Soybean stocks were 913 million bushels, which is also below trade estimates, yet remains the largest September ending stock by a large margin. Increased soybean purchases by China in the fourth quarter likely kept this figure under the one billion mark.

September 1 wheat stocks are 2.38 billion bushels, which was in line with trade estimates.

The USDA’s 2019 total wheat production estimates were in line with trade estimates. All wheat combined production was estimated at 1.962 billion bushels, which is less than 1% below their August figure. Chicago wheat was the outlier, with soft red winter wheat production lower than trade expectations and 7% reduced from the August estimate.
