtrending” in Salina.  Basis for grain sorghum has been “level-to-uptrending” in Salina and Columbus in recent weeks, but trending “sideways” in Garden City.  Wheat basis has been “weakening” in recent weeks in Garden City, and especially in Salina, but less so in Columbus. The basis for soybeans has spiked sharply higher in all three Kansas locations in recent weeks, likely reflecting a temporarily tight “old crop” supply condition prior to the coming new crop harvest in September-October 2014.

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.
