After getting bashed last week by the escalating trade dispute between the U.S. and China, soybeans are trying to reverse higher this morning.

South Korea joined Japan in suspending imports from Canada as a result. More heavy rains are headed to the Corn Belt this week, though some of last week’s storms were too much of a good thing, flooding some fields in Illinois with nine inches of rain.
