Spring Wheat Futures Higher as Rain Threatens Quality

Corn and soybeans higher ahead of weekend. (Midday audio)

Spring wheat futures rose more than 10 cents a bushel on Friday as rain was forecast this weekend in the Northern Plains, which could halt harvesting and  hurt grain quality.

Corn and soybeans were higher, with September soybeans posting strong gains in reaction to tight supplies ahead of the fall harvest.
