The corn cash price was lower on Thursday after the corn futures closed lower for the 10th session in a row, but basis remained firm as interior demand is strong. The soybean cash price was weaker on Thursday with some of the weakness in the soybean futures due to better weather forecasts for Argentina and Brazil. The wheat cash price was lower as well, with all of the grains feeling pressure from a stronger dollar today.
