11:56 EDTMOS, AGU, POT, CFFertilizer makers advance after Mosaic's earnings beat expectations
Mosaic (MOS) shares are climbing after the company reported higher than expected second quarter earnings per share and revenue that was roughly in-line with expectations. "Agricultural fundamentals are exceptionally strong around the globe, and that bodes well for Mosaic over the long term," said Mosaic CEO Jim Prokopanko on the company's earnings conference call. U.S. farmers have a great deal of cash, and will use it on products that help them obtain the largest crops possible, added the CEO. However, there are some short-term negatives, as Prokopanko said he would have been happier if China - which earlier this week signed a new contract for Canadian potash - had agreed to pay higher prices for the fertilizer. Furthermore, India's regulations continue to harm the industry, the CEO indicated. Despite these challenges, demand for the company's products in free markets remain strong and should accelerate, Prokopanko reported. In late morning trading, Mosaic (MOS) climbed 2.68% to $58.29, while fellow fertilizer makers rose as well. Agrium (AGU) advanced 1.22% to $103.48, Potash (POT) added 0.98% to $41.34 and CF Industries (CF) climbed 1.73% to $209.83.

12:03 EDTMOS, AGU, POT, CFUSDA raises U.S. corn yield forecast to record
In its monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's corn yield forecast is raised 4.3 bushels per acre to a record 171.7 bushels. Corn production for 2014/15 is forecast 363 million bushels higher at a record 14,395 million bushels. Total 2014/15 corn usage is projected at 13,605 million bushels, up 170 million from last month. Although a record, usage is expected up just 5 million bushels from 2013/14 as export prospects remain constrained by large foreign carryin stocks, the USDA wrote.
