Weather has turned more favorable in the Midwest with rain showers and seasonable temperatures helping to finish the soybean crop. Grains tried to reverse yesterday's losses on turnaround Tuesday, but could find little to support a rally once the markets opened. Rains have covered most of the Plains and Midwest over the past 3 to 5 days, bringing some yield optimism back to the markets.
