OMAHA (DTN) — USDA increased the 2021-22 soybean yield by nearly a bushel to 55.5 bushels per acre (bpa) on Tuesday, increasing soybean production to 4.448 billion bushels (bb) while also increasing corn yield slightly, raising corn production for the 2021-22 corn crop to 15.019 bb.

USDA also dropped 2021-22 wheat ending stocks to 580 million bushels (mb), the lowest ending stocks in 14 years, based largely on lowered production.

USDA on Tuesday released the monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) for October.

According to DTN Lead Analyst Todd Hultman, Tuesday’s new U.S. ending stocks estimates were bearish for corn and soybeans, neutral for wheat, while Tuesday’s world ending stocks estimates were bearish for corn and soybeans but bullish for wheat.
