What DTN Is Watching


The biggest factor for the grain and oilseed complex Friday morning are weather forecasts heading into the weekend. Will the U.S. Southern Plains see rain? Will the Northern Plains start to see its snow cover disappear? Will the Midwest see conditions warm enough to hasten along planting? All of these items and more are on the table early Friday.


Light rain showers are in store for the southwestern Plains Friday. This moisture is important for possible dryness easing. Other crop areas will be dry. Midwest field work remains delayed by cold temperatures and precipitation so far this month.
