Winter wheat markets are a little lower today as traders await reports from the central Plains on crop conditions following the Sunday snowstorm. Agronomists said it may be a about week before accurate assessments can be made.

Corn and soybeans are a little higher as more rain moves through the Midwest today. Drier weather is expected there by the weekend.
