Karl Setzer Grain Commentary

Closing Comments; September 21st, 2018

There are some signs of the U.S. and Canada are coming to a possible agreement. One of the topics being discussed, is setting a cap of $1.2 trillion dollars in annual auto trades to Canada. However, Canada is down playing such discussions. The dairy market access continues to be debated between the both countries. Nothing concrete has surfaced from their discussions yet this week.

Severe storms went thru Northwest Iowa & Southwest Minnesota Thursday evening causing damage to grain bins, buildings & crops. Straight line winds & tornadoes are to be blamed for the damage. Extensive amounts of rain have fallen this week throughout the Western Corn Belt, causing harvest delays & bringing cooler weather.

December corn closed up 4 cents at $3.57 . November beans closed down 3 cents at $8.47 . December Chicago Wheat closed down 2 cents at $5.21 .
