Market Monitor May 2022

05 May 2022

Spring planting in the Northern Hemisphere is underway amid high commodity prices but high input costs as well.

Early indications for the United States and the European Union suggest that higher prices for soybeans and other oilseeds will encourage producers to increase oilseed plantings. For wheat, increased acreage in Canada might help fill some of the global deficit in supplies. However, the outlook is less favourable for India and the United States.

Due to the tightness in global stocks and the uncertainty caused by the conflict in Ukraine, price volatility is likely to remain high this year as markets will focus on weather, crop conditions of fall-planted wheat and progress for spring planting and development later this summer. Of increasing concern are export restrictions, which further exacerbate price volatility and jeopardize global supplies.

The next AMIS Market Monitor will be released on 2 June 2022.
