A KSU “quick analysis” worksheet of the key grain marketing-related information found in the January 12th USDA Crop Production Annual Summary, World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) , Quarterly Grain Stocks, and Winter Wheat Seedings reports 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 January 12, 2015 U.S. and Foreign grain supply-demand forecasts for the “current crop” 2014/15 marketing year for corn, wheat, soybeans and grain sorghum, with comparisons to a) pre-report trade estimates, and b) last month’s (December 2014) USDA grain production and supply-demand.
Key information is contained on the following:
A. United States’, Brazil, Argentina and Total World crop production forecasts for 2014/2015 corn, grain sorghum, wheat and soybeans.
B. Updated U.S. & World ending stocks projections for the “new crop” 2014/15 marketing year for major crops (corn, sorghum, wheat, and soybeans).
C. Updated U.S. & World ending stocks projections for the “new crop” 2014/15 marketing year for major crops & crop categories (corn, coarse grains, wheat, and soybeans).
D. December 1, 2014 U.S. stocks of corn, wheat, soybeans and grain sorghum, and September-November 2014 usage of these same commodities.
E. U.S. Winter Wheat Seedings in fall 2014 for harvest in summer 2015.
The worksheet also contains a more extensive foreign country-by-country analysis of the January 12, 2015 WASDE report results in regards to World wheat, coarse grain, corn and soybean supply-demand, focusing on country-by-country (or region-by-region in many cases) projections of production, imports, exports, domestic feed use, total domestic use, ending stocks, and stocks-to-use.
