Soybeans were higher overnight on concerns about dry weather in Brazil while wheat was slightly lower after rain fell in the Ukraine and is forecast in Russia, which will help their crops. Chaos theory in full effect. Beans were up about 3 cents while wheat was down just over a penny. In the US, the harvest continues, but slowly. In weather news, it's cold out there in much of Nebraska where a `hard-freeze warning' is now in effect. A `freeze warning' in which temperatures don't get quite as low, is in effect from basically Canada through New Mexico this morning. Check out all the details in today's 3 Big Things at http://www.agriculture.com/news/three-big-things/3-big-things-today-october-10.
Here's what happened overnight:
Brent Crude Oil = up 1.1%
West Texas Intermediate = up 1.3%
Dollar = down 0.3%.
Wall Street = U.S. stock futures higher in pre-market trading.
World Markets = Global stocks mixed as Spain problems persist.

D3 drought all summer, now we are working on filling the Mississippi River, not going to show as a drought year, average by extremes.
Forgot to mention more rain Saturday and Sunday, oh joy.
Noticed one of the neighborhood bto's left his combine and auger wagon full of corn last night...uncovered 1.15" in it so far.
