Crop markets have small moves as week nears close

Corn on track for higher week, while soy and winter wheat slip. (audio)

Corn, soybeans and wheat were lightly traded on Friday with little fresh crop-specific news available to inspire trader action. Corn futures are on track for a higher week, while soybeans and winter wheat are lower. Spring wheat remains higher for the week.

Rain and snow moves through Midwest the next few days, while the Plains hard red winter wheat areas should remain dry.
