We’re going to be able to sell all our crop – and we’ve increased production 3 fold this year and the main driver behind that is price. The reason why prices have gone up is increased demand for corn.
But wheat hit a record?
Yes, they had some harvest issues that drove prices higher. And the big corn acreage has brought corn prices down, but I think it’s oversold and price will come back.
Why do you think that?
They’re having some production issues in parts of the corn belt. (Roger is in North Dakota.) It’s dry and the next 30 days will determine how good the crop is. If it gets warm and dry they will have some problems.
Are you seeing that reflected on the commodities floor, Eric?
Not yet, Eric replies.
If there’s one thing you wish you could plant more of – what would it be?
Corn. But it’s tough until we have a more reliable history with this crop. North Dakota is up about 73% this year and expected to be up another 50% next year.
Dylan asks Eric, what’s the trade?
