The corn cash price was up Wednesday thanks to a higher basis as the May futures closed unchanged. The soybean cash price closed higher on a stronger basis and higher futures due to increased export demand as Brazil is experiencing shipping delays of new-crop beans due to port congestion. The HRW wheat cash price is higher, but closed almost 10 cents off its day high .
