Risky to Store Unpriced Grain
Wed, 17 Sep 2014

Storing unpriced grain is a risky strategy, says University of Minnesota Extension grain marketing economist Ed Usset. For corn, soybeans and wheat, Usset favors selling the carry in the market now, because of what he sees is significant risk that prices may not be higher several months from now. In an average year, Usset says odds of a cash corn price increase after harvest are 75 percent, but this year, the odds are only 35 percent. In years when deferred prices were below October prices,  the carryover of corn, beans and wheat reached more than two weeks usage from the previous year. 
Industrial Beet Project Delayed
Wed, 17 Sep 2014

North Dakota’s industrial beet project has been delayed due to several factors, including the delay of the EPA’s analysis of industrial beet feedstock for advanced biofuels. Without EPA approval, biofuel produced from industrial beets will not count toward the federal mandate. The ongoing development of potential partners in the industrial chemical market, and development of grower interest and feedstock supply are other factors. Initially, the group expected to build the first facility to produce ethanol and/or other sugar feedstock for other industrial purposes in early 2015. Updated timelines will depend on the timing of resolving the current challenges.
