Early calls sharply higher for Thursday

Jeff Caldwell 03/17/2011 @ 8:01am Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

The grains are expected to borrow a little of the Luck o' the Irish on St. Patrick's Day, with corn, soybeans and wheat all expected to start out on the high side Thursday.

Early calls for the commodities are corn 15-17 cents higher, soybeans 15-17 higher and wheat 5-7 higher, according to private sources.

USDA released its weekly Export Sales Report Thursday morning, indicating wheat sales are 15% higher than last week, while corn sales are slightly higher. Soybean export sales are 64% lower than they were a week ago.
