Wheat Price Outlook

Prices for wheat rebounded over the last month on planting woes as poor weather delayed operations. On 7 June, wheat traded at USD 535 cents per bushel, which was 14.2% higher than on the same day in the previous month. The price was down 0.3% on a year-to-date basis and was 0.6% lower than on the same day last year. Mid-May’s surge was driven largely by recent floods in the Midwest which hit planting operations. The USDA reported that 22% of spring wheat was planted in early May compared to the five-year average of 49%. Nevertheless, by 26 May sowing stood at 84%, down from last year’s 89%, and prices retreated in early June. Moreover, winter wheat quality was up notably from last year which likely supported prices.
