Domestic ethanol inventory recouped a portion of the prior-week decline as blending demand backed off a near-two-month high and despite lower plant production for a second straight week in March, the Energy Information Administration reported on Wednesday, March 18.
Rain and snow are in store for the interior Northwest Tuesday, while the Delta and Mid-South will see light to moderate rain. Other primary crop areas will be mainly dry. The Delta and Mid-South continue to have saturated soils and flood potential with repeated rain. The northwestern snow system crosses into the Northern Plains during the next couple days, bringing stress to livestock and hindering delayed corn harvest. Some field work is possible elsewhere, notably in the central and Southern Plains. » More DTN Weather Commentary
