OMAHA (DTN) -- Dry conditions over most of the central U.S. for harvest and an improved chance for rain in central Brazil are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Monday.
FAVORABLE MIDWEST HARVEST CONDITIONS
The DTN ag weather forecast calls for generally favorable harvest conditions in the Midwest during the next seven to 10 days. Any shower activity will help recharge soil moisture. No damaging cold is expected.
WIDESPREAD SOUTHERN PLAINS RAIN
In the Southern Plains, rain this week is very timely and beneficial to winter wheat planting and development.
FAVORABLE DELTA TREND
The Delta will see continued dry and favorable conditions for maturing and harvesting crops this week.
NORTHERN PLAINS SHOWERS
In the Northern Plains, rain this week will disrupt early harvest but bring some recharge to soil moisture along with easing of extreme drought conditions. No damaging cold weather is expected this week.
DRY FOR PRAIRIES HARVEST
There are no significant harvest concerns this week in the Canadian Prairies.
IMPROVED BRAZIL RAIN CHANCE
In central Brazil, rain is needed to initiate soybean planting.
Scattered showers are expected to develop later in the week.
STILL DRY IN EASTERN AUSTRALIA
Eastern Australia wheat areas remain in the grip of a dry pattern. Very little rain is forecast this week. The dryness will likely result in production loss.
