Corn futures ended marginally higher. Higher soybean and soymeal values offered support to corn. Concern increased due to hot and dry SA weather. There were estimates that 10 days of hot/dry Argentina weather could lower Argentina corn crop. There were estimates of a crop below 47 mmt vs USDA 49.5. Brazil’s corn estimates were as low as 113 mmt vs USDA  118. This week, Argentina dropped their rating of their corn crop from 58 G/E to 45. They also raised the percent of the crop soils that are dry from 31 to 42. Next 10 days Argentina could see well below normal rains and well above normal temps with some daytime highs exceeding 100F. Next week, USDA will revise US 2021 corn crop, estimate US Dec 1 corn stocks, US 2021/22 corn carryout and World 2021/22 corn end stocks.
