Crop markets are lower on Monday, with soybeans down the most as dry crop areas of Argentina and Brazil are forecast to receive rain this week and next week.

The frigid weather that covered most of the U.S. this weekend should gradually be replaced with warmer air. Highs above freezing are expected later this week.
