Corn and soybean futures are higher on Tuesday after USDA late on Monday said planting of the two crops was running behind the five-year averages as rain sidelined planters.

The wheat markets were a little higher as next week’s forecast favors warm, dry weather for the central Plain, which may help the crop recover from the late April snow storm.
