Corn, soybeans and wheat are lower on Monday as traders return from the three-day Easter weekend. Soybeans moved down following a report showing smaller-than-expected March crush.

Rainy weather continues to inhibit spring planting. Forecasts show more rain in the Midwest the next few days.

Weekly soybean export inspections were down sharply from a week ago and were at the low-end of trade forecasts. Corn inspections matched forecasts, while wheat beat forecasts by a modest margin.
