Corn and soybeans held gains at midsession following another batch of daily export sales.
USDA on Wednesday said China bought soybeans and unknown destinations bought corn and soybeans. Weather forecasts remain favorable for the crops with the latest 6- to 10-day outlook showing hot but wet conditions next week in the U.S. Midwest.   
Wheat markets are higher as rain may slow the German harvest and the U.S. spring wheat harvest.
