Wheat futures, under heavy selling pressure in the past few weeks, rebounded on Tuesday, buoyed by falling crop estimates from Stats Canada and the French farm ministry. Corn, soybeans and bean oil had some early tailwinds from rising energy prices and inflationary concerns, but beans faded late on weaker meal futures.
September corn closed up 6 1/4 cents per bushel and December corn was up 7 cents. September soybeans closed up 4 cents and November soybeans were down 2 1/4 cents. December KC wheat closed up 15 1/2 cents, December Chicago wheat was up 13 3/4 cents and December Minneapolis wheat was up 10 cents.
