OMAHA (DTN) -- A mixed forecast for Midwest harvest and favorable soil moisture in Brazil crop areas are the key weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.

MIXED HARVEST CONDITIONS

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for northern Midwest crop areas to have moderate to heavy rain and disruption in harvest the rest of this week. The remainder of the Midwest has drier conditions through late week, when rain develops and hinders activity.

RAIN FOR SOUTHERN PLAINS

In the Southern Plains, the forecast remains promising for rain to develop over the next week. This is promising for soil moisture for the next winter wheat crop.

NORTHERN PLAINS SHOWERS

The Northern Plains will have showers developing over the balance of this week, leading to some disruption in harvest.

STILL DRY IN DELTA

Delta crop areas continue with a dry-and-hot trend through the week, with favorable harvest conditions.

FAVORABLE BRAZIL MOISTURE

In central Brazil, showers continue in the forecast. Rainfall is beneficial for planting soybeans. Southern Brazil is ahead of average on soybean planting progress due to favorable moisture.

DRY IN BLACK SEA REGION

Ukraine and Russia have no significant precipitation forecast this week. This is unfavorable for early-developing winter wheat. The region is generally short to very short on soil moisture.

DRIER FOR NORTHEASTERN CHINA

Northeastern China has a warmer and drier forecast over the balance of this week. This combination will be favorable for crop ripening and harvest.

DRY PATTERN AGAIN IN AUSTRALIA

Major wheat areas of Australia have a dry forecast through the next week. Drought impact leads to declining crop prospects; in addition, Western Australia wheat sustained damage due to a hard freeze during the past weekend.

VARIABLE LATE-MONSOON INDIA RAIN

The late stages of the India monsoon are bringing showers to south India. Western India crop areas could use additional moisture. There is a chance for these areas to receive some rain over the next week.
