WEEKLY NATIONAL GRAIN MARKET REVIEW
Compared to last week, grain and soybean bids closed mixed. Corn and
soybeans saw support from hot temperatures and no rain in parts of the Midwest.

demand. However, corn yield estimates from the Pro-Farmer tour remain for the
most part higher than expected which limited the gains. Corn had weekly exports
sales totaling 492,600 tonnes with 58,200 tonnes for 2012-2013. Soybeans had
bullish export sales totaling 946,900 tonnes with 20,900 tonnes for 2012-2013.
