It's late in the growing season and on top of all the rain we have had, it's highly unlikely that there was any downside adjustments.

You were right Jim, no downward adjustment...........the crop improved!

Corn +1%  beans +2%.

A bit surprising considering all the rains in parts of the belt.

Cotton deteriorated a bit.

Doesn't seem like beans are getting help from anywhere to support prices.  I read this morning that Swine flu continues to spread through China.  Transport of live hogs and pig products have been banned across 10 regions.
