Good morning.


agricultures futures sank overnight on improving weather after about opening as expected post USDA crop progress report. Positioning ahead of the June 30 reports is starting to ramp up. WTI crude oil was $0.51 lower earlier. News is fairly light. Iran is back
in for meal. Overnight models suggested an increase in rainfall for the July 4-6 period for the ECB, an increase for the Northern Plains 6-8, and an increase for the heart of the Midwest next weekend.
The majority of the US Midwest
will be dry until later this week but milder temperatures should slow condition declines bias the dry areas before rising starting with the southwestern Corn Belt Wed-Fri.  The Canadian Prairies will turn drier over the next week. Europe and the western CIS
will be trending wetter this week. Third month Malaysian palm oil futures decreased 44 ringgit to 3675, and cash decreased $15.00 to $830/ton. Offshore values were leading SBO lower by about 297 points this morning and meal $3.10 short ton lower. USDA US crop
ratings declined for corn and soybeans. For corn, they were down 5 points, lower than expected, to lowest in decades for this time of year (1988 lowest). Soybeans were down 3 to 51, the lowest since 1996. The trade looked for US G/E corn and soybean ratings
to be down 3, and no change for SW and WW ratings. Spring wheat declined 1 point and winter wheat was unchanged. See tables after the text for production updates.


had a typo in our CP table for the US corn yield. It should be 173.0 bu/ac, same as what we had in the S&D published last week. We are at
50.1 for soybeans.

US corn futures started the evening session higher. Prices sold off overnight from widespread selling in the agriculture markets and lower WTI crude oil. The weather forecast calls for improving changes for rainfall next week
for the US Midwest, especially over the July 8-10 weekend.

Rain during the next two weeks will be below normal for parts of the Midwest, but just enough to support early pollination.

We had a typo on the table for the US corn yield. We are at 173.0.



USDA US corn export inspections as of June 22, 2023, were 542,727 tons, within a range of trade expectations, below 830,999 tons previous week and compares to 1,246,950 tons year ago. Major countries included Mexico for 248,810
tons, Japan for 182,354 tons, and El Salvador for 53,245 tons.







Soybeans, meal and soybean oil are lower from an improving weather forecast and lower lead in outside product markets. Positioning ahead of the USDA report is starting to pick up. Iran is back in for soybean meal after passing
last week.

November soybean support is seen near $12.46, it current 50-day MA.

Watch the soybean oil share as it continues to rally after seeing a route mid last week. A temporary setback could occur this week.

Third month Malaysian palm oil futures decreased 44 ringgit to 3675, and cash decreased $15.00 to $830/ton.

China futures were higher with soybeans up 0.4%, meal up 0.3%, SBO 0.6% higher and palm up 1.3%.

Nearby Rotterdam vegetable oils were mixed meal 7-9 euros lower.

Offshore values were leading SBO lower by about 297 points this morning and meal $3.10 short ton lower.

USDA US soybean export inspections as of June 22, 2023, were 141,158 tons, within a range of trade expectations, below 179,548 tons previous week and compares to 476,951 tons year ago. Major countries included Mexico for 68,683
tons, Japan for 40,828 tons, and Indonesia for 11,508 tons.
