After the Shutdown, a Deluge of Major USDA Reports

After the Shutdown, a Deluge of Major USDA Reports | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Successfull Farming, 28/01/2019 - The USDA will begin today to clear out a month’s worth of backlogged data, including major reports that could jolt commodity markets and color farmers’ decisions on crops to plant this spring.

Chief Economist Robert Johansson said there will be one exception — the globe-spanning WASDE Report that serves as a monthly crop report for the world.

“We will quickly and smoothly get back to full speed,” said Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue on social media.

USDA Decreases World Wheat Production on Dry Conditions

USDA Decreases World Wheat Production on Dry Conditions | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

By Stephanie Bryant-Erdmann (USW Market Analyst), 12/07/2018.

USDA raised 2018/19 U.S. wheat production to 51.2 million metric tons (MMT), up 8 percent from 2017/18, if realized. While wheat production is expected to increase in the United States, it is expected to fall globally in 2018/19. USDA forecast 2018/19 total world wheat production at 736 MMT, down 3 percent from the year prior, if realized. The largest decrease is expected in Russia, which is forecast to produce 67.0 MMT, down 18.0 MMT from 2017/18 due to poor growing conditions. Wheat production is also expected to fall in the European Union (EU) and Australia due to dry conditions.

While 2018/19 world wheat production is expected to fall for the first time in 5 years, world wheat consumption is expected to grow 5.23 MMT from the previous year to 749 MMT. If realized, world wheat consumption will outpace world wheat production by 12.6 MMT in 2018/19. With consumption outpacing production, world wheat ending stocks are expected to fall to 261 MMT, down 5 percent from 2017/18. The reduction in ending stocks puts the 2018/19 global stocks-to-use ratio (excluding China) just under 20 percent, which is the lowest level since 2007/08.

La sécheresse dans le monde fait s'envoler le prix du blé août 2018

La sécheresse dans le monde fait s'envoler le prix du blé août 2018 | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

Par AFP le 08/08/2018

Sur le marché à terme européen des matières premières Euronext, la tonne de blé a dépassé les 218 euros en cours de séance mardi, un niveau jamais atteint depuis le printemps 2013. Le 6 août, à Chicago, le cours avait bondi de 3,3 %, emportant le maïs au passage. Dans l'attente d'un rapport mensuel crucial vendredi du ministère américain de l'agriculture (USDA) sur l'offre et la demande de produits agricoles dans le monde, « le marché change vraiment de dimension », estime Sébastien Poncelet, spécialiste des blés et grains chez Agritel à Paris. Selon cet analyste, « le plafond de verre des cours du blé, en vigueur depuis cinq ans autour du seuil de 200-210 euros la tonne, a explosé la semaine dernière : on retrouve désormais l'univers des années tendues 2007, 2010 et 2012 ».

Trois autres nouveaux points d'inquiétude focalisent l'attention des opérateurs : la récolte en Australie elle aussi menacée par la sécheresse, la moisson de blé au Canada à partir de septembre, et celle de maïs aux Etats-Unis et en Europe.
