Chicago Agriculture Commodities Opened Higher


Chicago agriculture commodities opened higher on the 1st trading day of 2018, as severe cold continued to hit many parts of North America.

As of 1557 GMT, March Corn was up 2.5c at 3.5325 bu,

March Wheat was up 7.5c at 4.345 bu, and

March Soybean +5c at 9.6675 bu.

Bitter cold prevailed across grain-growing US Midwest, leading to worries that record-low temperatures would result in less yield.

Even in the Southern plains, actual temperatures are now as low as -5 degrees Celsius, according to weather broadcasts.

Plants without a protective layer of snow are at risk of suffering from Winter-kill.

However, the actual damage will not be known until the Spring, said agriculture analysts.
