    Wheat spikes higher, but then retreats after news of China buying 116K tons from the U.S., the largest amount since 2005. A major drought in China's main wheat-growing region has eased recently, but a short crop is still feared. JJG +0.5%, GRU -0.4%.

    The hope for a big U.S. wheat crop to take pressure off prices takes a blow from the worst drought in Texas and parts of the Midwest in decades, Additionally, beef prices could rise even more as the drought forces cattle farmers to reduce herds. JJG -0.1%. COW +0.4%.

    Grains continue to get beat up, all closing either limit down, or close to it. Events in Japan will be blamed, but prices actually peaked 2-6 weeks ago, and have been falling steadily since. JJG -6.0%, CORN -5.3%, JJA -5.9%.

    The earthquake may have been the trigger for selling in the grain pits today, but it's hard to see how it will affect demand. Wheat, beans, and rice have been in sharp declines for more than a month, corn since early March. JJG -4.0% YTD, CORN +3.8% YTD.

    Despite near record prices, Russian farmers reduce planted wheat acreage as a ban on exports forces sales internally at a 22% discount - more fuel to those who believe confused government policy, as much as surging demand, causes higher prices. JJG +0.1%, JJA +0.6%.

    Elevated food prices may be part of the new reality, says the IMF, as it will take years for farmers to meaningfully expand production. Rising demand reflects "structural changes in the global economy that will not be reversed." Putting corn into gas tanks isn't helping matters.

    Australia's agriculture bureau sounds a contrary signal, saying food costs could tumble in 2011 as high prices draw out more supply. Adverse weather and government policies are the issue, not the ability to produce more food says the bureau's chief analyst. JJA -0.4%. JJG -0.3%. SGG -2.4%.

    Just another day at the office in the grain pits - corn gives up a month worth of gains on Monday and Tuesday only to gain it all back and close about unchanged for the week. Beans, wheat, and rice see similar, but not quite as dramatic reversals. JJG +3.7%. CORN +3.8%. AGU +2.9%. POT +3.4%.

    The carnage in the grain markets looks to have driven out at least a portion of the weak and speculative longs. A new base from which to rally, or the start of a bear market? JJG +0.8%. CORN +0.7%. AGU +2.2%. POT +3.7%.

    Pounded yesterday and down further this morning, the grains stage a reversal to close green for the day. Might they lead equities?  JJG +2.4%. CORN +3.3%. GRU +2.1%.

    Wheat took a beating yesterday and stands 17% below its peak of 2 weeks ago, but China may lend support to the market. China is a minor player in the global wheat trade, but the drought threatens to change that, at least for this year. Premarket: JJG -0.6%.

    Corn and soybean futures trade limit-down as commodities funds liquidate positions. While most industry insiders remain bullish, new supply from South America and the unknown of the USDA outlook later this week is pressuring the complex. CORN -5.3%. DBA -3.7%. DAG -9.3%.

    Gold and oil catch bids, but traders are using the events in Libya as an excuse to sell commodity markets, many of which have had remarkable runs. The grains and cotton are particularly hard hit. CORN -3.6%. JJG -3.0%. BAL -4.1%. JJC -1.8%.

    Commodity bull Josh Brown thinks the agriculture story is getting somewhat crowded. He notes a recent paean to the group, well done, but the kind of story that gets written close to tops. JJA +1.7%. CORN +2.0%. BAL +6.2%. JO +1.8%. SGG -1.1%. JJG +1.3%.

    The value of irrigated farmland in the Kansas City Fed's district jumps nearly 15% in Q4 from a year earlier. One red flag: cash rental rates rise just 6%, making much of the 15% pop a speculative bet, and maybe a reason banks are tightening lending standards. Full report here.

    Carl Weinberg postulates Chinese hoarding of grain far beyond its needs is a major factor driving higher food prices. Weinberg believes China is concerned about the possibility of famine or social unrest, or perhaps they figure nearly $1T in Treasuries is enough.
