Corn futures are up about 4 cents as dry weather in Brazil may be hurting the crop there. Meanwhile soybeans are higher as more rain in Argentina threatens that soy crop, which is ready for harvest.
Wheat futures are higher amid reports of technical buying. The gains in wheat are despite widespread beneficial rain this past weekend in the central and southern Plains.
