Morning CME Globex Update: July corn is up 3 1/4 cents, July soybeans are up 1 1/2 cents, and July K.C. wheat is up 14 cents. July K.C. wheat is trading higher early Monday after a weekend of hot and dry weather intensified drought conditions in the southwestern Plains and fighting in Ukraine spread to the port city of Odessa. Corn and soybeans are modestly higher Monday after Friday afternoon's CFTC data confirmed increased noncommercial support for both grains.
