Corn, soybean and wheat futures are higher at midday on Monday as they recover a little from last week’s lower week.

Weather forecasts are largely favorable for crops this week with scattered showers likely for much of the Midwest.

Attention is on Thursday’s USDA report, in which the government is expected to lower crop production and ending stocks estimates for corn and soybeans.
