Jerry Gulke, president of the Gulke Group, thinks that’s certainly a possibility.
“Market psychology is just as important sometimes as the weather itself,” he says.
The weather forecast for the next ten days does appear to be more forgiving with less extreme heat, Gulke adds.
If that is indeed the case, that gets many places past pollination and marching onward toward harvest, he says.
Furthermore, it’ll take “some big states to have a problem” to counteract the boost in U.S. supplies reported in the June 30 USDA stocks report, plus a larger-than-expected South American crop now being reported, Gulke says.
