Soybean yield for the U.S. was a surprise coming in at 49.8 BPA, down from 50.5 BPA last month and below the expectation of 50.6 BPA by the trade. Corn ending stocks are now at 1.172 billion bushels, soybeans ending stocks are at 200 million bushels and wheat ending stocks are at 576 million bushels. The wheat number is the lowest in 15 years.
