Effective May 1, the CBOT changed the method that they use to determine Daily Price Limits. These limits will be in place until November 1st when they will again reset. CBOT will use the settlement price over 45 consecutive days, multiplied by a factor of 7% and then rounded to the nearest 5 cents to determine what the limit will be. Should two or more contracts within the first five listed non-spot contracts settle at limit, the daily price limit for all contract months will be increased by 50%. If no contract months trade at the new expanded limits, all months will revert back to the initial limit.
The Syngenta seed corn varieties Agrisure Viptera and Duracade do not yet have full export approval at this time. As Ludlow Coop ships rail corn that could end up in the export market, we are asking that you please take the necessary precautions when ordering seed for this coming year. Ludlow Coop will not be accepting any corn variety that does not have full export approval. Please contact us if you have questions.
