The Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota data is not in yet, but many are discussing the potential for MY  2014 US Soybean yields to score a new record above 47 bu/acre.

Funds had been active sellers with rains falling across some of the drier areas of the Midwest. Analysts believe that fund managers are giving up with their net long Corn and Soybean positions heading into the end of Summer.

The weekly Enthol report, released by the US Energy Information Administration(EIA), was deemed as slightly Bearish. Weekly US Ethanol production for the week ending 15 August, was 937,000 BPD which is nearly 1% better than last week.

There is no truth to the rumor that Ukraine will limit the amount of milling wheat that is available for export. Commercial sources denied such rumors which pushed Wheat futures higher Tuesday.
