Soybeans hit a 10-year low overnight after the Trump Administration imposed tariffs on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and China said it would retaliate. The new levies cover thousands of products including vegetables and fruits, along with a host of industrial products, but it's unclear how China will strike back considering its imports of US goods totals less than $200 billion. Beans were down about 4 cents, corn was off by a penny and wheat rose 3-4 cents overnight. The new levies will begin Sept. 24 and at first be 10%, but will jump to 25% on Jan. 1, Trump said in a statement. In weather news, hotter-than-normal weather along with potential thunderstorms are possible in parts of Kansas and Iowa today, according to the National Weather Service.
