KSU “Quick Analysis” Calculations of USDA November 9th Reports – Focusing on U.S. Corn and Soybean Yields and Production, and World Crop Supply-Demand Balances

A KSU “quick analysis” worksheet of the key grain marketing-related information found in the November 9, 2016 USDA Crop Production (here) and 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/grain-marketing


The spreadsheet contains a comparison of USDA November 2016 forecasts with a) pre-report trade estimates, b) last month’s October 2016 WASDE projections, and c) projections for previous marketing years.  Key information is contained on the following:

A. U.S. crop production forecasts for 2016 corn, soybean and grain sorghum.

B. U.S. ending stocks projections for the “new crop” 2016/17 marketing year for major crops.

C. World ending stocks projections for the “new crop” 2016/17 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.
