Soybeans were lower overnight on investor concern that the talks between the US and China scheduled for this week won't bear much fruit. President Trump told Reuters earlier this week that he doesn't expect much from the mid-level talks, and the administration is set to impose tariffs on another $16 billion worth of Chinese goods starting on Thursday, though nobody is quite sure yet how the talks will affect those duties. Beans were down about 4 cents, corn lost about 3 cents and wheat was down 5-6 cents overnight. On the plus side, two well-respected ag economists said in a report that China will eventually have to turn to the US for beans as South America will run out before their next harvest. In weather news, more storms are on the way for parts of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa where record rain earlier this week caused the Missouri River to overrun its banks in places. Check out today's 3 Big Things for all the details.
