What DTN Is Watching


Local weather is still a concern in many areas of the Midwest after last week's storm and flooding issues. USDA's weekly report of export inspections is due out at 10:00 a.m. CDT and traders continue to watch for any signs of a trade agreement with China.


Dry conditions will cover all major crop areas Monday. Temperatures will still be well below normal for the season in northern areas, and seasonal to above normal south. The drier trend favors field work in southern areas and will ease flooding in the western Midwest and north-central Plains.
