Interactive Crop Basis Tool

This interactive tool can be used to examine historical weekly nearby basis for corn, grain sorghum (milo), soybeans, and wheat for various locations in Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Oklahoma, and parts of Colorado and Texas. Basis is calculated by subtracting the nearby futures price from the cash price (Wednesday), where nearby is defined as the futures contract closest to expiration without going into the delivery month. Basis captures the effects of local supply and demand, as well as transportation costs, on commodity prices.
