Soybean futures were higher early following another daily export sale to China, but turned mixed near midday as weather forecasts lack threatening conditions for the Midwest crop.
Crop progress data is due later on Monday with corn’s condition possibly slipping a little, while soybeans should be about unchanged.
Friday’s USDA crop report looms and traders will soon take positions ahead of that.

Listen to the report using the audio link on this page.
