Soybeans 18 higher
Soybeans higher also due to fact of progress made with the Chinese trade delegation over the last few days. Shanghai’s JC Intelligence group suggests that China could increase US soybean imports to more than 40-50 MMT vs the 33 MMT purchased in 2017.
Wheat 1-3 higher

Keep a close watch on the dryness in Northwest ND and the southern Canadian prairies. Weather in Australia has been extremely dry and the 6-10 outlook also looks drier than normal.
