Morning CME Globex Update:July corn is down 3/4 cent, July soybeans up 5 1/2 cents, and July Chicago wheat is down 4 3/4 cents. Southern Minnesota and Wisconsin are getting the bulk of Friday morning's rain and that will add to planting delays in those already wet areas. The issue of bird flu in China appears to be diminishing and that is one bullish change for new crop soybeans. The hard red winter wheat crop remains seriously dry with no significant rain in the forecast for the Southern Plains.
