Corn and soybeans are both up a few cents as they recover a small portion of what they lost yesterday after USDA’s bearish crop report.

The wheat markets are lower. Spring wheat posted the largest losses as that harvest advances in the northern Plains.

Weather forecasts are mostly favorable for the crops although next week’s outlook favors warmer weather for the Midwest.
