Corn futures are a little higher and soybeans have modest gains as forecasts put more rain in the Midwest this week, which could delay planting.

Farmers were able to plant during the weekend  and on Monday but may be sidelined when the rain arrives.

Winter wheat markets are a little lower as recent rain likely helped that crop.
