Farmer's Report

Dry Commodity Trends - January 21, 2022


  • Sugar price offers remain firm into the first half 2022, as the industry is well sold through September of 2022
  • Louisiana’s cane crop harvest is complete, while Florida is approximately 85% finished. Cane sugar yields have come in mostly as expected thus far, but maintain a significant premium to beet prices
  • The U.S. Department of Commerce recently increased Mexico’s export limit for raw sugar shipments into the U.S. by 150,000 short tons for the 2021/2022 crop year. Shipments must arrive by March 31st, 2022

Dry Beans

  • Dry bean bids remain firm, with mostly steady trade volumes reported over the last week. Prices remain well above last year’s levels across all dry bean categories due to lower production in 2021, according to analysts


  • The K.C. wheat futures market moved higher this week after having fallen from late November of last year to last week
  • The USDA raised their domestic all-wheat ending stocks projection for 2021/2022 by 30 million bushels last week, due to cuts to exports and feed use
  • Domestic basis offers dropped for the higher protein varieties over the last two weeks after having traded at record high levels
