Soybean futures are lower. US Midwest weather has been warm and dry. Some are lowering US soybean yield to 49.5. This could eventually push SX over 14.00. Midweek temps cool with rains possible the weekend. Weekly US crop ratings should decline. Trade looks for US 2022/23 soybean carryout at 270 vs USDA 260. This due to lower exports.

Wheat futures made new lows on talk of higher Russia supplies and record Russia wheat exports. US and EU wheat prices are on the decline to try to buy export demand.
