Soybean futures are lower for the third straight session on Tuesday as the expected dry weather in the Midwest this week should aid the harvest. Iowa’s harvest may be slow to resume in many areas following the rain and flooding there.
In exports, USDA said China bought 4.4 million bushels of soybeans. That is the second daily soybean sale announced this week. The first sale went to unknown destinations.
