Due to accumulated damage on soybean, many growers are concerned about discounting and possible rejection at the point of sale.
Cargill is currently accepting soybeans at the Fayetteville location with low damage of 5% or less.
Cargill’s location at Selma in Johnston Co. is now open and is accepting beans with damage of 30% or less. The location is receiving 7 am to 3 pm on Fri. Oct. 23 and 7 am to 5 pm starting the week of Oct. 26.
Starting soon, Cargill Raleigh will be receiving only low moisture / low damage beans to fill bin bottoms.
Perdue Oilseeds reports they are accepting all producer beans and that the damage situation seems to be clearing up somewhat in the Northeast as the earlier maturity beans finish moving into the market.
ADM at the Kershaw, S.C. location raised the damage threshold for rejection to 20% earlier this week.
Recommended: utilize the services of the N.C. Department of Agriculture to test soybean samples if in doubt, and stay in touch with your merchandiser.
