Soybeans: Down 3-5
Lower this morning as South American weather is improving; Argentina saw some scattered rains over the weekend but forecast looks to be dry after that. Brazil remains dry for now, but showers will build later in the week, relieving dryness stress. Export Inspections released at 10 AM this morning; Soybeans, 8.0 needed; 9.4 last week.

Wheat: Down 1-4
More rain is expected across winter wheat areas over the next couple weeks, and crop conditions are expected to be steady to 1% better because of the beneficial moisture. Spring wheat planting progress is expected to be at 40% complete compared to 27% last week.
