Welcome to PNW

Good Afternoon: August 3, 2015.

Wheat traded lower today on the close. Canadian Prairies are dry. India is dry.  On the minds of a lot of the traders is the speculation that the funds are getting out of the commodities market….this really seems somewhat odd that they would bail the market as the news of the El Nino is starting to build. If funds looking to even up their positions in the nearby look to have board increase and quite possibly short-lived. Strategy to buy calls now.

September Futures: CGO down ¼ @ $499; KC down 3 ¼ @ $489 ; Minney down 6 ½ @ $517.

PTL Flat Price: SW @ $5.68 (73), DNS @ $6.22 (105), HRW @ $5.61 (75), BLY @ $160.

What to watch for:

  • We are pleased to announce that the Mighty Mustard Pacific Gold and IdaGold have passed Certified Seed standards and are being shipped to distributors across the country. Please visit the Where To Buy page on MightyMustard.com for the most up-to-date information regarding availability.

 

- Mighty Mustard 2014 Harvest Update: The latest info!

  • The Pacific Gold seed has been cleaned and has passed Certified Seed Standards!  This seed will be moving out to all of our trusted distributors ASAP.
  • The IdaGold seed is being cleaned now and samples are already on their way to the lab.  We should have results back within 2 weeks.  If the seed passes Certification, it will be made available to all of our distributors ASAP.
  • Our Kodiak and White Gold crops essentially failed due to sustained high temps and no rain in the dryland growing areas this summer.  We did get a small amount of Kodiak harvested (and a very small amount of White Gold, but not enough to sell), but the seed did not meet Certified Seed standards due to the presence of a small amount of lambsquarter seed that we were unable to clean out.  These varieties will be unavailable this year.
