World grain and oilseed markets review of 25.10.2021


On Monday, corn on exchanges in the United States was neutral, but in Europe there was bearish pressure. As a result, the December corn futures did not change their prices at CBOT in Chicago at the end of daily trading, while the November futures on Euronext in Paris fell by 1.75 euros per ton or by 0.70%.

Weekly harvest progress data released in the NASS Crop Progress report showed that as of Oct. 24, U.S. farmers had harvested 66% of the corn crop, in line with previous trade expectations. The current rate of harvest in the United States is ahead of the average annual rate by almost a week. On average, over the past 5 years, as of this date, the corn crop in the country was harvested from 53% of the fields. Rains are forecasted in the eastern corn belt areas in the coming days, which could slow down the country’s harvesting process.

Let me remind you that in Ukraine as of the end of last week, 32.2% of the corn crop or 11.155 million tons were harvested.

It is also worth remembering that there is some concern among analysts about the quality of corn in northern China due to heavy rains. Recently, central Brazil has also had strong winds, rains and hail, which could have a negative impact on future harvests.

The USDA in its report Export Inspections reported that during the week that ended October 21, 545,127 thousand tons of American corn were shipped for export.

Total accumulated U.S. corn exports since the beginning of 2021/22 MY reached 4.713 million tons (185.5 million bushels), still 57 million bushels behind last season’s corresponding pace, when 6.17 million tons were exported.

As already reported, according to the State Customs Service of Ukraine, as of October 25, 385 thousand tons of Ukrainian corn were exported since the beginning of the month, and since July 1 of this year, this figure has increased to 1.815 million tons. The volumes of current corn exports are ahead of last year’s corresponding figures by 278 thousand tons.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture in its weekly crop Progress report reported that as of October 24, the soybean crop was harvested from 73% of the acreage.

Let me remind you that on the eve of the USDA report, traders expected that the NASS would show the level of soybean harvesting in the US in the range from 75% to 76% of the cultivated area.

Current soybean sowing conditions in Brazil remain favorable so far, making the 2022 harvest for the record. According to AgRural, as of October 21, Brazilian farmers sowed soybeans on 38% of the projected acreage for this crop against 22% a week earlier and 23% on the same date last year.
