Corn- Unchanged
On the overnight corn is only trading a fraction mixed up and down, and the overall demand remains strong for both domestic and export as we continue through the heart of harvest. In a few days the western part of the corn belt could see some light precipitation which could slow harvest activity. The USDA is reporting that harvest is at 49% complete which is a little bit behind most guesses.

 
Soybeans- Down 4 ½
Soybeans start the day down 4 ½. The U.S. harvest has seen major progress the past week (It’s amazing the amount of acres you can cover in a short time with todays equipment), but the export market still doesn’t have China, as the relationship still appears a bit stressed. USDA pegged U.S. harvest at about 53% complete which is well behind the 69% average. We are seeing some activity of Argentina sell and ship soybeans to China.

 
Wheat- up ½
Spring wheat is up a fraction on the overnight as no real new news in the wheat market. USDA reports that winter wheat seeding is about 72% complete which is a bit behind the 5 year average of 77%. Australia begins their harvest on probably the smallest crop in 10 years.
