Morning CME Globex Update:December corn is up 10 1/4 cents, November soybeans are up 16 3/4 cents, and December Chicago wheat is up 6 3/4 cents. Grains are higher Tuesday morning after Farm Service Agency (FSA) reported prevented acres of corn at 3.573 million acres, soybeans at 1.687 million acres and wheat at 1.977 million acres, all higher than their August estimates. The new numbers will be incorporated into USDA's October WASDE report, but it is not completely clear what the new USDA estimates will be.
