Spring Growers Meeting

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

8:00 AM

SEL Event Center,

Pullman, WA

Good Afternoon: February 11, 2016

Wheat values tried to rally early today but a lack of follow through buying doomed the effort late in the day. Weekly export sales at 263,300 MT in the middle of expectations – including 40k of SWW. Egypt in tonight for an unspecified amount of cheap wheat. Funds added another 9k to their short position. Russian AG ministry thinking they will likely keep the export tax at zero.

Portland Flat Price: SW @ 5.16 (.58), DNS @ 6.06 (1.20), HRW @ 5.39 (.95), BLY @ 145. 

Call for club wheat premium

Our next marketing meeting is February 17th @ 7am @ SEL in Pullman.

- Mighty Mustard Pacific Gold & IdaGold Meet Certified Seed Standards

  • 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.
