Dry Weather in Argentina Pushed Corn Prices Up Slightly

Dry weather in Argentina gave corn prices a boost today, after falling to their lowest level in a month yesterday. Argentina is only second behind the U.S. in exporting of corn.

Projections are the conditions in Argentina will continue, as expectations are that less than 1 inch of rain will fall in the major agricultural regions of Argentina over the next couple of weeks.

Corn responded by moving up as high as $3.695 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade in electronic trade, while closing at $3.66-1/2 a bushel.
