This is Bob Larson with the Market Line Report for Friday, Feb 22nd. News of trade talks with China spark Thursday's grain market. From the floor of the CME in Chicago, here's Terry Roggensack.

ROGGENSACK ... "We've got a lot of news flowing out of the China-U.S. trade negotiations. Biggest factor here overnight was China indicating that they might be willing to buy an additional $30-billiono worth of U.S. agricultural products. This is a huge number. Over the past five or six years, they typically buy $20-to-$25-billion worth of ag products so this would be an additional $30-billion above what they're buying, very supportive potential for corn, for DDG's, and for ethanol purchases. All three of these could support higher corn prices down the road."
