Negotiations have begun in Moscow to extend the Ukraine export grain deal between Russia and UN representatives. Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations Martin Griffiths is leading the UN delegation, a heavy weight in the UN hierarchy.

We expect someone will not be able to keep his mount shut and whip lash the corn and wheat markets.

Had a decent SB crop (58-60 BPA here) and looking for 185 bushel corn based on the 150 harvested acres of 1000 total corn acres.
China issued a decree urging its citizens to leave Ukraine and surrounding areas immediately. They know something we do not know.
