The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Monday (USDA) morning said that private exporters reported the sale of 198,000 metric tons of soybeans to China for delivery in the 2019/20 marketing year. Another sale of 240,000 metric tons of soybeans was reported for delivery to unknown destinations.
Corn futures received support from forecasts for wintry weather in western and northern stretches of the U.S. Midwest that could slow harvest.
