This article focuses on a strategy for selling the 2005 wheat crop. This strategy should depend on how wheat is normally sold. However, most of farmers want an idea of what wheat prices are going to do before developing a marketing plan. Realistically, 2005/06 wheat marketing-year wheat prices could be anywhere from $2.50 to $4. However, the odds are the average will be somewhere around $3.30 per bushel. This projection is based on estimates U.S. and foreign wheat production and U.S. and foreign wheat use. Everything about supply and demand for the 2005/06 marketing year is unknown. However., using current estimates as benchmarks facilitates making price and price trend estimates. The benchmarks may then be used to monitor changing price expectations.
