CHICAGO/PARIS. Market and price trends with first estimates.

Wheat: Western Europe's crop quality predominantly good
The wheat market started the new week a little firmer. Better export opportunities for US wheat due to the fall in the US dollar provided a boost. The fact that the International Grains Council (IGC) had reduced the world wheat crop by 6 to 762 million metric tonnes also supported the market. In France, 72% of the wheat crop was threshed, but the trade still lacked an overview of the quality north of the Loire and Seine. In the south and middle of Germany the trade spoke of good qualities with high hl weights and sedimentation values. The protein values were in the good middle range. The producer prices for milling wheat are given as EUR 150 to 165 per metric tonne. The September date for milling wheat was EUR 190 per metric tonne DDP Rhineland, EUR 15-20 per metric tonne above last year. At the start of the season, the Ukraine had the lowest stocks for ten years at 1.8 million metric tonnes of wheat.

Corn: China's import rate at 51%

In the course of trading, corn fell on the futures exchanges in the morning, but increased slightly in France. In the USA, rainfall in the Midwest temporarily put pressure on prices. However, the fall in the US dollar exchange rate improves export opportunities. US traders are expecting higher corn exports of possibly 10 million metric tonnes of corn due to lower corn supplies this season. If Beijing also wants to further increase ethanol processing, Beijing has reached 51% of the previous year's quota with corn imports of 3.66 million metric tonnes in the first half of the year. At the start of the season, supplies in the Ukraine were 22% lower than last year at 2.0 million metric tonnes of corn.
