Soybeans were higher in overnight trading on a strong export sales report and continued optimism about demand after the US and EU announced a deal in which European countries would buy more of the oilseeds from the US. Beans rose 6 cents, while corn was down a penny and wheat dropped 5-6 cents overnight. Export sales for beans surged week-to-week as the Netherlands was again the big buyer, and wheat sales improved. Corn sales, however, dropped in the seven days that ended on July 19, the USDA said. In weather news, it's relatively quiet out there with only some thunderstorms possible again in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. Check out today's 3 Big Things for all the details.
