    It seems like everyone is switching to the december contract instead of september on wheat and corn.

    Is there some fundamental reasons related to crops... ? Is it always the case that september contract as no interest?

  2. September is a "swing" month between the old-crop and new-crop. Commercial users build-up bigger positions in the "harvest month" because that's where the big supply will be later on.
