Soybean futures were higher again overnight as forecasts continue to call for dry weather in Argentina. About two-thirds of the country will not see rain anytime soon, and the areas that will are fringe growing areas, forecasters said. Wheat futures were lower despite calls for continued dry, windy weather in the southern Plains. Beans rose about 8 cents, wheat lost 2-3 cents and corn rose 2 cents. Export sales, meanwhile, were better than expected for corn and soybeans but wheat sales missed. In weather news, it's dry and windy in the southern Plains, exacerbating the drought for winter wheat, while flooding continues in Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee, the NWS said.
