OMAHA (DTN) -- Cold weather this week threatening the winter wheat belt and a rainy week delaying fieldwork and planting in the Corn Belt, are the primary weather items for the commodity trade's attention Tuesday.

COOL, WET FOR MIDWEST

The DTN ag weather forecast calls for cool, wet weather this week to halt fieldwork and planting. Improving conditions are now seen south of I-80 next week. Episodes of cool, unsettled weather are likely to continue in the major growing areas north of I-80 next week and will keep planting progress slow.
