Weather: Rains fell over the past 24 hours from the southern Plains up through the heart of the Corn Belt; action will expand through tomorrow across the Midwest then cover the southern belt again later in the week, with weekend rains on tap for the belt as well.

EARLY MARKET FEATURES
Corn – Lower than expected corn plantings threw more fuel on corn price movement overnight. More rains over the next two weeks, further flooding and the calendar are arguments for extending strength in corn prices
Beans – Prices have been buoyed overnight by continued slow planting progress due to continuing rains. Fundamentals for beans are not great, but short covering continues to add a little “gas’ to soybean prices. Would think it to be advantageous to take note and take action on the higher price moves
