- Market Analysis
The Weekly Market Update provides a recap of agricultural industry news and analysis from the current week. Depending on the week, commentary may highlight USDA statistical reports, weather and crop conditions, commodity prices and markets, grain and oilseed trade, government policy, international agricultural developments or other relevant topic. The report also highlights the latest production, sales, and trade developments in plant nutrient markets around the world. We publish the report each Friday.

We highlight noteworthy crop supply and demand balance sheet changes for corn, soybeans and wheat as well as cover the USDA’s global grain and oilseed forecasts.
