National Grain Market Summary:

Compared to Friday, cash bids for wheat, corn, and sorghum are mostly higher, while soybeans were lower.  Storms and flooding concerns have pushed the corn market higher for the fourth consecutive day with help from a strong export market.  Soybeans have also gained support from the weather, but unlike corn, it has not gotten additional support from exports.  The lower world wheat production has continued to provide support in wheat markets.
