The Portland Export market has increased the test weight discounts for Soft White Wheat and Club Wheat effective October 12th, 2015. Unfortunately, we cannot absorb this increase and we are forced to pass this increase along to our growers. For more information on this, please do not hesitate to contact our marketing group.

Good Afternoon: November 30, 2015.

The market closed mixed for the day. HRW ended on the plus side on concerns of damage in the Ukraine. Winter wheat conditions came in at 55% G/E above the average trade guess of 54%. Emergence was reported at 93% compared to 90% last week, 94% last year and 93% on average. This is the last conditions report from the USDA until next April. Dollar continuing to rally hampering any new export sales. The fundamentals aren’t showing much with little new input news to get really excited about. Weekly export inspections look to be neutral to bearish.

March Futures closed with CGO down 3 ½ @ 475 ½, KCY up 6 ¼ @ 472 ¾, MINNEY up 1 ¼ @ 507 ¾.

Portland Flat Price: SW @ 540 (.65), DNS @ 6.48 (1.40), HRW @ 5.73 (1.00), BLY @ 150.

- 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.

For an updated list of Mighty Mustard distributors with current inventory, please visit our Where To Buy page.
