CBOT corn prices slumped by 5% last week


Over the period under review (June 16-23), CBOT corn prices slumped by 4.43%. In the spot market, the US corn export prices lost USD 5/MT (July delivery).

The weather remained the main bearish factor - rains are forecasted in producing regions of the Midwest, which should have a positive effect on corn conditions, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Besides, meteorologists forecast a moderate temperature regime, which contributes to normal crops development during the pollination stage. Corn conditions in the USA remained unchanged (67% - in good and excellent conditions, 75% in 2016), but the share of corn in excellent condition increased to 12% (10% the previous week).
