Corn futures are showing fractional losses at midday. The US cash average price as of Monday afternoon was $3.36 1/2 according to DTN, 1 3/4 cents off the same time last year. That would put the national average basis at -30 1/2 cents, 6 3/4 cents stronger than a year ago. Following Thursday’s update to the USDA export projection, corn export commitments are now 65.34% of that number. That now lags the average of 68% and last year’s 74%. Dr. Michael Cordonnier trimmed his projected Brazil 17/18 corn production number another 2 MMT to 86 MMT. That is 9 MMT below the February USDA estimate.
