What will be in a better position relative to its price today come fall, Minn. wheat or soybeans?
I'll grow a little wheat as always but I'm trying to figure out how much to do. It looks like we won't have a super early spring here as we've had the last few years. If conditions are fit on April 1 hard to not want to plant wheat here instead of waiting to plant corn. We won't be thinking of that on April 1 this year it appears. Minneapolis wheat has been doing well lately compared to the last few years but will this hold or is it just a mirage? And I know a lot of people are bearish beans and have been since October but they haven't fell over yet, been holding their price decent even after the SA crop is in.
So, what'll be better % +/- to today's price this fall, beans or wheat?
