Tuesday began with a bang with both soybeans and Minneapolis wheat rushing to solid gains on declining crop conditions; November beans were up 30 cents at one point. However, by midmorning much of the strength had dissipated with the cooler weather forecast ahead; November barely hung on to close higher and Minneapolis wheat was near unchanged.
December corn closed down 1/2 cent per bushel, November soybeans finished up 1 3/4 cents, September KC wheat closed up 2 1/2 cents, September Chicago wheat ended down 2 1/2 cents and September Minneapolis wheat settled down 1/2 cent.
