As durum harvest was winding down across the region, prices for durum remained relatively stable with most local elevators trading between $6.50-$6.75 per bushel. “That stability coincides with not much in the way of new market news,” commented Erica Olson, marketing specialist for the North Dakota Wheat Commission, adding that harvest was nearing the end with 95 percent of the harvest complete in North Dakota and 97 percent complete in Montana.
There continues to be some volatility in the Minneapolis futures market, unfortunately the latest trend seemed to be working a little lower in the middle of September, according to Jim Peterson, marketing director for the North Dakota Wheat Commission. “If we look at where national cash prices were in late August and early September, they were about $5.80 per bushel,” Peterson said.
The rally in the sunflower market this summer declined some as producers and the market began looking ahead to potential yields at harvest. Bird food prices set the early tone for the price rally in August, but those prices have fallen off lately. “The rally in August bird food prices led to a lot of crop being traded in the past month,” commented John Sandbakken, executive director of the National Sunflower Association in the association’s weekly newsletter.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
