WEEKLY NATIONAL GRAIN MARKET REVIEW
Compared to last week, grain and soybean bids traded moderately higher.
Soybeans found support from uncertainty in South American weather as reports of
dryness in some areas and heavy rainfall in others is believed to be pressuring
harvest production. Also strong soybean demand from China is helping to
pressure global supplies. Wheat followed corn higher and persistent dryness in
the Southern Plains helped to boost wheat. Some areas of the Mid-section of the
country saw significant rain, while others saw minimal moisture. The weather
was turbulent, with above normal temperatures in parts of the U.S. early in the
week and lows at zero by the end. Corn weekly export sales came in at a total
of 253,300 tonnes. Soybeans had strong export sales totaling 1.253,000 tonnes.
