Soybeans try to extend Tuesday's rally

Dry forecast, higher crude prices give futures a lift. (Audio report)

Crude oil prices are also posting modest gains, despite another slump in Chinese stocks. Corn and wheat faded in their attempt to move higher after the start of trading in Europe, despite concerns about overseas production, as traders hone in on analysts’ estimates for the U.S.
